My shake and bake chicken came out pretty good. I'm always convinced I'm going to salmonella myself when I make chicken. Fingers crossed I don't.

I'm wearing a maroon shirt, red pants, and with my newly dyed red hair, its just not a good look. Luckily, I didn't leave the apt today.

Its thundering and lightning really loud. And normally I love a thunderstorm. But I'm a bit freaked out by this one.

I finished watching Christopher Robin. It was cute.

I'm not quite sure what to do with myself. We are going on vacation soon. I could pack. I've been doing so. I take awhile. Packing to me is like solving a big puzzle. Finding all the stuff I need, them making them all fit together, in an organized way. Its fun. But a challenge.

If you looked at my luggage you'd guess we'd be gone about 2-3 weeks instead of 3 days. But thats half the fun of vacation to me. I like to stuff the car full of anything we could possibly need. Road bag with snacks. Things like games and extra towels, soft blankets (hotel blankets are awful), bibs and bobs. If i ever fly that will be so painful, to have to cut down my packing to essentials.

I've been watching Golden Girls. I never really watched it before. Its a good show. I'm running out of episodes I wanted to watch the spin-off, Empty Nest, next. But i can't find it anywhere. Oh well. I'll find something else. I thought about M*A*S*H but I've seen the entire series SO many times. I should try something else.

I have no one to bake for for about a month. Husbands summer class is over. But then fall classes! And I can make Halloween treats, and Christmas stuff, ooOooOOo. I should start trying to find recipes. If you find any interesting ones scrolling through facebook or such, do let me know.

Oh, also, I'm looking to download some kid's book audiobook for the road trip

What are some good kids books? I'm thinking like, 30 minutes at most, maybe like, 8-10 years old target? Just, more engaging than Hop on Pop

So far I have House at Pooh Corner

Wings of fire series?

(That’s too long, sorry. I’ve been reading them with my kid and we love them)

I don’t know how long an audiobook is- but grade 1/2 students really like the magic tree house books or junie b. jones. ;-P. What about something like a wrinkle in time or the giver?

Happy vacation! I love packing.

Ah! Short stories! Thats the term I'm looking for. I'd rather not do novels in audiobook form. But i like short stories. Actually, adult short stories would be good too. I like the fantasyness of kids ones though.

LeVar Burton does a podcast of short stories. They are all wonderful. It's called LeVar Burton Reads.

I thought I'd throw a little mortality thinking into the thread.

My stepfathers older brother died today, pretty much the same way my father did. Heart attack. His wife isn't doing well, as expected. Hell my mom wasn't doing well for months, almost years.
I wonder what its like for them, the men. Do they know they are dying? Is it scary? Or is it just, here one minute, and not the next? Hope until darkness?

It sucks. I think their father died young of a heart attack as well. My father had about 6 siblings, an older brother, younger brother, then a spattering of girls. I wonder what the younger brother is thinking now. Is her worried?
I've worried so much about my own husbands mortality since my father passed away. I saw what it did to my mom. We've talked, and hes well aware hes not allowed to die.

Anyway. Back to Golden Girls.
And organizing my music.

With my genetics, a sudden fatal heart attack is probably how I will go.

Everyone is going to die. It is sad. I don't do well with death, but does anyone?

My husband is much older than me and he will probably go before I do. But I don't genes are pretty bad, with the cardiovascular problems in my family. He is adopted so we don't know about his genes.

Anyone could die suddenly in a car accident or a shooting. Or some other accident. It is depressing and causes me much anxiety.

I would rather die of a sudden fatal heart attack than to have terminal cancer and know I am going to die and just be waiting to die. I really feel for people in that position.

I know it won't be my decision, but I go back and forth on how I'd prefer to die.

My friend died last summer of an aneurysm in his sleep.

Kind of nice to not have any awareness. Just dead.

But then I don't really want to miss out on my death. You only get one. Might want some time to slowly get sick and think about the upcoming mortality and make some peace with it?

My dad died in an accident and there were no witnesses but it seems like he was probably in terrible pain for a short time (seconds, minutes?) and had some time to be afraid and maybe know death was coming.

ugh, I don't know.

I am not overly worried about the inevitability of my death but since having my son I'm worried about leaving him without a mom.

Since my father died i am MUCH more aware of those i loves mortality. Mine, not so much. But losing my husband terrifies me. My mom. My sister. People i wouldn't expect to lose yet.
I am also trying to prepare/ steel myself for my grandparents (94 and 85) and my pups (14 and 15) passing away.
I don't think about it often really.
But when i do its overwhelming.

I've had two heart attacks. They're not really painful. More scary because it's difficult to breathe. Having angioplasty isn't fun. It takes about 6 months afterward before you feel normal again. Both times instacare said i had pneumonia shortly before the heart attacks so I didn't even know i was having them. Just thought the pneumonia was really kicking my butt.
