It’s crazy how long it’s been since I last posted. The time needed to devote to any sort of regular posting just doesn’t exist. Wait. I take that back. I’m sure it exists, it’s just being spent on Facebook, Twitter & Daily Mile. The interaction on those sites is so much more immediate and personal. I need to look to this blog less as a source of interaction and back to the basics of why it was created. Brain purging.
Tonight my brain is full of so many wonderful things going on in my life. I continue to be blessed by God in so many ways through my family, my friends, and (news to some of you) a very important man who came into my life this past winter. The Fella. My fella. My love. My Solomon.
It seems like there is so much to tell, so much has happened in the time that has passed. I can’t go back and draft out all the details so I’ll just try and pick up where I am from today and move forward from there.
Today was a good day. Thank you God for the blessings in my life. Amen and good night.
The symmetry of my toes – they go in perfect order from largest to smallest. Too bad the largest is my pinkie.
My cooking doesn’t receive nearly enough recognition, or maybe I’m just not hearing the applause over the sound of the smoke detector.
Once in a while I am told how awesome my housekeeping skills are. Wait. Nope. Not me.
My ability to park straight between two lines? Uhh…keep looking.
One talent that I have that just begs for kudos is toe crossing. That’s right…toe crossing. I can take my pinkie toe on my left foot and cross it over the next toe over (imagine crossing your fingers, but with toes – yeah, I’m TALENTED). Other talents that are overlooked: whistling with my bottom lip pinched between my thumb and forefinger and fitting my entire fist into my mouth. You know you just tried the whistling thing and the fist? Grossed you out. Sorry…
My daughter NEVER compliments me on my sense of humor. But then again she’s 12 and hasn’t thought I was funny for at least two years now. The seven year old boy? Thinks I’m nuts.
