30,000 pounds of food!

Last Sunday 200 people got together, organized 30,000 pounds of food and then distributed it to over 2,500 people.

It was one of the most beautiful and incredible experiences I have ever been a part of.

ingenious or ridiculous?

My grandma's solution to dust-free water:

I love this woman!! There's little treasures like this all over the place :)

I would drive 60,000 miles..... and I would drive 60,000 more...

This blog has absolutely no purpose but to share my joy in the little things of life...

As I was driving out of a parking lot on Saturday night I realized that my odometer read 60,000 miles exactly! who cares right? haha I do! I was able to catch it right on the mile. You know how pissed I would've been if I had looked down and read 60,001 miles!? argh! I would've just missed it!

But I didn't! and I want to share the joy with every one of you :) (well, all 13 of you that ever read this haha)

Well that sucks!

I've been dealing with a few things over the past couple of days... things that everyone deals with, but plain and simple... they just suck.

1. You can't make a person feel one way or the other.

No matter what the situation or relationship, you cannot change how a person feels or reacts. I am usually a firm supporter of this, however on rare occasion... it just sucks!

2. When the child becomes the parent.

It just goes against the very nature of a parent/child relationship. Isn't it frustrating when you are stuck in a situation thinking, "Why am I the one who has to.... shouldn't they be the more mature ones... why am I having to deal with their unresolved issues?"

3. It takes two...

This pretty much goes hand in hand with #1, but it sucks when you try and try and try to rekindle a relationship but NO MATTER what you do nothing can be reconciled if the other person doesn't want it or doesn't try. and then you are left with, "do I give up?" "do I keep putting myself out there?" It's draining, but it happens... :(

Sorry to be a downer, but coming from someone who usually likes to control any situation I'm in it's been a pretty big smack in the face to realize that most things in life (at least the things that matter) are OUT of my control.
