Random Thoughts

Sitting here at work, I think of random things. Here are some of my ponderings for the day:

1--Isn't it strange how certain songs bring back old memories and remind you of certain people??? I hear this one song at least once a week, and it makes me think back to about 6 years ago, and I would almost swear it's a "sign" to get in touch with the person the song remind me of, just to see how things are going.

2--Who in the world names their kid after a cereal, and then they go on to be a professional athelete? Apparently someone does: Coco Crisp

3--Do you carry on a conversation with others who are in the restroom at the same time as you? I'm sorry, but I just find it awkward to carry on a conversation while performing bodily functions, and without being able to see the person I'm talking to (though I suppose I do this when talking on the phone/internet, but still).

Giveaway time!

It's time for the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival, and I wanted to offer a giveaway on my personal blog in addition to the one already on my business blog.

1--Open to anyone, anywhere.....you do NOT have to have a blog of your own. Just be sure to provide a valid email address as this is how I will contact the winner.
2--Comments will close at 3pm EST on Friday, Aug 1. Winner will be announced on Friday, Aug 1, by 10pm EST. I will use random.org to choose a random # for me. Winner will have until 7pm EST Sunday, Aug 3 to get me their address for mailing. If no response, I will choose another winner.
3--Post a comment here telling me your favorite store to save money at, and how you do so.

What you'll win:
An assortment of 50+ coupons (not expired). I will try to include coupons for items that you use regularly, which you will be responsible for telling me once I contact you as the winner. If you don't include anything, than I will just send a potluck of anything.

Doesn't take much

Apparently it doesn't take much at all to impress my 2.5 year old son. One night last week for dinner, I cooked breakfast (scraple, bacon, eggs & hubby did the french toast). When Lucas was eating his scraple, he looked at me and said "Mommy, you did good. It's yummy. Good job!" I couldn't help but chuckle. However, for those who don't know me, cooking isn't my forte by ANY means (I've been known to burn tea bags--more than once--by boiling the water completely out of them because I put them on & get doing something else & forget about what I was doing to begin with), which is what made it so funny.

Lazy Sunday

Our Sunday ritual is pretty much the same each week....get up, play w/ the kids, go to dinner at hubby's grandmother's house, come home & nap....Well, today, everyone is napping but me, and I'm enjoying the silence in the house....it's dark here, there's thunder rumbling outside, there's a storm coming. I'm not a big fan of thunder storms (thanks, Mom), but today for some reason, I'm finding it relaxing, almost theraputic. After I get done posting this, I'm going to close the computer & lay here on the bed & listen to it pass by, hoping it doesn't wake Lucas...wait, I think I hear him stirring....so much for relaxing I guess.

Welcome to my blog!

After much contemplation, I decided to separate my business & personal blogs. This is my personal blog. If you are trying to find my doula business blog, go here, or my business website, here.

On here you will find random posts, about life in general, my kids, work, etc. Not sure how often I'll post, but I promise I'll make a conscious effort to try to do it at least once a week.
