It’s Tuesday. Time to grab the neato button from Keely at the Un Mom and link it up. Be random or be yourself (for me there is no difference).
I would have thought I would be a tiny bit prepared for moving (I’ve only been dreaming of it forever). But the more I think about the things I’m going to have to figure out – renting a house, buying a car, car insurance, banking stuff (I’m going to have to be in charge of paying bills. Now that’s scary.) Finding a pediatrician, registering the kids for school, finding a new speech therapist for Chick. That’s not even half of it. Some of that has to be accomplished from thousands of miles away. There are plenty of things I haven’t even thought of yet. 32 days seems like it isn’t going to be long enough to get it all done.
Why is my son’s school so weird? For the end of year first grade party they’ve (and here I mean the psycho room mothers) have decided to load the kids on yet another bus and go to a pizza restaurant, learn how to make pizza and then eat it. Eh? What ever happened to cupcakes, chips and juice in the classroom thirty minutes before the end of school? Please tell me that I’m not the only one who finds this just slightly weird.
Time is short these days. I haven’t been able to stop by many of you to return the comment love. It may be like that for a bit. Hopefully a laptop will be waiting for me once I arrive at MIL’s house in July (we’re staying there for a bit) so I can still get online every now and then. They are saying 6 weeks till our stuff will arrive in the US. Mid August. Think about that for a minute. I have to fit everything we need for the six weeks into four suitcases (books, toys, clothes, essentials). It’s not the first time but I can’t say I’m looking forward to that. At least I only have to deal with one season: hot.
A plane disappeared over the ocean. Anyone else hear about that? Just up and disappeared. No one knows where it went. How does that happen?? Is it LOST come to life?
Do you ever get somewhat obsessed with new music? I can’t stop listening to an album I just bought. Repeatedly, even when I’m in trying to sleep.
We went on a river boat cruise on Sunday. I think I got eaten by every bug in Germany.
I like buddha statues. I have two small ivory ones we got in Taipei. I don’t know why I like them but I do.
Not much other random stuff to say today because it’s all too jumbled up. Have a Happy Random Tuesday. Go see Keely and see who else is playing along today.
