Take all of your so called problems Better put them in quotations

Bits and Pieces:

-Thought you all would like to see a picture of the folks I spent my blog-free days (and campaign filled days) with:

-And the campaign mascot:

-The Mocs had an exciting basketball game Saturday night. We played UTK. The Mocs played well, but lost in the end:

-Scott and I put our tree up:

-My Momma surprised my Dad with a new puppy for his birthday:

-I have been doing OK (I would give myself a C) getting up and doing my yoga. It is much easier to get up and do something you HAVE to do as opposed to getting up to do something you NEED to do.

-I have been eating much better, much slower and much more consciously! I definitely feel better when I eat better.

-I have started taking my Prozac again. I did a lot of thinking and re-thinking this weekend. I am very caught up in the future and what taking Prozac now will mean for my future. I finally came to the decision that if I do not enjoy today than the future is not much good to me. For those of you who have been reading my blog for a while you know that this is an ongoing conversation I have with myself as I go on and off this drug...rationalizing why each time. I guess that is my journey for now and as long as I continue to keep my thought process open and fluid I can walk with my head held high.

-Let's care...I need help. My skin has gotten SO sensitive that anything I put on it STINGS...I started to put on some heavier moisture creams and now I am breaking out! Any ideas out there?

Take Care

Have no fear for giving in
Have no fear for getting older
You better know that in the end its better to say to much
Than to never to say what you need to say again
Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open
Say what you need to say

In a New York Minute Everything can change

NEW YORK PICTURE (highlights)....

We used this one for our Christmas card...It is inside Radio City Music Hall after The Christmas Show...

The Christmas Show was the only show we saw:

Do you recognize this place...think BIG salad...

Yes, this is the outside of Monk's Diner from Seinfeld. We had lunch there one day and it was pretty good.

Our hotel, The Novotel, at 52 and Broadway...great location good hotel!
We had A LOT of great food, my favorite dinner was: Funny story...We gt so much food at Carmine's and it was so good we decided to take it back to the hotel and put it in the mini bar. So, we look the drinks out and stored the food. We ate it right before we caught our flight out of town (it was almost as good two days later cold!). We went to check out and the guy at the desk said that he had a charge for 9 drinks out of the mini bar. Apparently there is a sensor on the mini bar and when we took the drinks out to store the food it recorded them as purchased...we quickly explained and the hotel staff was very nice!

Can you tell, from this picture, where else we went... see Lady Liberty In honor of my Grandfather Scott had a Manhattan (rocks, not up) in Manhattan at Gallagher's, which was next to our hotelOur final stop was:
Rockefeller Center to see my man Matt.

Ironically, my favorite picture of the trip Scott took out the window of the plane as we left the city:
We are lucky ducks!

I pulled my coat around my shoulders
And took a walk down through the park
The leaves were falling around me

I thought, "hey, I can leave, I can leave." Oh, but now I know that I was wrong, 'cause I missed you.

We had a quite weekend.
Went to watch the Moc's basketball team win Saturday night:

Last night, in our effort to eat better, Scott and I went to Greenlife. It is a cool natural foods grocery store in town that just relocated to a bigger building. They now provide eat in service including soup, salad, sandwiches and brick oven pizzas!

Otherwise I did the usual weekend catching up kinda things.
We did keep my parents dog Percy. He is HUGE and a lot of fun for Kozmo. He got a deep cut in the pad of his paw that had to be stapled together so Mom did not want to send him to the usual dog sitter. We were glad to have was Koz:

As you might recall, Scott left his camera on the plane on our last trip. He is fond of taking areal shots. These are the first new shots I have posted in a while...we had reverted back to the film world. We got a new camera for our Thanksgiving trip and lots of good pics in PA and NYC which I plan to post soon...I am still sorting them.

I did not make any head way on my fitness program, except to come up with a plan. I got used to getting up early while working on the campaign and I am going to use that to my advantage. I plan on getting up every morning and doing this 30 minute yoga DVD:

My body is SO out of the habit of doing anything, other than sitting in a chair, that I think that this will be a good starting point, especially since this routine is heavy on the core work. My plan is to stick with this until the end of the year, hoping that I will be much more flexible and strong, and then come up with a fitness plan.

That's all for now...

Take Care

Some of us hover when we weep for the other who was
dying since the day they were born.
Well, well, this is not that;
I think that I'm throwing, but I'm thrown.
