Here is my uplifting thought for this day, this one is taped to the inside of every journal I own:
Let me have the courage to believe in myself
Not only on the days when I'm going great and nothing seems impossible
But on the days when the world looks lousy and I'm losing
And the road ahead seems too hard;
When I wonder if I'm brave enough, smart enough,
Strong enough and I must be crazy if I try,
Don't let me quit-let me have courage in myself.
No matter how many people discourage me, doubt me,
Laugh at me, warn me, think me a fool...
Don't let me listen, let me hear another voice saying,
"You can do it,"...and, "You will."
If no one else in the world cares of believes in me...
Let me have courage to believe in myself!

"I am here today because I have a problem (sympathetic look from group members). I am addicted to Grey's Anatomy (gasp). I began watching Grey's just for fun, just to see what it was about and everything went downhill from there. I must confess that I have purchased the first three seasons on DVD (looks of horror from the group). I have watched them all TWICE! I thought that watching the first episode was harmless but I seem to find myself in the never-ending cycle or addiction, spiraling out of control. I need help. I waste countless hours of my life thinking about Grey's and Patrick Dempsy and his hair, I record every episode in case I need to get a "fix" after it has ended. What do I do? Have I completely lost it? I would just like to tell all of you out there...don't even get started. This is no way to live and if you have found yourself in a situation similar to mine, please seek help as soon as possible, don't let it go on forever."
(Supportive remarks from the group)
I have just shared with all of you one of my deepest, darkest most personal secrets. I love Grey's Anatomy. Every episode seems to draw me in deeper and deeper. Not only are there a bunch of seriously cute doctors but it is also intriguing and suspensful and funny (what would we do without humor!) There are times when I just want to strangle the characters or shake them or slap them...but it all turns out in the end.
Please turn your attention to the top of the screen, you will noticed that I have recently changed the name of my blog, blogalicious has a nice ring to it don't you think?
Food of the day: Chocolate Chip Teddy Bear crackers...mmm mmm good!

Just for kicks and giggles I will describe to you a typical day in my life:
7:30 a.m. - hit the treadmill
8:20 a.m. - hit the shower
9:00 a.m. - hit the refrigerator
9:30 a.m. - sit at the computer doing pointless things (unless my dad has something for me to do)
11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. - wander aimlessly
After 4:00 my lovely sisters are home from school and I can bug them or we can go shopping or head to Starbucks...whatever. So, that's a day in my life, I'm not even joking.
So, everyone pray that the "job gods" have pity on me and hook me up!

After the workshop we went back to the car dealership to test drive the two civics I've been looking at and picked out the one I wanted. So, that was Friday. Saturday I finished my very first Heritage Makers book and because I love all of you so much I'm going to let you be the first to see it (the pictures in the book...yeah...I took them!)
Today I gave a talk in church and surprise! I volunteered to do and it was dang good, thank you very much. It seemed to go well. The second I said Amen my family was out the back door of the chapel on their way to a missionary farewell in Orem-ish area but I decided I didn't know the missionary (my mom's cousin's son) so I stayed for sacrament meeting like a good girl and now I seem to have found myself alone. I watched Carousel and for your information it was slow, boring and the actors couldn't sing and it was made in like the 40's or something, I don't recommend it.

My next rambling has nothing to do with this "no party" that happened rather it will focus on my ED group. I have been going to ED group for about a year and have made some friends. Well, during my little "sebaticle" in Cedar City recently the group changed. I showed up at group three weeks ago and there is not one single person that I know and it's scary. I skipped a week because I was nervous and wanted to watch Timini barrell race instead but I went last week. Today I showed up for group expecting to see the faces of these lovely ladies who I don't know but I was the only one who showed up. It was actually more like an individual therapy session because Robin is the group leader and my therapist as well. It was fun to hang out with her for that hour and a half. We talked about all sorts of things and laughed a little too much. This ends the my random speaking for the day.
OH! It's Fat Talk Free Week!!!! Don't forget to sign the promise! http://www.bodyimageprogram.org/action/fattalkfreeweek/

I went to therapy land today, I always love going to therapy land. I sat on the couch (it's a new couch btw, very comfy) across from Robin and got all prepared to talk about deep, dark, twisty stuff but instead we started talking about...activities! I love activities. One activity that came up was bike riding which I have develope a new love for. Robin decided this would be a good place to insert an analogy (therapist seem to be quite good at these) . She said that breaking bad habits is a little bit like riding a bicycle. For years and years you have a bad habit and then it comes time to change the habit which is like getting on a bike after not riding for a long time. At first you are hesitant and wobbly and even a little scared to get back on the bike but after a while it becomes easier and less scary. Overcoming a bad habit is scary and you feel a bit hesitant at first but the more you do the opposite of you bad habit, the more comfortable it becomes and BOOM! No more bad habit. Also, as you ride along on your bike (or new, good habit) there will be hills to climb and when you see the hills you think "oh crap, I'm gonna die before I make it up that thing!" but if you take it slow and steady you will get to the top and then you can coast down the other side! How awesome is this?
Tip of the day: don't get up at 6:00 a.m. to have your hair curled

Sad story: when it was time to go home I put the balloons in the car and accidentally let go of them and they are now orbiting the earth.
Completely different topic: I've found myself wondering what to do when boredom seems to be the most exciting thing in life. I've tried various things such as staring at a wall, talking to a stuffed bear I might possibly be crazy...note to self "seek help" and stuff like reading but my attention span is nonexistent so I could use some ideas because I've exhausted all of my own :)
Since I can't think of anything else to say this post seems to be over!
*tip of the day: don't lock your keys in the trunk of your car

So, at first I was like "no way am I getting on a horse, EVER" because of a traumatic horse experience a few years ago but I went ahead and got on. As I was riding the horse was sneezing and this was the point where I freaked out and jumped off. I've become more comfortable with horse riding and can now stay on the horse for a whole five minutes. I decided to reward myself for my bravery and invested in a pair of boots...I never thought I would ever say that and they are almost my favorite pair of shoes.
So, basically horse therapy (as I prefer to call it) is a wonderful way to get therapized.

I once thought "I'm single now, a reject, a failure" but NO! Life is better now, life is actually good being single. I attempted marriage in all my youthful stupidity and now as far as I'm concerned it never even happend. I'm movin' on, I'm bustin' out! There are brighter days ahead my friends and I'm going out to celebrate my anniversary without a husband!
September 14th is the actual day of divorce paper finalization and it came and went without me remembering but I'm remembering now and there's a party going on in my tiny little head! I think I'll buy myself a present...
Tip of the day: nobody actually cares what you will be eating for lunch on wednesday
