Random Five on Friday, April 19th

1. Eighteen years ago I was close enough to feel the blast from the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City.

2. I started doing laundry on Monday morning, and it's still not all put away. Some weeks are like that.

3. Brennan spent much of his free time this week working on this cool way of displaying his Nerf guns. (Is there any way I count that as an educational activity for the week?)

4. If you dehydrate onions for a camping meal, it's a good idea to put the dehydrator outside. Even then, the smell is awfully strong.

5. Today is Blue and Green day for Donate Life America. Lauren and I picked up a Donate Life temporary tattoo when we were at the hospital this week, and she'll be wearing it proudly. I'd like to offer a very special thank you to everyone who has registered to be an organ donor.

  1. Visiting via Random 5 on Friday! I hope you figure out how to give your son credit - it's a great life skill!

  2. I visited the Oklahoma memorial a few years ago - very touching. My heart breaks. Let me know if you figure out the Nerf gun credit. I could use it for my 12 year old.

  3. I laughed when I read the onion dehydrator experience. I dislike onions so I will never attempt this, but I can only imagine the smell. How long did it take to dehydrate them? Stopping by after posting my Random 5 on Friday Stop by when you can. I would love to hear from you. Have a blessed day!

  4. Laundry always has been and always will be an ever ending battle in my house!
