Random Thoughts From Kellie's Brain

The kids are taking a test. I have thirty minutes to type at you. Which means this post will probably not be re-read, spell checked, or even interesting. 

It will be random, and assuredly light-weight.

- It is raining here for the bagillionth day in a row. I need some dry ground and some sunshine.

- Puppy training in the rain, day and night, is exceptionally trying.

- Speaking of puppy training, the night before last after Sophie had done her "biz-ness" at 2:30am, I sleepily trudged up the stairs.  Only I missed the second to the last step and fell down hard on my knee. However it has been my lower back that has been barking ever since.

- Oh! The sun just popped out! Hooray!

- I had mentioned here that The Mister bought me an "illegal" Christmas present after we had decided to not exchange.  I am so glad he did!  He bought me this. I have wanted it for so long now!  

- I miss Chex Mix.  OF all the cookies and candies and treats I made over the holidays I consumed Chex Mix in massive quantities. As a matter of fact, I gave more than half of my cookies and mix away, but I still have DOZENS of cookies and baked goods in the freezer. The Mix? Completely out. Rats! I use this recipe. 

- I am usually a "sweet" girl. Not a "salty" girl.

- Janel of DandylionDayz emailed me and asked how the puppy training was going? I wrote back early this morning and told her that it was going pretty well, and that we hadn't had too many accidents.  Since that email, the puppy has peed on the kitchen floor 4 times.

-The sun just left again.

- At this very moment I am completely caught up in laundry. Perhaps it is the emotional out burst I had on Sunday afternoon.  I actually cried y'all. Which is weird for me.  

- I should have emotional outbursts more often.  They are quite productive.

-For those of you who played the One Word challenge,  I am still thinking of One Word that I want to be my focus in the coming year. If I have to keep it all year, I want it to be the right one.

- I am still sending Christmas Cards....there are about 5 or 6 people who were on the list, but I didn't have updated addresses for. There are some that are going to end up with an e-card because I ordered them without consulting THE LIST. So I didn't order enough. I kept telling myself I'd "get to" the last few cards, and i haven't "gotten there" yet.  

- I have had a few people ask about True Campaign and if I will be writing anymore about it. The answer is that I hope to in the future.  We have gone through so much change in the last four months that my head is still sort of spinning. I thought about writing my thoughts between Thanksgiving and the New Year (which can be a difficult time for those with food/body issues) but the days just got filled up and I didn't take the time to sit down and write out any cohesive thoughts. If you read this blog because you found me through True, I have not forgotten about you! 

- I think my time is up. But one last thing....

- On New Years Day I posted my 800th post! Can you believe it? I am sorry I missed it! To celebrate I am going to go on a Blogger's Limb and do something I have never done before: open up the blog to questions you have wanted to ask. If there are questions you have just been DYING to know, but you are waiting for an invitation...ask away and I will try to post answers by The Weekend.

La Vida Dulce!

O very cool bible! It has been raining up here like crazy as well!

meh said...

Congrats!! I have so enjoyed your blog and look forward to another 800!!

Hmmm! What have I always wanted to know about you and just never asked?! Oh, I know! If you had to, which would you give up: blogging or coffee? Can't wait to hear...and you HAVE to choose one or the other.

By the way, I guess my word this year is Love. It is the fruit of the Spirit that I am focusing on this year and I am so excited about it.

My question: Are those black patent leather dansko clogs I saw on your feet in the photo on the last blog post??!!!!

Blue Skies said...

I was wondering the same thing as Jen with 1 "n". I have a pair of brown Dansko's that I bought for our Canada trip and I love them. I need a black pair now. I call them my Granola Girl shoes. I had to promptly go and buy some cool socks to go with them. Fun fun.
We have got to TALK. I have so much to share that isn't 'net worthy yet. love ya!

Wow -- 800 posts! You are prolific! :) Congratulations, that's a great accomplishment. Hmmmmm. Questions for you... Would it be off limits to ask about the story behind the tattoo?

I love how you say "type at you". LOL. And I couldn't link to your surprise Christmas gift. We have a software to keep out bad stuff but it also keeps out a lot of good stuff lol. So dish! What did The Mister get you?

Musings of a Housewife said...

Oh hold on. It worked. I WANT THAT BIBLE! It's on my wish list.

Tanya said...

I haven't finished my Christmas cards yet either. I did something really stupid. I hand-stamped all my cards -- wait! that's not the stupid part! When making the cards, I did an assembly line process where I did all of one step then all of the next, etc. Well, I started to panic that I wouldn't get them mailed out in time so as soon as I had completely finished a batch of like 20 cards, I mailed them. Now the stupid part: I didn't cross names off my address list! So only a portion of people got Christmas cards from us and I can't remember who got them.

Those could have been random
thoughs from Michele's brain too.

-Crazy weather here
-puppy training here is trying as well
- i LOVE this new Bible. I want either this one or Kay Arthur's amplified Bible. My b-day is coming up at the end of this month and my sister has already told me she is getting me the Kay Arthur. How does your new Bible compare to your other ones? So sweet of the Mister to break the rules; and what a better way to break the rules than with buying a Bible, right?
-I didn't send out all of my Christmas cards either this year

Congrats on your 800th post! WOW!
