RANDOM, RaNDoM, Random!

It's everyone's FAVORITE day!

RANDOM THOUGHT TUESDAY with Keely at The Unmom/!

Here ya go - not that random - not that exciting.
Oh and Blogger is messin' up on the spacing!

*Did you know that LISTEN and SILENT have the exact same letters? Interesting! I learned that from the comics today.

*School starts in less than a week. Things will be pretty SILENT around here! And I’m not looking forward to it! Parker is in the family room reading All Quiet on the Western Front as I speak. Then he needs to type up his dialectic journal.

*Did you ever notice that “studying” is “student” and “dying” put together? I learned that on Facebook. Wow! I rely on such good sources for my education.

*If you can’t have chocolate cake for breakfast, may I suggest mashed potatoes and gravy? Scrumptious!

*I’m making cream puffs today- yummmmmm. I made the shells yesterday but I’m making the filling and assembling them this afternoon for a baby shower. Anyone want to guess how many I'll eat in the process?

*Tonight is email night! We get our weekly email from Trammell sometime between 10 pm and 2 am. I’m excited every Tuesday, but I am particularly excited because 12 new missionaries arrived last Wednesday and 12 missionaries left last Thursday, so Trammell was probably transferred AND probably has a new companion. Change is always exciting!

*Hmmm…….In my travels, I’ve noticed a few cars/vans that have little stickers, like Disney stickers, puppy stickers, “good job” stickers coating the inside of their back windows. Why? Do the parents figure that only the kids have too look through the stickered window? Are they thinking that it’s a good idea because it keeps the kids quiet? Are they thinking that a couple hours of scraping off Snow White and Cinderella is worth five minutes of quiet time? Just wondering.

*Oh, and lastly, my favorite Bonehead Brother got his Senior Pictures. Just when you are thinking of killing them, the photographer takes you in a dark room and plays a video of all 50 shots set to music. With Trammell, I just kept looking up at the ceiling so I wouldn't cry. With Garrett, I just let the tears roll. Yep, he saw me. Yep, I am totally sentimental about that kind of stuff. Yep, at the end of the year (or sooner, like today) I will say, "Good Riddance!" But I will cry too. I'll post some of the pics tomorrow.

In the ironies of all ironies I had chocolate cake for breakfast! Chocolate zucchini cake but chocolate cake nonetheless....

I love cream puffs. I use a filling that is vanilla (or chocolate) instant pudding whipped with heavy cream. Yum!

Enjoy your shower....

I'm so glad to know someone else who eats non-breakfast foods for breakfast. I had mac 'n' cheese for breakfast this morning!
