Random Ramblings

Walmart- I honestly think I should just set up a booth there. Or they should have designated seating areas to sit and visit with all the people you run into... that you haven't seen in years and years. Apparently Walmart is the vortex in which all lost acquaintance's suddenly re-appear. Usually all at the same time. When you are in a rush. Or the kids have to go to the bathroom. RIGHT. NOW. And always when you are standing in one of there ridiculously narrow isles.

You'd think, with all that Walmart does to get you into their store, that they would try and keep you there as long as possible. Which isn't too unpleasant if you are speaking to someone you 1)like 2)are near human 3)or are someone you haven't spoken to in awhile, but WANT TO.

Instead of the back log at the checkouts (grrr) why not toss out some benches somewhere? Maybe then we wouldn't be so bitchy about the lines. Throw in an espresso bar, and we could make a day of it there. You get most of our income anyway... might as well make us comfortable while you take it!

I ran into a couple of friends and even a few relations the other day. While I was blocking the isles. My 7 kids, her 3... plus a few in passing. Ahh- we're not fancy, people can go around us!

It is kinda of cruddy that of all places to meet up with people, it has to be at Wally-World... but at least there is a place for psycho, stir-crazy, house- bound peoples to get out. Mingle with "civilization."

And yes, I do know only crazy people shop there. Why do you think I go? And Why do you think I find people I know there?

Plus they have Frappicinos. That staves of the caffeine shimmies until real coffee can be found. **********************************************************************
In other news, Kenny and I got to go have a girls day. We haven't had much of a chance to get out on our own- usually someone in diapers needs attention. Or something.

So we went, had our nails done, She got her hair shortened...not quite as much as she wanted, but as much as I could bear to see go. Went shopping and to the Harry Potter movie.

I think I was just the driver and personal ATM.

Maybe I counted wrong. She can't be a teenager yet. Can she?! **********************************************************************
My parents have had a houseful (well, forever! But recently a bit fuller that usual!) I don't think I can remember a time when they seemed happier!

Dad and my Bro have gotten into flying remote control airplanes. Well TRYING to fly them~ And I think they are passing on the affliction.

For the past week or so, All I have heard about are the airplanes, the jokes, and how there are 5 or 6 computers and multiple cell phones up and running. At the same time. Why speak when you can IM... across the room!

The kids and I went over yesterday... comfortable chaos. Got to visit, have some burgers. Realizing again, how small a town/ world we live in.

We always considered them as family... with all the chain link connections around here... Maybe we are! ************************************************************************
Yes, Dad. Texas is purdy. But you'd better take me if you go!
