Big Girl Panties

Well, that title oughta get this blog a lot of hits.
:)

But I have to do it.
Time to put 'em on.

Things are going on, things that are not making me happy, but things I cannot control, things I have to learn to accept, things I have to live with. Nothing life-threatening, and in the end, I will be probably be glad these things happened, these things that are forcing me out of my comfort zone - things I won't talk about here, except to complain about the unfairness of life, the annoyances & aggravations we are forced to put up with. I've been doing just that to the lovely, lovely Katie, who looked at me last night and said well, time to put on your big girl panties & deal with it. I looked at her - I am so blogging this, I replied, and we laughed and laughed.

She is right.
Time to put 'em on.
But if I gotta wear 'em,
they're going to be pretty.
With ribbons.
wish me luck
