Table Topics Tuesday: So many, so little time


what bad habit of yours would you most like to break?

Oh, where to start?

My procrastination? The fact that I take on too much? That I cannot stick to a healthy diet?

Now that I'm seeing in writing it seems they are all related. Because I'm so busy all the time I like to rest when I can rest.

Thank God for Sundays!

And so I procrastinate and things that need to get done don't. Not until the last minute. Then I rush, rush, rush to get it done, often times forgetting stuff.

Like the candle I forgot to turn off when I left Sunday.

Being busy is also my excuse for a poor diet. When we have a function then it gives me an excuse to pick up fast food. When I'm relaxing I can justify that big bowl of ice cream by saying I've already "done so much". When I have time to exercise, I don't have the energy.

I admit they are all excuses because believe it or not there are people on the planet that make time for that sorta stuff. Crazy huh?

Maybe in the next 34 years I can get my act together. Maybe...

Now it's your turn:
what bad habit of yours would you most like to break?

The bug is back

I haven't been here since my last post. Over 10 days ago.


I don't know that I've ever stayed away so long. Even on vacation. And trust me this hiatus has not been a vacation.

There was a computer crash. crash, bam, boom, BROKE...

...senioritis from the teen... aid craziness...


...grandkids...etc, etc, etc.

In other words - life.

I feel the urge coming back though.

The blogging bug.

The Perfect Cure

This weekend we had a celebration for a combination of things - birthdays, Mother's Day, a new birth - and all the kids were in attendance.

I'm still trying to climb out of my blah-ness. Trying to get back to normal. Well as normal as I can get anyway. I can't say I've ever been quite right.

Nothing brings a smile to my face more than seeing their happiness.

See what I mean? It's almost impossible to be in a bad mood with them around. You can't help but smile.

Sometimes I wish I could bottle it up and save it for a gloomy day.

A little of him...

A touch of her...

And a ton of this smile...

Throw in a mushy moment...

Serve with a side of cake.

It would be the perfect cure for the blahs.

That word sums it all up.


I don't feel like doing anything so I've been avoiding everything. Blogs, Twitter, Facebook, reading, cleaning, cooking, couponing. Every. Thing.


I will think of something I want to do or say and then immediately feel like it's just too much effort.


Where ever the blah came from I wish it would go back because the next six weeks will be crazy busy and I'm not ready. For any of it.
