Listless thoughts of a rambling mind...

As I sit here looking at the television (I say "looking" because I'm not paying close enough attention to be watching it), my mind rambles through tons of aimless thoughts. Below are just a few of those said thoughts....

1. After the extremely hot and dry summer season, I wonder if we'll be denied the pleasure of enjoying the beautiful colors associated with autumn. What will Halloween and Thanksgiving be like without all the vibrant reds, yellows, and oranges that usually decorate the wondrous nature that surrounds us?

2. What has the world come to when people find it easier to make excuses about why they can't (or won't) keep in touch instead of picking up a phone and dialing a few numbers, even if just to say "Hello"? Lord knows they don't mind calling when they need something. It's no wonder why people have resorted to screening their incoming calls.

3. The older I get the more I realize how very few true friends I really have in my life. Some have been lost over time for various reasons (lost touch, moved away, or walked away). Some chose a life outside the realm of our friendship (drugs, crime, or hurtful behavior). Others have showed their true colors, leaving me to believe that I'm better off without them. In my opinion, you can never have too many friends, but I'd rather have a few "true" friends than a lot of bullshit artists disguised as friends in my life. Just sayin.

4. I've realized that my family isn't the only one full of drama, problems, and troublemakers. Most families (whether they want to admit it or not) have a black sheep, a drama queen/king, a drug addict, or someone on the verge of a mental breakdown. Listening to other people's stories has helped me realize that my family isn't as abnormal as I initially thought. Thank goodness.

5. Every year we say we're going to start Christmas shopping in September in order to avoid the madness of last minute purchases, but each year, just like the years before, we find ourselves in the stores on Christmas Eve, fighting with the increasingly aggressive holiday shoppers. They can be so vicious. This year we plan to do better. However, knowing us like I do, I'm sure we'll be in the midst of the crowd, working to make sure our daughters are full of smiles on Christmas morning. We usually don't stop shopping until they close the doors, and even then, we're still wondering if we got everything.

6. Graduation from college wasn't quite what I expected. I'm not sure exactly what I expected, but I do know that I don't feel any differently than I did prior to graduation. I don't feel any smarter. I don't feel any more important. I definitely don't feel any richer since I've been unable to put the degree to use (finding a job within my degree field has proven to be more difficult than I expected). However, I do have a pretty piece of paper the college gave me to display for my efforts. It's currently hanging on my wall, and I look at it daily. In all actuality, the whole college experience still seems so surreal.

Ok - my thoughts have slowed down a bit, and I think it's time for a nice, hot bath. Until next time, may you all have a wonderful night and the sweetest of dreams.

1) A drouth shouldn't affect the colors that much. At least it never has around here.

2) People are becoming more self absorbed every passing year. And why not.... every bit of advertising tells that's exactly what you should do. Have it YOUR way. Just DO it. Have it now.... but it all........ not much sharing in those messages.

3) yep

4)

Hey... we just had to learn to put the fun in dysFUNctional

5) My ex usually got the kids Christmas day and I'd do Christmas with them the following saturday. Do you KNOW how great the sales are the day AFTER Christmas? EVERYONE should delay their gift giving for a few days. lol

6) Never went to college. Missed ALL the good parties. lol My son graduated about 3 years ago and never got a job in his field either. Guess the degree is just a sign that you are willing to put forth the effort to actually finish ?

Nice collection of thoughts. Pretty focused actually.

Good Morning Angel.......

Your thoughts all make perfect sense, and just know that you are not alone within your thoughts..... you are absolutely right. It wasn't until last year, when I able to look at my family and openly admit that they (notice I didn't say I....lol!!!!).... are dysfunctional. I always wondered to myself if we were the only ones, and so I used to keep it all inside, because I didn't want to be judged by some of my other family members actions...... you are right..... EVERY family has something going on.

As for your college degree.... keep your chin up! Something will come along! I remember feeling the same damn way after graduation. You kind of look around and say.... "I busted my ass for this"?? Maybe if you move to Carolina, you would be able to find a job in your profession!!!!!

I don't even want to think about Christmas shopping. My boys are very easy to shop for, and they are very appreciative of the smallest things.... but it is just easier not to even think about it!

Try to have a good day!!

Graduation from college wasn't quite what I expected

Now you will join the rest of us who have graduated in some manner in partaking of the occasional nightmare where you sit taking your exams but not having revised!
