this is why I am worthless...

FOLKS this and this is why I am totally worthless. I spend entirely too much time either at watching tv or at my computer. If you will notice, yes I have Court TV on my television, because yes I am addicted to trials, but only live trials. I stay on this compuer what time I am not at the shown tv. I do have a tv in the computer room so I can never miss anything.

The point I am trying to make is that I need to be doing more things around the house and also getting outside and walking more than I do. But what must one do when they so much enjoy exactly what they are doing?? This is not to say that I do not do the bare necessities around here. We do still enjoy eating and I always try to have Jerrell a hot meal when he gets home from work. He had three days off for Memorial Day and I spent most of those three days right here. Now something must give. I realize I have been doing alot of research on my dad and the 10th Mountain Division that he was with at the time of his death, but the rest of the time, I am running my mouth in the Court TV chat channel and I have concluded that spending that much time in chat is worthless even with as much laughing as I do and fun that I do have. I must set my priorities, so starting today I am curbing my chat time and my research time and spend more time doing something constructive with my life.

Right now my phone is not working. The landline is, but I think the surge protector has bit the dust for the cordless and I am just not up to rounding another one up. Hoping with all hope that Jerrell will take care of that when he gets home, but that could turn out to be another round like getting the toliet fixed was, so I might as well get it done myself. I just know too that I will have to reset the answering machine and it took me two days to figure it out when I first set it and of course I have no memory recall at all.

I do have some good news though. We put Roxy on a serious diet a week ago this past Monday. I mean a "feel so sorry for her" kinda diet and she is really losing some weight. It takes a lot of will power to not feed her table food, but the longer we go, the more she will adjust to it. She gets her haircut next week, so then we can tell better just how much she has lost, cause she has such thick hair.
A tid bit...I think the Blog of the Day folks have folded, so I will remove the code when I get around to it. Don't think folks pay too much to what is on a sidebar noways or at least I don't. I got some dusting done and now I need to move on to something else in the house. Wanted to toss a post on here. Have a good day folks! Wish me luck. :P

God Bless!



Moobear, worthless, I don't think so. You have made my heart lighter on many a day and encouraged me when I needed to be encouraged. You are a friend sent by God and by me you are deeply appreciated. connie from Texas

First of all, what I'm going to say is really rather self serving because I feel much like you do. I sit at the computer, or watch tv (or both because I too have a tv by my computer) .... or I sleep. I don't do housework .... I've come to a point in life where I can barely walk to different rooms, let alone CLEAN those rooms. I no longer cook .... we go out to eat (a point which hubbs is very good about, but does get upset on occasion, usually just before payday).

All this is to say that I feel worthless too. BUT ... what I'm going to say to you has been said to me. So here goes.

Do you make anyone smile while blogging or chatting? Do you make yourself happy? Are you learning anything that you can then pass on to Jerrell or anyone else for that matter? Do YOU smile? If you can answer YES to any or all of these questions .... then you ARE not worthless.

And don't forget .... God NEVER thinks ANYONE is worthless!

Yup..what Mikey said.
Plus- you have people in your life that love you and that you love, that feel better just because they know Moo loves them.
And it's GREAT that you got Roxy off people food - it's NOT NOT NOT good for dogs at all. The processed stuff and chemicals in people food is most likely what is causing her lumps. I read a book that states that tests done on cancerous tumors find pestacides and chemicals in them!! EWWWW!!
As for shutting off the TV and taking a walk, well - set an alarm, and GO OUTSIDE!!! The book says walk outside an hour every day, so go do it! It certainly can't hurt you.
And of course drink water, getting up to pee will at least get you fanny out of the chair. it's 1/2 you body weight in ounces every day plus 1/2 tsp of sea salt (yes SEA SALT) per quart. No - I don't put the sea salt in the water, that's yucky. I use it on food, and during the day when I'm working and sweaty, I'll just poor a bit on my hand and eat it.
I'm going over to see Mikey and see if I can talk to her about getting some home-cooking done for her, and get off some of those chemicals and processed stuff that's more than likely aiding her in feeling crummy.
Take care, Jesus loves us(thankfully).
