Day 89: Things I Sometimes Love

Things I Sometimes Love

Earplugs

If I stuff earplugs too far in they hurt and at night they squish and press against my ear and the pillow but they allow me to stay in the same bed with my husband.

***

Supplements

I could have gone on several cruise ship vacations for the same price I paid for my supplements but they keep me moving.

***

Clean Clothes

There is always a pile of laundry staring at me from the corner of the living room but usually no one in my family stinks.

***

Waking up my Youngest

He is sleeping so soundly, so soft and warm and cuddly, but after he wakes up he says cool stuff like: “Mom, guess what? I just peed, burped, and sneezed all at the same time!”

***

Lab Tests

They induce panic attacks and sleepless nights, and often lead to more supplements, but they provide vital information.

***

My Dog (Spastic Colon)

I often wake up to surprises she has left me in all forms but I Β laugh when she eats my underwear and wags her tail so super fast her little butt shakes.

***

Documentaries

They make me over think and conjure up dread but knowledge is power.

***

Washington State

Yes, it rains and rains, and there are tons of spiders, but the greenery and scenery are Β pure heaven.

***

My China Doll

I have had her since I was twelve and I think she is haunted with my spirit, so I am afraid to move her, get rid of her, or hide her in a dark closet, but she makes for interesting conversation.

***

Dark Organic Chocolate with Espresso Coffee Chips

Need I say more?

***

Tiny Black Ants

They are overtaking my kitchen but they also carry away crumbs.

***

My Little Brain

My brain barks, begs, and beckons to be heard but I live in a state of constant entertainment and fascination.

***

What are some things you sometimes love?

  1. πŸ˜† superb list Sam πŸ˜†
    hey i used to have a doll like that but now she looks possesed and seed of chucky kind ..well not that bad but am sure her soul is dark and evil….
    Laundry is not a good thing but we got to do the dirty job πŸ˜‰
    hugs n love πŸ™‚

  2. Let me see, things I sometimes love: 1) weeds to be pulled in the garden (they make me feel useful on days that I otherwise don’t), 2) definitely anything chocolate (dark, milk, white, doesn’t matter), 3) having my 20-year-old daughter home from college call me “Daddy” (it takes me back in time), 4) northwestern Washington (where I was born and have fond early life memories), and 5) this new adventure of blogging (even though I still don’t quite know what I’m doing)! That’s my short list. With more time, I’m sure I would come up with more. I too like ear plugs, clean clothes, and come to think of it, the smell of clean sheets on the bed.

  3. Oh, great list! Weeds—I do like that feeling of plucking them out, how the dirt clings to the roots. Chocolate! “Daddy”—love that. WA πŸ™‚
    Yes, blogging is definitely a “sometimes” thing. Thanks so much for sharing. πŸ™‚ Sam

  5. Even the knocked over garbage looks “clean”, ya know?! Your son’s little head peeping out is adorable!! What’s more to say about the chocolate – well, personally I would put THAT on my ALWAYS LOVE list! Creepy doll – would totally freak me out and reminds me of the movie Magic with Anthony Hopkins (even though it is not a ventriloquist dummy). Oh, yes, and I’m glad the laundry is clean and your family is not ‘stinky’ – lol! πŸ˜‰

    1. It was our recycle garbage, luckily. I tell you…you’ve got that acute attention to details. You could be a lady detective. I love, love, love chocolate, but don’t like what it does to my mind and body — hyper thoughts, hyper movements, and itchy skin. 😦 Such is the price I pay. However, if I want to get a good house cleaning in, I do indulge on the chocolate. Creepy doll!!! Thanks for the comment. I’m glad we’re not stinky, too. Are you? πŸ˜‰ lol

  6. L O L…thanks again for sharing, Sam! πŸ™‚ love the doll…love ’em all…you’re 1 terrific Mom! don’t know how you do it, Sam! πŸ™‚ love and hugs to you! πŸ™‚

  7. Oh, you! I am so tired and overwhelmed but you still bring a smile to my self-pity face!

    “They are overtaking my kitchen but they also carry away crumbs.”

    Oh, Hah! My mom and her ants! She’s never spray for them and I have long suspected that they were part of her cleaning crew! so funny to see hear. Thank you for such a funny post with great visuals! πŸ™‚

    1. I’m tired and overwhelmed today. Must be in the air! But your comment made me smile big time. Always love to have your energy on my blog.
      Yes, I’m having a hard time with those ants. I can’t spray…and won’t let my husband spray. He is such a patient man. Meanwhile my kids think I’m bonkers.
      I’m glad you liked the post. I had a lot of fun putting that one together, and my intention was to bring a smile to people’s faces. What are things that you sometimes love??? Big Hugs! πŸ™‚ Sam

  8. Sam, with your spastic colon photo, I laughed because we just adopted an 18 mos. old chocolate lab (now 19 mos old). He’s still a puppy and loves plastic. Oh, how naive we were after having our Lucky Girl so long and she was almost 11. Perfect, you know? Then we bring home a dog who is part Grizzly, Croc and horse! Anyway, in addition to my new lovable puppy, my list would also include any kind of chocolate, pulling weeds are in progress, dinner when the whole family is together, clean clothes are also good, time in the mountains, a good dog walk, camping and vanilla lattes! πŸ™‚ this was really a fun post, thanks so much! xo

  9. Yes, I know. Our last dog of 6 years, Scooby, he was that perfect angel type…so I know. Our Spastic gal, OMGosh, what a spazzz. Love the combo of Grizzly, Croc, and horse…lol! I can totally picture that.
    Love your list. Now I’m craving a latte! Thank you for stopping by and commenting. πŸ™‚ Hugs, Sam

  10. Wow! Too many things for me to comment on! I have to get busy this morning since I have been glued to your blog for like an hour catching up. I will only pick two.

    Documentaries! YES! YEA! LOVE!

    China Doll! Aaaaaaaahhhhh!! Me no likey! I am not too frightened of the evil forces that may play around different unattainable quantum’s in our universe, BUT I am afraid of China dolls! And any sort of creepy-glassed-eyed-freaky-haired-stoic-(or smiling)non-moving doll that stares at me no matter where I am at in the room! I know they plot and plan evil deeds waiting to take over the world! I am not making it up! Look!

    Lol!

    1. Hee, hee. You are so grand. Love your energy, free spirit and outlook on life. You always shine bright and spread love, Sweet Angel. πŸ™‚
