Random Ramblings

I don't really have anything specific in mind to write about today so rather I thought I would write about all the random thoughts that are floating through my mind.

1. Our server was down all day at work today and I was going through a bad case of internet withdrawal. Oh high speed, I missed you so much!

2. I feel so totally loved by the peeps in my blogger universe, I wonder what it would be like to meet you. All you guys that actually read this on a regular basis leave wonderful comments, and I find it exciting that people like to know what happens to me everyday.

3. Tee asked me what exactly Thanksgiving is. He says they don't have it in Australia that he can think of, so the definition is this: Second Monday in October (in Canada that is - our American friends celebrate it on the fourth Thursday in November); it commemorates a feast held in 1621 by the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag (natives). Lots of people use it to give thanks to God for all they have been blessed with. Many people just use it as a day to get together with family and pig out on turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, and all that good stuff.

4. It seems like Fall has skipped right over Manitoba - there were only about 3 weeks of cool weather and now we are into freezing temperatures and flurries!

5. I really need to pay some bills. I have been totally slacking in that department - we're going to receive disconnection notices soon.

6. My kitchen table is absolutely embarrassing because it's so horrendously messy. It's 7 feet long and covered end to end with about 6 inches of paper. The rest of the apartment is pretty messy too, boo...I don't want to clean.

7. I feel like having my mom's stew for supper. I always feel like that when the weather is crappy. Hmm, stew....dumplings.....hmm.

8. Since the husband isn't home from work for a couple hours I should take some time and do some of the drawing that I was blabbering about last week. But probably when I'm done typing I'll just curl up with a comfy blanket and watch tv till he comes home.

9. I have been having intense"erotic" dreams for the last 4 days. They make no sense and are so far-out that I'm embarrassed even thinking about them, but I've woken up out of breath every morning, it's ridiculous.

10. I think I'm going to add some more crazy things about me to my "Idiosyncrasies" blog page. I've been noticing some kooky stuff about myself lately and I'm curious to know if anyone else is like me.

11. I'm sick of charting my damn temperature every morning. Ah, the joys of trying to conceive.

12. The husband and I are going to Mexico in February with my in-laws and I'm actually starting to get excited about it now. We got new flippers especially for this trip - man I love snorkeling.

13. Because our server was down all day, I filed everything I could possibly file, made all the phone calls I could possibly make, took all the breaks I could possibly take, cleaned as much as I could possibly clean...well you get the idea. So this afternoon I sat and read a book published by the Associated Press about proper punctuation. And I'm such a nut that I found it extremely interesting and am excited to finish it tomorrow.

14. Wow, this post is really lame - any of you that normally read my blog are probably considering not reading it any more. Please do, I promise to try to be more exciting!

Actually the random thoughts are always the most interesting. Sorry that you are having to deal with winter. My relies (relatives) in Minnesota are living with the snow today too. One year on Halloween we had a blizzard, 28 inches of snow, I was stuck at my sister's house for 4 days. It was unbelievable. Hmm, now I wonder since you weren't that many hours from where I lived if you got that much snow too? Ok, this is not my random ramblings so I will quit. Hope you have a great day tomorrow!

I’ll be about 1200 miles to the east at the same general latitude in February. I’ll wave in that general direction. I love snorkeling so much that we are renting a locker in St Croix just to store equipment and bulky stuff.

I do enjoy reading your blog and care about many of you. I read you too Logziella, zig and Mrs. Zig.
Ali, I hope you do keep up your art. You are good and the more you do it the better you will be. I wish I lived nearby and could get you started on watercolor. It is so much fun!

LOL, Logziella I know I'm not pregnant, but it would be a nice reason to have all the sex dreams!
Amos, I'll have to find out exactly where you lived in Minnesota because my home town is literally spitting distance of Minnesota!
Reggie, I will also wave in your direction in February - and take lots of pictures!
Judy, I apologize for not posting your last comment (on the drawing post), stupid blogger said it was there but it's not, sorry.
I would love to take the time and work more on the drawing, maybe once my job calms down a teeny bit I'll have some brain juice left at the end of the day!
I wish you lived closer so you could teach me some watercolour stuff too!

Well, Ali, I am praying for you and your struggle to get pregnant. When I was first diagnosed with a kidney disease (after only being married for 2 months) the doctor told me that although it was possible to conceive that I should NOT even try b/c I would become really sick or even die in pregnancy!! I was devistated to say the least...all I really wanted to do was be a mother (even though I complain about it all the time in my blog). To make a long story short...I have 3 little miracles and it's all b/c of prayer. So, as your friend, that is what I can do for you to help. :-)
Love ya Girl!!

Logziella, you must be one of the most caring people, that I've never even met!
Your comment made me tear up, and I want to thank you for any prayers you can send my way in that department. I don't pray a lot, and when I do it's usually for other people - but for this I've been doing it alot.
My specialist is optimistic but it's been two years already so it's a little hard to be positive sometimes.
Thanks again - love you too!
