Thursday Thought: Routine

"If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten" ~. Anthony Robbins I'm a pretty routine person. I usually fall into a routine and stick with it for years. Lately my life has been shaken up with all kinds of new changes that are making me step away from the normal routine of my everyday life. Some changes were not preventable, some are decisions I've made. I am trying to take it all in stride and think positive. The changes I'm making, although new and sometimes scary, they are for the better and for my future. "A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, travelling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints." ~ Wilfred Peterson

Thursday Thought: Whom vs Who

“If the English language made any sense, lackadaisical would have something to do with a shortage of flowers.” ~Doug Larson Maybe it's just me but I still don't get why the words whom, whomever and whomsoever exist. Rule: Use the she/her method (or he/him) to decide which word is correct. That is, replace the who or whom with she and see if it makes grammatical sense. Choose who if the personal pronoun is in the subjective case (= I, we, he, she, it, they). Chose whom if the personal pronoun is in the objective case (= me, us, him, her, them). So which is correct? "Who/whom should I say is calling?" Rule doesn't matter, I still get it wrong at least half the time. The score from my Blue Book Quiz was 5/10 & I just took it today! What's your score? Take the Who, Whom, Whoever, Whomever Quiz ! From Grammer Goddess Seminars: Who / whom should I say is calling? Many people mistakenly say, "Whom should I say is calling?" By rewriting it slightly

Thursday Thought: Purpose

“A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.” – William Shedd My thoughts right now : Life's to short not to explore other options. Staying in this spot is making me restless.

Thursday Thoughts: Barbeque Bickering

"Discussion is an exchange of knowledge; an argument an exchange of ignorance ." ~ Robert Quillen It's July 2nd and my family still can't decide on the location of our annual 4th of July Family Barbeque. This happens every year, but this year it seems to be taking longer for everyone to just pull together. I don't think I need to say how frustrating that is. If they keep this up I may just take my children downtown and say forget it.

Thursday Thoughts

I guess there comes a time when every mother has to come face to face with their teenager and let them know who's boss. Mother/daughter relationships can be difficult during these years. This Thursday's Thought: "Mother Nature is providential. She gives us twelve years to develop a love for our children before turning them into teenagers." ~William Galvin The reason behind the thought: My daughter crossed a line last night. This line crossing showed blatant disrespect and has changed our relationship forever. My daughter turned 13 in March. It's only been a few months and one of my worst fears has already come true. The fear that she would one day forget how much I love her and how much I've been here for her through the years. I've never had a teenager before and this is all new to me, but one thing I am not going to do is play friends with her and allow her to disrespect me.
