Forgot the Words?

As a singer, my biggest concern is whether I will forget the words. However, the show must go on, regardless of a temporary (or longer!) lapse in memory!

The ever-talented Ella showed us just how it could be done with "Mack the Knife." This is one of my favorite songs by Ella... Listen for yourself, as she sings, and I quote Ella, "...we're making a wreck of Mack the Knife." Ella - you created a masterpiece of entertainment!

Who didn't line the cereal boxes up straight?!

Just about out the door. Running late. Hmmmm. Are there any nutritious and yummy breakfast snacks I can grab? Pantry door open. Looking.... No! There are cereal crumbs on the shelf and... I can't believe it! The containers are not lined up and the lids are not closed all the way!

mis-aligned cereal containers

Haven't I trained my kids and hubby better than that? Don't they care that I like to have the cereal containers straightened and placed on the correct pantry shelf? I should wake up the kids now to let them know, in case they forgot. Or, I should write it on my calendar to call them later and remind them, so that I am considerate of their sleep needs. Why weren't they considerate of MY needs?

Ok, get a grip! What is the goal here? Is it orderly pantries or valued relationships? Do I really want my daughters in therapy later in life because of a misaligned cereal container?

Stop. Check attitude. Remember how much you love the people in your life. Ok, NOW I'm ready for my day. :D

Wait, one more thing. Make note on calendar to "Check attitude before starting day."
