Random Tuesday – Purgatory edition


Tuesday. AGAIN. BUT, time is flying by so let’s not complain. Let us dance about, frolicking, rejoicing in the glorious random of… Random Tuesday.

  • The couple weeks before the Fall semester begins are this weird sort of lull time. Crazy busy at times, dreadfully boring and quiet the others. I have a ton to do to get ready for teaching but nothing pushing me since it’s not imminent. HATE.
  • Over the weekend, I just could not get enough of limeade. I made it from frozen concentrate (I know, I know) but I just had a taste for it. In fact, I’m jonesing for it right now.
  • I was on a reading hiatus since we got back from vacation but this book I’m in the middle of (Backstage Pass, Olivia Cunning) is seriously good, y’all.
  • You know I am still peeling from my sunburn 3 weeks ago? Annoying!
  • We’re planning this birthday party and it’s getting crazy now. Oh, we need that too! Oh, let’s get this, it goes with the decor! It’s ballooning at a phenomenal rate! But we are definitely setting the bar for birthday parties for the entire year. Parents, take heed.
  • I want to get into the Avett Brothers but don’t know where to start. I mean, I like the idea of them but don’t know if I want to invest time looking and being critical. Ha ha.
  • I’m craving cake. Good thing there’s a party coming up. And good thing I’m running all the time.
  • Did I mention that not only am I training for a half-marathon but I am BACK TO BACK training? After my October 29th race, I have 10 weeks until my Disney half. If I take a week off, nine. I may do that though and find some kind of abbreviated plan for this sort of thing.
  • On Friday, we went to Target right after school/work and I let Isaac dominate a box on animal crackers. That right there is the difference between your first kid and the second.
  • It’s gorgeous in North Florida today! 75 and cool. Reminds me that summer is on its way out and Fall – my all-time favorite season – is on its way in. I already knew by the fact that the sun isn’t up nearly as long as it was in July but this? Is amazing.

OK, that is my humble offering to you today. Please take a moment to ogle Lucas Bernardini.
