Round up...

Wrote an entry yesterday about my thoughts on the newest Supreme Court Nominee.  AOL ate it.  That about sums up my feelings on the SCN subject as well :)  

Today, in the hour and a half I am allowed to think on the days I am off work, I wondered about some things.  It wasn't a series of things, or a chain of thoughts.  Just things that I wondered about.  

Like, why is it possible to copy/paste by right clicking my mouse in other people's journals and in the comment section, but not in my journal when making entries?  

Like, when I say I am fat, what does that mean to you?  What do you guys 'see' in your minds?  

If the sky is blue because it reflects our bodies of water, what color would it be if we had no bodies of water?  

On that subject,  I am nowhere near water, so why do I see blue?  

See, thoughts like that.  They're what make me tick.  Its what makes me seek answers to my never-ending questions.  Most of which may not be able to be answered, but I have to try to find anyway.  I spend a lot of time looking things up and reading whatever I can.  

This obsession also makes me neglect other vital areas in life.  Friends and family take a back-seat if I don't keep myself in check.  Lately, I have been doing more investigating than investing.  In quality mother/daughter time, that is.  

Today, I was reminded of the relationship with my mother.  Mostly I was reminded that I did not want the same thing for Grace and me.  I am nothing like my mom.  I am also nothing that my mom likes.  Well, that's a bit harsh.  She likes things about me and I know she loves me, but we are not what she wanted us to be like.   

And I began to think.  And question.  

I need to make changes.  It seems others are going through the same thing right now. 

Change is everything.  Change is good.  It drives societies, businesses, and people to keep up and thrive.  It is scary.  Sometimes, change goes wrong.  But I think, for the most part, change is for the better.  

Okay, that part is over :)  

Gracie had dance class today and went pretty good.  I had to talk to her a couple of times, but other than that, it was a good day.  We went to the grocery afterwards, and I could only remember milk.  I think my brain is too full of useless knowledge....  

We arrived home with milk and stuff that was nowhere near my listed items  ;)  I was getting the girl out of the car and she informs me we forgot waffles.  She's wanted some and I think Mom gave away our waffle maker, so I was going to get some frozen ones.  I thanked her for reminding me....  

Mom got back today.  She went to a euchre tournament with a friend last Sunday.  She said all they did was eat but she had fun.  Next weekend, my parents are going to travel to State Parks that have Inns.  I hope I get a turn to leave soon!  Preferably alone :)  

Tomorrow is work. The weather is still supposed to hot and humid.  Hopefully, it will cool down soon.  I miss taking the daycare kids outside for buggy rides.  They need to get out after being cooped up in our room for 6 hours....  

Thursday, I turn 37.  I wish my brain would comprehend what that means... I still feel 20ish.  It's hard to believe 40 is around the corner and I need to get my isht together  :)  

Friday, Grace has a walking field trip to the local park that I'll be joining.  Those are always fun and I love watching her interact with other kids :)  

Here's something else I have neglected... pictures!  Some shots Mom of my girl for you.   Picture from Hometown

Sorry about your lost post onthe Supremem Court nominee.  I did enjoy the thoughts that you shared about what you think of when you have down time.  You sound pretty normal to me, LOL!  Happy Birthday! The pics of Grace were great!

Awww :)  Grace looks so cute!

I have random thoughts too.  Pisses me off sometimes!  I wonder about the copying and pasting in my journal too...what the hell.  Like when you go to save an entry and it won't save, so I try to copy it and it won't...I finally figured out to drag the text into an email.  Brilliant! ;)~

Change is good..or at least I better think of it that way seeing as it's inevitable!  The only thing constant about life is things will always change ;)

And hey, that useless information makes for good conversation filler ;)~

I have those thoughts all the time too...  :::sigh:::

And change scares me...as good as it can be sometimes, it is a scary thing.  

Gracie is just adorable, more and more every day!!  :)

Hey Cat.  Boy, you are pondering some pretty heavy stuff there lady.  At least you can get it out of your head.  Although, some of the stuff you covered today, I hate to say, I used to think of after smoking pot...back in the 1970s, when I was young.   But I never inhaled.  ;)
