I like to tell people I don’t have a temper but more and more as I get older I find I do. I am losing my tolerance for certain things. Since I also strongly believe that what you find disturbing to the point of anger in other people is frequently (not always) something you yourself are guilty of it makes me even madder to think I may be doing the exact same things that make me mad. It’s so much easier to go ahead and find fault with others instead of looking at myself.

But instead of ranting about all of the people in the world who annoy me, I will show you random pictures from my phone.


These are the pants I am rehoming. I bought them when I dropped from a size 12 to a size 10.  Two weeks later they stopped fitting me and this weekend I replaced them with these!

YAY!! The weird thing is I went from a size 10 to a size 6 without losing any weight. Nada. None. It’s all just adding muscle and shifting things around. I’m not very tall so it’s lovely to buy smaller pants because the length is usually better.


I did not buy these, but wouldn’t they be tasty with sloppy joe?



This picture popped up on my computer the other day and I cracked up. I don’t remember ever seeing it before. That’s my niece and myself in particularly unflattering poses!


Yay! I got my inhaler. I don’t know how much it helps but I’m giving it a shot!

I brought things in for Brad. A bag with a lovely surprise in the fridge and on his desk is another bag with a less surprising snack food. HE DIDN”T COME IN TO WORK!

So I took pictures of things, then sent them to Brad via Text,and now I shall throw them all away!

  1. I have been wondering about your breathing – is it any better?

    How exciting about the pants! I know you work very hard exercising. I am excited it is paying off for you.

    I am going to have to think about your first point because I seem to be irritated by so many people these days.

    1. I think the inhaler helps. So there is that. I don’t really like it. I get this weird head rush feeling when I use it. But it does help.

      the first paragraph references either an old Aesops, or proverb, or Buddhist saying. Once I heard it and noticed that it’s true, it stuck in my head. Now I really try to pay attention to things that are annoying me. Try it the other way first. Things that people complain about the most, is that behavior something that they do? See if it applies in your life with the people who complain to you. If it does, then you have to start looking at your behavior to see if it applies to you too. 🙂 You don’t really complain about things that other people do so good luck with that!

      1. I know it is true for me, and Craig has pointed it out with my relationship with David. D and I have a lot of the same challenges in life and apparently I was very unaware of that for awhile. I think I was all over him cause I didn’t want him to suffer the same consequences I have. I actually referenced your blog to him today when I had to encourage him to get away from the computer and get things done.

        It actually is a huge problem for me (complaining about other people). I have managed to keep most of it in my head but I just want not to see those things and have a better attitude to begin with.

        Thanks for being such a good pal. 🙂

        1. “I actually referenced your blog to him today when I had to encourage him to get away from the computer and get things done.” Because I have the same problem.

Don’t leave without saying something!
