TMI Tuesday

Hi peeps! It’s been a long day, I’m exhausted. No energy to be creative for TMI Tuesdayso I ripped these questions (and modified) from a dating website.

Yes, I’m listening…

garfields listening_tmi
1. Who has been the biggest influence in your life?   I’d have to say my son because I’ve had to do & learn so many things & face parts of myself I didn’t want to ever find let alone admit to or face & I wouldn’t have been able to do any of it if it wasn’t for him & knowing he needed me to do it whether he ever knew it or not.

2. What kinds of things really make you laugh?    All sorts of things…usually juvenile humor, sarcasm, or cats lol they’re guaranteed to get a laugh out of me.

3. What’s your favorite place in the entire world?    I guess my house since I don’t really have any other place.  Used to be my grandma’s in her kitchen/dining room with her but now…I guess it’s my bed on a stormy night laughing at the cats & my kid all joining me.

4. Who is your best friend? What do you like about him/her?    Arial & *laughs* I’ve covered that a few times – Here as well as in various other places.

5. What’s your biggest goal in life right now?    Lose this weight & become the person I know I can be

6. What was your family like growing up?    It was always interesting & we adopted all the strays…both pets *laughs* & kids it seemed like.

Bonus: What is one thing about you that would surprise us?    That I’m scared of my own shadow even now & so much a frightened little girl who sometimes feels so alone in the world

Update for the week

This’ll be short since real life has me good the last few days.  I gained 0.2 lbs, but that’s all so go me.  And nothing super interesting happened in SL or WoW I’ve just been concentrating on trying to make things work with my lifestyle changes so might be quiet for a week or 2 but will be back better than ever I promise!

Hope everyone’s enjoying their weekend & hugs to all of you!

Random post for this week

What is the main thing that builds & boosts your self-confidence?  Why?

I’ve though hard about this overnight & I can’t think of any specific thing that does either of those.  For me, just knowing how far I’ve come & letting myself feel what I feel now is more than enough to keep my self confidence up.  I remember what I was like before & how I feel now…there’s no comparing it.  So if anything, just taking a few seconds to remember how bad I had gotten helps me remember how far I’ve come & that’s about as close as I can think of for an answer to this. *smiles*

Hope everyone’s having a good week!

Weekly update time

I gained 0.2 lbs this week but am good with that considering I earned it. *laughs* Tho found out when I went to the doctor this week that not only have I lost 5 lbs since last time but my labs have been good for long enough so I don’t have to get my blood drawn every 3 months while he looks for diseases that aren’t there.  Also went to the grocery store with a friend for the first time in months.  It was only to get some cantaloupe, strawberries, carrots & a premade salad but that was a big deal on my part even if it only lasted 10 minutes. *chuckles*

In SL…right now things are in flux.  In it & in real life I’m reevaluating my choices & goals & the people in my life so we’ll see how things go once I’m done with that.  It’s a good thing tho…am happy about it in both worlds as it’s been a long time coming.

Hope that you all have a good weekend & a good upcoming week as well!

Pic of the week 7

It’s been a very odd week this week so I don’t have much to choose from for pics but here’s a picture of the stuffed cat my dad let me get after I had to put Duncan to sleep last Sept.  I took him to work with me the other day because I had to go to the doctor before work & get blood drawn & needed the comfort since it’s wicked hard to draw blood from me.  And while I was sitting there, talking to a friend, I was posing him & she thought this 1 was funny so I decided to take a picture of it, & am now sharing it!  Woohoo *laughs* the fun of being a little sometimes.  Hugs to all & have a great weekend!

This week’s random topic

Tell us about a teacher who had a real impact on your life, either for the better or the worse. How is your life different today because of him or her?

I’ve been doing alot of thinking about this since I got the number the other day, & the only teacher I can think of that really made an impact on my life was my dad…even tho it wasn’t really because of him being a teacher.  But thanks to him, I do have a pretty good appreciation for all types of music & I think that always makes someone better.  Other than that, I’m at a loss so *laughs* that’ll just have to do for today.

Hope everyone has a great day & enjoy your week!

Update for the week

And here’s this week’s update.  First off i lost 2 lbs…not sure where they went but sure don’t plan on trying to find them *laughs*.  And except for my knee aching alot, have actually felt a little better physically all around then I have in a while.  And my appetite seems to have shrunk so we’ll see how that goes too.

Then on SL, it’s the end of a huge period of change in my life.  As you saw from the picture yesterday, I’ve been 1 of the finalists in a pageant that’s been going on since December for me.  And yesterday was the pageant where I ended up as first runner up, & 1 of my best friends on SL was actually the winner.  I’ve learned alot about people & myself doing it & am so glad of the opportunity & thrilled to tears with how it ended.  I couldn’t have asked for me & thank you to all of you who have helped me thru this…I won’t forget it anytime soon.

Also things seem to be going better relationship-wise for me as well since i’m actually quite content…for the most part.  My little does occasionally have her I want attention fits but he’s trying his best to keep up with her & learning some of the signs that I’m not always even aware of that I need that little bit more of attention so I couldn’t ask for anything more right now.  Ok I could do with a few more rules always but *laughs & grins* just couldn’t help myself there.

Anyways…everyone have a good rest of the weekend & a good week & thank you for being here!  oh & don’t forget…random number for the Wednesday random blog topic!
