A Little Random

I'm linking up with Stacy today.

I know I'm not the only one who is sick of all the debate, divisiveness, and back-and-forth political bickering we've got going on in the US right now.  I think maybe we could solve it like our parents did long ago when we fought with our brothers and sisters.  If you shared a room with a sibling, and you couldn't get along, your parents would just put a line down the middle of the room, and you both had to stay on your own side.  You could do whatever you wanted as long as you stayed on your side of the room and didn't argue.
"Their solution was to lay a jump rope on the floor to divide their bedroom in half." (This Room is Mine, by Betty Ren Wright.)
 How about we just divide the country in half and let each of the two sides take half the country and do things their way?  Each side could make their own rules.  Perhaps it could solve it.  Nah, just kidding... sort of.

I finally watched the women's gymnastics Olympic trials from July 8 and 10.  It's by far my favorite Olympic event, and I can't wait for competition to start August 5.  I think the chosen team is going to be phenomenal!


Aly Raisman's first tumbling pass earned her gold last time and will hopefully do the same this year.

I've also been watching Scandal and loving it, until the fifth season.  Now it just seems like a mirror of real life.  Planned Parenthood as the focus of a bill, a President's wife running for President, gun violence issues, entitlement, free college, gay marriage, and education bills.  I liked the first four seasons so much because it was an escape!  Now it's just... preachy, regardless of your position on any issue.

Before I go, I want to share a video I saw on Facebook that made me smile.  There was an abandoned puppy, soooo cute, that was nursed to health by a momma cat.  Watch!  Betcha smile!



And that's a wrap!

That is such a brilliant idea!! But then again, wouldn't that be full circle with the North vs. the South - depending on how they divide the country in half, it'd be North vs. South or East vs. West... or maybe they could divide it in quarters... ;) Funny about putting a line down the middle to keep siblings from fighting...the hubby divided the coffee table we had in PA with electrical tape to keep the two kids from squabbling about their personal space with each other. ;)

I'm a fan of Scandal, too - and yeah, the 5th season's a little 'meh'...I think they were trying too hard to mirror real life events, but I heard a rumor next season is supposed to rock it like it was before. Here's hoping!

Have a great week! Thanks for rockin' the random! :)
