Pretty much just like the title says, just ramblings of things that are on my mind and I tend to think in the form of run-on sentences. You've been warned.

Happy Friday y'all! For more great FF posts head on over the dadblogs.
Too much like me:
My oldest(Number 1) is a total mini-me. He always has been. We're finding out more and more each day just how much like me he is.
We've been out at my sister and brother in laws in California for the past week and yesterday was our planned trip to Lake Tahoe. I'm not much of a fan of nature, blasphemy I know. I am also terribly afraid of heights(not to mention chickens but that's another story for another time).
Just ask my family and they'll tell you how I NEVER left the condo on the years we'd vacation in the various mountain locations that we did. I grew up in the middle of nowhere so I really didn't see how being in the middle of nowhere somewhere else was a change of pace...
Anyway, back to the story that I started 3 paragraphs ago. Number 1 and I spent the most of our journey with our heads in our hands trying not to yak up what little breakfast we ate(for me that would have been a whole cup of coffee). Neither one of us wanting to open our eyes because we'd been warned of the views coming over the mountains(beautiful I'm sure, if it doesn't make you feel like the ground is falling from below your feet and you're going to drop to your death).
That's just one new way that number one is following in my footsteps.
No milk at McDonald's...WTF!!! Since when does McDonalds NOT have milk? Apparently nobody in Lake Tahoe has children...or prefers a healthy beverage...
To top it off, the day started with Number 2(had to sneak him in there somewhere) spilling red tempera paint all over my sister and brother in law's carpet. And then when I went to get him out of the closet(2 tattle tales are better than 1) he knocked my coffee(which is why I only had one cup today) and I had to clean up that spill from the carpet as well.
And that ladies and gents, is my random nonsense for this week...
