Furchildren, Polar Bears And Christmas In July

Posted 07-24-2010 at 10:19 AM by caninemom3

Today is Christmas in July and a very Merry CHRISTmas to everyone !! As I sit here typing and thinking and reflecting I am also listening to Christmas music. Not just any Christmas music, although all of it is special to me. This is Nat King Cole Christmas music. I love this man. When The Christmas Song comes on wherever I am, I can't help it but I get tears in my eyes. He is the epitome of childhood Christmas memories to me not to mention one of the most expressive, smooth and talented singers and jazz pianists I have ever heard. The Christmas Song by Nat instantaneously brings all my childhood memories flooding back. And they are all good ones. I can see myself at the age of 9 or 10 and my parents, my brothers and my sister all around the tree on Christmas morning and there is a definite magic in the air, though most of the magic occured then and now on Christmas Eve. I see us laughing, talking exchanging gifts and hugs and I am of course the apple of everyones' eyes because I am the...

Frustration Runs Through It

Posted 07-21-2010 at 10:30 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

I have learned during my years of writing, to let emotions wane before writing, especially if the emotions are painful. Tonight I am making an exception, because I do not know what else to do. I have been writing for a few weeks now about a promotion I was certain I was going to get, only to be disappointed tonight, when I learned I did not get it. I guess I got the confidence in this promotion, because my boss was the one to search me out for this position, and not the other way around. I understand the person that got the position has a little more experience in that area than I, and I am truly happy for him, as he is a great friend and a deserving fellow. I am extremely saddened right now for myself, as I looked at this as what my family needed, the money was going to be equal to getting an extra paycheck a month, and who couldn't use that, I could feel like I could be proud of my work again instead of burdensome, and always freezing. I am sick of working in a freezer, I have been doing...

Obssession And Hunger Of A Food Addict

Posted 07-17-2010 at 04:20 PM by caninemom3

[B]Tonight, Saturday, I am really struggling. I have run a gamot of emotions lately and each time I do my food obssession seems to kick in. I want to eat EVERYTHING in the house. Why do I get like this ?? My body is not truly hungry (at least I don't think it is). It just seems that all of my life has been spent dieting or gaining weight. I have been successful at losing weight many times as I am sure all of us have. The trick is to KEEP it off. I even did that for about 3 or 4 years. Then the hunger/obssession/binging returned as it ALWAYS DOES and I gained 30+ pounds in no time. I felt helpless. [/B]

[B]For the time being, I am not overweight. I am 5 feet, 2 inches and I am very, very small framed ( just like my mom, Susy) and I weigh in the range of 92 to 93 pounds. This is a good weight for my body. I know it is slight but any more weight and I kick into asthma. [/B]

[B]It just seems as though once I get food/eating "on the brain" it will NOT go...

Ponderings About Life, Christmas And Beyond..

Posted 07-16-2010 at 05:25 PM by caninemom3
Tags life

I guess you could say I am rather serious a lot of the time. At least in these blogs I certainly have been, but honestly I DO have a fun side!! I do have lots of questions, though that nobody here on Earth can answer. I ponder and ponder and then ponder some more. I will never understand why good people have to suffer when it seems bad, cruel people sometimes seem to have it easy and get away with the atrocities they have committed. Why ??? Why were the Nazis allowed to annihilate Jewish and other people ?? Why are sickos allowed to hurt (or worse) innocent children and animals ?? Why ?? I just don't understand. I believe in God and most specifically in Jesus Christ but I still question. Does that make me a heathon ?? I don't think so.

Since I have gotten into my mid 50s I must confess I have begun to feel I have more BEHIND me than I have BEFORE me and it terrifies me. It does no good, but I worry about illness and death all the time. I guess you might say I am ruining...
