Discovering Donna

Better yet, get inspired……

Posted in 101,109 in 2009,changes,List,List of changes,My Life by Donna on February 18, 2009

I haven’t felt like posting or reading or doing much truth be told for about a week now.  I somehow got a miserable cold that kept me in bed most of the time and am starting to feel human again.  Well yesterday I started feeling better.  Today, much better.  I have managed to keep on trucking, looking for a job though.  I submitted my resume to several places and got a hit today from Craig’s list!  It’s for an electrical office and I’m not going to complain.  It’s right down the street and that’s a good sign.  The pay is pretty decent.  And I can pick up things like THAT so I don’t think it will be an issue.  Ya know!?  I have an interview today and I have a good feeling about it.  The owner has a 4 year old dog that is always in the office so how can that be bad?  I don’t think that it can.

It’s not in insurance, which, I don’t know if I’m going to complain or not.  Insurance jobs are hard to get around here.  I’ve wanted out of insurance to do other stuff and maybe this is that way.  Who knows!?

But anyways.  Hey while you are at it and you’re here, if you look at my 101 you’ll see some Major and I do mean major changes!  You’ll see that the second list is now gone and some from that list have made it to the 101 list.  You know why?  Another spurt of creativity.  I decided that this may be a short term bucket list, but I wanted a long term bucket list.  So I made one.  I don’t have it up anywhere, I’ve only taken a few things from my 101 and my 109 and put them on it.  This is a whole other thing.

Not sure where the inspiration came from, but I’m taking it and running.  Today is going to be a great day!

Now don’t forget to leave a comment and let me know you were here!  I love comments!


Is It Really 2009?

Posted in 101,Ankle,Holidays,List,NaBlPoMO by Donna on January 1, 2009

I guess so.  Wow, it’s another new year already.

And I’ve got big plans!  I’m on the blogroll for NaBloPoMo for this month.  I’m gonna try it again and see if I can post each day.  I’ve got the list for the 109 in 2009 up too and I’m going to start working on that.  Of course a lot of those on the list are parts of my 101 lists but you know, that’s okay.  I’m knocking out 3 things at once and that’s good.

This hard cast comes off tomorrow.  And in case you haven’t seen it, let me just share it with you for a minute.The castDid you think I was kidding when I called it Post it Yellow?? LOL  It’s been on my nerves for the past week, I think I’m just anxious to have it off.  And tomorrow is THE DAY!  Yep, that’s right and I can’t wait.  In less than 24 hours, I should will be in a walking cast.  Finally the ability to walk, go up stairs, play Guitar Hero and cook will be in my hands again!  Ohhh and work, let’s not forget work.  I’ve been off for almost a month now and it’s driving me batty to be in this house, this apartment 75% of the time.

Not to mention, I realllyyyyyyy want to shave my left leg.  Girls there is nothing worse in this world than needing to shave your leg and not being able to because of a cast.  YIKES!

But here we are.  In a New Year.  And I’ve got some things to accomplish.  Do you want to see all three of my fabulous lists??  Check up at the top.  I’m ambitious I know.  I’m just eager not only to figure out what this life is supposed to be about but explore things about me that I haven’t been able to.

Rach said when she turned 33 she thought it was going to be a great year.  Well I think I’m going to say the same thing.  33 is going to be a fabulous year!!!!  And the 14 days leading up to it too!!!  LOL

What about you?

Wabbly Wednesday

Posted in List,Pet Peeves by Donna on July 23, 2008

So I’m having a day today. It’s taking an effort to get through the day. Why I’m not sure. I had a great night last night. Lisa, my friend I met on myspace, text messaged me and we went walking last night. You know, I started to turn her down but then I remembered one of my “things”. I’m not to turn down an invite unless I have a genuine conflict. Sitting my rear watching tv in the air conditioning is NOT a genuine conflict. So I went, and had fun. This morning was an effort. I dislike men who think that just because I have boobs, they can talk down to me. I had that lovely experience with a company rep. Hey buddy, get used to it, down here it’s a female dominated service. So the boss called, talked to him and everything is fine, which makes me that much more p.o.’d. I hate when men do that.

So I’m trying to organize things and get ready for our trip, and trying to get my brain in gear and a right “mind set” for my project. I’m not looking at it like I should. Sure I have all the recipes picked out but you know, I need to plan this stuff, well some of it. I need to get more organized. Maybe I should change one of those to “get organized”. I really want to change two of them because I’m hoping that I won’t be on the UltraglycemX for the entire time I’ve got to do this list. What are the rules to that I wonder? Guess I’ll go look and see. Oh well.

Two weeks until we go see Momma! I’m excited. I’m really excited about the possibility of going and getting this fine looking dress for the wedding to wear with these fine shoes I got this weekend! We’ll see though.

Oh well~ off for now.
