A Few Things

So, I am stuck in a hotel room in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

I am having technical difficulties posting a blog on my ipad. Feeling a little lost.

Went to my mom's house to take care of some stuff. Ugh.

Walked inside, became overhwelmed. A familiar feeling of "I wish it was easier for her" (and us) washed over me. Wash is too calm of an was more like a pounding.

Every inch of my mother's house is filled with stuff---silk flowers, QVC boxes, Christmas presents for my children, pictures of my sister, my brother and me over the years, an ashtray full of half-smoked Capri cigarettes, and more. So much more.

Right now I am overwhelmed and frustrated with life and technology.

But I am thankful for screw tops on cheap wine bottles. Right now I am drinnking a wine called Flip Flop, which makes me smile.

I am thankful for old friends. I had a most wonderful experience tonight that I will write about when my formatting works. But it's good.

I am thankful for Pandora and my Avett Brothers channel.

I am thankful for alone time. Feels good to have a few minutes to breathe and think things through without all my amazingly cute little distractions. (insert picture of cute family if technology wasn't screwing me right now)

I am thankful for 30 Rock syndication. (insert clip of show if well, you get it)

I apolgoize for the lame post.
Now off to finish my sophisticated bottle of Flip Flop Merlot and watch more 30 Rock.

The above was written last night...I am not drinking Flip Flop wine this morning, yet. I just woke up startled and confused. Something happened that hasn't happened in 10 years. I got eight hours of sleep. Eight straight hours of sleep. (insert pic of a very happy me if technology...well you know)
