(**Do I have to put a title on every post?!**)


**I'm just wondering about that right now because if I do...then...we are pretty much ...yeah...screwed. I got nothing. **



I was listening to some music the other day and at the end of one song, the Great Jimmy B (as in Buffett, of course) said something that, after chuckling about it all day long, I guess I subconsciously adopted as my "way to do things this week" motto. And what were these incredible pearls of wisdom?




"Indecision may or may not be part of my problem."





Ever since Monday afternoon, I've been thinking about what to post next. So many possible topics to delve into...and yet....pfffllllltttttthhhhh. Again with the nothing.~~sigh~~ Can I play the "random card" again? I may have to just change the title of my blog from "Etc., Etc., Etc." to "Random Ramblings". (Thanks Google for the great picture!!)






Last summer when I was in the States, I spent quite a bit of time laughing my behind off in the aisles of the various card shops....Oh, I usually do this, but this time some of the cards were just extremely funny. (Maybe it was the funny cards + the margaritas...we'll never tell!). Anyway...the ones that were the best were those that had old pictures...you know the ones..the black and white photos that everyone has in boxes or faded picture albums at Grandma's house. Some of them had the funniest things in/on them...which caused many a ~snort~!
For example...there was this card.....

..and on the inside..."A man can sleep around, no questions asked, but if a woman makes nineteen or twenty mistakes she's a tramp."


Anyway, I found these napkins that used the same photos and yes, I do believe I have posted this particular one before, but...man...it does make me smile!!!


At Koji's daycare, in preparation for 1st Grade ("Everybody say YEAH!!!"), his group is no longer taking a nap or having 'quiet time' in the afternoon. For me....this is great. Koji is very much like me in that we power sleep. "And that would be....what, Debbie?" you may be asking yourselves. Let me try to explain....he and I do not require the average 8 hours plus of sleep that most people need because (and I'm totally just throwing out numbers here) I do believe that:

1 hour regular person sleeping time = 2.5 hours Debbie/Koji sleeping time



So...at the daycare, when Koji and his class were taking naps and sleeping 2 hours...for Koji, that was like sleeping almost 5 hours. Ergo...the evenings were hell here at Kamp Kuroiwa because one Little Kuroiwa wasn't sleepy....which made it difficult for Mama Kuroiwa to get anything done that she needed to get done. grrrrrrrrrrrrr for the last 5.5 years!!!!




But now.....peace has been restored at the Kamp in the evenings and it's great. It was a bit bumpy at first, with Little K. trying his hardest to take a nap on the sofa before dinner....at the table during dinner....after dinner...before bath. One night, he and I were watching TV while the K-Man and Bigger K. were in the bath....as we were watching, I noticed his arm getting heavier...and heavier...around my shoulder. The kid was out. Turn out the lights, the party's over. Good night, Dick. And of course, I had to take a picture of it.






Don't you wish that your fingernails matched the cup you were drinking out of???



(Sorry...sad to say, but...I would NEVER make it as a "hand model"!! Yikes!!)

Color, by the way is O.P.I.'s Japanese Rose Garden. {smile}


So....there I was...about to start class the other day....all 24 students sitting pretty quietly, waiting for me to get started....when I noticed the shirt of one of the younger ladies. I read it. Read it again....you know, to make sure that I had read it correctly the first time. After I could talk without chuckling....I asked her if I could take a picture of her shirt. Look at it...carefully. I love it!!! I may have to get one!!

~~sigh~~ I love Japan. Usually, the things I read on shirts are just eye-rolling stupid...but this? This one made me laugh!!!



A friend sent me a picture site that is really quite cool....so much stuff to do and waste whatever free time you have doing. Go to PhotoFunia and see what things you can create!!




Yep....this is me...today...at 3:54 PM.

May you be just that, to someone else. Pass it on!!! :-D
