Are You a Half Glass Full Or Half Glass Empty Kind of Person?   Leave a comment

I always and have always felt like I am the glass is half full.

Most people I know are the glass is half empty.

Most people I know are down and blue.
It is depressing to me

Most people complain and can’t find any happiness.

Which saddens me.

Now don’t get me wrong, I am not always sunshine and roses, but I do know that I have so very many blessings.

Every child and grandchild I have are gifts from God.

I have my health and all of my family is healthy.

I have a good job, a nice home and a man who loves me.

I want for nothing.

Not really.

My glass is always half full.

Yes I would love to retire completely and just bask in life and my grandchildren but that will happen one day.

Maybe not for a few years yet but I know it will happen.

Life is what you make of it.

I just wish the people I know would see it that way and not be so unhappy.

The constant complaining just wears on my soul.

Life this day~   Leave a comment

Well I have to be at work here in about an hour and twenty minutes.

I sure hope this is my last two till ten and I can go back to just working nights.

I detest second shift.

It just is not for me.

Give me first or third any day.

We have enough employees now that I should be able to just work third.

Hopefully my boss sees it that way.



I am missing my grandson’s ballgames working second shift.

I missed my grand daughter’s birthday party due to working second shift.

It just stinks and I hate missing out on things.

Working third I can at least sleep when I need to and not miss out on things.


Ideally I would like to quit working all together.
But that is just the same old song different day scenario.

I need a vacation.

Headache, Grandchildren and Work~   Leave a comment

I have a headache and have had it all day.

I am thinking it is due to not sleeping right and the neck pain is causing the headache.
My grandchildren just went home.

Miss Ava is so dang wonderful.
Twice today she covered her eyes to go to sleep.

hiding eyes

I just love her to pieces.

I love the others too but Ava is so sweet and innocent.

I was thinking earlier how sad it is that we won’t be having any more grandbabies.

I know six is a good number but Miss Ava makes me think having six more would be great too.


My friend Laurie gets to come back to work so she will be working with me this weekend.

I am glad she is back.

Hopefully I can finally go back to third shift and just work third shift once the two new kids get the training done.

I work tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday 2-10

I told my husband when he was complaining about grandkids, that I would be more than happy to stay home and watch them and he work.

He makes twice plus what I make an hour.

But unfortunately he can only make $30,000 a year.

Pissed   Leave a comment

So I am trying to get on my nook and it keeps telling me my password has expired and I need to go to my email to get a new one

The trouble is, that email was from the school district and no longer exists so I no longer can get my books from my Barnes and noble account

it pisses me off

I have close to a hundred books on there

Why can’t things be left alone?

Why say a password has expired if I am the only one who ever used it, what is it to them if I never change it?

Matthew~   Leave a comment

My son Matthew is 33 today.

I didn’t get to see him which I think is a bit unfair since I gave him life, but he spent it with his family and that is what he preferred to do.

I am just mom.

Matt, as everyone calls him is a quick wit, extremely funny and a very down to earth kind of guy.

He has always been a quick wit.
Even as a child.

My sister Cyndi use to think he was extremely funny with how easy he would come back with a instant remark that would have people laughing on the floor.

He has two daughters and his wife of course.

They live about fifteen miles away and I don’t see them as often as I would like.
But my other son lives about six blocks from my house and I don’t see him all that often either.

Matt has a good head on his shoulders, and is always studying one thing or another to be knowledgeable.

I am proud of him.

He is a  lot like his father though and isn’t very affectionate or willing to give his old mom a hug and kiss.

He is a man so I guess I shouldn’t expect much.

I Hate Life~   Leave a comment

Well that is not one hundred percent true.

I don’t actually hate life I just hate my life at this moment.

I can’t sleep

I went to bed at ten, woke up at a few minutes before midnight because I had to go to the bathroom.

Came back to bed and tossed and turned and tried to get my brain to shut off, but it wouldn’t.

I would doze for twenty minutes or so and the rest of the hour I would be awake.

This happened all night.

It is almost six am and while I feel tired, the moment I tell myself I am relaxed enough to go to sleep it is like my mind says “Oh no you aren’t!” and I am wide awake again.

I hate when I can’t sleep

Tomorrow night I will have to be working all night and won’t be able to sleep, and can’t sleep……why does it have to be this way now when I need the sleep and want to sleep on my night off I can’t?

I just hate it all…..

Days Off   Leave a comment

My days off are flying by.

Here it is Saturday already and I have to be back to work on Monday night.

I hate it.
Literally hate how fast the days off go.

There is never enough time to do everything I need to do.


Since being up I have bathed and cleaned the bathroom.

Started laundry and cleaned the grandkids play area in the basement.

Ate breakfast and here I am.


We are having my youngest son’s birthday dinner tonight.

Ham and Chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, cheesy broccoli, dinner rolls and cake and ice cream.

We are having Chicken too because my eldest son doesn’t like ham.


Paula our eldest daughter isn’t going to make it down due to being ill so everything got changed.

Matt doesn’t want to go out to drink, but they will drink here while they enjoy a home cooked meal and hang out.

Matt will be 33 on Monday.

Matt is the one on the left, then my husband Rick and then our son Brian who will be 38 in February.
