Random Tuesday Thoughts - Lots Going On

It's been a hot minute since I've participated in Random Tuesday Thoughts, hosted by Stacy Uncorked.  Life's been busy, with lots of ups and downs.  Here's some of the randomness that's been going on in my life:

Two of my kiddos have turned another year older.  Logan turned the momentous age of 21 and Emma turned 17.  Jason and I took them out to eat at a local Mexican restaurant.  And, yes, Logan took full advantage of his new age when he went out later that night.

I posted some time ago that I fell down my stairs and received a severe sprain on my right foot and ankle.  I sported an air splint for a while but it was a big ole' Pain the Arse.  I'm faring pretty well now and only have pain when I stand on my leg for a long time.  

Just a few days after getting back on track with my foot, I woke up to a scratched cornea.  Third time in a year and a half!  I have no idea how it's happening, except that it's during my sleep.  Couldn't see for two days.  I'm just a walking (and sleeping) accident waiting to happen!

Some dear friends of ours have been generous with their garden goods.  Jason made some zucchini bread and I recently made garden fresh green beans and new potatoes with onion and bacon. Turned out so good.  It was my first time making the green beans meal.

A couple weeks ago I went shopping with a friend at Goodwill in Hannibal, MO.  I'm a thrift store junkie and this was one of the best I've been to in regards to clothes.  I got a whole new wardrobe at a great price.  It was my first trip, but definitely won't be my last!
Jason and I have made plans to go to Tennessee in the middle of August to visit my son who lives there.  We've purchased tickets to attend the Nascar Night Race at Bristol speedway.  It will be our first time attending an official Nascar race.  Have any tips for attending a Nascar event?
We've been in our new home for almost two months now.  Things are unpacked and put away.  We live in the same town as before but we've had a ton more people come over now that we live here.  It's never a dull moment!
How has your summer been so far?
What's your randomness for the week?

Wow you have been busy! I hope you feel better soon. Love Nascar. I used to live about 2 miles from Daytona Speedway. Congrats on your home, happy birthday to your kids and I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer. Those beans look delicious!

WOW a scratched cornea in your sleep sounds so awful! I wonder why it keeps happening? :(

I've had a lot of leg things happen. They are no fun either.

OK, with your sprained ankle and hello?! Scratched cornea in your sleep?! maybe my client's right about the whole 'Mercury is in retrograde' thingamajig. Good news, though, it's only in retrograde through the 31st, so you're almost to relief...heh!!

Happy (belated) birthday to your gorgeous kiddos! And congrats on the new house! And holy moly that green been and potato dish looks delicious!!

And let's just talk about the Nascar Night Race - I'm jelly! I can't wait to see pictures! :)

So glad to see you back with random fun!
