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  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 inconveniencing  “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.


Living my life with the gas light blinking at me…

Wow! I can’t believe that it is already Thursday and I haven’t made one post in almost a week. This has been some week.  Last week ended with Eli in hospital.. then I had the long weekend, a much needed loooong relaxing weekend. Then I have for some reason been unable to sleep the past few nights, so I’m running on E, but still too tired and no time too sleep! I hate when that happens.

I had a great weekend! Didn’t spend any money except, my loving husband gave me $100 bucks to go and buy myself some new clothes, which I did. I spent every penny and not one penny more or less. 🙂 But, besides that I was really good.

I also, have been keeping my workout schedule.. well, i really don’t have a schedule but I have been making sure that I workout at least three times a week. My legs are sore and I feel like I am gaining weight more than I am toning it all up… but I feel good. Maybe that is why I have so much energy and I am unable to sleep.. who knows!

**Today I had my FRUGAL MOMENT as I went to Target to get my son’s new script and was surprised when the tech told me that it was only $4! And, once again I snagged the free $10 gift card in the target flyer w/ new script. So I made $6 dollars! **

This weekend is the start of Football season, well actually tonight is the start of football season! SO EXCITED about that! I am a poor active Bears Fan! Which usually leads me to a disappointing Sunday, but still I watch and hope! So, that will give me something to do on Sunday’s which usually keeps me at my local sports pub “The Sports Page” or at the Helmsley a hotel resort on the beach a mile from my house where I can sit outside and watch football and take a dip if I get too hot or drown myself in Jack should the Bears be defeated.

So, now that the weekend is approaching again I am trying to get caught up on all my pictures and all the posts that I started and have not finished to post.
