You are curious about the world around you, and you love to explore.
You liked to swim and climb trees as a kid... and probably still do!
You are confident and energetic. You are ready to take on the world.

|You Would Be a Good Spouse 30% of the Time|
Maybe you're just young, but at this point, your relationships are all about you.
If possible, take some time to be single and work on yourself. Learn how to be a good friend.
Once you can give and take in friendships, you'll be ready for a serious relationship.

LDL - 140
My dr. wants me to go on a low cholestrol diet and I am supposed to go back in January to get another blood test done but the nurse didn't tell me what a low cholestrol diet is so I am guessing it's a lot of vegetables, fruit, Soy, fish. I don't know if I will go back in January because I haven't really done anything to lower the cholestrol and I don't think that it's that bad anyway.
I really need to find another doctor's office because this one that I go to is not good at all and the staff is not nice at all. I mean I can understand if you're having a bad day but don't be rude to the patients becasue I for one am very tempted to find another dr.
Sorry for the ranting but I just needed to get this off my chest. I had a much better day after that. My mom and I went and got subway for lunch and then we went to Summer Winds Nursery to look for some flowers and we came back home and I watched two episodes of Supernatural and that was it. I will probably read some tonight or tomorrow. I have no idea what we are going to do tomorrow but we'll do something.

Three Bullets There once was a man who had nothing for his family to eat. He had an old rifle and three bullets. So, he decided that he would go out hunting and kill some wild game for dinner. As he went down the road, he saw a rabbit. He shot at the rabbit and missed it. The rabbit ran away. Then he saw a squirrel and fired a shot at the squirrel and missed it. The squirrel disappeared into a hole in a cottonwood tree. As he went further, he saw a large wild 'Tom' turkey in the tree, but he had only one bullet remaining. A voice spoke to him and said, 'Pray first, aim high and stay focused.' However, at the same time, he saw a deer which was a better kill. He brought the gun down and aimed at the deer. But, then he saw a rattlesnake between his legs about to bite him, so he naturally brought the gun down further to shoot the rattlesnake. Still, the voice said again to him, ''I said, 'Pray, Aim high and Stay focused.'' So, the man decided to listen to God's voice. He prayed, then aimed the gun high up in the tree and shot the wild turkey. The bullet passed thru the turkey and killed the deer. The handle fell off the gun and hit the snake in the head and killed it. And, when the gun had gone off, it knocked him into a pond. When he stood up to look around, he had fish in all his pockets, a dead deer and a turkey to eat for his family. The snake (Satan) was dead simply because the man listened to God. Moral of the story: Pray first before you do anything, aim and shoot high in your goals, and stay focused on God. Never let others discourage you concerning your past. The past is exactly that... 'the past.' Live every day one day at a time and remember that only God knows our future and that God will not put you through any more than you can bear. Do not look to man for your blessings, but look to the doors that only God has prepared in advance for you in your favor. Wait, be still and patient: keep God first and everything else will follow.A meal, however simple, is a moment of intersection. It is at once the most basic, the most fundamental, of our life's activities, maintaining the life of our bodies; shared with others it can be anoccasion of joy and communion, uniting people deeply.- Elise Boulding

1. You know how some people have addictions to smoking or gambling or drinking or whatever else? Well, I have an addiction to Supernatural. I mean I totally love this show and it is the most underrated TV show. I know you thought I was going to say spending or something else, huh? But, no my addiction is definitely to Supernatural. So if you haven't checked it out yet make sure to check it out. It comes on every Thursday on the CW which is channel 6 here in Phoenix and it comes on at 8PM.
2. I do spend a lot of money on books movies and Cd's. My parents tell me I could open a music store with all of the Cd's I have.
3. I love searching for different things on the Internet.
4. Next to Christmas my favorite holiday is Halloween. Why Halloween? because the next day is my birthday. I was actually supposed to be born on Halloween but I waited until Nov 1st.
5. I love going out and taking pictures of anything I can find.
6. I like trying to find bargains on books or movies or Cd's.
Well, there you have six random things about me.

I may not be the most eloquent person when typing and exressing my thoughs and I don't know if I'm even doing this right but I will do my best so here goes:
I decieded to focus on poverty in the USA because we are the most
advanced country and yet we still have thousands of Americans who are living below the poverty line and there are tons of thousands of americans who are homeless. I know there are a lot of homelesss people in big cities because I live in a big city and I see them where I work almost daily. A lot of these people do have mental problems but alot of them also have probably lost their jobs and they are having a hard time getting back on their feet. It is sad to think that we live in the most advanced country and yet we still have so many people living in Poverty. I am going to include a video from you tube that shows some statistics about poverty and on my other blog I will be posting some pictures of people in poverty. Here is a link to a video on you tube. http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=di-zjm5mmdE&NR=1. We do need the government to do something but you and I can make a difference in a variety of ways. The website that is hosting this has alot of good resources and ideas that you and I can do to help those living in Povery. Just go to http://blogactionday.org/ and start exploring what you and I can do.
I personally have to live with my parents because there would be absolutley no way that I could make it on my own and making only minimum wage it's hard to live on my own. I feel very blessed to have such wonderful parents that will let me live with them and pay rent because without them I truly believe that I would be living on the streets or working at least two jobs to make ends meat. There is a quote that I feel sums up everything I just said: "There for the grace of God goes I" I don't know who said it but I heard it somewhere and I love that quote.

The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can;and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things rightif I surrender to His Will;That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with HimForever in the next. Amen.

On the good side I got my TV today but I have to wait until November 1 st to get it hooked up since that is my birthday and it is the only birthday present that I am going to get from my parents which is totally cool with me. I don't want anything else really.
We took the dogs to get grooming this morning. Boy, they needed it too!! After waiting for four weeks or longer because the groomers were closed for a week and we want to keep them on the same schedule it was actually closer to a month and they are still up there. We are picking them up now YEAH!!!!!
We also went to famous footwear to find some shoes but I didn't find anything and neither did my mom which is weird for her because she can find shoes that fit almost every time. Not this time though. I have to get my shoes at SAS or at Anne's wide shoes and they are expensive but since I have had to deal with Plantar fascitis I am not taking the risk of it hurting again so that's why my shoes cost more than other people.
I am picking up the dogs now. Bye!!!
Thursday, October 2, 2008
Tomorrow morning my TV that I am going to get for my birthday is going to come. I will have to practice some self control and not beg my parents to let me have the TV sooner because that is all I am getting for my birthday which is November 1 st. So it will be a long wait but I can wait until my birthday I am going to have to.
Well, that's it for now. Goodnight
Footprints in the Sand
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one
set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?"
The Lord replied,
"The times when you have
seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you."

We were really slow and that isn't good because by this time of year the snowbirds come and
then it starts getting busy but it hasn't gotten busy yet. I hope that the snow birds do come and help boost our economy because if they don't come that means we don't get much hours and that's not good. All I can really do is Pray that it starts getting busy again.

Today was not a very good day at work. I had to deal with a nasty customer and it seemed that I couldn't find anything right away but it was definitely PMS. When that time of month comes for me it's very hard to concentrate and keep focused because I get very tired and cranky and I didn't get a lunch but thankfully my boss let me take an extra long break. :-(
This whole week I don't get a lunch but on Sat my boss is going to let me take two 15 minutes breaks. We are not very busy either because of the way the economy is right now and I haven't seen any snow birds here yet which is not good for our business. I hope business picks up soon because I don't like it being this slow and dead.
Well, that's it for tonight I hope tomorrow is a better day :-)
One more thing I forgot to mention I have been with Safeway for eleven years. My anniversary was in Sept but that was when I was over at word press. I can't believe that it has been eleven years I honestly didn't think I would be with Safeway for that long but I am. The benefits are good so that is what counts nowadays.
Okay that's it good night almost time for Dancing with the Stars.

I am writing this on my mom's laptop just so I can get used to it because I am seriously considering getting one of my own but I think I will get a 17 inch one instead of a 15 inch one. But I am going to use hers for awhile to see if I like it or not since it is a lot of money. But we'll see. For my birthday I am going to get a HD TV flat screen to put in my room and I can't wait.
Well, I better get off now so my mom can use her computer to play games.
