If you think badly, you’ll feel badly. If you think positive and uplifting thoughts, those thoughts will make you feel better. It’s really basic simple math. I truly believe that. It’s all about your mindset and attitude.

Think before you speak
Some people are just plain stupid. That is exactly what I look at it like. I feel pity for people who have no morals or couth. That only makes them that less of a decent, caring, loving, person. I’ve come to the decision that I am not going to let people like that poison my thoughts or life. Oh and other word for people like that are just rude.
The question I already know the answer to is, why do people like to inflict hurt and pain on others? Why would someone like to see someone else suffer to make themselves look better? I just don’t get it? I would never ever try to take something or say something to someone else to better my self at any degree.
If you see someone else in need or in a worse off position than yourself, wouldn’t you try to help that person out? Not even in a monetary way, just in an emotional or supportive way?
Some people fail to realize that it’s not all about them and what is going to make them feel good and satisfied. Do those type of people ever figure out that their inner misery stems from the fact that cause other people pain? Really, that’s it in a nut shell.
I get emotionally hurt, feel pain, and have anger because of the way people are vicious and cause me pain as well as others. I can’t let that happen anymore. Seriously, it has to stop or it’s going to end up killing me. I take everything to heart and in the end, it means absolutely nothing. I have to remember to shield myself from people like such. My whole life I have dealt with shit. Shit from my parents, shit from a certain sibling, shit from people who I really thought gave a lol “shit” about me. It has to stop.
I know I have made mistakes in the past but from those mistakes I truly learned my lesson. I’m not saying I can call myself Mother Theresa because from time to time I can do stupid stuff but overall I get what it is all about. I just wish others would also but ya know it isn’t my problem or emotional ball and chain anymore. I am going to eliminate those people from my thought and pain process. I may not be able to remove them from my life but I have the ability to control the pain they can cause me. I’m done.
Homemade quick and easy lasagna
Okay here it goes my recipe for quick and easy homemade lasagna. I am no chef but I must say my cooking isn’t all that bad. I have a very busy schedule and really don’t have the time to go all out on making big dinners so I like to whip up good belly sticking homemade full your tummy meals. On the menu tonight was lasagna.
Just keep in mind, I always season to taste. I actually think that is my whole motto in life. I season to taste just about everything I do!
Homemade Quick and Easy Lasagna
1 lb. Ground Beef
1 lb. Sweet Sausage
12 pkg. of fresh chopped mushrooms
1 onion chopped yellow onion
16 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
16 oz Whole milk ricotta cheese
1/2 cup of parmesan cheese
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1/2 tsp pepper
9 cooked lasagna noodles(perfect fit for an 8×12 pan)
Brown ground beef and sausage and drain
Saute mushrooms and onion(I usually melt 1 tbsp of butter in the bottom of the pan)
Mix all cheeses, eggs, and spices – set aside
The sauce is something you can actually make ahead of time or if you are in a real rush buy a jar of Ragu traditional and 3 – 32 oz cans of crushed tomatoes, add all together and let cook about 1 hour and half before time. I like to brown some garlic on the bottom before adding the jar and cans of sauce. What really gives it a good flavor is about 3/4 of a cup of parmesan cheese. Kid you not it adds a lot of flavor.
Layer the bottom of your pan with 3 lasagna noodles.
Spread cheese mixture on top. We like it cheesy so I usually add extra shredded mozzarella on top of the cheese mixture as well.
Spread browned meat/mushroom, onion mix next.
Dribble sauce on top of that.
Sprinkle parmesan cheese and garlic powder.
Repeat starting with the layered noodles.
When you put your last(3rd row of noodles down, only finish it with sauce and mozzarella cheese).
Don’t use too much sauce throughout because it will get watery!!
Remember season to taste! Don’t be afraid to use extra spices! A little extra flavor never killed anyone. I use hardly any salt because
it’s bad for your blood pressure!!
Wow been so busy lately my head is spinning and I have the worse headache. I feel the need to blog. I went to 708(my house that caught on fire Christmas Eve) and got a little done. Tarp on the roof, a couple of windows boarded up, why I swept the kitchen I have no idea. I did manage to pull out a couple of sacred items of the boys underneath the charred rubbish “up-up.” Actually I can’t even believe they didn’t melt. The boys NY Giants costume helmets they wear when pretending to be playing a football game “up-up.” That’s what we called their play area up in the attic. They were black from the smoke and smelled horendous but I brought them home anyway. I don’t think it is possible for me to describe the looks on their face when I told them what I had. Priceless. Jaw dropping, priceless. Made my heart leap for joy for them. We scrubbed and scubbed then voila! Almost back to that sparkley blue that they once were. They were so happy that it almost made me cry. My kids are so amazing and I hate to brag but with everything we have gone through together they have grown into the most respectful, honest, caring, and loving kids I have ever met. They truly make my heart melt. I guess I’m doing something right and hopefully it will carry through.
