    Theories...

    In an attempt to embrace my father's favorite genre of science fiction, I am currently starting The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series of books. I have 888 pages to read! I am out of my literary comfort zone, but I am broadening my horizons.  Thanks, Dad!

    We're All Mad Here...


    Yep. We're ALL mad here! Maybe it has something to do
    with this dastardly weather! Gah!

    I could survive there forever!

    Carnations...


    I've been stopping and smelling the roses lately. And I have come to the
    conclusion that I prefer carnations. Heh.

    So very true.

    I Miss Bookstores...


    I truly miss bookstores. I used to have one nearby and it closed. I'm not one to travel across the city just to get a book, but I may have to soon. I miss the whole bookstore experience. Just the smell of a bookstore has a way of soothing my soul and recharging my emotional batteries.

    Shit Brownie...


    This made me laugh so hard! I had to post it! It's too funny NOT to share!

    Motherhood = Mania...


    Wow. I never thought of it like this, but I sure can see how the two
    can relate to each other. Heh.

    Best Friends...

    Liv stayed home from school yesterday because she had been up all night long vomiting. The poor kid never slept Thursday night. Java watched over her all day and made her feel better. Best friends forever!

    Let Go...


    Sometimes, you have to let go in order to receive what you need. When you least expect it, you wind up getting it.

    Hollow City...


    A couple of months ago, I preordered this book for my Nook. It became available yesterday and I downloaded it and started reading it right away. It's the sequel to Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. So far, I am intrigued by it. Yay for reading!

    You Have No Idea...

    Seriously. You have no idea what I DON'T post, but wish I could.

    Talk to Me...


    This is so true. I speak to a lot of people every single day. The ones who can hold an intelligent conversation with me are the ones who get my undivided attention. Anything spoken without intelligence is pure drivel and toxic to my ears. 

    Saturday, January 11, 2014

    True...


    So very, very true...in so many ways.

    You can never go wrong with homemade yogurt for lunch. Yum!

    Time to Make the Donuts...

    Well, after a two-week winter break, followed by two snow days, it's time to go back to work.
    I'm ready, except for my scrambled vacation brain. Time to get back into the groove.

    Hell Has Frozen Over...


    My school district, which NEVER closes, has closed for a second day in a row due to life-threatening cold temperatures.

    I believe that hell has, indeed, frozen over. Wow. Just wow.

    CLOSED...

    My school district decided to close all the schools today because of dangerously cold temperatures, wind, and snow drifts. I realize the picture above does not correspond to this post, but I just could not stand looking at -18 temps anymore. I needed something a little...warmer. Heh. 
     
    Record cold temperatures, people. It will actually be almost fifty degrees warmer at the North Pole than it will be here today.  Un-fucking-believable!

    Weather...


    The entire state of Minnesota will not have public schools open on Monday and Tuesday because of severe temperatures. The Mayor of Chicago says the schools here will still be in session no matter what the temps are. 

    Maybe I should move to Colorado. They're having a lot more fun there. Heh.

    Trust...




    Jack is such a good boy for me every time I give him a haircut!  
    I love that he lets me do it!  And I'm so good at it now!  I do only a little with the clippers in the back and the blending with scissors all around.  He trusts that I will do a good job and not hurt him, which is a huge deal because of his autism.
     
    Just look at that happy face!  You can't buy that kind of happiness!

    Get Out There and Live...

    Words to live by...
    Get off your ass and live because it's the only life you'll get while you're here.

    Relax...


    This speaks volumes to me. It is so true.
