29 things....

Random things about me...

  1. I hate shopping… any kind of shopping when it is for myself! (see#11 below).
  2. I happen to prefer strawberry anything, soda, lotion, candles, etc, even though as a youngster I was nicknamed strawberry shortcake and hated the word strawberry because of it..
  3. I don't like the taste of coffee or tea..
  4. I love chic flicks, especially the ones that make me cry . Drives my hubby nuts, because he ends up having to take me to them!
  5. I love the show "Suits" which the hubby loves too, which is odd, cause usually hubby doesn't like the shows I like..
  6. I want to write a children's book and have had the idea of one for 6 years now.
  7. I wanted 16 kids.
  8. I love blogging, but don't keep up with it and have about 35 current ideas written down of what I want to blog about.
  9. I am obsessively clean, neat and organized at my work place, but not at home.
  10. I love lemon yogurt, but hate lemon pie.
  11. I am cheap / frugal – something my mother was and I said I would never be… but here I am..
  12. I am not in the least materialistic and it drives me crazy when I see diamond commercials or other things in the published media that make it seem like all women want are expensive things.
  13. I had 4 months in my life( when my youngest was 3 years old) where I suffered panic attacks about my kids, even though they were right there in the room with me.
  14. I learned to swim by being thrown into a pool at the age of 3 (by my father).
  15. I occasionally throw out things by mistake when in my "clean it up mode". Then fret about it for days.
  16. Although I don’t really like the color red, I love red roses.
  17. I check my email account too often each day and get excited every time.
  18. I hate making mistakes.
  19. I over plan things, luckily if things don't go the way I plan, I am okay with it.
  20. I actually like my "bone straight" hair.
  21. Something I always wanted to have was a quick wit, but I don't , but my kids do. (they got it from hubby no doubt)
  22. I have never danced.
  23. I make endless lists.
  24. I have a terrible habit of starting a story, then getting sidetracked with new ideas for a different story. I currently have 5 stories started..
  25. When I think about winning the lottery, all I ever can think of is winning enough to buy each of my kids their own home. There is nothing else in life I need, I am blessed beyond measure.
  26. I hate runny eggs.
  27. I am always early (thanks to the hubby)
  28. I love getting up real early in the morning.
  29. I love the smell of the fire pits at the beach, which I can smell from my bedroom. .

    What have I got to say, it's been too long since I've been here...

    Let's get some updates in!

    For those of you that so kindly read what I ramble about , here goes…

    • I am on a water fast!  It is supposed to help cleanse the body. I started it Monday evening at 6pm. It is now almost 9am Friday , and I am still on it. I have had nothing but water and my vitamins. I didn't even think I would make one full day. But for some reason, it has been easy.  I did not do this to lose weight, but I have lost 5.2 lbs. as of last night. I am not hungry in the least. I feel good. I had a tremendously weird dream 2 nights ago, which  supposedly is typical of those who water fast. My tongue feels weird also, which is another typical thing that happens.  I may try and go till tomorrow morning on this, but if not, no biggy.

    • My daughter's IDIOT husband tried to pick a fight with my husband when we went to "rescue" her from having to be subjected to his anger AGAIN.  He is supposed to be in a lockdown rehab place, (based on what they report to the court system) but they don't lockdown. I am livid as usual, but I can't do anything I have no control over. So, I must just live with the idea that my daughter is an idiot too for continuing to see IDIOT.

    • Oh….. WE ARE MOVING in a month and a half. Just to the next housing tract. It is to a house that my oldest son started renting 14 or so years ago, then moved out , but still manages. Everyone of my kids have lived there at one point or another. And now we will live there with one of my sons.! I am excited! Got any spare boxes? Haha! 
    And now some things I read or saw and want to share.
    Remember when?

    Sucks to be sick...

    Yep, it does, big time!

    No, no... I am not sick, but the hubby is definitely getting sick.
    I heard it in the way he was coughing last night.
    And sure enough, this morning he is achy, breaky, cough, coughing!
    Darn it, and we had a mini vacation planned for this weekend.
    I am sure we are still going to go, but gosh, I hate it when 
    he doesn't feel up to it.

    I will hit him with some antibiotics, some warm soup
    and hot baths for the next few days
    and pray that makes him feel better.

    Okay... so this is not my bath... but I can paste this to the wall while he takes a bath.
