Trying to Please. . . .

Saturday, May 29, 2010



So got a wedding that I got to go to & I really don't wanna. Its on a Sunday evening. I know, I know, I don't have to work on Monday but I'd rather be home doing something with the kids. I know I need to be a date to my husband but why did he have to sign on for the reception too? YIKES! Who do you try to please?

Today, I'm dropping a bday card off to my girlfriend & maybe try to get her out to dinner. She's more home bound than I am. lol Then I'm off to get my nails done. I will do walking, weights & try to do some cardio.

God bless & HELP!!

Dee

    I had to go to a neighbors yesterday b/c her Grandchildren came from out of town , they come every year and we get the call to drop everything and "come see the kids" I also did not feel like going bc we had things going on here but went. PS the booze helped! have fun at the wedding and try to get your hubby out early and then just do what Dee wants to do. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I hear ya! I had to drive to Milwaukee today for a 60th anniversary party and really didn't feel like going. So glad I went now! Had a great time. Also got to see an elderly cousin who is in assisted living.

    I was reminded today that you can never please everyone all of the time so you must ensure you don't 'cheat' your own self in the process - BALANCE is always key.

Be sure to set and keep good boundaries (as you seem to)...

    It sounds like you do love to help other people and I think that is wonderful, but don't forget you need to spend time helping yourself! Don't be affraid to politely say no if you don't want to do something! It is hard the first time you do it, but after that you will feel better inside! I am not saying don't help people, but you can't try to fit so much into one day that you are spending most all of your time feeling stressed because there isn't any time left!
Do something fun to reward yourself today! Most of all be good to yourself when nobody else will! Have a great Memorial weekend and stay focused! emoticon

Now when I was growing up on my bday I didn't have huge fusses made over me but you do want that some times for you loved ones right? Well he didn't know what he wanted to at all. He wanted to go to IHOP, then TGIFridays & the Portillo's (which is a grill hamburger type place) so we ended up at Golden Corral. This a all you can eat type buffet but a HUGE bump up from Old Country. I tried a little of everything & I won't even log cause it was in deed way too much food.

I woke up early, prayed & was in the word with Joyce Meyer & the Berean online. I did Gilad Total Body Sculpt, Shiva Rea Yoga, Leslie 3Mile Walk & I NEED 30-45mins of Kick Punch & Crunch to help me sustain & not gain. LOL

You guys I am dancing in my chair cause its Hump Wednesday! So we can dance like nobody's watching or act like we don't care that they're watching!!

God bless & enjoy Wednesday!

Dee

    I know that place and thank God it was not my favorite, otherwise I would have 200 pounds to lose. LOL I went when I lived in Plano and I was the payer of about 5 or 6...I forgot but over 60 bucks but I didn't eat a lot I remember and was glad to go home. That place has so much to offer someone who can't make their mind up.

We had a all you can eat place I think Ryan's Steak House; yes that was it and it was quite good...except the food got cold too fast and I didn't like that at all. I also preferred CiCi's Pizza...the spinach pizza was my fav and the cinnamon sticks. Those were the days...and I don't miss them when I can cook for myself a better meal for the calories. Praise the Lord for growing.
Thanks for sharing!

    They recently opened up one of those GC walking distances from me (probably best to walk there). I looked for the Applewood grill but you're right, the steak is for dinner. Lots of choices and we should stick to moderation when going there. Glad you took the time to spend with your son for his B-day! I bet you had a wonderful time!

Feet Are Propped On . . .

Sunday, May 23, 2010

Got up early this morning & made it to the 8am service for the Women's Day event at church today. The theme, "Are You Thirsty?" the colors were cream & mocha, well I order a cool suit from Victoria Secret & a nice chocolate top. I was actually pretty close to the swatches they provided. I am so full right now I just wanted to SHOUT! WOOHOOO It was good. . . . .

My son's birthdays is tomorrow. I cut a $100 bill in 2 and put one piece in his card & the other, I hide in his room with another $100. Well I did give a few clues as how to find them. LOL But he has given me a little grief so now its payback time. lol Hopefully he will clean his room in the process. I made dinner with him in mind, filet mignon steaks with bacon, baked chicken for me, cajun pasta with shrimp & chicken, yellow corn (last week), texas toast & twice baked potatoes. He really enjoyed his meal. So did my husband & youngest son. He wants to go out for pizza & I'm sure he wants to do more shopping. He will have to wait on his dad for that one though. Times are tight & I can't be as speedy as I normally do. He understands as I told him I got him Payless gym shoes (which he hates!) but I have to help him enjoy the money, going on out on Monday & Tuesday & going shopping. Man, when I was a kid & I got up to $50 for my birthday, I was so happy. My how times have changed.

I have done walking today, I wanted to do my Leslie walk dvd, boot camp & a yoga stretch but feet are swollen right now. So they are elevated propped on pillows since they are swollen. No Desperate Housewives or Brothers & Sisters so I can workout in an hour or so. . . .

God bless & of course plates all around!

Dee

    You are a wonderful Mother, Dee. God Bless your sons birthday and may he always remember all you have done for him and everybody else. You worked good today. My sista bought a baked chicken from Kroger and I made mashed sweet potatoes. I wish I lived by you because you can cook them Sunday meals. I only like to cook like that on holidays because too many leftovers get wasted. God bless you richly Dee.

    NO!!!! Desperate Housewives and Brothers and Sisters are not on tonight? Oh that's right, last week was the season finale of DH. What did you think of it? I actually thought it was weird the way Catherine left, it seemed like she will be back, and the murderer kid with Lynette's baby, well I thought it was slightly touching, but it could have been more interesting. OH, and what's their names, the Italian chick. Do you think they are permanently gone?

    I'm working on my first novel and it's hard work being a Writer. You have to continual study the works of others and then read the new stuff in the genre that you write in. But my Poetry writing is easier and I love it and I plan on creating Greeting cards for profit. I got a plan! Thanks.

    Dee,

You are so right about exploring our dreams. I'm definitely on my way. A year ago I was in the midst of making my mind up about buying a home. It will be a year on June 8th that I drove to a mortgage broker not knowing what to expect and walked out with a mortgage. While a pending surgery loomed, I kept pushing and found that home for Taylor and I and while on crutches from knee surgery I was packing and moving. Had I not dared to dream of wanting something better, I would still be in the same place. This year as been amazing as I work on my own back and fron yards. It has been hard work but it's finaly coming around. Who would have thought I would be getting my own new windows and roof work done.....Never in a million years did I believe that all I had to do is to just go for it. So when you dream, dream BIG.......God has a plan and you definitely have to believe it to achieve it. I'm proof. So now today I'm dreaming of finally getting this house in order and tickets to Jamaica or Hawaii....it would be good to see my brother. Maybe for Taylor's graduation.....????? I promise to keep you posted.

    My dream won't focus in, but I'm enjoying listening to those of my friends and neighbors. One just got back from Nicaragua. She laughed her head off telling us about it. Best wishes on the Spanish!
