Random Tuesday Thoughts : Excuse me, but where’s your decorator degree?

It’s Tuesday, it’s Tuesday!  That means that in S I X days The Chick goes to school again.  It also means it’s Random Tuesday Thoughts with Keely at the Un Mom.

Yesterday I promised the Chick she could wear underwear.  We even picked it out the night before and put it with her clothes and she was bursting with excitement.  Then I woke upa nd remembered the 500 things I had to do out of the house.  Which means it’s not an ideal day to have a fairly good potty trained child in underoo’s out of the house.  I’m pretty sure Target wouldn’t want the pee’d on cart back.

I’ve been getting the house together and the first thing I did to make it mine was yank down the scary curtains that the previous owners left.  {Okay they weren’t horrid just so not my taste.  I believe my words were “they’re prissy.”}  Now I had it all sorted out on the main floor (for the most part) until CP said the blue striped curatins would look better in our bedroom.  He said this as I was on a stool yanking down the tacky green curtains that were in the bedroom.  The problem is the blue stripe curtains are already committed to the family room.

So of course I’m looking at the four windows in the bedroom going Dang It.  I have exactly four blue stripe panels which means two are going to waste doing nothing.  I asked CP where exactly did he get his decorator diploma…grumble, grumble.  (For the record he was’t right, I just don’t like wasting stuff.)

I got Milked!

Sugar Milk’d that is.  I can’t wait to read this awesome book by the author of Clark Kent’s Lunchbox.

We are hosting a bbq for CP’s team from work in April.  I’m half scared (because these are his employees) and half excited (look! other adults!!).  I’m still obsessing over getting the wood floor de-greasified {totally a word}.  And now I have to add finding curtains into the mix.

Speaking of floors, does anyone have tips for de-greasifying prefinished hardwood floors that were washed with orange oil?  I’ve tried Bruce hardwood floor cleaning and Zep hardwood cleaner.  And I’ve had zero luck.

I swear this isn’t a home decorating blog.  So all the companies that keep telling me my blog is mentioned at their XYZ Home Tips site can stop now.  I’m not giving you a link in return and feel free to remove mine that I didn’t ask you for in the first place (if it really exists).

9 years ago tomorrow, on St. Patrick’s Day, I married the Irish CP.  I never know if I’m supposed to say “That seems like such a long time ago!” or “That seems like it was only yesterday!”  Which is appropriate??

For our anniversary we are going out to dinner.  With our kids.  Which means do you want IHOP or Mickey D’s sweetheart?

Have you noticed blogger is still without a spell check?  Hello, you’re Google.  Surely you can add one stinking button.

My Blackberry is doing the dance of death again.  It’s turned itself off twice now for no reason.  I don’t think it likes living in Kentucky.  CP says only one year and four months and I can get an iPhone.  What he really means is HE can buy ME an iPhone and then steal it from me.

He’s just annoyed iPhone isn’t an option and work forces him to get the Blackberry instead.

Next week (provided it’s above 50 degrees and not raining) – Me + Running = Keeping HASAY happy.  I’ve been absent far too long HASAY but I’m coming back, I promise.

That’s way more than enough Random for a Random Tuesday so head over to Keely’s and see who has far better Random ideas than moi.

  1. Cannot speak for it's accuracy myself, but this article (specifically comment 111 – the top comment) says “Goof Off 2” (not “Goof Off”) is water based and will remove the oil residue. Apparently it's available at Home Depot.And every time you whine about Blogger's spell check, I'm going to remind you that both Firefox and Chrome have spell check out of the box, in every text field (even blog comments, for example).

  2. I can't wait to see pictures of your new house! ;)I'm clicking over and getting a copy of CK's book when I'm done here – looks like a fun read! :)Happy Anniversary a day early! How fun you married an Irishman on St. Patrick's Day! :)I'm still debating on which SmartPhone to get – because I'm still determined to get one. I might be moving Blackberry further down the list… 😉

  3. I wouldn't go without diapers either unless I was 99% sure we wouldn't have any mishaps. And public restrooms are gross.We had to get rid of a car once due to a pee soaking. I was never able to get the smell out. EVER. I drove it for about a month after that, and every time I got in after work it smelled like there was a hobo living in the back seat. Baked pee. Ack.Happy RTT.

  4. “I got milked!” I'm going to have to put that on T-shirts! Best line ever. (and thank you for getting the book – hope it's worth the hype).An Irishman on St. Patty's Day? Did you pop open a Guinness instead of champagne? Happy Anniversary. oh, I'll put to work a little of my homebuilding/customer care experience. It depends on the composite and type of wood used when it comes to cleaning products, but Dawn diluted in water and then applied using a damp cloth should do the trick. The key is it has to be damp, then you can wipe it down with a thin coat of Liquid Gold (that part's optional though). Thanks again for mentioning the book. Means a lot.

  9. So are you starting to feel settled in your new home?And happy almost-anniversary. I think it's appropriate to say either… when you get flowers you say “it seems like only yesterday!” When you are arguing over curtains, you say “if feels like such a long time ago.” See, equal opportunity!

  10. Sara – You have no idea. I'm preparing to call in a 'favor' because I found the most awesome material to make curtains with (white with a black design). Does he like it? Noooo! He says it's 'floral'. To which I say WTH? It's modern/contemporary. Sigh…

  13. Happy anniversary again, hope you have fun at your kid full dinner.We're in that stage with G too, not wanting to take him out of the house with underwear on but not wanting to make him wear a diaper either. We settle for short trips then home to pee.
