Get Random and Have Some Coffee

I'm linking up with Stacy with my Random Tuesday Thoughts.

Metallic nail polish... pretty?  Or not?  I thought it was pretty, but I will never wear it again because it doesn't come off!  I rubbed and rubbed with acetone, about three times the amount I usually use, and I still have remnants of gold on my toes.   Ugh!  Whyyyyyy?
I was watching Shots Fired, and I kept telling myself the Governor seemed familiar.  About the third episode in, I thought, "She looks a lot like Helen Hunt!"  Lo and behold, I checked IMDB, and it IS Helen Hunt.  She's changed a lot!  I don't mean in a bad way.  Her demeanor, for example.  I guess she's grown up and older like the rest of us.  But it doesn't seem like that long ago that I used to watch her in Mad About You (1992-1999). Time flies!

My husband and I just celebrated our 12th anniversary (2nd marriage for both of us). Instead of doing something romantic, we spend the weekend driving to Abilene with a U-Haul to help my daughter move all of her heavy items out of her house.  She would continue living in the house, but she is only going to be there one more semester, and the house requires a year's lease.  So we went up Sunday (our actual anniversary) and back today.  6 1/2 hours each way.  Typical "parent" holiday!

Back to work tomorrow.  2 1/2 more school days then a teacher workday on Friday.  I think it's pretty stupid to have a 2 1/2 slash 3 1/2 day week after Memorial Day when most of the other schools here in our area are out.  We've finished exams.  What am I supposed to do with them?  I have this same problem every year.

And now... Coffee Chat

Today she says,
Get something off your chest.   No, don't throw your bra at me: unless it's after 7 pm and you're home for the evening, because Yes! 
I think I just basically did that already!  No, not throw my bra at the computer, but got stuff on my chest.  Here goes more, though!

My son (who will be 21 in 4 weeks) and his childhood friend (who is already 21) are going on a road trip next Friday.  They have a motel reserved for the night, and they are going to the Rangers/Astros baseball game.  I remember being younger when I went on my first road trip, but things have changed.  The world is even more cruel now, and the drinking age was 18 when I was growing up.  I'm a little nervous, but I have to say, I trust them both.  My daughter, his twin, has been all over Europe on her own, so if she can handle that, he can handle two days 4 hours from home, right?

I still don't want to go to work tomorrow!!!

  1. Oh, wow, that's quite a drive to move stuff! The things parents do for their kids.... :)
    Happy anniversary! Here's wishing you many more great years together.

  2. Oh my gosh, I loved Mad About You!! Great show.

    Happy Anniversary!! Hopefully you get some time to celebrate proper. And instead of work, you should definitely get extra time in the ball pool!! LOL

    I am pretty sure I'd be nervous about a first trip away from home. I can remember going to camp and such when I was 15 -- but there was obviously lots of supervision. I don't think I had my first actual AWAY from adults trip until about 16, when a bunch of us went camping at a provincial park. Which I am pretty sure I would NOT let my own two daughters do now! ha. funny that.


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