Random Tuesday Thoughts

Welcome to Random Tuesday, a fun blog hop brought to you by "The Un Mom", head over and check out her super cool graphics.

1. Publix had a buy one get one free special on celery. I only needed 3 stems but I can't pass up anything free. Now I need suggestions on what to do with all this celery. Help!
  • pls note I only like it completely dissolved in a soup or stew where I can't taste because it's stringy and gross but somehow always called for in stuff.
  • oh yeah and I'll use it in stuffing later this week but that still leaves an entire stalk!
  • And does anyone know how long celery will last in the fridge? If it gets limp is it still okay to eat?
2. Disney has changed the name of it's next princess movie from "Rapunzel" to "Twisted" to appeal to a broader audience. Anyone really fooled into thinking this is more than a Disney Princess raise your hand. Oh yeah and they have decided to stop making Princess movies. Booooo I finally had a daughter!

3. Random things I've said to my daughter this past week:
  • Things I find myself saying:
  • HEY! No throw rocks at the puppy!
  • Let the puppy pee in peace!
  • No no! Don't pull the puppy's tail!!
  • Stop pulling the puppy's ears!!!!!
  • Don't throw rocks on the picnic bench
  • Stop poking my belly button!
4. My hair is falling out. I've heard this happens after a pregnancy. It's very annoying; all the drains are clogged.

5. For Monday dinner I had crackers, 1/2 an avocado, one slice of apple that tasted like dish liquid so I didn't finish the rest and a pumpkin muffin. That's what I get for staying at work late. Really looking forward to having Thursday & Friday off!!

That's all I got! Have a great Tuesday ya'll!

I had read that naming the movie 'Tangled' instead of 'Rapunzel' would appeal to a larger audience...plus it looks like instead of cutting her hair off, she gets to keep it. Princess Nagger and I are seeing that tomorrow!

I wouldn't eat limp celery...it's time to throw it out then. It will keep longer if you cut off the leafy ends (but keep the other end intact), wash it thoroughly then wrap it in foil before putting in your fridge - it keeps a lot longer that way! :)

Your random things said to your daughter totally cracked me up!

I bought that celery too. I "had planned" to eat it with peanut butter for a more nutritious snack and yet, I haven't even opened it. Sigh.

What? No more disney princesses?? I guess it's to take away from men coming to the rescue of the princess in distress, which I can kind of get. But really? You can't change fairy tales!!!

You could try cutting the celery into pieces and freezing it then putting it in bags to be used when you need it for soups and stews--just a thought.

I hear ya on the hair loss. I found it to be an awfully annoying after-pregnancy side effect.

I would have NO IDEA what to do with so much celery. Blah :P

Visiting from RTT! I'm jealous you have Publix. It's my fave store and the closest one to us is 100s of miles away. Bummer. I hope you find a use for all the celery! Happy Thanksgiving. :)

Publix was always the place of choice when we went to Pompano for March Break...I remember collecting stamps there. Made shopping fun as a kid.
As for your two days off...you deserve them and I hope you enjoy them!
