“any german”

12 Mar

In college, I was the stop on a scavenger hunt.  The participants had to “find Amy German and take a picture with her”.  There was a typo so it read, “find Any German and take a picture with her”.  The contestants went around asking random people if they were German and took a picture.  We had a whole group of students pictured with people with German heritage!  Hahahaha – I still laugh at this!  I told it to my dad the other day and he cracked up!  One little typo and my name has a whole new meaning.  I love it!

I know, random.  I was thinking about it on my drive to an important meeting (the story and the above quote) and it helped me relax.  In fact, it’s a story I often remind myself of because when life gets complicated, it’s so simple.  Not to mention, I love my name so any kind of quirk with it makes me happy.

Last post,  I swore I was going to work on getting healthy.  I’ve been sick for a month and a half now, and I’m thinking the laws of physics say after this amount of time, good health is bestowed.  Fingers crossed I’m almost there!  This cough loves to linger and I’m not sure how to shake it.  I adore my sweet baby niece.  My little cutie gets sickly though from being around other kiddos and both times I babysat her this last month and a half, I got a sneeze in the face.  Yesterday I watched her again and yep, another full sneeze in the face!

How can I be crankypants with this little one though?  Fingers crossed she isn’t incubating any germs at the moment and I can relish in some sweet, sweet good health!  I also claimed I would get more sleep – eh, this is iffy.  I’m a fairly restless sleeper anyway and stress doesn’t help.  Not to mention, I restarted Criminal Minds from the beginning.  Let’s just say happy dreams this does not make!  I’m a silly goose.

I also said I would get outside.  Get this – it FREAKIN’ SNOWED here last Sunday!  What the hay?!  It is so out of the norm for the Pacific Northwest and it hasn’t snowed in Michigan for a few weeks.  I think I’m a snow magnet.  I find this humorous.  Although, it did keep customers away from my LuLaRoe open house, which was unfortunate!  I am airing out my house – cold weather be damned.  I’m inviting as much fresh air as possible, in hopes of getting rid of any germs.  I’ve decided going for a walk should make some of this tightness in my chest go away.  Tomorrow I’m going to put this hypothesis to a test and maybe if I believe it hard enough, it will come to fruition.

I recognize this post is essentially a brain dump – it happens.  The other day I asked my LuLaRoe group members to post some of their favorite memes.  These are a few of the goodies.  Last but certainly not least, because I can’t tell you how many times I took an out of the way road for this very reason:
