Random, Mini-Blogs

So, I haven't posted another bloggity-blog thing because I can't decide on what I want to talk about. I have a couple of drafts I'm working on, but can't decide if I want to post them or not! So, I guess I'm going to make this post a complete, totally random post of stuff that pops in my head! This could get scary....

1). It cracks me that in my previous post when I complained about Facebook not allowing you to say as much as you want in your status updates, and then when they updated everything they NOW allow you to ramble on as long as you want!!! It's like that with stuff, though, isn't it?

2). I have realized as I'm getting older, I am a peacemaker. I avoid confrontation like the black plague! If anyone gets upset with me and I know about it, I'll be sick just thinking about it! I always worry about if I've upset someone. David always tells me I need to get over that! If you mess with my hubby or kids though, I'm going to make you disappear like Jimmy Hoffa.

3). I love to eat. LOVE. IT. I'm somewhat picky about what I eat. I like good, fresh, yummy food. I don't like alot of froo-froo stuff. I can't stand seafood. If I knew I was going to die tomorrow, and I had a last meal request, it would be my Mother's fried chicken, rice with HER gravy, sweet peas, my Grandmother's biscuits, my chocolate pound cake, and a Chick-Fil-A sweet tea. OR, I might want a huge salad with fresh veggies, sunflower seeds, bacon bits (real, not fake), and buttermilk ranch dressing. OR I might want Mexican food. OR maybe Chinese food, but good Chinese, not the MSG loaded garbage that you get at the corner restaurant where you JUST don't know if it's chicken or not. I'm hungry now.

4). I get real cracked when Christians are fake, legalistic, judgemental, self-righteous, etc. When I read about Jesus, and how He was when he walked on earth, he was none of these. He came to save and to be God in the flesh. So, if we are to be like Jesus, aren't we supposed to do that, too? I mean, I know we are not perfect. And no matter how hard we try, we will never have perfection on earth. But we are to try our hardest, right? I hear all the time people talking about what legacy they want to leave here on earth. I don't really think about that kind of stuff too much, but I want to be known for being someone who just loved. And gave. And served. And Lord love a duck, we all just need to learn how to get along and have a sense of humor!!!!

5). After #4, I feel the need to take up an offering. Or sing "Just As I Am".

6). Is it just me, or does it seem like time is moving faster? I know that when I was a kid, it seemed like the years dragged by so looooooonng!!! Now, I blinked and it's fall! Even my kids have said they feel like the year has flown by! Weird....

7). I can't figure out how to change the time that this says it posts. It is totally not accurate.

8). If I had a maid, I'd be cleaning my house before she came just so I wouldn't feel embarrassed by the mess. Good thing I can't afford one, right?

9). If I had 3 wishes, I'd wish for alot more wishes.

10). I think I'm done with this post.

Here I go!!

I have figured out a few things in my life. Some too late, but that's for another post. One of the few things I've figured is that Facebook can be a great tool for communication, as well as catching up with old friends, family members, and sharing the crazy things that happen in our lives. I've seen it bring friends back together, families reconnect, and new friendships formed. I have also seen it destroy marriages, divide the once undivided, ruin friendships, and destroy someone's life with one click of a reply or post. But for the love of Pete, I CAN'T SAY EVERYTHING I WANT TO SAY IN 442 CHARACTERS!!!!! So, that being said/shouted, I decided to take another run at a bloggity-blog. This blog is going to be a potpourri (which I do NOT smells awful!) of topics. I'll have some Jesus in here, some topics about being a wife to David, being Mommy to Anna, Chris, Ethan, Jaime, and Carrie, and being a total food lover (but I'm not a food snob!). I'll have some funny stuff (I hope!), serious stuff, stuff about my hubby and kiddos, and stuff about my world and it's craziness! I am not the most computer-savvy person in the world, but as I figure things out, I'll add pictures, pretty backgrounds, and all the other bloggity blog stuff that makes it cute.

You may be wondering about the title....I am, too. Hence the name. I've been trying to come up with a name for a week now and just can't think of a good one. Chris said I should name it "Mr. Potato Head Across America", but I thought I might get slapped with a copyright infringement lawsuit for that one. Anna suggeseted, "In A Pickle". That makes me hungry. So, for now, it's "The Untitled Blog"....if I get inspired, I'll let you know. :D Happy Reading!!
