I've been celebrating Christmas in some form or another since November 3rd - and that is no exaggeration. Because on that day, I opened up the sales circulars from the major discount chains and started plotting and planning my course for total holiday domination. This time I would learn from the mistakes of Christmas past and finally, do everything right. By Thanksgiving, I was woman on a mission with the bulk of my presents purchased and prepped to be wrapped. I eased into the morning of Christmas Eve confident and ready. Then, an uninvited guest came to visit - the wretched Grinch Germ or the Un-Festive Flu or whatever it was. In a blur of a week, the holiday that had held my focus for weeks and weeks limped and coughed its way to a dismal end.
Enter 2013: Now what? I am alone in a quiet house for the first time in forever - or eleven days - who's counting? I decided to make the most of my precious free time by cruising around Pinterest. Yes, I really should have been exercising or finishing my novel or, oh yeah, writing this week's blog. BUT I FOUND MOTIVATION! (Sorry for the shouty caps - It was to prove how motivated I've become - well, sort of ...)
Here are a few of my favorites. As a special bonus, I've included my thoughts beneath each picture. Prepare to be motivated (or possibly not) like never before! Take it away Pinterest:
You really shouldn't be in other people's pockets anyway (well, unless it's Brad Pitt's pocket or someone equally as hot) . And, not unless you really hate your car and want to pretend that it has been stolen - maybe then.
Please help: If anyone can identify this woman, please don't hesitate to find her and let her know.
Okay, "BEYOUTIFUL" According to spell check, you always spell beautiful without a "y" or an "o" and I'm missing an "a" somewhere. Nice quote, unless you like your words spelled correctly.
If the oranges in my refrigerator stand up and start walking, I wouldn't take a picture of it - I'd freak out!
If someone is telling you that the door says, "Pull" instead of "Push", then you should stop pushing harder and try pulling - but not too hard or you'll hit yourself in the face.
Unknown fact about this quote: This guy, Eric Thomas, had been choking prior to saying this.
First of all, I think the first word is "Every" not "Very". Secondly, be careful how far you chase your dreams especially near a cliff. And thirdly, I hope this couple isn't having martial issues or this scene could end very badly.
If you're scared of heights, be your Down-to-Earth self. You know, whichever works for you.
The picture is a little blurry because it's 5 a.m. and the kids are jumping on your bed. This picture should say, "It's the little people, that make me crave caffeine big time" or "Get the hell off our bed, it's 5 a.m.!"
Something like that.
Or when others look at you with that forced smile plastered across your face, they become frightened because they think you're insane.
Why did I start? I ... can't ... remember. I think I'll stop now.
