RTT: Oh, this and that

 

I love being random!  Do you want to be random?  Just pop on over to Keely's blog The Un-Mom, grab the button, and do some randomness of your own!  Just make sure you linkup to her blog so we can read how random you truly are!

I can't believe I haven't posted anything in a week.  That is so not like me.  

I love coffee in the morning.  What I don't like is it raises my glucose levels.  So not fair.  I drink it black, no sugar.

I'm wondering is Captain Dumbass has had a chance to see any speed skating this past week.  I mean live, in the stands, not on TV.  So cool that the Olympics are being shown in his hometown!  By the way, the Cap'n has a great blog, Us And Them, and his kids are adorable and hysterical!  You should check him out if you don't already.

By the way, Captain, that's a lotta testosterone in your house, but I KNOW Supreme Leader can handle it.

I am sooooo jealous of my oldest child!  She's going to Ireland to visit her very good friend, Colleen, who is going to grad school there.  I told Gina I have a passport, and I'd be more than happy to keep her company on the trip, but she sort of ignored that.  Oh well.... when I win the Powerball lottery, I'm going to all the places I wish I could visit (Ireland, Alaska, Canada, Greece, a lot of other  places in the good ol' US of A)

So my youngest offspring has decided that college might not be for her.  She wants to go to hairdressing school in Philly and venture out on her own.  I wish she'd stay in college and get her degree, but who am I to tell her not to become a hairdresser if that's what she really wants to do!  I was a hairdresser, once upon a time and I made a decent living at it.  She has the talent for it and she could always go back to college and work as a stylist in the future.  I just want her, and my other kids to be happy in what they are doing.  That's most important!

To round out news of my offspring, my son is graduating from college in a  few short months and is in the process of sending out resumes.  I was talking to his dad last night (sometimes, ya just gotta whether you want to or not) and he told me that the jobs my son is looking at are all in New York.  I hope he finds something soon (and I hope they want to pay for him to go to grad school so he doesn't have to pay for it himself!)

OK, time to get this butt to work.  Thanks for stopping by!

Peace out!

psst!  I have a friend who blogs here... her name is Vodka mom. It's also the name of her blog.  Her blog is one of the funniest I've ever read! Anyway, she was nominated for the Top 50 Mommy Bloggers.  It would be really cool if you could check her out, read some of her stuff and go over to Babble and vote for her!  And you can vote more than once!  As a matter of fact, you can vote once a day!  Last time I checked she was ranked #8!  Simply click here to go to the site.  And check out her blog!  You won't be sorry!!

Not many kids know they want to get into a career path.

Have a great RTT!

Congrats on your son's graduation! Hope he's able to find a job quick and easy! I envy your daughter too! I was in Ireland for the first time five years ago, it's by far the most beautiful place I've ever seen!

I tried to vote for Vodka Mom, but couldn't find her on the voting site. Is she in a specific category?

Garret of Jim and Garret said...

Wow, I think she just rubbed it in a little.

At that age, kids sometimes aren't sure about their direction in life. They just have to figure it out.

If I know Captain Dumbass at all I suspect he has been glued to the TV all day long.

What's wrong with cosmetology school? As long as there is hair, there will be a need for hairdressers. I say more power to your daughter. And just think... free haircuts for life! Yay!

Amy@Bitchin'WivesClub said...

It sounds like things are going really well, Joanie!! I am so glad to hear it. :) I will go vote for VodkaMom now and I owe that Dumbass a visit, too.

Joanie M said...

Oh, nothing wrong with Cosmetology School! I was a hairstylist for a lot of years and I made a fairly good living at it!

Joanie M said...

Garret, yeah I think she rubbed it in too, the little brat. When I win the Powerball lottery, she's not going on the cruise with us.

Melanie said...

Congrats on your sons grad! I'm jealous of my big bro(captain Dumb Ass) for being so close to the Olympics, even though I am only 3 hours from Vancouver I just can't make it out!

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

Yes, hope your son is successful quickly in the job search!
Does this mean your daughter is moving back home? I know how you enjoyed your freedom...

Captain Dumbass is a cool dude! I think he should write a zombie screenplay!

Going to Ireland would be pretty cool!
