Fill 'Er Up Friday....Some Random Babblings To Prepare You For The Weekend

I made an attempt two Fridays ago to start a new feature on my blog:  Fill 'Er Up Friday.  I liked it.  So I'm doing it again.  It's just a post full of random nuggets of my thoughts and goings on.....which isn't much different from every other day here - but Friday is a day it gets a special title.

When it comes to road rage, I have my fair share of saying not so nice things to idiot drivers from the comfort of my car.  I don't, however, do anything that I would consider dangerous or stupid in order to make my point.  I just want to shout out a nice F U to the person who thought it appropriate to lay on their horn and then ride my bumper for a mile....just because I thought I'd be nice and let a person merge in to traffic from a turning lane.  Is this what the world is coming to now?  I can't be a courteous driver without ticking someone off?

I earned a Mommy of the Year award last night!!  I spent 3 hours finishing up Butter's bedroom ready for him to come home for the weekend.  It's now clean, organized, and it smells fantastic.  Please don't think of the fact that it's taken me 4 weeks to get off my behind and finish it....let me bask in the glory of it being done.. m'kay?

I applaud Facebook for their attempt at trying to compromise the unhappiness people showed with all of their new changes.  I now have the option back to see the recent stories.  If you want to the news feed to go back to the way it used to be - go to Account Settings and then Notifications.  Uncheck the box that asks if you want daily emails sent instead of individual emails.  Then go back to the news feed and click on those little blue triangles in the corner of your top few comments (you'll see a message pop up saying that stories like that will no longer be placed in your top stories feed).  Once that's done, the recent stories feed will come back.  You're welcome!!

While I'm on the Facebook topic, I would also like to point out that I'm fully aware that Facebook is a free service - that I don't have to use if I don't want to.  I do, however, still have the right of free speech - and the right to voice my opinion about changes I don't like.  It appears my bitching, along with thousands of others who shared the same concerns, was heard.  Facebook made some more changes to try and appease the situation.  I think constructive criticism is good to share.  Sending me ignorant messages how I shouldn't be complaining about a "free service" is not good to share.  That is all.

Today is the first day of Fall.  This makes me happy.  I'm ready for cooler weather, fall colors, and the beginning of the holiday season.... except for the fact that Christmas is coming a little too fast, and I'm broke, and I now have to come up with an amazing story to tell my kids as to why Santa is being stingy this year.  I'm thinking it's time to bring out the talk on the economy - and how Santa is dealing with some hard times.

I've made the executive decision that Oikos Greek yogurt is so much better than Chobani.  I understand that this blasphemous statement may cause a few huffs of disagreement...but I can live with that.  For the past several months, Chobani has been a staple to my daily diet.  Then, Oikos came out with a new fruit on the bottom version - and I decided to try it.  It's oh so creamy, has more fruit than Chobani, and costs less.  Sorry, die hard Chobani fans - but this fan is switching teams.

Alright, my brain has ran out of random nuggets of information to share this morning.  Time to get ready for work.  If you have a nugget to share with me - please post in the comments section.  Just share whatever's on your mind... maybe it's a rant, maybe it's a product suggestion, maybe it's just a random piece of juicy gossip... I'm always open to anything.


Till next time. ;)

  1. I love fall. I hate the new Facebook changes. I don't eat yogurt but love John Stamos (oikos spokesperson).


Tell me what's on your mind - I love to hear from you!
