Short Attention Span Theatre

Happy Hump Day, Bleeps ... or actually ... since Friday is a holiday, I guess we could have considered the half way mark between yesterday and today "Hump-Eight-Hour-Period" ... whatevs ... you feel me? Right? Or smell what I'm steppin' in? Right?

I am very much ...'Twinkle, twinkle, little ... oooh - look at the pretty butterfl ... oooh - that plane is really loud... oooh - there's Sally waving from her back deck' ...

I'm having trouble staying focused. Could be Spring fever ... could be the fact that Narci is away this week ... could be that Hubs is actually making MORE and spending LESS money than when he had to go to work everyday ... I'm near on heady, I am.

In honor of my inability to commit to a topic, I give you:

Short Attention Span Theatre ... Dani-style

*I went to my first sleep over in ten years this past Saturday. It was at Polly's house. She is Jax's older sister and we have become very close over the years. We had a "Margarita Night". We talked about a whole lotta stuff I have been afraid to verbalize. That was good... and it was fun. I have known Polly since I was eleven ... that's 26 years, for anyone inclined to do the math ... YES, 26 + 11 = 29!!! 

DOES TOO!!!

*Narci is away ... which means I am on V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N ... 'everybody hold yer drinks in the air .... chug - chug - chug - chug .... freshmen - freshmen - do sumpin' crazy - do sumpin' crazy' .... man ... I love college ... I love drinkin' ... I love ... uh .. er ... sorry.

*Hubs has an appointment made 'fer de schnipp-schnipp'. His biggest concern is that in his nervousness, he'll accidentally make the urologist laugh by yelping at him not to snip the wrong wire or his junk'll blow up... 
ba dump bump (Yes - my hubby is a funny funny guy ...)

* My girls are excited about the bunny coming this weekend. I am excited because Hubs is actually going to take a day and a half off and we are going to paint our bedroom and the porch ... and possibly the kitchen cabinets as I am unhappy with them and need to finish that job already ... yes - I know that is too much to do in a weekend ... even a three day weekend, but the fact that I am so pumped to do it says something about the positivity in my mood.We'll also need to find some time for a nice family dinner and to work a little religion in there. My Mom is at her wit's end with our heathenism. 

* My baby sister and her boyfriend have moved to the UK. They landed safely yesterday afternoon. She never even said goodbye (to me - she saw Mom ... 'cause Mom helped her pack ... and clean her place). Not an email ... a phone call - nothing. Didn't come out to see her nieces because she was too busy preparing. Her stuff made it to my place, though. I am now storing Mom's stuff (not to mention MOM), baby Sissy's stuff and my Middle Sissy's crap, too. She's in Calgary. If we actually DID ever manage to sell this colossus of a homestead ... I'm thinking the yard sale could be quite lucrative for me ... I would chalk it up to accumulated storage fees. {I will be making a post regarding my relationship(s) - or lack thereof with my siblings another day ... but not today}

*I don't have anything to do here at work. I wish the SALES force would bring in some flippin' business so Narci would feel comfortable going away more often. I do not like having nothing to do. I am going to be forced to try and dig up some business myself.

* Today is Dr. Seuss' birthday ... Stretch is having green eggs and ham at her school cafeteria today. Happy Birthday Dr.Seuss!! In honor of his special day, below are some sage quotes from a man beyond his time.


“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”

“Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.”

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”

“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.”

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.”

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. You are the guy who'll decide where to go.”

“And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed!”

- Dr. Theodor Seuss Geisel
Have a happy Wednesday Bleeps!!

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
Wow...that so describes my life for the past couple of years.I've had to come up with a whole new way of 'putting myself to sleep'.
Love ALL these quotes Dani dear, thank you!

This quote has been my mantra for the past several years. Love me some Dr.Seuss.
You had me laughing out loud this morning with your short attention span. I am feeling the same way- but for different reasons.
Thanks for always putting a smile on my face!
Been missing you!

"Oh, the places you'll go!"

That's my favorite and it keeps me going when I want to stop.

I wish I had known that Narci was away as I was in your area yesterday and would have stopped in to the henge for a visit. Maybe next time!

Glad things are looking up. It's amazing what spring will bring!

“Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.”

Sound advice right there.

Now, get your ass back into bloggy mode girl, we've been sorely lacking some Dani around the interwebs!

I love this. It reminds me to live the life I want to live---on my own terms---since it's the only chance I've got to do so :)
