Random Wednesday Thoughts

It's a beautiful Wednesday afternoon...the sun is as bright as can be, the snow is stunningly white (and melting), and I am cozy in my yoga pants. I have so many thoughts running around in my brain right now...and they are very random. Instead of driving mySELF crazy, I thought I'd take you all along for a ride so you can see what's going on inside my head. Might be fun...or might not!

Where is my freakin' lens cap? I have a bad habit of taking it off to shoot a few pictures and then forgetting to put it back on. I almost always sit it in the same place, but clearly this was not the case last time. It's like it just turned to dust! And yes, this is a distinct possibility, given the level of dust in my house right now...

I'm sending off a little care package to a friend who needs some cheering up right now, and am wanting to make sure I send a good balance of stuff. I've got two non-perishable microwavable meals (both Italian), two boxes of mac and cheese (because who doesn't like mac-n-cheese?), a pound of dry spaghetti, a can of chunky marinara for the spaghetti, a microwavable bowl of udon noodles, a bag of trail mix, and a little bit of chocolate. Sound good? I'm really hoping he enjoys the yumminess!

Why does no one tell me when we are out of chicken feed? Why do I have to find out all by myself when I randomly go out to take scraps to the chickens? HELLLLLOOOOO?!?! This in info I need, since I am the one who buys the feed! Note to self: Discuss with Ms. Kendall when she gets home from school.

I have to plan the goodies for my upcoming Pampered Chef party. I'm thinking Loaded Baked Potato Chowder, Bread Bowl Artichoke Dip, maybe a salad of some sort, and a Warm Brownie Sundae Bar...make your own!! I'm sure I'll come up with something else between now and then too...but wow, I sure hope I have a good turnout! It would be a darn shame if I had to eat all the leftovers, wouldn't it?

Two laptops are really not enough computers for a household of 5 people. I don't like to share.

I'm going away Saturday morning for a girls weekend with two good friends. We will be visiting my old stomping grounds in Toledo...I haven't been there in over 10 years! I'm sure it will be weird and the town hasn't been the same since I left...LOL!! But seriously, I'm starting to wish I had enough time while there to visit some old friends. Guess I'll have to save that for another trip!!

I'm loving my new daily "The Office" desk calendar. The quotes crack me up!! For instance this little nugget for today: "Okay, Dwight, let me explain something to you. I set the rules and you follow them blindly, ok? And if you have a problem with that, then you can talk to our complaint department. It's a trashcan." I have an unnatural obsession with this show. I have all 5 seasons on DVD and watch at least an episode a day. Yes, I have issues...but so does everyone else, and besides, mine are pretty harmless. :)

I hate to admit it, but I'm kind of enjoying going to the gym. But don't ask me to run with you. EVER. I'm not interested.

I'm going to NYC this summer/fall with my two best friends. This will be the first time for all of us...and we're VERY excited. Should I keep this sassy little short cut, or let my hair grow out again and let the natural wave flow? Decisions, decisions, decisions....

I love lasagna. Enough said.

I cannot tolerate one more person complaining about the weather. It is what it is. We live in Ohio, and it snows in the winter. Deal with it or move. Quit wasting all of your energy complaining about things you have no control over.

I'm consumed with sadness over the tragedy in Haiti. I cannot even imagine. Oh, and Pat Robertson should really keep his small-minded ideas to himself. What a numbskull. And he calls himself a Christian? Really?!?!

My dog is the best dog in the world. Really!

I'm hungry. I want some chocolate chip cookie dough. But I probably won't make any...that would make last night's torture session at the gym pointless.

Since when are there 5 people in your household? Are you counting the dog? Because I'm pretty sure he can't manage a laptop. :-)
