  • Sweat through my clothes and get to the point where the 3 pm slump happens…I’m tired.
  • I wrap up my last clients up around 5 or 6 pm
  • Call my husband when I am on my way home
  • Get home, take a shower and eat dinner
  • Say goodnight to my kids and go to bed at 10 or 11 pm, if I didn’t have homework
  • Start all over again the next day…

    I never did get to where I wanted to be, but I learned that you have to love what you do in order to be happy. God had other plans for me.

And now…Retired Life….

  • Wash up and proceed to open the curtains for sunshine

  • Eat breakfast
  • If scheduled work on my blog for at least 5 hours
  • Eat my lunch through blogging hours
  • On Tuesdays, 5$ movie days we will see a movie if interested
  • If I am not feeling pain from arthritis, pain in my back or it isn’t humid outside, I will walk 3 miles with my husband around the lake for my Physical Therapy
  • Prepare my dinner (Our teens are now self-sufficient so they prepare their own meals now)
  • Watch some sporting event or movie with the hubby or have date night
  • Me and hubby take our dog Sage for his walk around 11 pm or 12 am

My favorite quote by Maya Angelou

   So, as you can see, a big difference in my life this past 8 months since I retired.  I love the freedom of coming and going as I please and having a great support system in my family.  I knew I had to make a change because I wasn’t happy making others dreams come true.

That’s all I got for you until tomorrow …stay tuned for Day 16 and don’t forget to:

31 Day Challenge-Day 12

    People are always saying, ” If I won the lottery, I would quit my job, buy myself a mansion, boat and anything I have ever wanted.”  I hear this and I keep looking at the people that are millionaires according to the television and I wonder why is it they are so unhappy with having so much money and time on their hands.  Why are they killing themselves or going bankrupt after working so hard…I figured it out…it’s not money that will set you free, it is the love you have for yourself and others not the coins you have in the bank and life you live.  I took Psychology in school and it is a known fact that most people want to be able to never have to worry about anything in their life, but it will never happen.  Having money in the bank helps one problem but what about health and everyday feeling and emotions…you can’t buy that.  The more you have, the more you want, it never is satisfied.

For me, the lottery is another way for the world to create one more problem for people who have addictions, those that dream of winning and never do, or taking hard working people’s money away that they probably needed to pay their rent with.  I am okay with people every once in awhile having a little fun together buying a ticket or betting on games but when it disturbs the economic structure of us putting food on the table, it is a problem.  

    Don’t get me wrong, I have played before but I don’t take food out of my kids mouths or declare myself homeless just to get to misery.  If you think about it, everyone you know is going to know you won it and that is when the problems beginning.  I would rather have a smile on my face everyday and live my life then have to worry about people coming after me.  I think if we are going to continue to play, let’s play for a better cause like free health care for everyone or allowing everyone a free college education.

    So, with saying all that, if I won the lottery, I am retired so I don’t have to quit my job.  Probably make sure my kids education was fully paid, & the house is paid in full.  All the debt we have is taken care of.  I always wanted an RV so I would get one to enjoy family road trips.  The rest of the money would be used as needed.  I don’t believe in asking for more than I have because I am happy just the same.  We as people have to realize that what we have is a blessing and it was meant for us to have, what we do with it is up to us….it sets the tone for whether we are happy or miserable for our one life to live.

31 Day Challenge Day 10

   First Celebrity crush….really has changed over the years with all the new actors making their way to television and radio. I didn’t have any celebrity crushes as a child…I know that sounds weird but for some reason no one person gave me that spark. I got older and then that is when I started watching movies and I got my list.

And here it is…..

IMG_20190804_020222[1]

Oohh…lala…My list starts from left to right with Johnny Depp, I fell in love with him in Pirates in the Caribbean.  Next up, Terrence Howard, I fell for his spunk in Best Man.  Mr. Ray Liotta an Irishmen, Italian and gangster in of my favorite movies GoodFellas, he was gorgeous.  Last but not least, Superman himself, Dean Cain, I loved him as Clark/Superman and also in the movie Out of Time with Denzel Washington.

As much as I loved all these guys then, right now I’ve got my eye on only one crush

Robert Downey Jr.

IMG_20190804_020234[1]

Fell for him while he was doing Iron-man and then he kept going with the Avengers.  

  Next up is Celebrity girl crushes…

IMG_20190804_020249[1]

Jillian Michaels – I idolize her for her strength and courage.  She represents a women who has proven through it all that women can overcome how they feel about themselves and how the world judges them based on their looks and sexuality.  

Michelle Rodriguez I have admired her since the Fast and Furious.  She is a bad ass on screen and a soft feminine energy off-screen with a caring spirit.

Both ladies are beautiful and sexy in their own unique way.

Sorry, I didn’t have any singer celebrity crushes……the 90’s were a very confusing time..lol.

Well that’s all I got for now….

to having sex without dating what happened to courting someone and getting to know them…really?

    I am talking about communication because I am an old-school soul.  I loved living the simple life where kids played outside with their imagination until the street light came on.  Now it seems, since technology has taken over every kid growing up now has to have a phone, big television or the latest gaming system to preoccupy their mind from being creative with their time.  There are way too many conveniences and it causes alot of anxiety and depression not only for those who are baby-boomers but the teens who are pressured by what they see on you-tube and television programs these days that provide a false sense of reality for them.  Being rich doesn’t come from living in Beverly Hills, you have to work for it, having designer clothes are not supposed to make you feel more important than everyone else..you are paying for the name on a plain shirt. Teens and most adults don’t realize these things because of the songs that get sang and the shows that create a false message about how the world really works.  People since technology, have decided to communicate through towers instead of face to face.  Families are not the same anymore with dinners and conversation, teens are eating in their rooms or worse skipping meals.  Communication is a must-have in any relationship from parent to child, husband to wife, sister to brother and friend to friend…we have to get back to the old days when we all knew each other better by sitting our techs down and speaking from the heart.  

This clip is from my favorite Christmas movie…when times were simpler.
