It’s amazing how time passes, and here I am, scrambling to get together yet another Random Tuesday Thoughts post!
For more Random Tuesday Thoughts, don’t forget to visit (and be Shocked!) Keely over at The Un-Mom.
Besides babysitting every night after I get out of the dreaded cubicle, I babysat Saturday night while the kids went out to socialize. They have a social life, moi, apparently, does not.
Monday threw me all off, because ‘Lil Moomette was under the weather with a tummy bug, and I again, babysat all day – and did loads of laundry, because DD26 didn’t bring any changes of clothes for the kidlet. My daughter’s hoping the kid doesn’t have Swine Flu – good grief, methinks – it’s just a Daycare bug, and besides, Slugger had it last week. Yes, I took care of him too. Granny Nurse Ratched.
So, now that the house is quiet, I’m scrambling to collect my thoughts. You think this post is boring so far? Stick around to the end, and it might be worth your while to get to the end. Good things happen to those who wait.
I try to follow all the advice of the best blogging pros out there – keep a notepad in the car, in my purse – write my thoughts down whenever I can. Actually, I have more pieces of paper with thoughts on them than I have time to upload posts.
Anyway, it’ll give my family something to wonder about if I ever kick the bucket on them, and they’ll find all the Random pieces of scribbled thoughts and think, man, she really was crazier than we thought!
Well, I took all those pieces of paper and organized them in the new INPlace System by Peter Walsh that I’m hosting a Giveaway that ends tonight – so don’t forget to check it out and enter.
I really made a lot of progress this week, and am busy posting all my favorite recipes from my co-workers and friends that I’ve collected over time. Every time I make these dishes, not only are they delicious, but it reminds me of the friends who’ve come and gone through my life, and the good times we had together – Joanne’s Strawberry Cake, Debbie’s Quiche (not quite yet, but watch for it). This way I get to share them with my readers, but the underlying fact is now I’ll know where to find them – ha!
It’s probably not a good time of year now that school is out and people are starting to go on vacation, but for those of you who are day-tripping and still hanging around to read my blog, I have some goodies in store for you!
I’m still celebrating the redesign and re-branding of merging my 3 blogs together. Blog and Web Designs by Shauna did a terrific job. All the Reviews and Giveaways are now listed here, in addition to my WAHM and blogging resources. Of course, my infamous Rants will now be found not only under my category heading, but also under the Friday Frustrations meme and Veranda Chit Chat category here.
Now, for the good part! Many of my readers know I closed my eBay Store and now sell on Bonanza. Bonanza is an awesome place to shop so I’d like to introduce you to some of my inventory. Be sure to check out my Vintage Sewing Patterns!
