3 of Lana's Life-isms



There are a few random ideas I just feel a need to share with you today.  Call them Pet Peeves, Myth busters, or just plain ol' sayings I take issue with.  You'll see as we go down the page together.

3 Lana Life-isms


1.  I'm not sure that's something to be happy about.  (or about which to be proud for all you grammar purists out there!)  It's been my experience with babies that some are quite difficult to get to sleep, and they tend to wake up many times during the night.  If you want to say you had a great night of sleep, say, "I slept like a tween or teenager last night!"  I can't begin to count the number of alarm clocks that are in both girls' rooms THAT DON'T DO SQUAT to wake up our Sleeping Beauties, and we are fresh out of Prince Charmings to give them that special wake up kiss... Miss Bear had her head about six inches from a blaring music alarm and was still out like a rock.  Miss K does the same thing, or her alarm wakes her up, but she just shuts it off and goes right back to sleep. To make matters worse, they both sleep upstairs, and we are on the ground floor.  That means there is a great deal of VERY loud conversations going up and landing on mostly deaf ears (they both have window air conditioners running on high at the moment).  Tall Guy is just about to the point that if they don't get up in time to make the bus, they will stay home and work with him ALL DAY!

2.  Well Mr. Franklin, that's all well and good, but the pain in my knee is NOT gaining me anything but weight!  I was so fired up to come home from vacation and hit the walking trail and exercise road, but my left knee put the kabosh on those great plans.  Not exactly sure what is wrong with it, but we have several possibilities including bone spurs, cartilage in the inner portion of my left knee wearing thin, or a torn meniscus.  Went to an orthopedic doctor yesterday, and he gave me a steroid shot in hopes it will allow me to climb up the combine this harvest. It hurts too much to cross my legs, so cross yours and your fingers that this gets me through harvest.

3.  With the sleep or wake up issues and knee issues here, I'm just about ready to make a big ol' batch of cookies, and you know what's going to happen to some of that dough?  Yep, it's never going to see the inside of the oven.  I LOVE chocolate chip cookie dough with just half the flour added to it the best... Oh.My.Goodness!!!!!  And I will swear on my 30+ year old version of Shakespeare's Complete Collection of Writings that I have NEVER been sick from eating cookie dough. All those big hulking guys used to put raw eggs in their morning drinks to make them big and strong! They were the pictures of health.  I really think that some mom somewhere just got tired of making up cookie dough, going out to hang clothes on the clothes line, and coming back into the kitchen to a half empty bowl of dough and two kids running out the other door.  Now if you eat too much of it or anything, that can make you sick, but I say eat your dough if it makes you happy (and probably a bit fluffy!). A cold glass of milk makes it even better!

Ok, I'll let all these wonderful words of wisdom settle with your morning coffee.  I will be back later, though, to share more ponderings.  They will probably have the theme of reading and following signs while driving through road construction, or how to use sarcasm to stem your road rage.  Until next time, I will leave you with a few writing prompts to fill my comment box. It does get lonely!  Believe me, I will read each and every one of your answers.
