ZZZZZZZ.....Sleep, glorious elusive sleep!


Make no mistake, I wanted very much to participate in the challenge again this year.  Especially, more so, since I chose to write from the point of view that I was talking to my children.  Sharing, saving and preserving memories, thoughts and feelings with them.  But I'm darn lucky if I get 61/2 hours sleep a night.  My job, the drive and errands keep me away from home a good ten hours a day.  That leaves very little time for blogging, relaxing, cooking, chilling with hubby or Bug and everything else in my world.  So, I am incredibly glad it is done.  I look so forward to have a little time to sit in a comfy chair instead of a computer desk chair.

  2. Barbie, I have read every one of your entries. As I have said before to my momma your writing is amazing. You are able to cut to the core of who I am, how I was raised, what is meaningful to me. All these things come through so loudly and clearly in the pictures of your words. I laugh, but most often I cry. You remind me who I am inside, where no one else can see and no one over here can understand. You remind me that it is okay to be me, and that I am different... Because I AM different in the most wonderful way.. I'm from deep east Texas!!

  3. It means a lot to me to know that I can touch you with my words, that I can somehow allow you to celebrate and cherish who you are. I can honestly say that I have only ran into any real discrimination or pressure to change my obvious roots once. Bottom line, I figured I was three times the person THAT person was. Also, I've just always been so intensely proud of where I come from and what it means to be Texas and rural.

    1. P.S. - I think your comment is going into my "proof of his faithfulness" file.

  4. I realize I don't know you, but I'm nominating you anyway for the Liebster Award. Check out my blog for details: http://jasonmrazwasright.blogspot.com/

  5. How different we humans all are, and all wonderfully different experiences and ways of living. As a big city boy, I dream of living in a rural setting some day, and yet in the UK, just like many other countries in the world, the rural folk often want to live in cities to find jobs, to have new friends and to see new horizons. We're a funny old lot hey, never satisfied and rarely if ever counting our blessings.

    1. I've always lived in rural settings or small towns. Wouldn't trade Caneyhead for anything, even with my 67 mile round trip commute.

    2. Wow! You go 30 odd miles in the UK you've got a different accent to hear, possibly a different shire and completely different people. I think in some vast parts of America going 30 miles would be nothing at all. I'll have to google Caneyhead.

    3. I don't know if Google will give you Caneyhead. It's an old community, but not a township. You could get the little town ten miles South of us, Silsbee, TX. And I do cross a County line on my way to work and back. The people are mostly the same from one place to another in Texas, especially if they are third generation or more Texans. But being from rural East Texas, I do have a stronger Texas accent then many of the people I work around.
