Midweek Musings 7/26…

Today is Wednesday.

It’s known as the third working day…the crest of the proverbial Hill when experiencing a rough week.

Usually upon reaching a Wednesday we think to ourselves, “It’s all downhill from here.  Just two more days till the weekend.”
Everyone around us echoes our thought with a Hallelujah and an Amen.

So, I will begin celebrating these extremely underrated humpdays with a bit of Creative Writing.
This Midweek Musing?  A Poem

Iphone to Ipod…

random thought of the day

Did you know that you can use a retired Iphone as an Ipod??

I did Not know this little tidbid of information. 😮

My mom had given me her old Iphone and wondered if I could use it for something.

I of course had no idea.  So I resolved to stick in a drawer or cupboard and forget about it till we moved to a new house and I cleaned everything out. 😉

I was at my Homeschool Group on Monday and one of the moms was talking about how her hubby had brought and old Iphone home from work and her kiddos were using it like an Ipod…my ears of course immediately perked up. 😀

Wait, What??  You can do that? ….Mind Blown!  😮

So, here I am tonight fussing with the thing, trying to get all of my mom’s pics off of it, resetting it to factory settings, and overall blowing my evening prepping the thing for one of the Randomkiddos. Lol 🙂

There you have it…another Random Thought of the Day…Iphones as Ipods…who woulda thunk it?  😀

When to read the Online Funnies…

random thought of the day

So, the other night/morning I was thinking…so just when IS the best time to read the Online Funnies??……because inquiring minds want to know…Okay, I wanted to know. Lol 😉

Soooo, here are My Top Reasons to read online comics at Two o’clock in the morning…the particular time of night/morning that I woke up. Oy 🙂

…You don’t mind scrolling through them all, you can’t sleep anyhoo.

…They upload faster at night cause there’s less web traffic.

…You really feel a connection with the characters when you are lacking sleep.

…They are easier to turn off than a Netflix movie.

…They can be enjoyed again the next day because of tired eye misreading.

And the top reason to read Online Comics at Two o’clock in the morning is…

…Comics are way more funny when you are ridiculously tired.

P.S.- What do you do when you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t sleep?

Happy Comic Reading! 😀

The Worry Train….

random thought of the day
Did you ever have a time when something teensy tiny happens in your life…
Something meaningless and any other time utterly forgettable….

Maybe you start having a mysterious pain you never had before or maybe your car starts acting a bit funny, or ….whatever.

It’s usually something small that you wouldn’t really dwell on too much, just shrug it off and move on.

Anyhoo, maybe you mention it to someone at work or it comes up in a conversation with your parents on the phone…Whatever the circumstance, you tell someone about it and they off handedly say… not really meaning anything bad at all…

You know you should Really get that checked out before it gets any worse.

Maybe you stepped on a Lego or something tiny poky and indiscernible at 3am in the morning


Out of the blue, whenever you make a right turn in your car it hesitates a bit…

Whatever the instance that starts the rock rolling and before you know it that small meaningless comment begins to bubble and brew and boil in your mind.

Now whenever that new small pain comes up, another small pain shows up along with it…. Forget about the fact that you played in that pick up basketball game the other day only you haven’t picked up a basketball in 5 years. :/


Now the car hesitates aaaand it had trouble starting in the morning…. Never mind the fact that it’s winter and 10 degrees outside and you don’t have a garage. :/

Your mind adds each new occurrence to the list of strange things that have happened lately and suddenly your mind turns into a worry machine.

….Well ya know, I should get the car looked at….But I don’t have money to do that right now…..On the other hand I could be blowing this way out of proportion…. But what if I’m not, and the car lets me sit somewhere in this cold weather. 😮


Well ya know I should probably see a doctor. I did have that strange pain the other day and now when I move my arms they hurt like the dickens. But I don’t have the money for a doctors appt right now. But if I wait, it could be something really bad…..I did step on that teensy mysterious thing the other day. And you know, now that I think about it all my probs started right after I stepped on that whatever it was! 😮 😮

Now I Know that I’m Not supposed to be ruled by fear. I’m a believer, a Christ follower, and the Bible is pretty clear on where the Lord stands on fear.

In fact when I’m feeling worried and a friend will say to me, So what does the Word say about that? … I know Exactly what it says~

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10

Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. …
Matthew 6:25-34

….. These are but a few of what I know the Bible says about the topic of fear and worry and how I should handle it.

Now I don’t want anyone to feel as if I’m pushing my beliefs on them.
I know everyone chooses to live their lives by the beat of their own drum.

That’s all way cool, I just choose to live my life by the beat of the Lords drum. Lol

But I do think Everyone everywhere struggles with getting on the worry train. The place where all of our fears run wild. :/
So if you are on the worry train, struggling with fear. Pull that emergency cord and get off the train. It’s as simple as that. 😮

So the next time you feel the worry train comin, make a choice.

Don’t get on the worry train. Let the worry train leave the station without you on it. 😀

The Bluemoon Thinker 🙂

P.S.- I’ve been struggling with getting on the worry train a lot lately.  :/  Hopefully sharing my struggles will help someone else out there in blogolog land stay off the worry train.

It is Most Def Not a fun ride. 😮 😉

Happy day with No worrytrain traveling.  😀

Sleep or rather Sleep-less-ness…

random thought of the day

I’ve been having a ton of trouble sleeping lately. I wake up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep.
I thought maybe I was dealing with insomnia, so I decided to look it up…

The perception or complaint of inadequate or poor-quality sleep due to a number of factors, such as difficulty falling asleep, waking up frequently during the night with difficulty returning to sleep, waking up too early in the morning, or unrefreshing sleep…

…Yup that is most definitely me.

Soooo, what do I do when I can’t sleep?
I get up and write….which probably doesn’t help me to go back to sleep, but whatevs. 🙂

Some of my best stuff comes to me late at night when I’m sleep deprived… Not sure why, but again with the whatevs. 🙂

So here I am at Dark-Thirty in the morning and typing away on the computer. I wouldn’t say this is my best stuff, but I just got up 10 minutes ago. 😉
I decided to take advantage of my sleeplessness and blog about it. Lol

Here’s to restful sleep and sooooooon…..Zzzzzzzzz.
Nope, just kiddin’. I’m still awake 😉

The Bluemoon Thinker 🙂

P.S.- Is someone out there in internet land also awake at Dark-Thirty in the morning? Anyone relate to my sleepless debacle and what do ya’ll do when you can’t sleep? Leave me a line or 16 in the box below.
…..Ooooo sleep deprived number typo….you know what? I’m gonna leave it that way, it looks good.

Happy Awakeness! 😀

Allergies, Allergies, Everywhere…

Random Thought of the Day 2

Allergies are normal part of every day life, right?  Our household is full of random allergies.

Allergies to peanuts, wheat, corn, night shade veg, most storebought cleaners, and the list goes on.  My favorite allergy, and I’m being sarcastic here, is the hidden allergy.  You know the one that hides in plain site as you amble along in life until, whammo!  Surprise, you’re allergic Aaaand reacting!  Oh, joy.

Havin’ one of those surprise, you’re allergic times today.  I ate at a Restaurant that we always eat at, you know that place where you’ve Never had a problem before. 😉

Well, I guess they started using something different in their cooking…you know that old line too…anyhoo, of course we didn’t put two and two together until we’d been eating the leftovers for two evenings!  Of course, typical of the sneak attack allergy.

You go around enjoying what you eat and then bam, it doesn’t like you anymore and that’s fine, cause the feeling is mutual bucko!

So, here I am on a perfectly wonderful Monday morning, when I should be working on school or I don’t know at least get a day in.  But no, I’m laying in bed with a pounding headache…you remember the Bugs Bunny cartoon with the kid with the hammer…”I wanna Easter Egg, I wanna Easter Egg.”…that’s me getting pounded on.

My face is hurting, cause of course my sinuses are puffy and the back of my head aches like Krazy!

Well, no more awesome food from that place anymore, thank you random cook for changing the way that you always made your recipes before. 😦

Back to eating at home for me….sigh.

Rushing Around for Nothing…

random thought of the day

Why do we rush around everywhere in life?

Sometimes I watch the ants and bees rushing around the yard collecting their various packages and bustling them back to their homes.  I wonder if we look like that too.  Rushing around here and there with our assortment of appointments, errands, and other engagements.

Last night I hustled my kiddos thru supper and into the car, drove in a hurry to attempt to arrive in time to the appointed meeting I was late for, only to find that no one else had been able to attend.  As we sat in the meeting room and waited to see if anyone else would show up, I realized that I wouldn’t have had to rush around like a ninny, barking orders like a drill sergeant, and driving like a slightly deranged Nascar driver.

So I made a decision.  I decided it was okay to loiter awhile at the library and look around for some books to borrow.  I chose to drive the long way home and not feel pressured to get home as fast as possible.  Once we arrived home, I chose to take the time to curl up with one of those borrowed books and while the evening away delving into the realm of my imagination.

From now on when I find myself bustling around and feeling agitated, I’m going to remind myself to slow down and enjoy the journey not just the arrival to my destination.
