Rambling, Rambling, Rambling



So much is on my mind that today I am just going to ramble. Hang on...

Next Tuesday I am going to have oral surgery. My surgeon looks like a seventeen year old. Am I getting old or what? But he prescribed both valium and vicodin for me so all is forgiven...

I spoke today for a group called MOMS club in Parker. Lovely gals and very kind.

I was scheduled to speak for a Mothers Day Tea next week, but it was cancelled due to a death. Very disappointing. Yes, I had that moment. Couldn't we have tea and a funeral? I'm sorry. Selfish Robbie appears at least one hundred times a day. I roll my eyes at her and she scurries away.

Scooby is a bit of a "contraversial figure" in our condo complex. The dog lovers pet him and tell him "I heard about you, killer. Good dog!" While the bunny lovers look at him and then me and say, "Is this THAT dog?" I nod my head and they give me a polite yet oh so hurt look and keep walking. We did not tell everyone about the "incident" but word got around. :0)

Noah is fine again and can't wait for soccer this Saturday. It rained and snowed again today, but it is suppose to be beautiful this weekend. Whatever. I believe nothing.

I feel really badly for those kids in Texas, the ones from the cult.

In 13 days I will be on a "mini-vacation" at a writer's conference in Estes Park. I can't wait to just BE with all those writers!

Last night my husband and son got up from where they were sitting in our living room and did an impromptu dance. I sat, watched and laughed. My life includes spontaneous dancing - I love this!

Did I mention I am having oral surgery? But to clarify, I am not on the official drugs yet, except at night if I am in pain.

Ouch. Well, then...doctor's orders...

Tomorrow night we are having 3 couples over to our house to eat. They all go to our church. Does every woman have these thoughts before having company: We need new plates, no, new dishes and placemats. No, we need new chairs and a new table. Could we rent out a house somewhere so I don't have to vacuum? How bout we meet at a restaurant? My teeth hurt so let's cancel...

An example of my determined mindset: (Okay, my obsession) My brother works with the guy whose family was on Extreme Makeover Home Edition last Sunday. We taped it. I didn't know if Perry, my brother or his family would be on TV, so after we watched it, I told John that they might have been in the bus group scene. So, I took at least 30 to 45 minutes and watched each frame, pausing and scouring the crowd for family. John told me I was a little...cwwaazy. But I was determined. (okay, okay obsessed.) I found Perry though and felt like I had just won the National
Where's Waldo
Contest. I emailed Kasey, my sis-in-law and Perry's wife) and told her I'd found Perry. She emailed back. He wasn't there. What does she know?

Once again, a boy who probably only has a drivers permit will take death defying surgery tools and pull out two of my teeth on Tuesday. I will be armed with God given drugs...

May our Lord bless your day and give you spontaneous dancing, keep your kids safe and out of a cult (or out of a winter blizzard soccer game) and may He give you drugs when you encounter adolescent dentists who are going to remove molars.

Robbie, great post, rambling is good sometimes. The pic looks great also but whats that pile of white stuff in the back? If you get through the surgery ok and have any leftovers you can send them my way. I'll be praying for surgery, Be Blessed.

You know... you ask me to post... I do... and where are you? Rambling about some kid who's going to yank out your teeth. Go have some more vicodin. You'll feel better. Or at least be unconscious. That's what it always does to me. :)

Oh Robbie, I have to come back more often to read your posts. You make me laugh so much!

The dentist, I will pray.

The dinner, yes all women go through this. I totally get wanting to rent out something else. Giggle...

How wonderful is it to have spontaneous dancing. :)

Maybe Doogie will have to stay after school that day and he won't be able to pull your teeth.

hubby has to have some oral surgery, too. He's very cute on drugs.
You probably are, too. Well, you're already cute. So's he now that I think about it.
It sure is windy right now. I am ready to say that I am done with the snow. Officially.
We plan to be at J for church tomorrow night, but it will be at 7:00.
See, I can ramble, too.

So great to meet you at the Words for the Journey! Pop over to my blog for an award for being so supportive of me during my early attempts at blogging! Thanks.

Very interesting. I wonder what a head doctor would say about all you ramblers. I, of course, only ramble in person-you may ask my sis about that one. But that doesn't make you better than me. :)

Love that picture. Looks like you got way more snow than we did. Aren't you just over all that now?

I like the rant post. I may have to post one. Just to clear the air you know.

I'm still waiting for you to bring that delightful bunny killer over here.

I'll be praying for your surgery on Tuesday - in fact we all will since we are meeting for prayer.

You are such a hoot. No wonder we're friends.

Hope everything goes well for you today. Miss you!
