Another Day Another Ramble

This morning started bright and early. Well not so bright since it was still dark at 4 am. Scott had the heater on and I felt like I was suffocating from the heat. 

Of course after he left and the heater was off I was wide awake for awhile. I grabbed my phone and popped on Facebook for a few minutes and saw that my neighbor behind me passed away yesterday. So sad! I'm friends with her daughter and my kids have played with all her grandkids so they were all very upset to find out that she passed away also. I'm pretty sure she died from complications of diabetes that she has had for the whole time I've known her. 

With so many people I know sick and dying it really raises my awareness of my own mortality. Sure we know that we are all going to die some day but maybe that's going to be tomorrow. Or by Christmas. Or not until I'm 90. Not to be morbid or anything but just stuff floating around in my head. It's too bad we can't all just live without responsibilities and live each day like we would want to live our last. 

Eventually I dozed back off to sleep and then of course hit the snooze button for the next half an hour before dragging myself out of bed to get ready for work.

Ahhh work. Home away from home. Everyone is so bogged with stuff to do that one of my co-workers actually went and hid in an empty office for an hour or so so that he could catch up on work without having to go up to the counter or answer phone calls. Of course a lot of the work he did then got transferred to my desk. I'm starting to have a wall of files around me. Some day they will update our computer system and bring back 2014 so we can go on with our lives. 

It's actually storming and raining right now. It needs to rain for like a month or two because we are in a major drought right now.  One of our favorite swimming holes is going to be closed this summer because there is no water. Of course it's raining because we are having a birthday party on Sunday. I just need to plan one for every weekend and we'll be out of a drought in no time. 

Trevor turns 11 on Friday. I can't believe he's that old already. He's definitely starting to look more like an older kid and less like a little one. He's requested "meatloaf" and "ribs" for his family party on Sunday. Should be interesting haha. Guess I'll be cooking!

I sat down here on the computer to look for some dinner ideas and to make a grocery shopping list. It was taking so long Scott is picking up dinner for us all and then I'll go grocery shopping. 

I feel like I go to the grocery store every other day and we never have food. Must be the sign that I have teenagers. Or almost all teenagers.

I'm so glad you're getting rain!
If I wash my car it will rain - every time. You may want to try that. :-)

I'm making stuffed peppers tonight with quinoa instead of rice. Yummy, fast and easy. Wanna join me?
