Figuring out all the world's problems

Happy Monday!!

How can a day that starts out with this be bad?

How can a day that starts out with this be bad?

We all complain about Mondays. It is human nature (at least all the humans I know). I’ve been thinking lately, though. Most of the time I dread or complain about something it turns out bad. Is that because I *knew* it would be horrible or did my attitude make it happen?

So, I’ve decided to try something new. I’m gonna attempt to be positive. Well, maybe let’s start with just not so negative. Let’s see what happens. It can’t be worse, right?

What is one thing that you do without thinking that you can flip?

So, I decided to cook some chicken in the crockpot today.

To the chicken I added soy sauce, brown sugar, hot sauce, garlic and garlic chili paste. That’s it. Plus, some mushroom rice.

Wow! Super tasty. It was fast and is basically healthy. Win!!

My biggest vain trait

Everyone is vain.

Shut up, you have something, I know. That one thing you will not accept in yourself.

This is the trait that drives us to exercise. Or eat right. Or turn off the TV. Whatever.

For moi?

It is my gray hair.

Not gonna happen. Not while I have the ability to fix it. For years (no, literally for like 11 years) I colored it myself. L’Oreal, please. It is what my mom did and it was cheap.

(And it looked brassy & cheap, but I didn’t know any better).

My lovely hairdresser (Lauren Hollingsworth owner of Salon 30A) begged me to let her do the color professionally. I finally gave in.

We found an awesome blonde (that Lauren Arnold still uses on me) and people don’t even realize I am a natural brunette.

So, there is my dirty little secret. I color my hair. I budget so I have the extra cash to pay for it — it is that important.

What is your dirty little vain secret? Tell us, you’ll feel better! Let that flag fly, sweetie!!

New starts


2013 is here. One resolution is to write more here. So, here is one of my fave pics I’ve taken just because. Enjoy!

Stormy morning cuddles

I’m. Not. A. Morning. Person.

That might be putting it mildly. But thunderstorms mornings? Come on, man!

Part of what it so difficult to get moving is Oreo. He wants to snuggle and I want to oblige.

::Sigh:: being an adult sometimes sucks. Better than the alternative, I suppose.
