The Things I Ponder 2nd Edition

I have so much fun pondering things in my head, that I figured--hey--why not let my fab readers ponder along with me? Here we go for another addition. Get your beverage of choice, a chocolate snack and get cozy...

*When did people start sending out invites for parties months in advance? I'm not talking weddings here, people...actual parties...I just don't understand--or am I just behind on the times? Am I supposed to invite everyone months in advance now?

*When you give someone your number and they don't call you {not any of you--a mom I met here in town awhile ago...} and then you see them later on, what do you say? I pretended I didn't see her....

*Am I the only one who buys running shoes with every intention of running, but then never have time to run? Once it warms up to a decent temp and it isn't dark when Leo gets home I want to start again...I pinky swear.

*Why do I love the ID channel so much?

*Why do I love LMN so much?

*Why does my hair seem like it takes forever to grow but that one white/gray hair grows like a weed? It's like the dandelion variety of hair...

*Why do my cheeks and thighs feel swollen during PMS? Bloating? Fatness?

*How do I have time to ponder such nonsense?

So there you have it. A day inside of my brain. Amazing right?

What questions do you ask yourself? I would love to hear some of your random questions right now--leave them in a comment if you want or write up your own post and let me know!

I'm with you on both the running, and the exchanging numbers thing. I have said on multiple occasions, trying to make mom friends is worse than dating!

amanda said...

i would have totally hidden. i am sooo chicken when it comes to stuff like that!

Melissa said...

I think you have a forever wandering mind like I do!

Lindsay said...

-I dont send out that early... I shoot for month to 3 weeks early. not sure if thats right or not

-I would have hid. If I couldn't have I would have pretended like I never gave it to her :-P and act super busy

-nope not the only one

-dont have this channel its probably a good thing I don't

-I had never heard of LMN but just went to their site.. this could be trouble!

-I don't think I have any gray yet *knocks on wood* but mine seems to get dry really fast! I feel like I am always trying to find a good conditioner. Tips?

-prob bloating.. I think we retain a lot of water then.. At least thats my story and Im sticking to it

-I wonder weird things too and Im not sure when I have a chance to do such things!

Krissy said...

LMN Is amazing. I'm addicted too. I can just watch that channel for hours a day. HAHA

I'm the worst with invitations. I send them two weeks before the party and then end up having no one want to come because of the fact that I sent it too late. I'm not sure WHAT the appropriate time is anymore! haha

Amber Page Writes said...

Oh the white hair! I have a few that are currently the bane of my existence. Maybe I should send an invitation to my "Pluck the Gray Hair" party two months before they begin to show?

Anti-Supermom said...

Ha-ha, here's mine for the night... I noticed a woman getting ready to take my parking spot at the gym with a cigarette hanging from her mouth.

What the heck?

Heather @ Two Little Monkeys said...

I'm shocked if I invite people for a party days in advanced! I am so with you about the gray hairs, they grow like weeds.

Shell said...

The invites- my stepsister sends them MONTHS in advance for her children's birthday parties. What they heck?

Lin said...

I dont get the month in advance invites either. You're lucky if I send you an invite at all & dont just call you. I love the ID channel! I spent my entire weekend watching their shows.

Sophia's Mom said...

Lots of pondering going on in that head!!!

- Running shoes! I have never owned a pair because, who am I kidding?!
- I have to confess that I have exchanged numbers with moms that I genuinely intended to call and never EVER did. Sometimes I lost their number, sometimes I just never found the time. And then I have the nerve to complain that I don't have "mommy friends"!

Much More Than Mommy said...

I got new running shoes with my Christmas money to help me train for a 5K I'm doing in March. I have worn them ONCE. So I'm wondering how I'm going to do in that 5K... is running like riding a bike, or is that *just* sex?

Lucy said...

funny. I was reading this as my husband is getting ready for work and I should being watching my son but i could resist. Is it nonsense if we're both pondering the same things? I wonder about thank you notes? Are they a lost art? And about that phone number.....same thing here if you go out on a first date (not an affair) But an evening out with a new friend and she hasn't called...maybe she's just not into me? Ha ha. Love your blog, thanks for visiting mine, and I'm your newest follower. I'm hooked.

Melissa said...

Funny stuff. I wonder about random things constantly. Sometimes my mind just won't shut off!

I'm now following you by the way... great blog!

The Mommyologist said...

You are so funny!! I've done that with running shoes more than once. I'm actually lucky if I use them to go walking let alone running!

Llama said...

If I get another invitation to a party that is 4 months away im going to scream. I have recently needed to get a calender just to schedule my social life. Honestly is not bc its that big...it just that so many people have so many things going on and they keep setting DATES...AHHHHHHHH!
I feel you on the bloating right about now...im going to go to kickboxing and try my best to work it out...and the cookies i ate yesterday. lol

why do I eat tons of cookies and then feel guilty?
is kickboxing worth it if i eat all of the cookies later on?
what is up with the chocolate cravings lately?
haha!

Kristi said...

As far as the invitations, I haven't really been invited to anything lately so I don't know. I mean, I only gave people a two week notice for the wedding!! LOL

I don't give anyone my number either so not really sure about the whole not calling thing. HEY! Maybe if I started giving my number and talking to people they would invite me to parties!

And I LOOOOOOOOVE LMN and ID! They are my faves :)

p.s. pleading the 5th on gray hairs. I....ummmmm have never had one. I swear...you believe me, right??

Dondi said...

I am right there with you on the invites. That drives me crazy. And no matter what I do to try to remember about the party I usually end up forgetting anyway.

Oh! And the hair! I think the gray hairs have some kind of conspiracy going on. They just grow & grow & then start multiplying. It's just not right!

But you were asking about the eliptical. I got a Nordic Track E7. I love it!! This one especially b/c I'm kinda short & this one is perfect for me - the stride on it isn't as long as it is on others so my short legs can do it better :P

Allison R said...

I'm glad to see someone else is as all over the place as I am :)

Jenny said...

first off...totally love LMN! I think we were sisters seperated at birth or something!

anyway...i have been pondering lately why when you comment on someones page and you totally love reading their blog yet they never come to yours? what is that all about. a little comment love never hurts. i was thinking of posting about that...or is that a bloggy no no?

Danielle (Life with the Hewitt Family) said...

You have brought up some interesting things to ponder. I have often wodered about the gray hair thing. I swear they can literally grow overnight. I might color my hair you know to cover the gray and then not 2 days later I have this long freaking hair! Grrr!

Krystyn said...

Should I know what LMN is? Not sure.

And, go get your run on....you can do it.

Planning months in advance? That's something people without kids do, right?

I loved your list. I also have my mind running in multiple directions and I think of the weirdest things while changing diapers or making dinner.

I have an award for you at my blog:

These days, I am pondering why I haven't gotten off my butt to exercise. LOL. I think it's better to ponder and eventually act than not at all.

Honey B. said...

I think it means I'm way out of touch, but I've never sent an invitation for any parties I've done? lol

morewineplease said...

You know, I get that from people also... and I just want to call them and say, "seriously, for a party??? 2 - 3 weeks is plenty of time!"
What is ID and LPM... Living Proof Ministries???
