My Life is a Cartoon

Maybe my life is not a cartoon, but I do like to draw little cartoons about some of the things going on in my life.

We had pizza at Church. I had thought about eating something completely different and not eating any pizza. I did not eat too much, but I did think I was going to eat just one piece.

I had two pieces. I was only going to eat cheese pizza (less calories) but there wasn't one and so I got something that didn't look too bad for my first piece. When I went back my will power was weaker and I got a piece of pepperoni. ;-(

I also ended up staying up really late because my renter was having electrical problems. I went over and flipped some switches in the fuse box. Then the electric company came out and the problem was outside and something they would fix. I am thankful that it wasn't a problem with the house inside.

Dessert Contest at Work

My little work group had a lunch time dessert contest. I was very good and got some kind of little salad and just ate that.

I think the worst part was being around all that great dessert and eating a really bad salad. It had onions (not cooked ones) and olives and probably some other stuff that I don't like, but I ate it anyway and drank water and stayed away from the chocolate.

On the upside we had another weigh in and I had lost some so that was good.

Getting Organized

I started trying to organize things and and putting them in boxes. Then I was going to visit my parents and I could not find any shoes. This is not the first time this has happened to me. If you can't find your shoes you can't even go to the store to buy more.

I guess I could order some off the internet ;-)

I did finially find some flip flops to wear and get to go and visit, Did I mention that I twisted my knee. So I had to drive with my flip flops and an ice pack on my knee.

I just hope I find better shoes before I go to work. Time to unpack a few boxes.

I got my eyebrows done again

I finially got the oil changed in the car and while they did that I walked a few blocks away and had my eyebrows plucked.

I really don't pay too much attention to my face, but some of my friends have mentioned that I need to get my eyebrows done.

Apples from Seed

I had an apple and one of the seeds just fell out in my hand... that got me to thinking. Can you grow an apple from a seed.

Well yes you can, but you will not know what you will get. They don't grow apples from seeds they graft them and for some strange reason if you plant a seed you may not get an apple that is like the one you are eating.

I'm still here

Just lazy and a bit under the weather with allergies.

No oil change for my poor car

I have been wanting to get the oil chaanged in the little car and I finally got up the nerve to get it done yesterday. I went to three different places and none of them worked out.

The first one I went to had a sign that said to stay in your car and wait for an attendant which would have been fine except they had just closed. The hours were on a small paper by the door. And yes I would have to have gotten out of the car to see the hours.

Good Exercise

I think maybe I need to get a dog. I know the cat would not like it, but think of all the exercise I could get dancing.

Quote: The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too. - Samuel Butler

Tax Day

I never thought anyone would want me for my money, because I don't have that much, but I guess it happens. Today is tax day and it's also a very special day at Church. Someone is going to give her testimony and it's always great to hear when God changes someone's life from almost unbearable to happy.

That doesn't mean all your problems are solved. He doesn't send an Angel to do your taxes for you ;-) but he can really change things.

Weigh In

We had another weigh in today and it was not good. I think it was not good for most people. My only guess is that I've been a little under the weather. When I don't feel well I think that if I eat I will feel better and so I eat.

It wasn't much and I think that I can make it up before the next weigh in.

If I can get to work early tomorrow I will park at the other end of the building and then I will have to walk a long way to get to my office.

Sometimes it's hard for me to understand how God could love us so much that he would be willing to allow his son to die for us. The empty tomb is a great visual. It makes me think of how dead our lives can become without God and how he can bring us back to life.

It seems like the whole earth comes back to life around Easter.

Little flowers pop up and bloom and all the leaves come back on the trees. The birds start singing and building nests. That just adds emphasis to the season.

Saturday before Easter

It Iwas windy and rainy and I think if the easter bunny wanted to get out and hide eggs he would not have an easy time of it.

When I was a kid we would always go to my grandparents and at the old church in the country the men would have build tables under the trees and the women would bring tablecloths and food and after service the kids would hunt eggs while they set the food out.

Quote: Well pleaseth me the sweet time of Easterr That maketh the leaf and the flower come out. - Bertran de Born

The Future

Sometimes I wonder about the future and I have the image in my head of going to a fortune teller and having her laying out those cards where they can see your future. Then somewhere in the deck is one of those cards from a game of old maid and that is the one that comes out for me.

Actually sometimes I get all whiney that I may be alone for the rest of my life, but most of the time I'm okay with it.

Group Lunch

I know I'm trying to lose weight, but we had a work lunch and it was paid for. The Cotton Patch has food like Chicken and dumpling, fried okra and french fries with cheese and bacon all over them. A little too good to pass up. Some stuff I would have stayed away from, but it was passed in front of me a few times and I gave in.

I could not find my glasses

It was a rough beginning for the day until I did find them. I really need to keep up better and I should get a spare pair.

I can see, but not good enough to do all the things I want to. And apparently not well enough to find my glasses ;-)

The wind again

This morning I went to Whataburger to get a breakfast taquito and the girl at the window put my change in my hand. The wind took it right out of my hand and put it on the ground in front of my truck.

I was lucky it didn't blow far away and I was able to get it, but I am going to have to start being more careful with this wind. They say that March comes in like a lion and leaves like a lamb, but this is not March.

Spending the Night in the country

I spent the night at my parents house. There was a spiderweb above where I was sleeping, but I didn't want to disturb it and and have an angry homeless spider chasing me around, so I finally just went to sleep.

When I woke up I told my Mom before I got up about the spider and she took a broom and knocked down the web right over me. That did get me up.
