Random Thoughts Tuesday


It's that time again!! Let the randomness begin!

  • I'm typing this as I sit on the front porch watching the clouds roll in. YEAH for rain! Last week was in the 100's almost every day, so this rain is much much hoped for. Darrell has been planting grass in our front yard so we need some rain to help the little sprouts grow too. You should see the little jig he does everytime he sees new sprouts on the ground. It's hysterical!

  • Speaking of Darrell, he's going to be having orthoscopic knee surgery in two weeks. It is anticipated that he will not be released to work for 8 weeks. Wow. That's a long time. Thank goodness he'll be getting paid a large percentage of his weekly pay while he's off work. I'm kind of glad that I have to go to work during that time, or we'd probably drive each other crazy, LOL!

  • This past Sunday we went out on the boat with a bunch of friends and family. Good good times, but I seriously look like a lobster. Still. When we got home from the lake, we walked into a hot, still house and immediately looked at each other and said, "Shit! There's no air!". The ac had gone out, so we all spent a lovely Sunday night already burning up from our sunburns, but also from having no ac. I took off work on Monday to deal with the situation, and luckily found a local company who came out right away. They had to replace the blower motor, which set me back a pretty penny, but it certainly could have been worse.

  • Since today was my first day for my work peeps to see my lovely red skin tone, I tried to refrain from being a smart ass. But by about the fifth time someone said, "Someone got some sun!", I had to really bite my tongue to not say, "Nope, it's just a new shade of paint I'm trying out. Wanted to see if I liked it before I painted the whole house. Here's your sign!" :)

  • I'm really happy these days. We've been going through some struggles in our marriage lately, but as of right now, I'm feeling pretty good about things. A lot of that may be chalked up to the fact that my hubby is currently in the kitchen whipping up some dinner. A man in the kitchen always makes me happy:)

  • I hope everyone else is having a good week as well. And if I don't get a chance to post again before this weekend... have a wonderful Fourth of July!

    8 weeks...yikes. My hubby tore BOTH ACLs a couple of years ago, had to have them both replaced and was laid up for the better part of 6 months. I was very happy to have been working during that time, no way we wouldn't have killed each other! Hope all goes well!

    Is that burn turning into a sexy tan yet or just peeling?

    No AC would be the death of me, I'm a huge baby when it's hot in the house.

    Happy to hear you're feeling pretty good about things lately. :)
