10 Random Things for a Friday

  1. Hi Blogger-land! I'm here, posting twice in one week (kind of miraculous lately, eh?) because Facebook is breaking my heart. I'm scared for everyone. Black people, being pre-judged by law enforcement and onlookers - the children of friends, growing up black and not even knowing what that could mean yet - law enforcement friends, fighting a losing battle and being hated for their badge and the color of their skin too - all of the infighting friends, losing and giving up on relationships they've had for years as they divide on the issues.
  2. Ha! And here I drag it to my peaceful little corner anyway. I can speak up, but I, personally, cannot dwell on it much longer before being frozen in sadness over it all.
  3. It looks like the rainstorms forcasted here came over night, so we have another beautiful day!
  4. Am I the only one who feels like summer is FLYING by? I finally set dates for the trip I've wanted all summer to my besties house with my kids, to visit her and her kids. Now I need to get on the phone and schedule my last few needed summer appointments around that too.
  5. I think I'll go shopping. Maybe shopping will make me feel better. We need milk anyway...
  6. I'm on level 976 on Candy Crush. I have FIVE moves to get two stripies, and two dotties. I don't think it can be done. I tell my daughter this on every level. And then I pass it anyway :D
  7. One of my aquatic frogs in my aquarium died a few days ago too. I'll admit I shed a few tears. There's still one left, so I think I'll go get that one some more company if everyone makes it another week (deaths in an aquarium seem to come all at once...).
  8. Sharing with kids means that your morning glass of water starts tasting like pancake syrup (which you don't like) because the four-year-old is thirsty. LOL
  9. I got a new swimsuit from Lands End and I LOVE it. SO comfy. Well worth the investment.
  10. I'm hoping for a calm, fun, relaxing and uneventful weekend for us all <3

Aww, that's a cute Inspirational Sloth. And yeah, I know what you mean about Facebook - the past two days have contained some scary news items.

#8 made me laugh out loud. I remember those days. I'm also hoping for a relaxing weekend. Hoping we both are able to achieve it.

It's been a sad couple of days (or months). I'm trying not to dwell on it either. Doesn't do us any good. I'm going away this weekend so I'm pumped up! Have a good weekend!

Whoa, I'm still in the 300s on Candy Crush--I gave it up for a while. It's so addicting! I'm hoping for a relaxing weekend too. Our summer is far too busy!
