    emoticon - I said the exact same thing this morning! I think our to do lists have babies when we turn the lights out. Someone wise told me to pick 3 or 4 important things that you absolutely want to do in a day. If you get anything else accomplished - BONUS! Good luck.

Too much stress and anxiety...

Monday, July 30, 2012

So last week was bad. Real bad. Too many things happened, one right after the other. I felt like I couldn't even get my feet under me. This week might be a little better, if only because I have "plans" to start taking care of everything that happened LAST week. Here's to praying nothing more happens this week, because I have ENOUGH on my plate right now.

I didn't do well with my eating, but I didn't really throw in the towel either. I took a lot of walks with the dog - so I was at least getting SOME exercise.

The dog is doing well, she is a real sweetie. She's blending in with our family really well.

My internship ends this week. Thank you Jesus. I've been searching for a job for a few months now, but now I can increase the intensity considering my availability just increased. The agency that I interview back at the end of June is, how do I put this, kind of not very "professional." It's too long of a story to write out, but suffice it to say that I am not so certain I want to work for them anymore. HOWEVER, I am so hard-up for a job that if they were to offer me one I would take it out of desperation.

I've sent in my application for my licensure to the state. Now I can start cold-calling agencies and part of my "selling features" is that the licensure process has already been started. Hopefully that will increase my marketability.

Just pray for me. I needed a job, like, yesterday. I am really, really hoping to start work sometime THIS MONTH!!!

    The job market is still really rough out there. My husband hasn't been able to find steady full time work in 3 years so I know how you feel. I hope that this week, and this job search turn out fabulous for you. It's your time! :)

    I totally understand what you are going through as far as trying to find a job. My prayers and well wishes go out to you that you find something that you enjoy doing quickly. Please think twice about taking a job out of desperation. I just did that and the stress of the job is getting to me. So, I'm still putting a lot of efforts into getting a new job.

I did notice that you do have one bright spot in your life right now: you have a dog now that is bring you and your family joy. Hold onto the bright spots in your life.

Hoping things start going better for you.

Too hot and Too Damp

Monday, July 23, 2012

Today's exercise options have just been limited. I tried to get through the whole Brazil Butt Lift today and could only do half of the second video, because I could barely breathe and I was pouring, pouring sweat. It's very humid here, on top of the fact that I was in the basement (for privacy) and it's damp down there. Holy smokes!

I love summer though. I will take this over winter any day.

    I've seen the infomercial for that workout. It looks intense. I would be too scared to try it right now. You are badass for putting in the effort in this heat. emoticon

    I had to laugh at the Brazil Butt Lift thing. I work at a TV station, and the infomercial pops up on the sat feed almost every day.. and suddenly every man in the place slows down... watching the tv...
If yo can get through that tho, more power to ya! Thats some serious work.

New dog update

Saturday, July 21, 2012

So far, so very, very good.

Penny (that's the dogs name) is a very laid-back, chilled out older dog. She hasn't barked once, or run around like a lunatic. She rides really great in the car. She sat on or laid on my lap. We even took her to the in-laws, who have two dogs. She didn't even flinch when they were barking at her or lunging at her. She just turned and walked away. When we finally got her home and let her loose in our HUGE backyard, she ran and ran and ran and sniffed and sniffed and sniffed. Then she rolled around on her back in a few places. Then ran some more.

I showed her where her food and water are. She ate and drank.

Then she came and sat with us on the sofa for a little.

Right now she is laying and sleeping on the blanket we put for her on the floor in front of the fireplace.

Note to self: get a dog bed. I think she would really like it.

She did "growl" at me once, it was when I was kind of hugging her. I don't think she likes that type of closeness. Which is totally cool. I can respect that. She likes to lay on my lap and stuff, so what if she doesn't want me "hugging" her. I can see how that physical boundary of hers could cause a problem for an autistic 3yo that wants to climb all over her.

I want to cry when I think about what she's been through. I didn't realize that my friends have only had her since April. They rescued her from the "Last Chance" animal rescue, who rescued her from being euthanized at another shelter.

She's just a sweet older dog who just needs a quiet place to call home.

    I have a special place in my heart for people who save animals. My two dogs were strays who showed up two years apart -- collars but no tags, no microchips, no response to signs and newspaper ads -- and knowing many people don't want large dogs (Baby is a Boxer and Thumper is a Shepherd mix) I took them in. Now they are best buddies and a source of positive emotion for me. And, they no longer need fear where to sleep, or eat, or being scared on their on. Just as Penny probably feels. Thanks for caring. -- Lou
