The Day Moves On.... [23 Apr 2003|02:39pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]
[ music | A Case Of You...Joanie Mitchell ]

My Day is moving on.... It's been a pretty good one though. Of course, I have to go to work still, that could change it all. I've been doing a lot of thinking this afternoon about what kind of changes I would like to make in my life. There are so many things I would like to change. I think I need to set some realistic goals though. Just a couple and when I reach those maybe set some more. Little by Little making all the changes I would like to make. Sounds simple but I know its going to be hard. Everything worth having is. I work really hard for everything I have and am very grateful. I am a realist. I am a Mother. I am a Wife. I am me.

What Next? [23 Apr 2003|01:06pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]
[ music | Faithfully....Journey ]

I just got home. Took my munchkin to the park. Really nice local park with a track that runs all the way around the lake. 5 different playgrounds all around it. So, We walked and walked. The whole way around 3 times. Stopping at a few of the play areas and letting him run and jump and burn some energy. He's wore out. Maybe he will take a good nap or even head to bed a little earlier tonight. He's been wanting to stay up later the past few nights. Little Monkey. He is why I have to have more energy. He is the best exercise I will ever get. It felt good to walk though. It's been raining so much lately or we have to be different places.... I never get to do the walking thing. He had a good time and I had a great time watching him have his good time... He is the light in all of my darkness. He makes everything seem so trivial. He is 4 years old. I don't know what the last 4 years would have been like without him. I can't imagine and I don't think that I really want to. All I know is that I am making a lot of changes and most of them are because of him. My husband and my son (My guys). Lights of my Life......

A few of Rhiannon's Favorite Quotes...... [23 Apr 2003|09:35am]
[ mood | creative ]
[ music | At Last..... Etta James ]

She walks in beauty like the night of Cloudless Climes and Starry Skies; And all thats best of dark and bright meet in her aspect and her eyes. ~Lord Byron

The woman is an angel... The woman is a nightingale... Which captivates any soul with her song. The woman is the sanctuary in front of which we subdue. ~Victor Hugo

I have heard the winds whispering song, and know the mysteries held in seas. I have felt the fire within the spirit and know when the Earth calls to me. ~Jarien Wolf

If when the moon is full and bright... You walk the forest deep... When other folk are in their beds... Adream and fast asleep... You hear the sound of tinkling bells and flowers softly ringing... Tis but the song of fairie folk in the ring asinging.

I have lost my mind... I don't know... In what it is lost... Or why it is in such bliss. ~Song of Gopal

Time To Get My Butt In Gear.... [22 Apr 2003|03:01pm]
[ mood | determined ]
[ music | Crystal....Stevie Nicks ]

I was dieting for a while. Lost 70 pounds. I gained back a little but not a whole lot. Kind of just maintained where I was. Too much emotional eating. Boredom. Thyroid problems. Anyway, I found out last week that my Thyroid TSH level is normal again. No more tweeking my meds. This is a huge step forward. Now dieting can change. I was on a kind of stand-by diet. Now that my levels are normal I can step it up. I'm not as tired as I was. Around 3:00 pm everyday my energy level would just crash. Considering that I work nights that was really bad. I started doing Yoga and Pilates. Lots of stretching exercises. Controlled Breathing is amazing. I am 10 times more flexible now than I have ever been. Considering that I still have more weight I want to lose, I will be much more flexible. My energy level is much higher. I am taking vitamins and a natural booster. I have changed my eating habits and exercise more frequently. I threw my scale out months ago. I guess I need to get one so I can start checking my progress. I am more determined than I have ever been to change my Health. I am excited about what the future holds for me. It's time to do some new things for me. My attitude needs some tweeking, too. Good thing that I have that tweeking thing down pat!

Making Plans..... [22 Apr 2003|02:10pm]
Memorial Day is coming up pretty fast. We (my husband, my son and myself) have decided to spend the Holiday with my parents camping. I am a Serious Planner. I plan everything that I know about in advance. By that I mean trips and such. My 5th wedding anniversary is a few days after that. So, we have decided to work them in together. Too much to plan. I am one of those people who HATES to get where you are going and figure out that you forgot something. And believe me, when you have a Toddler, you are not allowed to forget anything! That special stuffed animal, favorite pillow, etc. My husband and I, when we were dating, went to the same place that we will be going to. Its a tiny little town in Indiana named Nashville. Everyone from Indiana calls it "Little Nashville". It's very rustic. Basicaly 6 streets covered in every kind of shop you can think of. Bed and Breakfasts everywhere. It's very close to Brown County. There is a huge State Park there. Thats where we will be camping. My husband and Dad will spend lots of time fishing. My Mom and son and I will spend lots of time playing. He is so excited. He asks me everyday if it is time to go camping yet. I went and bought some special outdoor toys for him to take. I hid them in a closet so he won't want them. That way, when we get there, they will be New and Exciting to him. Keeps his interest better. Anyway, Packing List, Check List, Grocery List, etc...... Me the Psycho Planner!! Back to my lists!

A New Baby! [22 Apr 2003|11:58am]
[ mood | happy ]
[ music | Rhiannon...Fleetwood Mac ]

My Brother-in-law and his wife had their baby lastnight. A beautiful redheaded, little girl. Tiny little thing. They have been kind of lost. I hope that she is what will help them find the way. So, I am an Aunt for the first time. Since this is the one and only time she will get pregnant, I guess it is now up to my Brother to make me Aunt again. *Grin* I will believe that one when I see it. My Brother-in-Law is a Great Uncle. He just eats it up. He always got to hand him back to me though. Now it's my turn! She is going to turn his life upside down. He has NO IDEA! He is going to make an amazing dad. She will be Daddy's Little Girl. I am very Happy for them.
