Dear Diary Thursday...

I just liked this and thought I would share...

"When a GIRL is quiet, Millions of things are running in her mind. When a GIRL is not arguing, She is thinking deeply. When a GIRL looks at you with eyes full of questions, She is wondering how long you will be around. When a GIRL answers, "I'm fine" after a few seconds, She is not at all fine. When a GIRL stares at you, She is wondering why you are lying. When a GIRL lays on your chest, She is wishing for you to be hers forever. When a GIRL wants to see you everyday, She wants to be pampered. When a GIRL says I love you, She means it. When a GIRL says, "I miss you", No one in this world can miss you more than her. "

Dear Diary Wednesday...

I went to the interview and I won't be taking either of the positions she offered me IN THE INTERVIEW unless there is a miracle. The interview was great but I just left knowing that I did not want the job or to work for the is just not up my alley of what I know will make me happy. However, it was a good opportunity to brush up on my skills for interviewing, so I don't have any regrets whatsoever about going. Plus, I know this is just Their way of letting me know that there are bigger and better opportunities out there for me.

The good news about yesterday is that my favorite Honey-Boy, Shane, came over with our NEW CHRISTMAS TREE. It is very slim, which is exactly what I wanted for my front room, and absolutely adorable. Dylan and I will be spending the rest of this week and weekend decorating the house and the tree, along with shopping. I told you I had the Christmas Spirit!!!

Dear Diary Tuesday...

First day back to the gym after a week off was good. I am starting out slow, so I did one mile on the track. Then I took Mom over to Wal-Mart to do some grocery shopping and I think we did another 5 miles because I felt I was there FOREVER! Sometimes I am in the mood to grocery shop, and then there are nights like last night that I just want to get out of the crowd and go home!!

I took a half day off on Thursday so that I could rush home and put up Christmas lights on my parent's house so that neither one of my parent's would make the attempt. If I fall, I will probably bounce, maybe break something, but I heal quickly. If my parent's fell, they would almost certainly break something and it would take forever to heal and who knows what kind of complications would arise. Plus, my Dad is in a freakin' walking boot!!!! I know, I know, I am not much better at keeping down then I am suppose to be resting, but I can't stand to not be active when I am feeling good.

It looks like a good weekend ahead. I am planning on spending all of Friday Christmas shopping with Dylan. Saturday I am shopping with my folks. Sunday will be my day to clean, rest, do laundry, rest some more. As weird as this feels to me, I actually feel a bit of the "holiday spirit" this year. Hopefully it will last!

Dear Diary Sunday...

Happy Belated Turkey Day to everyone!!!!

Thanksgiving was interesting. I spent the day over to my folks house cooking and Dylan ended up going to his Aunt's house to cook. My Daddy managed to break his foot yet STILL managed to be under mine the whole day! After the food was gone, the house cleaned up, I took off at a run back to my house, where I did an emergency call out to some people to come to my house and get liquored up with me because I needed a strong drink and didn't want to do it alone. Low and behold, Shane, Chet, Toni, Rob, Jeremy, Michelle, and Dylan all heard my call.....we ordered pizza, drank strong drinks, and managed to make it a wonderful, wonderful Thanksgiving after all!!

Unfortunately, in all that festivities, Dylan and I both managed to get sick. His is stomach related and mine was cold related....not the way I wanted to spend the rest of my time off. Friday we attempted to go out and X-mas shop, but ended up coming back to the house, but stopping to pick up cold medicine before. However, I decided after spending Saturday sick, that I was tired of being sick and so no longer am.

Wasn't waking up to snow this morning wonderful!!!! Dylan and I both shoveled our house and then I took care of my folks place, so my Father-With-The-Broken-Foot would not attempt to shovel....which we all know he would. Then I did some cleaning, some baking, some reading, and some relaxing.

Speaking of reading, I came across the very best article that I have read in a very long time. The basics of the article is how that we spend our precious moments celebrating everything and nothing. The fact that we have so much in our life should be enough to celebrate any chance you get. I love that idea! It also talks about putting some of that "happy celebration" in reserves and when a situation comes up that would normally just bring you right down, take some of that out of reserve. I love the idea of taking out your best goblets just to have iced tea with friends, or your best china to have everyday foods with everyone. Why not????? Sometimes those kind of articles just come to me when I need them the most.

Okay, keep your fingers crossed for me. I have an interview on Tuesday and I am so excited about getting my feet wet again in the employment hunt. Call me strange, call me weird, call my crazy, but I love interviews and job hunting.....especially when I am in a situation that I don't HAVE to look for a job.
