Friday Funny!

For those of you who read my last blog entry I wanted to let you know that I was able to convince my husband to drive to Maverick and get me a cookie. He came home with not only one cookie, but every type of cookie Maverick's baking department was selling at the time...I love that man! I chose to eat the No Bake Cookie first and I have to say it actually made me feel better. As for the other cookies, I chose to save those and share them with my kids who were very grateful to my husband as well because who doesn't love cookies for breakfast. ;)

I am posting this video today in honor of my husband. You're my hero honey. I love you so much!

Random Thought...or Maybe It's a Question

I have not been feeling well the last few days. Nothing serious just headache, nauseated, get the picture. This normally wouldn't be a problem except I had to clean the house for our home inspection to renew our foster care license.Those who know me know I hate cleaning when I'm well so cleaning sick is not my idea of a good time. Let me say that I love my sister for helping me and my kids for doing their part as well. The inspection went well and we are now licensed for another year. (And now I have to go out to the car and bring in the four trash bags full of laundry I didn't get a chance to fold...yes I'm being serious.)

So here's my random thought. I woke up this morning feeling tons better, but by noon I was sick again. Tonight I am still not one hundred percent, but better than yesterday. I am still nauseated, but the weird part is I'm craving cookies. How is that possible? I'm sick and the thought of eating makes me even more so, but I still want cookies. Too weird.

Now I have to decide if I should go to Maverick and buy a cookie at ten o'clock at night and risk becoming even more nauseated or just go to bed.

So what will I do? I guess you'll have to check back and see.

To Be Continued...

Great Advice?

Has anyone in your life ever given you advice or said something to you that actually changed your life? I've been thinking about that today and I have thought of a few sayings that have changed my life even though at the time it was hard to hear...and even a little hurtful.

1. "You're not special!"
This is by far my favorite. My dad said this to me when I was about eleven. My mom had made me an outfit for school and my best friend wanted to barrow the pattern so her mom could make her one. I was not happy. I threw a huge fit because if she had the same outfit as mine I wouldn't be special. This is when my dad broke in with, "you're not special!" Kind of harsh I know and I know he didn't mean to say it that way he just wanted me to stop complaining, but it actually has helped me in life. I am special to many people, but what I got out of it was life doesn't owe me any favors. I have to work for what I have and most importantly I am not the only one in the world with pains, sorrows and troubles. We all have to deal with our own burdens.

2. Let Go and Let God.
This one is from my mother-in-law. I love this saying because I used to be and still can at times be somewhat of a control freak. I just knew if I wasn't in control every little thing in my life everything would have fallen apart. After hearing this saying and having her explain what it meant I felt so much better. It means I have to do my part, but after I've done everything I can I have to let go and allow God to take me the rest of the way. I know a lot of people who struggle with this because it takes a large amount of trust and faith, but for me it allowed my to relax a little and enjoy life more.

3. Do you know how much a judge makes? 
This one is from my mom. It was her way of warning me to stop judging others. She asked me one day after I had been particularly judgmental, "Do you know how much a judge makes?" I told her no. She then smiled at me and continued, "I believe they make a good deal of money and everyone has to listen to what they say." She then looked me right in the eyes and finished with, "Right now you're doing it for free and no one's listening." That's all she said, but it hit home loud and clear.

4. You are not a victim.
I don't remember who said this to me. My sister said Oprah used to say it, but I'm positive I heard it somewhere else. I am not a victim. I am and continue to be the result of the choices I make in my life. I really like this. It makes me take responsibility for my life and not blame others for my hardships.

These are just a few, but all of them have had an impact in my life. Do you have any sayings I can add?

Friday Funny!

It's almost the Super Bowl!!!! I am so excited and I don't even care who's going to be playing in it. I am excited for the commercials. I love to laugh and I am hoping if this commercial didn't make the cut it's because the other ones are super funny. Here's a little taste of things to come... I hope. Have a great weekend.

Friday Funny!

 It's been a great week. I had a major break through in book two. I am so excited about it, but most of the week I've just been enjoying my sweet baby girl. I promise to get some serious work done tomorrow, but until then I hope you enjoy watching this baby as much as I enjoy being with mine. I hope you all have a great weekend.
