changes and friends and stuff ...



ch-ch-ch-ch-changes .... I have been watching as some of my friends are going through rather big changes right now ... especially Sandra, who is semi-retired from the retail world and Izzy, who is taking on the retail world ... check out her new POTP scrapbooking store blog here. I have decided to make a few life changes as well ... I figure, if i make about 2 changes a month, for the next many many years ... i will not only continue to evolve but i will be the person i know i am ... So here goes ...

Change 1: No more snacking on cheese .. no more snacking of beautifully aged cheddars, creamy bries and just about any other cheese i can munch on. I can still have my low fat feta and cottage for salads and low fat mozza's in pasta dishes but absolutely no more using cheese as a snack food or meal.

Change 2: Imposing a maximum 30 minutes a day time limit on Facebook ... I am spending way too much time there and most of it is spent playing mahjong ... I'm talking wayyyyyy too much time ... It occured to me that when i get to the point where my life is flashing before my eyes, i want to see a lot more that a giant mahjong board ... I seriously need a mahjong and facebook detox. I neglect my own little blog and my friends wonderful blogs because of my little addiction ... and this makes me feel bad ... So, i'm getting out the timer, sitting it by my computer, and turning it to 30 minutes as soon as i hit the sign in screen. And looked what i missed this week by spending my time on fb ...



Diane, thank you thank you thank you!!! I am so glad that I met you. You are one of those people who truly just bring the fun!! You make me laugh ... you have words of wisdom ... you inspire me ... and mostly YOU MAKE ME LAUGH!!!! (yes that was worth repeating!)

and for those still reading .... the wall ... it is located across the street from the Sandman Hotel on Georgia ... the pictures of Hayley at the wall were taken by her friend T-bone or as I call him ... Travis ... I have never seen the Charlie Brown section of the wall, it is quite a long wall ... and ironically I have been trying to get Hayley to go there for a photo shoot for about 10 months now ... its just something we never seem to get time to do ...

My addiction is Bejeweled and I feel the same way you do...I need to spend less time there. I`m just takin it one day at a time (last night only 45 minutes)as I can`t go cold turkey.

Love your LO! This is such a fun shot of Hayley! I've got to take my girl there one day. Changes are good. You inspired me to make my change. Beginning in September, it's all about changes for me. Don't know if I can give up cheese though lol but I'm going to follow your lead and make some changes for the better. You go girl!
