Random Thoughts

I'm linking up with Stacy for Tuesday's Random Thoughts.

I ordered some ear plugs last night.  Doesn't sound like a big deal, but the snoring in my household is loud.  So, I did some research.  I looked at ten reviews of ear plugs.  They each had a Noise Reduction Rating as well as ratings for comfort, durability, ease of use, and a few other things.  I had no idea that you could buy ear plugs for over $100!  But,  I'm glad I did my research because the ones that I actually purchased were only about $5.  I'll let you know if they work!

I'm watching Mitch Albom's For One More Day as I type this.  I have avoided this movie because I have always wished for one more day with my dad, and I didn't know if I could handle the emotions I was sure would follow viewing it.  So far, I think I'm going to be okay.  But what I wouldn't give for one more day with my dad!  Anything!  Everything!  It's been 9 and a half years since he passed suddenly and without warning.  Here one minute; not the next.  I miss him so deeply.  I don't believe I have ever completely dealt with my sorrow.  I think I am still in the denial stage, even after all these years.  Because if I accept it, it's going to hurt too badly.  This picture was taken a year and a half before he passed.  (See?  I can't say the word died.)  He was a handsome man, IMHO!

I'm counting down the days until basketball season, except I don't know what the Rockets are going to do since we lost Parsons and didn't gain another "superstar."  We have Ariza, which is good, and our guys are in training this summer, hopefully getting better, but I sure we we'd have gotten Bosh!  This is totally random and probably means nothing to you, but isn't that what this is all about!
I've got my legs propped up in the recliner, and this sweet angel is sleeping on them, as usual.  I don't know what I'd do without her!
Happy Random Thoughts to You!


  1. I love it when the cat comes to snuggle with me. Of course it has to be on her terms.
    I have slept with ear plugs for years. I found some at Murdocks--a ranch/home supply store that work pretty well. I had been using ones I found in the sporting good area for gun shooting. The new ones I found work much better.

  2. Let me know how those ear plugs work - the hubby has a tendency to snore extremely loud which makes it difficult for me to sleep. :)

    Losing someone so close - especially a parent - so suddenly without warning. It's like you're lacking that sense of 'closure' with it coming out of the blue like that. I'm sorry for your loss.

    Kitty!!!! Cute little fluffy - I hope our cats get used to the dogs so they will start to cuddle with us 2-leggers again. ;)
