30 days...30 blogs

In the next few days I will begin a 30 day blog challenge. Each day, beginning August 1, I will post on a different topic (about me). Some information will be duplicates, but I'll try to make it interesting. And since I write whenever the mood strikes me anyway, there will most likely be days with double or triple entries. I plan to make August the best month of my life, no matter what I have to do to make it so.

Through a mosquito's eyes...

Hated by everyone,

Hovering around day and night,

I risk my life for a meal.

Your bare sweaty skin attracts me.

An animal would be an easy alternative,

But not nearly as sweet.

I know you hear me buzzing overhead,

While you sleep I creep in.

An ankle is a good spot, or maybe a toe...

I can get my fill before the stinging sensation awakes you.

But one bite is no longer enough,

The cycle that was chosen for me.

And just when I'm totally sustained,

Thwack! It all ends...

I have been really slacking on my weight loss goals. I try to eat right, but I have an occassional set back. I haven't been doing my weekly menus or food inventory for about a month now. I have all these apps on my phone that are supposed to help me keep track of everything and they do work. But truth be told, I havent been using them because I got discouraged looking at the numbers on the scale and started thinking whats the point. I havent exercised in a while, other than walking, mainly because I dont have the space, but its really no excuse.

We all fall off the wagon sometimes but I'm determined to get back on. I know Friday is a weird day to start a plan, but if I dont do it today, tomorrow will never come. So, I will get my menu planned this afternoon, finish my inventory which I started on Wednesday and not pay attention to the numbers anymore, which I've said in the past but now I gotta stick to it. Healthy is my main goal and I wont let that go.

An Overwhelming Update

Since my last post I've been through a lot of things, some good, some bad, some indifferent.

I once again had something taken from me with no regard. Material things are replaceable, but the fact that someone stole from me, someone who I more than likely see on a regular basis, just hurts. I asked myself why me? Why do bad things keep happening to me? Then I thought, maybe its not me. Some people are just evil, but I cant think that way either because God says love thine ememies too. He knows my heart. I do whatever I can for everyone around me and that does not go unnoticed. So, I just had to take a step back and look at it that way. The person who stole from me will not prosper. God will take care of them just as he will take care of me in the opposite way. I was, am and will continue to be blessed!

I have still not moved but I am patient. The plans are set in motion and everything will hopefully come to pass.  I know I will not be dissapointed. My finances aren't the greatest, but I've come too far to turn back now. If I could handle living at my "dads" paying the bills on top of all the other stresses, being on my own should be easy.

Work is work, but I'm now laid off for a few weeks. Maybe the break is just what I need. Away from the stresses that my job can sometimes cause. I miss my supervisor and I know she needs me there, but we both decided that I would not work for free, so here I stay until I am able to get paid again.

My writing has fallen by the wayside for many reasons, but I plan to rectify that soon. With my "new" writing partner who is also my best friend, I have back and while I'd love for there to be more, I'm putting the relationship in God's hands. I had missed the communication we used to share, from a kind word to a listening ear to just a simple gesture that let us know we cared. I will never let that go again.

Rajaneé will be having her sweet 16 birthday party this year and plans are underway. Its hard to believe my baby is all grown up now. We're going to have a masquerade themed party and I hope it is the best party ever!

Love is a beautiful thing, revelations are awesome, prayer changes things and he just might be MY lobster.
