Random Tuesday – Round and round

I’m not in a bad mood anymore; let’s get random!





  • That’s right: I feel a lot better about life this week. Sorry you had to listen to me whine like a baby last week. Things aren’t always rainbows and unicorns -I KNOW – but I wasn’t doing a very good job of keeping my chin up.
  • SO, I am really liking this season of Game of Thrones so far. What I really love about that show (and the books, too, though I’m only one in) is that characters DO die and they change a lot and it’s pretty gritty. I used to hate Jamie Lannister but I have grown to like him. Though Sunday’s ep didn”t make me like him so much; you bastard. (He’s still pretty hot tho, right?)
  • April seems to be flying by, right? I mean, I can’t be the only one who feels this way. On the one hand, I want it to stick around – I make less money in May – but on the other, I want summer to come because my allergies are less severe.
  • I was pretty pleased with myself on Sunday, getting the kids to church. In November and December, we went a lot but then I dropped off again. It’s a constant struggle; I want to take them but it’s like a great many things that change once you have children: you cannot fully enjoy a place/thing because you’re tending kids. I tried my hardest to listen to the homily and take something away from the priest’s word though.
  • I really do think I am an introvert but I tell you, I am getting really good at socializing at these team sports. This is Elliot’s fourth time playing a city sport and I actually like getting to know the moms and dads while the kids play. Last night they played the first team they played – who creamed them – but they totally killed them this time. Elliot scored!
  • I am really proud of him for not letting his attitude keep him down. He is easily discouraged but he keeps going out there and trying to whack the crap out of that ball… and then he does.
  • I tried a drop of lavender essential oil under my tongue today because it supposedly gets rid of allergies. I’ll report back. Initial observations: it tastes like ass.
  • OMG; it’s the last week of classes. Granted, next week are finals but that doesn’t affect me. I am ready for a break, I tell you that much. I am way stretched way too thin.
  • We’re going to the beach again on May 10th, btw. Big thing, lots of people. Can’t wait! Here’s a pic of us last year:8872889120_e466154388_z
  • I was about 30 weeks pregnant!
  • Even though she’s going through a really annoying sleep regression right now – up at 1:30, happy while I’m holding her but screaming in her crib – I still like her better on the outside of me. LOL.
  • She’s going to learn the true meaning of “cry it out” until she gets back on track because I cannot be a milk bar for hours on end.
  • I’m getting excited about our annual June vacation, though it’s about 2 months away. Even if we don’t go into any Disney parks, I’ll be happy just being at the hotel. I want to chill by the pool all. day. long.
  • Alright, work to be done before going to class. I hope you all have a fantabulous Tuesday!

  1. April is fleeting! May is almost here. I am trying to get a few pounds off, too. Hopefully this new HRT will help to make this job a little easier. What I need to do is keep my radar tuned when the numbers on the scales move upward to put on the breaks and throw things in reverse to keep the numbers from climbing. That’s what I need to do first, but I somehow lose track of things over the winter. Oh well…there’s nothing like a good challenge, eh? I hope you have lots of fun in your upcoming get away. I can’t wait to hear, if the essential oils help with your allergies. Keep us posted. Thanks for visiting!

  2. April has flown by, hasn’t it? We have two weeks of class left, counting this one, then finals. The kiddos have til the end of May, well Turbo will be done June 2nd. How can it have gone by so fast?

  3. Have never watched Game of Thrones my daughter watches it though. Nothing wrong with letting a baby have a cry at times, sometimes they don’t know what they want and nothing you do settles them and that is very frustrating

  4. I just added game of thrones to my Amazon wish list! I’ve never watched the series, so i figured I’d read the book to see what all the fuss was about! I hope I love it!
