15 Mar


Well it’s St. Patrick’s Day Weekend, and it’s Friday. TGIF! And I’m already having a glass of wine.

nothing a glass of wine and flat iron

I’ve flat-ironed my hair, then added just a bit of curl to the bottom, I’m wearing a green felt hat for St. Patty’s Day, with a Dr. Suess Green Eggs and Ham t-shirt. Yes, I’m Irish (and Scottish) and we will use any all opportunities to celebrate around here.

is it wine o clock

I’m a bit excited. We don’t go out often, but we’re going to a friend’s birthday celebration, so I’ve taken my light-weight pain pill already (had it with lunch), and from here on out it won’t be anything except the wine, which will numb the pain but I won’t get too drunk (I hate hangovers and at my age they’re worse, or maybe they just feel worse).

glass of wine and proper use of vocabular

So the jeans are still hanging from the door sills and they’re not dry yet, Dammit! I have a pair that I can wear if push comes to shove, but I’m hoping they’ll be dry before it’s time to go. Keeping fingers and toes crossed we’re able to fix the dryer tomorrow, and saying prayers.

Think you can

I’ve been thinking about something all day, and as I began to do my hair (and it takes a long time to straighten this mass of unruly curls I have) and sipped on my wine, I tried to sort through the thoughts.

write it quote by james joyce

There are times when you just have to work, live, write, laugh, and love through the pain. You can’t let life live you–you have to live life. I love Mr. Rockstar with all of my heart, mind, body, and soul. And I’m the happiest I’ve ever been (aside from this almost chronic pain). I have this beautiful 8 mth old grandson. And I’m writing every day. I finished the scrapbook for my daughter for her Mother’s day present, and I’m about to start working on two more: one for my mom and Mr. Rockstar’s mom. So it’s been a good week. A week of revelation, venting, inspiration, and soul searching.

life is full of testing times

As I look back on the week I’ve found that perhaps it’s time to take a moment each week and be thankful for things. So today I’m going to list 5 things I’m thankful for and next week I’ll list 5 other ones.

  1. Mr. Rockstar
  2. My children
  3. My grandchil
  4. My parents
  5. My friends

Next week I’ll list more specific things. Maybe I’ll start doing Thankful Thursday’s. That sounds good.

Sláinte! To all!!!!

a good life how blessed you are
