What else on a Monday morning?

My brain is full of random half thoughts this morning...

1. Kristy has inspired me to kick myself into gear and work on my list of "30 things to do before I'm 30"... her list is 29 Things Before 30, but I'm gonna 1 up her! :)
**Jenn also had a list a while back ago... she's the one that originally made me start thinking about working on my list.

2. Brandon and I are both going to make lists... maybe some of them will overlap... we can hold each other accountable! :)

3. It's stinkin' cold outside!

4. I am singing this Thursday night for a "Senior Adult Christmas Banquet"... jealous? :)

5. I have partially decorated my house for Christmas... I'm just not in the mood this year. :(

6. The girls have a 3 foot Christmas tree on the bedside table in their room... so far there have been 2 broken ornaments and I've picked the tree up off the floor atleast a half dozen times... that's not counting the times that Brandon has picked it up.

7. My friend, Jared, is going to be taking some headshots for me sometime in the next few weeks... I'm excited about that!

8. Remember when my guestroom was supposed to get a makeover in July and then the date moved to September... well it's December, but it is finally ALMOST DONE!!! 4 of the 5 things on my list to do in that room can be checked off, but I still need to finish the last one and add one more thing to the list... it WILL be done before Christmas!!!

9. Here's the results from the ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) specialist that I took Riley to see last week... "If you WANT to have tubes put in, we can do it. If you DON'T want tubes put in, we don't have to do it."

10. My follow up appointment with my surgeon went well. I have to go back for a mammogram in March... that mammogram will serve as my new "baseline" picture to which all future mammograms will be compared. After my mammogram I will go back for another follow up with my surgeon.

11. I am no where NEAR being finished with my Christmas shopping!

12. My friends, Brian and Trish are in the process of adoption. Trish just started a blog... go check it out. They are SUPER people and will be AMAZING parents!!!

13. They have a cookbook that they are selling and all proceeds from the sales are going straight to their adoption fees... need a nice cookbook for yourself or one to give as a Christmas gift? Check out her blog. They are only $15. They are VERY pretty... kind of a scrapbook appearance to the cover AND I even have a few recipes in there! :)
Brian is a chef... yep, that's his actual occupation... and he has a TON of recipes in the book.
I told Trish that they should auction off Brian's culinary talents. :)
I'd pay to have him come cook a nice dinner for me and my family!! Especially in the craziness of the holidays!

14. To make things ever easier... you can buy the cookbook on Ebay! Check it out!! For less than $20 (including shipping) you can help Brian and Trish and add some new recipes to your cooking repertoire! :)

15. My parents are currently in Romania on a mission's trip. If you can spare a minute or 2, say a prayer for their safety as well as the safety of their team.

Wow... I think I'm all out of randomness. Ah. Now I have space in my brain!

I hear ya, on the not in mood...I have no desire to make my toffee, fudge and spritz cookies this year. I don't get it. I keep looking at the calender and thinking we have to go see Santa, whose only there on the this,on the weekend, go there together of course has to be weekend, cause Hubby works. Well, there are 2 WEEKENDS left. blah. I hope I didn't just bring you down. I will say a prayer for your folks in Romania too. BTW: Doctors like that guy really BUG me too! 12 years of schooling and YOU can't tell ME the answer. Yeah OK!

Heather said...

I liked this list! These are actually my favorite kind of posts, because they say a lot about people.

I really liked that B&W headshot you had up a while back. Are you going to do some modeling? You totally should!

I'm not in the mood either. For..well, anything really. Except maybe a nap and a candy bar.

Jenn said...

Love the lists... and I will definitely be praying for your parents!!!

The Eubanks said...

Thanks for all the plugs!!

Renata said...

I love your random post!
I think a list is a good idea - although 30 is coming up too quickly!
I agree that the doctor should make the decision on the ear tubes - did he say if they would be beneficial?
Hope your parents are enjoying their time in Romania - praying for them.
Have a nice day!

Mummy McTavish said...

Don't mention Romania, I so desperately want to go back one day... Saying a prayer for your parents and for the people whose lives they will touch and who in turn will touch them.
I am with Heather... I love these random type posts, you get to know so much more about each other through them.
