Try not to poop on yourself today and have a cupcake

Life is what you make it.  I believe this.  I know very negative people who live the most miserable lives and I know people with very little who could not be happier.  It's all in your perspective.  I really try to choose joy always.

I'd rather stay home.

I'm addicted to sugar.
Ok, this never happens either.
That's NOT gray hair.

Ahhhh, the Frio River.

So basically, if I wake up, it's raining, I eat a cupcake for breakfast, paint something, God is calling me an idiot and 
I have not shat myself it's the
