Totally Random

Link up with Stacy for some random Tuesday thoughts.

It is with a heavy heart that I express my deepest sympathy to the Santa Fe, Texas community after the most recent high school shooting.  This has hit close to home, both literally and figuratively, as Santa Fe is just 20 miles south of my home.  I did not know anyone personally affected by the tragedy, but friends and co-workers at my school cannot say the same.  An art teacher from a nearby district created this artwork to express her grief.  It will be used in fundraising efforts for Santa Fe ISD.  These are the two mascots:  The artist's, a gator (Dickinson) and an Indian (Santa Fe).  On each limb are initials of those who lost their lives.

John Barnes, the first officer on the scene is still in critical condition.  There is a GoFundMe account set up for him and his family.  I don't know for a fact that it is legitimate, but I sure hope so.  You never can tell these days.  Here is a list gathered by a local TV station of ways to help the victims of this shooting.

I can only focus on sadness for a short time before I go crazy, so I am going to be really random and move on to other topics.  Please don't see it as rude or unkind.  First, this is what my throat feels like right now.

I am going to try to go to the doctor tomorrow.  It's probably a run-of-the-mill viral infection, but better safe than sorry.  Eight days of school to go, and I get sick!  Murphy's Law!

I have to share this with you!  Have you ever heard of the Baby Mop?  First of all, can you imagine putting this on your baby?  Second, why didn't I think of this?

And what about this?  Half of the upper half of a man, minus the head.  It's called the Boyfriend Pillow.  It even comes with different colored shirts.  Isn't this creepy?

And check this out.  This is actual video footage of me reacting to a lizard!  Hahaha!

I hope you all have a good week.

  1. That Baby Mop is a genius idea! It is sad that so many shootings are happening these days, especially in schools. That artwork is beautiful and I love how it has the initials. Hope you feel better soon.

  2. The kitty getting freaked out by the lizard cracked me up! Oh, the baby mop outfit is hilarious and ingenious at the same time!! Hey, I say put the kid to work while he/she is on the floor. Of course, if you have pets especially the long haired ones might serve to do the same thing without the outfit or are they counterproductive? I say they shed more hair than you can keep up with, right? The artwork in remembrance of those who lost loved one in the recent Texas shooting is so sweet. My prayers to the community and to the officer in critical condition.

  3. There's also a version of the mop for your small dog, at least, i know a friend who joked about getting one for her Yorkie.

    You are right that sometimes we have to focus on the good and fun and happy things of this world, or we will simply go mad.
