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!

Yesterday I bought myself one of those tiny little one egg non stick pans. I love to make breakfast sandwiches but disliked having big, spread out or lumpy scrambled egg on my sandwich. This allows me to have a perfectly sized helping of eggs(or in my case, egg beaters) to fit on my little, round, sandwich thins.
I use Orowheat 100 % whole wheat sandwich thins, eggbeaters southwestern style, 1 teaspoon of mayo, a dollop of Dijon mustard, a morningstar prime griller veggie burger (I don't care for their veggie sausages) and fat free sharp cheese. Sometimes I will use real sausage for a treat. I am going to try Canadian bacon this week as well. Yum! *sighs contentedly*
Okay, logging off now...lots to do...

"Our destiny changes with our thoughts; we shall become what we wish to become, do what we wish to do, when our habitual thoughts correspond with our desires." - Orison Swett Marden
I'm working really hard at changing my thought patterns! While I can be very positive and almost disgustingly upbeat (ask my non morning friends! *LOL*), I can be equally negative and oh so down! It drives me crazy! One of my first goals this year is to work on controlling, if not ejecting, the negativity from my thoughts. It won't be easy, but I KNOW I can do it!
I started my new year today and at the moment am very excited about it. I need to make some serious changes in my life (Lifestyle?) to get where I WANT to be.
Goals this far:
Turn off the TV! No more having it on for noise or company. Unless there is some thing I really wish to watch, it is not going to be on. (This will be REALLY difficult for me, but I KNOW I can do it.)
"There is no failure except in no longer trying."
Everyday I will do some form of cardio for at least 15 minutes. Be it walking on the treadmill, dancing, walking in place when I do have the tv on, doing one of my DVDs. There is no excuse not to move during my day!
I am going to try yoga. I have a DVD of yoga for big girls(Along with the book) and I am going to see if I like it. I am going to give it a fair chance and not quit because I can't do something the first, second or third time I attempt it...
I will be much more conscious of what food I bring into the house. I will consciously choose healthy food and will jut as consciously decide to have a small treat every now and then. I will avoid bringing into my home, my known trigger foods.
I will track my food honestly every day.
This is a good start and I am truly excited. I just the little while it has taken me to type this down, I feel optimistic and a sense of joy for doing something good and positive.
So now, off to have a bite of breakfast and attack my room. I have a whole other set of goals that are not health related, however I know I will most certainly reap the benefits of feeling mentally and physically accomplished and contented that I did what I set out to do! Everything is connected, isn't it.
"The secret of success is constancy of purpose."
Have a magical day!
