Caffeinated Randomness: Weary Wanderer longs for her Mundane Life

After two weeks of wandering on various pseudo vacations....a trip on business with my Loverbrains and a trip to visit my folks and celebrate our Half-versary...I'm surprised to discover that I've missed my little mundane life. HA!

Okay, saying I missed mountains of laundry might be a slight stretch. And, on a random laundry sidenote...why is it that on laundry day everyone (including yourself) has clothing accidents (spills, stains, etc.) and you feel like laundry is just a futile task all together. Does that happen to anyone else?

We are critter sitting for some friends. In addition two our two Anoles (Guacamole and Canole)...we now are watching their lone Anole (BOB) and two awesome blue dart frogs. They eat wingless fruitflies ya'll. Too fun!! Last night I fed Anoles...and as I was gathering their crickets...one escaped. Oh, if ya'll could've been flies on my wall...you would have been laughing yourselves silly. Well, and if you were a fly and saw how I caught that cricket (smack) you might have gotten yourself outta there quick!

Loverbrains comes home for the weekend...to mow our jungle and spend some time with us before heading out into the REAL jungle again. We are excitedly planning Father's Day! I'm feeling slightly irritated that it snuck up on me and the stuff I'm mailing won't get to Grandpas and Papa until after the date. Same thing happened to me with Mother's Day. I do REMEMBER before the date...just not THAT far ahead. *sigh*...is this one of those after 30 things? Of all the things I've ever lost, I miss my mind the most.

Okay, on my final random note of the day...being a total bookworm (like I probably should get professional help for this addiction, haha)...I was wondering if any other bookworms out there had ever felt like they'd like to sit down with various favorite authors and SHAKE THEM UNTIL THEY REVEAL THE REST OF THE STORY!!!??? I mean, it's just there in their heads somewhere, right? And they are WITHHOLDING IT from us and only giving it to us in small marketable chunks! *sigh*...I'm reading Jacqueline Winspear's latest "The Mapping of Love and Death." It's her Maisie Dobb's series....oh, how I love it! And, should she shockingly stumble over my blog "Don't worry Jacqueline...I would never literally shake you...but I'd sure love to butter you up and see what you'd share with me! "

Hope all you chiccies have a great weekend. Go make yourselves a lovely iced coffee and relax! Love to yas!!

I get that way when traveling, too -- somehow everyday normal life sounds nice and cozy.

I do the same thing with knowing that special days are coming but then still having them sneak up on me and not getting cards and gifts out in time. I just ordered something online for my step-father this week to be sent directly to him and thought I had just made it, but got an e-mail that the item had shipped but wouldn't get there til July 6th! I guess I should have looked to see where the company was located!

Glad you are back!

And don't feel bad - I don't have anything planned at all for my poor husband because we are going to his mom's for the weekend. Epic fail!!

That drink looks amazing! Did you make it? Babysitting frogs? That funny :}My boys would love it!

I am always so late on getting gifts out to people and I'm like you - I DO remember just not in enough time...Ack...

And yes, I would often like to shake an author to reveal the story - almost weekly I feel this!!!

Lastly, laundry? Has a stronghold on my life. I detest it.

Hope you have a great weekend, Bobbi!

Where did you get that drink? I'm coveting it right now. Don't worry about not getting anything for father's day. I didn't, because my hubby is buying himself a new wipper snipper. His broke and now we need a new one. He doesn't do "Hallmark" holidays anyway so I get out of this one.

I remember a frog my youngest son had when he was a child...mom had to feed it...AND catch the food...as a grown man...this boy still won't touch bugs...so you KNOW what his brothers always do....
