Am I the only one...

Who thinks up things to post while going about my daily routine? Thinking out each word in my head, and then when I go to actually write the post I can't remember what I had been thinking about. I need to carry a voice recorder around, but then I would have to speak out what I am thinking and I'm not always in a position to where I would want others to hear me talking about what I want to post. For example when hubs is blabbering about his day at work going into every detail it wouldn't be appropriate to break out the recorder and start talking about how I really don't care about what he has to say, how it is always about him, and who cares how my day was. So is it just me?

My Job

I think I am burnt out. I've been at my job for the last 10 years. I have had different positions within the same group. I think I have had enough though. I'm unmotivated. My job is date driven. If I don't have anything due in the next day or two I don't do anything. I can't seem to work ahead. I used to be on top of my game. I used to have everything all organized and color coded. Now I just don't care. I do what I need to get by and nothing more. There is little or no reward for doing extra so why bother? I'm not worried about losing my job cause I still do what I need to. There are people who do nothing and are still around. The place I work is so afraid of being sued it takes a lot to get fired. In ten years I don't think I have ever seen anyone actually get fired. They clear out the poor performers when they do massive job cuts. Or they move them on to a different group.
I've tried looking for another job, but the economy is terrible. The only thing in the paper by me is the Men's Club looking for dancers. After having 3 kids, I don't think I am qualified for that position.

So yesterday, after I piqued my own interest, I had to go check out http://deepthoughts.blogspot.com/. Not as scary as I had feared. A lonely 50 something. I wonder if he is hot. I wonder if he has money. Maybe he will be my sugar daddy. I know I am married, but I would like a sugar daddy to buy me things. Not extravagant things, but like new tires for my car. I need new tires. There just isn't enough money for tires. Other things come first like food, daycare, and actually paying the bills once in awhile. Are there people out there that would adopt a family and give them money? Awhile ago I thought it would be neat if there was a program for all the lonely people in the world to adopt a family. Then they would have somewhere to go at the holidays and in turn they could help support the family. Sound like a good idea? I wonder if any rich lonely people would buy into it. I know there already is an adopt a family program and we buy gifts for some random anonymous family at Christmas, but my vision would be different. There would be an independantly wealthy individual and he/she would get to hang out with my family at Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, go to the zoo, have family picnics, etc. and in exchange they would buy me tires, or help pay the bills once in awhile. Anyone want to volunteer?

It's About Time

This blog has been sitting awhile waiting for someone to come and post something. And here it is. WOW! I feel like it has to be monumentous because it is the first post. I don't want it to be depressing cause then that would be getting this blog off on the wrong foot. Though I can't say all the posts here will be puppies and daisies. The name is Thought that are Deep after all. BTW- Deep Thoughts was already taken. I haven't checked it out. It could be scary.

So here is something that has bothered me. Have you noticed the paper seat covers that are in the women's bathrooms? They weren't there 10 years ago, were they? I'd say 3-5 years ago they became a fixture in the women's bathroom. I can't speak for the men's bathroom. I imagine they are in there too. In the stalls. Anyways... I grew up putting two strips of toilet paper on the seat before I did my business in the public rest room. Or I did the hoover if it was really nasty. I just can't get used to the paper covers. They are so light weight that they fly off in the breeze created by pulling down your pants, or in the whoosh created when you go to sit. And then there is the punch out center. Are you supposed to punch it out before you put it down or do you let your pee stream push it down? The few times I have used these I punched it out first because I was afraid the pee would pool up on the thin paper and then I would be all wet. I'll stick to my toilet paper strips, or if I am especially brave I will risk it and go bare cheek on the toilet seat like I would do at home. Has anyone ever really caught anything from sitting on a toilet seat? Maybe I will carry some sanitizer around and start wiping down the seat before I squat. Have you noticed what it says on the packaging for the paper seat covers? "Provided by the Management for your protection". Who exactly is the Management that decided to use some of the budget to provide these? And why do they want to protect my A$$?
