Thoughts I Am Thinking

How is it that when I have plenty of time (AKA this summer) that I didn't get any jobs and now that I am in the throes of school (AKA lots of reading) that I get 6-8 a week? I really don't get it, but that is why I haven't been doing much on the old blog. I have a regular client that I love to work for and she keeps me as busy as I want to be, but these little jobs from former clients of mine are what throws a wrench in my plans. I hate to turn down money (who does?), but sometimes I just want to stop working altogether and take a breath. Then my mind goes to "what if we need the money and I have severed all of these relationships. What will I do then?" This is what keeps me saying, "Yes" and then plowing through.

Other thoughts turn to Halloween. I have wanted to dress up the last few years and I finally took the plunge. Here is my skirt for my costume.

Isn't it cute? My mom gave me the idea and I found this one on ebay. I just love ebay. I figure I can wear it several Halloweens with a white shirt and keds. Put my hair up in a pony tail and I am ready to go. I am ready for Halloween!

I have renewed my commitment to Bible study this week. I have started "A Mom After God's Own Heart" by Elizabeth George and am really enjoying it. It has made my day much smoother all around. I don't know why I quit Bible study-I know that it is the most important part of the day.

I have also renewed my commitment to exercise and health. Notice I didn't say "diet." I am staying away from that word as it seems to make my body swell up with fat!LOL

I am trying to get my house in order, study for four classes, do 5 (of the 8 I got this week) more jobs, and take care of the kids (fall break). Juggling is what I do best!

How is your week going?

Smiles and Loves!

Good to see you blogging again, Janis, even if it's only once in a while. Best wishes in school - I know that can be rough.

I've been gradually losing weight for the last year (30 lbs so far), and my advice would be not to follow anyone's diet. If you just cut back a little on what you eat and follow a low-fat, sugar-free menu - that plus your exercise will drop the weight. Diets don't work because once you lose the weight and quit the diet, the weight creeps back on. Just change the way you eat.

Best wishes in that area also!
