Gratitude list for January

Friday, February 03, 2012

~Mall walking with mom (looking at all the pretty feminine clothes at Charlotte Rouse I'll be able to fit in by next year).

~Dayton called me to keep me up to date on the Drudge Report.

~Met Earl's pretty new girlfriend.
~Jimmy found the reset button on my treadmill after it stopped working.

~Played games with Jim and watched a great movie (altogether a nice night despite Joelle's incident)

~Earl came over.

~New online class is very exciting (Britain during the reformation)
~Had fun with my brother Dayton doing his English project and going around town.

~Mom and me hashed out a new plan (carb-cycling and prayer).

~Bob and me discussed the joys (no literally) of dishwashing.
~Jimmy found fahrenheit 451 for me (i have a project to do w/my teenage brother)

~I figured out how to get closed captioning on my new T.V. so now I can listen to my music while reading t.v.

~I did my two walks and stayed on my diet. I have exactly 32 weeks to lose 80 lbs that's 2.5 lbs a week (a tough but reachable goal that should keep me pushing).
~Boss let me out two hours early so I could attend my brothers b-day party.

~Got to see Maximus... he's getting so big (almost 6 months)!

~Our lawyer endorsed Ron Paul after hearing about Mitt Romney's dog exploitation.

~A new day to start again.
~My Grandfather made it through a dangerous procedure.

~My aunt vicki cut my hair for me.

~Watched the sequel "Before sunset" (and they are making a threequel!)

~Got $100 off a 32in TV and jim set it up in my treadmill room

~Got the bluelight special at Kmart and met a Ron Paul supporter in the checkout line... we were able to give him a bumper sticker a liberty video and told him to join our meet-up group.
~Watched a sweet romance with mom "before sunrise" and there is a sequal! We will watch that on Friday after Dave's turkey dinner."

~I hestitated leaving just long enough to catch my brother Dayton at the door.

~Helped my mom move her bed backupstairs... she cleared out a room so I have a place to be when I come over.

~I gained a savings of $50 a month that should just about cover the increase in my health insurance!
~Ron Paul came in second in New Hampshire

~Feel refreshed even though I had a fitful nights sleep

~Jimmy walked up to bank to make a deposit so I didn't have to leave the house

~New countdown ticker is really inspirational
~Jimmy tucking me in and bringing me cold medicine.

~Lindi let me go home early cuz I was sick.

~Jimmy re-arranged the furniture for me in the living room... now it's much more peaceful on the eye.

~We have enough money to cover the bills this month despite losing two tenents and having to return a security deposit.
~Wrote today; I have committed 11,000 words to "paper" (my book is well started)

~Jimmy fixed the pipes this morning

~Lent a neighbor $5 and as a thank you he gave us a 20lb turkey that was donated to him
~Finally cleaned off paper piles on my counter and found a new place for my corkboards.

~Me and Jim cleaned together for about two hours it was very reinvigorating.
