Random Ramblings

Thanks Amy over at Bitchin' Wives Club for hosting Random Tuesday Thoughts this week.
  • First off, my facebook account has been disabled for reasons unknown and they don't even have the decency to respond to my very polite email asking, "Why, why?"

  • How am I going to keep in touch with my babysitters and check up on all my nieces and nephews to see how out of control their partying and how atrocious their spelling has gotten?

  • What am I supposed to do with all the time that watching the Olympics took up? Can't we have a post-Olympic weaning period, maybe cutting down on coverage by say, from 24 hours a day to 20 then 18 and so on ... over the course of another 17 days. Now I have no excuse for not cleaning the house or making the kids do their homework or sitting in the ski lodge on snowy days.

  • My Other Half is home after almost three weeks of being away at trade shows. It's back to real meals with vegetables and nothing out of a box. Not to mention the fact that I might have to get back into the habit of showering a little more regularly ... and making the bed ... and dressing in something other than sweat pants.

  • Please, can someone explain to me why all the TV shows that I started watching in the fall and liked then went on hiatus after only about six episodes and now apparently they are all at risk of being cancelled? Well, duh. You have to have a show actually on the the air for people to watch and for advertisers to place their commercials, even in this digitally virtual cyber-like world.

  • I am in my third winter of not having a bath tub deep enough to cover both my knees and boobs (and not because they are so big, unfortunately) at the same time and I think I might have to take matters into my own hands and rip out the disgusting fiberglass built-in unit in our bathroom and replace it with one of those gorgeous freestanding soaker tubs.

  • Finalement, I wish I knew why William Shatner was unable to remember the name of his (and my) alma mater during his monologue at the Closing Ceremonies. It's McGill University not University of McGill. They named the Student Union after him for god's sake! And for all you south of the border, the blow-up beavers and flying moose were not the best part of the show, despite what Redneck Mommy said.


  1. So funny! That blow-up beaver! I can't speak for Redneck Mommy, but isn't there a chance that she was being just a bit sarcastic?

    Good luck with all that Olympic withdrawal. I didn't watch any of it. None. Not that I'm not patriotic or don't care about things... no, that's exactly it: I guess I just didn't care enough. Had my hands full with weird life stuff going on. And I just have to complain here for a second that Life couldn't have done a better job with scheduling stupid stuff to happen. Just sayin'.

    Hope you enjoy your time with hubby. =)

  2. I've been out of the loop for awhile - did not even know Keeley was taking off this week.

    When yo find out why they disabled your FB, let us know. What with all the teens do on FB, seems baffling.

  3. Go for the bathtub. Go for the bathtub immediately.

  4. That blow up beaver was a little frightening, no doubt!! I loved the "Made in Canada" stamp on their tails...classic!!

  5. I want a bathtub, too! We (stupidly) bought a house without a tub. Ack!

    The book of face is often confusing.

  6. Redneck Mommy being sarcastic? Never.

    I have been r/ejected by the book of face and I didn't even get too do something really offensive. What happened to my right to a trial by a jury of my peers?

  7. Facebook disables accounts? Well that just sucks to know.

    And showering is overrated, at least that's what I tell myself when I hit day 3 because hubby works 12-14 hour days and it's 1 AM by the time he gets home and the baby was being uncooperative while the other 3 were fighting and ....
    I probably shouldn't post a whole blog post in your comments. ROFL

    Swinging by from SITS!

  8. What!? Why would someone take you off facebook! That's such a shame because its one of our modes of communication! Hope you get it back soon, I even searched your name and nothing came up :(

  9. Okay, I know I’m showing my age here but I just don’t get TV show scheduling these days. Didn’t shows used to start in September and run right through ‘til March or April? And then re-runs in the summer? I miss the logic of that process.
    And, yeah, I miss the Olympics, too.

  10. My nephew wants to go to McGill! Good luck with getting back into a regular routine. ;)
