Calling All Dreamers

Standard

Good morning lovely people,

I’m coming to you live from Indianapolis, here on the Westside, at my job, at my desk…Yep, it’s as boring as it sounds, lol. Such a shame that I’m here in the middle of my work day, daydreaming about what I want to be when I grow up. Yes, never mind the fact that I’m 41 years old, I have two almost adult children, I’ve been married and divorced, and I work a full-time job as a pharmacy technician. But that’s not my dream job, I mean it pays the bills, barely, but I have a dream of being my own boss one day. Seriously, I know that sounds like most Americans, but really folks, I think I deserve it after all of these years. I mean considering that I didn’t finish college and I’ve been a single mom for years before I got married. I have worked hard all my adult life starting at 14 and I’ve been in so many different lines of work I can’t even count all of the jobs I’ve had. I mean I could try but it would be hilarious and a bit embarrassing. Too bad I couldn’t get college credit for every different job I’ve had. I’ve worked as a waitress, in clothing stores, in hospitals, in drugstores, in the manufacturing field (making airplane engines and the automobile industry believe or not). I mean, I’m not flighty or unable to hold down a job, but I’m a jack-of-all-trades, really, if you teach me something once, I’ll pick it up quickly and I’ll be the best at it. But, with being a single mom for so many years, I went wherever the best paying job with the best health insurance would have me.

So with that being said, I’ve learned over the years, that I’m very creative and I can learn just about anything. I would like to take that gift and use it to my own advantage. I love baking, sewing, and quilting, and I would love to own my own rustic little shop where I can do all of these things all day and get paid for it. Sounds great!!! One day, I’ll make it happen. Don’t mind me, just rambling on, hoping and wishing, and dreaming.

You all have a great day,

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:9, 10 ESV)

Still on Track

Standard

Good morning lovely people,

I hope everyone’s staying out of the snow and cold today. We won’t be so lucky because we’re at below freezing temperatures. But, hey, us Hoosiers are used to the “50 shades of Winter”, next week we’ll back up to 30’s and 40’s and we’ll swear it’s spring time, lol. I can’t wait, then I can get my truck washed!!! Well, I’ve been slacking here as far as writing my blog posts because I’m a slacker, no excuses. I worked out Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday of last week, which makes that gym days 19-21, so I’m still on track and still focused. I’m really trying to go more days out of the week, but with this weather it’s been so hard to even go to work, let alone, to the gym. But, at least I’m making it 3 times a week, which is more than I did last year, and the year before that, and the year before that. That’s how I got into this fat mess as it is, so I’ll be happy with 3 times a week. I can also be proud of the fact that I’ve been working out 9 weeks now!!!! I’ve only lost 9.3 pounds, but I’m doing it the right, healthy way, and I can be proud of that. NO fad diets, no diet pills, no starving myself, all the good stuff for me folks from here on out.

I will say that I did get back on one of my blood pressure pills, because I’m concerned, that my blood pressure isn’t going down, it’s the same pre-hypertension stage that’s it’s been but it hasn’t been going up, but I thought that if I changed my diet and started exercising that it would go down, but it hasn’t budged, so I’ll do the right thing and keep up with my Lifestyle change and maybe I can get off of the meds when I’ve lost some more weight. I mean the last thing I want to do is have a heart attack on the elliptical. Sometimes I try to forget that I’m 41 years old and I have a family history of heart disease, so I better stop playing around, huh?

So, no Valentine’s Day plans for me and my singledom lifestyle, lol. But, I will probably have to chauffer my daughter on her date, awkward right?? But, it’s all good. I’m truly enjoying this single life and I’m very content, maybe that’s what a bad marriage is good for, making you appreciate yourself and becoming a better you on your own. But, to all you couples out there enjoy Valentine’s Day, and remember, it’s the thought that counts.

Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. (Romans 12:9, 10 ESV)
