I Am So Normal

What made me think of this? I have no idea but I was standing in my kitchen just now thinking about how normal I am. That’s weird. I’m not sure I like it. Realizing it might suggest that I need to change it up a bit…but I don’t really know what that means.

While drinking my coffee and making my water, I thought about:

What do I need to accomplish today?

What do I want to write about and what if I don’t want to write?

I lack structure and I’m procrastinating a lot lately.

I’m not super predictable (however, I am reliable) and do I change that?

I’m comfortable spending a day or days entirely by myself but why don’t I get the opportunity and what can I do about it?

This cup of coffee tastes so incredible right now.

My head aches from the wine I drank last night when my friends were over for dinner and why do I get talked into that extra glass?

It’s sad that someone younger than me has passed away from self-destruction or anything for that matter.

How can so much go through my head in only moments?

I just called myself weird for the second time before 9am because I realize I do the same thing every morning after I hit the coffee shop (therefore, I am predictable). I make my water.

What’s my water? It’s called “Sassy Water” but my daughter, who thinks I’m nuts BTW, calls it “Flirty Girl Water”. I have know idea how she came up with that name.

It’s one sliced cucumber, one sliced lemon, 12 torn mint leaves, a tablespoon of grated fresh ginger and a big pitcher of water (2 quarts). Now for the good part…drink the whole thing in one day. I’m addicted to it but I also need to know where every bathroom is when I’m out just like a toddler being potty trained!

This is probably TMI but…one of my goals is to pee clear every day. You can say it now too. She’s weird. I apologize if this calls attention to the color of yours; it’s a personal thing.

But I’m telling you, if you’re looking to drop a few pounds, this works. Or maybe it just keeps me away from the Girl Scout cookies that were delivered yesterday! I think it’s all in the water.

I should probably spend some time rethinking the “I’m so normal” thing.


  1. Clear pee. I covet it, but I rarely actually have it. It's not going between CRIMSON SUN ORANGE TO GOLDENROD anymore, but it's not clear either. I've tried upping my water and cranberry juice intake but I get trapped by lemonade, iced tea, and ginger ale.

    1. Arnebya,
      You always seem to get me. Thanks for not thinking I'm a huge weirdo! I don't want anyone thinking I always look at my pee.

      Upping the water will do the trick.

  2. This post made me smile. I'm totally making Sassy Water for myself! Maybe it's the weightloss jump start I so desperately need. Good thing I don't know any Girl Scouts or I'd be in real trouble ;)

    1. Those damn cookies stared at me all day. Who's the fool that opened the door to that cute little girl anyway? : )

      It's really refreshing and helps me stay on the right track. Do try it and let me know if you like it. Thanks for visiting me.

  3. Sounds like the perfect post part beverage! I think it's great that you ask all these questions. Normal (or at least the majority) of mature women (I'm 52) are content to downsize and s-l-o-w way down. I commend any woman that goes after it! Nice writing :)


    1. Hi Leslie,
      Thanks for visiting.

      Yes, I'm fighting the good fight against my nemesis...gravity. I do like to workout and stay active. Love the results however slow they may come. I'm addicted to "my" water. It's actually from The Flat Belly Diet (I didn't like the diet but love the sassy water). Loved your blog, btw.
