Well, the evening didn't look like it was going to turn out very well. I went to donate plasma again and was met with a HUGE delay, due to someone not doing my paperwork correctly on Monday. (I was lucky they were even OPEN on the morning of the holiday!) Anyway, the delay was worked out and I wasn't the last donor there! The staff appreciated my positive attitude as well and I even got a hug from one of the nurses!
From there I went to the Christian bookstore. I decided that my friend in Charlotte needed an uplifting card. I like sending him humorous cards, but decided he needed a different one this time. Got to chatting with the cashier about life and mentioned my current employment status (still temporary, but BLESSED to have that!). She commented on my upbeat spirit. It's ALL due to God's blessings! I know I'll come through this, even if it has been 18 months!
When I walked out of there, I felt AWESOME!! There's just SOMETHING about a Christian bookstore! Then I went to buy the Christmas ornament I wanted to get my cousin for her new baby. Have you seen the Noah's Ark ornament? It's ADORABLE!! Bought a little gummy candy (my weakness, so I don't do it often!) from a guy at a candy kiosk, bought dinner and came home.
(I'm sure you just wanted to know ALL about my evening, right?! )
I'll be even MORE blessed this weekend! I'm going to my Mom's tomorrow night. I'll get to have breakfast with my 93-year-old Grandpa on Saturday morning (our usual), go to the Kansas State Fair with my Mom on Saturday afternoon, and attend my alma mater's first football game of the season Saturday night! Then, of course, there's church on Sunday (that's ALWAYS a blessing!) and time with my sister and her family
Have a great weekend, everyone! I hope you are blessed richly as I have been!!
GOD BLESS AMERICA

Well, I stepped on the scale this morning when I went to donate plasma and just about cried!! I've NEVER weighed what I do now! This past month has been one emotional roller coaster after another and I tend to eat when those come along! This weekend hasn't been much better! TONS of food for those of us who volunteered for the Telethon and I partook!
So, I've gotten my WAKE-UP(!) call! Time to get crackin' before I REALLY weigh more than I ever have!
Tonight, I am going to head to bed early. I finally get to go back to work (my temp job --I've had 4 unpaid days off!) tomorrow!!
On the plus side...I did have a positive response to a resume' I sent. I had to send them back a company application, but I have a feeling I want more than they're willing to pay. I even cut my "asking price" by $3,000! We'll just see what God has to say!!
Have a terrific Tuesday, all!!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

Gee, didn't we JUST celebrate New Year's?! Hardly seems possible that in just a month or so, we'll start seeing Christmas decorations go up in the stores and are already seeing Halloween costumes!
I'm sure my neighbors are pleased with me now. I finally mowed the back yard. The only thing that was growing was the "water grass", which was about 2 feet taller than the rest of it so I could easily see where I'd mowed! The rest of it is dormant...
In the past, I always used Labor Day as a "jumping off point", so to speak, for the rest of the year. Which means that I've GOT to get in gear and start watching what I eat/exercise. My main problem is consistency! Well, really, it's that I'm L-A-Z-Y, but I can call it a consistency problem if I want to!!
Have a great weekend, all!! I'm working the Jerry Lewis Telethon on Sunday night & Monday. I used to stay up as long as I could when I was a little kid to watch it. It's a lot more fun to be involved in it!!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

Okay, I don't know WHERE the year was that I USED to have, but I've got 5 MONTHS until I turn the "Big 4-0"! That means no more procrastinating, I've GOT to get serious!! I went to the gym tonight and did an hour on the treadmill. I need to start working in weight training in the next few days. My arms used to be at least SOMEWHAT toned, but now, not so much!
I have been better about watching what I eat. I took one of my "healthier" frozen meals to my temp job for lunch today. For dinner, I had Grape Nuts and a peach. I did have some ice cream afterwards, which I will pay for later, I'm sure. (I think I've developed a bit of lactose intolerance in my "old age".)
At any rate, I sure DON'T want to look like I do now 5 months from today, so I've GOT to quit making excuses! 3 small goals I'm making for myself:
1. Do SOME form of exercise 5 days a week (the WiiFit counts!)
2. Be in bed NO LATER THAN midnight on the week days!
3. Cut down on eating out. (Getting better about this...sorta)
Have a wonderful day, all!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
