In 2 Hours

In 2 hours, it will be 2010. A new decade, a new year, a new day, a fresh page. I am sitting in my apartment, a movie on in the background (Where the Heart Is), in sweat pants and a fleece shirt, wrapped up in a fleece blanket. I am laughing at a line in the movie....the little girl asks if you feed a cow chocolate will you get chocolate milk to which the guy responds yes and he continues saying that if you spin a cow around really fast you will get whipped cream. LOL

I had offers to go out tonight and had planned on doing just that. Tim's sister Carol is hosting the New Year's Eve celebration tonight and Cheryl from church invited me over for board games and food. However, tonight home just sounded SO good. I haven't really felt that great.....probably due to lack of sleep, stress, some bug going around or a combination of all three.

Tuesday at work I just didn't feel well all day. Nothing that I could say "this hurts or this aches" just overall not feeling well. At 8:30 that night, I finally just went to bed thinking that I would probably wake up around midnight or something. I didn't wake up until 730 the next morning and only then because Shadow was biting my toes to let me know that her food bowl was empty. I thought that maybe I just needed the rest.

Yesterday, we had snow again. Flurries off and on throughout the day but the temperature wasn't too bad. This was the view from my window at work:

The day at the insurane agency was chaotic. It seemed like for every new policy we wrote we cancelled one in its place. Tim and I didn't even really speak to each other because we both were just so .....I cant' even find the right word. I left the insurance agency and went to work at the YMCA. I was there until 10 and then booked it to the movie theater.
Blind Side FINALLY made it to the $5 club and I was not going to miss it. It was the bestest, happiest, saddest movie I have seen in a long time and I can't wait to see it again. In fact, I can't wait to own my own copy. I laughed,I cried,it made me think, it made me hope.....Hope that there is still kindness for each other, hope that there is still goodness, hope that no matter what the situation change is ALWAYS possible.
I didn't make it home until after 1AM and I had to be at work at the YMCA at 6AM. I left the house around 5:00 thinking that maybe the Bread Co would be open and I could grab a danish and hot chocolate. No such luck as they do not open until 6, so I ended up at work at 5:30AM. I worked until 9:30, had to be at Tim/Becky's by 10:30 and was hungry for Hardee's cinnamon holes. I went through the drive-thru to find that Hardee's no longer carries the cinnamon holes---twice in one morning I was denied the sweetness I was craving!!! So I settled for a sausage/cheese biscuit and milk--and headed to the Philipps house. I ate my "not what I wanted" breakfast while staring at the remains of the kids French Toast. I wanted that French Toast, I wanted to eat the cold remenants that were left in the sticky syrup pool on their plates, I wanted to lick the bottom of the syrup pool. I didn't though because I'm a grown-up and giving in would just be disgusting. I ate my "not what I wanted" biscuit and drank my milk. I have NO idea why I was craving sweets SO bad.
Becky and I took Delaney to see "The Princess and the Frog". It was so cute seeing Delaney carrying her Princess Tiana doll to the movie.


I made it back home around 2pm. Shadow and I curled up on the couch for a much needed nap. And here I sit, now only an hour and half to a new year. Indy has her 10PM snack and is curled up in her cat perch. I am looking around at the mess of my apartment and think "tomorrow is another day"
Happy New Year!!!!!

Saw Blind Side for the first time on Sunday evening. It made it to our $3 theater here. ;) Loved it!! Like you, I can't wait to buy it...and watch it again. Refreshing and inspiring! Wondering what we can do here in Beranville to impact lives like they did.

Pray that you have a blessed 2010...continuing to find joy in everyday life. Keep trusting, obeying and being thankful! You're on the right path!! :)
