I totally dropped the ball on blogging in February and here it is March 10th so I better chop chop! I devised a brief update of what I did last month.

Reading: I read Marilu Henner's book, The Total Memory Makeover. This actress of Taxi fame has a rare kind of memory that is only found in a very small percentage of the population and I was very excited to read her book because people tell me that I have a crazy good memory. However, what she has is called HSAM - Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory and she can remember every single day of her life from 5th grade on (I believe--ha I forgot!). But anyhow her memory is very detailed and goes back to childhood. She can bring up any day from her life from that point forward and tell you what she was wearing, what her hair looked like, what she weighed, what day of the week it was, what the weather was doing. I think that is so fascinating! And, no, my memory is not quite that good but I do have a freaky memory for dates and can often remember what I was wearing, and whenever certain songs come on from the past I can tell you what guy I was dating. Probably not that unusual!

Loving: I was loving all my spring flowers that I brought into my office to brighten up winter - I had a bulb garden, a cyclamen and the bouquet of flowers I got for Valentine's Day. They have since all died of course. :-(

Thinking: Oh, definitely thinking I was tired of winter especially as we ended up with 60 inches of snow and 50 days below zero. Ugh!!

Feeling: See above! Feeling tired of winter! And it is not that I don't like winter but enough is enough and even people who love winter would be tired of this! I had some really long commutes of 3 hours where I may as well have lived in my car.

Anticipating: My vacation to Southern California beginning April 4th! And also dog sitting Roxie, my favorite little Shih Tzu.

Inspired By: My friends! Everyone is good at something and everyone has gifts. I appreciate all my friends!

Watching: More like NOT watching the Winter Olympics or the Walking Dead. I don't have any favorite shows right now and didn't really watch a lot of TV in February.

Sad: I don't think anything made me too sad in February as I flipped back through my calendar for reminders--except the anniversary of my dad's death on Feburary 12th. I still miss him of course, so yes, that was actually a sad day. Gone 12 years now....

Working: Working and working out! Still working my 4 and a half days a week as a receptionst at an upscale bath and body company and I have to add in working out - barre burn and zumba classes and really doing the elliptical almost every day.

Grateful: I have a lot to be grateful for - wonderful friends, adorable pets, a good job, a nice house, a really nice car, a closet full of clothes, a husband who would do anything for me, good health, not a lot of REAL worries. I try to remind myself of that every day!

Listening: I listened to a lot of Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke. I am open to listening to something new! Any suggestions?

Wishing: Oh, I wished for a lot of things. None of which have come true - YET. So that's it for February in a nutshell. In the midst of March now and need to get better at blogging.

I still have NOT made my vision board yet and that was going to be my big project for January. Maybe that is why my wishes are not coming true! :-)
