When you're up, you up; when you're down, you're down......

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

Announcements, Announcements, ANNOUNCEMENTS!! Okay.... first.... that title took me to a WHOLE nother train of thought that REALLY needs to be derailed.... sorry! (it's a scout thing)

So... I'm a firm believer in life knocks you down, you get back up. Up until recently that's been my deal. It's not always easy or fun and usually results in atleast 1 bruise, but you go on!!!

Recently though, I took a hard blow. It was actually several little blows that added up cause of timing. And I got back up but I guess my head is still reeling from the landing. Things have changed. I'm not willing to put the effort into some of the things that I had been in the past. Some of it is good. Like worrying about the little stuff. Arguments that have no point just aren't worth it. Justifying myself to my kids, just not worth it.....polite, yes, necessary when it's part of a larger argument, not so much.

One bad thing is I seem to have lost my SP mojo. I know I'll get it back, but it's hard to explain to those friends who actually LOOK for me on SP. I've not gone, I'm just sitting back for a bit.

I actually feel like I stood up and then decided "ewwwwww.... that's some good S**T!" (like you see in comedy's of the early 80's.... Cheech & Chong?) and I sat back down to enjoy the ride! I do actually stand up every now and again.... baseball practice doesn't recognize that I'm busy! Nor does scouts or homework or work or.... all the other stuff mom's do. But when I'm not doing all that stuff I'm sitting and "chillin".... know what I mean?? I'm not going to argue over what part of my back needs a back rub or why exactly it is that THESE maps appear lighter than the ones he liked just 5 min before or why the 10yr old gets to stay up later than the 6 yr old. It's just not worth my effort.

And for the record, every now and again I push myself to work on something scout related just to clear the brain. Scouts is a GREAT distraction.... most of the time.

I'll get up at some point and decide that exercise is worth it again, I promise. But for now, I'm sitting back & watching the grass grow.... I'm soaking up the sun (not literally)..... I'm contemplating my navel.....

Give me a week. If you don't see productive movement by then..... someone send in the reserves!!!

Okay, gotta do it:

Announcements, Announcements, ANNOUNCEMENTS!

Mary had a little lamb
Little Lamb, Little Lamb
Mary had a little lamb,
the Doctor was surprised!

Announcements, Announcements, ANNOUNCEMENTS!

Row row row your boat
gently down the stream
Ha, ha, fooled ya
I'm a submarine!

Announcements, Announcements, ANNOUNCEMENTS!

When Mary Had A little Lamb
the Dr. was surprised
but when Old McDonald had a farm
they couldn't believe their eyes

Announcements, Announcements, ANNOUNCEMENTS!

when you're up, you're up
when you're down, you're down
but when you're only half way up
you neither up nor down!

Announcements, Announcements, ANNOUNCEMENTS!

Make announcements short and sweet
short and sweet, short and sweet
Make announcements short and sweet
They're so BORING!!!!

Like I said, it's a scout thing.......

    Everyone needs a spark break now and then, Kris. Decisions need to be made about where to focus our time and efforts. Don't stay away too long ... the longer you're gone the harder it is to come back.

    Lucky you blogged this (which still, to me, sounds like something dirty and you hide in a closet) We were just about to come kick your butt in gear. But hey, I guess, for a little bit, we can cut some slack... (not pants or capri's though... get it?)

    so ya have till Saturday, then we collectively, those at the walk, and yes I am coming I changed things about, will drag you along...

    but till then chill, relax.... soak up the sun... while we have it....

    Kris, I totally understand where you are coming from and have to say I thought to myself today I wonder when Kris is going to jump back in. I will be watching for you to get back in. Some things in life do make you look at things in a totally different way.
