10 random things

1. My favorite number is 31. For some that may remember, I don't' like odd numbers, but I forgive it only because if you add them together it equals an even number and I really do like the number 4.

2. This week I had a patient telling a horribly racist joke and I found it to be terribly offensive. Now granted I will swear like a drunk sailor, speak of raunchy topics and not even bat an eye at sexual jokes. BUT. I draw the line.

As this idiot was babbling, laughing and trying to impress the doctor, I quietly turned around gave him a look and simply said to my self "I don't have to sit here and listen to this". So, I left the room and refused to make eye contact the rest of the visit.

It now makes me wonder what others "refuse to listen to" and I question myself now and wonder if I have ever offended someone else...

3. My rent a friend told me she thought I was in the wrong profession. She believes I rock it out as a nurse, but feels that my passion may lie somewhere else. I think she's right.

4. I have managed to take my medicine for 2 weeks without forgetting. That in it's self is a miracle. Like I said, I'm a great nurse, horrible patient.

5. Another thought from my rent a friend. My middle name should be forgiveness. I have forgiven a many of things in my short life. I often wonder if this is a sign of weakness, fragility, co-dependancy or is this a sign of being a good human.

6. Huge. Huge news. ..
I have managed to do the dishes and laundry every night. That in it's self is a miracle. What? not great news? Get real, my life is a bore, nothing exciting ever happens. I wish something did every once in awhile.

7. Often I have spoke of my want of another child. I never speak of how much pain I feel from wanting something so bad. It's there. I cry, I get over it. Then the next month comes and I cry all over again. Secretly ( I can't believe I'll share this) every so often I get so excited that "maybe" it will happen and I'll dream up all the different ways I can share my biggest hope with everyone. I do. All the time, and for those small little moments of fake happiness, dreaming it feels wonderful.

8. I have eaten a salad everyday for lunch this week. I want pizza dammit. I've gone a week without pizza. Even the smell of peperoni might me, well, never mind....

9. Another daily thought of mine... "I wonder if I can ever quit my job"

10. Snap into reality. Back to work. Tell me a random thought of yours. I enjoy them, so share. Go ahead, you can do it. All you lurkers out there...share. Let today be a day of sharing. Ok? k.

I saw the cutest little red headed boy at Sam's Club today...His name was Maxwell. He was with his great-grandparents eating a hot dog. I hope someday I can sit with my great-grandson and share lunch...(I hate hot dogs)but I love the name Maxwell..

Lisa said...

I'm eating pizza right now! Sorry. I'd share if I could.

I've actually been so stressed out and have had my eyebrows furrowed or raised so much that I actually had a muscle spasm in that small space between my eyes the other day.

Sarah said...

Two random thoughts.
1. I too cuss like a sailor.
2. I've been trying for about a year to get pregnant with my 1st child. I feel your pain. If I don't get pregnant soon I'm gonna need another cat.

Random thought..

I have a fear of hating my childs name. I am 16 wks pregnant right now and I often have a HUGE panic attack when I'm alone and having this day dream that I wake up a week or month or a few months after having my baby and absolutely hate its name. And I can't do anything about it.
Therefore I refuse to think of names! It's going to be one of those Baby E. 's until I somehow force someone to choose a name so I dont have too.

Weird huh...

Hi there, sometimes when life seems to be slightly out of alignment, smile...and the best blush is to use laughter. It puts roses in your cheeks.
By the way, can't help noticing you're an attractive lady from your profile pic.
Allow me to say, if you hold a bouquet of a dozen red roses infront of your mirror, you will see 13.
You have a nice day, and best regards, Lee.

My friend, I can not wait to share pizza with you this weekend.

I secretly can't wait to see you make that amazing announcement, too. I love you much, you know this. I am so proud of your laundry and washing dishes skills. Maybe you could move in with me and we'll eat salads together.

Random: Brian, the kids and I went out for appetizers tonight. It was fun. My bedroom is a disaster and I liked how I applied my make-up today. That's very rare for me.

iheartchocolate said...

Random thought:
I desperately long to know what another child of ours would look like. I wish I had never had my tubes tied, worst mistake I have ever made (and I have made my share).

I hate working outside the home, I feel torn constantly and cannot focus. I am at home, although I have no idea how (financially) and I know I am where I should be.

When the kids go to kindergarten, Matt wants me to work and I am terrified. I want to go to nursing school, but simply don't know if I can do it.

I just want some chocolate, is that so much to ask.

The disapproving look and comments I get from my husband when I cheat on MY diet makes me want to punch him in the face. It doesn't concern him, he should mind his own business, doncha think? Okay, now I'm mad.

Mommy Instincts said...

my random piece of information:

We got the newest yellow pages in the mail last week, and it is still sitting on the counter in it's fancy yellow bag. Shows you how often I call anyplace that might be found in the yellowpages.

And in regards into what people say that offend me:
when people tell me that my kid is going to get kicked out of school because he's not vaccinated. I will not "argue" with someone who is so ignorant to the facts.

But your amazing CE, and so much fun. I can't imagine you offending anybody!

Hope to see you soon and sorry to miss out of the Bloggy Meetup. I have our church youth group retreat that weekend. But have tons of fun for me!!!

I'm thinking of dying my hair to it's original dark color. It gets darker with every baby and I'm quite sick of the maintenance of keeping it light.

Crooked Eyebrow said...

I love all the random sharing. LOVE IT. It makes my day.

Erin said...

I'm a teacher, and I love it, but sometimes I feel the same as you in #3. I don't know quite where else my passion may be, but sometimes I find myself wondering if this is it, or if I'm supposed to be doing something else? The problem is, I don't know what the else is (aside from being a SAHM, but that's not financially an option!), so I can't exactly do anything about it, aside from hope that I'll figure it out some day.

Carrington said...

You are such a cool person. I mean, I really like you. I think all the commitments you managed to keep are awesome (i.e. eating salad every day, washing dishes and laundry every day).
Something random um... I have blue toe nails right now, and I've never had blue nails!

Ann(ie) said...

YOU are such a sweetheart. I too want another child SO badly, but I'm not sure it's in the cards. My dr. said we'll start talking about fertility treatments in three months and I am a little freaked out at that. Maybe Ben's my miracle baby? Or maybe I'm destined to have six kids and then if that happens I'm shipping you three of them. ;)

I hate odd numbers! I've found you my magical friend, might I rent you?

I used to worry about everything, but as you get older (oh, yeah, I'm going to say IT) As you get older, you find that the worry just isn't worth it. The laundry, dishes, bills to be paid etc. JOB, health, eVEryTHinG, just isn't worth it. Love your child, spend every moment doing mostly what you like. Moments are fleeting.

Now, random thought.

I sometimes floss my teeth while I'm driving home from work. WHAT? It's a long boring ride, seriously, all my friends are horrified that I do that. I don't care, good dental hygiene is important.
