Random and Rambling

I miss my Ty.
He apparently texted Ryan this afternoon, simply to say that the Encore outfit made him look "like a gay lumberjack."
Hee. Nothing like the honest-love of a brother to make you feel fantastic :)
I miss his lightning quick wit though. He can make me laugh like no one else.
He has been super nice to text and call me every few days. I want to believe that it's partly because he misses me. But mostly I think he's just being kind....
He's doing great. So far seems to have met some nice people, gone to class, and (gasp) even studied a bit.

On another note: I got home from work today at 3pm-ish as usual. Was met by Grace in her jammies. (I usually get home just before she does.)
Apparently she decided at about noon that she had a stuffy nose and didn't want to be at school any more.
She called ANDREW.
WTF. (What The Fire)
That used to be my job! No one else would have EVER bothered dad at work. But then I guess that was when I was always home.
Sigh. When I was sputtering in speechlessness, all 3 kids said that they know that I have to punch in and out and don't want me to lose "hours." So they don't bug me with stuff like this anymore.
The baby is growing up in a different world. Entirely. And it's fine. I'm extremely happy at my job. But every once in a while things like this happen, and I have to sit and sniffle for a while.
Or maybe I'm just catching her "cold"...which BTW is not really even symptomatic, so feel free to picture me doing air quotes.
Rambling and random enough for you? (I partly blogged today because it's the last day of the month, and I've not been very good at blogging this summer. Silly, but I wanted there to be more posts this month. Forgive the self-indulgent nature of this, please.)

Love the gay lumberjack comment. Brothers just tell it like it is huh!

You are funny Kara! I loved your rambling post in which you did not ramble at all!

I know just how you feel about the kids and job thing :(

That is why we blog. To enjoy each others ramblings, and hope you enjoy mine.
Life keeps on moving and we are smart to keep moving with it.
Even if it involves a few "colds"

I wanted to say gay lumberjack last week, but wasn't sure it was appropriate for a family 'outsider.' Now I wish I had so I could seem as cool and clever as Tyler!
