TT #70


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


13 things that are going thru my mind right now.

1. Is my job going to get better? Its really stressing me out.

2. Why cant I be a stay at home Mom? Even though my son is almost 17 and I cant afford it...that shouldnt matter, should it?

3. Is it Friday yet?

4. I cant wait until the stuff with my fathers estate is settled.

5. I need central air. Swamp coolers suck.

6. Am I the only one that does things around here? Sometimes it feels like it.

7. I hope my son passes his second semester of summer school. What if he doesnt?

8. What bills need to be paid this week?

9. I need a vacation.

10. I totally have writers block this week. I hope it passes.

11. Where do the ants come from and what in the heck are they after in the bathroom? on my night stand? on the kitchen table? **heavy sigh**

12. How am I going to survive the next 2 weeks at work?

13. God I hate doing laundry. It never ends!!! Every day, day after day...

First, I love your sidebar photos.

Second, where do those damned ants come from and why in the loo? Yeesh.

Third, you always make my week. Thanks.

Oh my goodness, I thought I was the only one with all those random thoughts.

With so much running through my mind, I'd NEVER get to sleep. Hope typing it here helped you let it go and that you're relaxing in bubble bath or reading a good book now.
Hugs and blessings,

I've only been able to focus on my baby boys eyes for the last 24 hours but there were lots of random thoughts going on there too. Come on by and see if you feel any better. LOL - Happy TT

I guess I'll join your club now that I'm a single parent once again. Sigh. As for the ants, they are bad everywhere... and big suckers too! Happy T13!

Meju said...

Sorry things seem to be a bit rough for you right now... hope the ants run away from home and soon.

forgetfulone said...

Oh, this sounds so much like what goes on in my mind! Thanks for visiting me.

Denise Patrick said...

Great random thoughts. But, I think it's time to let the 17 y/o do his own laundry. :~D

Thanks for visiting my TT!

Every time I come here I'm surprised by how relevant your posts are to me -- and I have never married nor ever a parent! I have window units in this condo and I, too, long for central AC. And Gawd, LAUNDRY! (Thanks for visiting my TT)

I'm not sure I want to make a list of what's running through my mind--might scare people off. ;-)

On the ants, fill a bottle with water and a bit of liquid dish detergent and squirt them. They dry up and die without all that chemical stuff of a spray. As to where they're coming from (sigh) wish I knew.

Sending lots of good thoughts your way and crossing my fingers for your son that he passes.

Clara said...

Tough list. Hope your son passes. I know what you mean about the ants. I get screaming fits in spring and early summer when they're all over my kitchen and laundry.


Come by and see my trip to the lake.

Tempest Knight said...

I hear you on #1, 3 and 9! I hope you get out of your funk and get into the writing groove. :)

Michelle said...

Wow, you and I have many of the same thoughts. Sometimes my mind wont shut up. LOL!!! Great TT and thanks for stopping by my place.

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

Okay, now I'm depressed because you've got me thinking about the bills and the laundry. LOL!!

Nicole said...

Your blog is great. I loved your TT and have had many of those thoughts LOL

I hope you get your answers soon.

Chelle Y. said...

I have a couple loads of laundry to do today! Thanks for reminding me! Yuck!

Open Grove Claudia said...

((hug)) It sounds like you just have a lot on your plate. I'm in the middle of an esta-tastrphy, so I have some idea of what might be going on with your father. Not only do you lose a person, you inherit... anyway.... ;)

Happy TT

Girl, you sound so stressed. We had a swamp cooler when I was growing up. It was nice and cool in that one room, but it put a lot of moisture into the air. We just have 2 box fans, but it doesn't usually get above 80 here so the fans are fine. This week it's been in the mid 70s. That pretty nice for mid July.

Chuck said...

Oh dear, Lori. You're struggling. I bring you camomile (sp?) tea? Hang in there and do what you can to relax. *deep breath*

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Sounds like you need a vacation, my friend!

And believe me, I wish money didn't matter and everyone (mom or dad) who wanted to could stay home with the kids. Even when you're ready to strangle them...

Happy TT, my friend.

marcia said...

hey Lori i have great luck keeping those crazy tiny ants out with Cinnamon just sprinkle it around

Nicholas said...

Yes, you do need a vacation. Come to Florida!

Nicole Austin said...

Writers block sucks! Might be because of all that stuff running around in your mind. I hope it passes soon!

Robin said...

Can I just say ditto to a bunch of those?

I hope things calm down for you and you find a measure of calm soon.

Hey, it is Friday now. Sorry I'm late...
