tonight I wish for a few of things...not enough things for a full 365Grace post...

I wish for an amazing night's sleep like I had last night.
I wish for an amazing morning like I did this morning.
I wish that when I wake from said amazing sleep, my neck will not hurt in a fashion similar to how it doesn't hurt right now.

Christmas Lights and Gray Hairs

I've been driving around for a few nights and noticing some things about the Christmas lights in my area. There are rules about lights, ya know. What I've been seeing is that some of these rules are being broken...quite awfully, no less.

Let's talk about the rules and we'll see if you know what I'm talking about.

1. Icicle lights...I'm pretty sure these should be outlawed. I've only seen them on one house that made me stop and say, "wow, that's actually pretty" and those were blue and white teeny tiny lights hung under the facia so it was clean looking from the street. That, and the blue and white tiny lights carried through the entire theme of the house's decoration. Nothing about the house didn't fit in with the rest of it. Next rule...

2. Lawn Ornaments - These are just weird. Often, there's a porportion issue. The animals are the same size as the crazy blow up penguin or half the size of the teeny spiraly lighted tree. Lawn ornaments appear to me, to be more of a statement of the homeowner that indicates the level of cash they're willing to drop for the beasts. Oh, and there's always somebody in town that'll throw one deer on the back side of another deer therein causing the small children in the car to inquire what those deer are doing.

3. Blanket lights - Not okay. Especially not okay if you need to trim your hedge.

4. Single row of lights running along the roof line of the house without symmetry or without control. You know what I'm talking about here. Multicolored lights without a pattern. Or one where the pattern is clearly intended, but there's a break down somewhere and the pattern gets out of whack. Red, Green, Red, Green, Red, Red, Green. People? You can fix that. It's worth fixing. Or when the lights are dangly but should be tight? Your house wants to look good. Go ahead. Give those last 15 minutes of effort to tighten them up.

I know there are more rules about Christmas lights, but those are the ones I'm recalling right now.

Onto the gray hair news...I think I've found one on my head. My sister found her first during high school, but my grandma on my mom's side didn't get gray hair until she was like 70 or something. I don't think my mom has any grays. I don't think I'm particularly ripped up about it, but it's notable at least. It might just be a blonde hair that's growing out from my last color. Time will tell.


I'll be okay. No really. It's a natural part of life.

Although, it's almost enough to convince me to go back to my natural color instead of continuing to dye my hair to match my eyebrows.

More grace

1. Excitement to get back to my workouts
2. T-shirts that don't mind tears and snot
3. Friends that show up completely unexpectedly
4. 12 hour Sudafed and CVS being open late
5. Puppy kisses

day 2

  • Squatting 5 lbs more than my body weight and the endorphins this little activity affords my brain.
  • Heat packs and warm water that help to ease my muscles and lubricate my insides.
  • Carmex - I'm using it a bit oddly, but it's really doing the trick on my new heel cracks
  • Clean boys that bathe themselves
  • Nearly normal poop - One day, it'll be 100% normal again and I'll be a happy girl with happy insides.

Grace - 365

The idea here is to post 5 things every day that have graced your life. Hmm...I didn't exactly ROCK NaBloPoMo, but I'm willing to have at least the start of an idea of something to post. I hope that at some point, duplicates are acceptable. Well, I'm the boss of this blog, so for me, they are. I'll try to make sure and put the badge up whenever it's one of these here, qualifying posts.
1. Sleep. Sometimes, it's hard to come by. Sometimes, it's available in abundance. I love it no matter the mechanism required for me to obtain some.
2. The soft snuggly skin on Mini's neck when he's asleep next to me.
3. Getting all my laundry done - washed, dried, folded, and put away - in one unexpected evening.
4. Grammar. 'nuf sed.
5. My son's teachers who encourage me to believe that someday, he just might grow to be a good, albeit sensitive, man.
