Let’s get the bad stuff out of the way: I suck at sports, I love crappy comedy flicks, and I dance like a drunken chimpanzee. Okay, for those still on board “Please stand clear of the doors. Por favor manténgase alejado de las puertas.” Score bonus points with this guy if you know where that quote is from.
A couple of years ago, my daughter and I were at Walt Disney World in the Magic Kingdom. We were waiting to get onto the Dumbo ride (before they moved it). A gentleman of about 80 helped his wife aboard, and then got in himself. The ride started and we could hear the lady making excited sounds like a child. "Weeeeeeeeee, aahhhheeeeee" the whole ride. She laughed and was clearly happy. The ride came to a stop and the cast member got everyone else off but let them stay on for a second round. The same as the first time, her excitement was obvious.
This time when the ride came to a stop the gentleman climbed out. He assisted the woman getting out. He then turned to the crowd. He thanked the crowd for their patience and told us that was the first time he'd heard his wife's voice in several years. The crowd was clapping and cheering. In one fluid motion he removed his cap, bowed to the crowd before offering his wife an arm. They walked off slowly, arm in arm toward the Mad Hatters Tea Party. I knew that I was seeing true love.
I want to have that kind of love. I don't think you ever outgrow, Walt Disney World. You just see it differently.
I love walking into the house and smelling dinner that is almost ready. There’s an app for that, from the Food on the Table app.
4-Ingredient Crockpot Chicken
4 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 envelope of onion soup mix
1 12 ounce bottle of Russian dressing
½ of a 12-ounce jar of apricot jam
Mix all ingredients together in a crockpot; then add chicken. Turn the chicken several times until it is all covered with the sauce mixture. Cover and set your crockpot to start cooking on low 6 hours before you plan to eat. Serve over rice. Grab some Salina Lettuce out of the pebbles of my aquatic garden. Add some radishes, onions and carrots from the greenhouse and dinner is served.
I’ve got an eleven-year-old daughter that means the world to me. Often, we have a five-year-old for the weekend or our outings. I have decided to only date single mothers. My experiences so far with those that don't have children haven't worked out. People that have children understand and look at things differently. I fully understand and respect that they are the number one priority in your life. Hopefully, you can understand and respect that my daughter is very important to me.
Let's swipe a airliner, fly to Atlantis, use SIRI to determine when the next solar eclipse is then threaten to block out the sun unless they build high altars to us... or we could just get a cup of coffee.
