Random 5 on Friday - August 29

It's Friday, it's Friday...are you doing the "Holiday Weekend Happy Dance" too?   Five Random thoughts on our week...

1.  I'm in the middle of organizing another giant "field trip."  My maid of honor and her husband are coming from Australia to visit in October - I'm so excited because we haven't seen each other in 14 years!! We've been doing schoolwork all summer so we can take the three weeks they are here off and cram in as much sightseeing as we can.  Jo and I were trying to figure out our routes, and Brendan kept adding new places to the itinerary.  When we figured out a Niagara Falls-Cleveland-Gettysburg loop, he yelled "What about the groundhog?  Can we go see Phil?"  I'm not sure we will see the Prognosticator of Prognosticators, but yes, we're going to detour and drive through Punxsutawney. 

2.  Jude went to the eye doctor, and needs a major prescription change. He was disappointed the eyeglass shop didn't have the same red, white, and blue "Captain America" frames.  (They're not really "official" ones - just how we sold them to him last winter when his favorite "just blue" were not available.)  He is very happy with the black-framed "Clark Kent" glasses we ordered.  Once he starts wearing them, nobody will know he's really Superman. 

3.  I am so looking forward to Celia going back to school.  She needs her friends, and we all need a routine.  I'm such a fly-by-my pants girl that it's crazy to me that I'm craving organization.  It's been chaos since June. 

4. Neal sometimes bring produce home from work - usually it's stuff that is perfect for eating but too ripe to sell to market. He texted me and said somebody gave them some pineapple.  I didn't realize New Jersey switched places with Hawaii, but I'm OK with that!  (It's not local, but it's still yummy!)

5.  A conversation in our house:

Damien: I'm out of underwear.
Me: I know it's been washed!  Check with Jude - maybe your stuff is in his drawer.
Damien: Jude! Give me your underwear!
Jude: Mom, do I have to? I'm not giving him my favorite Power Ranger underpants. 

Happy Friday!  Come join the fun at The Pebble Pond!
