should I or shouldn’t I?   Leave a comment

my eldest sister was telling me last weekend that I should seriously go back to school.
I have thought about it off and on for years.
The biggest reason why I don’t jump in with both feet is because I am scared to death I don’t have what it takes to get it done.
I don’t have any confidence in myself basically.
I want to have someone hold my hand and walk me through it and then I can gain my sea legs.
I actually sound like my mother.
I am a chicken, I admit it.
can’t help it.
The thought of doing something completely out of my comfort zone scares me to death.
It would keep me up nights, the stress of it.
The unknowing.
The uncertainty.
I mean what if I fell flat on my face?
who would want to hire a 52 or 53-year-old woman once I graduated from college?
The list is endless on the insecurities in my head.

odd one   Leave a comment

 when it is summer out and it is hotter than hell like it has been these last few days I think of spring, fall and winter.
And I wonder, am I odd?
I picture the leaves turning

and in the fall I think of summer, spring and winter

 in winter time I think of the other three seasons

  in the muddy rainy season of spring I think of summer, fall and winter.

I wonder, am I just strange or what?

I love spring
It is probably my favorite season followed very closely with fall.
Than it is winter and my least favorite is summer.
Why you may wonder?
Because I HATE bugs and I hate hot weather.
if it never got hotter than 80 degrees and there was always a light breeze, and no bugs.
I would love summer the most.
But it is rarely like that.
I hate the weather we are having now.
hot and humid and hard to breathe or even go outside in this crap.

Give me spring ,fall or winter any day over this crap.

If wishes were horses……….   Leave a comment

My Grandmother use to say this to me, when I was a child
“If wishes were horses, beggars could ride”

I hated it when she said that.
I always thought it was annoying.

I have to tell you I woke up sore.
I went to bed sore and I woke up sore.
not a good feeling.
My old body is tired of all this cleaning.
really having three days off isn’t good for me, because the very next week I am sore and tired again.

Wish I had about ten thousand lying around so I could help my son buy a house.
Wish I was a good enough writer so that I never had to work again, but spent my time writing great novels.

Wish my eldest child would talk to me.

Wish and hope my sister Linda is doing well and her daughter can get her back up here to Iowa City.

Wish I could see Keira and Kayla

And of all those wishes the only one that will come true is, hopefully getting to see my grand daughters in the next day or two.
