I've got a lot of weight to lose and this has been a difficult time for me to do what needs to be done to get the weight off.  I usually say I'm not going to buy anything new to wear until I lose the weight but always end up However, I always end up finding something new that piques my fancy.

Perusing the internet for something to wear to a special event I happened upon this website: for sizes 14-24.

They have a midi skirt I want!

Check them out!

Have a relatively random day!

When I started this blog I was all fired up and ready to post something every day. We all know how it is when life gets in the way. But I'm putting the past behind me and starting fresh today.

Thought #1

God knows we're grateful but take time to thank Him. He loves it when we talk to him
Thought #2

Sometimes we overload ourselves with too much 'stuff' and then get mad at ourselves for committing to too much. We can find ourselves taking it out on others. Slow down

Thought #3

I need to quit procrastinating! 

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming!

Have a great random day.

I was just talking to a good friend and we discussed some stupid but fun things we had done in the past. One of my stupid things was to sneak cigarettes from my parent's store and run (literally running) downtown to smoke in Ball Stores' restroom. I was twelve or thirteen at the time. I was working at the store and I knew the times when business would be slow so I'd lock the store to go to Ball Stores. I would only smoke one cigarette and sometimes I would throw the rest of the pack away or if I was bold enough to take a purse with me, I'd put the pack in my purse so I would appear grown up.

Now Ball Stores was only a few blocks away or at least it seemed like it back then so I was able to smoke and run back home in about ten to fifteen minutes. I would unlock the store, go in and act like I had been there all along. I wonder if my mother and father ever realized what I was doing. 

I also remember going to the Bahamas on my Senior trip and cigarettes were $.25 a pack. I smoked like a chimney the entire trip and when I got home I couldn't talk. A guy I liked just happened to call me that day and my throat was so sore I couldn't talk to him. He never called back.

Also in 1988 when cigarettes were $1.25 I bought a pack of my favorite brand. One cigarette made me sick. I bought a milder brand, one of those cigarettes made me sick too. I bought a third pack and when I got sick that time I threw all three packs away. I found out a few days later I was having gallbladder problems and ended up having surgery the following week. Needless to say I quit smoking cold turkey. Gained a lot of weight but maybe I saved my lungs.

I'm not advocating smoking at all; in fact I just found out my birth mother died from smoking. So while some of the memories are fun to think back on I'm glad cigarettes are no longer my crutch

Welcome to my rants and other ramblings!



Good afternoon people! I often find myself with a lot to say and a blog is a great place to do just that. I don't want to talk about one thing in particular but everything that interest me.

So welcome to RELATIVITY: Rosa's Rants and Other Ramblings
