Every year on New Year’s day people all over the world celebrate by making New Year’s resolutions. Why do we wait until the new year to make a resolution? There is no better time for a change than the present.
What do you do if it’s March and you think you need to get in better shape, or drink more water, or eat healthier? Do you wait the rest year in order to make a change? Or do you decide to just get up and do it with no other motivation?
Is the new year itself just the motivation to make the changes in your life and nothing else? Would you still be making these changes even if it were not the new year? I’m not really sure myself.
I am not normally the kind of person to make a New Year’s resolution. This is probably because I don’t want to be held accountable and I am probably trying to secretly avoid potential failure.
This year I decided to go ahead and make a resolution. My resolution is simple, to enjoy every day and be happy for what I have not for what I don’t. Did you make a New Year’s resolution? If you did, what did you chose and why?
It’s not even Thanksgiving yet and everywhere I go there are Christmas decorations that have been put up. This drives me insane Can’t we just celebrate one holiday at a time? Why is everyone in such a rush to have all of the Christmas stuff out? Do they not have enough respect for Thanksgiving to wait until at least Black Friday to put up the tree?
I won’t be putting my tree up or any decorations for Christmas until AFTER Thanksgiving thank you very much. One popular store that I love, agrees with me on this point. Thank you Nordstrom for waiting and only celebrating one holiday at a time.

There are some really funny kids movies out. I love the way there are different levels of humor in the movies, so that children find funny things but there are also funny moments for adult level humor. One of my favorite kids movies is called, Up. This movie is funny in so many different ways. I have watched it several times and every time I see it again I notice little things that I hadn’t noticed before.
Commercials for people to add a Medicare supplement insurance plan to their existing coverage are all over the television. Every time I watch these commercials it makes me sad to think that the insurance that we get from the government it not complete. Growing up I would have never have thought that I would need to buy any kind of supplemental coverage to my insurance plan. It ticks me off a bit that these plans aren’t all inclusive and won’t take care of my every medical need.
Though peeved as I may be, I’m glad that companies have risen to the occasion and have seen the gap in health care coverage and are providing plans to help supplement what is offered through Medicare. I have a ways off to go before I will be needing to really worry about finding plans like this for myself. Retirement is no where near in my future.
Checking out Medical News Today is a great way to find out more about these kinds of plans and an avenue to stay current with today’s health news headlines. I’m sure that website has plenty of visitors twice my age checking out what is best for them on a regular basis.
Temper tantrums, melt downs, hissy fits, you name it, it’s all the same thing. I can’t stand when for some reason Lady Bug freaks out and throws the biggest temper tantrum known to mankind. She’s pretty good for the most part, but when she starts whining and complaining about the littlest things it really gets on my nerves.
I try to be as patient as I can because I know she is young and is still learning and I can’t expect her to be perfect all of the time. I know part of it is probably her way to get attention. I’m really trying hard to not give her negative attention. When she throws the awful fits I have to just plain ignore her and not give in. I don’t want her to associate throwing a fit with mommy giving in and her getting what she wants.
