I sorta failed - but that won't stop me!

Well I failed mini goal #1 - to post everyday. So it's going to just stay a mini goal!

As for #2, I sort of completed it - I bought lots of fruit and ate mostly raw for the week (except for this weekend when I was at the Lakes with the family and we ate out) so I didn't have much package waste...but I did start cleaning out cupboards and stuff in an attempt to de-clutter and had some stuff that just had to go.

And #3, yep, finally de-furred the legs...come to think of it, I'm a bit cold...

So for this week:

#1 continue de-cluttering and sell as much stuff as I can. I'm saving for a trip for my good friend Nikki's 30th birthday to Vegas. I'm hoping I can come up with all the cash using only "extra" sources of income. I also like the feeling of not storing stuff I don't need/use - especially if it's something someone else can use - it's a win win situation!

#2 keep eating mostly raw / vegetarian. I feel really energetic, my skin has been much clearer, I get to eat a lot more in quantity, which makes me mentally and phsically feel fuller and helps with the fact that I eat when I'm bored. I definately don't feel guilty eating 2 or 3 pieces of fruit - where as 2 or 3 candy bars....EEK! I've even noticed that meat doesn't sound very good...and it's so much more work to prepare!

#3 keep staying positive! I've finally begun to leave work at work...a huge accomplishment for me. this past week actually wasn't all that bad. Sure I had a lot to do, and had a lot of stress, but I've been telling myself I am only one person, and if I know I am working as hard as I can, that is all that matters! If someone is upset with me because I didn't get everything done, or didn't do it how they wanted me to, then I've been asking for their help. I delegated a number of tedious projects onto others, and found they quit hounding me and I was able to get the more important things done in a timely manner and with better quality. I still really want to be doing something else, something more important that will actually leave a lasting impact on someone's life, but I will just have to keep searching and waiting for that "thing" to come to me!

#4 learn a new song on the piano. I bought a beautiful Mason & Hamlin baby grand - one worth FAR more than I paid...and I plunk here and there, but I've forgotten many of the classical songs I used to have memorized. I did learn a Michael W. Smith song and have been playing and singing's so relaxing and makes me so happy to listen and play and sing. I've got lots of lyrics jotted down too, so I'd really like to get some music to them. I always dream about recording some of my stuff, and sometimes I feel like I'm wasting good talent by not just taking the time to do it...even if it's just for personal satisfaction.


  1. Great stuff here, Kiddo!!

    Happy you've got the work thing figured out, there is nothing more important than learning how to leave work at work.

    I'm down with the veggie thing and find your attempts at quasi-veggieheadism to be quite admirable. I am in dire need of a system that gets me to eat more veggies. So major props!

    I'm both intrigued and scared to imagine what could happen if you were left to your own devices in Las Vegas. Although I do believe it will be memorable--assuming you can remember any of it that is.

    Keep the writing coming, sporadic or not...I like it.

out of the loop...

OK, so I'm obviously a little bit behind on the whole which-singer-did-something-crazy-on-tv-that-is-getting-them-shunned-by-everyone thing....even though I'm certain someone else has done worse.

So I come across an article about all of Adam Lambert's upcoming tv appearances being cancelled. So I do a little googling and see that Adam Lambert kissed a dude during his performance...and had some dude fake giving him a bj...among other questionable actions these were the two most talked about.

I'm here to say, what's the big flippity deal? Britney, Madonna & Christina made out on live tv, in a similar situation...and people thought it was the coolest dang thing since pre-wrapped sliced right there there is absolutely NO grounds for the kiss to be any big deal. Besides, I saw the pictures, and I'm not completly convinced the keyboard player was in fact male.

As for the fake bj, have you ever watched ANY of Britney's performances? The entire t…

snow, seriously? I hate winter.

It has been 2 months and 3 days since I posted last. I suck at life.
But that's beside the point, because I'm posting now. And you know what is happening now, that sucks even more than's snowing. It is October 10 and it's flipping snowing.
I don't really remember ever seeing summer, let alone going through fall and now all of a sudden it's winter. I am seriously not ok with that.
I should have been a Mexican. So I could live in the carribean part of Mexico, where it's warm all the time, and where cold is 60ish degrees. There's hurricanes and sharks and shit, but it's warm.

In other's snowing. And it's seriously making me depressed.
That and it's 2:42 a.m. and I have this strange desire to clean out my closet. I pretty much feel like a lunatic at this point, but those 2 five hour energy shots I took are really working....quite well in fact....
I'm sure I'll be a little disgruteled in the "morning" w…

Customer Dis-service

It never ceases to amaze me how inconsiderate and/or un/mistrained and/or just plain stupid some people are.

My friend Nikki's kids had a birthday party this weekend. I asked Nikki what to get them, and we got to talking about how expensive the fancy birthday cakes are now-a-days. I had one of those moments where a light comes on and a chorus sings "AHHHAAA" in the background - I was trained how to make all those fancy cakes (and I did a pretty dang good job at it I might add) at Cold to save Nikki money and avoid her headaches by giving her kids some lame toy, I offered to make them the cakes they wanted.

I know how to bake, but I remembered that we used frozen sheet cakes at Cold Stone and they worked really well because they're level and dense and yummy. So I called Grocery Store with a Bakery #1. I won't use names to protect the identity and reputation of the rest of the store, which I've not had an issue with in the past...just the bakery.
