Here I am on my break, sitting in my car and listening to the rain. This is been a week of deep introspection, and lessons learned. I believe this is helping as I try to get back to my normal, cheerful, and sassy self. Finally gaining the courage to step on the scale, I find that I am at my beginning weight. Somehow, and I haven't figured out why yet, this does not upset me. This is my jumping off point. I'm starting fresh!. Rats its time for me to go back to work already. I guess that this will be a multipart blog.

To awaken each morning with a smile brightening my face; to greet the day with reverence for the opportunities it contains; to approach my work with a clean mind; to hold ever before me, even in the doing of little things, the Ultimate Purpose toward which I am working; to meet men and women with laughter on my lips and love in my heart; to be gentle, kind, and courteous through all the hours; to approach the night with weariness that ever woos sleep and the joy that comes from work well done—this is how I desire to waste wisely my days.
I really am in an odd place. I know what I need to do, I know I NEED to do it for a healthier and happier me, but I'm stuck. Sometimes I feel as if I have been fighting this for so long and I'm just not making any progress. I know it is my choice and it is my life I am playing with here. I hate how up and down I feel and how many times I am catching myself saying "I don't care anymore." Because I DO care! Deep down inside where I hide from myself, I care so very much. I need to find a way back to supporting myself. Feeling kind of lost right now.
I realize the quote I found today has nothing to do with my ramblings, but it struck a chord with me.

Okay, kitchen is done except for the sweeping and mopping. I'm afraid I got distracted a couple of times(Gee, WHAT a surprise!!)
It all started when one of my favorite songs from my teenage years played on my Ipod. Ohhhh, I am dating myself here, but I don't care. It was the Bellamy Brothers "Let Your Love Flow." That led me to seeing if I could find a video of it (Gotta Love You Tube!) I did fond it, but that video led me to several more of my fav oldies. Tommy James and the Shondells, Tommy Roe, Peter and Gordon, Gary Puckett and the Union Gap, Edison Lighthouse, BJ Thomas, and so many more. Jeeze, talk about a trip through time! 'm gonna look for these on ITunes and add them to my dancing lists. I was be bopping on my chair as I was rediscovering the joy of 60's and 70's music!
For my Doctor Who friends, I found a brilliant video called :The Tenth Doctor-a Musical!" It was AWESOME!
Now I am going to sign off again, with Tommy James singing "I Think We're Alone Now!"

Greetings from below freezing Las Vegas! it is 19 degrees, sunny and beautiful! Today is switch off Sunday, no TV and as little computer time as I can stand! *LOL* (Not that I'm addicted or anything! *Giggles*)
Getting ready to finish my kitchen and work some more on my room. I was going to work on it after work, but it was a really rough week with physician's offices back from the holidays and playing catch up with everyth9ing they didn't do over the last several weeks. I am also finding that in the new position at work, I sit WAAAAAAAAAAY longer that I am used to and by the end of the day, I am exhausted! I went from a job where I was running around several times a day, to one where I was up occasionally, to this one where I sit in the same position for 2-3 hours at a time. I cannot believe the difference!
So I have taken to getting up once at least every hour to hour and a half and stretching at my desk! I really don't know how people can stand sitting in those office chairs for so long without moving! *LOL* I have noticed that I feel better at the end of the day and have a wee bit more energy if I do this very regularly!
So once I am done here, I am off to work on my sanctuary. I keep envisioning how it is going to look and how I a going to love coming home and having time and the inclination to do work on projects, study , meditate and just be in y calm and de-cluttered home.
Brightest blessings for a beautiful day!
