Random Thoughts Wednesday

Sometimes I like to put my random thoughts out into the universe and watch them circle the bowl. :)  So, here goes...

1.  I decided I needed new stronger bifocals because I'm embracing my inner old lady and she's legally blind.  I ordered frames in "eggplant" because that's the color glasses an "artist" would wear.

2.  Speaking of eyes, I'm having this crazy eye thing.  When I look in the mirror, my eyes look normal.  But they feel like they look like this:

It's starting to freak me out.

3.  I have a teenager in the house.  It's always been my theory that God designed it so that expectant mothers can't sleep in the last trimester because He knew they wouldn't be able to have another decent night's sleep in....well...ever, so they might as well get used to it.  I think a similar sort of thing happens with teenagers.  The last two years are stressful and sometimes bordering on miserable so that we aren't hanging onto their legs and wailing when it's time for them to move out.

4.  I need to keep paper and a pen in the car so that I can take note of my brilliant but ever more fleeting thoughts..  I had a list of things I wanted to put in this blog post.  I wrote it on a slip of paper in the car with a pen that didn't really work.  Now I can't find the list, and I can't remember what was on it.  I'm sure the fourth item was going to be hilariously funny and/or deeply moving.  You'll just have to trust me.

I'm working on some new art to share soon.  In the meantime, may the Lord bless you today with either 20/20 vision or stylish eyewear and either obedient children or short term memory loss.

  4. Ha! Ha! Ha! You so funny sister. Love it. Keep'em coming.

  5. this post Lori! Can relate to all of it ;)

  6. Trust me, it doesn't get any better. And I truly believe God makes teenagers obnoxious so we can let them leave, otherwise it just hurts too much. Then you get to be best friends and all is well. Then you get grandkids and get to watch them torture their parents...trouble is, it isn't as much fun to watch as you thought it was going to be.

    As for the eyesight? I'd love to tell you don't need your eyes, but I'm pretty sure it would be a lie.

    What else were you talking about?

  7. To funny! I like the idea of eggplant colored frames... you still don't sleep when the are in their early twenties and the fleeting memory love my iPad always have something to make a note with if I can remember by the time I turn it on LOL

  8. Oh yes ... those bifocals are waiting for me, too ... Take care!

  9. I love your parting quotation! So true.....
