The most random 5 on Friday ever.

I was seriously sitting here with all of these ideas in my head about what I wanted to write, and then I got distracted. I think I started looking at Pinterest, and then moved onto Buzzfeed. Anyway, when I came back to the blogger screen, every single idea I had was gone.

So... I sat here looking at a blank "page" for about 5 minutes and then just decided to start writing.... with no direction and see where it took me. So here's what I am literally thinking, right now. No preplanned bullet points & no photos.

1. Juan Pablo is probably the worst Bachelor EVER. Who else is watching The Bachelor? UGH. I just want to reach through the computer screen and slap him silly. Okay, wait. Him an Ben tie for the worst Bachelor status. L-A-M-E. (yes... as I was sitting there, that is exactly what popped into my head).

2. But moving on. I am having a hard time giving up Coke. The soft drink... not the drug, obviously. No but really, I have started this whole exercise thing, and I've been doing really really good (a post about this later), but I'm having the hardest time changing my diet. I just love my Coca Cola way too much. And carbs. Bleh. Baby steps, right?

3. I HATE doing dishes so much. I would rather clean the toilets than do dishes. I've actually considered just buying all paper utensils so I can just discard the "dishes" when I'm done, rather than having to wash them. I'm sorta ridiculous, I know.

4. Our taxes are done!! Isn't it such a relief when you get your taxes filed?? Mine are especially a pain because since I own a photography business, I have to file State B&O taxes and then also claim everything again on our Federal Taxes. And if you own a small business, you know how much the government takes from you and it's kind of insane and depressing. So basically I always dread doing them. But now that they're done -- I just feel like I have a huge weight off my shoulders.

5. So we are forecasted to get some snow this weekend! I know that by now, most of the country is despising the cold weather and the snow. But here in Seattle... we hardly ever get snow. Granted, it's been pretty cold (for WA, anyway), but if it's going to be in the 20's, I'd like at least a few inches of snow to back it up. I mean come on!!! I have 2 little boys that I want to take out and make snow angles with. So East Coast, send some of that white stuff over to the west coast, k?

If you actually read this random, pointless brain dump, let's be BFF's.

I will GLADLY send you all the snow. I don't want it anymore!

And for the record, "brain dump" posts are kind of my favorite.

tarafromtexas said...

Texas will gladly send it your way, lovely! Ready for Spring over here! :) And I feel your pain towards the prospect of dish washing. Mine typically only get done when company is coming.

jen said...

You can have some of our snow as well. We are forecasted for another 2-4 inches tomorrow, plus an inch or so tonight. All I can say is this Spring better be green and gorgeous. OVER. IT.

MommyMandy Musings said...

You can have all the snow you want from Jersey...I haven't seen my grass since Christmas! Hope you get a few flakes and we get a break from it:)

Bailey L. said...

I agree with JP being the worst bachelor ever.... he is awful! I don't even sit down to watch the whole show like I used to, I cant stand it but it makes Monday's a little better :) We don't have much snow but I'll send our -30 to -40 degree (wind chill) weather that way ;) Its not fun, I don't wish it upon anyone! Spring better be on its way! :)

Andrea Becher said...

Juan Pablo is totally the worst! And yet, I still watch...oh the bachelor addiction. Hope you get your snow.

Julia Anderson said...

OMG, I am a carb lover too! I try and eat well but my body craves carbs. I try to pick better ones (if that's possible) but I know it doesn't help in trying to lose these last 7 pounds of baby weight. I think I need carb eaters anonymous!

Jennifer said...

I am a Coke drinker and Im not sure I will/can ever stop.

Discovery Street said...

i haven't watched the bachelor in years, but I am this season...yeah...he's pretty machismo.

Lauren said...

I cant stand Juan Pablo. Like dislike him so much, I have stopped watching this season. He's gross and terrible.

Valerie Scott said...

You can have all the snow you want, we just got 8 inches two days ago on top of a few inches that were still left on the ground from the last snow. We are about sick of it and the freezing cold. I am a serious Cherry Coke drinker, not sure that I could give it up. And YAY!!! for getting your taxes done. It is a major relief to have them done, doing mine hopefully this weekend. Happy Friday Mandy:)

Courtney said...

I read it! Guess we're BFF's now :)

JP is the absolute worst. Just, terrible. I find myself audibly groaning and cringing multiple times per episode. I don't get all the face touching, pretending to not understand English, and the worst...the tongue. His kissing makes me want to vom all over. Serious.

We've got our taxes sent off so hopefully they'll be done soon! That will be a huge relief.

Happy Friday, woman :)

Katie Perdue said...

Apparently we should be BFF's. And I totally agree on the Juan Pablo things. I still can't figure out why in the world I watch this guy week to week, He's a total player, and I can't stand how he pulls the daughter card when its convenient for him! Anywho, Happy Friday!

mamaboot said...

Totally agree on the snow....I'm hoping it actually snows tomorrow like it's supposedly supposed to. I'll believe it when I see it! :)

Rebecca said...

I am the HUGEST bachelor/bachelorette fan, but haven't even watched this season due to all of the shared sentiments similar to yours! Also, Staring at the computer for five minutes trying to remember your previous thought or trying to conjure a new thought.... that happens to me ALL the time.

Marie Luciano said...

I just wrote a post about clean and it drives me crazy I wish it would just always stay clean, ya know? I can't wait to get our taxes done and hopefully it will be in our favor. enjoy your weekend!

The girls said...

BFFs all the way now! :) To eat better, I found that it was easier if I brought my caloric intake down to where it should be. Then after a few weeks of that (and once my body's over the shock), I started slowly changing the diet. No pressure that way.

And good luck on the coke issue. My vice is Dr Pepper, and I just can't quit. I want to, so badly. We just found out we're pregnant after three years of infertility, now I'm doubly determined to get off the juice. But I'm failing, because it's just SO HARD.

Whitney H said...

I'm a Coke addict too! (obvs not the drug, lol) I'm jealous that you're done with your taxes. We need to do ours and get it over with!

Rj and Jessie said...

I can't stop drinking Coke either. :/

Alessandra Ferguson said...

I'm with you on the coke thing, except mine is Dr. Pepper. I'm trying to get better into working out, and do my best eating better,but I don't want to give up my dr pepper. But I finally ran out at home and decided not to buy anymore. I can only get one if like we go out to eat or something. Baby steps. It helps knowing that I can still have one, sometimes, just not everyday. :)

Amanda Dement said...

Yep. Juan Pablo sucks. He is annoying and not the least bit attractive. He seems to act very immature. I am ready for his season to be over....can we just go back to Sean please?!

Jennifer Pilgrim said...

Brain dump is now my new favorite term! :)

Laura @ The Everyday Joys said...

Ohhhhhhhh, Juan Pablo. Thatisall.

Aukele Cockett-Askew said...

I am the opposite.. It is easier for me to get my diet on track than to exercise :(

Leah D said...

I'm a little bored with JP and I read Reality Steve, so now I'm more bored. I hate dishes, too and our taxes are done as well!! Woohoo!

AiringMyDirtyLaundry said...

Dishes do stink! I hate them. And laundry.

We finished our taxes too. And I love my Diet Coke and I'm not sure if I could ever give it up. Good luck with your Coke!

Mommyof3 said...

I am watching The Bachelor as I am sitting here typing this, and I happened upon your cute blog post because I literally typed the words, "Ugh Worst Bachelor Ever." Apparently we aren't alone, because there are a zillion similar listings! :) I am almost gagging at every interaction this guy has with the women (why are these women not packing their bags of their own volition?!) Anyway, I couldn't agree more with all of your points, and as a mommy of 3 little ones, the dishes are ENDLESS... Good luck, hon!! :)

Fran said...

I'm was a coke addict too! I used to drink it SO much. Then one day I gave up soda cold turkey and it was honestly the best thing I could do. Trying to wean myself just wasn't working lol

Lois Alter Mark said...

I will never give up my Diet Coke, and totally admire you for getting off the Coke. My taxes will probably not be done until April 15, so I'm admiring you for that too!

Sometimes you just need to write down some of those random thoughts so they're out of your brain--at least I do!
