Some random crap for a late Saturday night

I have so much to blog, but I need my cord to download my pics and videos.  Then use the movie maker to edit myself out of them.  It's gonna have to wait until I get back home.  And find some time.

So many random thoughts.  Crazy.

Not me, but sometimes my thoughts.

I think I have ADD.  

Or maybe just too much caffeine.

Right now we're in SoCal for the kids' birthday's.  Chloee's was yesterday, Corbin's is next week.  Celebrating both and Luke getting away for Spring Break.  Win-Win-Win

Downside, I missed a 10k that I was signed up for with Splenda Daddy.  I guess we just got really expensive t-shirts instead.

Now I have to do a half marathon to secure my place in the St George marathon.  Coulda done 6 miles but now will do 13.

It's okay, I prefer the longer miles.

I need spring to come.  Bad.  Like a lot of sunshine.   Consistently!  This time of year is NOT good for the mKitty.  

Even in SoCal, it's been cold, cloudy and rainy. We drove into Oceanside to catch a movie and the beach was of course deserted and the ocean looked ticked.  It looked like how I felt.

On the upside, the kids got new running shoes today and I felt like I was of some value in making sure they got the good ones.  Can't believe how much I have learned in the past 6 months.  Amazeballs.

Chloee lost her first tooth today!  More on that later.  

I love Marine's.  Not much more to say on that, except there is such a definite feeling here on base.  I love it.  I love them.  I love what they represent.

Tonight's our last night here.  Chlo is in bed dreaming of the tooth fairy, the boys are playing Halo, Kar is on her computer, Splenda on his while dealing with work crisis and me on mine.  While it would be fun to have the 5 of us playing a game or something, it is even more enjoyable for me to sit and listen to my boys play their video game like old times.  

Without the swearing.  (when did they get so much better behaved than me?)

Today is 'tana's birthday.  I am bummed we missed it.  On the upside, she can spend it with her side of the family, and then we can enjoy it with her when we get home.  And I love that she and Tuffy will stay and keep the house and dogs in order.  What would I do without those kids?

Speaking of pets.  It's clear that Jack the fish is dying.  I've googled it.  I can see the writing on the wall.  One site told me to do the humane thing and not let him suffer a slow death in his bowl, not flush him as that would also prolong death, but instead to put him in a baggie with water and put it in the freezer.  He will go to sleep and pass without pain.  I'm not sure I can do that.  And what's bizarre is that I have had to put my fair share of dogs down due to old age etc, but this damn little beta fish is getting me and I just can't bring myself to freeze him to death.

Thoughts?  Ideas?  A volunteer?

I will be glad for my own bed.  I love my bed.  More than any other piece of furniture in my house.  I could live there and never leave it (other than necessary bodily functions).

For now, I am headed for the air mattress and getting some rest for the long drive home.  The one in which I don't usually talk because I am sad to leave my kids here.  The one in which, if I'm not careful, deep depression can set in.  The one in which I dream of the day that we are driving them all back to Utah.  

Yeah, THAT drive...... all 11 hours of it

Peace out my peeps.

I had to freeze a fish once. It wasn't that bad. I thought of how it must feel to be flushed down the toilet versus the freezer and the freezer won. Seemed like it would be less painful.

I'm sorry you have to leave the babies and that the beautiful weather we have had while you've been gone is supposed to get yucky.

Hope you have a safe trip home.

I love your randomness. Drive safe.

First of all, there is no such thing as too much caffeine.

I am so with you on this whole spring thing. I was in an unusually good mood one day last week and then realized that the sun was out.
Coincedence? I think not.

I wonder if massive amounts of caffeine make up for lack of sunshine?

Hope you are driving careful.
Looking forward to all the pictures.

Sorry about missing your 10K, I'm not sure I would be the one excited about doing a longer run.

I'd never heard about freezing a fish before.

I'm so glad you got to go see the family. I know how hard it is to be in UT this time of year. I was there for just two days and was ready to come back home.

I seriously love my bed too. And my couch. I think that's why Luvpilot and I can never go get a hotel room in the city or anything. Why leave a comfy bed and big TV to go pay for an expensive one a few miles away? I'd rather send the boys to Grammy's. Actually, I'd rather just keep everyone at home with me.

Love the whole post! Love that you got lots of time with the kids.

The word "amazeballs" has me smiling - Haven't heard that in awhile!!

I think I'll use it 10 x tomorrow - AMAZEBALLS!! LOVE IT!

Nothing beats being able to snuggle down into your OWN bed. I love mine too. Soooo comfy.
and quiet here in the country
and dark

so, about the fish, I have never "bonded" with them. I would have had not trouble freezing them or fileting them....whichever.

glad you are having such a great time with your kids and Chloe.
