I can’t remember the last time things have been so hectic. Oh yeah, probably this time last year. Only this year seems to be exponentially worse – or it’s just that it seems that way. Check back next year and maybe I’ll have some mathematical equations figured out with a proper hypothesis. Yeah, like that’s going to happen.
Remember how I mentioned the hubby has a habit of buying stuff for himself after I’ve gotten a list of ideas from him, and he bought himself a GPS? Well, apparently I’ve returned the favor. I decided to go ahead and get the GPS I planned to get him and keep it for myself – you know, like a birthday present for myself, since my old one had outdated maps, and to update them I might as well buy a new one. So I did. (one with Lifetime Maps…sweet!)
When it arrived yesterday, I mentioned to the hubby that it was originally meant for him, but that he bought himself one. He laughingly told me that he had planned on stopping on his way to work (yesterday) to pick one up for me for my birthday this Thursday. Though I think he said that to make me feel better about his habit of coming up with good ideas then using them himself instead of letting me use those ideas, because he already has a pile’o’gifts sitting off to the side for my birthday. Which he told me to stay away from – so of course I’m tempted to investigate the packages and see if I can figure them out. I know, I’m eight.
I’m way behind getting my Christmas decorations up – I haven’t even started yet! Well, technically I have started, I spent several hours this weekend purging the living room of Princess Nagger’s random stuff and getting it ready to decorate. Now I just have to move my wine making mess out of the dining room to make room for the love seat since we’ll have to move that in there so there will be room in the living room for the tree. I know, too complicated to fathom. But it will get done. And now that I’ve procrastinated on at least getting the front porch decorated, I’ll have the challenge of doing that in very cold windy conditions. I’ll survive, and it’ll get done. I think I’ll recruit the hubby to help since I usually do that all by myself – might as well put him to work to create some magic!
The auto-correct on my phone caused me to send a funky tweet last week when I was at the Hyundai dealership service department in Maryland (where I have to return again tomorrow – because they were morons). When I tried to tweet that the dealership sucked pond water, the tweet went out as ‘sucks some water’. Only seeing the faux pas as I clicked ‘send’, I assumed that it changed ‘sucks’ to ‘some’, so I quickly sent another tweet that said ‘that should be sucks’. Who knew auto-correct wouldn’t try to change ‘sucks’ but did decide to change ‘pond’? I guess I better pay closer attention next time. And probably not tweet while walking. Walking and chewing gum, no problem. Walking and tweeting, problem.
So my birthday is on Thursday and Princess Nagger has decided what we’re going to do for my birthday, only we’ll be doing it on Friday since Thursday is a school night. She wants us to go see the new Chronicles of Narnia movie that happens to open on Friday. So that’s what we’ll be doing – and dinner out of course. Hopefully it won’t be a repeat of last year where I’ll have to channel my inner Chef Ramsey.
That’s about it for this week’s edition of Random Tuesday Thoughts – I’m still getting familiar with my new laptop and installing software so it’s been a time consuming effort – hence the no pictures for this week. Plus it’s so shiny and pretty and works so much faster than my old one – I keep getting distracted by it’s bells and whistles…wait, what does that button do…….
Enjoy your Tuesday!
