Random (Talk to Us) Tuesday – 33 edition


Seriously Shawn

Dammit, Tuesday. Why do you have to be so ironic? You are usually the worst day of the week and yet, this awesome blog hop happens to fall on you. Oh, I’m so torn!

  • I’m staring to burn out on grading papers. Too bad that’s my source of extra income and I have to do it. The money is worth it.
  • I may have a ghost writing opportunity coming up and though I am sort of afraid, if it pans out, I will take it. I could potentially make a good deal of money. And the experience would be pretty awesome.
  • Sometimes I think I live too safely; don’t take enough chances. Maybe I need to just grab the bull by the horns, as they say.
  • Speaking of… today is my birthday.
  • And as always, something has come up to screw it up. There was a water main break at daycare and they had to close it down. Ash is getting the kids but everything is unfair and effed up. He stayed home with them yesterday for teacher planning day but I have SO much work to do. This is what always happens on my birthday; I think it’s a sign that I should no longer celebrate birthdays.
  • Sorry; I am just in a funk now. I never really thought I was one to worry about getting older and not having met certain goals, etc. but the more I think about it, the more emotional I get. Le sigh.
  • On the bright side – ha! – Ash did make us breakfast this morning. That was in the time before the Grand Daycare Water Breakdown of 2012.
  • Well, not much else to bitch about so I am going to grade papers and try to visit all your blogs, all before 3 PM when I have to go help my wonderful husband. Peace out like a girl scout!

Oh wait, Man Candy (smacks forehead – duh!) Zac Taylor is my model birthday gift to myself. And a happy birthday indeed!


*ETA: School reopened! Thank the Lord God above! Woot woot!

  1. Happy Birthday, Claire! Wow, that’s so cool about the ghost writer’s opportunity. I hope this pans out for you. I think we all feel like we’re a little too cautious from time-to-time. Sometimes in life,we do have to take the bull by the horns to get where we want. You’ll know precisely when to do that. I hope you have a special day!

  2. Maybe you should just pick some random day to celebrate your birthday and don’t tell anyone so no one can screw it up! Hope you salvage some of theday and manage to have a Happy Birthday anyway!

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Maybe you should start celebrating your Un-Birthday – I do that sometimes since my birthday falls 2 weeks before Christmas which sucks all by itself. So June 9th is my Un-Birthday – maybe your Un-Birthday of September 27 would fare better. It’s a thought! 🙂 Hope your day gets much better than it started out – and way cool on the potential ghost writing opportunity!!

  4. Ghost writing would be awesome! You should definitely do it. I would get burnt out on grading papers too. I hear ya on the birthdays. I feel like every year I get disappointed. I hope yours picks up and you have a great one!

  5. I would stink at being a ghost writer since I can’t even post regularly on my own blog. And I’d want to write about completely inappropriate topics. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! I’m sorry you’re having to work extra hard on your birthday. That stinks. Maybe dinner will be made or better yet–reservations will be made in your honor tonight!!

    Holy smokin’ hottie with a nice package!!! Oh LA LA!

    Thanks for always linking up with us! xoxo

  6. I’m sorry your birthday started off so rough, hopefully it improved and ended better than it started!

    Thanks you again for my daily dose of man yum!

    Thanks for linking up with us!
