Got Some Stress???

Well, last night, I came home and just HAD to have some good old blackeyed peas with cornbread.  Whipped up the batter, cooked up the blackeyes and Went for it!LOL....Good!  
.....Blogging interruption!!  Had to run over to Crystal's house and Save the children from a....Snake!Hahahahaaa....geez, it was a tiny garden snake, but Sami was terrified!!  In the door I walk and there on the floor was the culprit.  I'd say, about 6 inches long......It was more scared than the kiddos!  I just threw a kitchen towel over it, scooped it up and carried it outside.  No, I didn't get any pictures...too much Chaos!!  And Stress!! Hahahahaaa.......sorry.

Now, here's a little test we All need to  take!! Hahahahaaaa.....My stress level was only 37%! I mean, Really! What can you do about life except just Roll with the punches?.....Nothing...and I mean Nothing, is worth wrecking your mental, emotional  or physical health over.  Well that's about it for my day....Hope Your stress level isn't too high!!  Happy night or day everyone!!

Your Stress Level is: 37%

You are slightly prone to stress, but generally you keep it under control.

You know how to relax and take things as they come, even when your worlds seems to be falling apart.

Occasionally, you do let yourself get stressed out, but you snap out of it pretty quickly.

We caught a snake in ryan's minnow basket last week, and all my kids wanted to do was pet it! Hubby held it, once we made sure it wasn't poisonous, and we all touched it. Now, I might have felt a little differently if it was IN MY HOUSE! lol! Mammy to the rescue!

A green snake or garter snake I can handle, as long as they don't lick me, if that happens it's all over. All other snakes are to be avoided, always!

I had pintos and cornbread maybe you were sending me bean/pea vibes today.(grin)

My stress level was 71%, not too good I reckon.

Phyllis said...

My stress level is: 72%

You are prone to stress, and you're probably even pretty stressed right now.
Life's problems seem to pile up on you, and this often makes you feel depressed and burned out.
Learn to take time to relax and enjoy life, even if things are stressful. It's the only wa you'll get through the bad times.

Mary Lou said...

LOLOL I got 72% also...must run in the family!! You can keep the black eyed peas, but I LOVE beans and cornbread. Phyllis and I grew up on Navy beans, pinto beans and butter beans and cornbread. UMMMMUM
