have you ridden a ride one too many times and got motion sickness?  have you wanted to ride a roller coaster from a far (believe me, i wasn’t admiring this one), but once the harness bar comes down, you know you want off.  are you too embarrassed to tell the person checking the safety belts, you want off?

i’m there.

recently, i was told by someone that i love, that i think life is a “social hour”.  “what’s wrong with that?”, i thought.  though i didn’t vocalize my thought because i didn’t feel like having to explain (dreaded, long process – wouldn’t convince the person otherwise), i merrily traveled to my weekly “coffee” with the girls.  all the while thinking about the statement, wondering, “was being irresponsible?”

yes…i had an errand or two i could have gotten done beforehand, but nothing pressing.  nothing serious enough that i had to run around like a chicken without a head, miss my coffee time, go into work frazzled but in slow motion because i didn’t get my daily coffee requirement(s). 

it’s a great time to just hang without an agenda.  some of us are passing through on our way to work, others get to stay for longer, but laughter is always present. 

who says life has to be so serious?

actually, a couple of levels.

i spend x amount on groceries or i compromise tithe.  guess what happened…

i got everything on my list, everything was on sale, and i only spent .57 cents over my amount! 

sometimes its ok not to compromise!  especially in ways of faithfulness!

i like paper.  i like stationary.  i used to have a bad habit named “papyrus”  where purchases have reached, mmm…yeah, purchases have reached…  happy to say, habit broken!  my husband is happy too.

so, currently, i have notepads and notebooks.  all kinds of things are written on them – notes, lists, thoughts, websites, recipes, cake combinations, and more.  why don’t i use my trio to store this information?   

why is it hard to toss out the numerous pieces of paper with my notes on it?  especially when i know i can “google” just about anything?
