Brain Fuzz Ramdomness
I just can't seem to get my brain to focus enough to put together a well thought out, inspiring, creative post. The sentences just don't seem to want to come. So today you get my rambling thoughts. You get to see a side of me that my family sees, oh, so often! The rambling, topic jumping, unfocused side of me. Welcome to my thoughts. (Scary I know, but just roll with it).
~ I can't get this outa my head. Did you know crayons are made
from pigs. Yes, the lowly little piggy is providing your child
with a world of colors and creative fun. Apparently, stearic
acid is what our piggy friend provides. And that is what makes the crayon hard. One little oinker provides enough stearic acid to
make 75,000 crayons. There now, consider yourself informed! What would you do without me providing all this earth
~ Why is it everytime I gather up laundry I find clothes I'm sure I just folded in the kid's laundry baskets? Why is it clean up your room translates as "Put everything in site into your laundry hamper"?
~ Finally got to watch the recorded season kick off of Amazing Race 10 last night. Should be interesting. So far the team I loved is already out and the only other one I like got to the mat first for the first leg. We'll have to see as time goes one what comes out. I find this show such an interesting study in human nature. What will constant stress, prizes in most legs of the journey and a million dollars dangled in front of you like a carrot in front of a horse bring out of a person?
~ Why is it when I wear dark clothing, I can stay clean for days, but as soon as I put something lighter on it's like it calls out, "Come, come coffee. These clothes are too clean. We need a drip or splash. Oh tomato sauce, we need a splash of red-y, orange on these pants. Mustard come join the party for a bit of fall color of yellow."
~ Now that I have 3 kids in youth group, it's not $50 for a youth conference it's $150.00. "Lord, help!"
~ Does Barney never get tired of being upbeat?
~ Where do all my email address go when the computer gets wonky? Are they floating around in my computer somewhere or do they go to some great email address graveyard in cyberspace? In other words, if you've been emailing with me, send me a note, 'cause I need your email address back.
~ Gotta go get more stacking storage cubes. Buy 1 get one free at London Drugs this week. Those words are music to my ears.
~ Why is it in fall and spring my to do list grows exponentially?
~ What was God thinking when He made wasps and hornets?
~Why can't I keep my dresser clean?
~ Don't forget to pray for this friend, and this friend and this young lady
~ I really need to pick a paint color for my kitchen. This has been ongoing for a year! Why can't I just pick a color?
Well there ya go. A random smattering, totally flighty example of the thoughts that are flittering around in my brain today. Good thing I don't have to think of what to have to supper (it's been planned) because I'm now participating in this. Good thing or who knows what we'd be eating tonight!
