writing from the light side

okay----i know i have been, well shall i say a little dark lately---so as i am feeling not necessaryly light this morning but kinda upbeat---i thought, hmmmm it might be interesting to just let myself go and write on one of these kind of days----

wow---where to begin----you would think with all the stuff going on right now with robyn and dillon, i would be writing my brains out about it---but for me, sometimes it is too much for me to share details---kinda overwhelming and stressful----i would compare it to when one of my special angels would have a doctor's appointment--and they were always filled with hard to explain information---but waiting family would call me asking for the findings of the days events----i found myself cutting out more and more stuff as the phone calls increased----too bad i didn't have facebook back then and could have just sent a mass message----anyway, did that make sense---i mean comparing that to why i am not writing about the wedding plans yet---

so what to share----

i sure wish i could make over my house---does that sound trite----i will share this about kinda the wedding--we had a lovely brunch and reception planning time with robyn's future in-laws yesterday----oh did i mention, dillon's mom is a master cake designer and caterer-----i know i know-----well any who---their house was immaculate---i still like them though---

these last few nights have made me think of all kinds of lists and things-----you know, i probably should have gone into the gift basket business-----

yes i am aware i am rambling----this is probably why i don't write more when i am kinda hyper and hopeful-

but seriously--it is nice to have the sun shining in my heart today, even though it is raining buckets---

it is nice to have sweet times to plan and dwell on---

it's a good day to count my blessings and plan for grand-kids sleep-overs---a great day to discover the Easter egg lights, i found on clearance this past year---to plug them in and get a thrill---and think, how i can't wait to display them for the kids on the egg-hunt day-

see rainy days and mondays don't always have to get ya down

  1. I can't recall if you're involved in the FlyLady program for keeping up with your house even on a busy schedule or not, but you should look it up. There is a facebook page, and a website, flylady.net they provide support and a plan to keep your house decluttered and organized on a schedule of 15 minutes a day. I love it and my house/life are a lot easier to handle now when I take it in short bursts and don't let it overwhelm me or feel guilty about what I didn't get done.

  2. No Mondays don't have to be bad, but I've never liked them. Fridays I liked, because that started the weekend.

    Remember "Blue Monday"? (The song - I think that was the name, by Fats Domino).

    However, good to hear you're on the upbeat.

  4. We are thinking alike this morning!

    The way I look at it, we can dread Mondays or we can find things to love about them. Those things are there; we just have to look. :)

  6. Does it make sense that I understand "ramble" quite well? At least when I can read it. If you were (verbally) firing it at me, at 90 miles an hour, I might get confused trying to process it, though. LOL!

  10. Take all the furniture out of one room and put it all back in another place -- one idea. Then, buy yourself some flowers, put them in a pretty vase, sit in your "new" room and enjoy a glass of wine. It might help. Churchill called his moods, the "Black Dog." Name your mood as in, "There it is again, the ______. You will feel better tomorrow.

  17. You wrote: "but seriously--it is nice to have the sun shining in my heart today, even though it is raining buckets---"

    That is such a beautiful sentiment to have about your day, and about life in general.
