Sunday Randomness

1.  We are trying to get organized a little around here.  Bill is busy hanging shelving in my laundry room so I can organize all the crap you saw in the photo in a previous blog entry.  Once the little project is done, I will start figuring out how to best group this stuff and get it up off my floor where it has lived for 8 years, yeah, I am a slob by nature.

20100921_222519_4808 Before…Waiting for the after, I need a bunch more money for Rubbermaid’s – thinking of selling some scrapbooking supplies, oh but then I wont need as many Rubbermaid’s – win win – It’s like a chicken and egg thing – which came first the crap or the shelves to hold the crap?

Getting organized for winter? (or for any reason) Check out   If you read that too fast like I do, it looks like  That is why I like it so much.  It has organization tips, recipes (not all of them being too healthy but DELISH!!) and so much more.

2.  Peeling eggs – it is so fun when the shell just slides right off, but then when they WONT peel, it is one of the more frustrating things in the world.  I know all about older eggs being easier to peel, but the 16 I did today all came from the same carton.  Stupid egg shells.  A tip on suggests adding salt to the water – I will try that next time.

3.  Today at church, an adult male friend of ours  (don’t want to name names here but his name  rhymes with cryin’ and his wife is expecting a baby girl) accidentally popped Princess in the nose causing a minor bloody nose.  He still denies it.  While discussing it on the way home, Curly piped in with a “I burped in his face.” 

“Well, Curly, that is not ok.  That is something you can be punished for.” 

“It was his punishment.”

I do love this girl.

4.  I am spending a lot of time these days helping my little sis drum up all kinds of wedding ideas – you know, general wedding theme, colors, looks, that sort of thing.  You will start to see a lot of wedding things posted here and there.  Some of my favorite sites to look at are Elizabeth Anne Design and Style me Pretty  (thanks, Anne!)   I actually enjoy all things wedding even when not helping with any specific wedding…I would love to be a wedding coordinator if I didn’t have to work weekends.  I think I will go into business with my sister-in-law Shannah, one of the best floral designers I know.  My other dream job would be photographer but ya know, that involves weekends too and I want to wakeboard in September and camp in June.

5.  Chi straighteners – if I paid $100 for a hair appliance, why didn’t it come with an automatic off option?  Good news learned the hard way is that when I leave it on all day, it doesn’t burn down the house nor does it melt my bathroom counter top.

6.  I forgot an important part of the wakeboarding trip.  After Bill got out of the water the second time, he was speaking strange.  Like real English sentences with a subject and predicate but no words that made sense when put together.  He also joined in when Princess danced to a favorite song blasting on the radio.  I have video of this, because somehow he didn’t know I was videoing him even though I told him I was, but I cant post it or else I would feel the wrath of one VERY ANGRY husband.  It had to be hypothermia. Needless to say, as soon as the sentences made sense, he asked me to quick run ahead to the van and crank the heat so it was warmed up when he got in.  I drove home – afterall, we didn’t want Bill to get a ticket for DWFYNO.

7.  Bridezillas – holy crap.  Why would anyone marry a girl who tells her mom that she is going to stick her eyes with her earring backs and she would have to be at the wedding wearing a pirate patch.  YIKES – that will last as long as…well…everyone knows those people.   Yet, I cant stop watching.  It is kinda like Secret Life of an American Teenager.  Train wreck you just cant turn off.

8.  Bill taught Curly how to use our scanner, so if you get something not worth getting, I am sorry in advance – sometimes, she doesn’t make the greatest decisions.  I have been the recipient of some of her e-mails.  YIKES.  If you don’t send this onto 7 people in 5 minutes, you will have bad luck for the rest of your life.  How stupid do I look?  Don’t answer that.

9.  This one goes out to a special someone.  Why do vitamins turn your pee such wonderful colors?  Green?  BRIGHT yellow?  What is in them? Check this site out for a wonderful description of pee colors.  I learned from this site that 45% of people admit to peeing in the shower and 45% of people also admit to peeing in the ocean  (I am an Ocean pee-er myself.)  Cat pee glows under black light.  Cow pee is going on sale as a beverage in India…I will tell Bill not to drink anything called Gua Jal.   Only about 40% of people have the genes to smell the odor of asparagus pee!

10.  Halloween month starts this week…I hate Halloween.  Sorry to all you costumed trick-or-treating celebrators out there.  I hate witches, ghosts, and all that kind of crap shoved down my throat.  I like things not from the dark side like puppies and kitties.  Actually, I don’t like cats at all either.  We will not be home on Halloween.  Sunday night, we just may be at the dentist or something.  Can you tell I have been watching Bridezillas all afternoon?

Boo Humbug Tshirts for Anti-Halloweeners

11.  The girls and I went to Ramona and Beezus yesterday…GREAT movie.  We saw it at the cheap theater – $2 per person, beat that.  That is about the only thing good about the cheap theater.  I can just feel the germs, lice, and cooties in there…yes, I can be a germaphobe.  If you have little girls, you must see this movie.

    The fact that there is an internet site devoted to urine colors is scary. Just downright scary. That’s all I’m sayin’…
