New Trends

There are trends and happenings and goings on around me that I don’t totally understand. I will admit that there are a few times, when listening to teenagers, I feel old because I don’t totally understand what is playing out. For instance, Gangnam Style. There have been plenty of opportunities for this song and dance style in my life, but they were all mocking. Was I supposed to really like this song? I feel like the only one who got the joke, but maybe the joke is really on me because that music is off the chain. I don’t even…

I’m a Rebel, Dottie

I was flipping through Pinterest one day and came across a DIY blog that had a well  written author and cute ideas. I saved the blog to my bookmarks.  This morning, when I woke at five because my internal clock obviously functions on New York time (I don’t have the answers you are looking for), I read my bible, read a devotional, checked my emails, prayed for a few people on my mind, read through my list of blogs in my bookmarks; you know. The yoosh.  So this new blog, which has decidedly been removed from my list, hasn’t made…

Sometimes I Can’t Sleep

So I toss and turn until my brain gets so full I have to do something about it. I guess I’ll write to you people. Because I like you. The birds are up and at ’em. Boy howdy, those guys sure like to make some noise in the four o’clock hour. I like it though. We have so many trees in our neighborhood, there’s bound to be a good nest or two to study in the fall with the kiddos.  Homeschooling again excites me. We have submitted most of our paperwork to the online school in which the kids will…

Listen Here People

I have something to say. Well, probably, but I cannot think of it straight off. So I’ll ramble on, which, jayehs, is a great song. Thank you Led Zeppelin. You have helped me through many a night. Ramble One (or two in case you thought that Zeppelin bit was a tad random): This week I am finishing my first session of professing. Most of you know, but any of you newbies may not have heard I teach English as a professor at the local community college. It’s the most favorite of every job I have ever had. I feel it…

Nonsense- It’s why you are here

So why don’t I just lay it all out there: A) I want Stephanie Meyer to finish writing Midnight Sun. I don’t care if she publishes it; just send me my own copy. I don’t need a cover. I need more than 12 chapters of life from Edward’s point of view, that’s what I need. 2) My kid and I are taking another kid and another lady to a Women of Faith for teens conference in Roseville this weekend. I am so excited I may forget to do anything else. We leave Friday. We get to go to the movies,…

Five Minute Friday

Don’t fight it. Write for five minutes for this Friday’s blog link. No editing. No back tracking. Just write. Topic? Opportunity. Ready. Steady. Go. First of all, I am going to be typing a whole lots more slowly than usual because I may teype quickly, but there are SO many mistakes. Point proven with how I wrote the word “Type”. Opportunity? Oh we all have so many each day, every second. I know I do. I fail to make the most of most of them. I succeed in over thinking most of the ones I jump after. And if I…
