I Forget

Do you ever have something pop in your head for a post
Only you are not in a position to write it down?

That happens to me a lot.

Maybe I need to keep one of those little tape recorders handy.
Make little memos.

If I did that, I'd have post material for years.
The good ones.

Not the half-assed ones that come about when I can't think of anything truly spectacular.

So, I really have nothing awesome to say today.

I am going to make my second attempt at taking Kiddo to the orthodontist  this afternoon.
In a related story, I am still waiting for my money.

The guy that runs the shop turned it in, but heard nothing from them(surprise!).
Honeyman called this morning and he said he would credit us and than work on getting the money reimbursed to him.
We will see.

Anywhoo, I went out to the freezer to get some pumpkin to make a cheesecake and realized I have A LOT of pumpkin.

And this is from the volunteer pumpkin plant that grew in my ditch. Not sure how it got there- mouse or bird shit, take your pick.


  1. So, THAT'S why I ended up in a cornfield with my pants down!
    I forgot to write down that I didn't like being in cornfields with my pants down.

  2. Next time look for a tree or bush.

  3. Haha! I love the take your pick of shit ending. Thanks for the morning laugh! I think I tried commenting on this a couple days ago but was having problems with my internet connection. Glad I stopped back by. It made me laugh all over again. And, YES, you do have a buttload of pumpkin!

  4. I'd be eating pumpkin bread until it came out my ears. How's about trying to make some pumpkin ravioli? I've never had it, but I hear it's good with a butter sage sauce.

  5. I'm the exact same. My blog would be SO much better if I could only remember all the great ideas I have for posts. Lately, I find myself sitting down to write a post with no idea whatsoever what to write about!

  6. Jenn, I'm glad I could give you a laugh.

    Sue, I will have to look into that. That does sound good.

    Kara, Maybe that's why people really stop blogging. It's not that they had nothing more to say, they just kept forgetting what it was.

  7. The words in the comments are to small for my old person eyes to read :) I will be eating pumpkin pie in a few minutes here. Its been in the fridge for almost a hour now... I like mine cold.

    1. I know. It was fine until they changed the comments section. I am working on it.

  8. Pumpkin cheesecake was sounding so tasty until that last sentence. But my ever growing belly thanks you for that.
    Have a great weekend, Ruth.

    1. Robyn, If I gave up everything that was grown through shit, I don't know what I could eat.

  9. Sorry about the truck problems. Hope that's all straightened out soon. Pumpkin cheesecake...yummy yum!

    1. So do I Yvonne. Thanks. It turned out pretty good. It's good to see you.
