ok. This one might be a little “out there” for my typical posts. BUT. I have a reason (actually many) my daughter insists on taking my digital camera to Texas, which of course I agreed to but I knew it was inevitable that as soon as I do NOT have it , I will need it desperately. Guess what? I do.
Everything I wanted to post tonight, I needed to take a pic first. Gggggrgrrrrrrr…….
So instead, I will just give you some of my random thoughts for tonight.
*my daughter has come to the conclusion that Texas is WAY to far to drive or ride to in ONE day!!! she loves being there and is having a great time, but would like a plane ticket when it is time to depart for Iowa. :) no can do on that. I assured her that the ride home ALWAYS goes faster than the ride there. hummmm….that IS true, isn’t it???? 🙂
*I have a VERY lonely and BORED son. He misses his sister. Made us all realize how much time they actually spend together!! They have become such good friends and that feels REALLY good to their mother!!! I swore I would never hear myself say that. They used to have to sit in separate rooms for breakfast as inevitably, ONE of them was not eating their cereal correctly to suit the other. (gotta admit, it was MY son that was doing all the complaining!!!) and now, they are each others shadow practically.
*in the wee hours of the night when I would normally be waiting for my daughter to come home from work, I was sad, so my best therapy was nothing more than changing my furniture around. I will have to make a longer post about that sometime, but it is nearly an addiction of mine. If I had my way about it, I would rearrange my furniture every other week!!! This time it was my family room, and even though the changes are simple, it REALLY does freshen up a room in a wonderful way. I love it. If you are not obsessed like I am, you really ought to atleast try it. Sometimes, it is just a matter of moving one thing to a different location. Of course, it is REALLY awesome if you can find one thing to ELIMINATE from the room. :) yep, I do like the minimalistic lifestyle.
*Glenn literally spent 8 solid hours SCRUBBING down our deck today. I think that was HIS therapy from missing Zoe as well. When he does something, he does it RIGHT. It is sparkling!!! he even mentioned putting a coat of boat wax on it, to make it easier next time. I thought that seemed a little excessive, so I suggested grilling a steak for supper and he agreed. 8 hours was enough.
*Tomorrow to entertain my son, I offered to take him and a few friends about 15 miles away to a skate park. You would think I offered to take him to California where the PROS are. He was WAY excited. It also gave me a little “leverage” to make for a productive day today from him. Hey, all moms are guilty at one time or another!!!!
*anticipating a busy week ahead. I am doing TWO samplings at Hy-Vee in TWO different locations!! yeah!!! our local Hy-Vee wants to sample out “Simply Smooth” lotion, as well as Cherry Limeades. I think it will be a big hit. I am doing another radio spot the day prior. Fun!!! I think I will bring my son along with me, (if he will wake up at 6 am!!!) he will think it is neat to see how the radio program broadcast is done. Then two days later I am in Ankeny (about 70 miles away) to sample laundry soap there. I can’t wait!!!!
Am I being “random” enough???
Of course, let ME hear your random thoughts!!!! and maybe you might even have the desire to switch some furniture of you OWN around. Heck, I have been known to switch entire ROOMS with each other!!! it is SO much fun. Try it.
And most ahead, enjoy the week ahead, and remember, take time to notice your surroundings just a little more. You never know the things you might normally take for granted simply because you just ALWAYS know they are there.
