Hard to believe summer is officially over! Well, technically speaking, the first day of fall isn’t for another two weeks, but you know what I mean. Today is the first day of school for Little Dude, Princess Nagger has one more day of freedom before having to hit the books.

It’s hard to imagine that this was eight years ago – Princess Nagger’s first day of Kindergarten:


I’ll be taking pics of Little Dude before he heads off to school, and even though Princess Nagger won’t be ‘heading off’, since she’ll be doing the Virtual Academy, tomorrow I’m going to subject her to first day of school pics, too. Gotta keep the momentum going, plus it’s always fun to do comparisons of ‘then’ and ‘now’.

Too bad ‘now’ seems to have gotten here at the speed of light.

I’ll be sure to share those pics next week! Since it’s been crazy getting ready for school, and this week will be the adjustment week, I’m keeping things super simple in a random sort of way (which is perfect for a Random Tuesday, no?) with some fun things I found wandering around last week.

Like this – I thought this was hilarious:


Although if I had thought of doing that, I probably would have used cooked shrimp vs. raw shrimp, because the ick factor bugs me.

I also thought this was hilarious (and wish I had thought of it when the dogs had to wear the cone of shame):


Though again my OCD is nagging me that the ‘olives’ need to be inside the cone instead of waving in the air like that.

And finally, this is just too perfect:


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. Thank you! It’s one of my favorite pictures of The Nag. πŸ˜‰ I love the martini dog, too – ooooh! Maybe that’d be a great Halloween ‘costume’ for the doggies! πŸ˜€

  1. Happy First Day!!! can’t wait to see the go to school pics. How can it be that school is back in already .The summer just flew too fast.

  2. Stacy, I’m finally getting back to comment. I left this open in a tab all day and then went off to do other things. *smack forehead* Time really gets away and it’s painful evident with the kids as they grow. I love the picture of Princess Nagger. She’s cute as button! Thanks for hosting the random. Here’s to a good school year for you guys!

    1. That’s too funny, Cathy! I do that ALL the time!! πŸ˜€ So glad to know I’m not the only one that opens tabs, then gets distracted by shiny objects. πŸ˜‰ That’s one of my favorite pictures of Princess Nagger – she is such a goofball! Well, not as much now, being 13 and OMG a TEEN. πŸ˜‰ But she does still have her moments, and I suspect with the Virtual Academy letting her spread her wings and fly at her preferred fast pace, the goofball may just very well reappear! πŸ™‚ Thank you for the well wishes – you have a great week! πŸ™‚

  3. I Randomized on Tuesday. I randomized so hard!!

    In other totally random news, I cannot figure out how to linky link with Mister Linky.
