today feels like friday

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

for some reason, i dont know why, it has just felt like friday.
my cars heater went out yesterday, it had been trying to mess up on me recently, but yesterday finally went.
so after 4 hours in the ice cold and 70 bucks spent at the parts store, my brother, bless his heart, got it fixed.
but all the work ran my battery down, so today, i had to buy battery terminals and get that fixed.
i still am not 100 percent sure about the heat, because i havent been able to drive it.
maybe tomorrow.
i dont know how it is for all of you out there, but here in my neighborhood, i have many many neighbors struggling with their electric bills.
ky power really stuck it to us here, we live in the coal fields and my man along with hundreds of others in this region risk their lives under ground mining the coal out, and yet, we cant catch a break on our electric bills.
a friend told me last week that he was sick and i asked if he had the flu, and he said no, the stress of worrying about his 600 dollar electric bill was more than he could take.
im just venting.
did 20 minutes on my bike and might do 20 more to release some of this stress.

    I keep my heat turned down low , but I feel cold all the time. I can't afford high winter bills either. I am glad I invested in a eclectric blanket , so I can sleep good.

Sorry to hear about your car problems. Hope the heater works when you go somewhere.


Exercise is a great stress reducer. emoticon

    I am glad you got your car fixed. With that cold streak going through you need the heater. I can not even contemplate those electric bills. That is terrible. No wonder people are stressed. Congrats on getting in the bike riding.

happy new year

Saturday, January 01, 2011

So, I did get my hair colored and cut and I have to say, it looks good and I am happy with it.
Had a good New Years Eve with my honey, visited with family, went out to eat, shopped a little then home for WII and fireworks.
Now I am letting honey sleep in, as he has to return to work on Tuesday.
It has been nice having him around these last 10 days.
Hope everyone has a nice New Year Day and a great year all around.
And, my new years resolution, which I havent really made an official one, I guess is to just really try to focus on my health more, eat healthier, exercise more, sleep more and take my vitamins and try to be more positive.
and in this economy that is a big feat.

what time is it?

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

i gotta say this little break i have taken for myself, from all the food tracking and exercise tracking and posting comments....has done a world of good for my disposition.
i dont feel stressed because i havent stepped foot on the scale in probably close to 2 weeks.
why is it i can walk by the scale now without giving it a second glance, when before, i was on and off the scale several times a day?
i am not putting down sparkpeople, i do plan to return to my plan and tracking, all that....after the holidays, maybe 2 or 3 weeks after.
im not making a new years resolution for be here every single day, or to even lose weight, because i know how much of a set up for failure that is.
i dont think i have been eating more than i normally do, in fact, for some reason i have barely eaten anything today.
i am not hungry, and hadnt even really thought about it until just now.
i have been pretty busy trying to do some house work and just staying busy.
i hope all of you are doing well and doing what you need to do, for me, right now this is what i need to do.

    I've been there! Have you read Women, God & Love? This really put things in perspective for me. I took a few months to get right with myself. It is amazing when you can rid yourself of the scale and counting and tracking. I left it all behind. I lost 10 pounds that way. ...Not right away, of course, but when I let go of the stress and the worry. About 2 months ago, I finally started movin'. I've just started tracking for balance...not for calories or weightloss. I think you are on to something! Best wishes!!

no thank you

I have made another 5 dozen pieces of candy.
Just a few days I made, 12 dozen....wow, and I havent eaten any.
I made the bulk of it for honey to take and give to the men he works with.
And upon hearing about it, some friends asked for some, so I made more tonight.
I do enjoy making it, but my kitchen is a disaster area, I do need to get to that.
I got so upset today, I ordered some food for honey to take to work since we were running errands and running late, and when I got there, I had more food than I had ordered, I told the lady I hadnt ordered double, but she told me I was mistaken and that I had to pay for it because I got confused.
I kindly picked up the food I did order and left the rest of it sitting and informed her that she was the one mistaken and confused and that since no one worked there with any competence, I wouldnt be ordering food there again.
I know this wasnt the mature way to handle it, but it sure felt good at the moment, since I have ordered food there before and my order is either yukky, cold, old or otherwise unpleasant to eat.
No big loss in my book.
But I really do need to get to that kitchen.
just days now.

    I don't know what's immature about that - I would have done exactly the same thing. Actually, I might possibly have left ALL of the food there and gone somewhere else, just on general principle. But I can be a right b****.

Well done on making and NOT EATING all that candy! Amazing. Sorry your kitchen's a disaster, though.

slide and push

Tonight is our towns Christmas parade, well, this evening actually.
I had thought about maybe going, but its just so cold, and since there is only one road into the town, its probably already blocked off since it was to begin at 5.

I dont regret not going because the parade wont last long, it never does and I would be standing out in the cold, alone for no reason other than to see a fire truck go by and throw some candy out to a few red nosed children.
We live in a very small town with limited resources and resourcefulness.
I do regret being bored to death.
I thought about going to Walmart, as my new glasses just arent cutting it, they look great on me and I love the style, but, I had them loosened because they were rubbing a place on my face, only now I think they are too loose and I have to keep taking them off to adjust them.
They are heavy.
I have until the 9th to decide to keep or trade. I will go tomorrow and see what my options are. I know they were limited when I chose this pair.
So other than this, I have little else to report, am hoping honey wont have to work tomorrow so we can do dome Christmas decorating and maybe a little shopping to boot.
So I have stuck to my plan today, havent been on my bike yet, but the evening is young, I usually get on around time for Nancy Grace.
Hope you all stay warm and have a nice weekend.
