Buy A Pony – Doodle Poetry

 Pony hug

If you’re ever sad or lonely,
You should buy yourself a pony

He can be your bestest buddy,
Better than a brand new puppy

I had one, then two, then three
They are fun, you will see

When your feeling very down,
Just hop right on and ride around
And Maybe with a bit of luck,
You’ll buy a pony that does not buck

Pony buck

He’ll cheer you up on the saddest day
       He’ll make your troubles melt away
             He’ll teach you patience and he’ll play
                   And just for fun he’ll disobey

Four, then five, then six and seven
My back yards like pony heaven
Eight, then nine, then ten and twenty
Please buy a pony, cause I have plenty

Blog A Day- Sunday Fun Day

Sundays blog is about “Fun”.
We have wrapped up our trip to San Luis Obispo for my husbands graduation from OCS and the 6+ hour drive home is my first chance to spend anytime with him in this whole 5 day trip. Normally long drives wouldn’t be considered my way have having a fun time BUT I’m determined to create opportunities for fun along the way.
– starting with a quick stop by the arcade to watch my son get the high score on one of his favorite games while hubby and I sip on coffee and cocoa.
– next, after being on the road for a short bit we pulled over at the beach and stuck our feet in the sand and shallow waves.
– on the walk back to our car we found an amazing Old Fashioned Cinnamon Roll shop. Yum!! (My sons ultimate favorite)

We will now be spending a few more hours on the road before stopping again. Since Sundays is usually our “date night” I decided, in the spirit of Fun Day Sunday, I would spend a little time brainstorming some future Fun date nights that we can enjoy.

Here is my list so far:
1. Picnic and sand castle building on the beach
2. A hike in the local mountains (maybe with a quick stop along the trail somewhere private 😉
3. Mountain biking with picnic
4. Strip poker (at home, of course)
5. Line dancing lessons
6. Bag pipe lessons (we’re both musicians but have never played bag pipes)
7. Do one of those “fit” courses together that they have in some parks
8. Laser tag
9. Go to one of those arcades that has tickets and cheesy prizes and blow $40 trying to win a stuffed animal 🙂
10. Go to the shooting range together so he can laugh at my attempts to hit a target.
11. Drive In movie theatre
12. Roller skating/blading

What are your Sunday Fun Day ideas?


Blog A Day- Silly Saturday

Today is Silly Saturday but I’m having a hard time finding the silly-ness. I have a very serious day of ceremonies for my husband who is graduating from Officer Candidate School!!! Woohoo!!!
All I can say is “It’s FINALLY going to be over!!”
I am extremely proud of him but I have to admit it has been a rough past year.
I will say that I am finding it rather “Silly” that he has spent until midnight last night preparing with the other candidates, then has to leave the hotel at 5:30am this morning to prepare more for an event that starts at 10:00am. Then will likely be put to work for more duties until the formal dinner tonight and yet, even after that, he will be held longer for final formation etc. etc.
We have been staying at the hotel near base since last Wednesday and In 4 days, I have seen him for a total of 3 waking hours.
Ceremony starting…….. Gotta go!!


A Blog A Day- Fearless Friday

So “fearless” is today’s Blog A Day challenge and as I found myself struggling for something to write about my mind drifted through all the worries of my finances.
Fearless Finances.
I am a very giving person. Giving of my time and my resources and I like that about myself and don’t want to change it.
Here comes the “But”
But…. I have been digging a rather size able financial trench for some time now. It’s deep, dark, ominous and sometimes frightening to me. I spend much of my time looking elsewhere so that I do not have to acknowledge it at all. Unfortunately this blind behavior has given it strength and confidence. It has been growing. Sly sneaking and creeping up behind my back like a serpent. In my lack of acknowledgment it has developed a life of its own and intends on devouring me.
Well, today is Fearless Friday so I am going to face that scary financial trench head on! I am no longer going to give it strength thru my avoidance of it. After all, I have created this trench by being who I am and I don’t regret my decision to help others for an instant.
The trench is MY beast.
I must face it, acknowledge it, own it, collar it and quickly snap a leash on this Dragon before it learns to breathe fire on its own master.
By being Fearless I will gain control!!

What are you Fearless towards this Friday?
