When I got my computer fixed, the fixer said that all the new parts I got I needed a new case.

So I said sure.

When he brought my beloved home, I was so tickled.

It glows.

Inside and out.

It makes me look like a computer nerd.

Have you ever gone to a party where the hostess always has it together?



Then at this particular party, the hostess got all hormonal and couldn’t pull herself together?

Your best friend in the whole world decided to get into a fight with you and ended up in a puddle.

By this time, you are ready to walk out the door.

Just as you are grabbing your purse, a little bit of sugar walks in.

Just a little bit of sugar and cream, but she is a breath of fresh air.

She actually brings the temperature of the party back where it is supposed to be.

You begin to smile, and you put your purse back on the floor.

You go sit next to her and your nutty personality mixes with her sweetness.

And the party looks like it might be salvaged.

After the party is over, and you look back on it the next day,

it really was perfection.

If you’d like to make a little party in your mouth, click over to Carla’s blog called Chocolate Moosey to get the recipe.

When I was about 8 or so, I remember hunkering down in our basement with Sister and Grams while a tornado went overhead.

Tornadoes + cookies and chips with Grams = fun

When I was about 10, Sister and I were in my room when an earth quake happened.

Earthquake + Sister + Barbies = fun

In 1983, we were moving into a house in Houston right in the middle of a hurricane.

Hurricane + no electricity or water + watching trees blow down the street with Dad = fun

In 2003, our entire family went to the Outer Banks to celebrate my Aunt’s 50th birthday.¬† We were mandatory¬† evacuated due to Hurricane Isabella.

Hurricane + vacation + family = fun

Last night a thunderstorm passed through in the early hours of the morning.

Sleep + insanely loud thunder right outside your opened window + an adrenaline rush like you have never had + sitting bolt upright awakened out of a sound sleep + heart pounding for at least 3 minutes after + no sleep for the rest of the night = no fun

Hello Sunday.

I wish I were waking up to sunshine, but alas…for the 7th?¬† 20th? day in a row, I have awakened to rain, or almost rain.

Sleep…it evades.

Sunshine…it evades.



CC, who is not in a happy place today

  3. Laughing with the boy while watching Glenn Beck.

Your turn.
