A person or thing whose presence or behavior is likely to cause embarrassment or put one at a disadvantage. Not in this lifetime.
After weeks of tests, medication and other things I would prefer not to delve into, I finally had my gall bladder removed last Friday. I hope and pray this has been the cause of all my physical ailments and I can get on with being my normal healthy, vibrant outgoing self.
This has been life changing for me. Having almost a week to recover, I have had a lot of time to dig deep within and ponder about life in general. I have come to the following conclusion about my life:
I am faced with a dilemma of how I am going explain this to my boss?
And … Do you think he will cut my salary?
Da-svi-da-niya Sochi. Hello prime time TV. Okay, I’m not one to bitch or complain (ok, well maybe I am) but I am so glad that the Olympics are over and we can get on to some quality, snuggling on the couch, prime time TV. Season Premiere of Dallas … finally! And Survivor … who doesn’t love reality TV?
I have not been inspired to write lately, in case you can’t tell. Have a good week!
Altough I lost respect for Sherman and all of his accomplishments after his recent rant, I was not happy at all to see him get hurt.
Even though Manning played his worst game ever, I still respect and admire him.
The game was a sleeper. I broke even in the football squares. The commercials were not comical. Halftime was a waste of time.
But I did walk away with the knowledge of this:
Proof once again that there is a God!
As a participant in the Zero to Hero challenge my 4th task is to engage with the community, and follow five new topics in the Reader. What? Really? Seriously, five new topics?
I already follow these: Comedy, Confidence, Daily Prompt, Death, Faith, Football, Forgiveness, Grandchildren, Happiness, Houston, Jokes, Kindness, Laughter, Loneliness, Love, Love Stories, Music, Peace, Pets, Poetry, Postaday, Prayer, Reality, Recovery, Romance, Sports, Success, Texans, Thanks, Today, Wisdom, Wordless Wednesday, Zerotohero.
But OK .. Mr. and Mrs. Team of Top Expert Bloggers, I will accept your Zero to Hero challenge and give honor to the first blog that comes up in my new categories:
Cooking: My husband will appreciate this one, if I actually learn something from it. The first post I read was from Roots and Vines, who is grounding your diet so you can reach out. The post is “Our favorite recipes of 2013”. Looks like an interesting site. I may just have to follow it.
Exercise: My husband will appreciate this one too (hahaha). Actually, he could care less what I weigh or how I look. But I am a better wife when I am healthy so I hope to learn from this one too. The first post I read was from Dream Big – Live Amazing, who says that something magnificent is right in front of you, just look for it! She obviously is not standing in front of my mirror. She reminds us in her post “Comfort and Joy? How about Discomfort and Joy?” that we will all be sore if we intend to achieve our goals in diet and exercise. Get Uncomfortable – Make that your #1 goal every day!
Bridgewater: I figured I better follow this one since he will most likely be the next quarterback for the Texans. The first post I read was from CBS Houston and Sports Radio 610, talking about how Teddy Bridgewater needs to be our first pick in the draft. At this point, I will be happy as long as it is not Johnny Manziel, aka Johnny Football. Not that he isn’t a great athlete or an awesome quarterback, I just don’t think he is the right “character” for Houston.
Parenting: Regardless of the stage you are at in parenting, this topic will be good to follow. Parenting changes all of the time, sometimes daily, so this blog topic should be interesting. The first post I read was from Not Another Daddy Blog, who then admits, well, OK, it totally is. The blog appears to be a blog of short stories about being a Dad, with the latest “The Triumphant and Unexpected Return of Walter the Dolphin”. I could use another perspective I suppose.
Chocolate: Chocolate and Cheetoes are my downfall. Now I can read about it! The first post I read was from The Sweat Angel, who has a blog on fitness, nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. What? A nutrition blog with a “chocolate” tag? Her post is a recipe for Chocolate Honey Peanut Butter Protein Bites … Yummy. This is a sign from God …..
As a participant in the Zero to Hero challenge my 3rd task is to state what is on my mind or why I started my blog.
Quite frankly, football is on my mind right now. Watching KC and the Colts and it is not looking to good at the moment, I hope my whole weekend doesn’t go this way! But, I know this is not REALLY what the challenge is asking for so I will move on.
I started m blog as a way to clear my head. I have trouble sleeping because my mind won’t stop turning. I write best in the wee ours of the morning while everyone else is sleeping. I will write things I would not otherwise say. I try to communicate my feelings and help others understand me and my thought process. I like to make people laugh and to make them feel good about themselves and blogging is a great way of doing that. Blogging can also be a way to tear someone to pieces so I try to be careful not to be too negative in my blog but still stay true to myself. Just as there are many things that I regret saying, I am sure there will be many things I will regret posting, but hopefully I can learn from it.
I am somewhat creative and use this as an outlet since I don’t really like the social Devil, what it stands for or the drama it causes in life. You know what I am talking about, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etcetera. If I told you that I met my husband on MySpace (belly laughing right now), you would wonder how I can say that social media is the Devil. Our meeting was quite by accident. But that is another story for another day.
As a participant in the Zero to Hero challenge my 2nd task is to edit my title and tagline and flesh them out more in a widget.
I don’t know, I kind of like my Title (Better than Reality) and I like my tagline (My Choice, My Life, My Destiny). They both kind of define my blog and what it is all about. I did accept the challenge defining my site and putting the widget to the right. Literally as you can see. I hope you like it. I am open to suggestions if you can come up with something catchy for me. I will even consider the suggestions from some of my “smarter” followers, aka smartasses. 🙂
