Manic Monday and Fresh Vegetables

May 3rd, 2010

I’m never one who likes to generalize things, but I have to say that in terms of ‘typical’ Monday’s- this has been one. It has been a weird day all the way around and I can’t help but believe that this isn’t a snapshot of what the rest of the week is going to look like. I believe in bigger and better things to come.

Sleep last night was fitful. For some reason or another, JJ decided to wake every hour and bark, although I still have no idea of exactly what he was barking at. He knows, but I am still dumbfounded.

There are some good things going on, like I found fresh eggplants at the supermarket today for .50 each. I bought four, and even though I have no earthly idea what I’m giong to do with them at this point, for 50 cents I couldn’t leave them behind. I also bought some green beans, bell peppers, strawberries and zucchini. I’ve been watching Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution and I can’t imagine eating processed foods all the time. In fact, I couldn’t tell you the last time I ate something processed and my body reacts when I do.

I know that fresh vegetables are often expensive, but there are always frozen options, which are just as healthy as fresh (and in some cases even more healthy) Try it for two weeks and see for yourself.

Beyond Understanding

March 4th, 2010

Some things in life that happen are really difficult to understand, and are even more difficult when you feel the need to be in a certain place but know you can’t. I spent several day this past weekend and early in the week being conflicted as to whether to take a trip home because of my friend / aunt being in the hospital in NICU. I took over the counter sleeping pills in order to get some sort of rest and peace at night, because I just didn’t know what to do. I’m normally not someone who takes anything to help me sleep, but in this case, it was necessary, otherwise my brain would have never shut off. Don’t worry, I’m not abusing them and there’s no danger of that, but I know I need rest and that was the only way sleep seemed to come. Some things in life just don’t get easier.

Randomness Part Twee (Two)

March 4th, 2010

Remember to keep in mind that I’m just being random with my thoughts, and even if they don’t make sense to you, they may somewhat make sense to me. So much is jumbled up right now that I have to do something. With everything going on, I haven’t been on the elliptical in the past two days. I keep telling myself that it would probably help me emotion wise, but I’ve been so light headed that I am not sure I could do it without falling flat on my face, so I’ve used what I guess could be considered good judgement and haven’t done it. I’ve been watching what I eat (which hasn’t been hard considering I don’t feel like eating) and reading articles on nutrition when I can. One even posed the question does nutrisystem work, and I thought it was an interesting read. I honestly believe that any reasonable plan will work that doesn’t restrict you from eating the things that your body needs to function in a healthy manner.

Randomness Part Een (One)

March 4th, 2010

Right now- I have so much going on in this head of mine, that I really can’t make sense of much. I need to say something, but right now I can’t type everything that I’m feeling, so excuse any randomness that you may find here. More of what is REALLY going on will come to light when I can talk about it without having to try to see through the tears to type.

Something random that you may want to know (or not) is that I recently decided at my age that I needed to find the best acne treatment because at the lovely age of 42 my face has been breaking out. I bought some Clearsil face wash stuff, and I’ve been using it since. It is helping, but it’s also drying my face out, but I think that’s the purpose at least for a little while. It is likely hormonal, but I had to try something.

What a Day!

January 26th, 2010

What a day today ended up being. As I wrote this morning, I almost missed my first train, and my connecting train ended up being canceled, which caused a half hour delay. It worked out just fine, other than the fact that it was 18 degrees this morning and that’s without the wind chill factor. It was COLD!!!

In other news, after I returned home this afternoon and finally turned on the computer for the first time today, I found that I had an email from a friend of mine who is doing some researching on web hosting. She knew that I have had my own site for a little more than a year now, and so she wanted to ask me some questions as far as how I was able to make a choice on the hosting company that I use when there seems to be so many promising everything but the kitchen sink. We were able to talk about and identify what she was planning on using the website for, which gave a better idea of what she actually needed.

I did tell her which hosting company I chose and why, which was based on many reviews that I read and much research. I personally thing I made a great decision with my hosting company and hopefully she will be just as satisfied with the one she chooses.

Quick Note

April 23rd, 2009

It has been a busy day so far here in Neverland, but I have managed to accomplish quite a bit, including a work out- which will allow me a little more time to spend online later this afternoon.

I did manage to get my photos uploaded to my computer from my memory card, so I’ll be sharing a few later on today.

Right now, it’s bath time. I need to make a mad dash to be finished when Marcel arrives home so that we can go pick up a few things at the grocery store, plus make a quick visit to the home improvement store for new window boxes. We also want to look at options for bathroom safety products for one of our elderly neighbors who has been having health issues and is concerned about falling in the bath. She’s such a sweet lady, and doesn’t have familiy aside from one daughter, who doesn’t live nearby. I’d love to be able to help her anyway possible, and help make her life a little easier.

More from me a little later on.


April 16th, 2009

As you can see- I have a little extra time on my hands today, and I’m using it to ramble here in this little space. I have been so busy as of late, I almost don’t know what to do with the extra time, and as I was discussing with a friend yesterday- I have so many things that I want to do, that I often feel as though I’m spinning my wheels. I know that isn’t the case, but I find myself conflicted from wanting to be outside tackling a few projects, or inside at the computer, or creating jewelry- the list goes on.

It could easily overwhelm me, but I don’t see the point since I’ll eventually get around to all of them. I’ve learned quite a bit over the past year about prioritizing, and while I’m still learning, I’m getting there.

How are you with prioritizing?
