A line in a Dr. Seuss book …

This morning’s laughter started early here. Which is always a good way to begin the day! To be honest, I was so sleepy when I woke up that I’m not really sure what happened was all that funny. But it certainly got me going, so I’ll take it.

Despite waking up before my alarm clock went off this morning I just laid in my bed until the last possible minute. Libs usually gets herself up, but I always make sure she is up by a certain time. She has a range of when she likes to get up. But because I didn’t want to get up, I pushed it to the very end.

Now, I have been known to wake my kids up in silly ways, with songs, etc. but today was not one of those days. I had one job to do in my groggy state and that was to tell Libs what time it was and that she needed to get up and start getting ready for school. No fun or funniness planned just sharing some pertinent information. And that is exactly what I did … and then I immediately started laughing.

LIBBY LU, IT’S 6:42!

OK, maybe it’s not that funny to randomly find yourself rhyming when you are wide awake and it’s the middle of the day. But it sure was when I could hardly keep my eyes open! Libs just looked at me and shook her head. I’m sure deep down she thinks I waited until that exact time, just so I could say it that way. But I promise, I didn’t! I guess after 17 years of waking my kids up with laughter, being funny just seems to come naturally.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you sound like a line in a Dr. Seuss book!!!

Exactly what we’ve needed …

Three days into our Spring Break and I can say that it’s already been a ton of fun. It’s been wonderful hanging out with my sweet girls and spending time with our family … with NO time constraints. We have spent our days doing everything and nothing, HA! Normal bedtimes are out the window. Routines, ditched. Sleeping in, a must. Laughter and laziness, a given. I absolutely LOVE IT!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you get exactly what you needed!!!

Link weenie …

I absolutely love autocorrect. It cracks me the HECK up. My phone has come up with some DOOZIES too. And today I witnessed, quite possibly, the best autocorrection EVER. It happened when I was voice texting a shopping list and I got to the word “linguine”. Reading over my list after I finished it, I discovered the “correction” and I was honestly baffled at first. It was SO CRAZY that even I had no clue what I meant. Then the humor rushed in. Seriously, I’ll be laughing about this one for YEARS.

LIN … GUINE.

Ahahahahahahahahahaha!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you get to say LINK WEENIE out loud, question your sanity, then laugh hysterically!!!

Butter …

I can laugh at myself. Which is a REALLY good thing. I find myself in some pretty peculiar situations almost every day of my life so I feel laughter is essential for my survival at this point. HA! Some of these situations are absolutely baffling. HOW THE HECK DID THIS HAPPEN? Some are, sadly, “old hat”. HERE WE GO AGAIN. And then there are other situations that are so revealing about me and my personality that I can’t help but CRACK THE HECK UP.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t find butter smeared all over your smartphone!!!

Go with the flow …

Winding down from the past eight days hasn't been easy. Coming home to a house that is down so many in numbers has just been weird. And of course now it's time to get ready for Libs' and Reese's first day of school next week AND their birthdays.

Life is ALWAYS busy. At least mine is. And I love it. I don't mean the busyness. I mean the "life" part. My life is never boring. It's full of change. It's full of happiness and pain. We have great times and we have struggles. It simply amazes me that it all keeps moving fluidly. And we just glide along with all of it mapping out a new course as each day passes.

I agree that times can be hard. I'm currently in one. I'm grieving the changes in our family. I miss my kids and what was. But I know I'll adapt and figure it all out. That is the beauty that comes with accepting life as it is and as it should be. It will come. This time might be difficult but my life is still incredible. I still laugh and enjoy every crazy mixed-up and turned around situation I find myself in. And I love and adore the people who I have chosen and who have chosen me share them with. We drift through this life together like a stream. My life takes many twists and turns. I don't always see what lies beneath the water. Heck, sometimes I don't want to. But it's all a part of this magnificent opportunity we have been given time and time again … to find joy in each new day. And as long as I have breath, no matter what I may be facing, I will seek it.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you go with the flow!!!
