I love my dog, football college is better than the NFL, coffee, wine, men and lots of swear words!! Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one. These are mine. If you are going to be mean keep yours to yourself.

Love this!!

I keep seeing this and I love it more every time I read it!! Take notes men!! 

Women Over 40.......
In case you missed it on 60 Minutes, this is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 40:

As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:

A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think.

If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting.

Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40.

Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize.

For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? Here's an update for you................

Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!

Andy Rooney is a very intelligent man!

Being an adult SUCKS (sometimes)

Being an adult can be hard.
There are major perks to being an adult.
We can buy alcohol and drink it whenever we want.
We can have sex pretty much whenever we want.
We can stay up as late as we want. We can sleep as late as we want.
We don't have to make our beds if we don't want to.
We can be messy. I personally get undressed pretty much anywhere and everywhere in my house.  There is always a random pile of clothes in the hallway or living room.
I can have popcorn, wine and waffles for dinner.
So, the perks are everything every kid dreams of.
The sucky parts especially when owning a home are the endless list of repairs and to do lists.
And then there are the BILLS!!
My ass is currently being kicked by property taxes.
I owe $4,530.00 in property taxes and they tack on penalties if not paid all in one HUGE lump sum.
Who the fuck has $4,500 just hanging out waiting to be spent?
I dont. I run a small business. Which is growing daily but I don't have a spare $4,500.
It is frustrating. I wanted to start a GoFundMe account and ask EVERYONE for $5.00.
I didn't do that. Who the hell would donate? They don't give a shit if I have property taxes to pay.
So, I resorted to borrowing small amounts from friends. Even that is/was a HUGE challenge.
I pride myself on helping people when they need help. There were people that I know VERY well and I asked for as little $50 and they couldn't be bothered to even reply to my messages.
All they had to say was "Hey, I can't help right now." TOTALLY understand.
There are a lot of friends that came thru with FLYING colors. I am still $1,500 short but SLOWLY getting there... Yes, I will have to pay the penalty so I am probably closer to $2,000 short.... BUT whatever details.
It SUCKS being an adult.
So, don't be in a hurry to grow up.
Stay at home and live bill free as long as possible.
You can sneak around for the alcohol and the sex. Might be worth the hassle to not have to worry about bills.

I found this post on Facebook last year... reposted it.... Found it again this year and reposted it!!

I started my happiness jar IMMEDIATELY!!
Read about it! Perhaps start one of your own!

Here is the post from Elizabeth Gilbert originally posted 2015:
Dear Ones -
Here it is the end of the year, and I thought it might be a good time to re-introduce to you all the concept of a Happiness Jar.
Here's me with mine!
What is a Happiness Jar? The simplest thing in the world. You get yourself a jar (or a box, or a vessel of any kind) and every day, at the end of the day, you grab a slip of paper and write down on it the happiest moment of the day.
Even on lousy days, you do this. Because even on lousy days, there is one best moment (or at least, one least-worst moment.)
You stick that little piece of paper in the jar.
Over the years, you have a record of your happiness.
On bad days, I will thrust my fist in that jar and go fishing — pulling up a handful of great moments that I would have utterly forgotten, had I not documented them.
I've been doing this practice for years, and I love it.
If my house ever caught on fire, this would be the one material object I would grab before I ran out the door...because what's inside this jar? THAT'S WHERE IT'S AT — the whole point of this life.
Over the years, my Happiness Jar has taught me much. What continually amazes me is what ends up on the slip of paper every day. Not awesome events, not huge achievements — usually just a small and tiny thing, a moment of awareness...that moment when you step outside and between the house and the car you get hit on the top of the head with a beam of sunlight, and suddenly feel awash with gratitude simply for being alive, and you think, "Yes. This is it."
It's usually something that small — and something that grand.
I know that many of you have started this practice, too — and I love seeing the pictures of your jars, and hearing how you have adapted this to your own lives. I love the woman who put one in the middle of her dining room table, and she and her kids each put an entry in there every day — what a cool family practice! And I love the woman who wrote to me last week saying that she had the hardest year of her life, but she kept her Happiness Jar practice going the whole time, and today — on the last day of the year, she's going to pull out each piece of paper in the jar, to remind her that even now, even in hard times, there was always one good moment a day.
So if anyone wants to begin this practice tomorrow, a New Year is always a great place to start!
Sending love, and, of course, wishing you all an abundance of Happy Moments in 2015!

Christmas is making me sad this year.
I can't seem to put my finger on why.
It seems like time is flying by too fast. I miss being a little kid when the holidays seemed to last forever.  My parents had Christmas parties. I want to have Christmas parties.
I want to go shopping and get my picture taken with Santa. Yes, I am still that nerdy.
I feel like no one takes time to ENJOY the Christmas season any more.
I want to sit and watch White Christmas and Christmas Vacation and any other Christmas movie with my family and friends.
I have done a little of it this year but not as much I have wanted.
I made a couple of batches of homemade jam from my Grandma's recipe and sent it out.
But, I don't know if anyone appreciates homemade treats anymore.
I have about 200 people on my Christmas card list. So, far I have received LESS than 20 cards.
That is making me sad too. I do too much with my cards. I do a card, I add a photo, I write a note and I address the envelope.
I need to start pre-printing EVERYTHING then maybe it won't seem like such a chore to get these out. I am such a stubborn person I know I will NEVER take a short cut on my cards. I like the handwritten notes. Someone appreciates a handwritten note, I know they do.
I am trying to get out of my Christmas FUNK. I will be sitting on my couch tonight with just the Christmas lights on and watch a White Christmas. I know it will make me feel better.

Neyland Stadium

Saturday night I went to a football game at Neyland Stadium. Home of the Tennessee Volunteers. 
First of all "VFL" is the dumbest thing I have ever heard anyone yell at a football game. VFL stands for Vol For Life. (🙄 so stupid!) and they yell it CONSTANTLY! 

Secondly, they like to make fun of the visiting fans as they cheer for their team. 
I had the pleasure of glaring at a particular gentleman. I had to say a few choice words to him as well. Don't make fun of me. Or my team. And please refrain from calling anyone associated with my team a name. I will cuss you out and I did. 

The best part of my adventure on Saturday included making sure my friend Cedric's mom made it the game safe and sound. Cedric is on the coaching staff at Vanderbilt. 

We had too much fun! Josephine Calhoun was a blast. We talked non stop!! It's like we had been friends for years. 
And she lives less than 10 minutes from me in Texas! What are the chances? Good people. 

TOO much orange... And if I never hear Rocky Top again it will be too soon. 

The score was not what I had hoped it would be when I walked into Neyland. 
The refs didn't help. But I was just a bad game. Sometimes, they just happen. 

Well, now we have 274 short days until a new Vanderbilt football season begins!!
