Song of the day


By Alanis Morissette

One day I'll find relief
I'll be arrived
And I'll be friend to my friends who know how to be friends
One day I'll be at peace
I'll be enlightened and I'll be married with children and maybe adopt
One day I will be healed
I will gather my wounds forge the end of tragic comedy

I have been running so sweaty my whole life
Urgent for a finish line
And I have been missing the rapture this whole time of being forever incomplete

One day my mind will retreat
And I'll know God
And I'll be constantly one with her night dusk and day
One day I'll be secure
Like the women I see on their thirtieth anniversaries

I have been running so sweaty my whole life
Urgent for a finish line
And I have been missing the rapture this whole time of being forever incomplete

Ever unfolding
Ever expanding
Ever adventurous
And torturous
And never done

One day I will speak freely
I'll be less afraid
And measured outside of my poems and lyrics and art
One day I will be faith-filled
I'll be trusting and spacious authentic and grounded and home

I have been running so sweaty my whole life
Urgent for a finish line
And I have been missing the rapture this whole time of being forever incomplete

Making progress

Well, if it official. I have lost 17 pounds since January. The only problem I have now is that most of my clothes are too loose so I am having to buy new ones. The Salvation Army is getting lots of clothes this year, woohoo!

Food pushers

I hate food pushers. If I don't want what you are offering - it is probably because I either don't want to eat it or am not hungry. I work with a few food pushers who CONSTANTLY try to push me to eat what they have brought in and look offended when i say politely 'no thank you'. This morning I was having spinach keish pushed at me. 1 - I don't like spinach, 2- I don't like keish. I don't care if someone made it for Easter for our office - I don't want any! The other food pusher tried to get me to have some manju she brought in on Monday morning, I politly said no thank you I have already had breakfast. She gave me the stink eye and then put it out in our 'food stash' area of the office. The food pushers got worse when I mentioned around Christmas that I was trying to eat healthier & loose weight. This seems to have put them in a crazed mode of we need to feed Sam crappy fatty food all the time. I have made progress, 9.2 pounds so far. I admit it - I fall off the wagon and maybe have a malasada or 2 (yesterday was a bad day) every now & then but I try hard to limit the junk food intake - which is hard in an office constantly getting restocked with cookies & chocolates.

I have a theory on these types of people -those who push food on others are tring to get rid of it before they eat it all. If you want it - EAT IT! Don't try to make me eat it - I usually DONT WANT IT!!

Strange things have been coming into our house lately. I am used to seeing the geckos that come in and run around the ceiling & walls; but nothing could prepare me for the 'new' visitors we have had recently.

Saturday we found a ladybug crawling on our couch.
On Sunday we found 2, yes 2, caterpillars crawling across the floor in our front room.
Then this morning we found a worm crawling on the floor in front of the door.

Where did all these lovely creatures gain access to our house - we have no idea. We don't leave our front door open & all the windows have screens on them. I am planning on searching for their entry point & plugging it soon. I did notice yesterday that we have more birds hanging out near the back of the house lately and they were pretty active with grabbing things off the ground (other buggies I presume). Maybe these 4 buggies thought they could take refuge in my house. Instead they were either moved back outside or smashed by a shoe. I don't like buggies in my house & won't give them the impression they can stay with me.

Pain in my head

I want the pain in my head to stop. It feels like it is going to explode. I only got around 3 hours of sleep last night, kept up most of the night by the pain. My normal remedies for when my head does this are not working and it is starting make me irritable. I just want the pain to stop...

Just one of those days

Have you ever had one of those days when you just feel like hiding from the world? I am having one of those days today. Every noise, voice, laugh makes me want to run away while screaming EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Bark if your hungry

For lunch today I decided to sit outside so I could enjoying the sunshine, lovely breeze and a listen to a little Jethro Tull on the headphones. Everything was wonderful until I became overwhelmed by a horrible smell & feeling of nausea. What could it be? Some yahoo sat upwind from me with his lunch that smelled like dry dog food that had been soaking in water. I know this smell from growing up with dogs & having to endure that horrible smell when it was up to me to feed them. The gag reflex was working overtime & I had to leave in a hurry to prevent my lunch from making an unwanted return. I am at a loss for why people would eat food that smells & looks like dog food. Thanks yahoo for ruining my zen moment.

Theoretically it is driving me insane

I hate it when people use a word over & over again just because it makes them feel smarter or more important. I have a co-worker who CONSTANTLY uses the word theoretically. Why hasn't this account billed in the last 6 months - theoretically we should be billing monthly, but the department has problems. WHAT???? When did billing become theoretical? She theoretically uses the word about 200 times a day AND in almost ever conversation. She is an older woman (pushing 65) who is theoretically a few years past the time she should have retired but has said she probably wont for another 5 years in our last theoretical conversation on the subject. She is also a loud talker & sits right next to me, so I theoretically here the word everytime she uses it at work. Calgon take me away........

damn, I am still here. why doesn't that work in real life like it does on tv???

Time shifts in the Lost world

A few weekends ago we went to Kapiolani Park to go exploring & take photos. To my surprise we caught the island going through a time shift

After our walk we went exploring and came upon this lovely site

That's right, the wheel to move the island & the post Anthony Cooper was tied up to. If you have no idea what I am talking about, guess your are not a Lost fan. I was stoked to come upon such a delightful sight. I will keep my eyes out & will try to post any other cool Lost sightings as we see them.

Friday blues

As I try to enjoy my Friday, I am being terrorized by the fountain of snot & parade of sneezes coming from my sinuses. I hate colds, with a passion. Especially when they hit on a Friday. Happy happy, joy joy.

PC Madness

I hate PC's. I hate it when it freezes up when you are doing something important & then crashes & you loose all your hard work. I find this happens more with Dell's - which I have come to despise. I am a Mac girl & HATE that I am forced to work with PC's in the work realm. The only time I have EVER had this kind of problem with a Mac was when I was running a windows program. But since I am not in charge of the IT unit in my department I guess I will have to just deal with it. Lucky me gets to get a new computer soon, I am praying it is not a Dell.

Will I Wii?

I got a Wii Fit for Christmas, which I really wanted. My problem, I can't seem to motivate myself to get off my lazy behind to use it. Since bringing it home I have used it about 7 or 8 times. I stare at it from the couch & think "there's the Wii Fit, I should use it today" and then at about the time I am going to bed I realize that I didn't. When I do it, I really enjoy myself. I know that I am in need of some weight loss, but can't seem to get myself motivated at all to exercise. Always a reason, excuse or distraction to keep my from it. I have altered my diet* and lost 3 pounds since January, but I know deep down I need to loose more than that (alot more). I long to be healthy. I need to be healthy.

* Big love & respect going out to Dan for the diet change. He is an amazing cook & has been on a mission to change our diet to be a more healthier one. I don't know what I would do without him.


Hello and welcome! Hope you enjoy the things I spy with my minds eye.
