Just another Thursday night

Sitting here, warm and snug as a bug in a rug, kinda glad that there was no real winter storm that hit our area.  Sure, it woulda been nice to have an excuse not to go to work tomorrow, but that would just cause more chaos.  I suppose the wet roads could freeze tonight and cause me to delay my arrival at the office, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.  Black ice on Atlanta roads is just not a good thing.

Brian and I went hunting last weekend - didn't see a damn thing, except deer standing on the side of the road on the way to the hotel.  Yep, we decided not to rough it this past weekend - it was quite warm outside, and there was the possibility of rain, and we just weren't doing that. 

I have really been slacking at writing in the blog, I know.  I just don't have the motivation to write like I used to.  I used to vent a lot of negative feelings I had, share some situations, and I just don't have a lot of those negative feelings anymore.  Most of the "old" negative feelings are gone, and any lingering or newer negative feelings, I just don't want to share them.  So, that's why I'm not nearly as prolific with my writing as I used to be.  Good thing I'm not a paid blogger, huh?  lol

Damn I would love to have a Shoney's hot fudge cake about now.  I love those things, and haven't had one in years.  I'd settle for some plain old vanilla ice cream tonight, but we're slap out of that at home! 

On Facebook - if you're not currently a fan of the page "Overly Sensitive Military Wives", you should be.  That page is hysterical, and one of the admins, Six, is off the chain with some of her stuff.

Well it's almost the weekend - I hope you all have a great one!

Just for Today......

Taken from the Dear Abby we start a new year, and some of us make resolutions to change habits and activities, hopefully for the good, these guidelines, adapted from Al-Anon by Pauline Phillips (Abby), may help us get through the hard times.

JUST FOR TODAY, I will live through this day only. I will not brood about yesterday or obsess about tomorrow. I will not set far-reaching goals or try to overcome all of my problems at once.

I know that I can do something for 24 hours that would overwhelm me if I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

JUST FOR TODAY, I will be happy. I will not dwell on thoughts that depress me. If my mind fills with clouds, I will chase them away and fill it with sunshine.

JUST FOR TODAY, I will accept what is. I will face reality. I will correct those things that I can correct and accept those I cannot.

JUST FOR TODAY, I will improve my mind. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration. I will not be a mental loafer.

JUST FOR TODAY, I will make a conscious effort to be agreeable. I will be kind and courteous to those who cross my path, and I'll not speak ill of others. I will improve my appearance, speak softly, and not interrupt when someone else is talking. Just for today, I will refrain from improving anybody but myself.

JUST FOR TODAY, I will do something positive to improve my health. If I'm a smoker, I'll quit. If I'm overweight, I will eat healthfully -- if only for today. And not only that, I will get off the couch and take a brisk walk, even if it's only around the block.

JUST FOR TODAY, I will gather the courage to do what is right and take the responsibility for my own actions.
