Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn!

I hope that everyone has a great Thanksgiving!

T – I got you.  Look for China details after Thanksgiving.

Y’all – my kid has strep throat AND scarlet fever.  I asked the doctor “Little House on the Prairie, wipe out the whole town scarlet fever????”  Yes ma’am.  Two days of Tylenol, Motrin, one trip to the doctor and some antibiotics later and she is on the mend. (Hence the title of this post.  Get it?) 🙂

Gobble gobble baby – enjoy this time with your loved ones!


Whatever, whatever.

No rhyme or reason to this post.  I’ve got random stuff floating around in my head, and I don’t think I’ll be able to write anything that makes sense until I get this out. 

  • I’ve had two songs running through my head all week – “Jesus Be a Fence” by Hammond and P.etey Pablo’s “Raise Up.”  I’ve got issues.
  • I usually go to the gym three or four days a week, Tuesdays through Thursdays and Saturday mornings.  I had a revelation the other day.  I’m always working on my relationship with God and desiring to be closer to Him and to have Him order my steps.  But.  I spend more time working on my physical fitness than I do my spiritual fitness.  Next step?  Wednesday night Bible study.
  • I’m thinking of returning to my semi-vegetarian past.  We were raised eating fish and dairy but no red meat or poultry.  I now eat poultry, but really could do without it.  I’ve been researching complete proteins – I don’t want to eat only red beans and rice every day – and want to make sure that if I do make the leap I’m still getting everything I need nutritionally.
  • i am tired of hearing about how bad the economy is.  We know.  Is there anything else going on in the world?
  • My crazy ass boss must be off the pills I just know she should be taking.  Her latest?  Told me that she’d been reviewing my time and noticed I was taking hour long lunches.  I now need to take 30 minutes lunches.  Ummm, I don’t clock in – how the hell are you reviewing my time?  I’ve worked here for almost two years – you just decided that I don’t get an hour for lunch?  What do you mean I only get a 30 minute lunch because salaried employees don’t get two 15 minute breaks(I’d been combining for my luxurious hour long lunch)?  Is this broad laying up at night thinking of things she can do or say to me that are absolutely damn ridiculous and wrong? This chick is NUTS!!!  I am, however, thankful to be employed.  So I just gave her the dead face and moved along.
  • I LOVED this season of House.wives of Atlanta!  This series has become my new guilty pleasure.  Sheer madness from one episode to the next – I can’t wait for the wrap up show next week.  Between NeNe keeping it real, no singing Kim, and DeShawn who seems to be the sweetest person ever, I could not get enough.  Just me?
  • Alright, maybe next time I’ll be back with something deep and thought provoking.  This is all I’ve got for now!

I’m Baaaaaaack!

Hey y’all – I’m back!  China was awesome!  I won’t say it was the trip of a lifetime, because I hope to have many, many more trips before it is all over and done with, but it was pretty cool.  I climbed the Great Wall, cruised the Grand Canal, ate deep fried scorpion and toured so many Buddhist temples I’m thinking about converting.  Okay, kidding on the last one.

I’m still in CA – my flight back to MS leaves in a few more hours – I can’t wait to get home to Smoochy and Lovegirl!  I’ll check back in with a full debrief and hopefully pictures early next week.  I hope that all has been well with you all over the last few days. 

Oh – one more thing.  President Barack Obama!!!!!  Y’all, I was in a pearl store in Beijing when someone shouted out “he won, he won, Obama won!”  I stood in the middle of that store and cried like a newborn baby!  I finally have one of those life moments – you know the kind your parents talk about – the one where you’ll always remember where you were when . . .

YES WE CAN!  YES WE DID!  I am so proud!!!!!!!
