♫ Random Monday 01-11-10

Dear United States, Happy Palindrome Date!
See the date? It’s 011110. Sort of like HANNAH but with numbers. And now you know what a Palindrome is. ;)

Also, I wasn’t being selective by only including the US. I just don’t understand time zones around the world completely, and know it’s still yesterday, or already tomorrow, somewhere.

Let’s get started on the Random, shall we?

~Sometimes, it’s healthy to have a breakdown and just cry it all out. When you’re strong for you, for your kids, for your friends, for your family, eventually, the world gets too heavy. Crying it out seems to clear your vision a bit. Cry it out, even if it’s not worth crying over.

~This week is going to be huge. Like, see those three hurdles over there? Yeah, they’re getting leaped over, with style even. Crazy how relieving it is just to think about things on your to-do list getting done.

~I’ll say it again, because I can’t say it enough. Get yourself some soul-chargers already. Look around you when things get a little less-than-easy, and see who’s standing right next to you to help you hold things in place. The people that aren’t there out of inconvenience or selfish reasons, don’t belong. Nobody said being a friend was going to be easy. I’m surrounded by the most amazing friends ever. My friends? Irreplaceable, refreshing, spirit-lifting people, and wayyyyyy cooler than yours. I may be bias.

~I don’t understand the love for Taylor Swift. The girl sounds 12, and nobody liked her music until she wore a short dress all summer, and got emotionally beat up by Kanye. Which was crap, I agree. But other than her amazing talent at writing her own music, she’s nothing spectacular to me. I don’t get it. My girls on the other hand, are on their way to being her biggest fan. See? Proof that I’ll love you in spite of your bad taste.

~Home isn’t an actual place, it’s in the heart. It’s felt. You can feel at home in more than one place, and that feeling can shift without you moving a muscle, or a town.

~Reese once said: “Jealousy isn’t always bad..helps you realize feelings about things that you might not have noticed otherwise.” I’m not a jealous person, but this weekend it overwhelmed me at one point. And as much as it felt wrong, I remembered her words so clearly. It’s so true. Turn jealousy around to something good-realize the reason behind your jealousy, not your motive. Yes, they are two different things.

~Microsoft products are both genius, completely frustrating. Example? Excel hates me, and Word puts in characters that are completely incompatible with any other program. Microsoft, share the love.

~I pretty much love that even though he hates rodeo, he not only sat through one, but engaged in conversation and asked about my favorite things. Pretending to be interested in horses when you deep down he hates them? Proof this is real.

~Fun to me that “viral” used to be a bad word, used for things not worth sharing. Now, it’s desirable. Not in the nasty disease sort of viral, but in the Facebook kind of viral. Just what color were your undergarments this week? Just so you know? Actual foundations for cancer heard of all of the girly buzz on Facebook this last week and are doing things to support it. Amazing how fast things spread when catchy. I’m still not talking about the nasty disease kind of spreading. There is most definitely a parallel in there somewhere though.

~I do all of my best thinking in the shower, and driving. I also do my best confrontations and discussions in those situations. That’s right, I have shower confrontations. I’m guessing it’s a control thing. I’ve got to be in the vehicle, or on my own two feet, wet, and nude to feel empowered. It makes total sense.

~Time to wrap this up! Song, quote, picture time! In that order, ready?! Listen carefully.

"Children are like wet cement. Whatever falls on them makes an impression."

Yours Truly,

Very nice and soothing 'Random Monday Blog'....and yes I am jealous of your wonderful friends!

I as well, have constant battles with myself, in my head, over many, many things. They do end up fine, I usually lose the battles/fights, but oh well, it was worth a try!

LOVE the song...

To the woman I hope to grow up and be like someday. All put together with all the right things to say at the right time. Your truley do have something very special with your boy. And pssssst I dont think he hates horses as much as he wants you to think. I even have pictures of him on a horse. I know the time will come when you will only have one house and life will be so much smoother. Love ya big.

I had the exact same thing happen yesterday in the exact same place. I get it!

Microsoft putting in characters... if you are converting stuff thru MS .pdf and MS will insert "%20" if you have a space in the file name. They still adhere to the 8.3 naming format... It's a bonus feature from MS!

Glad you are having a BIG week! Soooooooooooooooooo exciting!

If you ever need to break down and cry - please do. Always, always, always remember, whose shoulders you can lean on. Your true, sincere, loving and faithful life long friends. Those friends who have always been there and always will be there - whether they speak up (or to you) every day or not. 'They' are there for you, because you deserve 'them'!

I totally agree with anonymous #3 - whether 'he' dislikes rodeo or horses or what have you...him sitting there, by your side, is so loving!!!
