I’ve learned

“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

My mom posted this on her Facebook page earlier this week. It fits so well with life right now. I’m sorry for my absence on Lazy Lady. Right now, I have to take care of Mr. LL and myself. I can’t really focus on anything else.

Life is a b*tch.

 

LIFE'S A BITCH.

I have yesterday’s Sunday Comics to post later today. I never got around to finishing it up this weekend. We had life come crashing down on us in the Lazy Lady household. Mr. LL is dealing with some family health troubles and a whole bevy of complications that are arising from it. All of that (we found out Saturday night) has kind of put everything else on hold.

I’ve been trying to comfort him the best I can, but I can’t take the weight from his shoulders, as much as I wish I could. So, I haven’t gotten around to blogging or even grocery shopping and cleaning the apartment (my normal weekend tasks). So, bare with me, folks. It’s going to be a hell of a couple of weeks.

Oh, and did I mention that my car has to go into the shop? Yeah.

Follow Friday, crazy week

This week was super busy for me. Between being hectic at the day job, working on a new freelance gig, and getting the other posts up for Lazy Lady, I just never got around to writing this week’s Follow Friday.

I find these posts take me a good bit to compose. I want to share how amazing these blogs are and why I love them so much, but I often find myself having trouble putting it into words! If we were in person, I’d just pull up whichever blog I’m talking about and show you how great it is; but because you are reading this post on my blog and have may never heard of the one I’m talking about, I have to get you to want to click the links. To discover further. Sometimes, I feel like I cannot do it adequately enough. And so, the post keeps getting pushed back to tomorrow then the next day and so on till it just doesn’t get done on a busy week like this one.

I hope next week I can share with you a new blog that you’ll love.

(I’d love to credit these images, but I can’t find the source!)

I found this strategy card game I’ve been meaning to try out and give feedback on to the creators. You can too! It’s called Mecha Mettle. (Also, here’s a link to all the components.)

This is a hilarious video about how to fight like a dog.

One of my favorite resources for all things board games, BoardGaming.com (and here’s my profile!).

Also, I would love to bring some of these to my next DnD night!

Don’t like to lose? Well, the next time it happens, you can always give the winner one of these.

Sausage and Potatoes

Awhile back, I promised a quick, easy recipe that I never delivered on. The reason for my broken promise is that we just never got around to making it. 😦 It’s a recipe we’ve made before, and we love it. I don’t have my own photos, so I thought I’d just link you to the Pin that inspired me.

We make our version slightly different (actually, Mr. LL took the lead on this recipe, so he knows all the details better than I do!). However, it is such a basic recipe that you can just as easily make it to suit your tastes as well.

So, without further ado, here is the link to Mom Foodie at blommie.com’s recipe for Home-fried Kielbasa and Potatoes Recipe.
