Random Tuesday Thoughts - Camping and Detassling

It's another weekly edition of Random Tuesday Thoughts, hosted by Stacy Uncorked. Go ahead and link up. You know you wanna!

Last Saturday I had no kids and no hubby so I ventured on up to Whispering Oaks Campground and hung out with my sister. I used to camp there but gave it up due to all the drama. I didn't want a remake of Day of Our Lives every weekend.

But because I'm glutton for punishment, I spent the night there Saturday. It went well for the most part, minus me getting upset over an almost ruined friendship. Traci and I donned patriotic gear and listened to a live band.

Adam, my 14 year old, started his first official job yesterday as a corn detassler. He hates it already but wants to make some moolah. I don't envy him; it's tedious work. He works the cornfields from 6 am to noon. The job will only last a couple of weeks. It's two weeks of torture but the money will be good in the end.
I spent six hours at the hospital with my mom last Tuesday so she could get a biopsy done. It looked like they peeled her ear off for fun, then reattached it the ugliest way possible. She was hurtin' for certain. On the plus side, the biopsy results were negative of any findings, so she can move forward with her cataracts surgeries.

I dog sat for a co-worker last week. I don't know what breed her dog is, but I think it falls into the BigBlackBallofUgly category. My dog wasn't so fond of another furball in the house so I had to take turns with the two. Turns out, I like her dog better. At least it would listen to me.
I've had my fair share of birthdays for one week. My step-daughter's was the 12th, my nephew's was the 14th, and my son's is today. We don't do birthday parties for our kids anymore but I did get a chance to hang out with my lovely family members Sunday when I attended my nephew's party. Good times!
Tell me, what randomness do you have for the week?

Your mom's poor ear! Ouch! My Grandpa has to have that done at times. I'm glad her results are negative.

We've been trying to play catch up ever since we got back from vacation earlier this month. My husband needs to get some sculpture molds up to KC, and I have to get Mica's birthday book made. I took pictures last night, but didn't have time to make the book yet.

Prayers with your mom.

Happy birthday to the birthday peeps :)

Just like other peoples kids listen better, it seems that their dogs do too. What's up with that!?
