For Once, Not My Fault

I was up early this morning with the musical stylings of Pantera in my head (Dont ask, because I haven't the foggiest idea why) and felt as if this was going to be a bright sunshiny day :)
Well, it ended up being a good day after the locksmith let us all back in the house at 9:30 in the morning! Don't even ask how we all were locked out. Just know that we were all still in our pajamas with no shoes trying to corral Princess Leia for 45 minutes while waiting for our savior.....so to speak.
The boys decided they wanted to take it easy around the house until late afternoon instead of rushing off to Nashville Shores right away. They have been at golf camp for the past four days and were tired of running around from dawn to dusk. We had a good time lounging around and I was thoroughly soaking it in because I never get to just lounge! We ended up plugging the iPod into the Mac that is here and danced like maniacs to some of Michael's music. Mainly all those silly 'line dancing' songs for lack of a better description....Cupid Shuffle, Electric Slide and who can resist a little tail feather shake to the Madagascar 'I Like To Move It'. We needed this time together and it was truly good stuff!
Oh, the reason why the tardiness of the post.....the Friday Fill In's girl was late and didn't post until after 5 p.m. I guess I could do my own fill ins but quite frankly...I just don't have it in me right now.
Tonight the boys have requested a big fish fry so I am going to run my arteries through their paces. Fried fish, my infamous hushpuppies (which have turned many people to the hushpuppy side who usually turn their noses up at said edible canine named food), and I will roast the potatoes.....one can only take so much fried food. I do think I will throw in something green....spinach salad or roasted asparagus (even though it makes your pee smell funny). I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. I know I will.... :)

1. Getting away is something I get to do the for a couple of days the week of my 40th birthday. Apparently, I am getting kidnapped by some friends and family and heading to an unknown destination. I truly cannot wait.

2. Waking up early and going for a run is a good way to start your day. (I dont actually do this but you must agree it would be a good way to start a day)

3. Coffee, tea or an extra extra large Diet Coke with light ice.

4. Tolerance and understanding in place of cynical and blaming.

5. The lights are always on in our house in some capacity. Mainly because my children take after their scared of the dark mother. I am not sure what I think is lurking in the dark but I don't want to find out either.

6. I do think I will one day be able to find happiness. I truly believe it will take a considerable amount of self-reflection first.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I am looking forward to having a nice meal with my boys and finding a movie to watch we all agree on, tomorrow my plans include heading to Nashville Shores, going to see Cars II in 3D and who can forget the fish fry, and Sunday, I want to spend another nice day with my boys and get home safely.

Hey, nice blog and posts you have. I really like the way of numbering thoughts. You have really great general thoughts that go together with a lot of other peoples' thoughts.
The sixth point you said you would one day find happiness. I recently found out a way that you can help yourself become more positive thinking and happier. I put it into a sentence: "Whatever feelings you have, add them together and you get a positive thinking." This one worked for me.

Rock on!
