Random Tuesday

It's time for another round of Random Tuesday with Stacy.
What's your random?

My daughter left for England last Wednesday, so it's been a week.  I'm used to not seeing her daily or even weekly, but usually at least twice during a semester.  That isn't going to happen this semester unless I take a trip "across the pond" to see my dear one.  Can I make it happen?  To see this face?  You bet I can!

She got to see Willie from Duck Dynasty at the airport.  She thought that was pretty cool.

Do any of you have any experience with overseas travel?  How many days do I need in a row in order to make it worth its while?  My husband actually has relatives in England, so we probably wouldn't even need a hotel, at least not for every night.  Any suggestions or thoughts?

So my darling is calling this lovely place home for the next four months.  The college owns two Victorian houses that they use as dorms for the study abroad students.

Each house has four floors, and each floor has a kitchen, bathroom, and 2-4 bedrooms.  She is living in the basement room which looks out onto the back garden.  She has one roommate and two other floor mates.  They share a bathroom and kitchen, the four of them.  And she likes her new roommate. I don't believe they had ever met before the started this study abroad together, but I'm sure they'll be great friends for a long time to come. They have each class together except for one.  Built-in study buddies!

As for me, I sat in a boring "Professional Development" today.  I learned... absolutely nothing. The sessions didn't provide what they were advertised to teach.  Typical.  I would MUCH rather have been teaching, but the students were off for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  I think teachers should have been off school, too.

Oh!  I get to go on another scrapbook weekend pretty soon.  I'm excited.  It's about a three hour drive from here to Temple, Texas.  It's call Rockin R Retreats.  You should check it out!  Pretty nice!

And I have officially watched all ten seasons of Criminal Minds in the last 7 months.  Are the regular episodes the 11th season, or is it just not out on Netflix yet?  I'll have to find out.  I LOVE this show!  What would you recommend I watch next?  I've seen every Law & Order,  L&O SVU, Breaking Bad, Lost, and a few others.  I need some entertainment!  LOL Suggestions?

How about I watch a few cute cat videos like this one?

Have a great week, everyone!


  1. In 2001, we went to both London and Paris. We spent three days in each and to me, that was enough time. I think if I went back, though, maybe four, just to be sure to see it all.

  2. It's so fluffy!!!! :)

    I've never been across the pond, so I cannot help you there. But I easily get addicted to TV/Netflix so I can recommend a new obsession if you like crime drama: the documentary How To Make a Murderer will have you screaming at the TV and pulling your hair out likely.. but it is good.
    If you like politics, I really liked House of Cards with Kevin Spacey. I knew next to nothing about American politics, so I find it quite interesting. And of course his performance is off the charts.


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
