Monday's Random Musings

Mrs. Nurse Boy here.

Ready for some randomness?

**We barely survived the chaos of last week. After many late nights, sore throats, runny noses, and lots of tears I can honestly say I am ready to tackle a new week. And, since I was battling some major PMS all last week and self medicating with lots of chocolate, you can bet that was me with the tears. Lots of them. Poor Nurse Boy. No wonder he doesn't want to pay for all of my waxing. Maybe he wants to apply that money to some other professional help for me. I can really be a bear at times. But, thankfully, not a hairy bear!

**It is my opinion that if you leave your Christmas lights up on your house ALL YEAR LONG, you should at least turn them on during the Christmas season. If I have to look at your lifeless icicle lights in 100 degree heat, you can at least light up the cold, dark nights with them during the winter.

**Whose idea was it to randomly wrap Christmas lights around the trunk of a tree? Don't get me wrong, I am all about the net lights you can throw on your bushes. Those are easy to put up in the bitter cold. They are even easier to take down in the bitter cold. But, to just wrap a string of lights around a tree trunk and call them Christmas lights is something I just don't get.

**Why do I always stress about our Christmas cards? Why? I always spend too much time on them and am disappointed with the end result. This year I am stamping 80 of them. I think I have a screw loose.

**Do you know how many housewives it takes to change a light bulb? Me neither. I think it is starting to drive my kids crazy that somethings in my house just have to wait until Dad comes home. Light bulbs and batteries are on my list. Not for any real reason. Just lazy, I guess. It gives Nurse Boy something to look forward to when he comes home.

**I am thinking about taking Nurse Boy to the salon for some eyebrow waxing. I am smiling just typing this. I am totally serious. I want him to experience what I go through. I have seen some men getting their brows waxed. He won't die. But, I do promise to bring the camera...to post pictures later! Later on we could work on highlights, low lights, and some spiky hair. I would love to watch him squirm in front of Stacey and Clint on What Not to Wear. We could toss those hoodies for good!

Time to get to back work on the Christmas cards...

MotH let me wax his "Bert" (as in Bert and Ernie) one time.


I, uh, made him bleed. Not because of my waxing technique. No, that I had down pretty well from self-waxing my own unwanted hair. So in my defense I will simply say that there is bound to be some blood when you remove a pelt that size.

Oh, and remind Nurse Boy that a good eyebrow wax is like a mini facelift........only a lot cheaper!

(And pass the name of your salon on to me. I wasn't happy with the last gal that did my highs and lows.)

I just love Chocolate Hang Over Mondays @@. Hope this is a really great week.

You two are so funny. you remind me of my sister-in-law and her hubby, two of my favorite people.

I've seriously considered nominating my better half for the show because the man needs a new suit. I can't even imagine what they'd do to his hair, though. He's had the same cut as long as I've known him.

I never thought about Christmas cards until I fell in with "you people." Now, NOW, they stress me out. Thanks. Thanks a lot.

Last paragraph. All I can say is "Run, Nurse Boy, Run!"
