Since late yesterday afternoon, I've been a bit whiny. Whiny because I'm tired, it's hot, and I haven't had enough "me" time lately. Now granted...I've been gone the last two weekends because (a) I was on my bachelorette party with some of the greatest and kindest and fun people on the planet and (b) I was in Nasvhille with my two sisters, mom, and Keith Urban. Well I wasn't exactly with him, but I did watch him live and in concert. Which was great, by the way.
Ok so yeah, self centered-ness is one of my demons. As is, according to my sister, laziness. This statement was made because I didn't drive any in Nashville. Trust me Chickey, no one wants this girl driving on I 40. And if I would have driven...who would you have messed with while sitting in the back seat? Sisters. Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em.
Back to my point. So I had my lip poked out because I was tired and was wishing this week away so that it could hurry up and be the weekend so that I could get some much needed, much deserved rest.
Enter life being cool. This was written on the white board in the group room when I got to work this morning.
Bam. In your face, Laura Merrill.
Freddie, a co-worker and an all around wise man, wrote this for the group members to think on and talk about. I'm thankful that he did.
I love moments that remind me to live my life while I can. Life is short and we never know what's coming next. So there you go.
However, an introvert is an introvert regardless of whether they are embracing life or not...so I plan to chill out and recharge in the coming weeks. I'm looking forward to the upcoming months; lots of changes and new things that will be an exciting mixture of fun and terrifying. I plan to face them head on. And do what I can, while I can, because I can.
So what does this have to do to with you? Well I'm probably going to chill out on the new recipe posting for a little bit. Stop crying. We'll see how it goes. Chances are I'll get a good nights rest tonight and change my mind but at this point...I can't say for sure.
I feel like we're all friends here and didn't just want to check out without any explanation. I thought that might be rude. See....not that self centered, eh?
Thanks for reading, hope your week is great. And I hope you'll share how you recharge when you get spent!
P.S. I had this for supper last night...you should give it a try! I prepared it just as SB instructed, using 2 tsp of canola oil to cook the onions. I didn't take pics because my camera battery was dead and I didn't calculate the points because I'm lazy.
