Monday, Monday


Ya know - most people wouldn't be looking forward to Monday. Any Monday.

Tomorrow is going to be...different.

Can't wait until tomorrow. :)

Interesting Day It Was

People frustrate me. Completely and totally. I think that it is completely ridiculous that I had to spend approximately 15 minutes about why someone's doctor didn't call in their scripts because -- big surprise here -- I DON'T KNOW!!! I'm sorry they didn't do what they said they were going to do but I don't have the answers - please call them.

Other than that the day has been ok. Didn't sleep real well last night. Couldn't get comfortable and then when I finally did, I couldn't shut off my subconcious so it woke me back up. So I was tired, then the day just dragged on...It was just a tiring long day.

I want to go on vacation. I need a vacation. I know that I have one coming and I'm excited for it, I just wish that it was sooner. *Sigh*

I'm going to bed. Goodnight.

Random Fact: In Montana it is against the law to have a sheep in the cab of your truck without a chaperone.

Grrreat Day!!

Today was a great day. Absolutely wonderful fantastic day -- and I say this knowing that I have to go into work tomorrow.

Today was just -- great. I had a terrific lesson tonight at horseback riding. I felt more comfortable and like I worked harder.

I think I'm going to start another book. I'll update more tomorrow.

Random Fact: On NCIS, at one point, Michael Weatherly's character (Tony DiNozzo) states "I've got a better chance of hooking up with Jessica Alba than these guys do of infiltrating SeaLift.". Michael Weatherly was engaged for a time to Jessica Alba and starred opposite her on "Dark Angel" (2000).

One Step At A Time

You believe and you doubt
You're confused, you got it all figured out
Everything that you always wished for
Could be yours, should be yours, would be yours
If they only knew

We live and we learn to take
One step at a time
There's no need to rush
It's like learning to fly
Or falling in love
It's gonna happen and it's
Supposed to happen and we
Find the reasons why
One step at a time

When you can't wait any longer
But there's no end in sight
when you need to find the strength
It's your faith that makes you stronger
The only way you get there
Is one step at a time

Jordin Sparks - One Step At A Time

I find inspiring blog posts in the most peculiar places and times. I was doing the dishes when this song came on and I just saw my moments from my life flash in front of me, like an old style movie. I remember how impatient I have been at other points in my life (waiting for my wedding day and feeling like time was going backwards, waiting for the word that the house was ours and how everyone else seemed to be moving at any other pace than the one I wanted...etc) and I realized that this is no different. Everything worked out then, why shouldn't it work out now? There's no reason and that I am just being precipitate of the situation and that's not helpful.

Why am I such a slow learner of these things? LOL. I think I'm just going to kick my feet up and wait quietly - not forever, but maybe just a bit longer. :)

AND....I will have other things to keep my mind occupied. it's always been a dream of mine to have my own horse so with that in mind I have made the decision that I am going to take up riding lessons again. (My NP said it was ok -- I checked ;] ) I had my first lesson on Thursday and I remember how much I loved it when I was younger; as well as the fact that I'm kicking myself for ever quitting. I didn't remember everything and I didn't expect to but I remembered more than I thought I would. I also ache a bit more...LOL. I had just started being able to jump, granted the pole was only a few feet off the ground, but I'm hoping to get more into that. It's going to be good -- I know this. :)

Other than that things are good. Not much new to report.

I think I'm going to sign off now and either go watch NCIS or read my book.

Random Fact: During the filming of Bella's birthday party, Jackson Rathbone got so into character that both Peter Facinelli and Kellan Lutz had to hold him back. During one of the takes, Elizabeth Reaser was knocked to the ground.

“It is only because of problems that we grow mentally and spiritually.” M. Scott Peck

I don't understand people. You would think that I would have a grip on what makes some people tick or even what makes certain groups of people tick, seeing as how I spend a good deal of my time observing them. Nope. Nadda. I'm seriously beginnging to think that it's an impossible goal and here's my reason why.

There's this person (well people really) and they've known me for going on 8 - 10 years (while the BIL and ex-SIL were together/married). Well in those years neither person has really gone out of their way to acknowledge me when they've seen me without me doing so first. So then this situation arises that isn't a happy or fun time to go through (separation/divorce) and now everytime they see me I have to get an update on what the entire family is up to. I haven't spoken with my ex-SIL in over a year! I don't get it. I know that she's pregnant and I wish her the safest and healthiest pregnancy (because I seriously don't want anyone to go through a miscarriage - ever) but part of me wishes that she gets really fat and has hard back labor. I don't think that's tooo vendictive - or atleat I hope it's not because I truly to want all parties involved to be safe. But why do I need to hear about it? Part of me feels like it's rub in the face when I had nothing to do with why they aren't together anymore. Grr. People!

The worst part about it is that I've been trying so hard to stay out of and not crawl back into that place in my brain that say you're broken, you're defective, if God wanted you to have a child he wouldn't have taken yours from you and it just seems like people this week are trying my strength to keep that cover shut. I'm trying though - I'm trying hard.

On a happier note, friends (well mainly of my inlaws but I think they are great people) from Blind River Canada (or somewhere near there) are up (down?) visiting for the week and we had an enjoyable breakfast this morning. It was nice to sit around and catch up; I haven't seen them since J and I got married.

Other than that there hasn't been much going on. Still working on the livingroom and the hallway/stairwell. It's coming along slowly. I have pictures to post when I get a minute or two.

I'm looking forward to the season premieres of shows though I can't believe it's already August. Where has the summer flown? It seems like just yesterday I was watching the last of the snow melt and the first buds of the season appear on the trees. *Sigh* Time flys when you're not paying attention.

I think that's all for tonight. :)

Random Fact: On BONES, Angela Montenegro's middle name is "Pearly Gates" which is the name of a guitar belonging to ZZ Top member Billy Gibbons, who plays Angela's father in some episodes.

“Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future”

Said by John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

I just don't understand; not the quote - I get that, but why are people who are in a position to fufill this quote be denied the ability to do so easily but those who would backhand their 2-3 year old son get pregnant so easily?

I know I should be kind to everyone I meet because I don't know what struggles or fight they are undertaking but some days it's just soo damn hard. Needless to say I had a rough lunch today and as much as I tried to shake it off, the frustration is lying there still like a wet blanket.

I just needed a vent. I think I'm going to go read.

Random Fact:

Walt Disney World Lost and Found is one busy place. Every day an average of 210 pairs of sunglasses are turned in and, since 1971, an estimated 1.65 million pairs of glasses have found their way into the "lost" bin. On an annual basis, Lost and Found cast members collect more than 6,000 cell phones, 3,500 digital cameras, 18,000 hats and 7,500 autograph books.

New Book.

So in the midst of a renovation project, who starts a new book series? Me. Yup - me that's who. The person, who once she starts reading, has a hard time putting a book down. Needless to say I, unfortunately, took and had a day to myself to read. I mean I did laundry, dishes and that sort of thing work on the hallway. And the funny thing is (well maybe not funny...) but I'm not mad at myself about it.

Anyway -- the author is Kathy Reichs and she's the author who's books the Bones television show is based. I've been wanting to read the books for awhile now and they are great!!! I see similarities to the show but they aren't identical and it's nice. I love forming how the characters look, sound and what their surroundings look like in my head; it's how I totally get lost in a book. It's like this world where I'm a third person observer following them with a camera. It's pretty awesome from my point of view. :) (and a bonus is that I'm learning a bit of french here and there too...LOL)

Other than that I went to see the new Harry Potter in IMax on Friday. It was pretty good I thought and stayed truer to the book than I think the last one or two did.

Ok I think I'm going to unplug now and go read - again. LOL...back to work tomorrow for me. Hopefully it will be a decent day.

Random Fact from Serenity: There is an inside joke printed on some of the crates in the cargo bay. Some of the crates have the message "Reusable Container: Do Not Destroy" printed on them (they are visible behind River after the Reaver has been shot). The original set for the ship, from the show "Firefly" (2002) was destroyed (even though creator Joss Whedon swore he'd make use of it again), and therefore could not be reused for the movie (the set had to be rebuilt from scratch).
