    I Can't Help But Laugh At Myself.

    Right now, at this time of transition in my life, I can't help but take a step back and have a good hard look at the decisions and choices I've made.  What a joke! ~ Who's running this show anyway? ~

    Why Just Yesterday I Had A Good One.

    I really hate bugs and creepy crawly things. So I was bringing in the groceries from the car, across the moist grass, across the sidewalk and into the house. My hands were quite full as I was loaded down to save a trip. I almost make it into the kitchen to set the foodie stuffs...

    Laughing While Crying

    I used to crack up whenever I would walk infront of a mirror and I was crying...yes, did really say that. Whenever I was crying, I would walk infront of a mirror, and just laugh and laugh and laugh. I think it was just a phase, but it sure as heck was adorable. (: Lol

    Humour Saves Lives

    I think by building a sense of humour towards yourself, it really helps you through some scary or upsetting times! Humour is the best way you can be there for yourself, cause it's sort of like the genuineness of someone else making you smile, but having it without realising you...
