Random Thoughts Thursday

I've been stressing for the past two weeks that I insulted and/or offended people with my spelling & grammar comment.  I didn't mean to!  I'm just weird like that, but I don't sit around editing people's comments or blogs or anything.  Professional websites, on the other hand...

The cold that’s been moving through the family since the swine flu left us has finally made its way to me. Blech.

One day I will get a grasp on why the phrase, “Please clean up your toys” seems to hold no meaning for my children.

I need a good homemade Christmas ornament idea for this year. Good, cheap, and fun.

I did figure out, though, what the girls can give for Christmas to all their various teachers. It’s inexpensive, homemade, and pretty darn cool.

I really wish I could remember everything that’s happened in the last 11 Wheel of Time books. Book 12 would make so much more sense then.

Today’s motivation level: zero.

I’ve discovered that as much as I love being surprised, picking out my own Christmas present is sometimes the better way to go.

It would be nice if we had a month where there wasn’t at least four days off school. Hasn’t happened yet.

I am proud to say that I will be going to bed long before midnight tonight, unlike some other devotees of a film that shall remain unnamed. Yes, I will see it, but not until at least next week, possibly the week after. It’s how my friend Rachel and I tell ourselves we’re less crazed than everyone else.

Besides, I haven’t actually been able to stay awake past midnight in years. No point paying for a ticket and standing in line for seats for a movie I’d just sleep through.

I’m stressing about Christmas shopping. I have an awesome gift in mind for the girls, but I want to wait until Black Friday to see if I can get it for cheap. If I can’t, I have no idea what they’ll be getting. But I can’t really buy much for them until I get this sorted out. Stress!

For all my protest about Thanksgiving getting its fair due, I sure do have Christmas on the brain.

I just changed my Facebook home page language to pirate. It’s much more entertaining that way (thanks for the tip, Lori!)


  1. Allison,
    I should not go near Chris's blog when it is late and I am tired. Talk about incoherent ramblings. My husband is really into the Wheel of Time books. He keeps trying to get me to read them. Maybe I'll try one.

  2. I know my grammar is horrible, but I wasn't holding it against you - just being lazy with commenting on the blogs. I always edit things for spelling and just found an error on my nephew's wedding announcement - my lips are sealed!!!

    Are you really going to go out to the stores on Black Friday? I wasn't going to, but I think it might be fun to watch people go crazy for the sales!

  3. I love the pirate English! It's like a whole new facebook!! :) Danielle and I bailed on the New Moon trip too! I swear that our whole RS is going. It was the kind of peer pressure I haven't experienced since junior high.

  4. You are too funny, no offense taken here about the grammar comment. I just wish I was better at it. And no, I didn't see the non-mentioned movie at midnight either. Who wants to deal with all those teenagers? Not me!!

  5. I don't know when I'll see said movie...if I haven't seen it by the time you come out will you PUL-LEASE go with me? It means Russ is refusing to to take me.

    I understand the Black Friday cunnundrum. I love saving money, especially on Christmas gifts. The little gifts all depend on the cost of the big one. But getting up with crazed shoppers is not that much fun. Oh, the frustration.
    What are you hoping to get the girls by the way?
