Random Thoughts for a Wednesday

So, I had a very bad weekend and I am just now coming out of it. Why the bad weekend? Well, I am missing my daughter very much. Even though we talk on the phone 3 times (at least) per day it is just not the same as being with her. My husband was out of town (again) and my karate organization was holding the annual karate tournament in Troutdale, OR and all of my friends were there and I was not. It is moments like this hat make me really hate being in Florida. Usually I just don't like it but this weekend I was hating it. And becuase I was by myself, just me and the dogs, I had a lot of time to think about it.

Because of the storms in the west my husband had to get out of town early or risk not being able to get out of town until later this week so he got home late Saturday night (midnight). That made me feel better. And, I am planning to go to Ohio t visit my daughter the first weekend of April so now I have something to look forward to. YEAH!!


The boys sang last night. And while I can't tell you who should be voted off next (I was not impressed with very many of them), I can tell you who shouldn't. That would be David Archuleta. WOW! He is only 17 and has the voice and majurity of someone much older. And he appears to be very humble.

He sang Imagine by John Lenon and I had tears in my eyes he was so good. I think Paula had tears and I know his mother was crying. If you have not heard him you must watch it the next time the boys sing.


My friend Hallie over at is having a limerick contest. Here are the rules inHallies own words.

"The limerick must be about dogs....and not just any dogs. Oh, you SOOOOO know where I'm going with this, don't you? It must be about WIENER DOGS aka HOT DOGS aka LOOOONG DOGS aka DACHSHUNDS aka DOXIES. "

Go on over and check it out for yourself and you have to read some of the posts. I was cracking up. Don't know if I am talented enough to come up with one but at least now that I have posted about it and linked to her blog I can.

Can't wait to read some more entries!

I'm glad you're out of the "blues"...and the way time is flying by, April will be here before you know it!

I'm only watching segments of American Idol, I can't seem to get away from Tuesday lineup to watch the boys. Wednesday, I watch the girls and then miss results on Thursday. ARGH!

I am a faithful Hallie addict and haven't tried the limmerick contest yet but am having a BALL reading them! I did manage to send her a surprise email yesterday and she was tickled and smiling and I was happy she was!

It's 23 degrees in NC right now, so FL is sounding wonderful to me!
