I don't. ;)
I only drive the correct way on the freeway.
That's hilarious. ;)
I strongly dislike math.
I was terrible at it no matter how hard I tried & I really tried.

Dancing my way through December! -
I'm spending lots of time with my family!
I'm back at doing the minimalist challenge again slowly but trying.
I would like to get back to going to Church every Sunday but just haven't been making it happen lately.
I need to stop staying up until 3am. I don't know why that keeps happening.
I need to get back into the habit of going to the gym again. It's been way too long.
I need to put lotion on my hands every night again the weather is drying them out.
I still need to work on my patience.
I need to use kind words or keep quiet even if it hurts. ;)
I need to communicate with my SO kindly even though he drives me crazy. ;)
It's getting really difficult to get on the 43Things website.
I really hope that we haven't been abandoned completely.
I dislike jumping from site to site.
I wish that we could just delete the spam entries from our own pages it would just make everything so much easier.
Grateful that I was able to post today!
Good busy almost all day today!
But I made time to use the heating pad going to try the ice pack too.
And I played less Solitaire even though I want to keep playing. ;)
My neck is still kinky. ;)
Yesterday I was too busy for self-care.
Today I will try harder to take better care of my neck.
It's been over a month since we've been to the gym.

Maybe finding the chair will be easier than finding the table.
Still no table.
One of the tables has only gotten worse...
I found one of the chairs!
It has been decluttered!
Oops I wrote this under the wrong goal. ;)
@jadedforever Yay! Good job!
Nope still no table.
@jadedforever it can wait. It's being protected for your return right now ;)
No progress on this goal.
The one thing I really need to work on yet I find it so overwhelming...
Our dining room table is/has been missing. ;)
It was cluttered, I uncluttered it & we ate dinner at it for a bit & that was quite nice.
But it is completely cluttered again.
So my goal is to find our table again & be able to eat dinner there together.
@jadedforever lol I used to have this battle. Not as bad now but still need to work on never having to face this again.
@jadedforever Some surfaces just seem to attract clutter more easily for some reason! Maybe look at what finds its way on the table, and create alternative spots for these things.
@jadedforever I love your take on this! Funny.
I gave the man with the dog outside the store some change!
Especially after the lady at the store was kind to me!
I thought that I would pay it forward!
A kind stranger!
The kind woman at the store who made sure I had enough money!
It turns out I was just searching for my change purse.
But I think she was prepared to pay the difference if I needed help!
My SO has been making me laugh lately!
I should be writing down the funny things he says to me.
He's funnier when he doesn't try to be funny though.
I was able to do a good deed today!
I found someones glasses in the parking lot & was able to return them to their owner!
They gave me a hug & thanked me!
My SO is funny sometimes!
He made me laugh on the drive home tonight!
I was playing a game with faces on it & he looks over & says "What's that? Tinder!" & I started laughing! :)
I leaned over & gave him a kiss for making me laugh!
Meditation does not work for me every time apparently.
Last night was a late night & I didn't mean to stay up so late.
I tried to do a sleep meditation around 2am.
And I was still awake at 4am.
@jadedforever Aww, I'm sorry! It's so frustrating when one can't get to sleep.
@jadedforever awe, no! Keep trying
I did my sleep meditation in bed last night.
I guess it worked I don't remember falling asleep.
Also I took Benadryl for my allergies so I'm sure that helped too.
But I woke up later because my headphones were smashing my ears.
I'm planning to do more sleep meditation before bed tonight!
Meditation can be stressful.
The night before my bluetooth headphones needed charging & I didn't know that so they kept beeping in my ear while attempting to meditate.
And last night I just couldn't get comfortable with the headphones on while laying in bed.
I'm not really loving bluetooth headphones.
I did 2 sleep meditations in bed last night!
It helped I didn't watch TV in bed last night!
Rest In Peace Tom Petty...
October 20, 1950 - October 2, 2017 (age 66)
I've always liked this song!
Tom Petty - Free Fallin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lWJXDG2i0A
WHAT?!?!?! No fucking way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had to go Google that.....I had no idea. Oh God. So may rockers leaving us.
Thankfully we still have their music but this is soooooo sad.....sniffle..........
Jana Kramer - Why Ya Wanna
I could listen to this song all day long!
@jadedforever One of my favorites. I also like this song and the energy of this performance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65YKSl4jfgE
Jana Kramer - Whiskey
I'm a Jana Kramer fan! :)
@jadedforever By the way, how do you pick your songs?
In general or for this goal?
This goal wasn't working out for me so now it's just songs that I like!
@ExplorerSoul Good song! Hopefully her whiskey man will stop punching people, haha! Gotta love country musicians...they def. know how to tell a good story.
@ExplorerSoul - speaking of whiskey, I love this band Little Big Town! Check this out: https://youtu.be/2pnPa863jGU
@garrin I'm not sure if this was meant for @jadedforever or me (sometimes the reply button is a bit funky) but I checked it out. I've heard of this band but am not very familiar with their music. This song definitely has a summer vibe!
@ExplorerSoul Oh, oops. It was meant for you and @jadedforever too : ) Yeah, that one is a bit cheery, their other songs I think are less summery.
@garrin I realized that I'm actually familiar with a few of their songs. Girl Crush is the song I've heard the most, and I've heard Better Man, too. Maybe there are others! Her voice is quite distinctive.
@ExplorerSoul They performed Girl Crush at the Grammy's (or one of those award shows) a year or two ago. I love that song too.
I really like the Girl Crush song!
I've heard that one before!
This whole CD is awesome. https://youtu.be/iUs-jqmyce0
@garrin Do you know The Band Perry? This song, in particular, has a certain feel to it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIdCo_QAz_E
@ExplorerSoul I like this song! Thanks for sending. Haven't heard of them, no.
@garrin I think their first album (self-titled) is worth checking out (the song above is from their second album, though).
@ExplorerSoul Cool, I'll check it out
Rebecca Black - Saturday
An improvement from her Friday song! ;)
"Tryin to get Friday outta my head." LOL
@jadedforever lolol this cracks me up!! And it's Saturday!!
It's better though right?
Yes, Happy Saturday! :)
@jadedforever I like this cover! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFzQXeBwPEU
Jana Kramer - Circles
This one hasn't grown on me just yet.
I'm still getting to know the song.
But I do love her voice!
@jadedforever I like the song better than I like the video.
I was able to get a refund on my terrible quality Taylor Swift record!
Thank goodness. :)
Listening to Her Nibs!!
Miss Georgia gibbs on my record player!
Listening to Rubinstein on my record player!
RACHMANINOFF Concerto No. 2
LIZT Concerto No. 1
Wallenstein/RCA Victor Symphony
Listening to Taylor Swift on my new record.
Unfortunately the quality of the record isn't very good.
Disappointed with how it sounds especially after it was a pain to get it...
Too bad I probably can't return it.
I'm going to see if I can return it.
I want to set up a music corner/station somewhere in my place.
If I did that I know that I would be able to play my records more often & easier!
I moved a nightstand.
I got bored with where all my furniture is.
I still don't like where I moved the nightstand so I will have to move it back or move it again anyway.
Cleaning my 3 rings right now!
All sparkly now! :)
Cleaning my jewelry today! -
2 pairs of earrings
Last night -
I cleaned my rings again! :)
Another ring -
I cleaned another one of my rings tonight! :)
Clean jewelry -
I cleaned 3 pairs of earrings & 2 rings with my own DIY jewelry cleaner!
All sparkly now.
Uh oh, I bought 2 more mugs. ;)
One for me & one my SO!
And he just bought me a mug as well!
Oops, so really 3 new mugs.
And I really wanted to buy the one with hummingbirds on it too.
@jadedforever lol I used to have soooo many mugs but paired down when I moved. I love different mugs.
Tinkerbell mug -
I'm drinking coffee out of my green Tinkerbell mug today! :)
It holds a lot of coffee.
Black Starbucks mug -
I'm drinking coffee out of my black Starbucks coffee mug!
I don't even drink Starbucks coffee their mugs are nice though.
Picture not mine.
@jadedforever Nice pic! :)
sorry not my picture.
Just one I googled.
@jadedforever Oh crumbs! :P
Another Eeyore mug -
I'm drinking coffee out of my other Eeyore mug today!
Cream colored mug -
I'm drinking coffee out of my cream colored mug with raised dots along the edge!
Doesn't hold that much coffee.
I can't find a picture that looks like my mug.
11) Birthday Cake
It was ok.
10) Fruit punch
It was sour.
@jadedforever fun goal!
It really is! :)
9) Flavor Mash-Up/Raspberry Lemonade
It was ok.
8) Flavor Mash-Up/Peach-Mango
I grew up eating Dum-Dums so this is a super fun challenge for me!
My Mom bought me a small bag of these for my birthday!
I even shared my Dum-Dums today with my Sibling & my SO!
7) Cotton Candy
It didn't taste too much like Cotton Candy.
I found a penny on a walk with my SO tonight!
I found a penny outside!
I found a dime at Walmart!
I found a penny near the register in Dollar Tree today! :)
Total = $3.05
I found 2 pennies yesterday!
One penny was inside of Walmart.
The other penny was in the parking lot.
Total = $3.04
I think my hydrangea might be dead.
A lot of my plants are looking sad right now...
I worked in my little garden today!
Put extra soil in my little plants!
One of my succulents is looking a little off. :(
Recently I bought a flowering plant at the dollar store.
I think that I might have killed this one already...
I planted some of my plants into new pots!
Some of them aren't looking so good.
Hopefully this will help!
If not I might have to get different soil I don't even know the difference.
@jadedforever let me know. I just killed 2 succulents and the 3rd is not looking healthy.
@Andia Ok. I'll keep you updated.
I ate strawberries last night! :)
I ate strawberries today!
Yesterday I ate blueberries!
Today I ate apples & mandarin oranges!
I also ordered strawberries instead of french fries!
For Tuesday -
I ate strawberries!
@jadedforever You sure like strawberries!
What's funny is I didn't really think I did that much.
I don't like the strawberry seeds in a smoothie.
But because I rarely eat them it was a nice change to have them!
I ate more strawberries!
What is something not grown-up that you still have in your bedroom?
I still have lots of things.
I need to donate some more stuffed animals.
And Britney Spears has been now taken off the wall.
@jadedforever My teddies and my Diaries...
there is so much more but this have got special niche , So i dont think emma ever going replace these with anything

@johnjerryjaslin @sahlavit @kuntzman this account has been reported multiple times
@jadedforever I guess a toy car, well not really a toy, it is for decoration. My room is very 'grown up.'
What is your favorite Tom Hanks movie?
I'm watching Splash again & I think it's really funny! :)
@jadedforever Good question, so many good movies. Loved his earlier stuff like Splash when he was more comedic, also loved him as a dramatic actor. If I had to choose one though, 'Forest Gump' would be that choice.
@Airos I just recently watched Forrest Gump for the first time! :)
I plan to watch more Tom Hanks movies soon!
@jadedforever You never saw Forest Gump?! Did you love it?
I worked at a drive-in when it came out. The screen is always up there and between the lobby speakers and all the cars with the windows down you hear the movie wherever you are. So I think we played it for 7 weeks and I worked 5 or 6 nights a week. So I got to know it really well. Most movies got to be uggh after a week, but I never tired of Forest Gump.
@Airos I liked it! I don't think that I would say I loved it.
But glad that I watched it anyway! I tend to think I have a different taste of favorite movies compared to everyone else!
I like Tom Hanks in The Terminal & Castaway!
@jadedforever toy story
@jadedforever Big is my favorite Hanks movie
@jadedforever I have never been a big fan of his films, but I have heard him in a couple of interviews and he seems to have integrity in spades, which I appreciate as it is one of the characteristics I most admire in others and one I hope I too embody.
Something you were disappointed with recently?
It doesn't have to be food either.
I recently tried Philadelphia cheesecake cups.
I kept seeing the commercial for them.
And I was so disappointed I thought it was soo not good & I just couldn't eat it. Blech.
@jadedforever tried some gluten free apple oatmeal bars, they were so awful, but they only had 4 g of sugar so I forced myself to eat half of it. terrible!
@jadedforever Devil Dogs!
When I was a kid, I loved Devil Dogs. I tried one recently, and it was AWFUL. Such a dissapointment. I know it wasn't just because I am an adult now and my tastes have matured, because I still love other junk. A friend told me that she thinks Hostess changed their formulas on their products to make them more cheap to produce. I'm sure she's right.
@rosewilder Life has been, in my mind, disappointing lately. You asked. I know that this is a terrible mindset, and I am getting help. Related to this, humankind in general . . . people focused on division, war, intolerance. I hope in my lifetime or at least in my kids' lifetime we finally solve the problems like war, famine, poverty . . . that plague humankind, preventing us from realizing our potential. Imagine all the money that is spent on the military now is, instead, spent on science, education, space exploration, helping those in need . . . Instead of investing in means to end life, invest in means to enrich life. So much we could do but are not.
@Airos I'm so sorry you are feeling this way. I agree with your assessment of the mis-priorities and wasted potential that abounds lately, but I hope you can soon again find joy in life wherever it can come for you. For me, focusing on the little things helps.
Is there an October Bootcamp set up?
Does anyone want one? (if there isn't one)
@jadedforever there isn’t one yet
I kind of am focusing toward making my home nicer and develop some routines to keep moving it forward. My October work trip is canceled I think so looking forward to being home. :)
A song that makes you cry?
A movie that makes you cry?
I enjoy a good song or a good movie that makes me cry.
Pay It Forward makes me cry.
Demi Lovato - Skyscraper makes me cry. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_8ydghbGSg
@jadedforever Pay it Forward made me sob. I had no idea what the movie was about and it took me by surprise.
@jadedforever Fast, by Lit, because I am a mom and a big bowl of hormone chowder and I just cannot deal with stuff like this anymore. Likewise 100 Years, by Five for Fighting.
Also, for personal reasons, Bobby Jean, by Bruce Springsteen will never not make me cry.
I used to not cry at sad movies, but because of the aforementioned soup I cry at crazy things these days - comedies, horror, whatever. I will find the sad/poignant in anything. And I hate crying. I am a snotty, ugly, swollen-eyes-and-3-day-migraine crier. I therefore avoid most intentionally sad stuff; I can't even listen to those three songs I mentioned anymore. But I make an exception for This Is Us.
@sabryn Bobby Jean is a great song, a sad goodbye from Bruce to Little Steven. We all put our own meaning on songs, which makes the experience wonderful!
@taylor Why did he call it Bobby Jean? Is that a funny nickname he has for Van Zandt?
@beequeen He didn't explain the name in his book when he talked about the song. I think he likes writing songs with multiple layers and meanings.
@jadedforever Springsteen's "Counting on a Miracle" did that to me the other day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=384lSOHiyyo . I lost it (while driving) when it came on the radio because I thought a "friend" was really ill and needed a miracle. A week later, the illness turned out to be a hoax. I'm still glad though, that music was able to make me feel something so deeply.
Back in the mid 1990s, after my dad died, Joan Osborne's "What if God was one of us?" got to me often.
I've always loved the song What if God was one of us - Joan Osborne!
@jadedforever That is an interesting song indeed. Not really a tear jerker though.
@jadedforever @jadedforever This old song, 'Season in the Sun' by Terry Jacks, still creates a lump in my troat and has brought me to tears many times. I avoid it most of the time. It won the Juno award for best Canadian song two years in a row. Such a powerful song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YG9otasNmxI
I saw this at the movies with my Mom & my Sibling!
I thought it was ok.
I want to watch All About Eve & The Graduate.
I also saw this Cary Grant movie at the movies with my Mom!
We liked it.
But now that I've seen North by Northwest we like that one even better!
I saw this Cary Grant movie at the movies with my Mom!
We both really liked it!
It was a funny movie!
@jadedforever I've considered watching all of Cary Grant movies. I may have watched half of them.
Which one was your favorite so far? I'm definitely going to look into watching more of his movies! :)
Here are some of my favorite Cary Grant movies.
I Was a Male War Bride
Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House
The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer
Things haven't been good at home since my hospital visit.
I'm just disappointed & so hurt by my SO & his lack of feelings.
My SO wasn't supportive, caring or empathetic at all to me.
Financially I can't afford to leave, he knows this.
I just want things to be good between us.
I just want to be loved & understood.
And yep I might delete this later.
No one cares anyway.
I'll pray about it.
@jadedforever We care. I hope things can get better.
That's sweet of you to say so! :)
I went to Jamba Juice & got my Pumpkin Smash again!
It's so good!
My SO loves me we had to go to 2 locations to get it for me! ;)
Sunday smoothie -
I tried to make one tonight!
I'm obsessed with the Pumpkin Smash from Jamba Juice!
I can't afford to get one from there every day so I will have to learn to make some pumpkin smoothies at home!
I haven't been dreaming as much lately.
Weird for me.
John Cena -
Not sure if I have a crush on John Cena or what but I had a dream about him recently! ;)
For the record he's not really my type too muscular but sometimes he looks cute.
I think I wanted to take a picture of him! :)
I was crocheting again tonight! :)
I was crocheting again last night!
Still enjoying being crafty!
I did some more crocheting tonight!
I've been crocheting almost every day!
I'm still crocheting!
@jadedforever I can see this being relaxing while you sit and talk or watch a movie.
I picked up my crochet again last night! :)
I didn't even have to google how to crochet to get started again.
I did have to re-start a few times to be pleased with how the beginning was coming out.
I think this may be one of my very best ones yet. Unfortunately it's a very small amount of yarn I decided to work with I will have to figure out what to do there.
I'll probably have to figure out how to add more yarn.
I don't want to go to the dentist.
But I need to go... :(
I had hot Maple Brown Sugar oatmeal late last night! :)
I'm having hot Maple Brown Sugar oatmeal & coffee right now!
I bought more oatmeal & milk tonight!
Maple & Brown Sugar oatmeal again!
I need to buy more at the store.
@jadedforever Could you post a picture, please? I have no idea what it is...
@morningsun Overnight oats? Or just Maple & Brown Sugar oatmeal?
@jadedforever Overnight oats
@morningsun I'm just using instant oatmeal for mine & adding milk & refrigerate overnight. Eat cold whenever!
I tried adding yogurt & honey only once so far.
I haven't experimented much with other ingredients yet.
And I'm also eating microwaved oatmeal because I still enjoy it that way too! :)
Recipe from the food network:
1/3 to 1/2 cup liquid such as dairy milk, almond, cashew or coconut milk
1/3 to 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/3 to 1/2 cup yogurt, optional
1 teaspoon chia seeds, optional but highly recommended
1/2 banana, mashed, optional
Serving suggestions: fruit (fresh or dried), nuts, nut butter, seeds, protein powder, granola, coconut, spices, citrus zest and vanilla extract
Add the desired amounts of milk, oats, yogurt, chia seeds and banana to a jar or container and give them a good stir. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 5 hours.
In the morning, add additional liquid if you'd like. Once you achieve the desired consistency, top with fruit, nuts, nut butter, seeds, protein powder, granola, coconut, spices, zest or vanilla extract.
@jadedforever Hmm... I will look at the store one day and see if we have such things here Thanks
For Sunday -
I ate warm oatmeal on Sunday night before bed!
I missed a day.
I realized that I ate french fries 3 days in a row.
I didn't even try to talk my SO out of buying us french fries since they were the cheapest option.
I know that's a terrible reason to eat them but it's the truth.
I ate half the french fries again tonight.
Last night my SO ordered a combo.
I ate half of his french fries.
When we went out to dinner on Friday I ordered a salad & a baked potato instead of french fries.
I ate french fries tonight.
I wanted a salad instead but they wouldn't let me substitute it for my fries.
I added a salad though.
I got 2 fortune cookies with no fortunes. :(
The last time that happened it was bad luck...
@jadedforever Oh hope it's not bad luck this time
@jadedforever stingy fortune cookie makers. Thing happy positive thoughts. It may mean you have a blank slate and anything is possible!
The road before you is long drive safely
You will be involved in many humanitarian projects.
Lucky numbers 8 13 27 35 40 41
Important associates will be there for you, if needed.
Your talents will earn you the highest status and prestige.
I just unsubscribed to a catalog/mail that kept coming in the mail every few days.
I hope that fixes that issue it was so annoying.
I just unsubscribed from a bunch of websites from my Email list!
I wish that I could easily do that for all the paper mail that comes into the house.
I'm trying to tell myself when I'm out looking/shopping for house things to look for grown-up things.
But grown-up things aren't quite as fun.
Maybe there is a happy medium there.
I'll have to think of some ideas of what that might be/look like!
You know your bedroom is not grown-up when you take Britney Spears in a frame off of your wall. ;)
This photo might have been better suited for my bedroom.
Cancelled the newspaper today!
It will save us a little bit of money & a little less paper clutter for me!
Tried to cancel but they were already closed.
@jadedforever We need to do this, too!
The first thing that I thought of this morning was that I should make a dentist appointment.
I just couldn't force myself to do it yet...
I know it will be the only thing I think about after I make an appointment as well...
@jadedforever YOU CAN DO IT!
I took a risk & let my SO take the scissors to my hair today!
I gave him directions to follow & he didn't quite follow them but he tried.
I saw him make a face after the first cut.
I still want to get an edgy haircut.
But I didn't want to think about getting one right before Thanksgiving or Christmas in case it looks terrible on me. ;)
Not my drawing.
I strongly dislike when people won't stop for me to walk in the parking lot.
This happened to me again yesterday & it makes me feel invisible...
And I'm kind when I see people need to walk across a parking lot!
Someone called me stupid online.
It's something I will hear in my head all day long...
Maybe even longer.
It takes away the safety of being online & just being yourself without others tearing you down for no reason at all.
I know what they said means nothing.
But I'm a sensitive person & it hurts anyway.
@jadedforever I'm sorry. Do you believe you did something stupid in this case? If not, try not to let it hold weight. I know it still hurts but ask yourself if this person truly matters to you.
@ExplorerSoul Nope, I don't believe I said or did anything wrong, it was just a meaningless comment on their part. I just don't want to hear something especially that isn't true. Luckily it was just a stranger.
@jadedforever Honey, I'm sorry. I think they're stupid for saying it! You are thoughtful, intelligent, and interesting. They were way off.
@BeingBryn Thank you for your kind words, it helps! :)
I was in a good mood last night before we went to the store.
But a lady that worked there had a bad attitude.
And she put me in a grumpy mood after that.
I don't know how to bounce back after that happens.
@jadedforever reframing helps.. This is a really good talk https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fGCo_wx97mo
@wordsncolor I'll take a look at the video later. Thanks! :)
@jadedforever I use to have real difficulty with that as well. Now I tell myself, their bad attitude is a reflection of their story, not yours. It's about them, not about you. That's almost become a mantra for me when I have to deal with grumpy, rude or otherwise not nice people. Then I go home and work out, working the frustration and grumpiness out of my system. Sometimes, I'll put on soothing music and let my mind wonder to all the beautiful places and people in this world. Good luck with the battle. It took me a lot of years to let go of other peoples dramas.
@hercat66 Thank you so much for your kind words & thoughts on this! :)
