new cat and new clothes

Thursday, August 05, 2010

I was trying to add some pictures to my photo gallery but I can't seem to find the button to do that. So I will try to put them here.



My new cat's name is Puffers or Puff. A member of my church couldn't keep her any more, so I got her. She is very playful and curious.

I bought a suit jacket at the local Goodwill. I am anxious to wear it but it is too hot right now. Here is a picture of me in it.


I think I look good in it. I sometimes look at my shadow while I walk. I hope I am not becoming vain in this weight loss journey of mine. I've been having trouble with following the calories range and exercising lately. (Sorry, lady bugs) I have been wanting to eat Doritos or other salty easy to munch on foods too much.

    Sometimes it's easier to stick to the exercise and diet, think of it as most of the time you get it right. Puff is gorgeous and will be a great companion! Good buy on the jacket, you are ready for cooler weather.

    Puffers is a beautiful cat. How old is she?

Beautiful jacket too. I know it will make you feel so good when you wear it.

wireless internet and heat

Saturday, July 03, 2010

It was so hot in my apartment because my air conditioner conked out a few days ago, that I wanted to step outside. I had gotten wireless internet a while back. So I decided to test my wireless connection. I am sitting outside of my apartment near the sidewalk while I type this. I couldn't get a connection behind my apartment or across the street from my apartment. I think this is so cool and rather futuristic to me. I may have to take a chair outside to play on the computer once and a while.

    I love my wireless. I can go out on my deck and soak up some Vitamin D from the sun, while computing!!

driving anxiety part 4

Friday, June 25, 2010

The driving instructor wants me to get out and practice driving with other people. I don't know if I can find someone. One person said he'd help if I could get access to a car. He suggested that I rent one. I don't know if I can do that. It would probably make me obsess about damages or scratching the car.
What if I get comfortable driving and end up not being able to afford a car? I will try to ask my manager if she'd increase my hours if I re-learned how to drive and got a car.
I was so jealous of people who have money yesterday. Money would help me to have access to problem resolving resources such as a car.

    Getting comfortable driving would be a huge accomplishment as you try to overcome your fear of driving. Don't let fear of not being able to afford a car dampen the joy of becoming a good driver. You've come a long way. Maybe God wants you to drive because He knows you will have a car someday. It won't hurt to ask Him.

  I'm sorry you are so frustrated. Pray to God for the solution for the problem. Don't pray the specifics, just ask God to give you guidance for the solution. I will pray for one, too. When 2 or more pray.....
Love, your sister in Christ,
Amy L. God Bless you and take care! emoticon emoticon

driving anxiety part 3

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

I have a driving lesson today. I will be doing something that I haven't done in over ten years. I'm scared. I want to hide under my bed covers instead of go. Why am I so scared of driving?

    You are very BRAVE to drive when it would be so much easier not to. That's a huge accomplishment! You should be proud of yourself. The more you drive, the more confidence you will have and the less scary it will be.

    It is always hard when you set out to conquer an "obstacle". As the Bible says, "be of good courage" and keep on keeping on. You can conquer the fear of the drive!

Take care and God bless,
Char

    I did okay but my right turns reminded me of a semi rather than a itty bitty car. I did manage to get better at staying on my side of the road when turning right. I almost treated a two way stop intersection like a four way even though I noticed that it was a two way.
I was shaking when I got out of the car. I have already had my second cry of the day.
I want to learn how to drive but it's SCARY. I wasn't too scared on the smallest roads but the return home was SCARY for me. emoticon emoticon
