Well, Tim asked me to start a blog so he could feel more connected to us. While I regularly check blogs to get caught up with other people, I'm a little worried I won't have much to write about, but we'll see what happens. I have named this Stuckey Randomness because my thoughts tend to be a bit random, so I assume my blog will inevitably be random as well. This blog could be my chance to work on improving that, but I'm not counting on it...
For starters, I was hoping to have a fun weekend with not having to work today. We did have a good weekend, but all 3 of us have gotten sick. We have a nasty head cold and generally feel miserable, especially Tyler. He's been sick a few days longer than Wayne and I, so we know what we have to look forward to. Today, I loaded up on cold medicines, orange juice, a vaporizer, etc at Wal Mart. The friendly cashier promptly sprayed his conveyor belt down lest he catch our cold. Can't blame him.
On a happier note, I used Christmas money to purchase a new recliner which we picked up on Saturday. I bought a new palm plant that day for the living room. Today we all ventured out to finish off my Christmas money with a new ceiling fan for the living room. (Needless to say, none of us was very energetic, but we got the job done). I am planning to paint the living room/kitchen over Spring Break, so suddenly the living room is changing, and it has been fun.
Tonight, Tyler was asking what the stud finder was. He said "it's Daddy's. I'm growing up to be like Daddy. I just need to grow 3 inches." Luckily, he is much more into being a "big boy" than a baby, like he was a few months ago. He has been potty trained during the day for the past week or so. (He was doing well over Christmas break, but needed a little encouragement after we got home, but is doing better again). I could go on and on about potty training, but I'll stop there. Anyway, that's it for today...we'll see how soon I remember to do this again.
