Food 4 Thought Friday ~ This week's questions:

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Breakfast What is most pressing on your mind right at this moment?

Lunch What age do you consider "OLD"?

Dinner When is your "I'll be happy when..." going to happen?

Midnight Snack What have you been craving lately?

Recipe of the Week (instead of your recipe for life what is it just for the week?)
♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
MY ANSWERS


Breakfast What is most pressing on your mind right at this moment? The fact that I have about 48 hours worth of stuff to do in only about 24!

Lunch What age do you consider "OLD"? I hear it's always 15 years older than you are, but with the big one coming up in a week or so, I am feeling like "that" number says I'm old, but I don't FEEL old!

Dinner When is your "I'll be happy when..." going to happen? I learned a long time ago, that life is a journey NOT a destination and I need to find my happiness in the here and now and not when "something" happens. There is always something to be happy about and life is wasted if we are always waiting for that "when" to come. It may NEVER come anyway! So CHOOSE to be happy NOW!

Midnight Snack What have you been craving lately?Twizzlers Chocolate Licorice! Mmmm


Recipe of the Week (instead of your recipe for life what is it just for the week?) God is bigger than we are and He see's the big picture. He will always take care of us and be there when we need Him. We just have to put our trust in Him.


♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥




And...here we go!

1. Life is very insane right now!

2. The airport is one of the best places to people watch EVER because there is such a diversity of people!

3. If I was going somewhere, the one thing I have to bring is my camera of course!

4. Winter will be back soon enough.

5. Next year, life is going to change a lot.

6. I went running today and I found a dime from Tyson!


7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to celebrating Taylor's 18th birthday with a party with friends and family, tomorrow my plans include a long run, trying to not go crazy with my long list of things to do...ugh! and Sunday, I want to hopefully have it all ready to go and be much calmer.

MY ANSWERS

Breakfast What three things would you save if your house were burning down? (family and pets are already safe) My journals and my boy's journals, ALL my millions of pictures and photo albums, my hard drive.

Lunch Are you planning or have already taken any vacations this summer? Explain. We went to Jackson Hole, and we are heading to Hawaii soon. My two boys are over there working (selling home security) and so we are going to join up with them and have some fun!

Dinner Do you still use a paper calendar or day planner or have gone electronic? I STILL have a paper day planner but I also use my iPhone to keep track of things since it sends me a sound when I NEED to remember which I don't do very well anymore~!

Midnight Snack What has stressed you out the most this week? Trying to find accomodations for our trip. I have checked at least 500 places to stay and not finding much available or what I want. I want to scream! I can't sit at the computer for that long at a time or I get a little ansy pantsy! This is taking hours a day!

Recipe of the Week (instead of your recipe for life what is it just for the week?) Focus on the most important task at hand and all others will fall into place or not need to be done.

3. That day, 23 years ago today, when my son Tyson was born, was one of the greatest days of my life!

4. Time is just flying by so fast this year.

Breakfast What are wishing was over?

Lunch How did you spend the 4th of July?

Dinner What surprised you this week?

Midnight Snack What has occupied a lot of your mind or time this week?

Recipe of the Week (instead of your recipe for life what is it just for the week?)
♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
MY ANSWERS


Breakfast What are wishing was over? My mom fell and broke her hip on Wednesday and I am wishing her healing and recovery were over. It's gonna be a long haul and I feel so bad for her.

Lunch How did you spend the 4th of July? We went to the cabin and went and saw the Bar J Wranglers perform. They are good friends with my FIL and husband and they always treat us MORE than nice. They try and pay them back for the medical services but are always way too generous. We missed Jackson Hole's fireworks because the others wanted to get back and watch Alpine's, but we were too late and missed those too. :( But the following Friday we saw some great ones at USU's Freedom Fire! On the way home from the cabin we stopped at Lava Hot Springs.












At USU Freedom Fire


Dinner What surprised you this week? I ran my first 5K since being injured at the Ogden Marathon and I had zero IT band problems. I was able to run the whole thing without stopping or any pain...well, IT band pain. There is ALWAYS pain in running! I got 2nd place in my age division. I got 1st last year, but this year I was just hoping to finish! I was surprised how well I did considering. It's a good run even with the gravel, hay bails you have to hurdle, and the 20 yard (or more!) SWAMP this year! Our shoes and legs were covered in mud! If we added a bike we would have had a tri-athlon! The best part was the pancake breakfast after! YUM!

Midnight Snack
What has occupied a lot of your mind or time this week? Planning our trip to Hawaii. All the stuff I have not accomplished. My mother. Lists and lists of my things to do.


Recipe of the Week (instead of your recipe for life what is it just for the week?) Enjoy the journey along the way and quit focusing on the outcome or the destination. There is so much to enjoy and it's easy to overlook it when so focused on the final outcome of things.
