Random Monday

In CategoryRandom Monday

beautiful Oregon sunset. yes, it really looked like this.

• Thanksgiving! How was it? I hope everyone had a good weekend with lots of pie and minimal family drama.

• Did you shop the Black Friday sales? What’d you get? Here in the wilds of Oregon there is not a lot of shopping, which is just as well, since all the commercials and One Day Only! coupons definitely would have had me on a 24 hour binge. What was your biggest score? Tell me, so I can feel the thrill of the kill vicariously.

• Every day for the last week, Big hollers down the stairs, “By the way! It’s raining!”

On the 8th day, I rolled my eyes and hollered back, “By the way, we’re in OREGON.”


• Speaking of homeschooling, I really must insist that everyone go read one of my favorite bloggers, Grit. She’s British. There’s extra cachet in having imaginary friends from other countries, don’t you think? I’m international that way. Check out this post, this one, and maybe this one, for starters.

• I got my hair cut last week, and also asked for a little brow-and-lip wax. When the girl was finished waxing, she asked me if I wanted her to get my chin while she was at it.

And then I died.

• Happy Monday, y’all! Link up your own Randomness below! Please. I need to take my mind off this Chin Situation.

    Well, did you have your chin done? And is it still raining?

    LOL@ Applie.

    I scored a 50″ teevee from Target and it only took 1-1/2 hours! I was home by 9:30pm. Loved it!!

    I didn’t have nearly enough pie. But the family drama was pretty minimal. I consider that a good trade.

    Also didn’t get any Black Friday shopping done since our main family get together was Friday. Doubt I missed much on that count either, even though I’m highly coveting a new camera. Soon…

    I had a dream last week that the hair growing out of my chin was several inches long and I went to school pick up with them sticking out in the wind.

    What does that mean?

    Deb! How have you been keeping GRIT a secret all this time?! Oh.my.word! I have just read the posts you recommended and I’m IN LOVE! Not that I’m giving up on you, dear – you are my favorite Yankee blogger and now she’s my favorite Brit! :^)

    And, by the way, are you on Facebook? I TOTALLY want to connect with you there if you are. I need more of your perspective in my life!

    I also just read Grit’s blog, and “mad as a bag of badgers” made me pee myself. True.

    Thanks for sharing! (I still love you best.)
