Random Thoughts. And A Birthday!

The latest self discovery, in addition to being bored, is that I’m not doing anything fun. Which is why I’m always so tired. So my homework for the next two weeks is to do fun things.

Which begs the question, what do you, dear reader, consider fun? Somehow, I don’t think you’ll be listing cleaning or organizing (except for Trixie). That stuff is still fun to me. But I’m told it expends energy and doesn’t bring any positive energy in.

What do people do to bring in positive energy?


Being that it’s Kayleigh’s birthday today (Happy 13th birthday, Kayleigh!) we have dinner with Doug and Ann tonight, BlueC and birthday guitar night (with cake) on Saturday, in addition to the wine tasting I’m attending at Ann’s on Saturday. And then there’s the football game on Sunday, for which I will make a dutch baby and maybe some bacon (Ha! Todd will make the bacon).

So I have fun things planned for the next few days.


When I sang “Happy Birthday” to Kayleigh this morning, 10 minutes after rolling out of bed creating a very loose, drunken version of the song (complete with silly off keys), my beautiful, intelligent, smart ass daughter replied:

“Are you just too tired to enunciate?”

Well, sheesh. Pop my mama balloon, why doncha?


I need a haircut. My hair is tickling my neck and is completely out of shape. This will not do.  I could use a manicure, too, while I’m at it.....and a massage.  That would be fun.


Looking ahead to this winter, King5 says that, because of that bitch La Nina, this may be our wettest, snowiest winter in 55 years. Fantastic.

What shall we call this snowstorm? Snowfiasco 2010? Gotta get ready….


Regardless of the fun I am about to experience tonight, I still just want to go home and take a nap.  Sad, huh?

When you were a teenager, what did you want to be when you got older? Go out and do THAT! Go play guitar and sing at an open mike night somewhere. Doing something you love to do only in your living room has energy and charm but doing it in public brings on energy like nobody's business.....
