I used to share randomness. All the time. Every day. And through a series of life’s interferences, I haven’t been. Especially with you. Which makes me very sad. So, in an effort to get out all of the random things I have got milling about my brain, I will share them in no apparent order.
Sit back, buckle up… who knows where this will go:
- I grew a pumpkin patch this year. Yes, I was expecting the Great Pumpkin to visit me. My pumpkin patch has died. Something called “powdery mildew” which totally wiped it out. I got 5 pumpkins from it, so for my first year, I feel like I did okay. But truthfully… I am a little devastated.
- I read Twitter posts on the toilet at work. Seriously… I feel that since I don’t have anything better to do in that 68 seconds, I might as well catch up on things that The Bloggess is saying, and the other very witty people I follow.
- Last weekend, my family adopted a puppy and he is the light of our lives right now.
- I still go to bed and wake up every morning thanking God it wasn’t cancer.
- I’m pretty sure that pink highlighters make the world go ’round.
- I am carrying on a torrid love affair with Diet Dr. Pepper.
- The problems of the world overwhelm me and I find myself worrying about people I haven’t talked to in forever. I say silent prayers for people on the east coast about to face Hurricane Irene. I think about the earthquakes all over the world and wonder if this really is the end of days.
- If it is the end of days, I worry that I will have left things unsaid. I hate unsaid things.
- I worry too much.
- I carry all of my stress in one spot of my back – just to the left of my right shoulder blade. When I am stressed, that spot fires up and, on some days, it is so painful it’s almost debilitating. This week has been one of those days.
- I like old movies. Old movies with Paul Newman. Black and white movies with Jimmy Stewart. It was a simpler time.
- I’m glad I didn’t live then because, seriously, I would have been beaten. I have “stubborn” and “outspoken” running through my veins.
- There’s something wonderful about Bruce Hornsby.
- If I knew then, what I know now, I would have done things differently.
- I am so very blessed, and I have no reason to complain.
- I still find reasons to do it because complaining prompts me to action. I find that when I am complain, I am sensing discomfort and I need to remedy it before it gets out of control.
- It pleases me ,to no end, to validate someone. I love making people smile.
I may have more… but maybe I’ll keep them to myself again for a while.
