So Blessed Am I!

Saturday, June 18, 2011

Yesterday at VBS Karen brought me a bouquet of carnations - white and pink. What a surprise! Mom's favorite. Then in the evening I received an email from Tom with a picture of an iris - white on the top with a purple bottom. My favorite!

Now, how blessed is that???!!!


Need to Take a New Look at Goals

Wednesday, June 08, 2011

Something is wrong!! I have been on SparkPeople for almost 2 years! And, still have not lost any weight.
I am exercising more tho - and am more conscious about what I eat. However, my arthritis is worse - so am hurting more and moving slower. But, somehow this year am feeling much better about life!! Am closer to my daughter here in Pendleton and have renewed a lost relationship with a son. Still have more on my Seven for 2011 list. Need to get that out and reevaluate again.


Up Too Late

Thursday, June 02, 2011

My days have been quite busy - again. And, I am running late this morning. Stayed up too late last night and then slept and extra 30 minutes this morning. I am really a morning person - and when I do not have at least a couple hours of "my time" in the morning seems like my day just does not go right.
So, we will see how today goes?!?!?

Am trying to get our little apartment back in order after the neighbor's apartment flooded last week. I don't think i blogged about that. Her hot water burst when she went to the club - 2-3 inches of water in the whole place. Now they are in the process of replacing the carpets. They placed an emergency cutoff valve for our apartment and the one upstairs just under the floor in our coat closet - so now I cannot put everything back like it was. Now am in the process of rearranging. Our apartment is really small - so it is taking some maneuvering. But, I am gradually getting things in place. Just hope I can finish up this weekend.

At church we are planning Vacation Bible School in a couple of weeks - will be so much fun. We have quite a few 3 - 7 year old now and lots of fun stories and activities are being planned. My daughter will be doing the crafts and she is so excited!

Well, time to get ready for work.


God's Plans are Always Better Than Mine!

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Well, last night did not go at all like I had thought it would. God had a better plan!! Met Greg at WalMart and we looked for the movie "Patton" - not there. So then to Rite Aid and then to BiMart. So picked up "Megaman" and "Green Hornet" for Geoff. Sunday was his birthday. (He is the son that lives with me). Then for dinner Greg suggested that we pick up something and bring dinner and the movies here for Geoff. The 2 boys (well, they are supposed to be men, now) have not ever gotten along very well. It was last fall that they - again- had a parting of the ways.

Anyway, when we arrived Geoff was a little hesitant, but when he saw the pizza and the gifts he warmed up some. By the time I went to bed they were talking about a computer game they had started writing a couple of years ago. Not sure how their evening went - but I did hear them talking some.

And, a good thing - I racked up more steps during our shopping. Love to go to WalMart just to add more steps. emoticon emoticon emoticon


A Rough Day

Monday, May 30, 2011

Am having a rough day! Dreamed last night - almost nightmares. Then woke stressed and with a headache. Have tried to do some things today, but have not accomplished much. Did a couple loads of wash and have sorted thru a couple of boxes of material that have collected. Got rid of some. Also, went thru old VCR tapes and discarded a few. Will get rid of more when my son goes thru them.

Monday is when I see Greg - for dinner. Will have him meet me at WalMart to pick up a few things and then we will decide where to go for dinner. Always so refreshing to spend some time with him.

It is sunny and warm here today. Wanted to put out a few more plants - may pick up a couple this evening. Have a couple of pots in front that need a face lift.

Tomorrow will be a better day!!
