Randoms on a Friday


So glad the weekend's here! I felt like doing some blogging today. It's bullet-point blogging (and during my lunch break), so I'm all over the place:
  • Let me just say I had NO idea when I recently posted an old cruise pic that this same cruise line had people stuck at sea. Oh. My. Goodness. Bad timing for me to post that, and I'm sure it appeared tacky.  I admit I don't watch or read the news most days (it's always so sad or bad).  Glad to hear these people are back safe and sound.  
  • I've been meaning to post pics of my niece and M from a couple of weeks ago.  I had to go out of town for a conference, so M stayed with my mom for a couple of days.  For lunch one day, they went and had lunch with my nieces at each of their schools!  I know M loved seeing them (and eating pizza and cookies)!

  • Speaking of M being at my mom's, I was recently reminded just how very blessed I am in that way.   A student was doing some basic research for a business plan and came up and asked me how much I typically paid for a babysitter.  I realized I'd NEVER paid anyone to sit for us - I've never needed to.  Our mothers are our sitters.  Even though they both live an hour away, they are our go-to people for babysitting.  They have no problem meeting us or even coming to get M whenever we need a sitter. Even when we travel or do something altogether as a family, our moms are very good to us - often encouraging us to "go out" and let them help as much as possible.  Of course we know our moms love us, but they have GREAT ways of showing it. M's school also occasionally does a Parents Night Out (including tonight, allowing parents to go on a Valentine's date) at no charge.  How did we get so lucky?
  • Speaking of Valentine's Day, ours was good.  M came home with a bag full of goodies.  I've discreetly stashed that thing away. We'll pick out a few to keep, but I'm giving the rest away.  Way. Too. Much.  I also ran my I HEART Running 5K after work.  I finished with my best time yet, 30:12, so I'm glad to see some improvement.  Now that I know I can do it in 30 minutes, I'm aiming for UNDER 30 next time.  We ate dinner at Panera last night.  Cousin J stopped by to give M her Valentine's gift - GiGi's cupcakes (so sweet).  Of course she brought a BOX of them -- SO bad for my waistline.  Not that I would ever eat any of M's cupcakes... :-)

Anyhoo, my plans for the weekend include DK's basketball game and a school event Saturday night. I'm finally in Book 5 of the God Don't Like Ugly series, so I hope to spend a lot of time with that, as well as watch last night's episode of Scandal.  Yes.

Have a good one, y'all! 



  1. Yes you are blessed! I am sure the Mr. and I would get out more if we didn't mind asking people to keep our kids

  2. Woohoo for finishing the 5k in awesome time!
