My first blog of the new year and I couldn't think of anything but my goals.
1. Get more sleep. I have a lot of trouble with that. It's not so much me, it's my body and mind saying I've had enough after about 5 hours and I just wake up and can't get back to sleep. So from now on I'll lay there and try harder to get back to sleep.
2. Eat more fresh fruits and veggies and less canned ones. They are too convenient when I'm in a hurry to get dinner. If I take my time and work a little harder cutting the fresh ones up, I will appreciate them more.
3. Shake up my exercise routine more often. Mostly I change it only once a month but I will be doing it twice a month now.
4. I will fold the clothes and put them away after I laundry them!
5. I will be more patient and I will take things less personal.
I think those are good starts for me for the new year. I put them out there so you all could help me be accountable! HUGS!

I woke up this morning feeling like an old lady. My ear was stopped up from sinus, the inside of my left elbow was hurting, my right knee was aching, my last two fingers on my right hand feel like they're asleep and I had the headache. Yep, I'm having a poor me day. *sigh*
I feel like I'm falling apart at the seams. Gosh I don't think anyone else in this universe feels like that ever. Uhuh! I know there are so very many people everywhere that are much worse off than me, but this "oldness" is new to me and I certainly don't like it. The sluggishness, the arthritis, the "whatever" attitude.
Oh I muddle through my days and do what needs to be done, I get my exercises in, my errands run, take care of my dad's needs, be here for my husband with dinner ready when he gets home, but in between all that, I've lost me.
I know I will find me again I just need to keep looking. I've gained and lost the same 5 pounds for the past 6 months. I've changed my routine to get off that plateau but I'm still doing my balancing act on the edge of the cliff.
There are times I want to resign from the human race and come back as a cute little puppy that is cared for and loved as much as I loved my sweet Benny. Yes, I know that isn't going to happen, but it's nice for dreaming.
Okay, my poor me time is over. Thanks for stopping by! HUGS!

That I feel unappreciated, left out, made look stupid and unimportant. I hate days like that. And no, I'm not talking about my hubby. He's about the only one who isn't like that anymore.
All the things I do, and some of the things I say go completely unnoticed by many people and it hurts more than I ever let on.
Sorry, just needed to vent and get that out. Hugs!

How many of you actually remember buying penny candy..when it was still a penny! If you had a nickle you count get a really good candy bar, and gosh, if you had a dime..the possibilities! When a daily newspaper was 3 cents, or you were safe staying out after dark, if you were allowed?
Just a few things since I was born I've seen, a president assassinated, the Vietnam war and the so called end of the Vietnam war, and the soldiers who came home and were ridiculed rather than praised for their tours of duty. I've seen another president shot at, the first moon landing and the first man stepping on the moon.
I've seen hippies, flower children, knew about communes, and the evil of Charles Manson. I've seen the hate of people for one another and the love of them too.
I've seen the times when winter was winter and all the seasons came on time. I've lost many a loved one and welcomed many babies into our lives.
I've seen party lines turn into private lines into cell phones. I've seen the invention of the home computer and how the school system has change because of all this technology.
Today marks the 100th birthday of one of my neighbors. Oh the things she has seen change in that 100 years! A curse and blessing both I would imagine. I can't even fathom living to be 100 years old. God bless you Cecil!
