That is the question. I could go either way today. Let’s start with something I’ve been wanting to address for quite a while: What is with the sense of entitlement in this country? Why are our children so spoiled they expect to get the latest game system or fashions – and get them? Wake up parents!
Watching House*Hunters, I see these kids grown up – at least somewhat. They are looking for a home and they have to have a master suite with two sinks. Our family of five had one bathroom most of the time I was growing up and, when we became six, added a powder room (eventually 3/4 bath). Know what? We survived just fine, thank you very much. Three teenagers. My memory is a bit foggy right now but I am sure we fought over shower times and towels but we also had to learn teamwork – happily or not.
Oh, and granite countertops! Have to have granite countertops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen! How long before having to buy and use a special cleaner for that stainless steel every day gets old? And I’ve read where dark colors of granite can give off unhealthy amounts of radon!
I would love to have a kitchen make-over. Quartz countertops would be nice; bamboo floors. An extension to make the back of the house, where the kitchen is, an "open-concept" kitchen/family room. Am I willing to over-extend myself and my family to get what I want. Nope. We’re barely making it as it is. I’ll be happy if we can stay in our humble abode.
So glad I got that off my chest. I could go on and on………but that’s enough.
On a positive note, I had a great conversation with Liz today. She’s a blogging buddy who has become a friend. I feel so comfortable speaking with her. After getting fed up with spaces, she designed her own web site which I highly recommend. She hasn’t been spending much time there because of the lack of visitors. I told her that I am getting fewer and fewer visitors except for the faithful five or so. Hang in there, Liz!
Let’s falderal (did you know that is a verb? Nah.):
If you have a spouse, do you have the same view on life style? Not really. Himself likes "things" more than I do. I can live without the big screen tv but wanting one gnawed at his gut until he got one.
Superbowl Sunday in the USA! Will you be watching? If not, what are your plans? If so, who are you planning to watch it with, are rooting for one team over the other or just want to see a good game and great commercials!? Oh, boy will I be watching and rooting for the Cardinals because of Kurt Warner is their quarterback (see previous entry). We plan to see it with G&P who are our best couple friends.
Has the hole in the ozone layer affected you? Not that I know of.
Donuts or cookies? Oh, cookies for sure. Yum.
Have you read The Shack by William P. Young? This book changed the way I see God – in a good way. I highly recommend it.
Can you tell I don’t have much creativity today? Sorry. Here’s hoping for a safe, fun, Cardinal-winning weekend! g
