I have had a great weekend. I have been at the pool Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Oh my so relaxing!!!!!!!!!! I do think I had too much sun on Saturday because I did have a big headache Saturday night and again earlier this am. But by 10 am it was gone, thank goodness.
I have enjoyed spending the weekend with the family. Ah!!!!
Oh BIG news - Son 1 moved out this weekend into his own apartment. He is 27 - so it is time. The hubby is not sure about this move, he is sad. Son 2 is mad because Son 1 didn't hang out with him any this weekend and let him know about it. HeHeHe Me? I'm ok that he moved out. Don't get me wrong, it is kinda sad, but I am excited for him - it's a new beginning for him and I remember that feeling. Besides it's not like he moved to another state. He moved one road over from us.
Once again I am changing my blog background. I am pretty happy with this one, but I downloaded a 3 column background and only have two columns, ugh!!!!!!!!! I really like the header but don't like where the title is..........................so it's work in progress. I hope to figure it out tomorrow, cause I have had enough tonight.
If you have any "pointers" for me, I am listening.
I am a HUGE Diet Coke addict. I sometimes will drink Diet Pepsi, Diet Mtn Dew, Diet Dr. Pepper or Diet Cheerwine. Anyway, I met this lady today who lost 82 lbs in 12 months, WOW!!! So being the nosy person that I am, I ask - how did you do that?? And.....she said I stopped drinking soft drinks and eating sweets. Ohhhh, hummmm, I am wondering since I drink diet drinks - if I stopped drinking those, (thinking, thinking) would I be able to lose weight? Oh man not drinking Diet Coke.............do I really want to give that up? On the other hand it would be nice to lose 10 or 15 lbs. It would seem to be an easy way to get rid of some weight. Not sure how much it would matter by not drinking diet drinks, but I am thinking it just might be worth a try.
I don't have to worry about the sweets - I can take them or leave them. I only have a desire for sweets occasionally. But Diet Coke! - man I can drink some Diet Coke!!!
There are just some Mondays that kick my butt. Yesterday was one of them.....it was crazy. I finally got to leave work at 7 pm. Can we say "OMG?" Good part is that I didn't have to cook dinner, thanks goodness. Met the family at Sagebrush for wings and then finally home by 8:30 pm. What a day!!!! I did nothing when I got home, you know like wash clothes, pick up and put up ---- oh I will pay for that on Tuesday.
Well looking back, I'm just thankful that I have a job!!
The doc I work for is out of town today and tomorrow. So that means I got to leave work today at 3:30 pm, instead of my usual time, which can be anywhere from 5 pm to 7 pm. And (drum roll) the office is closed tomorrow, YAY - I'm off. I am very fortunate to have such great benefits, a wonderful boss, a job I love, but most of all I am fortunate to have a JOB!
After work I went to Wal Mart to pick up Father's Day gifts and cards (I know a little behind). Anyway while sitting at a stop light, there is a man standing on the side of the road in battered clothes, looks dirty, with a sign that reads - "Hungry, Need Food, God Bless." I have really mixed feelings about these people - First, are they really without?, Second, some of them scare me (sorry but true), Third - what does God want me to do? Then I think to myself, WOW I'm off this afternoon and I'm still getting paid. So by this time I'm feeling sad.....and the light turns green.
OK shopping done, leaving Wal Mart - I pass 4 cars at the end of the parking lot with "FOR SALE" signs in them. Soooo feeling sad again. Are people selling their cars because they don't have a job and can't afford them anymore? Is Wal Mart becoming a used car lot???
On my way home I can't begin to tell you how many homes I saw with "FOR SALE" signs and I really don't live that far from Wal Mart. Really feeling sad now. I would assume that most of these homes are for sell because, once again, so many people are losing their jobs.
After seeing all of this, I really am so thankful that I have a job, a home, a car, and so much more. It makes me sad and mad to see people losing everything. Our nation has become a place of greed :( and I feel that greed (along with excluding God in our lives) is what got us where we are today. If only we could back up a little and see what we were doing to ourselves. Now we must learn from our mistakes (the hard way) and do our best to push forward.
Oh, I could on and on about this, but enough said. I pray for God's guidance for the future. I pray for God's forgiveness of the mess we have made of our country. I SHOUT to the people and say put God back into our COUNTRY!!!!!!!!!!! AMEN!
.....if you mow your grass out in the road, does that mean you wont mind if I drive thru your yard??
.....if you approach a red octagon shaped sign with the letters S-T-O-P, would you not think you are suppose to STOP? - I mean come to a complete STOP before entering the road. (or is that a YIELD sign?)
.....if your child is running around screaming in the store, why do you YELL at the child to be quiet?
.....why must the lady at McDonald's always ask me if I want to try an Ice Mocha? If I want an ice mocha, I will order one.
.....why must the lady at McDonald's always ask me if I want my pennies? Well of course I want my pennies. (What is she going to do with them? One day I am going to ask her.)
.....why, if you tell me you are going to do something, do you not do it? or at least let me know that you are not going to do it?
.....why, if you pull out in front of me, can you not press the gas pedal and go on?
I had a great day at work, but it was looonngggg. Man, I didn't think 5 pm would ever roll around. This evening I worked on church reports for the Finance Mtg tomorrow night. ughhh! I didn't get home until 9:30pm. I haven't even seen my husband or son #1 today. They were gone when I got up and in the bed when I got home :( Did get to see son #2, thank goodness someone was up to greet me home.
I have been thinking about starting a blog that is private, so I can let loose and put down how I really feel about some things. This way you want be able to read them and think that I am a awful person. Hopefully, I am not the only person out there that has abnormal (easier way to say bad) thoughts. Sometimes I like to express myself - put down how I really feel about things............don't you think that would classify as some type of therapy? I know it would be cheaper, HaHaHa! It could be my daily journal, pouring out my life, good or bad. I think it just might make me feel better...........imagine no headaches, more sleep, ahhhhhh! and you would only see the good post and think that I am still an angel 0:)
I think I might be doing some therapy right now. The only thing it cost me was time. YAY!
Ok, enough blabbing. Off to bed. Sweet dreams all.
As you can tell I haven't posted for a few days, so I will catch you up on my life this past week.
First, it's raining today and I am off from work. I don't mind the rain - it actually makes me smile. Weird huh! I love to listen to it rain, especially at night. It makes my ever roaming mind slow down.
So last weekend was great. It was the best weekend that I have had in a while. We did nothing special but had lots of fun doing nothing. Does that make any sense to you? The week at work was good - I really do love my job and enjoy meeting new people all the time. I admit that some of the people I meet are very (hummmmm) interesting. Ha - I work in a doctor's office, that should help you understand.
And as I said before, I am off today. Long weekend. We are going to Charlotte tonight to hang out with friends and family. Birthday lunch tomorrow for a special grandpa, dinner with the visiting BIL, SIL and kids tomorrow night. And Sunday we are going to a new church - Journey. I am really excited. Journey is a "spin off" church from Biltmore Baptist in Asheville. Should be a great service or so I hear.
Well that's about it. Hope everyone has a great weekend. I intend to!
