A thoughtful Thursday and some fun

Leave a comment

I thought about getting up but rolled over and slept another hour. I thought about a shave but I like my beard. I thought about my children and wondered what they were doing. I thought about where to go for breakfast and lunch and Taco Bell sounded like a good combination. And then I thought better of that idea.

Watch your flight path Saturday night.

I thought I’d get a Mega Millions ticket so I can join in the delusion. I thought I’d feel better today. I thought I could talk my wife into staying home today but forget she had doctors appointment. I thought I’d wash the car being the sun is going to be out for a bit. I thought it was a good time for a quiet morning but then I turned on some music. I thought about dancing so I did.

I thought about getting in better shape so I went up and stared at what was in the fridge. I thought about reducing the number of Cokes I drink each day but then I worried about making their stock price crash. I thought about what it used to feel like to take the motorcycle out on a day like today.

I thought about the coming weekend and started to duck walk like Chuck Berry. I thought about those poor people in the south that are still homeless and committed to making a donation tonight. I thought about what it would be like to have a pet again. I thought about how I miss my Mom’s smile when I looked at her picture.

I thought about how optimistic I feel again being a Laker fan. I thought about what Big 10 game my Son and I should attend being the Terps sent me a schedule. I thought about eating ribs from the Corner Stable. I thought about how I wasted some of my life just being unhappy because of the way I was looking at things.

I thought about one of my best friends who is traveling who I haven’t seen in a while. I thought about what I would do today if I was retired. I thought about doing early voting again. I thought about cutting the grass today but then I thought better of that. I thought how its going to feel seeing some old friends this weekend.

I thought about calling my doctor’s office and finding out when my next appointment is because I can’t remember S*** anymore and I believe I lost the card I had it written on. I thought about what to write about today. I thought about my Daughter who is in the family way and smiled so much I sprained my cheeks.

I thought about opening up more in my writing but didn’t know where to start. I thought about this quote (“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt”) after that last thought. I thought about how people are so different but the same. I thought about doing more post a day now that I’m almost at a daily pace finally.

I thought about the vision difficulties I’m experiencing and my stress level went up. I thought about those who serve and protect us and my stress level went down.

I thought about how few people will read through this but if my children one day read and enjoy it than I’m blessed.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Toga Toga Toga – sorry there, had a flashback.

A happy person is a productive person.

The Mega Millions name finally fits.

My tan is fading. How many days till Spring?

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
