Valentines Week 2013

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Its the first time I'm not too super excited about V-Day. Not because I'm a scrooge but I just don't really feel the need to celebrate. Maybe I'm too comfortable in my marriage. LOL. It is a holiday definitely catered to younger lovers.

Happy Fat Tuesday. I was showing Josh King Cake. I've never had one but there are a ton of recipes out there. Maybe I will make one sometime.

I found some really cool sites I want to share. If I haven't done it before, please listen to podcasts. They are very good. I also really like the detoxinista. Her recipes look good. I have tried the Banana Chocolate shake. Very tasty. I also made her flourless peanut butter cookies which were also good.

I'm still doing great on EBay. I'm not making millions but I am doing ok at finding items and making a little money. I'm looking for a job even though I'm still not ready to send Joey to day care. The other day he almost choked on a cookie and I'm just afraid he would not get the individual attention that I feel he needs at a daycare. I may look for a babysitter at my home. I just don't know.

I would love to get a job at the local art school and take film and television courses. I figure if I keep applying, something will open up for me.

I'm considering saving some money for a cruise for me and Josh next year. We never did take a honeymoon. First we will need to ensure we can come up with the money to fly to Utah for Christmas.

I am at my highest weight ever. Its safe to say I have a full blown addiction to food. I just don't know where to begin. When I think about all the hard work I've blown, I just feel defeated. I've printed out the guidelines of the Beck Diet Solution. I would like to review the material. It offers a psychological approach to dealing with these kinds of issues. I thought if I tried to memorize the material and repeat it back to myself, it would be helpful.

Not much else to report right now. Hope everyone has a good week!

    I was sick for Valentine's Day and we didn't do anything. Our anniversary was the same.

    I've never had King Cake either but am curious about it.

    Thanks for the website recommendations. I am always looking for those.

    I would love to learn to sell on ebay too or Craig's List.

    I have started over many times. Just take baby steps and a day at a time. Small changes add up.

    Comfortable in marriage is a marvelous thing! Excitement and uncertainty are great in romance novels, where the young lovers are kept in suspense until the last chapter, but for living day to day, give me predictable and dependable any time.

    My Tom swears he's the most unromantic creature on the planet, but he drives when the roads are bad, eats my cooking without complaint, makes sure we have money set aside for car insurance and other recurring expenses, pays the bills, and generally makes me feel safe, cared-for and protected. I'll take that over flowers and chocolates any day.

    I'm addicted to food too. Even though you are not totally jazzed about Valentine's Day, I think it's important to do some gesture of love for your husband at this time. Give him a card. I am getting my husband Reese's candy in a heart-shaped box. I also have 2 kids to shop for. I'll likely get them something similar. I think it's nice to keep making an effort in our marriages to let our partner know we love them and that they are worth a little extra effort.
