Wednesday's Wrandom Wrambling

I feel down and don't know why. 

I should be happy, excited and giddy over the upcoming wedding, and don't get me wrong, I am seriously excited.... I just can't shake the blues.

My first marathon of the season is in a month.  I am seriously underprepared.  I should care more.

Chloee told me this morning that she wants to ride a horse.  A brown horse.  She then decided she WANTED a horse.  A pink one with eyelashes.  I'm totally on it.  Got it covered.

I got a fun Mother's day card in the mail today from Corb.  It is the EXACT same card as the one Luke gave me. Clear across the country, and they end up choosing the same card with 'swear' words.  Do they know me or do they know me?

I've been studying up and think I am going to give some Black Cohash a try.  Anyone got some first hand feedback? 

Did you know that even with Chloee's military discount, it was still cheaper to book her as an adult on a Southwest flight?  Yeah, I know.   Weird.  But props to the couple or so airlines that give military discount.  Jet Blue ain't one of them.  I think they should look into it. 

I'm a real fan of Southwest.

I was putting some Downy fabric softener in my washer the other day and the scent suddenly made me think of my Grandma.  I miss her.  I wish she were around still, but young.  Like my age.  And she could be one of my diva's.  And we could hang out.  That would be so awesome.

I get to go to lunch with my BFF SIL Friday.  I think we haven't really TALKED since Christmas.  I am excited, I love her.

Have I mentioned that I love Chloee's therapist?  She is so dead on with her assessments and what she recommends makes so much sense.  I'm thinking it has been a real blessing to have found her.  Chloee loves her and she is going to be crucial for the next months.

Which makes me pose the question - who the crap gives a four year old brownies for dinner and nothing else?

Yeah, I thought so.

Hoping our weather stays warm and sunny now.  I want to catch a little league game or two.

Years ago, my little baseball buddy in my neighborhood brought me a Yankee's pillow for Christmas.  It's just been hanging out with my other Yankee stuff in my Yankee room.  Chloee found it and because the material is soft flannel, she loves it and has adopted it as her own pillow.  So.stinking.cute!

And thanks to another great friend, I got a room in San Diego for 79.00 bucks a night!  at.a.MARRIOTT!   Which totally helps since financially we are going to be a money drain for the next couple of months.  Not complaining, just the reality.

I just realized that all within about a month's time, I have a triathlon, century bike ride, a marathon and a wedding.

Better go eat some ice cream and lose this bluesy 'tude!

Ice cream, chocolate, and pasta - the blues' medic kit.
Sorry about the blues.

" Hit It......." said...

Have you ever considered that your feeling blue is your body's way of dealing with all that you have been through in the last year. You have had to be strong for everyone and now that the crisis is over, you are feeling the down swing.

This happened to me many years ago, when I went through a divorce. I was great during the horrible crisis and then when everything was over, I had a stroke (i.e. literally). It pissed me off! My point is, your body knows when to let down.

I would love to get together. Call me.

Hope you feel better soon.

We have cookies and milk for dinner every Sunday. My kids have grown to expect it. But, it's coming off a big after church lunch cram fest, so I don't feel guilty in the slightest.

My triathlon is in a month too. I feel strong enough, I think, but still terrified of um, coming in last. Or falling off my bike. Or coming in last.

wendy said...

the Blue's can really sneak up on your. That's why I had to get on some "happy pills" and I am doing a little better. I seriously thought I was going to loose it.

Black Cohosh...tried it, didn't do anything. just me.

You have had a lot on your plate these last few months...and still many things coming up to deal with. Listen to your body and if you need a break or a rest...DO.IT.
(pssshh, listen to me, I don't even follow my own advice)

I adore you, so take care of yourself.

gigi said...

Embrace the ice cream!
I hope your 'blues' go away and your "tickled pink" comes back really soon!

Mae Rae said...

Wow and kisses! There is so much going on you make my head spin. No wonder you are down.

CountessLaurie said...

aww, sugar! I think Hit It is right. You are exhausted.

I would totally feed my kids brownies for dinner. Not every night, but what the heck... it's not gonna kill them... I say I would, but most likely I already ate them, so tough luck for the kiddos.

tammy said...

I'm sure the weather and everything you've been through, plus hormones are causing the blues. I'm sorry you're feeling that way. Hate it.

(Hit It's comment scared me. I keep telling Luvpilot all his stuff is going to cause me to have a heart attack or stroke now.)

Yay for Southwest! I love them in many ways. And nice on the room.

Who feeds a four year old brownies for dinner? Someone trying to bribe their love. Obviously not someone who has the child's best interests at heart.

You have a lot coming up. Better stock that freezer.

Lara said...

I love that they chose the same card. That is awesome.

And I'm so glad that Chloee is getting good help. I think about her a lot, and I'm glad she has you.

Cheeseboy said...

Good luck marathon training. I am still a long way from where I'd like to be.

Maybe you just have the pre-awesomeness blues? Sometimes, when I am looking forward to something, I will feel kinda down when it seems close, but still out of reach.

I like Southwest, but I totally dig watching TV on JetBlue.

carma said...

yep, you've go so much lined up you need to snap out of it. Easier said than done. I know. Been feeling rather bluesy myself as I begin my new Job to school transition.

That is an awesome coincidence about the cards and has gotta make you feel good about how well the boys know you!!

Brownies and nothing else for dinner. Was this on purpose or just plain ignorance or should I not ask?

Jillybean said...

I think that giving a four year old brownies and nothing ele for dinner is a terrible thing. Why was there no ice cream to go with the brownies??? There must always be ice cream with the brownies!
I'm really excited to see where you find a pink horse with eyelashes.

Tom said...

I love your ramblings. I write the same way in my journal. It sounds like you have plenty to keep you busy. Nothing stikes fear into my soul more than knowing that a maraton I signed up for is approaching and I haven't been training like I should.

Diaper Diva said...

I luv Southwest too. Oh and a Marriott pretty much any where but here sounds good to me right now. San Diego for sure promises better weather than UT.
I am so glad Chloee has a great therapist!

Teachinfourth said...

Makes me think of a bunch of random things as well...sometimes I feel down for no reason, too. I think that that is okay.

Sue said...

Even "blah" days are ok. I have them, everyone does.

I allow myself so much time to feel it, and then I say enough..get over it
and I focus on my blessings which you do all the time. You are such a positive, happy, grateful person..

Poopy days just give me a reason to pamper myself a litle more.

I'm thankful that treats always make me feel better!

I want a Pink Horse too!!!
