...have you ever wondered who came up with the idea of mixing flour, sugar, and eggs to make something? I wonder how many other "mixtures" they tried before they came up with something that tasted good? Did they try things like caterpillars, mud and green beans?
...generic store brand paper products are a wonderful cost saving idea until they are used on a frequent basis when dealing with an illness. (I want my Puffs with lotion!)
...are vacation days from work really vacation days when you still have to get up early to send people off to school and work? (this answer is easy. YES. Because you can always go back to bed and no one is the wiser. They frown on that sort of thing if you have to go into work.)
...do dishes breed like bunnies in the sink over night? Or are the dogs getting up and fixing themselves a late night snack?
...why does my cat insist that we watch him eat? Is he afraid he might choke on his kitty food and no one will be around to perform the Heimlich maneuver? Or is he hoping for sympathy as he has to eat dry crunchy bits?
...I am extremely grateful for underground power lines.
...apparently Louisville's new nickname is the windy city. Only someone forgot to tell us.
...all is quiet in the kitchen. It's still dark outside as I am typing. Suddenly, a dog with a sense of humor thinks it would be funny to slam up against the glass door on the porch. What a wonderful way to get the blood pumping. Better than exercise. (I think they've been showing too many ads for the new and improved Friday the 13th movie.)
...are you old enough to remember when the original Friday the 13th movie came out? Um...I might be.
...we are going wedding dress shopping today. I think I'm excited. I hope I don't cry. However, since cotton commercials make me tear up, I think I'm doomed.
...we are also meeting with the events coordinator at the church today. I don't think I'll cry. But if I do, I'll be using my Puffs with lotion.
...I still have one Christmas decoration left up. It's a bell wreath around my front door knob. You would think I'd notice it since I go in and out the door daily. I don't. Maybe I'll put it away today. Because Christmas is over.
...I will have been married 22 years this Saturday. Of course I was very young when we got married. Almost a toddler. And I'm still as charming and delightful now as I was then. snort. And petite too.
...okay, now my head is completely empty of thoughts. No, not really. But every one has headed out the door so I might try to take a short nap. Before my longer nap this afternoon.
