The Mental Debate Rolls On… July 18, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — miss3h @ 12:24 am

I have debated, weighed the pros and cons, pondered, basically changed my mind at whim…why? Yep. It’s 10-year-reunion time. I’m going (I think?)…but not without fear(s).

The Fears
1. My husband. Although I have a very handsome and (in my eyes) successful hubby, he will not be able to attend my high school reunion. I’m sure he is glad to get out of it…lol…but I feel like my security blankie has just been flushed down the toilet! PLUS…hubby is a soldier and I absolutely do not want my reunion to turn into a political debate. Might kinda put a damper on the “fun”. I plan to take lots of pics of him and my cute doggies for people to see. He exists! I swear! lol

2. I’m no longer 110 lbs. I know I still look alright, but seriously, in high school I was super thin. Kinda hard to not look fatter than 110, ya know? So far I am on track to be at my goal weight by September (no…not 110), but I still feel very self-conscious about going.

3. People are judgemental. So I’m a waitress. Yes, I make much more than people might think…but like I am gonna go around telling everyone how much I make! It is just silly that those who do not work at all might look down on my profession. *sigh* I imagine running into a former bimbo telling me she is now a rocket scientist for NASA and then smiling with perfect veneers and asking, “So what do you do?” I’m just gonna have to suck it up and deal with it I guess.

Despite all these fears, I want to go to the reunion. I had lots of friends in different circles. So even though my best friends might not attend, there are plenty of others that I would like to catch up with. Many I have only contacted through myspace and not seen since ’98, so that is the fun part.

So did you go to your 10 year reunion? And if not, why? If so, how did it go?

 

Happy Bastille Day! July 14, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — miss3h @ 11:35 pm

Today my co-workers and I celebrated “Bastille Day”. I work in a French restaurant and Bastille Day is basically the French Independence Day. We had so much fun! We had a pool party where everyone brought something: burgers (royales with cheese…seen Pulp Fiction? lol), hot dogs or “chein chaud” in French, fruit, cheese, wine…it was a French/American feast!

We just relaxed by the pool for a few hours. It was a great way to reconnect with my co-workers and just chill out on my day off.

Happy Bastille Day everyone!

 

Healthy Competition July 12, 2008

Move studio where I take dance is having a contest…and I WANT TO WIN! hee hee hee

Basically the contest is this: They see how many classes you took in the past month. The person who increases their Move Studio class attendance the most in the next month (beginning July 14th) will win a FREE UNLIMITED MONTH PASS!!! Now that is what I call “healthy competition”! It is just the kick in the pants I needed to start going to 6 classes a week instead of 2 or 3. (more…)

 

Attachment July 10, 2008

Filed under: Emotions,Peace,Solutions — miss3h @ 11:40 pm

The instructor of my “dance fusion” class yesterday (Renee) made such an interesting comment. She loves to dance, but she said yoga is the key to her success. It keeps her flexible and she said it has taught her to remain unattached to people, places, and things. I tend to think of yoga as “new age” but this is very inline with Christian thinking.

I think as people we do tend to worry a lot and get very attached to our loved ones and possessions. I think there is a level of attachment that is okay to God: love, caring, and wanting people in your life. However, when we allow a certain person, place, or possession to ruin our day, I think we are not pleasing God.

I’m thinking of taking a few of Renee’s yoga classes. It seems relaxing and I could use the lessons in flexibility as well as some stress relief.

Have y’all taken yoga? What did you think?

 

Clean House! July 9, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — miss3h @ 12:30 pm

They say cleanliness is next to godliness. Well, I’m not sure I believe all that…but it does feel good to be clean and organized. My house has been a wreck for a few weeks now. Last week I did actually get some gumption to at least clean the kitchen after admitting to a friend that it was ridiculously dirty in my house. Today, I have been cleaning the rest: bathroom, floors (including steam cleaning), laundry, the whole she-bang. This weekend I will just have to work on filing the mail that I allowed to pile up.

I’m not sure that being clean brings you closer to God on its own, but with some work, it could! I mean, you could put on some praise music while you clean and even sing along. And you will feel obedient after the work is done because God certainly must be disappointed in my recent pity party and laziness. I pray to thank Him for strength, good friends, and motivation. :)

–> What the bible says about laziness:

Proverbs 19:15 says, “Laziness brings on deep sleep, and the shiftless man goes hungry.”

I think this means that being lazy only breeds more laziness. I mean, as your mess grows, so does your comtempt for having to clean it up! It seems more and more futile to try to get it clean. However…

–>What the bible says about hard work:

Revelation 2:2 says, “I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance.”
Proverbs 14:23 says, “All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.”

So I guess cleanliness is pleasing to God. It requires hard work and perserverance. It brings a profit of the pure joy of accomplishment.

Do you guys read The Fly Lady website? She is really funny and motivating. I need to start reading her site more and following her advice.

Gottta go clean more! I hope you get time to do some de-cluttering of your own life this week. You’ll be surprised how much stress you can relieve by getting some things done that you have been putting off. :)

 

The Lord Made Me Brunette July 6, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — miss3h @ 12:20 am

First, some background information. Many of you know, but since childhood, I have always had a strong urge to cut my own hair. And I did. And dye my own hair. Highlight my own hair. 95% of the time, it turns out great. People have no idea it is a “home job”. However…I fear today was my last “home job”. It is with sadness and a new-found outlook that I am giving up my habit of home-hair experimentation. I am going out with a bang though… (more…)
