Nine Minutes of Random

That means I have absolutely nothing I want to write about this particular minute so I’ve set my phone for nine minutes and have just started typing.  This should be interesting to see what I end up with. 

Mimi has just run off with her nail polish remover so my nails still look like they did yesterday…only half peeled.  It’s something a teenager can get away with but a uh…mature woman such as myself looks more than a bit odd. 

On his way home from work today Shaun stopped off at Whole Foods to get salsa fixin’s.  He makes really good salsa as long as part of your DNA contains dragon.  Seriously, he told me it wasn’t very hot this time.  I even believed him enough to take a small bite of it.  When will I ever learn?  At least I can blow fire out of my mouth now…

Thanksgiving is in a couple short weeks.  How can that be? I’m still not sure what we are doing for the holiday.  I’m feeling a bit lost with my parents having left us.  We seem to have three choices of where to celebrate.  I wish I could combine them all together. 

Today was Washyersheets day and I didn’t get a chance to wash our sheets today.  I’m not sure how I’ll be able to sleep tonight.  Maybe I can convince myself that we fell back on days as well as hours for Daylight Savings.  I’m always messing with my own head like that.  Sometimes it works out nicely that I can mess with Shaun’s head at the same time.  Like when every clock in the house is set for a different time…and none of them are right.  (they are all fast to different degrees) Although relying on a cell phone that self-corrects the time makes that a bit difficult. 

My Christmas Cactus is telling me that I had better hurry and get my shopping done before all the last minute shopper get out there and start crowding the stores.  I can’t stand being crowded and thus usually have my shopping done before Thanksgiving.  Of course, I can’t seem to stop myself from picking up some “really” good deals here and there. 

Nine minutes is up.  That doesn’t seem too random to me…

    Actually, it was a great posting. And you can breathe fire!!! 🙂

    I keep asking for lists from my kids and so far no one has accommodated me. I’ll probably do most of my shopping online, but I’d like to have it done REALLY soon. If they don’t provide me with a list, they’re all getting gift cards!

    I liked it! I find I rarely have anything worth blogging about, but I like to read posts like this.

    Ya know, just speak from the heart about what’s happening at the moment in your life or whirling around in your brain. It works! Thank goodness I don’t have to come with something every day ….

      I can’t ever keep track of everything whirling around in my brain. It’s a scary place!

      I’m torn about the whole posting everyday. I think it’s better than the posting once a month I was doing for a while. Balance, it’s all about balance, which I seem to be stuggling with…

    I love the idea of setting a timer and writing whatever comes out in that amount of time. You did well!

    Oh No, not the SALSA, its a wonder that that stuff hasn’t killed Shaun off yet!

    In case you have forgotten, I will remind you that you can buy more nail polish remover at just about any store.

    So, have you made a choice of where you will be spending Thanksgiving.

    How could you be so busy as not to have washed your stinky, wrinkled up old dirty sheets! God forgive that you should sleep on them for eight straight days!!

    Oh, your christmas cactus, now that is one beautiful plant. Is it getting pretty now??

    Happy Holidays
    Love ya, one and all
