Heyyyyy! We had a little bit of rain last night! Woot! Of course it didn’t last long, and the ground didn’t get saturated, but I’ll take what I can get! So much for it raining all the time here…not!

I’m totally unprepared with random this week – my brain is blank (c’mon now, you know yours does the same thing at times) without much to flush out in a random sort of way. So I’m just going to wing it. Bear with me, willya?

Back To School shopping is moving along like a slug – I did have a list for Little Dude, so he’s all taken care of, but Princess Nagger’s list didn’t arrive until yesterday, so my random school supply purchases in anticipation of her list wasn’t too bad – there’s only about four items left to get before school starts in four weeks.

I know, right? Four more weeks! So many of my Facebook friends are already posting their first day of school pictures – you have a month leeway before you get inundated with my kids’ first. You’re welcome.

The one thing I’m waiting on until the last minute is school clothes shopping – Princess Nagger especially has been doing some major growth spurts, so much so that she had to borrow a pair of my tennis shoes (though they’re admittedly a size-and-a-half too big for her) just so she’d have something more than flip-flops on when we went to my dad’s company picnic on Saturday. 

I’m going to wait, though, to buy their clothes until the week before school starts – well, OK, two weeks before school starts – so they won’t outgrow them before school starts. Or the week of. It could happen.

Random moment… Here’s some Librarian Humor for you:


Get it? I hope so.

Then there’s this that totally cracked me and Princess Nagger up when we spied it:


Let’s see what else I have in my bag of tricks…


And this one I absolutely love:


Keep on dreamin’!

That’s a wrap for this week – you know the drill, link up and join in the fun, everyone is welcome, random or not. And that means even if you don’t have a specific Random Tuesday Thoughts Rebel post posted, you can still link up, I’m not picky. You don’t even have to add the badge, just link up so I can come harass you on your blog. I promise to play nice.

  1. The kids sure do grow up really fast and I do try to shop for shoes and clothing as close to back to school as possible.
    My kids go back in just two days. I feel bereft already! I love hanging out with them!

    1. They do grow fast, don’t they? Your kids started back so early!! It’s crazy how it differs from state to state on the start/end of school. Before you know it, it’ll be Christmas break and you won’t feel so bereft. 😉

  2. My kids start school August 18th. My son turns 16 that day. He’s not to happy about spending his bday at school.
    That “Jesus was Here” meme had me laughing out loud.

    1. Oh man!! Having to start school on your birthday would suck pond water!! Crazy that they start in the middle of August – I always thought it crazy enough Princess Nagger’s school started yesterday in PA – but last week?! Even crazier!

      That’s one of my all-time favorite meme images. 😉
