Things I would like to say "screw it" and do anyway.

I just did something really bad.

Something I haven't done since in about 10 years.

Something that I have been advised time and time again NOT to do by my mother, my sister, my husband, my children, strangers, and even public service announcements. And I did it... unprotected.


In the sunshine. With no sunscreen.

And I enjoyed it. Immensely.

Soaking all all those Vitamin D rays.

And frankly, I really could care less if my little indiscretion results in me looking like this lady in about 30 years. I don't live at the beach... I live in Idaho... seriously... I don't think it's even possible for me to get enough sun to look like this lady.

She does have some sweet belly button boobs.

The tanning got me thinking about several other things I would love to say screw it too.

Next on the list, traffic. I hate sitting in traffic. If I had all the time in the world I would say "screw it" and drive on the outskirts of town, on the country back roads, taking the long way everywhere I needed to go. Just so I would never have to sit in traffic, or wait at a traffic light.

And of course if I did that I would then have to say "screw it" to speed limits. Seriously.

I'm not talking about putting the pedal to the metal and screaming across country at 130 mph, I'm talking about driving back country roads, with the windows down and the wind in your hair, and not having to ever worry about if I'm going over or under...

"Is that car coming up on my fast cause I'm going too slow, or are they speeding?"

"Why is that car going so slow, am I speeding??What is the speed limit anyway??"

I just don't want to have to think about it. ever. Worrying about the speedlimit destroys the joy of driving. I wonder if anyone has ever sued the goverment over the destruction of the pursuit of happiness because of speed limit restrictions? If I were the judge I'd award damages.

Big damages.

That's it for now.

Hair color
Eating right
Changing the oil
Wedding receptions--that's right, I don't want to go to your reception or get you a gift.

hahahahhaaahhhaha! I can't believe you put wedding receptions on the list!

What I want to add to my list?

Being nice when I don't feel like it.


Tolerating other peoples obsessive compulsive neurotic behavior

I have never told you not to tan. I worry about skin issues when the sun is involved because I burn VERY easily. The kids got a little of that from me so I don't want them to deal with what I delt with as a kid.
If you remember right, as a kid I had the startings of skin cancer. I had a large black spot on my shoulder that disappeared over time of VERY CAREFUL sun care.
