Hi everyone sorry that I have been absent from the lj world lately. With Christmas approaching, finishing up at work for vacation, and my mother-in-law having surgery, life has been crazy. I will be back after Christmas and I have been working on my stories, I promise. Merry Christmas everyone. I hope that you have a safe and happy holiday filled with family and love, and a few presents too, maybe :)

Life is like a Chicken Caesar Salad....

You have to work through all of the fiber to get to the meaty morsels.

Thought of the Day...

Make the best of the situation that you are in...

I came home from work on Thursday and found that my baby girl puppy Casey had been sick and after a couple days of throwing up, a trip to the vet, feeding her every 2 hours, and some medications by yesterday she was feeling better. Yay, I thought to myself. I thought that too soon, apparently, as my baby boy puppy Finnigan just started getting sick today. Now I know what I am in for in the next couple days... It's just like having kids, the whole household throwing up and generally miserable. And to add to the whole mess I am sick as well with a killer cold.

"When life serves you lemons, make lemonade"

At least I am at home and not at work. LOL

Learn to accept compliments...

I recently read an article about how easy it is to dismiss compliments and it stuck really true. It is very easy to downplay someone's praise of you, in fact many times it is my natural inclination to do so. My goal is to graciously say thank you to the compliments that I receive and to remember this credo:

"the next time someone compliments you, learn to accept it and bask in it for a while. And show your appreciation by complimenting others for what they mean to you and notice how good it can make you feel"

Thought of the Day...

You know that you are getting old when things that were the end of the world when you were a child are now cool.

Here is my real life example from today...

I couldn't get my contacts in this morning so today and for the first time in 15 years I left the house in glasses. Once I adjusted to the lack of depth perception and minimal areas through which I actually had good vision I was feeling pretty anxious. I think that I was subconsciously awaiting the four-eyes jokes and mean name calling that I so vividly remember from my childhood. Instead I got compliments... ???? Apparently I am pretty cool in my glasses and all of my co-workers quite liked them...

Go figure... I was feeling pretty upbeat about the whole glasses situation until  I realized that I was officially old... Now I am depressed again... Damn Glasses!!!
