Thursday Thoughts By Yours Truly

This picture has absolutely nothing to do with this post. It's just adorable. Whenever I say "cheese!" Magnus smiles like this. Hilarious.

I have been having quite a boring week. My hubs is out of town. In Utah. Without me. But really, I'm okay with that. He's doing repairs on our house there and giving a good, stern talking to to our renters who need to catch up on their rent. Big time. I hate being a landlord.

Ayway, have a gander at some recent thoughts that have been rolling around inside my head. (That makes it sound like not a whole lot is up there. Which is probably true.)...

~I have to have my blinds pulled up and open during the day. I like my house nice and bright. And if there are two windows next to each other, the blinds have to be exactly even. None of this slanted blinds stuff. Exactly even. Or it will bug me every time I see it, until I fix it.

~I do not like to cook or bake with my kids. I have no patience for it and it pretty much drives me up the wall. I used to feel really guilty about it, but I don't anymore. I just don't like it. Now I tell them that they can help me in the kitchen when they're 10. And when Laylah turns 10, that rule will change to 12. Haha.

~I hate when people use the word "guac" instead of "guacamole". I realize that by revealing this, everyone is going to go around saying guac in front of me all of the time just because they'll think it's funny. But seriously, don't do it. It bugs.

~I love to sing and dance in the car. Especially with my kids. I move the rearview mirror down so I can see them all in the back and we sing to each other and rock out. I love it. And I don't care when people in other cars stare and/or laugh at me. I just smile and wave and keep on singing. This is most fun when all of the windows are down.

~I finally joined Pinterest. Why? I don't know. I'm already regretting it. I told myself I wasn't going to do it, and I caved. Big time. And I love it. Why? I don't know. What is it about it? I hate it. But I don't. I love it. Just like I knew I would. I'm so weak.

Alright, that's it for me.... I'm off to fold a gazillion piles of laundry and watch TV. And dang it, I just realized I missed The Office while I was wasting more time on Pinterest. I knew that place was bad news. I just knew it.

Any random thoughts buzzing around in your head? Do share!

Thanks for making me laugh. I so feel your thoughts! Pinterest is the devil. Making us all covet and jealous and wantful!! Love it though. We were meant to be friends you and I. Why did you move away???

That's hilarious...I hate the word guac too. Ben leaves me next week. Sorry Andy's in Utah. Being a landlord sucks. I'm glad you're writing again!

That is why you need an ipad...I watch tv while playing on Pinterest. I am not stuck in front of the computer. I too my friend hate cooking/baking with my kids. But I am learning to have more patience because they love it. Dave is much better at it than me, so they help when he is making something. Hehe! :)

You are so hilarious! I am so glad I am not the only one I am the same way with my kids and cooking/baking Curtis however has the patience so I am glad they have the experience with one of us:o)

While I don't mind cooking with the kids, I've never had much patience for bedtime stories.

You crack me up.

Will you send me a link to your Pinterest? I haven't joined, but I do like looking at other peoples pins.

I'm anti people this week, so I'll spare you my thoughts ;)

I loved this post! I especially loved the part about you all singing and dancing in the car. :)
