Random Thoughts Thursday


If you're new to Random Thoughts Thursday, click here for details!


Life has become so much more insane the past couple of weeks.  I started my job, which means I'm gone all morning Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.  It's amazing how cutting just those few hours out has made my craziness even more crazy.

We went to Parent/Teacher Conferences for Vicki tonight.  We talked to her four core teachers (science, social studies, language arts, and math), and every single one of them commented on how she's "good at advocating for herself in class".  Basically, what that means, is that my daughter is Hermione.  It's fitting.

Less than a week until Halloween, and it's entirely possible that I may not have even begun working on the girls' costumes.  Never mind that we have a Halloween party to go to on Saturday.  Good times.

I'm grateful that Lexi chose to be a viking.  Horned hat and brown dress, and she's good to go.

Now, anyone know how to make a volcano costume in less than two days?

We finally got our print from the family pictures we took this summer!  I can't wait to get it framed!

On Saturday we went to the corn maze with our good friends, and afterward we went to the pumpkin patch.  We told the girls they could pick any pumpkin they wanted, as long as they could carry it.  The one Vicki chose weighed 33 lbs.  It may have taken her 20 minutes to cover the ground it took every one else five minutes to cover, but goshdarnit, she carried that pumpkin.

After watching the Presidential debate Monday night, Ellie told Chris she plans to be the first female President.  And the first thing she plans to do is paint the White House purple.

Your turn!

  1. Wouldn't it be cool if you could actually put baking soda and red vinegar in the volcano so that lava comes frothing out? I think I might have to call dibs on volcano for next year.

  2. If more beautiful snow is needed for your wall, how about letting an artist paint it for you. This tranquil picture, by American painter at the turn of the 20th century, John Henry Twachtman, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8DP7S7 , is an example of many others to be found at wahooart.com that can be ordered online from as a canvas print of any size to be delivered to your door.

  3. Hmmmmm....I'm trying to decide between more beautiful snow on my wall or a purple white house. It is a tough call.

  4. Now I'd like to know what I said that made Mr. scott davidson up there think I'd like more beautiful snow on my wall. Or any beautiful snow on my wall, for that matter.

  5. That is the most random spam I have ever seen. I did always think your walls needed more beautiful snow.
