    IZ was a fantastic musician. My husband and I got married in Hawaii, and that song was always playing (and rainbows were everywhere). We joke that it was our wedding song because we heard it all the time!

    Sorry no didn't mean to confuse. I'm American. I didn't even think of that when I posted. I read somewhere that it was going to be named just Liverpool, Ohio, but there was a West Liverpool who put up a stink so they had to settle on East Liverpool, then West Liverpool went under. Don't know how true that is, but it would hve been neat to just be Liverpool, Ohio instead of East L.O.

The background to my SP page is our town back in whatever year, don't think it was marked.

Biting my nails

Monday, August 05, 2013

For a challenge on one of my teams I have to work on something and this is my vice...would you call it a vice?? Dr. Pepper is a vice, smoking is a vice, but is nail biting?

I hate to admit such a terrible habit, but I have learned that other adults also bite their nails...I'm not alone!!

I had an injury to my left hand and couldn't turn my hand over to bite the nails. Who else can say their injury was for the good. For whatever reason, I also let my nails on my right hand grow too. That was last year. I have managed to let my FINGER nails grow, not so the thumb nails. As long as I bite the thumb nails I know I haven't beat the habit.

They say it is some underlying reason, lbut maybe so when I was a kid, but I think after all this time it has just become a habit. It isn't because I'm watching a scary movie (which I'm trying not to watch any more) or worry, I just bite without realizing it. Then when I do notice wht I am doing, I go ahead and finish the job, have to get that sharp piece of nail off.

I need to work on this. I could have used getting over my fear of spiders for this challenge, but I'm not ready to go there.

    You are just too funny! One of my colleagues at work bites her nails, they're literally about 1/4 of an inch long so it's pretty bad with her - but you know what, I've never actually seen her do it!

Good luck with stomping the vice!

    Yes, as a matter of fact I did get over biting my thumb nails. To tell the truth, I prayed about it. I know the Holy Spirit can help in all areas so took a chance. I have had thumb nails for a few weeks. They do chip so I file them down so now they almost come to a point, but a rounded point emoticon ....well I try to shape the point lets say, but at least I have nails. Yay!!!

    My MIL gave me fake nails for Christmas one year and I let mine grow out enough to put them on. You can only leave them on so long and then take them off. I had nice nails!......for a while. That was a long time ago. At least it is only the thumb nails I bite now. Was afraid that I'd start biting the one that broke off, but so far so good. Knock on wood.....what? no emoticon for that?

    I always had the worst time stoping biting my nails. I am 31 and a half, and I just recently cut the habit out. I went to a class at the end of June called "Change Anything". There's also a book out. It talks about how there are outside influences that stop you from making changes. Once you recognize these "critical moments", then you can work to overcome them. I have had nails for over 8 weeks now. I still chew on the strong tips but no more biting the nail completely. Also, I have found a good motivator for keeping nails. Manicures. It's so much cheaper to get a mani/pedi than a full set and a pedi! I save about 20 dollars. Good luck!

    LOL - you are too funny! Love how to turned that lemon of an injury into lemonade - good for you. Good luck licking the nail-biting habit, and you're right, you could have SO many worse vices.

    Habits are hard to change (or get into). I think there are products out there that you can put on your nails that taste terrible. So then, in theory, you \quit biting your nails. I wish you luck.

    Did you ever see the TV show, Monk? He had a very long list of fears and in one episode, Natalie and her daughter were trying to help him with just one fear but he couldn't do it. Later in the show he could when he became a 9-year old again, an accident of hypnosis. Like you, as a child, I learned some irrational fears that, with years of practice, are now part of my life. Slowly I am using the same method I am using to loose weight here and I am okay with that. emoticon

I wish you the best with your challenge. You are working hard here and can apply the same tactics to any other goals you have. emoticon

The Storm is Over Now by R. kelly

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

www.youtube.com/watch?v=FwK3xkFvakc

Lyrics:
I was in a tunnel
And couldn't see the light
And whenever I'd look up
I couldn't see the sky
Sometimes when I'm standin'
It seems like I done walked for miles
And my heart could be cryin'
Dead in the middle of a smile

But then I climbed the hills
And saw the mountains
I hollered help 'cause I was lost
Then I felt the strong wind
Heard a small voice sayin'

The storm is over
(The storm is over now)
And I can see the sunshine
(Somewhere beyond the clouds)
I feel Heaven, yeah
(Heaven is over me)
Come on and set me free, whoa

Now in the midst of my battle
All hope was gone
Downtown in a rushed crowd
And felt all alone
And every now and then
I felt like I would lose my mind
I've been racin' for years
And still no finish line, oh

But then I climbed the hills
And saw the mountains (Mountains)
I hollered help 'cause I was lost
Then I felt the strong wind
And then a small voice sayin'

The storm is over
(The storm is over now)
And I can see the sunshine
(Somewhere beyond the clouds)
I can feel Heaven, yeah
(Heaven is over me)

Come on and set me free

Somehow my beginning stepped right in (Right in)
Then faith became my friend (My friend)
And now I can depend
On the voices of the wind
When it's sayin' (Sayin')

The storm is over
(The storm is over now)
And I can see the sunshine
(Somewhere beyond the clouds)
I can feel Heaven, yeah
(Heaven is over me)

Won't you come and set me free
Won't you set me free

The storm is over
(The storm is over now)
And I can see the sunshine
(Somewhere beyond the clouds)
I can feel Heaven, yeah
(Heaven is over me)
Won't you come and set me free

[Ad lib until fade]
