Random Thoughts Monday v3.0

Happy end of Monday ye all, the day has gotten away from me, but I’m full of thoughts to throw out

  • Goals: I have so many goals at the moment that if I don’t get them all written down I think my head might explode.  I have several long-range goals that have been in the works for some time, one you know and another I’ve known for some time but have not told you.  Tune in on Wednesday for my breaking news :).  In order to make my long-range goals I have had many smaller goals creep their way into my life.  Most of my goals revolve around my health and fitness level.  But, life such as it is, things are never simple, I have many goals that have nothing to do with my health and fitness.  All my goals seem to be competing for my time and the feeling of frustration is sinking in deep.  Stress is not a good thing, I don’t enjoy it at all!!  All of my goals were added to my life to enhance my life, not to freak me out…perspective…big breath
    • It’s not only important to determine your goals, but to ensure you know WHY it is important to YOU.  What will happen if you don’t reach your goal?  Will the world end, probably not.  Will you stop moving forward?  Hopefully not.  Will you still want that goal and be sad and disappointed if you don’t give it your all and keep pushing forward?  If your answer is a resounding yes, then you have some work to do.
    • My homework this week is to write down why I’m working for each of my goals, the whys for my short-term goals and a plan to keep me on track…
  • By the time I write my next Random thoughts post it will be October!!!
  • Go to my 20 year high school reunion or not???
  • I bid so infrequently on eBay I forget the strategy every single time.  I still remember the auction I lost by just mere seconds.  My fingers working hard to get my next bid in and then seeing the clock run out, urrggg.  It turned out to be a good thing actually.  Two days later I found a cheaper option and I won.  This week I’m in the hunt for a Halloween costume that apparently is no longer made, making it crazy hard to find and the prices kind of obnoxious on ebay…but here I am searching and hoping to find AND win the it costume of choice for my oldest.  Wish me luck, thankfully he has a 2nd choice that can be found at most Halloween party shops for $19.99, hmmm, maybe I’m hoping I wont find his 1st choice, shhhhh, don’t tell him.
  • Do you have perennials that weren’t in the best place this year?  Start planning your garden for next year, because in the next couple of weeks it going to become prime season for moving/splitting your perennials into a new home.
  • The Detroit Lions are 3 & 0!!!  believe it.  I don’t want to think about how many more they will need for a winning season or to get into the playoffs.  I’m just enjoying the glow of seeing my Lions kick some butt!!  Did you see the catch that lead them to a game winning field goal in overtime?  Wow, very nice, them boys got some talent!!  We meet up with the Cowboys next and they’ve already lost one, to the Jets, oh boy, I’m not nervous, I’m a Lions fan

  1. 1. Thanks for the cliffhanger! I cannot wait until wednesday to find out!

    2. I am on the fence about the reunion. Have you gone to one yet? I haven’t and am not sure if I will or not. Maybe now that I have some self confidence I will be more likely to consider going.

    3. Knowing the why’s about your goals is important. I think I should evaluate them as well. Good idea.

    4. Go Lions! That catch made by Johnson was amazing! I was telling him ( through the tv) he should be celebrating! What a great ending. I will be cheering them on next week too- i hate the cowboys!

    • 1. Not so much of a cliffhanger for you, b/c you know almost all of my secrets 🙂 but some back on Wed anyways please 🙂

      2. I have not yet gone to a reunion and I really don’t want to go to this one. I’m still close with the friends I want to see but they and my mom really want me to go. I think my mom would go if she could. I don’t know, we’ll see soon though b/c it on Oct 8th.

      3. Ya, right, I mean I know the biggest reason, my health and energy to be active, but that is just to simple. I need something more to lean on, something that is going to keep me going all the way to the finish line and not stop 3/4 of the way there.

      4. I bet Johnson heard you through that tv, mostly b/c we were all yelling at him. How could he not feel all that good love coming his way!! Yeah, cowboys, ssspppptttooo 😀

  2. Ha ha! I will definitely come back on wednesday!

    My high school was pretty small and they combined our reunion with the graduating class from the year before. So our ten year was really only at 9 years and we had it with them for their ten year. I couldn’t get behind that idea. Not even sure if there was a 5 or 15. At 20 i will have to see. It might not be worth the cost. Lol! For you, I say if you don’t want to go, don’t. Why make yourself do something you don’t want to do? Of course if it makes your fruends happy then it’s hard to say no. It’s a double-edged sword.

    I will gladly cheer on the Lions as long as they aren’t playing the Eagles or the Bills! 🙂

    • It is double-edged sword!! I just got word that one of my favorite guys from HS (Bubba, he was always so nice) is coming, I’d love to see Bubba. The questionable thing is if the good parts will out weight the ugly ones, with my class (around 400) that is very questionable!!

      Me too, I’ll for sure cheer on your Eagles and Bills, we are not meeting in the regular season, so we are good for now!! 😉

  3. Love your random thoughts! I agree with Dacia. If you really don’t want to go to your reunion, don’t do it for anybody but yourself. But I am sure that everyone would love to see you. 🙂

    • As a project manager you’d think I would not have a problem seeing them all written down 🙂 it’s overwhelming to see all we do in a week.
      On a writers note, good news bad news: finished the last scene in my book last week, then I re-read my initial draft of my synopsis and remembered that I left out at least 3 scenes, guess the first draft is not done 🙂
      Ya, yuck, reunions, that’s what I need to do, say no
