There's been a whole lot of random in my life lately so get ready for this roller coaster ride!
This week (and for one week only) I am dominating The Momspective II Fantasy Football League. Yeah! Go me go me! uh uh uh...uh oh, flagged for excessive celebration. Believe me, my celebrating will be short lived. MadMom is sure to kick my @ss in our upcoming matchup. Even if she doesn't, Boston Babe, AlliC, Felicia or Annalise will probably win and eventually, we'll all be tied again and then they will pass me and leave me in the dust. But for a few sweet days, I OWN THEM, YEAH!
Miz Julie is out and about AGAIN! Julie you is my travel
Citizen of the Month is holding his third annual Great Interview Experiment. I signed up this year and am very eager with anticipation to learn what WordNerd wants to know about me and what
Yesterday was a typical Madness Monday. So at the end of the day, I happily joined my husband in the hot tub (yes, we get in nekkid). As we were getting out, Sarah Dog came trotting over with something hanging out of her mouth. I was sure it was some dead animal, ewwww. I told Sarah to drop it, which she did immediately (then she slunk guiltily away). My husband turned on the back patio light and discovered that it was not a dead bird or lizard, but a CARROT! My dog dug up a carrot out of my garden. What can I say, she does love carrots, AND tomatoes which she picked off the vines and ate all summer. So for those of you who lament that your dog or cat brings you dead animals, my dog kills produce and eats it (there's got to be a Cain and Abel reference there somewhere but I just can't figure it out yet). I'm just so proud.
Sunday, I made a double batch of pear crisp in an 11" x 13" pan. My husband ate-the-whole-thing! Yesterday morning, the empty pan was sitting in the sink. Okay, okay, I'm secretly pleased that he loves my cooking, but you know I must pretend to be indignant.
Shhhhh, don't tell my youngest children (17 & 14) but we are taking them to see Wicked as part of their Christmas gifts! I can't wait, I've never seen it. I miss my Kennedy Center membership something fierce.
I was so impressed with Kirstie Alley's nontoxic cleaning solution (cheap vodka) that I ran right out and bought four big bottles for uh...uh...cleaning, yeah that's it. Now, now, I do NOT pour some on my cleaning rag and then take a swig. I do love to make my own nontoxic cleaning products. Vodka, vinegar and lemon juice really do work. Also, for those of you with young kids and animals that might accidentally get into the toilet to play and/or drink, Tang breakfast drink makes a great toilet bowl cleaner. It's also great for sprucing up your dishwasher (just add a scoop to your dispenser and run it through a cycle without dishes). Vinegar and boiling water are also great for killing weeds that grow in the seams and cracks in sidewalks and driveways. Last but not least, all of this stuff is much cheaper than commercial cleaning products.

Tonight, Hubby and I are going to the first game in our season ticket package to see the Sacramento Kings. Go Kings!
Congrats Tonoogle! She just met a goal and completed an EA Active Sports 5K this weekend. She is also a worthy adversary in our Fantasy Football league (I bow, I bow). She gets her Random on too--check out her site.
I confess with some trepidation that I love opera. I love Mozart operas the most, but I'm an equal operatunist.
Thus ends my random, tune in next time when grandpa says "check out Captain Dumbass and say hello food porn!" (That one is for you Hee Haw lovers, you know who you are)
