It Happens...Whatever

Some days are just harder to "get it all together" than others.

I used to completely let myself get upset over "the little stuff" but now, it's not so bad. Sometimes you just have to readjust your focus and decide what's actually important.

I just shrugged when I couldn't find a single pair of hose this morning. Oh well. It's still warm outside. I will eventually find that new box of SIX pairs that I just bought.

I just shrugged when I used my daughter's conditioner for the first time and discovered I used WAY too much...and had to redo my hair...when I was running late. Hey, at least my hair is really soft today!

I just shrugged when I had no time to eat breakfast and discovered my "emergency" food stash in the van had suspiciously disappeared. Okay, that one was harder to shrug off. I'm a beast when I am hungry.

And I made it through. It was actually a good day! Kind of relaxing after the initial trial by fire.

Although, I just heard a rather loud noise upstairs. I suspect a catastrophe of some sort. I better run!

Or walk. I don't actually hear any screaming...or see any streams of blood...

I need to work on not stressing about the small stuff, too.

Oh, and don't hate me for saying this, but next time you can't find your hose....go without it! (assuming dress code allows you). Hose is old fashion! ;)

Hi Jan!

GUILTY! I'm very old-fashioned. :) I can't seem to help it! It's either laziness or practicality, not sure which. :)

NO HOSE? I don't wear it in the summer... but it was 30' when I got up this morning. BRRRR! My legs are turning blue just thinking about that cold air!

So, I'm old-fashioned AND wimpy! :)

And of course I don't hate you! :) I thought your comment was funny. :)

So what you're saying is... you forgot to shave your legs. KIDDING. I wish I could not sweat the small stuff, but I think my short fuse is genetic.

Chris said...

Hey Summer,

Your fuse is related to YOUTH, I think. :) Wait until you are ready to hit 45 in a couple of weeks. :) Puts a whole new perspective on things. lol

Yep. You're onto me! I HATE to shave. It's a necessary evil, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. :)

HA! Hope no one was hurt in that crash. Good attitude to have. Just go with the flow. Saves a lot of wear and tear on your stress levels and blood pressure. :)

Hope you have a great weekend, Chris!

I hope everything was OK when you got to the *CRASH* site.

I haven't worn hose in years. Shoot, I haven't worn a dress in years either.

I hope you have a great weekend!

You mean like a garden hose? Why do you have 7 of them?
I bet the noise was a falling contraban milk ((( smile )))

christen said...

Speedy, doesn't everyone have 7 garden hoses for their 7 gardens? Gosh, everyone around here does!

I need a glass of milk.

One of the benefits of living in WV... lots of mutants. :)

Besides, pink watermelons taste like chicken!

This will not work as a matter of fact, that's what I consider.
