Learning...

I've been learning some things about myself but first I want to write about something I forgot that happened on Saturday with Monkey. Don't worry it somewhat ties in...I got into J's car and he has this air freshener that I think stinks so bad and it gives me a major headache. Though it was warm enough outside on Saturday that I was able to have the windows open a little that helped. I got into the car and said, "Wow that really stinks." Monkey said, "What is that?" I said, "Daddy's air freshener." He says, "Don't you mean air stinker?" It was too funny. Well that is one of the things I have learned about myself over the last few months is that I struggle with strong smelling things. Perfume, candles, and sometimes food if it has a strong smell give me headaches. J loves things that have the strong smell to them so it is a bit of a conflict when buying said items.

Our church is having a bake sale to raise money to send a couple into the missions field. This couple is in J and I's age group and we've known them for awhile. I wanted to help out and make some cookies for J to take tonight. He has a Deacons meeting so he has to go anyway. As I was making the cookies I realized that I really want a kitchen aid mixer. Well I guess I didn't just realize that today it was confirmed today. I have wanted one for awhile. They are expensive. This is what I am learning I like the expensive things and I never want to spend the money on myself so I just don't buy myself stuff. Another example are Uggs, I want a pair not because I think they are super cute or stylish but because they keep your feet warm in the winter. I can't stand having cold feet and my feet always seem to be cold! ***And J if you are reading this it is not a hint to go out and buy them for me.*** I had to put that in there otherwise I would have a 130 dollar pair of Uggs tomorrow when he got home from work, he is that kind of a guy!

Other than that I wish people would be accountable for the things they say online. Specifically in comments on other peoples blogs. I have read two of my favorite blogs over the past week and they have had some of the nastiest comments by anonymous people, of course. Why do people have to be so mean on the blog and in comments? Are you really that insecure?

Well, I realized you didn't say "don't go out and get me the kitchen aid mixer!" :) You can find really great knock-off uggs that are just as warm and fuzzy!

I hear ya. I think anonymous drive comments are cowardly and unnecessary and just manage to succeed in ruining someone's day. I've had em....but, I'm proud to say I've never done it....and I never will.

I've never done anonymous comments them either Ann(ie)! But I've had many one or two mean ones.

I went out at the end of the season and bought my Uggs half off...I love them, but they are crazy expensive!

Megan has a point... Hmmm.

Hey, Valentine's Day is around the corner. Perfect reason to have him splurge on you!

I hate anonymous meanies. Their mothers didn't hug them enough...

I just read that Anonymous comment!!! I am laughing through my coughing!

I sometimes wish I would get mean anonymous comments. I think they are so ridiculous. Why on earth would I care about what some stranger thinks of me? Too funny. They must have way too much time on their hands.

maybe you will get your mixer for valentines day!

As far as others leaving nasty comments... yes they are that insecure with them selves that they have to "try" to make people missrable.... the good news is, people like you and me, and I am sure your friends too.... people like us don't allow nasty people to bring us down, it just strengthens our personality!
