Random Tuesday and Coffee Chat


Linking up with Stacy today, and this is going to be really random!

Have you ever been sitting on your couch or in your recliner and felt like you forgot to put your seat belt on?  I guess it's the result of riding in the car too long!  When I asked my son this question, he worried a little about my sanity. (teasing me, of course!)

And today, I was talking about a dream I had where we were driving a black truck through high water and flooding.  We came to the place where we had to stop, and we parked the truck.  When we went back for the truck, all the other cars were gone, and our truck was buried under the ground.  They wouldn't let us get the truck out because it would disturb the grave of someone who was buried nearby.  What the heck does that even mean? When I told my husband, he also teased that it sounded like my elevator didn't go to the top floor!  Crazy dream!


Yesterday, my twins turned 21.  It doesn't seem that they should be that old.  I took them for their first "legal" drink.  Haha!  And I got them "grown-up" cakes instead of regular birthday cakes.

It honestly makes me a little sad.  It's sad for them because being an adult is often not fun.  You just have so many responsibilities.  And for me, it's sad realizing that I am getting old.  No, I'm not really old yet, but I haven't fulfilled some of my life's goals and dreams, and I am running out of time.  And some of them are too difficult to do when you're my age.  Heavy sigh.  Oh, well.  It is what it is.

And now, Coffee Chat at Ink Interrupted.
Today Leslie asks, "What are three things on your summer to-do list?"

1.  Sleep.  Glorious sleep!  During the school year, I don't get near enough sleep during the school week.  It's nice to be able to sleep in.  It's nice to feel like there are no pressing obligations (even though there will be some.)  It's nice not to have to wake up to a screeching alarm clock.  And I plan to savor every moment of sleep that I can.

2,  This is the summer of organizing, and I have already started.  My husband never throws anything away.  He doesn't even open half the mail.  So, I am going through every piece of paper in the kitchen, the file cabinet, and the closet.  I'm shredding and tossing as much as I can.  I'm going for a more stream-lined system of organization and decor.  I plan to clean out all the closets and purge everything I can.

3.  Vacation.  I'm not sure when or where, but I need at least a weekend getaway.  I'd like to go somewhere I've never been before.  My husband has a business trip to Seattle toward the end of summer, and I may tag along for a couple of days, but it's the week right before school starts again, so I don't know.  I'd really like to sit on a white, sandy, beach somewhere under an umbrella with cold pina coladas and a good book.
