Forty is Just Another Number

Archive for April 2010

Greetings all!  It’s me!  Mel!  I’m baaaaaack!

Yeah, I know, I’ve said that before, but this time, I’ll be blogging with a purpose.

Yeah, I’ve said that too.  But this time I mean it.

Ok, shutting up now and getting to (drum roll please) the FRAGMENTS!

**Thing 1 has his first too-ba solo competition tomorrow.  He is so ready and I am so proud of him.  I can’t wait to see how he does.  I daresay I am as excited as he is!

**This is the first day in several months that I was actually looking forward to doing a blog post.  I think that means I’m ready to come back.  Not that I have much to say, mind you.  I actually do, but they aren’t fragments.  🙂

**I have a nest of baby squirrels in my back yard.  I found them while I was cleaning out the cactus bed.  Pretty smart mama squirrel, putting those babies in the middle of the cacti.  Now I’m all worried about them and hope that they will be ok.

**And I’ll close out today with a bumper sticker.  Actually, a description of a car.  Picture, if you will….a Ford Probe (remember those/).  And above the badge on the back, the owner painted the word “Anal”.  And all over the back are super racy suggestive bumper stickers.  But in the middle of the rear window, all by itself, and brand new by the way, was a sticker for the largest most conservative right wing church in Austin.

Thanks for stopping by!  I’ll try to come by your place soon.  If you are so inclined, my old digs are here:  Mel’s Colorful Metaphors.


Greetings world!


Yeah, it’s me again.  I know, the last two blogs didn’t work out so well.  But here I am to give this another try.  This time, I’m focusing on things I’m doing in these next eleven months to make forty not suck quite so bad.  This is just a starter post, I’ll have more later.

  • Kori: I am totally dying to know what the job is!
  • Unknown Mami: Probe? What a horrid name for a car.
  • Unknown Mami: Welcome to your new home. I'm turning 39 this year so reading about your journey will be particularly interesting.
