American Idol and Amaranth


Last night Alexis won 4 tickets to see American Idol at the movie theater…Blake Lewis was there…the closest to a star she has ever been…what a thrill…and she got her picture taken with him…twice! What was really amazing though is how much the power of visualization came through over the past few days. First was that…the only way to get into this show was to win it…have you ever tried to get through to a radio station when everyone else in town is too? She got through…got so excited…then accidentally pressed the hang up and redial button…out of habit….She was so upset with herself she called the radio station later when the calling was done and told the man…he felt bad for her…told her to call back in 20 minutes and he’d give her the tickets…he did. During all these calls though she did come down and say how much she wanted to go….real bad…we asked “in harmony”….and she and her friend Emilee had the time of her life last night. Emilee’s mom was so excited about the tickets that Alexis said she could go…and took me too : ) While we were in line I asked Dawn…the other mom….if she was ready for graduation…we both have other kids graduating this year…anyway…we got on the subject of reserving tables and chairs to rent…I hadn’t thought of that yet…it was the furthest thing from the planning for me…I was going to wait until a week or two before the party…she said that she reserved hers in February and they were low then…wow, I was really freaked out! I thought, “oh no, Brett’s party is wrecked!” Also when we got to the theater we were told we could have been there 1 hour earlier…that people had been waiting in line all this time…we were there at the last minute…the line was really long….I felt bad….and worried that we wouldn’t get seats together…and they’d be bad….I kept visualizing us getting 4 seats all next to each other right in the center….I stayed calm and just kept visualizing…and guess what? You know! We got 4 seats all next to each other right in the center. While we were seated…I would remember to worry that I totally messed up Brett’s party because I didn’t think of this big detail…then a little voice in my head said….”If I can get you the seats you wanted in a crowded theater…don’t you think I can get you the stuff you need for the party?” That did calm me down a bit…and I would visualize getting everything that we needed. I stayed awake at night worrying….then visualizing….then worrying…then visualizing….when I finally went to sleep then woke up…I called the rental place….and they had what I wanted! I went down and paid the deposit…he did say I was just in time though…nothing anywhere would be available in a couple of weeks….and I got exactly what I wanted. I didn’t know that I wanted round tables until last night though…what a great idea…it was Dawn’s…the rectangle ones are so awkward…the round ones are much more social…and we’re playing Texas Hold ‘Em later…so that was a great idea! I never get tired of seeing that “what we think about, we bring about.”

Have you had Amaranth? I really want to try it. I’ve been looking for it…it’s a grain…I think I’ll need to get it at the health food store…it’s loaded in calcium and magnesium…more than milk….you know you need magnesium to digest calcium.,,right? And calcium will constipate you on it’s own…magnesium gets the stuff moving…and Vitamin D goes with these too…if you’re in Michigan or one of these cold states where we hibernate all winter…than you need extra. I’ve also been eating quinoa…a grain…yummy…it tastes kind of like rice…but sweeter and smaller….maybe like tapioca…it’s really good….with black beans…rinsed….they’re both supposed to be really good for your kidney’s…and clean kidney’s help produce beautiful shiny hair!
