The Five

The Five Feelings starting this day:

1. Depressed
2. Angry
3. Taken for granted
4. Frustrated/Overwhelmed
5. Sad

And the Five Wishes:

1. Things get worked out win-win at work.
2. Someone would stick up for me for once.
3. I could take a break from EVERYTHING.
4. I had time to read a book.
5. Someone would change the diaper I can smell right now.

At Least The Week is Almost Over

So, not the most positive of weeks, eh? Today is the first day of sweeps...but CBS is in re-runs because of the writer's strike...some other networks managed to get some new shows created so our re-runs will be up against first-runs. Not good.

Looks like it is snowing now.

I feel like I am in a constant state of anger. "Stuff" keeps snowballing at work and I feel like I'm banging my head against a wall. I can't sleep because my brain won't turn off. I've prayed really hard we win the lottery so I can say: "You know what, you guys figure this out, I'm going to go live on the beach somewhere. Good luck."

I wish I knew how to write a book. I could be a reclusive author. That sounds really nice.

It's Early Weds.

And I wish I could call in sick and just feel sorry for myself all day. But I can't call in sick to motherhood, so why bother.

Apparently a snowstorm is coming...lovely. Another reason to "hole-in" - but no, my line of work forces me to go out in it and then talk about it all damn day and night. How many different ways can you say: It snowed. Salt trucks. Plows. Slick Roads. Wrecks. Oh, here's my ruler - see how deep it is? Yes, your school is closed, stop calling us. Stay the "F" home, even though we, your news people, didn't.

I wish I was asleep on the couch, in a big cozy comforter, in a silent house -- except for the sound of a crackling fire. ) :

Tuesday. Might as well have been Monday.

Today was a sucky day. Just sucky. And what makes it more sucky -- is that I don't feel comfortable blogging about why since I'm out there for anyone to see. I will say work is hard and often sucky. Being in management is hard. And today was a hard day. Sometimes I wish I could do something else. But I don't know what it would be.


In other news... (funny I would write that since I HATE that lazy transition) .... Kyle had his 5 year check up today. He's a square. Ha ha ... seriously, he's 44 pounds and 43 3/4 inches tall. And of course, he's got his daddy's genes -- 70 percentile in height...gonna be tall. He's also in the 75th percentile for weight. Just right. He's got some hearing issues...and we got some drops that should help until he sees a specialist. And the amazing part: the poor boy had to get FOUR shots today -- and didn't drop a single tear!! And he's my emotional drama king.

Crazy day. Luckily, it's almost over. You can always tell it's gonna be a rough day if I don't get to check in until late at night. Here's hoping Wednesday is better.

I hate Mondays.

And that's really all I have to say about that. I'm always completely tired and hate going to work.

Let's talk about my site. When you visit, make sure you scroll all the way down to see if I've added pictures to my slide show. You can also manage the songs that are playing -- click on the one you want to hear...or click pause if you want it to be quiet. There's also a poll down there that I will update every week.

And if one of my "scrap projects" gets completed -I'll take it off the list and post a pic in my revolving scrap-show. Let's hope that happens more often!! I'll change the pics on the side as the whim moves me. Oh - and check my profile. The site issues a random question every day that I will try to answer. So far, the questions have been pretty weird!

I think I may add links to some of my friends' sites ... still thinking about that.
But I do know I'll be updating a lot. I like my little blog spot.

Scroll Down!

Don't miss anything!  Scroll down to see it all...and vote on my poll.

Happy 35 Love of My Life!

Happy Birthday to the man who's been my best friend for 16 years ... a dedicated husband for 10... a patient (more than me) father for 8 ... and the person I like to hang out with most.  Even if you keep beating my Wii records.  I love you.

(Visitors:  hey, this is the Kelly site...so yeah, it could be more mushy/intimate than the family site.  Get over it.)

Blog Challenge: February

On a scrap website I visit often ... we issue challenges -- topics really -- to blog about to keep us blogging. I issued this one -- because February is just around the corner...I asked: "What are you looking forward to in February?" Simple question really. Not deep.

But I'm looking forward to February. Pinks and Reds and the whole Valentine's feel. Honestly, I shouldn't look forward to February at all -- it's a sweeps months, and with the writer's strike, CBS has very few new shows, and the other networks have more...and there's a really good chance we're going to get killed in the ratings. But. I'm not thinking about that. I'm thinking about pink and red and lovey-dovey girlie things. Yep. And doilies.

I remember making Valentines with my mom....and we always used doilies. That's a happy memory. So I'm looking forward to February and doilies and finding the happiness where I can. Bring it on.

Starting from Scratch

I wanted a place for me....where I didn't have to wait for the "braintrusts" to fix our main family website. So here it is. Pretty blank and uncreative at the moment. But I'm excited about the possibilities. And that's what being creative is all about ... making something out of nothing.

So ... stand back. I'm creating.
