Lessons life has taught me, and other observations

Sometimes "NO" is an acceptable answer.

Don't cut people off in traffic, and if someone cuts you off.. don't flip them the bird.. because maybe just maybe they were having a rough day, and the kids were fighting, and they dropped their phone into a thirstbuster, and just for a second was distracted.. I'm just sayin...

Bad things happen, don't let them define you.

Get the "great wall of chocolate" at P.F. changs, you know you want to.

Have a "Yes" day with your kids. Just don't tell them when it is.

Nap every chance you get.

Love BIG.

Don't forget to be polite. It goes so far!!

Much to her chagrin, her face didn't work. I know what your are all thinking.. Amy has gone mad, no no, the right side was out of sync with the left.. interesting... and I spent all of Paige's soccer game pretty much just talking to Angie, she's used to weird things happening around me.

That's ok Amy thought.. (upon returning home) Today will still be a great day!

*sniff sniff* Quickly Amy was alerted to the smell of death surrounding her house. Animals.. CHECK all is well.. Sink.. CHECK, nothing decaying.. ewww what is that smell. "MOM" Connor says.. "I think it's coming from outside".. I go outside.. EWW EWW.. " It smells like it&…
