Hold Onto Your Butt!!

Hope everyone's weekend was good.  I had a great weekend.  I hit the all day sale at Macy's.  Found 2 new bras.  I so needed them.  So I go them.  I decided I needed some dressy flats for an office job or for church.  Found 3 cute pairs at Target on clearance, bought those.  It's been a long time since I spent a penny on myself, it felt good.  Saturday morning I went to the Mormon temple just in time for the Spanish session.  I was so glad I did.  I took the translator headphones, but turned it way down so I could listen in both languages.  It was great.  I really felt the spirit and left feeling joyful.  I went for a long walk both mornings.  Listen to some wonderful podcasts. 

Then Saturday after shopping my old lady hoarder friend called and wanted to go to the movie.  She paid my way to see The Artist.  I didn't like it.  Too long.  Too boring.  The man in the lead is very handsome and his smile will take your breath away, but that's just not enough.  The story was very" A Star Born."  I called mys sister on the way to Macy's and we visited.  I called my niece (her daughter) and told her I missed her and to be good.  My one friend that has been having problems OD'ed last week, just about died.  She is 40 years old with an 18 year old daughter.  It's sad.  I rarely talk to her, but when something big happens she always calls me.  Wish she would have called BEFORE she used,  I worry that my niece will think she can do it one more time.  That's when people die, they use after being clean for a while.  I did my best to warn her, so that all I can do.  I will say it one more time, I really will take my problems, any day of the week.  Really! 

My food was just ok.  Didn't eat anything processed.  Fruits and veggies.  Had roast and veggies and salad last night at my friend's "break the fast' dinner.  Mormons do that once a month.  We fast for 2 meals and then give the money we would have spent on the meals to feed those in need.  I don't do it every month, but I do try, and always give money whether I fast or not.  My bishop thinks he found me a job!!  I am going to call the man this morning and get set up.  I love my church!!  I know I said that before, but I do.  I am feeling so much better emotionally.  I am glad I just held onto my butt and waited for things to turn around.  Things always turn around.  If you just have faith and press forward.  Another thing that is a must is that I have to believe in yourself.  Since I was having a hard time doing that I needed people in my life to remind me.  Luckily I have tons of people IRL to remind me, forcefully!!

Spanish home work is done!  I had to write an essay on Mis Familia.  I can talk about them all the live long day :)  My speech is on them also.  I had a friend help me write it then she spoke it into my phone voice recorder.  Practice Practice Practice!  I am going to do research on the McDonaldlization of Society.  I am not understanding as well as the other topics.  Essay is due Thursday, and Thursday is the end of Sociology.  I am going to take a race and gender class with the same teacher in the fall.  He is an awesome teacher.

Here's to a great week, that doesn't go by too fast......seems that time is just flying by!!

Keep the mood and the food real..........................


  1. Have a great week, Dana. Got my fingers crossed for the job...

  2. This time of the year, the sales are worth going to! Also, I agree with you about "The Artist." While it was somewhat interesting, it certainly was not best movie caliber. Sorry about your friend, and I hope she finds recovery. Best to you on the job prospect...have a great week!

  3. You are so much right that we have to believe...I believe in God however I see that some people make fun of me when I say that.

    I had a good feeling about not going to see The Artist, now after your comment I will not go for sure ;-)

    Have a wonderful week,

  4. I'll be thinking about you all the time!

  5. not eating anything processed is GREAT.
    Uh IMO and all :)

  6. So happy to hear you're feeling better. It's true just hang on and keep thinking positive. So happy about the job for you hope it works out. Glad you got yourself a few things too :) *hugs*
