Feeling productive. I did a grocery run at Costco early enough that the lines weren't horrendous. Returned a new book I gave up on--just not holding my interest--& picked up a couple items on hold at the library. Did the big clean project of the bathroom fan (described in the Success thread). Took a nap and did multiple workouts through the day. Completed a number of timer sessions cleaning and sorting through my from work tub. Enjoying the final feature on the 10th and final disc of Season One of Star Trek (The Original Series or TOS). It's a 2-hour 40th anniversary special highlighting the months of preparation for a giant Christie's auction of 1000 lots of Trek costumes, props, & sets. Amazing!

Blessed Be, Amanda

Oh, I hate it when my water bottles leak! It usually happens in my work lunch bag; I've learned to keep water bottles away from books and mail! Hoping the new routines get established with ease.

Kind cool you and Brenna will both be getting glasses together--and that Bug can get used to them well before school starts up again.

We've a couple of nice days here in the Seattle area. Today didn't get as chilly inside from the A/C, but I made sure to bring a sweater in case I needed it in the building. I've also lucked out finding shady parking spaces--one of my great pleasures, since I *really* don't like getting into a hot car!

Work was challenging with 4 people out--2 planned, 2 not--with supervisor in Seattle. Scheduling breaks and lunches took some doing. Thankfully the weather and the holiday kept the customer numbers manageable. Did some cleaning and sorting timer sessions this evening plus a nice 11-minute low-impact interval workout by Jessica Smith. Looking forward to a productive weekend, with a sister visit in the middle. Have a great Saturday, all!

Blessed Be, Amanda

Eva, I'm working on the new routine. I always have a yogurt in the morning, so I'm trying to attach meds to yogurt. That hardest is around my menses when I become a total flake. I can't concentrate to save my life. Most people get unbearable cramps, I just lose my ability to focus.

I love the Percy Jackson books. They make me happy inside. Riordan is a solid author.

I have always struggled working out at home. I allow myself to be interrupted by a million things. I find it easier to just get my cardio in at the gym. I do my yoga at home and at work in my office during breaks. I do basic calisthenics in my room with only my cat to create distraction, but I struggle with the cardio at home. Between 2 roommates with different sleep schedules than mine, a dog who is so needy it hurts, and my loud, busy-body cat, I barely have room to move in the house, let alone exercise. I've tried some more intense yoga stuff and I have been knocked over by the dog trying to be pet or the dog will lick my face. I hate having my face licked.

I decided that I'm going to go in after work. I have to drive to my friend's house again tonight, but the Puppos can last an extra 45 minutes so I can get my sweat on. I'll even take them for a walk when I get there. :D

Made it to work a bit early and I'm going to use my time productively and work on paperwork - you know, after I Spark for a while.

Renee: is it possible to make an alternate workout routine for days you can't make it to the gym?I am not a gym person so I work out at home. I have hand weights, a fitness ball and an elliptical/bike combo thing I like to call "the critter." Plus Yoga mats and DVDS and plenty of streaming of videos.

Besides brushing your teeth what do you do in the morning? Did anything take the place of coffee?

Amanda, Brenna did get a package in from you and it's in her "Too Read" Pile. I believe she plans to take a break from Percy Jackson's adventures and read it next. She had a good giggle at the title. She's writing a thank you note today (She forgot it yesterday) and has something to put in it for you.

We went to the eye doctor yesterday afternoon. Bug is slightly near sited and has to have glasses for seeing the board at school. She didn't have any problems this year, but I expect it'll make thing easier next year. Dr. Brewer said that since we caught it early it might can be corrected with lenses in a couple of years. I'm not surprised. Everyone on both sides of the family has vision problems. Mine started at her age. That's why I took her in. The good thing is, she won't need them all the time, and she'll have the summer to get use to them. My prescription changed slightly, so new glasses for me too. We pick them up next week.

Amanda, I had a great routine down for 10 years. While my coffee was brewing, I took meds and brushed my teeth. I stopped drinking coffee and while I'm still brushing my teeth, I'm struggling sometimes to remember my meds. I'll figure out a new routine at some point, just not this week!!

I'm super glad you got your coffees. I remember how important my coffees were to me when I still drank coffee. Now, it's just a rare treat from Starbucks. I found that a sugar free cinnamon almondmilk macchiato is only about 100 calories. I can handle that and it's delicious!! Of course, it takes me 2 days to drink a venti now because I'm not used to the caffeine.

I'm very annoyed with myself and have to resolve the feeling in my body. My workout clothes are SOAKED. I left my waterbottle not entirely closed in my bag. It soaked the clothes through. I got up 30 minutes early so I can make it to the gym before I had to get to work at 930. That time is disappearing in the dryer. I feel like I've had a lot of excuses this week about making my workout, but at least my heel is feeling pretty good. Perhaps this is the Great Mother's way of telling me to cool it and let me heel get a bit better.

Renee or Rene? 1 'e' or 2? I'm probably picturing the Deep Space 9 opening credits and Mr. Auberjonois (sp?) as Odo. Trying to get routines down is something I really work at. I take my am and pm supplements with meals, so morning ones with my nuked frozen lunch at work. (Yeah, I have protein, veggies and a starch for breakfast, so it sticks with me--no cereal, toast or sweet rolls for me.) That usually happens in the first hour, from 8:30 to 9:30. PM meds go with dinner, but that can be anywhere between 6 and 10!

That is a great approach for a teacher, Eva! Offering a positive reward that inspires good behavior without encouraging unhealthy habits is awesome! Has a certain book arrived yet? It was one of my first successes with that first class of largely rowdy 5th graders. I would read it aloud after lunch and they would draw. And I fell in love with Bruce Coville's wacky imagination.

Good but tiring day at work. I did a couple timer sessions when I got home, so feeling a little bit ahead of things. Oh, and I was disconcerted yesterday when I hurried home to get to the management office before 6 to find it closed a few minutes early. I had been hoping a package (my order of flavored coffee) had been delivered. When I tracked the order it reported delivery the day before at the office and signed by Sallie. Since such a person does not work at the office for my complex, I worried that it may have been misdelivered. I left a worried message on the office voice mail, and they kindly called me at work to say yes, it was there. I even got a later call saying they would put it inside the door if I wanted, since it's sometimes an effort to get to them before they close. I thanked them very enthusiastically, and sure enough, there they were!

Blessed Be, Amanda

Amanda, that dish does sound amazing. I love Indian food, but with all the coconut milk, it tends to get rich. I also love spicy, so it's really just awesome. I also admire your continued work on the work space.

Eva, yeah, I ended up getting over it. What can I do? I think that teacher is wonderful. Rewards are awesome, especially non-sweet ones.

My workout today didn't happen as well. I woke up fighting a bug and menstrual cramps. I decided that a long morning with tea and yoga (at least that's exercise) was needed instead of a blast on the gym machines. When I went to take my morning medications, a variety of vitamins, herbal supplements, and my psych meds, I realised I hadn't taken them in a few days. I'm normally pretty spacey just before menstruation, but it's been abnormally prevalent. Lightbulb! I've been taking my night meds just fine, but the darn morning ones were elusive.

I have to go to the board of mental health today to look at group curricula. I'm adding a group Monday nights when the agency starts Monday night hours in June. I normally hate going to the board, because the former Child/Adolescent Coordinator was amazing, brilliant, and very intimidating. She's now the associate director. I am friendly with the new one, which makes having to make small talk much easier.

I hope Thursday is successful for all!!!

Renee, sometimes you have to shrug and go on. My shopping cart tends to look like a mad science experiment LOL.

If it makes you feel better, I rarely may "normal" work outs in the summer months. It usually becomes "we time" and I end up doing Kid's Zumba or some such on a kids "indoor recess" program. I don't mind altering if my kiddo is with me.

Amanda that is Brenna's homeroom teacher, Mrs. Carla. She's a wonderful woman. She gives out praise by the buckets instead of candy and rewards big time with free time. As in lunch in the classroom with a movie on Friday if the kids used good judgement when it came to behavior. If you used bad judgement multiple times during the week, you had to go eat lunch in the cafeteria. By the end of the year every kid was having lunch in the classroom on Friday. I so prefer this to a teacher giving out sweet treats 15 times per day.

Your kitchen sink dish sounds wonderful! Jim and I refrain from Indian restaurants because of peanuts. I really should learn to make more of it from scratch. I have an interest in African cuisine as well.

Any suggestions on an "Around the World" cook book?

Eva, is that Bug's teacher in the photo? I'm sure she totally appreciated your note. Acknowledgement from parents was a rare gift for which I was always grateful.
emoticon
Sorry you missed your workout today, Rene, but how thoughtful of you to plan for a celebration! emoticon
Did some important revision of procedures and retention guidelines based on updates from Central Office, and saved the information to a shared drive (planning for my eventual exit).
emoticon
At home, cooked up a kitchen sink version of an Indian dish. I started with a box of Trader Joe's frozen Vegetable Biryani w/ Vegetable Dumplings, a 2-person side dish. I started sliced celery & diced peppers sauteing, added mushrooms & spinach, then diced tomatoes, garlic, a little turkey sausage and vegetable broth. Tossed in the partially nuked biryani, stirred, heated, oh added sliced almonds and a bit of shredded coconut. Then topped with plain yogurt (which cooled some of the spiciness). Delish!
emoticon
Took a break after dinner from my current Star Trek episode to prep tomorrow's lunch salad extras to add to a Costco salad. After some Sparking, I'll go back and finish one of my favorites from the first season of TOS, This Side of Paradise with Jill Ireland and a happy, in love Spock. Sigh!

Blessed Be, Amanda

Eva, you have every right to preen like a peacock with an amazing daughter. I think your take on strength and beauty is right on. I wish more parents would give that message. It would make it so much more comfortable for kids when they grow up and realize that everyone is unique.

I never made it out the door for a workout today. I realized that I had to buy snacks for a graduation party today and make up the bingo cards for it. Yikes. So, off to the store I went. I felt so awkward because I bought some low sodium turkey breast and low fat sharp cheddar for lunch roll ups for me. Then, 5 boxes of zebra stripe snack cakes, 2 containers of chocolate chunk cookies, and a gallon of 2% milk. I just shrugged. I mean, what can I do if the kiddo graduating my therapy group has a sweet tooth the size of Alaska?

Renee, I hate to give a spoiler alert but I'm kind of a preening peacock when it comes to my kiddo. You can bet I'll share ! emoticon One of my healthy goals is to teach her to make good choices for herself. I've taken to teaching her that kindness, intelligence, and strength are what makes beauty.

I'm really the odd mom out around here, but that's what makes me "cool" among the kids. They are 9. It might wear off but I hope not!

Popcorn. I love the stuff. I'm normally a kettle corn fanatic, but I've learned that if you sprinkle cinnamon and a little unsweeteend cocoa powder on the stuff when you first get it out of the popper it hits the taste buds that call for the kettle corn. (we have an air popper, an oil popper, and of course the ever popular microwave)

Amanda, How awesome you are gaining another skill! Aside from more work it will at least look nice on your resume when you find a position you want to apply for.

No More School Alarms for the Year!

Brenna received the superintendent's list award for all A's this year and she had the top science average in her class. I'm raising a smart cookie!

She said her goal was to make it a 3 in a row streak on the science average. She had top science average last year too. I told her I thought that was an excellent goal.



I sent the teacher a small gift and a thank you note for her hard work this year. The teacher thanked me for the note yesterday. Apparently a simple note, thanking teachers for just being kind and recognizing a job well done means a lot as the kids age. Perhaps because parents expect it rather than respect it. I don't know. But I know I'm glad I took the time.

Amanda, that decluttering is amazing. It's such a struggle to bring things down to a manageable size that can be moved. Do you think it'll get easier to declutter at home when you've finished at work?

I go to Planet Fitness. I generally use the elliptical and some of the weight machines every time I go. I'm working up to being able to run on the treadmill, but an heel strain is keeping me in low to no impact exercises

I gave up my last gym membership due to the expense, but I've been a member of various health clubs in different cities where I've lived. What all do you enjoy doing at yours?

I'm actually making more progress decluttering at work than at home. We've been warned the construction to revamp & expand the front counter, as well as move and shrink our cubicles could begin any time and we'll have to be ready to pack everything immediately. I've been spending time most every day after my shift to purge through old files accumulated over 10 years. I brought home some personal stuff on Friday, but haven't sorted that yet to take back the mail tub I filled with boxes of tea, bags, plastic utensils, books. I still have some personal stuff, and will continue reducing a little each day.

I had my first training session with the Collections unit lead. I had thought it was just an exploratory, learn about it sort of meeting, but I've been approved to actually take on a few small balance accounts to work on, so the training covered phone calls--making and logging them, and looking up account information. I already can do a fair amount of it, but I was introduced to new screens and data that will be very useful. It's exciting! I'll just need to coordinate with my supervisor to have a little dedicated time to work on them.

Blessed Be, Amanda

Amanda, I have a sweet tooth. However, I've found over the last 2 months that it can be calmed with some Artic Zero or Halo Top ice cream. Who woulda thought that there would be "diet ice cream" with increased fiber and protein? LOL.

Today will be my first day back at the gym since house sitting. My heel is happy with the rest and the tension was released a bit from the massage on Sunday. I'm excited.

Eva, that's cool that y'all play games. I grew up playing them a lot, and my sister and I still enjoy them greatly.

Renee, desserts I can usually take or leave, but chips, popcorn, nuts & seed--those are my vices! It can be hard for me to stop once I start.

Temps jumped to over 80 today. I had to drag the big stand-up fan out of the storage closet and ran it for several hours bringing in cool air this evening.

Wishing all my fellow goddesses a wonderful week!

Blessed Be, Amanda

Eva, That sounds like a great day with the kiddo. Awards and lunch! I hope the summer is full of special memories. You'll have to share your adventures. I adore thrift store shopping, but feel very discouraged frequently because it's hard to find stuff I like in my size. That'll change soon enough. ;)

Taking it easy is really important.

Amanda, Kali and Kader are my dear friend's puppos. I house sit for her frequently and they are part of the package. Thank you regarding my baby. She knows she's beautiful. LOL. I'm definitely more of a cat person. They don't wake you up at 5am and need to go outside. If they do, you hug them and they either run or curl up and purr.

Lately, I've been obsessed with popcorn. I never realized that it really wasn't that healthy unless you're smart about it. I knew the super extra buttery type wasn't good, but not the regular butter type. Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks. I found some low fat stuff (doesn't have much butter at all). I put black pepper and garlic powder on it and yummy!! If I wanted, I could eat the whole bag for 150 calories. Of course, I have never been able to eat a whole bag, so it's even less!!

I hope everyone's Monday is great!

Rlanto, Awww Your girl Amber is beautiful! I'm a cat lady. At current I have 4 house cats and I feed what ever shows up on my porch. Last count was 3 adult cats, 2 raccoons, and an opossum.

I think your shopping sounded like a bargain. We shop sales and thrift stores. Brenna, my daughter, says it's like treasure hunting!

Your Apothecary sounds really interesting. Closest one to me is more than 2 hours away.

Amanda, It sounds like you are making positive financial changes and I'm glad you were honest with Tresa.

On transferring pictures, the easy way, send the picture to your email via a text message. Instead of a contact number or name, just type in your email address. You'll add the picture as an attachment. (probably looks like a little paper clip) When you open the email on your computer you'll click to download the picture to your hard drive. Then you can do whatever you want with it.

I'm feeling better. I took it pretty easy over the weekend. the rain helped with that emoticon The good news is, the summer begins after tomorrow's awards day. So mostly I get to hang out with Bug and not be the mom on duty for 19 other kids. I plan on bringing Bug home after the awards ceremony. Well taking her out to lunch. Jim, my husband, is off work for the occasion so I thought it might be a nice treat for all of us!

Yesterday I taught my pair how to play Yahtzee. I thought Brenna had played at school, but apparently it's one die short. Once simply can not Yahtzee with 4 dice. Jim had never played (I was shocked). We all agree that Clue is still the family favorite!

Ooh, emoticon for the emoticon of your furbabies emoticon Do the niece & nephew emoticon belong to the roommates? One of these days I'll get a photo of my Dora posted emoticon I wished I had gotten one of her yesterday all rolled up in the throw rug like a flauta. I don't know how she does it; she doesn't just burrow underneath, but actually rolls it around herself!

Thanks for the acknowledgement and encouragement, too! emoticon emoticon

Amanda, I think the way you're handling change is amazing. Such a good attitude. I uploaded pictures of my furbaby, Amber, and my furniece and furnephew, Kali and Kader (respectively). Kader is the "little one" who is always into everything. He's barely a year old.

Today's plan is to head home for a bit to do the meal prep for the week. Before that, I have a massage scheduled. It's my last one in the package I bought. I'm thinking I might buy the package again next month. I like getting massages monthly. So, today's stones are king cobra jasper for relaxation and amazonite for muscles. I don't have either with me, so I might stop at home to bring them along.

Sounds like you did some positive spending--great deals on clothes, and meaningful & spiritually nourishing purchases at the Apothecary. As my financial planner says, you work hard for your money, so it's right to spend it the way you want to.

I just popped over to your page to see if there were any pix of your furbabies, but didn't see any. I'm not very adept at transferring pix from phone to computer, myself. Want to get better so I can share more visuals, but I always enjoy seeing more about the lives of my emoticon s.

Tresa thanked me for cluing her in, and commended me on being as self-aware as I am & monitoring how well I'm handling change. I really am excited by our process, and I enjoy playing with numbers. I just need/want to slowly and steadily build new habits and let it be okay to "do it badly" at the beginning.

It reminds me of a blog a emoticon wrote--the one that inspired me to try my kung fu class 5 years ago. She spoke of her grandson trying to teach her to roller skate, but she fell and gave it up. She regretted it later, and urged others to allow their early efforts to "be ugly," remembering that we get better with time and practice.

Blessed Be, Amanda

Amanda, it sounds like you're making good, steady progress. Slow and steady wins the race. Although, this isn't a race. Everyone gets overwhelmed a bit. I'll spare you the overwhelmed education I normally provide for my clients. It's one of my favorites along with self-care, sleep, and eating healthy.

The puppos are driving me bonkers. The little one has been particularly hyper this morning. It's been raining, although not this morning, so I haven't been able to take them for a walk. He's been carrying around his bedtime leash (it's a 3 foot leash to encourage him into his crate at night) and presenting it to me. He can't pick up his long walks leash, so I think this is the best he can do.

I spent WAY too much money at the Apothecary yesterday. There was a beautiful tumbled ruby in matrix that was singing my name when I came in. I could feel it. Tumbled ruby at my Apothecary is $1/gram. Yikes. It's worth it. It amplifies positive energy, increases generosity, and stabilise finances. I also bought a new piece of jet. My jet decided that it was done when I picked it up yesterday. I accidentally dropped it and it shattered. I knew it was tired, but I didn't realise it was that tired. I swept up the pieces and buried it in the backyard. I bought 2 large white sage smudge sticks to smudge my best friend's first house. Of course, a bunch of tea.

I made out at the other store. I think I ended up spending around $80 and got like 8 tanks, a few shirts, 2 dresses, 2 skirts, a pair of jeans, and a bra. I was smart and bought a lot of the tags that were on discount. I look forward to when they come to Cleveland because it's easier to get bras without searching for them in popups.

Now, back into saving mode.

emoticon take good care of yourself, Eva. It sounds like you may be overdoing. We want you to stay well & strong emoticon and happy emoticon

Rene (am I remembering that right?), your Apothecary sounds wonderful! I prefer doing without the pills emoticon though I'll take something if I'm really hurting. Hope you find some nice items at your warehouse--deals are emoticon

As I shared with Tresa when I sent my spending plan numbers I've gathered and calculated so far, I think I hit overwhelm yesterday. I really want to get better at the financial tracking, but it's still very new, and I keep discovering that how I've done things before doesn't lend itself to getting a clear picture on my spending. Then I've been struggling with a not-user-friendly messaging system trying to talk to various medical personnel & trying to get the appointments I want made (also found copays went up 50% (from $20 to $30), so not looking forward to possible multiple visits. And with uncertainty at work and many continuing issues there, the accumulated stress just got to me.

I'm trying to remember to take positive steps, but not to push myself too far or too fast. This isn't a race. I want to get things done, but I want to be happy, whole and healthy as I make changes, and maintain balance as best I can.

Blessed Be, Amanda

Wow! That is some serious self-care. I love that your job was flexible enough to let you come in a few hours late to take care of yourself.

Congratulations to your daughter for straight As. That's not easy at any age.

I'm off from work today. I am very thankful, too. Wednesday and Thursday were very stressful. I made it through with some self-care (yoga and sushi - ahahah) and the puppos didn't have to hold themselves much longer than normal because my last clients of the day were a no show or quick sessions.

My plans for today are mostly shopping, so I'll get my steps in that way. I do not like shopping. However, I'm going to 2 of my favorite stores: Spirit Apothecary and Discount Fashion Warehouse.

The Apothecary is amazing. The amount of tea and herbs is beautiful and the proprietor is brilliant with herbs. He can mix up teas for just all kinds of woes. I get their headache reliever and almost never have to take Advil or Tylenol because it's so effective. I also use moonease tea for my menstrual cramps. Miracles.

DFWH is a this gorgeous store that has all kinds of clothes that is a season or two out of date (as if I care) at rock bottom prices. Most of it is from Lane Bryant and Express because the corporate head quarters is in Columbus. Since dropping a few pounds, a lot of my work clothes that aren't leggings aren't fitting well and look unfortunate. I can generally get a few pairs of LB pants and a few tops for around $50 from them. I have $100 dollar budget (what I got paid for house sitting) and I'm hoping to get some other stuff, too.

Today's stones are hematite and jet (for financial stability).

I'm glad your getting rid of some old stuff in your cubical but I'm sorry to hear you'll have a sudden shift. Makes for a lot of confusion!

I'm glad you are feeling better. Sometimes we just have a bad day. But you turned it around and that's the important part.

I'll keep an eye on the mail! Bug is getting an award, but I'm not sure what all she'll be getting. I know she has straight A's for the year. And I'm not sure how they do the awards over here. I think the kids just stand up to be honest, but I'll be there snapping pictures no matter what.

I'm still tired. Field day was hard on my back. I'm taking today "off", meaning I won't be doing any heavy lifting. Allergies have got me in a funk as well. I need to make my appointment for an eye exam, just a check up, but I don't want to go while my allergies are a mess!

Be watching in a few days for a delivery for Bug!

Strange day. Woke up with a really bad headache--rare for me. Got into some dark, heavy thinking about work stuff, and felt so miserable I called in. But journaling, taking things slow, performing some desired, but put-off tasks had me feeling better. I made an appointment to donate blood (overdue), ate a good breakfast first, got there a bit late, but got tended to quickly. I passed the screening test (hemoglobin count?--I don't always make it), and was feeling better as I left. A bit tired, as is usual, but my mood had stabilized. (I don't really know why it dipped so sharply earlier.) Paid my Penney's bill at the mall on the way home, got ready for work, and made it in 3 hours late. Another person was out, so they were glad to have me, even at less than 100%.

Answered phones for the first hour (my assigned time), then went to the counter. My first customers were registering a new contractor license as a partnership. They didn't have a state business license yet, so we had to do that first. Language issues, lots of mistakes in filling out forms, do overs--it took over an hour and a half to get it finished. Good thing I had come in late, had a big breakfast and a snack in the donation center canteen--cuz I went to lunch well after 2! After lunch, had an easy electrical permit to process, then another new contractor. These folks had an infraction from 15 years ago that had gone to a collection agency. They had paid it off, but we needed someone in headquarters to update their old record so we could process the new registration. I was on hold for 16 minutes, but finally was able to get everything updated & the override in place so I could proceed with the application. That one took an hour and a quarter, and I took my afternoon break at 4:35! We close at 5, but I and two others work until 5:30. After my shift, I again put in some time purging old papers. There's going to be some major construction and reconfiguring of our lobby and counter, and everyone's cubicles will be moved & shrunk, so we've been warned to pare down what we have and get ready to move suddenly. I just keep chipping away at 10 years' worth of stuff!

Blessed Be, Amanda

I keep stones at the house and in the van but I usually don't have them on my person. But then most days I don't go anywhere. On vacation I tend to wear amethyst or clear quartz.

I'm still tired this morning. I slept but I was so tired I don't think I slept well. The kid played tug of war (won 3 out of 4), dodge ball (won 3 out of 4), and kickball (won 1 out of 3). They had lunch and an hour of bounce houses. I helped track and make sure no one's money, purses, hats, or sunglasses were left behind. So basically I mother hened all day. It was fun and not many parents came. The perk, if you were there your kid could leave 30 minutes early and it not count against their attendance. That meant my kiddo finished they day with a dip in her pool!

Most days I carry one or more crystals in my pockets, too.

No long posts tonight, 'cause it's gotten late, but I'll share this update: That extra sleep last night really helped. Got some good things done at work, including some continued cleaning after my shift. Oh, yesterday and today I cleared out several hundred work emails, just deleting groups of them. Of course there are still several thousand left, but it feels good to get rid of virtual clutter, too!

Paid a bill the day after it came in the mail, worked on my spending worksheet, printed emails for healthcare team to take to work to get that doctor appointment made (when I can see my work calendar), did a combo cardio/ST workout, and caught up tracking my Spring Fling activity minutes and steps. I've been making special efforts to boost steps, though I may not keep it up past the challenge.

Blessed Be, Amanda

Oh, field day. I hope you have fun with the kickball game!


Sleep is always good to get. I hope it was restful for you.

Wednesdays are my long days. I have a strange work schedule. I go in between 9 and 10 every day and start seeing clients at 11am. However, I normally don't schedule the 11am slot because I'm still not uncranky enough for a good session, even after working out in the morning. I'm just not a morning person. However, I do on Wednesdays and Fridays. I also have meetings and group therapy sessions I run on Wednesdays. I end the day with a late appointment at 730, which runs until 815. So, I try to take my rest days on Wednesdays just to give myself a few extra minutes in the morning.

However, today and tomorrow, I'm solid with clients. I'm also house and puppo sitting for a friend. She lives about 25 minutes southeast of me in the country. I work about 45 minutes northwest of my house. So, it makes for a long commute. I love house sitting for her because her puppos are great and her house is very peaceful. It's nice to get away from my roommates for a bit.

I just won't get to her house until about 930/10 tonight. I'm normally in bed asleep by then!! I took Friday off because I already didn't feel the commute. LOL.

So, please, send positive thoughts in my direction. I've already lit candles this morning and plan on carrying my hematite stones with me to help keep me focused on the day and not on the long commute tonight. I also have my amber bracelet on despite it clashing with my outfit to help with energy. I always feel better with my stones around me.

Rlanto, that's a lot of work. I can sympathize with the painting making your body sore. I painted the family room and one of the bathrooms last year. Even with all the extensions and everything it was a serious workout! I'm glad you're feeling better.

Amanda, I hope your appointment goes well and you get that PT referral.

Thank you about the profile pic! We took it on the boardwalk Sunday.

Yesterday we had the AC unit services for the summer. It helps make sure the unit can take the summer heat. The guy was rather impressed with our duct work. It's hanging so you can walk underneath. it prevents holes wearing in the lines. Apparently in the newer houses (mine is 11 years old) they are leaving the stuff lying on the attic floor. It'll look almost like a huge spider laying there.

Bug is always excited to get mail! Her teacher has been impressed with her book choices from home. The school library is closed so they are asked to bring something to read.
She's trying not to start anything new. She also has them reading a novel in class, like a book club. They discuss it at the end of the day. Anywho I got tickled yesterday. Mrs. Carla asked Brenna where she gets so many different books (apparently several kids keep bringing the same books because they only own a few). Bug answered, "Mostly at the Goodwill. My mom takes me. On half price day I can get 6 books for $3." I do buy new books as well, but now the teacher thinks I'm smart teaching Brenna to fill out her library with gently used books, or she thinks I'm super cheap for the same reason! She's a teacher so I'm betting it's the former!

I'm from Cleveland, OH. I just prefer the British way of spelling things. I think it's less - jarring. I've never been a fan of the letter "z," which is weird, but hey - we've all got our things. I've known my roommates my whole life. When I moved back to Ohio from Alabama, I needed a place to stay on the fly because the move was abrupt. So, I bunked down with them in their extra bedroom and 10 years later haven't left! It works out nicely because we known each other well enough that if we can't make rent for whatever reason a month, we help each other out. They also respect my spirituality, which is VERY important to me.

An agency wide challenge sounds like fun. I should mention doing one to our HR people and see who bites. Maybe even the "fun" committee that I seem to be default chair of can get in on a prize for the winner.

I hope everyone is having a good week!!

PS - You can just call me Renee.

Eva, love the new profile pic of the family! Glad you had a good time on Sunday. There might be a summer reading book traveling soon to Tennessee!

RLANTO, emoticon on the meal planning and all the house chores! I thought you might be in Britain or Canada, given spelling of a couple words, but the mention of Memorial Day sounds more like you are based in the US. How did you and your roommates come together? Sometimes I wonder about looking for another person to share expenses & household tasks with, but finding the right fit can be tricky.

An agency-wide fitness challenge started at work. I'll be doing extra tracking there, in addition to here on Spark. Got a reply back from my new doc whom I haven't seen; I'll be making an appointment so she can check me out before completing a PT referral. Worked more on my spending number crunching after work today, did a combo cardio & ST workout, now planning on a stretching routine before bed.

Blessed Be, Amanda

It sounds like some really great weekends happened! I'm glad to hear that people are feeling lifted by their weekends. Still finding my way around the forums and stuff. Things have changed in the 7 year absence from my last go at Spark.

I'm finally over the stomach bug that took me down last week. I was able to make it to the gym 2x over the weekend and again this morning. It felt good to be active. We finished painting the ceiling in my living room and are going to pull carpeting next weekend and paint the walls. Then, lay down the flooring Memorial Day Weekend. All that is left is the kitchen flooring. We aren't doing anything to the fixtures or cabinets. The house is so close to being finished, it almost hurts! Actually, my arms and back do hurt from painting the ceiling!

I've been doing meal prep for about 3 or 4 weeks now and it seems to work. My roommate does a lot of the yard work and is able to eat when she gets home without having to cook. I have healthy lunches and snacks. My other roommate just has to deal with whatever we make!! This week, I did all the meal prep yesterday for the week and I'm very satisfied with myself.

It sounds like you did have a nice weekend. Let's hope the week that follows is just as nice.

Jim and Bug took me to the Pinson Mounds for a picnic and hike for mother's day. It was wonderful!

This is Bug's last full week of school. I sure am ready to have my girl for the summer! We have plans for summer reading. library trips, swimming (we're opening the little pool in a couple weeks) and several science projects. We're both kind of excited!

Oh, I did email my doc this weekend, waiting to hear back.

It's been a good weekend, a balance of activities--yesterday the phone meeting w/ financial adviser, working on tracking for my spending plan & trying some new (to me) stability ball workouts on Spark TV, some cleaning. Today had lunch with my sister, catching up on her work doings, settling money (she just got the order for our community theater season tickets placed yesterday) & exchanging books. Then groceries, now laundry, and I just ordered 3# of coffee from www.flavoredcoffee.com/ : 1# each of my favorite flavors--Almond Toffee Crunch and Butterscotch Toffee Cream, plus 1/2# each of Decaf Pecan Pie and Pecan Praline which will be my next work coffee. Ahhh!

Nope, haven't made the appointment yet, but I keep getting life reminders that I need to!

Had a good massage, and learned that the therapist I like best is only working there 2 days a week, and seeing clients privately the rest of the time. The cost is the same, but it all goes to her, and she'll throw in the aromatherapy for free (instead of $10 more), and she comes to your home. I'm thinking that's what I may do from now on.

An interesting and productive day at work. Looking forward to tomorrow afternoon's phone meeting with Tresa!

Have a great weekend, Goddesses!

Blessed Be, Amanda

Apparently that sheep hasn't been bread for wool since the 1830's. The farm is trying to bring it back as a regular source of wool.

The picture of the girls at the bottom was taken when they were putting their seeds together. The crew has them put their seed in a baggie and thread yarn through it to make a necklace to up around their neck so they don't loose it before they get home.

Field trips are tiring but fun. I often have an extra kid or 2, the parents couldn't come, and they like Mrs. Eva because I pass on weird facts. I know they go home and share with their parents because the facts always come back to me when I see the parent. Like donkeys in a pasture being used to control snakes and coyotes, thus protecting the pack. That's why a cow pasture almost always has a couple of donkeys in the mix.

Amanda have you made an appointment to get your pt referral for your wrist and elbow?

Nancy what's going on up in your neck of the woods?

there's no school today for most of the county, so I'm sipping coffee in my jammies. That's a privilege for me. We're picking Chasity (oldest niece) up at 10 and then doing the shopping. If the rain moves out we'll go to the carnival and grab the annual fair food tonight. It's treat for us all. I have 8 alarms left for the school year. I'll be happy to get that extra 30 minutes sleep!

That is one wild-looking sheep! What are the kids doing at the tables in the bottom photo? I remember how tiring field trips are on a teacher--I imagine it's similar for dedicated parents!

I'm having a phone meeting with my financial planner on Saturday. She's wonderful, and specializes in helping women go beyond their limitations and fears around money. Here's her website: www.myfinancialdesign.com/ She first helps clients build some financial security, then aims higher to achieve larger financial goals.

I had a productive day at work, and purged a number of papers after work. Did a timer session and tried another workout that I had to stop over halfway through when I ran out of the ability and willingness to modify. So did one of Jessica Smith's much better, more recent routines that I like. I'll be going to bed soon. Looking forward to tomorrow's massage, and then working a shorter day.

Blessed Be, Amanda

I'm glad you figured out how to get your pedometer into active mode. I gave up wearing one. I keep bumping the things and losing them and the ones you wear on your arm don't work correctly on me. I drain batteries like a fiend. Watches stop running, it's that bad.

We saw blackberry vines and grape vines, we also saw the strawberry fields and where they grow broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage. The kids learned about the life cycle of a plant and the started germinating a purple hull pea plant.

We saw a 3 legged chicken but I didn't get a picture. Apparently that's what happens when a double yolked egg is fertilized and actually hatches. And we saw a Jacob's Sheep. He has 4 horns.











It was a pretty good trip!

Today I have hair cuts to do. I'm still pretty tired.

Potential drivers is a good option to have! Will there be farm pix? Curious what animals and plants they'll be seeing.

Yep, getting back to "normal" at my office. Solved a few problems--getting a notary booboo by a coworker that I missed when I registered a contractor fixed, and getting a wage claim check mailed certified to another office. Refunded some permits to CD accounts, which only the 2 sales auditors can do. Then the general phone calls, customers at the counter, and processing industrial insurance checks (we have this goofy special way of handling them, instead of just depositing them, and the job gets rotated each week to a different CSS), plus ordering mail supplies. Also catching up on emails from my day off and being out of the office, and putting in sick leave, and adding my appointment for Friday's massage to the Call Center Calendar (that way we can see who is already scheduled off).

Thought I broke my relatively new step counter (I've had it less than a month), because it stopped counting. But I found the instructions, and figured out how to get it out of suspended mode back to active mode. I'm really glad with our big Spring fitness challenge coming up!

Blessed Be, Amanda

I'll have to see if I can find the low impact HITT video that was sent to me. My friend has bad knees. She's 54 and pretty much blew all her joints out playing basketball and softball. She said this one was really easy on the joints.

I hope you like the bed variation of legs up the wall. I often do Yoga in bed if I'm sick or injured. Mostly if I'm sick. It promotes healing and milks the adrenal glands so you can feel better faster.

It sounds like you had a series of off events yesterday. I hope today is more normal for you.

I have 2 people riding with me to the farm this morning. I'm good with that. It means if something happens that makes me panic, I have a driver to take over.

Have fun at the farm! I'm going to have to try the headboard trick you mentioned in another thread, since I don't have wall space to scoot next to.

Being out yesterday really threw things off. I had reminders on my work calendar for Monday that I was working in a different office on Tuesday--but without being at work to be reminded, I showed up in Tukwila at my usual start time instead of hitting the road an hour earlier to drive up to Bellevue in the miserable 405 traffic. When 2 coworkers asked "Aren't you supposed to be in Bellevue today?" I was "Oh, ****!" emoticon And only took time to call the lead over there to apologize and say I was on my way, and to grab my breakfast out of the microwave, which I warmed up an hour later when I reached the other office. Had I not been in such a rush, I could have grabbed some contractor packets to work on, plus my notary stamp. Oh, well. The one new contractor I processed got notarized quickly by one of the other CSSs, so it didn't matter. And I had discovered an unused Starbucks gift card (from Xmas?) in my wallet over the weekend, so that paid for my lunchtime coffee drink across the street, since I didn't have coffee, cream, honey, mug, filter cone and filters, like at my home office.

Came across a new (to me) Jessica Smith workout--30 minutes of cardio and core. I toned down the intense HIIT, and didn't do the high-impact versions of moves, but the last 2 rounds really bothered my elbows, so I won't be trying it again. I want to bring up my wrist and elbow issues while exercising with my doctor, and maybe get a PT referral to help me figure out better what's safe and not, and how to substitute more and better.

Blessed Be, Amanda

We'll only be gone a couple of days. I'll be checking in. I just don't know how much.

I'm sorry that you are having issues with your wrist and elbow. This started when you fell over the winter, did it not? Please let me know how it's going.

How are you feeling today? still under the weather? We have crazy amounts of pollen in the air at the moment. I'm kinda hoping that it tappers down some. I know 3 people that had to go get a sinus shot over it.

I've taken to a new fitness routine of sorts. I'm doing cardio of choice. This is mostly a walk or dancing (like when I was a 20 something and not married but by myself not with my girlfriends. it gets the heart rate up) and then when I'm done I do legs up the wall pose to finish cooling down and stretching through the hips and thighs. You hold the pose up to 15 minutes. I'm up to 7 1/2. I saw the suggestion in runners world. it undoes the tightening of the muscles that happens when we sit all day and helps prevent runners from pulling hamstrings, but it's not intensive and helps protect against injury. I figure It's worth a shot to see it it helps keep my back and hips loose for the summer.

Tomorrow is 3rd grade field trip. It won't be long until she won't want mom tagging along, so to the farm I go :)

Glad nobody was hurt. Sounds like a mostly pleasant and productive day. I'll miss you when you're on vacation, but hope you all have a great time.

I felt out of balance Sunday evening, so decided I would be better off taking a sick day today. I've exercised, worked on financial tracking and made a massage appointment. I'll also be emailing my doctor to look into joint issues--wrist and elbow that give me the most problems during ST. I'll make a list and try to cover other more minor concerns, to make the most of the cost of a visit, since I haven't met my deductible.

Blessed Be, Amanda

I'm trying to be nice about our president, but he makes it so HARD. I've been calling and emailing people like crazy over this AHCA mess. May Paul Ryan and his cronies have to exist by their own bill.

It sounds like you are excited! I'll be out of pocket June 3-11th for the most part. We are taking a family week. Jim's on vacation. It'll be a partially working vacation.

I was moving my wooden picnic table yesterday to make room for my reclaimed table and chairs (my mom's neighbor was throwing it out) and the old wooden table collapsed. as in I'm surprised it held anyone up at all. So off to the water break it goes! I don't burn stuff. I have a pile of wood and trimmings that I allow to rot. I have a spot that is near the ditch so I call it the water break pile. Anyway. at least no one was hurt and the new table is on my deck :)

We cut the grass, and planted one last set of wild flower seeds, and let my little hippie water it all. :) Oh and I hand washed my van.

It was a busy Sunday :)

emoticon Love the "leisure" comments! And emoticon with your eye roll emoticon (OK, not quite). Even my rather conservative manager was agreeing with me on the climate change issue today, and commenting "yeah, right!" re presidential quotes to the contrary.

We had a Cinco de Mayo celebration at work emoticon with a few awesome dishes, plus large bowls of shoestring jicama and sliced cucumbers with a little lime--refreshing! And there were 2 styles of flan--oh my! I'm not a real big sweets person, but these were delightful! I had a small piece of each, and totally savored them! I did an extra lap around the block in light of all the extra calories, then had the salad I had taken for lunch for dinner tonight.
emoticon
After work I returned some library items to the new library--my first time since they closed the side street the old one sat on, that runs next to the new one. Luckily the street is only closed for a single block so it's possible to detour around and enter or leave 144th Street at a 4-way (now 3-way) stop. The main problem now is that while 144th (the street that is closed) meets Pacific Highway at a stoplight, the detour street 146th is at a simple stop, and 2 of the 4 cars I pulled behind wanted to cross 4 lanes instead of turning right--the direction I had to go to get to the library! I wasn't sure I would make it before closing at 6. I may want to go further down the connector street so I can turn at a light.
emoticon
I did several timer sessions cleaning, including catching up on dishes. I cooked up more of my purple veggie broth last night (color from the emoticon trimmings), so had my largest pan to wash. emoticon Looking forward to a productive weekend. And so happy 6-Pack (my group of gal pals) finally has a reservation for our long weekend in August. Now that we have a place and time nailed down, we can start making plans!

Blessed Be, Amanda

Nancy how sweet about the feral. She's lucky that you are her trusted human.

Amanda I'm sorry your energy is flagging. I think it's going around. When's the last time you had a blood panel?

I mention it because I told my doctor I was tired at my check up yesterday so now I get to go back and have all the chemistry checked (sigh). Thyroid too. I think it's I'm stressed and I might have low iron or b-12 (I tend to run low and I forgot to take the iron pill during my last cycle), but we will see. So I'm going this morning. She told me to do it at my leisure. All I could think is, at my leisure I'd rather be reading a book or watching a movie than getting my blood work done, thanks.


Our weather here is just weird. But climate change doesn't exist.....(insert eye roll here)

Weather's weird here, too, Nancy! Misty morning, hot and sunny midday, major thunderstorm in the afternoon & I just heard some more rumbles in the distance. Thunder and lightning are not as common here as when I lived in Texas.

Met with a program manager (one of the #2 managers in the region) for feedback from the last 2 interviews where he was on the panel. Actually some very helpful information, and quite encouraging. Finally we weren't slammed with customers. And our newest unit member, and one of my favorites, mentioned to me that I had a wage complaint waiting for me that she had seen yesterday. We are supposed to get them entered in 3 days, and unfortunately the person who assigns them to us never lets us know. Evidently she gave it to me sometime Tuesday, and I was in Bellevue Wednesday. She didn't peep a word today--day 3. I sent a thank you email to Ebonee for informing me (and cc'd the supe) at 4:23 pm, and completed the complaint entry & submitted it for review at 5:23. Sometimes when the counter and phones stay really busy or we are shorthanded, it can take days to get one finished, in and around everything else we are working on.

Really tired again. Not sure what all is going on--work or weather, and why my energy these last evenings has been so low. All I can do is try to get to bed at a decent hour and let me body rest & rejuvenate. Sweet dreams all!

Rain, rain, rain, rain, rain, rain. So far today all it's done is rain. And it is chilly, too. With my thermostat set on 64*, the furnace has kicked on.

One of my feral kitties, the runt of the litter (so she's very small although she's about 10 years old), whom I coaxed inside when it was very cold outside over the winter, decided she'd had enough, and when I opened the door to get food out, she ran in. Food and water were available inside, so I let her stay.

I'm glad you had a good day at the other office. I'm sorry the commute was such a monster but at least you had a nice, less stress work day.

Today is my yearly check up and Brenna's very last day of T cap testing. Then maybe we can have some stress free days for a while :)

I'm planning on taking Bug to the movies this weekend. I'm trying to decide on Birdsong Drive in or the local theater. It's family owned And tickets are literally $5 for the matinee or $7 for an evening show. We can go to concessions and get it all cheaper than I can get matinee tickets in Jackson.

I am Tired! (I almost fell asleep just now sitting on the couch w/ the emoticon in my lap!) It took me over an hour to get to Bellevue this morning, even though it's only ~ 16 miles away! I left just after 4, and traffic was already stop-and-go. The last few miles moved better, and it only took me ~ 55 minutes to get home--or it would have, but I stopped by the Southcenter library since my old one was closed when I placed those holds. The new library is where I'll request mine be sent from now on, especially w/ the one at the mall closing for ~ 6 weeks. They are expanding quite a bit, which will serve mall employees and other shoppers and library patrons well.

Work was steady, but not crazy at the office where I was helping out. They are hiring a couple new people, but are currently down to just 3 employees. I helped at the counter and on phones, but had no other responsibilities, which was sweet. It was raining lightly through most of my morning drive, but the sun came out as I was returning from a late morning break walk, and the temps rose all the way to the low 80s by the time I was driving home! So I'm knocking around in shorts for the first time this year. Got a few things done this evening, and will be headed gratefully to bed soon.

Hope this finds everyone in good health and spirits, planning a productive and either restful or invigorating weekend!

Blessed Be, Amanda

I don't see relaxing happening today or tomorrow and probably not Friday either. Today i deal with my MIL and a perm. apparently she can't lean into the shampoo bowl any more so I have to go give her one in her kitchen. I haven't rolled a perm up since I moved to Tn 13 years ago. We will see how it goes.

Tomorrow is the doctor and at least Friday will be routine with groceries. At least I hope it's routine!

I hope you have better day today. A break from the regular office might do you some good.

I think we both need mental health days. I took most of one yesterday. Another one will be on the books for next week.
