On A Timetable To Clean Once Again

I have eight days to whip my place into shape once again. And I have to work and Christmas shop during that time too. Ouch. My niece is moving in with me, and I need to get her room in shape. And the rest of my house. Always a day and chore short! I bought a dirt devil dustbuster tonight and realized it has to be charged for 24 hours! That blows my plan to vaccum up the dog hair tonight. I need to do laundry, clean out her closet and change cat litter tonight. Surely I can get that done tonight. Can't I?

No Right Age To Go Through Menopause

This article says there is no right age to go through menopause, but that the average age is 51. You are not considered to be in menopause until you go 12 consecutive months without a period. It also gives some info as to some risk factors connected to menopause and heart disease, etc.

I have not gone through menopause yet, but I guess it could start at any time. One thing I don't like though is how some of my women friends talk about it all the time. I just can't get into that. It is not my idea of fun to be with a bunch of women talking about menopause and hot flashes. Yuck. But then I never liked hearing women talk about childbirth either. Boring!

Embarrassing Wardrobe Malfunction!

Ooh, another embarrassing wardrobe malfunction! And I am not talking about Nancy Grace's supposed wardrobe malfunction on Dancing With The Stars. I have a favorite pair of black slacks--they are Jones of New York and very nice. Slimming and stylish. I wear them all the time and can easily say they are my favorite pair of pants.

Well so obviously so that I realized Friday night there were two holes in my pants, right in both inseams. I was so embarrassed. I don't think anyone noticed, which is great. I had taken them out of the dryer and never notice the holes and put them on to go to a nightclub. I was sititng on a bar stool and thought all of a sudden that my pants felt funny. I went to the restroom and almost died when I saw the holes! I realize that it is a combination of my weighing too much and wearing the pants too much. How awful. I walked very carefully the rest of the night so as not to expose the holes. I would not have been able to get up and dance for anything!

Made me feel really ashamed that I have not lost weight yet. Trying, trying, least I need to try. My mindset is not right yet. But I want to lose weight this month. I want to look pretty again.

What have you googled today?

I don't know how I got through the day before google. I guess I used yahoo for searching then. But before that? I guess I went to the library or got information from the newspaper or TV or magazines. Seems like so long ago.

But now I google something multiple times a day. Weirdly enough, there are still times I can't find what I am looking for. Imagine that.

A lot of times I am looking for general information about something, but other times, I am wanting to find the name of a doctor or a business in my town. I guess there are some Local search marketing tools out there to help you find that kind of information. Usually my search turns up good results--most of the time but not always. Then I just try again!

Love Really Hurts After All

I saw this article today that says that pain from rejection comes from the same place in the brain as actual injury. Isn't that something? The theory is that in cave man days, it was important not to get rejected and then abandoned. So rejection hurt and people would work to prevent being rejected. Hasn't that gotten all screwed up in these modern times? Lol!

But rejection and breaking up does hurt like a physical injury. I know when I have gone through a breakup, it feels like I have a hole in the middle of my body. And I do feel abandoned and scared. So that theory rings true with me. But why is it that some people don't feel this bad or to this degree when they are rejected?

I Still Need To Lose Weight!

I am trying to find an easy way to kickoff my wieght loss. I used to buy a juice mix to do a three day juice fast, which would help you lose weight. I am going to look into some things like diet pills and something like
shakeology 3 day cleanse to see if they offer similar benefits. Wish me luck!

Achieving Work/Life Balance

How do you want to live your life? Chained to a desk, barely making enough money to get by, never having enough time off, never getting to travel as much as you would like? Worrying about your future and if you will have enough money to live out your golden years?

Or would you like to work hard and smart and fast--say four hours a week--and make lots of money, maybe six figures? And have plenty of time for yourself--to enjoy your family, to travel extensively, to relax, do your hobbies, and maybe volunteer?

If you said the latter, you are not alone. There are plenty of people who want to design their life around the four-hour work week idea. It is not a gimmick; rather it is hard work. You find your niche--freelance writer, computer guru, designer, whatever, and come up with a plan to leverage your knowledge and talents. Work hard and then start to outsource. And wala! You will achieve your dreams.
