Well here we are in mid Oct., and I can hardly believe it. I have been thinking for a while now that I would love to come up with some "new" material for my blog. I honestly can't believe how entertaining and creative soo many of your blogs are, while it seems as if I am always saying the same old thing in somewhat of a different way, and only if I try REALLY hard. Isn't there more than just the day to day story of my life on my mind? haha I was going to try the meme that my friend Jennifer did at Trading Ashes for Beauty, but I honestly don't know if I can even think of 10 things I don't DO (I think I will try doing just 5)....which sent me down another whole train of thought, but I will leave that alone for now. I seriously hope I don't just come up with a list that proves I am a little more neurotic than I thought. : )
Jennifer you started with a food that you don't DO or dislike, so I decided I would "try" starting there. But it made me hit a blank wall right off the bat.....There is NO food I don't DO....sigh. Honestly I love almost everything. But upon deep reflection I did come up with..... I no longer DO donuts. Now this has nothing to do with my not loving donuts, or my knowing that they are really not good for me in ANY way, but more to do with the fact that I have FINALLY learned (over the course of MANY years) that I always end up sick when I do, haha....Just kind of heavy headed, slow, tired, and downright bizarre. Obviously just too much sugar and fried grease.....VERY yummy, but just doesn't work for me.
Now my next one is something I have decided to change VERY VERY soon...but at the present time I do not DO airplanes. This is do to my extreme claustrophobia, and therefore the just knowing that this would require being in a sealed place for an extended period of time, and not the fear of the plane crashing. Sooo not good in my book. This has caused me some HUGE problems over the course of my life, and now with both a daughter AND a grandson living as far away as they do, something I really do need to change....sigh.
This is one is also kind of weird, but I do not DO sleeping in. Not since I was in high school anyway. My body just doesn't seem to want to for some reason. I don't care what time I went to bed, I pop up at around 6 (or even earlier) pretty much no matter what. I would love to think I might just even occasionally spend a morning laying around in the comfort of my bed, but I really have my doubts as to rather or not that will be happening anytime soon.
Ok let's see....I do not DO multiple pairs of shoes....really random I know, and also pretty weird. But I just never have. I find a pair of shoes that are REALLY comfortable, and (now there is one pair for warm weather, and another one for cool) then I wear them pretty much everyday, everywhere I go until they either fall completely apart or look completely disgraceful. I told you this post would make me look pretty neurotic...lol. I DO try and branch out or at least have a couple of different colors or something even if it is the exact same shoe but I have found that I don't even really DO that very well.
I DO not DO turtlenecks....my reasons for this are simple. Again, the claustrophobia comes into play, and I am ALWAYS hot. Not sure if this is because I am overweight, or because I seem to be in a continual state of menopause...
OK, I guess that is 5. lol. This was kind of fun, but I probably took it a little toO literally. There are MANY MANY MANY things I don't do often, but not very many I just don't DO at all.
My week-end was good. My sister Diane and I got together for the WHOLE day (starting literally with breakfast at Coco's) on Sat. as Jeff went to the men's retreat. It was nice to "hang out" as we don't get much of that anymore. We did go over to my mom's for a while. My step dad got out of the hospital on Sat. even though it didn't seem as if he was really ready in any of our books. But I am sure you all know how that goes anymore. If you are even thinking about you might be getting a little better, they toss you out. He is still of course barely moving along but he is getting a tiny bit better everyday, and we are all grateful. I still covet your prayers for his recovery. We also hit Joanne's moonlight madness sale and I got Christmas flannel to make 7 of my grand kids Christmas jammies. The lines were LONG, the crowd somewhat crabby, but it was all worth it for the money I saved, and the prospect of some really cute PJ's. I will post more about this later, and show the fabric of course.
I have another busy week coming up so I guess I better get busy as I am already over my time allotment (I try to be somewhat disciplined about my computer time) for this day. Hope you all have a wonderful week! Until next time.....HUGS!!
Just FYI....I "somehow" erased my usual signature, and didn't know how to get it back...hopefully, it will just be erased for this post... ;)
