Missing again?

Friday, April 05, 2013

I'm on here nearly all day and still forget to blog one day..wow...I think my brain took a vacation. :D

Well, the good news is I do have a track on it and should have it back in the next couple...days, but until then, I'm not responsible for anything posted here....unless it's good :D

Got my exercises done, I've started doing the "online survey, get paid to do" stuff, and boy does that keep a person busy!

Wednesday night our daughter's boyfriend talked to my husband about our daughter moving in with him. She was supposed to talk to me but kind of "forgot" (while laughing). Her boyfriend is a nice guy...but there are times we don't get along the best, mainly because of his political views. :D So we avoid those subjects, but if he brings them up, I'm not going to back away. Ya, ya, I know I should, but dang, his views are so warped. Thank goodness our daughter thinks more about the candidate she wants and doesn't just vote for the party. That's what he does, and then when anything goes right for us in regards to the President's actions, he's up at arms...his family has that green stuff, so there's a HUGE difference in our beliefs as to who should benefit.

I get so tired of his mentioning the "trickle down" effect, but I've gotten so I either ignore it, or tell him "trickle down only works if you're trying to get pregnant, and boy do the rich try to s***w" he usually ends the discussion which is good for everyone involved. :D

Alright, so that wasn't nice, but hey, it's true, ANYWAY...step away from political stuff..let's move on.

I'm not expecting to do a lot this weekend, I'm hoping the weather is good, we still have some snow in the ditches, but for the most part it's gone. Fed ponies this morning (daughter and her bf are fixing up a building over at his place for pony stalls...kind of need them considering she has 2 horses and 6 shetlands, and one more on the way any day soon.)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead of you, and that tomorrows sun shines even brighter! emoticon

  


Movie time

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Going to the movie today with my son, maybe my mom, she's not gotten back to me so I don't know, but I'm hoping it's good, "Olympus Has Fallen", it looked good. Wish our daughter could go with, but she has school at 3 pm, so now I'm hoping she'll be able to go with us to see "42" next week sometime.

Anyway, got my exercises in, been so busy trying this online job thingy, I'm still trying to remember the name of the local business that does the same type of work I used to do, I may have to go through my history to find out. That drives me insane, but then again it's not like I thought about it everyday before my job closed.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and an even better tomorrow!! Skip Forward, never back, you'll get to your destination faster! emoticon

  


Busy..again

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

I had to clean out the desk beside my computer and WOW what a mess of things I found, good and not so good. The not so good were all things having to do with my Dad's passing, I forgot I'd put them there, but I've been working on a photo album with all that stuff in it, so I put it there until I could get to it. I also have the Teddy Bear that Hospice gave him a couple days before he passed..it was one thing of his I really wanted to keep because a few days before he passed away, I was reading "Lonesome Dove" to him, he loved that book and movie and I don't know how many times he'd read it, but he had started reading it again, so I read it to him, and I stopped and looked at the bear and said "Hey, Dad, think we should give him a name? " My younger sister looked and said "I know let's call him Ole" (My Dad's full blooded Norwegian and very proud of it. He'd not spoken or really responded much during the day before that or that day, but he looked at me, and shook his head as if to say "no, not Ole", and I had to laugh, my sister did too. Well I looked down at the book and then to my Dad and said "how about Newt?" (a character in the book) and he got a smile, in his eyes, and nodded. It was the funniest thing, and I felt so proud of my Dad for answering, even without words, it was still an interaction with us, which was a miracle on it's own.

Anyway, Newt will always sit next to my computer monitor along with a photo of my Dad when he was younger. Right now it makes me cry to think about it, but it's more of a happy cry. I miss my Dad everyday of the year, but I know he's in a better place.

Anyway, back to the busy part, I've got that cleaned off and it looks much better, threw away about 1 small trash can full of junk. Now I have to get to work (I'm hoping these online "jobs" are legit, but if not, at least I'm busy doing something.

I hope you all have a glorious day and count your blessings..they're gone too soon. emoticon

  


Sugar Free temptations!

Monday, April 01, 2013

yes, I missed 2 days, Easter things happening with family, sorry. But after getting up for Sunrise service on Sunday, and spending the day with my Mom and brothers family at church (sister didn't want to get out of bed "that early", neither did any of her kids (one lives away from home with his girlfriend and their son).

It did kind of upset me because my Dad had always wanted all of us together on Easter morning, and she's just never even made the effort to go, simply because she wants to stay in bed. She'd come over to my Mom's house later for lunch, and even then (11:30am) her youngest son wasn't out of bed. I know I'm venting here, but it really upsets me that she just can't take time to attend service with us one day out of the year, on the early service, and a special one at that, with the entire family. Maybe I'm just in a bad mood today (have a major headache) and it'll vanish after the alieve kicks in. :D

Anyway, back to things at hand. I did get at least 20 minutes of exercise in yesterday, not my usual 32, but I was close. I'm not going to beat myself up over it I'll just move forward.

I made some sugar free brownies which I took over, and ended up bringing half of them home (a 9X12 cake pan), plus my Mom sent home with us, some sugar free dessert. I'm trying to keep track of carbs, etc etc in them, but I have no clue because it's all homemade. I still have to figure out how to do the recipes and have them make sense. I always mess them up. :D

Ok, so have a great day, it may be spring, but I think for this day, it sprung..it's COLD out, not winter cold, but the breeze is cold, I think they said upper 20's? It's April...is this God's April Fools joke for us? :)

Have a beautiful day and always cherish the Sonshine!!

  


Rats...errr...mouses

Friday, March 29, 2013

My day just gets better and better, BUT I'm not going to let anything get in the way of my working towards my goal.

After getting the email last night telling me the job I've had for over 20 years is closing, I found one of the figurines my Mom and Dad had given me, a collectors item, had a piece broke off of it...and of course no one knows how it happened. Isn't it funny how things like that happen?

Nobody and Idontknow must live here a lot because when something like that happens, they sure are blamed for all of it!

Then to find out our daughter and her boyfriend are going up to his sister's house on Easter weekend, when we've always had a family breakfast after sunrise service since before she was born. It was kind of disappointing, but..what can you do?

As for the job, I've called another place in town that does the same thing, but, of course, the woman wasn't in I needed to speak to, so a wait over the weekend until Monday comes around.

It does get frustrating, but I REFUSE to let it overcome me, because I know I have someone watching over me and everything will work out just fine.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and an even better week, and best of all, HAPPY EASTER!
