Almost 2018???

Hey guys, welcome back to just me being random.  Actually, it’s not just me being random.  It’s me being amazing.  Anyway, that’s enough of that stuff.  I’m terrible at introductions, aren’t I?

So, I’m showing you one thing I (sorta) enjoy with my family.


Yep!  Mexican domino train game.  We all enjoy playing this easy, fun, and yet challenging game.  Here are my pieces.  We started with double blanks, so thankfully I pulled a blank!

My dad challenged me and said,

“Amie, watch and see how real domino players play.”

Of course, I had to beat him after that challenge!


“I’m only taking a picture of your coffee, brother!”  #secretlyspying #akacheating


Oh, happy spur!  Oh, happy spur!  Help me win this game today!

Ahem, it didn’t really help but ah well.  You win some you lose some.


My younger sisters made this domino trail to eternity.  Aren’t little sisters fun?  I only wish I could walk on it.  (Believe me, I tried)


This was my sister’s ingenious way of making sure I didn’t cheat.  Humph.  Well, it worked.  This was the only time I could sneak a picture of her tiles…lying flat.


Here’s my sad face because yes, MY DAD BEAT ME!!!!  WHAT???  That was not supposed to happen.  And, of course, he had to do his victory dance, flaunting his V’s for victory.  *Sadly shakes head*  Dad….


Okay, so it’s almost 2018 and you’re all reading tons of posts about resolutions, goals, and I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!s.  The funny thing is that I can and can’t believe it.  Half of me is like,

“I can’t wait to see what fun, trials, and blessings are awaiting in 2018.”  But at the same time I’m like,

“What?  It’s just 2017!  There hasn’t been enough time to do anything.”

But the largest feeling that’s taking over my mind is…

What will the future think of 2017?  What will all future generations look back on 2017 as?  Will it be a beginning…or an end?  Will it just not be very important?  Or will all future generations wish they lived during it?

Such sobering questions!  I don’t even know and I lived during it!


Sure, I have a few goals, but they aren’t very important.  This year, I failed all my resolutions. (Who can relate?)  But I’m not huge on them anyway.

What do you think 2017 will be remembered for?  Have you ever played Mexican domino train?

      Oh yes, it is absolutely boring if you aren’t playing with me…just kidding. It’s fun either way!
      I wish I could watch one of your horse shows! (I’m not huge for triathlons though…)

        Usually Mom gets to stay for part of the horse show, so I will have to make sure she gets some videos of me riding, and then I can e-mail them to you or something. 🙂 🙂

    I wonder if 2017 will best be remembered as the first year of President Trump’s presidency. I am glad you asked that question; it’s so important to step back and consider how we are affecting the world. Looking forward to reading the first chapter of our story!
