Rainy Days and Fridays Make me Happy! (Warning, this blog makes no sense, but I like it!)

Friday, December 14, 2012

Wow, I'm at a loss for words this morning. Nothing coherent anyway. I think I feel a ramble coming on...

I'm enjoying our weather tremendously, wore my coat and one of my scarves for the first time yesterday. About freaking time it acts like winter! *GRINS* I want today to fly by and at 5:00 it can slow way down until Monday! I hate the Cox commercial that plays off of Extreme Home Makeover. It is amazing to me what songs I will have in my head when I wake up in the morning...I mean really...The Smurfs theme? What the heck? I hate watching the news, it is so depressing. I wish they would spend at least as much time on good and inspiring stories as they do an everything else. I miss my mama and grandparents. I love my hot chocolate on cold mornings, it's like a warm hug from the inside. Received my first two Christmas cards yesterday, I was thrilled! I love it when my cat sleeps on her back...she's so fluffy. Kinda wish I could stay home today and enjoy the weather all snuggled down. I'm all caught up at work and my bosses are very happy with me! I love being here on SP and look forward everyday to seeing what is going on in our little corner of the 'verse.( which is FireFly slang for "Universe".) *


Well, that's about the extent of my blog for today! *LOL* Told you it was a ramble. That is pretty much what I have to try to tame when I am meditating! In any event, Happy Friday...Have a marvy day! Remember you are loved and we can do it!

TTFN,
Ame

    I have a cat who likes to sleep on his back also, and one of the kittens we've recently adopted is starting to do it too. I hope the weekend slows down for you too, and I totally agree about the news showing some nice stuff.

    I need to post a ramble later today!

I get the craziest songs stuck in my head too. On a Facebook word game I play, there's a user I'm playing with named Delilah... and every time I play, I get Tom Jones's "Delilah" stuck in my head! :D

Another beautiful morning

Thursday, December 13, 2012

I am watching the most amazing sunrise! Pink clouds in a baby blue sky. I am and always will be a morning person. A night owl, I am most definitely not!

My review went very well! I left feeling pumped up and totally appreciated. I got nicked for having 1 more absence in a year than allowed, but that was all. I will do better next year because I am taking such better care of myself! I have only been in that department since August, but my supervisor and department manager are pleased with what I am accomplishing and very pleased that I take on all the tasks asked of me with a smile. They asked me to keep an eye on my little area to see if there is a better way to structure the work flow. They asked me to take the initiative when I thought something needed to be done or if I need to work some OT. I am well pleased with this years review!

On a different note, I have figured out a way to be able to have nuts in my house without overeating or finishing the who lot of them!(Can you say trigger food!) I just buy mixed nuts in bulk, in their shells and that makes me have to work for them. Sometimes it is just too much work to get to the nutty goodness, so I stop after just a small amount. Hey, whatever works!

I took a morning off from dancing, I have been exhausted these last couple of days, despite the fact I a usually asleep by 9 or 9:30 every night. Body could still be getting used to getting up so early and the fact I kind of just jumped in to a half hour of dancing without working up to it. Who knows? I will take my 15 minute walk this afternoon, so I can keep my goal of at least 10 minutes of exercise a day.

Let's make this a FAB day! We can do it! Remember ...you are loved!

    I love sunrises! Unfortunately, I don't get up early enough to see them usually... but when I vacation at the beach, I tend to wake up early. The way the ocean looks at sunrise is one of the most beautiful sights ever.

    Glad to see you're happy with your review! :) OMG, I have the same nut problem. I bought pistachios with their shells, and it's definitely keeping me from munching too much. XD

Chilly and Sleepy...Yet so Enthused!

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Good morning! Well, December is finally acting like winter at a nippy 40 degrees out at the moment. Love it! Went to bed early last night and was up at 4:30 again with 37 minutes of dancing! No snooze button hitting for me since I started! Yay me! *LOL I slept well last night, but am very sleepy this morning. It may be the cold.

Today is my annual review, and for the first time in years I'm not freaking out over it. I always dreaded it with my last boss. Last year, it almost ruined my new year. She can be so negative, despite the fact I worked my tush off just to get a nod. It all comes down to two polar opposite personalities.

My new boss is much quieter and more relaxed than my last one. She has acknowledged my work any number of times and makes me feel as if I am part of the team. HUGE difference. I look forward to going to work and people notice how much more outgoing I am, how happy and cheerful I am. Thank the Universe for arranging things to make me happier and much more productive!

Well, breakfast time and then need to get dressed and head out the door. It is a great day!

Make healthy choices today, and if you get a chance, listen to Lily and Karen over on Spark Radio. They will help keep you on the right track!

Have a splendiferous day!

    emoticon emoticon on getting up early and dancing!!! I just can't get myself up early. We are getting more real winter weather here too, down to high 30's last couple of days for the high temp - now we just need the snow/rain to go with it :-)

Get on on your feet! It's Marvy Monday!

Monday, December 10, 2012

37 minuted of dancing this morning, even after less than 4 hours of sleep! (That's what I get for taking a nap yesterday!) I feel so good! I have also set up menu for the day and am just shy of the middle of my calorie range. emoticon

I had a great meditation session today! The most focused I've almost ever had! Part of it was visualizing myself two year from this last weekend, at my company holiday party, going up to receive my 25 year service recognition. I am my perfect weight and I'm wearing a beautiful Christmas red dress with my hair all long and shiny. Friends I haven't seen in more than a year are stunned at how good I look. I am graceful, charming, and have never looked so good. So now I know I have a long term goal and can focus on now to make it by then.

Spark coach spoke of finding a song that inspires you. Not one you'll necessarily dance or exercise too, although in my case. it is one and the same! My go to song for getting me revved up is Gloria Estevan's "Get on Your Feet!" It pumps me up and keeps me heading in the right direction. And yes, it is great to shake my booty to as well! emoticon

I'm looking forward to what this lovely day has in store. I am so excited!

Brightest Blessings for a magical day!

Executive decision

Sunday, December 09, 2012

I decided that today is a rest day. It is a jammies and hot chocolate day. It is a delicious nap taking, Christmas movie watching, couple of loads of laundry, Sunday.

That is all.
