looking back a year ago   Leave a comment

the funny thing about looking back to a year ago and blogs I had written then is….I am still in the same boat as I was then.
I still am at a job that I want to get out of, and I am still feeling like my life is pretty mundane with the same thing happening each and every day like it did the day before or the week before.
it is crazy and I do need a change.
The question now is…what kind of change?
A different job?
A different attitude surely would help too!
And honestly I feel pretty good about life today.
I still wish I had a different job but that isn’t going to happen unless I quit here and take something with at least a five dollar cut in pay.
The question is, do I stay here and make good money for all the frills I want in life, or do I change jobs and buckle down and stop spending money?
Ideally I would like to stop working all together.
now if only I could swing that and talk my husband into it.

why do people feel the need to complain?
I don’t understand.
People get on face book and rant and rave about Barrack Obama and the horrible job he is doing as president (their words not mine)
and all I can say is, do you think you could do a better job?
I get so tired of people complaining.
I get so tired of people finding fault with everything and every body.
I don’t know the president personally and I am not a political person, but I think the guy is probably doing the best he can.
I refuse to believe that he is as nasty and hateful as other people claim him to be.
I realize everyone is entitled to their opinions however I wish there was a forum out there some where that they could complain on and I would never have to read.
I realize too I can quit reading facebook and I just might….because I get really tired of people complaining all of the time.
It depresses me and I don’t like feeling depressed.
I consider myself a happy go lucky person who sees the brightness in most everything.
I am always a the cup is half full kind of person.
I hate when so much negativity brings me down.

yard work   Leave a comment

oh it was a glorious day in Iowa yesterday afternoon.
My husband, youngest son and I worked in the back yard raking it and making it look all nice and spiffy.
We worked on it for two and a half hours and while the men did the majority of the work, (I watched little girls) it is nice to have it done.

Tonight providing the weather cooperates with me, I plan on raking the front yard and side yard that joins our neighbors.

couldn’t ask for a nicer spring day then yesterday.
I think I even got a tiny bit of a tan on my arms.
