Haphazard Thursday

Happy Thursday folks. Again, you know that I have so many things running around in my head that I decided a "Haphazard Thursday" is necessary to tackle some random things...

A: I have lost 6 followers over the past few days? know this isn't helping reach my Dooce status and I must say that it makes me sad each time I see it. Do you think that they truly love this blog and want to start an identical one, so they think that by not following me that I won't know? Or perhaps they only followed me for the giveaways and got peeved they weren't chosen so thought that they would show me! I'm trying to make it to 300 followers and then we will do a Special Giveaway Blowout Extravanganza Crusade! :)

B: TV PHONE HOME! I am so over summer television and it is so sad how freaking excited I am for my shows to return. Perhaps this should be a true sign that I need to focus on a hobby, workout, or engage in more riveting and intellectual conversations with my husband. Maybe I will work on Mini #2's photobooks or take up serious running...or I could just watch reruns and complain for the next two months.

C: Speaking of TV, you know how I love Real Housewives... ATLANTA you are almost here! I actually dislike that one and feel that they could have done a thousand times better, but there is something about those women and their drama that just makes me laugh and thankful for my boring and poor life.

D: I appreciate all of your thoughts and suggestions about the LOSER renter. It would cost us more to take legal action than what it would be worth. The thing that makes me so stinkin' mad is the fact that they didn't even have the decency to call me and I had to find out from our neighbor friend and then there was no apology or anything. makes me mad just replaying everything in my head.

E: We have a new giveaway. Check it out here and enter today! Contest runs until next Sunday! We are thrilled to have Coyne and Pinckney as part of our family.

F: Instead of children's camp, I think we should start a Mom's Camp. You know-day without your kids, hanging with your friends, doing fun things like the movies or running in the sprinklers, meals and snack, perhaps even nap time. This could be huge...

G: Tonight, we are taking off on a 12 hour roadtrip for a weekend in PA with Mr.'s family and his mother's college friends and their families. This is just a weekend trip with two children and Mr. Molly Lou's brother and his girlfriend all trucking it together for 12 hours and one weekend. I will let you draw your own conclusions...

Have a great day!


  1. Have a great trip and be safe! That's a lot of people in one car -- take a good book :)

  2. Wow, that's a long trip for a weekend! Especially with little ones. And other people too. I am hoping for your sake that everyone loves each other very much, and that you have snacks. :)

    Don't worry about the lost followers. I started freaking out a few weeks ago because I was losing a follower a day! So crappy! But, whatever. If they can't appreciate us, it's clearly their loss, right? :)

  3. I think you're wonderful! I won't leave you :)

    As for the lack of summer tv - have you watched the Philanthropist? Mr. Potts and I love that show! It's pretty entertaining & sucks me in every week.

  4. Where do I sign up for the Mom's Camp? Especially if it includes nap...and can the snack include dark chocolate?

  5. I think Mommy camp will rake in the bucks....Actually I think most people will sign themselves up!

  6. LOL! I am loving the idea of Mom's Camp. Let's see Spa Sunday,
    Martini Monday, Tuesday Tennis, Wednesday Walking......

  7. Oh, crap on those 6 followers! We all LOVE you!!! I'm feeling you on the summer television!!!

  8. Have I told you lately how much I love you? Always such a joy to visit with you...THANK YOU...for the countless giggles you give me!

    The 6 followers you lost couldn't be that intelligent if they left and you don't want stupid people following you?!

    Where's the sign up form for camp? I'm in!! I could use a day of running through the sprinklers along with some snacks and a nice long nap.

    Have a nice road trip, hope you let us know how that went!


  9. Oh dear! The road trip sounds...brave! You're my hero!

    Although, if we're both going to be living in SC by next may have a shorter road trip in your future! To meet me! Yay! Think of how confusing our names could be when we were in person!

  10. I feel you on the TV shows. I feel pretty pathetic myself, but I just cannot wait to they return! Only a little bit longer...

  11. Mom Camp Rocks! I am away with the kids now... a vacation? this is no vacation... I still have to do dishes, laundry, cook (a little), make beds... I need a Mom Camp complete with Rest Hour and 5:00 Coctail Hour!!!

  12. I like some of my summer shows, but I am ready for the fall season to come back too.

    Don't worry about the followers, I know that you will get even more!

    It looks like you're headed to my neck of the woods. Have a safe trip and a nice time :)

  13. Don't get so hang up on the no. of followers please follow my blog! pretty pleassse...whahaha...
    ps: It's been very hot here, I'm ready for cooler weather ASAP!


  14. I always feel sad too when I followers quit following. I second guess I too dull or did I offend in some way?!

  15. Don't worry about the followers. There seem to be glitches in that app so I know some people stopped following (but they still read in google reader, etc). Or they just join when you do a giveaway ;)


How I love comments...thanks for stopping by and sharing what you are thinking. Cheers!
