Two weeks ago while perusing the snack aisle at Wal-Mart, I spotted a bag of Pistacios.
It had been YEARS-literally since I even ate 1.
So as I read the nutrition label, I thought, "Why not?"
That partially opened shell, calling...teasing me...daring me to make the purchase...
How could I resist?
Was that an index finger beckoning me from inside the bag?
Meandering passed the old ladies(think this was their social outing), careening through the mass crowd of teen zombies, and zipping into the shortest line, I reach satisfaction knowing that I have just rekindled a long, lost love...pistacios!
Yea, I know ypu thought this'd be another mushy chick blog! Not on your life!
Stay tuned to another episode of "What Sonya's gonna try next..." dum...dum...dum...

"Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."
Beyond mankind's understanding are the supernatural works and things of God.
Although I can not conceive His full ominiscence, I know His goodness and works are abundantly exceeding human comprehension. Dang! What a mighty God I serve!

Tonight, after work, I planned to do the 15 minute ab video from the Jan. Jumpstart Challenge. I know Coach Nicole reserved a spot for me in her studio apartment where she diligently beckons me to join her.
Love it when she starts off with that, "Hey, been waitin' on you, Sonya!" look in her eyes.
(A girl can dream, okay!)
After playing taxi driver to my 8th grader, I returned home to help my 8-year old with homework. Then I heard a voice, unfamiliar exercise guru alter ego, Biff say, "Let's trick our muscles. She's expecting Nicole, so let's give her Biff..." As if Nicole doesn't know what she's doing! The nerve of her!
Since her high-pitched voice aggregates me to no end, I thought, "What the heck? Nicole won't trip about postponing our date!"
So I proceed to do crunches, bicycle crunches, back extensions, and try boxers.
Biff, didn't tell me I'd feel it so soon.
Don't worry Nicole...I'm not letting Biff sidetrack me again, because I WILL see you tomorrow.
Don't tell Biff. She's slightly demented

My hubby asked my 8-year-old son if he had homework last night.
My son innocently replied, "No."
Now I know we have high expectations of our children, but we certainly don't condone dishonesty.
So at this point, understand how I felt when I checked his backpack only to discover, whala...the homework! (let's not mention previous completed homework not turned in...)
Of course, I really thought about flying off the handle.
Now how would Heathcliff & Claire Huxtable," The Cosby Show"parents (for you younguns out there) handle this?
Here's how it all went down...
Mom- AJ, why didn't you tell your dad you had homework when he asked you last night?
AJ- (looking up at me with large, innocent eyes- he's good) I'm sorry!
Mom- what is it called when you don't tell the truth?
AJ- lies...(waiting the verdict)
Mom- I await him to reply further...
AJ - Is dad gonna be mad at me?
Mom- He'll be very disappointed and may not trust you for a while. This includes me...
AJ- (disappointed look, with fear)...
After this conversation, I made him do his homework. He's about to write 50 times "I will not tell lies." Usually, we try to let him determine his punishment. We then ask why his choice is appropriate. This may seem unconventional, but it allows children the option of input and understood consequences. When make inappropriate choices, they must deal with the consequences.
Seems fair? What's your take?
