On Sunday AFTER cleaning the two main bathrooms, the older daughter (17 year old) decides she is going to cut her boyfriends hair in my just freshly cleaned bathroom, I said you know you will be cleaning the bathroom immediately after you are done, she says I know mom! The husband says, it's not a big deal, she will take care of it, ok Mr. no one asked for your two cents right now!!! Anyway I maintain my calm, cool and collected attitude(this is so not true) and waited, she did clean up after herself, I was very happy that she did clean but still in the back of my mind I was still thoroughly peeved that she waited till I cleaned the stupid bath before she would go in and mess it up.
In the meantime the husband went out to clean the garage, he was out there really working like nobody's business sweeping, blowing out crap from the garage, straigtening etc.etc...
Well he comes in all sweaty and smelly and goes and takes his shower, meantime I can tell by the look on the girl's face she is up to something, and of course she was, the husband comes out to the living room looking wonderful and takes a moment to sit down, well in this moment the girl says I think I am going to SHAVE the cat! We looked at her dumbfounded like what????? She said yes I am going to SHAVE the cat, so we didn't pay much attention to her at that time, then she goes and gets an old pair of clippers her dad didn't use anymore, grabbed the cat and headed out to the freshly organized and cleaned garage!! The husband says, "What do you think you are doing, I just cleaned the garage" the girl says" I know dad, I will clean it up". The husband is grumbling and saying I can't believe she waits till I have cleaned the garage for her to go out and SHAVE the cat.. So she proceeds to shave the cat, she said that it will help her with her allergies if the cat has short hair instead of long hair...What??? She claims she cleaned the garage but the husband went out and was using very colorful language, I told him to calm down it wasn't a big deal... he just looked at me!!
So now the cat is SHAVED, her allergies aren't any better and the garage needs to be cleaned again...but we are all calm!! Oh and the cat use to have beautiful long fur now he has corn rolls! See pic below..Have a wonderful day!!

I know that when we all wake in the morning our intent is either there or not, but what would happen if we knew that just one person really thought enough to want us to have a Wonderful Day, well this is my gift in thought to all of you that come my way through this blog. Know that everyday I desire the same for all people, to wake up number one, to immediately know someone wants them to have a great day, to make the choice to be positive even if everything says it is impossible. Remember we give up so much control of ourselves already for one reason or another, we don't need to give up our thoughts to!

I finished my class I was taking in college with a great grade, our 22 year old daughter moved to Ohio, our grandbaby Eli turned 1 year old....school started, our 17 year old received her license and bought her first car all on her own....AND I have decided to start a sign shop on Etsy, this will be up and running shortly, all kinds of signs, my husband and I are both artist, he by profession and me just because I feel artistic!!!! Actually I have always been into the arts, I luv pottery, textiles, paint, wood, you name it...so I have decided to keep myself busy, such an understatement...I am so excited...for years my life has been wife, mother, everyone and everything else first and me last...now I will take time to really focus on the me, and I can say I have had it all, I luv being a wife, a mom and a friend, but I really luv ME to.....I am closer to 50 then I am to 40...now life has rewarded me with time for me, and my family is very willing to let me have this opportunity, and the husband is more than willing to do his part in helping me with my new business venture...I am so lucky...all this and no coffee yet!!!

So here I am once again falling behind in my blogging to be truthful I got caught up in this facebook thingy for awhile like most other people, but alas I have come back to my true love and that is blogging about lots of things and really nothing at all...
So here is my rant, I have just recently returned to college and I am loving it, my daughter had one of the books I needed for the class I am taking but not the other, so I went to the school bookstore and lo and behold I just about had a heartattack when I saw the price of the book, I thought they must of mismarked this baby, so I took it to the front and asked them if this was correct and they said yes, this book was a 150.00 for a paperback book.... are you getting where I am going with this, so I look at the book and think to myself it must have gold in it somewhere or silver in it, something is up with the book for it to be this costly..Still looking, and looking and looking...
Nope, nada, nothing just a plain simple paperback book with white pages and black letters in it that was it, I forgot it was NEW... I put it down and said this is crazy, I left the school bookstore quick and came home jumped on amazon and bought the same exact book for 8.95, and this included shipping to...did I mention that this was THE SAME EXACT BOOK!!!
I am sorry but to me this is crazy, crazy, one I don't get financial aid for school it comes straight out of my hubby's wallet into my wallet and into the school's wallet, what the heck schools not everyone is eligible for assistance, I think that this is a big rip off for the school bookstore to do this to students or anyone else for that matter, how the heck can anyone who has to pay for school and books out of their own pocketbook ever afford any type of education!!!! Ok I am done, I hope everyone has a wonderful day.... : )
