Monday musings

Monday! It's the day I try to get everything I'm supposed to do all week done.

I'm not sure why I do this to myself. Call me an optimistic over-achiever. Call me loco. Call me. No kidding, it's a little quiet around here. I love e-mail...but I love a phone call, too. Phone calls are so human. So personal. So absolutely derailing of everything I have to do.

Here are some things I've been thinking about today:

How come I can't figure out how much of the pasta box to pour into the boiling water to make just the right amount?

How come now that I'm not supposed to eat peanut butter, all I can think about is eating the peanut butter in those little tubs I swiped from the hotel I stayed at in Atlanta?

How come I decided to reduce the size of my laundry room when we built our house? It's too small to even turn around in, for pity's sake.

How come I'm having night sweats, but not hot flashes? I'd enjoy a good hot flash during these cold days.

How come Francie likes to lick the shower door track?

How come I drip something on myself every time I eat? My dad does that. Is it genetic?

I had a day chock-full of things to do, items to cross off my list, laundry to fold, food to cook, life to lead, and yet I still had time to ponder all of those thoughts.

I lead a fascinating, fulfilling life. No question.


  1. Oh you crack me up!!! And your link in your signature works fine for me... See? Here I am!

  2. There is no mystery regarding the pasta. You pour what you think you will need then add more. If you do that, you will always have just the right amount. The truth is, you can never have too much.

    All the other crap you have to figure out yourself.

  3. When I build a laundry room I plan to have it in a walk in closet the size of my bedroom and located just off my bathroom. Just take the clothes out and hang um up. Check out my blog at

  4. How come you can make the mundane musings of life sound so amusing? I can't do that!!
