When the Soul needs Laughter

When the soul needs laughter, its not one of those days we can laugh at a funny movie nor is it a day where a meme will do the trick.

Sometimes we just need to unplug and lay in the grass…looking up at the beautiful clouds in the sky.

Today is that day for me. Perhaps you will unplug with me and let your soul smile for awhile from the inside out.

Aging in America

Aging in America is no cake walk. I walked into a national chain store in the mall ( I will not say who it was but you can guess). They asked if I needed to be fit for a bra and I said “no thank you, I’m looking for perfume”… so she directed me to the section with all the body sprays etc. I picked up my old favorite and she had the audacity to tell me that the scent I picked up was for younger people.

Excuse me? It was truly a WTF moment. I was so shocked I couldn’t even respond. Afterwards I had at least a hundred ideas of what I should have said.

In what world do they have “perfume if your over 35” and “perfume for under 35”. I like candy smells and sweet scents. Yes I have sprouted some grays but I still want my cotton candy.

So to the girls that work at this pink and black paradise of underwear’s… give me my cotton candy scents and don’t tick off women of a certain age. We own jeans older than you.

Sleep deprived

Are you feeling sleep deprived? Still in school? Part time job or no job? Is sex on your hormonal little mind 24/7….he or she said they love you?

Well let me explain something your parents won’t. They probably just say don’t have sex. That’s like an ostrich sticking his head in the sand. I hope you listen to them because that’s the best solution but odds are you won’t listen because you have teenage hormones… trust me when I tell you hormones are not love.

So here’s my advice… don’t get pregnant. A child is a blessing that deserves happy and adjusted adults…. with jobs…that can actually take care of them….not a 13 year old Mom in school that still lives at home.

You think you are tired now? I suggest the condom aisle ASAP…just in case abstaining is not your greatest strength.

As for me, I’m thankful for my kids and grandchildren…but I was not a teen in school. Just think before you do it. Think. Kids are not an afterthought nor an inconvenience. Kids are 100 percent your responsibility. Not someone else’s responsibility.

I never promised you a Betty Crocker

When I married my husband I told him straight up I am never going to be a Betty Crocker but I am definitely fun and creative.

Tomorrow is Super-Bowl and I baked this cake. It’s supposedly a stadium.

This is what real life baking looks like. It’s not always pretty but it’s dang delicious.

The F bomb

Anybody here occasionally drop an F bomb? Not much here unless I bang my head on a cabinet my husband left open…which I guess is pretty darn often now that I think about it.

I’m also a huge candy crush fan. I swear it eliminates my need for therapy. Candy Crush soda is equally therapeutic, just sayn’.
