Meanest Fortune

This pic has nothing to do with the post, but I WANT ONE!!!

“Never corner anything meaner than you.”
I am going to start off by apologizing for how long it has been in-between posts (and Book Blurbs – which I know I will never catch up on, I may just have to hop around), life has been moving all around me.
Since my last post, I have gotten my oldest son to college – a whirlwind trip to be sure and my wallet is still reeling! My middle Tart has started his sophomore year of high school and little Frosting has begun Pre-K with a new teacher. I lost part of a tooth and got a crown (temp right now)…paid a king’s ransom for it! Honestly I could probably go on and on…can’t we all.
So, with all this I pull out this fortune, “Never corner anything meaner than you.”
I could complain all day long, but there are some really wonderful things that I am grateful for! I have a son in college, another in high school and one in Pre-K. I was able to get a tooth fixed. I have two good jobs and co-workers that I truly enjoy working with.
What exactly do I need to corner? What is meaner than me? I need to corner the dirty rotten scoundrel that stole my old checkbook information and is cramping my style…I don’t like having all this hanging over my head. Might consider taking on the cable company to figure out why my bill is so high when I don’t have any premium channels. 
Probably the meanest thing I need to corner is MY HOUSE! The clutter monster continues to try to take over…I have read tons of tips on how to tame it, but that critter just won’t quit. It is MEAN! If I turn my back for a minute (or two or a couple of days), it just seems to spread like mad.
So basically…I may have to ignore this fortune and corner it.
Thanks for checking in – I’ll be making my rounds and trying to catch up!

PS…there are no lucky numbers on the back of this fortune. Now, really…that’s just MEAN!


  1. I, too, sent my son off to college just last weekend. The expense is mind boggling but God is seeing that we can meet every expense as it comes, for this I am thankful. Hope the school year starts well for everyone. Blessings.
