The GOOD, the BAD and the UGLY!

What?  It's Tuesday?  Noooooooooooooo!!!!!
I need more time!
I'll stall!
Go on over to The Unmom and see Keely!
Come up with you own random and link up!
Everybody's doing it!

* Parker and Garrett are roaming around Orlando this week.
They aren't really roaming.
They're limited to the Disney properties.
Everyday is filled with lacrosse practice, lacrosse games and time at the parks.
However, yesterday's time was so limited, they only got in 2 rides on the Rock N' Roller Coaster at Hollywood Studios before they had to catch the shuttle back to their rooms.
The coach "locks"/tapes all the doors to the boys rooms each night around 11.
If he gets up in the morning and the tape is busted off your door - you're busted!
I love it!

* The boys are excited that it's going to be 72 degrees in Orlando today.
I'm excited because it's going to be 78 degrees right here in good ole Denver.
That's a far cry from last week's snow day!!!!

* My studly little brother had an extremely successful "Match Day" last week.
Match Day is when medical students find out IF/WHERE they "matched" to do their residency.
He matched at his first choice.
He is thrilled to spend the next three years in an ER residency in Chicago.

* Yesterday, in a list of things that I said I may or may not do this week, I wrote that I "may" eat nutriously.  I didn't have cookies for breakfast today.  I had pizza.  You decide.

* I'm feeling a little down.
Trammell's missionary companion in Cambodia had gallbladder surgery IN CAMBODIA!
Was that crazy?
But he was still in pain and having medical problems.
He went to Thailand and had surgery IN BANGKOK!
He still had medical issues and was diagnosed with a tropical disease.
They did an MRI and saw a spot on his liver which they would not be able to diagnose without more surgery.
They decided it would be best if he went home to get the medical treatment.
He arrived home in the United States late last night.
I feel so badly for him.
He wanted to stay but he was just too sick.
I'm feeling really sad for him and for his family and for the missionaries in Cambodia.

* I'm off to see this -

which some people might think is ugly but I think is way cool!  I can't wait!

Have a great Tuesday!
Oh and.........if you know me and were proud of my skipping the cookies for breakfast, I'll admit, I had the pizza because we're probably stopping on the way to the museum for donuts.  I was just trying to strike a balance!

My son Austin went to the Bodies exhibit last year. He loved it. Then he went with our nephew and his wife and she passed out!

Yikes- that is ugly. Orlando sounds fun.
Have a great RTT.

Guymons said...

tapes the door shut- brillant idea..haha.
hope they get to do more rollercoaster riding.
sorry about the sick missionary, that is sad.
have a fun day

Jayme said...

Oh I'm dying to see that exhibit!

Christy said...

I've heard that Bodies thing is pretty cool...it came here, but I skipped out on it, lol. I hope your son's missionary partner gets the care he needs and gets better soon.

oh, I so know you don't want to hear this...but they taped our doors on band trips in high school (um, and college, lol) and we perfected opening the door without breaking the tape and then securing it back on the way in. but it did take talent, lol!

Mama Badger said...

Poor kid. To have surgery is rough enough, but to do it in a foreign country where you may or may not really understand what they're telling you? Sucks.

Terra H. said...

I went to the Bodies exhibit in St. Louis last year. It was definitely interesting and educational. Happy RTT.

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

Striking a balance, lol! I had a peanut butter bar and coffee for breakfast. Yummy.

I love the tape on the doors. That's brilliant!

Everyday Goddess said...

Awesome random!

Pizza has all the food groups in my opinion. It counts for the good. ~ smiles ~

Beta Dad said...

The tape idea is great. I would have been busted so many times on school trips had our chaperones been that smart. Oh, wait. I did get busted anyway.

I remember match day from my wife's med school. CRAZY.

Bodies is awesome. Enjoy!

Is the human body thing was worth the extra $$$? We're coming to the museum on Saturday, but we told the kids we weren't forking out the extra cash for that exhibit, considering we'll have gone to an Avs game the night before and payed for a hotel too. But if it's really, REALLY great, I might give in.

Also, an inspirational story of a sick missionary coming home. I had a friend who had to come home temporarily for a surgery and he was SO disappointed. While he was home, he baptized his own dad! So, let's hope for a similar hidden blessing. I really do hope all will be well.

The body's exhibit is in Denver right now? Was it AMAZING? I want to see it so bad. But I haven't ever had it come anywhere close. :(

Small Town Mommy said...

Thank goodness that Trammell's companion came home. I am not sure that Cambodia and Thailand are the places to have major surgery. I ould find it scary. Orlando sounds awesome. What a great way to travel.
