Random Tuesday Thoughts

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.

Guess what?! After a year of procrastinating, I finally made that OBGYN appointment. I feel accomplished. Of course, I don't go for another month...so I have a few weeks before I start getting nervous. Oh how I hate Doctor visits.

24 days from today, my brother will be a United States Marine. Forgive my counting down, but I have had a countdown on my phone since the day he left for boot camp. It's true. I remember when the countdown used to say 89 days. and now we're almost in the teens!

My name is Samantha, and I am a Desperate Housewives addict.

Unlike most kids, Bree is a pretty good little kid (most of the time) whenever we go grocery shopping. Betcha you'll never guess what her favorite aisle in the grocery store is? The cookie aisle!

My house smells like Summer. It's such a nice smell.

Our A/C went out last night, so we had to open the window in our room. I woke up this morning to the sound of birds chirping, and a soar throat. Not good. Let's hope the A/C gets fixed soon though. Once when I was about 13 or 14 years old, our A/C went out in the middle of the Summer, and it took nearly a week before we got it fixed. We went outside in the 80 degree weather to get relief from the inside heat. Sometimes I think it's better to be freezing to death, although, you're generally not saying that when you're freezing to death.

I took the word verification off of my comments to make everyone happy, and then got bombarded with all sorts of random comments that didn't hardly make any sense. Tempted to put it back on, but instead I moderated the comments so that no anonymous users could live me any comments. If that doesn't work, I'm putting the word verification back on.

I feel like today should be Wednesday. I hate when I have weeks like that; I'm always one day ahead and it doesn't make the week go by any faster.

On groceries yesterday, I took what would have been 100 dollars in groceries, and only paid 50 for them. I plan on getting everything back out of the cabinet that I bought yesterday, taking a picture, and letting you all see. Hubby was pissed when he opened the trunk to get the groceries out. He was all like, "HOW MUCH DID YOU SPEND?!" and I was all like, "Fifty bucks!" and then he was all like, "You lie". I showed him the receipt, he hit the floor. Yes ladies & gentlemen, I am the coupon master!

How is your Random Tuesday going?

Hey, I'm not only a desperate housewife, I love the show too, total addict!

Good for you on being the coupon queen! I used coupons for years, bought all my crystal and china with the money I saved using them. Too bad that Canada has pretty much done away with grocery coupons now. I had it down to a science :)

Happy Tuesday to you

The fact that you have to have your AC on is making me jealous. 50 degrees with foggy mist. That's what I have.

When I lived in southern Arkansas, our house did not have AC. The house was that old! It sucked. I was pretty much a sweaty, nasty, smelly mess all summer long. Great feeling for a teenage girl, let me tell you! :)

Your coupon mastering never fails to impress me! One day I aspire to be that good at it. :)

When I lived in Los Angeles, I was in a studio apartment with no air conditioning. In the middle of the summer, it was no less than 110 degrees in my apartment during the day. I would put my cat in the bathroom (coolest room in the house) and make him a bed out of frozen washcloths and bags of frozen peas and then I would lie in the bathtub with no water in it. Never again will I live anywhere that does not have air conditioning hahaha!

Our AC went out during summer a few years ago. Had to go to a hotel for a few days, it was over 100 degrees inside the house.

I took the comment verification off my site, and so far have not gotten hit with any spam.

I don't use word verification, but I don't allow anonymous comments.

Wow, your brother's graduation is almost here!

The Girl Next Door Grows Up said...

I bow again to your couponing skills!

That is so cool.

I have to have A/C. I hate being hot. I would rather FREEZE than be ever so slightly hot in the house!

Ally said...

Wow, being in NY this week, I can't imagine using the AC. Ha ha! We're so cold at night.

I never go to the OB/GYN. I mean, never. That is the only doctor I avoid :(

Jana said...

Isn’t it amazing how interesting thoughts pop into our minds when we are not trying to think…
