Do You Want Some Whine With That Cheese - A Sentimental Repost

 Hey guys, I'm re-posting this (from two years ago...yikes), because I'm in the hospital today with my little guy (nothing serious, just some easy surgery stuffs). 

So, this week, I was really whiny. Not just to friends and family, but to a few strangers as well. (Hey, if you’re that kid at the movie popcorn stand, I am really sorry for spilling out my life in front of you – I owe you big man... I owe you big).

Maybe it was because of the snow that assaulted my house (didn’t that porcupine say it was spring?). Or maybe it was because this week was Parent Teacher Conference and I spent a billion dollars at the book fair (now I know why they schedule the book fair at the same time as P.T.C. - Conspiracy). But I think I was whiny mostly because of daylight savings.

So yes, I whined. Whined about getting older, whined about my shoes smelling like moldy cupcake frosting, and whined about getting dinner on the table (why do we have to eat so many times during the day? Can’t they make a pill for that?) (Oh, maybe they do. I think it’s called a diet pill.)

Anyway, I have had my fill of whine; I am ready for the good stuff. So, I’m taking action! I’m starting a new writing project, I’m watching what I eat, and I’m washing my tennis shoes!  They have a cool drying rack for that ... I’ve been told. (Hey, I did all three of those things...SWEET! But I'm pretty sure I tossed those shoes.)

And next time you come to my door, I’m going to talk your ear off, even if you are trying to get me to buy your new windows with the extra layer of warmth. Yes, you will be begging to get away from my house (and will be warning others of the crazy woman down the street).

So world, beware. I’m on the prowl!

There will be no need for that cheese anymore. I’m throwing that cheese into a great casserole with macaroni (and little cornflakes on top). Ah, the world is looking better already!

Have a great week guys!

Hope your little guy feels better soon.

And sounds like a good way to toss that cheese. :) Totally laughing at the poor door-to-door salesman who next met you back then. :)

I hope everything goes well with your little guy! Have a terrific day.

I've noticed that all of your blog posts this month have something to do with the theme of feelings and emotions. =] You should totally tie that in to character emotions! ;)

Hope everything goes okay today! Email me the second you get home!

Whine away, my friend. It's the only whine I take.

Carolyn, so nice to meet you at LTUE! I'm enjoying your blog. Hope all goes well with the surgery. Even minor stuff can get stressful. Permission to whine:)

David Powers King said...

Yikes. A fast recovery I wish you guys.

(I did not mean to sound like Yoda just now)

Hope everything goes well with your little boy. If your life is spinning out of control like mine is, then you definitely have permission to whine.

Jackee said...

Me too! :o) I'm joining your crusade because I need to be better as well.

There's that lovely phrase I know you'll appreciate as much as I do: "The future is as bright as your faith!" :o)

Big hugs!

Hope your little one is okay. :-)

Only mom's with kids with issues are like - in the hospital today, no biggie...

Hope all goes well, thanks for the re-post =)

Glad to hear the surgery went well. :) You are so busy, I don't know how you do it.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I hope everything went well! I feel like whining a little today...

Have a happy weekend!

Susan Fields said...

I hope everything's all right with your son! I forbid my kids to go into the book fair - it's way too expensive!

Medeia Sharif said...

I hope your son is okay.

I've had some whiny days.

Lynn said...

I love your sense of humor! Hope your son is doing well.

Al said...

hope things aren't too rough for your little 'un

ali said...

LOL. Hey, I say a chick as awesome as you deserves to whine now and then. Hope your boy heals up fast!

Hope everything went well with the surgery.

Loved your example of doing something with that "cheese and whine." I'm really trying to be more the glass half-full kind of person. But like you said, it's not just in thinking it, it's in the actions, too.

Jen Daiker said...

Hope the little guy is doing well :) I know I'm late to post but I still care :)

Cheese and wine. Well said. I think it's important to when you realize you're a little whiny to change it. It's okay to have a bad day but to consistently bring people down with your attitude is another.

Lol. Sometimes a girls just got to whine. I'm a big fan of whining to myself as I prepare dinner. A great cook, I'm not. Thanks for this funny repost ;)

Dr. Phillips says to give your son heavy doses of ice cream tonight.
