Found a great post today! It kind of hit me because I have been a little out of it myself, with not a lot of motivation to wake up in the morning much less crafts or being frugal!

I liked the part about just helping someone, it doesn’t have to be financial but just taking notice of someone else that could use a helping hand or a kind word!

This should be something practiced everyday!


In case you needed another reason…


This article is GREAT! This article speaks of how having sex with your partner has many benefits besides the obvious, immediate ones! Well, duh. God gave it to us for a reason other than just making babies he made it to be enjoyable., and to connect.

I also, know that with so much stress in the world, just finding the time to make love to your partner can be like looking for buried treasure with no map…. Ā But imagine the feelings you get when you find it.

The article suggest that making love just one time a week can really help a relationship, it list that it is good for men’s prostate health, promotes self-esteem, relieves stress and boost your immune system… Just in time for flu season. šŸ˜‰

I do have to say that whenever I feel a disconnect with my husband it is because I haven’t had a REAL conversation with him in days outside of how was your day, what bills are do… blah blah blah! -and we haven’t had a good romp. The act of intimacy is indirect communication, and being intimate is being in that persons innermost parts…. thoughts, mind, feelings. And it feels *F-bomb* AMAZING!

It is easy to get lost in a relationship and fall into ruts but you really can see how finding that connect even if it is once a week is so important and if it helps me to fight off the flu, or become successful .. even more reason to get in between the sheets!


Being the bigger person

I’m tired of being the bigger person. I’m tired of doing the right thing all the time, as I am saying this I also, know that I will in the end do the right thing anyway, because IT IS THE RIGHT thing to do! But Grrrrrrr! I’m always the first to apologize. The first to forgive, to forget, to make amends, to say everybody makes mistakes, to agree to disagree. But sometimes I get tired of being railroaded. I bite my tongue. I don’t hit below the belt. And, yet some how the story gets turned, I feel guilty for a reason unknown to me and I just let go! Which is what I need to do in this instance.. JUST LET IT GO!!! but GRRRRR!

I have daydreamed though of screaming at the rude, un-hurried and inattentive waitress who brought me the complete opposite of what I asked for, but no Ā I eat it and still leave a 20% tip.

I have fantasized about throwing my coke in the face of the fast food lane guy who, obviously does not want to be working and could care less if my fries are cold, gave me the wrong change and forgot to put my screaming child’s nuggets in the bag and then argues that I even ordered them. But, I just apologize for inconveniencingĀ  “HIM” and I stop at the next fast food joint and grab more nuggets.

One day I’m going to do it. I’m going to just sit in the left turn lane until it turns green again when the inpatient person behind me honks for me to go before I even have time to take my foot of the brake and accelerate the micro second the light does turn green. I’m going to park my car, get out and ask them “do you need something?, because you couldn’t have possibly been honking at me to go, the second the light turned green?”

A girl can dream.
