Snippets And Odds And Ends...

I get things running around in my head sometimes... I call them many things like wonderings, idiot attacks and/or brilliant revelations so I decided to jot down one or two... or seven. Who knows?

Do you know how to fold a fitted sheet? I do know how to do that because my momma taught me how many, many years ago when fitted sheets were first introduced to the market. The second part of this mind wandering is if you know how to fold them do you care whether or not you do?

Am I the only person who wonders why the advertising people pay people to trash a place and put leftover food out on the counters and blindfold people to see if their air freshener covers up the smell... when all they would have to do is go to most any college kids apartments without giving them notice and film it for probably a 6-pack and a twenty dollar bill and then lower the prices on the air freshener?

And, following along this line, has anyone besides me ever thought about giving someone a snow shovel to make it easier to clean their house? I didn't, but I sure thought about it...

Is there a gene that makes some people inventive and others (like myself) the ones without the gene that are saying, "Why didn't I think of that?"

What about that person this past week that won 14.3 million playing the wrong lottery game?... I keep telling our good Lord that winning the lottery wouldn't spoil me or change me and I keep getting the reminders that you have to buy the tickets before you can win... no matter which lottery you play.

No matter how much closer I move to where my sibs live, the older I get the harder it is to make myself drive to visit them... or even go to the grocery. Or maybe that is my state of mind right now. Just sayin'.

Do you ever feel like your doc is just experimenting on you?

Does anyone else have brilliant thoughts while out and about and then when you get home and go to write them down don't remember what they were? And how hard would it be for me to get it through my thick skull to carry a little tape recorder around so I could save these thoughts for posterity with just a click of a button...

There were a bunch more things running around in my brain but evidently they fell between the lobes while I was trying to document the wonderment of my thought processes... Next time maybe I will have more that I've written down or recorded to share with you but for now...

That's all, folks!

JoJo, all the liver functions but one are back in the normal range but the doc wanted me to stay on steroids one more month... my face looks like I've gained 40 pounds even though I haven't (only about 6 pounds) and I try to avoid getting my picture taken. I never thought I was vain but am trying to adjust my thinking because I found that I am... Carol is good, we are both hibernating right now even though we've had a very mild winter and both the pupsters are doing good right now so all is well in the middle of Oklahoma.

Laura, you and I seem to read our lives in each other's posts so I am inclined to think we are related... Love you!

Paxie said...

Wait. I must be you and Laura's cousin. Everything you wrote, I related to and yes, I can fold a fitted sheet :)

I'm doing a little Spring cleaning here...in January. Do I need it? No. Goodwill. The older I get, the less important anything is. If I have to dust it...it's almost gone.

The docs? Oh yes. Practicing on us.

Just got back from Goodwill and I doubt I'll even remember tomorrow what I took! LOL

Now I need a nap...

Big hugs and love you!

If I could remember every good idea I have ever had, I would be a wealthy and brilliant woman.
I really needed to write things down... make lists... especially after I reached 60. The brain cells are dripping out of my ears now. I think it's too late for any serious help.
Just remember that you still write a funny post and we love your blog.

Omigosh, but I've missed keeping up with this part of you!! I'm gonna try and do better, but that's only if I can keep my lobes together... ;)

Do you ever feel like your doc is just experimenting on you?. This is a very tough question, and scary one. I don't know what or how to react with it. But I'll think about it. Thanks for posting!
