It's time again. Some more randomness from me. Maybe it's because Ihave been working a ton, but my brain is in a deep fog. Instead of nice articulated thoughts, I'm just getting sporadic ideas that like to pop into my head at odd times. I right them down, and then one day I have this long list of thoughts that need a home.

So, with that said, it's time for some randomness. 

Other random segments. Onetwo and three.

1. I am in love with office supply stores. I don't know.They just make me happy. Sticky notes, shiny pens, reams of glowing white paper, cute notebooks with empty pages. Erik gets it, he likes them too. We have, more than once, leisurely strolled the isles together. Just for fun. 

Sticky notes help me to fool everyone into thinking I am sharp and on top of things!

2. I'd like to think that I look good in heals. Graceful, sexy, elegant. But, the reality is I more closely resemble miss piggy. I usually just stick to flats. It's safer.

3. I am that annoying last minute type of person. I call around for a babysitter a few hours before we want to go on a date. I call for a haircut appointment while I am on my way there. 

"I was wondering if you had any openings for a haircut?"

"Sure, when would you like to come in?" 

"Um. Well. Is now okay?"

"Erik can we stop at Home Depot while we are out today and buy everything we need to remodel the bathroom?"

I like to think of it as carefree and exciting, but really it just my flibbertigibbetness shining through!

It does drive Erik crazy sometimes. He's more of a planner. But, in the spirit of keeping life spicy I know he likes it. Sometimes. 

But look, the sink is all done and oh so pretty!

4. I am totally great at making very big decisions.

"Do you want to move across the country? Again?" 

"Do you want to have another baby?"

"Do you want to get married before your legally allowed too?"

"What font do you want to use on your business cards?"
"Oh, I don't know, I am really going to have to think about that. I might change my mind about twenty-five times before I can let you know for sure."

Small decisions, on the other hand, stop me dead in my tracks. 

I finally decided! Yay me!

5. When I was a little girl I remember walking through the mall with my Grandma shopping. She wouldn't take the time to try things on in the store, she'd just take them off the rack, pay for them and decide at home if she liked it or not. Made it real easy to buy new things all the time. It made shopping very simple. She would also bring bags in to the house through the back door and would very quickly put them in her closet. You know. Just better not to ruffle any feathers. 

I tell you all this because I found myself doing this very thing last Saturday. I find myself doing a lot of the things my grandma used to do. Love her. I had to run into Target for something quick. Yes, Erik needed cold medicine, but I just happened to get to the pharmacy department in a very round about way. A walk through the ladies department and then a quick breeze down the shoe isle. I grabbed an outfit and a pair of shoes to match. In and out in ten minutes! 

As I was leaving the store I found myself tying up the bag and sliding it in the car all James Bond like. It really wasn't necessary because Erik doesn't care if I shop. But, he doesn't like when I detour from my purpose and he doesn't love it when I leave him in the car, with all the kids, while I just "run in." Also, with him not feeling the greatest and all. You know. Just better not to ruffle any feathers! 

6. On that note, I got the cutest, most adorable new pair of shoes. It was 80 degrees on Saturday and so I felt the need to buy a summery outfit and a pair of sandals. Not bad for a ten minute shopping spree!

So adorable I can barely stand it!

7. I'm an all or nothin kind of girl. Really messy or really clean. Totally excited or totally bummed. High energy or completely lazy. Eat nothing or eat it all!

I'm currently going with the messy side of myself.

8. I am very much a homebody. One time I didn't cross the threshold for two whole weeks. And, it didn't bother me at all. 

9. I have no idea why I am addicted to house hunting shows. I don't want to move, I love our house, and we don't have the money for a vacation home. But, I love seeing what everyone else is buying. What kind of house can you get, for how much, where? 

10. I get really mad at Erik when he is driving and constantly looks over at me when I'm talking to him. I am a terrible passenger. I am really afraid of car accidents and so I am always on edge in the car. Anyway, the other day I was telling him to stop looking at me and to keep his eyes on the road.
He says in his very patient, understanding tone, "do you know why I look at you when your talking to me? Because you talk with gestures. I can't hear gestures honey. And then when you do say something, you mumble. So, I have gotten real good at reading your lips when we talk or reading your body language."
"Oh. Sorry."

I am so blessed to be with a man that totally and completely gets me. I am so abundantly thankful that we are doing this thing called "life" together, because without him I would feel lost.
Love you babe. Thank you for reading my lips!

I am with you on #7 I am all or nothing... with everything. Probably why I have three cats, three dogs and two kids (working on convincing the hubby for #3)... I work out hard or not at all (at the not at all stage in life~ after two kids- one of which was a seacow- it is really showing)... blog everyday or not for two months.


I have so many ideas for posts jotted down and not finished- this is a great idea- randomness (much like my life).


By the way I hate the car- I have envisioned the demise of my family or scenarios on how I would go about saving everyone one too many times.
