For Better or For Worse

No this is not a post about marriage.  I am rambling and musing.  With time on my hands I am sprucing up the place.  For better or for worse that I do not know yet.  But I am loving playing around with free themes!!!

That also means I have moved some “furniture” around.  Virtual furniture is lightweight.  I can move here there and yonder and back again all without breaking a sweat.  I am the least techie tech type but I am not afraid to right click when in doubt.  Sort of like taking a multiple choice test … “When in doubt Charlie out”  Means select the c) answer.  Ha!  Fun times I tell ya.

This could be like me cutting my hair and no one notices.  Because I keep the same style (or lack there of).  Well that’s not exactly fair.  My hairdresser since October of 2006 always gave me a cut to keep me contemporary.  I have pictures to prove my evolution.  She also gave me a cut that basically styled itself.

I missed some appointments lately because of LIFE.  I also started to notice that my gray came back within days.  I could not afford the time to color my roots weekly (even if I had the money which I don’t because I am the other F word … frugal) .  Can’t fight city hall of the mane variety.  Time for acceptance.

In my usual hindsight is 20/20 fashion, I wish I had never gotten on the color train.  Or color boat.  Or color whatever vehicle of your choice.  Why?  Well because now I am having a painful transition.  That would not be the case if I had accepted myself all those years ago.  If wishes were buts and or candy then beggars would ride.  LOL.  See how I mixed up an idiom and a proverb.  Here are the real quips thank you Google you masterful search engine you.

“If ifs and buts were candies and nuts we’d all have a Merry Christmas”

“If wishes were horses, beggars would ride”

My therapist who I likely need to go back to again always told me not to waste a single minute on would’ve, could’ve, should’ve.  But oh how I like to wallow there in the land of regrets.  I don’t stay long anymore but I do go back to see my long lost friends.  My coping mechanism of expect the worst and you will never be disappointed.  Sort of similar huh?  Or not.

Whew! this felt good.  Better out than in as my old buddy Shrek is fond of saying.  Wishing you a wonderful peaceful Sunday.

As always, more to come.

For 7/28/19 ~ “You’re Welcome”

Jim gives us the prompt of a song featured prominently in a movie.  I was like huh?  Deer in the headlights.  Until I asked the brain trust aka the fam.  They offered the following from Disney’s Moana.  Snappy, has a beat, and you can dance to it.  lol

Here is a WIKI link for more details.

Lyrics:
OK, OK

I see what’s happening, yeah
You’re face-to-face with greatness and it’s strange
You don’t even know how you feel
It’s adorable!
Well, it’s nice to see that humans never change

Open your eyes, let’s begin
Yes, it’s really me
It’s Maui! Breathe it in
I know it’s a lot:
The hair, the bod!
When you’re staring at a demigod

What can I say except “You’re welcome”
For the tides, the sun, the sky?
Hey, it’s OK, it’s OK. You’re welcome
I’m just an ordinary demi-guy!

Hey, what has two thumbs and pulled up the sky
When you were waddling yea high?
This guy!
When the nights got cold, who stole you fire from down below?
You’re looking at him, yo!

Oh, also I lassoed the sun
—You’re welcome—
To stretch your days and bring you fun
Also, I harnessed the breeze
—You’re welcome—
To fill your sails and shake your trees

So what can I say except “You’re welcome”
For the islands I pulled from the sea?
There’s no need to pray, it’s OK
You’re welcome
I guess it’s just my way of being me

You’re welcome, you’re welcome
Well, come to think of it

Kid, honestly I could go on and on
I could explain every natural phenomenon
The tide, the grass, the ground
Oh, that was Maui just messing around
I killed an eel, I buried its guts
Sprouted a tree, now you’ve got coconuts
What’s the lesson? What is the take-away?
Don’t mess with Maui when he’s on the break-away
And the tapestry here in my skin
Is a map of the victories I win
Look where I’ve been. I make everything happen
Look at that mean mini Maui just tickety-tappin’!
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, hey!

Well, anyway, let me say you’re welcome!
For the wonderful world you know
Hey, it’s OK, it’s OK. You’re welcome!
Well, come to think of it, I gotta go

Hey, it’s your day to say you’re welcome!
‘Cause I’m gonna need that boat
I’m sailing away, away. You’re welcome!
‘Cause Maui can do everything but float
You’re welcome, you’re welcome

And thank you!
