– I’m going to be in a parade tomorrow night! Yay! Gonna be Ms. Ohio! No, actually I’m going with a small group of coworkers to represent at the local homecoming parade! I don’t think I’ve ever been in a parade! I was just asked today, because the lady who I guess planned some of it didn’t think I’d be able to walk because of my toe. But my toe is soooo much better now! I can stand on my tippy toes to turn on the air conditioning, and I can walk in my high-heel shoes. It’s like the lady in the commercials who has dentures and she can eat corn again. We just take those things for granted, ya know?
Anyway, so yes, I will be representing. There will be four of us – two will hold our company’s banner, two of us will be throwing candy. I should get my method down before showtime. Kind of like throwing chicken feed. I’m excited, people! It should be fun!
– Next Friday a small group from our choir will be singing patriotic songs with the local band. The guy who’s running the show has sent us a few updates for rehearsals. Monday we’ll practice for an hour, then Wednesday we’ll practice by ourselves first and then later with the band (are you taking notes yet?). Then it’s showtime! I’m excited about that too.
– I bought two more books this past weekend. I can buy books, oh yes. Getting myself off the internet and spending quality time reading those books is another story. The first book I bought this weekend, suggested by my lovely, awesome friend Ksra, is “Now, Discover Your Strengths”. It talks about how we’re so conditioned to dig into ourselves and find our faults and search for ways to fix them, but we never sit down and sort out our strengths. The book talks about taking stock of your strengths and using them to make your life happier and more fulfilling. It certainly gets me thinking, and that’s a great thing!
My mom and I went to a flea market on Sunday and just as we were ready to stop looking at stuff, I found the book “The Omen” in a box of other books. Had to buy it. Fifty cents.
Well I think that’s all I have in my head now. I feel like I’ve been slacking again with my blog, but it’s only been a few days. I was thinking of taking a blogging vacation – just take a break from it, but I can’t stay away from all of your blogs. And when I read your blogs I get all inspired again. See what you’ve done? Tsk.
