The Bigger Person Dilemma


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.

MOOD: Indifferent
DINNER: Spaghetti & meat sauce

Absence Explanation


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.
