Random Up!


If it’s Tuesday this must be Random Tuesday Thoughts. It used to be brought to you by Keely at The Un-Mom but she’s taking a hiatus. Okay, it’s been a really long hiatus but Random Tuesdays still rock on with help from Stacy.


Most of the time when I do our big grocery shopping my husband comes with me. He likes to cook so he will look for certain ingredients etc. When I shop alone I just go through my list tossing items into the cart as I go. He is an “arranger”. As I throw stuff in and start walking he is walking alonside the cart “arranging” everything. I think it’s because he is an engineer and he likes everything in order. Me, not so much. Our son is sooo much like him and he is a little “Engineer in Training”. Last week we were trying to combine errands so he dropped me off at the store and took J-Man to get a haircut. I did my usual speed through my list, tossing items in willy-nilly. By the time they got to the store my cart was overflowing and I was looking for space to put things. They stood there looking at the cart and the little EIT noticed the problem right away. There was a big wasted space under the seat of the cart that they would’ve filled if they had been there to arrange everything. They had a stood there discussing what I had done wrong and how it could have been prevented. Maybe it is easier to shop alone. sigh.

Last night we received a big “care package” from our daughter in Disney World. The kids, okay, me too, had a great time opening it up and finding a little bit of Disney. She send J-man pins from all his favorite rides to add to his collection and a box of Mickey shortbread cookies. Sissy got jewelry and a wallet and cell phone case. I have a lovely new throw that the kids and the cat totally took over. It is soooo soft.

 Don’t forget to join us for What The Hell Wednesday tomorrow!

  1. Heh, I had to do a double-take when I glanced down at the picture of the kitty curled up on the throw when I read that Cissy sent a care package – I was trying to deduce how she sent you a cat with the throw until I read further. 😉 Funny how kids and pets take over those, isn’t it? 🙂

    I guess I must be an EIT, too – I like to arrange things in my shopping cart, too…I’m a little anal about it, too, sectioning things in the cart (like freezer/refrigerator stuff in the front, non-food stuff in the back). 🙂

    Cats have a knack for claiming the softest and/or cleanest things in the house to nap on…

    Snuffy looks so little on your blanket! And I know he is definitely not that little. Your blanket is really pretty. =)

    Following Stacy’s comment, how awesome would it be if she could have sent you a cat? I wonder what a Disney cat would be like. How great to get Disney care packages.
