Random Thoughts #44

  1. I want to know who pushed the fast forward button. Seriously, it was bad enough before Christmas when I had 27994 things to do to get ready for that, but now? I swear I blinked on January 2 and woke up and **hello!** now it's January 12th.
  2. We've had DVR for a couple of weeks now and still haven't used it. But I'm GONNA!
  3. I think the situation with Jay Leno's earlier show is so stupid. I thought he was retiring from the Tonight Show. Why is he still wanting a show at all? I don't get it. I like Conan. I didn't when he first got his show back all those years ago. (I'm old. Get off my lawn!)
  4. Could someone please kick me in the butt so I start exercising again? Thanks.
  5. D is talking a little more but still nowhere near the volume of words her siblings were speaking by this age. One thing I know, however, is that she is so smart. She knows exactly what we are saying. She follows directions. She points out things that are out of place. If I say it's time to go get M and K she gets her coat. To say she's physically active is an understatement. She climbs. Oh, how she climbs. She's almost learned to pedal her giraffe stationary bike already. She's constant motion but also observing everything. Soon she'll talk my ear off like her siblings did. She's just saving her words I guess.
  6. My cat continues to eliminate outside the litter box. I'm thinking it's time to lay aluminum foil everywhere except a path to her box. She's a stubborn cat so it's fitting she's mine. She used to poop on the floor in my bedroom when I was out too late at night after I graduated college. She's opinionated. She doesn't like disruption. I get that. But my husband is starting to really lack patience with her...any ideas?
  7. I joined a 365 photo group on Facebook and have enjoyed making sure I take photos every day. Not that I don't take enough photos, but I'm trying to not post every photo of my kids (although that is very hard for me) and it's sort of fun to try to think of other subject matter to post there.
  8. Speaking of Facebook, I've been amazed that some of the people I went to high school with seem so nice. I realize we're all older and hopefully evolved, but still. There are some people I haven't been able to bring myself to "friend" because I am still 16.
  9. Speaking of high school... I'm that girl in high school who was super, super skinny that you hated and wished she'd get really fat. **Wish GRANTED!**
  10. Hmmm. Still a bitchy old woman. No medications fixing that yet.
  11. I still love comments and friends and compliments. ** stop stop ! ** ** no really keep it coming **

6. problem cat - we went through that a few years ago. our vet suggested we contain our offending feline in the smallest room in our house (1/2 bath) with a littler box, food and water. with about 2 square feet of floor space, there wasn't room for her to go outside the litter box & still have a place to lay down.

we felt sorry for her after 3 days and let her out. she went right back to her bad habits. we tried again and stuck to the 7 days suggested by our vet. she got the message and we didn't have problems after that. good luck!

You are so brave to join the group for 365 ... I am going to just try and take photos everyday then maybe next year :)

lol on comments and compliments I am so the same way :P

I think it is way harder knowing what skinny was like. I miss it so much. I do feel amazing after getting some exercise though. I forgot how good it feels.

You are gonna LOVE DVR once you start using it! So handy.

I used to stare at Skinny Girl's arms and wish my arms were that thin. My legs too, except of course I didn't stare at her legs.

So impressed with your kiddo's pedaling! My preschooler just barely has started pedaling.

The fat chick now? Awesome. I have to say, seeing that makes my day too..hee hee! Loved the rest too!

Levi just barely slid into the normal range when it came to speech for a while there, and then all of a sudden the words just started spilling out in full sentences. Go figure. I think some of them just hold it in until they're good and ready.

And, the cat...I'd put it outdoors, but that's just me. I love, love, love animals, but I also love my sanity way more. And, I despise cleaning.

Madeline- My husband will LOVE your solution to the cat problem. Snow and below zero temps should take care of her right quick! ;)

I so get that Facebook thing! A couple weeks ago, a girl I graduated with sent me a friend request, and while I sat for a moment and stared at disbelief at the email, all I could think was how I thought (then) that she stole (ha!) my longtime best friend and transformed her into one of 'the popular ones' and also how we pretty much never once exchanged more than five words total in school.

I ended up accepting the request, but there's still a part of me that wonders if she thinks I'm somebody else and she friended me by accident!

Your post made me laugh! I feel the same way about the FB thing. I'm not as nice as you though, I usually ignore their requests!
