Celebrate Women the funny stuff

ATT00016I know what Victoria’s Secret is. The secret is that nobody older than 30 can fit into their stuff.

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight because by then, your body and your fat are really good friends.

Just when I was getting used to yesterday, along came today.
Sometimes I think I understand everything, then I regain consciousness.

I gave up jogging for my health when my thighs kept rubbing together and setting my pantyhose on fire.

Amazing! You hang something in your closet for a while and it shrinks two sizes!

Skinny people irritate me! Especially when they say things like, “You know, sometimes I just forget to eat.”   Now I’ve forgotten my address, my mother’s maiden name, and my keys. But I’ve never forgotten to eat. You have to be a special kind of stupid to forget to eat.

A friend of mine confused her Valium with her birth control pills. She had 14 kids, but she doesn’t really care.

The trouble with some women is that they get all excited about nothing and then they marry him!

I read this article that said the typical symptoms of stress are: eating too much, impulse buying, and driving too fast. Are they kidding? That is my idea of a perfect day.

Whili  (White Chili)

2 large cans of Chicken Breast or 2 large chicken breasts

2  small cans of Rotel (Tomato and Chili peppers) I have used plain green chili peppers 2 cans

1/2 tsp Garlic powder, slightly heaping or to taste

4 small cans of white kidney beans (Cannellini beans)

1 bag frozen Cauliflower.

1 onion

2 Tablespoon olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste. The canned food already has salt in them, so use sparingly, we do not use extra salt so it is up to you.

slightly heaping capful of Cumin What do you think… 2 Tablespoon?

In a 2 quart sauce pan or medium sauce pan heat the oil and caramelize the onion over medium heat. Add Chicken and break up the larger pieces, Add the Rotel , do not drain, add 2 cans of drained beans and 2 cans of beans with the juice. Add the dry spices and bring to a boil.  Add the frozen cauliflower and break or cut the larger pieces into dice sized pieces.  Ssshh don’t tell anyone it has cauliflower in it. They will will think it is potatoes,  you won’t be able to taste it . bring back to a boil, cover and cook on low for about an hour. Add water if needed. The cauliflower should be soft and mushy. You don’t want it to be identifiable!

They will go on and on about how good it is, and you will just smile, knowing that you got them to eat vegetables!

New Baby in The House.

We swore we would never do it again.

Let’s start at the beginning.  A few months ago my niece wanted to know if anyone wanted a Boston Terrier, that she is just too much for a mommy that is going to school and working. Her puppy Winnie was a year and a half then.  I thought to myself,  yes they are a handful. I told her that if she couldn’t find a home for her to let me know.  Thinking to myself that I could help her find her a home.    I already had more than I needed.  I have two 4 year old Bostons and a 4 year old Schnauzer, It is a riot around here sometimes!   It is so loud , at play time, that my husband has to blare the television to even hear it.  They are all well behaved, well trained , just busy and loud. We also have the 2 kitties that are normally quiet, unless it is midnight, then they have to YeeeOwwl a few times.

Anyway,  My niece seemed to have given up on trying to give her away , or she had given her away. No she tried to keep her, and just kept her in a cage while her and her husband were working.  She came home one day with a pillow that had exploded in little Winnie’s cage.  Poor Winnie.

With the caption that maybe a pillow was not a good thing to put in the cage with her.

About a month later she contacted me and said that she HAD to find a home for Winnie, that she just couldn’t go to anyone.  The she knows that I would take care of her and love her, and that she could come visit her when ever she wanted.  She said that the poor doggy was not made to live in a cage all of her life.  Now how could you say no to that?  I told my husband about her and what my Niece had said, he couldn’t say no either.

What were we gonna do now.  Already more critters in the house than we needed, So stressful sometimes that you want to scream, but my poor niece needed help!  She was also stressed to the max.  It was a very hard decision for her to make.  A puppy that she had had since she was 6 weeks old, she was thinking of getting rid of.

On Memorial day , they realized that they both had the day off, and brought MIss Winnie to her new home.  I was so excited to see my niece that I held her and wept, it had been 13 years since I had seen her.  Miss Winnie was so happy to see new people and all the doggies.

My niece left her with kisses and hugs, and Pictures with her little girl, who was very attached to her but knew it was better for her to come to my house. She was very apprehensive about leaving her little buddy with me, and left detailed instructions on what she loved and sounded like when she was in pain or hurt.

We got a new baby in the house.  Well a nearly 2 year old.

Winnie

Now we have 3 Bosties, one schnauzer and 2 kitties.  Now how can you beat all the kisses, loving and laughter that you can handle.  All this sweetness in one spot?  These babies teach you so much conditional love.   Welcome home Miss Winnie! We love you!

What ta do , what ta do , what ta do

I have a hard time just sitting down with pen and paper and just to start writing about anything.  When I am just daydreaming or going about my normal Daily thinks.   I say I need to write this down or write that down.  Now I am here and my brain is totally blank!

I often thought about writing about what I would say to my Grandchildren.. words of wit, or Wisdom I want passed down to them.

I want to talk about my family tree,

I can pass on patterns of things I make

I can use it as a journal, or Random thoughts.

Why is it so hard to think up a subject… Maybe if I was given a subject to write about I could. DUH

Are you a Warrior or a Coward

warrior woman

Women Warriors

I thought of this today, when I was thinking of how people are emailing , writing a letter, or texting that they are not interested in the other person anymore, ( or they have found someone else).  I thought of how people quit jobs, without thinking of the the possible consequences, or a man leaving a woman and child, because being a father scared him.   So I wrote this down.

Are you a Warrior or Coward?  In relationships,  whether personal, work or life in general…

Do you run from a little bit of an uncomfortable situation, or do you stick it out, stay and fight.

Do you try everything to make it right, or do you hide or run away.  Are you a quitter?

In what ever situation you are in and it becomes uncomfortable, you do your best to make it a good outcome. Do everything in your power to make it right.   In a bad situation, you will only make it worse by throwing your hands up and running away.

In a personal relationship, fighting doesn’t mean an argument. It doesn’t mean you will raise your voice, or throw a fit to get your way.  That will not get a desired result.  It means that you have to use a strategy to make it right.  Warriors use strategy to win a war. Warriors don’t give up, and turn and run from a situation.  If a warrior sees that it is a no win situation, using quiet, calm talking is stronger than any sword or weapon.

A quitter however will run from any confrontation that causes pain and discomfort.  Such as an argument with a significant other.  Many divorces have happened because of quitters.  They refused to try to get to the root of the problem,  Strati-size , did you do something that ignited the situation? What can you do to make the situation better.  Sometimes a plain, heart felt “I am sorry” will defuse the situation.  The old adage .. “Do not ever say you are sorry!” was initiated by a Controller, not a Warrior.   Warriors are protectors, Not power hungry individuals.  Not saying ” I am sorry” when it WAS your fault, is only a coward’s way of saying … Oops My Bad.

A submissive man/woman will overlook their mate’s harshness and abuse, because they love them.  I know from experience that all these little punches to the belly soon add up, Soon the controller  has pushed you so far away that there is an urgency to just give up ,” because it will never change”.  It will not change, if you have done nothing to change it.  You allow it to happen without even giving your ‘self esteem’ a chance get up off the floor.  You would rather lay there and pretend to be dead,, than to get up and say, “Hey that was unfair, You caused me intentional pain that I did not deserve!”

Warriors, in the work place, will do all in their power to get the job done.  If they come to a seemingly impossible situation, a warrior steps back, analyzes the possible outcomes and heads into the direction that will give the best outcome.  They get the job done, without throwing their hands up and quitting, or saying I can’t do it.

A warrior will go through all the possibilities and choose the best one.  A quitter wont even try.

Failure only happens … when you quit trying!    When you have done your very best to solve the situation, and it still won’t work, then it was never meant for you to solve it.

Another thought on this….   Are you afraid of Change,?  You can’t improve without Change!
