It's Snowing!

I love it!! Technically, last night was the first snowfall. It was more like a mixture of snow and rain. There are big flakes coming down this morning, but it will probably turn to rain. I love it when it snows. Of course, it's not pretty when you can't get around, but a little bit of snow is nice.

It's been a mild winter so far. I know winter has been around for about a month, but this is the first snowfall. In fact, only this past past week has it actually felt like winter with the temperatures dropping to the 20s. No complaints here! I should probably crochet or knit up some gloves/mittens before the weather gets really cold. I realized that the two pair of gloves that I have are these old hand knit gloves I bought when I was a senior in high school. Ya! Time for new ones.

You know what? It's already turned to rain. I guess that's it for the snow today.

An Actual Three-Day Weekend

Can you believe it? Boy, did I need it. I decided to take a few days to relax because I was burning out. I couldn't handle working six days a week. I needed a break. My job situation has to change soon, very soon. Friday night, I went to sleep at around 10:30. I woke up a few times throughout the night (I never sleep the entire night through), but didn't get out of bed until I think 11:00 in the morning. Later on, I took about a two hour nap. Yup, I definitely needed the rest. It was so nice to actually take it easy for once. Today I stayed home because I wasn't feeling all that great (I guess I'm just tired). Now of course it's two in the morning and I can't sleep. Whatever, I can't complain.

I'm thinking that I have a few more weeks of working six days a week. Hopefully, I'll start making money at my new job pretty soon. I need this job to workout because I'm tired of bartending. I don't want to be on my feet anymore and I want to have weekends off. Two days off together makes all the difference. I'm able to get stuff done. With my current schedule, I only have Sundays to get things done. Of course, nothing ever gets done because I don't have enough time.

Alright, let me try going to sleep. I do actually have to go into work tomorrow. Good night and wish me luck on making some cash (pleeeeaaaaaassseeee).

New Looks

In more ways than one! I've been contemplating whether or not to change the look of the blog. It will be three years that I've been writing and felt it was time for a change. I'm not sure if it will remain this way. I might tweak it some more or might change it all together. Who knows?

The other new look is my hair. I chopped it off! I don't have a picture of it, but I can't pull it back. It's short! I've been itching for a haircut lately. My hair had gotten way too long and it was looking flat and boring. The haircut was a spur of moment thing. SG and I went to the diner for breakfast. Four hours later, we each had new hair styles. I don't regret it one bit. I hope Dan doesn't either. He hasn't seen it yet!

Just Stuff

Restaurant work has slowed down to a screeching halt. My cue to really get things going at the other job. Well, I'm already working hard. I'm staying late calling people all day long. Once I get the laptop working (or buy a new one), I'll start calling people from home. Besides helping people out with their finances, I'm able to work from home, which I love.

Changing the subject, I've been in a bad mood the last few days. I wake up cranky and remain that way throughout the day. The good thing about this is that I try to tone it down and I don't let it bother me so much. This makes a huge difference on how I interact with people. I'm still laughing and smiling. I don't let my bad mood control me. In fact, whenever I get a bad thought in my head, I release the thought. If I can't get it out of my head, than I deliberately begin thinking about my new job. I'm so excited about the prospects of this job that I begin imagining myself talking to people constantly.

Let me tell you, it works. I immediately begin seeing the difference. I believe that like attracts like. I've mentioned this before in other posts. When I'm in a bad mood, stupid stuff happens all around me. For instance, the other day I couldn't get a seat on the train going into Manhattan. My stop is the second stop to Manhattan. There's no reason why I would be able to sit. I got to work and everything was misplaced, the dishwasher wasn't working, and I spent sometime reorganizing the bar before I began working.

I got over being mad and began thinking up scenarios about the other job and the day went smoothly. I got out early, went home, and relaxed. I'm telling you, whatever is going through your head affects everything around you. So, I'm working on my bad mood. I haven't been able to shut it off completely because I'm even having bad dreams. I do know that it will eventually leave and I refuse to let it control me.

Anyway, that's about it with my life. Besides being very tired, not much else is going on. I'm working on my meditation (although last night, I completely fell asleep on the couch). In fact, I'll let you go. I think I'll meditate for a bit this morning.

How Did You Start off the New Year?

I had a great start to the New Year. I actually slept in until 10:30! My knee that was killing me the night before to the point that I could barely go up the stairs was fine. In fact, I woke up with my legs bent (I sometimes cross my legs in a weird way while I'm sleeping). I relaxed all day and then went out for some shopping.

Lately, I've had the knack to find great deals. I stumbled across a Nine West outlet store (I love 9 West shoes) and found a pair of boots that were originally $100 for $31! Can you believe that? I should have gotten two pairs. I might go back today and see what else I find.

When we got home (Dan and I), we sat around and watched the Fiesta Bowl. I'm getting the hang of football ever since Dan has patiently been explaining it to me. Of course, I didn't stay up to watch the whole game, but I knew what was going on. Dan kept on yelling (he was rooting for Boise State). It was really nice to hear him having fun.

I did get to do some major meditation last night, which was great. If you haven't meditated before, I suggest you start even if it's five minutes at a time. I love how it feels. I go to sleep so soundly afterwards. I bet if every single person took time to look inward, there would be less violence. I want to start doing a morning meditation, but that one might be difficult for me. I'm afraid I'll fall back to sleep. It's something I need to work on.

Tomorrow there is cause for more celebration! It's Dan's birthday!! I'm taking off work and we're doing whatever he wants. That's right, I'll have an extra day off this week. It's suppose to be gorgeous tomorrow. We'll be in Manhattan all day hanging out. Happy Birthday Babe!!!

I'm looking forward to the rest of 2007. Personally, I feel that it will be a tremendous year for me. I hope that all of my goals come true. I'll be working on them. I wish that all of you feel happy in your own way. Happy New Year!
