Randomness all over the place

This photo has no signifigance other than to express how chaotic life can be.
This picture is an example of how busy the inside of my head is.
My thoughts are a jumbled mess, just like this photo.
There isn't any order to the thoughts I'm processing, however,
some of my thoughts are extremely colorful.

I saw the most adorable baby picture today.
It was a photo of two babies sitting in an old hard cover suitcase,
the baby girl was dressed in a pink tutu, a headbad with a pink flower, and a pearl necklace around her neck. The baby boy was dressed in a cute hat and a tie with no shirt.
So, upon seeing this photo it got me thinking about babies in general.
I love babies. 
They are so sweet.
Just about everyone I know either has kids or grandkids.
Having no children myself, it kind of feels like being the only smoker among a group of non-smokers.
I'm an outsider looking in and there isn't a parent or grandparent in the world who wants my opinion on raising kids.
I'm an observer.  I think I have great insight.
Most people put their children number one in their life.
I've always believed that your spouse should come first and then your children.
If a parent chooses to make the children number one, then what happens to the marriage?
I could go on and on about this subject because I feel very passionately about it.
My main concern with parents is that they enable their children by giving them everything they want when they want it.
What is that really teaching them?
It isn't.  It's causing more harm in the long run than good.
But what do I know?
I'm only an observer, not a parent.


I used to write a lot.  I enjoy writing.
When I started this blog, it was meant to be a forum for my writing.
But now, it's something more, something different.
I can't write what I really want here because too many emotions to express.


Have you ever had a friend just walk right out of your life?
It's happened to me a lot throughout my life.
Most of the time, I just let it go because that person's time has filled a purpose in my life.
No hard feelings.
But every now and then there's one person in your life who has effected you so positively that you never want to see them leave.
When it does you feel like a part of you has died. 
It's a grieving process.
Sometimes that person comes back from the dead, so to speak
and life is good again.
But it can't always be so easy.
Sometimes as much as you want the person to come back around,
one day, you'll have to put a bolt on the door and say, sorry,
you can't use my friendship anymore.
I've grieved you long enough and I can't do it again.


Sasha isn't feeling well today. 
Well, most days she doesn't feel well.
Except when we go on walks.  That's the only time I see a little bit of spark in her anymore.
She'll be 15 years old next month.
For those of you who don't know,
Sasha is my dog.
I took her to the vet yesterday to get her ears and eyes checked.
I came home with  four different medications.
I also asked about creamation services.
I plan on keeping her ashes when the time comes.


I have been designated as prize coordinator for our annual Christmas banquet for my camera club.
It's my job to solicit businesses for gifts to donate for our raffle.


More potentiaally good news to come later but I cannot discuss the details right now.


Tomorrow is my 16th wedding anniversary.
Woo Hoo!

That is a long time.

The good, the bad, the ugly.

I guess all marriages go through many stages.

Well, that;s it folks.
This writing wasn't thought out in an organzied manner.
It was completely free form.

So please, don't judge me on my writing skills.


Now pizza for dinner.


  1. Love the image of the inside of your head!

  2. It sounds like you have a lot on your mind.. some good.. some not so hot. I hope the negatives dissolve and the positives evolve.. and that you save me a slice of pizza. ;)

  3. I love this random post and now I totally understand the significance of that first picture and how it compares to your thoughts!

    Happy Anniversary first off! Second, I hope all the meds help Sasha, she's beautiful. And lastly, I totally agree with your thoughts on parenting! Sometimes observers are the best ones to listen to. And I would totally love to meet up for coffee or something when you're home for Christmas JarieLyn!
