Random Tuesday Thoughts

1. Where has June gone? I can believe that July is just around the corner.

2. Why do friends act a weird when you ask them a dozen questions about life and then get mad because you don't share with them everything they want to know, when no questions were asked? I don't get it.

3.Why oh why does it have to rain so much? I need sunshine on my days off at least!

4.Groceries, wow the cost of them, I should make my whole family go on a diet! Crazy! Went for a big shop today and 400 bucks later came home. What a cycle, push a cart, put stuff in, take it out and put on a belt to be rang up and bagged, back in the cart, out of cart in the trunk, out of trunk in the house, unbagged and put away.

5.I still have yet to watch the movie I have been want to watch" The Memory Keepers Daughter", maybe tomorrow on my last day off.

6. Works been busy, and my body hurts, glad for 2 days off.

7. What is one fond memory you have from a summer as a child?

Okay so I went really random.......LOL

I Got That Broken Feeling

Yes, Yes my Body has that broken feeling this morning, well and did last night too. I work in a restuarant in town serving food. The last couple days have been slow and easy, until yesterday people came crawling out of the woodwork it seems. I ran the full length of that busy restuarant for a full 2 and a half hours, at the beginning of my shift. The restaurant is pretty spread out and is capable of seating 90. I was the only waitress on duty and lets just say I had to put myself on speed woman mode and rock out some food and service. I managed to keep everyone happy and fed, and make $100 in tips during that time. Then the next 2 hours of my shift I had 1 table and made another 3 bucks. But oh boy did I have one heck of a mess to clean and stock for the next waitress coming in.
I though some good sleep and relaxing would fix this broken feeling, but nope no such luck and I will be back at it again today 12-4:30.

I live in a tourist town and the summers are large here. I guess I will get my chance to repair come September when they all go home........LOL

WW..The Girl Likes Watermelon

Random Tuesday Thoughts

1. I was going to take the summer off from working, but life had other plans for me and I'm back to work and my hours were just increased. I hope my body can hold out running around that restaurant serving food.

2. I have decided I really need to loose a few pounds and have been working hard on losing them and not finding them again. So far I'm lost a few with many more to go.

3. Ya know a salad with chicken on it for diner is really a great meal.

4. I wanted to go back to Portland in August and the funds are just not there, so we are planning a trip to the State fair. That's about 200 miles or so from home(one way) so we will get a hotel and stay up there and go to the fair 2 days in a row and come home.

5. I have 2 more months of summer vacation and then it will be back to school, this next term will be Paraprofessional Counseling, and English 211, my last English class.

6. I think I will try and work and go to school, which I have never done before. I wonder if I can pull both of them off and still get A's.

7. I just read a good book called "The Memory Keepers Daughter" and found out there is also a movie on the book, so I hope to watch it today before returning back to work tomorrow.

Letter of Intent

Dear friend in EL Passo TX,

It has been days since I have heard from you. It doesn't seem like we should live so far apart. I know it's been years since we have seen each other, and I miss you. I know we both have our own lives, and I hope that one day we can meet up again, and enjoy each others company like we have in the past. You are a special friend and I value our friendship. I hope that life brings you much happiness and joy.

Until we meet up again,


If you have an issue that needs to be addressed head over to Julie's & write your letter.

A Wonderful Day At The Beach

We had a wonderful day at the beach in Homer last week on Tuesday. My daughter and I took the girls down there for a day of beach combing and shopping. It was a little windy but we had a wonderful day.

Lora was skipping rocks in the water and this excited the girl to no end.
Emily spotted this boat and she sreams"Looks that Boat is speeding, he needs a ticket" We laughed at that because she was so serious, out of the mouth of Babes.
I love Homer, Ocean water and Mountains all in one. It's like a 2 for 1 deal.
It was an awesome day and we took the kids all up and down the beach, breathing in the fresh air and the beauty of the day.
I hope to make it back down there soon for another relaxing day.

Some Conculsions and a Road Trip

I have had some personal things going on in my life the last couple months, and it has made me have a full range of emotions flowing through my head and body. I think I have finally got those things under control and I'm letting go, and becoming aware of life is not all it is cracked up to be. So instead of cracking up, I'm living for today each day. No more past, no more future, I will look at the day each and everyday and nothing else. Prayers do work, yes they do!

Now on to my road trip. Today my daughter Lora and Grandkids Gwen and Emily are taking a road trip to Homer, for the day. Homer is an awesome coastal town 90 miles from here, and it's a beautiful day to make a trip. We are going to walk on the for shells. Shop in the shops and just enjoy ourselves. I need a day out and some time out, and this is perfect. I bought batteries for my camera so you know I will have pictures to share soon.

Everyone have a beautiful day.

Ever Have.......

Ever have days when you feel like you have lost your best friend?

Ever have days when you feel like your dreams are shattered?

Ever have days when nothing seems to go your way?

Ever have days when you feel bi-polar?

Ever have days when you feel like going back to bed, covering up your head and not seeing the light of day?

Ever have days when you feel like your dreams and goals mean nothing to you?

Weight Issues

I struggle with my eating habits all the time. I do good for awhile when I want to loose weight and then something (stress) comes along and bam I over eat once again. I can say that I'm addicted to chocolate and I'm not real proud of it. Sometimes I kick myself for not doing better with my eating habits and I have learned that it only makes it worse, so I try hard not to put myself down for this. I don't like the way I look and feel, and some days I want to cry at the way I look in the mirror, other days it's a look of who cares and I am what I am. Do any of you ever have this problem? Do you ever feel the way I do? I'm sure I'm not alone, but there are days I feel like it.
Why does loosing some weight and keeping it off have to be so hard?
Some people say it's easy to control and just exercise and eat less, well I don't think they live in my head. I'm not trying to make an excuse, but dang!
Just another confusing thought pattern going on in my head.

This Week Wrap Up

Monday through Wednesday I had off from working and those days I did some serious house cleaning and yard cleaning. I meant to have what I call a down day but life got in the way of that.

I waited for a email from a long distance friend, clue never wait for emails! LOL

Yesterday was back to work and it was not very busy but steady, I like being back to work, it gives me something to do besides ponder on life.

Last night I got the total clue on blogging, yes the world sees what I write and takes it for face value, so be honest and open or just don't write about things you don't want people to see.(Thank-you Lacey)

Today is a new day, and a work day, I'm hoping for a slamming busy weekend, so I make the big bucks!

WordlessWed. , A Girl and her Corn

Really Random

First off My Husband and I are working on our relationship, and I'm hoping to mend our current issues. Thank you everyone for your kind words and prayers.

Yesterday we worked on our house, deep cleaning and hanging new mini blinds. That was a chore and it's looking very nice.

I can't believe it is Tuesday already, seems days off from work go way faster than days working.

Wow June 1st already, where does time go, we are close to half way with 2010. WOW!

Tonight I have a massage therapist(friend) coming to my house to give me a well needed massage. This will be a great relief to my worn-out, stressed-out body.

I'm thinking I need a road trip in my near future. Maybe next week on my days off I will go to Homer, which is 90 miles from home and enjoy the beach and some shopping.

Our summer has hit nicely and our day light hours are over 18 hours of light now, so it never gets totally dark. I love this time of year!

Hmmm my Daughter's man is home this week, maybe he will take us out on the boat to catch some salmon. Now there is a thought!

Ok, enough with the random, everyone have a beautiful day.
