And the miscellany just keeps on keeping on…
· I’m really glad that all my peeps in eastern NC are safe after all those tornados passed through. I feel kind of guilty because I didn’t even know what was going on until it was over & they were reporting in on Facebook. There was so much destruction – reminding us that we aren’t really in charge here.
· I painted my toenails this interesting shade of green. Not that anyone will see them anytime soon. I’m still occasionally turning on the
illegal hidden space heater under my desk at work.
· I think I’m officially in a spring writing funk. I’m even contemplating a bit of a blog break (except for the Project 365 posts – they don’t require writing expertise). We’ll see.
· Dr. M wrote a great post about the reasons behind secession. You should check it out here. He’s obviously not in a writing funk, at least about something near & dear to his heart.
· I’ve gotten so used to doing without a dishwasher that when I was having my most recent fantasy about remodeling our rental home that didn’t even make the cut. Right now all I would like is some sort of awning over the back door (so we can have a covered mat to wipe our feet) and a laundry room/half bath. Otherwise I’m pretty happy about our space. Except for the part where we both have such a long commute. With the recent gas price hike we’re now paying over $600 a month for gas. Just typing that number makes my stomach hurt!
· My niece and my cousin’s daughter (does that make her my 2nd cousin, or 1st cousin once removed? I’ve never figured out how that all works – which is why I’m still surprised that I was raised in the south)… Anyway both of these young ladies are just running circles around my generation in our family. J is on a competition cheer team & keeps winning championships all over the place. She’s nine. And K is a gymnast who just won her level 9 regional meet in New Orleans. Next it’s on to Boston for the Eastern Nationals. Are these girls really related to me? I was the girl who failed the vertical leap portion of my PE exam in college, although I could do sit-ups until the cows came home. The operative term there is sit-up.
OK, that’s enough for today. I hope your Monday is just as miscellaneous as mine!
