Loose Threads and Random Thoughts

I promise I haven’t given up writing for capturing souls with that magic box, it’s just that I’ve been busy taxiing kids, touring Missouri and trying to keep all the other knives that I juggle up in the air.  Really, motherhood is not easy.

The Three of Us1.  I’ve been in Missouri since Thursday ~ flew in first class…  So.  Much.  Leg.  Room.  Our flight attendant was hilarious, swore up and down people tell him he looks like Denzel Washington. Ummm, he was about 5′ 8″ and balding.  But he made me laugh.

2.  I finally got to see my sister’s baby for the first time in 8 months.  Ohmygosh, talk about heart melt.  He let me hold him.  My mom and my sister both said he’s not too cool with letting strangers near him.  He even let me kiss him.  The love fest last about 30 minutes, then something snapped and that kid screamed his little head off.  But for a few minutes, I was in Aunty Heaven.

3.  The hubs rented a 2011 Camaro for our trip (got a sweet little discount ’cause it’s his birthday).  Loving the car, but if I hadn’t had a tubal 14 years ago, I certainly wouldn’t be able to have kids now.  The hubs hit the gas so much, my uterus is strapped into the back seat of the car.

4.  I’m totally obsessed with shows that give you an inside look at prisons.  I’m not really certain why, maybe it’s the “it’s like a car wreck and I can’t look away” thing.  But whenever one of those shows comes on TV, I’m hooked for hours.  The positive side, I know I can’t ever get locked up.  Not that I was ever planing to do so or anything but, you know there are times when that man of mine…  Whew, let me not put anything in print

5.  Being in Missouri has made me realize how much I miss the South.  The people, the food, the heat, I miss it all….

Where would you like to go for vacation this summer?

  • LOL @ you losing your uterus to hubby’s speed demons!!  

    • Girl, he was whipping around corners, revving the engine, etc.  I had one foot on the dashboard…

  • I just found my way over from Ellen’s blog The Art of Losing Myself.  I saw you were from PA, too and thought I’d check out your blog.  I’ve enjoyed the visit…you’re a smart, funny lady.  I’ll be back again.  🙂

    •  Hi Stacy, thank you so much for popping by.  I really appreciate the visit.  I live in Northeast PA.  In the mountains.  Surrounded by cows, wild turkey and other animals ~ so incredibly beautiful up here.  Are you from the same area? 

      • No, I’m surrounded by the same things, but I’m in the mountains in Southwest PA.  I spent a summer working in the Poconos back in 1981 with the Youth Conservation Corps….it is beautiful there.

        • Ohhhhh, I see.  Ya know, I’ve been here 15 yrs (almost) and still haven’t been to the Poconos.  Sad….

  • If I could take a vacation, I’d get out of the south. Ha!

    My son is in grad school at LSU, so I hope to go to see him this summer.  Hm, August in Louisiana?  My hair is going to frizz!

    • That’s the only thing about the South ~ the humidity.
