Random Tuesday

I'm linking up with Stacy for some random fun!

My husband and I went camping this weekend.  We made the reservations a while back not knowing that it was going to be freezing!  It had been 70 2 days prior to our trip, and it was 70 by the time we got home after our trip, but we dealt with temps in the low 30's to low 40's.  But we stuck it out and ended up having fun and enjoying our time together.  This is our camper.

Yesterday at work, I was almost demolished by the screen I use to project.  I was pulling it down (gently as usual), and on side of it came crashing down breaking one of my lamp shades.  It was a near miss with my head!

Later, I had a student throw his binder and hit an innocent young lady in the head.  He also called me a very inappropriate name.  Soooo, I'm glad Monday is over.  Plus I started and ended my day with meetings.  Such a waste of time!
My husband and I have agreed NOT to purchase anything for Valentine's Day this year.  My DH thinks it could be a trap, but I'm serious.  Not a card, nor candy, nor a flower!  I'm not falling for Hallmark's hyped holiday.  This will be a first for us, though.  We have eaten at Whataburger in years past due to the extreme crowding at restaurants.  What are your plans?

And now...


That's it!  Have a geat week!

Random Tuesday

I'm linking up with Stacy for some random nonsense.

Have you ever had one of those days?  Yeah, you have.

Today wasn't really a typical "one of those days."  It started with a meeting with my boss first thing this morning.  It wasn't productive.  I'm so frustrated, angry, and unappreciated.  It set the tone for the whole day, and I can't shake the morose feeling I have.  I want to quit my job, but obviously, I can't.  The littlest thing at home made me cry. Thankfully, tomorrow is a new day.  I'll just get to some funnies to cheer both of us up (although some of them may have a sarcastic tone)!

And just because it's cute...
Have a great week!

Sunday Synopsis

The First Phone Call from HeavenThe First Phone Call from Heaven by Mitch Albom
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was amazing! Mitch Albom manages to write about a topic that many would consider "inspirational" that you almost forget the thematic implications of the topic.

Set in a small town in Michigan, this is the story of several townspeople who receive phone calls from their deceased friends and family. The town is suddenly thrust into the spotlight due to this divine miracle. But is it true? Is there a way to communicate with the other side of death? Or is it just an elaborate hoax? And will faith be completely destroyed if it is a hoax?

This is also the story of Sullivan Harding, a widower who returns to his hometown after being released from prison. His parents have been raising his son since the death of Sully's wife. Sully hasn't been contacted by his deceased wife... yet, and he is not convinced the phone calls are real. He wants to get to the bottom of this phenomenon.

This book is a page turner! You may forget that you're reading a novel about heaven and life after death. However, in the end, it will definitely make you think. Awesome book!

Random Tuesday

I'm linking up with Stacy for some random fun!

I finally got to see my daughter this past weekend.  I hadn't seen her since Christmas.  She moved to another big metropolis here in Texas to be near her boyfriend, so she's searching for a job.

Job hunting has sure changed since I was her age!  In some ways, I think it's easier because you can do most of it online, at home, in your pajamas.  In another way it's more difficult because there is so much competition due to the availability of qualified candidates.  We used to have to get out and pound the pavement in search of a job, and now it's all on the Internet!  Please pray she finds something soon.
I had so much fun going to Kirkland's with her and choosing some wall decor for her apartment.  My son said (via text), "Mom, you know we have one here," meaning  a Kirkland's near home.  I just told him it was more fun when there is another girl to go with!  Wouldn't you agree?  And my daughter is frugal, so everything was on clearance except for one item.  Good deals!

So... new topic, but old topic... my foot still has a small, broken, bone, and the ligaments are injured, but most important, there is fluid in the joint.  I'm on an anti-inflammatory that has some uncomfortable side effects.  I have to eat when I take it, and still, I notice some not-so-nice gastric side effects, ringing in the ears, difficulty with my sleep pattern, and I have to check my blood pressure while I'm on it.  This could last 2 to 4 more weeks.

And now, to brighter, happier, or at least funnier things:

This brings out the English teacher in me.

Double funny!

Isn't she (or he?) so pretty!?

Have a great week!
