Winter is coming soon and that's not a good thing! I hate winter, it's a very depressing time of the year. It's cold, everything is white, and gloomy. What's going to make this really hard is the fact that when I'm cold I won't leave my blankets to do anything because well, my body reacts weird to cold, it's almost as if I'm allergic to the cold :( I get these weird bumps (not goosebumps, I'm not that dumb lol) They look like bug bites and they itch like bug bites, it's really weird.
Hopefully I'll be able to paint during the winter to bring some color to the walls of the house then it won't seem so bad. I like big, bold colors so that should take away from all the gloominess. My living room is painted, well, not completely it has one coat of paint, I've been to busy/lazy to finish it. What I really want to do is paint our dining room, it's this beautiful red and I can't wait to see how it looks on the walls. we spend most of our time downstairs so if I can paint the whole downstairs and our bedroom and upstairs bathroom I should be good. Go BOLD or go home!
Happy Winter to those who love it, those who like it, and those who hate it.

Have you ever had a hard time finding yourself? I have and even now being in my Self Finding Process I find it hard to know who I am. There are so many thing about me and who I am that I don't like, but I've been this way so long that it's hard not to be, well, me. I'm tired all the time, I'm lazy, I'm fatter than I've ever been (which I'm still not huge or anything but I don't like the extra weight), I hate to clean, I especially hate putting away clothes, I love to sit around and play video games and watch movies for the whole day without ever leaving my recliner besides to go to the bathroom or to get food, I never spend time with friends, I read into things, I'm to shy, I love to be creative but can't break out of my "shell" enough to be noticed, I'm a slob yet a perfectionist,... you may ask how one can be a slob and a perfectionist. Well, it's quite simple really you look at a room and say it'll never be perfect so what's the point. Yeah, I'm a lot of negative. I'm sure there are some good parts in there, I just don't know where to look for them or how to bring them out after hiding them for SO long.
So you've heard the bad now I'll try to find some of the good things about me, keep in mind these things may not be much to you, but they do mean something to me. I'm a decent cook, when I do clean I try to make it look fabulous, I'm creative. I love to design things that could be interior design, house plans, clothes, furniture,... so on. I seem to have a knack for writing, I always try to be friendly, I love to listen and help people with their problems. I've always said that my blessing comes from seeing others blessed.
Idk when I actually put some of the good down it just doesn't seem like much. Some people are so great at, well, everything and then there's me, just trying to find a way to fit in, somehow. I know that no one ever completely fits in, everyone at some point in time feels like a loner, but I tend to feel that way a lot, but that is in my personality traits to be a loner. I'm not big on crowds. I don't want to be the leader and I don't want to follow, so where does that leave me?
Anyways that's just some more of my thoughts. It's late and I'm tired!
Happy sleeping, Readers!

If you love the Sims you’ll love The Sims 3 for Xbox 360! I’ve literally spent most of the 2 days that I’ve had it just playing the game. I’m still figuring some things out on it, but I’m having a great time. I must admit I miss knowing cheats to get some quick money, but you can write books and paint pictures to get some quick money, and the more you draw and/or write the better you get so the more money you get. Not as quick as I want, but it works. You can also buy a guitar and put it in you inventory and play it around town and people will pay you! Awesome right? There are more and better features than before. More hair possibilities both style and color options, more and realer looking clothing, more jobs, you can make 2nd stories on your console (before that was only for the computer versions of the game),…. Yeah, there’s a lot and it’s great and fun! So buy it, play it, love it! Happy Gaming!
So I find myself in a tough position. I have this strong need/want to write, but I don’t have any ideas that I’m passionate enough about to write. Plus with being sick I’ve found it VERY hard to focus on one thing for much time at all.
I guess the reason I find myself wanting to write is because my husband bought me the Sims 3 for Xbox 360, which I love by the way, but my Sims love art and so do I. I find them wanting to write books and such, which I also have wanted to do most of my life, but I’m just not that good of a writer. Even if I was a good writer look at all the books out! How would they ever notice me?
There are SO many books out now of the same subjects that I myself would like to write about, even though my opinion may be very different than all the other I could see people not buying a book about a subject they’ve already read about a thousand times especially from a writer they’ve never heard of.
Maybe if I took classes I would be able to write a book in my spare time, but I’m sure classes would be expensive, long, and hard for me. I’ve never liked school and even if it’s something I want to do I find that I tell myself no matter how bad I want it that I’ll never accomplish the schooling due to it being difficult in other words I’m telling myself I’d fail so why try. Yeah, I don’t have much faith in myself, but that’s because I let me and others down so much that I can’t see myself actually accomplishing anything big. There are many things that I would LOVE to do, but due to my lack of faith in myself, I’ve never tried any of them. Such as I love drawing, interior design, photography, writing (as stated before), fashion,…. See I have a lot and I think I could be good at all of them if I wasn’t required to go to schooling to “follow the dream”
So now I ask does anyone have any ideas, encouragement, input, skills in writing that may want to help me, tips on writing that would help,…? I’d love to hear the reader’s inputs. Yes, I know there are only a few people that read, but I don’t care about numbers I just want your opinions.

I find myself amazed after looking back over my life and thinking of all the decisions I’ve made, the people I’ve met, the places I’ve went, my friends, my family, even my ex-boyfriends… all these things and so many more have determined where I am today. Really once a “chapter” of your life is gone and you look back over it, it can be awesome or it could be really bad. I mean I’ve made some really horrible decisions and I’ve dated or liked some really stupid guys, but had I changed just one thing I could have been somewhere else. So even with my bad decisions and stupid ex’s I find that I’m in a town that I love, I own a wonderful home, I’m still in church, and I have a wonderful husband to share all of it with. Sure there are better houses and probably better towns, but there are far worse places that I could be in. I could be a druggy, an alcoholic, a prostitute,… or any other horrible thing that you could think of including death, but I’m not, I’m here and I love it! Are there hardships, yes. But who doesn’t have hardships in life? I mean really you may look at someone and think that their life is perfect, but if you pay attention long enough you’ll realize it’s not. Point is make the right decision, so you can be the right kind of person. Because believe it or not who you are today will determine who and where you’ll be in the future.

2.) This is the first sore throat I've had that cough drops made worse
3.) Gargle Salt Water it helps :)
4.) Hot Tea (sweetened or unsweetened) with honey (and lemon juice if you have it)<-- Unfortunately I don't have any lemon juice :( It helps to soothe your throat
5.) Lots of relaxation, but don't lose your job over it, it isn't that bad!
6.) A good amount of sleep. Make sure you sleep or it'll get worse
7.) Well, Idk a 7th one, but I don't want to leave it on 6 lol For those who don't know 7 is God's number :D <3

I hate to do things around the house, to be honest I'm lazy and I want to do what I want to do. I say that it's not going anywhere, so it can wait. Are you anything like me? If so I may have a way for you to "enjoy" doing things that need to be done and it's simple and I'm not charging for it, unlike everyone nowadays who has a good idea. It's a checklist. Yes, you may have tried a checklist before, but it's possible that you weren't doing it right. A checklist shouldn't only be the things that need to be done, but you have to include something that you want to do! I'll show you an example of a checklist I would make.
1.) Wake up @ 8:30a
2.) Take a shower or bath
3.) Watch a movie/eat <---FUN
4.) Do dishes
5.) Feed/water cats
6.) Clean litter box
7.) Sweep kitchen and office floor
8.) Watch a movie <-----FUN
9.) Clean up living room
10.) Pick up clothes in the bedroom
11.) Wash laundry
12.) Dry Laundry
13.) Go to work
15.) Eat and enjoy movie with hubby <---FUN
16.) Put away leftovers
17.) Do dishes
You can add whatever you want to it and mark it off just as if it was something that needed to be done! Video games, movies, Facebook, Blogger, Play with the dog or cat, Take a walk,... you can add anything! But you have to do the things that need to be done! You can treat yourself a few time in the day, but make the main part of it work. Let's say your room is a wreck in my case it'd be you have clothes all over the place and it seems like way to much and you start to panic. In this case I'll change #10 to look like this.
Example: 10.)Pick up clothes in bedroom (Clothes of the dresser)
And the next day I'll do #__Pick up clothes in bedroom (Put away clean clothes) and I'll get to the ones on the floor the day after, that way I'm not just loaded down with this big room, but I just do a little bit each day until it's done. And you can do a little bit in a few rooms until they're done then do another few rooms until they're done. I also like to add little pick me ups on my list in case I start to not want to do things.
Examples: (I've gained weight so I'll put something like..) Yes, this will be hard, but getting up and doing this will help you to be active and lose weight! You can do it! (or the whole I have no faith in myself, but.. and it'll look like this) Everyone has faith in you and they know you can do this, so do it for them!
Anything that will inspire you to keep going and do what needs to be done.
I hope this helps. Just remember it's not supposed to be easy, but it has to be done. And don't forget to treat yourself to something YOU want to do or you'll go insane and it'll seem like way to much to handle. So happy cleaning!

So this is Lil' Bit. She was the runt of the bunch. We're babysitting her for my mother-in-law, but possibly keeping her, not sure yet. She was born in September 2010, not sure what date, but she's just the cutest little thing. Her and Scooter get along just great, they often sleep curled up next to each other, it's adorable!
And of course if I have any that aren't secret family recipes I'll post them :D
