Laughter is the best medicine!

I believe a good laugh can make just about anything better. Laughter has no language barriers. Laughter can penetrate the deepest sadness, if even for a moment. Okay, enough with the mushy stuff.

Stacey believes it's all about the hair. I believe it's all about ones ability to make fun of one's self. Imagine if our Commander in Chief had a sense of humor. A sense of humor that is at it's best when all hope seems lost. Granted it's probably too late to make a difference now ... but, we can still have a good time.

Stella wants her groove back!

I've never like winter. I enjoy an occasional snowfall deep enough to sled and launch some snowballs. One a year is good. Sleet, freezing rain, ice ... NOT MY THING. Ugh, I have the winter blues!

It doesn't help in that my DH, who never has to travel for work, has traveled the last two weeks. I'm a strong woman. I can handle it, normally. When you throw a couple of snow days in ... A-Man and I don't do well cooped up like fightin' roosters! In case I had been contemplating doing the SAHM thing (which I know I'm not cut out for) the last to weeks have dashed any hope of that. I need adults (or at least a group of college students who think they are adults), I need sunshine, I need to not turn into a stinkin' popsicle when I walk outstide.

My routine is completely out of whack! I need to break out of captivity and do something wild and crazy! Maybe get a tat. Nah, that would hurt. Probably something crazy with my hair. Hmm, that takes time and money, something I've had neither of lately.

Maybe I need a good book. I've been wanting to read "How full is your bucket?" I feel like I'm living a Calgon commerical!

K, I'm done whining now.

What are you getting for V-Day?

I've always felt Valentine's Day created a tremendous amount of pressure on parents (toiling over the creative boxes for school) and lovers (the girls care too much and the guys don't care enough).

This year is different.

I know what I'm giving. "Dale: The Movie" 6 disc collectors edition. I pretty stinkin' sure, while we were first dating, Hubs loved Dale Earnhardt more than me. He's never really been the same man since that fatal wreck.

I know what I'm getting. I picked it out. I know, I know, it's cheating. But not this time. I found this site called From Me Tees. I really wanted a "My Husband Rocks" tee. Hubs was genuinely embarrassed, but I assured him I really felt that way about him. It was a great connecting moment for us.


The fantastic news is, we can all have a chance to treat ourselves over at Chased by Children!

So head on over there is a giveaway every day this week!
