Disappointment and Joy

Wednesday, December 08, 2010

The Christmas party was a bit of a disappointment. It was a combination Avon meeting/Christmas party. There were a couple of women who brought their three-year-old ish unruly children. The rest of us couldn't always hear what was being said at the meeting and we couldn't really hold conversations at the party. And forget about getting up for anything! The kids were running around the hall the whole time. I did get a couple nice gifts out of it, so that part was good.

The joy came today. As much as I often wish for a different job, I found out that my temporary job has been extended through the new year. I really need to make and save as much money as I can while I can at this job. With the economy, who knows when I will be able to find another one.

    LOL... I can't help feeling sorry for the women with their unruly toddlers. I am sure they would have loved to sit and talk peacefully and enjoy the party too... Great news about the job!

Despite the Cold...

Monday, December 06, 2010

I woke up to a blustery day with a temperature in the 20's, a wind chill in the lower teens, and snowflakes blowing around. I really thought about not taking my walk at lunch. But, I know I need a break from sitting in the office. And I know it would be even colder when I got out of work. So, I was a good girl and took that walk. I was definitely cold when I got back, but I warmed up quickly and felt ready to get back to work. It did me good. I have decided, though, that I am taking a scarf tomorrow since the weatherman said it will be a little colder.

    In the 20's and you still went walking?? You deserve a medal!

I've excused myself from walking because it was low 50's outside. Of course, that speaks to my lack of willpower. lol

You've inspired me to bring a scarf or earmuffs to work. No more excuses!

Thinking About New Goals

Sunday, December 05, 2010

Maybe it's the time of year, but I have been thinking about setting some new goals for myself. I'm trying to give it a lot of thought. What do I want to do next year? What do I don't want to do? What needs to change and what needs to stay the same? What is the best way to accomplish all this? All these questions will take the rest of the month to think about. But, I think it's time to come up with New Year's Resolutions that I will follow through on.

    I've been doing the same thing, also. My big thing is trying to make my goals not about weight or inches lost. It's hard not to focus on those things when trying to do health related goals.

    Great idea. I've been thinking the same thing, but haven't had the time to really sit down and give it the thought it needs. Let us know how it goes.

Holiday Happiness is Emerging

Saturday, December 04, 2010

I started the week slightly panicked about the approaching holidays. I was so not ready. But, slowly, during the week I would accomplish a couple things here and a couple things there. I went to my niece's holiday choir concert Thursday. I am definitely feeling like I'm more in the holiday spirit today. My aim is to be child-like in my celebrations and just enjoy every activity to the fullest.

    You Go! Let's put all the negative that followed us this year in a box with a pretty bow and leave it by the curb. They can take it to the landfill. Have a Glorius holiday! emoticon

    Sounds like a great plan. My cards are out, and I've done some shopping and wrapped some gifts. If I didn't buy anything else, at least I would have some gifts under the tree.

I like your idea of approaching the holidays with a child-like spirit.
