Random Tuesday #2

randomtuesday

It's TUESDAY, time for some randomness

I really want to win some Smencils, you know those smelly pencils that smell so good. I have only seen one giveaway for this item. I keep checking though. I know I could just go out and buy them, but winning them is so much more fun.

Ok, so I am at an age where I am pre-menopause (according to the doctor). I still don't understand pre-menopause and the actual menopause. Anyway, I have been prescribed FemHrt which works for me and removes all the nasty symptoms that you get when you're in this stage of your life, like bitchness, headaches, night sweats - this all seems to be under control, but what good is it if I can't remember to take the damn thing? Here I sit today at work, having not remembered to take it this morning - AGAIN. My god! Can anyone relate?

I was on my way to work listening to my MP3 player and an arabic song came on - I love arabic music. I am half Lebanese/German. Both sides of the family had a great influence and taught me to love international foods and music. Thanks mom and dad!

Having a Scentsy House Party on September 16th @ 6:30PM, come join me if you are in the Florida area. More details here.

The English language is so difficult sometimes...what's up with chose and choose? I know the difference, but every time I go to use either of those words I have to stop and thing about which one I am suppose to use. I was a Katharine Gibbs honor graduate - Go Figure!

Which brings me thinking about one of my classes, typing class to be exact. I have got to share the teachers names with all of you - Mz. Zawisza. Please forgive me if you know her or someone with that last name. It just cracked me up every time I had to say her name.

I am so close to being in that "menopause place" that it's not even funny! I tease my hubs that we had our babies just in the nick-of-time! Ha! Ha! I had my first at 41 and my second at 43 and well, now I'm 44! I say, bring it on!

Great random post!
P.S. Did you take your pill today? ((smile))

I want Smencils more than anything now. I have smelly markers so now I need smelly pencils. Also I want one of those that change colors as you write, awesome too!

My sister has been in the pre-menopause mode for a couple of years...she has commented about forgetting to take her pills every so often and kicks herself when she forgets. :)

OK, I must be living under a rock - I hadn't heard about the smelly pencils...sound intriguing, I might have to get some for fun! :)

The English language is a complicated one, isn't it? ;)

Happy RTT! :)

I think Smelly pencils would be a hit in my house. I will have to get some for the Christmas stocking this year!

I graduated with honors with a OIS degree and still get caught up on dumb words like chose and choose...some things will always be tricky I guess! Haha!

People with funny last names are always great...unless they happen to be you ;) :D

justicecw said...

That is so funny that you said that about Smencils because I just won some!! :) They look great. I have not opened them yet though because I am saving them for my son for Christmas!

**Nicole** said...

Mmmm...smencils, had never even heard of them before :) I'm afraid if I got any though they'd go right in Amber's mouth. :S She's still at the age where just about everything does, and if they smell good there's no doubt I'd find a bunch of gnawed on pencils all around...Haha!!!

Kim said...

Smencils....LOVE THEM! My hubby brought one home to me and I use it so rarely as I don't want the smell to go away. It's the root beer one and it smells sooooo good. Now if they could just invent a way for us to smell them through the computer before we order them. But if the root beer smells this good I'm sure all the flavors do. If you ever do hear of a giveaway with them let us know. I know I'd be right in there trying to win.

Kim said...

Don't know if I'm pre-menopausal or not yet (feel like it) as I haven't been to the dr lately. Really need to do that. But I can sooo relate to the symptoms that you're having. Which brings me to the remembering thing. I am having a horrible time remembering to do things around the house much less to take a pill....which reminds me...now what was I saying? LOL :)

Did you take you pill today?

Kim said...

Just love to find people that have such a great varity of musical tastes. You had a great mom and dad!

Kim said...

Still wish I could come to your Scentsy House Party! Can you fly me down to FL?

justicecw said...

I love the English language and have always been quite good at it. The funny thing is I was horrible and both German and Spanish. I even spent a summer in Mexico and was still bad!!!

MDtripmom said...

Those pencils were the best! I'd buy them from the school store back in the elementary school days. In my past life, as a 3rd grade teacher, I always wanted to buy some to give to my students but I never found any, bummer!

justicecw said...

Your mention of typing reminded me of how I learned when I was young on a program called Sticky Bear typing. Then when my boyfriend wanted to learn I found out the software was still around but it was pretty expensive!!!

Good luck on your Scentsy party tomorrow. I wish I was in your area...I would be there for sure!!!!
