Random Stuffs


I am back to the random stuff!  Yesterday it was random questions...now it's just random stuff.

I do my homework, and then I go through my "decompression."  I can do the writing part of it just fine.  However, the mechanics of how they want me to format everything is destroying my creative flare.  I love my blog.  I can do it anyway I want!

Kristin informed me that I need start taking pictures of the kids again.  Is she for real?  Well...I just might dust off my good camera and get a little happy with it.  She may have unleashed a monster!

Cats drive me crazy.  That is to say, MY cats drive me crazy.  Every morning when I wake up, there they are waiting.  I like internet kitties...for instance...

Tardar, aka Grumpy cat has become a personal favorite of mine.  He's even my profile pic on Facebook right now.  Do you think my cats are jealous?  Grumpy cat doesn't care.

We have one more week of winter break.  In some ways, it is good.  There is no homework.  There is no getting up early and no rushing around.  In other ways, I miss the quiet.  It's a big trade off for quiet.

We took our Christmas stuff down yesterday, and always something got forgotten...


In this case, it was our little angel that goes to our manger scene.  She is not the original.  That is another story.  Point is...she was forgotten.  Luckily, the boxes were still out so it was an easy fix.  Now the house just looks bare and sad.   Well, as bare and sad as clutter can be.  Spring cleaning anyone?

SQUIRREL!

What If...


What if you woke up and the laundry was already done?
What if all you had to do was drink hot chocolate and read a book?
What if the kids didn't argue?
What if the sky wasn't blue?
What if we used forks for cereal and spoons for steak?
What if cookies were good for you?
What if losing weight was determined by the amount time spent on FB/Twitter/Instagram and blogs?
What if politicians had to live the way think is best for the rest of us to do so?
What if the moon really is made of cheese?

Just some totally random questions to start off the new year!
