Random Notes...on everything

It's hazy out this morning. Looks a lot like rain is coming. I'm starving. It's too early to be awake. Noah is sitting in the middle of the living room floor in his robot t-shirt & diaper eating cheerio's and watching Sponge Bob.  Husband is going to be gone literally all day working [gotta love duty week...not.] And I am at a loss for a blog. This usually doesn't happen to me. Being...empty minded, that is. ---This is normally where my husband or, if he were around, Father-in-law would insert some humerous crack about the whole 'empty minded' thing.---

There have been a handful of things on my mind lately. Nothing of real significance...just a few random ideas bouncing around the ol' noodle. So, since, unfortunately for you, I have nothing to blog about at this current moment, I'll divuldge said things to you:

     ~I really don't like my hair short. Atleast, not lately. Husband likes it shorter and he convinced me to chop it off. And I liked if for a few days, but now I'm bored. There isn't much to do with it style-wise. It's either straight as a board or curled slightly at the ends. And that's it. Period. I've thought about darkening it again. I did it in college and it looked pretty good. It was a deep, chocolate brown. And in high school, I kept blonde highlights in it. It'll be time for a haircut in another 2 weeks or so...maybe I can decide what to do with it by then.

     ~Noah took 5 steps the other day [if you follow my Twitter, you will have known that already] but hasn't really done anything since then. In a way it kind of bothers me. Kind of. Just because I hate listening to those moms who add that emphasis to the age their child was when they started walking. "Well, little Johnny started walking when he was 11 months." Like I really care when little Johnny started walking. I'm honestly enjoying the last little bit of time before he does start walking, because when he does I will never get a break. He is waaaay too active for me to even have a chance.

     ~I love my husband. The other night I had to go pick up the Casting Crowns CD that we got for free for donating to a "Help the Children" Christmas thing or something at Family Christian. I had been eyeing this new Bible. You know, the beautiful pink and brown, newly revised and updated Life Application Study Bible. As I am heading out the door to run to the bookstore, he tells me, "Get that Bible you want while you're there. You deserve it." Then, when he gets home from work last night, very obviously totally exhausted and needing a good nap, he says to me, "I have an idea. How about I keep the baby and you go get your nails and toes done." WHAT?! Where is all of this coming from? I was so excited. I asked 5 or 6 times if he was really sure and ended up spending about an hour and a half letting 2 sweet little Oriental ladies massage my feet and my hands while I sipped a Starbucks and let the massage chair loosen the tension in my back. Gah. It was fantastic. I love my husband. What a guy!

     ~Grey's Anatomy last night was crazy good. Mark Sloane has a KID?! Didn't see that coming. I mean, I saw it on the previews last week but figured it wouldn't actually be his daughter. And the chief's new-found run with alcoholism has me concerned. If he isn't careful he's gonna lose his wife. Again. And I loved that Derek, Mark and Arizona split the costs of the new tools for that poor little boy. Not like they don't make enough money...No new episode next week because of Thanksgiving. Boo! Don't the producer's know that I am thankful for Grey's and have no major plans for the holiday?

     ~I am starting to read the book of "Romans" in my beautiful new bible. :) I have read most of the New Testament before, but never have read all of Romans. I love Paul's letters to the churches. I get so much out of his work. I think I admire the fact too, that Paul was such an anti-Jesus person and God used him in such a mighty and powerful way to reach soooo many people and save thousands. It just shows you that God can use anyone and any situation to bring honor and glory to him.

    ~I hit 50 Followers here on my blog yesterday! I am so excited! I've decided that I'm going to do my very first Giveaway when I reach 100. So start telling your friends. Because it's going to be a good one. I already have an idea! I am starting to aquire some loyal followers who are commenting on a lot of my posts. I feel bad when I don't comment back. So I'm going to try to start a new "policy" for myself. If you comment on my post, I will comment on yours. I am a firm believer that if you take the time to write a blog, publish your thoughts out there into the world, then you should be acknowledged for it. So...yea. You comment me, and I'll comment you. :) Tell your friends. Haha!

     ~I absolutely, 100%, can NOT wait to see "New Moon!!!" Saw the previews again last night and I don't feel like I can get there fast enough. I'm going with some girlfriends on Monday Night. No husbands. No children. Just us, Edward, and Jacob. CAN. NOT.WAIT.

     ~ We have no idea what next year holds for us, as far as Josh's job is concerned. Things keep changing so much. One minute the waiting list for A-School is crazy long and Josh can't go to school until January 2011. And then it's back to being June of this coming year when he can go. No idea. It's all hanging up in the air right now, and it sort of frustrates me some. I think God is trying to get me to let go of the "control" I think I have to have on situations and trust him. Because I don't like being completely clueless about what we are going to do. It drove me banana's the month or 2 that it took last year for them to give us our orders for this station. I hate the wait. I'm a little bit impatient.

     ~I feel like I am too nice sometimes. I have started to feel as if I am so nice to people that they take advantage of me. And I've started to change that. I'm not going to be rude to people, but I feel like for the longest time I have tried to reach out to people, be people's friend, and in the end I am always the one that comes out on the crap end of the deal. Unappreciated and taken advantage of. Even Josh has said something about it before. I'm just now starting to listen. And God is really convicting me about these thoughts. Reminding me of the infamous Golden Rule.

Alright. There you go. A peek into my mind this morning. I have a post in the works for this weekend that's going to require a little bit more time. It's one I would like you to be involved in, but the past 2 times I have tried a MckLinky, no one linked up and I was really bummed. So, I'll share my idea so if you want to join you can. I'm doing a post on all of the quirky things around my house that make our house a home. Just simple things...nothing fancy. Little things that stay out place, etc. And I'm taking photos of them to share with you. If you think you'd like to play, will you leave me a comment so I can decide if I want to bother with a MckLinky or not?

Hope everyone has a great Friday! Weekend is here! YAY!

I love reading these little tid bits! Congrats on the 50 followers! I had to scroll past the Grey's part because I didn't watch it yet. It is still chillin on my DVR.

I hear you on the being too nice part. I started to change my ways over the past year. It is hard and kind of sad (at least for me) but it has to be done. Good Luck!

I feel this way a lot - absent minded type of I don't have much to say but I feel like I need to say something kind of mood.

Anyway, Grey's was AWESOME last night! I'm worried about Merideth hiding things for the chief.

I hope everything with your husbands job and whatnot straighten out. Next year is a big question mark for us too.

Good for you for hoping Noah stays his little self a while longer. It is so hard because every new thing makes us so proud, but at the same time, every new thing means growing up faster and faster. Its such a bittersweet thing.

Congrats on 50 followers, Courtney! You'll make it to 100 in no time.

Since you wrote a "random" post, I'll leave a few "random" comments ;0)...
1.) You are so cute that I'm sure you look adorable regardless of the length of your hair!
2.) You DO have an awesome hubby. He must have a great wife, though, to inspire such giving gestures!
3.)I just watched Twilight the other night with my daughter. I didn't think I'd like it, but I'll admit it ... I did. I'm actually looking forward to New Moon, too!

I'd love to play along! Your husband definitely sounds like a keeper! :)

Wow, congrats on reaching 50!

Is the new "Who am I?" picture what your hair looks like right now? I like it! I don't think it's boring. (Then again, I am not an interesting hair person. I have had straight brown hair pretty much my whole life and never style it.)

I would play along, but I think it would work ok without a McLinky too (just using comments).

Congrats on hitting 50! Followers that is. :)

I love Grey's! I wasn't expecting the girl to actually be Mark's daughter either.

Your husband sounds great! You are one lucky lady!
