Random Thoughts for a Tuesday

I have too many random thoughts in my head to wait until Friday for fragment day, so you are getting them today! Lucky.

Yesterday, K went to school in sunglasses because she has a large sty on her eye. She is tormented by these sties two or three times a year. What causes a sty?  "poor eyelid hygiene" according to one website. Seriously? I need to rethink our family's eyelid hygiene. Basically she looks like someone has punched her in the eye. In elementary school and middle school, it was ok to look like Rocky. It is NOT ok to look like a prize fighter in high school. Well, not even thinking that sunglasses would cause a stir because there is no dress code in HS, her teachers questioned her on whether it was Hollywood day or whether she was stoned. Score 1 for naive HS mom.

After I took K to the Dr.'s to get some medicine for said sty, we stopped at a fast food burger joint (these are few and far between on Cape Cod). I had little dude and his sister with me and ordered an extra kid's meal for the toy and french fries, specifically. K opened up the burger to take out the pickle and it looked like a bite had been taken out of just the burger. Ewwww. I took it back in and asked for a new one and nobody seemed too fazed by it. Yuck.

The Patriots won last night. (Just had to put that in for Patty)

With all the 9/11 remembrances going on over the weekend, I hope you took or now take the time to watch this video. It is incredible.

OMG. I am sitting here sobbing and I will never look at a red bandana without thinking of that young man. What a bittersweet story.

I saw this video earlier and it started the waterworks for the whole day.

The speakers on my computer are broken so I'll have to wait until I'm on the laptop to watch the video.

The burger thing made me gag a little. You just never know what those little punks are up to when they're supposed to be making food. Sick.

Wow. That video is awesome. Thank you for sharing it.

Bummer...about the sty. Here's hoping it's her last one this year!
