More Brown & Little Things

2 resolutions I have decided to make in my life-simplifying:

1.  Eat more brown.
You know, brown rice, brown pasta, brown bread.  Even as I'm typing this, I think, yuck!  I have a hugely terrible aversion to wheat anything.  Blame my mom for not making me eat it as a kid.  Either way, I am trying so hard to implement this into my cooking.  I've found that wheat pasta goes better with red sauce and brown rice does better when paired with something (like black beans).
I don't know if I will ever truly get over really grainy bread, though.  I hate it.  I try to convince my gag reflex that it is so much better than sourdough, but there's not much to be done there.

2.  Let the little things be, well, little things.
I have a tendency to over-complicate little tasks, and they quickly become stresses.  For example, cooking can just be throwing something edible together rather than making everything from scratch every single night.  And when I clean, it's ok to not get the baseboards every time.  The toilets and the sinks are good goals.  I need to learn how to take a chill pill (just one of many sayings from my loving father... added to this is "I don't give a rat's mustache!"  Thank you, dad.).
Oh, and evidently, some smart person is really selling chill pills.
Please, nobody get this for me for Christmas.  Or ever.  I promise, this would not make me chill.


    SO much


  2. I like Brown Bread... brown is healthy.

  3. cute redesign! :) And excellent resolutions. You're awesome!

  4. Love your honesty and the new look! What a refreshing testimony on simplifying and focusing on the important things in life. Glad you're back, friend! Missed you! :)

  5. I need a chill pill, too. My coworker told me today that I over-think things so much I make HER brain hurt. :-) But I'm right there with you, there's always SOMETHING to do or that can be done better. If you find the magic trick to make chilling out easier, please share! Haha.


Your words make my heart smile.
