Praise!!! It's Friday!!!

This week was so long, I am not sure why, but it lasted a lifetime it seems. I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend, but unfortunately it will probably be alone. The hubs is most likely heading to the lake with his buddy and dad to check on the boat and help out with some work that needs to be done on his friend's lake house. I am glad that he is able to help them out, but I am going to be so bored. Especially if it snows like they predict, then I won't be leaving the house.

Speaking of the impending weather, if we get enough snow they will likely not go. It is wrong that I am praying for lots and lots of snow. I know! Shame on me!!!

If nothing else I know I will enjoy my weekend watching TV, snuggling with my pup, and dreaming of our trip to Mexico in 22 days!

Have a fun and safe weekend everyone. :)

Do You Ever................................

just feel so blah? That is how I have been feeling the last few days. I cannot really pinpoint any concrete reasons why (there are a few things I think about a lot but nothing serious). I am so distracted and just don't get excited about much.

Anyone else go through this? Maybe it's the weather. I don't want anyone feeling sorry for me, just want to know what helped you if you experienced this.

I've come to realize... I have writer's

I’ve come to realize that my job. . .is not all that bad, but goodness I would totally rock the whole stay at home wife thing, lol.

I’ve come to realize that when I’m driving. . .if I don't have music on I can drive myself crazy with all my "thinking."

I’ve come to realize that I need. . .8 hours of sleep, otherwise I am pretty much useless.

I’ve come to realize that I have lost. . .patience in people being rude. I used to be one of the most forgiving people I know, however now I give someone a few chances and then pretty much decide it's not worth my frustration. I know this sounds harsh, but it is also not cool to walk all over someone. I guess I need to find a happy medium...

I’ve come to realize that I hate it when. . .I can't concentrate. I have been having this issue not sure what is wrong with me. ADD?

I’ve come to realize that money. . .is the root of all evil. People spend their lives attaining it or things and not really living. It's sad and we are all guiltly at one time or another.

I’ve come to realize that certain people. . .will only think about themselves. It's unfortunate, but I cannot change them, they must want to change.

I’ve come to realize that I’ll always. . .be late. "It is my thing." It also drives my husband crazy. Whoops!

I’ve come to realize that my sibling(s). . .are not only my sisters but my best friends.

I’ve come to realize that my mom. . .is the most selfless person I know. She has always given and never expected anything in return. It's funny when one day it all hits you and you realize what your mom has done for you. It amazes me, she amazes!

I’ve come to realize that my cell phone. . .is with me always. If it is not available I freak out and feel lost.

I’ve come to realize that when I woke up this morning. . .that I should have went to bed earlier.

I’ve come to realize that last night before I went to sleep. . .that my husband is worlds fastest fall "asleeper" and I am the slowest, grr.

I’ve come to realize that right now I am thinking. . .how much stuff I have to do at home this evening, but instead I am going to the hospital to meet my best friend's new baby girl Lillian.

I’ve come to realize that my dad. . .is the hardest working person I know, seriously.

I’ve come to realize that when I get on Facebook. . .that I can spend hours on it and not really remember what I did.

I’ve come to realize that today. . .is hump day. Just 2 more work days till the weekend.

I’ve come to realize that tonight. . .I will meet Lillian. 2 of the 4 besties now are mommies. So happy for them!

I’ve come to realize that tomorrow. . .is payday!

I’ve come to realize that I really want to . . .just come home from work one night and do nothing, nothing at all.

I’ve come to realize that life. . .has a funny way of working out and so far I am fine with how it has worked out.

I’ve come to realize that this weekend. . .is in 2 days, but they are never long enough, even when it is long.

I’ve come to realize that my friends. . .are numerous, but if I am being honest I would only consider a few of them "true" friends. This may seem mean, but as I get older I realize there are those friends that you enjoy catching up with and hanging out with, but there are those "true" friends that you can go to whenever times are hard and they are the first you tell when times are great.

I’ve come to realize that this year. . .will be a year of emotions for me.

I’ve come to realize that my husband. . .makes my heart smile and is a really good cuddler. :)

I’ve come to realize that maybe I should. . . .revist my NY resolutions weekly, I am easily distracted. Again this ADD thing.

I’ve come to realize that I love. . .reading, it is so relaxing.

I’ve come to realize that I don’t understand. . .a lot of things.

I’ve come to realize my past. . .made me am who I am, but I can still choose who I want to be to be today and tomorrow.

I’ve come to realize that parties. . .are not as much fun as they were before. I am more of a low key kinda girl. I really have to be in the mood for a party.

I’ve come to realize that I’m totally terrified. . .of losing my mom and my husband. It is not that everyone else is not important, but I know that I would be okay. It is hard to imagine my life without these two.

I’ve come to realize that my life. . .is my own and I am the only one that can decide what I will make of it, with the help of God of course.

My 10 for 2010

Every year I make some new year's resolutions and maybe keep one or two of them. This year I am bound and determined to succeed. I thought that in order to succeed I will need to be specific in exactly what I want to accomplish. So here they are in no particular order.

1. I love to read, but rarely get the free time to do so, but this year I would like to read the Old Testament front to back by the end of the year.

2. Be a better wife. I am by no means an awful one, but I do admit that if I am having a bad day I usually take it out on him. Not cool I know. :( He does not know about this one, but I will be checking in with him (nonchalantly) periodically on how I am doing. He is always honest with me so this one should be easy to gauge. To help myself I have started reading "The Power of a Praying Wife" and also purchased "Created to Be His Help Meet" and the journal to go with it. I will start these after I finished reading the first.

3. Eat healthy. I do this for the most part, especially at breakfast and lunch, but my biggest pitfall is dinner. I get it in my head that I have been "good" all day so I should get to have whatever I want for dinner. I think dieting has done this to me. I deprive myself of things that I like and then finally just pig out on them. So my plan now is to eat what I want but in moderation. I will just aim to eat balanced meals and snacks throughout the day and watch my portions. This one will be the most difficult to measure, but it goes hand in hand with # 4.

4. Lose weight. This is one I have every year and I usually do, but always gain it back. I would like to lose 10 pounds by 5/1/10 and keep it off.

5. Work out. I still cannot figure out why I do not do this consistently cause I actually enjoy the way I feel after I do it (except for the whole out of breath thing lol). I would like to get to where I work out 3 times a week on a consistent week to week basis. I plan to use a journal to monitor this. This one will also help with #4.

5. Pay off debt. I have tallied up all our bills and set a plan to have everything (besides our cars and house) paid off by the end of the summer. This is one my hubs and I both have as a resolution. We want to be in a position once we have decided to have children that I can stay home or at least work part time if that is what we decide is best.

6. Spend less money! I plan to keep a file of what I spend money on, it seems all the little things add up to a lot. So I am going to find out what those are and weed as much of it out as possible. This one is not entirely measurable, but will reflect in # 7.

7. Save! This one should happen if I complete # 5 and succeed with # 6. I want to have $10K saved by the end of 2010.

8. Continue building my relationship with God. I would like to spend more time with him each day. This one is not exactly measurable, but will certainly be noticeable to me.

9. Stay in touch with friends. I am lucky that my friends and I can pick up where we left off, but we usually do go awhile without talking. This is especially true with my high school friends. They are still some of my best friends, but we live further apart so we don't get the time together that we once took for granted. My goal is to talk to at least two of my friends weekly. It does not have to be a long call, but anything time will allow. This also includes family that I don't talk to as much since I have moved to the MO side.

10. Get in to work early. Sounds simple I know, but I have a horrible time getting up in the morning. The snooze button is my best friend. I currently get in to work between 8 and 8:30. By June I would like to get in the office by 7 every morning. This will require 8 hours of sleep so I will need to start getting to bed by 9:30 or 10 at the latest.

So here is my 10 for 10. Wish me luck!

Hope you all have a blessed and healthy 2010!!!!!
