I read a story this week that I LOVE. It’s an old Taoist story.

 

There once was a farmer that had only one horse. One day the horse ran away. The farmer’s neighbors said “Oh that’s so unlucky.”

The farmer said “Maybe.”

 

Three days later the horse came back with two others. His neighbors said “That’s so lucky.”

The farmer said “Maybe.”

 

One of the new horses threw the farmers son and broke his leg. The neighbors said “That’s so unlucky.”

The farmer said “Maybe.”

Soldiers came to conscript all able bodied men and because of his broken leg the farmer’s son was not taken. His neighbors said “That’s so lucky.”

The farmer said “Maybe.”

  • Reading? The Widows of Eastwick. But, I think I’m gonna give it up. It’s just not holding my attention at all. I want to read Mayim Bialik’s Beyond the Sling.
  • Listening to? The Boy slurping my water from my cup he just stole from me.
  • Watching? G is watching Step Brother’s in the living room. I’m between shows and have cancelled my Hulu Plus, so I’m gonna start Family Ties on Netflix this week. My friends are trying to get me into Doctor Who, but it’s just not taking.
  • Cooking/Baking? Eh… This has been the week of deep frying, so healthier fare is definitely in order. Plus, my lettuces are coming in.
  • Happy you accomplished this week? I accomplished nothing! I mean, we worked on addition and subtraction and I did some laundry and I made some new crochet things and I made some Mother’s Day stuff for my mom. But, I didn’t do any of the crap I was planning on doing.
  • Looking forward to next week? Leaving for vacation. That means lots of laundry and cleaning this week to prepare, but then we’ll be leaving for 10 whole days!
  • Thankful for today? Nightgowns, yoga pants, my boy
  • *Bonus Question* Do you ever gamble, play the lottery, BINGO, sweepstakes, etc… Sometimes. I like the idea of gambling, but I hate losing money. I used to try to find some kind of formula to win the Pick 3 consistently. But, you know, randomness and all of that.

Ok, it’s your turn!!
