Friday night

here we are at the weeks end.

Cleaning, laundry, and cooking are done for the day.

It's a red wine type of night.

I've got five girls in the hot tub.

Two boys playing video games.

and here I sit.

Almost all the snow we got last Friday plus the 70 inches we officially received over the winter are almost gone.
Did you get that? 70 freaking inches of snow. Incredible right? and most of it has melted in the space of seven days. Another incredible feat I wouldn't have thought possible, but whatever I'll take it. Spring is really here. The mud has arrived.

I've got nothing. Just rambling thoughts.

Apparently my family has a propensity for cancer; lung cancer specifically. Yes, both my maternal Grandparents died from it and currently three of their eight children have succumbed. Two of them within the last 18 months. My Mother's brother was diagnosed this week with stage 4 cancer of the lung, liver, lymph and bone. He was in OK earlier in March for my Aunts funeral (she also died of lung cancer) and he seemed fine. Even walked the back 40 with Gerry, never even seeming to be out of breath or out of shape.

It scares the shit out of me.

Not so much for me, but for my Mother. Yes she quit smoking over 10 years ago, but the stress of loosing her siblings is extremely hard on her. So damn it Mother take care of yourself. I can't imagine a world with you not in it.

I'm thinking about my sad son. He and the girlfriend have broke up. No idea why, but he is sad and of course never gonna love again. Not much I can do there. Except worry about him.


I'm thinking about entering in a few 5K's this spring/summer. Thinking about it yet, but feeling much stronger than I did when Krissy and I did it year before last and I'm wanting/needing something to accomplish.

I'm thinking about whacking off all my hair again.

Baseball starts next week for Caden. The PT seems to be helping him. Less pain, less advil, less ice packs and heating pads. All good shit. Guess we'll see how it goes.

Tomorrow I'm going to brush some super hairy horses.


My musical taste has actually changed from the 70's and 80's to the eclectic. The music of P!nk, Bruno Mars, Maron 5, Puddle of Mud, Five finger death punch, Breaking Benjamin, Goo Goo Dolls, Three Day's Grace, Shinedown, and the like are what run through my head. Who knew I'd ever get past the oldies eh?

My gal Krissy will be back in the land of milk and honey come the end of May. I can't wait to see her.


my wine and I are going to bed. It's time.

sweet dreams.

OMG Kellie, that wine was really making you chatty, hee, hee. Thanks for all the news.

Sorry to hear about Colton and his girl, and for your hair, I liked the shoulder length you had several years ago.

Can't wait for Krissy to come back too. I'm job hunting for library jobs for her.

Heredity is so scary...
Your music "tastes" changing makes me smile. I've been listening to a lot of Green Day, P!NK (love her!!), Foo Fighters, along with modern country lately. I keep telling myself I'm trying to make sure Kase get's a taste of different things.

Drink some wine for me please. I'm soooo stressed! :). Sad about Colton but yeah, he'll get over it just like we all do! Glad Caden is doing better! Hey, it's snowing here today :)
