Random Tuesday Thoughts - Um, it was a snake after all...

  • Last week my toddler came in to tell me he was 'scared of the snake' he said it in such a non-threatening way, and we often play pretend with the foam 'noodles' that they play with in the pool and call them snakes.... he had walked toward the garage to stand by the car and his daddy was standing right at the door watching him, when he said that he was scared of the snake we really thought he was talking about nothing major.... we live in the city.... a pretty big city at that.... but sure enough - there was a 3 foot long black snake under my husbands car!!! You can see a photo of that snake HERE!

  • Drove right through THIS last week, and it really opened my eyes to how fast your life can be changed and/or lost. The scene looked just like something off of CSI. This is our regular commute 2 x's a day, the last report was that the shooters have not been located.

  • Where's the global warming at? It's been in the 40's at my house for the past 2 days most of the evening and in the morning..... I miss the spring warmth we had a few days back! East coast weather is so unpredictable.

  • I think Danny Gokey should have been in the top two on American Idol.

  • I heart cook yourself thin on lifetime.

  • I bought SmoothAway recently, for whatever reason I was thinking that it'd be easy to remove the stubborn stray facial hair, or even the hair on the knees that always seems to be a pain to shave.... then I had a reality check - sandpaper on my skin? Doesn't even seem natural. So - I tried it on my legs, didn't work. And it was a true sign of my idiot thinking pattern when I bought it! Good thing it was only $9.99 wasted. Geez, sometimes I wonder where I put my brain?

  • My cat snores.

That's all I have.... stop by The UnMom for more!

Hmmm, been wondering about those Smooth Away things. Thanks as you just saved me $9.99!

Snakes! Snakes? They are the worst creatures around and they scare the beejeebees outta' me.

Well, let me re-phrase that: Stupid people w/guns on the freeway are the worst creatures around. Sheesh, right in the middle of the day?!

Have a great Tuesday!

I can't email you back (You should fix your blogger account! See my last RTT post, first paragraph...), so you're getting a random comment here today. :)

We homeschooled for 4 years, and it was FANTASTIC. I highly recommend it. If I didn't have to go back to work, I'd still be doing it.

I hate snakes! I live in the country and I still get surprised when I see them. I too bought the Smooth Away system. It doesn't work any better on your face, it just causes a red rashy look. Not attractive!

Yikes at the snake!

I agree with you on Danny

I bought that stupid egg thing to try to rub the hair off of my legs but it acted like a cheese grater instead.

Did you not read my review on that thing? I was all about Smooth Away and it broke my heart. In two. I then thought I'd try waxing. Also a bad idea.

I hate snakes. I always start plotting a move when I see them. Thank you for the scoop on Smooth Away. You have done a great public service and probably saved a number of us $10.
