    Always gotta track Santa. We need to know where he is so that we'll know when to get ourselves into bed so that he can come to our house without being seen by awake adults. emoticon

Handbook 2010

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

I got this in an e-mail from a very good friend so I'm sharing it with all of you!


1. Drink plenty of water.
2. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
3. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants..
4. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm and Empathy
5. Make time to pray.
6. Play more games
7. Read more books than you did in 2009 .
8. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day
9. Sleep for 7 hours.
10. T ake a 10-30 minutes walk daily. And while you walk, smile.

11. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
12. Don't have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
13. Don't over do. Keep your limits.
14. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
15. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.
16. Dream more while you are awake
17. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..
18. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner with His/her mistakes of the past. T hat will ruin your present happiness.
19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
20. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
21. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
22. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
23. Smile and laugh more.
24. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree...

29. T ry to make at least three people smile each day.
30. What other people think of you is none of your business.
31. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

32. Do the right thing!
33. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
34. GOD heals everything.
35. However good or bad a situation is, it will change..
36. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
37. T he best is yet to come..

My tree

Monday, December 21, 2009

I got the tree out today, there is really no good side to it anymore. The thing is only 3 feet tall, can't really get a good picture of it. The cats could care less.

I got project done today that I have been working on for a couple days, can't wait for Christmas now.

The exercise has been great this week.

    I also think your tree looks fine. Lucky that the cats could care less. I only put mine up last night and I've already had to rehang quite a few ornaments...and found Aspen curled up in the middle of it sleeping this morning.

    I think your tree looks fine. I bought a 3.5 foot pink tree for my daughter's room this year and she decorated it herself. You know, all the decorations are close together and near the bottome. :0)

I did get in touch with my son. He was working on Saturday. He is a carpet installer for a family run company so he is out on the road. He's not doing so well but he's coping as best he can.

I did get in 70 minutes of exercise today and I added in my food for Friday since I know what I will be eating that day.

So now on to another HUGE problem here on Spark.

At a loss

Saturday, December 19, 2009

My son still doesn't answer his phone when I call. Today I called 3 times, 30 minutes apart, left messages saying I would call back and nothing. I dont know any of his neighbors, he does not have a wife that I know of, if I call the place he works he will get pissed at me. So I guess I just wait until he will answer. I just hope he is ok.

I didn't go for an outside walk this morning, I got up too late. I took an excedrine migraine at 3AM to stop the pinched nerve pain so I could get some sleep. I did get in 30 minutes of Walk Away The Pounds and 30 minutes of exercises. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

    This is the Christmas season, I am sure he is ok. He is just probably busy, I am not saying that is an excuse! My son is the same way, sometimes he goes weeks without calling. He knows how much I love him so he makes sure everyone else is there that he is not so sure of and I am always the last call. Hang in there, they hurt the ones they love the most!!

    I second Sianana74's comment. If he doesn't want you to call him at work then he should return your calls. I hope that everything is okay with him and that you get to talk to him soon.

    When was the last time you got in contact with him? I would call him at work just to make sure he is alive if it has been more than a week without a return call. That way you can just say "Hi, just want to make sure you are alive. Call me back when you have time after work." That way you aren't taking up more time than needed and you can hear he is still breathing.

Good luck!
