I'm all sunshiney and happy and............RaNDoM
but today is overcast and gloomy and Trammell just pulled out of the driveway for college.
I didn't even get a picture of the loaded down car!
I'm feeling a little like Eyeore!
I'm sure I'll feel all better after a couple of cupcakes and coke and a visit to The Un Mom.
Keely knows where it's at and she lets us get all RaNDoM and everything. (Oh and she's redone her blog!)
So.........on with the show!
* Garrett and I had lunch at Chipotle yesterday.
G- "How's your salad? It doesn't look like it has very much salad dressing."
Me: "No it's fine. It's just buried under everything else."
G: "I don't like skanky salads."
Me: "Skanky salads"
G: "Yeah - ones that don't have enough dressing.
I like my salads like my girls - dressed from head to toe."
* What kind of family is this?
Overheard last night -
Parker: "Dad, I got a new razor today!"
Dad: "You got anew razor? Do you even need a razor?"
P: "Not really....(laughing).......It's for in case my face gets furry."
Dad: "Well........do you know how to use it?
Dad: "Okay.......well...........don't cut yourself."
We do our best to make puberty EASY!
* Yesterday was the first day of school.
Today was the first day of seminary. (early morning scripture study)
Here's Parker, bright eyed and bushy tailed,
having a delicious, nutrious breakfast just prior to our 5:45 departure!
I am such a good mom!
* It has been awesome to have all three boys home the last three weeks -
except for the 20 pairs of shoes piled in the laundry room.
We've had some great family time and a lot of laughs.
Well........there was one battle.
Over a shirt.
Trammell claims it was his shirt pre-mission.
Garrett claims that it doesn't matter who owned it previously, it's his now.
After listening to some heated debate,
I said nothing.
I got on the computer to search for a new one.
I don't blame them. It is a cool shirt - in a gay sort of way.
I'll just get another Ralph Lauren Patchwork Shirt online - like at Ebay or something.
Evidently, it's now "valuable" and "rare."
And you can't get another one............at any price.
I told them I would be happy to cut it in half and they could each have half.
Who would even notice? How do they think it got to be patchwork to begin with?
* After replacing 1/2 of Trammell's wardrobe, taking him shopping for apartment stuff, buying him a laptop and paying his tuition, I thought it would be nice to give him a "going away" present for school.
We have a family tradition around here.
We love to make a big ole bowl of popcorn and sit around and watch movies or TV shows together.
And because I am green, politically correct and nutritionally minded...........
we threw away our air popper.
We only eat popcorn popped in buttery movie style grease with a stick of butter melted on top.
I sent him to school with this -
Oh yeah - I am even sending the bottle of buttery goodness!
Brian thought it was a little silly that I was giving Trammell a new one. He thought I should gift the new popper to myself and have Trammell take our old one.
Well, that's it!
That's all I got!
That and one more sleeping child who needs to get up and start packing for his college departure!
Have great Tuesday!
Have great Tuesday!
