Bye long

I having been thinging about things all wrong. Well, let me start at the beginning. I have been thinking about karma...but in an angry way. I have had angry thoughts towards some certain people, all the while thinking oh karma will get them for being so horrible. But really the two best quotes I have found sum it up ""Karma is not just about the troubles, but also about surmounting them." and "Those who are free of resentful thoughts surely find peace."- Siddhartha. So I am breathing in and out....trying to let go of those angry feelings. It is toxic.....bye bye bad energy. Bye bye. Life is good. Be happy. Send those same good vibes and energy to those who need it. Bye Bye In the meantime, if you are so inclined...there is an online karma quiz you can take to see how you are doing. Here were my results.
Rebecca, Your Karmic Alignment is: Zen Intuition! Zen Intuition
Score: 19 You have a direct perception of truth. You are very keen and don't use it to take advantage. When you commit positive deeds, you don't do them to get ahead, you do positive deeds simply because it makes you feel good. Your intentions are almost always meant well and all this positive karmaic energy is bound to come back to you in a great way!
Bye Bye....we are done.

The Discovery of More Genetic Traits (Part 2)

Further evaluation of my children's genetic heritage has revealed more traits that were passed from Josh and I to our little monkeys. Unfortunately, these two traits that were recently discovered are not ones you want your kids to have.
The first one we call THE COIN SLOT trait. This gene is found on chromosome 7 and goes by the name BUTCRK. Poor Kendall got this trait from the maternal side. We are still searching for a cure.

Then there is poor Mason, he got the genetic trait CLUMZDANSIR, again from his mother's side (his dad doesn't dance..his dad has the MEWHITEBOYNODANZ gene.) And unfortunately, the poor little Masonator was dancing liking a madman and bonked his forehead. I suppose the cure for that will be to listen to his Dad's music, because his mom's music makes him want to dance.

Okay here's the deal

I don't want to die or anything, but being as I have been lax in getting a WILL together...I thought I would put a couple requests out there so that there will be no confusion. (I am having a deja vu moment...did I already do a post about my funeral?--Oh well doesn't hurt to keep ya'all updated.)
1)I don't want a funeral. I want a party. Not a little party---A big huge arse party. With fireworks...if I could plan to die on or near the 4th of July, I would. I just have a thing for fireworks. and summer. and brats. and fireflies. OHHH and lots of sparklers. I like sparklers.
2)I want a band at my funeral that plays good, rockin music(NO Hayseed Dixie JOSH!). And I wants kegs, and margaritas and wine and sticking with the Smith-side tradition--some Irish whiskey.
3)I don't want any crying. Just laughs....YOU HEAR ME....ONLY LAUGHING. In fact, I will not even allow kleenex at this party.
4)I want maybe a theme of some flipflops and cowboy boots.....No suits or black.
5)I want REALLY REALLY GOOD food served. And a candy and dessert table the size of Alaska.
6)Okay actually, I want an ice cream truck to also away ice cream and donuts and cinnamon rolls and lots of the cheap crappy candy I love.
Thanks for abiding my wishes. Peace.

A couple of things I am giving up (or at least thinking about it)

Recently I had something happen where one person presented some fairly strong opinions about me and sort of how I parent. Well, I took it kind of personally and for days have been thinking about it. To say it didn't bug me would be a total lie.
So anyways, WE US YOU ME...we go through life and we judge people on so many different things. As a woman and mom, I find it particulary interesting how harsh woman are towards each other. Everything from how much time to how little time you spend with your kids. From breastfeeding to formula feeding to epidurals and drug-free births. Then you have your stay at home moms and your "career" moms and the people that don't want kids. The juxtapositions are so wide and varied.....
BUT WHAT IT ALL COMES DOWN TO IS...why the hell are we all so hard on each other? The reality is...we have our ups and why do we have to make things even harder by putting others down just because "I do it differently then them." Why do we have to put pressure on others to be "like the rest of us" when in fact....WE ALL DO IT DIFFERENTLY.....
I guess what I am getting at, is that going forward, I myself am I going to work hard to not judge others. I will be the first to admit that I have judged and had judgement cast on me....but the reality is that YOU never know the whole story. So a new goal for 2009 is to accept people for who they are.....
I remember before I had kids, I would be at Target and hear a kid screaming in the toy aisle and, those parents really should calm their kid down. Or I would see kids with boogers smeared across their face and think, the parents should really take better care of their kids. My kids have cried in Target and I can't tell you how difficult it is to get those boogers wiped up......
So anyways, all you women and moms I know.....I think you are doing a fantastic job.
