  1. 2009 Resolutions

    by , 01-01-2009 at 10:14 AM
    1. To remember, every day, to respect my body and my mind, my home, and the planet I live on;
    2. To recycle, reuse, and reduce; to compost; to give back to the earth in a positive way;
    3. To remember that each day lived is a day lost, and to make the most of the time I have.

  2. Goodbye and farewell to 2008

    by , 01-01-2009 at 02:27 AM
    In about half an hour, 2008 will be gone forever. It saddens me to see it go, as it marks another part of my life that is lost to me. But I face its leaving with an equal amount of hope, as well. With a new year comes new possibilities, and new opportunities. I can only tremble in anticipation, and wait to see what 2009 lays at my doorstep.

    I got up today and immediately washed my face and combed out my hair, not a usual act for a day off.

    Made myself eat some breakfast (two eggs, over easy), which is one of the things I am trying to get better about, as every single thing I read about nutrition says to eat breakfast!

    I had to go buy some groceries, and I tried to buy a few items that would help me get over the "no breakfast" rut. I got some soy milk and some juice, so at the very minimum, ...

    In my daily efforts to effect the transformation from hen to chick, I went on a four mile run/walk today (ran two miles, then walked back).

    I am still working on a mirror mantra.

    Had to run out to gas up the truck, so, yes, I changed out of my sweats and actually took my hair out of the ponytail and tried to make it look reasonably like something other than a rat's nest. Couldn't quite get myself to put on make-up, as I was just intending to get gas, but at least ...

    Today, I changed from my sweatpants to regular pants as soon as I got out of bed. I also ran a comb through my hair and brushed my teeth this morning. (Hey, for a weekend, that is quite an accomplishment!)

    My hands have been getting really dry lately, between the cold weather, and all the baking (and consequently dishwashing) I've been doing. So I tried to remember to rub some cold cream into them a few times today. I may do an intensive treatment when I go to bed tonight. ...
