The angels in heaven are singing. I have done my victory dance. I think I deserve a dozen donuts or more. I have finally finished my thank you cards. Minus two whose addresses we don't have and perhaps a few people who we thought we sent one to but really didn't. But minus those few, I AM DONE.

And to any one that got one, if you read something really weird or there were words crossed out I apologize. I couldn't help but sound ridiculous or make mistakes because I am me and it only gets worse when I write a thousand thank you notes. They only serve as proof that I need to stick to the typed word where mistakes can be deleted and you can say stupid things without people knowing who you are. I take solace in the fact that most of these people wont care, they just want to be appreciated for their kindness. And I understand and appreciate that.

AHHH I AM DONE...minus those few...

p.s. doesn't hallelujah look strange capitalized? or is it just me?

Book Land

I have been in the land of books for the first time in a year and a half. Its been great but it definintly throws off my schedule a bit. Luckily, I have acquired so many new books I may be stuck in this land for a very long time.

If I Ruled The World

if there were no cars around you wouldn't have to stop at stop signs.

people would not be slow.

all dog owners would pick up their dog's crap while on a walk so the next person coming along doesn't step in it (no I have not had a recent experience with this, it's just always on my mind when I see a dog being walked).

the United States would have more holidays and be as lazy as Europe

to be continued as my plan for world domination is further developed....

For the First Time Ever

I read 50 pages in the matter of hours. I know it sounds pathetic to be so joyful about that but I am an extremely slow read. For example, with the last book I was reading, it took me about an hour just to read 10 pages. And it wasn't a hard book.

I kept having dreams last night that Jon and I would were sleeping in a classroom at church. And Jon kept letting people in right when we woke up. He was dressed normally. I was in my lingerie. During one of the dreams, around 5 random ladies came in at once to visit with me. I panicked and quickly wrapped myself in a blanket but nobody acted like they cared or even noticed. The weird part is that I dreamed different versions of this dream twice within hours I think and the longer they went the weirder they got. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME???

I am excited for this weekend. I might go thrift shopping just for the heck of it. Do you want to come and join me?

I majorly slid on the ice for the first time ever. Like did a donut sliding. It was scary. I almost just screwed work and went home.

Tell me something random....Whats on your mind today?

Personal Goal # 1 Completed

I finished my first goal of the year. It took me about three days, lots of pain, lots of reading, lots of organizing, and lots of deleting. But I think it will be well worth it as long as I can continually stay on top of my emails and not feel the need to keep them to "read later."

Come to find out though, I have a bit more work to do. I have a few folders made in the past that are about as messy as my main inbox was. But I have plenty of time for that and do not need to be in any rush to complete it. Plus, who knows what hidden treasures of past memories I will find in those folders.


I received an email today from Betty Crocker saying the following:
We inadvertently sent you a birthday wish email when it's not your birthday.
Since you are not eligible to enter the Betty Crocker Birthday Sweepstakes this month, we'd like you to enjoy this free digital magazine. Please accept our apologies.
So they felt bad and they gave me a freebie. Which is awesome except for that it's free for everybody. Just click here. You can't go wrong with a magazine all about soups.

Speaking of which I went back to the gym for the first time in forever. It felt amazing.

Also, I had a dream that I was in Hawaii and went to IHOP with some family and friends. They had a meal named after a local politician from my state and I wanted it but they were all out of it. Really random.

I Hate Pain and the Though of It

I have had my fair share of accidents, injuries, and near death experiences, but no experience stands out in my mind more than the time, many years back, that I was playing tag in the park with my siblings. My parents were both gone that Saturday afternoon doing various service and church related activities so we had to find a way to entertain ourselves and what better place to do that at than the park down the street. During the game I had the most brilliant idea to climb this really tall tree so that nobody could tag me, unless they worked extra hard to get me. I got up pretty high and was about to just chill in the tree when the branch I was on broke. Normally, with this tall of a tree, the resulting injuries of falling could have consisted of any of the following: broken bones, concussion, sprained back, or worse, a broken back, major trauma to the head, broken spine. Life about flashed before my eyes. But before I could majorly start screaming I landed on the branch a bit below me, which hurt like major heck but was not nearly as bad as falling all the way to the ground. The wounds I received were immensely easier to heal from.

I can not point out exactly when, but some years ago I developed a fear of....what do you think I have a fear of now???...not climbing nor of heights nor of trees, which would be the logical responses...but of getting back down from wherever I climb too. I have been known to get stuck on walls, on fences, and in trees. I fear falling. I did not develop this fear right after the incident. I was still young, stupid, and wanted to have fun. But it did eventually come and quite by surprise I must say.

Last night as I was lying in bed, this experience came to mind. For some reason, it nearly consumed me. I couldn't think about anything else and every few minutes my body would twitch at the thought of what could have happened, and all I could do to calm myself down was say a little pray of thanks for the tiny miracle that saved me from experiencing so much pain.

On a side note, Jon was soo tired last night he fell into a deep sleep tangled up with me. Usually we cuddle for a few minutes then separate so we can sleep. But for the first time ever that separation part didn't happen, until a bit later when I made him move because I was getting too hot. Anyways, everytime I twitched while thinking about the tree incident, his foot would twitch in response. It was funny but not exactly fun to have someones feet banging against mine.

Oh Goodness I've Got a Lot of Work To Do

I clutter my life and save way too much. Even my email box is cluttered. In fact, I can't remember life without 300 to 600 emails in my inbox. It hasn't been as low as 300 for very long either. I saved and still save emails thinking I will look at them again, I will finally look at them for the first time later, I might need this information, I think this is funny, etc. etc. etc. I started organizing my email a few months back so that those emails that I absolutely felt like I needed to keep were saved in some sort of organized fashion and the rest were finally read and deleted. But I want to get my inbox down to 0. So my goal this month is to get my inbox to 0.
