It's Always Something!

I am an eat dessert first person. The world seems to have an attitude about this sort of thing. Like it's defective thinking, but I'm here to tell you, the work will ALWAYS be there. The David Crowder Band? That hot Mustang on the lot? Not necessarily.

We all know the story of the ants, and the grasshopper. How the ants worked and the grasshopper played and had nothing to eat. But see? The grasshopper was fun. So the ants invited him over for a party. Seriously, for how long and continuously I work, it's hard to see myself as the grasshopper, but I've learned if my body needs a rest, it needs to restore. So I sit down and have some cake, watch some mindless TV and don't think about the "to do" list. I'll get more done if I'm restored. Are you an ant? Or a grasshopper? I'm a little of both. Actually, next week I'll be la cucaracha because I'm heading to Mexico. LOL

I used to eat dessert first, Kris, but I would fill up with sugar and not have room for anything else. Literally. So I had to change. Still, I like that you can still do it. LOL

Well, you don't have to worry about it. You're young. I have fat cells to feed.

I am DEFINITELY a grasshopper! Why should I work when I can play? After all, who has more experience at play than grown ups? I'm a "now" person rather than a "plan ahead" person. Unfortunately, my checkbook is proof.

That picture and quote CRACKED ME UP!!! Love it!!

I used to be an ant but in the last few months I'd say I've definitely become a grasshopper. All I want to do is party and eat chocolate. :-)
