|never a dull moment.|
I had just come back from a mindfulness walk (wherein I also- on my #ForrestGump- sat on a park bench for no less than 30 minutes doing my best to become ‘present’ #TheStruggle #ItsReal) and found Gia and my mom in the back room. As I shared the non-revelations I had during my walking meditation, Boog interrupted us with her usual antics (i.e. posing like a super model, roundhouse kicking the shit out of everything, and teaching old women how to dance) and at some point, Mom shared that while I was away, “Gia had a runny nose.” Before I could say ‘antihistamine’ Gia immediately jumped up from her Ninja Turtle battle and excitedly shouted, “Mommy, I’ll show you” and took off running – to the bathroom, I assumed, but no. She ran from one end of the room to the other and back while undoubtedly pointing at her nose. It only took me three laps to realize what she was doing and #iDied. Get it? Runny nose? That’s hubby’s child.
P.S. Grandma has been telling folks for days that there’s a bat in her house. Her sons searched high and low, and when they couldn’t find it assumed it was the ‘old-timers’ kicking in. Well yesterday, my uncle walked in to give her some meds and there Bruce Wayne hung – a damn bat in the archway to the dining room.
Seriously. That happened. Of course now Grandma is all like “and y’all think I’m crazy…” Moral of the story: If someone tells you they saw a bat, believe them.
P.P.S. You know that book? The one you read in one sitting and feel like it’s the first day of the rest of your life? No? Just me? Download ‘The Power of Now’ or ‘Practicing the Power of Now‘ today. Don’t worry, I’ll wait. Then we’ll talk about it later. The take away- I learned that I’m NEVER in the present moment. Never. Not ever. I’m working on that tho. I digress. Have a happy Thursday!
