Is it bad that one of the reasons I like going to yoga is because I can wear a sports bra and check out my abs in the mirror for an entire hour? Is it bad to be that into myself? You know what would be bad? If I posted that picture on this here blog … now that would be bad.
I made the best dinner yesterday. Pot roast with red potatoes, onions, carrots and mixed greens. That roast slow cooked all daggone day and by the time I fixed my plate … I was in heaven. I opened up a bottle of my favorite Bordeaux and honey, you couldn’t tell me I wasn’t living the dream.
I picked up the new home computer and the Prince set it up and we are up and running. The old computer was just that … old. It was slow and had no memory and just a pain the neck. No one ever used it. Now that we have the new one, I have to make an appointment to log on.
Another month and a half I will be relaxing at the spa for an entire weekend! Massages and body scrubs and yoga classes and lounging by a pool and good food. Life is so good.
I’m going to a new church now and yesterday was my second visit. So far I am really enjoying it. Sometimes it can be difficult to find a church that you feel is right for you. However, if you are a believer and have a strong relationship with God the search becomes less difficult. You know what is right and you can spot when things are a bit “off”.
Speaking of being “off”, I had a conversation with a friend over the weekend. She left her husband because he was physically and verbally abusing her. They’ve been married for six years and I’ve known her for at least four of those years and she never mentioned it. I didn’t have a clue. Anyway, she said that they had been in counseling for an entire year at their church. The church leadership knew that he was violent but advised her to stay and continue to pray for him and give him his respect. Excuse my language but what the fuck kind of guidance is that to give a woman that is getting her ass beat??????? I was in total shock when she shared this with me. They knew what was going on but they did not advise her to leave the violent situation. See why Christians get a bad rap? I remember when I divorced my second husband. My so-called church family treated me like garbage after that. I guess a divorced woman did not fit into the mold of what a “good Christian” should be. Needless to say, I got to steppin’.
I had such an amazing weekend and coming into the office was not something that I was exactly looking forward to. But hey, without this paycheck I wouldn’t be able to have my amazing weekends, right? Gotta look at the bright side people.
I saw Just Wright on Saturday … Common is just as fine as he wants to be.
Good movie. I’m actually looking forward to seeing the final Shrek movie this coming weekend
and then SATC 2 the weekend after that.
Well, 12% of my credit card balance is paid and I haven’t put anything else on it. I’m doing really well with my spending. Yes, I got a facial this weekend but I budgeted for that. There has been no un-budgeted spending and I feel pretty good about that.
I guess I’ve rambled enough for this Monday morning. What’s going on with you?
