A Better Day Planned

Monday, July 05, 2010

After having a slightly down day yesterday, I got a good night sleep and feel much better this morning.

I will be going to the beach today. This will be my first trip in two years. I used to LIVE at the beach growing up. I'm really looking forward to the day. I know I'll get burned depite the sunscreen, but...it'll be worth it. I'm going to be spending time with great people.

  


High Expectations

Sunday, July 04, 2010

Why is it I get high expectations for myself only to find myself falling a little short many times? My self esteem definitely needs working on, but it's hard to do when I'm not working. Money does seem to make the world go around.

I've done a few things with different people and that has helped. I need to find a buddy to hang out with. I just haven't figured out where this is supposed to happen.

Just feeling a little down today. I will look forward to tomorrow and hope that brings a brighter outlook with life.

  


Niece's Wedding

Saturday, July 03, 2010

My niece got married today. The day was absolutely gorgeous - not a cloud in the sky. We ran into a lot of construction on the way to the church. The wedding started late and was definitely the most unique wedding I have ever been to.

It was easier to find the reception. It was held at a gorgeous golf course that my sister and nieces used to work at. Sitting outside waiting for the bride and groom was peaceful. Of course, they were late for the reception, too. My daughter, son-in-law and I couldn't wait 'til we could make our escape. Just that kind of day...you'd have to know the family. There's no way to describe it.

But, we did our family duty and we had each other for company.

  


Disappointment Day

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

My brother called me last night to say that he couldn't get the tickets to the baseball game for Friday night. I was looking forward to it. There's even fireworks after the game. Oh,well!

My Bridge Card has not come in the mail yet. I expected it a month ago. I can't go grocery shopping without it. I guess I have to look at the bright side: there's not much food in the house to tempt me.

I woke up at 1:00 and couldn't fall back asleep. So, I figured I pump up my new balance ball to have it ready for the morning exercises. It wouldn't pump up - so back it goes.

Finally, about 5:00 I fell back asleep. I set my phone alarm for 6:30 and didn't hear it go off. I woke up at 7:00. At that time, I'm usually done with my exercising and half way through my walk. It set me back. I had to pull out all my determination to go on my walk, but I found it someone.

Now I get to go have front brakes put on my van. Something else I'm not looking forward to...but I've already put it off.

It's just going to continue to be one of those days that challenges me. I'm up for it.

  


Busy Monday

Monday, June 28, 2010

I had a very busy day today. I'm trying to get organized still and am helping my youngest get her condo in tip-top shape. My oldest and her husband will be coming up Thursday, and we can't wait to see her. It seems so long ago that I saw her and it's only been two weeks.

I've got my exercise and walking routine back. I've stayed on track as far as eating. So I'm glad for that.

I still haven't found a job. I know it's only been a little over a week, but when your resources are very limited, it's a little bit scary. I put in applications every day. When the right job comes along, it will happen. I just want it to happen yesterday!

I've gotten together with some old friends. I'm glad I reconnected with them. I know I have probably overdid it on the old back today, so I will be calling it an early night. Then, start all over in the morning.
