It’s Random Tuesday with Keely at the UnMom. If you have been living under a large rock (or in a Malibu beach house you don’t actually own) then get up and get over to The Un Mom and see what all this fuss is about.
I’m taking my parents to NYC in October to see the 9/11 memorial museum. My dad was a firefighter for 30 plus years so this is something pretty meaningful. Boo also learned about it at school so we thought it could be a valuable learning experience as well. I also haven’t been to that part of the city since it happened.
Have you seen the new digs for the kids at Boston University? Umm, hello! Can I go back to school with a view like that please?
The bus continues to be Boo’s highlight of school. Thankfully I haven’t seen Bus Mom since the breakfast of the first week. Wonder why…
We went to buy some pillowcases the other week (cause I couldn’t find any of ours among the hundreds of boxes in the basement). Have you seen how much sheets cost these days? On sale for $159.99 And we went to Kohls not Neiman Marcus! They had pillowcases for a whopping bargain of $49.99 for two! I’ll keep my sadly fraying red checked sheets thanks.
The other day Boo had on plaid shorts with a striped polo shirt. He picked them out. They did at least have consistent colors; orange and blue.
Whenever I try to log into our online banking it asks me a different security question. Like every single time. How many security questions could there possibly be??
I recently tried to inquire about some medical stuff for Boo by contacting insurance and the doctor. Talk about amazingly complicated. The best was when the doctor I talked to said she charges 3 grand and did I know that she doesn’t take any insurance? Check, next doctor please!
On the happy side, Chick will be getting speech therapy again. The best part is it’s through the state or county or whatever and is FREE. Have I mentioned that I love FREE?
Boo doesn’t want to be called Boo here anymore. Since I won’t use his real name here maybe you can all leave some suggestions for what we should call him. He’s a wicked smart, cute, train obsessed 7 year old. What do you think?
As each day goes by I find myself longing to be back in life as an expat. What is wrong with me?? (*please note that would be as an expat anywhere but in Germany which naturally is the one place that keeps offering Cycling Papa interviews)
I am playing a little game of telephone with Kim at Zook Book Nook called A Writer Mama’s Tale. The story will go from blog to blog with each person adding their own little 140 character version:
A Writer Mama’s Tale: The Seduction of Vintage Grapes (by Kim at Zook Book Nook)
A Writer Mama’s Tale: How It Began (by Blogging Mama)
Turn the page and read more with Missty at Life Is Good tomorrow.
That’s about all the random I’ve got for today. Go see Super Keely for more.
Be sure to stop by next week and you’ll be sure to find just as much Random.
*it’s not you it’s blogger. The last two lines of this post are really small and I can’t get it to fix.
