A Seriously Random List  
After thinking that today would be chock full of STUFF that I had to do, I find myself home, sipping on a homemade cafe mocha, and sitting.

*I like sitting.

*It annoys me when restaurant restrooms have some clever indication on the doors instead of simply reading "Women" or "Ladies." I don't want to think, I just want to pee. Thank God for the braille placards that have the right words.

*Sometimes yellow lights were meant to be run. Think about that, Amarillo drivers.

*I'm tired of all the pumpkin recipes, food blogs of the world. Gross. Please stop.

*Writing, after not having done so in nearly a YEAR, is hard. Really hard. I haven't lost the impetus, but I'm clearly out of practice.

*Carpooling is GENIUS. Whoever came up with it gets two gold stars and a kiss.

*My grandmother had a stroke last Wednesday, but is in therapy now and may even get to go back to her own home in a few weeks. I think that's brilliant and miraculous! Amen.

*Still disappointed in Bones and Castle. Boo, hiss.

*That science experiment list from a few posts back? The eight year-old's. I have bigger problems than I thought.

*I've started a new bag design, and it is CUTE. More work, but CUTE. Did I mention that it was cute?

*I've planted over 250 bulbs and separated a crapload of irises over the past few weeks. I want to see the flowers. Now. Alas, I won't get to until spring. Delayed gratification sucks out loud. Can anyone identify?

*The priority inbox feature on gmail is wonderful.

*Time to start thinking about Christmas shopping. I do so love making those lists.

*Don't forget to enter November's contest, HERE. Tell me what you're thankful for, and win a prize. Maybe. :D

I like sitting too. Especially with coffee in hand.

Is now the time to plant all the bulbs? Like daffodils, tulips, ect?? I love irises.

It is time. Well, here it is. They need a little time to root before the first hard freeze, I think.

I love irises, too, but mine were taking OVER, and we've only lived here two and a half years. Now they'll have room to take over other parts of the yard. :)

Oooohh! Thanks for the update on Granny. I've been concerned.

Cute! Cute as all get out! xD

hehehehe! Can't wait to see what your bigger problems are with that cuter than cute fella that you have. *g*

She's tough. I still worry about her.

Thanks! I think so, too.

Oh, everyone has problems. Just different. And my cute fella starts his share. He's still cute, though.

Well I am still sending prayer for comfort and healing. ♥

He really is. It just tickled me so that he had a list. Can't wait to hear what becomes of it. xD

Oh super scary about your grandma - so glad she's in therapy and doing well though.

I pretty much adore my bag and think it's the cutest thing in history - so I have a hard time believing your new bag is as cute - sorry. ;)

And thank you for the song at FB - I'm still feeling icky - but it helped lots.

I can't believe Jay wouldn't sing it to you!

And I posted pics. Believe it, believe it.

I know right!? He's a butt sometimes - but I love him (and his butt) so I will just have to live with dear friend who will sing to me when I'm sick instead.

The list was your eight-year-old's? Haha. Did Aaron explain what the list was for?

Apparently, the substitute told them to outline a science experiment. He was under the impression that he was going to get to BUILD it the next day.

He was a little miffed when I told him that wasn't going to happen with all the match and gas and so forth.
