A Little Homesick...

Or home and a little sick?

I don't really have anything delightful to squeeze out of my own gray matter for you today.. I'm a bit under the weather today and have a crappy headache. I'm working on reading, but can't seem to get into anything.. I have books I haven't read sitting on my shelf, but each time I start one I end up just trading for another.. *sigh*. Perhaps I should read a graphic novel instead. Those are easier.. I have a couple of Catwoman books waiting, and the latest issue of Walking Dead.. And now I'm boring you all with totally random rambling.. It's 60 degrees and sunny today and my body wants nothing to do with outdoor activity. How sad. And my poor children have a mother who can't keep up with the laundry well enough to be willing to let them go enjoy the sunshine and slather themselves with mud. Because out there? everything. is. mud.

Mud is something we didn't have a lot of in California. I mean sure.. we had 'mud'. But not like Iowa mud. Iowa has mud. Like deep, sticky, lose your boot in it mud. I'm not up for it today. Sorry kids. At least we might have some snow by the end of the week.. What a crazy state we live in.. I just love global warming.

Wow, my writing is crap today.. I guess it's a good thing I can't focus enough to work on my book (not the one I submitted.. I started another one last week..). If I did work on it, I might have to later delete anything I produced today.

Speaking of California.. my good buddy Evan brought my attention to a lovely tribute to Trader Joe's over at Laughing Squid. Hence the touch of home sickness. I heart Trader Joe's. I did ALL of my grocery shopping there when we lived in Folsom. They were awesome. Affordable. Healthy. Natural. Unique.. aaahh... I wish they'd add one here in Des Moines. I know it would be a big hit.

So, I'll shut up now.

It's muddy as hell here today!! Actually, my kid's bus got stuck in the mud and he was almost 45 minutes late getting home. I hate mud!!!

Well thank you, now I finally know what Trader Joe's is. Seriously, I've heard it mentioned like a million times but I didn't know. We don't have them here.

I'm feelin' it, kiddo. Sorry about the mud and the mindfunk. (say that carefully!)

I'm so down in it, I was about to break out Tool and start screaming "Eulogy" at the top of my lungs.

Winter, begone.

You should know that the nearest Trader Joe's to me is in Vegas. We frequently plan weekend trips down there with the only reason being In-n-Out Burger and Trader Joes. Ah, yes, the dried mangos are to die for. And the alphabet cinnamon cookies? Forget about it!

Bleh! Mud is the worst thing ever! And I'm one of those crazies who denies all this CO2 nonsense. Here in Texas, we always have crazy boomerang weather, one day the low is 28* and then a couple days later it's 75*... So annoying!

Sorry 'bout the headache. Hope is wears off soon. Graphic novels? Catwoman? Your cool points just another 10 digits!

That Trader Joe's song was HILARIOUS. We have them all over here in California... thanks for sharing that, haha.
