Time machine

I don't care to travel in time, well I guess it would be cool if it were possible... but the type of time machine I want is where I could stop and put a few more hours here or there into any given day.  I mean some days I wish were longer but I don't want to be at work longer.  I don't want to be doing chores or even watching T.V. longer.  I really want a little longer to some days for more me time! I am taking me time for my exercise/gym... but not taking me time when it comes to my photos (which I love photography and organizing my photos and making things with pictures), my blog (because I want to have this thing as a good recollection of important events in my adult life, my children's life, my accomplishments and failures), my new End the Fluff page (because I want this to be an excellent recollection of my journey for the next year and if I don't make time for it it will only be bits and pieces which is how I usually keep up with my blog), reading (I love my kindle and have so many books over the last few years that I have been meaning/wanting to read that I really should make the time to do so) my nails (I mean my nails haven't had any attention in so long I don't even know if I remember how to paint them, my nail polish is all dried up, and well I want to feel like a woman and have fancy nails... not long ones, just fancy ones), my legs (yep they always seem to need to be shaved) yes, time for all of these things.

I seem to sit on the computer every night but its more out of habit than determination to get something accomplished.  I mean the lap top sits next to me on the couch in the living room. Thomas and I will watch T.V. and browse the web.  I usually read a little about current events, stare at Facebook for way longer than I should and find myself wondering why I sat there on Facebook as long as I did most every night. Nothing new is really happening, non of the people I love are doing anything.  I mean I could simple scroll down see what's happened, and be done with it, but I don't. I look at this person's pictures and comment on this one's posts and then make my own and before I know it I have wasted an hour on that damn Facebook.  Not that I see a thing wrong with it, its that I have too many interesting things on there. I have "liked" so many running, fitness, nutrition pages and all of those pages have new posts to go and read on and I learn a lot from those things but really don't have to stare at them as long as I do.  I just need to manage my time better.  The time I give to my laptop and sitting on my ass should be a bit more valuable and used much wiser.

I have 6 months worth of photos to load up to my flickr acct before the new year as well as 25 videos to to get off my new camcorder from Christmas.  I have so many ideas running around in my head that I can't figure out where to start.

I just need a time machine. If I had one I would start right now by allowing myself to take a two hour nap lol see too much to do!

Christmas 2012

I had such a blessed Christmas with my family. My dad came and my Mom as well as Cathy and Cody.  After we had our small Christmas here at the house, the kids went of with their dad's and Thomas and I went to visit with Brian and his family.  For Christmas gifts I got to go to PCB next week and participate in the Biggest loser half marathon from Thomas, New camcorder from Thomas, My daddy got me a slow cooker, and Cathy got me $100 gift card and new towels and decor for the bathroom..those were my big present and I got several other smaller gifts which I really appreciated.

Well its been crazy getting trees, and shopping online. Yes online... that is the only shopping I have accomplished this far... there is still so much do to... finish shopping, plan a dinner, plan a breakfast, and can't forget to CLEAN THIS HOUSE!!!

Taking Desmond to Orthopedic doctor and physical therapy from an ankle sprain he obtained in the basketball game last week.

oh and I am nursing an extremely dry tongue... unique?  I don't know its a first for me. The tongue is the only thing that feels all dry and when you look at it is pure white. I am sure eating a bag of vinegar and salt chips all by myself had NOTHING to do with it right?

Random photos

This is my cat Trixie, she is the BEST! She is always the softest , cleanest animal despite the fact that she lives outside.  She has to be the easiest pet to own.  I love her so much!

This is Reuben, he asked for the sucker long enough and Thomas gave it to him.

Not sure where we were going but its a photo where Thomas doesn't look half asleep so its a keep even if it's not that good.

This is my mom's dog rufus.

This is reason number 1 that I have a weight issue
