Brainstorm

I feel great today. Went to the beach with my family on Sunday and wow! Talk about a sensory overload. No, it wasn’t an overload, but it was great. The sights, smells, girls…hold up, did I just say that? It’s okay, I meant my girls. What were you thinking? Really looking forward to work today also. Isn’t it ironic that the things we hated so when young, are the things we end up loving the most as we get older. Haven’t we all heard stories of people that died right after retirement? I wonder if some just give up, feeling as though they are no longer a valid part of society? Nothing could be further from the truth of course, but I wonder sometimes how I will feel about it. Anyway, I know most of my posts have been and will continue to be downers, so I thought I would do a little brainstorming just for fun.

I love the colors light blue and royal blue used together. Game of Thrones is one of the best on tv at the moment. I never get tired of Lucky Charms. I hate hot winters. Where did that tic come from? What works for me, may not be what works for you. My family should spend more time together. Troy from Swamp People is so damn cool. Why have my dreams been so vivid lately? Homemade Toll House chocolate chip cookies are the best cookies ever made. Girl scout cookies run a close second. How could anyone pick dusk over dawn? There is nothing like the first sip of coffee in the morning. Why are most of my thoughts about food? Music is chicken soup for the soul. I never knew how much writing could help me. Until my kids have kids, they will never know how much I love them. I will probably never fly in a plane again. I have an insatiable desire to see more of my country. I can’t believe I spelled insatiable right the first time. I have no desire to travel outside my country. Is their a God? I love knowing people are reading my words. Will I smell the rain in one year?

Man, that is very fun thing to do. Think I might pull this post up and add to it every so often.

  1. My son is going to a methadone clinic. He is 27, tapering, and at 35mg right now. His best friend, a close friend since they were 5, died February 5th. He was an addict like my son, and the 2 were together when he died. A lot of trauma, guilt, and grief. Anyway, I just wanted you to know I’m reading your blog, for information. Thank you for writing it. Very helpful to me because I want to understand what my son is feeling. This is my favorite post so far.
