Total lagniappe


Today is Thursday.  I haven’t run.  I’m not sure if I’m going to.  I just don’t want to & I have a dental appointment to get my teeth cleaned in a little while.  Yesterday morning, I found my 3rd grader with the non-electrical, bulky can opener, trying to “open” her ADD med… ; ]  Wow.  I can’t get that image out of my head.  You know, you go your whole life & then see something weird like that & it just stays with you!  I never thought I wouldn’t see that ‘cuz I never considered it!!!!!! 

I love organic stuff…no secret there.  I must urge you to go to and check it out.  We use Deep Steep bubble bath cuz it’s organic.  I buy a dozen bottles at a time because you can’t get it in town.  It was so totally on sale this morning.  I got 12 bottles (17 ounces each) and 8 bars of my favorite exfoliating mint soap (whose slogan is “no fake crap”) all for under $100.00, shipping included.  I was so excited about it that I forgot to order shampoo for my girls.  I’ll do that shortly. 

Thursdays are pretty much the only day of the week I feel like “caving” as my hairdresser, fellow Capricorn, calls it – just staying in – I do love it.  I thought I’d walk on the treadmill…some days I just don’t want to continually go past contruction workers/yard guys.  I know they’re great; I see them most days.  The weird factor lies with me.  It’s just how I roll.  I also watched Max & Ruby.  Yes, it’s a cartoon!  My girls used to watch it faithfully when they were 3-6.  That’s why I watched it.  It just reminded me so much of them and that sweet stage of not having homework yet, not dealing with head gear yet, or countless projects & index cards.  I love having all those things in our lives.  I know we are blessed to have them.  But every once in a while, it’s just nice to step back & remember how things used to be.

So, I’m going to indulge in a second pot of coffee.  I’m going to get myself ready and reflect God’s love every where I can.  Then, before school lets out, I might re-visit the whole running thing again…sometimes running in that mid-afternoon sun, knowing I’ll soon be picking up kids, directing homework, laundry, dinner, bathtime, etc., makes me just want to get out there & grab a nice 30-40 minute run.  If I do that, I don’t think I’ll have an I-Pod on.  I think I’ll be craving the sounds of the ‘hood.
