Well I’m done for now. I didn’t really get much done, but I just can’t bring myself to do more right now. I’m tired and cranky, bored and restless. So I’m off for now.

My Favorite Time

Posted by Vicki on Nov 16, 2012

This is my favorite time of the year, although I’m not a fan of colder weather. I’m a huge fan of Christmas, and I really feel that this year is going to be the best yet. I really don’t know why this year would be the best, we’re not spending any more, and actually spending less. We don’t have any special plans, no special visitors that I’m aware of, I just feel really happy and excited for the holiday season this year!

generic viagra I’m not very enthusiastic today. I have quite a few things that need done, and quite a few more things that I want to get done, but…..I’m kind of bored and restless too, but….Yep, that “but” is the hang up, because on the flip side of things, I don’t really want to do anything. I don’t even want to sit here and do this, but I figured I had to do something somewhat constructive.

There Are Times

when I wish things in my life were different. Right now I’m not finding joy in my blogs. It’s a chore, and that’s not how it’s supposed to be, but I don’t want to give them up either! So I guess I just keep muddling through the work of them, and hope that this discontent phase passes!

Well I suppose I should get on with things, and stop delaying!

Done Here

Well I’ve finished up on this blog, so now I need to move on with other things. I have other work to do online, as well as clothes to fold, a kitchen to mop, dishes to get done, and of course schoolwork with the girls to get done, along with a few other things like going into town, and delivering the rent payment.

Well, we are a bit late getting our morning going around here. Usually by now we are into our second subject, or at least finishing up the first. Today, however, the girls are still eating breakfast, and I am doing work. It works out, although I don’t want to make a habit out of starting late. We’ve made excellent progress over the last few months of school, but I still feel that we have a long way to go this year. However, it is still early in the school year.

The weather has turned chilly these past couple of days. We even had a freeze warning one morning, but I don’t think it actually froze. It appears instead of 50′s, like it has been the past couple of days, that the temp’s are going back up into the 60′s and maybe even 70′s, which I’m glad to hear. I do not want winter weather yet!!

*sigh* Where Did Time Go?

It’s hard to believe that yesterday marked my daughter’s 13th birthday. How time flies! It’s been a hard journey, and yet no greater journey have I ever had! I know the journey has had mistakes and missteps, but I also know that we have a strong bond.

From here on out, I hear it gets tougher, but I’m not so sure. I know that her decisions will become more difficult, and sometimes the line between right and wrong may not be so clear, but I think she’ll do okay. I just hope I do okay in letting her make more decisions on her own, and just try to be a supportive influence for her. Thankfully she knows that I’m always here for her to talk to, and come to, even if she’s made a mistake.

I’m dragging a bit this morning, but I’ll get over it. I’ve had trouble keeping my walking, bedtime routine this week, which explains why I’m dragging. My body is telling me it doesn’t want to walk anymore, and it wants to stay up late at night, instead of sleep. So I’m having to force myself to get up and moving. I can’t let up! I have to keep pushing. If I back off for a day or two to get some extra rest, I won’t want to walk anymore. The walking is good for me in many ways, so I must stay committed!

So Excited!

I went to the Dr yesterday to get the allergy testing done that he’s wanted to do for acouple of years now. They weighed me, as always, and I’m am excited to say that I’ve lost almost 4 pounds in the month that the girls and I have been walking!!!! It’s true that I started walking in hopes of losing weight, but over the course of the past month I’ve found a renewed joy in walking, loved to find my muscles toning up, the time spent with the girls on our walks, and even my solitary walks on Saturdays. It’s even better to know that I’m also losing the weight as I had hoped!!
