Things that get under my skin

1. People who live in Utah that complain about all those dang Mormons around. That's like going to Canada and saying "Yeah, it's a nice place but there are these dang CANADIANS everywhere! What's up with that?" FUF, we moved here first, we have dibs. You don't like it, GIT OUT!

2. I am a RealWoman TM, so bridal shops were going to charge a small fortune for “special sizes.”
Last time I checked, there are no FakeWomen (TM). Women come in all shapes and sizes. Call them thin, call them fat (OH NOES NOT THE "F" WORD!) but please don't insinuate that a woman is more real than others based on size. Honestly, just DON'T.

3. My stomach giving me crap (oh yes, literally) and I have a party to go to. Seriously, I don't get out enough and then my stomach hits me with this.

Oh well, at least Monty Python And The Search For The Holy Grail is on.

Mary Poppins had it right.

I have a lot of things to do in life that are not fun. I have realized a while ago that unless it's 'fun', it's not going to happen. If knitting isn't fun, then I'm not going to knit. If writing isn't fun, I'm not going to write.

If working as a nurse doesn't have moments of fun, I'm NOT going to continue doing it. So, the challenge is, how do you make things fun? How do you make your chores fun? How do you derive satisfaction from doing things you don't necessarily like to do? Should you find reward in the doing and getting it done? Or should you reward yourself once it's finished? Which is easier?

What do you think?
