Keepin' It Real

In a recent conversation, my friend Debbie "gently" noted that my blog tends to make everything look pretty and perhaps does not fully reflect the everyday happenings of my life. Isn't that what blogs are for I retort? To have a place to relish life's little nuggets of happiness? But the truth is I agree with her wholeheartedly (but please don't tell her I said that.)

In hindsight, the not-so-happy times have been recorded on my blog but nine times outta ten they have a funny spin to them. Or, they are sad but stemming from grief of some sort and not just the ordinary, everyday, sometimes suckiness of life.

So here it is:

Katie's List of Three Things
That Make Me Wanna
Crawl Back in the Bed This Morning

1. iPhone Went Swimming-- well, actually it was plugged in on the kitchen counter right next to where I happened to be washing dishes after dinner. All of the sudden the flashlight feature pops on and I realize that the phone is sitting in a pool of water. Fried. Kapoot. Night night iPhone. And, with it being my only phone and I am planning an event in Nashville next week, I race to Verizon and have to purchase --at full retail price-- a new cell phone. Why? Because I am not due for an upgrade until JULY TWO THOUSAND FIFTEEN. I am now the owner of a Samsung Galaxy 3 Mini. It was cheap and the camera produces pictures that look like Fred Flinstone tapped them out on a stone tablet. But, other than that, it'll do. One thing's for sure. I've learned my lesson about washing dishes. Never again, I tell ya.

2. Satan Called and Wants His Children Back-- for some reason, my children have selected the past two days to lose their everlovin minds in the morning as we prepare for their time at the schoolhouse. Fighting, whining, wrestling, aggravating, tattling. You name it. It definitely sets a not-so-pleasant tone for the day. I threatened to stay in the shower and never come out which, at the present time, does not seem like such a bad idea.

3. Let's Get Physical-- I'm going back to the gym this morning. And I don't wanna. That is all.

OK. Hope that shows the real me. The iphone ruining, Spawn of Satan raising, lazy me. :)

Now back to our regular scheduled motivational, inspirational, make-it-all pretty programming.
