It’s Not Over

 

Today’s Quote:

“You grow up the day you have your first real laugh at yourself.”

~~Ethel Barrymore

Well, in that case, I grew up at a very young age…I had to learn to laugh at myself…I had to learn how to not be so sensitive. What’s your take on this quote?

Hey Everyone!!!

So I’ve been informed that the 40 Days Of…AKA Lent…Goes from Ash Wednesday…The day I started….Until Easter Sunday. Hey man!!! I’ve been robbed. LOL.

Eh, I guess one more week won’t kill me, right? Hey, I’m a Virgo. It’s my right to always be indecisive. LOL.

So you’ll have to put up with me for another week, but I may just blog daily just for the funk of it…
Did I ever mention that I’m one of those sappy hopeless romantics that loves a good romantic movie or book (With a happy ending of course. I nearly had to throw up watching the Notebook…Don’t ask.)?

No?
Well, it’s true and that is why I stick to horror movies and books.
Romance that you see made in a Hollywood basement and in books are not real. Why do you think writers write these things??? Because they only wish they could have someone that was romantic towards them. You wanna know what’s the closest thing to romantic?
When your man buys you a scratch-off, or when he gives you money for no reason, or when he takes you out to the movies, and maybe even out to dinner. That’s as close as you’ll get…

But it doesn’t happen all the time…Especially not in this economy…So, a gal like me can dream…*sigh*
Yes, I just watched a movie recently through Netflix, and yes I’ve been watching it over and over…Well, just until Monday. I’m waiting on my 95 year old movie to come in the mail…

his movie was made in 1918, or as they said back then…Nineteen hundred and eighteen. I just heard them saying something like that on a recording in the 1920’s
Listen Here
Ironically Prince wrote about kissing Valentino in a dream…He then passed the song on to the band the Bangles for their hit that you still hear till this day Manic Monday…Bizarre.
Okay, I’m rambling now.

Still doing good on my diet. Haven’t eaten much today anyway…That’s a good thing. LOL.
Been doing some writing. Actually I’ve been writing on several different stories. Every time I get stumped, I move on to the next story. LOL. At the rate I’m going, I should be done in no time. LOL
I will see you all on day 40…

Today’s Quote:

“Spirituality is…the awareness that survival is a savage fight between you and yourself.”

~~Lisa S.

My take is that we all have a beast that’s within us. When we’re fighting with someone, usually the only true battle is within ourselves. It’s important to learn forgiveness within ourselves before we can forgive others. What’s your take?

 

Success! (Well, Almost)

 

Today’s Quote:

“The secret of success is constancy of purpose.”

~~Benjamin Disraeli

I guess this means to be consistent with your desired goals, and success will follow??? What’s your take?

Hey Everyone!!!

I bought fresh tomatoes and made a sauce….Yum!!! I had some wheat tortillas and so I put the sauce on it, added some spinach (Yummy) and some mozzarella cheese. Put it in the oven for 10 minutes…And Viola, you have a healthy treat…

Still no junk food. Although today I had such a sweet tooth, that my pup and I devoured a container of strawberries. Yes, my little Lassie likes fruits and veggies.

Andy is eating better to. He wanted some bran muffins, so I went to the store earlier and got some apple and raisin bran muffins. I wanted to find some heart healthy spread. I had to read the ingredients carefully. I found one called Olivio. It has Soy, Fruit Palm, Olive, and Canola oils. I looked them all up and each one is beneficial. IDK. If you know of a better spread, please share.

I’m talking about food and that’s going to make me hungry again. LOL

So what else did I do today???

Well, I started designing a shirt and from the scraps, I made a jersey bracelet…I hope you can see it. It’s black material.

When I finish my shirt, I will post it like I did with the Ramones shirt a while back.

That shirt took me a few days because I hand sewn the seams together. Sewing machines and I don’t get along. My hand sewing would probably last through a zombie apocalypse if ever one were to happen.

Anyway,

It didn’t dawn on me that while I was creating such stuff, I could be catching up on my movies through Netflix. I guess if I were that interested I would have watched it…*shrugs*

TV will rot your brains and turn you into a zombie anyway, right? LOL

Before I leave, I stumbled upon this video…I thought it was very sweet and I hope you like it too.

Countdown: Day 34

 

Today’s Quote:

“I’m gonna die with my boots on.”

~~Gene Autry

Interesting quote, huh??? I’m guessing he meant that he will keep on going till the day he dies. That’s how most people are anyway, right??? I could be wrong too.

Hey Everyone!!!

Today was a pretty weird and exciting and overwhelming day all rolled into one.

I took Andy to the doctor and the doctor put him on another blood pressure medication. This one is to slow his heart down a bit. His pulse is very high and could cause heart problems. He has all the signs of heart disease…More worries. *sigh*

I decided that while waiting for my brother to finish the drawing for my short-story series, I would publish a book of poetry. It’s being published as we speak through Amazon.

Here are some pictures I created for the book:

This is the cover of my book….

I call this “Changes”

This one is “Divine Intervention”

This one is called “Dedication”

I call that one “Dreams”

And the last one called “Love”

I don’t know why I can only do this kind of art. Don’t ask me to draw or paint…LOL It winds up looking like childs’ play.

I’ve been doing good. I still haven’t had any junk food.

Earlier we went to a Chinese buffet where I had nothing but sushi. I had to take the crab meat out. That’s just gross to me.

Advice

 

Today’s Quote:

“It is a good divine that follows his own instructions.”

~~William Shakespeare

Hey Everyone!!!

Yesterday was a bit of a crazy day. I’d rather not relive it. I said I would blog out my 40 days, and that is what I intend to do gosh darn it!!! LOL.

I was thinking that if I were to start writing and publishing, then maybe I shouldn’t be blogging…But truth be told…I love to blog. I’ve been blogging for well over 10 years now, and I’m not going to stop.

I remember the good old days of AOL. Those were fun. Then it was Myspace and Live Journal. Now we have Blogger, WordPress, and Facebook to blog. For mini blogs, there’s Twitter and Facebook. It seems the word Facebook is everywhere.

I’m not one to give out advice and tell people how to live their lives. The only thing I can do is put words of wisdom out there based off of my experiences on this roller coaster of life.

I have realized now that if you meet someone that is the love of your life and they don’t ever plan on having children of their own, and if you want children, you may as well get out of that relationship.

There is no point in crying over and over when your friends and random people are carrying children while you’re getting older and wondering why you haven’t become a parent yet, or yet again.

It does not matter if you’re in love. If you want a child and your partner doesn’t want one then you should…

GET OUT OF THE RELATIONSHIP.

You deserve better than that.

It’s too late for me as I have a son that’s almost 16 year old and I won’t make him a big brother now. I only wished I had run when I had the chance.
I am enjoying my new spinster life and will live in my hell till the day I am reborn again.

Enough about that.

So far today….I had some breakfast. I’ve been up since 4 in the morning after going to bed at almost 1 in the morning. Either I will stay up the rest of the day, or I will crash in a nap.

Depression takes a toll on me. Some days I will sleep for 10 or 11 hours, and then there are days like today where I will sleep for maybe 2 or 3 hours. Chemical imbalances are crazy, aren’t they? LOL

Exercise does help sometimes. Right now, I’m in manic mode. Manic is good. I’m feeling happy. Euphoric…

I hope everyone has a wonderful day…
