ADVENTURES IN DANNYLAND PART II AND HAPPY NEW YEAR ...

SO ... for some freaking bizarre reason I have a ton of flies in my house.  I have no idea where they came from.  Either a hidden nest of larvae has just hatched in my condo or I there's a poltergeist in my house. 

After returning home from shopping Danny and I were greeted by five flies swarming all over my kitchen.  I HATE FLIES!  So Dan takes a dish towel and begins swatting at them like a man possessed and of course misses all of them.  He then takes a bottle of Windex and begins spritzing them like a crazy man. 

Me:  "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!?!"

Dan:  "I'm killing the flies."

Me:  "DAN WINDEX IS NOT GOING TO KILL THE FLIES!"

Dan:  "I know!  It stuns them.  They get all absorbed and drunk and then fall to their deaths."

Me:  "Oh my God."

(Just then he spritzed another fly)

Dan:  "LOOK!  LOOK!  SEE!  He fell from the ceiling!"

He then picks up the fly in a paper napkin and proudly shows me the dead fly.  

Me:  "WELL DON'T MASH HIM JUST TAKE HIM OUTSIDE!"

Dan:  "I don't care if I mash him I don't want him in here."

Me:  "DAN!  YOU'RE GETTING WINDEX ALL OVER MY FLOOR!"

After killing all the flies he takes off for the gym ... leaving me to clean up Windex residue from the floor, the kitchen cabinets, the ceiling and the counter tops.  THANK YOU.


 
ON TO 2015 ...
 
This year I am going to be VERY GOOD TO MYSELF.  I will buy clothes when I want to.  I will get facials when I want to.  I will buy boots and stuff that I normally would talk myself out of.  I will read spiritual books that feed my soul and help me to be a centered, kinder person who also is VERY GOOD TO MYSELF.  I will not indulge in negativity or toxic people.  I will say NO to myself whenever my thoughts wander toward unpleasant people and/or memories.  I will exercise ... not like a maniac so I can look 20, but like a person who loves themselves so I can be limber and strong and have good balance as I get older.  I will take time to meditate/contemplate/pray and be still.  This time I REALLY MEAN IT.  I will make a regular practice of being still.  A REGULAR PRACTICE.  This takes discipline.  Life always gets in the way of our finding a moment to be still.  We have to do it.  I have to do it. 

I will write more.  The more you do something the better you get at it.  It's science.  So I will write more.  It is the only thing I do for myself in which time seems to stand still.  To be fully engaged in something you love feeds you and serves you.  I like that feeling. 

That's pretty much it for me.  Oprah believes in keeping a gratitude journal.  Every day you're supposed to write something for which you are grateful.  That is a good idea.  I think I will do that too.  There is so much to be grateful for.  I don't know about you, but I can find plenty of things to worry about and fear.  I'd rather be at peace and grateful than scared and worried.  This, also takes discipline.  So I will try.  It is a proven fact that what you tell yourself your mind believes.  So tell yourself positive, beautiful things and your mind will believe what you tell it and you will become positive and grateful. 


I hope that 2015 brings all of you love and health, happiness and laughter, good times with family and good friends, beauty and peace.  It's a new year and anything is possible. 













Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
 - John 14:27

  2. You had me until you brought Oprah into it. LOL!!!!
    Anyway.
    I'd love to see a fly right now. It's been so damn cold, it feels like it will never be spring.
    I painted a sign that says "GRATITUDE in all things give thanks" I look at it every day.
    I hope this comment works. For whatever reason, some blogger blogs are SO hard to comment at!

CALIFORNIA ...

SO, recently California passed a law wherein we now have to use our own bags every time we go to the market or CVS or Rite-Aid, or wherever.  If you don't take your own bags you have to purchase one for 10 cents.  So if you buy a shitload of groceries, you're now going to have to pay an extra 40 or 50 or 60 cents on top of that .... to help the environment.  HOWEVER, here's the really smart part.  The bags they sell you are made of .... wait for it .... PLASTIC.  you know ... to help the environment.

If you're smart like I am, you've already purchased plenty of bags with handles made out of something (not plastic) but sturdy and reusable.  I have them in my car.  And every time I go to the market or CVS or Rite-Aid I completely forget to take them into the store with me, ergo, I end up purchasing MORE PLASTIC BAGS.  California.  Why people want to come here I have no idea. 



RHOBH ....

Holy Moly Guacamole Batman what the hell happened on RHOBH last night?!  Erika (“Jayne”) Girardi lost her shit!  I mean, she actually SHED TEARS.  Now I gotta say that she is one of my favorite housewives.She’s a straight forward-no bull-shit kinda gal and I like that, but apparently the “panty-gate” situation bothered her much more than she originally let on.  

If you recall, a while back at a housewives get-together with the husbands, Erika showed up sans underwear.  As fate would have it, Dorit’s husband P.K. (what the hell kinda name is that?) was seated in direct view of said bare crotch and stared at it all night long (PERV).  If that were my husband his pee-pee would have been severed, filleted and roasting on the patio BBQ.  But I digress.  
So this became THEE topic of conversation ALL SEASON.  Well, in order to bring a peace offering of sorts and little levity to the situation, a few weeks later Dorit purchased a pair of sexy, lacy panties for Erika and told her t…
