Welcome to the first Random Tuesday Thoughts of 2010! Woo hoo, a fresh year of non-sense and brain clutter. Wander around, poke at the random and then go visit Keely at The Un-Mom (see button above) for other fresh thoughts.
I realized over the break that if blankets were money, my kids would be rich. Between the two of them they have 19 blankets! Even more surprising is that all of these blankets get used. Each has its own purpose and place in their lives (small ones go in their crib, and large ones for snuggling in the chair with Mama. One Grammie blanket for daycare and one for home.) Admittedly, one or two get used by me, but still it's usage. A good blanket is very versatile. It can keep you warm, it can provide a place to sit, it can cover things up, or hold them while being carried. You can make a tent, or pretend to hide. Yeah, we're big fans of our blankets. Thanks to everyone who gave us a blanket this holiday!
PB has been sick for about a week now. I feel bad for him because he's obviously feeling horrible. When adults are sick I have only one rule: don't make a mess. You don't have to help with your regular stuff (I'll take out the trash, and shovel the porch), but don't add to the mess. I don't care how sick you are, you can put your mug into the dishwasher. You can toss your orange juice carton into the trash instead of leaving it on the counter. PB, if you don't get your act together, I might put you out of your misery.
Have you seen the new cranberry Raisinettes? I've tried them, and I like them. I'm a tad confused, though. They're in the healthy section, near the dried fruit. Specifically, right near the cranberries and raisins. But regular Raisenittes are in the candy section. Not near the raisins at all. So, what makes these cranberry ones any healthier? They're still coated in Nestle chocolate. I get the feeling that someone is trying to pull a fast one on me. It's working.
Do you fall out of touch when you're home on vacation? I realized yesterday morning that I hadn't had any "news" in about two weeks. Normally, I share the Wall Street Journal with my co-workers daily. But at home, I didn't even turn on CNN. So, I had no idea that there was a "security breach" on Christmas Day. I'm not sure if that was a good thing or a bad thing, but I'm happy to be back in the "real" world, at least.
Last night while giving little o a bath, we realized that his chub rolls over his diaper (please note that this excited us because LG's never did- he was always a "lean" kid). I joked that he had a "muffin top". PB wondered if it was a "mini-muffin top"? We just crack ourselves up, I tell you.
Ok, enough random for you. Go do something worthwhile. Plant a tree. Or do your taxes. Have a good week, all.
