Writing (Without Thinking)

I think Coco used to do this.  You know, when she blogged?

I'm giving myself about 10 minutes to compose some of my random thoughts.  This, Blake, will help in my entry into the nuthouse.  Go ahead and print these out.

*The current 'trends' on Yahoo right now are:  Lamar Odom, a purse worth over $200K, Gifts for Mom, and Depression.  What is wrong with the world?  Seriously.

*My seasonal wreath is still in orange on burlap.  Tacky Santa is outside next to our Charlie Brown-esque decorated 'chocolate' tree, as the kids call it.  I've even tied an enormous red satin sheen bow on a hanging plant.  But, I can't get around to changing my wreath and it's pretty much killing me.

*Coco reminds me of Christina Applegate on Up All Night.  Do yall watch it?

*I haven't been to a movie in over 3 weeks.  My 'regular' theater has called and said sales are slow and could I please come in.  Awkward.

*When I told Lainey she couldn't have a sleep over with Rylee two nights ago and that she could not call Miss Allison to check, she responded with, "Fine.  I will text her."  She's 4.  Teenage years with her are going to be a joy.

*In the midst of my near breakdown, work piled a mile high, laundry overflowing, presents still needing to be wrapped and shipped, I'm also planning a 2 day trip to Disneyland with Allison and kids.  With hotel.  We're smart.

*Living near Camp Pendleton is often odd because you can hear the Marines blowing up stuff.  Not loudly......but the faint sound of bombs going off is a bit intriguing at times.

*I love the show, Suburgatory.  It's one that I actually take the time to watch.

*Speaking, of The Bachelor is back in January!  New reason to live.  Praise the Lord.

*I miss Batman so much.  Finn McMissle is a cutie, but I find myself missing Batman more and more as Finn does stuff he did.  Big shoes to fill.  Or paws.

*I've been wearing my hair in pig tails for about a month now b/c it's too long and I need to get it cut and colored, but there is the constant lack of time in my life.  I am pretty sure I'm too old for pig tails, but I don't have many options at this point.

That's it!  Back to work.

Keeping busy! Hang in there!

Never too old for pigtails... so no worries.

I was thinking about Batsy boy the other day... rewatched that amazing video you and the kids made for me and Hann last year while we were dying at school- where you wrapped him up.

My heart hurts for you... cuz without my kitty boys, I'd be lost. So here's what I've decided. Batman ran into some hot little number, let's call her Miss Puss (yup, somewhat inappropriate but revelant too- she's a cat after all) and the two of them found a secret underground kitty palace, stocked with tuna and catnip and mice to chase. They wear crowns and silk capes and sleep in beds made of fleece and electric blankets. Pretty much I picture him living the life... and of course, he has pictures of the punks near his bed. Just what I imagine in my head.

Every time our kitty Lucy runs out the door I think of Batman. So far she always comes home but I worry.

You can't write about pigtails without an accompanying picture!!!

Love, love, love your random post! It sounds like you are soooo busy! Hang in there!

Quinn, Allison, Rylee and Cailyn McNamara said...

I hope you worked the Krikorian over to try to get some kind of deal! You know, "I'll come back if you give me free popcorn and soda every time I'm there for the next year!"
I'm still laughing about Laine's text. Can't wait for her to have an actual phone. You'd better just hope that her rebellion at that point is still texting ME in the middle of the night (:
I think that Disneyland is going to be good medicine! Now if only we could find a way to dump the kids somewhere so we could go by ourselves...

Love that you keep in real! Why is Lamar Odom trending, those thing are so random. The other day it was someone else that I was baffled by too.

I am so sorry about Batman. I am sure that has been rough. Hang in there.

Impulsive Addict said...

Yep. Completely random.

Lamar is only famous b/c he's married to a Kardashian (and an NBA player) but why are the K's famous? It pisses me off to think about it.

I live near an ammunition plant. My windows shake Monday-Friday from 11:00-11:30. It's annoying.

Lainey needs to slow down on growing up. Lord!

I'm excited about The Bachelor!!!

Pigtails? All time low. Just started watching Up All Night. I think it's funny.
Lamar Odom is trending here in TX b/c he got traded to the Mavs.

Cant wait for The Bachelor!!

Monica said...

I enjoyed your random thoughts. I love Suburgatory too. Great show!

Monica said...

PS...I just got my hair did on Saturday after 9 months. It feels so good! I feel like me again!

I remember when Coco blogged. I miss that. I love the randomness. Missing a pet is hard. It's been almost a year for us and we are talking about getting a new one. Missy Mack is afraid our hearts will forget Lucy if we get a new animal. What is it with kids and texting? I get asked to send texts all the time by the little lady.
