UNPLUGGED NOW!

BLOGGERS UNPLUGGED

SOMETIMES, WE ALL NEED TO BREAK FROM THESE LITTLE GLOWING BOXES. HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN IT’S TIME TO UNPLUG? WHAT DO YOU DO TO MAKE IT HAPPEN?

I know it’s time to unplug when I have nothing left to say and what I am writing no longer makes sense even to me! I walk away and watch movies or anything else but write!

Enough said!

HUMBLE PIE NOT!

HUMBLE PIE

TELL US ABOUT A TIME YOU FOUND OUT AFTER THE FACT THAT YOU’D BEEN MISTAKEN AND YOU HAD TO EAT A SERVING OF HUMBLE PIE.

Well, not to brag but I am never wrong! I can’t remember the last time I had to eat Humble Pie! Oh, wait that’s right never! I never argue a point unless I know I am right and you know what it feels good watching someone else eat Humble Pie. I don’t know why people don’t realize I am always right! It’s jus the way it goes. I can’t help it that I know more than they do. I guess I was just blessed with good and sense and the ability to recall what I know with such clarity. That is all for today. Have a great Saturday.

BLACK FRIDAY

THE LUCKIEST PEOPLE

WHO WAS THE FIRST PERSON YOU ENCOUNTERED TODAY? WRITE ABOUT HIM OR HER. 

The first person I ran into this morning was my husband! Since yesterday was Thanksgiving he was off today as well. I, on the other hand, had to go back to work. I got up a little later than my usual time since I didn’t have to get the kids up and ready for school.

I got dressed and while I was brushing my teeth. I suddenly felt  a presence behind me sure enough there he stood with his rumpled hair and sleep filled eyes. It was a good thing I had already used the bathroom  because he scared me so bad I could’ve peed myself.

Unfazed by my knee jerk reaction he asked in his scratchy morning voice “What are you doing”. I looked at him with toothbrush in hand and mouth filled with toothpaste and said, ” Uh! Brushing my teeth”! That was kind of a no-brainer, but I forgave him as he had just woke up.

I finished getting ready to head out as the rest of my brood trickled into the living room. When I left both my boys and my husband were playing video games. It sucks that I had to leave my nice cozy home where everyone else got to be off, but me.

To top it off we are having the first real Winter day of the season. It rained all day Thanksgiving and today I woke up to find my car covered in ice since the temperature dropped from yesterday.

So not only did I have to leave my boys behind I had to fight the Black Friday traffic, rain, and ice. Man, this blows. It almost feels like Monday instead of Friday. I can’t wait to get it over with and start my weekend!

NEEDLE AND THREAD

TEACH YOUR (BLOGGERS) WELL

WE ALL KNOW HOW TO DO SOMETHING WELL– WRITE A POST THAT TEACHES READERS HOW TO DO SOMETHING YOUN KNOW AND/OR LOVE TO DO.

There are many things I love to do reading and writing are the top two. I also love to cross-stitch. Making something appear on the fabric simply by following the pattern is like a puzzle you see start to slowly appear as if by magic. I have been doing cross stitch for a long time now and I was getting burnt out on it. So I attempted to teach myself how to crochet.

I tried about a year ago and gave up frustrated, and pissed off at the yarn. I felt stupid that I couldn’t even master this little task when there were little girls on youtube doing whole tutorials, on the whole, thing. What? How could I not get it and they could? So a couple of months ago not wanting to give up I tried again. This time everything clicked into place. I learned how to do a granny square and loved it!

I learned everything I know on youtube it is the best thing to teach yourself how to learn crochet! I became addicted to making every kind of granny square and I later learned there are at least 800 different patterns for a granny square. Crazy right, to be able to create something just from a piece of yarn is awesome! I was never very good at art, but now I feel like I can make  anything!

I suggest to anyone that is wanting to learn a new hobby to go on youtube and learn how to crochet and there are thousands of patterns for free online. I can’t teach you how to do it crochet is something you have to learn on your own.

NOVEMBER RULES!

The only thing I like about the month of November is  THANKSGIVING!

The rest of the time I am fighting the sheer amount of traffic and the Christmas shoppers from Hell! Black Friday? Forget about it. I am still recovering from the 10lbs I gained from all the turkey and pie I ate the day before.

I don’t want to get caught up in a crowd of crazies pushing their way to the front of the line just to get that great deal on a new tv, or gaming system. I would rather pay full price than possibly get shanked in line by the normally sweet and innocent housewife.Ugg!

November is also the month there is no longer any denying Winter  its on its way and man, she is a cold bitch. Arthritis kicks in and the flu goes around like wildfire. If I can just make it to March I am in the clear!

However, Thanksgiving makes all the other drama worth it! To come together as a family and stuff ourselves to the gills. To be with the ones you love even if it is for that one day. All your problems suspended as if the day has frozen in time just to celebrate the love and togetherness. The tradition of the parade on the boob tube and even though I don’t watch it the FOOTBALL GAMES GALORE!

Yes, there is always drama somewhere, somehow but it is a day that is carried with you always and as for me I am always trying to figure out new things to cook and  bring for dessert just to see the awe on the family’s faces.

That is why no matter what happens, or how cold it gets in the month of November it is all worth it for that one day of family and togetherness.  That is why NOVEMBER RULES!

 

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERYONE INCLUDING MY FELLOW BLOGGERS!!!

GRUDGES HA!!!!!

I CAN’T STAY MAD AT YOU

DO YOU HOLD GRUDGES OR DO YOU BELIEVE IN FORGIVE AND FORGET?

 

I totally believe in forgiveness! Forgetting, however, is a whole other ball of wax. How can you forget something that has been done to you? Sometimes something so heinous that you are traumatized over it for life! There is no  forgetting that one moment that changed the way you viewed life forever.

Turn the other cheek? Why so they can slap me on the other side to match my now stinging face? I don’t think so! It has taken me a lot of therapy and soul searching just to be able to forgive you can’t ask me to forget as well! That is just too much!

That is probably why even now if you wrong me no matter how small you are out of my life! I used to mourn the loss of those I have lost, but now, now I no longer care I am a better person for not letting those that have wronged me stay in my life.

Those of you that are left in my life you know I don’t have time for liars and wrong doers and I appreciate you all the more for being my friends.

Grudges are for the weak minded and have nothing left to hold on to but their grudges. You will never grow as a person if you hold a grudge. Don’t let yourself be your own worst enemy. As I said in one of my previous blogs I MAY FORGIVE, BUT I WILL NEVER FORGET….

WHERE HAVE ALL THE GOOD PROMPTS GONE

LITERATE FOR A DAY

SOMEONE OR SOMETHING YOU CAN’T COMMUNICATE WITH THROUGH WRITING ( A BABY, A PET, AN OBJECT) CAN UNDERSTAND EVERY WORD WRITE TODAY, FOR ONE DAY ONLY. WHAT DO YOU  TELL THEM. 

 

What?  This was a bit confusing but if I got it right, I have already posted a previous blog called “Dear Harley”. That would be everything I had. The link is below for “Dear Harley”.
