1.4.16 New Day New You


Good morning readers!!!!

I ran into this and thought how appropriate! You can apply this to your everyday life, work, and friendship building. This year, remember that sometimes you should listen and not speak. You should give instead of receive. Most importantly you should find yourself before you could help someone else find themselves! Don’t let your knees get weak–pray!

Have an awesome day!!

1.10.15 …Messy Men…

what i want him to look like
Don’t you wish they ALL looked like this…?

 

I know this is a touchy subject for a person in my household (my husband) but I have to know:

Why not pay attention to detail?

For instance, I came home andĀ  immediately started dinner. I go intoĀ my cabinet to get a 9 inch skillet and when I take it out I noticed that the pot is dirty. Normally I’m the one who is in charge of dishes, and by in charge, I mean putting them in the dishwasher. I know I am a Nazi when it comes to checking for clean dishes and to make sure everything is clean before it’s being put back into the cabinets. What I don’t understand is; how my husband can put a dirty skillet away without thinking “hmmmm let me put it back in the dishwasher or let me scrub it by hand.”

Another example: In the shower he would rather cut open a toothpaste tube instead of goingĀ into the closet to get a new one.

I’m not too sure why my husband chooses not to pay attention to detail. I find it rather unattractive. šŸ˜¦

As for my last example–now that February is right around the corner, I’ve already purchased my Valentine’s Day card (over a week ago). How much would you want to bet that my husband will buyĀ my Valentine’s Day cardĀ onĀ 2/14/15. How much more would you bet that he’ll purchase itĀ an hour before I come home and all he will do is sign it? I’m not saying that it can’t be purchased the day of, but at least put some words in it.

Do you think I’m CRAZY!? (maybe…)

Well I leave you with this:

1.8.15 Stop the World

Sometime you have to sit still to really see the world around you

Good evening readers!!

I read this in an article this past week and saved it. It comments the following:

“It’s easy to live like a mouse on a wheel: you go to work, you eat, you sleep, you go to work again, and so on, and then it’s the weekend. Make regular time to step off that wheel and reflect on your life”.

Today, spend a few minutes daydreaming on your commute to work. Don’t interrogate yourself during this downtime; simply let thoughts emerge and listen to what your innate wisdom is telling you.

I did just that today! I picked up my kid from the sitters and just relaxed on the ride home. No radio, no singing, no noisy toys. We really didn’t say much to each other either. Not only was it therapeutic, I got a lot of thinking done. Normally my thinking time is in the shower…I’ve must have been a mermaid in another life with all the time I spend showering (thinking).

Mermaid
Still the queen of the shower!

I will need to incorporate this in my daily routine more often. Even if it’s for 3 minutes. Just like you de-clutter your house, work andĀ life; you will really feel like your mind has been de-cluttered by giving it some love. I dare you to try it.

Well that’s my rant for tonight. Hope you guys have a great evening!

-Blessings!

1.5.15 Sex

-Good morning readers!!

I apologize for not posting anything worth readingĀ for the past 3 days…I normally write it at night to post first thing in the morning, butĀ I must have messed with the settings to not have this happen any longer. UGH! As I work through the kinks let me tell you about theĀ spontaneous sex episode I had with my husband–

My husband, Vic,Ā is working nights at the moment, so he came home Monday at his normal time of 7am. He immediately takes a shower, and I thought he was going straight to bed. Vic tells me that he has to work day shift on Tues and needed to stay up MondayĀ for as long as he could. I get ready for work as he gets Em ready for the sitters.

I leave and take Em with me and drop her off at the sitters. The drive to work was not all that bad; just COLD. My lunch break is from 12-1, so I thought I’d surprise my hubby. I decide to drive about 15-20 minuets to get home to find him passed out on the couch. šŸ˜¦

sex

He instantly wakes up and asks if it’s 4:30; the time I get out of work. I said no it’s 12.25pm. My bladder was screaming at this point, so I go to the bathroom. I get to the couch where he is now slightly awake, and ask him to get up and brush his teeth, and to then meet me in the bedroom. As ANY MAN WOULD, he relieved his bladder, and brushed his teeth to meet me underneath the covers.

We had sex for a good 20-25 mins. It was AMAZING! The way he held me tight, the heat of my body against his, even the darkness of the room, made theĀ “session” just that much better! I am not a big kisser in bed, actually I’m not a big kisser at all, but even managed to squeeze a make-out session. YAY GO ME!

Once the fun was over, I ran to the bathroom to wipe/clean all the juices that flowed between each other and got dressed. By then, Vic was on the couch and I said to him “I feel like a prostitute where I come home for one reason and leave” Vic said “I’ll pay you later”. I replied with “YUP! With round TWO!” I immediately walked out of the house not seeing his face or hearing his response.

On the way back to work, I thought to myself “We’re constantly busy, with work, life, and family”. Sometimes doing these spontaneous acts is what keeps that flame alive. Ā 2015 will be filled with more love sessions than you want to read about.

As I conclude this passage, I urge you to do something spontaneous to your loved one and share it in the comments below.’

1.3.15 Baking

Good evening readers!

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I did a lot of relaxing and took frequent naps. I have to tell you, writing has become a bit easier. I know it’s only been a couple days, but I know if I keep it a part of my routine at night I’d get the job done.

1.3.15–Baking-

So I don’t want to toot my horn, but I’m a pretty decent baker. I’m not a BOX baker. (I went to a party once and baked a box of brownies b/c I was running late and when they realized it was boxed they didn’t eat anymore of them and said anyone that follows directionsĀ “can” be a baker). So just for clarification, I mainly bake from scratch.

I decided that I wanted to make chocolate covered pretzels for Vic’s squad so when Em decided to go down for a nap, I started the chocolate melting. I normally stick to one kind; milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or vanilla. I decided to mix it up a bit and melt what I had left of the milk chocolate (about 1/2 a bag) and did another half of dark chocolate. I added GhirardelliĀ mini kisses for no good ol’ reason. Once everything was melted in the mini crockpot I dipped my first medium sized pretzel into it like I knew how. My fork didn’t take it out the way I wanted to so I used my fingers. It became really messy really quick. I immediately thought 1. this was not going to work, 2. this is going to take forever.

Instead I only dipped 1/2 of it in the melted chocolate and I then decorated them with sprinkles and flavored sugar crystals. Out of the whole bag, there were 3 dozen good whole pretzels that I used. The broken pieces I put on parchment paper and drizzled the left over chocolate on them. I had all the intentions of taking a picture of the really nice, decorated pretzels BUT Vic took them to work and wereĀ devoured before I could request a single picture. I did take a picture of the drizzled ones. Take a look below. they came out really good. chocolate drizzled pretzels

Besides this mini baking adventure, IĀ cooked dinner, Em woke up, we ate dinner and played until we both dropped! What was your highlight? Sour moment?

I added a pic of my tornado and her sidekick Beaker sleeping together. Enjoy!

Highlight: Confirming my lost love for baking.

Sour moment: Dog peed on my duvet cover while I made dinner. (You’d think I’ve learned to keep him in the kitchen with me while I cooked…)
