Just Thinking Out Loud

Just thinking out loud and sharing...


First off, hubby was off work yesterday and we spent a very large part of the day at the car dealership.  I posted awhile ago about his car breaking down and me having to take him to work every morning.  I didn't mind taking him actually, unless it was nasty weather, but on the days the weather was inclement it made me just cringe.  Why don't adults get snow days?  :)

In any case, I am THRILLED for hubby.  He's very frugal (very), and doesn't like monthly payments, but I think he'll be so happy to have his own ride that's new.  He works hard and has been at the same job for over 15 years, he should treat himself to something nice.  I hope my gentle urging though, doesn't backfire and cause him stress (he really does hate payments).  Time will tell, but yesterday he was very happy. :)


My daughter is in love.  Still the same blue-haired boy I talked about earlier, though his hair isn't blue anymore. ;)  They've been friends for years, and officially a 'couple' since the end of the summer, but boy oh boy, she's got it bad.  I'm glad he's a nice boy.  I've forgotten how intense the heart can be when you're her age.  It's nice to have the reminder (they start high school next year).  Pretty sure this boy will never leave her heart, and many years from now she'll still have fond memories of their time together.  I like that...


Change doesn't scare me, usually.  Maybe because I'm getting older now, I'm getting more uncomfortable with plunging head first into big changes?  In any case, I have three, yes three (no sense in doing it up small I always...never say ;) ) huge changes about to occur in my life.  And I'm a little scared.  Age giving me common sense?  Maybe. Or maybe I've just gotten too comfortable.  In any case, I'm still forging, but I have a marked sense of apprehension about the outcomes.  I'm mentally searching for all of those inspiring quotes that are always floating around, but have a mind block I guess because I cannot think of a one. ;)  Still, I think change is good.  You can't make things different if everything you do remains the same.

And finally, it's Friday, woo hooo!  My most favorite day of the week.  Happy Friday everyone. :)

Change is growth whether its good or bad. I tend to just go with it the more I fight it the harder it is and every change has added something. Awesome for the hubs, congrats to your daughter and many and every blessing to you xxxooo

I'm not big on change, although I know it's something that has to happen in order for me to grow. That is so cute about your daughter and who knows, maybe the blue haired boy will be your future son in law :)

Yes the heart can be quite intense at that age can't it? So true. Congrats to your husband by the way!!

Betty Taylor said...

When my son was that age I told him that his relationships were all practice for the real thing later in life. Odds are you aren't going to spend your life with that person, but you are learning things that will enhance later more sustaining relationships.

A dear friend taught me not so very long ago that we need to come out of our comfort zones every once in awhile. Expand our borders. Congratulations on the new car!

Pat Hatt said...

Congrats to all at your hall and yeah hate payments too, although I got a few. And change can be grand as long as it isn't negative crap like health and such in the land.

Cyndi Calhoun said...

Happy Friday to you!! Change? Oh man, I'm not so big on the change. My husband embraces it better than I do. When I come home, sometimes he'll have the whole living room rearranged. Yes, HE'S the one who does the arranging around here and I'm always like, "but it was fine before!" Heheh. He always points out that it takes me awhile to warm up to change. He's right. Dang it. :D

Julie Maloney said...

Congrats on the new car, I still remember the day I got mine - love the smell! I'm TERRIBLE with change. It takes me forever to get used to it.

Anonymous said...

Yay for a new ride!

I remember the middle school puppy love stage. And you are right, she won't forget him once she's older. I still remember my first real heart throb...(even though "going out" consisted of sitting next to each other at lunch and never really seeing each other outside of school lol).

Frugal in WV said...

We just got a new car last month too. I am like your husband, I hate payments, but I do love the new car :)

Colette S said...

I do hope your husband will not stress and enjoy his new ride. I agree they should treat themselves.

I told mine to do that the other day and then ....lol long story.

Being in love...ahh sigh. Yes it's a good thing for the heart. She should enjoy it.

I acknowledge change. I don't mind gradual, but when it kicks in my door, I have a major problem :)
Here's to hoping for a good transition through your big changes.

And yes Happy Friday! Though it's spring I don't get to sleep in anymore. Saturdays soccer, cleaning and shopping for groceries.
Sunday church and soccer. No rest.

Renae at simple sequins said...

Rosey! I had to read a double take. I thought you said the blue EYED boy. When I read that it was NOT blue anymore. I had to re-read it. Oh, Hair, blue hair. hahahaha. Thanks for your fun comments. Those shoes are made to not have laces, because they have an elastic fastened under the tongue that straps across, other wise they would fall off. So if dd wants to go without laces in her regular shoes, ya they will fall off unless you sew a wide elastic strap under the tongue. I had a young neighbor a few years ago that wanted to have her shoes without laces and they were falling off of her all the time. She survived. She is married now. Take your changes one at a time and say whoa to the others, okay? (hug)

Change is very hard! I've never liked it myself. It probably does get worse with age. It's just so hard to get used to new things sometimes.

So sweet about your daughter being in love :) Young love...ahhh!

kristi said...

Hi Rosey! Happy Friday to you. Great post today. You come across as so genuine and true to yourself. If anyone can handle change it will be you! Congrats. to your husband on his new car. We are thinking of a new car in the spring/summer. We've enjoyed having no car payment since April- so can certainly relate!
