I completely forgot to post last week with all the busy, and this week is just about as crazy. Halloween parties, a wedding, and my last two weeks working at the school. Tomorrow is my last day of that, in fact. It’s been a good run, but they have no more money to pay me with, so that’s that. Gotten a few things taken care of, have a few more to do yet. Tires are next up, been too busy to get to the shop thus far. One medical bill paid off. Another sent to collections because they stopped sending us bills, so I had nowhere to send payments. Sorting that one out via email as I type… hopefully.  I don’t pay collections, I pay the people we owe.

No school after this week means I’ll be getting back on my improvement plans. Both job and web design. Working six days a week meant I had no energy left over for those things. We just transferred all our domains from Rich’s job at eCommerce over to our HostGator account, so soon, everything will be in one place.

Health seems pretty stable, no noticeable improvement, or deterioration.   Still not eating my best. Both stress and stress eating are no good for my joints. But I’m trying to be more conscious again. Still buying appropriate groceries and eating (mostly) appropriate lunches (I did have Cheddar Bay Biscuits today). It’s sweets and dinners I don’t cook that are my weakness and downfall. It just too cold out to want salad all the time. ::excuses, excuses, excuses:: But I’m doing alright.

The Holidays are heading our way, are you ready?

Do You Feel Older? July 29, 2010

That seems to be the question of the week. I have generally responded with: I’ve felt old since I was 17, I feel pretty good today. I had a wonderful birthday weekend with friends and chosen family. I didn’t see any of my blood family, but I did talk to both my parents and my brother. It was good to hear from them, too.

I ate a lot of wonderful food, both out at restaurants, and made specially for me. About half of it was healthy and good for me, about half of it was delicious anyway. 😉   My joints are getting back at me this week for it, though, so back to alkaline for me. Started the week with wheat grass juice, still tastes awful, but I’m getting better at drinking it. Inta Juice is a lovely shop and doesn’t charge nearly as much as Whole Foods used to (when they still had it).

For my birthday I got a couple books, some DVDs, some gaming dice and some clothes. Thanks go out to my parents and my in-laws for those. Knowledge, entertainment and clothing to go with the nourishment and fellowship. I also saw two movies, Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Inception. Next week, Cedar Point to top it off with a fun experiences.

Inception sent my mind whirling, partially about the topic of the movie, creating reality in dreams, but also into other types of reality creation. In parts of the movie the soundtrack/sound effects were quite blatant, and it made me think about creating with music. The moods and emotions that music invokes and the creativity it can inspire. I have always enjoyed fantasy stories where music is the medium of magic, because it is so meaningful to us and speaks to us in ways that words alone may not.

It also got me thinking about creating the reality I want to live in. Creating the life I want to have. Creating the online presence, websites, and business(es) I want to design. Mike’s getting advice for the Bookup.com website and one of the things that was said was he should fire his web designer. We both agreed with this advice and were glad that he didn’t hire me as his web designer. I don’t have the skills for that, we both know that, but they are skills I want to gain. At the moment I am more like his web programmer, he tells me what he wants and I make it happen. We both need advice and guidance in the design category. I am very grateful that this coach has some ideas in this area.

There are so many things I want to do, all spinning about my head. I want to learn WordPress, learn how to make custom Themes, create a website offering both these Themes and tips and tricks and advice for WordPress in general. I have a lot of WordPress references, books, websites, personal advice, that I would like to collect all in one place, for myself at the very least.

Next step, is a curiosity about Joomla. What it can do. What I can do with it. I have started gathering reference material, but I think WordPress first, it seems an easier thing to learn.

I also have writing projects, Traffic Ultimatum, Four Hour Work Week, affiliates, a gaming carry-all and getting out of Barnes & Noble running around in my head. Not to mention my simple weekly blogging, the growing stack of books I want to read, investing, and medical bills. Life is crazy, fun, wonderful, exciting and full of so many opportunities. I have My Next Thirty Years by Tim McGraw running through my head lately. They will definitely be the best years of my life.

That seems like a lot. Fifteen weeks…

This past week has gone fairly well. My elbow is still swollen, not terribly, and not painfully, but it won’t calm down completely. I haven’t decided what to do about that yet. A shot might help, but I really don’t want to. I did a lot of eating out, eating salads and such lately. Little too much bad stuff in my food, bread or rice noodles. I finally got groceries this weekend, lots of veggies and almonds. Still need to find reasonably priced almond butter. OMG that stuff is delicious. Regaining focus, though I’ve a zag day coming up this weekend. Schedule changes coming up. I’m trying to decide if I should how to set up regular exercise around a possibly newly regulated schedule. Come home at noon most days, if the pattern holds, exercise then eat lunch(or is it supposed to be the other way around?).  Then do my other jobs. It could work.

Food of the week: Almond butter on sprouted grain tortilla.
