Thoughtful Thursday

20 01 2011

Here are some things which have been rolling around in my brain:

* The best plan is a loose plan
*Motherhood has made me calm the f down (well, after all the near-dying-crazy-hormone-drama ceased)
* People who make baby clothes probably don’t have a baby
* I never realized how I take simple things for granted, such as realizing I have hands, rolling over, bladder control…
* God bless the inventors of washing machines, cell phones, laptops and e-mail subscriptions
* I live in a culture of excess
* YOT’s lease is up in two weeks and I haven’t even considered looking at new vehicles
* Vanity is a selfish reason to not to do something
* My instincts are more right than ever
* Meals are best enjoyed warm. Beer is best enjoyed cold. I am lacking both simple pleasures.
*You get what you pay for and if your therapist isn’t totally covered by your insurance, it may be worth paying for.
* Some bands/artists I do not like: ELO, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, The Eagles, John Melloncamp (all incarnations), Celine Dion

Hmmm. Interesting how some things continue to bother us forever, and other things we can brush off with no worries. I think I might have to come up with my own list…..
1) why do people that drive Subarus drive like idiots in bad weather?
2) why do people that drive BMWs act like they own the road?
ok .. I think you get where I’m at at the moment. Northern Virginia and the DC area just named the “worst traffic in the US.” THAT IS WHY.
Ok. Off to make some decaf.
Glad you are better, and finding some time to stay in touch.

Okay – I totally take issue w/ #1. I may drive a Subaru and you may think I drive like an idiot, but the snow has absolutely NOTHING to do w/ it.

PS: I totally agree w/ you on #2. I also think volvo drivers have a special category unto themselves.

Usually it’s the people with SUVS *cough* or REALLY expensive cars who drive stupid.
Though, I do know a couple Subaru drivers who drive like jerks because they think AWD allows them to be reckless (though wreckless would be better).

I agree with many things on your list, with the exception of ELO, but I especially agree with you on the baby clothes thing. Case in point: Jean overalls and things that button in the back.

UGH! Buttons in the back! WHO does that?!? People who do not own squirmy babies!!! Do they even take diapering into consideration?
*Screaming*

I am SO happy to have a new post from you, Bouncer — you are deeply missed among the SLOBS. Well, pretty much everyone is deeply missed at this point, but…

Glad to hear you are faring well, save for the bad music and warm beer. But at least some food tastes good cold (I vote chicken wings & pizza!)

XOXOXOOX

MWAH!

I still can’t eat chicken, ends up all those fits he was throwing in utero were for good reason… uncommon, but not unheard of.

A beer fridge probably isn’t covered by insurance either, but might be cheaper and more effective therapy.

I know we’d BOTH be on board for that. I was thinking maybe a tap, so I can pour it as I need it and it’ll stay colder?

my dryer is making noises a dying dryer makes, and i really should do something about it, but most likely it will die suddenly and i’ll complain about it, and then have to rush out and buy a new one… because sometimes, it just doesn’t matter… here’s to cold beer and warm meals for you soon!

denial is a powerful tool… If I don’t hear it whining, it’s not whining.

“People who make baby clothes probably don’t have a baby.”

This is probably true. Most of them probably don’t even own pets.

But if they do, they shouldn’t be dressing pets in baby clothes anyway.

I especially like the 1st one. I am a very loose plan maker & it just gives you so much room for leeway & error. Especially error because you can say it was just a loose part of the plan

and to err is human!

I always craved a hot shower that lasted more than 45 seconds. And I’ve got news for you..the baby clothes are better now than when my guys were little. The crazies are still button buttons and snaps on the back? Oh SNAP…someone ought to slap them one.

28 01 2011
Stephanie of Stopbouncing

Slap them is right! Maybe we should make them snap 4,000 buttons on their clothes.

cheers…I hope you are staying warm in the frozen tundra! Can ya just stick the beer in one of them there glaciers?

BBBrrrrrr. The beer would probably freeze in the snowpile and then I’d be more sadderer.

“The best plan is a loose plan”… sounds good to me.

Now I’m worried that all the baby clothes I’ve been sending to my friend with children have been totally unpractical :-/

friends with children that should have been.

haha – the buddy of bosom complains of the warm / cold conundrum.

Glad you’re surviving, sense of humour intact 🙂
