"Finish each day - and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities have crept in
Forget them as soon as you can."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Some very good advise. Today I feel like I have failed in so many ways - in my relationships, in my finances, and in my faith. But, yesterday is gone - never to be seen again (I hope!!! - would certainly not want to be 25 again - been there, done that).
Today is a new day!!! I feel like I have started over again and again and again. But, am so thankful that I can!!!
Have started drinking more water and thank you all for all the encouragement!! You cannot know how much I look for those little notes!! This week my goal is 6 glasses a day. I know I can - I proved it last week.
My goal this week is to increase my steps. I have joined the Step Diet team and have ordered the book - will be so glad when it comes. Last week I just recorded the number of steps each day that i usually take. Not really very many - I feel like a tortoise compared to others on the team - but just watch out - my numbers are going to start going up and up - I hope!!! No - I know I can do it - with just a little perseverance and determination and planning. I think planning is a big part of it - had not realized that until I became a part of the SparkPeople.
I have the day off today and need to spend some time with my daughter - her family is having some difficult days right now. Her Father-in-law is in the hospital with lung cancer. Yesterday he started coughing up blood. He is stable now - but the prognosis is not good. And, her ex-husband's Mother is in the hospital with a collapsed lung. She is the Grand-mother of Kathi's 2 older children. (Oh my, in the age of easy divorce, how mixed up our families become!! --) Also, have a long list of To-Dos.
For extra steps today, I am going to walk down to Penneys and see if I can find some new shoes. I am wearing a couple of pairs of canvas shoes right now that I ordered from Land's End - but need something a little more dressy for Sundays. Shopping in this town can be so frustrating - there is Penneys and WalMart!! Not much to chose from. Most people here go to Walla Walla or Tri-Cities to shop. Guess that is my next option.
Well, enough rambling for today. And, thank you, to anyone who takes the time to read thru all of this!!
God bless all!!
