Jesus, Joseph & Mary, that was the week from hell :( I’m not going to give it any more power by rehashing it. Suffice it to say, my immediate workplace is toxic. Not news.

The horoscope for this week is hilarious, given the sitch. I REALLY like Part II:

Your Week Ahead: Exasperated? Of course you are. Just look at what (and who) you’ve got to deal with. It’s enough to test anyone’s patience. Why are you in such a compromising position? Perhaps because you need to look more closely at your own reluctance to compromise. You have very high standards. You hate having to settle for anything less than the best. There is nothing wrong with this – apart from the fact that, sometimes, it prevents you from being realistic. Certain people won’t ever change. Certain situations will change, but not in a hurry. This week, make the most of whatever you can’t yet alter.

Your Week Ahead – Love Focus: Take your shoes off. You don’t need them now. Symbolically speaking, that is. It is safe for you to ‘travel barefoot’. You don’t need protection or elevation, you can feel free to walk through the world in a simple state of sincerity and can expect to be respected and protected. Indeed, you will do better approaching all your problems in this way than wading into them wearing armour. It is not force that’s needed; it is the opposite. Sensitivity. Show some. Share some. Even if you aren’t getting any back from elsewhere, it doesn’t matter. Somehow, your kindness will win whatever is needed.

On a happier note, today was XANADU!! I really had to get over that they were taking the absolute piss out of my favourite movie .. but once I did, I giggled my way through the rest of the show. Lots of music, colour and rollerskates. Awesome!

Three good stuffs:
1. I’ll be picking up my car this week, all things going according to plan. Yay! I am so grateful to have use of my sister’s old car, but I’ll be so pleased to have my striped baby back.
2. Next weekend is the past life regression workshop!
3. I feel some awesome money vibes happening .. abundance, abundance, abundance!

Ok, in conclusion, is it wrong to enjoy the Austin Powers’ movies so much? I swear, my sense of humour is usually SO far from this. Weird!

quick whinge

i’ve had an ear ache for the past couple of days – the pain being sporadic (a burst maybe once every minute?) and it seems to be actually in the “meat” of my ear, not in my ear canal.

I think it’s stress related though, because I also have neuralgia on my scalp :(

Not happy, Jan.

blue moon

so everyone seems to be talking about the “supermoon” due this evening.

Clicky to read NASA article

On March 19th, a full Moon of rare size and beauty will rise in the east at sunset. It’s a super “perigee moon”–the biggest in almost 20 years.

“The last full Moon so big and close to Earth occurred in March of 1993,” says Geoff Chester of the US Naval Observatory in Washington DC. “I’d say it’s worth a look.”

It doesn’t look particularly big to me, but man, is it lighting up the sky! It was the same last night, too. It looks like dawn when it is usually black. The biggest moon I’ve ever seen was just a couple of weeks ago, though. Massive, almost orange orb hanging very low in the sky .. it was amazing!

And speaking of the dawn, I really should be in bed. I completed the ‘Relay for Life’ last night – we had the 12-1.30am shift and so I slept in this morning, thus the lack of sleepiness at this moment. I’ve got to get out of the house early tomorrow morning, so as I said – REALLY should get to bed!

lucky day

Like my friend said today – we are truly, very lucky. I’ve been extremely attuned to the disaster in Japan as I have four very good friends over there at the moment. Three of them have decided just last night, to come home (thank goodness). All of it has just brought home the fact that your world can turn upside down on a dime .. and I feel very lucky to have my family and myself safe and well.

Today was lucky for me in lots of little ways. My neighbour brought my bin in for me, my lawns were mowed and my parcel was delivered exactly when my lawns were being mowed, so they signed for the package (meaning no waiting to get down to the post office!).

It’s the little things :)

oh! and look who i found on my front porch this morning:

it’s 3am

I’m not going to let the updating get away from me!

It’s a long weekend, in Melbourne Town. Labour Day Monday .. plus I have an RDO Tuesday, so it’s extry wonderful!

I’ve not done much of anything, which has been fantastic considering the plans I had were full-on. Plans today shifted and postponed which meant I got to r-e-l-a-x. I read some .. watched some teev .. played some ‘words with friends’ (I’m addicted!), napped some, did some food shopping and cleaned some! Productive, in a non-productive way.

Aww, look .. Pippa kitty loves to sit at my feet like a pup :)

WHERE does the time go? I’ve been slack. Very slack. In the updating arena.
…. but not slack in the gym arena! :) Another boxing class last night – BRUTAL, but I LOVE it. Love.

I had another weigh in tonight – it’s been 3 weeks since the last one. Only 2.1kgs lost this time, but all up it’s 7.2 in 5 weeks! I am happy with that. I can notice the loss which is extra motivating.

I’ve also been slack with the job-applying .. and considering how miserable I am at my current job, it defies logic. I have 3 to do before week’s end .. and I will make sure they actually do get done.

It’s been a fairly hectic time of late. I’ve had sick kitties, a wedding, wedding preparations (my sister’s), going to the movies (I am Number Four – it was BRILL!), fundraising for the upcoming ‘Relay for Life’ in which I am participating, FINALLY getting around to watching the 6th season of ‘The L Word’, spending a LOT of time with my beautiful nieces .. and more!

I’m watching ‘Nurse Jackie’ at the mo’ .. this is such a great show. It hasn’t really taken off in Australia – I think it’s in the description. It doesn’t “grab” .. well, it didn’t grab me, anyway. I had absolutely no interest in watching it when I heard about it. It was only that I accidentally caught an episode – I was hooked! Edie Falco pulls off that cute blonde pixie ‘do beautifully.

In other news, I’m PSYCHED for Xanadu later this month *squeeee* :)
