My Random Thoughts – 5/30/16

image credit:

This past week my mind has been all of over the place.  Here are a few of my random thoughts:

  1.  Bentley has an ingrown dew claw on his back foot.  I am a little perturbed at our groomer as they are supposed to take care of trimming all of his nails.  Now we have to take him to the vet to have a procedure done to fix the problem.
  2. Today is Memorial Day and my mind is focused on all the soldiers who have died for our country.  I have been on a WWII kick lately so the visions of war are fresh in my mind.
  3. This past weekend Dream Big surpassed 10,000 followers.  Each new milestone is so humbling and I am grateful for everyone who visits, reads, comments, likes and follows my page.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
  4. It is that time of year for a beach trip!!  We don’t know when we are going, but I am looking forward to visiting the USS Wilmington and Southport, NC!
  5. Evelina has graduated from Charlotte School of Law and now will begin her prep for the BAR exam.  I’m not sure which one is a bigger accomplishment?!
  6. I still cannot get my mind focused properly for eating better.  I am not saying that I am engorging myself with tons of junk food, but I am not seeing the results I want.  I am not sure why the desire is not there and I better find some motivation and inspiration soon or I’ll start ballooning up.
  7. In the fall of 2014 I feel on the stairs in our house and injured my left shoulder trying to catch myself and it seems surgery might be in my near future.  I had my right shoulder fixed in 2009 and it is not pleasant.
  8. I cannot believe the Warriors have tied the series with Oklahoma City at 3-3!  Game 7 tonight and I must say I am pulling for the Charlotte native.
  9. Once again, thank you so much to everyone that reads and visits my page.  I am so appreciative and humbled.  🙂

  1. Congrats on all of the followers! It is well deserved and you are definitely one of my favourite bloggers 🙂 Also, congrats to your lovely wife! Both are wonderful accomplishments and I wish her luck on her exam.

    Poor Bentley 🙁 When we got our dog, his dewclaws were removed in the front and back. I remember finding that odd, but I’ve heard so many stories of dewclaws getting caught on things or infected, so I’m glad that they are gone.

    I haven’t been feeling motivated on my weight loss/fitness/health journey lately either. I sat down last night and wrote out a plan for the week, including all meals, snacks, and workouts. Now I just need to care enough to follow it!

    I hope that you don’t need surgery. My friend is recovering from a shoulder surgery at the moment and it doesn’t look pleasant (well, no surgery is). And I hope you have a great time at the beach! We aren’t going away this year since we just bought a cottage, so we will be spending all of our time up there.

    Have a great day! Cheers,


    1. Thank you Scarlet. I wish we would have had Bentley’s claws removed. If we get him a puppy friend soon I will have his/her dew claws removed. And I will pass along your kind words to Evelina! Have a great day!

  2. Thank you for being there to make me smile, keeping life fun is hard but you manage it. Congrats to your wife on her amazing achievement and good luck with the bar exam. Now that she’s a fully qualified liar (oops lawyer) does this bode well for your joint finances? Keep up the great blog and you will soon have 100,000 followers, lol.

    1. Thanks Dave! I think the impact on our finances will happen once she passes the BAR. lol I told all my friends that I plan on living the American dream by suing everyone! lol

      1. Lol, start by suing the Government if by some amazing piece of bad luck you launch Donald Trump on the rest of us. Just remember 9/11 happened when you gave us George W Bush. 😄

      2. Suing the government is pointless. They are going to do what they want to do regardless. And the Trumpster is going to fix everything, haven’t you been watching his news clips? (sarcasm)

      3. Politicians and “businessmen” alike. Do they really need to be told why we don’t believe a single word they say? Can they be that stupid? Best of a bad bunch get into power both sides of the pond and sometimes not even the best!

      4. Clinton seems like the least damaging choice from here. But I’m just glad I don’t get to choose 🙂 I hope we make the right choice and remain in our referendum in just over two weeks.
