Random Tuesday Thoughts


  • I woke this morning to find River had come into our room, climbed up on the bed, and put heart sticker on my nose. Then he walked out.
  • Do you ever find yourself doing something completely useless, but you can't stop yourself? I feel that way after I've read an US Weekly cover to cover, watched a Jon and Kate Plus 8 marathon, or, like last night, spent hours scrolling through You Suck at Craigslist. Seriously. Don't look. You'll get sucked in and next thing you know it's 3am and you're covered in chip crumbs.
  • I was at a coffee shop on Sunday afternoon and, as I was placing my drink order, I saw a basket of 50% off pastries. Who can pass up day-old pastries? Not me! I asked for a couple muffins and a wheat bagel. The woman behind the counter looked at me like I had mold growing out of my nose. "What kind of bagel do you want?" I pointed to the wheat bagel and said, "I'd like the wheat bagel, please." Oh silly woman, her eyes said. "That's a cinnamon raisin bagel." I told her I'd take it and walked back to the park (where Thom and River were waiting for me) with my partly-stale, cheap goodies. I am sitting here with said bagel next to me as I type, and there is nary a whiff of cinnamon nor a single raisin. VINDICATION!
  • Thom went to take a shower while River was eating breakfast. He watched daddy go then bounced in his chair and said, "Jump! Jump!" I was puzzled for a minute. Then I remembered we always say, "I'm gonna go jump in the shower."
  • For Christmas Thom got me a massage appointment for the first Saturday of each month this year. (Yes, I know how lucky I am to have him.) He spread them out over different spas to give me some variety of location, thinking if I found one I liked better than others, I could just reschedule the rest of the appointments there. After three sessions, I'm thinking I need to find a regular spa and a regular massage therapist. I just hate those initial uncomfortable moments getting to know each other. Basically, we're both thinking, "We just met, and one of us is going to be naked in a minute. But lets chat amicably like that's not weird." I need to find someone I'm used to being naked with so it's less weird. Right?
  • It's here!!! My new sewing machine, which promises to do embroidery, file my taxes, and make dinner every night (well, it should, for how much it cost) is pristine and just waiting for me to come work my magic. So I'm off!

As Casey said, hands off ladies! Thom is definitely the best. The gift was an act of self-preservation for him, though, as I go kind of crazy if I don't get a little time to myself each month.

I always wonder if the kids are imagining us actually jumping up and down in the shower...

Keely said...

Yes, a regular massage therapist makes it less weird. Until she friends you on Facebook and knows most of your life story, then it's just MORE weird.

I am so jealous! I want a sewing machine that embroiders (and files taxes and makes dinner!) Srsly, congratulations! :)

I love your son's name (my daughter's name is Winter.)

You Suck at Craigslist said...

I don't think reading through You Suck at Craigslist is useless. Then again, I write the site, so maybe I'm biased. ;)

I'm glad you enjoyed it!
