When I first decided to create a new blog I wondered what I would write about. Then I decided it does not matter. This is where I will memorialize my every day. No matter how mundane it can be, and believe me, it can be. But I want to remember every little thing. And though I am starting a few days late (fun, play, illness), it's a good day to start. You see, our family suffered a tragic loss last year, June to be exact, and we are all having a hard time coping. But life does go on and while we mustn't forget, we must persevere and live like she would have wanted us to. So, Cathy, I won't forget, I will carry you with me always and live my life, well, the way you know I would and I know that you will support me, all the silliness, the dumb stuff I get myself into, the doomed romances, the sad times and the happy times, as you always have. I love you my dearest Sister.
1. To save money
A. I really need to work on this. I spend. I do. I love magazines, books, good food, clothes. I have to learn moderation.
2. To lose weight
A. Last year, I lost 40 lbs. I felt good, I looked good. It is a struggle to keep off the weight, but it shouldn't be.B. I will exercise 30 minutes a day.
C. I will eat healthy.
D. I will not give up my favorite Starbucks beverage, but I will drink in moderation.
3. To be happy
A. In all honesty, I really am a happy person. For the most part, I love my life. I love getting up in the morning, going to work (sick, huh?), just being a part of the everyday. And while I could use more $$ (see 1. A. above), I do fine with what I have.
Happened upon this new mag (new to me at least) at the grocery store. I like it. Good articles, one in particular on living alone.
Weekend recap: Friday (New Year's Eve), Mom and I took K and Cammi to Pittsburgh Mills, K got her doll, Cammi got new books, pizza for lunch, oh, I got a few new things at DB. Then took girls to B&N, Chili's for dinner. Later, Am and family and Joey and family came over. Good food, good company, great fun. Talked to my Mister a few times. Saturday, K and I went to Mom and Dad's to celebrate Cathy's birthday, then Mom and Liss, B and Mike, K and I went bowling. Later, K and I went to theater to see True Grit. Long day, late night. She watched Vampires Suck and Eclipse. Sunday, we rested all day, had a Mister type lunch and then I took her home. My Mister visited. Fab weekend!
