I don’t have a real topic today so it’s just a bunch of mish-mosh.

Watched my son and his ex-girlfriend do the property switch the other night.  It was heart wrenching.  They dated for three years and since high school romances are counted in dog years…that’s a long time.  I felt bad for him because he felt like crap.  I felt bad for her because I knew her heart was breaking, even though the breakup was her idea.  Breakups suck no matter what your age.

The oldest child at home is loving community college.  I’m trying really, really hard not to say, “I told you so”.  I feel I’m going to lose that battle soon.

If I have to hear one more person tell me about their trip to the beach I think I’m going to hurl all over their shoes.  Not because I begrudge them the trip…everyone should go to the ocean at least once a year, but because I haven’t been for more than a couple of hours in over five years.  I need at least a week – oceanfront – in a house – a nice house.  Now you know why I haven’t been in over five years.

My nephew and his girlfriend are having a baby.  I let him go “home” and out of my sight for a month and he knocks up his girlfriend.  They just found out it’s a girl.  The timing isn’t optimal but I’m secretly very excited.  He’s going to make a great dad.  AND I’m already shopping for cute girly things.

I’m loving my new space and I’m in there every evening praying, practicing yoga and even meditating from time to time.  I can go in there and my blood pressure drops.  My son came in last night and said, “Wow, it smells good in here!  Like fresh air.”  Yes son, that’s what a girl’s space smells like.

I found some samples of Retin A in my drawer that my dermatologist gave me at my last visit (I won’t tell you how long ago that was).  I’ve been using them and my skin looks better than it has in months.  I’m going to try and stretch the samples until my new insurance kicks in and I can make an appt with the doc.  If the samples don’t hold out, I’m going to their office and beg for more until I can get an appointment.  I have no pride.

Still don’t know what was up the boss’ behind yesterday but everything is back to normal today.  I think my head is even screwed back on properly.  Jury’s still out on that one.

There are lots of other people in the blogosphere writing about “moods”, “attitudes”, and depression (me being at the head of the line).  I don’t know squat about astrology but I know there is a blue moon this weekend.  I wonder if that has anything to do with it?

I have found some great new bloggers recently that I want to share with my millions and millions of readers (she says with tongue firmly in place in cheek).  Check them out if you get a chance, they have a lot to share and I’m loving sharing it with them.

  1. Let's see if I can reply here while watching Clint Eastwood speak at the GOP Convention.

    Sherry, I don't mean to “run-off” with your bloggy talking points, but, dam girl,, it keeps getting crazier. Similarities, that is.

    My daughter (she's in CO – grad school now) was studying abroad (South America) last year. She went with her b/f and yes, they had been together for three years. Not entirely sure what happened over there, but apparently it was a learning experience in many aspects. They came home and broke up within that week. Now I see him on FB as he travels out to CO for vacation. He posts, “I'm in CO if anyone wants to hang out – hit me up” – she broke his heart and that FB status made me sad.

    Not sure about the background behind that room of yours, but the above mentioned daughter's room became my scrapbooking/study by the time her rear lights left our cul-de-sac. I LOVE MY ROOM!!!!! And I feel blessed to have a space where I can leave “my stuff” out and simply close the door.

    I worship the sun, I need it for mental health. My husband and I honeymooned in Riviera Maya – um, that was six years ago. I NEED A VACA!!!!

    oK, so I spent our vacation funds on three years of education and no job.,, sooooo???

So...what do you think?
