Fortune Cookie Wisdom

We went out for Chinese food last night and at the end of the meal we encountered the following bit of Fortune Cookie Wisdom:

"May the warm winds of heaven blow softly upon your sprint."


My sprint?

Will this help me run better or keep my calls from dropping? Anyone have any ideas on this? Enlighten me, please!

It Was Just A Short Trip Through Lowe's . .

I've been thinking about doing some painting lately, you know, to freshen things up at home. Nothing like some fresh paint now and then. There are some problems, however.

The first problem is choosing the color. See, I want to get it right the first time so I don't have to go back to the store for a re-mix and come back home and repaint the section I started. So I agonize over color choice for a long time! The other problem is that I rent and therefore would have to repaint when I move. Which may be next summer, and while I don't hate painting, I really don't want to do it again that soon!

The next problem(s) is/are my daughters. I want to paint the main living area. They want to paint their rooms as well. If we go that far, I may as well paint my room, too! I don't want to do that much painting (yes, they will help) because it's that much more to re-paint before moving. Maybe we could do accent walls . . .

The last problem is . . . . once the paint is on the walls, the rest of everything will look 'unfresh' and I'll want to re-decorate! That, my friends, becomes costly and time consuming! That's not even factoring in the carpet (!!!) which I will certainly want to cover with a decorative rug to go with the fresh paint.

Funny how a short trip through Lowe's turns into a major road trip through my home!

58 Years Ago Today. . .

Fifty-eight years ago today a young man and a young woman embarked on the adventure of a lifetime. Those years have brought many children, grandchildren and even some great-grandchildren their way. There have been ups and downs and trips down many roads, literally and figuratively speaking! I'm sure if you asked, they would tell you it has all gone by quickly. Ok, so the fun parts probably sped by a bit faster than the hard parts, right? I'm sure when they started out they had no idea where this adventure would lead or how long it might go on. Life is just full of surprises, isn't it? I don't think any of us would have it any other way, though.
