2013 - I'm Gonna Kick Some Serious Ass!

This is me looking back at 2012, and saying goodbye 
I have a lot of plans for 2013.  I can't decide if I want to list all the reasons here.  If I do list them and then don't follow through, my failures are made public.  And if I don't list them, it's like I'm afraid.  And I am afraid, but I really believe in myself, and I believe in my goals and dreams.  My belief in myself is stronger than the fear of failure.  Failure, that creeps around,  just closes enough to whisper doubt, that I can barely hear - well it might as well give up, because this year, my dreams and goals are shouting so loud I can't hear anything else.

1. I signed up for  The Ultimate Be The Change Challenge  - I will keep you posted on how much ass I kick.

My list is much longer, but this one thing is so important, that for now it stands alone.

Hello 2013!

No matter how insane and ridiculous they seem...

This video and song is at the top of the charts in our house right now.

Saying OKAY is always OKAY

I read somewhere once that the best answer you can give in a marriage is "okay".  I have come to believe that this is so true. More than true, it should be added to the Bible or something.  No matter what Shug says, if I say okay, then everything is perfect.  Examples -  with my actual thought in parenthesis:

Hey babe,  I think the best way to make the chicken would be if you added more bla bla bla, and then roasted it with vegetables.

Okay  (Well look at me, I'm married to a chef. And since when did you know shit about roasting?)

Hey babe,  the cleaners is shrinking all the necks of my dress shirts. We should find a new cleaners.

Okay.  (Shug, necks of men's dress shirts don't just start shrinking after months at the cleaners, but months of beer and Mexican food after work at the "branch office" will make you weigh more which in turn makes your shirts tight around the neck)

Mec, can you believe how great that girl was on the Baylor team? She's an amazing player, I can't even believe she shoots like that.  And her height, I mean wow!


This list of conversations could go on, but I know you get my point.  It's just so much easier to say okay and be done with it.  It prevents a lot of conversations from going any further than they should.

I love Shug, and this is just one small way I show my love, okay?

Spring Break 2012

The kids just finished spring break, and so did I, even though I'm not really breaking form anything.  We spent a little time in Austin, San Marcos and home.

 I took the kids to Six Flags.  I was crazy enough to think that lots of parents still had to work so surely it couldn't be that crowded... I don't know what happens to my brain, but clearly it wasn't working when I had this thought.  I did think the kids were going to think I was the BEST MOM ever for taking them, and on the drive over I told them we could stay as long as they wanted - even if that meant until closing time.  You would think that I was drunk when I was telling them all this but I wasn't, it was like I was possessed or something.  We got there and it was SO CROWDED.   The weather was great and so was the time spent with the kids, but, the lines were crazy long,  there were about a million teenagers wearing way to much eyeliner making out with their boyfriends, and I couldn't find "healthy vegetarian food" for my 12 yr old to save my life (whose kids is she anyway?).  I did use her as a decoy so I could take pictures of weirdos.  And this might just be my new favorite past time!
What in the hell is this dude doing at 6 flags?
