Feng Shui...Anyone?

Linda came over this morning to do yoga. As we were working-out I noticed the arrangement of my furniture and that got me thinking of Feng Shui.

I'm not really into the whole Feng Shui movement, but I do believe the arrangement of furniture can affect someone’s mood. Trey and I have noticed the den sometimes changes our moods. First of all the lighting is horrible. Also the lack of furniture makes it cold and uninviting. Any Feng Shui consultant would condemn our den. Yes, our den needs a serious face-lift, but I can deal with it.

Voted To Talk On Our Behalf

Sunday Trey and I had to stand before our church congregation and give a testimony about taking the Financial Peace University class. If you know Trey at all, you know he's not much of a public speaker. When he has to talk even in a small group he gets nervous and his eyebrows start to twitch. To save him the twitch, I was nominated to speak for both of us. I was a little nervous, but I got through it and managed to crack a few jokes. Trey just stood beside me and when I asked him if he wanted to add anything he said no.
Well, immediately after church I had to work. Trey drove the car as I changed clothes and ate. I hate rushing, but I'm glad my boss doesn't make me work on Sunday mornings.

Hello Again

Hello. I apologize for the gap of blog entries this last week. I have no real excuses so why bother making them up. The last few days I've been vegging out and recovering from working my night job. This weekend I'm working, but I'm only working half of the hours compared to last week.

Aside from that, things are good...not great, but you know good. Today is Trey's 24th birthday. I have to work tonight and I told him he should celebrate without me, but he insisted on celebrating tomorrow just so I can be there.

Well, it's been nice updating you and I hope to get more posts in next week.

White Blanket

Last night it snowed and this morning I rolled out of bed, feed the puppies and grabbed the camera.

Nights & Weekends

So, I got this part-time job, this is of course aside from my day job.

I’ll be working nights and weekends…so, basically when Trey is off, I’ll be working. It’s gonna suck for a few months, but like I always say, “I’m not making a career out of this.”

I’m gonna bust my butt for 6 months or so and do what I have to do in order to be where Trey and I feel financially comfortable (if that’s even possible, not just for us, but for anyone). Since taking the Financial Peace University class we’ve really laid out goals we want to accomplish and if that means getting a second job I don’t have a problem with that.

A Love-Hate Relationship

No, I'm not talking about my husband, mom, or sisters...instead I'm referring to a company...Apple.

Recently, Apple made an announcement and the world stopped to listen. Isn't it a sad world when more people tune in to hear what Steve Jobs has to say and few make an effort to tune in to the President's recent address? I haven't decided if I'm going to support the iPhone considering my history with Apple products. Only time will tell, but how can I resist the sleek technology that will depreciate my quality of life. Oh, the dilemma.

Yogis of the World Unite

Linda and I have ventured to conquer our yoga quest. She came over this morning, at the crack of dawn, with two yoga mats in hand. So, I guess yoga is my latest obsession of the month. I'm getting better everyday with my flexibility.

Besides all that, I've been pretty busy. This week has been bizarre and uncomfortable, but this weekend I'm looking forward to spending more time at home.

Who Said Yoga Was Easy?

I've always thought anyone could do yoga. I thought it was a type of aerobic anyone could do regardless of their athletic state. This week I've been practicing it and have managed to tangle myself with myself.

These positions are ridiculous!

Resolving to Make Changes

2007 will be the year of change. I've made a list of resolutions.

1. To work-out
2. Eat healthy
3. Continue to refrain from sodas
4. Knock out some serious debt (Trey and I want to pay off the house in 5 to 6 years).
5. Challenge myself to continue my education outside of a classroom setting.
6. To be a better wife, neighbor, sister, friend, and worker.

Last year I followed through with most of my resolutions. I joined a gym at the beginning of the year and hit the gym hard until my contract expired. After the membership expired, I continued to find ways to stay active. Previous resolutions included giving up sodas. Okay, I didn’t give them up all together, but “most of the time” I drink water instead. To all of you who are making resolutions I wish you the best.
