Random

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.

 

End of days

Well folks, I don’t know what to do.   Keep this blog or just give up the ghost and let it go.   I don’t use it.  I don’t rely on it anymore.  I would say that I don’t look forward to updating my blog … but it’s more than that … I don’t even think about it really.   My little circle of Internet friends and their blogs used to make me so happy … but almost all of  that “circle” is gone these days.   Blogging just ain’t what it used to  be I guess.

So my hosting company auto-bills my credit card every month … and I just got my new card in the mail … which means that if I don’t login and update my card information … my blog will be cancelled and deleted.

EIK!

I gotta couple of weeks left probably.   Maybe I’ll dig in and try to get back in the habit.   I just don’t know.   If it doesn’t happen … and you check one day and I’m gone.   That’s why ….

Gossip Girl Addiction

Newest addiction ???  Gossip Girl.   I’m marathon watching like it’s my JOB.  And you’d think (as I thought) … that “Nate” would be the cute boy I’d be interested in.   Nope.   It’s Mr. Chuck Bass for me.   Something about power tripping cocky boys just does something for me.  And yes I realize I’m way too old to care … but shut it.  It’s only a TV show lol.

 

Tell me where am I supposed to go?
And who am I supposed to believe?
If only you knew what I knew
Then you could see just what I see

So I grab my bags and go as far away as I can go
‘Cause everything ain’t what I used to know
And I try to hide but I just can’t hide no more
There’s nothing worse than feeling like a ghost

You say I look fine, if only you knew what was on my mind
You’d see a whole different sign, I couldn’t show you even if I tried
I must have got lost in time when I found out
I was only free to be where ever I want to be

Some say I’m out of sight, how I run and that we’re all so blind
If you could open up your eyes, you could see what I couldn’t describe
And then, you’d see the signs and then your soul would be set free
And then you’d be released

So I grab my bags and go as far away as I can go
‘Cause everything ain’t what I used to know
And I try to hide but I just can’t hide no more
There’s nothing worse than feeling like a ghost

Tell me, where am I supposed to go?
And who am I supposed to believe?
If only you knew what I knew
Then you could see, hey

So I grab my bags and go as far away as I can go
‘Cause everything ain’t what I used to know
And I try to hide but I just can’t hide no more
There’s nothing worse than feeling like a ghost

And I’m terrified like I’ve seen a UFO
‘Cause everything ain’t what I used to know
And I try to hide but I just can’t hide no more
There’s nothing worse than feeling like a ghost

I go, a UFO
And I’m so tired of hiding
I’ve been running, I’ve been trying
To get away, to get away

So I grab my bags and go as far away as I can go
‘Cause everything ain’t what I used to know
And I try to hide but I just can’t hide no more
There’s nothing worse than feeling like a ghost

 

Back in the kingdom we were kings and queens and oh so free

Some songs … just stick with me. Forever.

 
The ship was sinking, we were drinking, singing one last song
casting our gold into the ocean
You grabbed a bucket, started screaming come on, come on
Let’s try and slow the downward motion
Back in the kingdom we were kings and queens and oh so strong
That God himself could not contain us
We never thought we’d be the shorter end of sword and gun
Now God himself can never save us
Waves of silver, waves of gold are coming down to take me
Separate my body from my soul and Jesus either leaves or takes me
Hopes of heaven, fears of hell and what’s the chance I’ll make it
When all my other plans have failed and I have tried so hard to fake it

All right…

We started sinking, drinking water from the open sea
Losing our bodies to the ocean
You grabbed my hand and started screaming, rescue me
Together fight the downward motion
Back in the kingdom we were kings and queens and oh so free
That God himself just had to show us
We never thought we’d be the colder side of land and sea
But he’s the only one who knows us
Waves of silver, waves of gold are coming down to take me
Separate my body from my soul, and Jesus either leaves or takes me
Hopes of heaven, fears of hell and what’s the chance I’ll make it
When all my other plans have failed and I have tried so hard to fake it

Zoo Adventures – Sunday June 29, 2014

IMG_2923

I love the Zoo.  Always have.   Even with the icky animal smells and the 17.27 miles that must be walked to get from place to place.   Doesn’t matter.   Love. The. Zoo.

This past weekend we took our little Kassi B to the Zoo for the very first time.   I was afraid that the size of the animals might bother her because she’s never seen any type of large animal in person.   Only dogs and cats etc.   But nope.   Didn’t phase her a bit (I should have known.  Child has no fear of anything so far.)
