Randomly, I will get on a kick to where I will eat only certain foods for a period of time or only like to cook certain foods. I’ll quit some dishes for a while then re-visit some. I tend to get burnt out quickly. I have certain “quirks” to go along with whatever I’m eating. For instance, if I’m eating a turkey sandwich, I have to have either peanut M&M’s with it or Sour Cream and Onion potato chips. Have to.
Lately, we have been re-visiting good ol’ fashioned spaghetti. I used to despise it and can only sum it up to over use in our early years of marriage. Hey, it was cheap, fast, and easy.
I have my moments for PB&J for lunch with a big ol’ glass of milk. It’s the kid in me I guess. It was another staple in our early marriage. David took it to work for lunch everyday for almost 3 months. He was so sick of peanut butter!
I’m a cereal person, but not for breakfast. I like to eat my cereal at night before I go to bed. I know I’m weird… lol The cereal I’m on now is Honey Nut Cheerios Medley Crunch. I absolutely LOVE it. Apparently a lot of others do too, because they are always low on them at the store. I could eat it every day. Wait a minute… I do eat it every day! For now… It will be something different in a few weeks. Before this one, it was Maple Brown Sugar Life. Everyday.
Being a creature of habit, I don’t try many new foods when we go to restaurants either. I usually order the same entree for each visit. At our local Mexican restaurant, I eat Grilled Chicken and Cheese with rice. When I go to O’Charley’s, I get the loaded potato soup and the club sandwich. Plain and simple. That’s just how I roll.
If you have any food fetishes, etc., that you would like to share with us, feel free to do so! We would absolutely love to hear from you! (Let me know I’m not alone! LOL)
Burps, sneezes, falls, accidentally changing the channel on the remote, typos, too much salt in the boiling water, and even ink blots.
When we first met (and immediately married) this really confused me. But when I questioned it, my brother in law that lived with us at the time interrupted instantly and let me know, “You can bless anyone for just about anything!”
Fast forward nearly 6 years.
Now I cannot remember: When YOU sneeze, are YOU actually supposed to say anything? It feels weird not to now. But at the same time, it seems strange to insist that someone bless you simply for sneezing.
“Howdy stranger. I know I just sneezed a nasty cold virus all over the back of your brand new insanely expensive foreign wool coat that costs what is a car payment to most. But please, would you beg God to bless me?”
Totally weird, right?
I really need to look up a manners and etiquette blog, stat. While I’m at it, I need to start studying grammar/punctuation again. The internet has ruined me…
When do you “Bless” someone?
If you follow me on Pinterest, you know I’m sporadic. I’ll go weeks without pinning anything and then suddenly, there I am to flood your feed.
Because I have to FORCE myself to spend as little time on there as possible.
It’s a vortex! Am I right? You just get sucked right into it and before you know it hours have passed right by.
But today? It’s raining, I’m laid up on the couch, the kids are about to go down for nap, and I believe… yes, it’s true… Pinterest is calling me to spend the afternoon feeling inspired instead of actually doing anything productive.
Followers: Consider yourselves warned.
What exactly is it about Pinterest that draws us all in? Is it the awesome red on white retro font? The trendy little boxes all catergorized to different boards? The actual feeling of being creative when you’ve done nothing of the sort? The awesome feeling when you make something you saw on Pinterest? I could go on…
I do see this resource as more of a tool than a time drain. It just has to be managed and kept in moderation like anything else. I mean, hello, nothing says “Mom of the year” or “Best wife ever” like making something out of nothing, having the perfect dinner made, upcycling all of your furniture instead of buying new, and all of your cleaning products made from scratch, right? Think of it as a way to work on those Proverbs 31 qualities instead of just wasting time. Just don’t actually sit and waste time instead of creating something tangible once in awhile.
Speaking of creating, I have more sewing to do. Maybe I should do that first.
Anyways, back to what I was saying: I love Pinterest. It’s a good tool. Enough said.
