Good Thursday Morning 4/29/04

  1. good morning everyone!

    i decided that after the debacle of yesterday, i am refusing to be in a bad mood. it's not going to happen today. i don't care who gets on my nerves or what pops into my head. i am just going to give it all to god and let him deal with it! lol!

    now, that's the plan...don't know if it will work, but getting it off my chest to anyone is a bonus beyond yesterday! what's on the agenda today for everyone? i just poured my first cup of coffee and already my heart and mind is warming up!

    i don't have too many plans for today..some phone calls to make cleaning the kitchen, including that elusive area under the sink and the refrigerator. i would also like to try to figure out where to put the mounds of children's clothing that they have (all except poor baby brycie!). the drawers are overflowing and so is the closet (with piper's stuff). i love having a girl but can't resist all the cute stuff for her! i also have a few things to do online, especially since i didn't do anything i wanted to last night.

    i hope that if you worked last night, you had a good one and if you work today, you have a good one! i'm looking to the stars today.... and i am not going to get into a bad mood! no way!

    hugs for all.....

    Good morning! Glad to see that things are better for you today, or that you are at least not going to let the little things get you down! I'm trying to have the same outlook as you!
    I've got to get the kids up and ready for school before long. Of course, big thing on their mind today is my son's (Dylan's) baseball game tonight. Man, who would have thought that six year olds would have ball games that are over an hour away from our home... then again, we DO live out in God's country....
    I know all too well what you mean about having so many clothes. I've been going through the kids clothes as well, and have quite a few to get rid of now. I have a total of three girls! The girl's ages are 13, 11 and 7. The two oldest live with their father (long story) and the younger girl (Regan) lives with me. You would think that Regan would have a TON of clothes, but it's actually the other way around at our house... Dylan has more. Possibly because this family is very good at keeping "good" clothes that get handed down from one child to the next, and there are mostly boys! After my son, the next boy in the family is fifteen months old, so .... we end up with most everything until the new baby grows into it! And I won't EVEN get started about our closet.... :uhoh21:
    As far as the rest of my day goes, I need to go get my drivers' license renewed either today or tomorrow. They expire tomorrow. Thinking of doing a little shopping as well... going to buy myself a .
    Well, looks like I can see the bottom of my coffee cup.. not a good thing.. so it's time to move along and give someone else time .
    Have a good day everyone..

    Morning Mickie! I think it is going to be in the 70's here today too so I may forgo the indoor work and get my hiney outside to rake the back yard. It has to get done!!!! We have to re-seed so much of the yard because the roofers left all their crap all over it all winter.

    BTW, it wasn't little things that started the bad mood, but it was the little things that kept it going! LOL!

    Have a great day!!!!!!!!

    The weather should be nice here today as well, but more rain is moving in. Our backyard is about an acre, so I'm not planning on running out and raking anything!! Now, I think I just might plant some flowers around the deck, but raking is something I don't think my back can take for a few days! That's my story, anyway!

    Woot! I am so tired I'm about to drop. Work was fine, nothing exciting. I took care of my little vented lady that I know so well.

    Glad to see you're attitude has been adjusted. I thought I was going to have to get jnette to give you a dose of warm fuzzies and positive thinking.

    Tweety, did you get through your MRI/coronary stent issue?? Sorry my posts came so late, I should have put them up sooner for ya.

    Greetings to all, we have a FULL day in the Cath Lab today and then dh and I have Jazz class tonite (which is usually followed by bluegrass jam session at the donut house ). I better go rouse the kids (where's my remote-control cattle prod???) and get the lunches going.

    Hope you all have some kind of good surprise today. God bless.

    Morning all,

    I brought my kids to school and fell asleep after dropping them off. I was up until 6 am with incredible insomnia (and maybe too much coffee. I have a very serious question How do you get those did you make those pink elephants? I want to learn how to download this stuff. Another lovely day in Boston...God, I love Mother Nature when she's happy :chuckle We'll talk.

    Just a quick HI before I get crazy busy around here !

    Had to run back to the store for a few more things, now I have to get serious about ironing and packing for the weekend... not too many hours left before bed, then work again tomorrow... then off we go !

    Kim.... good deal ! CHOOSE how you will make your day... YOU control IT, not the other way around.

    And if circumstances pop up which are not pleasant, then you still have a choice in how you DECIDE to react to them ! It's all up to YOU ! Isn't life grand ? Who says we have no choice in matters?

    K, I'm outta here for now... might peek in once more before bedtime !

    (((HUGS))) to all !

    Leslie.. has your Mom arrived yet? Will be thinking of you my Friend. Keep it simple. Keep it mellow.

    Hi Tweetums ! Love you ! :kiss

    Hi everybody else ! Bye !
