First Gay Hug (A Homophobic Experiment) | First Kiss Video





I absolutely love this video.  The way the people react to each other is really something to watch.  I guess I forget that there are people out there that are this homophobic, it's a bit of an eye opener actually.

Squirrel hides nuts in a Bernese Mountain dog (as seen on Ridiculousness)





I have to say, this is one of the cutest videos I've seen in a while.  We have a squirrel joke going on with some friends of ours and this is just perfect.  Love it!!

Finding it in Everything and Goals

Drew Barrymore has a new book out called "Finding it in Everything".  It's a book about finding hearts in everyday places.  Right after seeing her on Ellen's show, I opened a bag of potato chips and found one in the shape of a heart.  I wasn't able to send it to her because I don't have instagram, so I thought I'd share it with you. 




Well, we've changed the calendar for the first time this year and  I have a few main goals to accomplish in the coming months.

  1. To be more flexible and not sweat the small stuff.
  2. To go to the gym at least 3 times a week with one of them being yoga on Friday.
  3. To eat better, drink more water and loose weight.
  4. To feel better both physically and mentally by doing numbers 2 and 3.
  5. To be a kinder person.
  6. To be thankfully for all of my blessings.

So far I'm doing pretty well with number 2 and numbers 5 and 6. I need to work harder at the others.

Number 1 is really tricky for me because it means fighting my anxiety disorder. This is more difficult than I can explain. My anxiety feels out of control lately. I feel like I'm staying one step ahead of it, but I could really use to be at least 5 or 6 steps ahead.

Number 3 and 4 should be easy, but aren't. I eat great all day but once night time arrives, watch out. It's like all I want to do is stuff myself with junk food. I really need to work on this one.

So, those are my goals. I don't make resolutions because it seems to set me up for failure. With goals I feel more in control of what I want to do, so I go with them.
 
Hope everyone is having a great New Year so far!  <3 p="">

A New Year

Well, a new year has begun.  So far, it has been much more hectic than I had planned. 

We had my Uncle Kenny staying with us for three days this past week while he began recovering from cataract surgery.  It actually turned out to be fun, we watched both "Despicable Me" and "Despicable Me 2".  I also introduced him to my favorite show, "Friends".  I never realized how racy that show was until I was watching it with him.  Since he tends to watch QVC and shows like "Andy Griffith", Friends was a big change for him.  Oh, we also watched a bunch of "Dark Shadows" episodes.  He remembers them from when they were first on air years ago, I had never seen them before. 

Lorrie has been busy helping his brother move furniture and other household items from an apartment to a storage facility.  He's been gone almost every day for 4 to 6 hours.  Since we're both used to being home, it has been a bit weird for me.  Luckily, I think Lorrie is actually enjoying being with his brother and helping him out.  The one day their other brother showed up to help too, that sounded like it was fun. 

I'm always saying I'm looking forward to when things slow down, but what I'm starting to understand is that they really don't and that's OK.
