Miscellaneous Monday - Random Thoughts

~ All last week, I truly savored the notion that I'd get an extra hour of sleep yesterday due to the time change.  But, as luck would have it, I found myself wide awake at 5:30am.  

~ I had two wonderfully blissful weeks off back in October, but (and I know how bad this is going to sound) I could really use a day off now.  For the past two weeks, I've been running around like a chicken with its head chopped off tying up loose ends at my old school, packing up all my personal belongings and moving it to my house, trying to get acclimated at my new school, and then moving my stuff there one painfully small carload at a time.  I'm exhausted and my poor house is a wreck. 

~ Because I was wide awake in the week small hours Sunday morning, I found myself perusing Facebook and I came across this meme:

First, I got tickled because the FB friend who commented on this (hence the entire reason it showed up in my feed to begin with) is a man.

Second, I got even more tickled when I started thinking about the last show I watched and who my birthing team would be:

Yep, the dysfunctional Gallaghers from Shameless, whom I had watched a rerun of the night before.  Lord help me if this situation ever came to pass (me being pregnant and them being my birthing team)!  As for who would catch the baby, I picked Veronica, the Gallagher's sassy, next door neighbor.

She, after all, was the one who helped deliver Debbie's baby on the kitchen table...  LOL!

~ Friday evening, I ate one of those Pull-N-Peel Twizzlers.  After swallowing, I realized that more of the sticky, gooey substance was remaining behind in my lower molars.  After clearing it with my tongue, I felt an open space that wasn't there before! That damned candy pulled off a dental crown and I inadvertently swallowed it!

So, tomorrow morning, I have an appointment with my dentist to get a temporary crown.  I've been examining my...  excrement for the past two days looking for any signs of the expensive dental work piece, but no luck.  Granted, I was  only willing to look from a far and not dissect the stuff, but still, I haven't seen any sign of it yet.  

I guess I have literally flushed several hundred dollars down the toilet.

~ I have discovered, much to my dismay, that I get absolutely no cell service in my new school.  And when I say no cell service, I mean none.  Zip.  Zero.  Nada.  Niete.  Nothing.  NONE.  It's a very weird feeling to be cut off from the outside world.  At least the WiFi works, although the sites I can access are extremely limited.

I hope this finds you having a great day and beginning to the work week!  As always, thanks for stopping by!


  1. Keep taking the new job slow it will all come together. Oh my birthing team would be the new MacGyver lol

    1. I've never seen MacGyver, the old or new one, but wasn't MacGyver pretty handy and resourceful? He/they might actually make a good birthing team!

  2. LOL @ the thought of the Gallaghers as a delivery team.

  3. I had very spotty service at two of my four (?) schools. Ugh.

    Omg the Gallaghers...I'm so excited Shameless is back.

    1. It's a very weird sensation of having no service at my school. It's highly annoying, yet liberating at the same time. LOL!

      Hey, do you ever wonder if Jimmy-Steve one day might return to Shameless?
