Life’s Weird That Way

So I’m sitting here tonight watching Grease, and what do you know? I can sing all the songs. Verbatim. As if I’m reading cue cards. YET…I cannot remember what I’ve gone in the laundry room for. Or that I was supposed to pick a child up after school. Give me a break, she only told me once she was staying after! It’s amazing how something can keep place in your brain….for years and years and years.  Such a classic.

My son left for college today. He was on spring break, and I must admit I miss him already. It’s so nice having him to talk to. He’s so entertaining. I laugh a lot when he’s around. And he doesn’t even try. 🙂

This weekend flew by, but don’t they all? Tomorrow morning it all starts again. Up early, to work, get that scary hair cut, and then the horrid question of dinner comes. Ahhh……… Dinner, the dirty question no ones wants to answer, or to prepare. I wouldn’t mind if I didn’t wait until four o’clock to wonder what to eat, make it to the store, stand behind the other fifty or more procrastinators, pay, drive home, be asked millions of times what time it would be finished, then try to create something that will sustain us all for the next 12 hours, while meeting the four major food groups. I’m tired just waiting for the morning to come!

Have a great one, everyone! 🙂

Ten Things I Love, Ten Things … not so much

windy-day

Ten things I love: (in no particular order)

  • a baby’s breath
  • fresh cut flowers on the table
  • an elderly couple holding hands
  • Brussels sprouts (I know, right? I could actually, and have done so before, made a meal out of them)
  • singing (I pity the carjacker hiding in my backseat when I get started)
  • Dr. Pepper (goes without saying)
  • sitting in the surf
  • Friday nights
  • standing in the wind (strong enough to make me lose balance)
  • wearing black

Ten things … not so much

  • finding a hair in my food (going to go hungry for that meal:)
  • seeing myself in pictures (is that how I look?)
  • feet (flip flops should’ve never been invented)
  • shaking hands (bit of a germ freak)
  • regret
  • appointments (kill me now) Why can’t everything be by chance?
  • bugs
  • procrastination (although I am a champion at it)
  • last day of vacation
  • thinking of 5 better things I could’ve said when I had the chance
