Not Giving Up....EVER

My sister sent a CD with some more wedding pics. This is my absolute fave. It reminds me of what a wonderful night that was. Things are going great. I have been super tired the past couple of days. Too many 2:30 wake ups. Then can't fall back to sleep. Slept till 6:30 this morning. Heaven. I have been eating right and walking walking walking. Need to up the H2O. It's getting hot here. 94 degrees the other day. It seems so weird that it's snowing in some areas. My sister that lives in Tokyo will be coming for a 2 week visit. Her MIL passed away. It was a blessing. I think we might take a road trip to Utah to visit my other sister. I love a road trip! Nothing new on the job front. I just keep looking. And praying. My past haunts me when it comes to background checks. So my selection is limited. I never had a problem finding a job before. With the economy the way it is, it's much harder. There are too many other applicants that don't have a criminal background. I have never had the money to get my charges squashed. It's a couple $1000. It never really mattered, cause like I said, I could always find a job. Time to get to work on that. Still feeling positive. Something will happen for me. I just need to stay positive and do the next right thing. Giving up is not an option. EVER. Today will be spent here It is my church's world wide General Conference. Our church leaders give uplifting messages and instruction for a better life. I encourage you to take a look. You can watch anytime in the archives. I always come away from listening to Conference renewed and with fresh resolve to be a better person. Laced up the shoes and I am going to take a walk. Have a good Sunday. Keep the mood and the food real.................


  1. Hope you have a wonderful day, Dana. Pebbles' MIL feels the same way about the General Conference.

    I always admire your positive attitude. You are an inspiration and you are right - giving up is never an option.

    Your pending road trip with your sisters sounds like so much fun. What a great thing to look forward to!

    That photo is adorable!

  2. What a lovely picture - really captures not only the moment, but your relationship with your son. So sweet! :)

  3. Onward and downward, eh!? Yay!
    Very cute pic!

  4. and I love the sentence SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN FOR ME.

    so so so frequently that has been my mantra.



  5. How sweet is that photo - I love it!

    I think 2:30 must be the witching hour. I swear to you that is when I wake up almost every night, no matter what time I've gone to bed. Makes for a hard go when I'm trying to get up at 4:15 so I can get a run in. Here's to both of us getting some better sleep!


Tell me what you think!
