Random on Tuesday


These random thoughts are brought to you by me,with the kind support of Keely.  She'll be happy to support your random too.

I'm a single mom, Nick is in the field again.  He gets to check out an abandoned gold mine that the state just acquired the rights to.  It will be part of a historical site.  I'm kind of jealous.  He's having a great time and I'm home with the boys.  Of course I got to go school shopping today.  But I didn't shop for me(much).  And I can't drag Nick to the store without lots of kicking and screaming--some of it mine, most of it his.

Turbo starts school next Monday.  (Mom jumping up and down quietly in her room.)  He's less than excited.  I'm just hoping he gets on better with his teacher than last year. 

We succeeded in our wood hunt on Saturday.  Got five trees and a good half cord of wood.  Now we just have to do the same thing three more times.  Turbo was a great help and Bruiser loved being outside.  A friend went with us and watched Bruiser while I helped stack the wood in the trailer that Nick cut.  It all worked out really well.

The other big news is that I get officially older on Sunday.  Yep, it's my birthday.  According to my mother's math I'm 21.  I get to have two parties too.  One with friends and one with family.  Aren't I special?  Don't answer that.

We have been watching the Fraggles of Fraggle Rock.  I think I have about reached my limit with them.  I know the theme song by heart and the yesterday I was singing it while I was in the kitchen--Turbo said"Mom, you have been watching too much of the Fraggles I think."  Tell me about it kid.  But regular TV--nothing I want to watch with kids, that's for sure.  I may have to turn to Scooby Doo for something different.

 Go see Keely for other random to enjoy.  You like it I promise!


  1. That is so cool (not cool that you are a single mom) about the gold mine. Of course, I'd never go down but I'd do lots of research.

  2. Im a single mom right with ya...all week its just me and the girls. No relief except Friday night through Sunday morning!

  3. I LOVED Fraggle Rock when I was a kid!

  4. Happy almost Birthday. I'm a mostly single mama... hubby works from Noon till 11:00 or midnight every single day. SUCKY! Small business owners have to work so hard for no reward. Uggghhh we so wish he had a normal job. One guy that helps is at military training so he is working a little more then normal. SO can't wait till he comes back in a few weeks!

  5. I am jealous too! Yall have the neatest jobs ever, how cool is that to be investigating and old gold mine?!

    LOL! Happy the boy is going back to school! LOL!

    Happy 21st birthday!!!

    It is so hard to find thing that are actually sutible for kids. Even Scooby Doo gave my grandson (3) nighmares that ghosts were after him.
