Nothing special; life is good. Another week almost over with more random thoughts.

Thursday, December 18, 2014

First random thought: I wish I read what I typed before hitting the enter button. Always a misspell. emoticon
"Time flies" doesn't cover my days. Time is faster than a speeding bullet. It's 8 am, the next I know it's 2pm and I haven't had lunch yet! No worries there as it's portioned and packed daily.

Just when I think I'm becoming numb to my job, something else shows up that makes my "product quality" brain scream. I've learned to like the people in this "Island of Misfit Toys."

Must have been a bird in another life. The sun goes down and I'm out. I can feel it coming around the bend at 4am.

DD1 and SIL are the typical working parents trying to juggle everything. They got someone to clean their house...I'm jealous!

I'm still on the edge, adjusting to the fact that I don't need to be on alert 24/7 anymore for DD2 now that her beau is here. They are happy as clams. She's had a tough time in the past 8 years and so have we. I'm hoping I'll de-stress and grab control of my eating.

I've always got my non-compliant, medical disaster, hoarder, more often-grumpy 63 year old to play with.

    I used to be a fantastic speller but now I struggle with simple words. I find I can always spell curse words correctly though.

    I am alone so much that the only person I talk to most of the say is myself. I can still argue with myself quite well though.

    I am trying to go to bed at a decent time on most night and try to sleep until at least 6 something but it can be challenging.

    My mom had a maid. A succession of them in fact. I would love to have one but I would have to relate to them and it would require me to talk to someone besides myself and I'm used to only me.

    My son has forgotten we are still alive unless he has a major problem. So when the phone rings and it's him I go into panic mode.

    I have my hubby too. He is still quite a hunk but needs some honing in the manners area again.

    Heartening news there, and a new metaphor for me. Uh, but how can you tell clams are happy?

    Sometimes hard to accept that they are grownups and no longer our responsibility, isn't it? When did that HAPPEN?? It is an odd feeling when the kids start taking care of US! But there is this blessed in between, when you can pursue your own interests while they go about living their now adult lives!

    Have fun with the DH, there... and love your background tree! emoticon

    Yup . . . time in life to do for YOU. Kids'll always want a part of you. But we have the choice to pick and choose what part is available for the taking!

    I am so happy to hear that things are settling down for you! I know how it is to worry about a child...
    Hubby refers to his coworkers as "misfit toys" too. And, we laugh when we watch it on tv - he has each character figured out!!
    Maintaining a sense of humor keeps him going through the work day!

    When the kids were younger and I worked many hours per day, I had a cleaner come in every two weeks. It did help a lot and was so nice to come home to a clean house.

    No matter the message (although you do share some good ones) I enjoy your blogs and seeing that wit and humor peeking through. Thank you for sharing - emoticon
