RTT - I'm making up for lost time

Snickers & Cheyenne laying guard :)
It's Tuesday and it's time for Stacy's Random Tuesday Thoughts.  

After posting about my Hell Week on Friday, I went home to find out that my dad had taken my sweet Cheyenne on her final ride to see the doctor.  It was time.  I really wish I'd had a chance to give her one last cuddle, but it really was best that he did it the way he did.  The girls handled it much better than they would have if they'd known it was happening.

Saturday I locked my keys in my car....AGAIN!!  Of course after I'd already asked my sister to make the 20 mile trip to bring my spare to me at my favorite 2 year old's birthday party, a couple of the men in attendance tell me "Oh we can break in, no problem."  They give it their best try...and FAILED.  Then my friend Stump (who's a volunteer fireman) offers to run to the fire station just outside the neighborhood to see if they have a lockout kit.  Then Tater texts me and offers to come to my rescue AGAIN, but I tell him not to bother, my sister is only a couple miles away at this point.  Sister pulls up to the curb, hands me my spare key, turns around and passes the ladder truck on her way back out.  Story of my life....

I'm praying for everyone that is in the path of Isaac, but I'm excited about getting some hellacious rain in my parts.  We need it, I love storms and it gives me one more excuse not to wash my car.

I couldn't find a single pair of my own matching pairs of flip flops this morning.  One pair I know is in my car covered in mud from where SLou wore them and went mud stomping...and found herself in SERIOUS trouble.  One pair was separated by my own doing, from wearing one tennis shoe and one flop when I was still sporting gauze on my left heel....and left the other flop in Jinx's truck.  As for the others...I'm stumped.  So I resorted to stealing a pair of Beelay's that I found under my bed during the search. 
I'm super stoked for the weekend.  We're celebrating Chiquita's, Cuz's & Captain Knuckle's birthdays.  It's guaranteed to be an entertaining time....be on the lookout for another Clown Adventure.

So enough random for now.  I'm linking up with Stacy at Stacy Uncorked.  As always, here's the link to follow me on Facebook and take a sec to click the banner below to help me improve my rankings at topmommyblogs.com.

  1. I'm sorry your Cheyenne has gone onto the Rainbow Bridge. :(

    My DH locks the keys into the car so frequently, it's why I got AAA in the first place. lol And I can never find my other flip flop, either. The other day I found one behind the sofa - one of the cats must have dragged it off?

    1. A friend just sent me the Rainbow Ridge email over the weekend.

  2. I'm guessing who Cheyenne was. We said goodbye to our 14 year old Lab in June. Tough stuff! You sound like me with the keys. I'm just a total disaster when it comes to cars. Hope you have a great weekend. Sounds like fun. Can't wait to read about a Clown Adventure. I want one!

  3. First of all, I love that you have a volunteer fireman friend named Stump. And I agree with Storm. I really don't know what I'd do without AAA. I once locked my keys in the car WITH my TWO YEAR OLD SON. Luckily, we have a fire station right around the corner!

    1. I did that too...on Christmas Eve!!!

  4. Awwww! I'm so sorry about Cheyenne - at least when she reached the other side of Rainbow Bridge, my buddy Elvis was probably waiting for her. And I am talking about my dog, not the King. ;)

    Isn't that one of the worst feelings, locking your keys in the car? Especially when you do it more than once. And I'm with Gretchen - I love that you have a friend and volunteer fireman named Stump! :)
