Finally going to get political

Well, well, well, we have a new president.  I took some time out of my day last Friday and watched a bit of the pomp and circumstance.  I think it's finally time write a paragraph and let you know how I really feel and which side of the aisle I sit on.

So there you have it.  That's how I feel.  It isn't something that I need to talk about or something that I need to throw out there to trouble the waters of friendship or fellowship.  I will say this.  I'm proud I'm American.  Just travel to a third-world country and you will have a deeper appreciation for our land.  I'm glad for liberty and freedom.  And I'm thankful that there is a higher power than what we can see and hear speaking the rhetoric that is promised.

The internet is a dangerous place.  I began looking up a recipe for cheesecakes and found myself watching a YouTube video of what really is on the inside of a kangaroo pouch.

I have a sick teenager here.  I feel bad because she feels bad.  I also feel bad because she wants to cuddle and be close and I am doing all I can in my power to not get her illness.  So I tell her she can be close as long as she doesn't breathe on me.  I hope the kefir keeps me strong.

I have five pair of reading glasses.  The dollar store is a marvelous place to get them - although they do make your pages seem like they are warping near the bottom of the lens.  But I can never find them and then when I do I find all five on the same end table.  I think they like to hang together.

My catering gig last Saturday was a success they told me.  Now I'm back to just catering the needs of the Chairman and co.  It's still rewarding but not as flattering.

I purchased something called Unstoppables.  I'm not sure why they are called that but they are laundry fragrance enhancers.  I just looked it up and their slogan is "smell like the lifestyle you deserve".  Well anyway, I put them in a load recently and one of the MYP came home and said that her friends said, 'why do you smell like laundry?'.  I laughed and she said it wasn't funny.  I may or may not have added them again to her load this week.  I'm a fun mom like that.

I am constantly running out of thyme.  I'm not sure if I'm wasting it or just not use it to its full advantage.  But once again, it is on my list to buy.  It is possible to buy thyme.

I'm off to see if I have enough iron in my bloodstream to donate blood.  I keep turning down the sweet American Red Cross Lady, but this last time she offered me a $10 gift card if I came in.  Money talks and I listen.

This is enough!  I'm feeling lazy and won't post any pictures today.  But it sure was fun to chat with you today!


  1. Sometimes, too much thyme is not a good thing. Jim didn't like so much in the venison pot pie I made Sunday.
    We are discovering that a little thyme goes a long way. It seems to be necessary in small amounts with venison.

  2. The thyme stuff made me giggle, including the venison pot pie up there. I never use it - maybe I should start! I do know it's good with rabbit. 😎
