Mid January Blues

Sunday, January 16, 2011

I often wish I had more intelligent things to write about in fact I have had several times where I had meant to commit to memory a profound thought I had had (yes I can still get them at my advanced age of 49) to use HERE only to forget it). It has been snowing practically non stop going on 2 weeks now and even though it might be honest exercise I am getting sick to death of shovelling (not to mention how high the piles are and the fact that I am running out of spots to put the @##$#@~!! stuff). I also dislike the fact that we haven't had much in the way of sunshine yet this month (usually its cold and sunny - which s better than cold AND cloudy) coupled with the fact that its dark when I go to work and the sun is setting less than an hour after I get home. (What did my ancestors do before artificial lighting ??). The only saving grace I can see is that the month is nearly half over and in a couple of months it should be spring. Can't come too soon. At least we don't get a lot of tornadoes and we don't have troubles with snakes and insects as much as some other folks do.

Halfway holidays

Wednesday, December 29, 2010

Well I am about halfway done my holidays in the sense that I still have 3 vacation days that I had to take left so I am dreading going back in some respects as I detest my employer with a passion (actually its more the bosses than anything of course that's true of any employer). Its funny because if I were to tell some of you who I worked for (AND I WON'T SO DON'T ASK!!!!) you would think I was crazy as there are a lot of stereotypes out there. I have accomplished some things as well as failed miserably at others (sound familiar, reader?) but I am grateful to my higher power (Jesus Christ) for helping me along (sorry 13 years in a 12 step program the old habits and ways of doing things die hard) . As I think St Paul once said "in Christ all things are possible " I hope that includes weight loss - I am terrible at that!! In case this is my last one this year (hopefully NOT)-
Have a Happy Safe and Prosperous New Year

(an unapologetically religious blog about) Christmas

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

I just started my vacation at 4 pm today (quitting time from Her Majesty's salt mines aka the tba employer) , yet already I am conflicted. I dont know if its just me but I seem to have a lot of mixed up emotions from this time of year. I know from being a kid I still have A LOT of baggage from family fights, dissapointments ,etc from this time of the year. And I know, inspite of my best efforts ( and time attending a 12 step program etc ) , that I still have a lot of demons in the closet. I also seem to have a lot of guilt for seemingly becoming the ONE THING I used to dispise when I attended Mass every weekend (a "C and E" er) !! Well I suppose my Savior will hopefully accept me as a I am- a broken human being ( who never said he was perfect).
Merry CHRISTmas !

nothing about something

Monday, December 13, 2010

I have been meaning to do one of these for a while and even though I really dont have time tonight I though I could use the points. Not to mention I feel alot more friendship here than I do with some of the people I am forced to work with - I started to grow a beard and because I still have a paunch and a GREYING but not GREY beard well I guess you can put 2 and 2 together. Needless to say I was NOT happy.
