It’s time to get random over at Keely’s place with Random Tuesday Thoughts. Jump right in and get random with me or head over the The Un-Mom and read up on who else is getting random this week.
Monty Python’s SpamALot is coming to Cologne. I’m not a MP person but I can’t even begin to imagine what this must sound like in German. New York! London! And Koln!
I’m preparing to talk myself into potty training my almost three year old. Someone please talk me out of it because quite frankly, I really don’t want to do it.
Speaking of the Chick, she’s kicked up the nighttime waking full measure again. I would give anything to be able to figure out how to get her to sleep through the night. You name it, I’ve tried it. One year and one month later and I’m still doing multiple nighttime shuffles from my room to hers. I’ve somehow learned to make Permanent Sleep Deprivation work for me.
Who wants to read the news anymore? Yesterdays headlines were about water torture, kidnapped people and a plane hijacking. Please just let me crawl back into my happy place and disappear. I liked it much better when I didn’t have any idea what was going on.
Our satellite is broken (yet again) and it seems it isn’t going to be fixed. We were told that we need a new dish. No way am I chunking out that much change for the next 10 months just to have tv. I’ve got the internet, it’s all I need.
I would like to storm my mothers doctors office and whip them into shape. It’s been a month since her surgery and has she started her treatment yet for cancer? No. It’s starting to really tick me off. It should not be so hard to get help.
The neighbors across the street are having a new roof put on. Joy! I listen to them pounding and throwing things all day. Not to mention disrupting nap time. And getting out of the driveway is super duper simple with their big truck parked right across from my driveway. A ten point turn should do it. (okay whine done)
Yesterday I was 25 minutes early to pick up Boo from school (a weird quirk of mine) so the Chick and I walked along the sports field of the school. Several interesting things happened. One – the Bitburger (that would be BEER truck) was parked in front of the school. And yes, school adult socials do include beer and a lot of wine. The Germans may have the advantage on that one. Two – There was also a man laying in the sun on the field (old creepy guy, no shirt, you get the picture) where not far away the kids were having gym class, playing cricket (yes British sports at an American international school). Chick and I were sitting on a bench and I happened to turn at the same time Creepy Old Guy gets up, walks to the fence and…pees. Yep just right there on the sports field in plain view. To see kids do this is gross and yet so completely commonplace here. But an adult? Yeah, that was a first.
Think good thoughts today. Life could get very interesting around here. Let’s hope. And nope, I’m not going to say anymore about it.
I’m also blogging over at my other place today, Venus vs Mars. So please come by and check it out. It’s a little piece about vacations. Here tomorrow I have Sign Language Wednesday, it’s week two.
What random thoughts do you have? Feel free to leave them here or over at The Un-Mom today!
