100th post and I swear, it was real

Okay, this is like my third or fourth attempt at my 100th post.  I just do not have any grand ideas here since I've already done that 100 random things about me list and the 100 item bucket list.  I am really not up to another list of 100 anything and I seriously doubt any of you are up for reading it.

I thought of going back through all my posts and picking out my faves but then I'd have to put a bunch of links in here and well, that would probably be rather annoying to try and read...usually is for me when I try to read someone's post that is linking me somewhere else every other sentence. 

So...I think I'll just wing this like I do just about every post I write. 

I am pretty certain that a black coyote ran out in the street in front of me this morning.  The boys were with me but neither of them saw it.  It ran right out in front of the car and disappeared into a cornfield.  I have never seen a black coyote but I am telling you that thing did not look or move like any dog I've ever seen either. I'm convinced it was a coyote and no, I am not taking drugs, prescription or otherwise. 

I've heard that old superstition about a black cat crossing your path and bringing bad luck.  What the heck does it mean for a black coyote to cross your path?

I think it's a good thing I'm not superstitious.  I did do a search about black coyotes but didn't find much information about them so I will declare right here and now that seeing a black coyote is a good omen.  Now it's in writing on the internet so it must be true, right?

I'm gonna need some good luck to get me through the next few weeks.  School starts back here Wednesday which means we have to GET UP EARLY.  The boys and I, mostly the Dracenator and myself, are not morning people.  We have Morning Bear Syndrome.  I just made that up...MBS...maybe I can get one of the big drug companies behind this and create a brand new drug that will promise to have us leaping out of bed with smile and song every morning. 

Of course, the side effects will include nausea, headaches, irritability, toenail fungus, inexplainable weight gain, warts on the hands and feet, loose stools, dizziness, the inability to operate a motor vehicle or other heavy machinery and hallucinations such as black coyotes.  Don't you just love those little disclosures at the end of those sunshine and rainbow drug commercials?

Anyway, back to what I was starting back. The good news is, there will now be 7 less hours a day that I will have to play referee between the loving brothers and I can maybe actually make it to the gym more than once every two weeks and write some blog posts that don't sound like they were written by a schizophrenic. 

Y'all believe me about the black coyote, right?  ;)


  1. I totally believe you about the black coyote. And the side effects that accompany happy pills? So not fair. I can't wait til my kids go back to school too. I need to start hitting that treadmill!
    Thanks for stopping by the other day.

    Kristi, Live and Love...Out Loud

  2. Oh I've seen stranger things than a black coyote. So totally believe you. And considering I could really use some good luck around here these days...send one across my path would ya?



  3. A black coyote has got to be a good omen:)

    Our kids have been back in school 8 glorious days. Last Friday started to feel normal. I'm not getting in bed at 9 now. And, I'm almost used to getting up at 6. The home work is about to kill me. And, all the schedules are crazy.

    Tomorrow I start back into my running and Bible study routine. I love a schedule:)

    Happy 100th blog.
