Georgia on my Mind

Heaven help me, I can't stop thinking about my trip coming up next week. Spending time with my longest lifetime friend, chilling out with no kids, driving on my own--jamming to my music. Yeah, I'm a wee bit excited.

Georgia has been on my mind a lot lately. I miss my hometown terribly. Not just my hometown, but my family, and the way of life. I come back to Ohio after being down home, and I find that for the most part, I'm more relaxed. Things move a little slower down home--- not in a bad way, but because going home for me is a vacation, there aren't the pressures of every day life for me down there. But beyond that, there's a different attitude--- people give you time to notice that the light has turned green before they honk at you. People stop and chit chat in the grocery aisles without others giving them the finger. It's not a simpler attitude, per se--- just a more patient one, perhaps. Not that there aren't impatient attitudes and fast paced people, but the overall feel of life down home is more relaxed and slower. I miss that. I'm such a fast paced person, sometimes I need to be slowed down a little.

Speaking of me being fast paced----I love coffee. Mindy Mae, I have fallen to the dark side of caffeine. I love coffee. Can I say it again? I love coffee. I LOVE COFFEE!!! I've gotten accustomed to starting my day with a cup of coffee at work. Now I start it with a cup at home--- but I use light coffee--- less caffeine. But still. It makes me sooooo much more productive. I'd hate to see me on Speed. Might be scary, really. Would be scary, really. But think of the weight I'd lose.... nah.

Check out my sidebar. I've put it out there for everyone to see--- my physical health, spiritual, mental, emotional--- it's all going to be updated weekly for physical, daily for the others. If you have any interest, great. If not, don't read! :):)

I'm starting the Atkins plan. Well, I'm not doing the induction phase, not completely. I'm modifying it a bit for my blood sugar levels. Which, if they drop too low, I get mean. And no one wants that, right???

Off to sleep. I think.

Love the south. People are way more laid back down there. Much more easygoing than the uptight midwest! hehe

OMGosh... Doug had me eat some chocolate covered express beans one time and I thought I was going to die.

Hyper doesn't even come close... I would LOVE to see you eat those... lol
