Well, I kind of forgot about this news report until this weekend. On Saturday I was a total grump. Really not pleasant to be around (just ask my co-workers!). So when I got home, I decided I was going to try not complaining. Not for 21 days, not even for a week, just from about 4:30 - 6:00. Let me tell you, it was HARD! I never realized how many things I grumble about. Not big huge complaints, but something as simple as "it sure is cold in here" or "I'm hungry". I managed to make it until 6:00, but I did nap for 45 minutes of that 90 minute time frame. And the other 45 minutes consisted of me saying things like, "I feel so tired..I'm not complaining though! Just stating a fact." Somehow I don't think that counts as not complaining!
I challenge you to try not complaining for a whole day. Maybe most of you are not as easily aggravated as I am, and will therefore have no problem abstaining from a few rants about the annoyances of your day. Honestly, I really didn't realize how quick I am to complain about things until I made a concerted effort NOT to. If nothing else, I am now aware of it and I am trying to be generally more positive. But how anyone could go a full 21 days without one gripe seems almost impossible! I wonder if silently mumbling to yourself is allowed.

Pretty ingenious really. Did I mention that I want one?

This little kitty bed. It's just so stylish! The cool baroque cover is sold separately, in a variety of colors. Check them out here: Rondo cat bed
This one is just a bit more space-aged and comes in a few different colors as well. They have shorter ones that work for little pups, too! Check them out over here: Modern pet beds
These retro numbers would be great for a feline friend or a pooch. Bubble bed
And none of these would I find embarrassing to have in my home. Nestor's happy. I'm happy.

First of all, I can't bring myself to eat anything with "blast" in the name. It makes me think of unpleasant moments post-dining that really aren't very appetizing. Not to mention, I'm not a fan of canned foods that come equipped with a spray nozzle. Like Easy Cheese, for instance. Yuck. This must be advertised at 3 in the morning, when people with sleep deprivation are really hungry and not thinking rationally. Who else would buy it? And it seems weird to me that it is organic. Why bother, you know? It's pancakes in a can, for Pete's sake! This is such a strange concept and kind of repulsive, although I will admit that I'm getting quite a hankering for pancakes...made from scratch, thank you very much.
If you want to try them click here: Batter Blaster and make sure to watch the demo...it's "amazing".

Seriously, if you go to Sweden pick me up a pair in 7 1/2 (that's 38 EUR) and don't tell my wallet!

An apartment building in Tokyo. Surpisingly enough, not Tokyo Disney, just Tokyo.
An apartment building in Slovenia. I never would have guessed!
This is no Barnes and Noble. It's the Kid's Republic bookstore in Beijing.
An animal shelter in Amsterdam. Oh, to be a Dutch kitten!
And then, to round things out with the cutest, most colorful picture yet...my boyfriend's nephew, Isaac, in his Halloween construction worker costume.
I mean, does it really get any cuter than this?
