This and That and BYOC

Hello my little chipmunks. I hope that everyone had a great day. :D

Mine was pretty good. I got my laundry done, cleaned my house and spent a lot of time prepping and repainting a few hairsticks. I like to rework things I already own and make them look new and different when I can. I get something "new" and it costs me very little. And having little projects keeps my food finding fingers busy.

I heard that the Forest Service is finished burning out at Highland Pines and is moving on to Crown King. Yay! I thought the air was clearer, today. Maybe it will stay that way and I can hit the road, tomorrow. It has been eight days since I had a good walk. 

My husband is a moron. He just walked in the door and came over and zoomed his finger right at my wet hairsticks and almost touched them. Geeze! I had to tell him, "Don't touch!" as if he were a toddler or something. *sigh*

Why does he come home?

Mama needs some time out. Of the house. Away from males who drive me insane.

Now he should be asking for my laptop so that he can check his e-mail.

Yep. He did. This time, I got smart and reduced this page and opened IE for him. My blog entry was safe. :D

Okay, time for BYOC:

1. Last week we asked your favorite thing about being an adult. This week the question is: what is one thing you miss about being a child?

How slowly time used to pass when we were kids. A day was long. A week felt like a month, a year took forever. As we get older, the time passes faster and faster and faster. Shouldn't it be the other way around? 

 2. When you make a serious life decision – do you use your head or your heart?

My head. I am a planner. An organizer and I like to know all of the angles. 

  3. In relation to blogs….are you a never commenter, a sometimes commenter, an almost always commenter or a direct emailer kinda person?

I am a sporadic commenter. I will comment like a madwoman, then pull back and you won't hear from me for a while. Then I will sprinkle comments here and there. I often read posts that touch me deeply and I feel and want to express the thoughts and feelings that are whirling through my head and I click the comment button but I can't make it move from my brain to my fingertips. And I sit there, my cursor blinking mockingly at me as my mind is a sudden swim of blankness. So, I hit the exit button and run like the stupid fool I am. lolol I don't e-mail. I feel as if I am intruding where I don't belong.  

 4. If life was a flavor – would it be savory, sweet or sour?

Sour like a bag of green persimmons.

5. Repeat question. Summarize your week in life or in blogland.

My week has been busy and up and down. I didn't make the most stellar choices in food but I still managed, against the odds to drop 2.4 pounds. The Forest Service decided to burn the underbrush and we suffered through a week of nasty, smokey, miserable air. But those burns will hopefully save lives and property, should God forbid a fire start in those areas. I didn't get to walk, but I am still enjoying the fruits of my efforts on the road and I should be back in action, tomorrow. 

 So, there you have it. (I can't get the bold to go off! How stupid am I? lol) Oh well. 

Have a great night, everyone. :D 

Nutty stuff happens when you copy and paste. I ended up with half of Draz's blog page, including her header in my post. :P


  1. Great answers as usual...comments or emails - you always belong and when I see your name in my comments section my face lights up!

  2. I miss getting to play all the time as a kid.

    I use my head-I am an analyzer-note the root 'anal', as in retentive.

    I would say I'm a sometimes commentator, when the mood moves me.

    I don't remember what savory, sweet, and sour taste like-how about bland? ;-)

    Alot of boss treating me like an idiot 5 year old. Exercising, eating not much, playing with the pups, hanging with the hubbie. Farmers market, Sam's Club, weigh in tomorrow.

  3. ok, dork question of the day: what's byoc stand for?

  4. Yep, I am a planner too. Mainly because my mom was spur of the moment and it drove me nuts.
