Random Tuesday Thoughts - the short version

Here's my two cents worth of random. Read more at The UnMom.
  • My oldest boy brought a book home yesterday titled "How Big is It?".... what is it with boys and size concerns? The book is about large structures, bodies of water, man made items, etc. Anyway, it made me giggle when he told me what he was reading for fun yesterday.

  • My favorite snack IS yogurt and granola... and that catchy tune from the CD I have by the Imagination Movers doesn't help my cravings... I LOVE vanilla yogurt with bare naked granola... think I'll have some in a second.

  • We're having potato soup for dinner with the potatoes and onions we have leftover from the local organic produce delivery we received.

  • It's overcast and random rain today, and I'm a little down about it. It really does affect my senses, I need to do yoga. I may do that before yogurt and granola.

  • I'm sad for Maddie's family, and for Thalon's family. Read more HERE. I can't help but feel like I know them after following their blogs. That link has built in links so you can show some love if you want too.

  • A close friend of mine sent me a message today, it's her birthday and her mom tried to commit suicide. I wish I could hug them both today. Her mom is going to be ok, physically, but I'm praying that emotionally she'll move past her depression soon. Also praying that my friend can pull off some happiness on her special today in spite of the situation.

  • I just realized that my RTT turned into a downer, posting two sad things in a row - not intentional. Just reality. I don't believe in faking it, sadness doesn't make me weak - faking it does. I'm sad for several reasons today, and still fully aware that my life is full of blessings.

  • My toddler literally grew over the weekend, taller and wiser. His vocabulary is starting to really grow into "kid" vocabulary, and it's just an amazing thing to witness.

  • I'm getting ready to look for summer vacation rentals for our annual trip to the beach. The after that, going to look for fall rentals for when we hope to visit family out of state!

  • Dove Bliss RULZ.

  • I have went to the grocery store two times in the past two days, for random little stuff. I NEVER do that, I'm pretty structured with shopping and like to do it all at once and stockpile. These two trips were specifically for one thing... dish washing detergent, and blame if I didn't successfully forget it AGAIN today. I feel like the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz... if I only had a brain!

You can't fully appreciate what you have unless you experience sadness and grief in your life.

Hey there, I'm a frugal mom too, well trying to be. Having coupon anxiety dreams though, guess it's a side effect. cute site.

GreenJello... I lost my brother (1.5 years ago - he was 39, it was unexpected) and my stepmom 18 months apart, but could NEVER imagine the loss of a child. I watched my parents grieve... and that kills me more then my own grief.

Ugh! This past week had me running to the grocery store more then my usual "One Trip A Week Only" as well. I hate when that happens!
Love your Randomness! Have a great Tuesday evening!

potato soup sounds great and Ido wish this overcast would leave and the sun would come out soon

Julie@Momspective said...

HAHAHAHAHA! That is classic randomness! Dove Bliss totally rules, I've been eating that all week!

I've been sobbing for two days over the many posts for Maddie and Thalon. It just makes me sick to imagine, but I can't help but think about it.

I *hate* forgetting what I was going to get at the grocery store. I mean, it's right across the street, but still.

I always get Imagination Mover song stuck in my head!

These sad things have also helped me to realize the good things in my life. I wish I could do something for those families!
