- Being white doesn’t automatically make you a racist.
- Being a man doesn’t automatically make you a sexist.
- Being a heterosexual doesn’t automatically make you homophobic.

I would SO drive on this highway and I would not be sorry at ALL. :D
In honor of the ladies who have motivated, paved the way and given hope to so many of us, we rounded up powerful quotes from some of the world’s most inspirational women.
I have cool stuff on my BiPolar Smile Blog, believe me, it’s lots of great reposts and cool arty, gothy, nerdy stuff and I like being in a certain mood and getting into it.
But I feel strange when I post real day to day stuff here, when I post my UnFuck Your Habitat stuff (cleaning and organizing my life, my house, garage and even my life) when I post about health and my struggles to get more of the good variety. I want a place to talk about recipes, crafts, art, cleaning, and a place from which to offer support to others so they can see that I do understand.
So yeah that is what the UnFuckTRinasEverything blog is about.
Check it out..though there isn’t much there yet :-)
For every “deadbeat dad” or abusive father there are so many more good decent men who care for their children not just because it is expected but because they honestly want to
We need to be more fair to these men, to the good guys, fathers or not who are decent caring people, the average guys who give it their best, the honestly nice guys who often don’t understand why they are being vilified by being lumped in with assholes and jerks.
And while we shouldn’t HAVE to sing the praises of good men it definitely doesn’t hurt to remind both women and men that decent is a pretty damn good thing to strive for
Just made chocolate banana protein mousse
16 oz of silken tofu
1 large package Sugar Free chocolate fudge pudding mix
1 1/3 cups milk (almond or coconut milk will work)
1 or 2 scoops of protein powder (I like vanilla nectar)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 or 2 very over ripe bananas
Mix the sugar and cocoa in 1/3 of a cup of whatever milk you are using
In the remaining cup mix the protein powder then the pudding mix and blend all the milk, beat until smooth
Blend in the silken tofu and mashed bananas until very smooth (be sure to scrape the bowl with a large spoon a few times as you mix)
Put the mousse into individual cups and if you want garnish with banana slices and/or chopped nuts.
You could make this banana pudding as well by using 2 small boxes of banana pudding and 4 over ripe bananas, the same amount of milk, no cocoa and you shouldn’t need extra sugar…use vanilla protein powder if you want
It would be a great pie filling garnished with banana slices
Here is the no bake crust I want to try since I can’t do wheat
1/2 cup almonds or pecans chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup quick oats (or sub shredded coconut)
1/2 cup raisins
Put those ingredients into a food processor and pulse until well blended….pat down into the pan and cool in the fridge for 20 mins before filling
My declaration: I deserve to be happy.
And in the long run I am the only person who ensures that that happiness happens, I control not just how I see the world, but how I react to it.
I control over how I treat myself both physically and mentally, and while outside influences may make it difficult at times to take proper care of myself, my health and my joy, they will not stand in my way unless I allow them to.
I have control over how I treat others, and I have the right to insist that those people I allow into my personal life treat me with the same respect I give to them and others.
If I want to be truly happy I need to make it happen, that means intentionally bringing good things and people into my life, it also means removing those things and people that cause me to doubt my worth, who treat me with less respect than I would treat any friend or that would bring unhappiness to me.
I decide to be happy, and I am the person who is responsible for making that happen.
Being kind, being giving and generous make me happy.
Being artistic and creative and sharing what I do and what I know makes me happy
Being aware of the beauty in the world, both obvious and odd, makes me happy
Being around people who treat others well and share their joy makes me happy
Being healthy and being comfortable in my body and my environment also makes me happy
Spreading happiness and laughing with others makes me happy
I can choose to bring about the small changes in my life, in my environment and my viewpoint, that will help make me happy or I can allow outside influences and internal doubts to taint my joy.
It is up to me.
Not everyone who asks “but how do I make my bed if…?” is being a smartass. I, too, was once genuinely stumped about how to make the bed if my ladyfriend was still holding half of the comforter captive in her sleep. I have learned much since then:
HOW DO I MAKE MY BED IF…
- …There’s still…
Sleep, or at least no moving/cleaning for the next hour, leg muscles are killing me.
It is 3:45pm, I have been going nearly non stop cleaning or shopping (1 hour) since 7:45am…I can’t wait until I am strong enough for that not to wipe me out.
I have been doing 45/15s all day.
So far I have:
Scrubbed the tub
Scrubbed the toilet (and fixed the chain in the tank)
Scrubbed the bathroom sink and cleaned the vanity
Washed the bathroom floor rugs (they take forever to dry on fluff, cold, setting)
Swept the bathroom and kitchen
Worked on my spaghetti sauce
Slow cooked chicken with onions and peppers
Went to the store twice
Walked .32 miles to my moms (there was a time I couldn’t do that)
Did 3 loads of laundry
hauled a huge load of clothes that we put away
Cleaned the counters
Cleaned the stove top, toaster oven and microwave.
Scrubbed the old unfinished wooden table (wow they get dirty)
Cleaned the sideboard and top of the washer and dryer.
Emptied and reloaded/ran the dishwasher
Help make the big bed
Moved lawn chairs that had gotten blown all over the yard
Moved bamboo mats to get the weeds that were trying to grow through them out.
Moved a bench
Finally ate a chicken sausage (tummy hates me so won’t handle food right now)
Ok, going to block my apps for an hour and rest
Then to make 50+ pudding shots,
Turn the sauce into baked spaghetti and the chicken and veg into crockpot fried rice
Make a big sangria punch
Set up for the party
Have a friend come over in 1 hour to shower and do laundry due to bad plumbing at his place
I can do it
