November Rent

Happy RENT DAY!!

Maybe it's because of Daylight Savings Time … I had somewhat had slept in today and when I got up at noon, decided to watch one of the DVDs that I borrowed from the library.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

I actually ALSO got The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and will probably watch it later on tonight.

Kavla Khempur is the hotel that was used … while is seemed run down in the movie … I actually saw a lot of beauty in it.

So what would I like to do with $850 Rent instead ??

Fly out to India and stay at the Ravla Khempur.  I want to see the Step Well at Amer Fort.

Travel To India!  That's what November Rent could be used instead.

My rent goes up $25 next month.

I'm sure I could figure out another place to travel to for $875

And Another Sign

Something happened today at work that just got me .... I can't even really describe my feelings .. but it seems to be a sign that maybe ... its time ... to really ... really ... do what I have to do.

I want to do more.
I need to do more.
I want to do what I really want to do.

It has come to a point where I've had discussions with co-workers that we are just lucky to have a job, but not really happy ... happy ... but not ... really happy.

I want to count my blessings, but what I really want is ... my bliss.

I might have to wait for a third sign ... and it will all make more sense to me.

Jesus Christ !! It's already December 2014

I cannot believe it is already the last month of the year !!!

If I made any resolutions ... none of them were kept ... NONE !!

I wish I went on some kind of exciting adventure this year .. but NO ... no grand Europe adventure this time.

I don't know what has happened to me.  I feel like I've lost some motivation to do things and I'm just letting the day pass by .. thinking ... tomorrow will be another day to do this and that, I don't have to do anything now.

I've got to do something ... more ... more before the year is over.

The Number 40

In less than 3 months I will be turning 40 !!

I know I keep writing about the BIG 4 - 0 …. and complaining how I'm dreading in, but today, at church … the priest spoke about how significant the number 40 was.

It rained for 40 days and 40 nights when God wanted to cleanse the world and start over.

Jesus fasted for 40 days

Jesus was seen 40 days after his crucifixion.

The priest talked about renewal and cleansing.

So maybe I shouldn't be too sad about turning 40.

And The Findings Are .....

I finally got to see my doctor today regarding my blood work.

After having to reschedule since I had no record of an appointment yesterday ... I finally spoke to Doc M ... and she gave me good news ... they came out FINE !!

My cholesterol was just a LITTLE BIT higher than normal ... but nothing to be concerned about.

So ... back to my white rice ... eggs ... bacon ... fried chicken .. pizza ... and fries ... and burger ... diet.

15 Years Ago ...

15 years ago my dad had a heat attack and died.

Today I went to an earlier mass, to say a little prayer for him, to say a little prayer for my family.

I had gone to the library afterwards to get two books that I put on hold.  I've been waiting for both of them to finally be available for checkout.  One of them is titled Time Of My Life ... which has an interesting storyline about the main character having a meeting with LIFE .. and the changes she needs to make in hers to be a happier person.

Afterwards ... I had gone to Starbucks ... this gnat was constantly flying in front of my computer monitor ... while I was job searching.  I had a thought that maybe it was my dad ... giving me a sign.

Maybe I should be concentrating on all the important things I wanted to do.

So I just let that gnat fly around me ... until it just disappeared.  On to another customer??

Anyways ... I miss you Dad.  Very much still.
