Random Tuesday and Coffee Chat

So it's Tuesday again.  Happens every week.  It;s one of my favorite weekly blog posts because I can be as random as I want to be,  Come and get random with Stacy Uncorked!
I am a Law and Order junkie!   I guess I was too busy raising kids and working when these shows first gained popularity because, until about a year ago, I had only seen a handful of episodes.  SVU is my favorite Law and Order, so I started watching from season 1 on Netflix and worked through the entire series, skipping over a few here and there that I'd already seen.  When I finished those, I started with the original L & O and have worked my way to season 11 so far.  I just can't help myself!  I'm not as fond of L & O Criminal Intent, so I may shift allegiance to Criminal Minds when I finish,
And seeing how I'm still recovering from shoulder surgery, I have a lot of time on my hands.  Speaking of my surgery, I had my first post-op appointment today.  I finally got a full explanation of the procedure.  I already knew about the impingement, osteoarthritis, and bone spur.  What I didn't have clear details about was a tear in a tendon which the  doctor diagnosed as a bicep rupture  (tendon, not muscle).  It had to be reconnected at the shoulder and may have been caused by the impingement.  I know!  Sounds scary, huh? I was hesitant about having the surgery in the first place, but knowing this would never have healed on its own and would continue to get worse makes the surgery worthwhile.

Today my heart felt real joy, in spite of my condition.  My son and daughter (they are twins who turned 19 4 days ago) both went to my Dr. appointment with me, then we went to get lunch,  We even watched a couple of episodes of Duck Dynasty together.  This evening, they went to a movie together... twin bonding.  Now that my daughter is usually 6 hours away at college, these special twin times don't happen often. It made my heart happy.


And now it is time for Coffee Chat, the last one until Fall begins, hosted by Time Out for Mom.
Rory Bore asks us what;s on ou summer fun list,  Here's mine!

I was in the hospital pregnant with my 3rd child (pre term labour risk at 22 weeks) for 6 straight weeks - on bed rest!! I did have a TV, but only about 5 channels and thank goodness one just happened to a station that was marathon Law and Order SVU!!! I think I saw them all. I've watched Criminal Minds for years because I read the original book about the Profiling Unit by John Douglas. It's good. Getting bit dark and creepy now for my taste.

I like your list!! A whole 3 1/2 days of creativity sounds wonderful!! I'd love to go to some writing type workshop.

Law & Order SVU is the hubby and my favorite from the set - and I LOVE Criminal Minds - I'm behind a season or two on that one, I need to see if Netflix has caught up yet, so I can catch up. ;)

I love that your twins are getting along! I hope as my minions get older they'll at least tolerate each other. It's a little harder with 5 year difference and Little Dude having joined our family when he was 3-1/2 and Princess Nagger 8-1/2. :)

LOVE your summer list! Here's hoping you'll have all of them checked off when coffee chat returns in the fall! ;)
