Day 19: Something That Never Fails to Make Me Feel Better

Hi Friend! I have to make this quick because I have a killer headache today. It was migraine mode this morning which is why I am late getting this up.

There were two different ways I was thinking of answering this. One was a deeper way maybe in some ways more the transparent truth when it comes to truly feeling better. I will save that for another day though because I am not feeling well right now.

When I am feeling down or “meh” there are four different movies I watch. Not all in the same sitting of course but each one, in its own way, make me feel happy.

Mamma Mia

Hairspray Live

Grease Live

Julie&Julia

There you have it! Do you like any of these? If you want, link up your favorite movie or you go-to that makes you feel better “every time!”

Have a beautiful day! I loves you!

Day 15: Weird Things I Do When I Am Alone AND Other Blabbering!

I guess it would depend on your interpretation of weird. When I am alone I eat food I shouldn’t eat. Sometimes I even stuff myself until I am sick but I am working at NOT doing that anymore. So much of that depends on my mood and why I am alone and what is happening. I also watch Musicals: Hairspray, Mamma Mia and Grease and my favorite non-musical: Julie&Julia. I have seen them all many many times. I am currently watching the Live versions of Grease and Hairspray. 🙂 I guess that is mainly it. I don’t think neither is too weird. I think the eating one is an emotional problem more than a physical one and one I am currently working on stopping, mainly by trying to find healthier foods. 🙂 The movie issue has become a joke among my hubby and kids but sometimes I don’t take it as a joke and I feel like a freak. That is why I will start watching the movies WHEN they are away from me. So I like watching certain movies over and over again! Sue me! Just wait until The Shack comes out on video!! I’m VERY excited for that!

Yesterday was Good Friday and we went for supper at my parents’ place in Red Deer. My sister and her husband were there and my oldest son brought his girlfriend. We had fish and chips (I grew up having fish and chips on Good Friday as a Catholic). Since I am going through such a radical paradigm change, I am not sure about my thoughts any more about Good Friday. I know what it stands for still and I acknowledge it and Easter as very significant events in my faith. I just haven’t put the emotions into it yet. I’m still trying to grasp it. If feels like it needs to be so much for to me than just one weekend. I’m mulling it over. (Because that’s what I do as a radical over-thinker!)

I got up today after just over 5-hour sleep (I had a latte around 8:30 oops). I got tons done though! Kitchen done, supper in the crock pot, the salad made, back room cleaned (after our nice flood), and now laundry is going. I love cooking to podcasts now and I finally found a great one that I will binge listen to for a while. The Liturgists. I love them. I love their chemistry and the fact that as of the first three episodes…no bashing of other Christians. I don’t have a problem with people having different radical views and I will even listen to them (I know what is important to me now as far as my beliefs go) but I hate the bashing that goes on. So far so good. I have been listening to a few all week and maybe in a few days, I will share about the ones I have on my Google Play Music.

I guess I will end there. I wish it was nicer out so we can enjoy going outside but I guess we will enjoy being inside. Yummy stew for supper is perfect for the cool rainy/snowy weekend. Have a super duper blessed day Friends! I will see you again, tomorrow and hopefully my blog will be up sooner. 🙂

I loves you!!!
