I had a lesson in patience today. Yesterday at work, my cell phone went out. I was miserable. I got to thinking, how did we get along and survive without cell phones? I make the joke if I had a cell phone and facebook in high school, my Mom would still be kicking my butt today because my usage Thank God we didn't, probably wouldn't of graduated. Well it made for a long shift without checking emails. blogs and keeping contact with the outside world. I immediately decided I was going to Walmart and pick up a new one and switch things over. This time I was going to get insurance too.
Bought the phone, charged it up overnight, jumped up this morning and began the task to switching things over. Got that done, then I started looking at my other phone that went on the blink yesterday. I only had it for about 120 days and its foolish, simply foolish for me to waste money. I began rummaging around for my receipt and found out I was passed the return date. I poked around and found a customer service number for Samsung and placed a call to them. I was pleasantly surprised. The operator took my information and walked me through a reboot process after I described my dilemma. It seems my system was frozen during its update yesterday and I had to reboot the entire system for the update. He was cordial, polite and very patience with me during this process. Needless to say, my old phone is performing like an champ and now I have the task of returning the new one and updating my old data. I think this time I will buy a larger sd card for memory and just put the apps on there I use mostly when I am away from my computer. One thing I learned from this little ordeal is patience, don't be so quick to jump the gun. Also I learned to use only Samsung adaptors only, don't try to configure an ATT one for this phone, it may cause further damage.
Patience is the virtue I continuously pray for

I enjoyed my long weekend, back to work today and hopefully I will see movement in my application process. May it be so Lord. I am going with the flow. I have a lot of things to take care of in this holiday season and I want to keep my feet firmly planted on solid ground, I do not want to veer to the right or the left. My family is making preparations for the our Christmas celebration. I just about finished with my Christmas list, now its time to pick cards and make mailing labels. I am putting pictures up here in the apartment to make it more homey and I am preparing for a TurkeyTrot 5k next week. Can you believe it, next week is Thanksgiving. I saw some decent low calorie recipes here on spark people for veggies I may try and I am going to do my best with baking, preparing for Christmas of course. Trying to show off my culinary skills a bit , well at least I am claiming them!
I enjoyed my long weekend and I pray that God guides me at work, the burden is light and I excel at everything I put my hand to . In Jesus' name, Amen!

Today is the day that employer gave us off for Veteran's Day so I made the most of it despite a sinus flare up. I needed an extra day off, work has been fast and furious and my knee has been crying for some rest. I made the most of my day off starting off with a very early dental appointment at 8:00 am. I have been putting off this dental work for the most of the year and I knew I was going to be in the chair for more than a minute. I don't like long appointment on days I have to work, so I finally went in and about three hours later I was done As the staff at the dental office constantly remind me, I have great insurance. I translated that into use or lose, it doesn't roll over every year.
I gotten into the habit of scheduling my annual "oil and lube" job at my Dr.'s office and my annual mammogram. Well the dentist appointment took over the first appointment, but I did go in for my yearly check of the "girls". My Mom always stressed this with me and my sisters and i faithfully carry it out. I will call my Dr. tomorrow to schedule my last appointment for the year. Thankfully next year, my health benefits increase a bit with office visits. Hopefully I won't need them, but it is good to have back up.
I was going to take my Hezakiah in for his annual shots today, but I scheduled my last appointment too tight, so he and I will be venturing into to the Vet Friday morning. I picked up a few things at Walmart instead and treated myself to a much need pedicure and manicure. My feet sang with joy, getting all that dead skin off. She buffed my nails so smooth, better job than what I was doing on my own. Glad I did it, nothing like pretty feet
I was going to head out to pick up a few things my sister wants from the mall for gifts to give overseas, but I decided to stay and tackle my dirty bathroom and save that trek for Saturday, I rather not drive out in the dark, not familiar with this particular mall layout and parking situation. Overall it is a great day, grateful for being a Veteran and grateful that my company is giving me the day off

I spent another low keyed day, just basking in the glow of God's love. I stocked up on some good fruits and veggies at Trader Joe's, even buying a new cereal to help me put something on my stomach in the mornings. I am taking it easy my Veteran's weekend. I have tomorrow off and plan on getting my dental and yearly mammogram out the way. One of my poodles is also scheduled for his shots as well, so I will knock that out the way also. I am hoping to finish tackling this second bedroom and getting my desk put together and creating my studying and reading area. I got to watch a bunch of home shows this weekend, my creativity juices got to flowing. I just kept things simple and slow today, didn't feel much like running all over the city like I use to on the weekends. I am focusing on God's word and applying it to my life and watching my actions. I can't worry or look at what someone else is getting into or getting ahead, I have to get this for myself, this being the life that God has charted for me. I can't look to the left or the right and worry about others, I need to concentrate and focus on what God has planned for me!

I have godly wisdom and I use it for every situation and I stand firm on God's word that I will be victorious. I am setting my sights to move forward, bigger and better. I have a gut feeling that I will get my promotion, I will relocate again and I will find that special man to share life with. In divine order that God puts things, in accordance to His word 1 Peter 5:5-6 God will promote me at the right time and everything will fall into place. I am not to be anxious or worried.
I took this Saturday to rest, make a healthy spaghetti dish and watch a little TV. I didn't rip and run all over, tiring myself out. I used this day to catch up with my bible studies, catch up on some rest and do a few things here in the apartment. I touched base with my sister and family back home. My Dad and Step-Mom are getting into a festive frenzy preparing for everyone being home for Christmas. I am staying here in KC for Thanksgiving, doing a Turkey Trot 5k in the morning and just coming home resting, addressing Christmas cards and trying my hand at baking bread. I am not into preparing a full fledged meal, I just want to watch my portions and make healthy choices, get some cardio in and give God the glory!
I expect great things to come way and I rejoice in the Lord always, again I say I rejoice I can do all things thru Christ who strengthens me!
