Enjoying the Bakewell Lake House

As we settle in after a wonderful Thanksgiving feast we are thankful for friends, family, and a wonderful dinner.  We shared love, we shared dreams and most of all we shared ourselves with one another. As this day comes to a close we are thankful for each and very person that is in our lives!

The holidays are upon us...live well, laugh much and love often!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Gateway to the City

Do you see what I see? I drive this street every-day. It’s a main thoroughfare, and some call it the gateway to the city. It follows the direction of the rising and setting sun and will take you through cities near and far. As I pull out of my driveway, I look up to see the familiar green and white street signs which read East Third Street and Garland Avenue mounted on a tall utility poll. I check to make sure my seat-belt is fastened for our journey through a small section of the city of Dayton.

Everything Happens For A Reason

Let me first start his blog off by saying although right now everything seems uneasy and in chaos, everything happens for a reason. I'm not sure how to even begin to tell you the emotions that are running through my mind and even my heart. WIth this being said, For those that follow Stonesoup blogs and haven't heard Amanda and I have decided to start on different paths. We both know that most of you will not understand and quiet frankly I'm not sure we both know everything yet either but right now it is of our best interests to not be together.There will be alot of changes going on in the next few months, we will both be moving to different places and we will each be starting over again. There is nothing anyone can do to fix this. We are going to try and remain friends as we hope each of you will remain our friend as well. Change is hard but as we each know sometimes it has to happen so we can learn another life lesson. Please feel free to keep us both in your prayers...I don't know about Amanda but I will take all of those I can get. As much as I hate change I know that this is for the best and I am going to embrace this and see what is instore for me!

Thank you everyone!

Looking back....

As the year 2011 comes to an end I wanted to take a minute and reflect on a few things. This year has flown by and in a way I am glad to see it go. Not that anything went really bad this year but I am looking forward to a fresh start. 2011 I changed jobs in March and it ended up being a blessing. I am blessed to have great friends and wish I could see you all more often :0)

A week of shame

Ok so I have been checking on all of you but I have stayed away from the blogging due to a really bad week and a half.  With the storms here in Ohio my father didnt have heat for a few days and had to stay with me....well that in its self is enough to make you feel like a teenager again.  He is a meat and potato kinda guy and doesnt eat spices and all of that so I had to adjust to him...Also he wont stay at my house if I am not there so I didnt get to the gym either.  On top of that after he got his heat on my furnace went out.  I have 3 little dogs so I cant just pack up and take them just anywhere so I had to find space heaters so we could all stay here.  So I was stressed and of course ate bad or didnt eat at all.  I know better.  (Yes I know there is space at some of your houses I am just blowing off steam) Then with all of this going on my boss is being a horses behind and we had it out today. It really like talking to a 3 year old.  They only hear what they want and I had to tell him to shut the hell up so I could answer his question.  Not one of my finer moments.   It was a yelling match for a bit all over something I cant remember 30 days ago....come on now who really remembers ever cash register transaction they have ever rang....Oy Vey.  To come home to find out the furnace guy couldn't fix it today they had to order a part that should be in in the morning.  Ok I understand that I dont have alot of patients but to test it all on the same week I am feeling is a bit much for me.

So with that being said......I have gotten the exercise ball back out and in the way so I will use it.  I will go to the gym tomorrow and work off some of this anxiety that I cant seem to get rid of.  Please say a few prayers for me as I try and wrap my head around all the crap that I will call my life this week.

I also didnt measure or weigh in this week.  So know it wouldnt be good.

Peace and Love  -  P
