#SoCS Aug 6/16 – Ex

Excuses – I’m always finding them, to explain why I’m putting off doing things like sorting out the kids bedroom… But I will do it, honest, it’s just that we have family over today for a barbecue so I need to clean the house from top to bottom! (Oops, see what I did there!)

Exercise – I’m attempting a lot of they right now, but exercise that will suit my knee problem, heel problem, and shortage of time problem. Today I may not get to walk, but my vigorous housework will count for something!!

Exterminate – I really am not into Dr a Who, so why did this come into my mind? Possibly because we needed to buy flea spray for the house yesterday. It’s that tine again… Thanks for the presents Sonu Singh, but we generally could do without fleas!

Extreme – I love that song by Extreme… More Than Words… Mmmmm Nuno Bettencourt…!

Existence – we are here… What are we here for? Have you worked out your purpose in life? Are we here just to exist, or do we each have a reason to be here? 

Extrovert – I guess that is how I could be described by some! It’s not that I crave attention, but I am not worried if I get it! I’m not shy, put it that way. 

Excited – I am, honestly, at the thought of finally getting the kids rooms sorted. We have four weeks of holiday left… Can we do it? As long as I don’t find any more excuses!!!

    Exquisite ex choices. I’ll make exercise excuses with you — it’s too bloody hot to be out and so I mostly yoga, and should do a lot more to make up for the lack of walking and tennis, but I don’t, because excuses 🙂

    Finding excuses is very easy isn’t it? I’ve promised myself that I will take better care of myself and exercise more so I fill my day with more activities to keep me busy doing everything but!

    That certainly is some stream of consciousness, Ritu.
    A veritable waterfall. Have a great weekend.

Shit Stevie Says

Good Shit, bad shit, funny shit, sad shit. Maybe I'll inspire you! Or maybe I won't... Perhaps I'll talk about worldly matters, or maybe my not so subtle obsession with aliens, or (if you're really lucky) I just might one day give insight on how to make the worlds best sandwich. Guess you'll only find out if you read. So sit back, grab a glass of wine (because there is a 100% chance I indulged in one while writing), and enjoy. Welcome to the enigma that is my brain. My name is Stevie Jackson, and I have shit to say.
