Good Monday Morning May 31, 2004

  1. Good morning everyone.

    Looks like I am the first one here today. How is everyone today? Any plans for the holiday? We had planned a cook out but it looks like we have rain on the way

    Has anyone heard from Richard or Kim over the weekend when I was away?

    Now for the question of the day...hmmm...

    What does your home desk look like?

    Mine is a disaster area. MIL built me these great shelves, but somehow everything just ends up stacked on top :imbar

    Have a good day everyone?

    Working is what I'm doing for Memorial Day.

    My desk is sorta messy . . it is the boxes next to my desk that are the real problem. I need a bigger filing system and a bookcase.

    Good morning. This is the first day I have been able to log in here for a few days. My apartment was being renovated, and I didn't have access to my computer. My son-in-law bought me a computer desk, and is putting it together, so I can say my desk is very clean for now, but once I get set up, I'm not sure it will stay that way.

    I am going to stay home today too. But not because of the weather. It's because I don't get out very much anyway. My illness keeps me inside most of the time. It's raining here today too. Yesterday was nice, so I did go out in my wheelchair for a short while.
    Happy Memorial Day all

    Good morning. Soon for me bedtime. It was my night off, one more to go then back to work Tuesday night. Last night I did some digital painting on my husbands computer. Today, if anything is open, we may go look for a computer for just little ol' me. I could use my husbands computer, but it is more than 4 years old with not much memory left. Never had much to begin with. But it does pretty good!

    I saved up for one, so I can use it for digital art, and buy photoshop software, etc for it. I have a new painting started on a large canvas. I plan to put some of my art on an auction website soon. It's alot of fun.

    We are in the process of turning my youngest sons room into our office or as we call it the computer room. It is messy right now. We turned the basement into two bedrooms for the boys and an area is my art studio. The boys really like their new rooms. Turned out great. My husband and middle son did the remodeling.

    Frances, are you feeling much better today? Take care okay.

    Have a good day!

    It's cloudy here this morning. If the weather improves, we may have a barbeque tonight.

    Not feeling all that well today, but I'll get through it. I got so tired at my daughter's with all the grandkids around and my kids being up until early morning, I was getting sick. So I called my caregiver, and she set up my bed so I could at least get some rest. It has helped some, but I do need more. I think it's mostly due to the anemia.

    morning everyone,

    i'm still quite foggy now as i've only had 1 cup of coffee....

    yes, my desk is a mess but so is everything else as i am very disorganized.
    fran, i was worried about you....what is your anemia from??? nevermind, just go to bed and rest. i'll speak w/you when you're feeling stronger.

    hannasmom- how long have you been painting? can 'anyone' paint using software or does it require talent? i so have been an admirer of people who can paint....personally, i can mess up a stick figure. i'd love to learn more about what this software does...

    i need much more coffee so i'll be back in a bit.

    peace out, leslie

    I'm still here, leslie. I have a whole mailbox of messages to catch up on. My anemia is a part of the progression of my COPD. I had to have two units of blood a year or so ago, and am now taking prescription strength iron bid. It's good to talk to you. I sure hope Kim comes back soon too.

    Good morning! We are celebrating my sons' birthdays today. My oldest turned 11 last week, and my youngest will turn 2 this week, so we combined the parties. I have to run to the store today to get their gifts (yes, I'm a slacker) and grab a cake, then we will have a lazy, relaxing day as a family.

    HAPPY BDAY CALEB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My computer armoire is a HUGE mess, but guess what, shut the doors and NO problem.
    The rest of my house is usually very "neat" but I have my "hotspots" like they say on www.flylady.net and the computer armoire is DEFINATELY ONE OF THEM. AH well can't all be Martha Stewart can we?

    Happy Memorial Day all. Take the time to remember our lost and the veterans today, and if you know one, thank him or her for their service. Have a safe and enjoyable holiday.

    You're doing everything right. Another way to get there is to go into the yahoo.com website, then click on groups. After you get into the groups page, type in christiandaughtersunited.com. It will take you to our site where you will have to give a brief testimony about why you invited Jesus into your life, and then fill out the application. Everyone who signs into our group has a yahoo email account. It's a part of the program.
    I hope this helps.
