Thursday randomness

Today has been a busy day! I like busy days, because they seem to go faster.

Also, did you realize that if you type "today" too fast you can get "toady?"

Yes, this is going to be another post full of randomness. My brain is tired.

Yesterday I stopped by my doctor's office to have blood drawn for my appointment next week. We'll go over the results of both the bloodwork and the xrays from last week, and then see where to go from there. I'm expecting an MRI. One part of me doesn't want to bother, but a bigger part of me is just tired of being in so much pain. And it's getting worse. Last week, it was only really bad if I sat down for a while, like the lenght of dinner or a tv show. Now it's if I sit for just a few minutes. Makes my 45 minute commute to work just peachy....

Not a complaining post, though! I hate those!

After my appointment, the girls and I went to Emma's school for registration. She starts eighth grade on Monday! I can't believe she's that old. I certainly don't feel that old! She's had a good summer, though. She's had her rest time, her week at camp, her vacation to Florida. She was a little sad that yesterday was her last day babysitting Sophie all day, too, until the next school vacation. I think Nana misses her day with the girls, too. Sophie and Emma have gotten so close, though. Sophie simply adores her big sister! But I know she misses her Nana - the last time we were down there visiting she kept running up to her and hugging her legs and running off again.

My 15 year class reunion is in 9 days. I need a haircut and have no idea what I'm going to wear. It's at a casual restaurant on the lake, just a few minutes from our house. Our ten year reunion was horrible - it was at our old high school, in the cafeteria and gym. No air conditioning, and SUPER hot. This one is more planned out. I wonder if there will be anything besides dinner - at the last one there were photo boards from our high school days.

Today I signed up for My Fitness Pal. There's a website and iPhone app, and both are free to use. I forgot my lunch today and ate a cheeseburger and fries from the cafeteria and drank a soda - not such good choices. But I found one  awesome feature of this site - put nursing sessions on the food tracker, and it counts as negative calories! So I'm doing just fine today after all! I still want to make healthier food choices, but it's good to know I didn't blow my first day with one meal. Yet another benefit to breastfeeding until age 2!


  1. Love your randomness today! I'm feeling the same way! Only.... Connor isn't starting the 8th grade on Monday.... :)

    Congrats to Emma!

  2. Just wait - when he DOES get that far, it will seem like only a year or two has passed since he was this age :(

  3. I always love your random thoughts. I feel like I spend half my life in randomness, rarely finishing a sentence or thought. Thus is the way of the mom. Thanks for sharing. My oldest is heading to 6th grade. She was just a baby. I don't know what happened.

  4. "I feel like I spend half my life in randomness, rarely finishing a sentence or thought" This is exactly how I feel! I'm lucky to have a coherent conversation, without jumping from one thing to another without interruption.

    The kids grow up way too quickly - today Emma was talking about high school and college. Yikes.
