Back home. And, what’s done is done. The display I put on last week in the Peach State – then on a getaway to Amelia Island – is somewhat regrettable. I don’t even want to see the numbers. There is simply no sense in weighing myself until I fast all things edible for the next twenty-one days. At least. More to come on the Amelia Island getaway tomorrow.
I’ve received numerous e-mails – okay, two – requesting a posting on Bigmama’s thoughts. I always love coming home and visiting my almost 90 year old grandmother. Her words of wisdom are, well, they’re enlightening. I recorded a few of her comments the first day of my visit. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Upon complaining to Bigmama about the weather, she told me to “Hush. This is God’s weather!” So, I did.
When watching TLC’s “What Not to Wear,” Bigmama responded in defiance, “I’m gonna wear what I got!”
On the Playtex bra commercial: “They used to not show stuff like that.”
Parenting advice from Bigmama: “Don’t yell at your kids. It makes ‘em mad.”
After looking at my iPhone: “Show me how to press buttons on that thing.”
When learning how much the iPhone cost: “That’s not so bad if it’ll do all that.”
I have to agree with Bigmama. I can also appreciate that a woman who won’t buy canned salmon unless it’s on sale could actually justify buying an iPhone. She is a woman who surely knows how to prioritize her life.
