Thought Fragments

how can i possibly not have scissors? I scrapbook, for pete’s sake.

how do i get a discount code for dillards for a soo cute, but overpriced dress?

how do you get a baby to stop doing his Happy Dance in the bathtub? it’s darling, but just not safe.

did i really tell you that i like to smell myself sweat? when did i become that person?

ew.

if cesar millan can put a dog on a treadmill, i can too, right? 

love, respect, keeping peace and still having an opinion that can somehow be shared

fairy dust in my carpet from the latest craft-y project

a white hanger on a bedroom door

glue peeling off my fingertips

pseudonyms and namesakes and house pins and geography and little boys who will just not stay in bed no matter what

dead ram heads and old apartment complexes in other towns and investments and stuff that bores me

stuff i don’t understand

if it looks and smells like a huge debt, why is it really an asset? my brain just doesn’t get that. why sign up for that?

and why on earth are there 3 pairs of nail clippers in my purse and none in the bathroom?

THAT i really do not understand

there are onions molding in my fridge and diapers stinking up the garage

there’s also a hairball in the garage and i hesitate to remove it because the kids leap over it enthusiastically every morning and yell, "Jump over the Myow Myow Poop!"

And that’s cute because – as my uncle says – isn’t it easier to just say cat?

the hairball is ecru. in case you were wondering.

i bet you weren’t.

how can people talk on cell phones in public restrooms?

more importantly, how can you possibly twinkle when it’s going to be transmitted somewhere else via cell phone?

so not worth a penny, huh?

that’s ok. these thoughts were free.

It’s all that exercise and sweating! Your brain is getting too much oxygen and blood circulation…..and it is obviously in need of answers! =)

But if you twinkle in a public restroom and there’s no one there to hear it via cell phone, did it really make a sound?

“how do you get a baby to stop doing his Happy Dance in the bathtub? it’s darling, but just not safe.”
The only answer I can think of is “straight jacket” and that’s just counterproductive in so many ways.

“did i really tell you that i like to smell myself sweat? when did i become that person?”
You did, but it’s okay. We still love you anyway.

“if cesar millan can put a dog on a treadmill, i can too, right?”
Sounds like a great way to get a spazzy puppy to work off some excess energy. Hmmmmmm….

“love, respect, keeping peace and still having an opinion that can somehow be shared”
That is a tricky balance.

“glue peeling off my fingertips”
I used to make glue fingerprints in school when I got bored. Then I advanced to glue handprints. I never ate glue though. I was never that bored.

“pseudonyms and namesakes and house pins and geography and little boys who will just not stay in bed no matter what”
Um, what are house pins?

“dead ram heads and old apartment complexes in other towns and investments and stuff that bores me”
Eeewww.

“and why on earth are there 3 pairs of nail clippers in my purse and none in the bathroom?”
I was just wondering the opposite yesterday. I have 3 in my bathroom and none in my purse.

“there are onions molding in my fridge and diapers stinking up the garage”
I’m just glad to hear it’s not the other way around!!!

“there’s also a hairball in the garage and i hesitate to remove it because the kids leap over it enthusiastically every morning and yell, “Jump over the Myow Myow Poop!”"
I’m going to start saying that to my husband when we find cat gack on the living room floor.

“the hairball is ecru. in case you were wondering.”
Around here, we determine which cat is gacking by the color of the hairballs. I know you really wanted to know that.

“how can people talk on cell phones in public restrooms?”
I have NO idea!

“more importantly, how can you possibly twinkle when it’s going to be transmitted somewhere else via cell phone?”
If I were ever to hear a “twinkle” (I love you southern ladies’genteel words) on the other end of a cell phone call? I would hang up. Rude? Maybe. But not so rude as making me listen to THAT.

“that’s ok. these thoughts were free.”
Why, thank you!

They don’t if I’m in there. I’ve been known a time or two hundred to tell those mostly young and untrained girls (yet occasional older and they really should know better women) to put that DAMN PHONE AWAY NOW OR I WILL FLUSH IT! Yeah, in those words and that tone of voice and with a glare of all glares. And if they refuse to submit to this courteous course of action, I proceed to flush, flush, flush until they cannot hear the person on the other line. (The flushing of the cell phone was just an idle threat after all.)

That was cool reading your random thoughts. and I don’t know. Glue dried on fingertips and peeling off is an interesting thing…

Wow, I think Shalee has some pinned up anger about bathroom/cell phone manners! We should have her talk with someone : )

I loved reading your crazy thoughts… you’ve got lots going on in that head of yours right now!

I used go to the gym. I still belong to two, but who has the time with homeschooling. So for Christmas my darling hubby bought me an elliptical. I’ve been consistent on the thing 5 days a week from 20-40 minutes. It’s not the same thing as going to the gym, but at least I’m sweating, and loving it!

Wow – sounds like my head

Happy Dance in bathtub really stuck with me for some reason. Might have to do with the wet carpet outside the bathroom currently…

I’m usually a lurker vs. a commenter — but wanted to pass on two things:

1. I agree about Cesar Millan!
2. Thanks for the reminders (club 17) to check the girls. Sharing your story recently helped. Thanks for the needed nudge in the right direction.
