Random Tuesday Thoughts - Another Birthday

Welcome to Random Tuesday Thoughts.  If you'd like to play along, link up at Stacy Uncorked.

Another year, another birthday.  I turned 36 on the 13th.  Hubby took me out to eat at Steak 'n Shake on the day of and hosted a small birthday party at my home on Saturday.  A few presents I got were Ferrero Rocher chocolates, bath and body products, a hoodie with the church logo on it, a Yankee candle, and tumblers.

My thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by the massacre in CT.  It is an unfathomable nightmare.  I understand the need for change but I wish people were more concerned with supporting the people involved rather than debate politics regarding coulda, shoulda, woulda's.

I'm thiiiis close to going to a doctor for a checkup.  I see a doctor so infrequently that I don't even have a regular.  I'm not necessarily ill but I'm extremely fatigued all the time.  I think weather has something to do with it but I could sleep 15 hours a day if given the chance.  All I want to do is sleep, sleep, sleep.  And it's not out of boredom or lack of sleep. 

I received the camera that I won a week ago in a giveaway.  It's definitely fancier than the ones I'm used to.  I've been spending time trying to figure out all the buttons and what-nots on it.


My great-niece, Imani, celebrated her 6th birthday over the weekend.  She believes she is "Batgirl" reincarnate and has the mask to prove it. 
My husband is one of the friendliest guys you'll ever meet.  He can go in a stranger and come out a best friend.  That's super great, except I want to make it clear he's not Dear Abby.  He should not be the one you want to go to when you're of the opposite sex and need someone to talk to.  I get it, he listens.  I get it, he's easy to talk to.  But there comes a time when his problems are not your problems.  Last month there was a big fiasco where there was talk of him sleeping with Sweet Sally down the alley.  Last night he got Facebook slammed because he didn't want to go down the same road and refused a female friend's "I need to call you and talk" advances. 

You won't see my picture by "gullible" in the dictionary.  I know men can sometimes be pigs and they don't always think with the right brain.  However, I can say with most certainty that my husband isn't steering off the marital course.  It's just irritating that people you think are friends and you know have your number won't ring you up when they need to talk but they will most assuredly try to get my husband involved in their muck. 
Emma's 5th grade choir/band concert was last night.  If you ever hear a beginner band play, you know what I mean when I say "tone deaf".  You could tell they put their heart and soul into it though.  During the end of the performance there was a surprise.  Each student got to choose a "special person" to go on stage with them and play the instruments.  Emma chose her dad, Jason.  After listening to him play, I'm pretty sure he should stick to his day job.
Happy RTT!

I've always been the type of person that could sleep 15 hours a day easy. I am perpetually tired and having kids was a definite set back for me in that area, but I figure I'll catch up someday.....

Happy belated Birthday! My bday was Friday,but I'm a few years older than you. I aint telling you. You'll have to scrounch around on my blog to see if you can figure that one out. lol

When will men and women realize it is not.a.good.idea to enlist constant emotional help from the opposite sex? It makes no different, if you trust your spouse or not. It's just not a good idea.

That's cool you got a camera in a giveaway. Best of luck in learning how the buttons work.

Once upon a time, I was in a beginner band in grade 5 and I recall how horrible we sounded. All I can say now is, our band teacher sure must have loved his job. =D

Thanks for randomizing with us on Random Tuesday Thoughts!

Happy Birthday and that's a sweet camera! We're talking about getting one but I'm so lazy I just use my phone. Check your thyroid, mine is messed up and I'm the same way with my sleep. I'm an insomniac so I take meds to fall asleep (and when I wake up in the middle of the night I have to take them AGAIN) but I'm so worn I barely want to get out of bed and I haven't been able to work out lately. It's not because of the meds, I've been on them for over a decade, it's my thyroid. The bad part is that it's bad but not bad enough to treat so I just have to battle on through and hope it takes care of itself! Feel better!
