Julie & Julia

My reason for blogging. The movie that made me want to blog.
My inspiration. Now. If I can only be lucky enough to find the words.

"I should pass through this world but once, any good therefore that I can do or any kindness I could show to any human being, let me not differ or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again."
 -Jerry Lewis.

I love this. And with so many deaths in the "Big Land" lately it sure does put it in perspective.


I have been wanting to write something for days now, but can't put
"Pen to Paper" so to speak.

So what is new? How is life? What are you doing this weekend?
Nothing too new here, I am looking forward to a nice weekend of doing nothing, for no one...
Life is pretty good. Loving my new home, enjoying time on ski-doo. My children are all fine. So life is pretty good. My plans for the weekend. Forecast: Some TV, maybe a movie or two, and little ski-doo ride with a possibility of some wine tasting and slight chance of a hangover...
Gawd, I got it made. and I know it!!

My mind is" blogged". Ugh! I need something to write about, you know find that witty comment, just the right word. They aren't coming.

Do you clean your teenagers room?  Or do you make them do it themselves?
Honestly is this such a big deal, like I make it out to be. Am I that crazy?  Who really cares how clean my bedrooms are? I mean who sees them?  I DO!
This drives me to totally insane. A constant thorn in my side.
Dear, Daughter of mine...if mommy cleans your room will this make you a "dirty lazy" adult.
Will my constant nagging make my daughter turn into a hoarder?  Or if I change my mind and just let her room be, will that make her hoard..Oh my!
It must matter, we as parents totally shape our children out to whom they become.
Maybe if I just let it be, she will one day just get it.

To Blog or not to BLOG,

That was my question today.

So, Jason Pardy has this great little blog about sports.
It is a true homage to his view of the sports world. He has a passion about sports, his knowledge of ALL sports gives him something great to talk about.
Now, I am sat here after reading his blog, "what the hell is my passion" Good Lord I must have something I can rant on about...I guess this is why my blog is called "Lorna's Rant Or Whatever".  I have nothing specific to talk about.

I keep thinking about my friends. I do not have a big circle of friend's. I keep to myself alot. But I find myself thinking about them and what they do with their daily lives and what are their passions.
Most of them are home with small children and are busy as bee's. Some are out of town. A lot of my friends like to "craft" unfortunately  I am not the crafty kind of person. And this means I do not share their passions.
I feel like I am at a different stage of my life then most of them, even though I am younger then some of them. I have already done what they are doing..I have had sleepless nights from teething, I have had the potty training and "no you have to share" experiences.
I am now going through teenage "stuff" I will be having sleepless night, and not because of teething.
And some of my friends will find out soon enough what I am dealing with (because one thing we all know for sure is that our children grow up too fast). Having teenagers, leaves me with a lot of free time, when I am not driving them around because they are into "hanging" with their friends more then Mommy. Which by the way I wouldn't want it any other way.

Sonow with my free time what I am I to do?!  I am now a blogger and soon going to be back as a runner. I LOVE running and I guess there are my two passions besides being "Mom".

So, this is my rant and this is my passion, just general ideas of life as I know it.

My Friends

I do not get to see my friends as often as I would like, but I talk to most of them on a daily basis.
And what I like about each one of them, I can be myself . They have learned to accept me for me. Or so they say.
We can have deep conversations or totally random nonsense.
I believe Michele and I can define our conversation and maybe even have such deep understanding each other we can tell what one is thinking by our tone or the smile on our faces..The comment that comes to my mind "You smile cause you were thinking it too. Don't lie." Horrible, but god I love talking to her..

Sandra and I, I believe is the sister I never had...I think I can call her about 5 times a day, and we always have something different to say. We tend to just understand each other and our children, the lack of being judgemental of each other is the best. Although, we both can say whatever we want to each other and it will be ok. 

I like how my friends know that there can be days that I will call or they will call and I can chat and chat, but I love how they know it is normal for me to not answer the phone somedays or I might not call for days and days...It is just me. Nothing personal, it just means I am not in the mood to be on the Typically Me.
I would assume there are times they just don't wanna worries right girlies...because we are friends there is no pressure.

I know my friends will laugh at me when I fall on my face, or it is them sat next to me in jail and saying "oh shit" and laughing about it.

In time I will share a few more things about all my friends. I would be lost without them, and the things we say and do are priceless. Sometimes some of it is worth sharing..and sometimes some things I can not share..God Love them.
