Random Tuesday Thoughts


I am new to this feature this week, so lets give it a go. If you want to join in just head over to The Unmom and check out her site for the button and all that good stuff.

Why is it that my dog and my daughter have to be all up in my business all.day.long.? This drives me insane!! Just for once I would like to not have people or animals constantly touching me. I am all touched out by the time the Hubs gets home from work and then he wants to snuggle on the couch and I give him the look of death for coming near me.

And Hello! What the heck happened to 15 year old girls actually LOOKING like 15 year old girls and not 20-something girls? I swear, why do Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez or Miley Cyrus have to wear enough makeup and sassy clothes to make them look older than me (at the ripe old age of 32)? Of course my daughter loves these girls, yes I said GIRLS - that is what they are!! and mimics what she sees them wearing. I am so not ready for my not-even-5-year old to be dressing and acting like a hooch.

I remember the days when I had 3 hours to get myself ready in the morning...I miss those days sometimes. There are some days when I am lucky to brush my teeth and throw my hair up before running out the door to swim class, dance class, pom/cheer, library, playdates, zoo and all the other million things we have going on.

My mom got her first tattoo today. She is in her early 50's. She is in Connecticut (where we are from originally) visiting her sisters and some other assorted family members who shall remain nameless...cuz this is my blog and that's just how I roll...anyway so my Aunt Bert (Bertha) decided that she and my mom needed to go get tattoo's. My aunt got a winnie the pooh and piglet tat on her ankle while my mom got a heart with a bow thing on her ankle. If you knew my mom, its totally her - all girly and stuff. Mom flies home tonight so I am excited to see her tattoo tomorrow. I remember when my brother and I got our first tattoo's (and second and third...) and how she flipped out originally.

Well I think that is enough random-ness for now!


  1. Loving your randomness!

    Oh how beautiful we would all be with 3 hours of alone time each morning. I'd kill for that right about now!

    And Yay for Mom's tat!

  2. I love you randomness! It's so fun to see all of the newbies joining up. This is one of my favorite memes!

  3. My babysitter...has Kate Gosselin's hair. It is the oddest thing....

    I'm going to get a tat on my 40th birthday. A big red pair of lips on my butt and when my husband says something I don't like...I will moon him.

    Cuz that's how I roll!

  4. OMG Connie you are too funny! I actually have a big red pair of lips on my butt for the exact same reason. I always used to tell people to kiss my hiney (insert bad word here!) so I finally got it tatted on!! haha

  5. I hate the "girls" of today..nothing like Madonna of our days! Hee Hee!


  6. its actually very disturbing how provactive young girls look and behave.

    i can't believe your mama got a tattoo! that is so funny.

    very good first random tuesday.

  7. How fun of your mom. I wish I was brave enough to get one. I'm SO with you on the girls of today and their clothes. Drives me crazy.

  8. Ahhh, I remember them days! lol. (my first time here, and very funny post I might add!) It gets better, it really does. Although it sorta gets worse in other ways. lol. Mine are all teens now. And I get a good couple hours alone in the morning (in the summer) and it's frickin fabulous!

  9. I know what you mean about the young girls looking like they are in their 20's. I don't want my daughter dressing like that at that age either. Have a wonderful day!


Thanks for leaving me a comment!
