Things that shouldn't be ...

There were a few of them today. I didn’t sleep well last night and had a hard time waking up for work this morning. It shouldn’t be hard to sleep after working a long hard day and coming home sore and tired and working more once you get there because there are things still to be done.

I grabbed the wrong toothpaste this morning because I was so sleepy. I keep a lot of things here for my youngest grandson because he’s here so often so it’s just easier. Things like extra clothes, a couple of sippy cups, toys of course and a toothbrush and toothpaste. This morning I grabbed his by mistake. My son bought it for him and brought it here for him to use. I didn’t know that they make toothpaste that tastes like bubblegum. Not spearmint or peppermint gum but the old fashioned kind of pink bubblegum you used to get with a sports card. Yuuuuuuuuuucccckkkk. That is NOT a taste I want that early in the morning (if ever) !! Toothpaste shouldn’t taste like bubblegum.

It shouldn’t be so damn complicated to just sign in at work. Why in the world do I have to not only log in on a computer through 4 screens but then turn around and phone it in also ?? What sense does that make ?? It shouldn’t be so complicated.

I had it in mind this morning to write this little blog when I got home and then the day just got worse at first break so it has ended up different than I had planned.

My first break at work I got a text message from Pink that a dear friend of ours had passed away. This man was truly a light in this world. He touched the hearts and minds of virtually everyone who came into contact with him. He was gentle and sweet and truly the kindest man I ever had the pleasure of knowing. He was honorable and loving and positive. He was generous and supportive and gracious. Wise and comforting and a wonderful writer and poet. He could turn a phrase like no other. There are not enough good words to describe this man who touched so very many. He never met a stranger and performed many anonymous acts of kindness. Others have said it much better than I will ever be able to express but he was truly a (K)Night of Old among men. The world has lost one of the great ones and lights such as his shouldn’t be extinguished so soon.

So.......................I'm guessing you don't like bubble gum flavored tooth paste.

Loved what you wrote about Chuck.

When I first concieved this blog yesterday morning it was going to be a funny one of the things that had gone wrong with my day. There were several other things I didn't mention but when I heard the news about Chuck it just kind of turned into a whole nother thing. We had talked quite a bit about me working in Montana this summer and had discussed meeting up for coffee (tea in my case) and I was looking forward to meeting him and the news of him passing was a real shock. I knew he was sick but he never said in our conversations that it was that serious so it kind of knocked me for a loop hearing about it.

Bruce ~ thank you.

Skwirl you are absolutely right !! Bubblegum toothpaste is an abomination !! It sure woke me up though.

No Sugar I didn't like it !!! How could you tell ??

Hog ~ the Double Bubble is all yours !!

Pink ~ you know me I'm always the first one to laugh at anything that goes wrong and try to make light of it. I will give him a hug and I'm sure he will want me to give you one back. He loves you too !!

Thanks everybody for the comments.
