* i procrastinate even in blogging …

Posted on August 11th, 2010 by melinda in Another day in the life of me.

Hi.  It’s been a while.  I keep telling myself that tomorrow I will blog.  Tomorrow has turned in to nearly 3 weeks, and I’m not sure tomorrow is here tonight, but here I am writing on the blog. 

I’m not really sure where I left off, thus, I’m not really sure where to start.  Jeff is doing well, thank you all for the prayers.  Jack is on the mend but it’s going to be a long haul back to him being strong and able to run. 

I feel some odd need to apologize for not blogging the last little bit.  I’m not sure why.  It’s weird.  The thing that is most unusual is, I really don’t have much to say.  Have you met me?  That never happens.  Ever. 

I haven’t taken any pictures in over a month.  My camera isn’t even charged.  It’s laying here beside me on the table looking a bit lonely. 

We’re having bible school this week.  I’m teaching the teens.  I’m not sure if they are enjoying it or not.  I’m actually following the book that I didn’t lose this year.  Of course, Bobbi only gave it to me a week ahead of time this year.  Bobbi’s pretty smart. 

Richard has been really really sick for a week.  He never gets sick.  I think he may be feeling a little better now.  He’s at least been out of the bed for the past 2 days.  I am pretty certain I don’t want like him not feeling well, it makes my world off kilter.

I was a complete redneck Saturday night and went cruising in my home town.  I had a great time.  I felt young and free spirited.  I laughed really hard at myself.  I should’ve laughed really hard at myself, I’m a dork and that is perfectly ok with me.

Both of my daughters and their resepctive boyfriends went cruising too.  They thought it was the greatest thing ever.  It makes my heart feel good to know that they may gain some understanding of truly loving where you come from, because the people who live here are such genuinely good people. 

Today, I had lunch with Amy and Tonya.  I have never blogged about either of them.  I’m not sure how to explain them to you.  If you have known me the majority of my life, there doesn’t need to be an explanation.  If not, the simplest thing to say is … they are just an extension of who I am, they are part of who I am.  I’m not sure friends or best friends or any other title explains it.  They are just them, and they have a way of popping up (in person) at the most appropriate times in my life.  It was a really good day.  Amy and I have a girls night date Saturday, Tonya is ditching us for her actual non redneck, have a real life and go to the big city friends.  I bet she thinks about us all night Saturday night!  We’ll miss her.  She’ll miss us.  Remind me to tell you sometime about the night I cried all night on a date cause they were out having fun without me.  Yes, it is really that sad. 

Four years ago today was the last time I saw my mom alive.  I miss her terribly.  I’ve really missed her the last few weeks.  I need her guidance in this whole being a mom of adult children thing.  Although, I’m sure she has had a laugh or 12 at my expense over the last couple of weeks.  I think she would say my raising is being paid for.  She would be correct.

My brother changed jobs.  I miss him, Brad and Emma Joy.  I think I need to take a road trip soon. 

My camper misses me, I’m sure of it.

I have read the entire Girl with a Dragon tattoo trilogy in the past 3 weeks.  I’ll tell you all about it later.  Actually, I probably won’t.  I enjoyed the books a lot, but not sure I would really recommend them. 

And that about covers it on this end of the blog.  I do apologize for just poofing the last few weeks.  I have missed you very much. 

Take a chance and come back tomorrow … maybe I will have remembered how to actually compose a blog post by then.

just to spite my mama … I did not spell or grammar check this post.  I’m such a rebel.

    Your “rebelism” is what makes you you! Along with you kind heart, your keep it real attitude, and your contagious laugh! Nana Joy is shaking her head and smilin.

    I think of your mother too at this time of year. She would be proud of the fact I am stepping up and going to drive a bus full time this year. I have missed your blogs but sometimes we just stop doing things. I know I used to read all the time and I have not really picked up a book in a couple of years. I just can’t seem to feel the urge to want to do that. Like you, I have had a lot of stuff going on and reading a book was not one of them. Sometimes we just need a break too. Don’t worry about us, we will still be here.

    Enjoy your cruising!

    Love ya!
