I've been away from this thread too long. Thank you to Sarah for being excited for me hitting ONEderland. Hope the job situation is resolved in a way that makes you happy and comfortable. Good luck to Jennifer on her microsoft exam!
Gralan, OUCH. You moved on a broken foot? Prayers for fast healing! Toya, what lovely, unselfish wishes and blessings!

Today, at this very moment, I am...resolving to do better. I gained a pound, then lost it back into ONEderland...and this morning I find that nasty bugger right back where it doesn't belong. This is the first experience I've had with gain in nearly 6 months since the surgery. I will NOT allow it to become a trend. I will find a way to get back on track, even though I don't think I've veered very far very often from what I am supposed to be doing. Working on keeping an athlete's mindset and habits.

...strangely, not thinking about myself. I originally came here to rant about a personal issue that's been on my mind for a few days, but instead I'll just say...

@SBEAR5- Pray, meditate, chant, go for a run, call a friend or do whatever helps bring you clarity. Trust your intuition. emoticon

@UNSTOPPABLE JEN - Good luck on your exam! emoticon

@GRALAN - So happy for you and your wife that you will have a home that accommodates your wife's medical needs. I really enjoy reading your witty comments on the message boards.

To all, didn't mean to leave anyone out; these are just the most recent replies on this topic that I saw. And to all Peace and Love, Namaste

Cheers to good health!!!

Stressing about job decisions. I got a call about a job yesterday, it's a great company but it would be a SIGNIFICANT pay cut. However, I think I would enjoy the work and there would be plenty of opportunity for growth.

I was also asked about another job similar to what I'm doing now. But... I don't like what I do now. haha

I don't know. I feel stressed. DH wants me happy, but the big pay cut has him nervous as well.

It only took 60 days for 1 page of checkmarks and 3 signatures to get filled out. I hand delivered from Stone oak to Flores downtown.

tired of the drama court jesters that inhabit our apt complex. Life's too short for living in a soap opera. Lost a semi-feral kitten to a speeder in our parking lot, on top of everything else. As the resident cat whisperer, I buried it with good memories. Momma is looking fo it, finally letting me pet her a little. Life goes on...

Today, at this very moment I am tired. I'm fatigued from the less than good choices I made this weekend. But, i'm in the mentality today...fake it until you make it. I'm determined not to fall completely off the wagon so I may be tired but i will not give in. I will remain positive.

Glad to help another 'homeless' guest get a job, eat 3 squares, have shelter & shower. 2nd in as many weeks. Pretty much need an address, a phone number, and be clean & refreshed to get a job. Crazy ain't it? We're proof you can help others and be living under the poverty level. :-)

Feeling thankful for my wife, and inadequate starting a home church. Then again, if I felt adequate I might not need God to work through me. Hmmm.

Congrats on your wife's upcoming surgery! I hope that she is able to enjoy a better quality of life after the procedure.

Today, I am stressed...I'm writing a proposal at work and I'm not sure I'm doing it correctly. I'm fighting the urge to procrastinate (i.e., posting on Sparkpoeple instead of writing the proposal, lol!)

Grieving for all the folks I know and are acquainted w/ who not only are in pain physically, emotionally, mentally, financially but spiritually. Good time to pray about everything, eh? (see Phlp4, in the NT - Bible - for where I draw this courage from). I'm knowing these things myself, and although my wife and I are all-around broken we keep on truckin' trying to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly.

We can do this!

sad:( I didn't like what a friend put on my facebook page and I ask her not to put anything else on my timeline and not to put me down anymore and she befriended me and even blocked me! I had even given her a place to live with me for several months before she moved to Georgia. After 8 years of friendship I was just tired of her putting me down all the time. But sad we are no longer friends but I guess it is for the best. Seems like every time I stand up for myself I lose friends but maybe they were not the right friends after all! Anyway,
hope everyone has a great day! :)

Taking every day as a gift from God and being so thankful for my kids and my very funny granddaughter! Each day is a new day and I am thankful for it.

... stuck resting with a cat at my ankles, another near my head. My vertigo is overactive, and when I went to ask for some real pain killers, the VA told me to cut down on my intake of ibuprofen for my sciatica so I'm in a fine state -- but the cats kind of anchor me at the moment.

I hope not to be known as "Deacon Blues", but I will answer to Dizzy-G... I gotta try to smile, it might be contagious. emoticon
