What Goes Around Comes Around

After working for a pointless 2 hours this morning, I spent the day with this beauty...
And this stud muffin, watching Inspector Gadget, Pink Panther and, what else, Cars!
Even with all the excitement of having the kids here life still happens.
I feel like I have felt some of my own medicine shoved down my throat the past couple of days.
No bueno!
It's amazing how so much can change over a 3 day period.
Change.... uughhhhh.
Today has been one of those days... the ones you just want to be over.
"Remember it is important at times to focus on your direction rather than your location, especially when your location sucks!"

Here is this post's song. (yes ally, i stole it from you)

Short and Sweet

Haven't posted for a very long time... it seems.
Nothing much to blog about.
My sister and her kids are here for a month! It has been so much fun having them here. Seeing how much they have changed over the year I haven't been able to see them. I will post when I have pictures. But I have taught Afton (2 yr. old) how to throw rocks in the ocean! Better than teaching her how to spit.... which may still come.....

I start tutoring again tomorrow. Not gonna lie, I have enjoyed staying up late and sleeping in.

Found this quote while cleaning tonight... and loved it instantly.

"Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows"
And I really feel like this song fits into my life right now.
Have a great weekend!!

I was inspired by Ally's blog this morning (check her out, cause I talk about her a lot)
This has been a rough week for me. Lots of realizations and boredom... After reading Ally's blog post about timing I felt silly. Good things comes to those who wait.... in other words, be patient!!!
I realized how impatient I really am when it comes to waiting for that something good to come.
I realized I am kind of a control freak and that I can't nor do I want to control others.
That would be too stressful.
I realized that sometimes assumptions make an... well you know what it does.
I realized expectations will be met as long as they
are realistic and not jumping too far ahead.
I realized I am kind of crazy... might have had an adult tantrum this week.
(who does that? I did apparently) But I do hear crazy girls are worth it ;D
I realized I am a negative thinker when it comes to myself
I realized I let fear run me more than it should... if at all!
I realized I miss watching baseball games and flag football.
I realized I don't live by my own motto... LEAVE IT ALONE!!!
But realizing things is the first step to becoming better.... Can't I be better already?
What have you realized this week?
Hope everyone has a great weekend! My sister and her kids come tomorrow! Super excited.

Also tomorrow is Father's Day. I don't know about you, but my dad is the COOLEST. He quotes Nacho Libre and Napolean. He throws it back just as good as he takes it. He listens to Spanish music at 5 a.m. He digs ditches and gets excited about mowing the lawn. I love my dad. I couldn't have a better one! Love you padre!

Dream Day

I wish this was mine and got to drive it all day, everyday.

Ever had to deal with change?
I feel like I have had lots of change in my life... LLLLOOOOOOOTTTTSSSSSS
I clean at night...alone. Therefore I have lots of time to reflect on my life.
My thoughts for the past few nights have been on the change in my life.

Change is defined as: To make or become different; alter. To replace with or exchange for another. To transform or convert or be transformed or converted.

I feel like I have been altered and became different. For the better, but it hasn't been easy.
Ever heard the phrase... "Go with the flow?"
I have determined the 'flow' and I do not get along, like two roommates that just don't talk cause they despise the other one for not cleaning....
But seriously, I have been told all about the flow (lots and lots and lots and lots... Yo!) and how we come to 'bends' or 'forks' in it... as life progresses. I feel like I am on a white river rafting trip and am constantly having to choose right or left, getting splashed along the way.
But I am looking ahead. And being happy.
I am good at that.
In my new found... ness I have fallen in love with my new summer song.
Have a listen. I just love it.
I also love this song.
and this one

Oh and want a laugh... this song will make you FREAK OUT!! It is not what you expect it to be.... promise to not think less of me before listening to it.....

Needless to say, I am listening to a lot more country these days ;D
Hope everyone has a great weekend
