Demons, psychopaths and werewolves …

Libs and I are early risers. I woke up at 4:30 this morning and needed to do a few things before I went on my run. Libs woke up about 30 minutes later and asked me if I had already gone running. I told her no that it was too early but that I would head out now that she was up. She said she thought I had already left because she heard a noise outside. She said that it sounded like someone was walking around in the flowers in front of the house and then she heard a tapping on the window. She said that she thought it was me or the wind. I don’t normally run around in our flowers so I got a giggle out of that one. But what concerned me was that THERE WAS NO WIND. I immediately looked outside and saw nothing. I was completely weirded out about going on my run at this point but I left anyway. Maybe it’s because Halloween is just around the corner, but I was utterly convinced that I was going to experience something unpleasant.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t see a demon, a psychopath or a werewolf!!!


Orderly …

I am horrible at math. No, really. I am THAT person. But strangely, I love numbers. I can’t exactly pinpoint what draws me to them, but I know it when I see it. And I’ll be honest, sometimes it only makes sense to me, HA! I mention all of this because today is my daughter Sidney’s birthday. She was born at 10:21 p.m. on 10/22 and today she turned 21 years old. How cool is THAT?!?! I like how that all looks and sounds! It’s just all so number-y! I believe I will also enjoy the heck out of her next birthday and maybe even the one after that … 21 … 22 … 23!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are orderly!!!

Too excited to sleep …

I couldn’t fall asleep last night and I woke up at 3:30 a. m. this morning.


Because after two months away at college I FINALLY get to see my son George today. It’s his university’s family weekend. YAY! And get this! Sid has arranged to spend some time with me today too! I get to spend time with BOTH my big kids! WOO HOO!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are too excited to sleep!!!

A woman on a mission …

I have a lot to do and only one day to do it all in. I am driven. I will not be sidelined by frivolous things and distracted by the mundane. I am laser focused. I … CAN … DO … IT!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you’re (like) a woman on a mission!!!

Cutting it close …

Have you ever taken a chance and made some online purchases hoping that they arrived before you left town? I have and this time I topped my own personal level of KOOKY. I had marginal room for error but I did it anyway! And I not only ordered one item, I ordered FIVE. I don’t mean from the same retailer either. No folks, I ordered from FIVE different companies and only paid for expedited shipping for one item. If you were wondering, it was for a pair of boots that I couldn’t pick up anywhere within 100 miles of my house. HA! Anyway, as of this afternoon four of my five purchases have arrived. And the last time I checked my final package is scheduled for delivery for tomorrow! Whoa. By the skin of my teeth! I am super happy that this worked out for me. I know that I narrowly avoided a few problems for myself, and I will NEVER do this again!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you cut it close!!!

Cleaning supplies and poor timing …

Sooooo I commited to a Mrs. Meyer’s Cleaning Product subscription and I can’t wait to receive my first shipment! And no, NEVER in a million years could I have imagined myself being THIS excited to receive cleaning supplies in the mail. HA! But I have been using their products for a while now and really like them! Before committing to the subscription I determined that I had enough of my cleaning supplies to get me through until my shipment arrived. NOPE. I am out of hand soap and I can do two more loads of laundry then I’m out of that too. Running out of these two particular products in THIS house is NOT an option! So even though I have an entire box filled with wonderful cleaning products being delivered to my very home TOMORROW … I’m going to have to go shopping TODAY to get more. UGH.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t have poor timing!!!
