Goodbye November....

Well, it's the last day of November and December is less than an hour away.  I'm hoping that December is better than this month was, but I'm not holding my breath!  Today wasn't too bad.  I got in my walk and came home and did my workouts.  It was pretty nice outside.  A bit over sixty degrees out there.  I didn't wear my jacket long at all!

My friend carried me to a late lunch and then I came home and did housework until dinner time.  I had a late dinner, too!  Now, I'm going to do some work in my bullet journal and head for bed.  I didn't sleep well last night because of being stressed.  Hopefully I'll sleep well tonight.  Tomorrow is stretch day on the workout calendar and those are always nice!  I have to run errands after my walk tomorrow, too.  I need groceries and a few supplies.  I hope to get all that done and then come back here and not do anything until Saturday afternoon!

I got my letters ready to mail tonight. I meant to do that last night and mail them on today's walk.  I'll mail them tomorrow. I am mailing out two letters and I have one more to write.  I'm also sending an FB back to someone and I hope to become pen pals with them. ^_^

Starbucks again? Maybe.

So, I was sitting at home minding my own business when I got a text that stressed me the hell out.  I decided that I couldn't sit at home anymore so I got in my car (it was acting up on the way) and went to the post office to check my box.  Two letters!  I then came to Starbucks.  Tonight's experience was much better than last nights!  I got my latte and a chocolate chip cookie.  They were both delicious.  I was able to get a seat right away, but then I moved to a little table.  The place I was sitting was invaded by a noisy kid and that wasn't going to improve my mood one bit!

So, I am sitting here blogging and I've written two letters.  One that I already had and one of the two I got on the way over here.  I'll write the other one before I go or I might just save it as I just got it today!  Who knows?  The other one was unusual.  I never write back on the day I get letters. LOL  OH well.

I walked today and got in my workouts.  It was ab day. Ouch.  I did those, and then relaxed a bit before fixing lunch.  I am not sure what I'll fix for dinner.  That is some time away, so I guess I'll figure that out. Anyway, my stress levels have come down some since I got here, but I'm still a bit on the stressed side.  I still have to get home with my crazy car.

The reason for my stress?  I've lived in the house I grew up in since I was 3 years old.  My sister actually owns it.  I may be out on the street.  Considering that I'm on disability, I can't very well get a place to rent.  I hardly get by as it is.  I just don't know what to do at this point.  I'm just going to try to think of other things.  The coffee will help some. It's a good thing I don't smoke or drink!  I'd been up to five packs a day and drinking straight out of the bottle.  Did I mention that my sister who works full time wants ME to send HER money to help with the taxes on the house?! UGH

Can I go to bed now?

It's been a long day! I got in my walk and did my workouts.  There was the 1000 squat challenge on today's workout calendar.  Yes, I said one THOUSAND squats! Needless to say when I was done, my butt hurt. :p  I got that and my other workouts done though.  I did some cleaning in my room. I was looking for something and finally found it.  I organized a bunch of stuff that needed it while looking.  I really need to do all that organizing, so that was good.  I finally found the item I sought and it was in a easy place too.  Figures! Oh well, everything is all nice and neat and tidy!

I have some ideas of things to add to my NaNo novel.  I might just add those tomorrow.  Perhaps I'll take myself to Starbucks and write there.  That would be nice and it's been over a week since I've been.  Right now though, I'm going to finish posting this, do my French lesson, and then probably crash on my bed until bedtime.  I'm really tired.

Monday musings.

I went for my walk today and it was sunny and nice.  Well, it was a bit chilly, but I took care of that by wearing my hoodie.  I walked a bit further than I have been doing since I knew today's workout was a PIIT routine and it wouldn't take but half an hour to do.  They were only half an hour long, but they were HARD! I made it through though, so that was good.  After I finished my workouts, I took a small break and then washed dishes so I could fix lunch.  

I'm now sitting at my desk looking out the window and watching a show about the Heaven's Gate cult on HLN.  It actually aired last night, but I saved it to my 'DVR' and I'm watching it now.  I can't believe these people actually believed this stuff.  It's sad what some people believe!  

I read more of Sleeping Beauties last night.  I'm about 11% in and so far it's really good.  I think I'm going to like it.  It's got a lot going on.  After I finish posting here, I'll probably grab the Kindle and read some more on it.  I am in the mood to take a nap, but if I do, I won't sleep tonight.  I would take a bath, but I don't want to fall asleep in there. lol  I take really hot baths and they are sooooo relaxing!

Reading with coffee is life!

So last night, I went to the ebook section of my library on the laptop.   I wanted to see if I could get Stephen King's new book with his son Owen. I was also looking for the new Joe Hill book. (King's other son)  I found The Fireman available.  It's been out a while and I haven't read it yet.  I checked it out and then put a hold on Sleeping Beauties and Strange Weather.  It said I was on the wait list. One of them even said I was number 16 of 16 waiting.  Today, I get an email saying that both my books are available!  Weird.  So, I went ahead and sent them to my Kindle.  I'm almost midway through The Fireman. It's good so far.  It drew me in right away last night.  So much so that I was late going to bed! :P  After I finish it, I'll read Sleeping Beauties and then Strange Weather.  I still can't get over how they were both not available last night and now they are on my Kindle.  Weird!  Oh well!

I got in a bit of a longer walk today.  That was pretty nice.  I came home and relaxed a bit and then my workouts. It was stretch day on the calendar and it was much needed.  I love stretching.  I should start adding one of my her stretch videos to my regular workouts everyday.  I used to do one each night, but for some reason, I got out of the habit.  Maybe I should get back into that habit!  

Right now, though, I'm going to fix a cup of coffee and grab my Kindle. I want to read more of The Fireman.  I also need to write some notes for Nano.  I can't believe that it's less than a week away!  I'm still wavering between last years books continuation or something entirely different. 

Delicious errands!

I needed to take my book back to the library today and I wanted Starbucks.  I went out and my car started up okay, so I figured I would risk it.  I went and dropped the book in the book drop at the library and then went to Starbucks.  I got myself a cascara latte and a chocolate chip cookie.  It was so good!  It was a nice treat.  I had my cookie warmed and it was delicious.  I came home and my car did okay.  I am happy to have gotten my errand done and I was definitely happy to get Starbucks!

I took my walk earlier today and then came home and did my workouts.  I was getting back from my walk and there was a train completely blocking the track leading into my neighborhood.  I didn't want to stand there for who knows how long, so I walked down to the next crossing.  Unfortunately, that meant I had to walk on the side of the road for a bit.  I get to the other crossing and I'm walking up to it when I hear the gates coming down!  I had to wait for another train and then I finally was able to get into the neighborhood and head home.  I was so frustrated, but I had coffee when I got here, so that helped. :P  I had a little time to relax before starting my workouts, so that was good.  There were two on there that are not my favorites.  I was not happy, but I did them! ^_^

I'm watching Primetime Justice with Ashleigh Banfield on HLN and then I'm going to fix some dinner.  I enjoy this show.  I found it not long after it debuted on HLN.  I hope it sticks around!

Green lemon?!

So, I was talking to a friend tonight about French and different words.  I was telling him that lemon was citron in French and I kept meaning to look up lime to see what lime was.  I finally did once I got home and it's 'citron verte'  that is lemon green or green lemon.  So a lime is a green lemon in French. :P  I thought that was funny!

I got in my walk and workouts today.  I actually walked a little further today than I've walked in the last few days.  I still got home in time to relax a bit before my workouts.  I got those in and it was Total Terror.  That wasn't too bad.  I got those done and then did some yard work.  I texted a friend to tell him about that and he asked if I wanted to go to eat.  I always want to eat, so I said yes. :P  We did that and then I came back here.  I wanted to go to Starbucks, but I forgot to ask him to run me by there.  D'oh!  Oh well.  Maybe I'll make it this weekend.  I called my other friend to see if she wanted to go, but she was at the salon. 

I didn't get around to finishing my book last night so I didn't carry it to the library today.  Hopefully tonight I'll get finished.  It's not much of it left.   


No rolls today. :p

I actually was on one again earlier, but yeah.  I really need to start coming up with some snappy titles for my posts! lol  I took my walk before my workouts today.  I got home in plenty of time to cool off and relax before working out.  It was ab day. Ouch! LOL  I got through those and then relaxed a little bit before eating.   I didn't do a lot of anything else today.  Well, I read a lot of Not Always Right. :P  After I post this, I'm going to finish the book I'm reading.  I might walk to the library tomorrow to take it back.  Not sure yet.

I washed a load of clothes and put those away.  I have been sort of lazy today.  Except for my walk and workouts, I really haven't done much of anything. I love reading Not Always Right I get sucked right in.  I worked in retail so I totally can related to that site!  You can visit the site yourself by clicking on the the link above.   

Back on track, today!

Yes, everything was normal today.  I did my usual routine and it was nice!  I decided to get a walk in, too! I went about 5 and walked to the post office and then back home.  It got dark a lot quicker than I had planned!  It was almost complete dark when I got back to the house.  I will have to either go earlier or not go as far from now on.  It's only going to get worse when the time change happens!  Oh well, at least I got in a nice walk. 

I wanted to share a picture I took as I was heading home. I thought the sky was beautiful.  Here is the picture I took:


Of course it was much prettier in person!  I also have a picture of my Nano Bujo word count tracker page:


Last year, I had a printable on the right and I wrote my characters on the left.   I'm going to do the same this year.  I'll put my characters that are already there, and then I'll have a spot to add any new ones that I put in book two. ^_^

In case you were wondering about last night, yes, I did my workouts! 


I can sit and write a blog post for today.  It's been a long and busy one!  This morning, I got up and took the dogs out and then brought them in and had some glorious coffee.  I really needed it as I slept horribly last night.  I enjoyed every sip!  I did a few of my morning things and then had breakfast and more coffee! :P  I called my friend around 1:30 to check on their progress home.  They had just walked in their door!  I was surprised!  I jumped up, dressed, and walked the two dogs up.  Then, she drove me back down to get the crate and food that was left.  I rode with her to take that back and then I headed home.  I was going to do my workouts right then as it was almost time to do them, but I was tired and hot so I decided I'd get them in later.

I watched Sailor Moon until time for lunch.  I'm less than ten episodes from finishing! WAH!  I had a delicious lunch and then I went for a walk.  I walked down to Ballou Park.  I went in the park and then across the street into the shopping center.  I went in Dollar General to look around and then headed back.  I got a cute reusable drink cup in there that looks like a cola can.  It has  pink lid and there are gumballs on it.  I didn't really need it, but I bought it.  I thought it was on sale for 70% off, but it only rang up as 25% off.  I declined at first, but she tossed it in a hand basket to take back later and I felt bad for it so I bought it! LOL  Yeah, I'm weird.  In any case, it's now sitting here on my desk until I decide if I'm going to use it for drinks or for something else!

I ran out of the creamer that I really like today.  It's International Delight brand and the flavor is Caramel Macchiato.  When I bought it this month, I had a coupon for two of their products.  I got one of those and one of the one touch latte cans.  I also saw the store brand of the caramel creamer and decided to try it.  I did and it's almost exactly the same at the ID one. It's good and a bit cheaper.  That is always a good thing!

I came back from my walk and relaxed a bit.  It was really hot as I walked pretty fast.  I had my dinner and then watched some shows on HLN.  I did my workouts.  I washed two loads of clothes today and both are put away.  I also took a bath and washed my hair.  I'm all caught up on everything I needed to do today.  Go me!  Now, I'm just going to grab the Kindle and read until bedtime.  I hope to sleep well tonight.  I'll have the bed to myself, so that might help. You wouldn't think two little dogs would take up SO MUCH space! LOL!
