A "different" Look at History .... or Something Like That

George Washington was sailing the Delaware. He ran into the Boston Tea Party on his way to chop down a cherry tree so Abe Lincoln could build his log cabin on Mount Everest.

Benjamin Franklin lit two lights in the tower because the FRENCH WERE COMING bringing Lady Liberty.

This, of course, started the French Revolution which led to abolishing the slave trade.

Which led to William Shakespeare building the Globe Theatre where he performed "The Importance of Being Ernest."

Julius Caesar was so touched by the performance he built Big Ben in Shakespeare's honor.

Shortly after, William Wilberforce felt the need to write the Declaration of Independence with Paul Bunyan and Huck Finn.

This was to protect the rights of Betsy Ross who was charged with ringing the bell so hard it cracked (how was she to know, she didn't even have the right to vote).

And that's how the West was won

Lewis, Clark, and Sherlock Holmes set out to discover a cure for Malaria.

On their sojourning, they ran into Stonewall Jackson and Richard Simmons who were hiding out in a cave discovering the light bulb using caveman drawings.

Thomas Edison who discovered the printing press sewed together the flag that represented the thirteen colonies in Canada. He also witnessed the sinking of the Titanic as it attempted to float in the South Pacific and that's when Hawaii was discovered!

Thomas Jefferson came to rescue Lewis, Clark, and Holmes from their disastrous trip on the Mayflower where they all got Chicken Pox.

Pocahontas and Sack of Jo Wea (yeah whatever) were the first people to land on the moon and discover cheese.

Thanks to the discovery of cheese, the cure for Malaria was found.

Martin Luther nailed his 95 thesis to the door of the White House right before his "I Have a Dream" speech where the Teddy Bear was named after President Kennedy.

And that's how Puerto Rico was founded.

I thought this was about America

Shhh . . .

Somedays you gotta DANCE

Life has ups and downs, ins and outs. Something is always coming around the mountain. Are you sad yet? Hehehe okay it's time to be encouraged.
When things get cloudy and there doesn't seem to be enough sun to make things cheery, there is NOTHING wrong with standing up and dancing it out. Turn on something happy no matter what it is, it could be some sunshine and lollipops, Garth Brooks, Chris Tomlin, it could even be some High School Musical (I won't judge) just put it on and get out of those sweats! Reheat the coffee and pick up that 409 and clean your heart out! Don't let a little cloudy weather bring you down. Alright, now that we are determined to have some success, you may have to clean your house, do the laundry, dishes might be piled in your sink, home work might even be beckoning your name, you might even have kids who have jam hands from breakfast, you're idea of a mini vacation is taking a shower without someone bothering you, you may have a to do list the size of Texas ... whatever it is get it done. Conquer it, don't let it get you down but you just kick it to the curb, throw it to the ground.

Nice, pep talk huh?!?
Well I'm talking to me too ...

Yes I'm still wearing my sweats, my coffee is chilling somewhere in my house. I must find it. I wish it had an alarm like my car. I know it's sad, I don't have kids but yes I lost my coffee .. I think I'll blame it on my head cold, yes that's a great idea. Anything to help me feel like I'm not slowly losing my mind.

Sometimes I wish I could just sleep on my books and soak up the knowledge, that would be nice an uncomfortable nap but it would be nice. But since that won't happen I guess it's time to get some studying on ... finals week is about to begin but through it all I'm determined to DANCE through it!!

Alright, now that we know what we gotta do let's do it! Put on your rain gear, life gets a little messy but that's okay.. it's part of the fun and the adventure!

Where did ALL the motivation go?

What will today bring?

This is the question I ask myself as I am getting up ....

Then it hit me, today will be WONDERFUL... why? Because I choose it to be!
Today I will do all the homework I have successfully put off, I will have chai and watch Gilmore girls.
I am determined to get through the mounds of my "To-Do" list and have success waiting at the end of the tunnel!!! Repeat after me .. "The light at the end is not a train" hahaha. I can go forward without getting creamed. I think we are making good progress :).
I will get the milk for the chai heated up and my snuggie(yes, I said snuggie), put my Gilmore girls in, my school books out, laundry started and slowly but surely that evil To-Do list will get smaller and eventually go away.
I'm looking forward to that because right now that nasty little list is mocking me and telling me I should stop blogging and get things done ... why thank you. It's nice to know that inanimate objects can mock you so nicely. Now if I could just get my magic wand out like Cinderella's fairy godmother, clean things like Mary Poppins, sing a song and have non-creepy woodland animals clean my house .. wow Disney... wow. Maybe I could I dream of Jeanie it and just make the list go away... along with the chores on it. Since non of that will actually be happening I guess it would be time for me to do it myself ... time to crank up the music .. DO NOT OPEN THE WINDOWS (one day I will when it's not ANTARCTICA outside).. and get these chores done!
I would much rather curl up with a blanket, book and hot chocolate ... just relax. Well that was a nice thought but productivity calls and now I must answer it.
I think the list is actually growing now... seriously.. I just keep thinking of things I need to add to it. Welp so much for that positive attitude... I'm arming myself with chai and chocolate. I can CONQUER ANYTHING :).

There we go ... back on track.

Okay, here I go ... off to get things done! Be productive, I refuse to let my motivation leave me ... well I guess you should have something before it can leave you. Okay now I'm off to get motivated and beat that list. Here I go, full speed, on my way ...
Okay seriously.
