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.
