Ten on Tuesday

1. First things first.....where did May go?!? seriously. That month freaking flew by. I'm gonna need these months to slow it down just a bit....I need more time to save and um plan and SLEEP. mostly sleep.

2. Speaking of sleep I'm tired. Pretty much all the time but not that I'm at the end of my first trimester I'm not nearly as exhausted as I was. I'm finding that I'm not sleeping through the night though since I'm getting up 5 and 6 times a night to use the bathroom. I thought that was something that didn't happen until the end!

3. Had a woman come into my work today...I've seen her a few times and she is a little mad and notoriously cranky. She is also in a wheel chair but in my mind that has nothing to do with her as a person. She came in while I was helping another person and she went right up to the counter and began talking to me as if no one was there. I said to her (in the nicest way possible) that I would be with her in just one minute and the woman freaked out- started screaming how dare I speak to her like she is vegetable and she is going to report me and blah blah. Both me and the woman I was helping just looked at her speechless....The woman then said she didn't want to deal with me so I got my co-worker for her. She then proceeded to tell my co-worker for 20 minutes what a horrible person I was. And its people like THAT which make me HATE working with the general public!

4. I finally saw this movie last night:

It was absolutely brilliant! I can't believe I waited so long to watch it! Colin Firth did an amazing job but I think I most like how Helena Bonham Carter pulled off the role as Queen Mother so well when she usually plays crazy spinster roles!

5. Despite how much I loved the movie I bawled like a baby for about 20 minutes after watching the movie....hurray for hormones! It was pretty funny though seeing the hubs frantically flipping through the what to expect for expectant fathers book though trying to figure out what the hell to do for an inconsolable partner who is crying for no reason at all! lol

6. I have such itchy feet....dying to take a trip! I really must go to some places around Ireland that are close enough to Limerick. I have a car that I can trust to take out of town now (woot!)

7. We are going to buy one of these next month:

 This, my friends, is called a condenser dryer. Its just like a regular tumble dryer expect no need for a vent. All of the water is condensed into a tank which I empty after a couple of loads...super handy because I can pretty much stick it in any corner with a socket! I REFUSE to not only live in a cold rainy country with no dryer, but to throw having an infant in the mix. no thank you. My days of having sandpaper texture towels are coming to a close!

8.I miss target. and wal-mart. really bad. damn....I'd even take a K-mart right about now. Never thought I'd say that.

9. I find that my priorities are starting to shift already. For the first time in my life working as much as possible is taking a back seat to a desire to actually take care of myself. Too bad we need money more than I need naps in the afternoon!

10. I'm a little bit ashamed to say I seriously still have st. patricks day decorations up in my kitchen. I mean, at first I was just lazy, but now I don't even notice them. I only realized it today because a friend called over for coffee and they made her laugh. I'm not ashamed enough to actually take them off the wall though...


  1. Eh, you're in Ireland. That's an excuse to have them up year round. Or not. But we can pretend it is.

  2. 1. I agree. That bastard went by too fast & I want more time.
    2. Ha, you thought wrong. As much as I want a baby, I'm not really looking forward to sleepless nights & constant peeing :/
    3. What a bitch. There's no need to be rude, I wish people would remember that.
    4. Was it? Colin Firth is usually fabulous but it looked a little slow, glad to hear it was good though.
    5. lol
    6. Do it & have a blast. Also, take lots of photos so & post them on FB so I can pretend I went on a trip too.
    7. This is pretty cool, I'd never heard of these before. Yay for not scraping off your skin with hard towels!
    8. lmao, Kmart is the ugly stepchild. No one likes it & it's always picked last. I'm sorry you guys dont have a Target. It should be a rule that every country must have one.
    9. Work sucks. They should pay us to stay home & blog.
    10. This is the same thing I have going on with our Christmas lights, which may or may not still be hanging on our house.

    Thanks for linking up doll!

  3. that customer sounds awful! working with the gp is not always fun! humans can be so terrible!!!!

    a good washer and dryer make such a difference. i went to the laundromat every weekend for SEVEN YEARS. it was awful! a laundromat in hollywood! the HORROR! i have had my own washer and dryer for about seven years now, and i still love it. so much better. SO MUCH BETTER!!!!!!
