Tuesday’s Troubles

It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Troubles. I’ve said it before, but this should be named “things i’m annoyed / confused / want to complain about”, however I couldn’t figure out how to make any of those into a snappy title, so Tuesday Troubles it is. And yes, I do realize that these aren’t true “troubles”. I know that many of these for sure could be defined as first world problems!

~So I was reading one of my favorite websites (Radar Online) and can across this article talking about how surely Tori Spelling and Dean are on the outs because she was seen, GASP, without her wedding ring. Now maybe he did really cheat on her and maybe they are splitting up, but listen, if someone speculated every time I didn’t wear my rings I would have been on the road to divorce 900 times. Sometimes I just forget. Sometimes I just don’t wear it. No biggie.  I know I’m married!

~I finally decided it was time to give WB a blanket in his crib and he loves it.  Like he sleeps more with the blanket than he used to without it – if that’s even possible because he was always a good sleeper.  The only thing is he likes to cover his head with the blanket (like I mean cover his head good), which drives me bananas.  I know that he can breathe, but I still don’t like it.   Any way I can break him of this but still let him have a snuggly blanket?

~When does everyone take down their holiday decorations?  Is the weekend after New Year’s standard?  That’s kind of the rule I follow, but I know that some people love to keep those Christmas lights on until well into February (#stopit).  I am dreading taking down out tree because 1) it’s a pain and 2) it still looks fabulous and hasn’t really dropped any needles, but it’s coming down this weekend.

~Does anyone pay much attention to the stories people share on FB?  Like the one about the server who got stiffed on a tip because of her “lifestyle” that was ALL over FB and the news and umm, turned out to be a hoax?  Or the “Like” and “Share” if you love your kid and if you Skip it means you are an awful person?  Yeah, all those.  Ahhhhh, I cannot stand them.  All those stories, how do I know if they are real?  Because I just skim right by that these days.  Right by it.

~SO random, but the toilet in the bathroom in our bedroom randomly flushes.  I googled it and it’s called Phantom Flushing and is because of a leak, blah, blah, blah.  The only problem is that it does it like once a day, so I kind of forget about it those other 23 hours.  I about jumped out of my skin when it happened the other night when B was gone.  OMG so scared!  I need to get B to fix this before I have a heart attack!  Has anyone ever had such an issue?  Scary right???

That’s it from here for now! What’s troubling you today?

    Well, three things – first before I forget. I went out to lunch with my mom last week not a block from my condo. While she went to the bathroom, I waited in the hall. Guess whose headquarters was on the third floor? WANTABLE! haha – think I could convince them to just let me pick up my box from them? Second, my roll my eyes at Facebook are those posts that I don’t love God if I don’t share or He will answer my prayers if I do share – whatever. I really don’t think God cares….. And, generally, I take down my decorations on January 6 – the end of the 12 days of Christmas, but since that is a Monday and I’ve been a bit bah humbug this year, I’ll probably just take down next weekend….

      LOL. I SO would have went into Wantable and said Hi!

      And I agree, does God really care about my Facebook likes? Really?

    OMG – I’m sorry but I am laughing so hard at your toilet that has a phantom flush. (That is a Tuesday Trouble)! I had a similar problem (not with the toilet) when the ceiling fan in my daughters’ bedroom would randomly turned on. The crazy thing is that you can’t even turn the fan on without a remote control and I knew the remote was on a shelf that no child could reach. The first time it happened in the middle of the night my girls were about 6 months old and I went into their room to nurse them and the fan was going. I was completely freaked out. We had guests over earlier that day so I thought that perhaps someone had been in their room which quite honestly I also found kind of creepy. Then my husband did a search of the house and the garage door was wide open. I was completely convinced that someone was stowed away in my house waiting to murder all of us but then my husband admitted he couldn’t remember whether he’d shut his side of the garage. I still made him search the entire house (includig the attic) before we could go back to bed. When it happened again a few nights later and I was certain no one was in the hosue I knew something wonky was happening with the fan. I googled it and same thing, a short in the fan or problem with installation. FREAKY! I probably would have dialed 911 if my husband hadn’t been home when my phantom fan turned on. You poor thing!

      OMG I am cracking up! If I leave my garage door open and don’t realize it until later, I am convinced that someone has crawled up in my attic and is stowing away to attack me later. Never mind how they got up there without using a ladder?.

    What about a breathable blanket? I got my daughter’s at Babies R Us.

    1. Jennifer

      Ohhh, why didn’t I think of that! Thanks!

    Oh my goodness I think I would flip out if my toilet flushed while I was in bed. That would be so freaky.
    Poor Tori. Who knows if he really cheated and I agree she could of just not had her rings on. They obviously have sex since they have 4 kids that look just like them not sure why that lady thought they didn’t and if they aren’t having it right now then maybe she had to get a little lift after having all those kids. 😉 Love me some Tori.
    Usually our decorations come down the weekend after New Years but this year with me leaving on Monday they will probably be up until I get back. M will probably take the outside down but the inside will just have to wait. We have a fake tree so its not a big issue.

    1. Jennifer

      LOL. And I was home alone which was even worse!

      I get the impression that they used to do it ALL THE TIME and now, maybe not so much?? I like her too! I used to watch her crazy reality shows.

    love the photo of the furries on Instagram. I don’t have Instagram but I love seeing your photo feed on your blog. I have two Yorkies and they are awesome. Love your Baxter….he is tooooo cute.

    1. Jennifer

      Are your yorkies wild? Buddy (my Yorkie) is a wild guy!!!

    I take all breakup rumors about celebs with a grain of salt. I’ve been reading for what, ten years now every other week that Angelina and Brad are breaking up. Sure, they might, but it’s like crying wolf…if you do it constantly for years on end, when it finally does happen, no one will care!

    We keep all lights going until Epiphany (January 6). We start taking inside decorations down then and outside the first weekend after. Though, I admit, depending on health and various and sundry comings and goings, stuff may stay up longer (though again, not lit after the 6th).

    There is so much “crap” going around on Facebook that isn’t true that I don’t even open up Facebook without having Snopes open too! And my friends who pass on “it’s a fact I know” crap that is just beyond untrue just surprises the hell out of me. A tad bit of research on most of this stuff will debunk it but folks get all up in arms about stuff without checking. And there are websites that specifically post non factual “news” articles that get passed around as news and half the time folks don’t even realize it’s satire. It’s pretty scary the “facts” that I hear people talk about on the street which are completely false. That’s the scary part about social media these days.

    Now the restaurant server who posted the receipt…that’s completely different because she intentionally wanted attention and committed fraud. Not sure what’s happening in her real life, but I think she needs help.

      Like Jennifer Aniston being pregnant!!!! She’s been pregnant so many times I can’t even keep up.

    I forget my rings all the time! If I take them off to put on lotion or makeup or something I always end up forgetting them! I’m glad my life isn’t all over a tabloid!

    1. Jennifer

      Totally the same! Tori was wearing her ring again today according to Radar Online!
