Conversation #127: A bulleted list, because I have never done one before

Wow - I can't believe it is already January 12!  I apologize for being MIA since the first of the year.  Basically, I have been away from home the last three weekends and various days in between, and I thought it would be fun to get sick last Tuesday and stay sick until who knows when!!!  Can you tell I'm over being sick?  Hopefully I'm on the downward slope of this thing.

So the list:
  • I went to the doc when I got sick (I never go) and now I remember why.  My regular doc was busy and I wanted to get in ASAP to make sure I didn't have strep throat before going out of town.  Well, I went in for a strep test and left having that done, plus an EKG and a blood test for mono and a few other things.  All came back normal or negative (for strep and mono).  Other than the strep test, I could have told you that. Hope that bill isn't too high or I will be kind of mad
  • I haven't had a desire to shop much lately, which is great because I need nothing.  I have a bday coming up and have requested some "wants" so hopefully this quells the shopping for a bit.  I totally failed the Retail Detox, but my plan was to keep trying until I succeed!
  • My alma mater won their bowl game, and even though I was sick, I was glad to be there to see them win!
  • I think everyone at work thinks I have the plague.  You see, I stayed home 4 days last week so I wouldn't give them what I thought was strep.  Now I think I just have an awesome cold compounded with allergies so I sound awful, but I feel silly staying home because my mental capacity is fine (no comments please, haha).  I actually had to leave early one day this week because all of the meds me super sick to my tummy.  Not cool.
  • My nose hurts. I have a date with the grocery store after work so I can stock up on some lotion kleenex.
  • My mind is pretty much on politics full time now that the fuzzy, warm Christmas season is over.  I allowed myself to check out the last couple of months, but we are in full campaign season now, folks.  I'll say it, I think Santorum is my guy, but he can't get enough oomph, and I think it is because Paul keeps dividing the others going against Romney.  Okay, Newt might be dividing too.  I think we need one other person versus Romney and go from there.  I don't hate Romney, just not my fave either.
  • Resolutions.  I want to make a list still, but I read something one day that made me realize my ultimate resolution should be to glorify God.  Period.  So that is number one, but I think I will still make a list of goals.
  • I get MLK, Jr. day off for the first time ever this Monday.  My school never took it off - they said we would learn more about him and honor him by being class (which is probably true).  However, at this time in life, I am excited for a 3-day weekend!
  • No outfit pics lately - I haven't felt good enough to care too terribly much about what I'm wearing.  Sad I know.  I might feel better if I put more thought in it, but sleepless nights will do that to you.
  • Last bit of exciting news - I was accepted to sit for the PE exam!  Now the real hard part comes in me studying for the exam.  That shall begin at the end of January.
Okay, that is all for now.  I'll try to have some more fun posts from now on :)

Conversation #114: Wardrobe Checklist (and retail detox update)

I read something a while back that sort of spurred me into thinking I needed to do this whole retail detox thing.  I'm just going to get it out there - it has been way hard for me and I'm super embarrassed and disappointed by that.  I did well for the first two weeks, and then I got into this buying and returning things habit because I felt bad after buying it.  I told myself that I could still buy things, but only with extra money I earned from ebay.  That worked for a while too, but then I caved to the Lands' End Canvas sale last weekend.  I bought three tees, a skirt, and a cardigan.  I think that all but maybe one tee will be going back and hopefully I can stop this extra shopping. 

Okay, back to the "thing" I read...

It was an article in Real Simple magazine targeted at helping you never buy the wrong thing again.  It has great tips in it, and the wardrobe checklist it includes really brought it all back home to me.  I started going through the checklist an…

The Post Office Blonde Moment

(Photo from: http://www.nauvoonews.com/nauvoo_photos.htm)

So I found a new satchel purse that I'm very excited about.  I got a better deal on this one than the other, and it is from one of my favorite purse companies, The Sak.  Here is a picture of it:
I decided that I needed to return a purse I bought from them a couple of weeks ago though to feel good about this purchase.  I bought it thinking I would love it, but I just couldn't make the shape fit for me.  I let it sit for a week or so, but it wasn't happening.  I was just going to keep it because the thought of returning it sounded like a hassle until this bag was revealed on their website, and it was waaaaay marked down for a week!  I decided I would just send the other one back, and so began the post office debacle.

I lost a little faith in the USPS this week - at least the local one near me.  I went on Monday night to pick up a priority mail box, and they were all out.  Plus, there were like 20+ people in line.  I de…

Conversation #204: My Jesus...

Oh Facebook and social media of all kinds...we have a love hate/relationship.  Lately, these days, I feel it is more hate only because I allow myself to be depressed by things I see.  I recently told someone the other day that I had lost faith in humanity, and then it hit me, that is exactly where I should be.  We are a fallen people in a fallen world, and I should have NO faith in humanity.  Why did that take me 30 years to figure out?

So there has been a lot of political/social stuff swirling around, and division among Christians, and I hate it.  Like I said, I have no faith in humanity and realizing that was a good reminder it should ALL be in the Lord.  Even though there are definitely things going on in this world that reject the truth of the Gospel, Jesus, the thing that scares me the most these days is the phrase I alluded to in the title: "my Jesus wouldn't believe this" or "I can't follow a God that would say that" or "I just don't believe…
