Happy Monday, Sept 18, 2006

  1. Finally, a new week. This last one was just hell; I'll share details later, but I need a break. Or a drink.

    Grab some coffee, sit down and share! I'm gonna see if I can sleep.

    Love and peace to you all.

    Don - I've got a glass of wine poured and I'll join you in that break.

    Seeing that it is only 9:12 p.m. Sunday night - I'll have to wait to wish everyone a Happy Monday but I too look forward to a new week. Actually, Sunday is the first of day the week so, the new week is a day old:wink2:

    don, good to see you, and you know you can vent to us anytime! hope you get some time to unwind, and that things are looking up.

    steph, i just had some crumb-top apple pie that i bought at oak glen, after we'd played our music. it's apple season there, and the pie was delicious, thanks for asking!!

    we just got back from jazz rehearsal, have another one tomorrow evening (program is sat nite.). still need to press a few things, and change one bed's sheets, so will sign off with a good morning to all who follow (grace, where are ya??? coooooeeeeeeeee!).

    Good Morning!

    Gosh guys, I've been soooooo busy - it's just crazy. I've still got a very nasty, nasty, nasty head cold. No fever - yet. But I feel all "blech" - KWIM? :stone

    Here's a very nice song.

    It's by a band called Dire Straits - and they were my very first "band". Even before I heard of Pink Floyd, The Doors, U2 or Scorpions.

    They sounded great then... and they still do. he lead guitarist is Mark Knopfler - perhaps one of the 5 greatests guitarists the world has ever seen

    Gotta head to bed - it's Uncle's birthday today ...

    Morning all !!

    DH decided to take the day off today....one of the joys of self-employment!! Snoozin' on the couch right now....shhhhh.....I'm trying to be quiet. Really foggy this morning....but supposed to be another beautiful day after it burns off.

    Need to do some research...but can't get my password to work on data-base libraries....typical.....going to have to call the college again this morning!!

    Not much else going on here....have to work tonight....so there is definately a nap in my future....but for now, need more COFFEE!!

    started raining about 20 minutes ago now it is really pouring
    still can't sleep but will be able to go check out a house that ds is thinking of buying to see if it leaks or how the drainage is

    i hope that what ever the problem is that it resolves itself...you don't need any stress at this point in your life..take care of yourself first

    glad to see so many people up and at em this early in the morning never believed in getting up early myself...when you have insommia in the morning you really have insommia

    might as well take a shower and start the day

    Oh Tweety, Ugh. Ick. Eww.

    Anyway, goodmorning, everyone.

    Don, whatever it was last week, I hope it's all done for now and things are going well for you.

    It's going to be hot today then supposedly cool off tomorrow. I want to see weathermen say it right for a change.
