Mary Chapin Carpenter - Some times you are the windshield and some times you are the bug.
So I got to be the bug today.
Behind the scenes of a slightly chaotic world - books, gardening, kids, pets, and recipes with a touch of style! A collection of random inspirations and observations about life.

What We Leave Behind
Earlier this week I ran into someone I had not seen in a while. In seeing him I realized how many people and activities I'd let go in my struggle to keep a dying relationship alive. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy spending time with certain people.

The Day the Music Woke Up
I have always loved music. One of the things that attracted me to my ex was his passion for music. When he left all the music stopped. And the color bled out of my world.

How Do You Define You?
At work recently we did a promotion to make our sales folks more "accessible" by having them answer some questions. And I realized I couldn't give ONE answer to most of them.

Have you ever noticed that life moves in a pattern?
A few weeks ago, I stopped by my grandmother's house for a visit. Her bathroom looked like a pharmacy. I was unaware she currently needed that much medication and was concerned. She said it was from last year when she was sick. (She was super sick last winter; we thought we were going to lose her. Should have known better. She's going to be 89 this year - tough as ever.) She knew not to flush the medication but found the Triad pill drop option too far away as she no longer drives much. I offered to drop them at the next Triad for her. So, the unneeded medication came home with me and was placed in a brown bag labelled "5/16 - TRAID" - that way I wouldn't forget. The very next day I got an e-mail from my church - that Sunday we were collecting unexpired prescription medication to be given away on a medical mercy mission to Cuba. Problem solved!

The Mystery of Who
Action flicks are addicting. I love them. Basically because I hate working out, and they motivate me. Occasionally they also make me think about life.

If this were a romance novel, right now a handsome stranger who is handy with tools would be moving in to the house across the street.

As noted in Funniest Commercial Ever, I adore commercials. I think of them as snippets of Americana.
