Random Tuesday

I'm doing the random, but may not get it linked up.  I am headed to a retreat for work.  We get to go to a lake and do some boating and on Wednesday I am going on a field trip to look at  a rock formation that is very prevalent.  Yes I am a rock geek.
  • Small boys boys come with two volumes--full on and the occasional whisper.
  • They also come with to speeds--full tilt and dead stop.
  • These things combined will cause mom to lose it when applied correctly.
  • I avoided vacuuming.  I'm not ready to make up with the vacuum.  But I think I'm going to have to.  I saw a dust rhino thinking about getting Bruiser last night.
  • I'm really not looking forward to any movies coming out this fall.
  • I am looking forward to what should be coming on DVD or pay per view.
  • Nick and I are not movie going people.  It costs way to much and with the small people in our house it's way easier to watch a DVD or pay per view.  We can pause it or stop it all together if needed.  Sure we miss out on the big screen experience, but I don't really miss it too much.  I always freeze in movie theaters anyway.
  • I'm ready to get back in to a routine.  After Labor Day things should settle down for us.  I'm really looking forward to the normalcy of a routine.
Well that covers my random for this week.  Go see Stacy for more random thoughts for Tuesday.



  1. I'm with you on the movie thing. I'm not good at being cold, but I'm also not much better to watch a movie with than a 5 year old. I just don't sit still very well. I like to be busy with a small project while watching a movie.

    Have fun on your retreat and enjoy the rock gawking!

  2. My son is going through a phase where "inside voice" means absolutely nothing to him. I've considered removing his voice box in his sleep. Wait, what? j/k. Happy Tuesday!

  3. I agree with you on the movies! Unless you already know that they are going to be amazing, it's not worth the money. Plus with redbox or netflix, you can start it WHEN you want to! Love that!

    Can you get one of those dog collars that shocks the dog when they bark and put it on kids??? I think I will invent one...that's totally humane and kind and stuff!

  4. I think small girls come with only two volumes as well. :-)

  5. I agree about the movies. On both parts...it's always TOO cold and it's so much easier to rent/pay-per-view with a little one.

  6. Yep by the time you pay for a babysitter and movie- it has to be a really good movie AND a better on the big screen movie to make it worth it.

  7. i agree about the movies we go on rare occasions with little man if it weren't for my regal reward card i never go with it i get free popcorn sometimes and free tickets to

  8. Im not a movie going person either. We love movies at home in the comfort of our own living room!
