Randomness VIII

Photo via Beach House Living on Etsy

1.  I use swear words more than I'd like to admit. I need to learn to say "substitute words" in place of them and try to refrain from dropping expletives.

2.  Sometimes I let me eyebrows grow past the point of acceptable, which is actually unacceptable, ewwww.

3.  My husband and I make fun of the fact that we both wear retainers during the night (and I absolutely cannot speak clearly while wearing mine).

4.  To all crafters:  remain friendly, but keep it short and sweet.  I still do not understand, and probably never will, the questions and conversations people hold with the register clerks at craft stores.  Honestly, don't hold up the line because you feel the need to tell the clerk which project you will be applying to each and every item you are purchasing.  Wow.

5.  Project photos are coming!  Yes Faith, work has been done and I'll get to the garage this weekend to document the progress- yippee!

6.  Do you get "sick days" off work?  Mental health days?  Me......nope.  If I don't go in, I don't get paid.  I feel like taking several "mental rest days" as of late, then my pocketbook reminds me of reality.

7.  I should bake something for D, maybe some sort of dessert and be a domestic wife.  Will advise if anything comes about.

I have a 'potty mouth' too. And was thinking just the other day- I need to clean up my act. We can do this together :)

My eyebrows are unacceptable right now. I gross myself out sometimes.

I think a spiced-rum pumpkin pie would hit the right spot. Besides, it's easy breezy to make. Let me know if you need the recipe.

Yipee for project photos!!!!!!

I couldn't agree with you more on crafters holding up the line at craft stores! Seriously, who cares :)

I have many comments to this post.

First - As someone who has had braces multiple times, jaw surgery, headgear, and yes, retainers - who cares? As long as you both have them, lisp it up together!!

Second - I have the dirties mouth of any woman I have ever met. You are in good company.

Third - While Michael's is fun to go into, the checkout line is ALWAYS awful. I feel the need to punch someone every. single. time.

Fourth - Yes, I get sick days but that is cause I work for State Government. And yes, I took a 'mental health' day on Monday after I told my boss on Thursday that I was 'over this shit', meaning my job.

And lastly - I posted some of my pics in my blog, check them out and let me know what you think!

PS - It seems like I see those personalized forks/spoons all over PW now (when I actually sign on, it just doesn't seem the same now).

I feel like that is kind of ridiculous cause well...cit's a fork. Who is going to pay attention to a 'Bride' fork? Weddings sure get crazy with the stuff that we 'need' to have.
