Fall is FINALLY here

So, after a very long, very hot summer, it would seem that Fall is finally here. It's rainy and cold today. Only in the mid 40's. It sounds like much of Colorado has even seen some snow. And wouldn't you know it, instead of being as busy as I would like to be, (baking, sewing, cleaning, etc.) I find myself with a bit of a stomach bug. Of course! My tummy hurts and at times feels like the bathroom may be in order. Sorry if that's T.M.I. but that's the way it is folks.
It would also appear that my Blog is in need of some house keeping. Geez, I logged on and was like "Hey, what the heck is all of this" in regards to all of the changes that Blogger has made. I like them, or at least think I do as I haven't done any exploring yet.
You know what's on my mind today and many of these past days though? Wait. I guess that's a loaded question because I always have a ton of stuff on my mind but here's what's been knocking around the "frontal lobe".....Sister Wives. (I never promised a "reasonable" or "thought provoking" topic. And remember, my tummy hurts so just let me go with this.) I really like watching the show. It's like a train wreck just waiting to happen! To me it's almost like going by an accident thinking "Oh I hope there's no one hurt" but craning my kneck just in case so I don't miss it!
 I would LOVE sitting down with these women and just asking and asking and asking. And you KNOW, my first questions would evolve around sex! But after I got that out of the way, I think I would have to ask "Why". If you truly believe this is what God wants for your life, then "why" do you experience jealousy? "Why" does the third wife appear to be considering leaving? The fourth wife made a comment on one of the first episodes of the new season that this was not about lust. It it was, the husband of these ladies could just get himself a hooker. It's cheaper. Uh huh...seems to me the lady doth protest too much! And by the way, GOOGLE that fourth wife and you can find a ton of nastiness about the debt she had to bring with her from her divorce from the first husband. So that leads me to another question..."why" in God's name would this man take on THAT?! I would think that since she does not work outside the home, Mr. Polygamist has to take that debt on himself. And let's not kid ourselves here...He is in lust with #4. He may also love her,(don't know and to be honest, don't care) but he is MOST DEF. IN LUST! It's written all over his face! I would PAY to have BSP look at me that way on a regular basis! So anyway, I just can't get these folks outta my brain! Is Polygamy more common than we think it is? And since Polygamy isn't legal anywhere in the US (I GOOGLED that too!) why isn't the Law concerned with these folks in Las Vegas? They left Utah over fear of legal action but guess what? It 'aint legal in the City of Sin either! Oh! And that's another thing! Vegas?!?! Aren't these folks supposed to be UBER religious? What a crazy place to bring the whole family! (Although if he ever decides to just go with that hooker, he should have no problem finding one!)
I also wonder what it would be like if I were in a Sister Wives situation? I am the most jealous woman on the Planet! I can promise you there would never be any other wife besides me because I'd kill her before I let her at my husband.
However, on days like today, where my tummy hurts and it's been hard to do much of anything because of how I feel, a Sister Wife might come in handy. After all, BSP is out working hard in this cold and rain and he deserves to come home to warm meal. Oh ok, that's nothing more than a maid and a cook but still, today it's looking pretty good to me!
Until my next rant,

Things discovered and/or observed, randomly...

Why is it when I'm thinking about future Blog posts, I come up with a million thoughts I think I will share but when I sit down to do the actual "sharing" most of it escapes me. Probably age. Everything else gets blamed on age so what's one more item? Anyway,...

A few weeks back BSP and I were super fortunate to head to Alaska to visit my In-Laws. And as a side note, what IS the correct way to write in laws? Caps? Hyphen? I digress...
You may have remembered this post where I shared my extreme dislike on flying. While we can drive to Alaska, it would take the greater part of three days to get there and upon arrival we would have to head back because of course, getting back to Colorado would take the greater part of three days. Pointless waste of time when, in just 5 small hours, you are there by flight. In preparing for the trip, I discovered I have not conquered my fear of flying. In fact, it appeared to have gotten much larger in the whole scope of things so I headed off to my family doc and asked for some medical intervention. I mean really, why not. I've been to the doctor so much these past few months, what's another visit? She was happy to help me out and off to Alaska we flew. I was pleasantly calm and can report that I did not leap over anyone's Grandmother nor toss anyone's child out of my way to get to the Exit.

Alaska is so unbelievably awesome. This is one of my re-discoveries. My FIL and BIL surprised us with an overnight fishing trip to the Kenai and this company took us out on the water. There aren't any words to describe how amazing the experience was. Even without the quick fishing trip, Alaska is a MUST. Go! Plan it! My SIL works for Anchorage Convention and Visitors Bureau. Check out their amazing web site and get that trip planned!

Last year the Movie "Julie & Julia" came out. I didn't have any regard for it one way or another until I watched it. (I assume that I am not the only one who can gain some insight or be touched by certain movies. Otherwise there would be no movie industry, right?) So this weekend, all of the movie channels are open on our Dish carrier. (UBER detrimental to getting anything productive done, by the way) I was able to catch the last half of "Julie and Julia" again. Such a good movie for lots of reasons but here's what I took away yesterday...I loved how Julie's husband was such a support for her in her year long journey. (For that matter, it really did appear that Julia Child's husband was an amazing support to her as well) I guess that's maybe a little sappy but here's why I love that. I am finding myself re-examining marriage again. I have a divorce under my belt and so does BSP. So when you go into marriage again, you gotta work ten times harder not to bring in the previous crap from the aforementioned marriages. Personally, I don't think I am all that good at being a wife. For lots of reasons but I will spare you the gory details. But I was reminded yesterday how important it is to have a supportive husband. Even when he doesn't actually understand or "get" what it is his wife is trying to do. That is just one of the great things about BSP. He honestly thinks I am talented and smart and can do just about anything! (poor deluded man) I didn't have that before so you would think I wouldn't take it for granted the second time around. But I do. See? Bad wife!
Anyway, I guess I don't care how I am reminded to be thankful for my husband, I just hope I continue to be reminded because I don't think my amazing wife skills are improving any time soon. Thanks truly are the best.

See, I told you this was gonna be random....
