Misc. ramblings....


I have a few posts in mind but really, what are they without pictures? So for those you'll have to wait, I'll have pics of the HUGE gap in my daughter's lack of front teeth soon (yeah, she lost another and can't eat worth a damn). Today you get my random musings, observations of nothing. Kind of like a Seinfeld episode (who the hell wasted their time watching those stupid shows?). First off, I got the kid to school on time. A first for this week, she was late yesterday. This is the norm when I take her to school, I'm a bad mom. I've been driving the Jeep with the top off because it's the only way I get any pleasure out of driving the pain in the ass. The hubby loves it, me not so much. I had him put the top up last night (because I'm short and it's a bitch to do when you're short) since they were calling for rain today. Mind you, it was 85 degrees and stupid bright and sunny yesterday. Freakin Texas weather. I guess I shouldn't complain though, others up in the Dakotas and whatnot are getting inches of snow. Screw that yo, I stick to the skitzoid sunbelt thanks. So I get the kid ready for school. She is putting on her shoes and I am looking outside. It's damn windy and kinda cloudy so I know weather is coming but that's why I had the hubby put the top back on the Jeep right?

By the time the kid finally gets her shoes on, yeah it takes awhile, it's raining. I let her go like 6 months with slip on tennis shoes and apparently tying ones shoe laces is not like riding a bike. You can forget.... Anyway it's raining pretty damn hard all at once. OK, it's Texas, we're used to this. We get in the Jeep, pull out of the garage (oh yeah, we use our garage for our cars, novel huh?) and get the kid the 1/8th mile to school, the rain is making odd sounds on the car. No really! I've never actually driven in hail before and certainly not in a soft top. The kid is squealing like she's being beaten in the back seat. Not sure why so I had to tell her to shut it. Annoying when you're in line behind 1000 soccer moms trying to drop off their children in the rain and hail. Because, as we all know, rain makes it so people, straight up, can't function. Morons. Soccer moms are bad enough drivers normally, no water needed. It was chaos. Good thing I was there early huh? I then go back home, put Jeep back in the garage but of course the hail is over. I get ready for work, leave and it's barely drizzling. I guess the parents were being entertained by mother nature only while dropping off kids and that was to be the end. I know this because I have been outside for lunch and you know what? It's beautiful out. 71 and sunny, should be 80 by 4pm. Hello, this isn't the Dakotas that's for sure. It'll be in the mid 80's until Saturday when it'll be 90. YEGAK. Ah Texas...

Moving on, I won one of those blog giveaway thingies. First time ever! It was through Primp and Tell. OK ya'll know I don't actually put time into how I look when leaving the house right? My hair goes into a pony tail (so I don't have to blow dry) and I wear scrubs every day of the week. Recently I have been considering wearing make up. Get out. No I'm serious. And we'll see just how serious if/when? I actually do it. Mid thirties and just starting to consider being girlie, what has the world come to? I do own everything I need btw, I just find my morning sleep to be precious and already get to work an hour later than most. Adding stuff to the morning routine will only happen if I don't have to lose sleep for it. Yeah, we'll see how that works out right? The thingy I won was a plumping lipcolor. Do ya'll know how big my lips are already? I may end up looking botoxed but I am still game for the adventure right? Plus these gals gave it to me for free so I have to give a shout out to them. I've read some of their back pages and I am going to try a few things out too. This eyeliner (I already bought it even, it sits there waiting for me to make the effort...) and I want to try this scrub too, mainly because the packaging is adorable. And last but not least this foundation, but I have a foundation love so it's going to have to be awesome. I went and got the magazine for this mascara deal but they didn't have the mascara. I'll have to go to some other stores it seems...

All right was that random enough for ya'll? Yeah once my brain gets more organized I will post about my busy ass weekend I had last weekend. Really it's Tuesday and I already feel like it's Thursday, that's how busy it was. And can I just say? I think this is going to be a loooong week.

My heart is breaking. Did you just call Seinfeld "stupid?" (Sob.) I still watch reruns when I get into bed each night. Well, lately I've ignored it for The Books, but that's my normal routine.

Good luck on the make-up thing. I don't wear any myself. Any time I've tried, I end up looking like a cheap hooker. Maybe someday I'll try again.

Ah my dear, to each her own I suppose. I actually prefer my sitcoms to be more violent than funny. Odd taste, I know.

I am due to get some of The Books in myself. Still waiting for my friend Brenda to send them. I think I may end up having to buy them at this rate...
