Randomly Random
  • My Mom sent this email to me the other day... and since I have a slight fondness for M&M's ... I thought I'd share (the email, not the M&M's...)
    Friday, I went to the doctor for my yearly physical. My blood pressure was high, my cholesterol was high, I'd gained some weight, and I didn't feel so hot. My doctor said eating right doesn't have to be complicated and it would solve my physical problems. He said just fill your plate with bright colors: greens, yellows, reds, etc. I went right home and ate an entire bowl of M&M's and sure enough, I felt better immediately. I never knew eating right could be so easy!
  • I took the tiara off the oatmeal container - it came off smooth as silk! No problems whatsoever! Then I put it in a bag and stuck in on a shelf... but I didn't push it back far enough and down it fell. Down, down, down, and landed with a little thud. And yeah. It broke. I'm not going to post pictures. It will make me cry.
  • I still don't have pictures of my niece. I got a nice blank email from my Mom last night, but no pics. She had a rather crazy day yesterday, so I guess I can forgive her, this once...
  • We got things worked out with the rental agreement. We will be here till next August. Sigh. Not what we had hoped for, but he's not going to raise the rent. So, at least there was one positive thing.
  • Red had a new friend over the other day. This kid was so great! He didn't say "dude" the entire time he was here. NOT ONCE!! And Red limited his "dude"-isms to a bare minimum. I think we should have this kid over more often.
  • Yesterday was a big cleaning day for us. We got so many things done! Now if I can just maintain it... sigh.... I even got the computer desk cleaned off! Major accomplishment for me!

I think that's about it for this Sunday Morning. I talked to my parents and it sounds like things are going really well with my Sister and the baby. I am thinking about taking a trip up there to see her. I'd have all three kids, no Hubby, for about 13-15 hours - depending on the number of potty breaks. And I'd need to do all the driving in one day. On a scale of 1 to 10, how crazy is that?

Wow...what a crazy mix of good and bad!

I adore the new header, by the way!

I LOVE the way your mom thinks--a big bowl of M&M's sounds like the perfect thing! Sorry about the tiara--I'm glad you didn't post pictures because I WOULD HAVE CRIED.So glad you got the rental agreement problem worked out.

Maybe you can find someone else heading the same direction and share the driving???

Hi! I came over from Yvonne's blog, and I really enjoyed reading yours! I cracked up at the e-mail about eating M&M's...just like the doctor ordered! ;)

I was amazed and impressed at the beautiful tiara you created! I'm sooo sorry it fell and broke. :(

Yay for nice friends coming over! should see how dirty my computer desk is right now.

I'd be too big of a woos to take on that long drive by myself. Yvonne's idea is a good one! :)

I've been eating right all this time and I didn't know it..YIPPEE!!

Sorry about the tiara but look on the bright side, your very first one turned out so you know you can do it again.

Sorry about your tiara! I would cry too.
And yes, a 13 hour trip in one day with kids is definitely a 10 in my book! But if you decide to do it, good luck!

I haven't read anything yet, but I like the candy colored header. It makes me want some Starburst real bad!

13 hours driving a car= A sweaty and chafed butt.

That seems like a lot of driving unless you have a DVD player and a 6 pack of Spongebob to occupy your kids.

Lots of goods and bads. Congrats on the new niece and the new friend for your son, and the somewhat fix of the rental agreemtent.

Good luck!

Sorry about the tiara. Now you know you can do it though!

Golly you are in a whirl, but I'd be tempted to take the trip anyway.
