Hilarious, Army Girl showed me this video on u-tube.  It is about the end of the world.  It is very funny, here is the link if you want to go look at it.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trzUn42ongs 

As you can see I am procrastinating, I should be studying for my midterm but I have finished a book and chatted with an old friend from grade school on Facebook and will be leaving in a few minutes to get my walk in.  I have done the problems from chapter 8 so only have 9-11 to do yet today.  Then taking the day off tomorrow, ok I will be taking my textbook with me to reread while doing all of the running around tomorrow. 

I was able to get my website up and running for the Susan G. Komen 3-day for the cure.  If you would like to donate please contact me and I will send you the link.  I am asking for $10 from everyone I know.  It is such a great cause.  Everyone has boobies, so everyone should want to keep them.  On that profound thought . . .

Happy thoughts for a happy day!

I am stealing a little time from studying to write today.  I realized I hadn’t written in a few days.  Sorry about that.    I went swimming today for the first time in a month.  I only did a half mile because it has been so long.  I will do ¾ mile on Thursday, working my way back into it.  It felt so good swimming today.  It is totally freeing, gliding through the water no stress on the body just pure motion.  I did the ½ mile in 30 minutes so I haven’t lost much, but I have to bowl tonight so I took it easy. 

This week is three miles for walking, I walked to meet Hubby yesterday, we took the long way.  First we went the other way and then after .4 miles turned around and headed in the right direction, we did the loop by the park and met hubby, we almost made it to the corner which was my goal but Steve decided to be stupid.  I had to take a detour across the street and kick his butt.  Some people were walking a little dog across the street and dumbass decided he wanted to play.  So I had to go get him and apologize to the people and their yipping drama queen of a dog.  That couple of minutes is what made us not make it to the corner.  But it was close.  For those who are counting I did 3 miles yesterday and have a total of 25.5 miles.  I will do three miles today as well.

I am reading a book called “The Noticer” by Andy Andrews.  “Sometimes, all a person needs is a little perspective.”  I have read two chapters and I would recommend this book to others.  One of the points that have come through in the first few chapters is something I have heard before and kind of forgotten.  Whatever you focus upon, increases – think about it, if you want positive things to happen you need to focus on positive things, if you are a happy person and open to opportunity, happy things and opportunity come your way.  If you focus on negative things, negative things happen.  YOU GET WHAT YOU LOOK FOR.  What are you looking for?  How are you getting it?

I just saw the absolute height of laziness.  Steve was lying in his kennel with his face in his dish eating his food.  He would stick his tongue out and get some food to stick to it and then pull it into his mouth.  Using the minimum of effort, no standing to eat, no raising his head, the absolute height of laziness!  What has this dog come too?  Where did he learn this?  What can l learn from this?

I have noticed that often people put in the minimum effort possible.  I am guilty of this.  Sometimes I do it when I am exercising or cleaning my house.   “Oh good enough for who it’s for” heard that before?  I know I have, I know I have used it, often.  Why do we do that?  Mine is pure laziness.

I have been thinking lately, I deserve better.  So that “good enough for who it’s for” has to be better.  I am physically taking better care of myself so now I need to mentally take better care of myself.  You should try it.  If we all try it maybe we can get that saying to mean something different.  What are you going to do to treat yourself better?

OMG!!!!! A funny thing just happened.  My insurance guy stopped by.  Huh? Why is that funny?  Well he is a very lucky man, I had clothes on!  I had been sitting around doing homework and messing around on the computer, at about 11 is decided to go take a shower and put some clothes on.  I had been out of the shower and dressed for maybe 15 minutes when he showed up on my doorstep!  OMG the timing of it all just cracks me up.  So most of you are going so he would have seen you in your jammies, except I don’t wear jammies!  If he had been to my house 30 minutes earlier he would have found me naked or if he was really lucky in my bathrobe.  The poor guy would have just died; he is one of those really nice older very catholic gentlemen.  Just thinking about it makes me laugh out loud!

Another odd thing that has happened is this company that had contacted me last summer and rejected me, has contacted me again.  I was just thinking about them.  They make me so mad; they rejected me simply on grade point average from college 15 years ago.  I always regretted the cover letter I sent, I tried to follow the rules in it and it was stale and boring.  This time I am going to be myself and write the letter my way.  If they reject me again at least it will be me and not some lifeless letter. 

I am making fish with carrots, celery, onion and potatoes for dinner.  I am going to put it all together in a pouch with a little butter and cook it in oven.  It will be a delicious dinner ready about the time Hubby and I get home.  I will be walking to meet him for my training walk today.  I am also going to add some garlic and salt and pepper for seasoning.  Mmmm makes me hungry just thinking about it.

Happy thoughts for a happy day!

I am sitting here indulging in my one guilty pleasure the trash tv show, America’s Next Top Model.  The show cracks me up, I have only seen a couple of the girls in actual ads, and neither of them were the “winner.”  If my girls act the way these girls do I would have squashed them like a bug!  They are some very bratty people.  But I still like watching it.  I don’t watch a lot of “reality tv” so there could be worse things to watch. 

My friend, XH, made this comment on Facebook: 

walking for lunch and seeing two bald eagles! boy I luv living in the northwoods

It got me thinking, I really like living here, but I take it for granted.  Every day when I am walking I see eagles and deer.  When I am walking I see deer tracks and other animal tracks everywhere.  At night when I turn the lights off I can see stars.  When I look up at the stars I can see in the infiniteness and it makes me feel small.  There is so much beauty it can take your breath away. 

I think there are a lot of things we take for granted in this life.  We are so lucky because we have so many alternatives, food, water, shelter, our health, our very lives.  Look at your life and let me know what you have been taking for granted.

I walked two miles today. Steve and I walked to the creek and back.  There were lots of tracks and there was something that Steve was very interested in.  I am lucky because I have the dog with me, and we make a lot of noise so I am pretty sure we will not surprise anything (read this as bears) as we walk. 

Happy thoughts for a happy day!

I have 8 minutes and then I need to get in the shower.  I did two miles today, yesterday Hubby and I did 3.5, I have a running total and I will post it tomorrow.  Army Girl is at training for the census.  They wouldn’t take me because I couldn’t go to training last week.  They said they would call me with new training dates.  They called Army Girl instead.  She needs to do something.  I think being home all the time is starting to get on her nerves. 

I have to start looking for a job; the unemployment office wants me to contact at least two potential employers every week.  I will do so, it is just really hit home that I will not be going back.  I guess I just hoped that they would come to their senses and realize they need me.  But they let the unemployment people that I would not be recalled.  *Sigh* it always sucks to find out you are not needed or wanted. 

Well times up, I have to shower and go to the dentist.  I might write more later if not till tomorrow…

Happy thoughts for a happy day!
