Yawn

Saturday, January 14, 2012

Wow it's been a busy day...cleaning, laundry, get son from friends then to the gym with mom and a trip to the bread outlet...great deals on wheat light bread :) then home again where dd2 dropped of the baby for the night...wohoo...we've been playing and singing and talking up a storm...he sure is an active little guy for not being able to go anywhere yet...lol. He's been fed for the night and i'm one tired girlie...so off to bed with me :)

Today verse:
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. - Psalms 23:4

Quote:
The one person who most blocks you from a full, happy,
and successful life is you. They are therefore wise who
make themselves an asset. We can be our own worst enemies
or best friends. We can be a source of trouble or a cure
for trouble. So if you feel empty, as many do, start by
getting free from yourself as a first stop to vibrant living.
~Norman Vincent Peale

From That to This

Friday, January 13, 2012

Yesterday was a beautiful 45 degree day...and i'm not complaining...i mean, for an Ohio winter...this has been very mild...this is only the second snow of the season... i count it a blessing when we are in the middle of January and only 2 snows...but what gets me is that yesterday was that 45 degrees..and today...uhg...roads awful and a balmy 19 degrees this morning...talk about a shift...not a snow flake yesterday to be seen...and then this...


beautiful yes...when i was on the inside looking out...lol. Today looked like a reverse snow globe...i was in the globe and it was snowing on the outside...pretty kewl...until i had to go out in it...yuk...and by the time i got done with all my running and the extra time it took, plus working late to boot...there was no time for the gym again today :( but tomorrow we are hoping to hit it hot and heavy...so for today...a little extra time on the house...and it's soooo needed...so again...i can't really complain... and the overtime is going to come in handy to... so counting it all blessing :)

Today's Verse:
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. - Galatians 2:20

We cannot choose our external circumstances,
but we can always choose how to respond to them.

    We got less snow than you did, but it was enough to make it look beautiful - but too soon it becomes grey slush whichis not beautiful. I'm sure I would appreciate snow better if I didn't live in a city. BTW, quote is soooo true!!!

    I love the snow. I don't like it when it is just cold without snowing. That is what we get most of the winter. We are getting more snow than usual this year. I'm not liking that we are looking at 50 below zero this weekend though. Hope yours is warmer and wonderful.

When Things Don't Go As Planned

Thursday, January 12, 2012

I knew it would happen...i would have just one of THOSE days, where nothing goes as planned...and though it wasn't a "bad" day...i mean, i have had worse...it sure wasn't a good day either...so rewind to this morning...i skipped doing the dishes so i could get to work a little bit early...and ended up...just on time...gggrrrr...then check my bank account and a check i wrote a month ago and had forgot about went through...and of course not enough money to cover it... so the money that would go in tomorrow wouldn't be enough to pay the bills that i have already sent the checks out on...because i just knew it would be there... so instead of getting out early (because i didn't get there early) and instead of hitting the gym at full throttle...i was busy running around...well...driving around...lol... to borrow money to get in the bank then back to the bank which is the total opposite direction than i had just gone...and i end up home later than if i would of gone to the gym on a normal night...double ggggrrrr...one of the office girls was off today, which meant i was busier than normal...if stress burns calories then i probably burned more than if i had gone to the gym....lol...

The good news though is i have money in the bank once again and i did get a short walk in during my lunch break :)

And tomorrow is another day :)

Bible verse for today:
He that watereth shall be watered also himself. (Proverbs 11:25)

The afternoon knows
what the morning
never suspected.

Funny Conversation Between Mom & I

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

I believe laughter is the best medicine. Even when you have nothing ailing you :) Sometime laughter happens just out of the blue...like this email conversation between my mom and i about this bike at the gym. Hopefully you will get as good as laugh as we did...i was giggling so hard my co-workers thought i was nuts...lol...

ME: did you happen to try the bike with the arm things... that is what i did yesterday...total body work out...
MOM: Yes I believe I did the one over by where we did the treadmills
ME: that's the one...it's a killer but...i can't help but love it...of course i have to be really careful...i'm afraid my arms are going to go flapping and knock me out...lol
MOM: You think you got problems I have a black eye boy when those wings get to going you canít hardly stop them and when you try to avoid them by bobbing and weaving people look at you funny like you have tourets or something
ME: oh that's nothing...see how they look at you when your head gets caught between the 2 flapping wings and your head goes back and forth like a tennis ball.... it was awful... they were pointing and laughing...
MOM: WHY THAT SEEMS RATHER HARSH I HATE SKINNY PEOPLE
ME: Me too :)

I'm still giggling as i read this..i know...we are kinda disfunctional that way...lol...

A bible verse for today:
Philippians 4:7
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

A quote for today:
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
~ Thomas A. Edison ~

Planning Ahead-Are You Worth It

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

As i was almost done with my work out today, i was thinking of all that i needed to get done... dishes to do, dinner to cook, a house to clean, laundry to do...still work a full time job, take time to be with family and still manage to get some sleep...lol...and i am going to add 45 minutes to an hour each day to my already to busy schedule to work out??? am i crazy... yea...i must be... but then i thought of all those years when i was too busy for me... i was a house wife for 10 years with 3 kids...and then a single mom of those 3 for the last 16... i had to go from being a busy wife and mother to a then working single mom of 3 young children...i put everything aside to raise those beautiful babies that God gave me... but now... the last one getting ready to graduate...2 are married and starting their family... and if not now, when will be the time i have this elusive time to take care of me... the fact is...i had the time then also...it's all called priorities... yes, they were top priority and i do not regret one moment of the sacrifice...but now...now is the time for me... now i have to make me priority...i can still be employee full time, i can still be mom and i can now even be grandma...but with some planning and taking care of first things first..i can be me also... cleaning will get done...and goodness knows we have not gone hungry yet...lol... but the planning... in the evening i spend time with those i love...that means the dishes don't get done...that's ok...they can be done when everyone else is sleeping...for me...that is first thing in the morning before work... on Sunday, i can boil eggs for breakfast for the week, and during my lunch break i can plan my meals and do quick errands... this free's me up an hour each day to exercise... so yea...it does take some planning...but...i am worth it...

    Children are definitely worth making a priority. My daughter graduated last year, so I am able to make myself a priority now. I can take the time to get in my workout. I'm glad you are making yourself a priority, that means you'll be able to enjoy those grandbabies a lot longer and they will have an active grandma that plays with them.

    In order to give your best to those you love and care for, you have to give your best to yourself first - YES, you are worth it!!!
