Good Thursday Morning

  1. Good morning all.
    How are you today. What does your schedule look like for this bright sunny day? I can't believe I'm actually the first one here to greet you all. Woot!!!!
    For my very first time, I get to post the question for today.
    If you had your life to live all over again, what would you do different? The only thing I can think of that I would do differently is to surrender myself to God earlier. My earlier years were horrible for sure, but there were some bright moments in it like how I spent my summer days (with the exception of working in the hayfield) Which reminds me, for the second part of my question. Who grew up on a farm beside me, and were there chores for you to do that you detested?

    See ya all later

    Good morning Fran!

    You know my past makes me who I am today, and changing it too much might have changed to whole course of events that lead me to the happiness I know today.

    But I would have studied harder in school the first time fresh out of high school rather than party, and become a BSN then. But who knows where I would have wound up? Maybe not here in Florida which is where I met my spouse and found the love of a lifetime.

    That's probably my biggest regret and failure, that isn't a regret today, goofing off and flunking out of college the first go around. I wasted a lot of my dad's money and time. But learned a lot, made some good friends and had a good time.

    Good morning Frances! Glad to see you on this bright morning! For me, my schedule holds 7.5 more hours of work & then hanging out with my DH & my DD for the evening. I need to put some plants in the ground tonight before I forget yet again!

    If I had to do it all over again, I'd have learned to not be afraid & live without regret 20 years earlier than I did. That about covers all of the "do-overs" of my life.

    Morning Fran and Tweety!

    As for the question of the day, I gotta agree with Tweety on this: "You know my past makes me who I am today, and changing it too much might have changed to whole course of events that lead me to the happiness I know today. " So, I wouldn't change much really.

    Now, you guys aren't going to believe this...my idiot (yes, I know that's mean) step-son is back with his VERY pregnant girlfriend and she expects us all to be happy about it. I just told her I wasn't and left it at that. I found out when I called her to invite her to Piper's potty party. She seems to think we are all going to be having picnics together etc. I THINK NOT! I was so angry last night (I guess I still am) that I was shaking. And, here's the kicker, the mom of Morgan (kevin's four year old) cut her hair just to make Kevin mad. Now, if that isn't a reason for social services to get involved I don't know what is! She is using that child as a bargaining chip in his life and something really bad is going to happen. So, I am back on the phone with Children's Services this morning no matter what. I don't give a flip anymore about what the family says. I am NOT going to allow that little girl that I love so much to get hurt anymore.

    Okay, now I feel better having vented to all of you!

    I got so much done yesterday but I have a bunch of people coming tomorrow for a "pee poop potty party for Piper". I ordered a cake (LOL...they laughed at me at the store!) and we are getting her some balloons and a present. Everyone is bringing a small present for her. She went the whole day yesterday without an accident and even slept the whole night with her pull up on and never went in it. So, I have three rooms to dust and floors to do and bills still (yes, I am procrastinating my hiney off!). I can't have my house looking yucky when people are coming.

    Oh, and the kids are having pictures taken tomorrow since we never got any of Bryce. Wal-Mart has such good deals that how can I not get them done? And it makes for great presents for family members. (birthdays coming up!)

    So, the craziness must begin, I guess....I gotta figure out what is going on with my user CP...still screwed up and it's making it harder for me to catch up. I guess I never will....c'est la vie!

    Have a good one ya'll!

    Morning All !

    Just got off from work.. and it's kind of a cloudy, dreary day out there.. what a bummer... I was hoping to spend the afternoon outdoors. Maybe the sun will still break through those nasty ol' clouds.

    Do a little laundry, a bit of cleaning, and just enjoy this afternoon with nothing pressing that needs attention. Hang out here awhile 'til it's sunny out.. then OUT I GO !

    What would I change in my life if I could start from scratch? I think Tweeters hit the nail on the head and put it best.

    I also prefer not to look BACK, but seek out that which I might YET change about myself... what still needs work or finetuning. The past is not in my control... what I do with my future is.

    Go to your browser at the top where it says TOOLS.. open that (leftclick once).. go down to the bottom and click on INTERNET OPTIONS... and in the box you'll see a place where you can DELETE COOKIES. Follow those instructions. Hope that helps.

    Painting rocks?

    As far as I now a good outdoor primer and then a paint made for concrete.

    As far as the cookies all ask DH when he gets home.
