RTT: Random Turn of evenTs

Have you ever been heading down a road, on a trip, and, maybe you've never been there before or you've spaced out for ten minutes and missed your exit and.. eventually you realize you've come a realllly long way out of your way? Like, it pains you to think about turning around and heading back to the one spot you know, simply because it's so freakin' far behind you?!

Yeah. Well, we did our inspection for this other (bigger, much bigger) house that we were previously under contract with and.. not happenin'. We voided the contract, getting out via the inspection contingency. (Thank goodness for contingencies.)

You know, because it's so easy to make these large, life-changing events while one is pregnant. We've already gone over my confused state of being as late.

But, this is Random Tuesday so we can't dwell on things. I just finished addressing the invites for my son's 2nd birthday party. The big 2.0. Unreal.

I've never been a fan of reality TV. Until "The Bachelorette". And "The Apprentice." And "The Office". (Just kidding.) No, really. I have a serious Bachelorette addiction. Who can blame me? I love seeing a bunch of manly men acting like girly-girls. Good times.

Not that the GM news surprised anyone today, but I just wonder.. is anyone out there seriously considering buying a GM car right now? I'm wondering how that psychological impact will impact the employees, the shareholders, the Board, the suppliers, and the very big multiplier effect of the American auto industry. A Saab is still a Saab, right? A Cadillac.. a Caddy? Right?

I really love corn on the cob. What I love even more is watching my toddler hold an ear in each of his hands, eye the ear carefully from end to end, pick the perfect spot to start, and then CHOMP with as much gusto as little two-year old jaws will allow. Ah, childhood.

Sorry about the house, I know how excited you were about it. Are you keeping your house on the market anyway to see if you get any hits?

I never liked reality TV either but now I watch The Apprentice and Wife Swap and they're both the epitome of reality TV. The Office, ha. That show rocks, I don't care if it's not real.

Happy almost birthday to the kid!

I heard that someone actually bought Hummer from GM. I'm betting it was the US Government.

We have been looking to move for awhile now. We want more space and a better school district. Problem is we have to sell before we can buy. That ain't happening. Our house is great as it is.

When buying a vehicle, a lot of factors should come into play.. my first three cars were "orphans" meaning not made any more... Parts are available for years, and popular cars have many sources to be repaired for a long time.
Watching a little kid in a high chair eating pork ribs or corn is always worth a photo!

I loved watching my little ones eat corn on the cob, too. :)

Ugh about the house; but great that you had the contingency!

I feel it's only FAIR that we get to see men act like silly little girls after we've watched the women act all giddy on the Bachelor. It's almost embarrassing but I can't seem to look away.

Happy Second Birthday!

Sorry about the house! That's frustrating. Watching kids eat corn on the cob is hilarious. Getting ready for the big 2 year old birthday bash will probably be a big undertaking. Tell hubby to get ready to do a needed foot massage when all is done :)

Someone will swoop in and rescue all that's worth saving from GM. Like Jeeps.

It was the Chinese that bought the Hummers though. Scary.

Sorry to hear about your house :(

I'm sorry the house didn't work out, but I'm glad you got out of it if it wasn't the right one.

I am also watching the bachelorette. It's so bad and yet so good at the same time.

The big 2 is pretty crazy right?

It can be a relief to get out of something that big if it turned out not be good for you or in bad shape! Hope you find a better fit for you.
