Football
As I go editing and deleting stuff on here that is way out of date, I am only thinking of my so called NewYear resolutions and Football (!) I got to see most of the recent Packers/Vikings game. LOVED the outcome! My Minnesota friends would again have me run out of town, haha! And saw the Fiesta Bowl, ditto for the outcome.
But the game last night :( aww, poor Irish!

New Year resolutions
Well, I survived 2012, obviously. 2013 better be a better year. I need to address an issue in my lifestyle which I hope to have ironed out during the first 3 months of this new year.

Lunar Eclipse
I did get up early this morning, which hasn't been way out of my norm lately... and watched the Lunar Eclipse.... it was breathtaking and beautiful. Almost as awe-inspiring as watching the sunrise on the morning of the Solstice.....

Birthday
I had a wonderful birthday yesterday Meeting my Grandson, Isaac for the first time was awesome. He is soooo cute!
Now I am 51. I'm glad I made it through this last year, it was pretty rough going at times.
Today I feel sort of blah, maybe it's because I had an errand to do that I hate. It involves paperwork I had to fill out this week. Maybe too, I ate too much sugar yesterday and it's "sugar-low".
I am now 6 weeks since I quit smoking. I'm glad I've been making it this long.

If I had a Christmas wish-list for this year and I really haven't made one in a few years, it would only include gift-cards for stores I frequent, like Target or Walmart. One of these months I hope to get a cell-phone too. But I need to keep putting it off.

Great American Smokeout?
I just saw an article on Bing that today is the 35th anniversary of the Great American Smokeout, sponsored by The American Cancer Society. Yippee! Everyone should quit. But it can be the hardest thing in the world when you are addicted to nicotine. I am now on my 21st day of my latest attempt an smoking cessation. Everyday smokefree is a blessing.

I'm getting mentally ready for Thanksgiving, but will likely be working that day. I don't have any real plans then.

Last weekend on Saturday I went down to the Embarcadero to see that Cruiseship Carnival Splendor. It looks bigger then in pictures on tv, the internet, or the newspaper! I think it's the biggest ship I have ever seen!

Tomorrow is Aidan/Michaela's birthday. She is 11 this year. That came up fast! I still have no word on "Baby Bam-Bam" but each day has gotta be closer....

Current Mood: okay

It's Friday, payday, not like I'm rich, but every dollar helps. I almost wanted to get a storage unit because Lorelei brought over my stuff that has been in storage at their place for a year and a half today. But I just can't come up with the extra $ for now.
I have gone exactly one week without smoking! Yay for me! That is a huge accomplishment compared to my previous attempts.

feeling better
I feel a lot better. Halloween was okay. I am without a lot of anxiety this week. I am currently trying to quit smoking again. It gets so discouraging when, for the last couple attempts I havven't gotten more then 36 hours into it. Now I've gone 4 1/2 days! I better keep it up, because T-day is coming, and the pace of work should be picking up very soon. And of course other stuff too.
The weather here has been good the last few days too, I suppose I needed the sunlight.

I saw Lorelei a number of days ago for breakfast. She is so close to having the baby! It's exciting. November has plenty of birthdays in my family. There is my brother, Marc on the 8th, Aidan/Michaela on the 19th, and "Bam-Bam" who will be anybody's guess! But I think he's going to come before T-day.

Oh, and the last word on election day, I was so ready to vote that I mailed my absentee ballot weeks ago!

We got a pretty big rainstorm earlier this week. Very unlike SoCal in the fall. And all the drizzly weather on other days. It's bringing on a tad bit of seasonal depression.
I'm glad for a day off from work. This week I nearly made up for a previous week with many days off. No plans other then to get caught up on errands I couldn't get done before.

Current Mood: blah

Grandma Shopping
I just love shopping for my future Grandson! :) I just wish I could afford to spend more$$

Lori and Robbie's babyshower is tomorrow and I am going to be there. I'm more excited over the Grandbaby as the days get closer. As people have always said to me,"grandparenthood" is more fun then "parenthood"....... Yeah! It's a beautiful addition to the family and this time I'm not the one having it! Hooray!

I may be moving this fall.Jesse and I have been talking about a probable plan for it. It would definately be for the best. Things could be looking up.

It is almost.....
It is almost Autumn! The air is drier, the leaves on the trees are about to all drop off. Though they are not as colorful as back east. The change of seasons is upon us.
Work is sort of ok. I haven't been able to start the computer class yet that I was so gung-ho about after I discovered it last month. I just couldn't get the book, and can't commit to attending a certain # of hours per week to try to get financial aid, around such a changing work schedule as I have seen.
It's also Patriot Day. The Anniversary of 9/11. The day still leaves me saddened. The I would never condone the burning of Korans like that preacher wanted to do today.
I'm giving another try at quitting smoking. There's a chance I will have to move. And a possible solution will be to move in with Jess. But absolutely I must stop smoking to be able to do that. And so, my brain is a little scrambled today from nicotine withdrawal.

I'm back to work now. And have gone to an orientation for the class/program I have expressed interest in for the last few weeks. I have been very jazzed about that since I wwent 2 days ago. It looks perfect for what I was looking for.

I supppose I'm having a slightly better day today. I'm still worried about many things however.
I got a lot of clutter cleared out of my place over the last 3 days. I suppose it's not too late for spring cleaning!
I'm thankful for a big favor that I heard about yesterday. People's act of kindness will not go unrewarded!
Wish I could get the darn song "Eye of the Tiger" out of my mind.

I'm feeling better, though I still have lots of more time off for sick leave.
I decided to use some of this time to try to quit smoking again. This week the pain from surgery has subsided and I am relatively free of some of the stressors (like work) that were making it difficult to quit.
I heard my oldest was in a car accident recently. I think it's a miracle she and baby are ok!
I got the munchies from nicotine withdrawal....maybe pizza for dinner tonnight would be good!

I am having a very difficult time right now trying to recoup lost wages from my sick-time last month. Of course I have no seniority at work, nothing to help there. I hope things are better next week for me.

week of pain
Oh My Dearest God! I have been in pain all week trying to heal from my surgery last Friday. It's been a week now, I have 2 weeks off from work, which will hurt my finances a lot.
I have had one very important thing to do each day this week however, so I haven't really spent all this time at home feeling sorry for myself. I just limited my "out of apartment trips to no more then a couple of hours.
What's really bad: this may have been the first of 3 surgeries I will face in a pretty short amount of time. I have questioned the timing of the next one, before Memorial Day even....like "will my body heal enough by then to proceed with the next" or should it be delayed for anothe couple of weeks?

Current Mood: sore

I like good news too
Hey! I learned something last week that I am not permitted to post online. That part is cool. but I am excited to learn about it. After I found out about it, I went off to work later that day and had one of the best days of this year so far!
I am enjoying a day off today. I have many hours at work this week and just need to relax and do at least some of the things I like to do.
