Back in the house fitness is much easier

Thursday, April 16, 2009

It seems like getting in my morning walk is much easier now that I am back in my house. Although walking thru the neighborhood in the morning before the contractors have gotten to work makes me realize how many homes have been left abandoned, how many have been torn down, and how many people are not back in their houses yet. My place is still not finished but at least I can live in it while I finish what is left although I think that I am supposed to get a temporary occupancy permit, that is going to wait until after the weekend when the stove is in and the countertop is installed though, otherwise I don't think that I would even pass for temporary occupancy. It feels good to be home the dogs love it, I love it, there is so much stress that is gone which is probably why I have lost some weight without really trying too hard.

    Keep praying and God will take care of things for you. He wants us to be happy. Sometimes we have lessons he is wanting us to learn. I am glad you are back home and loving it. Stress is bad on all levels so, it is really good that the stress level is decreasing. Have a great day.

Back in the house feeling relaxed

Saturday, April 11, 2009

I think that today is a good day for me to try to get back on track I have moved stuff I'm going to be "roughing" it for awhile because not everything is fully operational but it is good I am there because with certain things staring me in the face I can no longer procrastinate on them. It also means that I am free of my roommate who has been driving me crazy and in her defense I probably have been driving her crazy too. The dogs were happy to be home they love the freedom of their backyard. Just to see how happy they are is worth roughing it. I know things aren't going to be perfect as far as working out and eating right but I think I can get back to my level of motivation I had in January and February.

    As you were clicking your Ruby Slipper heels together repeating to yourself "There's no place like home..There's no place like home" you escaped the castle of the wicked witch and you and Toto are safe and sound in your home. I know how good that must feel. You are FREE!! You do what you want, when you want, how you want, and you can let the pooches do the same.
As far as getting on track or staying in your fitness routine, you'll be fine. But think about it, you are where you want to be in your home, so everything else will fall right in place for you.

    emoticon & emoticon home!
Sounds like things will be better for you now, and since you are aware of some of the trade-offs of being where you are, that should be helpful too!
I wish you the best!
Take care & Spark On!

The roommate saga continues...

Wednesday, April 08, 2009

So I am moving out tomorrow ahead of schedule because I can no longer take it I can no longer stand getting text messages complaining and accusing. Today I moved out some of my kitchen stuff, accidently I got this little omlette pan of hers in with my stuff. Obviously she got home from work saw that I had been moving stuff, but when she saw the pan missing I got this as a text message. "Where is my omlete pan, I bought it and it should stay here." Excuse me but could she have maybe just sent hey I think you grabbed my omlette pan or something along that line. I sent the reply that I must have accidently put it in my stuff when I was cleaning that I would look for it (when I wasn't at work). Her reply "Thats cool. I use it a lot so I would like to have it back." Really, like oh I'm trying to pull a fast one and steal your $5 walmart omlette pan. All of this was added on to the fact that earlier in the day I decided to clean the fridge I sent her a text I'm cleaning the fridge is it cool if I throw out stuff of yours that is expired or rotten. She sent back that was fine as long as I didn't throw out the lettuce and grapes (They weren't expired or rotten so I wasn't going to toss them anyway, don't exactly think she is the brightest crayon in the box) So as I was cleaning i came across some egg beaters and hot dogs the egg beaters were past expiration and I didn't know about the hot dogs so I sent a text asking her about them. Instead of either answering or being a normal polite person I get a text stating Look leave the stuff alone that isn't yours I'm at work and I have a deadline ( I can't remember all of the rest) but you get the tone. Okay fine she's at work but maybe she could have said it nicer or I don't know be grateful that I was cleaning the dang fridge especially when she leaves crap in there to rot all the time. And once again a thanks or something would be nice. I thanked her for taking out the garbage the other day ( for once without my asking.) Anyway I'm leaving work 4 hours early so I can get stuff packed and get the heck out of there because she is making a stressful situation even worse.

Venting

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

One thing that really annoys me is know it all roommates. My roommate proceeds to tell me today that I need to bathe my dogs because their itching is driving her crazy. The funny thing is they don't itch that much but because she is not around them that much ( she stays with her idiot boyfriend a lot ). The reason this really irritated me is that I spent the whole day cleaning the house to include the bathroom which she claimed she was going to clean last week, all this came on the heels of working on my house all weekend and all week NOT even to mention that I coach track and am at practice 2 hours a day, So yes it has been a huge priority to wash dogs that actually don't itch hardly at all...I guess it is just that she constantly B*tches about everything when she does nothing for example today (because I asked her) she took the garbage out for the 4th time since we moved in in September and nevermind that she constantly piles stuff on top of the garbage more instead of taking it out. Nevermind that she has not once vacuumed the living room and nevermind that her idea of cleaning the bathroom is wiping her nasty toothpaste out of the sink. By no means am I the cleanest person in the world but I do keep the common areas clean, I guess what I was hoping for was a thank you instead of her complaining at me to do something else, yet another reason why I can't wait to get into my house.

    How soon until you move into your house? Sounds like she needs to have a "Come to Jesus" talk with you. I know it feels terrible when you feel trapped into having a roommate, let alone having somebody that doesn't help out and then complains about your stuff. emoticon emoticon

    Grit your teeth and take it in stride. Won't be long and you will be out of there when your house is complete. I know it's a hard thing to do, but you'll be glad later on down the road.

Thoughts out to those in North Dakota

Friday, March 27, 2009

I can't help but cry when I see, hear, or read the news about N. Dakota and Minnesota too. 9 months ago I was in their shoes so I can't help but feel their pain, frustration, sadness etc. I wish I could help but I am still recovering from our flood disaster. Its difficult to see those pictures, I know before this happened to me I always found flood water so fascinating now it disgusts me because I know under those waters are peoples' lives everything they own, their memories, their treasures. It reminds me of the things that I was able to replace and the things that I will never get back. For those who are affected by these floods keep your heads up as you sort through the muddy muck and stench and whatever you do throw the fridge out without opening it, otherwise that smell will never leave your senses. My thoughts and prayers are with you, I wish I could offer more, but like you the water has taken it all. There is a light at the end of the tunnel though I should be in my house 10 months post flood.

    You made me think and you brought a lump to my throat. You are doing so well and your wooden floor sounds lovely.


As you say, Our prayers and thoughts are with all those suffering.
