it's time for some editing

I've recently read a book about creating a wardrobe all my own because I've recently decided that I am tired of looking like I just graduated high school all the time.
In this great book the first thing talked about is editing your wardrobe and throwing out things that are not uniquely you, or that you won't alter to make uniquely you. This got me thinking if I need to do this with my wardrobe, how much more so do I need to do this with my life. I need to edit out the negativity in my life.
I absolutely do not like the person this job has made me become, therefore the job must go. I am currently searching for a new job and have some promising leads and I cannot wait to turn in my two week notice here. The negativity, the talking behind people's backs the making up of stories, it's all just way too much for me to deal with. Life edit #1: get a new job that I can actually enjoy,our church home just isn't really a home and hasn't been for a while we just don't belong Life edit #2: find a new church, I've become a very negative person feeling like I'm stuck in a hole when really all I need to do is climb out Life edit #3 stop the negativity, in my long hours at work I haven't had time to eat much less pray regularly and spend time with God life edit #4 make time to spend with God (this includes finding a job with better hours 8-5 would be wonderful). I've spent so much time dwelling on the negative things I forget I have a lot to be thankful for and I should spend time doing things that make me happy life edit #5 spend time doing things that make me smile. as I stated above my wardrobe is complacent and I have begun to really not care what I look like life edit #6 take care in picking out clothing and doing hair and make up do the little things to pamper myself. I have not given my husband enough attention other than to cry on his shoulder because I hate where my life is right now life edit #7 lavish my husband with positive attention and affection. I feel complacent in life and want to continually move forward life edit #8 take action, I have forgotten how to smile and I hate that life edit #9 SMILE ALWAYS. finally I have neglected my home keeping responsibilities choosing to pity myself that I have no time to myself life edit #10 do not shirk home care responsibilities.

Some changes are coming be on the look out the blog will change appearances as I edit my life.

fair warning this post is full of random thoughts and musings from my head.

1. I am both excited about and dreading this weekend I am going to Dallas for Summit and although it's exciting at the same time i'm really nervous it will not be a good trip.

2. Church still isn't what I hoped it would be and I feel stuck there.

3. we are so close to paying off my stupid car that I can taste it.

4. I hate living in an apartment

5. I'm so ready to be a homeowner but this process is really long

6. I love the fall and it is nearly here

7. Christmas shopping has begun and I'm excited to report I have 6 gifts bought already

8. I am so ready for a true vacation it's just not even funny.

Anyway I told you complete randomness and no sense but these are all the thoughts floating around in my head.

sucky schedule, grocery shopping, and celebrating 20 years

Well this weekend was a bit of a blur because I worked then Jeremy and I grocery shopped for 2 hours. That's right 2 hours it was horrifyingly busy, and of course OCD me I had to calculate everything. I started by writing down all of our meals for the rest of the month of September and then calculating all of the ingredients, then calculating our budget. Then we hit the grocery store he thinks I'm the biggest nerd ever because I take my notebook and calculator to the grocery store so I can stay on budget. Yes I know I am a big nerd but hey I didn't go over budget so call me a nerd if you want.
Sunday was Jeremy's parents 20th anniversary at church and we had dinner after service and watched a touching video that Jeremy and I were conveniently left out of. Oh well it's not our church it's theirs. We are looking for a new one.
After church we spent the day visiting with Jeremy's Aunt and Uncle from Texas it was a very nice afternoon and we enjoyed just visiting with them.

Now the work week has begun and it's a crazy week with a crappy schedule I hope I get through it with at least 80% of my sanity intact.
