Life’s Changes

Endurance is different for everyone, in many different situations spanning so many astounding lifestyles. Someone could look at my current goings on and say this is a cake walk. Then there is that one who looks and has understanding and wonder how hard it really can be….simply by the change in the flow of things on my blog.


Endurance plays a key role in how any given moment, be it short or long standing has affects on….gosh, where do I begin?….this can go as deep as the soul of a person or as shallow as a mosquito’s touch. 


For me I did endure, and I’m not out of the woods, but it was/is a real struggle this time around. I did learn a few things along the way and that is always a good thing….right?….of course it is. I’m in the process of learning how to adjust to the escalated stress level. Cutting out a few things from my daily work eating habits helped a lot. I was having an affair with sweet pastry….and it was very good, but nearly eliminating that portion of the day was very helpful. 


When you’re dealing with all aspects of life such as work, home, romance or the lack thereof, emotions strewn together like spaghetti except it seems there is no end. That makes for an emotional roller coaster equipped with all the “fun” surprises that help to make these rides even more exciting!

~~~a nice peaceful sigh~~~

Then there’s the moment I find out that it isn’t really my 200th blog post. What I do find out is that the drafts count as posts…..albeit not published, something I didn’t pay any attention to. In the same post where I proudly announced my 200th blog post, I also mentioned I was about to do something I thought was somewhat down the road. Well I guess it is still down the road because I was going to write a poem on a theme and for various reasons, that didn’t happen. 

So life does tick tick tick away filled with its surprises.

She Kicked Me

 Yesterday was MyMom’s birthday. I called her around midday or so and she still sounds like the same strong woman I have known all my life. It’s such a joy to hear her smiling voice when she answers my call. I don’t call her nearly as much I should and I am really disappointed in myself.



I have been on this roller coaster and can’t seem to bring myself completely out of this pit. OK, first off things have really improved on some very important areas and I’m feeling good about those. 


So it’s pointing back to me and I have known that from the beginning of my personal slump. I wonder if depression has nestled its way in, clinging to various aspects of my every move, my thoughts, and my body. Life is good. I have no desire to sit back and give up and allow this to encompass my life. It’s a battle and a hard fought one. Frustration is one of the main obstacles, even though I have made progress, the setbacks continue to mount…and the setbacks are tied into my writing…here is where the battle is hardest fought.


In my need to turn things around, I have put so much onto my plate and now I have complicated my situation a little bit more…with more things to think about and more things to accomplish. Unfortunately, coupled with my lack of writing, some of the very things I had set out to do to coincide with my turn around, is suffering.


All is not lost…for this is but a bump in the road that jars you more than your ordinary bump in the road. As I mentioned before, I talked to MyMom and gave her my birthday greetings. We talked and she pretty much told me to suck it up and get back to who I am…that’s the short version…and I needed that kick. MyMom gave me a six month challenge. She wants to see where I am in six months…I needed that too. I wrote a Mother’s Day poem for MyMom…you should check it out.


Talking to my daughter MahoganyMama, she gives me a thirty day blog challenge…and I never told her about the challenge MyMom gave me….this is good too.


These two challenges pop out of nowhere in the span of hours apart. Someone knows what I need.


Looks like I have my work cut out for me….

Getting Back In-Continued

I’m now into my first full week of refurbishing my attitude and giving a face lift to my passions. So far I am feeling much better emotionally which is a big step toward reaching my goal. 

I hadn’t posted since last Friday but that is not a bad thing this time because I’ve been busy attacking the negative factor in my life.

In the mean time, I’d just like to share a couple of pictures I took while out and about this past week.


I just couldn’t resist bringing these home with me.

Here’s mine 

Getting Back In

At this point in my life, I have more distractions than I have had before. It’s not all bad, it just takes me away from some things I want and need to do. Yes there are some distractions that have taken their toll on me. 

It has been a long time since I have designed anything new, I haven’t been posting like I was, I’m sitting on projects…and it goes on. 

I haven’t been able to access my files on the pc yet and that is a real treat because I have pictures I need along with the files I’d like to re-acquire.

So I have been on a mission recently to get back in the game. I’ve been feeling sorry for myself, complaining…blah, blah blah…yep, that was me. I’m done with that. It’s time for me to pick myself up and get going. I purchased a external hard drive to transfer the files from the pc. If the hard drive is truly dead, then I will have to start from scratch…well, almost from scratch. I do have a lot of my greeting card files and t-shirt designs saved but I need the main software.

I got the Netbook thinking I would also be using the pc. That went south shortly after I got the Netbook, so it’s not all bad because I can still do whatever except it doesn’t have a disc drive. I’ll purchase an enclosure and solve that problem.

I’m giving myself two weeks to make a decent dent in this turnaround. I figure if I put it out there, I’ll have to be accountable….and I want this.

Tidbit Time

I’m gonna throw in a few things on this one.


First off, Friday is just around the bend and I’m trying to retrieve files from the pc before the hard drive dies completely. I’d like to design a header for the meme.  

~~~~~~
Have you ever been in situations where you really want to say something but for the better good, you opt for silence? That’s me right now. I know exactly what issues are bothering me, but for the better good or know it would do no good to speak, I opt for silence….and that includes writing about it…this sucks and I don’t intend to let it linger.

~~~~~~

I rode my bike late yesterday and did what I call a hard ride…I really pushed myself. It hurt, but felt good. I didn’t ride today, so it’s gotta be in the morning before work. 

~~~~~~

Gonna try to see if the pc will work with me.  

Counting Down

I hope you’re getting ready for Friday! It’s the opening day of the WhatrUWorkinOn-Friday meme. 


I’ve changed the start time of the meme from 7:00 pm to 7:00 am US Eastern Time Zone. It still closes 7:00 pm Sunday.


Plenty of time link-in.


Stay tuned for details.

Moving Forward

Yes I am getting things prepped for the meme.


I have decided to go with inlinkz to allow for linking in on the meme. 


I have also decided to name it WhatrUWorkinOn-Friday. The link-in will be open on Fridays and close on Sundays. Right now I have the time set at 7:00 pm to open and close and that is US Eastern Time Zone…of course that could change before opening day. 


I do have more but it’s getting late and I have to get up early.
