cara and josh lookalikes

while at seaworld we saw a couple who strongly resembled Cara and Josh so here's the snap to prove it.

this was just a super fun vacation, every day we did something completely wonderful... and i'm pretty sure the times were appreciated even more because of recent loss of two family members.

count your blessings, every day, and life gets better b/c of it.

Rush Hour at Salisbury Road, HK

The energy in this photo is the way I feel about going on vacation. I'm vibrating a little... having trouble sleeping... constantly occupied or preoccupied with the idea of lifting off and getting away.

The inside of the plane becomes this safe, quiet pod where no one can ring for me or yell for me every time I walk past their door on the way to do something else. I can put in the earphones, have a drink and float away from the stress to somewhere hot and fun.

Budget vacation here we come! With recipes!

So over on spitefulchef's blog she's got a killer recipe for honeydew mojitos. When we visit Wonderful Walmart in the WDW area, we are getting the ingredients for this stuff and mixing up a bunch.

See.. I have a small 'smoothie' blender that's coming with us. I am supertempted to take my crock pot as well, but housekeeping will either a. smell the wonderful aromas of coconut chicken and turkey chili and EAT IT ALL... or b. tell on me.

I can't wait for vacation. Some ittle part of me still feels like a creepo for this b/c my cousin and his wife have lost their 22 yo son unexpectedly. But I think that if I could talk to Josh again he would say that I need to go and have fun with my girls (19 and 22) while we still have life and breath in us.

Sparkpeople, Ravelry, WDW, tripadvisor and twitter are calling me. Bye!

sad, very sad

Originally uploaded by innitpam
this is me. and i'm smiling but actually in this picture, there is a sad situation going on.

this person, me, was not taking care of herself. she was focusing more on the things she did wrong or nevr got around to.

now, using sparkpeople, that mindset is changing. positives are going to count for double what anything negative is worth. no, my blog is not going to be me crying about my relationship with food, or how being single and almost 50 and no grandbabies is making me depressed. cuz it's actually not.

whatever was making me so neglectful toward my own wellbeing has sort of vanished in a poof and now things are diffrent every day because i am not 'weight loss' oriented or 'work out oriented.'

i am just going to give myself permission to respect myself and my body every day.

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.
