How to embrace the creepers that are SPIDERS

I call spiders “creepers” because that’s what they are! They’re creepy. And I am so, so very not fond of them. But recently…I don’t know. I never used to have a problem killing bugs in the house – ants, spiders, flies, whatever. I didn’t just dislike them, I feared them! But suddenly I’ve started to feel bad for just killing an animal. I don’t want them in the house, but that doesn’t mean they need a death sentence. Probably, my newfound respect for creepy animals happened when I met my friends snake and realized he wasn’t creepy at all.

Last night I saw a daddy long-legs crawling around. First instinct? Smush him! But I didn’t. I watched him, and realized that he seemed to be missing a leg. So then I wondered if killing him would put him out of his misery because he was in pain. And I worried that if I let him stay inside that Shopcat would find him, eat him, and then get sick (because they’re poisonous spiders, they just can’t get their teeth long enough to bite humans). I decided I needed to get Mr. Spidy outside. Long story shooort… I looked ridiculous as I kept luring him onto a piece of kleenex and walking ... Read More

celebrate life every day

Far too often we forget to give ourself pep talks. Do you know who you should look to for inspiration? This little girl, named Jessica.  In this video from Youtube, “Jessica has a day where she’s feeling … really good about her life.” She is even positive that she can be a shark (assert?). Don’t you miss the freedom of believing you can be anything you want to be?

Celebrate life everyday! Everyday is a holiday.

Because I drink a lot of Diet Coke, I’ve amassed Coke Points! And do you know what you get to do with Coke Points (if you save them like crazy)? You get presents! I’ve finally picked my gift, which is a $50 gift card to Nike.com. I wish it worked for in-store, too. But oh well. Although I need a new pair of sneakers, after reading the comments and reviews for the different Nike sandals, I’m sold on trying a pair of those. I can get sneakers another time.And I’m not picky about what kind of sneakers I get – but with sandals it’s so hard to find a pair that is truly comfortable. It looks like Nike might actually make the most comfortable sandals for women around. So I really have to take the chance on one. But…which one??! Ah, it’s driving me crazy. Since I’m indecisive, I want some help picking so I know what the best flip flops here really are.

So, let’s talk Nike sandals. Once I have an even more comfortable pair I’ll get out more – I hope! Walking Shopdog, etc. Comfort in flip flops is soooo important, yanno?

Celebrate life everyday! Everyday is a holiday.

Today we’re celebrating finding super comfortable flip flops, because blisters are annoying and give you an excuse to stop being active. (And we’re also celebrating that I’m going to be proactive and use my Coke Reward points!)
