Why is it that, during an argument, we try to be the "bigger person?" As I'm getting older, I really don't undertand that concept. I've tried it before and you know what??!!!
IT DOESN'T WORK FOR ME.
I will typically try to hold my tongue and end up blowing a gasket about 10 minutes later. My new philosphy is that I don't want to be the "better person" because that means that I'm ok being a victim. If I'm called a name...I'll be calling one back. If I'm insulted...be prepared to hear more insults from my end. I'm not always nice and friendly but I'm definitely not the agressor in a fight; so I rarely start one.
Take heed for those that know me: Don't throw punches if you're scared to get hit.

Let me tell you, it's amazing how your life changes in 1 week...heck, a couple of days!
Within less than a week, I have been presented with two life-changing adventures, and I'm still reeling. The first is (drum roll please) I got a new job. Yep, and I didn't even go after it. It was just kind of thrust into my lap. I'll be starting that new endeavor on the 20th. Can you say: excited, nervous, scared and apprehensive?
Honestly, I haven't really done much cooking. I've been to busy contemplating life's unpredictable nature to do much of anything. I'm going to plan a menu today and get back into everything.
P.S. I'll talk about my other news a little later. Suffice it to say, it's a surprise that presented itself the day of my interview.
