Don’t forget to stop and appreciate what you have….

Good Morning Sunshine☀️!!!  Don’t forget to stop and appreciate what you have…….. Sometimes, when we realize how truly blessed we are life gets a little easier.  All too often, I myself discover that I get wrapped up in the negatives of everyday life instead of realizing how truly blessed I am and how grateful I should be just as many of you do too.  These things, the blessings that I find within my life…within my children…within my friends and family…within my surroundings…within myself…these “Things” should always outweigh negatives and these are the “THINGS” we should all concentrate ourselves with, the positives instead of the negatives.

 

Take some time for yourself…some time to unwind…some time to reflect…some time to re-energize your soul…..do not let yourself get wrapped up in everything that is negative around you that you forget about yourself!  YOU are just as important as everyone else and YOU are blessed more than you realize!!!  When you realize your blessings, your heart feels fuller, smiles become easier and life becomes easier.  Hugs and much love to you all!!  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……Robin Robinson

we ALL make mistakes……

We all make mistakes…..good mistakes, bad mistakes and everything in between.  Mistakes happen everyday, trust me I’m full of them!!  These mistakes as simple or complicated as they may be do not mean you or someone else is a bad person.  It simply means that you/they are human and mistakes are bound to happen from time to time.  Just take a deep breath, exhale and then let it out…. Laugh, cry or even scream for a minute or two and then…. Deep breath, exhale and if it isn’t a good mistake start thinking of a solution and how to correct it!!

Do NOT dwell on something that cannot be undone, it is a Mistake.  There’s always a solution or a different way to look at the mistake…….it’s okay, worse case scenario you/they know exactly what NOT to do again and it’ll make for a great story and laughs at some point later down the road!!  Although, sometimes I swear it’s Dejavu and something I’ve already done once before…..lol….mistakes happen, don’t be too hard on yourself or others and look at the bright side…..it could always be worse!!  Way Worse!!  LoL  Hope you have a wonderful non-bad mistake kind of day!! Big Hugs & Much Luv from me 2 U – Thanks for Reading my Thoughts…….Robin Robinson

I am me….I am not perfect….It’s okay for you too to be who you are

🤣LOL😂…..this is SO me….if something is going to happen, if something is going to go wrong, if something is going to become complicated that seemed simple, if something is going to end up a bad idea despite it seeming like a great idea at the time…..this is me and this is my life…lol….

I am me but at least I can laugh about it even if it takes me a few minutes to breath deeply, reevaluate what has or is happening before I smile, shake my head and chuckle!!! LOL  It is okay to be you too!!  We do NOT have to be perfect, or even the best at most things, we can be silly and weird and don’t have be what others think or say we should be…….WE need to be ourselves and Happy, that is what truly matters!!  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……..Robin Robinson

When I’m Quiet….finding humor in every day

For some reason…….For some reason this makes me chuckle and smile a little crooked mischievous smile as somehow I feel a little connection with this meme!!  LoL 😉

You just never know what I’m thinking, what I may say next whether extremely stupid, funny, pertained to nothing being discussed, a good idea or a very bad one, if I am plotting against you in some way to bring laughter and a smile your way or whether I’ve turned to the dark side and am plotting your death..lol….just kidding!!😊  Or am I?!?!😇MwahahaahHaa……LoL….you just never know!!  LoL

Sometimes silence is golden, but NOT always in my case!!👍  Enjoy your day, find things that make you smile and laugh throughout your day as stupid as some of it may be…….it is better to laugh and smile at the world than to look and act like a grouchy old grinch!!  Just my morning thoughts this cloudy partially wet and cool Morning!!  Enjoy the Life you have and find the GOOD in Everyday!!  Much Luv & Hugs 2 U All.  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts………Robin Robinson

Ran out of gas 1-1-17….

1-1-17 … ALL I wanted to do was make Beanless Chili for the guys and some yummy Beef Soup for me today while watching football and doing odds and ends around the house!!! That’s IT!!! That’s all I wanted to do!!! It was foggy earlier, a little cool and it rained through the night so I opted out of golfing for today!! Well….in True “ROBINLY” fashion this happened!! 

Off to the grocery store with no problems, next was the Mexican Market with no problems, then off to get some fuel before heading home as I noticed it was Low but forgot to fuel up after the grocery store…no biggie as 76 miles to go according to the Cadi….um, guess again!! 

Yep!! Barely left the parking lot and it lurched and I knew I needed to turn around and head to the closest gas station!! Barely pulled to the side of the road to let a car go by before I turned around and that was it!! Cadi NOT gonna allow me to make it!! 

Well, per my typical luck Terry & Zach were on the golf course so I tried the neighbors!! Shannon & Brent to the rescue as soon as they got the ladies situated at their breakfast table!! Oh crap!! I interrupted their last family hours together before he has to head to the airport and back to work!! TRUE ROBINLY neighbor mishap but luckily I have them fooled and they like me anyways!!😊As I patiently wait for them to I admired the beautiful scenery as it could always be worse!!! 
Anyhow, small gas can emptied into the tank and off to the gas station I go as they follow me to make sure I make it then off to breakfast they go!! Thanks Guys!!! 

The Cadi now registers 87 miles until empty (really?!?! really?!?!)!!! As I begin fueling up…Clank, no more pumping gas….try it again, Clank does the same thing…hmmm, one more time but barely squeeze the handle and Clank once again!! Um, it isn’t pumping ANY gas but yet already charged me .76cents for air!!! Uh oh!!! Head inside to see what the YOUNGSTERS have to say is going on….per their words “oh ya, those pumps are having problems. Just pull around and try pump 1-6 and see if those work”!!! Um….seriously?!?? What the heck is going on?!?! I had NO Option but to try as I may or may not make it to the next gas station!! Thankfully pump 4 was nice enough to cooperate so I filled the Cadi!! 

Time to head home to safety……vroom vroom clunk clink “what the heck”?!?! Ha ha, oops, luckily the gas cap is attached as I forgot to replace and close the little door!! Oops!! Vroom Vroom and now home at last!!! Phew!!

Putting groceries away I realize I forgot juice, no biggie….then I realize I grabbed a black bean and a refried bean instead of two black beans for our tacos, oh well it’ll be ok…..then I realize I forgot the tomatos/sauce for the chili, um….um, oh well will try V8 instead as I’m scared to leave the house!!! It is now a STAY in the house and seriously contemplating wether cooking is even a good idea today or not!!! This is NOT how I pictured starting the 1st day of 2017!!! 

But, I am ME so I just gotta go with the flow!! LoL Once again, only me can manage to find the humor of my daily life mishaps!!! LoL Hopefully everyone else’s 1st day of 2017 is going much much better!!👍😉😋 Maybe I should have gone golfing but yet I may have somehow ended up in Ever sand bunker and water hazard out there and with my luck today I’d probably slip and have ended up slipping into the water with the “Cover Story of just fishing my ball out!” LOL 😂 Thanks for reading my thoughts……Robin Robinson

Christmas Eve Day Mishap and I’m still LAUGHING at myself!! 

DISCLAIMER: DO NOT ATTEMPT THE FOLLOWING What do these ingredients: Tequila, Peanut Butter, Lime & Serrano Pepper (cut in pan) have in common? 

It was Christmas Eve Day and the food prep had begun. One Serrano Pepper (seeds & membranes removed) cut up for the corn. NO spice at all so time for Serrano Pepper #2 but this time while thinking to herself, Robin decides that maybe some of the membrane and/or seeds should be included but first she should double check for any heat. (As she takes the smallest piece of membrane possible to test she is debating on wether this is a good idea or not but because the first one has NO heat to the Pepper at all it should be ok.) The small piece of membrane was slightly touched to the tip of her tongue and there was nothing at first followed by the most intense, on fire, burning sensation possible (Robin is a pansy when it comes to spice and this was WAY over the top!!) 
As Robin knew better than to drink water she fumbled around for something to help!! She found saltine crackers, a cookie, coffee, summer sausage and finally resorted to an ice cube to hopefully numb the pain!! While the ice cube was on the tongue the pain was relieved but once melted the intensity was in full force and had spread to her lips as she had been moving the ice cube back and forth and had apparently touched her lips with her on fire, Pepper oil laced tongue!!!! 

NOW WHAT?!?!?! No what was she suppose to do?!?! NO milk in the house to try and the burning pain was unbearable (kind of funny because deep inside she knew it was a dumb idea)!!!! GOOGLE!!!! GOOGLE was the answer, there must be some info on what to try online!! She quickly googled it and found a chart of “Do’s and Don’ts” and went into action with a giant jar of Peanut Butter!!

She quickly took a giant spoonful of Peanut Butter and plopped it in her mouth. She then smooshed it ALL over including on her lips in an attempt to help the burning sensations and control the flames that she was surely throwing out in every breath! (Terry and Zach were a lot of sympathetic help as they obviously laughed with her during her time of pain…insert heavy heavy sarcasm.) As the Peanut Butter was melting and liquefying in the heat it wasn’t helping!! So Robin decided it just sitting in her mouth and on her lips was NOT working so she quickly (as quick as possible with gooey sticky Peanut Butter) swallowed the Peanut Butter!! To her surprise the pain and burning had slightly subsided but was still extremely prominent and painful….what was next on the Chart that she had on hand? TEQUILA!!!

A “DO” for relieving the heat was Alcohol!!! (Please note that a big DON’T is Beer but Hard Alcohol is good.) “Time for Alcohol”, grabs the warm tequila and cuts a piece of lime. (You have to have lime with Tequila as it is yummier but NO time to chill just have to down warm!! Robin is apprehensive about Alcohol but willing to try anything at this point! The worse that happens is she just has to cook a little tipsy, she’s done that before so no big deal!!😉)

Here goes and down goes the shot after a quick swish around the mouth followed by the lime…..Hmmmmm, WOW!!! The intense Fire, Burning and Pain was gone from her tongue and just a little slight sting was left on her lips!! HURRAY!!!! HIP HIP HURRAY GOOGLE, PEANUT BUTTER & TEQUILA SAVED THE DAY!!! 

DISCLAIMER: While the above scenario is True and Factual, DO NOT ATTEMPT to Repeat just to see if Peanut Butter and Tequila really work!!!! LoL 

Just thought I would make a few of ya smile, chuckle, shake your head and/or laugh out loud by sharing my mishaps on Christmas Eve Day!! Hope you ALL had a wonderful Christmas!! Luv & Hugs to you ALL!! Thanks for reading my thoughts……Robin Robinson
