In Which I Walk a Fine Political (Not Really) Line.

So, this really isn't so much a story about politics, as it is about the, well, um...the quirkiness of my brain.

The Mr. has long wondered "what it's like" to live in my mind...jumping from this subject to that and back again in a nanosecond. I once walked him through a total train of thought  derailment that went something like this: When you asked me about my day and I answered "fine" I then remembered that I needed to get my hair done because once upon a time I went to a salon called the "Fine Line" and when I remembered I needed to get my hair done, it reminded me of the oils that my current salon sells and then I remembered that someone at work was asking me about Young Living and I needed to get them a catalogue.

It can get pretty scary up in this old brain of mine.

Anyway, last night, the Mr., who is a staunch conservative, was talking about the drones that government purportedly has AND OH MY GOSH, we're on the verge of living the Hunger Games.

My response?

"Hmmm. I guess we should move. Can we move to England? I hear they have really good food! Someone told me they have this stuff called "Brown Sauce"..." and then he died.

Laughing. And shaking his head in utter disbelief at where I had taken the conversation.

I even impressed my teenager with that thought derailment. In fact, he told me, "THAT was impressive!! You did like a COMPLETE 180 on that one! That takes skill."

Yes, my friends, I AM skilled in something.

Now, if only I could learn to sew...which reminds me, I never showed you the blanket that some creepy internet friends and I "made" (well, helped make) for our super sweet creepy internet friend Kate, did I?

THAT my friends, is a post worth waiting for!


  1. As I said on facebook, gotta love the workings on a female brain. And I'm with you on moving to England. ;)

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!
