It's All about Choices...

What will you choose?
You can choose to be angry
You can choose to bask in God's presence.

You can't do both.

Monday, Monday...

Some days are just destined to be less than stellar.
This is one of those days...
Those who know better... and yet...
It's frustrating.
The same old song and dance.
The same old routine.
The same old frustration.
Step right up ladies and gents,
for our personal version of
Ground Hog Day...
Cue Bill Murray...
over and over and over and over and over.....

At some point, wouldn't it make more sense to get off the ride if it makes you miserable?

Back in the saddle...

Today I'm getting back to being completely on program in Weight Watchers which includes getting exercise everyday. I've been a complete slob in that department lately. I'm not back to doing an hour plus, but I did get a good half hour walk in with with Miss Buddie the Wonder Dog. Baby steps right?

This weekend is the Race for the Cure and I don't want to be completely worn out after the race or sore for three days. LOL Plus, I want to get back to my losing ways. I've held steady for like a month, which is good because I'm not gaining, but I'm not to the maintenance stage yet. I've still got weight to lose.

Stay tuned....

It's just one of those days when there's too much stuff and not enough me. One of those days when I want to run away from home because I'm sick to death of people needing something from me.

It's official... I'm whining. :D

Just a day when allergies and too-full a plate is getting to me.

Nite, Blogosphere. Momma's headed to bed.

Sometimes what you expected is not what you get.
Sometimes what you get is exactly what you expected, but not what you wanted.
Sometimes what you need is elusive.
Sometimes what you need is impossible.
Sometimes ... it's just hard.
It's always worth it, but not always easy.

It's been a crazy week. I'm ready for a restful weekend. Hopefully, I'll get one. :P

Tomorrow Bill and I are going to be donating platelets so that's a couple of hours of complete veg-out down time.

We're also planning on going to see Where the Wild Things Are. Loved that book. Gotta see the movie.

Just need some down time to relax and chill. It's been very emotional and exhausting lately. I'm ready for some good ole normal.

Sorry it's been so long...

Life's just been completely wacky at my house and I just haven't had the time or inclination to write.

Baby Girl fell victim to H1N1 the day after her 10th birthday. :( Everything turned out just fine thanks to her fantabulous doc and Tamiflu, but it was a rough few days.

It just seems like it's been one thing after another lately. Very overwhelming and exhausting; however, things are slowly but surely working themselves out... as they always do in the end. Stuff never lasts forever... it just feels like forever while you're in the middle of it.

On the weightloss front, I'm down a total of 65 pounds, but I'm at a plateau both physically and mentally. Seems like I get to this point and flake every time. I'm working at pushing past the mental issues and finally make it to the Promised Land. LOL

It's late and I'm headed to bed. Nite, Blogosphere. See ya later... and I promise to try and not make it so long until next time.

10th Birthday!

Today is my baby girl's 10th birthday. It's a bittersweet thing. I'm completely thrilled that she's happy, healthy and completely normal, but it's also sad that it's going by so quickly.

Doesn't seem that long ago that I was in Baptist Hospital holding my sweet girl in my arms. Now she's very grown and very independent.

I'm very proud of the person she's becoming. She's smart, funny and knows her own mind. She's quickly turning into a person I would so be friends with. For that, I'm incredibly grateful.

Happy Birthday, Doodlebug. Your mom loves you so much!

Hard to deal sometimes...

It's been a wacky week. Learned some things about a situation that I would have preferred to not know... that's the funny thing about knowledge. You can't unknow. You can't go back there. That's the hard part. It was my fantasy... and I liked it. Knowledge is power. It can have a powerful effect for good or for bad.

A New Beginning.

It's been a wacky couple of weeks. Definitely got off track, both in terms of my eating, exercise and spiritual stuff. I've let circumstances dictate me instead of the other way around. I think i was just in severe survival mode. Just getting through it instead of managing my own life.

Today, I got back on track with eating. Back to tracking my points. Went to weigh in. Surprisingly no gain. The fact that I maintained is pretty incredible.

Tomorrow, I'll hit the gym again, and I'll get back to regular devotions.

Gotta do what's right for me in order to take care of everyone else.

Busy bees!

Busy day today. Cleaned the house. Shopped for food for a baby shower. Prepared for my Sunday School class.

Feeling a little better after the migraine hell of yesterday, but still a little groggy. It's been a bad few days for allergies, and I think that probably had something to do with it.

I'm really excited about Becca's shower tomorrow. I really want everything to go well. I want her to have a wonderful day.

Migraines suck out loud!

I stayed home today from work with the migraine from the 10th level of hell. Sucks out loud. It's 7:45 right now, and I'm still not right. I'm so tired I could go to bed right now and I've slept all day. BLECH!

The one upside of the day is that I finally caught myself up on TrueBlood. HBO On Demand is a beautiful thing. Day time TV is so awful. Househusbands of Hollywood? Are you kidding me? Seriously? Gotta be a sign of the apocalypse! LOL

Headed to a hot bath and some more drugs. Hoping for a better weekend.

Sometimes there are just those days where everything is just destined to get on your nerves. The fact that people insist on breathing in and out in your presence is annoying. That is the day I'm having. The kind of day where you just want to chill out on a desert island with the nice cabana boy bringing you pink drinks with umbrellas to match.

I'd like to take a vacation. A long vacation. A vacation at a spa... an all you can facial spa.

Sup Y'all?

Just thought it might be time to finally join the 21st century and start a blog. I've attempted this a couple of times, but it always seems to fizzle out. Actually, my access from work fizzles out and I wimp out. Now that I have a cool beans phone with internet access and mahverahown laptop, I can be a little more diligent about keeping this thing updated.

So what will this be about? Who knows? A little of this and a little of that. Observations. Annoyances. Probably a lot of random stuff that pops into my twisted brain. I'm in the middle of a weight loss journey with Weight Watchers, so there will probably be some stuff about that too. Hard to tell. :D

Welcome to the mental mess known as my mind. LOL
