It’s time to get random again boys and girls with Keely at The Un Mom, the Un-est mom I know! Now where did I leave that fugly button this time??
Ah there it is so here you go:
So, spiders. Do you have freaky gigantor spiders? I do. Be sure to come back tomorrow and read all about it.
Since it’s too gosh dang hot to go outside (today – the weather said “feels like 100 degrees” – sticky) in the two weeks we’ve been living here we are stuck watching tv or rather movies. I think I have The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe memorized (though it’s an awesome flick).
I gained and lost a follower today. But they were different people. Don’t you wish you could get a “this person has defected” email so you could know who it was and shake them down for the reason? I always think, well crap, my post must have really sucked today!
I have a fireplace here (which I hate) and this big white space above it. Do you know how crazy it makes me that I can’t figure out what to do with that space? Candlesticks? Art? Russian Matryoshka Dolls?
You talkin’ to me?
Cycling Papa (aka Hubby) was so busy at work yesterday the most stressful thing he did was to try to figure out which car to buy. Honda Accord or Nissan Altima? Hmm, yeah.
When the sun goes down the noise from the bugs outside my bedroom window is amazing. It’s like a wild nature sound exhibit.
Last night I lit some candles in my bathroom around the tub. You know the behomoth, sunken double person tub that only my kids have actually used? Anyway I was in the mood to take a bubble bath (it’s a chic thing) but it was about midnight so I nixed that idea in favor of sitting on the edge of the tub in the glow of the candles eating ice cream. (Yes I not only ate ice cream at midnight but while sitting next to the bathtub.) It was only as I was blowing out the candles that I realized there was a bottle of biff cleaner with bleach in the back corner ledge. Fire+Andrea=The grateful feeling of knowing the house has a sprinkler system.
I love the area where we live but I don’t love the traffic. Our car insurance (for one car) is almost double here what it was when we lived in N. Maryland four years ago. There is that much traffic that the chance of an accident significantly impacts our rates. Geesh.
There are at least six houses on our street alone for sale (and seven if you count ours, even though our landlord does not have it currently for sale since we are renting it). Lot’s of houses, no buyers.
I feel like going visiting on Sundays though because they all have open houses and I could pop from one to the other and ‘check out the neighbors’. See what they have above their fireplaces…
All I have is house related random. And if it’s related is it really random?
There is good random I get to share, just a tidbit peek for now. I’m going to be writing a column for a motherhood ezine starting in January called Life in My Backyard. I’m thrilled to have been offered the opportunity. Stay tuned for more details as the launch is set for September and I’ll be having a party here.
That’s it. I haven’t got any more random. No funny pictures, crazy stories or anything else random worthy. You should go over to Keely’s and take a peek at the other random junkies and see what they have to say. Well, at least I hope Random Tuesday is still on since Keely’s been away on this mondo fabulous vacation. If not, well, feel free to be random in my comments then, I really don’t mind.
