Still Crazy After All These Years

I've been obsessed.

It is part of my particular contiguous nature - meaning, in my head anyway, the pieces of myself that do form the whole. You know, the sum of the parts is greater than the whole.


Yes, I think I mean that.

But, obsessed still. This is a long way of saying I do have an obsessive nature. So the latest in my obsessions is YouTube. The beginnings of this, as many of my obsessions, comes from my early morning rumblings and wanderings on the internet. It was bound to happen - so many times when a thing is researched that search will lead you to YouTube.

So now I'm finding myself down rabbit hole after rabbit hole. One subject with dozens and dozens of answers. I dig in!

  • How to apply makeup, tightlining in particular
  • How to create a messy bun
  • How to pick an organizing system
  • How to clean dirty grout
  • How to make perfect coffee
  • How to have the loveliest skin
  • How to set up your 2017 agenda

Nothing earth shattering, but everything orbiting in my obsessions. I'm discovering that no matter how much of a nut I believe my doings and oooings, refoldings and holdings, disciplines and lack of disciplines - there is someone out there nuttier than I could dream of being.

Such comfort!

Is that bad?

And the community of women! Lovely lovely women! Talented, smartly spoken, beautiful, kind, knowledgable, sharing women. My search list is varied and long. I'm obsessed!

I think I want to join them.

I do confess things in my hidden delightful place, this blog. Because it's out here in scary, scary land, but it's also everyman's land. The land that time has forgotten. Because we don't, for the most part, read more than headlines (I'm not counting all of us book readers) so the actual words written here in this hidden place are safe and camouflaged. And I love a disguise!

Bisou my beauties.

I'm Still Hungry

Two and a half and stinkin cute.
What is it about getting older that has you taking your own inventory each and every day? I haven't figured if this is a good thing or a bad thing. It certainly is a thing!

Steadfast in my thinking, wishy-washy in my beliefs. tender-feelinged in more than a few moments. I feel as though I'm "working" on all of this always and forever. Is this good? Sheesh! The things out of my control are the things that are out of my control! Stuck and stymied. Yuck and ish!

The Daily Gratitude List

Todays is this:
  • healthy
  • family is healthy
  • more often than not happy
  • when not happy I dig deep to find the facts of it
I was recently at a family event and a few members (Pup's family I should say) were saying that they are blah blah age and don't have to try anything new if they don't want to. I said, out loud as my bad luck would have it, that if I didn't have a desire to learn or try new things when given an opportunity or even seek out those opportunities, I would be sad each and every day!

The people I know that are older and happiest are the ones that are still learning. 

Raise your glass of tequila (or your beverage of choice) and give me a "hell yeah!"
