Swirling Thoughts. . .

Thoughts swirling, whirling through my head.  Want to be creative, ignite a fire in someones soul. . . yours, but mine really.  All I’ve got is randomness.  If my thoughts could be read you would see it. . . lots of randomness. 

Watching Dancing With The Stars. . . I wish I could dance like that.  We’ve actually talked about taking dancing lessons.  That would take a lot of courage. . . not sure that I’ve come that far yet.  Dancing in heels. . . not sure it would help my venture to lace my running shoes up again.  Why does my foot still hurt despite the physical therapy? Arg.

The kids and I just made a spice cake.  The cake is for a dessert I’m making for our small group that is coming over tomorrow night.  I enjoy our small group. . . we laugh a lot.  We’ve got two birthdays coming up in our house.  Charlie is almost 5 and Chanelle will be three.  Where did the time go? I’m thinking about the cakes I’m going to make.  I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do them. . . I need a back up plan, but I don’t have one.  I hope they come out like they are supposed to.  Family is coming this weekend to celebrate said birthdays.  I’m excited.  I need family. 

I like Mark Ballas from DWTS. . . he seems silly. 

Chanelle woke me up 4 times last night.  I’m not sure why. . . she only wanted me to cover her up.  Makes me feel tired today.  I like to tell myself that she just misses me in the middle of the night.  I’m fooling myself, I know.  I always think if given the opportunity I would love to sleep until noon. . . when given the opportunity, though, I still wake up at six or before.  I know why. . . because this is the way my mind works. . . from here to there and back again at a million miles a minute. . . I think that’s a woman’s mind.  I really do need a Nothing Box

Pie crusts used to scare me.  I faced my fear this weekend.  What was supposed to be a pie crust always ended up being a fragile piece of dough that resembled a torn and tattered map that had been buried for years.  I’ve refused to even attempt it for years. . . I tried again. . . it worked. . . is it funny to say I’m afraid of pie crusts?

 It’s not perfect. . . I was too nervous to worry about the details.  It will be better next time. . . maybe.  Someone just came to the door asking if I was going to vote Republican. . . I was evasive. . . didn’t think it was any of this business. 

I really want to learn how to sew.  When would I do that?  I’d love to make pretty dresses and hats and random pieces for the kids.  I wouldn’t even know where to begin.  It would be cool to put Chanelle in a pretty dress for her birthday and say, yeah, I made that.  We have a sewing machine. . . I’ve never turned it on.

Yes, this is all random. . . see?  My mind. . . I wonder if this is everyone’s mind. 

Writing like this is scary. . . exposing the reality of my mind. . . minimal deleting. . .only for misspellings.  It’s fun, too.  I was inspired to be brave. . .

cjs, if you read this. . . thank you.

DWTS is over.  I’m done here.

That felt good.

Now. . . will I be brave enough to post it. . . .

    You were brave enough to post it, YAY!!!! I know what you mean about a nothing box, last night it took forever to turn my brain off to go to sleep. It didn't help that JB the puppy hadn't seen me all day long so he was wanting to kiss my face and sit on my chest as I was trying to go to sleep.ReplyCancel

    Awesome job! Love the randomness…that's my mind 99% of the time. It's nice to know that I'm not alone…. 🙂

    It's not weird to say you're afraid of pie crust. I always buy pre-made…My sis and mom are awesome at that kinda stuff! I missed the gene somehow.ReplyCancel

    This was like reading a transcript of the conversations in my own head. 🙂 Loved it! It's great to be random now and then.

    Oh, and that pie looks FANTASTIC. I am terrified of both baking AND sewing. So you're simultaneously not alone and one up on me. 🙂ReplyCancel
