Friday Randomness

Last night it snowed here. Then it rained on top of the snow. You know what that makes? Slush. We had a nice slushy morning on the way to school. LaLa was mad cause she couldn't play in it and KiKi slipped and face planted (yet again). Lovely start to the day.
----------------------------------------

I turned on the TV this morning to see that their had been a plane crash in Buffalo, NY. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.
-----------------------------------------

Later this morning I am going to tackle to task of emptying the dressers that we brought here from the states. Oh did I ever mention the crap packing job the movers did when we moved here? Yeah, instead of emptying the dressers they packed them as full as they could. I am talking packed them to the point that I can barely even open the drawers. They actually packed LaLa's dresser so full that it doesn't properly shut anymore. It shuts, I just have to slam the drawer to get it to stay shut. Very annoying.
-----------------------------------------

Have you guys seen this? Ryan from Pacing the Panic Room has started a blog where each and every American can write a letter to President Obama to be posted on the site. Let your voice be heard.
-----------------------------------------

I finally watched my first football game on TV since I have been here. That is soccer to the other Americans. Spain beat England 2-0. Eh, at least David Beckham looked dreamy. Oh I was also talking to Single Parent Dad and he has told me that I should start following Liverpool football club because even though they are good, they have had a horrible run of luck and haven't won a championship since the 1980s. Sounds a lot like my loveable losers, The Cubs.


I guess that is it for this Friday. You guys and gals have a wonderful weekend. Oh and my vote for He Blogs, She Blogs has already been cast. I recieved no bribes. Slackers.

Thank you for mentioning the Buffalo crash, that is only an hour from where I live so it seems so close and makes it that much scarier. Especially since my bff is always flying in and out of Buffalo. :(

Nothing like an early morning face plant to get the day started.

Slush...huge bummer:( Face planting...bigger bummer:( Hope their day gets brighter:) I do not miss slush at all...I live in AZ:)

Melissa said...

Darn, sorry to hear that England lost and sadder that I missed the game. I agree you should follow Liverpool. It's a good team.

Single Parent Dad said...

Bar their success in the European Cup, the scousers have struggled to get anywhere near winning the league, even if they do consistently finish amongst the top teams. They are all set to throw it away this year, roll on heartache this side of the Atlantic!

I hate slush. Right now we have huge piles of dirty snow and brown grass. You've gotta love New England

We're supposed to get a ton of snow today, and already there are a few flurries in the air to tease us. If we get enough, I'll build an igloo. Unless I just decide to stay inside. Yeah. I'm just going to stay inside, I think...

Captain Dumbass said...
