I finally wrote to my mom and dad about my upcoming Boston Trip. It was much easier than I anticipated. But, then again, everything usually is. The anticipation is usually worse than the actual action.
Anyway, I've been exhausted. I think it's because of the non-stop running around I've been doing. Not to mention the blazing summer heat all week. Every day I think to myself, "I'm going to go home and arrange my living space." I know that would do me a world of good. My altar [or as SloMo and Robbie call it: my shrine] is empty. I rearranged my room about a month ago. And still nothing is organized. Most of my shriney stuff is still in a box on the floor. Some of my office files are in a box at my feet.
And when I had to uninstall/reinstall programs on my computer last week, I didn't notice till this week that I lost ALL of my AOL files. All emails. All correspondence. Including business stuff. Not good. [which reminds me, I have to print a few invoices] But hey, it's a clean slate. I never would've done it on my own. Apparently the universe took care of that for me. Thank you Mercury. Argh.
I haven't been eating as well as I was when I "took control of my diet" [thank you Coy for that true reflection]. I went on vacation a month ago. And even though I'm physically back home, my spirit and attitude are still on vacay-mode. It's okay. But I do notice a shift in my body and my attitude. Coffee, ice cream and carbs have all been reintroduced to my system. And I think nothing of it when I go to the freezer for 'just one more taste of heaven.' The amount of caffeine I've been having lately is surely weighing on my energy levels. I can hardly start my day without a cup of coffee [or a latte]. Not only is it a physical dependency but it's damn expensive!
It's time to buy a coffee maker again. I had given mine up over a year ago. I was drinking tea for a long time. Now I know, I'm a coffee-addict. I must buy a coffee press so I can save money. Because, obviously, not having a coffee maker doesn't stop me from having coffee. I'm afraid to count how much I spend on coffee each week. But I know it's at least $20. And that's enough to drive me crazy. Ooooh, just thinking about it makes me want more! Stop the insanity!
My dogwalking is going strong. But not as hectic as it had been for a while. I'm not hiking in the mornings anymore. And that creates a huge difference in my energy and in my body. I need to force myself to find ways to exercise again. But Hunny and I will have both Winnie and Sparky here all week next week. They will surely keep me active.
Did I mention we're having a heat wave? I've been taking my dog group out earlier than usual so we miss the blazing heat of the day. And still it's over 95-degrees by 9am. Makes me really lethargic. Where is Fall already? [as soon as it comes, you know I'll be missing Summer!]
I ran out of FTP space so posting this entry took longer than expected. Time to clean that out. Guess I have another project to add to my list!
Happy Friday everyone.
