Blessings on This Lord's Day

Things have calmed down a lot since my little episode. It sure felt great having someone defend me. For many many years it seemed I was always blamed when something went wrong---either it was my fault for being there or it was my fault because I wasn't there. After so long of not getting much support---this sure felt great as well as nerve wracking.

This week has been a fairly good week. Most of the week I wasn't feeling up to par---not really sick but just feeling like I was beginning to come down with something. That is so much improved now....Today has been a good day even with the heat and humidity. Just resting (kicking back ) today as the rest of the week will be busy.

DJ has an appointment with the vet Monday to get his nails cut and I need to pick up a few things at the store, do some laundry, and maybe more weed whacking---depending on the outside temps. Tuesday will be time out with Maria (oldest daughter). We go to the casinos every Tuesday. We only go to the ones that give free play. This is our time together. Wednesday will be mowing again. Thursday is TOPS. So far Friday is clear (this is scary). Saturday will be our monthly family dinner. It is my turn to host so all will be here.

I am thinking about getting a pool-of course I've thought about it for the past 2 years...LOL

Still working on going to Michigan in July.

Connie (granddaughter in the Navy) should be in port (San Diego) by June 15. Her ship is the USS Carl Vinson. It is under heavy guard as it is an Alquida target. We sure will be relieved when she gets in safely. She will get 2 weeks leave in July.

This is my story and I'm sticking to it!!!!!! LOL

Had a very upsetting time Wednesday with a wrecker driver. The wrecker company came to tow the van to the repair shop. The guy was a "smart alec" with an attitude 5 miles wide!! Tuesday I had talked to a very nice lady who took my instructions over the phone as to what I wanted done. The security system in my daughter's van had malfunctioned and tied up everything. The "clicker" wouldn't work. I called this wrecker company to see if they would tow it to the repair shop on a flat bed truck. The lady said no problem so we set the time. The driver was supposed to call Randy (son in law) so he could meet them here with the key and pay them. Well, the guy never called Randy----he just showed up in my drive with a flat bed truck that had a car on it. When I told him he had to put the van on the flat bed he laughed at me. I asked him if he had called Randy..he said no-I was in the area so I thought I would just drop by and pick it up. don't worry I'll get the van towed. I can take the car off, load the van, and tow the car. I said ok but I don't have the key or the money to pay you. He said in a real snotty tone---Chad will pay me and you can pay him. I guess he thought that since I had grey hair and boobs that I didn't know what I was talking about...I happen to know about towing vehicles...

In the mean time I had called Randy to inform him the guy was here. While I was on the phone the driver started hooking the van up to tow it. I called Randy back to see if he was on the way---he was less than a mile away when the guy zoomed out of the drive dragging the van with the front hitting the ground...

Adding to the situation was that I had to leave between 12 and 12:15 to meet a lady to go play cards. Randy was supposed to be here by noon to get their things out of my car-----he wasn't....he showed up about 5 minutes later and the guy had already left with the van. By this time I am in tears because everything is going backwards---generally it takes a lot to get me this frustrated....I was still shaking Thursday morning. Tammy (daughter) called the wrecker company and told them what happened---they got angry with the driver because he didn't follow directions. When Randy confronted the driver, he got nasty with him.

Good news is that I got to my ride on time and had a fun afternoon....

For some reason, I had this on my mind last night and didn't sleep very well....

Anyway----all better now....

    I hate it when people don't listen to us just because we are older and grey haired women. I get the same thing. I hate bad days. It seems like I have a lot of them anymore.

FEAR # 2

Monday, May 30, 2011

What happens when I reach my goal?

1..Will I be consistent and maintain?

2. Will I slip back to old habits?

3. Will I be able to shake the "fat" image?

Why do i keep hanging on to my fears? Over the next few days or weeks, I will be addressing my fears and why I keep hanging on to them. I will be doing this one fear at a time.
Today's fear is success!

Why do I fear success?

1. What if I succeed? Will I be able to maintain? If I happen to revert, how many will say "I knew you couldn't do it'?

2. What will people think if I do revert?

3. "We wondered how long she could keep it up/"

4. Not succeeding puts no pressures on me

5. Why do I give this fear to God then almost immediately take it back?

    I can so relate to this. Once you have turned it over to God, you can not take it back. Leave your trouble and fears with Him. Together you can do this!!!

    Sisters under the skin!!! emoticon How many times have I figuratively beat my head against the wall with number 5?! All of them apply, though. I so need to ask my husband to get on board with me on my journey, and I know he will - but I'm afraid to. I just know he'll be thinking "how long is she going to last with it this time?".....

Why do *I* keep hanging on to my fears and let them keep me frozen here? Thanks so much for blogging about this! emoticon emoticon

Wonderful Sunshine

Friday, May 27, 2011

After this past of week of storms, storms, and more storms, waking up to sunshine and no rain was so refreshing.

Along with the gladness for the sun is some sadness as the grand kids will soon be leaving to return back to Michigan. They are leaving either tomorrow or Sunday. So glad to see the babies. They are 5 months old. Kaleb is so big and Kira seems so tiny. They are 20 days apart. Both are happy babies. Both girls are such good mommies. You sure can tell these babies are well loved.

This afternoon we are planning on visiting some of the casinos.

I did good weight wise this week. I didn't really try much due to not having power part of the time, the kids being here, and the stress of the weather situations. Still went down 1.4 pounds. Now it I keep my head and heart together and continue going down I can still reach the goal I set over 6 months ago and keep renewing each month. Instead of reaching for my goal stick, I grab onto the up down post----could someone please remove that post from my hand?

Blessings to all
