Fri, 15 May 2015 17:03:46 EST Better day!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5928247 I went into work and started cleaning out Kissy Face's fish tank. I was working on it when one of the Guys from the Gun Room came. He was going to work out in the shop today! He had one of My favorite dogs Mr. Mihlo!! He spent the day with Me. It made things better!! I entered revenue today. There was one check that had 13 pages of oil & gas entries. I feel a little bit better!! I hope everyone had a great Thursday! Love Y'all!!
