We Really Only Need 4 Basic Things!!!

Today for my 44 I did a squat on a wobble disc – 

Wobble Disc

Just standing on the disc is a challenge for your balance!  I started with my hands reaching up –


then reached my hands down to my toes during the squat.

There were lots of wobbles before I completed all 44 of these!!!

And, Tuesday means Garage Boot Camp!!!  (not sure how fun this will be in the winter!!!) Today we did one of my favorites – ABC Boot Camp.  Because we have a shorter amount of time  than we did in the summer, we only did 1 minute of each move (in the summer we did 75 seconds).  Still a great workout!!!

Entitlement:  the condition of having a right to have, do, or get something  (Merriam-Webster)

More and more lately it seems that people feel like someone (that ubiquitous entity) owes them!  I don’t get it!!!

When our boys were little we told them they needed 4 things:  food, water, oxygen and love.

We made sure that they had all of those (I guess we didn’t really have much control over the oxygen thing!!!) things and everything else was just a bonus!!!

I still believe that we can boil our needs down to the basics – everything else (and there is plenty) is like icing on the cake, sunshine at the beach, the star on top of the tree!!  It’s EXTRA!!

Last Thursday (cleaning, set-up, ironing day), the bride of the weekend called me.  She wanted to know if they could have the venue (for free) Friday night since they had rented it for Saturday.  She felt like I “owed” her that even though the rental for a Friday night is completely separate!!!

I’m pretty sure if we book a hotel and then call them up and tell them they should let us come in a day early for free they would laugh and/or hang-up on us!!!

I think that we all need to remember that we can live with –

Happy Tuesday!!


PS – I let the wedding party have their rehearsal at the venue on Friday evening like the bride wanted.
