My thoughts about life
This is my first blog entry. I decided to try entering my thoughts on an online journal. I guess my first entry should be on how I reached this decision. I saw in the latest (well a couple of weeks ago) contests letter a piece about blogging. I checked out the blogs portion of the site and I was impressed. So many people sharing the intimate details of their lifes. I want to do my part.

This may not be the best blog entry, I know. But, I want to learn how to express myself better. I also want more people to get to know me on the site.

Today I plan on watching college football and reading during the commercials with the mute button on :). I may check some more of my e-mails and read some more online stories and try and comment on them. I try reviewing everything i read. I admit sometimes I read something and dont review it. Other times I am afraid I write a pretty crappy review. But noone has commented so far.

Well I will go for now.

I received a call from the medical facility yesterday.

My blood was normal. I do NOT have Diabetes!

I am so glad! So Grateful!

However, my plans for my life; more exercise, more nutrition less crap in my diet aren't going to alter.

I still want to lose weight, feel healthier etc,etc,etc.

Yes, to be honest I am also doing this because I realize that next year I could very well receive a negative report if I keep eating, living, etc like I have done in the past.

But, I'm not making these lifestyle changes to avoid any negative report. I am doing them because I want to be better.

I found that I lost 3 pounds last week. That's a good thing. It's progress. I also had my blood drawn for the Diabetes test last Friday.

I would rather not have Diabetes at all. Granted the lifestyle changes I want to implement will have absolutely nothing to do with the medical community's diagnosis of me. I will continue to strive to eat right, exercise more consistently, etc, etc regardless of their diagnosis. But still I would rather NOT receive a bad diagnosis because I simply don't want to deal with the medical community's interference. Nor do I want additional reasons to worry.

I don't want to get that little rat in my mind started.

Had a bad day yesterday.

I was angry at God.. .at my body... at my family for my health problems.

I had a fight with my girlfriend. Well, it was more of a discussion but still... see... years ago she had pictures of her with another guy on her instagram page. They were looking all cutesy... and they even kissed once. A whole bunch of people swear up and down that this was true love, they were a couple... he was her boyfriend and so on and so forth. She tells me that was all something he and they made up together and she never had those feelngs towards him. This happened all before we met. I believed her then. I do now. But still, there's a lot of negativity and suspicion in me and all that stuff just came out yesterday.

I'm over that now. We're good. She understands the problems I deal with. I understand that those events on Instagram happened years ago and have no bearing with our current situation.

As for my health... i've been looking at some of the nutritional pages for some of the restaurants I go to and was horrified at how sodium-filled everything is. I've been eating mine fields of sodium without even realizing it. So, in effect, I've brought my health problems on myself so I have no call to get mad at God or my body. Getting angry at this world that poisons everything it touches... that's another issue.

So, I'm in a better place now with myself, God and my family.

Let's try again. My first attempt wasn't saved correctly.

I just received a phone call about my glucose levels. They want me to come in and get tested for Diabetes. Diabetes. Yech… I;ve always been scared of that word. Sounds very nasty. And icky.

But, I am going to work even harder to lose weight. I'm going to continue to jam out to music at work, dance and sing and all that fun stuff.

Going to spend time with my family, my Heavenly Father and my girlfriend.

Between all of this... I will beat this.

I know I will

Day 2 of my wrestling with crud. Actually it's more like day 5 since I came down with this crap on Saturday. The hardest thing about spending all day coughing and sneezing at work? The unspoken glares of all your co-workers. I get it. I do. I hate it when someone comes in to work and does that crap if I am feeling fine. But what choice do they have? What choice do I have? The work needs to get done and most companies, mine included, have really crappy sick day policies.

Since I am the new guy I get 10 days off with pay...sounds nice on the surface but those 10 are the only ones I get including anytime I would have to take off for sickness. It's what everyone gets though my co-workers get more time than me since they've been here longer. But who wants to take their precious vacation time for sickness? I don't. Even if you are willing to do so you can't stay out all week. You don't have enough days. Junk like this just doesn't go away overnight as much as people might wish it would.

Personally, I am feeling better. I am coughing less, sneezing less but I am still coughing. God I hate this crud. I really hope I can get this out of my system soon

I am, yet again, making an attempt to renew my blog. I see it has been more than a year since I last wrote on here. Why do I not write a blog? Three reasons... 1) lack of time.. 2) nobody will read and 3) closely related to 2... nobody would care.

But I read an article that convinced me to give it the old College Try (so to speak) so here it goes...

I am at work, right now, with a runny nose and a cough that comes out every minute or so. It is truly a horrible way to work. I would stay home if I could but I simply have too much work to do and not enough days off to take one.

It started Saturday afternoon. My head felt light. I suddenly ran out of energy. I felt like I couldn't breath. I realized what was happening immediately, my yearly cold, sinus infection or whatever. I knew I had two choices... break up this junk with Mucinex which would mean days of coughing, sneezing and runny noses or just leave it lodged inside me. Learning from my share of bad experiences with option 2; to whit... developing strep throat... bronchitis... weeks of illness... etc... I chose option 1.

So here I am in the midst of coughing, sneezing and nose running this junk out of me. So much fun. I mean beside the loss of energy, the constant coughing, sneezing and nose running what's really fun about these colds is how either everything you eat tastes like nothing or tastes like snot.

Well that's it for today. I should be better and stronger tomorrow. Thanks for reading

I know I need to Blog. I should. I will. One day. I can't do it today though. It's not that I don't have anything to say. It's more like I don't know how to say it.

I sit at my desk at work listening to 'The Warrior is a Child' by Twila Paris tears coming to my eyes because the song speaks to me. I feel a deep sadness. I sigh as I write these words.

I wish I could say more. But I don't have time and again I don't know how.

Ah the impossible! How good does it feel when your supervisor after piling umpteen impossible, cannot be done in the time alloted, projects on your desk comes up with yet another one?

This is what happened this morning just when I came in the door. Not a good morning... not a how was your weekend but a 'William we need to talk about California E911' as if I didn't already have to deal with Year-End Closing. (IN Accountese... Year-End Closing is the balance every account to 110% perfection or face the Firing Squad) As if I didn't have to deal with the NORMAL California Return (That lovely monster that takes 4 days to do in of itself) this month.... as if I won't have 4 or 5 projects that will be assigned to my desk because we are 3 people short... as if I didn't have 4 or 5 other projects assigned to MY desk that will probably take 1 - 2 days in of themselves as if I didn't have my NORMAL schedule which on a normal month I can barely do within the time alloted... but add something I've never done before to the pile... Why the heck not?????

And in addition to all that I received a lovely phone call from the State of Arkansas stating that in order to receive credit for returned Tax Stamps we need to enter on the online return in addition to the Signed by the Manager copies we send them anyway. Of course their online return has codes for the appropriate brands which apparently are a state secret since I nor anyone else knows what they are.....

Another starting of the month in the Tax Department......

Who Hoo!!!!!!!

I've noticed that there are a lot of angry people running around. I can think of two instances today. On my way in to Golden Corral a black woman was leaving cussing a wind-storm at someone, I couldn't tell if she was on the phone or cussing out someone in Golden Corral or just cussing someone in general but she was very ticked.

On my way home... I was driving down Lebanon Rd at 45 which is the speed limit and the guy behind me kept gesturing for me to go faster. He was quite irate about it.

Those are just two examples. The diatribe's I read on facebook from all political persuasions and religious beliefs are just another example. There are people who get angry at other's because they don't believe a certain way... or they believe a certain way... or they vote for a particular person or they don't vote for a particular person... I can go on and on.

Don't get me wrong. I am no different. I found myself getting angry at a black couple because they happened to be sitting in my favorite seat, in Golden Corral, by the window. I was thinking 'how dare you sit in my seat!.' But of course they couldn't have known it was my seat. They got there before me and the seat was empty. But my anger was still there, a raging beast inside of me that didn't listen to my reasoned arguments. I also get angry at people who cut me off in traffic... who get in line before me at a restaurant... who take too long at the buffet bar... who cut in front of me at the gym... the list goes on and on. Yes, I also participated in some very angry discussions on a forum, that has been disbanded where I used to get mad at anyone who didn't share my views on the Bible, God, Marriage, Politics, etc, etc, etc.

Why are we so angry? What is the reason? Are we so set in our ways, whatever they may be, that we cannot comprehend that someone might think, feel or believe, otherwise? Are we that egotistical? Or is there something more then that? Are we frustrated, deep inside, that life, beliefs, values, etc, is not going the way we think it should?

For example... is the Liberal frustrated that people don't accept man-made Climate Change, Evolution, Same-sex Marriage, Obama's greatness, etc, etc, etc because he/she says we all should?

Is the Conservative frustrated that people don't deny man-made Climate Change, Evolution, Same-sex marriage, Obama's greatness etc, etc, etc because he/she says we all should?

It is not my attention to lump everyone into the same category here... so please don't anyone get angry at me.... :)

I don't know the answer in society or in myself. I think the answer comes down to forgiveness. Are we capable of forgiving others because they believe differently, think differently, feel differently or act differently then the way we think they should? Can we take that leap? This is not speaking of condoning beliefs, thoughts, actions, feelings, etc that we believe are wrong. This is forgiving those who participate in such things. Can we take that step? Can we forgive those who are different than we are for the crime of being different?

Can I?

I don't know. But I don't think our nation, society, etc has much of a chance if we cannot.
