Grammatical Pet Peeve

Y’know how people will say, “I’m running around like a chicken with my head cut off”? That is *so wrong*!! The *person’s* head isn’t cut off; the chicken’s is! To say it properly: “I’m running around like a chicken with its head cut off”

This is cool!!

GoogleFight is a neat little page in which you enter two opposing words/phrases and it will search both and supply you with the winner! You should check it out 🙂

Last night

I dreamed that my mom-in-law found out she was pregnant! LOL! (Can’t happen…she doesn’t have the equipment anymore.) It was quite a dream.

Also, I have re-entered the world of Worth1000! I entered a text contest.

Oh, dear…

Too much something… poor Rae lost her dinner 🙁

Today was a good day.

My friends from an hour east of us came over and spent the afternoon/evening. We had a good time with them. We ate, chatted, gave them presents, played dominoes, and took them with us to our church, where we had a ‘party’ – food and games – after the service. It was a lot of fun! I’m very glad they could come over.

The funeral is tomorrow.

I called my mom tonight and she said they got a few inches of snow while they were up there! She said she’s seen a lot of people she hasn’t seen in years.

I called my grandpa after that, and we talked for a while. He told me what happened, and how he’d felt. We talked about the bear that had spent time on his property, and he told me about moving his garden. He mentioned that he’d been bringing in his birdfeeder to help keep the bear away and that he’d forgotten to (10pm) and my uncle -who is there with him- went out to get it – barefoot – in -2 weather! I told Grandpa it sounded like my boys – and I guess I have no hope! LOL!

It was good talking to him, and I definitely plan to call more often.

My grandmother died today.

My mom’s mom. I’m sad that I didn’t keep in touch better; I was very close to them when I was a child. I’m sad that my children never got to meet her. I’m glad I have hope of seeing her again in Heaven.

This is only the third close family member in my life that God has taken home.

Weird dream…

Weird/sad…

We lived in an apartment on this highway – three lanes each way with a median between – and one day I found a scooter on the median, abandoned, so I took it home. I had a great time riding it here and there. My mom & dad came to visit, and we went with them and a dear friend of my MIL’s and some other people. We were headed somewhere else and for some reason my MIL’s friend was on the road, and I was on the scooter, and somehow she got in front of me and I ran over her… and it caused some terrible abrasions on her legs. 🙁 And then Nate & I were heading home after we got her to someone who could take care of her and whoever was taking us would *not* let me go back down the median and get the scooter *I* had abandoned after the accident, and I had a sense of loss over that. Then suddenly Nate & I & MIL were not in a car, but in a very very very long hallway that went through a building. Mostly it had apartments off the sides, but occasionally an apartment *included* the hallway. One of them had the kitchen and living room right in the hallway, with the bedrooms off the sides. They had a dozen children and a couple of the youngers ones waylaid us and requested that MIL read them a story, and she was delighted to do so. So while she did that, Nate & I went in and visited with the youngster’s mom and dad, then took a nap. When we woke up, MIL had gone and I was topless (eek!) and had to find my clothes to put them back on. Once I did, I told the mom that it wasn’t the first time I’d napped on her couch, remembering – in the dream – that I’d made the journey down this long hallway once in college.

Very strange, very very strange.

My word!

I’m a bit behind!! It’s been a *week* since I last posted here!

I’ve been very busy. I had a web site to do – I think I’m mostly finished with it, unless the customer isn’t happy, in which case I may have a bit more work to do.

With Christmas coming up, I have a lot I need to get finished with.

I’ll try to update more often, though.

According to


“With your charm and charisma, it’s no wonder you’re so popular. It is that easy-going attitude that makes you the preferred penguin wherever you are. Of course, you’re not one to squawk, but you can’t help it if your plumage turns heads. Rest assured, you are as smooth as a bottle of the Little Penguin Merlot.”

Well, I can’t say I agree with all of that… but whatever. It was fun to take the test, anyway 😉

I just like these guys for their penguins!
