Random Thoughts Monday

  • I thought my cat was staring at nothing. As I was typing that, I realized nothing was a millipede that had scurried its away out of the floor boards and into the hallway. I squished it with my slipper and let Cosmo enjoy the remains.
  • It's been four weeks and I am still doing both Pilates and yoga. It's amazing how much my strength has improved in that little time.
  • When my son and I leave the house at 6:10 a.m., the sky is lighter. It's still dark, but you can see the sky lighting the horizon. By the time 7 a.m. rolls around, it's light outside, as in you can see the sun. Taking my guy to swimming lessons this evening saw daylight at 5:30. Hello spring. I can almost see you.
  • Of course saying that, we are expecting a snowstorm Tuesday night. I am thankful the front from Texas decided to come overnight Tuesday rather than what was originally forecasted – Tuesday and Wednesday, deadline days.
  • My nasty cough has made a return. Why is it always worse at night?
  • My stepdaughter was diagnosed with this weird thing called geographic tongue. It's the most bizarre thing. If you Google it, it will show you a tongue that looks like layers have been peeled away. It doesn't hurt for the most part, but she is supposed to avoid both citrus and hot stuff, which she doesn't. My son has the same weird tongue thing, but his comes out when he is sick. If you want to know if something is amiss with my little guy, you ask him to stick out his tongue. We once went the to the walk-in clinic and the doctor made the intern come look at my guy's tongue because, as he said, you don't see it too often. We like to be different.

That's so weird about the tongues, must be your husband's genes :)

My fingers are crossed for spring. The only bad part about spring is that all my children's practices will move outside and it will still be way colder for just sitting and watching. My car will become my 2nd home!

I was away for two weeks and I was shocked at how much more daylight there is now than before I left!

Wow, I've never heard about that tongue issue; how crazy! Are you up in northern Texas? I used to live in Dallas and have a friend up in Amarillo that was literally buried in that last storm!
