happy square root day!!!
(today is the 3rd day of the 3rd month of 09;)
weight watchers seemed to be a "piece of cake" (a rather oxymoron'ish start to my trickle, huh???;), until i fudged just a little on fat tuesday... since then, sticking to my diet and keeping my eyes on my goal weight has been extremely difficult.
i supposed the 40 days of lent is going to be a really tempting time for me, too:/
katherine and i had a girls' night last night. we popped a big bowl of smart pop popcorn, cranked up her electric blanket, and watched the 3 hour season finale of the bachelor...
this season's bachelor has really been the best ever, in my opinion. HOWEVER, when all was said and done last night, i was pretty sure that the poor bachelor has some very real personal issues... he may not be the catch he has seemed to be.
by the end of the show, katherine nor i was rooting for him:/
if you watched, what did you think???
my family hasn't physically attended church for quite some time. i (having gone nearly 3 months shingles free) have been gearing myself up to return. so, yesterday after i picked up katherine from school, i mentioned returning.
puzzled, katherine looked at me and asked, "mom, i don't get it. why would you want to go back to church when the people there only judge you for believing IN GOD???"
(it is true that if you mention "born again", the HOLY SPIRIT, etc... many do cringe:?)
(though both are the essence of Christianity and VERY good things!!!)
katherine is a very black and white kind of thinker...
and, i had to think quickly (in black and white).
i responded (i think in a positive way;).
what would you have said??? (really, i am asking!!!)
i'm thinking more and more every day that we should have sold all our stocks the day the dow climbed back up over 10,000 the last time. i actually urged john to do so; but it fell on deaf, denying ears.
day in and day out, it feels like i'm watching a real-life episode of "deal or no deal" watching as people are holding out turning down a $50,000 offer from the banker only to take home the $5 case...
INTERNET, this is real life!!!
I AM NO GAMBLER; thus watching is just a little sickening.
thank goodness i have faith that GOD will provide... because i have a feeling there are many who are going to need His providence in order to survive this one!!!
the seven girl scout cookies i binged on last night after watching the bachelor were sooooooooo good, thank you, elizabeth kelsey:b i had 3 tagalongs and 4 samoas; i would have had 4 of each, but there were only 3 tagalongs left in the box. sometimes, i suppose, less is more in the big picture, ha, as i didn't add any pounds, whew!!!
"hello, americans"... i'm going to miss paul harvey:[[[[
wow, what i was sure was just going to be a trickle turned into a pretty steady stream, huh:)
this is dani berrong, GOOD DAY!!!
ps... love and God's blessings:D
