Random Tuesday Thoughts


This seemed to fit because today's thoughts have been pretty random...

I woke up this morning and went to brush my teeth and it hurt... I have a couple of teeth that are sensitive sometimes... today they are in overdrive... they hurt all day... until I finally put a clove on the most painful one... now it feels better. I just hope this isn't the beginning of some dental issues... I have no insurance and going to the dentist is a luxury.

I would love to have a pedicure... my feet look awful and with my excess weight it's hard to comfortably reach my toes to make them pretty. Can you believe at my age I've never had a pedicure??? My fingernails could use some work too... I used to do my own nails all the time... but for some reason I quit and haven't done them in years. In short my body is falling apart. We won't even go into my hair... it has major issues.

Steffie is in bed and the house is quiet. Adrian is still at work. This is what I consider "my time" of the day.... I don't have to worry about doing anything for anybody... well unless Steffie happens to wake up.

Lil Austie will be here bright and early in the morning to spend the day. I'm not a morning person... so I hope I'm not grumpy. I also hope he doesn't put toys in the air vent this time. He's so darned cute! And it's a good thing too... I can't get too upset with his cute lil self.

Adrian is off work on Saturday... I really don't want to sit home all day again and do nothing. He's had several weekends off while he's been in management training but that will be ending... this may be his last Saturday off for awhile... and it seems like most those weekends off we've just sat home and done pretty much nothing.

Earlier I was thinking about my Grandpa and the playhouse he built me when I was about 5... when Granny sold that house I sooo wanted to get my playhouse but I couldn't afford to have someone move it for me... so now it's gone. She sold the house about 15 years ago... and my playhouse in the back yard with it. We drove by there a few years ago and my playhouse was gone.... if they only knew the memories of that lil house with the strawberry patch beside it... maybe they would have had second thoughts about tearing it down... or whatever they did with it. He worked so hard to build it for me because I was his baby girl... I remember dancing on the floor of it before he even built the walls... and I remember planting the strawberries... and picking them every summer after. Oh well... my Grandpa and my playhouse and my strawberry patch may be gone.... but I'll always have the memories.

Maybe someday Steffie can have a playhouse and a strawberry patch... or maybe that's just another random wish that will fade with time...

I really need to get all of my shows recorded off my DVR and put onto DVD... I'm running out of recording room and I have another big batch of Friday the 13th the tv series scheduled to record next week. I love that show... and SciFi shows episodes of it in big blocks just randomly so I've been recording them and then putting them on DVD... it's pretty rare to find reruns of it airing.

So that's enough randomness for one day... I'm sure tomorrow will be insane with the two kids running around getting into everything they can find... maybe they'll find some of the things that have turned up missing lately!

i have had a pedicure once and it really wasn't all that. i guess i don't feel that it is important for my feet to look pretty. i'd much rather just run around barefoot. the callouses on the bottoms of my feet, well let's just say that i could have a pedicure every day for the rest of my life and it probably wouldn't soften them up. lol! i just love being barefoot.

A Lil Enchanted said...

Me too PJ... I only wear shoes if I'm going somewhere... which isn't very often. And in the summer I wear sandals because they keep me from getting too hot (I have overheating issues)... I wish I could be like Stevie and "wear boots all summer long"... but I would get entirely too hot... I loooove boots though and wear them in the winter.

I guess being barefoot most of the time makes me want my toes to look pretty. I just feel like lately my whole body is going to pot... I haven't been able to do the usual girly maintenance things I would like to do. I'll spare you a list of things that need improvement...lol

Never had a pedicure! Honey, get thee to a good nail tech and get one that will be worth your while :)

(Okay, so I usually do my own because I can't afford to splurge on a 'professional' pedicure...)

I HATE dental issues. Hopefully it's just random yuck and you'll start feeling better. I'm not a fan of the pedicure but know people who love them!

I love Random Tuesday Thoughts....makes the "what will I write today" easier.

A Lil Enchanted said...

Exactly why I've never had one either... other things are just always more important.

My teeth are feeling a bit better today... but still a bit more sensitive than usual... maybe back to normal tomorrow.

*Bingo* with Random Tuesday Thoughts...lol... it's been a pretty boring week here.... but it's nice to have no drama :)

I need a pedicure myself, stat. I keep trying to con my DH into doing it for me ;) but I get nowhere.

It's a shame you weren't able to get the little playhouse :( I bet it was adorable!

Stacie said...

To be honest I don't think I have ever had a pedicure before. I miss having my nails done. The tree house and the strawberry patch sound wonderful! I wonder why they took it down. Have a great day.

'Cute' is the natural defense mechanism of the toddler.

It's sad that other people don't 'get' your attachment to things like that...I drive past my childhood house regularly and they've changed LOTS :(

Tell me about the clove you put on your sore tooth. I have never heard of that remedy. I also have a sporatic sore tooth and I also don't have insurance. I use exedrin & orajel when it acts up. I have never had a pedicure either. Never really had the desire for one. I do keep those toes polished though : )

Hi Jodi... you can buy cloves at the grocery store where the spices are located. You need to get whole cloves not powdered or crushed... they look like little brown pieces of sticks. Just put a piece on your aching tooth and let it sit there for awhile... the clove will numb it.

Also if you have a gum infection you can put goldenseal on it to get rid of the infection. This comes in a tincture form that you can just drop on with a dropper... or you can put it on in powdered form. This also good for other sores in the mouth. I have to warn you though it tastes horrible! It's very bitter. You can find goldenseal at herb shops.

Hope this helps!
