Post A Day is Kicking My Butt, Part 1

It was snowing when I got up this morning. While I was waiting on my coffee to brew, I was looking out the window watching it snow. Then I noticed some little birds falling out of the trees like autumn leaves. I went and got my glasses, made my cup of coffee, and sat down by the window to watch. There were at least a hundred tiny birds, no bigger than a golf balls with heads, dropping out of trees and pecking around on the ground like they were eating the snow. They were brown with a little black on their wings and a fluffy tan underside if anyone can tell me what kind they were. I took a picture with my phone but you can’t see them.

The chamber of commerce luncheon was today so I called my son, TJ to come get me and we went. We were late because he would not ask his boss, who is his brother, if he could leave for lunch early! His brother TH, my son also, told him to tell me he loved me and give me a kiss. This is not usual and customary for him so I wonder what’s up. Especially since he came and took me to lunch last Friday which is also not normal. Hmm!
Wal-Mart gave the chamber all of their leftover Christmas decor, so they gave some to me. I have a giant box of assorted I don’t know what all and 4 cases of scented pine cones! It smells really good in here. The bosses son called to tell me he was having a meeting in my office so it is spotlessly clean now and the bathroom too. I’m glad to have that done since my dad will probably come by tomorrow to tell me happy birthday.

I was reading in The Daily Post about lessons from The Daily Post bloggers and all of the comments section. The comments were mostly about frivolous and boring posts just to get something on here every day. That describes my blog to a T! I know that most of my stuff is not worth reading, but the reason I signed up to blog is to create the daily writing habit. So when I discovered the post-a-day challenge in The Daily Post, I knew this was for me.

My first post just flowed out of me, with very little revision, like words from a natural-born writer. The next day I was brain-dead and have been ever since! I have wanted to write for as long as I can remember. Ever since I was able to read Highlights for Children and about how to send stuff in to maybe get published in the magazine. I daydreamed about writing a story as good as Little House on the Prairie or The Boxcar Children even before I was a teenager. I once started writing about finding a tiny person in the woods across the street from my house and letting her live in my Barbie house and wear her clothes but I could never think of an ending so I never finished. Then I read Ralph (mouse on a motorcycle?) and some other story about little people and thought people would just think I was trying to copy those stories so I threw it away.

Then when I was in Jr. High… (I still have work to do and have to go to bed…see ya tomorrow)

Internet Down

i never thought about my internet going down when I signed up for Post A Day! This is a test to see if I could post from my phone. Looks like its working but has been very time consuming as I forgot my password and had to reset it!

Wondering about Sandy Hook

I’ve been reading about the Sandy Hook Massacre being a hoax and I am completely dumbfounded by the idea! Watching all of the video of grieving parents does look a lot like acting but how could such a thing be pulled off? Wouldn’t someone recognize one of them? Were there really people killed? If this is all acting it had to have been planned well in advance and how could that many people keep a secret? Or if people died and this was a planned anti-gun thing, did our government set up the shooting? My little brain is having a hard time processing all of this! And if this is real what a horrible thing to be saying after everything they’ve been through!

#1 Problem: Deadlines!

I started my day off with a phone call at 8am informing me that the real estate man would be here at 9am after being told that it was cancelled!  The lodge was perfect… freshly dusted, swept, mopped, and even waxed.  My house on the other hand was not.  It had become the catchall for all of the Christmas decorations and everything that needed a place to belong.  It was on the floor, the dining table, and spread out on the bar along with last nights takeout food trash.  I rushed around trying to clean the kitchen and dining room as quickly as possible since my kitchen door was next to my office.  At 8:40, they came walking through the front door of the office.  I walked out of my kitchen, shutting the door behind me, to meet them.
