I want to loose weight. And please, I don't want this gift to come in the form of an illness in which I can't eat or lapse into a coma.And:
Make money. I want to make money, so I can spend it on a vacation. Dh has a little more than 2 weeks of vacation time before September 1st. And dang it we are gonna use it. I just need to fund it.Now, before I go on, Santa did bring me a sofa, so we are cool on that. And I have kept all my other New Years resolutions besides that dang quilt. But on these two items, perhaps I was not specific enough. I said I didn't want to loose weight because of an illness or coma. I should have added infection, teeth extraction and death in the family. First, I have an infection so I am eating apple sauce and soup, then I have teeth extracted and am eating apple sauce and soup, then my nephew passed away and I can't eat at all! And yes I lost 10 pounds and 2 dress sizes. I'd rather have the weight than to have been through all that ... not saying I want it back. Just saying being fat would have been a preference to going though all that.
And this travel thing, I meant all of us traveling. Dh got a nice check for back pay, so we made the money we were looking to make and we spent it on traveling. On him traveling out of state to a funeral. Thats not how I wanted this to work. Yes, I am glad we had the money to pay for the trip and there is no worthier cause, but Lord I would rather have my nephew than a trip around the world.
So Lord, new prayers: Keep us healthy, keep us safe, let us enjoy the world you gave us and be with us through each trial. Be merciful Lord. I appreciate there is no coincidences but circumstances could be less cruel.
Now, If you don't mind I have to go see if I actually have sweats to take on vacation. Now, thats a good problem!
