RTT: What's that black stuff?

I should have done this last night instead of this morning. I am so achy and tired. *yawn*. Hopefully I won't be too cranky. Let's get this over with...
 Random, it's all about random. If this is your first time to see Random Tuesday Thoughts, you should probably come back next week when I'm less grouchy. If you yourself are grouchy, then please, pull up a lawn chair and kick back with your glass of sweet-iced tea and have a chat with us. We're going to be random. We may sound crazy, but that's normal around here.
Julie, Ane, Stacy, Cass, and Raven  are going to have some randomness on their blogs today as well. So visit them, say something random and link up with your own random blog post. 

It is week 8 of Keely's (The originator of RTT) hiatus due to work. If her new job wasn't so awesome and didn't pay money, I would go and stab it just to get her back... Just sayin'.

Anywho... random, LET'S DO THIS!
  • I'm having memory problems as of late, so re-capping how last week went up til now may be difficult. 
  • I think I painted something...no, that was the week before... scratch that.
  • OH yeah, remember Thursday when Blogger crashed? Well, I had posted the recipe for Quesadilla Casserole. It disappeared. And hasn't come back. It was a good post too. I may or may not rewrite it. It took awhile to type out all those ingredients. Maybe if enough people still want it...
  • Also last Thursday, our neighbors had a little get-together on the back patio. This is the result:
 Yes, that is a child's bicycle next to a bag of beer cans. 
  • Also Thursday, J and I went shopping at Winn-Dixie and saw some delicious cakes.
  • In case you haven't seen it, I wrote a post about it already.
  • Oh, Wednesday I made a blog for my sister. And a post about it. Have you seen It's Miller Time
  • Friday...I don't remember what we did Friday. I know J had to pack for drill that night.
  •  Also, I made pasta with meat sauce and garlic bread. I used way too much garlic salt on the bread. Apparently that's not what you're supposed to use anyway. Oops. Try not to eat anything I cook; you could die...well, only if you're a vampire. ??? 
  • Friday night right before bed, my stomach started feeling bad and I felt like vomiting. I ended up staying up all night because my stomach hurt worse when I was laying down. I finally went to bed around 4am. J had to get up at 5 to leave here and be at drill in B'ham by 7. I slept until 12:45 and didn't accomplish anything the rest of the day. Well, I take that back. I did load the dishwasher. Woo-hoo! 
  • The Lion King is coming out of the Disney vault this fall! Woo-hoo! It's my favorite Disney movie of ALL time! I'm so excited. 
  • I started reading Russell Brand's My Booky Wook: A Memoir of Sex, Drugs, and Stand-Up. I tell you what, it is really interesting. I'm trying to read it with an accent that sound somewhat like his. {I do that, you know. Read in accents in my head.} But, it's really difficult. He's pretty wacky. 
  • Sunday, I went crazy. I felt a lot better and had that antsy, I-gotta-do-something feeling. So, I swept and swiffer-mopped the kitchen, cleaned up the living room and set out new coffee table decorations. Then, I rearranged the bedroom all by myself, did some laundry and took a shower. I know, I know...I'm awesome. The bedroom looks a lot better this way and J has more room on his side of the bed and amazingly, so do I. I'll take a picture and post it later.
  • I also hung the curtain rod all by myself. That involved power tools! I told y'all to start calling me Suzy Homemaker! I also baked some chocolate muffins for breakfast Sunday! 
  • Sunday evening, J came home and we went out for some McD's. When we got back, we started watching True Grit {the original with John Wayne}. Then, our neighbor Janel came over and told us that the apartment manager had just called her and told her that there had been a few break-ins! Apparently, a couple of young guys had busted in a door and window of an apartment on the street over, tried to break into the house next door's shed, and tried to break into a few of the storage units! They also tried to steal a truck's muffler thingy, but only managed to pull it halfway off before someone noticed them.
  • Needless to say, I didn't sleep well at all Sunday night. I stayed up until it was almost time for J to get up. Then, I crashed. J ended up being 30 minutes late for work because he turned off his alarm at 6 and went back to sleep. He said I woke him up at 7:07 and told him to go to work. LOL. What? I need my sleep and he was hogging the bed. 
  • Oh yeah, Friday night I also had to wash the kitchen rugs. Sabrina had gotten underfoot while I was cooking and I tripped over her and bumped the handle of the pan that was cooking the meat. The spoon fell out and raw meat got all over the kitchen rugs. I didn't think about the colors of the rugs and the red one bled onto the beige one. So now I have a pink rug. Ugh.
  • I think I now know why Monday is named so. It's Moan-day. I was so sore "Moan"-day after moving the bedroom around by myself, that I could hardly move.
  • I went with my neighbor, Janel to the thrift store yesterday and saw this beauty:
So ugly.
  • I had to clean out the pantry this weekend to make room for all the chips we bought Thursday. I guess we just had the chip munchies or something.
Nevermind the rest of the junk please. 
  • I went to get something to drink yesterday, out of the fridge. This is what I encountered:
Why can he never just take the empty tea jug out?
  • I find the weirdest things at the Dollar Tree. A few weeks ago, I found Mudoku detox foot pads. You put them on the bottom of your feet and they're supposed to suck out all the toxins and metals that are in your body. I thought, what the hey, they're only a buck! Saturday night, I tried them out. You will never believe what happened. I took photos as evidence:
Left foot and pad, right foot, right foot pad.
Nasty huh?
  • I recommend if you use these things, wear socks over them. You have to wear them all night for them to work properly and I didn't want to get anything on the sheets. Good thing I wore the socks too; the inside of them were black and sticky in the morning!
  • Remember last Tuesday it was a million degrees outside? Well, this week it's cold. Seriously. The high today is only supposed to be 66°F! What the fuzzy sock happened?
Well, I think this post is long enough. I don't think I left anything random out. Hopefully I wasn't too grouchy. If you want to link up, be sure to enter your name and the URL to your post, in Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post. :) Please come back next Tuesday for more randomness! {Or later this week... either way.}

          I actually like the pink rug!!!! J always leaves the empty jug on the shelf, lol, even here. I love you & hope you are less grouchy in the future.

          I think you should get some more of those "detox" pads; Just stick them all over your body. Clearly, grouchiness is a sign of your being toxic. Hahahaha
          I'm so funny.

          Love, ~Mom

          Heh. "It's Miller Time" also looks like it matches up with those cans in the bag. I don't think you were grouchy. You worked the hell out of the random though. LOVED IT!

          Kristine said...

          I will so wait for the Quesadilla Casserole. Some things are just worth waiting for! ;-)

          Stacy Uncorked said...

          You got WAY more done over the last week than I did! I'm impressed! You can come help me move furniture any day. ;)

          That looks like some serious partying went over at your neighbor's house!

          My hubby leaves empty containers in the fridge, too - but even more annoying is the random soda cans at varying levels of fullness left all over...I think he forgets where he sets his down and just gets a new one...only to set it down and forget where. We call him the Absent Minded Professor for a reason! ;)

          I have always wanted to try and use these. Do you feel different after using them,

          Jaybee said...

          lol now I want to try some of those detox pads. I wonder if our $ tree has them.
