Random Tuesday and Coffee Chat

Today is really random! Random Tuesday Rebel is hosted by Stacy Uncorked.

I would be happy if I never saw the names Kylie Jenner, Bruce Jenner, or Kim Kardashian ever again.  Every time Yahoo sends me a daily update on "news," at least one of those names appears.

Did you see the flak Michael Buble got for that picture his wife took with a girl whose butt was hanging out of her shorts?  Why is he getting hassled about this?  It was funny!  And if you don't want anyone to look, don't let your butt hang out of your clothes.

I've been searching for some new books to read, and two of the descriptions I've read this past week used this phrase:  "In a tiny, seaside town..."  Just something else I noticed that has no real consequence in the grand scheme of life.

Lately, I have been dreaming about walking... a lot.  Long distances, going places I would normally drive, on roads that cars normally drive on, around obstacles, sometimes with other people, sometimes alone, never reaching my destination.  I am having these walking dreams all the time, and when I do, I feel like I am actually walking those long distances.  But I never get to my destination before I wake up.  Too bad the walking I'm doing in my dreams doesn't burn real calories or I'd be skinny!

Tuesday Coffee Chat, hosted at Time Out for Mom, asks us to tell about a recent fear we've faced.  About a month ago, I took my mom to the hospital for a colonoscopy.  This wasn't her first rodeo, as we say in Texas.  She has been through the wringer a number of times:  survived removal of part of her lung from cancer, mastectomy due to breast cancer, knee replacement, shoulder surgery, back surgery, you name it, she's probably had it.  She had some pre-cancerous polyps removed a few years ago, but this time, I'm happy to say, there was nothing abnormal!  My fear is losing her.  I've lost my dad, and it's the hardest thing I've ever gone through, and I don't know what I will do when the time finally comes.  I don't like to think about it, but sometimes, we must.  I'm just thankful that it's not right now.


  1. Losing a parent is definitely scary and a reason to be fearful. I lost my dad to cancer 10 years ago and my mom almost passed away just this year from cancer. But she survived!
    I'm glad your mom is doing well.
    I'm not sure who Michael Buble is and haven't heard anything about it. Will have to check it out now to see what the uproar is.

  2. exact same fear that has been on my mind lately. with 2 parents having health crisis so far this year. It's not pleasant to think that my time with a parent maybe coming to and end. I mean, we know that it will be that way eventually -- but I don't think you can ever be prepared for it. Thankfully your mom is okay though!

    And yeah I saw that pic of Buble's. People think he was shaming her.. but honestly, as you say: don't have your butt cheeks hanging out if you don't want them noticed. I think he was more appreciative of the sight - than that he was shaming the girl. ha


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
