Visual imagery







a technique we learned in stress management. YOu mentally visualize a place where we would rather be, than in the present. Some people may visualize a flowing river or mountains. I visualize, being on a beach, with apple martini in hand, feeling the sand beneath my toes, kicking and splashing in the warm ocean, looking through the transparent water to see all of the pretty little tropical fish.......

Anything, but being here in Chicago, where it is current -1below zero. With windchills -30 below zero, my souther gals cannot even fathom in their brain, what the heck zero temps feel like, let alone sub-zero temps, but my northern and midwestern girls ALREADY KNOW....

Old man winter needs to go on vacation....

I love all my seasons, but DAMN...

who the heck am I kidding, in the MIDWEST there are all TWO SEASONS...

WINTER and SUMMER...

Either its 105 degrees or -50 below zero....

Hot or cold...

There is no in between

There is no spring and fall.....LOL


When it's this cold, I don't leave the house or sometimes I don't leave the bed....

I am in my bed right now, under a heated blanket, drinking some green tea!

I love fuzzy socks, because I can't stand to have my feet cold...

If my FEET ARE COLD...
I can't get warm!!!

I can't stand being cold.

But you have to make the best out of bad situations...

I am an opportunist at best....

I have been scrapbooking my heart out, reading and..............

doing some really fun things with the dh if you know what I mean...

I may even be pregnant....LOL just kidding...

No more babies for me.....

I am soooooo not bored! LOL

Until next time...

Ooo, that visualization photo is wonderful! I don't know how you do it. I get cold in the 30s and 40s. We've been rather warm in NC this winter here so I can't complain.
