think tock tick, tock tick think

I like lists. For whatever reason, it seems as though sarcasm is better rendered when in the form of a list. Plus, I don't have anything of high artistic merit to offer you today, just my thoughts. So, here we go:

--I don't like dishwashers. I'm listening to the sound of the dishwasher right now (I didn't start it), half-cleaning the dishes. Blame it on my Southern family, blame it on my upbringing, but I hate the dishwasher, and I tend to view people differently when they use one. Just saying. Though I don't like standing on my feet to wash dishes, I do it. And my mother does it. So does my grandmother. So will my children.

--Best text from Sunday: Happy (early) Mother's Day! One day you will deserve this day so much because you are the best! (that's why I love him so much :)

--I have absolutely no patience for dumb things, dumb comments, rude people, rude children, etc. I don't know if it's just because working with kids for 5 years has reduced my patience, or because as I age, I'm turning into my father.

--I want to move to the L.A.-ish area and become a runner with taut muscles like an Eric Jerome Dickey character. (One from Between Lovers or previous novels only, please.)

--I love my family. In their imperfections, I see myself. And in my imperfections, I see them.

--I'm praying that my time doing what I'm doing now is winding down. I've felt the opening to a new path coming for a while, but I have yet to happen upon it. But I'm still trotting along the path, eyes open. Watching. Waiting.

--I still believe in love. Not just any type of love, but that love. I'm still trotting along the path, heart open, though not as wide as before, but definitely open. Watching. Waiting.

--If you could go back in time, would you really change things the way you think you would, or would you fall right back into the same behavior that caused the mistake in the first place?

YES! When I jog around the track...I imagine the trees in my view are palm trees...or that I'm on Venice Beach. I'd be in tip top shape w/ weather like that all year round.

*daydreams*

I know... straight daydreaming... I'm thinking I'm going to end up out there, at some point.
