It’s that time again! 5 Random thoughts in no particular order … here we go:
1 – For the past 2+ years a sticky note that says “Conf Call” has been stuck on my office door. I really should play “Conf Call Bingo.” I could have been a winner many times over!
2 – I doubt I’d ever get a tattoo. I don’t dislike them and I’m not bothered by others having them. I just can’t think of one single thing that I want etched into my skin … forever. Plus – what if it’s a really bad tattoo? Not like hair color, you can’t change it … you’re stuck with that. Thoughts?
3 – 8 months ago I eliminated grains. Within 6 weeks I lost 15 lbs (8.5 in the first 2) and 16+” ~ and ~ I’ve held it off despite my crazy work/travel schedule, moving, company reorganization, Mom’s passing, kid’s wedding, etc. Now that I’m through all that craziness I’m looking forward to life going back “to normal,” whatever that is. I am still eating my eggs, healthy fats, meats, veggies and berries. I’m packing my lunch and declining lunch dates; I prefer my fuel to anything a restaurant is serving. Talk about a shift change! Looking back and taking stock I lost:
- skin rashes,
- fretful sleep
- wheezing (threw out my DUSTY inhaler),
- joint pain,
- chronic respiratory infections,
- cold sores
- red/puffy skin
- low blood sugar shakes
- a happy tummy,
- clear skin (and frequent compliments!)
- bright eyes,
- shiny, bouncy hair,
- energy & vitality
- a defined jaw line & neck!
- no blood sugar swings
- pain-free joints,
- restorative sleep and
- the ability to soar through life’s challenges without cold sores!

4 – Currently interviewing to fill an open position. Candidates who cut to the front of the line and contact me directly (circumventing the HR process)? Not cool. I don’t care who you know or how you got my info ~ back to the line you go!
5 – It’s Friday! We’re attending a family wedding tomorrow ~ yes we’ll go to the wedding ceremony and we’ll cry when we see the lovely bride peek around the corner. We’ll tear up when we see her Dad & Mom – Hubbs’ cousin – choke up at the sight of baby girl. They’ll see a tow-headed toddler; we’ll see a beautiful and accomplished young nurse. We’ll laugh and carry on with the aunts & uncles and cousins over drinks & appetizers at some bar we hit up before the reception starts. Later we’ll clink glasses and laugh and smile during the reception. I’ll wear something that twirls and my brown-eyed handsome man will take me for a spin on the dance floor. At home boxes still wait for us. Walls are still bare – not a picture in sight. Who cares? Not me. Life is meant to be … lived!
How about you? Ever played Conference Call Bingo? Will you get a tattoo? If so, what? Made any health changes lately? What do you think about line-cutters? And lastly, what’s on the docket for your weekend?
Happy Friday, peeps!
