And we begin the randomness.





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.

The recliner looks nice and comfy! I like the plant too. Funny how you and I are both getting into decorating and rearranging our living rooms. Very fun indeed!

I hope you're able to keep up with this blog, but I understand it can be time consuming. I agree with Tim though--it will help us in feeling connected to you guys.

Hope you all feel better soon!!

Love,
Rach

Woohoo! I'm so happy you've become a blogger...and I loved the comment about Tyler thinking he only has three more inches to go to be like daddy. How cute.

Welcome to Blog World, Melody! I'm very excited to have a new blog to read! I liked the Tyler comment too. I didn't know you guys had a piano! I like the new snazzy recliner. I would actually be interested in hearing more about the potty training....

Yay! I've got you on my Google Reader subscriptions now so I'll keep in touch better.

Love the piani.

Yeah. Tell Tyler Wayne that I feel like I just have three more inches to grow before I'm a real man too.

Yes, Rach, it is fun. Some of the changes I was planning on, but you inspired me when you said you were going to start looking for new furniter. We happened upon a sale on the recliner at a good time! Tim and Carrie - we got the piano this summer from our friends Patty and Mark. She was upgrading to a snazzy new piano, so we bought this 1928 upright grand. It needs to be tuned, but to me it sounds great! I can finally play! I've enjoyed it.
