Updates part 49034953

One to three sentence updates on twelve topics rolling around in my head.

1.)  Delighted as I may be to have my new iPhone [having been without a cellular device since April and all] with my old number, this is a time for personal reflection.  Which is a nice way of saying I want to personally reflect in solitude.  My two week stint of being a social butterfly has come and gone.

2.)  I live life on life’s terms…one day at a time.  Spirit aligned the forces of the universe to do for me what I could not do for myself.  While I may be completely powerless, I choose to be in control.

3.)  My Aunt Tish, Dad’s sister, is moving in with us at the beginning of next month.  We’re on a mission from God to make this place spic and span in the process of some creative rearranging.  I can’t wait to see my aunt again, it’s been too long!

He won't get the joke when we have to dismantle his fort.

The fort prior to its demolition.

4.)  Until I lugged them all upstairs today, Adam made quite the fort out of the boxes Aunt Tish had shipped.  That boy is a force of nature whose energy knows no bounds.  Spend an hour with him and you’ll be exhausted.

5.)  Considerably less hyperactive than her big brother, Tatum is my little sweetie.  She also has career aspirations and has announced her plans to be a teacher.  In the meantime, she’s practicing rolling her tongue.

6.)  I adore Tatum O’Neal and recently read her book, A Paper Life, again.  She’s such an inspiration to me.  It is no coincidence she shares a name with my daughter.



7.)  Today’s sermon at Neshoba revolved around what happens when we die.  It could not have come at a more appropriate time for me and I’ve been thinking about it all day.  Kudos on a job well done, Rev. Beth.

8.)  I very much want to see Mockingjay: Part 1 and The Theory of Everything.  Any takers?

9.)  “Tomorrow marks my seven year wedding anniversary with William Reed….We’re still legally married, but life has taken us on very different paths.  He’s the father of my children and that guarantees he’ll always have an important place in my heart.  Everybody makes mistakes.  I don’t judge him, I forgive him, and I love him.” ~  Facebook status 10/12/14

10.)  Online dating is not for me and I will no longer be on OkCupid.  Now is just not the time for me to date, period, much less have a significant other.  However, I did enjoy myself on the two dates I went on and made half a dozen or so new friends so all was not in vain.

11.)  For a variety of reasons I’m starting from square one tomorrow with my running program.  I won’t mention it again until its completion.  Would you believe me if I told you I had a really bad habit of starting things but not seeing them through until completion?!

12.)  “Logan International Airport:  Nude suspect assaults 84-year-old man after falling through ceiling” was the top trending story on Facebook yesterday.  I kid you not.  Read about it here if you don’t believe me.

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,




About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
