Peace Train....

So I'm listening to youtube..and cooking a meal for a friend's family. I hope your Thursday is going well. Music always sets the mood for me. If I am down, I look up some cool music to listen to, and it lifts me up again. Enjoy!!     ...

So I am excited...

Maybe it is just me..but I'm excited about the new thoughts 3.0. It is like a new toy to me..something to explore. Perhaps I don't have enough going on in my life. Perhaps I need a new distraction. Whatever the reason, here I am and I am here to...

My 1000th Post..WOOT!!!........

Well folks, this is my 1000th post on thoughts.com. I joined this site on Feb. 21st 2008. I was naive and dumb, having lived in a safe bubble all my life. To say that I have learned a lot, would be the understatement of the year. I have learned,  and I...

Cheese for My WHINE??

So, I've heard it said that people don't like to hear people whine. I know that is true, I hate to hear little children whine. Ugh! Today though, I feel like just one big whine would help me. So here it comes. Click out of here quick if you don't...

Wrapping My Head Around It....

As most of you know, I work with children. I've had a home day care for over 27 years, and I have been blessed with much success. All of the children I have worked with have been special and unique, no two alike. Some children come straight in and warm...

A Confession of Sorts....

I need to talk to you today about an issue I am having. First off this issue has crept into my life and it bothers me greatly. I thought maybe if I laid it on the table for all of you fine folks, you might offer up some great advice on how to handle...

Don't Fence Me In....

I think it is funny, this internet blogging thingy. It is funny that we come here and we put ourselves out there in black and white, for better or worse. We pour out our concerns, our anxieties, and our thoughts, like so many marbles running across the...

With a Purple Passion....

Who remembers when we hated things with a purple passion?  I surely do, but I am getting old. Today I was put on hold for over 45 minutes, and the purple passion flashed through my mind. I'm not much on cussing out loud, so suffice it to say that many...

Gathering Blue...

I just finished the book "Gathering Blue" by Lois Lowry. She also wrote the book "The Giver", as well as many others. This series of books, there is one more, is written mostly for junior high school children. In her stories she creates different...

Seriously Ill....

As luck would have it, I have been sick again. Ugh! I have severe allergies, and I think they have been worse the past week, than they have ever been. My head has felt like it is in a vice..and just so stopped up. My ears burn, throat hurts..just...

Trimming the Fat Out of Life....

I think growing older is good for me. I have figured out what is important, and what is just fluff and stuff. I don't have a sense of trying to please everybody, as I have learned that people just have to deal with their own perceptions of my actions....

Riding that Natural High.....

This morning I am riding on a natural high, one induced by exercise and sunshine. After work yesterday I met with an old friend J, to walk at our local park. She gets off at 4:30, and so she had already run a mile when I got there. I joined her for a...

The Emotional Wreck I Am....

I swear sometimes that I feel like a little row boat on a huge raging sea. My emotions are so fraught with hormones right now, that I would be happy to wash down the drain with the bath water. These are the times I despise being a woman. Soft and...

Lifting them up.....

I woke this morning thinking how lucky I am today. I am surrounded by people who love me, and at this time in my life no one that I love is suffering. I have spent some time on the death watch, and I am here to tell you that it is a life altering...

UGH and more UGH!!!

Last night I was on a food run for the family. I picked up some Cracker Barrel for Sunshine, and Wendys for RJ. Since I had an odd headache, I bought me a medium sweet tea (my poison). I should have known better than to drink the tea, though it did...

The Beauty of Nature...pics...

Hi folks, hope your day has been good. The weather is great in my little neck of the woods. We had a storm last night, and then cooler weather today. It has made for some stunning pictures, and I just thought I'd share them with you. I am enjoying my...

Walking the Walk...

It is so easy to talk a big story, but much more difficult to walk it. It is so easy to pretend all is well, but much more difficult to make it all well. Relationships are hard at best, and it takes a lot to keep one going. Long term relationships...

Brainstormer's Lights, Camera, Action.....

Leave it to brainstormer to write such a huge survey..that it might take a month to think/write the answers. Here is my attempt. 10)If you could be president/king/queen and there were no limits to your power or resources, what three things...

Everfybody Loves Me Baby...

Don McLean - Everybody loves me :-) Fortune has me well in hand, armies 'wait my command My gold lies in a foreign land buried deep beneath the sand The angels guide my ev'ry tread, my enemies are sick or dead But all the...

No Power..No Life...

Last night we lost power at our house. Boom..it just went out. R.J. and I were both on our laptops, sitting beside each other. We had just had dinner and we were just relaxing. Well when the power went out, it was like being shot back into the cave...

Family Matters...UGH!!

Just received a call from my 22 year old nephew B, he is my youngest sister M's son.  He called to see if I had his paternal grandmother's cell phone number, and of course I do not. He wanted to ask me some questions, to which I said he could. I...

Customer Service Pet Peeve....

We are all customers at some time or another. For some of us it is several times every day, and for some it is only occasional. I am of the several times a day variety, as I eat out a lot of the time. This being the case, I am aware of how difficult...

50 questions that I stole from someone or another..ha! 1. What is your best friends name? Karen 2. What color underwear/boxers wearing now? Invisible 3. What are you listening to right now? Sweet and Low by Augustana 4....

Slice of LIFE..

There is something that draws me into this new song by Five For Fighting...Slice. Just sends me right down memory lane and reminds me what life is really all about. This song  talks about how life was before cell phones or blogs, and even the...
