Random Thoughts in December

on December 28, 2011


  • Why haven’t I been blogging like I used to?  I blame facebook.  Instead of spending time thoughtfully expressing myself in writing I’ve turned to short quips, “likes”, and sarcastic (and sometimes funny) retorts.
  • If you enter Publishers Clearinghouse online even once – they will email you every day with another chance to win a bajillion dollars and at the same time offer you “amazing deals” on things that you should own.  Really important things like Eggies.  Because as you have probably seen on T.V. you can waste hours of time trying to peel hard-boiled eggs.  Little did I know that they don’t just sell magazines anymore at PCH.  They will also sell you the Perfect Meatloaf Pan , lighted tweezers, clever organizer wallets, and the ultimate Elvis CD.
  • I’ve officially turned into a “lister”.  This is where you list out to another person either the things you are going to do that day or the things you have done that day.  I used to secretly make fun of my sister for doing this as pointed out by her children — until I realized that my mother is also a “lister”.  My sister comes by it legitimately.  THEN — I caught myself —  I LIST!  I do it all the time.  I’ve officially turned into my mother.  Next I’ll be wearing slippers all the time and carrying zip-lock baggies in my purse.
  • I have a new theme song called Dancing in the Rain.  It’s by Hilary Weeks on her new album Every Step. The lyrics that have been running through my head are “I grabbed my polka dot umbrella – and I danced in the rain.  I told my dreams I haven’t forgotten them . . . ”  (to get the full effect download the song and them imagine me singing it in my car really loud. ) Love this.  I bought myself a polka dot umbrella and it’s in my office.  It’s way past time to remind my dreams that I haven’t forgotten them.
  • New calling in church — teaching the 4-year old.  I’m totally excited. We are going to have so much fun!  (Note to self: practice being the mature one in that class)
  • Why do little kids not cherish “the nap”?
  • It still cracks me up that I still get “hits” daily on a post I wrote a few years ago about Velma from Scooby Doo.  Seriously do THAT many people Google “Velma” and “Scooby Doo” every day?

Officially out of random thoughts.  That is all.
