Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff!

I received this in my inbox today, and thought it was worth sharing:


IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER – by Erma Bombeck
(written after she found out she was dying from cancer).

I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would
Go into a holding pattern if I weren’t there for the day.

I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.

I would have talked less and listened more.

I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained, or the sofa faded.

I would have eaten the popcorn in the ‘good’ living room and worried much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.

I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.

I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.

I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day
Because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.

I would have sat on the lawn with my grass stains.

I would have cried and laughed less while watching television
And more while watching life.

I would never have bought anything just because it was practical,

Wouldn’t show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy,
I’d have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment
Growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.

When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, ‘Later.
Now go get washed up for dinner.’ There would have been more ‘I love you’s’ More ‘I’m sorry’s.’

But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute.look at it and really see it . Live it and never give it back. STOP SWEATING THE SMALL STUFF!!!

Don’t worry about who doesn’t like you, who has more, or who’s doing what
Instead, let’s cherish the relationships we have with those who do love us.



The Power Of Diamonds

Who would’ve thought Diamonds could be so powerful???  The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Who Would WANT to Get Married Nowadays???

Oprah had a show, today, about men cheating, which was enlightening, yet, somewhat sad.  They had several couples who were surprisingly open about the affairs they had and why. 

  • They said they felt underappreciated with the lack of affection and attention. 
  • VERY rarely was it that a man would cheat with someone better looking than their spouse, but they gave them the attention and made them feel appreciated. 
  • Men are emotional beings, despite what many women think, it’s just they are not as expressive as women. 
  • The startling statistic is 1 in 3 men cheat in their marriage! 
  • VERY few ever admit to the cheating, MOST women will NEVER know!
That was just a little of what was said, M. Gary Neuman, who was on the show, wrote a book called Truth About Cheating.  You can go to Oprah’s website and download the book for free for a limited time, I did.  It just makes me wonder if I want to get married.  That’s a LOT to deal with, can men really be trusted??  I know I shouldn’t base my life on statistics, but between these statistics and the divorce rates, I’m really rethinking whether I EVER want to get married down the road.  I’ve met some men that you would NEVER have thought they could do anything wrong, upstanding citizens, leaders in their church and community, and it’s just very shocking to find out they aren’t the most faithful.
I did do some research, and looked up about women cheating, and it appears 1 in 5 have had a fling during their marriage, so that’s not that good either, but, in my opinion, in general, women have more self control, but if they do cheat, it’s for the same reasons.
Do these statistics shock you???  What do you think???

Feminine Hygiene Gone Lethal!

I was flipping through infommercials last night, and had never seen one for tasers!  I never even would’ve thought anyone could own them, I just figured they were for law enforcement only!  Guess I was wrong, and you can even get them in girly colors, like the one below:

They actually seem like a good idea, it’s not a handgun that could kill someone, especially if you are startled and just shoot out of fear, but it will stop someone in their tracks and give you a chance to get away.  If they weren’t running in the $300 range, at least this pretty pink one is, I think I would get one, you never know when it may come in hand.  They even come in tampon shaped ones!

What do you think?  Would you own one?

Drivers, UGH!!

Why, oh Why, is there always at least one female driver that makes the rest of us look bad????  Just today, I see a lady who doesn’t use her blinkers, swerviing, SHOCKINGLY has both hands on the wheel, but apparently didn’t pay much attention in driver’s ed!!!!  I, for one, am a GREAT driver, may have something to do with having learned to drive in Michigan, but weather it be parking a car, or trying to multi task while driving, we get a bad rap!!!!  Even I have begun thinking females, in general, are bad drivers!!  So, please quit trying to multi-task (talking on the phone, curling you eye lashes, or applying lip gloss all at once), and PAY ATTENTION to the road!!  And MEN, you’re not getting off here, either!!  Do you really think that cell phone call is more important than the other people on the road, or yourself????  You guys sit there and putz, not paying attention when switching lanes, OR you are in such a hurry, you have to tail th people in front of you!!  EVERYONE needs to SLOW DOWN and PAY ATTENTION!!!  Oh, and USE YOUR FLIPPIN’ BLINKERS!!!!!  The road would be a MUCH safer place if we all did!!!

What Your Sleep Style Says About You

Something kind of random, and something no one ever really thinks about…

How do you sleep???  What does it say about you??

There are six common sleeping positions – each is linked to a particular personality type.

Foetus

Those who curl up in the foetus position are described as tough on the outside but sensitive at heart. They may be shy when they first meet somebody, but soon relax. This is the most common sleeping position, adopted by 41% of the 1,000 people who took part in the survey. More than twice as many women as men tend to adopt this position.

Log

Lying on your side with both arms down by your side. These sleepers are easy going, social people who like being part of the in-crowd, and who are trusting of strangers. However, they may be gullible.

Yearner

People who sleep on their side with both arms out in front are said to have an open nature, but can be suspicious, cynical. They are slow to make up their minds, but once they have taken a decision, they are unlikely ever to change it.

Soldier

Lying on your back with both arms pinned to your sides. People who sleep in this position are generally quiet and reserved. They don’t like a fuss, but set themselves and others high standards.

Freefall

Lying on your front with your hands around the pillow, and your head turned to one side. Often gregarious and brash people, but can be nervy and thin-skinned underneath, and don’t like criticism, or extreme situations.

Starfish

Lying on your back with both arms up around the pillow. These sleepers make good friends because they are always ready to listen to others, and offer help when needed. They generally don’t like to be the centre of attention.

The remainder of those in the poll said the position they fell asleep varied or did not know.

They also examined the effect of various sleeping positions on health. He concluded that the freefall position was good for digestion, while the starfish and soldier positions were more likely to lead to snoring and a bad night’s sleep.

“Lying down flat means that stomach contents can more readily be worked back up into the mouth, while those who lie on their back may end up snoring and breathing less well during the night. “Both these postures may not necessarily awaken the sleeper but could cause a less refreshing night’s sleep.”

The research also found that most people are unlikely to change their sleeping position. Just 5% said they sleep in a different position every night.

I think I’m a combination of the Log and the Freefall position, so who knows!  They seem to fit my personality

What’s your sleeping style????
