Five minute Friday …. View ….


The above was the view the other morning … had everything ready to go for chili and no taco seasoning. Oops. Drove kiddo to school, came home to make that recipe … and discovered that I had enough chili powder and paprika to make 1/5th of the above recipe. So I did. And then I left for work and I stopped on my way at the insurance agency because my windshield looked like it had been struck with a harpoon … the great white whale is now a small white jeep with an otter complex. Insurance agent is fabulous – absolutely fabulous –

Got to work … with an email from el jefe telling me that we need to talk about getting to the office earlier. Now my “view” on that is that I always put in an honest day’s work – it might not seem like it to the NoneYa’s, but they’re NoneYa’s for a reason – but I did what he asked and got there earlier yesterday and today.

But views are what they are and as the esteemable Mr. Betz always said “it’s all about perception” … or as The Orange Rhino says “It’s all about perspective”

Soooooo … as I said to (a group of friends) earlier today … I’m still working on improving my yelling – verbal violence isn’t right & I know better; and I am still learning. After all the time & $$ I spent in therapy, you’d think I would have 10 kids & all the answers instead of 1 that I still yell at; but nobody’s perfect.

That’s why I have to leave this on the screen … because my perspective changed 😉 there’s a new Bones on the DVR and someone special with whom I’d like to watch it.

Night y’all.

p.s. my view on my windshield still isn’t great – but it’s guaranteed so I’ll be having it redone.

  1. I laughed out loud (for real, not for internet-speak) when I got to the line about all the therapy should have garnered you ten kids, not one you still yell at. I was just contemplating yelling at my kid so your humor was what I needed at the moment. Thanks! Stopping by from FMF.

  2. Well, the good things is that as far as family. your all they need to make a dish delicious , They, never really pay attention as to whats really in it. But, momma’s love is all they need :)))) Lovely write, you awesome person !,
