10 Thought Tuesday ~ Crazy Stupid Emotions & Rant ~

For the most part I am a sane ordinary human bean.

Today is not a day which I am channelling that energy.

I'm going to blame the diet hot cocoa.

1.  Stupid emotions.  It's one of those days where I start crying over the commercials on tv.  I have a memory and my eyes start welling up.  Yeah, sure is great to be a woman.  *eyeroll*

2.  I wish people could just get along.  I wish people were people and treated as such without any preferential expectations.

3.  Why is it so important that I know everyone's sexual orientation?  I don't want to know whether you are straight, gay or from Mars.  Seriously.  You are a person.  I don't need to know the rest.  Do you care that I'm a straight married 40 year old who just celebrated her 20th anniversary?  For some reason it's not as socially acceptable at the moment.

4.  I wish people could just say what they want.  I mean be honest.  I don't want a bunch of excuses or made up scenario's.  I want you to say yes or no and we'll both go on with our lives.  It makes me crazy and is a total waste of my time and emotions.

5.  I am most upset with the amount of Christmas cards I received.  The majority of cards I received were from online friends.  Do people just stay in contact other ways or are they too busy to send cards or is it that they just can't be bothered.  My Christmas card holder used to be full and I'd be searching for spots for more cards.....this year.....I had to spread the cards out to make it look fuller.

6.  I love my life with Hubby and Puppy in our city in our own little bungalow....and yes, I even value Renter Person.  This is my city and my beautiful life and I'd never trade it for anything else.  What sucks is when you suddenly need to rely on someone for a favour and they beat around the bush.

7.  Brandy went to the groomer on Saturday.  Her ears are appearing much better with the shorter do.  I also changed treats.  There is still "stuff" in her ears but it's not yeasty looking.  I think I'm on to something with this grain free thing.  She's on her last pail of dog food so this weekend I'll buy something grain free and test out the theory farther.

8.  Hubby and I want to plan another trip to NYC.  It all depends on a dog sitter.  That's what most of this list consists of.....waiting for an answer and beating around the bush with excuses that don't mean anything.

9.  I bought new headphones on the weekend.  They are green with peace signs on them.  My ear buds were making my ears hurt.

10.  The other day it was -30*C overnight and daily highs were -22*C.  Today the high is +3*C.  There is water dripping off the house.  This will mean tonight the roads are going to be BAD.  Don't worry, I am a careful driver.


  1. 1) yeah.
    2) I hear that.
    3) yup.
    4) Absolutely. - a "no" is easier to plan around than a "oh well now I don't know"
    5)I don't send cards and receive very few... most people know I just don't appreciate them.
    6) I hate very little more than having to ask for a favour.
    7) yes. I think so too.
    8)She can stay with Sophie and me if you want to drop her off - we're right on your way.
    9)I have ear buds and am looking at headphones too.. let me know how they work out.
    10) I'm glad ten is at the bottom and I don't have to scroll up to remind myself what it says.

    1. My Mom provides so many excuses you forgot what you asked for in the first place. It's exhausting.
      I never ask favours. Never.
      Brandy gets anxiety. She needs to stay at home or somewhere familiar. But thanks for the offer. I'm sure Brandy and Sophie would be bff's.
      These headphones were cheapies. I bought them at a discount store for $12.98. They work well enough for what I need.
      The xmas cards have been dwindling. I get that some, like you,, just don't want to send them. That's fine...but what about the people who always send them and then suddenly stop?

  2. *sneaks in*

    *chats with Brandy*

    *sneaks out*

    1. *Brandy gains access to blog.*

      *Brandy leaves pile of mini milkbones*

  3. Ear buds hurt my ears, too. And most headphones (and earmuffs) I've tried also hurt my outer ears. I just can't win.

    Good luck with Brandy's new food!

    1. I think we're going to try the Blue Buffalo brand since it's something we've never tried before.

  4. I get really mad at stuff like that too Sandra. Maybe Brandy wouldn't stress if she was with Sunny. In fact I bet Brandy wouldn't. They would be way too busy and driving Miki nuts. LOL

    1. Brandy has a good memory. It's crazy but true. She knows where she's going in the car. When we are within 4 blocks of my parents she starts getting excited. She also knows familiar things close to home. What happens is she pants...and since she had all those breathing issues a year ago...it's important that she stays calm. I'm sure she'd be great friends with Sunny and would show him all sorts of naughty things!

  5. Happy almost Friday! I have been bad about checking on other's blogs. Shame on me. Hugs to you!

    1. Yes. Shame on you! lol
      It's all good. It all worked out in the end. Mom and Dad never said yes to dog sitting...but at the same time it appears we may not be returning to NYC after all. It doesn't seem to be in the plans for us this year.
      All cannoli dreams are dashed.

  6. Some people make asking a favor so painful. I really hate that in a person.
