After doing all I did yesterday I think I over did it. Today I am just very tired but that is the way it will be until I get my strength back. When we have to do something in our lives that takes our strength away, then we have to work and get it back. It is hard too go slow but that is the way it must be done. No mater what you face go step by step and build yourself up again. It will take time and we must remember that. Be patient and strong, love life and live. Smile

Kick Up Chili Seasoning Mixes with Flavorful Add-Ins
I have a delicious “from scratch” chili recipe that calls for some unusual ingredients, but it takes forever to assemble. To save time, I just add these items to a box of chili seasoning mix. Here’s what I add-in – you can add as many or as few as you like. For liquid add Beer, Beef Broth and Brewed Coffee. For an interesting flavor add a Tablespoon each of Cocoa Powder and Brown Sugar. For beans add a can each of Pinto Beans, Black Beans, Light & Dark Kidney Beans.
Also add canned Tomatoes, Tomato Sauce, Onions, Green Pepper & Lean Ground Meat, like you usually would.
I did a few little things around the office--moved the printer into another room, moved the fax machine farther away. Instead of the staff bringing me my paper work I get up and get it as soon as I print. I also stopped using the intercom. If I want to speak with someone, I get up a go to their office. It made some of the staff nervous having the boss come in all the time, but it has added 1500 steps to my day, on a slow day! I also use a head set and walk back and forth during conference calls.
