I love Tuesday! And other random things. . .

  • While I am usually ridiculously cold at work, today I was so hot. . . as in my cheeks were red, armpits sweaty (too much detail??), hair pulled back, sleeves rolled up HOT!  Ugh, can I not just be a regulated normal temp at work?

  • Why does it seem like the majority of blogs by women are from women who stay home with their kids?  Do working (outside the home) women not have the blogging gene?  Is it a time issue?  Lack of interest?  I would love to find and follow more blogs of working moms.  I love the blogs I follow of stay (and work your butt off raising kids) at home moms, but I would also love to read about the struggles and ups and downs of working moms. 

  • Why does it seem like when you are the most broke financially conservative, that is when things/opportunities/bills come out of the woodwork like crazy.  It is like Dave Ramsey says I guess, "Murphy follows broke folks" (I may be paraphrasing that).

  • I love how I have medical, dental, life, and vision insurance and yet I cannot get any insurance to pay for a doctor prescribed treatment to decrease the amount of headaches I have.  Hmmmm, not trying to be obnoxious, but wouldn't you think it would be better, cheaper for insurance companies to pay a one time $600 bill than a lifetime of prescription costs, ER visits, specialist office visits, etc. . . . . I'm just sayin'.

  • My little boy told me Happy Valentine's Day yesterday about 30 times.  It does not get much better than that.

  • My little girl gave me a wet sloppy kiss with a bit of leftover supper on her mouth.  And while my gag reflex was in full swing (I am not immune to the disgustingness of toddlers), it does not get much better than that.

  • Am I the only one out there not getting on the skinny jean train?  They remind me of when I used to roll my jeans, my white Guess jeans.  And then pull my socks over them.  And wear generic Keds.  And a multi-color sweater (think Bill Cosby).  Although I will admit, if I was as tiny as the models I see the skinny jeans on, I may jump on board.  But for now - I will stick with boot cut.

I know, right? I see them in magazines and I think, "oh cute!" And then I see them on someone of my frame and size and I think "oh that's why I have never bought a pair!" Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

I hear you on stay-at-home mom bloggers and even "professional" bloggers who make $ off blogging. So many of the blogs I read are these 2 types and I have to remind myself not to feel guilty for not getting a post up sometimes or having my house/life/family perfectly in order so I can post pictures of it. Blogging is supposed to be fun. When it starts putting pressure on me and feels like an obligation, I have to remember to take a step back from it because blogging is not my job.

Amber - I totally agree with you about blogging being fun. The days I feel pressure to blog. . . I usually don't. I sometimes wish I had more time to blog, but the reality of my life is that blogging is just a hobby, so real life, real job takes priority. Thanks for commenting!
