Be a Pirate!

Thursday, April 24, 2014


Yesterday I had my piano lesson----
It went well----In fact...I enjoyed it very much!
This is the music teacher that promotes ""powders and pills"" for weight loss-
It's a pyramid scheme---She makes money on others sales---
I finally told her, a week ago, that I believe in fresh vegetables and eating healthy----
Her sales talk stopped----no more is she pushing her idea of ""losing weight"" on me!!--
Why is it that others can push their lifestyle on me...and I'm afraid to speak up?

I need to adopt this attitude--LOL
I need to promote my lifestyle
Oh man!!!---

    Powder and pills do not teach you haw to eat properly!!!! They do not teach you how to live a healthy lifestyle, quite the opposite!!!!!

    Good for you for speaking up!!! I always say I am not interested and if they keep pushing I raise my voice ever so slightly and say thanks but I am NOT interested. Works for me. What I really feel like saying is WHAT PART OF I AM NOT INTERESTED DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND??? But I was raised to be a lady which did not work out so well for me!! emoticon

emoticon this works for me too! We will be good pirates and only loot and pillage bad people!! They deserve it!!

    The problem with powders and pills is that they may work for a while, but then you haven't changed your lifestyle to keep the weight off - Plus they are usually very expensive because they are marketed to people looking for a "quick fix"

    Watch your tracker....and try to track BEFORE you eat...it helps to see just where they all come from. You are very aware and that is GOOD!

Have a GREAT day and stay busy and you may even "forget" to eat!

Himself bamfoozled!

Tuesday, April 22, 2014


Here is a coffee- Sparkly friends------I'm trying to WAKE UP here!!!--LOL
...that's what happened yesterday, as I saw himself try to find room in our garage for the snow tires----
Now ......we do have a double garage--one vehicle-----
You would think there would be lotza room in "'the garage""-----for these tires---
But-(isn't there always that big "butt"?)-----HIMSELF IS A PACK RAT!!!
I knew when I saw him trying to fit 4 large tires--on rims--into a space , where I knew I would trip on them----behind 25 garbage pails-behind a lawn tractor---with shovels etc etc etc etc--all around them----well, I knew ---nothing was going to " go right"----until I made himself ---go a little left----which meant he would have to part with some of his junk-----
Lord love a Duck!!
He told me that perhaps the kids needed all his wood(we have no wood stove)----that the kids might use the broken shovels----Oh woe is me-----I knew I was going to have a problem---!
So......we got it done----
In fact.....we even cleaned the car, post de-junking (well, sorta!)- this garage-----
And we went to bed--pooped!!!

So-----Is there a moral to this story???---

I suppose-----
Maybe true love on himself's part, is-------parting with "SOME" of his junk!!

    Himself is not a packrat, Herself is....although I have gotten better over the years Our tires are in the furnace room downstairs (we don;'t have a garage) My daughter's are in the exit we have from downstairs (an enclosed area to go outside from the basement) My son drives a jeep and doesn't need to change summer to winter. (Thank God!!!)
And I so agree with the True Love one. It really doesn't happen by accident (although I ran Himself down with my horse the first time I saw him (it was done on purpose!!!!!) Asked him to marry me 2 weeks later....he thought I was nuts........

  OK, joining the choir here. My himself is a packrat too. When we were first married DH had taken a job in Colorado Springs which meant moving from NY. He parted with NOTHING. Well, I found a system. He would have to take business trips out of town and I had a field day tossing out JUNK! I have to laugh, because that included an old ratty couch he actually moved from NY to CO for no good reason that I can figure. Want to know the best part? HE DIDN'T EVEN NOTICE I THREW IT OUT! BWAHAHAHA So, ladies, send your Himself somewhere on a "mission". . . even if it's only for a couple hours. You'd be surprised what you can get rid of in that amt. of time! Have to be sneaky sometimes!

HUGS and have a terrific Tuesday.

    My mother in law was a packrat. My himself is a packrat. My kids are packrats. On the other hand my mother, if you put something down and it was not moved within half an hour threw everything out. It was amazing what we found when cleaning out the garage and it is still not totally cleaned out because there was stuff (junk) that the kids could not part with. The attic too and the basement, full of junk. My himself and I got into a tussle one day over an old rocking chair, the one thing he wanted to throw away. It has a loose arm but it is the one my mother gave me when I had my oldest daughter. My plan is to have it repaired and give it to her if she ever gets around to having one. Can't throw out old boxes full of old papers full of engineering calculations because he may need them for work but wants to throw out a perfectly good rocking chair destined for oldest daughter. We have more than plenty of his junk(and the kids junk) to get rid of!!!

Our himselves give us headaches but we still love them!! And if we figured out WHY we would be millionaires!!!

Good Morning ----
..enough already!!!!--
No more foolin' around----
It's time to "Spark seriously"---no more sneaking in the extra stuff----

And to-day I shall SPARK ------perfectly------
That means--journaling---moving----

Picture myself at my goal weight---
thin thoughts------the summer sun dresses....
..the feelings when you KNOW you look good!

If I want to fly with the Turtles-----sit outside naked--
We must do some serious Sparking!
