Random Thoughts that are dancing around my head.
Christmas is in 64 days !!! Sixty friggin four days away. Sneaks up on my every single year. The thought of having only 64 days to get all of my shopping done, everything wrapped, Christmas trees and other decorations put up, Christmas cards mailed, Christmas light put up on the house, family dinners planned, pictures with Santa Claus taken … etc etc. UGH! I love Christmas time, but it really is MY most stressful two months of the year.
My feet have just randomly started swelling. Like SUPER swelling. Like … when I was 9 months+ pregnant with my nearly 10 pound son type of swelling. And I have no idea WHY. My diet hasn’t changed. Nothing has really changed. But man, it’s uncomfortable and ugly and … I’m kind of really pissed off about it. So I’ve upped my water intake; I’m making sure that I’m exercising more regularly; I’m soaking my feet in cold water with Epson salt every night (that’s what the Internets told me to do); and I’m watching what I eat a little more. I mean … what the hell …. what else am I supposed to do.
I’m so glad that baseball season is finally over (for us). I mean, don’t get me wrong. I AM a St. Louis Cardinals FANATIC to the core but this year for some reason … my Facebook people went friggin CRAZY with the baseball talk and updates and complaining and minute-by-minute replays and cheering and meme-ing etc. And it was driving me NUTS. It feels SO good to be able to login and see normal posts on Facebook. Like people bitching about their day and random food pictures lol.
I’m also so glad that fall television is back. Scandal! Greys! American Horror Story! Nashville! Revenge! Yes. Yes. Yes. All day long, YES!
And finally … I’m back on a reading kick. Thank the lord. I love to read. But suddenly, I’m drawn to books about serial killers and criminals (Charles Manson in particular) … and memoirs of people with heroin addictions. I have no idea how and why my brain works the way it does but I’ve devoured 4 new books in the last 10 days on those topics in particular. Weird.
Happy Tuesday folks! I’m off to picking up my sweet Grandbaby from daycare. We are gonna get some dinner and take a walk around the neighborhood while her Mommy finishes up her Tuesdays classes at School.
