    Morning everyone...

    Weather: Warm now but gets cold and rainy in a couple hours.

    Sleep: Cha right. The few hours I am getting aren't nearly enough

    Mood: Anxious and aggitated and very manic

    Plans: Shower and celebrate "hide your panties day" (NOT). I hate GYN appts. Do some laundry. Have to go to dd's house and am not looking forward to it other than the possibility I MAY see Junior. Dh committed me to this without asking and it's kind of ticked me off. Will need to pick up dh from work since I've been designated errand girl today. And cook dinner. Watch some Idol later. Then bed.

    Weather - cold

    Sleep - So so

    Mood - good

    Plans - go to thereapy this morning not just for therapy, but so my therapist can perform surgery on my sonnybear. lol I noticed last night that he has a hole in his lil armpit and emailed my tdoc to ask if she could sew him up cus I don't know how. She emailed me this morning and said to bring him in and she'd see what she could do. So Sonny is scheduled for armpit surgery this morning. Awwwwwww lol Later this afternoon will chat with my Aussie friend and then chill out the rest of the evening.

    Have a great day!

    Hello dahlings

    Weather: cold

    Sleep: ok

    Mood: ok

    Plans: I still have this cold and I still have water trapped in my ear, so I won't be doing much. I taped Ghost Hunters so I will probably watch that later.

    Hope your all well. Big hugs and lots of muahs

    Weather: Light snow and 26 degrees.

    Sleep: Only 4 hours at the most.

    Mood: A bit crabby and tired.

    Plans: We have to run errands today. Chronic pain levels up so probably no work in the house. At least one nap sometime later.

    Have a blessed and thankful Thursday, friends.

    Sky you're insane!!!!
    Melly and Cookie sorry both of you aren't feeling well. Hope you both get better soon.

    Weather: Clear blue skies, 60's, but supposed to get down to 30 something tonight. Yuck!!!!

    Sleep: Okay I guess. Was supposed to get up early to make phone calls, forgot to set the alarm.

    Mood: Okay I guess. Hubbie claims I'm manic. Don't believe him.

    Plans: Watch Dr Phil, shower, exercise, eventually cook dinner. Hubbie doesn't get off work til 11, so who knows when he'll get home. Went to gp yesterday, found out I've lost 9 pounds since september and I wasn't even trying then. Yeah!!! Hopefully will lose more now that I'm actually trying. We'll see. Found out I got turned down by the school system I was trying to get hired by. Yuck. Will try with one of the other local systems next. Wish me luck. Have a great day guys.

    skypper replied to jselleck's response:
    J, don't you hate when people tell you to "Calm Down,"? Well, I know I do, I'm like, OMG I FINALLY feel awesome and you want me to CALM DOWN???
    Unbelievable, smh...well I hope you find that job you're looking for, the way things have been here, I've sort of beeen looking to, well only applying for places I wouldn't mind showing up at otherwise it'd be just a huge waste of time...

    Debbie doodle doodle-bop head,
    If I had ice cream I'd send ya some... hey! wait!!! I DO have some, totally forgot, but it's plain vanilla i get that for the kids because they love to make shakes, so you'll probably have to fight them for it! HEHEHE

    monkeybee replied to skypper's response:
    JSelleck, So sorry to hear about the school system and I hope one better comes along.

    Debbie, glad the surgery was successful.

    And yes... hearing"Calm Down", or "You have a lot of energy"-- translated "What the heck is wrong with you?" Because you really want to calm down and really can calm down just because someone tells you to do so.
    ddnos replied to skypper's response:
    Well, Michelle, I like vanilla too, and if I have to fight your kids for it, I think I would win cus I'm too much of an ice cream fanatic! lol

    skypper replied to ddnos's response:
    LOL dd!!! you're too much!
    well then you can have some, tell you what, I'll buy you your very own carton, any flavor you like from thrifty errr i mean rite aid, but their ice cream is still the thrifty brand and still one of the best imo

    monkeybee, yeah, i hate that, or in my case they actually DO say, What is wrong with you?? OR the all too popular, WHAT have you been drinking??? Ugh, i makes me SO mad....but the other day i was sort of bad, my heart was pounding right out of my chest i had so much energy, lol, hey i'll take it over being depressed any day though!
