I am happy today is Friday. I am ready for it. I haven't slept good all week and I'm hoping for a few extra hours tomorrow morning.
Tomorrow my sister Connie and I will be going to my mom's house and cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. We will be gutting her bedroom and cleaning it from ceiling to floor and everything in between. She has started having a problem w/wolf spiders and we wants to check her room for cracks etc. Mom was bit by a about 30 years ago and almost lost her leg. She was in the hospital for a month with several different types of antibiotics so you can understand at 71 the fear she has now.
Things seem to be settling down some at work. The new management is nice but they had no idea what they were getting in to when they took over our agency. We average about 100 mental health assessments a month. Last month we had 189. So far this month through yesterday we have had 105 already. It's going to be another BIG month and we'll see how they can handle it again twice in a row.
On that note.. have a nice Friday everyone. ~ Donna
So....I'm reading away at my SP emails this morning and I'm watching Coach Nicole bust a move on Lying Straight-Leg Lowers. Now I must say her form is awesome but I have to tell you about mine too and it's not nearly as pretty as hers.
First with a knee replacement it's very difficult to get down on the ground...whew I'm finally down.
Now...if I can look over my boobs (which are as big as a mountain ) I might be able to see how to lift my legs in good form.. but nope that's not going to happen...well maybe...
Okay got those legs up.. but they aren't straight and I can't raise them like she can but I can still try and here goes.. yep...just a bit more..whooo..there we go.. finally raised up and I can see them now
Okay...so I'm busting out 2 sets of 15 and now..I have to get back up off of the floor It's like doing it all over only in reverse. Whew...I made it..
So now of course I feel like an Olympian because I can get up and down and off of the floor on my own.. who'd have thought?
I may not look as good, or have form like some of the expert exercisers but I try and trying is worth it especially when in the end, it will yield results. And it also helps being in the privacy of your own bedroom where no one else can see you.. Just saying...
And on that note..happy Wednesday other wise known as hump day. We are 1/2 way through our work week and can begin to look forward to the weekend once more. ~ Donna
How are you all doing? Great I hope. Aren't you glad that we are given another day to start all over again? I sure am! Yesterday was tough at work. We were so busy that we were running around like a chicken with it's head cut off. So busy and no one extra to help pick up the busyness of the day. But.....the day flew by quickly. I took Scoobie to the vet yesterday for his year check up and phenobarbital level. He passed everything with flying colors. Scoobie.
So I am going to make the best of my new morning because I was given an extra day to share myself and my talents with others. And don't you think for one minute that you don't also have talents....namem' for me..! And don't think yer braggin' on yerself if you share cause we all have things we excel at.
Here are some of mine.
1.) I love helping people
2.) I'm compassionate
3.) I love all of my family no matter what they may do
4.) I am a poet
5.) I am a song writer
6.) I learn from mistakes and don't make them over (now that's talent)
7.) I sing in a county band called Klassic Kountry (all of the older country music)
These five signs are basically
1. ) Eat Right: Healthy Skin Starts with Healthy Eating
2. ) Wear Sunscreen: The Perfect Anti-Aging Cream
3. ) Stay Hydrated: Water is the Fountain of Youth
4. ) Drink Less: Alcohol Ages You
5. ) Don't Smoke: Tobacco Tarnishes Your Skin
Now I can honestly say that 3 - 5 I've never had an issue with. For no# 2 I'm rarely in the sun for long periods of a time because my skin is very fair and I don't want to burn.. lol and well no#1 I've been working on for the past year and a half fairly regularly yet not as daily as I should. I've lost 56 lbs. I've always been told that I do not look my age.. (sometimes I don't act it either, but hey you have to have fun right?)
Yesterday at mom's we bought a back of stick on mustaches and had a blast taking pictures..
My niece Becca (who actually looks great in a mustache)
My niece Becca, sister Connie and daughter Angie
My favorite pic though is this one without the mustaches. Dtr (Angie. 32 yrs old) Neice (Becca 20 yrs old) Me (Donna 54 yrs old) my mom (Kay 71 yrs old) and sister (Connie 52 yrs old)
Personally I don't think any of us look our age accept maybe Angie and Becca.
Thank you for allowing me to share my pics with all of you. ~ Donna
Good morning sparkers......I ran across this quote this morning while reading my SP emails.
And....of course I have a few things to say about it.
1.) First it is not rude it's the only way he can conduct his chorus
2.) Sometimes you have turn your back on something in order to make accomplishments
3.) Sometimes it includes people / friends that are bringing you down
4.) Sometimes it will be what gives you the drive to succeed because you can see that you finally can
5.) Sometimes just because...
Why do you need to let everyone in on your desires and secrets? Why can't you just be and if that includes having to do it on your own and turn your back against the things that are bringing you down than that is all the more reason to do it...so you can SUCCEED!!!!
