Funny Friday #1 2016

I realized that I was missing something lately. You know what it was? Blogging! I like to write and challenge myself in writing creatively, but mainly so it doesn’t clog my brain! I really do enjoy writing, but after so long it seems like I couldn’t come up with anything to really spark my creativity. I decided to do some searching. One way I found was to join a challenge in order to get some creativity going again. Naturally, I found a group on FB and I joined. This group provides monthly challenges and I am now par-taking my first one called “Funny Friday!”

Today’s post is called Funny Friday, a regular post that is done on the last Friday of every month with this group. It is collaborative too! Each month someone provides a picture and all of us have to write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that picture.

Today’s picture was submitted by Dinosaur Superhero Mommy

Here goes nothing – my first funny friday!

29 - Dinosaur Superhero Mommy - June 2016, funny friday

“I didn’t do it
.” ( My oldest would definitely say this one)

“You won’t believe what you can find under all of this!”

“There was a dog and a cat, but they are gone now.”

I found myself self saying “If you back out slowly and shut the door maybe it will fix itself.”

“Um. What, happened?” is another parental response I might have with a look of disbelief.

Random Stuff

Random stuff for you here….

Tomorrow is Friday, but today felt more like a Friday to me than a Thursday.

December 9th is coming fast.

December 5th is coming faster.

Trying to plan my next race isn’t as easy as it sounds.

I feel like I could use a coffee right now.

It is 8:12 pm.

Sales goals aren’t going to make themselves.

I love the ability to come up with a campaign that makes a client happy, and is fun to present.

I think I need to go stroll the aisles of an office supply store.

Stationary and pens make me happy.

My kids have tomorrow off, yet I still have to go to work.

I have a chocolate party tomorrow, book party, kids party, and a potential spa party between tomorrow and Saturday.

I am going to be busy.

I am going to miss Alaska.

I admit it.

I can’t wait for the beach.

I can’t wait to sweat.

I think this is all I have for now.

Not much – but it is something.

Holiday Thoughts

Holiday thoughts – are you ready?

So many things are going on – Christmas programs, holiday parties, secret santa exchanges, oh my!

This is fun – I think, but it makes me believe that there is so much more to it. I mean we give gifts to those that have no needs, but lots of wants. Is that really any fun? People who have more than they could ever think of obsessing over what is newer, bigger, better, brighter.

I am kind of tired of it.  What if we all just didn’t buy for those who had no wants but only needs?  What is we all bought for those who had needs and we could provide a bit of comfort with something that is not even thought about to us?

Blessing bags are something I had started to hear more about this year. I had honestly never heard of them before.  A bag filled with things that people could use for everyday things.




This year I am going to get some of these together and have my kids go with me to hand these out at the bus stops. I might even just take a crate and put it on a park bench for people to take.

We are gathering jewelry that has been on clearance and it still good looking and we are taking it to a foundation here in town that supports victims of domestic violence and helps them get back on their feet.

We are going to bake cookies and hand them out to people who are in line for dinner at the food bank.

I am also going to take the good toys my kids don’t play with because they are blessed with too much and provide them to people who don’t have anything. Notice I said the good toys –  I won’t give them crap because that is an awful thing to do.

I also promise that next year, I will grab toys all year long as they are on clearance for those that are in need next year. We will make sure that we will do our part to keep people on our mind – other than ourselves, and Christ in our hearts.

What are your thoughts this Christmas?
