Oh yeah!
It's RaNDoM!
And have I got RaNDoM for you!


* Did you know that Q comes BEFORE R
Evidently I am having a hard time with that because I always open the "R" file cabinet, am shocked that I can't find the "Q" files and have to sing "O, P, Q, R" of the alphabet song to myself.

* My co workers are horrified by my eating habits.
Breakfast - half a sleeve of Ritz crackers and a Coke.
Mid Morning Snack - A Sees Pecan Truffle.
Lunch - Lays Potato Chips and some Hostess Crumb mini donuts and a Coke.
I DID have a nutritious dinner at IKEA at 7:30.

* A man at work does Weight Watchers.
He explained the "point system" to me.
He gets 40 points a day.
He said I would probably get 25-30 points a day.
Those mini donuts would be 17 of those points.
I'm glad I'm not doing Weight Watchers!

* My family thinks I am crazy because I clean the house BEFORE the house cleaner comes.
She only comes every other week.
So we do have to clean toilets and vacuum ourselves.
But it drives them nutty when I rush around cleaning the night before.
I explained that if *we* didn't pick up the nine pairs of shoes scattered on the laundry room floor, she wouldn't be able to mop the floor.
She's only there for a limited time.
If she spends all that time picking up, straightening desks and making beds,
You get this right?

* Text from Parker:
"I think I'll take a rain check on English."
I called him.
"Why aren't you going to English?"
"We have a substitute for the 17th time."
"You can't miss English 27 times!"
"Wow! I've missed it 3 times.  There's a huge difference between 3 and 27."

He has a point.
I might be exaggerating.
But we sure TALK about missing English a lot!

* I had a dream last night that I was writing blog topics on scraps of paper at a high school baseball.
The kids were angry because the cafeteria ladies were running the concession stand.
I thought it was cool because we got these big crockery/cafeteria style bowls of nacho cheese.
Oh and.........the game was at 7:15 in the morning.
I have problems!!!!!!

If this was RaNDoM enough for you........head on over and see Stacy.
Happy Tuesday!

If I had a house cleaner I would totally pick up so she could clean. There is a ton of difference between picking up and cleaning. One has to be done so the other can take place. See, simple concept.
I still have difficulties with letter order. I would totally fail the sobriety tests where they ask you to do the alphabet, even if I wasn't drunk.

So what's the problem with your meals? Throw an apple in there,maybe?

As a cleaning lady, I hear you loud and clear!!

We won a "bathroom clean" at a service auction for the youth once....the lady offering it was one of my friends...I TOTALLY cleaned before she came, how embarassing if it would have been messy!

Julianna said...

Hmm. Huge difference between 3 and 27. At least we know he's not skipping math.

*quietly sings her ABC's to herself*

I sing the abc song too, um kind of all the time while attempting to help Chick with homework. In my defense sometimes it takes her so long to write something I forget which letter I'm trying to help her write.

DysFUNctional Mom said...

Your eating habits make MY stomach hurt! LOL
I used to clean houses for a living and you would have been my favorite type of client. And you're absolutely right!

Rachael said...

Way back when I had someone come to clean the house I would clean before she came...it was exhausting...I totally get what you mean!
I am amazed that you can eat like that and stay so little! Its crazy when you see point-wise what food is...I get 29 a day. An In-and-Out shake is 18, a burger 14 and their fries are like 12. CRAZY!!!!!!!!

Obviously it's much better to pick up shoes than clean toilets. But my husband has to stop me from making the bed when we stay in a hotel, so what do I know? And I still have to sing the ABC song whenever I'm required to do anything in alphabetical order.

I wish I could have those kinds of things and look like you- you're so lucky to have a great metabolism!
