Random Tuesday – Skimming under the surface edition

I still feel relatively lost lately. Like I’m not quite cognizant of what is going on around me. Sigh. Maybe after that good night’s sleep I had, I can get it together. Oh, and after my weekly spew o’ random thanks to Stacy.


  • So I’ve been grinding my teeth at night because of this sore thing on my gum. In the same evening, both Iggy and Isaac managed to flail into my face and hit the same spot on my lower canine tooth. It became this irritating thing that hurt so my mouth decided to grind my teeth, leading to horrible headaches and neck pain.
  • I ate a sausage from this country store yesterday, knowing full well I’d regret it later. I was… totally right about that. Luckily, me and Tums became quite acquainted during pregnancy and I had a lot left over.
  • I have to speak in front of about 35 people today and though I do it every summer, it still makes me slightly nervous.
  • You know what we’ve been dominating lately? Raspberries. I can’t seem to get enough of them.
  • I put raspberries in that Jell-O, as previously mentioned, and now all Elliot wants to eat is said Jell-O.
  • I wasn’t going to mention it but I got a raise! Sure, it’s only 5% and since we’re getting a 3% cut on the first it’s more like 2% but hey, it’s something and it’s even more awesome to get that little nod from the higher-ups. Like, yeah, we see what you’re doing and appreciate it.
  • I am not good with numbers but if the raise gives me even 15 bucks more per paycheck, I am totally taking a hot yoga class. That or the easier, slower flow class.
  • I haven’t taken a yoga class since I was pregnant.
  • I’m gonna be the person with the spare tire but oh well; it’s still baby weight.
  • That’s all I can muster this morning; I’m sure you understand.

Man Candy. Well, I have no info on this guy other than I found him on some modeling site and his eyes are so sexy and smoldering, I couldn’t resist. This is Jacob Krecioch. Enjoy!

  1. It’s been blueberries here. They make me bake. So we have had Blueberry muffins and blueberry coffee cake. and I have more in the fridge. Now what to do with them?

  2. You just made my day. I got a raise (5% just like you!) last week and was sort of put out. PB got a promotion on the same day, and it sort of took the wind right out of my sails. But, you’re right. 5% is really pretty nice, in the end. And my boss did have a lot of swell things to say.

    Tooth yuck! Try ambisol. It will take the pain away and keep your tongue off it. And when your jaw aches, try limeaid. My doctor recommended it to me, and it helps a bit (not a cure, but when your neck and head ache, anything that helps a bit feels better!)

  3. Yay on that raise, but nay on that horrible tooth-mouth-thing!

    There’s a package of raspberries in the fridge right now, but those aren’t really my scene. Strawberries, on the other hand…

  4. We’re on a watermelon kick here. We’re also really into frozen strawberry lemonade made in the blender. I hope the sore in your mouth goes away. That sounds miserable.

    And congrats on the raise!!!!!! Any amount is awesome!
