An Executive Decision

Me-Pulling my hair out

Why is it that when I get pissed off, most of the time the only person I bitch to is myself?
 I'm watching tv, our goalie is so far out of the net that they could drive the zamboni behind him, & the other team scores.  I scream at...the tv.
I'm in the car, listening to some great '80's hair bands & some idiot decides NOT to stop at his (or her) stop sign at a four-way stop when I have the right-of-way.  I start flailing my hands & myself.  (they can't hear me with the windows closed & by that time,  they've already flown right past me & don't care)
I finish reading a blog post & before I comment, I like to read some of the of the other comments. (Everyone does this, right?)  I see a comment that really pisses me off.  This doesn't happen often. But,  I don't hijack the comments (or the comment writer's blog).  I sit & bitch & myself.

So, this has brought about an executive decision.
By jove, I think I've got it!
When I was young, I wrote in a diary.  When I got older,  I journaled & still do every so often when I feel like putting a pen to paper, literally.  To me, there is still something magical about the written word on paper. (Note to self:  Blog Post)  Where is my Evernote widget???  
Now, I have a blog.  This is my diary, my journal, my Outlet!!!  I have somewhere to let loose my ramblings & ventings.  (now spell check is starting to piss me

My Executive Decision is to bring some of my complaints here.  My posts won't all be about how awful something is & I won't be on here every five minutes because so & so just got on my nerves, but I am giving myself somewhere to leave unleashed feelings of frustration.  Much better than bottling it up & having it explode when I least expect it.
So join me in the exploration as I release my inner rantings & possibly some raves as well.

Unfurling my knotted babushka,

A Positive Message? ??

I Love Samples!   Whether it's tasting food samples at Costco (the best free Saturday lunch) or getting freebies in the mail (I subscribe to so many freebie sites), free stuff is awesome!

Now my hubby might not agree with me (unless it's the edible type of freebie) because I have a tendency to keep things way longer than needed.    I wouldn't be considered your typical tv show hoarder, but I have a hard time throwing things away that I "might" be able to use one day. 

So I get this freebie the other day that I sent for from one of the many sites I subscribe to.  (after awhile you start to notice that they all have pretty much the same stuff,  but won't dare unsubscribe just in case they have something different :) It's two full size protein bars from Quest.  There were chocolate chip cookie dough & hot cinnamon roll flavors.  They were very tasty & not at all crumbly.   I do have to say I am partial to the chocolate chip cookie dough though.

Now the reason for this post is not to review the product.   The reason is because of the box they came in.  (Yes,  I saved it.  Like I have room for more stuff. 

As I'm reading,  I'm finding such a powerful & positive statement.   Then I get to the last three statements & I know... This box was the sample that was meant for me!  Here it is,  cut & flattened.
Intensely waving the babushka that I am obsessed with,  your abnormal friend,
