MONDAY.......... (aghhhhhhh!)

Have you ever gotten up in the morning and just known that it was going to be a rotten day?  I try not to set the mood in a negative way, but this morning was just 'off'.  The kitchen stinks.  I've been keeping up with the dishes, but that one pot on the back of the stove... the one that looks clean and shiney on the outside... is not clean and shiney on the inside.  I am writing this in order to prolong the inevitable task of toxic waste disposal.

Its just after 9 am.  AOL would not load for 2 hours.  Oh, my internet connection was okay, I've got broadband and I could sign on to IE with no problem, and from there go to  But I couldn't do anything with my picture files.  I finally ended up having to redetect my connection and pretend that I was adding a new cable modem.  Anyhow, it works now... stupid machine!

The kids have been fighting since they got up an hour ago.  They don't have school today.... joy, joy!  I'm tempted to send them to school anyhow, they can sit in the playground until 3.  Weekdays are my days off, dang it!  I have already warned them, one more fight and someone is getting grounded!  Before they even open their mouths they are to ask themselves... 'is this worth being grounded over?', because that WILL be the outcome.

I got a call from Gabe yesterday.  He was getting ready to go to the field.  He had some great news to share with us.... yes... he is still deploying for the Gulf region by fall.  But instead of having to choose one or the other times for his block leave, he is actually being required to take BOTH!  He plans on flying home in June, and then again in August (he wants to have his first legal drink with his parents when he turns 21 in August!).  That really made my day, heck that made my month!

Okay, wow, this was very therapeutic.  I already feel better.  I have always maintained that writing my frustrations helps me to get over them faster.  I think I might actually be able to face the kids now.  (Poor Art even offered me a cup of coffee while I was upstairs ranting...)  Unfortunately the pot still needs to be contended with.  Ugh!  I'd throw it away if it wasn't one of my Wolfgang Puck pots...

Sounds like you are having a day like I had yesterday. I kept getting bumped off my internet connection...I have DSL, nothing is wrong with my phone..all wires are okay..I figured I had a GREMLIN...I just think it's written somewhere, someplace that every once in a while stuff has to go to" h ll in a handbasket. "(an old saying of my Grandma) Glad to hear your news on Gabe, I know you will be happy to have him back here if only for a short time.  As far as the pot are on your own!...I have something growing in my fridge that may want to mate with your pot!.....Sandi

I think it's in the air. I woke up in a crappy mood. I'm trying to get over it, but I haven't been to work yet.
Try to make the most out of the day. I'm going to . Hopefully I won't go across the counter and hurt some one.
Hugs, R.C.
