The wonderful colors of Fall   Leave a comment

this picture makes me incredibly anxious for our trip to Tennessee here in three weeks!
The waterfalls will be running rapid and the trees will be beautiful with their colors of oranges and reds.
I love this time of year!

7 months and 23 days……..   1 comment

so I have decided to make some changes in my life and I have given myself this above time to do it in.
Why the above time?
Because in 7 months and 23 days I will be 50 years old.
A half a century.
Amazing when one thinks about it.
A half a century old.

my goals for this time allotment are these:

1) I have four credit cards.  The goal is to get three of the four paid off and cut them up and never use them again

2) I want to lose at least 20 pounds in this time.  More would be great, but let’s be realistic!

3) I want to have a good savings account established.

4)  by the Fall of 2011 I want to go back to school.  I want all the steps to get me there accomplished by my 50th birthday.

5) I want to see and or talk to my estranged daughter

I’m sure there are more goals out there but these five come to my mind at this time………..

stay tuned………..

enough already!   Leave a comment

this pain, this whatever it is, inside my body, is kicking my butt!
I am sick of it.
I have had enough already!
This is the same pain that  sent me to the emergency room a month ago.
I have been living with this pain for that long!
It doesn’t go away.
Yes sometimes on a scale of one to ten, ten being the worst pain ever… is a three or so… annoyance but not really full-blown pain.
This morning it is full-blown pain.
From my neck to below my bra strap, and everything in between there hurts.
The pain is deep, it feels like someone is pounding on my body, my shoulders hurt, my neck hurts, my ribs hurt, my entire chest hurts …..I’m just tired of it all.

and while I go into see a Gastroenterologist on Monday and they will put that camera down my throat and see if they can find anything…..

Monday is a long way off from the pain I am in today.
