There have been several things this week that have caused me to be sad! Things that are out of my control. Things in peoples' lives that I cannot fix. I get that life is not fair but dang it stinks sometimes! It is just so frustrating!!! I am the type that wants to fix everything but that is not always an option. For now, I will just do what I can.
So, in the midst of all the sadness, let me tell you, that when I open up my kitchen cabinets it makes me smile! I got new dishes!!! Our dish situation was really pitiful and I have been looking for months at the Fiesta dishes online. I also had driven all over town on two occasions trying to find some that I liked. It was to the point where Chris was about to go buy some himself if I didn't do it. I was totally inspired by Rachael Ray. You know I haven't missed an episode. Her kitchen is full of color! Love it! I just couldn't decide what colors I wanted. Chris didn't get the "colors" thing. He thought I should just pick one and be done with it. I don't do decisions well. I don't usually go against his opinion. Because his opinion is usually a good one. I kept putting items in my online "shopping cart" so I could see the colors together. Then of course showed it to him, hoping for feedback. I guess he got sick of hearing about it for so long that he finally said to order them and it didn't matter what color or colors, just do it! So, I did, I did! I really, really like them and so does he. He told me that I made great choices in color and that he really likes them. Whew, I am so glad! You may be thinking that it is just a plate and that I am silly, but to me it was a big deal!
Jax was as excited as I was. He unloaded the dishwasher and loaded the new dishes so that he could eat dinner on an orange plate. Orange is his favorite color. Hunter orange to be exact.
