Sunday Stealing: The Dirty Dozen

1. This weather is really . . . like a three-year old boy throwing a temper tantrum because he lost his favorite toy truck.

2. You think you've seen it all, you should see me . . . walking through an April forest, my eyes alight with Spring and the beauty of the trillium and may apples.

3. I'm sure you would still love me even if . . . you found out that I am as scarred and battered as a beat-up ol' 1963 pick-up truck.

4. I think I have finally realized . . . that joy is not found in shopping bags.

5. Since the last time we linked up . . . I have worked hard at my physical therapy, attended a government meeting, seen a chiropractor, and lost two pounds.

6. I get super embarrassed . . . when all eyes are on me as I stand in front of a group of stuffed shirts who are only thinking of themselves.

7. I really thought by now . . . the world's people would have figured out how to be humane and more like a Star Trek episode than a cruel and vicious dump for humanity.

8. If I thought no one would read it, I would write about . . . the secret thumpings of my heart and the pulsing of my blood rushing in my ears when my passion calls my name.

9. I knew I was in the wrong place . . . when the guy offered me drugs and the world turned sideways and upside down, and the buildings began to walk on water.

10. I am so not above . . . cleaning the toilets at my house.

11. Let's pretend . . . that Jeremiah was a bullfrog, and happy creatures are dancing on the lawn.

12. Just you wait . . . until I get my mojo back. Then you'll all be wondering just who you've been reading all of this time.

  2. I'm still working on #4. What's in the shopping bag might not give me JOY, but it does lessen the pain just a little. Still, though, I'm working on contentment and simplifying.

    Hooray for those 2 pounds!

    A couple of those answers have me wondering if you might be on pain meds....or just missing the 60s and 70s? LOL

  3. I loved your temper tantrum answer.
    As moms, we have done way worse things than scrubbing toilets...

  4. Wow! You are getting your mojo back! To be sure, it may come in fits and starts, but it's coming back! Yay! Prescribed meds have some terrifying side effects, like sending a person to the hospital for surgery or gumming up whole systems. Happily, it wears off but it's all the waiting for it to do it! Stay strong!
