I must admit that I’m not really sure what to write about, mainly because winter just hasn’t been that…”wintery” this week. Not that I’m complaining! I have,mostly, no issues with a warmer week. On Wednesday it was 57, 57!, and it felt ah-mazing outside! I opened some windows, the kids got to play outside, absolutely fabulous day! However (comma) when one has a blog entitled “Winter and the Texan” it helps to be given some material in which to work with. So I thought, and I thought, while listening to my tunes which mainly consists of Breaking Benjamin songs, my favorite two are “Failure” and “Give Me A Sign”. I couldn’t really come with anything clever or terribly humorous, so I figured I would just write what ever came to mind.
So, here goes nothing.
This week was a pretty good week, I made a 97 on that Peter the Great power point I told you about; now I only have four classes to go until graduation. Yippee!! The kids didn’t have any school last week, they got to enjoy this awesome week long winter break thing, that I didn’t get when I was in school. What’s up with that? They got a lot of extra play time and game time and TV time, big bummer was their chalk drawings got washed away almost everyday because of this chorus line of rain showers we had roll through last week. At least they didn’t mind redrawing their lovely creations…too much.
Umm. Hmm. Oh, I got to go to the DMV this morning, which was super duper fun!
No it wasn’t actually. The line was already crazy long when I got there, which was like thirty minutes after they opened, it snaked around the room in the big “J” shape. But I decided to check with the information desk first to make sure I had everything I needed. Thankfully that line wasn’t too long, although I did have to stand in front of this dude that did not smell good. Yeah..Once I got up there I found out that my husband had to be there too, because both of our names are on the papers and stuff. Which you know…its fine, and stuff.. The good news is, I snagged some awesome deals at Kohls, so all in all not a bad morning!
Umm..lets see. I found a great recipe for gluten free banana bread on Pinterest. It was so good and super moist! Just search for “gluten free banana bread” it should be one of first ones to show up, the pin has four pictures, and is from a blog called “Gimme Delicious”. Oh! I did hear on the radio that its supposed to snow on Thursday and then drop into the 20s on Friday and Saturday. Boo.. Welp, in the meantime I’ll be enjoying a couple more days where I don’t have to put on my entire closet just go outside or have to scrape snow off of our dog’s legs when ever he comes back inside.
Well there you have it, I have just proven that just because you don’t have any ideas doesn’t mean you can’t write….something. But then again the key to writing is simply doing it, no matter what, and may even turn out better than you might expect. Excuses can pile on faster than we may realize until that’s all you can see. So what ever it is that you are working on, striving for, hoping for, keep going; because you’ll only (truly) fail if you stop.
Until next time,
Oops, I almost forgot to add a picture of Sebastian Stan, that’s pretty much become standard for “Winter and the Texan”. Hold on here’s one, its not a new one, but it is my favorite; and pretty close to the face I made while listening to the weather forecast on the radio this morning.
