Have you ever had one of those days where left and right you're hitting "Aha" moments? This has been one of those days for me.
I realized after watching Deidra's mom laughing so hard to the point of tears over Pink Panther that this girl needs more laughter in the house. I'm going to fill every corner with opportunities to laugh every so often and if that doesn't work, then I'm sending laughter somewhere else.
I also realized that when people get older, they tend to be more focused on getting old and their ailments as they get older that they really forget to have a good time being silly. I wish I lived close to my parents in North Carolina....they'd be laughing all the time.
I also realized that I often ask my dogs questions and wait for them to respond. A few minutes ago I asked Humble, "Are you tired?" I swear he said that he was so I told him that he needed to lay down and rest. I know for a fact that I'd run if they really did talk.
There's also a profound realization that hit me...one that changes possible directions that Boo and I have been discussing. I don't want to move. I like where I live and the community where I'm at. Boo loves it too. The only thing missing is solid employment. I'm hoping and praying that something comes through because I really don't want to call anywhere else home but here.
Then, while at Sam's Club, I realized that the samples are seriously booming on Fridays. So, the next time, I won't bother eating breakfast before I go...I'll just fill up on samples courtesy of Sam's Club.
I also realized that when I wish for something, sometimes it come true when I least expect it. I was shopping at Target and saw a book that I wanted there. Being that I'm trying to save money, I went to the library to see if I could find it there instead. It wasn't in their catalog. I decided to browse around in their used books for sale section and found the book for 25 cents. That's the type of surprise that I love!
Speaking of surprises....sometimes, there are not so good ones too. Yesterday, when I got ready to climb into the shower, there was an almost 3 inch centipede waiting to eat me. He resembled the creature from the movie, Alien. He gave me this look that said, "Step one foot in the shower and you're dead meet." I called Boo the bug exterminator and wouldn't you know it, the dang creature hid. I was smart though. I took a picture of him just so Boo wouldn't think I was exaggerating. He told me that he was probably down the drain. The water ran for a good five minutes before he convinced me that he wasn't coming back. As I showered, I felt like I was in the movie, Psycho, waiting for the psychotic centipede to appear. All of a sudden his face came out from the stopper and I jumped out of the shower yelling, "He's back! He's back!" Boo took him outside but there was no convincing me that he was gone for good.
I love realizing something out of the blue. It rocks my world.
