People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.

Hi-Dee-Ho there neighbor!

Here I am for my regularly unscheduled stop in blog land. My mind is all a twitter, yet vaguely numb at the same time. Does that make any sense? Some of me wants to do and be, but most of me wants to slip quietly away behind my eyelids for a season. I'm tired. Not just "Oh I think I need a power nap" kinda tired. It is like "Stop yanking on my eyelids and fogging my head Mr. Sandman or I'm gonna bust a cap in your...!" Sumthin' like that.


We have had birthdays (I'm 29 now, my dad is 70, and Regan is 5), visitors (Jason's family came for a concert and Regan's birth family came for a lovely visit), a concert (George Strait, Leeann Womack, and Reba McIntire who was my favorite....she can really knock yer knickers off), allergies (My voice has been gone for 3 weeks now. Curse you Perry the Platipus!!!), and things of a certain nature that if I told you I would have to kill you (j/k:) ........but not really).

I keep getting asked if I am on Facebook. Have you not read a couple post down ppl? I hate time suckers and fb is THE worst. It is the little hairy nut sack on the rodent that's in the lions mouth. (Name that movie??) Seriously though, ppl can't go one day without being on it and what happens if they aren't on it for one day.......I don't know.....it has never happened. Maybe they miss the tweet about their cousin's friend's boss's mother giving her dog a bath. What a travesty. Really. You are friends with a bajillion ppl only half of whom you really know and only half of those who you really like. Ok, ok I'm done, but really, I'm gonna hold out as long as I can.

Did I mention that my hubs is a freakin' rock star? He seriously rocks my world. Best thing that ever happened to me. I finally took the plunge and started my ETSY store. I have sold 4 things, which considering the fact that I didn't think I would sell anything, is pretty good.

Well, this is suga' tits signin' off. Ya'll come back now, ya hear?!?

Way to go for starting your shop. I always thought that you should. You really are incredibly talented!

KaNdRa and JaReD said...

Toots...you have lost your mind!! When did you become such a comic?!? hahaha...and LOL:) Your crazy. So anyway...congrats on the etsy store! I hope it goes really well. We were listening to Dave Ramsey the other day on the radio and he had a caller from Utah...probably a Momo a.k.a. Mormon and she was saying that she brought in $60,000 dollars last year(net), her stuff selling at around $25 each. WHOA! Anyway she asked some questions etc. Dang! That could be you! Hopefully huh?
Oh and so sorry I didn't call Regan or on her birthday...:( No other excuse then I forgot:( I will have to call her tomorrow on my way to AZ.

You are right - how much more time would I have to do all the things that I want to - but don't have time!!! If I eased way up on FB. I don't do the games or any of that crap, but I feel the need to check it every day to keep up with people. Ugh! Congrats on the etsy site!

Brock and Rachel said...

I freak'n love you! And I never say freak'n! I could read your blog all day which makes me thing you should write a book! Even though you are right- the internet can suck out your brain I love when you blog!

Dawna Greer said...

Either you were having a super
re-e-e-e-eally good day when you blogged or a re-e-ealy awfully BAD day ;) Kinda hard to tell but since I don't blog when my days aren't going well, then I can only imagine with you at the helm, it was the former! Love ya tons!

So glad people are taking advantage of your incredibly creations on Etsy.

You have had lots of visitors, the most unwelcome being nasty allergies for weeks on end. That's enough to make anyone cranky!!

ADAMS FAMILY said...

You are hilarious!!! Your girls are so grown up and I can't believe Regan is 5...CRAZY! Thanks for your post on my grandma, I'm sorry to hear your dad has been suffering for 2 years, that would be really hard. The pregnancy is going really good, I have 4 more weeks and then our little boy will finally be here. Look us up...we would love to see you guys, keep in touch!

Have u heard of all the new schemes Fb comes up with to make $$$ on your Fb page? Kinda scary how lightly they treat your personal information...

Catherine said...

Deleting my FB account was the smartest decision I've made in a long time. I only spent a few hours a week, but now that I don't have it, I'm getting more done and making more personal phone calls instead of just messaging friends, and THAT feels really good.

PS) I'm so excited to hang out with you today. You make me smile, friend!
