note to self....get out of yourself

Today is to be let it be written, so let it be done!! I am hanging tough. Made good food choices and kicked butt walking this morning. I sweat my ASS OFF in this heat and humidity. Feels so good!

Even though yesterday was hard, and it was hard, I did not resort to food to deal. I cleaned! It worked wonders. It makes me feel so much better when things are neat and tidy. Plus it feels good to accompish something and see the results right away.

I also have been worried about my finances. I lost my part time income at the 1st of the year, and I was doing ok till my power bill more then double this summer and gas went up too. Anyway, good news! I got another P/T job. Taking care of an elderly man in his home a few days a week. It will be a geat P/T job. It won't make up for all the money I lost, but it totally will help me out. I love old people and the meaner they are the more I like! They are usually so grateful for all you do for them.

Also, I am picking up my 3 year old grandson this evening for some swimming, a sleep over and then a movie tomorrow morning.

I really needed to get out of myself. When I am consume with self, I AM MISERABLE!!! (note to

So have a great weekend, what ever you do......stick it out thru the tough times and you will be rewarded...........keep the mood and the food real

P.S. I just finished reading I Am The Mesenger by Markus Zusak......SO GOOD!!! I highly Recomend this sweet story.


  1. Great news on the new P/T job - am similarly worried about finances too. May have to seriously consider downsizing if no extra pay comes my way soon.

    I volunteer with the elderly and believe me, I get more out of them, than they get out of me - it is always a hoot! Mind you, they do want to feed you, round these parts, lol!

    Keep that chin up, you are doing brilliantly!

  2. Keep on keeping on. You are doing great!

  3. That "get out of yourself" is so good - thanks for the reminder! Glad you got a p/t job - as our electric bill triples in the summer, I can appreciate the need for mo' money!!!

    Hope you have a wonderful time with your grandson!

  4. Helping seniors is a good thing and it well help with the finances for sure.

  5. Good going! You know what works for you and do it.

    Congrats on finding the part-time job. That is so honorable. The elderly are wonderful, aren't they?

    Enjoy your grandson! =)

  6. If you like 'em old and mean, I oughta introduce you to my dad, Horace.

  7. Taking care of people is a humble, yet honest way to earn a living. And you really do earn EVERY cent of it!

  8. You are so right, when you become consumed with yourself, you do become miserable! And I do that a lot! I'm glad you found a part time job and fun with your grandson tonight!

  9. You are doing so well. I am so proud of you. Wish I could go to the movies too. Hope you have a great weekend!

  10. Yay on the job. Bills going up are frickin' sucky. Totally felt that the last couple of months!

    I hope your friday was awesome the whole day. (sorry i came late)


Tell me what you think!
