Silly Human

This post is in honor of me and my stuborness/stupidity. It is to remind myself that doing things out of spite is pointless and unproductive (most of the time).

Tuesday this week was a really funny/odd day. why? well it rained (I love rain but I'm very ready for sunshine) and I went to get my snow tires removed to put on my normal ones again. As I get to discount tire the guy helping me says "you need 2 new tires". GREAT! I need to spend MORE money on my car! The price I pay for safety! So the guy gives me a quote and says my 2 tires will be $280. Thats a TON of money for us. But whatever, I'll give them their darn $280 and sulk about it for the rest of the day. Tristin told me that it wasn't a big deal and to just accept it but being me, I decided to pout (to myself) about it. So as I waited 40 minutes for my car I silently fumed. Within those 40 minutes I somehow sold myself to do something stupid because gosh-dang-it I DESERVED it! (FYI: Juanique philosophy 101 says, we human beings are not entitled to anything. As soon as we think the world owes us something, we get infected with a "disease" called pride and selfishness.) Obviously I was having a stupid day. So I told myself that I deserved to indulge in a long lost pleasure called a low fat mocha frappachino......YUM!!

Now I don't do coffee becuase it's a part of our Word of Wisdom to "avoid strong drinks" but Mocha frappachinos are my Kryptonite. So I said to myself, "What the heck. Just do it. You won't regret it," and I guzzled down a whole bottle in 5 minutes. (yes, this IS the most rebelious I get. Pretty lame, I know! The last time I did something out of "spite" I pearce my ears).

I'll tell you now, HOLY COW did I get a headache from the stuff! It was so bad that I had to take Advil for it! I totally regretted drinking it as soon as I was finish. So boys and girls, DONT do coffee! Even if it is Decaf!

But that wasn't all of it. To top things off, When I was trying to make totillas for dinner, the hand mixer broke, my BRAND NEW tortilla press (that I had bought that day), it's handly had COMPLETELY broken off (how that can happen inside a box I do not know) and then it snowed 5 inches the day AFTER I took my snow tires off my car! Oh and my computer totally crashed on Sunday losing almost ALL of my pictures of the past 4 years. HAHAHA.

I'm waiting for someone to jump out at me all of a sudden and yell "APRIL FOOLS" because this April, so far, has been filled with nothing but jokes and bad luck. Our spring so far has brought a couple days of warm weather but then LOTS of rain and LOTS of snow. I'm telling ya, when it rains, it POURS!

.....But life is SO good! It's weeks like these that keep it interesting! I LOVE my life. I think I'll keep it :)

OH, heres a picture of the shirt I colored on Easter at Uncle Dereks house. I was so proud that it turned out as well as it did! I thought my heart would look like a circle but alas, it did not :)
If this shirt could talk, it would say,
Oh Spring, how my heart waiteth for thee!
