So, now that I've got the dramatics of the day out of the way... I'm back. Today is my first official day back to work.
Something else lovely happend right before my life was put on hold for an entire week. We got a new grill. It's not a super expensive one but pretty darn nice if you ask me. We grilled out steaks the day before my surg and I must say they were heaven. I'm excited to grill all kinds of other fun stuff this summer. John and I are already planning new patio furniture and stuff to make the out doors at our house a little more homey.
Also, finished my Harry Potter book. The movie came out over the weekend and I've not yet been to see it. Soon though. The book comes out this weekend. The last book. I'm going to get it and eventually read it but I'm kinda not looking forward to it. I just have a feeling that JK is taking the story to a place I don't want it to go. I was heart sick in reading the Half Blood Prince. I kinda had guessed who the half blood prince was but the ending. Oh the ending. I was just sick. I've started something else on purpose. I'm sure I'll save it till maybe fall. Maybe.
Getting ramped up (at least in my mind) for things I wanna get done soon:
-Clean out, paint & set up new sewing/yoga room
-Buy and install new carpet tiles for living room
-Rearrange bedroom and add headboard
-Sew some really cute summery tops
Oh and the joy of my entire week (well last week)was the fact that I got an entire day to just clean. Most people would just call me a sick person because I actually enjoyed it but man did I! I made a list and set to work. I cleaned every room (except for the sewing room). Last night once I finally got over all the dizziness of my pain pills, I picked up what happend while I was down and it still looks fab. I put up our new shower curtain too. Funny how small totally ridiculous things can make you so happy.
Things that are making me happy today:
-An unexpected present from a friend
-New babies (Name Brilynn Rose 7 lbs 11 oz)
-Citron Green (as in the color. Not sure)
-Half a Choc Chip Cookie (The first actual real food besides pasta I've been able to eat since seven days ago!!!)
Hope you all are doing well...

After leaving the memorial we headed out the most scary car ride of my life perhaps. Ben, who is near sided and has no peripheral vision what so ever proceeded to drive from the Liberty Mem down town thru all the construction and back to Sam's with absolutely no knowledge of where he was or where he was going. The best part was that while he's driving 70 miles an hour on ever road available, John is in the front seat trying to navigate. At one point I looked up and he truly was about to hyperventilate. I've never been so happy to get out of a car in my entire life. Ended up spending the entire day with them. Sunday we were going to go to church but then we were expected back to Bev's around noon for a cook out. So we stayed home and did house things that needed doing. Mowing, cleaning, dishes. The BBQ was actually nice. We love Sharon's girls. They are way funny teenagers and they are comfortable enough around us to be silly. So we ate till we almost exploded, watched Harry Potter movies and laughed about teachers, boys and stupid cheerleaders. Left early enough to get some laundry done and so on yesterday too. Overall it wasn't a bad weekend, just filled differently than we would normally choose. This week I'm having my wisdom teeth out on Thursday. Yesterday and today they're just aching like crazy which is making me dread the surgery a little less. I just want them OUT!!!
What else? Oh! Got some cute things handed down from Bev this weekend. She gave me a little wicker three piece patio set. Gonna paint that something cute and make some cushions. Will look cute with the new grill we are about to purchase. I'm excited for a grill I can just flip the switch and cook. Love that! Also, so gave me a giant jewelry box, which I SO needed. I've got all this stray stuff floating all over the house. This box is really cool. It's got all kinda of little compartments and such. AND it's got yellow funky lining in the drawers. So fun. I'm also going to paint this because I'm not super fond of the color of the wood. Along with the box she gave me some of her vintage jewels. My favorite are the handmade wooded black w. wood grain showing through earrings and matching brooch. Haven't taken the earrings off since Saturday. Well to shower but still. Also, picked out some rather cute paint colors for the house. I really love them. You know when you have this color in your head but can't find it anywhere? I had that till I went to Lowes yesterday. I found three, well four, shades of just the right shades of stuff I wanted. I shocked even myself. Can't wait to get started. I'm going to do the "guest room" first. John's given up rights to the room because really he doesn't use it all that much and I'm desperate for a sewing/yoga/ reading area. It's the perfect size and I'm THRILLED to have the space. I'm just so excited to get it all set up and looking cute. All that will have to wait till the teeth are out and not hurting though.

The participant's goal is to get a score of 100 out of 100. The objective of the program is for the participant to get complete about 100 possible incompletions in their life. Incompletions are those physical, emotional or mental items, which are in some way not resolved in the current moment. Incompletions of any kind drain energy. That is, they require energy to live with, given it takes work to keep us whole when there is something in the space. To have full integrity (like a complete circle) is normal; the program gives one a way to get there in a natural way.
The Clean Sweep Program promises three things will happen as you increase your scores:
You will have more energy and vitality. There is nothing like a clean space, full communication and self-responsibility to give one more energy.
You will increase your scores just by being in the program. Once you go over the list of the 100 items, you'll find yourself handling some of these without even trying. Others take more work, but you will complete your way toward the score of 100.
You will gain perspective on who you are, where you are and where you are going. When incompletions are handled, one can see what is and has been around them, including one's self. You will see situations as they really are, you'll discern what is going on with you and around you and you'll react less and choose more in your daily life. This higher perspective is essential in the process of designing one's life and it starts with the Clean Sweep Program.
Sounds interesting right? I did mine and got a TERRIBLE score but at least I know the areas I need to work on. Try this out if you want. It doesn't take long to completed the checklist and I found it to be really inspiring.
