Puttin’ on a Pondering Party

July 11, 2012

A few jots and tittles that I have pondered lately are worthy of blog space here and now.

The term “Know-It-All” is a falsehood.  If a Know-It-All truly knew it ALL then they would be aware of all that they do not know.  They usually need to know social graces, How to Win Friends and Influence People, and the fine art of sitting at someone’s feet where learning is had…. but then they would have to admit that they don’t really know it all in the first place. See?

Women usually can’t have 99 babies.  I was asked about this today by my 8-year-old, who is turning 9 tomorrow.  I did some quick calculations of years of possible childbirth x multiple births = not usually more than 99 babies.  But it could be possible.  But not usually.  99 is a lot.

We are all shades of brown.  It’s true.  Shades are made by adding white or black to a color.  You can pretty well mix any skin tone with brown and white or black.  Except newborn babies… they are red (and sometimes look like monkeys…. like my little sister did.)

Skinny jeans almost always make you look skinny if you were skinny to start with.  If you are not skinny to start with, skinny jeans do not make you appear skinny.  That’s the gospel truth, right there.

No people were killed in the making of the movie Gladiator.  Just wanted to throw that out there.  I hope it’s true.

If you’re so smart, then why are you still _____________(late, fat, at that job, mean, getting angry, making excuses, etc.)  Fill in the blank with whatever inadequacy you are facing in life.  We can all learn in some area where improvements can be made.  Find something about yourself to improve each day.  Start with smiling more.  Smiling is my favorite.

You WILL make time for what is most important to you in your life.  Wow!  Reality check time!

I need a vacation……

October 27, 2008

Now, I’m a busy person who usually manages a busy daily schedule like most busy women…. living just one step above chaos.  But throw in a sinus headache and I’m useless.  (See, the only thing I can get done today is a blog!)  In my mind I have an invisible list of what needs to be done.  Even though it should be, cleaning my bathtub is never on the list.  It’s all about priorities.  Today, nothing is being accomplished.  I guess I work best under pressure, but that does NOT include sinus pressure. 

This is not a teeny weenie sinus headache with slight pressure in your eyebrows and under your eyes.  This is a professional-scale sinus headache where all your top teeth ache and it hurts every time you move your eyes.  So far, over the counter drugs are having no affect.  I’m ready for Rick’s after surgery pain killers….  not that I would ever do that because it’s against the law.  But when I’m under sinus pressure, the illegal becomes a logical step toward normalcy.

Anyway, there are things that still must be done… lesson planning, sewing by 7:00 tonight for Bags for Zaza and house straightening for class tomorrow.  Feeding the children didn’t even make the list tonight.  It’s a MUST DO list with no extras added. 

I hope, dear reader, you are having a stress-free and sinus-pressure-free day.  They are so much better than THIS nonsense.
