Thankfulness

Hello everybody,

Today I am just thankful for what I have in my life.  A great family, my job, the little boy I work with, no debts, my health, a nice place to come home to , my two miniature pinchers, the snow that has fallen, the wind blowing the snow,  the bright sunshine, the innocence and trust that I see in the faces of the little 3, 4, and 5 year-olds that I work with, my coffee, and the quiet moment that I am enjoying right now.

The last couple of weeks have went by like a whirlwind.  I don’t know if I am coming or going.  I need some organization, please!!!!!!!  The laundry needs to be finished, dishes need to be washed, floors cleaned, and I just want to rest a few minutes.  I’m missing everyone’s blogs that I usually surf.  I really miss you all!!!  I feel like Rip Van Winkle that loses a couple of days at a time instead of 20 years.  Where does all the time go, I would like to know?!

I think I will start making little posts every day or so.  My life is not all that adventurous, and I hope I don’t bore everyone to crocodile tears.  Blogging is something I really like to do.  I like reading blogs, too.  I feel connected in a fun way.  It’s like we are all sending out messages in a bottle, wondering who will come across them and who will send a reply back.    Blogging is adventure for me.  I see the world through someone else’s eyes.  I am refreshed.  I appreciate those of you that have kept up with my silly blogs and those of you that keep tossing the bottle back.  Please keep the game going.  You’re fun to play with!!!

My Favorite Movie: Gone With The Wind

‘Gone With The Wind’ is my favorite movie of all time.  I love the romance of the movie.  This video showcases the sparks that fly between Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler.  The song in the video is great, too.  I found it on YouTube.  The song is called ‘I Want To Love You Madly’ by Cake.

I think Clark Gable in this movie is SO charming and lovable!  I fell in love with Rhett when I was a teenager and I’m still not over him.

I also love the part in the movie where Scarlett says, “Tomorrow is another day.” She has such spirit and passion to live.

Sweet Home Alabama

Alabama is my sweet childhood  home.  Today I’m leaving Kentucky in hopes of  being with my family.  I love, love, love my dad and step mom.  They are always there for me.  They make me feel special every time I talk to them.

I want to say hi to all my new friends here on Word-Press and Happy New Year!

Here’s another one of my favorite songs.   I am so ready to sing and come home to Alabama!  It has been a long time.”,,,,here I come, Alabama!”

‘TURN IT UP!!!!’

Blogging(It’s a Whole New World)

Today marks two weeks blogging for me.  I love it!  What a great way to express yourself!  And also, what a great way to learn about people in general–their interests, thoughts, and advice.  Much can be gained through blogging.  It has given me a new sense of peace, sparked my imagination, and uncluttered my mind.

On this website I have come across many wonderful, interesting people that blog about their lives.   I love to tag surf with those I have things in common with.  I have found out that people are more friendly in their comments than I would have believed.  People are just great!  I’m a people person.

I could stay on wordpress hours at a time.  I do believe I am hooked.

That Spirit of Christmas and Christmas Vacation

I love Ray Charles’ song,  “That Spirit of Christmas”.  It brings happy memories of past Christmases.

One of the best Christmas movies and also the funniest movies of all time ( in my opinion) is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.  The song, “That Spirit of Christmas” by Ray Charles, begins at 4:15 in this video.

I hope everybody has a great Christmas day!  Let’s make many beautiful memories!

What is your favorite Christmas movie and song?  Please comment.

Hold On Tight To Your Dreams

This is another great song by ELO. It keeps me motivated. I love the beat and the lyrics.

Hold On Tight To Your Dreams by ELO

I like all kinds of music. Music makes the world go round.

I weighed this morning before breakfast. I was 140. Good! Yesterday at Shoney’s I didn’t eat any sweets. Can you believe it?

The last couple of days I have burned 250 calories each day on my treadmill. I would walk about 3 mph while listening to a song on my mp3 player, and then run about 5 mph on the next song, etc. I can run longer than I thought I could.
