Random Thoughts Thursday

This week I went back to work and it was tough!  Even the kids struggled the past few days.  Hopefully soon we’ll get back to our normal routine because we have lots of fun testing this month.  Now on to my random thoughts.

I love the smell and feel of freshly laundered clothes.  I wash my clothes in cold water and love it when I take it out and it smells so clean.  For the past couple of weeks I’ve been doing laundry at the laundromat and now I have my routine all set.  At first I was annoyed that I had to do laundry there but now I don’t mind it too much.  I go early in the morning when it isn’t crowded and am back home in less than an hour.  I hang dry most of my stuff at home and rarely use the dryer.

During the cold weather I always warm up my car before going anywhereThis article is telling me that I shouldn’t.  Huh?  

I’ve been looking for a house to buy.    I’ve seen a few but nothing has really stood out.  I saw one last weekend that I liked a lot but wasn’t ready to make an offer (but could see myself in it).  I mean, it is a HUGE commitment!  Saturday night I got an email that someone else had put in an offer.   I will admit that I was disappointed.  But it is also my fault because instead of waiting, I should have made an offer right away.  I just keep telling myself that there is the perfect one out there for me and I will find it.

Google Gmail does a good job of filtering out spam email.  About a month ago I entered my email address for a “free” tube of lash lengthening mascara.  I then decided not to get it.  Well, since then I’ve gotten so many spam emails.  On average, in one day I see about 15-20 emails in my spam folder.  Do these companies sell email addresses or what?  

My nephew graduates in May from Berkeley.  I am planning to go to the graduation. and there will be a few of us going (his parents, siblings, and other family members from Mexico).  I am looking into an AirBnB.  Any suggestions on where to stay?  I know it is cheaper in Berkeley/Oakland than in San Francisco.  But I also know there is so much more to do in San Francisco.

Are we becoming too lazy to write out all the letters in a word?  I see “fave” for “favorite” and “recos” for “recommendations”.  Is that really a thing?  It irks me because my 2nd graders are always misspelling so many words and it drives me crazy.

Random Thoughts Thursday

Happy New Year and welcome to my first Random Thoughts Thursday post.  I hope you are having a fabulous week whether you are in a warm or cold part of the country/world.  

How is is that years ago I would look forward to watching the clock strike 12 to welcome the new year?  Nowadays, not so much.  Sunday night I went to bed at 10pm.  A few people sent me texts/Facebook messages and I had to get up and turn off my phone.  The next day I was up at 5am and tempted to text back.  I didn’t.  I waited till 7am.  🙂

Winter has just begun and I am over this cold weather.  I don’t mind 20-30 degrees in the winter but anything lower than 0 is just plain crazy.  As much as I like running outside, anytime it is very cold, I do my runs at the gym.

Cold Anna

I’m been off for almost 2 weeks and I am actually a little excited to head back to work on Monday.  I like my job (I’m a 2nd grade teacher) but many days find myself tired and exhausted.  However, it is very rewarding when I see that I am making a difference in these kids’ lives.  The next countdown will be for Spring Break (end of March) and the last day of school (June 1-assuming there are no snow days).

With the new year anyone inspired to do a plank challenge?  Me.  I did start on Monday and today it is a 30 second plank.  

Anyone watch The Bachelor?  That show cracks me up!  The women are just so mean and catty.  I wonder if at the end of the season and they had a chance to see the show, they have any regrets about being on the show or cringe when they see the things they said or did?

Why is it that when there are 3 empty stalls in the women’s bathroom someone has to use the one next to me?  I do not understand this.  Please, help me understand this.  The same thing with a workout equipment.  The gym is empty.  There are a lot of machines for you to use.  Why must you use the one next to me?

Super, super, super.  Does anyone else get annoyed when you read something and the person always writes “super” all of the time?  It is super fit, super helpful, super cold, super easy, super cute, super excited, super annoyed, super hot, etc, etc.  No?  Just me?  

• I love Instagram and Instagram stories.  However, I am surprised at the number of people that post EVERY SINGLE THINGS on stories.  Whether they’re on a trip or at home, they’re recording everything and posting about it.  I sit there and wonder what is it about their life that makes them want to post so much on social media.  As for me, I tend to post more pictures than stories on Instagram.   What about you?
