Loud and clear

I believe The Universe is speaking to me. What do you think:

I hear ya! Loud and clear.

Yeah to the nice Post Woman who stopped her vehicle to see if I was okay (well, since I was sprawled in the middle of the road, I guess she sorta had to).

Boo to the folks having a party in their front yard who totally ignored me falling flat on my face in front of them.

Who knew running was a contact sport? (and, yes, the "contact" was asphalt)

Do you have things in life that impede your progress? Get in the way, slow you down, keep you from your ultimate potential?

Yeah. Me too:

That's right. MY TOES. It's my toes that get in my way. Well, not all my toes. Just those stupid last 2 on each foot. They're always getting caught on things like, you know, chairs and such. Apparently, my toes like to jump out and grab things when I'm not looking. I'm embarrassed to admit this happens waaaaay too often. And, I've got to tell you, I don't enjoy it very much. It leads to much pain and agony (and lots of creative words too). And it sorta puts a kink in my running.

But at least this time, my im-pedi-ment coordinates well with my pedi, right?

Have you read this article?

Please, take a moment and read it. Then, take another moment and re-read it (it's short). Then, come back here and let me know your thoughts in the comments section.

It's an interesting and intriguing article. I'm curious about what you Cyber Bears think about it too...

What my life has become

As Papa Bear and I drove up to the valet stand on a recent (rare, but recent) date night, I commented on the humor of valet parking van. Not really a babe catching/hot date vehicle. Good thing Papa Bear already caught me!

Anyway, saw this video recently and it made me laugh. Hysterically. So, I thought I'd share it with you Cyber Bears.

This is what my life has become:

But let it be known, even though this is what my life has become, I wouldn't change it one bit.

Not one.

A, B, C...

The student council at Brother Bear's school is sponsoring a school wide countdown to the end of the year. They are using the alphabet and counting down the last 26 days with letter themed days (don't get me started on how ABCs aren't numbers and if you were to "count down" you would start with Z, not A! Bear Cubs thought this up...not Mama Bears. I'm trying to just go with it!).

Anyway, we are trying to reinforce the concept at home as well. At the dinner table, we are each saying a word that starts with the letter of the day.

Yesterday was the letter "C". Because I'm a busy Mama Bear and my brain isn't functioning quite as well as I'd like, I gave a little time to what my word would be.

When we sat down to dinner Brother Bear said, "I have 2 words!!" "My words are: contrary and colossal!"

And that is the point at which I just about melted. Why? I'll tell you why. Because the word I had come up with, the word that I had actually put some thought into?
