It's Tuesday which is just the best excuse in the whole wide world to unleash Random Thoughts on the world. Many thanks to The Un Mom for hosting each week. Of course, my world is chock full of random. Of course.
I'm traveling this week and am one smokin' hot mess. I was so clogged with gunk yesterday that I actually barfed after I woke up. That's a nice visual, I know. But have you EVER been so congested that you actually threw up? Not me. It's a first. I intermittently feel terrible and fine every half hour or so and my eyes hurt so bad it's a challenge to keep them open. Odd. Scary. I dunno, but I'm pretty much over it and it's not even Hump Day yet.
As much I miss my family when I am traveling I do love working in a hotel room and watching a television that is not tuned to ESPN at a decibel level that harms dogs. I happened upon The Bachelor last night and decided that I like Jake just fine. Not only is he super easy on the eyes, but I sorta dig that he's sending girls home left and right. Why lead them on so they can go on and on about how they knew there was a special spark and can't believe that Jake didn't see it . . . blah, blah, blah. He actually said "Do I have to give out two roses?" Well hot damn. I like you, sir. Send 'em packing and get down to the good stuff. I only sawe the last hour, but that alone was worth the trip.
Oh, that and the shopping here. I am SUPER busy (well aside from this little break in my day. I type fast. Merely a blip on my radar) and occupied every minute. It's a good thing, too because I had forgotten how much great shopping there is in Scottsdale. I have no particular desire to move somewhere that has 8 foot cacti scattered along the landscape, but having done lots of shopping damage in every corner of the Continental US, this place definitely has more good shopping per capita than anywhere else. I mean it. Anywhere. Maybe I think that because it's flat and you can see all the shops on one road. That could definitely be it. But it hasn't stopped me from daydreaming about Nordstrom Rack and Ulta across the street. ** sigh**
After last week's little treat of a conference for The Princess I have been scrambling for some extra curricular activities for her. She has done dance, cheer and gymnastics and isn't particularly interested in taking up any of them on a full time basis. That little detail combined with the fact that I can't be somewhere with her for two hours on a Wednesday afternoon @ 2 is making my search a little bit of a challenge. BUT today I saw that a restaurant here was offering cooking classes for kids. That's cool! I am going to check into that at home. Perhaps that could occupy her. Perhaps.
Hope your week is randomly fabulous! Don't forget to go see Un Mom and all her random friends.
