What a weekend!

Well the weekend is over and the 50th anniversary party is in the books. All in all I think it went pretty well and no major issues. I will give a shout out to the photographer whom I think made the task of family photos very enjoyable for everyone and I have had several comments about how nice and good she handled everything (here should be the link to her website to advertise for Theresa but I do not have the url).

On a new subject sorta, I did get to meet my sisters husband from Norway and I must admit he is quite the character. I think everyone in the family has enjoyed meeting Jon Olav and sis I have to tell you I am SO excited for your life and how happy you all seem to be and how well he treats you. The world is not fair and you have felt more than your share of the unfairness in your life and you deserve all the happiness you can get (even if you are in Norway and I only get to see you every 3-4 years).

So, being new to this blog thing and having the scattered mind that I do you all may have to put up with my ramblings and jumping around on subjects, if anyone really even reads these things.
Which brings up a thought that goes through my head. Do you really truly write your feelings in a blog that might be read by people that actually know you? If you do will they think less of you when they read that you are not the perfect person you attempt to be in public? Or, will it confirm the thoughts they have the even though you think you are putting on a good display you are transparent and they already see the real you?
So many things happening and decisions that you want to make and need to just get your thoughts out there but is a blog a place to be transparent? Do I over analyze things? Do I care too much what others think of me? If Jason by chance read this blog when it influence the personal evaluation I need for the PLACE seminar? Am I truly an "I" or just fooling myself?
O.K. where was I with this rambling going nowhere thoughts?

Do you exercise the way you should, or that the doctor's say you should? With the increased age, I have found it even harder to loose weight and with the sky high cholesterol and blood pressure that does not want to drop I know that I should, yet I hate exercise and tend to use the "I am too busy" ever heard that one? I joined weight watchers and did pretty well for about 6-9 months and lost 36lbs but life and excuses got in the way and alas, 20 of those are back on my body. I did have Karen sign us ap at the YMCA and now I have to find a new excuse to not go to the Y for exercise. I guess if I actually worked as hard at getting to the Y and actually doing what I need to do as I do to get out of the work I would probably see some amazing results. But, are we (Or is it just me again) like that with our spiritual life, Family life, marriage, job? It seems easier to complain and whine than to do the work required to make things work as they should?

Well, enough of the ramblings for now, I will go ahead and put some of those energies into my job and get a little work done.
