Past, Present, & Future

Tomorrow I will be travelling to St. Augustine to meet up with a very good friend of mine. It took 2 years, but we finally got tickets to go see the Avett Brothers. WHOO HOO!! GIRL'S WEEKEND!!!

Because of that, I am posting for today and pre-posting for the days I will not have a computer handy. Thus the title.

Past: At 2:00 o’clock today in a meeting at work, an enemy was defeated, and an evil, thoughtless, unreasonable, & crazy plan was foiled – for now. It was a small win – but a win none the less. Oh, and thank you son for helping with my homework. I could not have done it without you! Enjoy the candy corn! :)

Present: I am packing and getting ready for the aforementioned trip – while I open an inordinate number of birthday cards from the most wonderful sister on the planet.

Future Friday: St. Augustine! I love St. Augustine! What a cool house from AirBNB! So great to see you Chrissy! I miss you so much!

Future Saturday: Boy we had fun in downtown St. Augustine today! Chrissy is the best. The Avett Brother’s concert was AMAZING!

Future Sunday: Hopefully TBA!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Young, Dumb, & Broke

Apparently, this song can spill over to college students too:

I deal with this every day. I wish I didn't have to.

This is the future........

Too Many Meetings

Today, I have nothing. I had so many meetings today, that even usually non-vocal coworkers commented on the number of hours I was not in my office.

AND - all those meetings could have actually just been an email...

AND - I have such bad internet service at my house, I cannot even get a cute meme to load.

Play the Horses

My sister posted a funny post about the cost of things and what she remembers our dad always saying. 

She almost nailed it too - with one exception. On the rare occasion we went out to eat dad would always say, "You can have anything you want as long as it doesn't cost over a dollar."

I think he said that if we went to the Five & Ten cent store too. (Most of you people don't even know what that is anymore. Think Dollar Tree, only 50 years ago)

No wait, I think the 5 & 10 was our Grandmother. God love her. She would buy us a toy and even put a nickel or a dime in the mechanical horse, or train, or car, or wagon, or spaceship and let us ride for a few minutes.

That is the kind of wealth I thought I would have by now. Like my sister, I thought that by the time we reached this age we wouldn't have to worry about every nickel, or dime, or horse, or spaceship. We would have the 'Ride the Mechanical Thing at Any Price' kind of wealth.

I was wrong. So now I tell myself that I can have anything I want as long as it doesn't cost more than a dollar.

Here's to spending big...

Just By The Hair of My Chiny Chin Chin

I almost didn't make it today. Working 2 jobs in one day will do that to a body sometimes.

Thought for the day?

Being ‘over whelmed’ is different than just being ‘whelmed.’ Why is ‘whelmed’ not a word, or a thing, or a place to be.

Definition of ‘whelmed’: A feeling that you have more to do than you have time to complete, but yet, not enough to set you off in a full-fledged panic.

Just too much to do, infused with your own personal small time frame in which to complete it.

Today (and possibly in the future) I am ‘whelmed’ - and I don't know what to do with that.

Dear Lord, help me not to be stupid today.
Give me wisdom in everything that I do.
If I do make a mistake, please forgive me,
And teach me not to do it again.

4 in 1

You may think I already lost my drive to post daily since I haven’t posted since last Thursday, but really I haven't. I was quite literally driving.

Friday’s Thought – Wow that 6 hour drive didn’t seem to take as long as it usually does.

Saturday’s Thought – There is sooooo much work to be done in my daughter’s new house…and her Wi-Fi is as bad as ours now! Ahhh, country living.

Sunday’s Thought – Red in the morning; sailor take warning. I better get back on the road and get home before the storm sets in – but I want to stay with my daughter. L Also, a lot of rain and wrecks. What a drive.

Today’s Thought – If a chicken and a half lays an egg and a half in a day in a half, how long would it take for a centipede with a wooden leg to kick the seeds out of a dill pickle. NONE – because peanut butter doesn’t come in spray cans!

Think about it…
But wait, what if the chicken WAS a centipede, sort of???
