Random thoughts for a rainy Monday...

1.  It's been raining quite a bit around these parts.  I'm officially at that point in the season where I have a ton of warm/hot weather outfits I'm dying to bust out, and I'm just impatiently biding my time.  C'mon, Mother Nature!  I've been a good girl this year.

2.  This weekend was filled with a little work, a little more sewing (I finally finished my pants project and they're amazing), and a LOT of Friday Night Lights.  I am still head over heels in love with Time Riggins - so much so that I think John is starting to get a little jealous.  Don't worry, I love you, baby!

3.  In keeping with the theme of bad wifing (is that a word?), the Meatball was sick Friday-Sunday.  It's such a horrible thing to admit, but I'm only good for about one day's worth of sympathy and care-giving.  God, I'm an awful person.  By the end of his three day lock-in, I admit I was quite a grump.  I think it's safe to say that I did not miss any sort of calling in the nursing field.  After all, you remember what happened last time I was called to be a care-giver.

4.  I went thrifting today and scored some seriously GREAT stuff!  There's definitely a strong navy blue tide taking over my wardrobe.  I also need to get rid of a bunch of stuff.  I hate having an over-stuffed closet.  So, it looks like I will be doing a huge update in the Blue Collar Closet.  I'll keep you posted!

5.  Oh, dear lord - while thrifting today, I saw the biggest. hair. ever.  I mean, it was inSANE!  It was a half-up / half-down little ditty.  Only the half-up part was half way to the moon.  I could only smile, though, because the little old woman under that mess was working. it.  Part of me looks forward to the day when I can be so brazen and just not care.

Happy Monday, all!

EDITED: Here's a Monday Rambling bonus for you.  A lot of you had no idea what a gypsy moth is. Well, I wikied them, so you can read all about their nastiness here.  I realize it's a bit of a regional thing, but the larvae (caterpillars) are what get really bad around here.  It's not uncommon to see planes spraying for them.  I remember one year, they were soooooo bad that when my parents took a drive around the mountain at my dad's hunting cabin, they had to periodically wipe the caterpillars off the car.  Okay, I can't talk about it anymore ... must go shower.  Eeeeeek...


  1. oh, ew. i hate gypsy moths so, so much. the worst is when you see trees just covered in those webs that they make. it makes me so sad!!!

  2. I cracked up re: your lack of nursing skills, esp that post re: your hubby's hospital visit. SO freakin' funny. Ah, Tim Riggins. Why is Taylor Kitsch not in anything else?? WHY?? I look forward to these posts every Monday!
