I’m glad everyone enjoyed my last post about letting go… I promise more positivity soon! I just needed that and I’m glad it helped others out just a little 🙂 And yes, I need to take my own advice. I’ve been re-thinking some things of late. I’ve been in a funk lately… my life isn’t what I want it to be and I’m really trying to be positive on the blog but I can’t seem to get myself out of this… hole… that I’m in. I was hoping that getting back into blogging and cooking and working out and whatnot would get me out of it but so far no luck.. I really don’t know what to do. I think the root of it lies in that I haven’t faced some things that happened in the past; instead, I tried distract myself with people and stuff and things and never really faced my feelings and problems head on. And now, they’ve come back. Well they never really left but you get my drift… There are some things and people and feelings that I have to let go of. Easier said than done.

ANYWAYS, a little excitement around these parts… I got a new phone! I had an iPhone and I’m still a lover at heart buuut the Droid has been calling my name. So I answered 🙂 I got a Droid Incredible! And I am in LOVE! IN LOVE. I’m still figuring things out but hopefully I’ll have it down soon!

I had NO idea what I wanted for dinner so I tweeted for some advice. This lovely lady solved my dilemma..


@Jess5694 mmm….stir-fried chicken with teriyaki sauce, pineapple, veggies and rice?

Is she one smart lady or what?!

  • pinch of salt and cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup water

I had dinner out tonight… a few bits of a kid’s hamburger (yes.. I need to do a post about my return to red meat) with a couple of fries. I wasn’t feeling that hot at the time so I didn’t eat much.

When I got home much later tonight, I had this bowl of cereal…

Sept 15 041

It had Fiber One, Grape Nuts, and Kashi Sunshine.

As well as a small bowl of ice cream.

Have a nice night bloggies!

Sometimes its important to leave, so we are given that chance to see how special that someone really is. –Washeem
