All Of My Tomorrow’s

Today’s prompt from the Daily post: What keeps you awake at night?

 

All of my tomorrow’s keep me awake at night.  I like awake and wonder about things no matter how much I want sleep.  I toss and turn and turn again till I may as well remake the bed.  I’ve torn off all the covers with the crap inside my head.  You see, this is where I sleep but it is too where I dream.  It’s where I do all my major planning for all I wish and all I want.  Seem’s this time I need to figure a different way to use the time I’m supposed to sleep.  Sure, the time, I use wisely but I think I will set aside another time.  A time that I can dream awake and wish my dreams come true.  There’s one thing I no longer do.  I know longer think about you.

10 Of The Best Ever Shower Time Fun Pranks

Yesterday’s prompt from the Daily Post: How long can you go without taking a shower?   One thing I wanna say about that YUCK!  I really don’t like this  prompt so I am going to take the shower thing to a different level.

Fun pranks to pull when someone is in the shower.  Growing up, my baby brother used to leave the cold water running and not pull the shower lever.  What does this do?  Let me tell you what it does– It wakes your sleepy butt up at 5:00 a.m. when you get up for your morning shower because that water is COLD when you lean over the tub to turn the water on and it comes out the shower head to your head!!  You also remember it for the rest of your life and if one of your kids do this on accident you swear your baby brothers somewhere around.

With that being said here is my 10 of The Best Ever Shower Time Fun Pranks:

  1. Enter the bathroom.  Wait till the person showering has enjoyed his/her cleaning experience for at least 2 minutes then scream like you never have before.
  2. Obtain red food color.  Remove shower head and put the color in the shower head.  Listen for the results!
  3. Fill a 5 gallon bucket full of cold water.  Sneak into the shower and pour the water over the top of the shower rod.  Then run like hell!
  4. Take a shower with him/her.  Wait till they began to rinse their hair.  You take the Shampoo and squeeze a little on the top of their head while they rinse.   Repeat.   Then see how long they rinse.
  5. Sneak into the bathroom.  Turn out the light.  GRAB the person inside the shower by wrapping your arms around them shower curtain and all.  Hold tightly!
  6. Coat the floor in front of the shower with Oatmeal.
  7. Re-create your best version of Psycho.
  8. Put an electric eel in the water heater when they turn the water on it will shock them and you can call them Glow-Worms!
  9. If you don’t like the person that is in the shower stall, you could start whistling “It’s A Small World After All!”
  10. Their naked and showering.  Go turn the breaker completely off.

If you can think of any shower pranks, be sure to comment back, I would love for you to share them with me!

What Would You Do With A Million Dollars?

Today’s prompt from The Daily Post:  What Would You Do With A Million Dollars?

If I had a million dollars, I would invest some of it though I’m not sure how at the moment.  I would definitely talk to knowledgeable people so they could tell me.  Most of the money generated from the investment would be used as my children’s inheritance.

I would by my grandmother a small house and a new car. I would also take my grandmother on a trip to anywhere she wanted to go.
I would buy my home as well somewhere out in the country.  I would like to buy at least 100 acres and my grandmothers home would be next to my own.

I would take my mom and step-dad somewhere special because they always did the same for me.

I would write that book I am going to write one day.

I would take my kids to Disney World.  I would also take them somewhere out of the country either Germany or France.  I prefer Germany because I want them to see the things that I saw on my trip when I was 13 years old.  I would buy an RV so that myself and the kids could travel across the United States and camp at every national park .

I would also take my cousin Jane somewhere she has never been because she has never been out of Alabama but she would have to fly in an airplane. She and I would also take a trip to L.A.  I would also take her to a casino(so we could take a chance and try winning another million dollars).  She and I would try something that we have never tried before like bungee jumping or jumping out of an airplane but holding onto someone else.  Then, we are Hawaii bound baby!  When I vacation in the South of France, she’s going with me.

The rest of it I would start a non-profit organization that had to do with senior citizen or nursing homes and group homes for mentally challenged adults and children.  They would also have internet access so that they could learn the computer and send photos of themselves on Bingo night to their family and friends.

Then I would hope and pray for the next million!!!!

What would you do?

What’s The Most Trouble You Have Ever Been In?

Today’s prompt from The Daily Post:  What’s The Most Trouble You Have Ever Been In?

Oh my God.  Are you for real?  Which time?   My mom reads my posts.  Not to mention my sweet, sweet sister who has not ever been in any trouble.  I was the rebellious child.

Thinking back to my childhood years, envisioning several minor yet, noble incidents like the time I whipped that kid in the neighborhood for calling my baby brother a name.  Then, there was the time that I got caught sneaking out.  That doesn’t include all the countless times that I snuck out and didn’t get caught.  Andrea Schmoller and I had made so many prank phone calls one day that her dad’s phone was cut off just until he came home though and could talk to the phone company.  There was this other time that was really bad.  The terrible, horrible, notebook incident that caused my mom to go into labor with my baby brother Matt. In my mind, I am seeing the event.  The one I am trying to avoid……….

I am really very ashamed still to this day and I am 41 years old.  I did most of my growing up in Lilburn, Georgia.  When we first moved there from Alabama, my parents rented a house while they had one built.  We finally moved into our new home.  The house was inside Cambridge Farms Subdivision.  It was a stuffy neighborhood at first.  You know the kind where you didn’t step in another person’s yard because your going to hurt the grass or something.  I don’t know.  My mom and dad(step-dad) were married in the new home.  The house was large.  It was beautiful.  To my mom, the house signified her own accomplishments.  My mom is the best role model a girl could have had growing up.  I am proud of her.

This particular summer I had to go to summer school.  I would not finish in time to begin our family vacation.  Everyone was on their way to Hilton Head, South Carolina.  I would have to stay behind and finish summer school.  Afterwards, I would fly to Hilton Head to meet up with the rest of the family.  My dads parents were also in Hilton Head it was to be the first time that we met them.  They were from New York.  They were to come back to Lilburn with us to see the new house.

The day my family left my parents were going to take me over to a friend’s house where I would stay until summer school was complete.  My dad had taken great pains to be sure the windows of the house were locked and secured.  He even placed chairs under the door knobs for extra protection.  Having already schemed a plan with Karen and Leigh I told my parents that I had forgotten something inside the house as we were backing out of the driveway.  So my dad pulled back up and handed me the house key.  I went inside and unlocked the back door and removed the chair from under the knob.  Picked up my bag I had pretended to forget and out the door I went.

It was only supposed to be a small party with 3 girls and 3 guys.  Leigh and her boyfriend decided to go get some Boone’s Farm.  Unbeknownst to me, they also went by Green’s Corners which was the hangout spot and put the word out that there was a party.  Back at the house, I began to wonder where they had gotten off too.  I looked out the front door and my jaw dropped to the floor.  The longest line of cars that I had ever seen in my entire life that was not part of a funeral procession was coming down the road in our nice new neighborhood.  People started filling into our home.  I didn’t know what to do.  I was 16 years old.  There were people from 4 of the surrounding schools 2 of the schools were major rivals.  There were 150 people in my parents new home.  Things were out of control so bad that at one point I started to call my parents.  The police came out twice.  The third time everyone was asked to leave.  The house was destroyed.  I feared for my life.

My friends and I tried to fix what we were able.  We nailed down the carpet back to the stairs that led to the upper level.  We were able to find the covers to the fire alarm people had taken off the walls.  I had tried to find them all night.  You could hear them going off all through the house that night.  We cleaned the white carpet.  You can’t clean the cigarette burns from the carpet.  Nor, did we have enough know how to fix the hole in the wall in my sisters bedroom.  We placed a picture over the hole.

Having flown to Hilton Head Airport, I caught a cab to the beach house.  The trip to Hilton Head was the longest trip.  The cab ride alone seemed to go on forever.  I didn’t have the guts to tell them there………..  and this is where I will end this post.  I think I will call my mom and thank her for allowing me to live……   : )

 

I’m Posting every day in 2011!

Wow!  This is so cool!  Tonight, I decided to go tag surfing to check out other bloggers.  I surfed on over to Not Pretending(to be Sane) which is an awesome blog!  Be sure to check out her “Top 10 Best Words Ever.” Also, her “The One That Got Away” post.  It is hilarious.  I noticed that she had a button on her side bar about participating in a post a day.  I wanted to learn more so I clicked the button.  This led me to The Daily Post which is another awesome blog!  I’ve decided I want to blog more.  Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting now.  I will be posting on this blog once a day for all of 2011.

I know it isn’t going to be easy, but I believe it is going to be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful.  Therefore, I’m promising to make use  The Daily Post, and the community of other bloggers with similar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.
