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.

Highly Underutilized.


Happiness: is a mental state of well-being characterized by positive emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.

People and their pursuit of happiness, it isn't something you are entitled too, it is a state of mind.

Damn Oprah. I am so glad Pop Pardy got me watching her since I was 13 yrs old. 20 years later, I am still watching Oprah and still learning from her shows everyday!!

Mindless TV.

Don't you just love to watch all those reality tv shows?
 Toddlers and Tiaras..really. Why do those mother's put their children in that, and I say children because some mom's parade around their son's. Wow. Feeding them sugar just to keep them going or even coffee..
But what gets me the most, why in the hell do I watch it?!
American idol. LOVE this show, no thought to it. nothing too intelligent. It sure does give me a good laugh. but I also get a little heart warming from it, love seeing people succeed. Still there is a side of me that even likes to see people fail, shocking..human nature. But it is how they react to their failure, provides such entertainment. Gosh I feel horrible now.
Then this Jersey Shore, Jersday!!! love watching all those kids get wasted and whore Man I need a life. I guess I am living vicariously through the TV.

Anyway, it is late..and my bed and TV is calling, maybe a little HGTV or some TLC..

Night too all my fellow couch potatoes.

P.S, I do like CNN :)


Hey, look I have a friend who have joined my blog. Welcome Michele.
As if we don't talk enough right.

So I have been thinking about what people blog about, most people have a point or some sort of agenda, but nope not me. My blog is going to be totally random.

I am sure for the most part I am going to be talking to myself...
Drop me a comment if you came by..

So here it goes. My blog...

Why in the hell are you starting a blog?" My friends ask. Well. I rant on and on about pretty much nothing and sometimes things are just too funny not to share, so here it goes. Sharing my life with you all.
I stay at home right now looking after my 13 year old daughter and my son is gone to college, while my husband travels for work leaving me to "tend" to the house and our electrical business. My mother is living with us now. Which makes for less quiet times and she is a great help with my daughter with rides and all the other typical teenage stuff they need.

Anyway, this was my first entry. Wish me luck. And goodness knows what you might find me writing about in here...from teenage daughter to how totally forgetful I am and about how goofy my dog is..maybe even how annoyed I am with just everyday life...
