A Little This, A Little That

Geezo, peezo. I move over to this brand-spankin’ new blog and then I don’t post anything. What’s up with that? I don’t really have anything to write about so I’ll just go random here.


I’m tired of hot weather. I wish it was fall.


Todd and I are watching “Purple Rain”. Why? I have no idea. Other than it’s a little nostalgic for us. We saw it the first summer we dated in 1984. The next day I came down with the flu. I don’t believe there’s a connection, but if I end up really sick tomorrow we’ll know why.


I’m done with summer.


Taylor and Katie were in the worship band last night at church, Taylor’s last time before leaving for school. I taped it with our Sony Handycam and I can’t download it to the computer because the software is outdated. We bought it in 2005! I spent a few hours last night getting an online update from Sony and doing everything they told me to do and it still doesn’t work. Eventually we’ll get it figured out (“we’ll” as in Todd) and I’ll be able to download (or is that upload) the video and you’ll be able to watch. They’re awesome. Of course, I’m a little very biased.


Fallish weather would be nice.


Speaking of Taylor, we drive him to college on Saturday. I’m not thinking about the coming home without him part. I choose to think of it as a road trip, complete with car snacks and a stop at Cracker Barrel.


I’m ready for fall.


Preschool starts in a few weeks which means we’re in gear up mode at work. I’m a little concerned because I’m not concerned. Know what I mean? 


Did I mention I wish it was fall?


Purple Rain is over and now we’re watching Journey in concert. The new Journey with the new singer. He sounds eerily just like Steve Perry! He’s also very thin and has long dark hair so if you squint he even looks like Steve Perry. Freaky!


I hear thunder rumbling outside. Mayhap that means fall is coming!

    I love all the bits and pieces! Glad to see you up and blogging again… how are you liking WordPress?

    Also, we have another platernal trait! I have also blogged about Purple Rain.

    See? we’re practically twins!

    Amber – the similarities simply boggle! And I’m liking WordPress. 🙂

    Phoebe – Amen!

    Welcome to the neighborhood! I’m ready for fall, too, except I don’t really have a fall wardrobe because I don’t enjoy shopping.
