I stopped to get gas today after work. First off, it's gone up in price again. Snarly face. I got out and swiped my gas card, entered the info and the machine read, "see cashier." What? I thought maybe I hit a wrong number on my zip code. So I tried again. Hurumph. Same message.

So, did I go to the cashier? Nooooo, I thought I'd try another pump. So pulled around to a different pump, got my Shell card off the dash and realized...yes, you guessed it, I was at the Mobile station! Sigh....

I was all stirred up about something that was my fault. Know what I mean? Stomping about, blood pressure rising, getting a sweat going. A tad humbling, isn't it?

I wonder how my life would be if I always dashed about in all things? Whoooeeeee.

"And here's why: God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding. He's a rich mine of Common Sense for those who live well, a personal bodyguard to the candid and sincere. He keeps his eye on all who live honestly, and pays special attention to his loyally committed ones." Proverbs 2:6-8 (MS)

Thank you Father, for being my guard and common sense. Keep giving me that free Wisdom!

We all have these moments but this did make me smile!

Yep. We have all had those moments. Good thing I use my amazon visa card for everything. I pay it off right away, but use it to build up points for when I need to buy gifts.

There is a good book out there called "Don't sweat the Small stuff" and it's all small stuff. :-}

Ah yes, I often get myself worked up over nothing!

You are one funny lady! My personal Erma Bombeck!

Thanks y'all. I'm glad I'm not the only to do this at times. :) Ian, I've heard of that book, but haven't read it. Maybe I should, huh?

Super funny Karen. That is totally something I would do. And my kids would be laughing their heads off in the backseat!

Did you get your hands on that newest grandbaby yet? I sure hope so!

Enjoy your week. And enjoy that green grass. Our snow melted due to rain here last week (rain in January is not good in Minnesota) but today and tomorrow we have highs that are below zero. Our windchills are in the negative 40's. And we don't even get a late start from school. So bummed... Indoor recess is hard to take some days!
PS Major is a beauty. Love his coat!
