I remember as a tyke wanting to be wise.
and reading that wisdom comes with age and understanding. I was continually trying to rush into the future, and pushing myself to understand things. Only to realize, some things cannot be rushed and there are some pretty confusing things in life.
I would like to take the time to capture a few thoughts, and things I have realized as I have matured.... :)
Wisdom isn't always the high and lofty advice of disciplined and educated men, the likes of King Solomon, Buddah, Mahatma Gandhi, or Einstein. It goes without saying, that these men will add great value to our own lives if we only take the time to consider the wisdom of their observations....just saying..
Life experiences can also bring wisdom. Consider this: as a youngster I was all about the right tool for the job. Can you even begin to imagine the size of my toolbox? And yes I would stress about this and obsess, about which new shiny tool I would need, and what my next job would entail...
With age I have realized the there are only two things needed in my tool box... WD40 and duct tap. The WD40 is for the things that are tight and won't loosen, and the duct tape is for the things that are loose and won't tighten... "O" and a hammer, because if it can't be fixed with a hammer, it's an electrical problem.
(Rach in: I am totally laughing my elbutt off)
(Mr. Daddy in: SCORE!)
Consider this on marital harmony, I have decided that it is pointless to argue on the etiquette and proper position of the toilet seat. I let Rach win on this one and just pee in the sink... *snort* And yes I hear the collective gasp in bloggy land, but consider this ladies, has your beloved given up arguing about this little issue in your own homes??? Think on it to your mental peril... ~chuckling snidely here girls~ perhaps your own Dear Husband is gaining in wisdom....And if you ever come visit our little corner of paradise, maybe you should wash up in the kitchen sink.... ROFL (just kidding ladies... *maybe*) *snort*
(Rach in: No way. Just NO WAY. Now THAT would explain why your mother always bleached her sinks.)
(Mr. Daddy in: Mom bleached everything.)
A thought for the kitchen: To avoid cutting yourself, have someone else hold the vegetables. It is simply AAHH-mazing how effectively this has worked for me. Although I have had to take a few minutes out of my busy schedule to make a run to the ER for other members of the household... :)
(Rach in: And this with an already accident prone wife…)
(Mr. Daddy: You’re welcome Dear)
And Dear, there is a logical and perfectly sound explanation to the picture that you tried to shame me with on your last post. If you put the roaster pot in that way you get a moister cut of meat from one end and a drier cut from the other, thus saving time and effort for your distinguished guests... (who for some reason have started insisting on using the kitchen sink to wash up in???)
(Rach in: Oh Lordy… I’m actually more bothered by the fact that you cut your meat with your pocketknife…)
(Mr. Daddy in: Whaaat? It’s a TOOL, dear.)
For the medicine cabinet, If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives. Then you'll be afraid to cough. Now before you all go getting in an uproar, I know it sounds like crappy advice, butt if you will put yourself out there to try it, I am quite certain you will agree to the effectiveness of said method.
P.S. please don't choose to visit our corner of paradise while undergoing this treatment!! just saying....
Also For high blood pressure sufferers ~ simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure on your veins. It is important to remember to use a timer if you decide to try this method of treatment.
If you have trouble springing from your bed, all bright eyed and bushy tailed, and your snooze button is your nemesis... just put a mousetrap on the top of your alarm clock...You will be AAAHHhhhmazed at how quickly you will spring from your bed ready to talk to God and start your day....
Thanks for letting me share a few of my little insights, and consider the words of ~Piet Hein~
"The road to wisdom? Well, it's plain and simple: Err and err and err again. But less and less and less."
And also the sage wisdom of Red, Green: "If the women don't find you handsome, let them at least find you handy."
You all take care out there.
(Rach in: And no peein’ in the sink)
(Mr. Daddy: In the name of marital bliss… I’ll pee anywhere I need)
