Thursday Thoughts

Yesterday Mike was telling me about getting a verbal warning at work.  Basically I think they told him to slow down.  So he says he's slowed down and made a check list, to make sure everything get's done.  Things sure can get busy, especially in the holiday season.  Guess we could all use a check list this time of year, and maybe all the time if we are the kind that have a lot to do.  Sometimes I think about when I get upset or angry, if I had followed a checklist, maybe I would have got done something that I was upset wasn't done.  I think number one on my check list would be to stop, consider what I'm about to say before I say it, I think that would probably help a lot.  There's a lot of things I could put on the checklist that I havn't been getting around to lately.  Meditating, praying, exercising, yep, I've been getting lazy.  Not sure what it is about this time of year, but every years my back seems to start hurting the worst, my belly starts getting the biggest.  Then January rolls around and I start running again and getting ready for the Gate River Run, everything seems new and I start getting things in order.  Wonder if I could do that for the whole year before I get lazy near December.  The verse in the bible comes to mind.  "Love suffers long and is kind."  I can't believe it's December first already, man this year has flown.  I'm ready for a real vacation.  Somewhere exotic, or out west, or just out of town.  Disney World?  I don't know but I'm ready for one, even if I just have to take 4 or 5 days and relax. I havn't been writing as much lately it seems, not sure why.  Can't seem to get all my thoughts collected.  Been feeling more scatterbrained than usual.  :)  Well hope everyone out there is having a great week!

Maybe you just need to take a break from writing for a bit, Derek. I have to do that every once in awhile. Busy or not, I am looking forward to Christmas. I'm a child in a grown ups body when it comes to holidays. lol
Take care of yourself today. Do something that makes you smile. You're always in my prayers.

I am definitely more scatterbrained than ever before. Makes me wonder if my brain is being affected by those microwave towers we have nearby.

Have also been guilty of eating too much and exercising too little. I used to blame it on the cold weather when I lived up north (no desire to walk or jog or bike, because it was too cold outside). I can't do that now. The weather here has been absolutely gorgeous!

Take care,

Ah, I know just what you mean. For some reason, everything just builds up and gets on top of you> Somehow the new year seems to bring with it some kind of fresh start. I love it, can't wait. Hopefully I'll do better in 2006!

I get all scatter brained and unable to get my thoughts in order.  That's why I take those nice little Adderall pills.  For my ADD.  Works wonders. lol.  But I'm sure you don't have ADD!

If you look in the dictionary for the word scatterbrain, my picture would right next to it.  Yeah, this year has really flown by.

I've never been one of those people who makes a a "to do" list.  Other comments mentioned ADD and I'm pretty sure I have that too.  I'll just keep being my hyper, nervous self until I probably die of a stroke before I'm 50!!  ;)

Hug,
Russ
