This is a post that I’m writing for “The Gypsy Mama’s” 5-minute Friday.  Her blog is    It is completely awesome, and you should visit.
The assignment is for everyone to write for 5 minutes on anything.  Just write what you feel with no regard for perfection.  
I think I’ll try it.....  Today it’s about Relevance.  Not too funny - but only  had 5 minutes.
Right off the top of my head I can think of 4 categories of relevance in my life.  They are as follows:
Things that are Relevant to me and a part of my life: (not in any particular order)
My kids and their activities
Iced tea (I’m Southern)
Hair color
OMG!  I forgot - my iphone and the alarm I need to remind me to do everyday activities
Things that are Relevant to me which I WISH were not part of my life:
Grocery store and cooking!!!!
Listening to “Mom, you are SO weird!”
My birthday
My Iphone and the alarm
Things that are Relevant to me which are NOT part of my daily life and I wish they were:
Understanding the stock market
Chocolate and bananas foster
Actually getting responses when I talk to my kids- Don’t get me started.
Watching a rated-R movie
Time with friends on the beach - I'll even take the beach at the Redneck
       Riviera. - Florida panhandle, baby.
A hobby
Things that are NOT Relevant to me at all and I do not even know what they are and don’t want to:
The air ride suspension kit on my rear axle that causes the compressor to run too long - (What the heck?)
Declining a penalty in football
Anything to do with NASCAR
The vacuum cleaner
