Tuesday's Random Thoughts

I have many weird things floating around in my brain right now. I figured I'd write a random thoughts post.

  • Today was so chilly outside when I walked the dogs that I could see my breath.
  • They are calling for snow for Friday.
  • I was glad that I raked all the leaves from the backyard Sunday when I heard they were calling for snow on Friday, but after last night's rain shower my backyard looks like it did before I raked it...sigh
  • I'm ready to start listening to Christmas music and decorating.
  • I have the urge to organize and toss things, but I really have nothing to organize and discard...I guess that's a good thing.
  • I'm dreading figuring out our taxes for 2007 since I basically have had a home business babysitting this year. I have a feeling I'm going to get raped by the government. sigh...nothing ever changes
  • Bug has decided he's going to become a vocalist for Cirque de Soleil. His act consists of standing on the arm of the futon like it's a balance beam, swinging from the cat tree and singing Weird Al's song I'll Sue Ya and the ABC song. He needs to come up with a cool dismount for his grand finale.
  • I'm tired of snot. At least Bug now knows how to let me blow his nose instead of me sitting on him to use the booger sucker.
  • I hate the hiccups.
Oh, and I have to share this conversation that I had with Bug yesterday. Here's the backstory. It was laundry day (darks) around our house and Bug has become my designated helper. He has to help put the clothes hangers in the shirts so I can hang them to dry on the rack. He has to hand me each piece of clothing from the basket so I can drape it over the rungs of the little rack. If you are wondering, I hardly use the dryer except for sheets and things that I can't hang inside. I do hang things outside during the spring/summer when I can. Anyway, Bug's also very good at carrying small piles of dry clothes into my room to put on my bed for folding. This was our conversation while he was handing me Darling Hubby's boxers and shirts.

Me: Hand me the next one, please.
Bug: Here you go, Mommy.
Me: Thank you.
Bug: You're welcome (it actually came out like "webcomb" since he has a stuffy nose.) Here you go, Mommy.
Me: Thank you.
Bug: You're welcome. Here you go, Mommy.
Me: Ok, hold on, this shirt is inside out and I need to fix it before hanging it up.
One second wait
Bug: Here you go, Mommy.
Me: Hold on a second.
One second wait
Bug: Here you go, Mommy.
Me: Thank you, Bug. You are a good helper.
Bug: You're welcome...Here you go...

Either he's very literal when I said hang on a second or he's really gung ho about hanging up laundry. Either way, it was a cute conversation.

Well, those are my random thoughts for today. It was actually kinda fun and it made me feel good to get them out of my brain. I'm thinking maybe I should do this every week.

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog last week! Isn't it fun when you can start having "conversations" with them? My 3.5 year old is in the why? stage now and she sure can come up with some crazy "why...?" questions!
