My One Hundredth Post for the Year

I made 100 posts!!  Not bad for a comeback and it's not halfway through the year yet!  I'm trying for 100 random thoughts, so this post may actually not post until tomorrow... and may not have 100 thoughts ...

1. Really glad Curt and I met a second time - and the second time it stuck.

2. Very proud of the person the Angie has turned out to be.

3. I wish my brother lived on this side of the continent.

4. I worry about how Christopher is going to turn out.

5. Curt turns 50 this fall, if I throw him an evil birthday party he will have a year to plot his revenge... well 51 weeks anyway.

6.  I'm totally beating my mom and father in law on the gardening front.

7.  It's Braun's Day!!

8.  I hate summer... it's too freakin hot!

9.  I must really find a way to make amends to the sports gods.. they are KILLING me!

10. It's been "forever" since I've had brunch with Grace.

11. I hope Felix likes the Christmas pressie I got him (yes I have one Christmas present purchased!!)

12. I wish I could get Curt to tell me why he's in such a funk lately.

13. I wonder if the post will be too long if I throw pictures with some of these thoughts.. I could use little ones..

14. I'm going to have to help Fred this week.

15. I want to finish the giraffe this week, elbow be damned!

16. I want to finish the Benjamin sweater this month! 

17. I have special edition yarn "Live Long and Prosper" in sock and sport weight.  I am really itching to cast at least one on - but need a pattern.

18.  Looked at a preview of this post at 17 thoughts - definitely not enough room for pictures ... may need to go with smaller font.

19. The only redeeming quality Don has is he shows up for work, and that can go both ways - he irritates the hell out of me when he's there.

20. Why is there a yield to giraffe sign somewhere in Norway??

21. Too much rain last week has some of the leaves on my plants turning yellow.

22. I need to remember to add some epsom salts to my tomatoes and peppers tomorrow.

23. Can't believe I have to help the Angie move again...

24. The 24th is my brother's birthday.. also the birthday of John T.. most useless human ever.

25. If I had telekinesis I would mostly use it to refill my coffee mug.

26. And drop heavy things on Don and John T.

27. Why do I attract crazy people?

28. I'm hungry

29. Self washing clothes should be a thing... but I guess teflon wouldn't breathe in the summer.

34. Had to fill out a district court juror survey.  This doesn't bode well.

35. There are some geocaches listed for my town, if it doesn't rain maybe I'll try to find one instead of run later.

36. These cubital stretches make my whole forearm sore.

37. I ordered a sippy cup for my nephew... he's past 2 for heaven's sake!!

39. I have to prune my houseplants

40.  I always feel bad pruning my houseplants.

65. If it's currently 93 degrees - how can today's high still be posted as 87?

86. I'm thinking, Curt, me, hotel room with room service.. make him walk funny...

    I think Gustavo is a fine name for an Argentinian cowboy. I can also consult my Puerto Rican doctor, who is married to a Guatamalan man for other names, if you would like.

    I NOW HAVE A CAST IRON PAN, thanks to a super awesome friend!

    Fe is super excited about his present!!!! (His mom has already bought four Christmas presents, which means she's about 1/4 done, fyi)

    Summer is THE WORST. Can we move somewhere else together in our next life? Please?

  2. i really don't mind summer, I am not crazy but I wound up your friend, I do have a cast iron pan, yes two years old is too old to be just starting a sippy cup. I worry about him too, Tom is also in a funk and I worry about him and us in the process. I did read every one of your 100 thoughts. And I laughed at 69 too!
