Toothbrush

Yep, it appears I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel with this blog. I won't even try to convince you that I actually have things I could be doing now instead of sitting here writing about my toothbrush, but I get the feeling that you won't believe me so I'll let it go.

I own one of the most expensive types of toothbrushes you can buy. It's a Sonicare and they run over $100 unless you get lucky like I did and get a sale where they were selling a two-fer pack for $100 even.

A short answer to the question I just know is running through your head, "Why did she buy two toothbrushes for $100 even if it WAS a good sale?"....because I am OBSESSED with the health of my teeth. That's why, now on to the point of this blog....yep there is a point...keep reading and you'll get there...

My bathroom is wired all funky. YES this has to do with my toothbrush. The only way the one outlet works in my bathroom is when the light switch is turned ON. Since Christmas, the only way I've had to charge my Sonicare toothbrush is to leave the bathroom light on for a few hours every week.

Out of the blue today I caught a wave of GENIUS. I decided that buying light bulbs for my bathroom more often than any other room in my house is insane so I convinced myself that charging my toothbrush in ANOTHER room with NORMAL outlets would be better.

So I happily took my Sonicare out of the bathroom and plopped it and the base on my nightstand next to my bed. It's now charging in my bedroom sans light!! WOOOOOT!

DISCLAIMER: That was the climax of this entry. Anything I say at this point is mere junk and useless.

Anyways, I'm very excited that I've found a better way to charge my toothbrush. I really need a life. It's gone to desperate measures here. If anyone needs a life worse than me, I won't believe it.

Add me to the "Life Transplant List" ASAP before it gets worse, like getting excited when I don't find not one "old maid" in my bag of microwave popcorn....wait...I've already done that before......dammit!!

Priceless


1. Busch beer in cans is not cool. Any beer in cans is not cool.

2. Finding out that the very thing you were obsessing and worrying about for months is nothing to obsess and worry about is a GREAT feeling.

3. Communicating with someone you have not spoken to in a while is refreshing and rejuvenating.

4. Not being depressed for the first time in a long time feels awesome.

5. Having excruciating PMS cramps....not so awesome.

6. Keeping with all of your "better living through healthy choices" resolutions for a whole week makes me feel healthy and better.

7. Seeing your favorite NFL team lose to a bunch of fuckers.....not so healthy.

8. Knowing that it's only the Pre-season and the game doesn't count feels better.

9. Being so bored that I am creating useless and silly lists....depressing.

10. Counting down the minutes until my work day is over....excruciating.

11. That fucking canned Busch beer coming back to haunt me today.....regretful...but it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Holy Shit

It's a holiday weekend and dh decided to tell me he plans on bring home some "frothy beverages" for our enjoyment for tonight.

See, the issue is that I decided to give up alcohol for three weeks. Since I'm a weekend lush, I figured a break would do me good.

That started when one of my best friends who is also a daddy told me that he hasn't picked up a drink in close to a month or so. My reaction was "Damn dude, you don't need a cold beer after a long, tough week?" And he replied, "nope". I said "How do you unwind then?" He said "I don't need to unwind." I said "But you have KIDS! I don't have any kids and I feel the need to "unwind" with alcohol every weekend...."

So that got me to seriously thinking....Do I really need booze to unwind at the end of the week...every week?

I decided that if a father of two teenagers can stay away from the "devil's water" for a month, then there should be NO reason why I can't put the shit down for a while too.

Besides, I've been trying to live more healthy. Drinking 8 glasses of water a day, slowly getting back to my low-carb diet, reading books again like the old days, ect.

This whole week I've stuck to everything. Until today. Dh is bringing home some beer and I am REALLY needing to unwind.....

SHIT SHIT SHIT....I need an intervention....I'm officially a weekend lush.
