Random Monday

It's Monday night. I should be working.  I got an awesome new computer at work, problem is, I left early tonight to come home and meet my cousin to run, and now I can't log in to the new computer.  It's giving me a touch of the tight chest panic feeling, but I can't control it, so I have to let it go and unless the IT guys can figure it out, go to work really early in the morning to try to get in some hours.

So, I shall blog some randomness.

First, I LOVE the Voice.  CeeLo and his cat kind of freak me out, but overall I think the judges have great chemistry, and I love the blind auditions.  Unique voices are the best.  I'm watching last night's now.  I know I've said it before, but I love seeing people doing what they love and being great at it!!  And I love the joy in the friend and family room when the chair turn.

Second, and this is quite random, but couponing helps me not overeat.  I was raised to know the value of a dollar, not to waste, and to clean my plate.  I know now, as do my parents, that that was probably not the best lesson for your kid's waistline.  Anyway, I have to fight my brain sometimes that thinks that throwing away food is wasting, and tell it that sending the food down my throat is just as much of a waist.  Tonight, I ended up cooking some Rice A Roni rice for supper that I had bought for almost nothing when it was on sale and I had a coupon.  Was there any struggle in sending the extra to the trash, none!  Freedom!!

Third, it's getting colder.  It's February, it should be cold, but how about some snow??  I don't want high heating bills and frozen toes unless some white stuff is headed our way.  But, on the other hand, a little nip in the air is kind of nice.  I help it doesn't hurt my blooming buttercups, yup, that's how warm it is!!

Fourth, my run tonight was wonderful.  It's just so great to be hitting the pavement again.  I've really missed it, as has my extra flab.  I'm also ready to get back on the weight and abs train.  I have the stuff here at the house, just have to do it!!

Fifth, this is my favorite verse this week from 1 Thessaloanians, trying to focus on it...  16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not treat prophecies with contempt 21 but test them all; hold on to what is good, 22 reject every kind of evil. 23 May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.
So much in there.  I've always loved 16-18, such simple language, specific commands.  My mom's favorite word is Rejoice which probably also draws me to this passage.  But, this week when I read it, more jumped out at me "Do not quench the Spirit" - wow, this is something I've struggled with as of late, not saying something when I feel the Spirit is telling me to, and on the flip side, a huge sense of peace when I have followed the Spirit's lead on something I had been fighting for a while. 

Sixth, I have a teeth cleaning on Friday, and I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seventh, I think that's all for now, but this has been fun.  Who knew what kind of post could be written when you can't work at night!!
