Routine

So last night I asked for advice on how to get up early (before 730 in my case) consistently and almost without fail everyone suggested setting a routine and sticking to it.

It got me thinking. All of the things that have been bugging me lately, my weight, my sleep patterns, my slovenly (for me at least) home, the fact that I don't style my hair or wear "enough" makeup at work. All boil down to a routine. And all of these things help make for a much happier and healthier PJ.

Something I used to be so good at and something I let slide for far too long.

So

yeah

I need to get back on the wagon and quit slacking

1.Start cooking at home more often and quit being lazy about it
2. Get back on track with cleaning a bit every day and having a morning on the weekend with coffee and cleaning. I like that shit.
3. Start walking again, I like it I just haven't been doing it enough
4. Start getting up early enough to actually do my hair and apply more than the bare minimum of makeup
5. Put my damned laundry away as I am doing it. I am really good about Mr.S's laundry and getting it put away, now to get better about doing it for myself.

All of these things combined will definitely improve my mood, my house, myself.

Hearsay

hear·say

  [heer-sey]  Show IPA
noun
1.
unverified, unofficial information gained or acquired from another and not part of one's direct knowledge: I pay no attention to hearsay.
2.
an item of idle or unverified information or gossip; rumor: a malicious hearsay.



Last couple of weeks/months I've seen and heard  a lot of "I'm mad at you because I heard you said X" or "so and so told me that you were talking shit about me" or some variation thereof. I don't get it. If you are friends, really friends, wouldn't you want to talk to your friend to find out what is actually going on or what was said? And maybe not publicly air your dirty laundry? I know that when I see this shit posted on the social networks, all I can think is "um this is soooo not my business" but there it is, for the world to see. 

I myself have had this happen to me. Someone cut me out of their life without saying anything to me whatsoever and as I didn't see this person regularly I did not really have a chance to ask them what the hell happened. When I did finally run into them and I asked what happened they told me that they heard I had talked a bunch of shit about them and instead of confronting me and asking me about it they decided to cut me out and move on. 

I was actually a little bit glad they cut me loose as anyone who would take the word of someone outside of the relationship without even once checking with me about what was actually said, is not someone I want in my life.

 I don't have time in my life for those kinds of people. 

Do you? 



P.S. Thanks to the social networks by the way for letting me be privy to so many people's private conversations/issues, thanks for making so many people feel like it's okay to air your dirty laundry and private grievances. I just want random ephemera and cat pictures darnit.
