♫ Random Monday: 8-30-10

*One of my favorite quotes (thank you Reese, for giving it to me, so easily forgotten.

Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of all those things...and still be calm in your heart.

*Everybody has problems. Every couple has problems. Admitting them is the first step...and seems to be the most difficult. Here, I'll be the first. Brandon and I fought over light-bulbs yesterday. Yeah, beat that.

*"Notice “what’s right” rather than “what’s wrong” and instantly experience more peace and love."

Two of my favorite tweets from this week:

*I am making the choice, every day before I get started, to chose "Zen!" for breakfast. It's in the grocery aisle, next to your other choices: "Flip the eff out" and "Angst!"

*You can't have Tools in your life without also having a Toolshed to make them all feel like they belong. Yeah, like THAT guy.

*There is a chance that my girls will be in dance lessons soon...with another Adorable. It's true, and hip-hop might even be involved. Ooooooh yeahhhhh.

*I'm so tired of laziness. Instead of pouting that somebody isn't coming to you, that everything is going wrong, or that you're not getting enough bold. The only way to find your place in the world is to break out from everybody else. Be proactive. Buy yourself new internal batteries. Your lack of energy makes me more sad than my kids' dying toys.

*It's ok to be so happy for me that you want to come sit under my shade tree. I'll share!

*DOOOODS, our Facebook page is SO close to 300 friends! Tell your friends about us! Daily Offensive

*I really want your bras. Please? Give Nomz Your Bras

*Sing along!

Yours Truly,

I love the quote about 'Peace'. I have that magnet on my refrigerator. I removed all the other magnets, put them on the side of the frig...that way I can focus on the 'Peace' quote & re-read it each and every time I go to the frig....AND STILL BE CALM IN MY HEART.

So true Nomz. Every couple has problems and fights. No couple is perfect. That is why there is counseling, anti-depressants, friends, blogs, chatting help.

But, if none of that works or neither is willing to try (and I mean really TRY!), then live together in your horrible world and don't tell everyone else about it. Make a change that makes YOU happy, or grow old miserable.

I love your Random Mondays!

Your Monday blogs are always so positive and uplifting - and they make us all think twice (or three times) about how we act.

Thanks for the reminders to 'look at what's right' and to 'quit being lazy'!

Hip hop dance lessons sound fun! Can't wait to see pictures!
