Unplanned, purposeless thoughts aka random Tuesday


Honestly, I could write a random thoughts post for every day of the week because my mind is full of them.
Unplanned, purposeless thoughts roaming through my Mommy-mush brain.
I am full of them.

*Like just the other day while I was jogging down our dead-end country road. I was paying close attention to the forest beside me looking for a coyote peering out from amongst the trees. And I had it all planned out how I was going to take the bugger down and be some sort of hero if he came near me. Really.

Then I was trying to figure out what I would do if I saw a bear.

I didn't come up with anything except scream, run, cry and poop my pants.

*I asked my boys why they are so fascinated with their private parts. Their answer was "I don't know" as they flashed me. I have learned that being a female, I will never....ever understand the male gender. Ever.

*I have lost 8 pounds. And I am constipated. So I have probably lost 12 pounds but am so bunged up that I am keeping the weight on. It makes me want to eat a Big Mac, large Coke and a Kit Kat. Firstly, because they taste good. Secondly, because I am depressed. And thirdly, because I will probably poop after eating them!

*I still think the Bachelor is a dork

*I am still wondering how Tiger Woods is doing. Geesh, he must be so embarrassed

*My children have a laundry basket in their room. It is not a decoration or a door stopper. It is there for them to put their dirty clothes in. They haven't caught on after 6 and 8 years. See?

*We have three {live} bunnies and a dog. The children do not enjoy taking care of them and whine and moan every time they have to provide food and love. But when they make paper fish, they spend every second of their evening feeding them invisible food and telling them how much they love them. Baffling isn't it?

Happy Tuesday folks!!!!!

Too funny that your mind would take down the coyote in hero form, but run away screaming and poop your pants if it were a bear. There ya go - have someone jump out at you in a bear suit, and your constipation will be taken care of. ;)

I will never understand the male gender...ever, either! ;)

Princess Nagger and Hovering Hubby leave their clothes (and shoes) around willy nilly, too. No matter where I put a laundry basket or hamper. I've never been able to figure that out!

Too funny your kids 'play' with and take care of paper fish way better than real, live animals - Princess Nagger is the same way!

I'm impressed you can remember your random thoughts.

I've had a million fabulous ideas for posts, but when I sit down to empty my brain, I find it already is.

Well, duh.. the paper fish are the new pets that can do anything and you never have to clean up their poop.

P.S. you are not alone in your clothing battles. I still find dirty clothes in the living room. No one has ever changed in the living room... I just don't get it.

I am laughing at the fish, my son is the same way.

Heatherlyn said...

My kids are the same way with pretend pets!

If you ate enough fiber it might offset the big mac. :)

You are not the only one to ponder what you would do if you encounter animals in the wild. :)

I love the fake fish!

Mom in High Heels said...

OMG, this was awesome. I like the way your mind works.

Let's have Random Thought Tuesday every day!

My boys are older - but yet not- I still don't get them and they still don't get the whole dirty clothes in the laundry basket thing.
Oh well.
Love the Random!

Foursons said...

Bahahaha! I cracked up at all of these. I too don't understand boys, nor do they understand the purpose of a laundry basket, and the paper fish...well that's just hilarious.

Jenners said...

That is too weird about the paper fish.

And no woman understands the male gender ... just like they don't understand us.

And I think your blockage would be fixed by your proposed meal or an encounter with a bear, whichever comes first.

That is sooooooo funny about the coyote. I am always figuring out ways to be the hero and save the day, especially at night while waiting in the shadows for someone to break in (yep psycho mom moments for me are fun!)

As for the boys... we have to (bribe) ahem explain to PB our youngest why it's not polite to play with one's privates and why clothing is important before venturing outside. If it were up to him, he'd be naked all day long lol.

Too funny, you had me laughing so hard. I probably wouldn't run if I saw a bear, I am guessing I would freeze up and just stand there standing and wetting me pants:)

I have a laundry basket in my son's 9 month old room, he uses it to sit in, and some days I find toys in it

The laundry basket thing goes on into adulthood for guys. We struggle with it.
