Time Flies, Mother Nature’s Hot Flash, Princess Nagger’s Final Words

I don’t know about you, but it seems the weeks are flying by faster and faster.  Shut up, I heard one of you say I’m just getting old.  Just because they say time flies by faster when you get older doesn’t mean we’re getting old, right?  Tell me I’m right.  Please.

So Mother Nature is in rare form these days, isn’t she?  The last couple of weeks we’ve ended up with freeze warnings practically every night – then yesterday the heat was on.  Our high was supposed to be 87, but of course it ended up at 92.  In April.  I think Mother Nature confused her “A” months and thought it was August.

I’d love to get paid a lot of money like the weather people do to be wrong all the time – it was predicted there was no chance of rain over the weekend, so imagine our surprise when it sounded like the sky was falling:

I guess the weather people were right though, because it wasn’t rain it was hail.  That’s not a great representation, but it gives you an idea of the beginnings of the freak hail storm we got – I may be crazy, but not crazy enough to stand out there longer than to get a couple of quick shots with my phone. I also didn’t get the ‘after’ mode when it ended up being several inches of hail after the blustery wind died down. 

I know it’s nothing compared to what other people got farther West than us (and my heart goes out to those affected by the tornadoes over the weekend), but when it’s totally unexpected it just proves that the weather is a finicky thing.  Like our 10-day forecast (just picture the first ‘high’ that’s a dash as 90 to 92):

Dropping 20 degrees from yesterday to today, another 10-ish more tomorrow.  It’s been fluctuating like that for the last six months.  Crazy.  No wonder I still have a tinge of a cold that’s hanging on for dear life.

See what’s happening here?  I sat down at my laptop with nothing in my brain to write about, so what do I do?  Talk about the weather.  I might need some serious professional help.

Oh here, this is better:

Random Comment from the Princess Nagger:

“When I die, I want my last words to be:  “I left a million dollars in…” then just die without finishing my sentence.  No one would know where the million dollars was.”

I didn’t even have a response to that, I was laughing too hard.  Of course I had to whip out my phone and add it in my notes just so I wouldn’t forget, and so I could relay it to you.  Naturally she was looking over my shoulder as I did to make sure I got it down correctly.  Good thing, I wouldn’t want to misquote her or anything. 

Yes, she is a constant source of entertainment, why do you ask?

That’s enough drivel for this week – feel free to link up and hop around to all the other awesome randomizers – they’re always so much more entertaining. Thank you all again for keeping the random alive. I couldn’t do it without you.

Haha! Princess Nagger makes me laugh. That is hysterical. I might have to write that down. I can imagine Mr.McHunky’s face if I left a note like that after I died. Haha!

I like the way that girl’s mind works – very tricky. Has she been reading mystery books? We’ve been having freaky weather here too. I never know what to wear! And I just realized that you made TWO little buttons, with and without wine! That’s so funny. Did somebody complain?!

Agreed, the weather has been quite wacky lately.

These weather swings actually scare me a bit. I can’t complain – we’ve only had really hot and really cold swings, but if it’s in the 80′s in April, how disgusting is the summer going to be?

We have the weirdness going on here too. Twelve inches of snow last week…then 60 yesterday!! Sheesh

Growing older has nothing to do with how fast the days are zinging by. Just ask any kid, and they will agree with you on how quickly time is passing. I use to think it was just me, but my kids always felt the same.

Oh, girl! I’m like so with you on not knowing what to blog about much less randomize about whatever happens to drop in my mind. Could it be we need a break from the whole blog thing until new material drops in our laps?

Unfortunately, blogging is my newest drug and I just can’t seem to pull myself away. Oh! Sure, I can do without my daily blogging for short spurts, like for a weekend. Anything beyond that then I get fidgetty.

Heavens, PN has a big imagination! This is too funny and I know what you mean, kids are totally entertaining. They say the funniest stuff. I guess this is why funny man Bill Cosby used his kids so much as material in his routine. He was constantly inspired!

I wish I could remember have the comments Sprite makes, just last night I was working with my mom’s sewing machine and Sprite ambles up and says, “Now, Mommy, remember what you did the last time you used this? Don’t do it again.” We’re still working on my sewing skills. And her tact..

Our weather has been, shall we say, unpredictable? Maybe weather by Sybil? Definitely not fun to have all four seasons in one day.

The weathermen ALWAYS mess up! They are so inaccurate! If we were that inaccurate in our day to day jobs, we’d be fired. It makes me so mad. We’ve had some nasty weather lately complete with hail and tornadoes. It sucks.

You’ve got one funny daughter! I love her idea though! How funny! Thanks for linking up! I’m thinking about taking a swig of some wine tonight. Which one should I open first? And which one is mislabeled? LOL!

That quote from PN is priceless! Love it!!

The weather here has been crazy too…we had a few days of extreme heat in March, and again yesterday. Today it’s back to “winter” – cold and windy. Very odd!!!

I’m worried that all of this lovely warm weather is going to result in a HOT SUMMER and I’m going to have to resort to drinking a box of Chardonnay on the patio.

I was ROLLING on the floor over PN’s comment. PLEASE, tell her she doesn’t have to tell anyone *where* she left the money, as long as she left it to me.

Then again, I’ll be about 105 when that happens, so let her keep her secret. ;)

Hail? Wow. Did you have any damage?

Our days have been pretty warm, but the evenings are just perfect with cool breezes. I’ll take it. It’s going to get very, very hot really quick.

I’m not complaining about our weather, I love it hot! I went to he beach all day yesterday, that’s why I’m just now making the rounds, and I’m heading to the pool as son as I’m done here. I love Florida!

I need to start writing the things my girls say down, I forget them way too easily. Yesterday Peanut told me not to come home because” Shh, don;t tell anyone, I have someone over” all in a whisper. Seriously!

Thanks for linking up and I hope you have a beautiful, dry Wednesday!
