Day 20 – Something to Think About

hand-814694_1280

According to Answers.com,

“The human brain produces approximately 70,000 thoughts on an average day.
There are 86,400 seconds in a 24 hour day.
That means we have a different thought every 1.2 seconds.”

I don’t know whether or not we have thoughts the whole time we are asleep, so maybe the actual number is slightly lower than that.

Still, wow, that is a LOT of thoughts!

Out of my own huge pile of thoughts that are mostly worthless, I pick a couple of those to share with you each day.  That means most of what I think about, actually doesn’t get shared. You are welcome.

Yesterday I wrote about comparison.  Not because I spend a lot of time thinking about it, but because I came across an article that really spoke to me.  I could relate to it, and I thought maybe you could to.

Here are some of the other thoughts I considered sharing, but didn’t:

– Why is my son sick when at school and the nurse calls, and then he’s fine once I pick him up early and bring him home? WHY?

– Why did my girls do their hair and make-up to go to soccer practice? (yes, 3 headbands)

– Is there even a point to a 4 year-old soccer team?
– Who invented Perler fuse beads? It was not a mom. (Do not panic, I vacuumed these straight into the trash.)

– What am I going to make for dinner today?  And the day after that?
– Will the nice gentleman that I had coffee with, call this week?
– Were those mouse droppings under my sink?
– Has “my” rat eaten the poison?
– Why  did I agree to get a hamster, and allow it to live inside my house?

– Would my kids like to watch the movie, “Back to the Future?”  The day from the movie is tomorrow, and we still need roads!

– Who could I convince to guest post on this blog?
– Do they make Elsa costumes for moms?
– What am I going to watch at night when I finish Season 4 of Scandal?
– Is it time to dye my hair?
– What’s my 5 year plan?
– Do I have enough gas in the van to get to the school in the morning?
– How many more days in October?!?
*************
Spend some of your 70,000 thoughts thinking about that!

  1. My Netflix binges are: Parenthood, Orange is the New Black, and Switched at Birth.
    My only random thought for today is: Why does the baby keep waking up for the day at 4:30 am??? That’s the only thought because my brain is fried.
