On a whim, I stopped at a store and found a wonderful present for both my girls. Even had a coupon for it! Now to pull out what I've bought and take stock.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I'm still not feeling well and have no energy today. So I've been working on quiet projects when I can.

A dreary, rainy Monday is upon me. I'm looking for motivation to finish spring cleaning, but it sure is hiding well.

Memorial Day weekend: the first of the summer and the weather is wonderful. We spent a lot of time outside with family and had a blast.

I got a three day a week - 16 hours - babysitting a 4 and a 2 year old boys. It my first week. Love the boys. Buy, are they different from girls. But, not as much as I expected them to be. Maybe it's because my girls always thought they could do everything. Who would they get that idea from???

I used to be a lot more organized. Not sure when I got out of the habit. The holidays are fast approaching and I always like to be prepared - I don't want to feel rushed through them. I want to enjoy them. So, I will start planning and organizing today. I am hoping to get back into my organizational habits.

I took my car to another place to get another opinion. The guy couldn't find anything wrong with it. Guess who's not going back to the first car shop?

I'll be working a back-to-school picnic that my church, a few other churches and the Jaycees are putting on tonight. Hoping it won't last too long - I want to come home and watch the baseball game.

I took my car in to get the oil changed. They found two more things wrong with it, one of which was a fix ASAP. My $20 oil change ran me $156.11! Now I have to come up with another $250 to get the other thing fixed.

I have one week before my girls come in for a visit. I have been putting off cleaning the condo because I didn't want to have to do some things twice. Tomorrow and Thursday I have commitments all day. So, that means that I have to get busy starting today. I'd also like to get some extra exercising in as I have picked up a couple pounds and would love to have them off this week.

G'mornin', Steven! (and everybody else, too)...

I'm looking forward to your getting new glasses, too! Everything will look crystal-clear once again, and being online won't be a strain for you, either - emoticon

So glad all the cooking and shopping and such are done. I made:

One meatball lasagna (well, it had more than "one meatball" in it, emoticon
One Italian sausage lasagna
Two loaves of Italian bread, one plain and one parmesan/garlic (cheated and bought
both at Trader Joe's emoticon )
One beautiful (if I do say so m'self) pasta salad, which included tricolor cheese tortellini,
homemade fettucine (cut short so that people wouldn't have to wind it around their
forks), steamed fresh broccoli; raw snow peas, cherry tomatoes, and baby
portabella mushrooms); and tiny homemade Italian sausage balls, plus some
Parmigiano Reggiano and homemade Italian dressing with chopped spring
onions in it and fresh parsley.
One "Oreo 'lasagna'", consisting of a base of crushed Oreos and a bit of melted butter, then
a layer of cream cheese mixed with sugar and Cool Whip, then one of chocolate
pudding, and then some plain Cool Whip. Over top were sprinkled a generous amount
of mini chocolate chips.

I've got some physical conditions which made it necessary for me to pace myself over a week with all of this "stuff," and this ol' gal is POOPED today! I've got lots of rest on the agenda.

As Bugs Bunny said, "That's all, folks!"

"If you're going through hell, keep going."

That's terrific, Steven! You always have such a positive, proactive outlook and approach to life - emoticon

I've got a lot on my figurative plate this week. I've got to make two lasagnas - and I make 'em from scratch, with my own sauce and homemade noodles, etc. - and do a lot of baking. I feel kinda sleepy just contemplating all this stuff, but once I'm engaged in doing it, I actually enjoy it.

I had a late night last night and had to be at the hospital for a test at 6 am this morning. I got up at five, sat on the couch with my coffee and promptly dozed back off until 5:45. I was about 15 minutes late - I'm glad they still took me. The MRI took forever. It was hard to lay still. I then stopped at the ATM to make a deposit and got home just as it started snowing. The weather man is predicting 2-3 inches and I hate driving in the snow. So, I am going to spend the day cleaning house and trying to organize some paperwork that I've been avoiding for awhile.

I've got an afternoon filled with doctor appointments. Hoping they don't last long and that I make it to all of them okay. I'm spending the morning helping Mom with her hair. Tonight I will be working on an afghan for a baby shower present.

I have an appointment with a new therapist that hasn't impressed me so far. I'm hoping today will go better than the first two appointments. Meanwhile, I am going to the library to get out some self-help books to see what I can l;earn and do for myself.

im trying to relax a little today, the day started with rain but the sun is coming back out now...im a little down ..its been a week since the shooting at the school in newton and it just breaks my heart 26 innocent lives lost.... it was on the radio this morning we all took a moment of silence at my job and listened to the radio station sounding bells 26 times naming each victim, this was so heart wrecking. My prayers are with these families. may god help heal their hearts. i will keep praying for peace.

as for my fitness today i had a late breakfast, wasnt really hungry it was oatmeal and of course my cup of coffee. I have a lunch date with hubby today, thats something to look forward to. spending a little time alone without kids :) will try to do alittle yoga tonight. i did 8 minutes of kick boxing last night and it felt great! how is everyone else doing?

maintaining my inner peace is my goal, a healthy lifestyle is my mission!

I've got another medical test today. I don't know if they will be able to give me any definite answers to my problem, but I am hoping. I have a Christmas party/Avon meeting to go to tonight. Got lots of phone calls and projects to complete in between. Let's see how much I actually accomplish.

the weather has been the same way here too. however I've spent most of my time this weekend relaxing at home watching movies and decorating my home. got most of my Christmas shopping done yesterday so my stress is gone for now.I've been practicing mindful thinking and it has helped with my worrying. when your mind is busy focusing on whats going on that moment it no longer has time to worry. I got in some cardio Kickboxing this morning followed by a rejuvenating shower and hair treatment .taking that time to focus on myself really made me feel better. I feel so good. I recommend it to everyone take a couple hours to focus on you.

maintaining my inner peace is my goal, a healthy lifestyle is my mission!

The weather has been damp and cold all week. My back has been aching me the whole time. I can't wait until I can come up with the co-payment so I can go to therapy, but have no idea when that will be. Will make some phone calls on Monday to see what I can do on that.

So, meanwhile I am kinda trying to take it easy. A half a pain pill was in order yesterday and I am hoping to avoid that today.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

today is going to be a long day of work, hearing clients complaints, phone ringing off the hook, reports and computer softwares to update...sometimes i just want to quit! this job really stresses me out! i am trying my best to do my mindfull thinking and deep breathing when am faced with a stressfull client. but i can help but count the hours till im out of here. im looking forward to getting home have dinner with my family, do a little yoga and just relax without anyone telling me to do anything.

maintaining my inner peace is my goal, a healthy lifestyle is my mission!

My best laid plans of yesterday didn't happen. So, my list of things to do got pushed back until today. I will be busy and am anxious to see how much I can actually get done today.

Today is the 26th anniversary of my dad passing. I am always reflective on this day. I am glad I have so many wonderful memories of him. I always wish that he was still here to hug and talk to.

I always find that it takes me a week to two weeks to get used to the time change. I really hate that it gets dark so early now. I can't wait for December 21, because I know that after that, the days will start getting longer again.

Recovery from a bad cold, so time to clean germy sheets and clothes. Clorox the kitchen and get all the dishes done. Vacuum and dust to remove all the germ areas, so I don't reinfect myself or some one else gets infected. So, tired but moving forward

It's a good day to stay inside today and finish up the house work that I didn't get done during the week since it's a rainy, cold day. I am a firm believer that when people turn out the lights, house work and laundry reproduce.

After my blog last night about getting angry about depression, I had to get away from the computer and my solitude and went to a friends house where we talked, and ATE... and guess what I lost 3 pound (it's the same 3 pounds I've already lost) and I hope it stays off this time. But we had a blast and I was able to relax and enjoy my day today. I took a nap (a no no for me and my desire to sleep 8 hours a night) but I don't think sleep will elude me tonight. I am a bit exhausted after releasing such a tidal wave of emotions.

be authentically you...

It's been a quiet Sunday. I went to church and stopped at the grocery store on the way home to pick up a few things. I wrote out some bills and took the dog for a walk. Now it's time to watch a baseball playoff game. It's windy and rainy and a good day to stay inside.

I'm tried to get myself motivated to get in the car and go to the Y. I did myself workout on the elliptical machine yesterday. I sweated a lot. It was a great workout burning twice as many calories as the stationary bike. The pool is packed on Saturday morning so if I swim today it has to be the afternoon. I slept well. I have a little morning stiffness which is cutting down my motivation to move.

Well, today got started off on the right foot and I went to exercise and just couldn't stop. I was feeling powerful and had a lot of stress to work out of my body. My back has been hurting, but the work out was not stressing my back so I just kept going until I was just tired enough to be able to go to my car and drive home. I remembered I was out of yogurt so I went to the store and my brand was 10 for 10 dollars, so I am now restocked for the next week, unless I go on some weird yogurt binge (it's been known to happen)...
I know I need to eat something with some protein in it before too long but can't quite figure out what it is I am hungry for. Not really anything but need to eat anyway. Perhaps it's time for a good tuna salad with cottage cheese.

I am all de-stressed and even the stressful things aren't stressing me out ... good sign. Perhaps I just have to go crazy in the gym everyday so that I can feel this way for the rest of the day every day.
Here's to good days of not feeling the anxiety or letting it get us down!!!

be authentically you...

I got an early start by having an 8:30 eye doctor appointment. I went shopping and to the bank afterwards. Now I'm working on laundry and will do some housework. Then to do some walking. I've got a church meeting tonight to go to.

Relaxation has come, along with a cold and stomach virus (which has run it's course-finally), but the cold remains. I can deal with that and a pound lost (before the virus).
So... with my cat feeling better, even playing tonight, and me all exercised out and letting my body heal ... the anxiety seems to have been flushed from me yet again.
I want a day of no stress and no anxiety. I would enjoy that more than anything else I can think of right now. So tomorrow that is what I am setting my sights on.

I hope you all are finding ways of comfort from your anxiety and perhaps a small vacation from it, as I am planning on tomorrow.

it's been a very stressful month for me.... starting right at Labor Day weekend and has (I pray) come to an end in the last few days. I have a VERY difficult time getting myself to go to bed, to shutting down and being able to relax and go to bed. I will fall asleep on the couch if I am watching tv. But if I "prepare" to go to bed, it seems like the world is coming to an end... or might while I am asleep.
I have spent the last 48 hours dealing with a major melt down that I was helped out of by a very close friend who knows me very well. It took several hours and was the culmination of all my fears and worries over the past month.
I hate that I have trouble going to bed at night. I can't deal with the anxiety of preparing for bed so I avoid it and end up falling asleep after 2-4 days of no sleep at the strangest times and also in the strangest positions, I have fallen asleep leaning against the counter at my fathers house one evening. My family was around, it was a birthday party for a sibling. They were talking to me but I didn't respond, my sister came over and took my hand and walked me (still asleep) into the guest bedroom and she basically put me to bed. I woke up the next morning not knowing where I was (I had never stayed overnight) at my fathers house. I was horrified. It took me a long time before I went anywhere when I was the least bit tired.

The last two days without sleep I have managed to work out both days, run errands, plan my menus for the next two weeks and drive 30 minutes to see a doctor and drive home. I sat down at the desk and woke up an hour ago after sleeping for about about 3 hours. NOW I feel revived and I am ready for another day. ;(

The company I interviewed with wants to hire me, but is waiting on the drug test. I've never had one take so long. I've been on pins and needles because I know that the job I have now is ending this week. I've been trying to stay mindlessly busy today waiting.
