And box filled days make up my life now… I toss and turn in my bed and worry about little things, big things (NO, I’m not dating anyone), and everything… then I remember that I should have prayed, so I say my prayer to the big guy:
“Dad, it’s me Jamez. Please take this away from me, I know it’ll be better in your hands than mine.” and lo and behold… it’s gone… for a moment, but I take it right back and fiddle with it…
I’m a fool!
It’s true, I know to leave it alone… but it’s hard. I’ll be the first to tell you: If you pray why worry, and if you worry why pray… sometimes easier said than done.
My little girl Mouse, has an odd reaction when I shave. As soon as I start to put on the shaving cream she starts to cry. Not a regular meow, but a whinning one… that gets on my nerves… and she wants attention at that moment too… like she’s trying to keep me from shaving… weird isn’t it? Both cats are loving the empty bookcases… I’ll have to anchor them to make sure they don’t topple over on em.
Not sure why, but this is what happened today when I set up the electricity for my new apartment. They start to offer to hook up everything else… cable, phone, newspapers… everything… I’m adamant… that’s ok… I’ll do it later… she’s like: but you need cable TV… really sir it’s no problem we can do it all right now… it was like when the DNC calls for money or they want that survey done… very annoying.
Words to live by:
Your fences need to be horse-high, pig tight and bull-strong.
Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.
Words that soak into your ears are whispered…not yelled.
Meanness don’t jes’ happen overnight.
Forgive your enemies. It messes up their heads.
Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.
It don’t take a very big person to carry a grudge.
You cannot unsay a cruel word.
Every path has a few puddles.
Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.
If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.
New Birds & Bees…
The mystery is gone … How was I born? The little boy asks his father – Daddy, how was I born? Dad responds, ah, my son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway! Well, you see, your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on MSN. Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cyber-cafe. We sneaked into a secluded room, where your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive. As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button, nine months later a blessed little Popup appeared and said: You’ve got male!
I’ll have a post of the first day of school soon, take care til then!
