Spit Fire than Put me out!

I decided to start the PostADay2011 Challenge in The Daily Post. 😉 I know I can stick through it! Lets get started…

When you get mad, what calms you down? Why? Has this changed as you’ve gotten older?

This really depends on how mad I get. If it is to the point of my emotions going crazy and I am near the point of breaking out in tears than I call one of my best friends. Talking about the situation and seeing it from a different point of view helps me realize that I’m not the only one. It also helps me see rather I was right or wrong about what happened.

Also, If I am just mad over something I shouldn’t be.. Then I just plug up my headphones and jam out to some awesome music. That loud screaming, metal rock, or Rap music, the type of music you sing at the top of lungs and eventually feel better about yourself.

This hasn’t really changed as I have grown older. The only thing that has changed, I guess, is the fact that now I have more of a backbone, and I don’t let people push me as easily.

A Date Night

Hubby and I ventured out yesterday (Friday). Before we went out I was working in my yard. Hubby kept telling me I need to hurry we have bad weather coming through. Well, BLAH! I wanted to get all this done, since I have more of my flowerbeds done, now I just need to get to weeding out grass. While I was planting some more monkey grass, hubby was helping with making the holes bigger, and dividing it up so I can just place it in the hole and cover it up. I got halfway done with my 22 holes and it starts thundering, the more times it thunders, the closer it gets. I was hurrying up, throwing the grass in the hole, getting dirt and placing it in there. I don’t think I have moved that fast in a long time. When I went to stand up, it felt like I was going to fall over. I don’t guess you need to be leaning over for too long, ha!
Anyway, we got half of them in Hubby ran Jade in, gave her a bath. As I walked to the house I could feel my phone falling from my boobs. UGH! My hands where full, a drink, wow I can’t even remember everything I had, hahaha! Yeah, so I stopped in the hallway and told hubby to save my phone. (I forgot I put my phone between my boobs). Hubby starts joking around about it and tossed my phone in his chair and took back off to help Jade in the tub. I got me something to eat (since I didn’t eat breakfast and I took my diet pill, not a good combo), filled up my drink, grabbed my phone and went outside to wait for them to get out of the bathroom so I can get my shower and get ready to go to the movies.
As I sat outside I looked at my phone, tried to turn it on, because it often just goes off by itself. I had no luck getting it to turn on. At this point I feel like everything isn’t going right. My phone is being stupid, my flowers are not all planted, and I still have to get a shower before the storm moves in. I watch the clouds and try to fix my phone, taking it apart, putting it back together, beating it, lol! I finally stood up to take it to hubby. While I stood up, the chair I was sitting in fell off the porch, due to a little gust of wind and my legs pushed it back since I stepped back before going forward.
I gave my phone to my hubby and he put my sim card in his phone, handed me his phone and tried to fix my phone. (No Luck with my phone, Hubby says it has gone loopy! and for good this time) Sigh.
I finally get a shower, get out. I don’t even flat iron my hair. As I was drying my hair the storm started. You could hear the wind howling, lightning popping and the thunder rolling. I got half of my hair dried when I went to look out the living room window, right in time to see the lightning hit in the yard. It was a nasty storm, you can see pictures of what it did to Life’s Little Slices garden since she just lives 5 miles from me.
We get to Lisa’s house; leave Jade and head on our way to see X-men. I have to say I liked the movie. It brought everything together from the other movies. Some parts were corny, but what movie now-a-days doesn’t have corny crap in it? It was definitely a lot of action, and it was really worth it for me. After the movie I ask hubby where were going to eat, and he takes me McDonald’s, so I super size it, LOL! JK!! He did take me to McDonald’s though.  Not much on my diet, but I did only eat half of the burger, and half of the fries. 🙂 So, I did pretty good.
How was your Friday or your week?

Sweet On Saturday

Can you believe another week has come and gone. I think it is going by too fast. I haven’t got everything done yet, lol!

My SOS this week…

Life’s Little Slices
She has helped me through so much. She has taught me to stand my ground, don’t be afraid of people, be who you are, and never look back. It is hard to believe that we became so close in such little time. We have known each other for 7 years and now we even think the same.
Yesterday she even watched our little Jade while Hubby and I went on a movie date. When we got back to her house Jade was laughing, singing, and not ready to go home.
Thank you chick! You’re amazing, always!
Be sure to check out her blog! She has awesome photos, travel through her ups and downs with everyday struggles, learn her battles through school to become a nurse, watch her garden grow before your eyes, find out her favorite songs as she fills out the “Music” challenge, find out more about her through her “About Me” challenge, and watch the “real” her travel through her blog.

Have a SWEET SATURDAY everyone!

Five Question Friday

1. What is your favorite summer time activity?
I love spending time with family/friends, grilling out, swimming, and just having fun, and of course, reading 🙂
I really like big gatherings, music blaring from the patio, a campfire, kids laughing in the background, and hearing lots of chatter.
2. Do you have one laundry soap you stick to, or do you buy whatever’s on sale?
I usually like anything that will make my house smell fabulous. I am also allergic to some laundry soap, so I have to be careful about switching all the time. Right now I am using Xtra.

3. What is your favorite dinner to make in the summer?
Hot dogs, kabobs, Grilled vegetables.. anything grill related?
On my dogs though I just like ketchup on the bottom and mustard on the top but on the side of the bun 🙂
4. Do you have any talents?
I played Clarinet for 6 years. Now I can grow flowers, plus its a hobby too.

5. If you could instantly be an expert in something, what would it be? Why?
I would love to be an expert in making my blog successful, not making money, but bigger and getting to enough people. I would also think I would like to be an expert with computers, we all have them, and who needs to call someone else when You already know whats wrong 😉

Life is hard

Sometimes in life we are dealt some hard cards. The cards that you hold in your hand for years to come, never knowing if you should get rid of them, or keep hanging on to them.

I have been dealt with a lot of cards in my life. I always come out on top, always looking at the positive instead of the negative. Can you imagine how life or your friends would be if your life is full of nothing but Negative? The sad brought on everyday, or the smart ass comments that they say 24-7. I have noticed to make your life better for yourself, you have to figure out who you are in the beginning. You have to find your inner-self before you can get rid of the cards that you are dealt.

No one ever said that this life is easy, and that you will never go through hard times, or times that you will never cry.

So, for today. Figure out what makes you happy, and sit and just relax on that thought. Let the smile come to your face, as you feel what you are thankful about, or just call a friend/family to make you laugh. Everyone needs a time in their day to smile, laugh and feel good about themselves.

 Joke for today

A young man was walking through a supermarket to pick up a few things when he noticed an old lady following him around. Thinking nothing of it, he ignored her and continued on. Finally he went to the checkout line, but she got in front of him. “Pardon me,” she said, “I’m sorry if my staring at you has made you feel uncomfortable. It’s just that you look just like my son, who just died recently.” “I’m very sorry,” replied the young man, “is there anything I can do for you?” “Yes,” she said, “As I’m leaving, can you say ‘Good bye, Mother’? It would make me feel so much better.” “Sure,” answered the young man.
As the old woman was leaving, he called out, “Goodbye, Mother!” As he stepped up to the checkout counter, he saw that his total was $127.50. “How can that be?” He asked, “I only purchased a few things!” “Your mother said that you would pay for her,” said the clerk.

Guilty Pleasure

Day 13: A song that is a guilty pleasure

So, I know we all have this guilty pleasure of knowing all the lyrics to a song that might get you the “look”. Here is my guilty pleasure…

Some people might say Hanson, Savage Garden, and Natalie with Torn, but mine is New Kids On The Block. My mom had a VHS with them recorded on it, along with Billy Idol – White Wedding. I have loved them every since that tape, LOL

Whats your guilty pleasure that you sing to, but wouldn’t do it around your friends/family?
