3+ months is a long time

Where do I even begin…
I took the summer off to work on a new house. Yep I am moving again. God works in mysterious ways. Life is good.
School started last week. Going to be an inserting semester. Really a writing intense time and I am good with that my brain needs a challenge and I am up for that challenge.
I was looking thru the school newspaper and my name is there. I made the deans list last semester! So life is getting on track. Thank God!
So what do I want to accomplish the next month.
I want to be moved in by the end of Sept.
Going to keep my grades up and try to stay ahead of the game.
Get on a schedule
Try out my listening skills.
Read the paper every Sunday
Look for a internship
Ride my bike more
Learn to just be
That’s a good start. What will happen…..we will see!
Stay tuned!

Was a great day. Treats, walks, playing catch, just some of the things we did!
I love having Spud around to play with!
Looks like I was on Tv at Aunt Kikis house. They were watching old movies of my younger years.

Fun times!
Wonder what were gonna do tomorrow?

Jan 18 the Grocery Store

Ok so they put the health fruit and veggies in the front of the store that is great…..Works well for me however You look in their ad and there is junk food in it.  You round the corner and instead of healthy choses you find sugar and carbohydrates that you don’t need to put in your pie hole.  The schools have takin the cookie away from the kids and the soda pop. That is a good thing but…..To buy juice for the child to drink costs twice as much.  WTH?  Eat more fresh veggies and leaner cuts of meat….Ok then lean some of the money off of these products.  Send out coupons that will encourage people to eat better instead of buy 2 for a better deal.  Why would the avg 2 person household need to buy two of anything really.  Stock up for a rainy day I suppose but why.  We never know what we are going too eat till its dinner time on most nights.

The good news is I only spent 137 dollars at the grocery and I did by fresh veggies and I did get some vegetarian dishes for my partner in crime but in the grand scheme of things I spent too much and I dint buy really any junk food.  A bag of veggie chips is the worse thing I can remember buying and she may or may not eat those I can’t remember.

I did learn that taking a list helps cut down the crap I use to buy.  Also reminds me to use my coupons!!!!!

I guess what I am trying to say is….Eating healthy should not cost more.  Mrs Obama where are you helping the avg person get healthy.  Its cheaper to buy fattening foods.  At least in the spring and summer I can grow my own veggies…..Thank god!

Have a great day everyone!

Tomorrow I think I am going to try Yoga!

What Else I think today

I got new glasses yesterday.  Normally that be a big deal but I am amazed at the fact that I can actually see better.  I knew I needed readers, I do a lot of computer and close up work but I also had to get a bit of help with my distance.  I can see things don’t get me wrong but, I can now see them clearly :0)  Didn’t even know this was a problem.

Had my first lab today.  Geology my old friend is back again.  This time with more historical things for me to learn.  Keeping finger crossed.  However I am going to need to get a smaller group.  One of the guys is great and the other two are just waiting for someone to give them the answer.  This could be bad.  First lab and only one question confused me.  That is progress being I didn’t get most of the last labs till the end :0)

Why don’t people talk in the elevator?  Is it because they have nothing to say or the fact that they think the other person really doesn’t care what they have to say.  I am a talker.  I talk to who ever when ever really.  Just in general stuff…what floor, have a good day.  I even say good morning to my fellow class mates as they com in the door to class.  I think this is a good thing and I am not going to change that.  Not one bit.  As a matter of fact I may even do it more :0)

I am really enjoying my picture a day assignment!  Mr P and I are making our rounds.  Thinking he may need to go on a vacation with someone…where should he go?

Well I am making tacos for dinner tonight.  Guess I should go get that ready!

I need to make me the change!  Make a difference!

Jan 10 What I Think

I have lived in Ohio my whole life.  I have traveled to many beautiful places and seen a lot of things.  What I can not understand is that here in Ohio the weather its self can change in a matter of days or even in minutes.  Last week we had snow and tomorrow it is going to be 63 degrees they say.  If that’s
not global warming I don’t know what it is.

I got to school this morning a bit earlier then expected so I got a better parking spot. Well I think it is.  We will see when I go to leave later.  Thursday is my long day but not as long as last semester.  I have my geology lab today.  These always help to explain the foreign language that the class seems to be speaking.  It is interesting to me to see how one minute I really don’t get it and the next a light bulb goes off and just like the big bang…..BAM!  We can only hope the Bam comes quick.

At home there are usually 2 dogs, Maggie and Luna.  They are visiting their other mother this week and it has been really quiet in the house.  Kinda creepy really.  I look forward to their return tomorrow.  They seem to keep things calm at the house.

I received a new potato head yesterday.  Kim and the kids got him for me.  He is a little tater.  Not sure what to name him yet but he is dressed like Elvis :0)  Of course they had bengal ones on sale at Kroger so I got one of those while I was there.  Maybe I need an intervention. Na he makes for a great blog.  If you havent checked it out you really should: www.mrpsadventures.wordpress.com

Guess I should find some breakfast before I get this party started …….LOL

Have a great day!

Jan 9 Homework and life

New Semester New Work :0(

It’s really not that bad yet but it has potential to be.  Just gotta stay on my game, I can do this right?  Right!

Last month I went to the eye doctor and found out I need bifocals.  Sign of getting old.  Or as I like to say staring at the computer way too much…lol  I picked them up today and I really can’t believe what a difference that they are making.  I can see the computer now up close instead of having to lean back…who knew.

Still not doing what I want with the water which is my own fault. Just need to do it.  I will get better and I will be stronger for me.  On the 21st I have a Doc appointment to get meds refilled so I went and had my blood drawn for a full panel of things.  I will have those results the first of next week.  Will be interesting to see where all my levels are.

Well Back to the homework I go!

Till next time….

Jan 8 First day of the semester

Today starts another semester which means the first week is crazy. Hard to find a place to park, a lot of new students that don’t know where things are, and the whole am I going to be the oldest in the class problem I seem to always have.
I arrived 2 hours early thank God or I would not have been able to park in the garage. If I can’t park near school I am not going to school. I know me.
I have already shared where a few buildings are with a few new people. Helping is good!
As far as the oldest in the class goes…As I look around its pretty close. We she see how the classes go. I do know that being older sometimes is better. I have life experience to go along with what ever topic there seems to be.
I am taking my second and last Geology class. 16 weeks of hell. then I can put that behind me. I am also taking a communication theory class. I should have taken this class first I would imagine but I didn’t so I will knock this one out. Most people know I could talk to a tree :0)
I have also been drawing a sacred path card everyday during the week. Today I drew the card of fertility. Seems the things I plant today will move forward with great reward as long as I keep feeding the ideas and want them to grow. Bring on the semester!
Ill let ya know how it goes!

Sunday Jan 6

Did better on my water intake yesterday. Was one glass short of my goal. Could have tried to chug it down but didn’t. You would think water would be easy to consume. I did however drink a liter of Dr Pepper. Too much salt I know. Did really good till I went to the party last night. Really need to use a glass and not drink out of the bottle. If the bottle sits there I drink it. So note to self…..Cary your glass and stop drinking out of the bottle. :0). Bum hoping I listen.

Did better eating yesterday. Need to get my proteins up but my carbs were lower. Gonna try and get my pie charts too look better.

So what are these pie charts? Well I have been keeping track of my food on an app on my touch. It’s called MyFitnessPal. Seems to be pretty accurate and has been fun to work with. They make an App for everything lol. The graph shows protein, carbs, and fat. I know I eat way to many carbs but….it is interesting to see just how much it all adds up too at the end of the day. Also been watching my vitamins. Started taking a multi vitamin. I’m not eating nearly enough stuff that has the daily recommended amounts. If I wanna give blood I need to get these numbers up :0)
So we will see what the day brings me today.

Let’s see what today brings!

Live well and drink water!
