Day 81:

Today I am…  Circling the wagons.  Yes, as today is the last day of the month, I have finally paid the last bill of the month as well.  So it begins again tomorrow, yes, a continuing circle.  It’s all good though, all good, that just means I am in it.  I have employment that affords me to be able to pay up each month, have a roof over my head, food in my tummy and then some to save.  God is so good, I always remember that.

I am so thankful, for Him.  I feel awesome.  Sure I have my times when I don’t feel this awesome, we all do, I may hem and haw at the time I have to go to work, but never to the point that I wish I didn’t, because there is always someone who has it worse off, who wish they had a job.  I am thankful for what I do have.  I may cry at times for feeling a bit lonely, but I know it passes.  God has such good things in store for me, and that includes a mate, I just have to make sure I am at a place within myself to receive it.  A work in progress.

Speaking of, I have had two wonderful days off, and now it is time to head back to work tonight.  Funny, just looked at my work email, and they are having pajama weekend starting today until Sunday, means you can wear your pj’s to work, lol.  I don’t think I will be participating in it this time, seeing as my pajama’s are pretty worn, perhaps when I get some cooler ones, as like all things, it’s a work in progress.  Well reader’s time is mozying along, so I better get with it.  Enjoy your weekend.

Today I am…  Circling the wagons.

Damn Good indeed!

So today I tried a new place to eat.  Torchy’s Taco.


Torchy's Taco's

I have heard about their damn good tacos, well today was a perfect time to try it out.  The verdict is in…  And they are Damn Good indeed.  I will say that their tacos are too, too, too delicious.  I had the chicken fajita taco and it was knock out awesome.


Chicken fajita tacoI give this place a thumbs up and I will be taking my mom to this place.  This will definitely become a place I frequent more.  If your ever in Austin, I really suggest Torchy’s Tacos.  You won’t be disappointed.

Day 80:

Today I am…  Taking in the arts.  Today was such a beautiful day, I decided to spend it downtown at the art museum.  I even rode the new metro rapid bus, I can say I just don’t feel it’s worth the 3 bucks you have to pay, but that is a story for another day.  It was a smooth ride, not many people going downtown on it, but coming back up town, well it was pretty full there.  I will ride it again, I say it’s an alright bus, just alright.  To be continued.

So went to the Blanton Museum, today was free admissions day, every Thursday is free, and since it was my day off I decided to hit it up.  Camera in hand these are a few of the photos I took, I will post more photos another day, but you have the pleasure of seeing a few here.

Day 78:

Today I am…  Fogged.  By that I mean that today Austin is enveloped in fog, looks like rain today as well, but hopefully that isn’t the case, and it will burn off and become at least sunny, but if not, that’s just how it will be.  I will be equipped with my big rainbow umbrella and my jacket with the hood, all will be well.  Work today, lol.  I seem to be making it alright, my first week has been pretty good, I am getting better and better at this, and I am soaking up more information.  Last night I found I had more energy and didn’t get tired really till around 8 pm, but once I got my break, I had some trail mix, and that gave me a nice burst of energy to power on till 11.  Now after that I was soo tired, and when I got home I didn’t get to bed till around 1 am.  I crashed, and I slept till 7 this morning.  I feel really good at the moment.  Time to get myself ready for the day at hand.  That time comes around quickly, but I have the next two days off.  Life is really, really good.

Today I am…  Fogged.

Day 77:

Today I am…  Finding out.  That is finding out how hard it is to stay awake from a 3 to 11 schedule.  Last night I did not get back to the apartment till midnight, because the taxi went to the wrong place, and it took it more time to finally get to where I was.  I got in, and ate, watched the rest of Trading Places, then crashed.  I woke up between 6 and 7.  But didn’t get up till 8 this morning.  It is now 10 am, I am having bacon, toast, and coffee, getting some vitamins in me as well and blogging this out.  I’ve already listened to Chip Ingram, and now about to do some Joyce Meyer’s before I get ready for the work day.

Oyvey!  I feel tired, but it takes some time to get used to this time frame, at least the body has to adjust.  Last night I was feeling like a beast, meaning that I was feeling really good, I was soaking it all up, and I was getting more and more right.  As I have said, I feel good here, and I know that I can be a sponge and soak up more and more information.  It felt incredible, my brain was firing on automatic at times, probably because I was exhausted but while I was going, I was getting these things right.  I know these things are so easy.  I start getting that drag around 8pm lol. so I am going to have to do something that will make me not so draggy by that time and have more energy as well.  It is trial and error for me, just have to tweak things here and there.

Today I am…  Finding out.

Day 76:

Today I am…  Waving goodbye.  Yes, mom and dad are on their way back to San Angelo.  We had a good breakfast and nice chatter this morning before they packed up the furniture, put in the back of the truck and now are heading back west.  A visit much too short, but one that was nice.  Like I have said, I will see my mom next month sometime, probably in another week or so.  So let the feel good feelings work their magic.

these hours are going to take some getting used to.  3 to 11, oyvey!  Then I have to call a taxi, because the bus I ride doesn’t come at that time, not much against taxi’s but truthfully, I wish the taxi people would just know where I am, put the input into their little gps thingies and pick me up.  Then get me home.  Home without all the fuss of paying two arms and a leg.  Yes, at least I am covered for all the week that I have to take the taxi home.  I won’t even go into how much money is spent, it’s life, it’s my life and well I am living it.  Next!

Thank God for mom’s and dad’s who still help out lol.  the fun part is that when they do come down, I get to treat them to really fun things, and new eats.  Can’t wait to see mom again, we shall try a new food place; which one, I do not know, perhaps Torchy’s Taco’s.  Stay tuned.

Today I am…  Waving goodbye.
