Random Tuesday Thoughts

randomtuesday

I love to respond personally to people’s comments, but so many of you haven’t set your account up properly so I can do that. Read my earlier post on how to fix this, please? I don’t want to seem like I’m ignoring you!

Once I got to ride on a plane that had capacity for 12 people. There was one seat on each side of the plane, with an aisle so little you had to sashay sideways down the teensy corridor to get to your seat. And then you spent the whole flight with your head sideways because the ceiling curved around your head starting just above shoulder level. The co-pilot handed out earplugs to the passengers, which did not block out anywhere near enough of the noise. I was deaf for 2 days after getting off that plane.

I’ve never diagrammed a sentence.

As a kid, I had a basement bedroom. I wanted a fireman’s pole from the family room to the basement SO BADLY.

I used to have really bad eyes, like legally blind bad eyes. I got Lasik a few years back, and now I get to participate in the daily miracle of waking up and being able to *see*.

I've been busy this weekend. My best friend delivered her sweet baby girl, and named me the godmother. Wow. And she sure is a cutie! I was honored to be her doula, and watch the miracle of birth once again.

My girls made me breakfast on Mother's Day... at 5:00pm. :)

Mmm...Breakfast for dinner kicks ass!

I can't tell you how many times I've written out email responses to people from comments only to look up and see the dreaded no-reply blogger address! Frustrating!

Lisa Brandos said...

I hated diagramming sentences. I don't even remember how.

Kat said...

Brinner (Breakfast for Dinner)- is the best meal ever. EVER.

Kristina P. said...

You couldn't pay me to ride in small plane like that. I really don't like to fly, but especially in those planes, that are actually dangerous!

shopannies said...

what a great honor and the fireman pole sounds great

kyooty said...

A god mother and a doula! what an honor. What does diagramming a sentence mean?

BeautifulWreck said...

Totally surprised you have never diagrammed a sentence! WOW! Not that you have missed anything tho. I just had to do it for years and years in English class growing up.

Amy said...

It seems that is all we did was diagram sentences my senior year. What the heck would I use that for now?

Cameron said...

Breakfast for dinner is the best.

Happy Mother's Day and Happy RTT!

Moannie said...

What have I missed,never knowing what a diagrammed sentence looks like?

SweetKooki said...

I envy you the miracle of waking up and being able to see. I haven't experienced that since second year high :(

Congratulations on being the godmother to your best friend's baby!

Your Dad probably had issues with a fireman's pole for different reasons. No dad wants a pole in his daughters room.

bassackwards mom said...

with ya on the eyes.... and my opto. says no to lasik for me... :( so - I wear my -9.75 prescription contacts and dont DARE wear my glasses in public.... I could burn ants with those things.

Keely said...

omg I totally want that daily miracle.

Congrats to your friend and you, godmother!

C.B. Jones said...

I enjoy my morning eye crust too much to get my vision fixed.

Cara said...

Breakfast for dinner is the best! Especially when it's made by your kids. Lucky mom!

Swoozie said...

Me? I love those little "Dash Seven" airplanes; they always seem super fun to me. But then my dad is an airplane pilot and I've been flying in planes since I was 2 days old so guess I'm used to the "thrill". Hee! Hee!

CONGRATS on the doula experience, on your friend's healthy child AND on your Godmothery-ness! Dang girl! you've been busy......

Casey said...

Oh, congrats on the new baby and your position of honor!

Are you talking about me cause I think I have my blogger ID setup so you can email me. Email me and let me know if you can't. HAhahahaa.

Grant said...

As godmother, who are you designating your cappo and what rival gang gets rubbed out first?

Amy said...

I think I would have been a little scared on that plane for sure. I think I should ask my husband for a fireman's pole to our basements sounds fun. Congrats to your friend and being a Godmother. Have a great day.

Caitlin said...

Sooo jealous of being able to see. I just got the contacts you leave in for three months at a time (overnight and all) and am now privy to the same miracle. =]

Bex said...

how random! how tuesday!

that fireman's pole sounds cool but imagine the trouble you might have gotten into in your older, more wild days. or are you the one out of twenty who was miraculously born without wild oats to sew?

GreenJello said...

I was actually a very serious, studious, hard working teen. I graduated and moved out of the house when I was 17. I never really have been the wild type...used to have lots of fun, but never drank or used any drugs or whatever. I was a Good Girl. :)

Jennifer said...

I'm so jealous of the Lasik. I went to 3-4 different doctors for consulatations for it, mmmm... 7-8 years ago, and I wasn't a candidate. I was (and am still!) seriously bummed!
It would be so exciting to wake up and be able to see.

Frogs in my formula said...

You got lasik and you're ok? That's all I needed to hear. My eye dr. said I am a perfect candidate but he's in support of glasses instead. I too want the gift of waking up and being able to see!!! It must be glorious.

K said...

I have really bad eyes. Last eye appointment I learned I'm actually too bad to have eye surgery (I wear a +6.00). Thank God for contacts.

Breakfast for dinner sounds good to me.

Maternal Mirth said...

Damn ... now I am going to need to call the architect back up and tell him to put in a fireman's pole. Or a slide. A slide would be AWESOME. Ooooh! And a ball pit!

otin said...

You are pretty random yourself! I love jumping from topic to topic, keep em' guessing LOL!

Yaya said...

Congrats GodMommy!

Yes, I wish everyone had their email set up to their profile.

Jaime said...

diagramming sentences? where did that come from? i haven't done that since like 4th grade

Sprite's Keeper said...

Some doctors tell me I'm the perfect candidate for Lasik, some say not to even consider it. I always go for the safe call, so I'll keep feeling around for my glasses until they cure nearsightedness permanently.

Heather said...

That plane story reminds me of my FIL taking one of those puddle jumpers in Hawaii and when he asked the guy at the desk before boarding if the plane was safe the guy actually shrugged and said "eh" (like, so/so). what an amazing thing to see your godchild born...what a gift! Enjoy your new title and getting to know her.

ArtSnark said...

Rode a plane like that in Germany once. They kept us full of good free beer & wine so no one cared. Was a race for the loo when the plane landed tho!

Congrats on the godchild!

Debbie said...

I want Lasik.

I most likely won't get it. I'm askeered and I think I'm too old.

buzzinby.com said...

Let me try this again and see if I can get my comment to link back to me so you know who I am.

Ms. Salti said...

I want to get my eyes done! Congrats to your friend and being named a Godmother!

Margo said...

I would love one of those fireman poles. Glad the lasik worked so well for you... that's got to be a great feeling. Enjoyed your randomness. Thanks for your dream reference info you posted over at my place!
