Some random thoughts for you....

I'm feeling very random today so here we go...

1) I'm completely convinced that Facebook's whole recent update is merely a way for them to make each and every one of us feel unimportant, even though they claim it's their way of helping us stay up to date on our friends' busy lives.

You see, now that there's a little feeder on the side of my FB page which shows every single one of my friends' comments and likes on other people's pages, I can see when friends of mine are getting together, having a great time and creating little inside jokes....without me.

So yeah, thanks Facebook...it wasn't as if I was already insecure as it was.

2)  We're going on Week 4 of the Kitchen Remodel From Hell.   Yes, I said Week 4.

I watch all those DIY and HGTV shows, like Renovation Realities, etc.  How come their makeovers are always done in 30 minutes...and mine takes FOUR freakin' weeks??

On a positive note, both Tim and I only got electrocuted one time each so we have that going for us.  We each still have 10 fingers and 10 toes...in tact.  And neither of us has asked for a divorce...yet.

Don't ever accuse me of being a "glass is half empty" kind of person.

3)  I'm taking my sister to a day spa this morning for a massage as a belated birthday present.  Should it be concerning to me that I took the time to shave my legs and find a nice pair of underwear to wear for a total stranger who will be spending approximately 60 minutes with me and who I'll probably never ever see again?

Not really, you say.

Well, now...how about when I tell you that my usual warning to Tim when he asks for some action is "Uh, if you don't mind that I haven't shaved my legs in a couple days and that I really don't want to take ALL my clothes off, sure...we can go for it".

4)   What is so difficult about giving another driver a courtesy wave when they let you go in front of them?  Even my KIDS know that's so not cool, as evidenced by the following "observation":

Cole:  Hey, you just let that person go in front of you and she didn't give you a thank-you wave!  That's SO rude.  But maybe her arm's broken so she can't wave.  But if her arm was broken then she wouldn't be able to drive.  So I guess she's just rude.  I feel bad for her kids.

Me:  Why do you feel bad for her kids?

Cole:  Because they're going to inherit her rudeness.  Rude mom equals rude kids.  It's a fact of life, Mommy.

Me:  Where do you get this stuff from?

Cole:  From my brain.  It's called an "observation".

Me:  You scare me sometimes.

Cole:  And it's not even Halloween yet.

I love Roseanne Barr too. My younger son, now 35, and I watched her together so many times. I liked her before she was famous...and your post is a fun one. Relate to most all of it. Straight out of everyday real life.

Once again, your kids crack me up! And I agree, a thank you wave is a courtesy which should not be omitted.

Natalie said...

Ha ha I hate when people don't give you a thank you wave...drives me bonkers. Looks like you are teaching the kids the correct way to drive :) And I hate the new FB...they always keep messing with it. Annoying I say.

wonderchris said...

Love the random thoughts.

Cole you are so right on...and your mom is hilarious which equals hilarious children...evidence you.

Tarah said...

Bwhaha - I agree with Cole. RUDE. I wave anytime I get over in case I missed the fact that the person slowed down to let me in. I may look crazy but at least I'm not rude! :)

Rhiannon said...

love cole hes super awsome!
i hear ya... i shave only if I HAVE to... action or not, he has to deal with it! LOL

Amber said...

An excellent observation indeed, haha

I hate FB to begin with, mostly because it always tries to think for me and now it's doing it even worse. I will most likely quit FB. There I said it, I WILL QUIT.

4 weeks...better than 4 months, right???

Tamika said...

Love it all... True real life all around...

Nezzy said...

Ohhhh, I want to hug that brilliant little Cole. Quite the observant one he is!

Heehehehe, I'm rollin' her girl. You crack me up! :o)

God bless and you and the fam have a fantastic fall weekend sweetie1!!!

Heather said...

#1 made me laugh out loud! You completely take the boredom out of my workday ;)

Samantha said...

I hate those people who don't give a courtesy wave. Makes me want to run into them with my car.

The Jammie Girl said...

Usually I want to be Bella, but today I want to be Cole. What a cool kid!

Teri said...

Everyone is saying Google + is the way to go.....Your kids are awesome!

bluecottonmemory said...

Facebook does not get the courtesy wave from me - and, no, my arm isn't broken!

However, I always give the courtesy wave in line - if you don't do it, we just assume your northern and don't know any better! LOL

Hope your kitchen gets to the dream part soon - and hope the spa was worth shaving your legs! LOL

I love kid conversations!Even when they're not mine?)

Jenny said...

LOL about Cole and his "observations".

I would have done the same thing, by getting ready for a massage! LOL!

Candace Castor said...

Your kids crack me up!

When I moved to Japan I never received the "courtesy wave" ticked me off a bit... but then I noticed their flashers would blink a few times so I figured their cars were possessed... haha turns out that is the Japanese way of saying thank you! They don't wave since it can be missed or thought to be flipping someone off! It only took me almost 2 years to figure that out!!

Jenn said...

Ugh, four weeks... which is exactly why we haven't tackled it in our house yet! :) Love your kids...

"Cottage By The Sea" said...

No it is not odd that you shaved your legs or wore nice underwear for your massage. I have been known to murmur, "I Love You" to my masseuse. There is NOTHING like a great massage!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

Oh, how I love you and your kids!

Nobodys Nothings said...

good luck with the kitchen remodel. we're stuck in a halfway point between projects ourself, so i understand the frustration involved in that completely!

and...

your kids are awesome. :)

Marcia (123 blog) said...

I had to go into FB to see what you meant - I don't mind too much because I don't look too much at what others are doing :)

LOVE Cole's conversation with you - he is smart to figure out the niceties of life so young

Shelly - Tropical Mum said...

Cole is hilarious! "From my brain. It's called an "observation"."

I'm laughing out loud and my kids in the other room think I'm bonkers.

Singedwingangel said...

Cole is very wise for his young age. You are much braver then I for I would not even attempt a kitchen remodel or any remodel beyond rarranging furnitue.

Mercy D'souza said...

Haha. Cole is a smart one. Maybe one day you can write a book of all the things your kids say. It would be great for laughs and memories.

KSK said...

I love your conversation! :) Too cute!
And I'm glad you're teaching your kids "the unsaid rules of the road" :)

Charlene said...

Glad you and Tim are alive to tell the tale...and just think since you were both electrocuted, it could add some real spark when you have sex and then you wouldn't have to worry about hairy legs. hahah (so says she, who hasn't shaved her legs in a month).

Love the convo with Cole too - funny!!

myinnerchick.com said...

---Superb Randomness.
"IT's called observation." Classic.

Missy said...

This is one of the best kid conversations EVER! You have great kids.

Lisa said...

OMG, that is the best conversation ever. and I love that he has manners. :)

Kimberly said...

Don't feel bad, I prep and shave when i get MRI's. Speaking of which, I have a bone scan on Thursday...looks like it'll be the 3rd shave of the month. I'm on a roll.

Holly said...

Heh! Cole is awesome.

I have the same insecure/paranoid thoughts from Facebook. Ugh....

Have to say, even though the remodel is taking longer than you thought, I'm jealous. I'd love to ditch this dated kitchen!

Twins Squared said...

1. I hate the new FB changes. They are their worst changes yet.
2. Remodels seem to always take a million years. The little details take FOREVER!
3. I never think to shave before a massage and then I'm embarrassed. And I'm always trying to keep some of my clothes on too! Unrelated topics I know. At least when I address them this way.
4. Kids are funny. they just get funnier. My little girls call other drivers stupid now. I guess that's because there's a lot of other rude and stupid drivers out there!

Working Mommy said...

when you're done with the kitchen remodel...can you do ours too?!

wm

Karen Peterson said...

Haha! That Cole is a funny one!

Sorry about the remodel! That doesn't sound like fun at all!

Thistle Cove Farm said...

Give Cole a high five for me; he's smarter than most adults.

I figure that if the children are alive when my husband gets home at the end of the day, I've done my job.
