Chili Picante Corn Nuts con Limon

I made a conscious decision a few days ago to focus on my own reaction to the world around me. No one makes me frustrated or upset or stressed. That is MY reaction to what is going on. (Thanks Caroline for getting me thinking . . . )

So, I tried really hard today to "act" instead of "react." I was doing great all day long until it got to be about 8:30 p.m. I was sitting here at the computer with my two sweet boys not far away. The other item not far away was a big bag of corn nuts. Anyone had a corn nut lately?

As I was sitting here, typing away, both boys were within a few feet and were eating corn nuts at lightning speed. The noise could have awakened the dead. I slowly felt my irritation level rise from my stomach, up to my chest and on up to my neck. I tried so hard to swallow it down and failed miserably. Thankfully the boys just laughed at my frustration and started chomping even louder. I'm back in control, hopefully tomorrow will be better.

It's going to be a long time before I buy another bag of corn nuts.
