Made it out to the coast on Friday for our honeyversary. We got to Seaside, OR around 1pm and there was no power and estimated time for power was 2-3 days, so they asked us if we wanted to stay in Astoria, OR at the hotel there we said yes-they had power. We had a great time, those little coast towns are still without power. People were so nice, alot of locals were staying at the hotels because they had no power or heat.

We went to Ft. Clatsop, Ft. Stevens and the Astoria Column. I climbed 164 steps to get to the top of the Astoria Column. I was proud of myself for getting up those steps. My reward was the view of the ocean and Columbia river where they both meet. It was awesome also the views of the towns, took pictures and had a great time, enjoyed our quiet time. On Saturday night we had a nice dinner prime rib. After 164 steps I figured I could have a nice dinner :) We did alot of hiking on the trails at the forts. There are alot Lewis and Clark trails and historical info, loved it. Overall it was nice just having the us time.

My mom did well on Thursday for her blood transfusion. Although I was irritated with my sister because she was to do half of the time with her at the hospital so I could get back to work and she called me at the last minute to tell me she couldn't show up. Oooh was I hot!! I lost a full days paid, but it's mom so I didn't let her get too upset about it. She must have had some guilt because my sister actually showed up on Saturday and took mom out while we were gone. That in itself was a miracle.

Made same great memories with my hubby. All in all it was a great trip!!! Didn't let the storm ruin it.

Daily thought and reflection

Wednesday, December 06, 2006

Reading todays article was enlightening because it made me think could i be my best friend, to i treat myself the way I treat my best friend, no i don't. My best friend is like my sister and I'm really close. I will drop anything for her as she would for me, yet I can't do that for me as easily. In the past few weeks, I have been putting myself first and it showed this past week with my loss, I will continue to have to do this in order to make my goal, it doesn't mean, I won't be there for others, it just means, I will be there for me first to do my exercise and make sure I make healthy eating choices! It is a big deal to me to get back on the losing streak and finally make my mark. I will learn to love myself, my husband treated me this weekend to foofoo myself, he said go make yourself feel pretty. I want you to go get your hair done because you deserve to do something for you and feel pretty because you are. That touched me deep and yes I did go make myself feel pretty got my haircut and hilited.

Time for oneself!

Monday, November 20, 2006

Well this weekend I realized that I need to make time for myself, not allow others into my space or of sidetracking my goals. Friday, was expected that we were going to my MIL for a visit not a problem but the choices made foodwise were bad, my own fault, I never preplanned the meals around the outing. So this week, I will do better!!!!

I will be in my church's folk choir beginning next Tuesday. I am so exited, I have always been in choirs, glee clubs, etc. All through grade school and high school then church later on in life. I decided I would do things that are in my passion, things that make me feel good inside. :) Yeah!!! I am excited, now I just have to heal up with this nasty bout of bronchitis.
