This is my last post here at WordPress…it has been a great journey for me but it has come to an end. I’m proud of my work on here, but I’m also proud of the website that I created for Digestive Disorder awareness and honestly, it’s hard (for me) to manage both 🙂
I hope that you visit me sometime at http://www.mycrazycolon.com
I’ll be there tucked away in Kat’s corner!
Thank you for your support…
I truly appreciate it!
Yesterday while at the dollar store, I saw these colorful wax candy bottles filled with sweet liquid and immediately smiled, remembering them from my childhood. I almost knocked a small child down as I giddily ran out of the store to my truck (don’t worry, he was fine, although he did tear up a bit.) As I sat in my seat, eagerly tearing the plastic wrap off my nostalgic goodies, I remembered how much my sister and I loved them. I closed my eyes and bit down.
Those lil things were so nasty. The bad thing is I felt like I needed to eat all 10 of them because maybe the orange one would taste better than the yellow one or the green one or the blue one? No. Still nasty.
Yesterday, I realized some things don’t need to be re-visited and it’s okay to keep good memories just where they are…
In the past.
Today, I mentally went to my “special” place (in my mind) when my son started talking about the new safe house that he built in Minecraft. For 45 minutes, I heard about zombies, secret passageways, storage chests and some poor cows that fell over and turned into leather. I tried to look interested, I really did and even interjected an “Oh, my goodness, really?” every couple of minutes. I truly thought this game would lose its appeal after a couple of weeks but…it seems to be hanging on…tight.
<<<— This is Buddy. He’s not a marshmallow. He’s a short baby white alien made from human body fat.
I love him very very very verymuch.
Actually, he is my new adorable (and a wee bit creepy) Adipose squishy stress toy that was given to me on Christmas. Last year, I was wooed (with food that I didn’t have to pay for) into watching back to back episodes of the British Sci-Fi television series, Doctor Who. Even though I had gotten some tasty lil vittles out of it, I just couldn’t get into the show. And then I saw him. He was a little white blob of cuteness. The sweetest thing. Ever. Buddy should have won an acting award for his stellar performance as a wobbly smiling Adipose alien baby with one tooth. Even though there were about a thousand of em and they looked the same, he was the BEST! Seriously.
Anyway, since Christmas, we have spent a great deal of time together, and I realize that I don’t want to put a damper on this (healthy) blossoming friendship by squeezing Buddy until his eyes bulge out…So…I decided to use him as a 2013 resolution…a reminder to NOT get stressed out. Of course, I’ll still reserve the right to worry, but hopefully, he’ll help me remember to focus my energy on dealing with the bigger things in my life instead of stressing or feeling guilty about the little things…like dirty dishes in the sink 🙂
Happy New Year!
Other wonderful pictures in Buddy Gallery (yes, I know…too much time on my hands)
I remember a time in my life that New Year’s Eve meant hitting the town hard, searching for a great place to party…now it means hitting the couch hard in my elastic pants, sweatshirt (and lil cubes of cheese) watching the Twilight Zone marathon. And I love it! Anyway, I just wanted to wish everyone a wonderful, happy, safe and prosperous 2013. I thank everyone who visited my blog this year, I hope you enjoyed reading as much as I have enjoyed writing; it has been a fun journey so far & I appreciate you allowing me to share a lil bit of my life with you. See ya next year!
