Today's a Yucky Day....

I'm nursing a nasty cold right now and feel like crap. Yesterday I got a call from my grandson's daycare to come pick him up - he was throwing up all over the place. His momma was working - her car's in the shop for 3 days - and I'm just praying that I don't start tossing my cookies now too.

Youngest daughter left to go back to Massachusetts last night *sigh* and oldest daughter announced Sunday morning that she is engaged. I think I'm happy about this.... Her boyfriend is a nice guy. He treats her well. But he's got a medical disability (some kind of blood disorder) that keeps him from working full time or having a driver's licence. So of course the parent in me is freaking out right now. I want the best for my daughter. I want her to have a good life. But she's 26 and...well....I'm finally realizing that I can't live her life for her. So I'm trying to be supportive. But I can't honestly say that I'm doing the happy dance right now. I'm trusting God has a plan in all of this - because I sure don't!

On the job front - I was supposed to hear back by last Friday. No call. So I called them. And got an answering machine saying that no one was in the office (she was on vacation and would return today.) So I'm waiting till around noon - and then calling again. Can you hear another sigh here followed by a groan? I need a job and the pickings are slim here unless I want to to take a major pay cut and works for peanuts. The health insurance is killing us! My per-diem subbing barely pays the monthly premium.

Today's not a really good day. I need more coffee and some Kleenex. And a job.

I'll be in a better mood tomorrow. I promise.

I hope your day gets better! Switch on your magical force field so that the germs can't get you!

I'm sorry to read you are down with a cold. Feeling ill makes everything seem yucky.

I'm sending job vibes your way and hoping you hear something great today.

Also, I don't think you are weird for enjoying camping. I used to camp with friends in tents when I was in my early 20's but now that I'm 44 and overweight, not too hip on it anymore. Plus the weather was lousy.

Oh, and thank you for the heads up on mydietblog . I had joined that directory way back in 2006 and never paid attention to it.

Happy Easter to you and sorry that you are feeling crumby. Get better real soon.

Kicking myself now - alot of people are talking about this "I can make you thin" show - I remember seeing it on tv and flipping it off! I thought it was another dumb reality show of course. Will have to keep my eyes open for it again.

Take care!

Hi Sweetie - I've been behind on my reading, so I'm trying to catch up... first, I hope you didn't catch your grandson's crud. That's all you need right now, on top of your cold. Feel better soon, ok?

My fingers and toes are STILL crossed for that job to come through! Don't those people realize what they're doing to my digits?? :-)

Sounds like you had a lovely Easter, sad tears and all. I'm sure your Mom and Dad are smiling as they look down and see you carrying on the family traditions.

Be well and happy, Lora. You deserve both!
