Today is my day to just let my mind wander about life and see what comes out. These are the easiest blog posts to do for sure, because I literally don't care how it reads, or what it sounds like. I'm not trying to get a point across, I'm just writing.
::People, it's fall. And you know what comes with fall? Candy corn! I love candy corn so much! And as much as I love candy corn, I love those little pumpkins candies even more. Now please, there is nothing you can say to sway how I feel about those little pumpkin candies, and candy corn. I've been eating, and loving, those candies since I was a little girl sitting on my daddy's knee. And he has been trying to dissuade me from eating that candy all that time. If he hasn't succeeded, neither are you. I just love, love, love them.
::.... and pumpkin. I love pumpkin.
::The DVR in our bedroom died. It was a terrible death, and took with it several seasons of shows that I was somehow going to get around to watching. I was devastated to hear that I won't be watching the last season of Downton Abbey, or the last few episodes of Dr. Ken. I also had a whole season of Lip Sync Battle going, all gone. :( The worst part is that now I have to watch regular TV in here, with commercials! People, I'm suffering! It is the worst to watch TV with commercials. But never fear, the new DVR is on it's way, and then, then I will have back my non-commercial TV and no one will ever take that away from me. (Sarcasm intended.)
::Maybe the no DVR in our room was meant to be. We so hate to watch TV without commercials that we rarely actually watch in our room now. How crazy is that? Terry has been reading a book of John Steinbeck, and I have been trying to get back in the habit of writing in my journal every night. It has been a nice change.
::When we started having kids, my thoughts never really went to what it would mean to me when they moved away as adults. Right now, we have kids in Hawaii, Houston, Provo, Evanston, and Twin Falls. Everyone far away. I guess it never occurred to me that they would all live that far, so that it would take a major trip to go see them. I'm not loving it, that is for sure.
::At least I still have Tessa. Maybe she will live close by me. (sniff, sniff)
::Last year at this time, the weather was still so mild, and this year, cold already!! Last year, we were still sleeping with the window open, and a light weight blanket. This year, we either have to shut the window or go to the heavy blanket, because I am waking up huddled in a ball, I'm so cold. And that is not a good thing, because lately, if I tuck my chin into my chest, I snore like a bugger. I snore so badly that I wake myself up! THAT'S not good. So I need warmth. That's all I'm saying.
::I haven't been doing any crafting lately. In fact, my craft room is still a disaster and it's depressing me so badly, that I have no motivation to get in there and clean it. :/ The problem is that I really need to get in there and do some sewing because, people, the black friday JoAnn's sale is coming, and if I don't get rid of some of this fabric, I can't go buy more! I literally don't have any room for more in my house, and my OCD does not allow me to have stuff just lying around anymore. Those days are long gone. Which is the whole reason why I don't want to go into my craft room. So much stuff just lying around. Ugh.
::People. Someone parked in front of my house again yesterday. I literally can't handle it, and all I want to do is say, can you not go park over there where you are not parking in front of someone's house? It is such a petty thing from me, and yet....... I can't stand it. Brother.... (Rolling of eyes)
::I miss my emoji keyboard when I just have my regular keyboard to show emoji's with. It's just not as fun. I do love me some emojis.
::For the first time in forever, I have no plans to travel anywhere any time soon. It's a little weird.
::Terry and I have been looking at new cars. It is time to down size a little bit, and so we've been looking at what's out there. Have no fear though, we are talking about Terry here, so we won't be buying anything until sometime in the spring.... That is his normal M.O. He has to research something to death before he'll actually finally buy it. He talks himself into and out of stuff with regular frequency, so unless I pitch a fit like no other, I'll just have to wait to see what we actually buy, and if it's anything close to what I wanted. It's just such a fun game we play...... (again, rolling eyes)
::But I do love the guy. I could not do this life without him. Absolutely could not.
::Well, I'm on Harry Potter 6 in my running world. I miss the early books that had a lot of humor in them as well as the thrilling stuff. These are always just so..... intense. I hope I can make it all the way through book 7!
::I do have some thoughts about Harry Potter books, but I'll save that for another day. It will probably have to be a whole coherent post though, not like this one.
::I have been getting rid of all the kids junk in my house. Every time we go see them, I take something else to their house that is theirs. They think I like it, but really it makes me a little melancholy. Don't get me wrong, I love the order that comes with having less stuff in my house, but it also makes me a little sad that the part of my life where I was saving their clothes, and their school work, and their other memories, is over. They have now moved on to doing that for themselves, and for some, their own kids. Time marches on.
::And I miss my mom.
::I'm excited to go see the Nunsense play that we have a couple of friends in!! I'm excited to see them perform, and I'm also excited to go see something in the Civic Auditorium here in M-town! I have only been there for piano adjudications, so this will be a new experience. We will be there!
::And that is it for me. Now go back to work!
