Random Monday

In CategoryNavel Gazing, Random Monday


I have such a backlog of stories, I don’t know where to begin.

• Big and I were going around and around about something the other day, and I told him to quit arguing with me, and he burst out, “I wouldn’t BE arguing with you if you’d just AGREE with me!”

• I accidentally saw a preview for a new show last night called Game of Crowns and it’s apparently about the most horrible people in the world and their quest to be Mrs. America. I don’t get pageants. I BARELY get why a teenager would do them (being that teenagers are inherently narcissistic and like being told how pretty they are), but why a grown woman with a husband and kids needs to spend that kind of money for whatever minuscule tidbit of validation a pageant offers escapes me.

BAM! I’m back and as judgey as ever!

• In my quest to fit everything we own into a house half the size, I have now acquired 245 Ikea bookcases. That makes me an official homeschooler, right? When my front room looks like Ikea vomited all over it?

yes, I know there’s an ugly box up there that needs to be unpacked, get off my back, man

• Random links I’ve been saving for you –

How to be the Best Food Blogger of All by Joy the Baker. This cracked me up.

A Better Way to Say Sorry at cuppacocoa. This got me thinking. There’s definitely got to be something better than the grudgingly mumbled “sorry.”

• Happy Monday, y’all!

    Good to see someone else blogging as frequently as me! At we still read each other’s blogs. DON’T talk to me about boxes! Just get off my back. Canberra is getting an Ikea!!!!!! (totally deserves multiple exclamation marks). Pageants are such an American thing. And not in a good way is all I’m saying.

    Thanks for visiting today. We do have a Roku box but once summer hits most of television is reruns so no real new episodes showing. At that point I have to look for television series I haven’t watched in the past and start them.

    My house has a ridiculous number of IKEA bookshelves. It’s a sickness….

    In other news…care to share that paint color on the walls? We are re-doing our living room and have gone through about 8 different colors trying to achieve something similar to what you’ve got going on.
