As I Drink My Coffee This Morning……

Good Morning Dear Readers,

As I drink my coffee this morning I am thinking…..I really don’t like this coffee today and I may switch it up soon to Diet Pepsi…..I don’t even know why????

That covers a lot today……I don’t even know why????  I don’t know why I have been feeling totally unmotivated lately.  I guess I need to recharge my batteries.  I don’t really even feel like going anywhere or doing much.  We have been floating in the new pool a lot.

Is it because of the weather?  It is very HOT here in Tucson, but of course it’s a dry heat!!!!   Every time I hear someone say that, I think what are they talking about????  HOT is HOT any way you look at it, right?

Is it because we have finally finished a 2 month construction project here.  Maybe?????  That project really took a lot out of me, with the constant blowing up of dust and all the changes happening here.

New pool, new yard.

Or, is it because I am shorted out?????  It seems to be that since Michael died, if I put too much or much on my plate I feel totally overwhelmed.  I really don’t know?  Louise is going to ask her therapist about all of this today for me.  I really don’t know or understand.

Old pool, old yard. New pool, new yard = $$$$$$$

I do know one thing.  I need a vacation or a change of scenery.  Mr totally doesn’t understand any of that.  He would be happy staying in this house forever.  But, in his job, he is on the road in a work bucket truck 40+ hours a week.  We are trying to plan a short weekend to San Diego soon.  That’s a big deal for him.  Last year I got him on a real vacation and he had a really good time once he got his mind around all of that.  And I am having a real vacation in August.  I am going to see Angel Girl in San Diego and we are going to the beach every day.  That is a real vacation for me.

Vacation a few years ago.

Do ya all ever just feel like you want to JUST BE??????  That’s how I am feeling right now.  

We were really busy on the weekend, we had all of Mr’s kids and grand-kids here to BBQ and swim in the new pool.  We had a really good time and Mr loved it.  So, that’s what it is all about.

I really feel like this is a boring story today and maybe that’s because I am bored and don’t really have much going on.  I am very happy right now reading novels from Amazon on my Kindle and watching Netflix.  What is wrong with me???????

But, I did figure out how to take pics from my phone and load them on my computer so today I am going to show you real pics from my real life.

It’s been fun showing ya all real pics from my real life.

Real Thelma, not pretend Thelma.

Have a great weekend and please can someone tell me what’s wrong with me???????

(Maybe I have lost weight)!!!!!  This was a few years ago.

Meet My Beautiful, Smart Friend Today…….The Mouthy Mermaid Honors some Wonderful Young Women

Good Morning Dear Readers,

In the wake of all the negative crazy crap happening in our world today, I really feel American is in such a bad situation and pray about it every day. But, a positive note today:  I want to honor my sweet friend who is graduating High School next week.

Remember, the Lovely Miss M?

The Lovely Miss M

Her beautiful 18 year old daughter is graduating as Valedictorian of her class and is honored to attend college at The United States Air Force Academy.  This beautiful young women is half Hispanic and half Anglo, speaks fluent Chinese and Spanish, has been appointed by a Senator to attend the Air Force Academy and is an accomplished soccer player.

Besides all of that, she is a helpful, sweet, wonderful, kind, caring young women.  And very smart.

And, her mother and I cried about the Air Force school, not our bag.  She also got accepted at Berkeley, and her mother said “Can’t my daughter just wear a hippie skirt and hug a tree?” But, no she can’t and doesn’t want to.

Angle Girl’s 2 daughter’s are wonderful women, 1 studying Engineering and 1 studying Math and Dance.  Again, both will be wonderful contributors to society.  And, both are kind, sweet, smart and caring people.

You go Angel Girl, you did a great job.

These stories and these young people give me hope and faith that our world won’t always be the way we are seeing it now.  Now, with so much HATE and VIOLENCE EVERYWHERE.  Where has all the kindness gone?  Where is watch out for your neighbor gone?  Where is honoring religious rights gone?  Where is our education system going?  Is all we think about as American’s is $$$$$$?   I would be interested in hearing your answer.

Is our Mr Trump a good example for  us, for our children, for women?  Please give me some feedback on this.  What do you think about how he treats women?   HMMMMMMM?

I hope these wonderful young people can use their educations to change things up because in my view point NOTHING IS RIGHT RIGHT NOW.

So, to all the new graduates out there, go, fly, live your lives and please make a difference in our world.  You can do it.

Please leave me some comments!!!!!
