Randomish Tuesday

So it's Tuesday and time to get all random:
  • Now that we have a new house the joy of packing the old one up has arrived. Thankfully, I have until next June to do it all so I can do it gradually. Not a fan of the packing.  Nick keeps threatening a small house fire and we start over.
  • Parent Teacher conferences are this week.  This will be the first year that I think Turbo will get a fairly good review.  He loves High School. And his grades reflect that. The kid has the best grades he's ever had. 
  • Bruiser has started reading the Harry Potter series by himself.  I had read the first two books out loud to him a couple years ago.  This year he needed a book to read at school, what they called a Good Fit Book.  He took the first Harry Potter book and is over halfway through it. I have a reader!
  • My friend got me several paint by numbers for my birthday.  Should be a fun way to pass the cold winter days.
  • Nick and I have been trying to get out of the slump we have been in for the last year or so.  It's a process to get out of a rut.  Date nights and trying to rediscover conversation that is not work oriented is helping.  However the up shot of our conversations has been we need to travel more.
Well that covers my attempt at random this week!


  1. We're trying to move as well but we have A LOT of our stuff already in storage. It's nice to have that aspect mostly done but at the same time, I am always finding something I need but is packed!

  2. It's so nice when kids hit their stride in school. Good luck on the move!

  3. One of the parts I hate about moving is the packing - unpacking is so much more fun, though I have to make time to finish unpacking here in our new house (um, yeah, so the move was 9 months ago and I *still* have boxes stacked in every room waiting for me to get motivated). ;) But I bet if we'd had time to move over a period of time like you guys get to, there wouldn't be as much to unpack right now. ;) Good luck with all that - I'm so very excited for you and can't wait to see more pictures!

    NICE on Bruiser reading the Harry Potter series by himself - nice to have a brainiac bookworm in the house! :)

    I ran across the paint-by-numbers coolness - got one for me and one for Princess Nagger. Looking forward to some fun winter creativity!


I love to get comments! They make my heart go pitter-pat! Go on comment--I'll do my best to go give your blog some love too!
