600th post

Way back when in 2006 when I signed into blogger and created "crooked eyebrow" never did I ever imagine that I would have 600 posts. 600 posts about, well nothing in fact. That is quite a few posts filled with rambling, poor grammar and plenty of spelling errors. Still, my favorite posts are the random thoughts of Crooked Eyebrow...

*Every time I see a puddle of water in the drive way I remember that as a little girl that we used to take our barbies out and "swim" in them. My sister and I never got the barbie pool we wanted, so we made do with rain puddles.

*I hate eating apples without cutting them up.

*Hopefully we can get back to the local apple orchard soon. Just their donuts alone are worth trip.

*I did break my diet and have a donut today. It was worth it, sugar headache and all.

*These past few months I have been in a depressed slump. I wish so badly that I could snap my fingers and feel normal once again. Unfortunately it's not that easy and I'm not quite so sure what when wrong.

*In a few short months I will be thirty. I don't want to be this chubby when I turn 3-0. For years I have been heavier and I hate feeling uncomfortable in my own skin. It feels as if the fat is suffocating the "happy" in me.

*My favorite cleaning product smell is comet. MMMM..makes me think of clean tubs. In fact, it's time for me to clean mine.

*How many people have housekeepers? I want to hire someone, but I feel that my house isn't deserving of it. Well frankly, I'm embarrassed of my home. It's tiny, older and I wonder if it's cleaning lady worthy. I only have 1 1/2 bath, 3 bedrooms, kitchen and a living room. Is it too small? I should be able to take care of it but I have so much other stuff I need(should) be doing.

*My puppy is driving me crazy and I miss my Chester. 2+months without him and it isn't getting any easier. The puppy is cute and all, but I'm not bonding like I think I should be. That and he poops WAY too much. I hate dog poo. Baby poo? cute. Dog poo? nasty.

*It's not Halloween yet, but my one neighbors put their decorations up on labor day week. Seriously folks, what's the rush? Even worse? Some stores have Christmas trees set up. I shit you not, that is just wrong.

*This past week I have been loving the sunrises. I could have spent so much time watching and photographing them, damn work.

*Speaking of photography. Taking the class for it this month has killed my mojo. Having to think about "technical skills" ruined it for me. I want so badly, more than anything to get better but I found it to be discouraging. I have a photo shoot this weekend for a family and I am beyond nervous. A month ago, I would not have even batted an eye but now I doubt myself.

* I went to Chicago last week, the most interesting thing that I saw was this guy. I'm not sure why he does this or better yet how he gets it off.

and that is all I have for one day...

I love random thoughts too. :o)

When is the big 3-0 for you? Mine is in January and quickly approaching... I am so with ya on the chubby thing. Only at the rate I am going I will be thin by FORTY!

I have been in a serious photo-funk for about a month or two now as well. I started my NYIP course, and I haven't done an assignment yet.

Don't sweat the photo shoot -try not to overthink it! You'll be great!

Have a good weekend!

Congrats!! We need to have a Bloggy meet up to celebrate your 30th. I can pick you up those delicious donuts from the orchard and meet you half way!!! I only like my apples cut also. I'm sorry you are not bonding with your doggy...maybe you should let him sleep with you and cuddle with him. Comet??? what's with that? I love the smell of Grapefruit Method!!
