Moving forward.

That's the key. Always make forward progress even if it is symbolic progress. I have done that for the last 3 days and it feels good.

You know, this probably sounds stupid but sometimes I can be slow. When I do what I need to do everyday I feel incredible in all areas of my life. For instance, I really, really, really want to lose weight. In order to do that I need to eat right and exercise. Well, when I exercise each day I feel good and that bleeds over into my work life and I get more efficient at work. It will also bleed into my home life and I will handle the mail the minute I get it rather than letting it pile up on my desk. Does this make any sense at all??? I guess what those folks were saying is true, if you do a little bit every day it will build and build.

Anyway, I've been moving towards my dream a little bit everyday. As a result I'm sleeping better, not stressing at all, eating well, and getting my workouts in. Life is good.

Hope everyone is having a good…

Here's something you don't hear often.

I was watching Oprah yesterday..... Yeah, I don't say that much. I like Oprah and I think she is definitely someone to be admired and she makes a great role model, I just don't agree with some of her views. She loves BarackObama and that is really scary. Anyway, I was watching her show yesterday and the guests she had on were saying how you can live your perfect life. One lady had a great example that really resonated with me. She said, if you place an order in a restaurant you fully expect to receive the food just as you ordered it right. Well, the universe works like that. You say you have a crappy life and guess what, you just placed an order for a crappy life. This is something I've always believed in. I have always been absolutely positive that if you think it it will happen. And when I practice that in a positive manner it works every single time. The human mind is the most powerful thing we have.

So while watching this show yesterday it suddenly hit me, I…

Okay, okay.

The previous post was directed at someone in particular. It was supposed to rattle their cage but they refused to take the bait. Darn, it would have been good too. I spoke with them on the phone and they absolutely refused to get involved in that - bastards!!!!

Just for the record, I don't really care if they take the space shuttle back and forth. Knowing what it's like when "dignitaries" end up on the ground, the traffic disruption and overall agony, I'm all for keeping them in the air and out of the way.

Now, if we could just figure out a way to keep them there..........

This is just wrong!!

I do not care who you are, Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Green Party, this is wrong. Do congress folks really need planes with catered food and an open bar??? Is this a good, prudent use of our tax dollars??? Can they not travel back and forth on smaller, more efficient planes??? They want us to cut back on the use of fossil fuels yet they will jet across the country in one of these polluters. 1 cross-country trip in a private plane uses more gas and generates more pollution then my 4 cylinder does in 1 year. If you want to get serious about global warming here is a good place to start.

What you do speaks so loudly I can't hear what you say.

I figured it out.

You can put your e-mail address back in your comments in new blogger (not beta!!). Go to the dashboard and "Edit Profile" The 3rd item down says "Show my email address" Check that and your return e-mail address will show up when you leave a comment. Now we talk again!!!! No more comments going out and getting lost in cyberspace. Yeah!!!!

Is it Wednesday already?????

A lot has happened this week. Unfortunately none of it has been working out. My lower back is really sore. It feels like I've worked it too much (I haven't) and is just sore. Also, my plantar is acting up really bad. I've decided to rest. I'm doing easy things, walking, stretching, etc. No running or swimming or weight training. I also have this weird burning sensation in my outer right hip. It feels like it's at the attachment point of the IT band and since I've had trouble with that IT band before, I'm guessing that's the problem. I could go to the doc but that would take the fun out of self diagnosis :) For my first marathon I had to take 800mg ibuprofen repeatedly just to get through the marathon (luckily years of drinking have destroyed my liver so I'm not worried;).

On the neighbor front ( hereafter referred to as the murdering scum bastard (MSB)), I've spoken to the police and attorney general's office about him. The polic…

Well, it's been a weekend.

Adjusting to a new animal in the house is never easy. When that animal is a bird that makes a lot of noise and drives one of the other animals crazy, it's even harder. Then add into the mix that the animal is 10 years old, has had 2 previous homes and really wants to go back to last home. It makes for a challenging weekend.

The bird will take time to adjust to a new home. Also, being a Moluccan Cockatoo, she is loud. Luckily it's not constant. She generally gets loudest around 6-6:30 p.m. When she's done she pretty much settles down and gets ready for sleep. But it's an exciting 1/2 hour or so.

On a really bad note, my neighbor has been released from jail. We saw him over there last night. I haven't seen him at all today but he was definitely there last night. We spotted him as we were going out last night. Then when we came home, he was on the street talking to someone and he turned and stared at us as we pulled in. I'm sure he knows it was us that turn…
