It's Random and it's Tuesday

 Happy Tuesday and Random Tuesday Thoughts.

Wow!  The last two weeks have been so hectic!  Mostly good, some sad, but completely hectic.  First our daughter and her family lost one of their dogs, Homer.  He was a Korean meat dog that she saved from becoming food. 

He was an important part of our family, and they are really struggling, especially our daughter because she saw it happen.  He was hit by a car in a parking lot at one of Austin's many trails.  

Shortly after that, we went to Austin to help them move into their new home, and our precious grandbaby started walking about the same time.  She's going to keep them on their toes.

After returning, I had to take mom to the Dr.  She is still having issues with the wounds on her leg and hip which they think is a rare disease called Pyoderma Gangrenosum.  The Dr. said they may never go away.  We will just hope to get them to a manageable level.  And her Alzheimer's is getting more noticeable.

Ripley's near Dallas

Then, my twins celebrated their 25th birthday which meant a trip to Dallas so we could be together.   We went to Ripley's Believe it or Not and the Magical Mirror Maze as well as dinner out a couple of times.  Let's not forget presents and cake, too, It was a super fun trip, but a lot of time in the car again. 

And I have a scrapbook retreat coming up this weekend (another 4 hours in the car each way) that I have got to pack and organize for, but what is going to make it more difficult is I have a broken finger.  It happened the day we went up to Austin.  When we got back a few days later, I had it x-rayed.  It was a small distal phalangeal fracture.  But... I'm hard-headed and wasn't wearing my splint, and I  injured it worse. Now I have a mallet fracture.  The bone broke where the tendon attaches. This isn't my hand, but it looks exactly like this but more swollen.  And it hurts!

  I have to wear a splint 24/7 for six weeks to see if it heals. This is going to make scrapbooking more difficult,  but I'm not giving up!  And all this  is happening while starting a new medication for which I seem to have most, if not all, of the possible side effects!

And now...

This is true more than ever now!  Fingers, shoulders, eyes, aches and pains!

It's hot and getting hotter here!


Can't get much dumber than this!

This cracked me up!


And last, but not least...

Have a great week!


  1. The post was great and the granddaughter is priceless. Glad you were there to see her walk. My parts are wearing out also:-(

  2. So sorry about Homer. So sad.

    Your grand is adorable and yes they are hard to keep up with when they start walking. Let the fun begin.

    Sorry about your finger. I hope it heals.

    Love all the funnies. I laughed out loud with the mascara one.

  5. Ohhhh no! I'm so sorry about Homer. That is so so sad!!

    Wow! You did a lot of (fun) traveling! So many awesome things you got to do - and celebrating the twins' 25th birthday, how cool is that? What's not cool, however, is your broken finger! GAH! I'm so sorry you're having to deal with that - hopefully you were still able to enjoy scrapbooking!
