Getting Warmer

I read something yesterday which just made so much sense to me and it got me to wondering if every question we're faced with can really be answered by answering one simple question. The simple question is am I getting warmer or colder. You know that game where someone hides something and then you are only told if you are getting colder or warmer to the hidden object as you move around the room? Well, that's the idea you should apply to your entire life. Decide what it is that you want, so health, to lose weight, eat better, have more free time, read more, spend more time with your husband/kids/dogs, etc., whatever it is, whenever you have to make a decision ask yourself if your decision will make you warmer or colder.

On a side note, I may have discovered something else that could make losing weight easier. Behold the mighty iron supplements:

As I reported before, it has been discovered that I am anemic. Now, everyone I know who has ever had to take iron supplements has complained about how hard it can be on your stomach. That made me not look forward to taking them and then I read in the drug information that one possible side effect is "lack of appetite" and I immediately popped open the container and took my first pill.

On a really side note, how in the world did I miss the entire third season of The Tudors on Showtime? I kept wondering when it would start up again so I checked the web site and saw that the third season had already aired. Now I have a lot of catching up to do. When I last left Henry he had just had Ann Boleyn excuted and now he is currently on his third wife, Jane Seymour. You know, the one who actually gives him a son. How odd is it to look back on that entire period in history and wonder what, if anything, would have been different had they known that the sex of a baby is determined by the man's sperm and not by the woman? Thus, that Henry kept having girls was his own "fault." I think even had he known this he still would have beheaded two of his wives. After he killed Ann I'm really amazed that he managed to get four more women to marry him. Some women are just gluttons for punishment I guess.
