Wednesday Ramblings

Here’s a thought for you today: better late than never.  Am I right?  Yes, it might be later than usual but it’s still here.  So we shall ramble.  I’m not sure if you have ever looked up the definition of rambling.  But for fun, I did.

My friend Google states: rambling (of writing or speech) Lengthy and confused or inconsequential.

And that describes these posts entirely.  The truth is, I love writing these posts.  I write them for me and then some of you actually end up reading them and let me just say that I am honored that you do read them.  These posts are a chance for me to breathe…to remember what is going on in this week of my life.  This ramblings post is the 45th straight Wednesday ramblings posts and for a minute today I was a little worried that I would run out of time and not be able to get one done.  So thank you for reading about my crazy, random thoughts.  I seriously love you.  I love you all.

Alas, though, here we are.  And I have a few things to share today:

1. I got a flu shot today and I was really going to try hard not to complain but darn it my left deltoid hurts, you guys.  It hurts.

2. I am humbled, honored, excited and flabbergasted that Huff Post published this list and that I am on it.  Seriously, amazed.  And once again, I give the credit to you who is reading this.  I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you.  Well, and butter and brown sugar.

3.  If you need a chuckle, click here, here, or here. or see above.  Seriously, I need a life.

4.  And I hope you now have “Ice Ice Baby” in your head.

5.  Fall could never leave and I would not complain.  Between the multi-colored leaves, cool breezes, beautiful blue skies and amazing food, it can stay as long as it wants to in my book.  See here:

    I’m very sad we didn’t talk about this today. My arm hurts TERRIBLY from a flu shot too.

    • Cassie replied: — October 11th, 2012 @ 9:01 am

      Mine STILL hurts! I sleep on my left side and could barely do that because the spot is so sore…crazy!

    You just reminded me that I haven’t taken a flu shot. I was supposed to go last week but skipped it and now compeletely forgot about it. Thanks… it hurts? I’m scareeeed….

    • Cassie replied: — October 11th, 2012 @ 8:59 am

      Hey Nami! The flu shot doesn’t really hurt when you get it, it’s later on when the muscle is a little sore…but not too bad!

    Congrats on making “the list” – You have been at the top of “my list” since February of 1986! I knew others would eventually see what I have been talking about for over a quarter of a century now! I certainly don’t question myself anymore for those “fend for yourself” dinner nights we used to have every so often in the early 90s! I am thinking that helped you more than you will ever know ;-)

    • Cassie replied: — October 11th, 2012 @ 8:57 am

      Thanks, Mom! I owe it all to you! :-)
