Random Thoughts Thursday

I'm in the process of redesigning the blog. Like it so far? I do.

However, in the process of all this redesigning (I'm also redoing Project 365) I somehow deleted my little blurb about myself from my profile. Whoops. Now no one will know anything about me; what a shame.

Today is our 11th wedding anniversary. I did a special post last year for #10, so I'll spare you all that, but I will just say that it's been a great 11 years.

It's also officially 15 years since I graduated from high school (I don't know why I remember this, except that I'm really good at remembering stupid stuff and not so great at remembering anything that's actually useful, but I'm pretty sure my graduation was June 16. Either that, or that's the day we left England for good.) I can't decide whether that makes me feel old or not. I know a lot of people reading this will have an opinion about that, though.

It's the middle of June and I'm wearing a sweatshirt. Not because I really like it, but because I'm freezing and refuse to turn on the heater. It's June, for crying out loud! Time to move on from the record rainfall, alrighty Mother Nature?

Suddenly there is only one more day left of school. How did that happen? Then I'll have a 3rd grader and a 5th grader, and I'm so not ready for that. 5th grade? That means middle school is right around the corner. Oy.

Last week Vicki's class had their "family life" discussion and video, and that evening we successfully embarrassed her at the dinner table. It was great.

Already the summer is going by too fast.

Why does safety have to be so expensive? We could feed our family for several weeks on what we spent for swimming lessons for the summer.

There are days when I feel guilty for letting Ellie and our babysitting friends watch videos all day, and there are days when I really wish I had so my house wouldn't look like three very small but very far-reaching tornadoes ripped through it.

However, my room and the kitchen are fairly clean, and the laundry is actually mostly done, so I don't feel too bad. Until I think about what the hall bathroom looks like. Then I feel really bad. So I don't think about it.

I know a lot of people like the random post idea and copy it to varying degrees. How about if I made Thursday an official Random Thoughts day and invited other people to join in and link their blogs to mine, so we could all read lots and lots of other people's crazy random thoughts? Would people actually participate?

I'll leave you today with this picture of Ellie enjoying the school talent show Monday night:

Clearly she loves Justin Bieber.


  1. Ooh, I am liking the new blog look. And you should definitely make Random Thoughts Thursday a feature and invite people to link up. I love it.

  2. Ditto to Angie. Ditto ditto ditto.

  3. I am on board for the random thoughts day. I will have to start carrying around a notebook to jot down all of my random thoughts. I look forward to Thursdays JUST to read your random thoughts!

  4. Oh so you are the one sending all of this rainy weather south. Well we are sick of it down here too.

    I am totally on board with the Random Thursday link up. Oh yea thoughts are supposed to be a part of that...I'll do my best.

  5. Well, since I already do a Random Friday (and have since before you started blogging... so there!!) I shall refrain from participating in Random Thursday. But I think you should make it official, yes. :)

    Love the look of the new blog. Super cute.

    And I also remember the weird little things. I can tell you what I wore on the first day of school for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. I can tell you my class schedule for every year of high school. I remember odd little conversations and notes written. But I can't for the life of me remember what time my kids get out of school, what day I am in charge of a play date, or even to contact the student loan people BEFORE the next payment is taken out. Grrrrr...
