Time with the fam

Ever feel so busy
you feel as if you do everything
but have time to finish nothing?

Ever feel like an octopus
being pulled in eight directions at once?

Ever get so overwhelmed
your body kicks into pain or sick mode
just to slow your stubborn butt down?

dirty deeds
oh my!

That's been my life lately.

I took leisure time
to sip coffee
with my man

and make
homemade pizza
with the fam

p.s. How is it that teenagers are so very illusive? He was right there with us making his pizza, cooking, cutting and eating. Pull out the camera and (zoooom) he's gone!

More than Mediocre

me•di•o•cre - adj.
Of moderate or low quality : ordinary (mediocrity)
(definition found in my handy dandy desktop Merriam Webster Dictionary)

I was thinking about the word mediocre earlier in the week. Truth be told it came to mind because that's the way I was feeling. Feeling mediocre is kind of a downer.

After pondering the word for a bit I had a bizarre epiphany.

Mediocre is a pretty lengthy and fancy word. The meaning does not do the word justice. How come "good" and "great" are so much better than "mediocre". They're plain little words without pizazz. I mean really. They only consist of one tiny little syllable! How great can they really be?

Mediocre sounds fancy, possibly even French with its "cre" ending. How grand a word you must be to prance around a sentence with four full and fanciful syllables.

I don't think the word gets the respect it deserves.

Hey, maybe it's the same for myself! Maybe I was feeling mediocre so I could have an epiphany about the word so I could see the correlation to myself! I feel mediocre, mediocre is so much more than it is given credit for, therefore, maybe I am so much more than what I give myself credit for!!! Yeah! I am pizazz, I am grand, I am so much more than moderate!

Gaaaah! Glad I released that crazy train of thought out of my brain. Now maybe there's some room to use for something more practical. Perhaps I could fill the space with kittens. Not literally, I mean to think about. Like as in "I could think about kittens" not "I should shove kittens in my brain to fill the space".


It's apparent my lack of sleep causes cranial consequences. I better go get some shut eye!
