Things I've Learned Thursday

1) Chilling comes easy when the weather is JUST right. Sam has the right idea. Go outside, sniff the air and then relax.

2) I've never felt so far away until I heard that my daughter in California had been taken by ambulance to the hospital after fainting and hitting the pavement, not once but a few times. I wanted to fall apart when I realized how impossible it was for me to be there for with her but then, realized that she has a great husband and is in good hands. (By the way, after stitches and tests ran, she's doing much better.)

3) The most irritating sound is the sound of my dogs licking their feet. I mean, why do it for 20 minutes without a pause?

4) What signifies home for me is find the local library and getting my "official" library card.

5) Why didn't someone tell me that there are huge spiders in Oregon? There was a hobo spider in our house and I about jumped out of my skin. Not good. Not good at all!!

6) I really can live without television. Single Boo and I decided not to get cable tv but to watch Netflix or do other things for amusement. It hit me just yesterday that I haven't missed it at all.

7) Single Boo and I are so much alike that we cancel each other out...from the way we slather (drench) our bagels in butter to only putting cream cheese on one side to loving Spam and grits and biscuits in the morning.

8) Skype is becoming my new best friend when it comes to keeping in touch with my family.

9) My daughters are 22 and 21 and I still announce, "I have to go potty." When will my vocabulary change?

10) Going up the stairs is the scariest thing for a roly poly, short legged dog.

What have you learned?

Oh girl, I hope your daughter is OK. Did they find out what caused the fainting spell?? Our loved ones do seem so very far when something like that happens.

I've learned that you just can't water enough when the temps are 100-105 for three straight weeks without a drop of rain.

God bless ya and have a beautiful day!!!

My dad told me something once that when kids are little they walk on your feet, but when they grow up they walk on your heart. Being away from them physically is a bummer, and I'm glad to hear she has a hubby that'll take good care of her. The only other thing I read how you jumped out of your skin about the spider, but girlfriend you need to warn us about that picture especially for the ones who have arachnophobia (fear of spiders). ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

Oh, I hope Married Boo is fine. I know what you mean about feeling so far away when a loved one needs you...

I learned today that J will do just fine as a first-grader. I'm so proud of him!

Yikes Simone, I hope your daughter is A-okay again. I can only imagine how hard it must be for you not to be there but you've said it hear and you've said it before, she has a great hubby to watch over her... and report in to you with all the latest updated.

Sending extra hugs to both of you. xo jj
