Random Tuesday – Early wake-up call, simplifying things

Stacy Uncorked


  • Today’s one of those days where things got off to a very weird start. Two of my kids woke up around 5:30 for different reasons and then woke me up – a mere 20 minutes before my alarm went off. UGH.
  • Then my husband forgot to put the toilet seat up so when I went in, I realized he’d peed all over it. Granted, he was half asleep but STILL.
  • But I ended up getting up early and having my coffee, getting organized. So I can’t complain too much. The weather is nice and I’m getting work done.
  • On Sunday, someone said “happy October!” cheerfully to me and for a little while, I thought they were crazy because it was clearly still September. Ha ha, joke’s on me: it was indeed the first.
  • I felt very emotional today about it being October. Like, wth? How is it already the tenth month? I felt tears threatening to blur my eyes; it was a weird sort of sadness at the same time, I was thinking about how we have a quick vacation coming up and some other fun things planned. Ever just feel weird like that?
  • Yesterday was the most insanely busy day at work in a long time and I feel sort of off today because I finished a big project. I have another to begin but the in-between time is super weird.
  • I need to find a project or something to get into because I think my mental health is waning. The media dividing our country is really driving me up a wall right now. Maybe what I should do is just cut out more social media aspects. When I reloaded my phone last night, I decided not even to install facebook. I really think my life will be a lot better without it at my fingertips.
  • Also, R.I.P. Tom Petty.
  • That’s it for now! See y’all tomorrow.

  1. The media feed off of ratings, and making people tear at each other drives up ratings. It’s so sad.

    Taking a break from social media, or limiting it to once a day for a short amount of time, is an excellent idea.

    Hope you come up with a project to keep things on an even keel.

  2. Ohhhh! Getting woken up 20 minutes before the alarm by anything or anyone is always a point of contention for me! 🙂

    Whaaaaaat?!! OK, that takes the cake – I’ve heard of guys leaving the toilet seat up (and had my fair share of a freezing behind dunk because of it), but forgetting to put the toilet seat up from the get go? Whoa!! Now I’ve heard it all!!

    You are not alone – I’ve had those moments where I’m sad because time is flying by way too fast! I’m still grappling with the fact it’s already October, and here we are already through the first whole week! Make it stop!! 🙂

    Thanks for being so dedicated to the random, even while I’m the worst hostess of them all! I’m working on being better. While I don’t do New Year resolutions, maybe this will be one I can be successful at! 😉 Have a great night!
