Character & Cooties


I've got some random stuff floating around the old brain today, so I'm going to join in with Keely The Unmom & friends for Random Thoughts Tuesday.

1. I'm going to do NaBloPoMo this month. I'm not so good at posting every single day, but when I saw that this month's theme was character, I decided to join in. I like that theme and think I can do some good posts with it.




2. The sickies are floating around the DysFUNction Junction. First it was John with a stomach bug. Then Andrew & Elayna woke up Monday morning not feeling well; Andrew had the stomach bug but Elayna had a sore throat, headache and fever. John & Andrew are feeling better but Elayna, notsomuch. Hopefully nobody else will catch the cooties.

3. One of my best childhood friends found me on Facebook. I have looked for her several times but never found her. I was SO happy to see that friend request! Her grandparents lived next door to my parents, and they were a very close family & visited a lot. It was at their house that I ran into the glass door and cut my leg up; Michelle was right there when it happened, and was my little physical therapist & nurse afterwards. I'm so excited to reconnect; this is why I LOVE Facebook!

4. Apparently I don't have as many random thoughts floating around as I thought I did.

5. Our weather has significantly improved. Yesterday the high was 76 degrees, and that's the predicted high for today too. I'm ready for Spring! I can't wait to go camping & plant a garden.

That is all. Happy Tuesday my friends!

Yeah it was nicer here too; crappy in the AM but got sunny. Florida (North Fl. where I live) is so weird with that stuff! happy Tuesday.

We were 76 on Sunday. Today we are expecting to drop down to freezing and get 2 inches of snow on top of ice. DFW airport is shut down and there are 775 closings in the metroplex. And the crud is headed our way.

Good luck with the postings!

With our -23 degrees, you are almost 100 degrees warmer than we are. Crazy, hmmm?

April said...

Everyone's been sick, huh? Well, when it rains, it pours! Sure hope y'all are on the mend SOON! I agree...the wonderful thing about FB is reconnecting with people from your past, especially childhood friends!

The Crazy Coxes said...

Holy Cow - 76! We're 100 degrees apart! I hope everyone gets better soon. how fun for you to "find" your long lost friend!

Nicole said...

I tried NaNoWriMo (obviously different than NaBloPoMo), and failed miserably. I shudder at the word smushes that begin with "Na." I wish you luck, brave soul.

Hope the house gets ungermy!

Happy RTT!

Good luck with the Challenge. That is a great theme to work with.

Hopefully everyone will feel better soon!

I like the character theme also. There are lots of ways to utilize that theme. Good luck writing every day. It's hard!

Amy said...

I love your random thoughts... we have the sickies here too, but only bad colds.

Danielle said...

It is funny that you say that one of your friends recently found you on facebook.

The same thing happened to me only a few weeks ago. I was telling someone about this friend that I had from elementary all the way up to high school and how we loss touch because our lives went in different directions. The very next day she requested to be my friend on facebook and to be perfectlty honest with you I wasn't that happy about it because like I said our lives went in to different directions (you know how that can go)

Just popping over from Random Thoughts. Good luck with NaBloPoMo! I did it back in November. It was a good experience, but I got a little blogg-ed out by the end.

I certainly echo your sentiments about spring! We're expecting two feet of snow here!

76???!!!!!?????? ACK!!!!! I am so jealous!!! I am very ready for summer. Although I am a little excited about this snowstorm we are getting. I guess I can't make up my mind. Winter or summer??? No contest. I'd rather have summer. Still jealous. ;)

NaBloPoMo.


LET'S DO THIS.

Jenny said...

I love Facebook for that very same reason. I get to catch up with all my HS friends.

This weather has been fabulous, but we are about to get 3 days of rain :(

Hope the heebeegeebees clear out of your house soon :D

How nice to meet up with you friend on Facebook. Glad to hear your weather is better.

Myya said...

Uggghhh the sick bugs suck! I think, I hope that they are finally leaving our house. YAY for facebook, that is awesome!

Kristin - The Goat said...

I love FB, too. Love it! I'm so happy that you found your friend (or that she found you!)

My husband has gotten sick with everything that has passed by this winter, but so far I'm sick-free. Hope your family gets well and stays that way.
