Random Tuesday – Definitely feels like a random Tuesday!


  • This is a weird week because I have to take it day by day or I’ll be overwhelmed. I don’t know if my Friday plans will come to fruition: my uncle was supposed to get me a ticket to a concert but he’s leaving the security company he worked for. However, he figured they’d still honor it. If I can’t go, I guess I will be upset but only a little; Ash leaves very early Saturday morning and I feel a bit guilty coming in (probably) pretty late Friday night. On that note, we have two obligations Saturday: Isaac has a 12:15 flag game and Elliot, a 12:30 soccer game. Normally, they play at fields within close proximity to one another but not this week. So my plan is to get Ell to Meadows by 11:45, then drive across town for Isaac’s game, then once done, head back to my oldest. He claims he plays better without us watching anyway!
  • I swear, I live and die by my Google calendar these days. In some ways, it actually quells my anxiety about getting everything accomplished. I can really SEE where I need to be at almost all hours of the day so it’s not such a hazy mystery. I am trying to get my husband more in the habit of checking it too; we have a joint calendar but he is not good at looking at it.
  • Is it bad that I look forward to my husband going out of town? I talked about this before. I miss him terribly and hate being the sole parent for a week but I also breathe a little easier knowing I don’t have to care for both him AND the kids. It’s like one whole obligation is temporarily out of mind. And these days, when I am overbooked as it is, it’s really nice to have this free, open area of my brain for a little while. Until writing this, I didn’t have a way to define why it was a nice thing but there you go!
  • I’ve been having this issue where my left eye seems blurry – like there’s a little bit of film over it. For a while I was thinking it’s just allergies but now I am worried it may just be hereditary macular degeneration. I guess I’ll have to get to an eye doctor.
  • I cannot seem to get started today. Had a nice morning: enjoyed my coffee, got all ready, and took Isaac to XC. The morning is cool but not as cool as they have been – a little humid too. Hopefully tomorrow isn’t as bad, since I have to run nine miles. I am working my way through grading papers then I have to teach in a bit. I am sorta-kinda ready!
  • OK, I’m ACTUALLY going to tell you something random. The other evening around maybe 7 pm, I was washing dishes. Out the window from my kitchen sink, I can see my pool and backyard. I spotted something white moving jerkily right near the far side of the pool. I quickly realized that it looked like the mesh bag I use in my skimmer for stabilizer. When it kept moving, I soon realized a creature was in it! At first I thought something got trapped in it somehow but then I came to the conclusion that a pesky squirrel had stolen it right out of the skimmer! I usually put it in and leave a bit hanging out under the lid. I ran out, telling the creature to “git” and I saw that those thieves had clearly been trying to snag it for a while: it had some holes chewed in it from where it was outside the skimmer lid. Little rascals! I guess I’ll keep it entirely under the lid from now on!

  1. Hope you get your ticket for the concert. Fingers crossed.

    I hate it when hubby is gone.

    Yes go to the doctor. Eyes are precious.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. ♥

  2. I often think I can do without a calendar, but being ASD I find I need it. It is the small things in life that make the day feel better. And yes, they may be an inconvenience, but they make it special. Have a great, and RANDOM Tuesaday. Who knoows where it may lead . . . 🙂

  3. My Sweetie won’t even look at the paper calendar he requests i keep, so i get the frustrations of having it down and they still don’t know what’s up.

    Good luck Saturday and with the eye doc, i hope it’s nothing.

  4. I live by my Google calendar, too – now if only I could get two of my clients to use Google instead of Outlook… I have to remember to add things from Outlook to Google and vice versa, or something gets lost in the shuffle.

    I can 100% empathize about the hubby being home vs. not – my hubby has been on his summer break which finally ends tomorrow… Students are back tomorrow, which means he’ll be gone working during the week again, and I won’t be interrupted while I’m working and he’s not. 😉 When he’s home all the time, it’s like having an extra kid to take care of…heh!

    Definitely go get your eyes checked! Vision is something you don’t want to mess with.
