Zodiac Signs and Other Ramblings

Thursday, January 13, 2011

What a week!

First, I get knocked out by a nasty cold virus, days without exercising, doing anything other than logging in to SP and feeling sorry for yourself. What is it about being sick? The first thing I think about is wishing my mom were here to take care of me, which she can't be because she passed away seven long years ago. But for some reason, even at 29 years old, at the first sign of being ill, I want my mom. I get downright babyish.

Then Tucson happened. I don't live in Tucson but love the city, so know that I'm not making light of the situation by adding other things to this blog that are less than serious. It's a beautiful city with beautiful people, and I am truly sorry for what they have all gone through. Already being in a sad mood, but never a crier, the President's speech moved me to tears.

Being a self-described political junky, I was hitting the blogs and news stations all day seeing the reaction of, well, admittedly, everyone. Not my best idea. It just made me angry.

So apparently needing to get a life, I turned to the evening news to unwind (I know, I know) only to find out that they are changing my zodiac sign from Leo to Cancer. I'm not one to live by the zodiac, but I do find it interesting that much of my personality is actually represented by the Leo sign. For some reason, this just makes me want to protest or something. I mean, no offense to people that find themselves under the Cancer sign, but I just refuse. I hate the name. It represents something my mom died from. So much respect to the astronomer, but suck it.

Well, tomorrow I'm back to the grind. Finally feeling good enough to get back to the treadmill and work on my strength training.

Oh, by the way, part of my astrology report for today:
You may more easily have temper tantrums, and might fly off the handle over petty things. Impatience and rushing could make you trip over yourself. You are in a fighting mood and stand up for your rights more readily than usual, but beware of the tendency to be insensitive.
