Monday Musings - May 4, 2009

And here they are!

1. Rain. Ugh! I know we need it, but where's the gopher wood and "what's a cubit?" I think I saw wild animals collecting themselves in pairs in the wooded area next to the house.

2. The pool is nearly ready--now if only the weather would cooperate I could actually swim and not develop hypothermia just thinking about diving in.

3. Puppies are a lot of fun to train--they are a lot like training children--and just when you think they've got it--you realize there is more work to do!

4. I hate it when both the teams I'm cheering for lose on the same day (O's and Pens)

5. I had 66 hours of plans for a 60 hour weekend but I only accomplished about 43 hours of the plans. What happened to the rest of the time, do I get it back? Is there the possibility of a "do-over?"

6. Grass grows really fast when it is warm and rainy. Now if it would only stop raining long enough for it to dry so we could cut it. Does it really make sense? We plant grass, fertilize it, and make it grow so that we can cut it. And then we do it all over again, why?

7. A rainy Sunday is a good day to sleep in late, take a nap, go to the store, and spend some time with family--like the grand sons! The hard part, is forgetting about what I should be doing rather than what I am doing and being in the moment. But an awesome lasagna cooked by my daughter really helped.

8. Makayla likes sleeping on the bed with the rest of the "pack!" Does that make me more of a dog, or her more of a person?

9. Business trips are a good idea when they are being planned, but a rotten idea when you actually have to go on them. I'm flying to Colorado Springs for the rest of the week. And guess what? It's raining there, too!

10. April showers bring May flowers. Hey, wait, it is already May! Turn off the showers!
