Random Crap

I wanted and actually have tried to write eloquently about what's happening in my life right now, but I can't. I either dissolve into tears or start throwing things. Neither are really acceptable, and the last attempt was around 1am and I quickly found myself scrubbing my kitchen floor, like with a scrub brush, wearing knee pads getting a wicked headache from the smell of pine sol and bleach.

So instead of trying that, I'm going to just say a few things unrelated to anything, because that is all I can do right now.

1. Why the hell didn't someone tell me how good dried apricots are? Cuz, damn.

2. It snowed in North Carolina today. For like 10 minutes. It was pretty and then it was gone. I am just as happy it's gone as I was to see little snowflakes piling up on my dog who was laying on the deck as it came down.

3. I have completely forgotten how to dress for cold weather. This is not good when I have dog training, outside, and it's 38 degrees with 20 mph wind.

4. I think Allison Sweeney is one of the single most annoying human beings on the planet. Why did anyone think she was a good host for a two hour long TV show?

5. I'm going to buy or make a pecan pie for Thanksgving, and eat the whole damn thing. No, you can't have any.

6. I miss my brother.

I'm so sorry it's a rough time. Though probably for totally different reasons, I can identify with that breakdown-or-throw-things feeling.
Just hang in there, girl. I'm around if you need to send an email or ten. :)

Sounds like things are kinda sucky right now, but I'm glad you discovered dried apricots. They make everything better. ;)

If you eat too many dried apricots, you'll spend time in the crapper. (Maybe that's just me).

Allison is much better than Caroline Rhea was, I think, but I'm not watching the show now, since it is opposite my favorite! All I could ever think about when CR was on the show was that she needed to be a contestant.

Hope your problems magically go away!

I also recommend hourly doses of these guys:

Nothing says "Everything's gonna be okay" like a cold wet nose.

Except maybe a really good spider roll.

But srsly girl... WTF?

Doctor Err said...

i have cold noses and will make you your own pie.
hell,my mom was going to make us our own little turkey so we'd have left overs.

and you can throw things here. my door to my garage is proof that i've done it a time or two.

keep breathing (not the fumes) 43 more days... things will get measurably better.

For crissakes, JC,DO NOT MIX PINE SOL AND BLEACH. It is REALLY BAD for you.

Does Pine Sol have ammonia in it?

Jenny-girl, you need to keep in mind that you are not alone and need not face things alone. Ever.

P.S. I'll bet I get some of that pecan pie.... ;)

Use Clear Karo Syrup for the pie.

The rest? ((((((Hugs)))))).
