This weekend reading-50 Shades of Grey and Lust

Moving forward with this book, a desperate need is filled up by a controlling out of control situation for these characters.  How do I apply it to my own life?  Well, plenty of men that I have been with that I told myself I could change for and another patch that thought eventually I could change who I was.   I think this book is one that is sad and tells you to remain who you are, but is the pain worth being who you are?

Making a Change

For years I have been caught between the wild, out-of-control, lose canyon adult I sometimes am who pushes the line of professional dress. While other times, I am that overly responsible, never do anything to cross the line, polite respectful adult.  At times, I feel that I have become two people, one person at work and another in my home life.  Anyone else have this problem?

I'm on so many hours of the day that by the time I get home, I want to kick off the shoes, let down my hair, stay up late and get crazy.  However, when 10'o clock rolls around then the responsible you have to be up at 5:00 am person takes over.  I guess that's why it's good that I have a break during Summer's gives me a chance to relax and just be me for awhile.

Happy Mothers Day

I know it's late but I wanted to say a little thanks

My hero, my friend, my co-author
She lifts me up when I'm on the ground
Never let's me stay there for long 
She is a mother, entrepreneur, author, wife, visionist, and speaker to name a few
She motivates me when I need encouraging
But never lets me dwell on something to long
She listens when I need her and helps me achieve
My mom believes in me and helps me to believe in myself
Amazing, inspirational, powerful
are just a few of the words I'd use
to describe my

Happy Mother's day Mom, I love you. Thanks for all you do.

Big and Bad

Awhile ago,  this little puppy followed Macen home. I have a soft spot for animals, anyone who knows me already, knows this fact to be true.  I told my son's that we could bring her in the house, but we would have to find her a new home, because my bulldog does not want a sister.  That didn't happen and months later, this little puppy not only lives with us but she holds her own in a house with a much bigger doggie.

It doesn't matter how big or small, I guess you really can still be king of the hill.

Desire and Pain

An intense emotional pain is the feeling left in a song that leaves your soul drifting in the wind. No tomorrow, no turning back, because there's nothing left to give.  You don't know if you should weep from the sadness or smile because you feel something so strong you know you're alive.  You vote, weep in pain? Or scream in excitement for feelings you didn't know existed?

Doing Homework with my son is a feat of crazy strength and Patience.  The skills in math he just learned last week, he did completely wrong, not because he doesn't know it but because it is easier then completing it.  Ideas on motivating him to spend his time doing it correctly are appreciated.  Last week I started him on a new plan, if he volunteers to do his homework, practice his instrument and then clean his room and I don't have to, "nag" him then I will let him stay up later.  In return this evening, I get told, "Well, you said I needed to do it, you didn't say I had to do it right."

Ugh, child. I want to scream, why do it at all if you don't want to do it right.
