Random Thoughts

1.  Is it weird that David and I have different toothpaste? His makes me gag and mine makes him gag.

2.  "Then she'll carelessly cut you and laugh while you're bleeding." Sometimes I think these Billy Joel lyrics describe me perfectly.  Name that song.

3. I recently got a new shower curtain, proceeded to put it up with liner in and fabric out, got all the way finished and then saw the tag sticking out.  Yep, I put it up backwards.

4.  I actually thought about leaving it that way just because I didn't want to take the whole thing down and start over.

5.  Then I realized that if I didn't do it now, it would never get done.. and I mean never.  It would still be there if we moved away, the tag shining like a jewel... only dusty... and gross because I never took it down to wash it.

6.  Aren't you glad I took it down and did it right.

7.  David is I'm sure.

8.  It's difficult to cover white oil-based paint with blue acrylic paint.  And by difficult I mean nigh unto impossible.

9.  I think I'll have to sand it down and start over.  Only I won't.  I'll probably just cover it with paper.

10.  I filled my snack jar with Jolly Ranchers, lemon drops, cherry sours, and pretzel M&Ms.

11.  There are approximately 5 pretzel M&Ms left, and most of the others.

12.  I even buried them at the bottom thinking it would be a deterrent... not so.

13.  What's even sadder is that the rest had been there going on 2 weeks... the M&Ms for the weekend.

14.  Sigh.

15.  Last Sunday when I got up to lead the hymns in Sacrament meeting, the chair closed on the corner of my skirt and almost pulled it off as I moved to the music stand.

16.  If the chair had had a stronger hold and if I hadn't of had a long enough shirt... my underwear would have done all the talking for me.

17.  Then we would have had to move.

My best Saturday wishes for you all.


  1. My husband and I have different toothpaste as well. Maybe we are the only ones?

  2. Hahahahahahahahahaha....

    1. Isaac and I can't share ANYTHING, so I don't think this is weird at all.

    3. Best thing ever? This hook I bought at bed bath and beyond. Liner hooks on back hooks, curtain hooks on front hooks. SO easy to change it out. Brilliant.

    15. Again, whahahahahahahahahahaha...I would have totally done that, except it would have come completely off. I know it.

  3. #1- No that's not weird. Makes perfect sense.

    #2- She's Always a Woman to Me.... I can hear the music now :) I love Billy Joel!

    I think I am going to have to try these magical M&M's to see what all the hype is about.

    Maybe they should have foldy chairs in dressing rooms to try out such situations. Could be a new marketing angle "Now FOLDY CHAIR PROOF! Keep your decency AND your peace of mind. All for only $35.99"

    PS what's the oil/acrylic paint project??

  4. I for one am going to have to go with, no, not weird that you don't use the same toothpaste.

    I invested in these: shower curtain hooks. I do say invested, because they were pricey and I thought about it for a long time before I paid that much for shower curtain hooks. SO worth it.

    Have you tried painting over the oil paint with primer? I think Kilz would work, then you can paint over that with latex.

  5. Love all the suggestions! the oil paint project is just a silly little magnetic board that I painted a navy blue strip on and then tried to paint "Dream" in a white oil-based paint pen. It wold have worked had it not jammed and then just blurghed all over the place.

    I tried my best to smooth the edges, work the blob-urgh-stuff out and came out with a mess.

    I think I'll try the primer... maybe. what a lot of work for such a small project!

  6. I didn't see that Tawnya had already commented on the same hooks.

    You can buy spray paint Kilz. I'm thinking maybe even at Michaels with a coupon, then it wouldn't be so much? Sorry, I'd totally let you use some if I had some, but I don't right now.

  7. I'm so glad you didn't have to move!

  8. I totally get all of this. And have done some of it.

    You're awesome.
