Thank you Non-Christians! No Really, thank you!
*Disclaimer—not lumping ALL Christians into this group! So don’t send me hate mail or a theological _________________ about how you walk in LOVE all the time! It’s no secret that I call myself a Christian. Well, I hope it’s not a secret. I am and I say it proudly. When I say that though, I want to say that I think I am one of the coolest people you might ever have the chance to meet. But, that...
Things I Sucked at less in 2011
Yeah, I stole the title and the overall thoughts about this post from a blog that I follow—I admit it. But hey, didn’t someone say that imitation is the best form of flattery? Well, here we go! I am my harshest critic—pretty much about everything. At work, I can be hard on people (just ask them), but I am even harder on myself (just ask me). I expect a lot out of the people in my life, but I...
Scenario: First day of a 4 week introductory Karate “thing” for K. Anything related to sports, my dad takes him—according to both of them, “It’s a guy thing! You wouldn’t understand!” K: Oh Mommy, I had so much fun! Grandpa pick me up and we went on an adventure! Me: You did? What did you do? Where did you go? K: We meet a girl and I learn to say...
Tuesday Truth-day! January 10, 2012
*I will use each Tuesday to rat myself out about something! It’s all in good fun and I am sure that these “truth-day” revelations won’t be things people don’t already know about me! It’s been a while since I posted one of these, but this has been bugging me for a while but I didn’t know how to phrase it, so I have shied away from it! But here’s the deal—is the education system so horrible that...
“There is no charge for awesomeness… or attractiveness.” Kung Fu Panda
Quote of the Day--from yesterday!
Scenario: Was asked by my boss to pick up some big time/really rich donors in the electric cart and drive them back to main campus. I show up to get them—four 68+ year old men (all apparently residing in the Palm Springs area—i was told that they carpooled from the area!!!) get in the cart and we head back to campus! Man 1: Wow, that place seems to be poppin’! (referring to...
"Never Learn Not to Love"
So powerful… Such a great reminder for me…
I will admit it, this holiday break I have allowed K to watch large amounts of TV. For those of you who I see often, you know how I feel about the zombie box (AKA the TV). I limit K’s TV watching and take it away from him when he isn’t “good”. Sadly, he LOVES it and is thoroughly bummed when I don’t allow him to watch! But this break, I have really been lax! He has been able to watch abundant...
Who woulda thought that that woulda happened at...
I am blessed to work at a place that gives me the week between Christmas and New Years off, and that it’s paid! Not only that, my dad’s birthday falls during this week, so it’s been our tradition for me to take him to lunch (just the two of us) on his birthday! Since I have become a mama, obviously, K has joined us and my dad loves it even more now, I think. So, as per our usual, we went to a...
