Late Night Musings

     It is 10:36. That's actually pretty late, because I've been getting up at 7:00 all week. Let me tell you, getting up at 7:00 is THE stupidest habit ever. I hate it. I hate it. I hate it. I've been getting up at 6:45 on school days, and Mom and Dad decided to make a bedtime change. All of which adds up to me popping awake at 7:00. It makes me repeatedly mad.
     Anyway, I'm staying up tonight, and waiting for Aunt Carolyn. Tomorrow it's going to be a regular party at our house. Grandma came a few days ago, and today we went to Memphis to pick up Aunt Shayna. Three of my most favoritest people, all in the same house! =)
     Remember how I was complaining about wanting different books? Well I got them. :) Our first stop today was the libraryyyyy. :) I only read three of my books from our last trip (pathetic, I know), but I renewed three more of them. (Harry Potter #6, Nineteen Eighty-Four, The Beautiful and the Damned) Other than that, I got seven new books. And it was an amazing library trip. Maybe I'll do my habitual book stack post later on. ;)
     Ben's birthday is on the 8th, but we're going to celebrate tomorrow while everyone's here. He's going to be ten. Crazy.
     I read The Help, btw. It was really, really good. I should do a review, but I'm not sure I could. We just got the movie from Netflix, so I think we'll watch that sometime soon. I always like to read the book before I watch the movie. Because books are just plain better.
     *Yawn* I'm really kind of tired. But I'm hoping this will result in me sleeping in tomorrow. If I wake up at 7:00 tomorrow, I will probably kill something. *Shakes fist* Maybe only a fly or grass blade, though. I'm not very violent by nature.
      Speaking of which, I almost destroyed my houseplant yesterday. I knocked it out of my windowsill. *Sigh* I'm not very good with plants. I really do like gardens. But I hate gardening. I feel like I should love gardening, but I just plain don't.
     I am not going to use the word "random" in this post. I get so sick of that word. Even if it is very applicable. Wow. I just astounded myself with that word. Who knew "applicable" was in my vocabulary? Okay, okay. Never mind. I will freely admit that I live in a family of big-word-users.
     Look what I found on Pinterest . . . Aren't these amazing? I want a pair.

      Have any of you wondered about some of the "cool projects" on Pinterest? Like making your own cheerios? Who wants to make their own cheerios?! Not me! Well okay, maybe I didn't see a "make your own cheerios" pin. That was slight exaggeration. But there's some pretty crazy ones. I'm almost positive I saw a "make your own goldfish crackers" pin. In my opinion, there is a reason cereal and itsy-bitsy crackers are mass-produced. :p
     It's 11:12, and I think it's time for my random ramblings to end. Random Ramblings? No. That is becoming cliche. How about Late Night Musings?


  1. Late Night Musings! I like that. :)
    Have you heard this quote before?

    "Nighttime is really the best time to work. All the ideas are there to be yours because everyone else is asleep."
    ~Catherine O’Hara~

    1. It's true. I love the night.

  2. first, I CAN'T BELIEVE BEN IS GONNA BE 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He should still be 6!!! O___O I bet he's way taller.. :(
    Tell him happy birthday for me <3

    omigosh, those shoes are awesome, i totally agree with you about the word random, and waking up early..well i dont hate it as much as you do. but it can be pretty horrid. This week i have been waking up at 8:00. way early for me. then as soon as i noticed how early i have been waking up, i suddenly started sleeping in again...hm, maybe it was the weather:p
    we've had some outside pajama morning weather around here, if ya know wat i mean ;)

  3. ohoh, ps, i love the new header/banner watever u call it!!!!

  4. The 8th?? That's my birthday too! ^_^ Happy Birthday to him. :)

    Those shoes are so stinkin' kool. xD

    LOL! I know what you mean about waking up early when you want to sleep in. We *always* get up at 6:45 on school days and every Saturday morning I am wide awake at 7. I usually try to go back to sleep but it doesn't always work. yup. I feel your pain there.

    An' I love your header as well!! It is loverly.
