Sparkier this evening :)

Tuesday, June 19, 2012



So I know I started out kind of grumpy today! Sorry for that. :/ The day did get better and I am feeling much sparkier this evening! :)

Work turned out to be pretty great and I wasn't even the slightest bored today. Woo Hoo! I had two great assignments given to me today and that really perked me up! The computer nerd in me really showed today! I am a graphic artist and web designer, although I do not work in the industry. Too many years out of the trade. So when my office job also allows me to exercise my creative side I get super happy!

It's strange, because I chose to go back to school last year to work on getting my Master's in Business Administration by age fifty, while my initial degree was in Graphic Design. I have worked in business so long now, that it makes more sense to continue on this path. I mainly work on websites for family and friends (and of course my own) as a hobby because I enjoy it, but I really love working where my creative side can also be put to good use.

The girls and I also got our two walks in again today. I think I have them hooked now! ;) They have started calling me, instead of me calling them to see if they're ready to walk. Overall it was a great day!

So, thanks to all my spark ladies who stopped by to pass on their condolences about Aunt Lucy's looming visit! I think I have her whipped this month! :)

Dragging my rear today . . trying not to get my grump on!

Tuesday, June 19, 2012



So as I sit here stirring my oatmeal I realize that yesterday I kind of had my grump on. :( With the imminent arrival of Aunt Lucy, comes the blues, the grumps, the fatigue, etc. It's easy to predict once you have been around me a while. I had a hard time dragging my rear out of bed this morning and general feel like I have been run over by the garbage man! There will be no Leslie DVD today! Well, you ladies know what I am talking about! The curse of womanhood. Fortunately, some of you no longer have to deal with such things! I am slowly coming around this morning (thanks to the warm oatmeal and the ability to come on this site and vent) and should be back to my normal upbeat self shortly! But just for now, I really do feel like the kitty in the picture above! I hope all my spark friends are in a more sparky and happy mood!

    I used to get migraines for the first 3 days of Aunt Flo's visits. Trust me, ladies - once she stops visiting, you will NOT miss her. Think of the money you'll save, too! emoticon


HoneyPot, I do hope you're back to normal soon. Just give yourself a little extra pampering for a few days.
Heck, you deserve it even without your favorite aunt's visit! emoticon

    I'm grumpy this morning too (my coworkers will attest to that! Fortunately, after 27 years of working with them, they've learned when to avoid me!) emoticon

My car was running hot all the way to work this morning. I hate car stuff. It's always too expensive!

    It's such an annoying time of the month, but we'll probably be sad when she doesn't come around any more. Probably. Maybe.

Hope your day turns around!

Dang! That food was yummmmy!

Sunday, June 17, 2012



Dinner was fabulous! Grilled steak (small portion), yellow squash & onions, one red potato (baked) and splurged with one slice of fried green tomato! What a super Father's Day! Pooh is stuffed and happy, which makes his honey happy! And I did not go overboard (too much). :)

I hope all my spark friends also enjoyed their day!
