Ya win some..And not

Well today has been a beautiful day...Full of sunshine,heat and yes,mosquitoes..Right now it is a balmy 88 on the mercury rising..The sun is blazing...And I am now in the cool comfort of my basement...ahh...Refreshing...

The kids played in the pool..We played catch...My daughter has quite a little arm on her...

I tried talking the hubby into going for a bike ride...He does not want to use my bike because he says it is a girls bike..(really the bar is ambiguous..It doesn't look either way..And it is green..Not pink or purple or something)..So I told him that it must not be that important to him to get excersie if he can come up with a million and one excuses why he cant ride the bike..So finally tonight he said he was gonna go for a ride around the lake..But first he said he was gonna drop the rented video game he got over the weekend back to the store..Then ride out to the lake...Ride around the whole lake..And ride back...Well let me start by saying when I ride around the lake..I drive there..Throw the bike in the back of the mini van...It is a only bout a mile down the street...But it is fighting traffic and such..And I hate dealing with that...But he said he was gonna do all that...Well he left...Bout 10 minutes later he is back...He only went to the video store which is about 3 blocks...Maybe 4....Out of breath...Says..I came back to see what you guys were doing...uh-huh..Sure...I finally talked him into taking the bike to the lake instead of riding it there...So we will see what happens...And he refused to take a bottle of water...I mean it is 90 outside...IN THE SHADE..What a dope head..Hope he comes back in one piece...

My daughter said to me today..As she was bleeding from a mosiqto bite she was scratching...."Can I get a band aide..I am bleeding"..I tell them if they pick at scabs they don't get band aides...I told her I didn't think she needed one..She said she wasn't picking at it...She just bumped it with her finger and the scab came off..That is how strong she is...She cant help it..She is just so strong that the scab came falling off cause her finger brushed up against it...Yeah right ....

My son also said to me today that he gets no respect...hmm..Join the freaking club my dear....No matter what I do today..Someone is complaing about it...I have leanred that I can not make everyone happy..so I am gonna stop trying..From now on...I am gonna pick one person a day to make happy...Sounds fair to me...

Better go watch out for the hubby..He could be wheeling up on a stretcher anytime now....And then we would just have to pay for the ambulance run...Toodles

My driver in Turkey once told me that his culture said this about giving anything, happiness included:

First - take care of yourself.
Second - take care of your family.
Third - save the rest of the world!

It's a good theory, we have to be happy and personally satisfied before we can share that with others. I'm not sure how you're doing in that department, but I'm lacking - seriously!! Anyway.. I'm jumping off my soapbox now ;)
