Saturday Ramblings

I heard from my son and he sounds like he is doing well. He was so addicted to the video games, that I was worried that he would have trouble with the physical training. But he makes it through the daily running, and has passed the other physical things that he has to do, so I guess I was just being overly mom-like.

I really have a quite a few things including homework that I should be working on right now, but I have detoured here instead, because I feel like I have been away too long. It's funny how when I am in the car or doing something else, I will say to myself, I need to write about that. However, finding the time is the problem.

Sometimes it seems that plans that happen at the last minute are the most fun. I was invited last Sunday to a gathering that was happening only 2 hours later, and had a great time. Maybe the fact that I do things on the spur of the moment makes me open to that. Because I have friends that plan things well in advance, and even if they don't have plans, they wouldn't have accepted. I have to admit I love my friends that plan things, so I don't have to.

Although, a few years ago I did want to scream at one of my "friends that plans ahead" when I was getting a call at work in December about a trip we were going to take in July. Maybe if there was a deadline for the payment or something, I wouldn't have been so frustrated, but it wasn't. She was just off, and had questions. I on the other hand was at work and it was the busiest time of the year for us. I have to admit though, that was a great trip, her early reservations allowed for us to have a great condo very close to the beach.

I know this is rather short, and probably boring, but I have to run some errands. I will be back, because I a number of things that I want to blog about.

The world really does take all types. I tend to be one of those people that plan things out and often times can't stand last minute things popping up. People have sometimes asked why I didn't want to do whatever it is they did and as hard as it is for some people to understand sometimes I actually have plans to do absolutely nothing. Their last minute excursions conflict with my plans so I sometimes turn them down. It's weird to some people but it makes perfect sense to me. :o)

So did you wear a skimpy little swimsuit at the beach?

No, I didn't find this boring. You have more on the way? Good, I'll look out.

I'm like that, too, thinking about blog topics, then forgetting a ton of'em before I make it to the keyboard.

I'm working on it, though. Sometimes I take notes for myself and store'em in my phone, for later.

@ Freaky, I think we all need those absolutely nothing days every now and then. Ha-ha! I should let you wonder about the string err skimpy little swimsuit.
~~~bursting bubble~~~ No, it was a trip with our kids.

@ Madbull, thanks for the encouragement!

@ West, oh I never thought about using my phone that way. It has a voice recorder & a note section. I use the note section to remember where I park in big garages. ;-)
Thanx for the idea!

Too funny!

I find that since I've gotten into the whole school thing I do more spur of the moment stuff. I'm by nature a "plan it out in advance" person but we adapt as the situation changes.
