Spring Fever

Every March 1st brings me a bad case of Spring fever.Exactly six weeks to my 4? birthday.I can still loose 30 more pounds if I push myself(starve myself).LOL I gave up cigarettes. Two packs a day for 28 years cold turkey,two years ago Jan.told myself if I could do that I could do anything.I instantly gained 60 pounds.Haha I signed my daughters and I up for Karate last summer.Yes you heard me right.They say it's all about conditioning,but once you start sparring you quickly realize it's all about not getting your ass kicked.Lol Any way I am not stopping till black belt.By the time my 4th and 6th graders are graduated we will all be there. Any way I have lost 30pounds already.I hope to be down another twenty by the end of the year.I also want to loose some clutter around my house.And I have spring cleaning.I have two craft projects to work on so I can share them with you.Spring fever has hit me.I want it too get here so all this work is behind me,and I can sit back and feel total control over my chaotic life on my beautiful spring birthday.Wish me luck.I have also been taking some time each day to visit blogs I follow I am really enjoying getting to you all.


  1. If it makes you feel any better, my rear side ceased to even try entering ANY of my pants as soon as the year began. Or was it as the last year ended? Never mind. Point is, seek solace my girl. The karate is going to make you look like one hot mum!

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog through Follow Friday! I'm a new follower here now. OH, and wow!!! Quitting cold turkey after 28 years is GREAT!!!!!! I smoked maybe 3-5 years and it was soooo tough to quit. WHEW! And I had lots of fun trying kungfu(yep the official kungfu) and got to my yellow belt. LOL It's just so much fun getting to spar with others(I always pictured myself as Bruce Lee haha) Happy Follow Friday!

  3. Thanks for popping by for a visit! I'm following you now :)

Women Over Fourty 8)

This is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 40: 60 Minutes Correspondent Andy Rooney (CBS) As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think. If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting. Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it. Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her. Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage! Andy Rooney is a really smart guy!

My Favorite Words Of Wisdom and Inspiration8)

You must live for another if you wish to live for yourself. ~ Seneca

One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, 'How was the trip?'

'It was great, Dad.'

'Did you see how poor people live?' the father asked.

'Oh yeah,' said the son.

'So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?' asked the father.

The son answered:

'I saw that we have one dog and they had four.
We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them.'

The boy's father was speechless.

Then his son added, 'Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are.'

Isn't perspective a wonderful thing? Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have.

Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends!

Pass this on to friends and acquaintances and help them refresh their perspective and appreciation.

'Life is too short and friends are too few.'
