Having a Blast!

Saturday, February 16, 2013

Hello all,

Just dropping in to prove to MYSELF that I am still alive. Swear I should be dead today, but seems it is not to be. It's finally raining here in what seems to be a larger storm system than we've had this week. We needed the rain badly as everything is so dusty, but I sure do wish I could have seen a few snowflakes this year. Maybe I can travel somewhere next year where I can see them.

Last night was date night with Alaska Man again. I have so much fun on these evenings. We talk about some of the craziest things and we have so much fun and get along so well. But I really need to be wearing blinders like they put on horses. Something to keep my mind in the present... but I always have been a dreamer and my mind refuses to relent. So as with all things I must adjust.

My mother cooked spaghetti last night and put WAY too much salt in it so I have had a 5 pound gain in water weight. I am terribly, uncomfortably swollen. I can barely even get my hand around my wrist I am so swollen. Misery is the theme for the day. It's a strength training day for me, but I will have to ride the bike - which I HATE - in place of my walking as I am not slogging through the mud!

Oh, and I had a little setback yesterday. I smoked a cigarette. I was so ashamed of smoking it that I hid out behind the chop shop. Well, my good for nothing "watch dog" walked up AFTER my parents rounded the corner on their walk. So I got full-on busted for smoking a stale cigarette. I laughed and so did they, but the secret is out and I need to get my butt back on the straight and narrow with that! Immediately.

And so I need to get my butt up and get some working out in before I want to lay back down and go back to sleep.

    change the theme for the day to "I am a survivor" ...
    you can push through most everything, even a man who has distracted you to the point of confusion.
    Remember to give yourself a break everyday and relax back into YOU so YOU don't get lost in the shuffle of another persons life. It's very important in a relationship, to maintain those things that you know do YOU well.

    Remember Angela, breath!!

    Sorry to hear of your set back :( Hope you can nip it in the bud, and you are strong enough to do so!
    Spaghetti? Ugh, need to airlift a healthy chef in there :P Drink lots of extra water, wash that sh*t out.
    So glad you have this Alaska dude to make days a little bit brighter for you!
    One thing about the bike. At least your mind can drift off to Never Never land while you are doing that and you won't have any danger of tripping over something and falling. You find altogether too many ways to damage yourself. Your body has had enough!
    Hope you have a great weekend!

    I'm glad you're still alive and kicking, even if some of your choices weren't that great. Sounds like you're having an amazing time with Alaska Man, so happy for you. emoticon
