I Didn't Forget....
(My Mantra)

Last year I started a new Tradition for this blog: I decided that every New Year I'm going to post "My Mantra". I almost let it slip this year, but I believe this is still "under the wire". Happy New Year!!!


In this life, I am a woman.
In my next life I'd like to come back as a bear.
When you're a bear you get to hibernate...nothing but sleep for six months. I could deal with that.

Before you hibernate, you're supposed to eat yourself stupid.
I could deal with that.

When you're a girl bear, you birth your children, who are the size of walnuts, while you are sleeping...and wake up to practically grown-up, cute cuddly cubs. I could deal with that.

If you're a momma bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat anyone who bothers your cubs. If your cubs get out of line, you swat them too...I could definitely deal with that.

If you're a bear, your mate expects you to wake up growling. He expects you to have hairy legs and excess body fat. I could deal with that.
Yup...gonna be a bear.

Dream says.... "Me too!"

  7. Good plan! I intend to be a dolphin. Or maybe an otter. They always look like they are having so much FUN.
    (Hmm... why aren't we having fun NOW? Might be a good idea to do something about that!)

    Hee - my word verification now is 'flump'. Isn't that perfect, somehow?
