Random Tuesday Thoughts: Affect & Effect & Unexplained Laziness

It's time for Random Tuesday Thoughts, and as I have said before...I refuse to use the little ugly purple button that everyone else uses. It just doesn't go with my color scheme :) Don't hate.

Hubby and I got our reservations at the hotel made for our Anniversary. I'm pretty excited about a little weekend away. First time ever without Bree! Wonder how long I'll make it before I take off down the mountain to get my Breezy? Maybe I won't miss her like I think I will.

I paid 1.25 for a HUGE box of Frosted Mini Wheats. Wanna know how much the regular price was? 3.99. I got two boxes for 2.50! I'll be writing a post on coupon-ing soon. You guys don't know what you're missing out on!

The worst part of my morning is when the coffee pot runs out of coffee. Seriously, why can't a coffee pot be like a sink, with an endless flow of coffee all day long every day?!

I feel lazy today. I feel like I should be running a marathon or something. I feel like I slept too late...but I really didn't. I feel like I should be doing something. Maybe it's because the sun is out today, and I can't use the "Oh it's raining and cloudy out so I'm going to have a lazy day" excuse. Whatever it is...it's bothering me.

We bought Bree a potty over the weekend. She likes carrying it from room to room to pee in it.

Our Winters haven't been this cold in a long, long time. I have decided that I don't like it much, and I'm really, really ready for Spring and more so for Summer. Winter is just not even cool.

My Brother has been gone for 5 weeks now, and I've only gotten 1 letter from him. ONE! My Parents have like 8, and his girlfriend 8. WTF lil' bro?

I have strange dreams in the mornings when Hubby leaves for work. Maybe it's because I go back to sleep after I've been awake for 30 minutes...and then only sleep for another 30 minutes. I don't know.

I'm sorry this Random Tuesday Thought thing has been sort of boring. As I said earlier about feeling lazy or whatever...I'm all off track this morning and I'm not sure why. I guess that's affected my randomness. When you haven't seen the sun in three days, it can have a sort of strange effect on you.

Do the words affect and effect confuse you? Sometimes they confuse me.

affect and effect ALWAYS confues me. I go out of my way not to use them. I feel off because it feels like monday

Sarah said...

Awww. A weekend away! That sounds fabulous. You will not miss your little one, at all (until you get home, and see her beautiful little face)

Katherine said...

LOL! Affect and Effect used to confuse me, but I am an English teacher, so I finally had to go figure it out. Affect is a verb, effect is a noun. Grammar lesson of the day!

And you'll miss her like crazy. More than you think. But somehow in there, I bet you'll have lots of fun, too. :)

Salt said...

Well whether it's a mobile potty or not, at least she's using it. :)

I'm sure you'll miss her a TON, but it will be nice to get a vacation for just the two of you! How exciting!

By the way, I think I need a coupon post. You are the most impressive bargain shopper I know. I must learn your secrets.

I love Frosted Mini Wheats too, because they ALWAYS have coupons and they're ALWAYS 2-for-1 at the grocery store. It's the one shopping excursion that makes me feel thrifty!

I know what you mean about having a tough time deciding on your decorating "style". At my house, I have a lot of dark furniture, but the rest of my decorating (paint, trim, accessories) is light. I guess (hopefully?) it's the best of both worlds.

Can't wait to hear your couponing skills!

I felt like that when we first left our kids to go away, but we really enjoyed ourselves.

Oh if you manage to find that coffee pot with endless fresh coffee all day long, please send me the link! I need one too!

Ian said...

Maybe instead of emailing you back and forth I'll actually comment and say that I thoroughly enjoyed this post :)

LOL! I always have to stop and think about which one I am using and if I am doing it right!!

Hope tomorrow is SUNNY!

You'll miss her, but you have to push it back so you can enjoy your time! Moms need some time away from the kiddos to appreciate them more when they get home. ;) It's good for her too. :)

Those two words always confused me too!! Same with stationary and stationery (but a teacher once told me the easiest way to remember the difference is to think of the "e" in stationery as "e" for envelope). I dunno...it made sense at the time!!

I've been a little off today too, probably because yesterday was a holiday so today feels like a Monday.

Becky said...

Bree GOES IN her potty?

Damnit.

Kato said...

I feel like I haven't seen the sun in a lifetime. This has been the most dismal Winter yet. Sigh.

And there is nothing wrong with being lazy sometimes. This is definitely the time of year for it. Spring and Summer are the time for busy fun! :)
