Online Dating

Ok, so I bit the bullet and signed up for a dating website.  Never did I think I would but it is not that bad.  Honestly it is about all I have time for right now anyway.  So I signed up yesterday and already have a few people messaging me…which is cool.  I guess this is a great way to weed out the ones I would not deal with anyway instead of wasting time physically dating and being upset when they are not what you expected. 

Gift for the Ungiftable

There is always someone in the family who I can’t figure out what to get them for Christmas.  I am almost done with all of the shopping for the girls…one more online experience to go.  But what to get for this person has been bothering me for weeks…why?  Because she is the most unappreciative person, she seems to always have an issue with the gifts people give her and mind you she is an adult, not a spoiled little child.  Last year she was upset about a gift she got and I thought it was a cute gift, but the funny thing is she isn’t quiet about not liking the gifts.  She is very vocal about it, which drives me crazy…what happened to saying thank you and walking away?  The other issue I am having with giving this gift this year is that she still owes me a significant amount of money, so what do I do? 

I am getting her something, I just don’t know what she wants or likes at the moment so hmmm…

Almost Over

I love the holiday season, I just honestly HATE that they don’t allow us to enjoy one at a time.  Before we even carved our pumpkins the Christmas decorations were out.  Before we carved our turkey the damn Christmas music was on the radio…the stores opened for sales on Thanksgiving night…and the day after Thanksgiving when I was laid up on my sofa for the whole day watching TV (most enjoyable moments I have had in a while) I couldn’t even enjoy a lifetime movie because they were all Christmas movies and I refused to watch.  Now that it is December 1 I don’t mind hearing an occassional Christmas song and seeing lights up…

December already…seems like I just watched the ball drop welcoming in 2011, now we are getting ready to go cut our Christmas tree down so we can start celebrating.  I am happy and sad to see the end of another year…happy because I am healthy and have a great family, sad because its another year gone by and I am getting older, my girls are growing up so fast right before my eyes, its so crazy.  Now it is time to start thinking of new New Years resolutions for 2012, it is always difficult because it is hard to find things that actually are attainable, I don’t want to say I am going to stop cursing, because them someone does some asshole thing and there I am cursing again, I eat pretty healthy already so I don’t want to give up any foods, I don’t smoke, I drink socially (unless I am stressed I will have a glass of wine at the end of the day)…what can I resolve to do for 2012.  I can’t really make next year about me because I am a single parent…how selfish would that be, maybe I can resolve to travel more…lol that would mean I need to have disposable money (which I don’t have)…hmmm what could I resolve to do?

I have been focusing on  my health a lot this year and its good…I am very proud of myself…I lost 40lbs and have 8-10 more to go by December 31…so 31 days of ass kicking workouts and eating right.  Thank goodness I didn’t get crazy with Thanksgiving food…loved it but ate it (mac & cheese, turkey, greens, yams, stuffing, corn bread…I am getting hungry just thinking about it) and went right back to my salads 🙂  I dropped 2 pants sizes comfortably and I have gotten way more active than I ever had since high school.  I used to hate to sweat and now it doesn’t bother me so much at all…I am very proud of what I did for ME…

What are your resolution ideas?
