Random Bits of Information

Nothing super enlightening, nothing life changing nor earth shattering...just a little self discovery and reflection over happenings as of late.  Random bits of information.  Here they are in random order...because I wouldn't have it any other way.


1. I don't like teenagers.  They are mutated children with a distorted sense of entitlement.  They believe they are knowledegable way beyond their years and lack the ability to comprehend that we too were once their age.  They are smartmouthed and cranky.

2. Five words: I.love.laser.hair.removal.

3. The woman buying our house requested all of the curtains I made as part of her offer, regardless of the fact that they were listed as "not included" in the seller's disclosure.  Not happy about this.

4. The Painted Lady caterpillars are getting REALLY big and starting to gross me out a little.

5. I am so over Ryan and I being the "mean, overprotective, strict parents" because we are the house with the rules and structure. (Hence random topic number 1) I'm sorry you have to do homework every night, go to bed at an accpetable hour, and not eat junk food 24/7. 
Over it. Talk to me in 15 years and see if you have changed your mind. Next topic.

6. A few weeks ago, I called Ryan in the car and casually emntioned that Darius Rucker (former lead singer for Hootie and the Blowfish) was playing at WinStar Casino on April 24th. Twenty minutes later, I received an email with confirmation of 2 tickets to the concert. About 15 minutes after that, I received another email with confirmation for a room at the hotel and dinner reservations. Sweetest man ever.

7. I cannot believe lake season is just around the corner. That means bikini time. I need some will power because this is the time of year when there is ALWAYS something going on at school related to food. For example, yesterday...HUGE teacher luncheon with LOTS of desserts. Not good for bikini season.

8. Ryan picked up a piece of dog poop in the dark last night. Apparently one of our little doggies thought the dining room rug was the perfect spot to do her business while we were attending Preston's baseball game. Ryan's shoe grazed a piece while turing out the lights, causing it to roll onto the wood floor. All Ryan saw was something dark in the shape of a ball, and thinking it was just that, he reached down and picked it up. That's when I heard his discovery of what actually he had in his hand. Gross.

9. Monday night I dreamed I was at my parent's old house I grew up in, and as my mother and I were walking outside the front door, a woman pulled up in a maroon Lincoln and tossed out the body of a deceased female. Where in the world did my brain come up with that? Too much CSI?

10. We have to be out of our home in less than 30 days and have no clue where we're going yet. I keep looking at all the stuff we have to pack, pretending we don't really have to pack it.

The End
Happy Wednesday!!!

great post! Love Darius! He lives here in the Carolinas!
I can't believe that about the curtains.
post some of them. Would love to see!

Sara said...

Darius Rucker has a great voice. That'll be a good concert! Would you believe we still haven't been to Winstar yet?

Cracking up about Ryan and the poop. That is disgusting! Totally something that would happen to me though.

Good luck with the packing/finding a new home. It's such a beatdown, but just think of how organized you'll be at the new place!

Stacey said...

Definitely agree with #1!!!! Isn't it funny how they think they are adults until it comes time to being one! I'm glad I was never like that! :)

One of my friends requsted someone leave their furniture as part of her offer. I think thats kinda weird.

Be the mean, overprotective parents!! Apparentley I am too!

I would love to see Darius Rucker!

I'm working on a bikini body myself. Good luck!

Coco said...

Amanda said...

You are so funny and you DO have the sweetest husband ever! Maybe Ryan could rub some of that charm onto Brad :)Have fun this weekend on your romantic getaway!

FROGGITY! said...

Hahaha love this! I was a smartmouthed teen myself. And It didn't take 15 years for me to realize nothing good happens after midnight, money doesn't grow on trees, and missing one social event wasn't the end of the world. :)
Ryan and the poop is a very familiar story...!

How sweet your hubby is! Hope you have a great time at the concert: )

The Rand's said...

Need to hear more about #2.

#8 makes me laugh. Out loud. Hard.

I can't imagine my girls as teenagers. They already have a tude and H is starting to roll her eyes. Really? I don't think so!

Hope you have so much fun this weekend!

I can't speak from first-hand knowledge, other than with my younger siblings, but have always thought teenagers were a lot like toddlers.

They think they know everything.
They think they're invincible.
Nearly impossible to reason with.

Agreed?

Love the concert idea. How sweet.

I dread the whole teenager thing...sorry if my kids won't have cell phones to text on and brand new cars to drive.

Good luck with packing/moving. I say take the curtains with you!
