Not So Wordless Wednesday

No, I haven't seen your lipstick!!!

Why would you even ask me that? I'm insulted! Every time something goes missing around here, everybody looks at me! For your information, I don't even wear that shade - it doesn't flatter my complexion and it tastes terrible. oops...

(fortunately this is NOT my dog!)

Things I've learned this week

1. If awakened at 5:30 a.m. by the sound of a  THUD and a flash of black and white, go investigate.  You might just find your cocker spaniel with your brand new $90 shoe in his mouth.

2. If, while lying in bed trying to fall asleep at night, you hear crinkling, then several thuds, go investigate. You might just find your cocker spaniel with a bag of tomatoes on the floor.  If he then streaks past you and runs to your bedroom, you will definitely find him in there eating one of the tomatoes as fast as his little doggy face can manage.

3. The 2nd bag of coconut m&ms does not taste as good as the first bag if eaten immediately in succession.  Use a little self restraint and wait 10 minutes before moving on to the 2nd bag.

4. Some people are just going to be stupid no matter how intelligently you try to reason with them.  And those same people will most likely leave the conversation feeling that YOU are actually the stupid one.

5. My pharmacist says the insane itchiness that I feel might be due to my anxiety rather than my allergies.  That's something that might have been useful to know a year ago.

6. Rain makes corn.  Corn makes Whiskey.  Whiskey makes my baby feel a little frisky.

Self review = Sometimes I'm a meanie

Last week I was asked by my boss to do my annual self review for my year's evaluation.  I put it off as long as I could but was finally told on Friday that I was out of time.  Tonight as I was working on it, I checked my email and I saw that I had a comment on my last blog which made fun of a wedding announcement.

The person claimed to be the bride in the announcement and basically chastised me and my readers for our judgmental comments on her wedding announcement and her relationship in general.  I do sincerely apologize for any hurt that I might have caused her.  I do not know this person nor do I know how she found my blog but embarrassment to her was not my intent.  I removed the post from my blog and will think twice in the future about posting any thing that might hurt someone.

This "incident' has caused me to do my own self review...of my life, my  priorities, and how I treat others.  I am a work in progress.  I do not claim to be perfect.  However I am a grown woman and I need to be more aware of those around me.  I will try harder to be more selfless and kinder to those that I encounter in life, whether in real life or blog life.
