Here are the random thoughts running around in my head today…
I’m loving the compliments I’ve been getting on my hair!!
I’m wondering what kind of caterpillar is eating the seed pods of my baptisia – a plant that is supposed to be “virtually” pest-free
Glad that DD’s friend is inviting her to go to New York City with her. I think it will be a great experience for her. The friend’s dad grew up in the city and knows where to go and not go!
I’m trying to get my summer plans ready so I can avoid the dreaded cries of “I’m bored, there’s nothing to do here” that occur almost daily through out summer vacation
I’m loving those fresh strawberries and I can see the raspberries starting to form – yum yum
I’m not looking forward to boot camp. I hope I don’t embarass myself. I do really want to get an exercise habit started and I hope this will help. We’ll see.
Have been doing some reading now – need to update my total and see where I am with the 1500 book challenge.
What’s on your mind today? Let me know by leaving a comment. I’d love to hear from you.
Here are the random thoughts floating around in my head today…
I decided to try out DH’s new toy – a battery tester. Discovered that all the pedometers needed to have new batteries. Got some for my first pedometer and went out for my walk. Still not tracking my steps correctly! So very frustrating.
I did get my hair cut but I’m not real happy with it. We talked about how I was coloring it and letting it grow long to keep my family happy. She thought the color and the length were okay but that it needed to be layered some to get rid of the bulkiness. I wish she had cut more off the top layer, it is still at the awkward stage where it doesn’t do what I want it to do. I suppose I could have asked her to do it but by that time I just wanted to go home and have a good cry.
I always take a book with me in case I have to wait and I had the book One Perfect Word by Debbie Macomber with me. The book tells how the author picks one word each year to study and focus on. The stylist commented on the book and soon we were talking about some of the words that the author had chosen. The stylist said that she had just done her first “dream board” and was finding things she had chosen to put on it coming true. That lead into a discussion about what my word/vision for me was. Well I didn’t really have one and that coupled with the whole discusssion about my hair made me very emotional.
I do feel like I have lost part of myself these past few years. I used to say I’d get back to doing things for me and my enjoyment when DS went to school. Well, he’s in second grade and I’m still just passing the days away. I did come up with my six goals to reach by the time I’m sixty but they haven’t really given me the push to change my daily routine. I’m not sure what I really want but I do know it isn’t what I’ve got now.
Enough of this – I need to get moving. The laundry is calling. I’ll be back on Thursday.
Here are today’s random thoughts …
I’m happy because DH is making dinner tonight – great v-day present for me.
I’m planning to get my hair cut/trimmed?? tomorrow at the Great Clips sale.
I’m wondering if I’m getting sick or just suffering the effects of menopause. I’m having trouble sleeping because of night sweats and several awakenings every night. I’m hot and then cold can’t seem to find a happy medium. Took a 2 hour nap this morning but still feel yucky.
I’m hungry but not for anything I have in the house.
I need to do tax stuff but I really don’t want to. I do want to go back to bed.
Off to try to find something to eat and hopefully the energy to do something today.
Here are the random thoughts in my head this week –
It was nice to get together with friends last week. I wish I could do it more but everyone is always so busy.
Still debating the hair thing. Don’t know what I am going to do.
Was beautiful here and we did some garden clean up tasks. DH pruned the fruit trees and DS helped me toss them over the hillside.
Why can’t they come up with something organic that will kill the weeds forever??
My bulbs are coming up – I transplanted some of them and bought some new daffodil bulbs. Can’t wait to see how they turn out.
Gave blood today – almost didn’t because the iron in one finger was too low but when they did the second finger I was okay. Weird how that works.
Got my ears repierced on Saturday. DD had been wanting hers done so we went together. So far no problems . Just need to keep on cleaning them and turning them. Will be nice to wear earrings again.
Need to get a few things done around here before I pick up the kids for karate.
Be back on Thursday with an update on this week’s tasks – hmm – does gardening count as exercise?
