What's on my mind

I'm not going to lie. I totally got this idea Riding the Roller Coaster. Hers is called To Whom it May Concern and you should click that link and read it. I fell in love with idea because I haven't blogged in so long, and there's always a lot on my mind - so maybe it will make more sense this way. I'm not going to guarantee that though - after all, it's me blogging!

Dear Doctor,
If I was 45 minutes late to my appointment not only would you not see me, but you would charge me for a missed appointment. Please don't give me attitude when I say I need to reschedule after waiting so long.

Dear English Professor,
I really do appreciate that you are giving me a chance to raise my grade on my first paper. With two science projects, a computer project, and math I just don't have time. Let's face it, I'm not the greatest writer so I'll take my B- and be really proud of my work.

Dear Math Professor,
When five of the six students in your class aren't getting it it's not because we're lazy or not trying. Maybe it's just not being explained in a way that we all understand. You're teaching us to teach math to kids; sometimes we may need it explained differently too, just like them.

Dear Kenmore,
Thanks for having the delay start on my washing machine. I discovered it last week and it's helped me get a handle on the laundry so now I actually have some time to spend with my family.

Dear Weight Watchers,
Thanks for keeping me accountable on my journey. I knew what needed to be done and thanks to you I make sure I do them - who wants that scale to go up and feel like crap? Now that we are team you should know I've lost 20 pounds so far this year!

Dear My First 5K,
I was supposed to run you in two weeks, but that won't happen now. Since my doctor couldn't see me on time and I couldn't wait any longer to take x-rays, I'm still in my walking cast. I will have to do it later, but be warned - I'm still going to kick your butt!

Dear Mother Nature,
I know we're in a severe draught so I didn't mind the rain. But for the last week it's rained every single day. The roads are flooded - you're not doing us any good - so please stop.

Until next time ~ Kris

What's Your Song? 9.15.11

Thursday, which means it's time to link up with Amber at Goodnight Moon for What's Your Song. I decided to still link up even though I learned this past weekend that Amber is a Michigan fan! Ah, she seemed so nice too! We decided even though we will never agree on college football, we could still get along =)  Oh and if you're reading this Ms Amber for some reason I can't comment on your song - but I really liked it!

Usually I just pick songs I like, they don't have to mean anything but today I chose this one because I have a very dear friend who's going through some rough times. So {nameless friend} listen to the beautiful voices of Wilson Phillips and Hold On! You're always in my thoughts and I love you dearly.

Until next time ~ Kris

'Ello Loves

Yes, it's me again
the sporadic poster from h e double hockey sticks
What can I say?
I keep thinking 
"I really miss blogging"
"I really need to post something"
and doesn't it always come down to a 'but'
(in form or another)

So, here I am
randomly posting because I feel like if I don't
I will lose my freakin' mind
(I know, some of you think it's already gone
and some of you know it is)
the truth is out there somewhere
*cue X-Files theme*

I would like to say 
you rock
to anyone who can actually take a full course load
(married, or not with kids or without)
and hold the rest of your life together
I'm having trouble doing that
so, if anyone can help me figure out someway
that I can learn how to keep learning
not only would I be grateful
but my husband
(who's pretty sure I forgot how to cook and clean)
and my son
(who thinks the washer and dryer are broken)
would also be grateful

Until next time ~ Kris

No Surprise

Well look who decided to make a sporadic post. Dang - school is truly kicking my butt this semester. *sigh* only 13 weeks to go.

Today I'm linking up with Goodnight Moon for What's your song.

I love this guy. I've only bought two CD's in the last five years and they are his. Seriously. I love him so much my dearest calls him my boyfriend. But I love the tone of his voice and he sings the kind of songs I love. Dang, did I say 'love' enough. You get the picture. right?

Please enjoy - No Surprise by Daughtry

Until next time ~ Kris
