glasses, shopping, toy packaging...

i have a stigma... that i am feeling i need to admit to.

it drives my family and friends and crazy, but i can not break the habit, no matter how hard i try.

i dont finish water. if it tastes funny. and it mostly always tastes funny.

i am like the little girl in signs.

only hopefully i don't have to fight off aliens anytime soon.

but i don't just put down my water if it doesn't taste right, or has a funny smell, or god forbid has a floaty.

i hardly ever finish a glass of anything.

something about the end of a drink gives me the heebies.

i don't know what it is... but i can not make myself drink the end of a glass of anything, save a milkshake or a glass of wine.

it has almost cost me my marriage 24.6 times. it drives matthew crazy. he can not understand how i can be so wasteful. i can not understand what the big deal is. so what i have 10 half full glasses of beverages in the living room, the bedroom, the bathroom, the kitchen counter.

on friday at work i quietly stack my coke cans into neat stacks and carefully try to carry them into the kitchen so i can dump them. 5 cans ranging from half full to mostly empty.

i have a problem. i need help. but i don't want help just yet, i like keeping my distance form the end of beverages, the creepy, hairy, dirty, warm, floaty infested, germ ridden, ends of beverages.

i have started and nearly finished my christmas shopping in 2 days. and i never want to shop again. that is all i have to say about that.

have you ever heard this song by sara groves?

this is the only you tube video i could find of this song... so just listen to the song, don't concentrate on the video. uh. yah.

this song makes me is smart and witty and funny and cute and brilliant and i like it a lot. i am excited to turn on klove at christmas time because i know i will hear this song. and it just brightens my day a little.

hopefully you like it too... but if not, we can still be friends.

have a blessed thursday folks. the work week is almost over. almost. hold on tight.

    M, did you get Sara's new album yet? It takes my breath away... in a good way. You'd love it. It hearkens back to her earlier stuff, but is SO thoughtful and ... there aren't enough words.

    And I don't finish water, either, unless it has ice, which I eat.

    But Diet Coke? I never waste a drop. :)

    I heard Toy Packaging the other day on KLOVE for the first time ever. I have been meaning to look it up since then, but now I dont have to. Thanks for the link.

    Wondering who I am? Just someone who found your site from Quiet Life. I read Donna's blog every day and I check in here almost as often. I enjoy reading what you have to say. Keep on writing, sista!

  3. Toy Packaging just played on my shuffle. :)
