Writer's Workshop

It's that time of the week again! Mama Kat's hosting her Writer's Workshop today so head on over there to check it out. This week I'm choosing more than one prompt because...well, they all sound good.

#2: If I could take tomorrow off work I'd...

Spend the whole day with Moose. We'd go for a walk in the morning, take a nap in the afternoon, and read all afternoon. It'd be nice to have only his nose (and rear) to wipe, only him to feed, and only him to scold (although he's pretty good about being good for his mom
my).#3: Write a letter to someone you miss greatly

Dear Mrs. Spiderlegs,
I know you haven't been gone AND we've talked almost every day this week BUT I miss you.a.lot. It's crazy how many times you and Kurt come across my mind during the day. I always knew you were my best friend ever since I asked you to be my bridesma
id LONG before the wedding. But it wasn't until you moved that I realized how big a part in my life you play. You are such an encouragement to me spiritually and otherwise. Sometimes only you can make me see how stupid I'm being when Big A & I have fights (because, let's be honest, it's usually my joke). And I cannot WAIT to (hopefully) live MUCH closer so we can play pitch (or Egyptian Rat Slap) every night and go for walks. It'll be nice to be in the same zip code again so we can stop being phone people again.
Love you and miss you!

Dear Pookie,
Sorry I'm missing your volleyball season (again). I really wish I could live closer to you (yet I'm going to probably be moving further away) because I wish I could influ
ence your life more. It's hard being away from you when you're in high school; it's so easy to lose your way while you're there. I know you have (thankfully) learned from most of my mistakes, but there are a few I wish I could share with you (but I know you'd probably just shake your head and tell me you're not me...which you aren't, I just want to share the warning). I miss you dear and hope to see you soon. Play hard, but for God not for anyone else.
Love you!
Dear Party Animal,
How I wish I lived in Hawaii so we could be closer (ok without the exp
ense). There are days when I want/need to talk to you but the time difference makes it impossible. I'm not going to call you at 5 in the morning. And thank you for being my sister and my friend. It was always an adventure with you and I wouldn't be who I am without you. I know you got me into trouble but you also got me out of trouble and you watched my back. I appreciate that. I hope you know I'd do anything for you.
I love you, Friend!

#4: 10 things I believe in...
1. God
2. myself
3. my family
4. love
5. Heaven (kind of goes hand in hand with God but...)
6. friendship(long distance or not)
7. the bond between women
8. marriage
9. eating ice cream when your heart's broken
10. the Huskers!

Awww, that was sweet. I hope you get to reunite with each of them again real soon!
I wanted to choose all of the prompts but I'm too lazy right now so I just chose the letter.

love the letters!!! And thanks for turning me on to Mama Kat!!!

As for the diet...I really don't know what to say. it is sort of like this. I kept saying i "wanted" to lose weight. But then someone would bring cake to work or something, and I would eat it. i finally told myself, i didn't really "Want" to lose weight. Because the very moment I decided to eat the cake, I became committed to the cake, and not to the diet. So, i decided to wean myself... 1st, off of sugary sweets. then off diet soda. And I used the crystal light packets to get "on" water. I also have a free day on saturdays. Therefore, if i am craving something, I do not feel deprived. I weigh myself every day - which people say not to do. but for me, even seeing that i have lost .5 lbs, it motivates me to keep going to the next day. oh - and more veggies!!! i have tried to limit my fruits to 2 per day and veggies 3 or more... that's about it. it's not a perfect diet, and i do "cheat" from time to time. however, again, you gotta find what works for you or you won't stick to it... good luck - and sorry for the LONG reply!
