Weekend thoughts...

I love coming across quotes that make me go "wow. WOW. " Sometimes they're inspirational, sometimes they're funny, but usually when I run across certain sayings it's exactly what I need to hear at that time. This one I think I read in Glamour earlier this week while trying to step out of the funk. I love it.

"I must learn to love the fool in me--the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my fool." -- Theodore I. Rubin, MD

so there you go.

Things of interest:
This weekend is a PLT weekend. The oldest nephew is turning 10. Wow. I remember when we would watch Jungle Book til all hours of the night because he loved it so much. And then it was Ice Age and he would say all of Sid the Sloth's lines and I would be Manny the moody mammoth. so he's just a forehead shy of being as tall as me and we talk about how awesome the Dark Knight and cumulonimbus clouds are. hold on. I need a minute. While I take a minute, take a look at the cuteness that is John Anthony.

Sister's bday is on Sunday and since I'm refusing to make another trip home next weekend, we're going to celebrate Father's day a Sunday early. So Sunday is day o'party. They might throw a little piece of cake in there for me too, even though I've discussed with my father that i'd rather have roasted corn than cake. He's making some calls (this time of the year I could eat roasted corn for every single meal. I don't even mess with the butter or seasonings--just give me an ear of corn and i'm happy as happy can be.)

Hope everyone has a nice, relaxing weekend!
