I want   Leave a comment

I want more than anything to know when I go to sleep at night that my children and their children are all safe and snug as a bug in a rug in their own homes and are healthy and happy.

I want for my daughter’s pregnancy to go smoothly and that she and her little boy will be healthy and grow up together.

I want for my siblings to all find  happiness and stay healthy for years to come.

I want for myself to take a vacation or two a year and find peace in all choices I make.

I want for this world for people to treat everyone like they wish to be treated.

I want for this world for people to stop criticizing and find happiness

I want for this world for war to end

I want for this world for child abuse and spousal abuse and mental abuse to all end.

I want for this world for rapists to stop raping, for pedophiles to stop hurting innocent children and for people to stop killing each other just because they feel like they can

I want for this world for all of us to turn to God and realize that without Him we have nothing and with Him anything and everything is possible.

I want everyone to act like every day is just like Christmas morning.
And just learn to love each other as we should.

I NEED to know that my Heavenly Father is watching over me and my loved ones each and every day
And I know that He is.
🙂

Thinking out loud   Leave a comment

so it is Wednesday, my sister’s day off or should I say the beginning of three days off, and it is hump day for the rest of us who work a Monday through Friday job.
I have to say the cold is better, or maybe I should clarify and say my throat doesn’t hurt unless I cough and my nose isn’t running like a high current river like it was yesterday.
I do feel pressure in my chest and it really hurts to breathe deep and cough.
I know, don’t breathe deep or cough, but sometimes I can’t help it.
So hopefully I am on the mend.

My uncle’s 72nd birthday was yesterday and he made it through.
I wonder how he is doing and I think about him daily.
he is the only uncle I have left and they (Hospice) think he will die any day now.

I hope and pray nightly that it is as painless as possible for him.

My youngest daughter was suffering with Braxton hicks contractions last night.
I told her maybe she will have her son on my birthday (This Sunday) but chances are she won’t.
She has four weeks until her official due date so….chances are she won’t go really early.

I’m at work, wishing I wasn’t, and it is supposed to be a really nice day out and tomorrow is supposed to be even better….so….it will make it hard to be at work.
Still, I need the money so I will be here.

My husband will be flying the friendly sky’s to Vegas on Friday evening and that means I will have the bed to myself for four nights.
🙂
I will miss him but I definitely won’t miss his snoring.

anyway I am at work so I suppose I should do something work related around here.
🙂

alright then   Leave a comment

this cold is kicking my butt.

literally

I just got done scrubbing the gym floor and now I feel quite exhausted.
total nonsense if you want to know the truth.

I have yet to reach that 49th birthday and I feel exhausted.
Dang I hate being sick.

not feeling so well this Monday   Leave a comment

I almost called in sick
I have a stomach ache and a sore throat and I can hardly talk
I probably should have but out of some insane loyalty I am here.
Not sure why.
I guess because I feel guilty if I am not here.

I was told Friday evening late that my uncle only has a few more days to live.

His birthday is tomorrow and he will be 72 I believe if he lives that long.
Every time I get aches and pains I think of him and all that he is going through.
I have no reason to complain about anything when I think of him.

I do hope when he goes that it is painless.
I pray nightly for this and I hope his family will be able to endure the loss

LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!
Love having my own personal space to write, or read or just listen to music and not have to worry about offending someone else.
🙂
Now hopefully I will get in to the mood to write.

annoyed   Leave a comment

I’m annoyed today and I can’t even say why.
Well my back hurts and it makes it hard to do anything when I have that infliction on me.
It is raining out and dreary and while that doesn’t annoy me, it makes for a gloomy day.
I guess I am mostly annoyed because the money is so tight.
My husband is going to Vegas next week, WHICH WASN’T planned so we have to budget for that so I am annoyed that the money is tight again.
Just when I thought we were going to be setting for smooth sailing, this happens.
😦
guess I shouldn’t complain.
I’m not at work so that is something right?
🙂

It’s Raining!   Leave a comment

what a lovely sound to hear it raining!
They have been saying it is supposed to rain for the last week and a half and now finally it is raining!!!
I love the rain!
I love how it cleans off the dust of everything it touches.
I love how it falls softly to the earth making the soil dark and rich looking

I love how it reawakens the flowers and grass.
I just love the rain!

My favorite day of the week   Leave a comment

My favorite day of the week is finally here!
Friday!!!
How I love my Friday’s as I know every one does (unless you are one of the unfortunate ones who has to work every weekend)
I have no great plans for the weekend other than meeting my sisters for dinner tonight and getting groceries after that.
I do plan on staying home all weekend and just working on getting my den put together and watching my girls tomorrow night.

It is supposed to be rainy and cooler this weekend so it will be a good time to stay indoors and make progress on the house.

Oh I bought a Hutch on Craigslist the other day and I have to clean it up and decide what I am going to put in it too.
the weekend should be a great one!
🙂

House Rules   Leave a comment

Yesterday afternoon I finished reading “House Rules” by Jodi Picoult and while I had the ending all figured out half way through the book it was a very good book to read.
I love Jodi Picoult and sometimes I read too much of her and then the books aren’t as good as some of the others.
it had been quite a few months since I read one of her books
“House Rules” is her newest
I own all of them except three and I have one I haven’t read yet and do intend to buy the other three I don’t yet own.
She is a gifted writer and I only wish I could write as well as she does.

nope not going to happen this time   Leave a comment

no I do not get to go on a mini vacation to Vegas and ride back to Iowa with my husband.
My days off for this were denied so…I won’t be going anywhere

I am okay with that though really, because I honestly wasn’t sure if I wanted to go anyway.
I would have enjoyed it but really if I am going to be on vacation I want to enjoy it more than seeing pretty scenery as I drive by it.
And riding in a moving van?
not sure that would have worked well for my back.

So my husband will be flying west without me and helping his sister move back to Iowa.

I will have to reserve all my energy and money for our trip to Tennessee in the Fall.
🙂
