so often we go out to eat and we often wait until we are really hungry.
when going into a restaurant, look at the menu, make your selection, lay it down and wait a few minutes, then look again. giving yourself a few minutes to reconsider your first choice. this also goes for fast food.
allow the next person in line to go ahead of you, giving yourself time to look at the board once more.
at home, look in the fridge, close the door, wait 5 mins, then look again.
asics gel venture 3 walking shoes for women???
i just bought a pair and wore them thru only half of my walk today, and had to switch back to my old NB
mabye cause they are so new and not broken in yet, anyone have a pair, or can recommend another great walking shoe??
buying big items
just a word of advice, when buying any big item, tv, phone etc, make sure to check it first, not so much to see if it works, but to make sure its in one piece, or the right pieces, i bought a tv at wm last night and got home, started to cut open the box and realized something was wrong, opened it, and it was busted all to pieces, and whoever had done this, had left their screwdriver behind
so i spent the day running back to the wm and replacing it.
i kept the screwdriver!!
pay it off
i have been paying on a student loan, and had been deferred for medical reasons for quite awhile, recently i decided just to jump in and start paying it, and i have been keeping a money log of all the unnecessary spending, so far from 2/24, i have spent nearly 300 on eating out, renting movies, coffee, newspapers and other needless items
so next month, i am paying the equivilent of what i spent needlessly on my loan!!!
do not scrimp on eyeglasses, i got my last pair at walmart eye center, and i regret it, the frames are ok, but after only 7 months i am having to have my lense replaced on one side, because it is scratched, i paid 290 for the glasses.
thinking i was saving money, but now i am having to shell out another 80 dollars to replace them, so, go to a place that offers better quality, and better warranty, or else, you end up spending more money in the end.

enjoy the sun
today i awoke to the sun
i took my chair and went out to sit in it, to soak up the rays and the vitamins and the good vibes i get from it.
it feels so good on my face and gives me time to think about the blessings in my life.
the saying, stop and smell the roses, really does ring true, just sit and reflect for 10 minutes.
