Dear Diary Friday...

It is a dark day.....the greatest man in Country Music, the ONLY reason to have ever listened to Country Music, Mr. Johnny Cash, has passed away.

And then to top that off, one of my favorite comedians/actors, John Ritter has also passed away. I don't know about you, but deaths come in three...........

Dear Diary Thursday....

It is going to be a long day......I am just not in the mood to be here. I want to be home, curled up in bed, relaxing and sleeping. And then I want to get up and do a few things around the house and yard. I then want to make lunch, a nice tomatoe sandwich and some fat free potatoe chips. Then, I want to take a nap after reading a few chapters of a book. Then, I want to start working on some Halloween projects that I have going......painting headstones for the yard and gifts for my family. But nnnnooooooo.....I get to be here at work. Oh well, I will obsessively bug Toni today and she can entertain me. She likes it when I do that.

Dear Diary Tuesday...

Today is going to be a much better day than yesterday. Yesterday was just a horrible day, all the way around. I woke up with one person on my mind, a person I had no desire to speak too, and that was the one person who decided that they needed to talk to me. Work was horrible, busy and just with a lot of stupidity. Thankfully, the day ended and without any casualties AND I got a lot done.

I woke up in a much better mood today and I plan on kicking some ass at work. Our group is so far behind on paperwork that it is embaressing. I know I can't do it all in one day, but I am going to come as close as I can.

Happily, we are only about 51 days from Halloween!! One of my haunted houses opens this weekend, the stores have their Halloween merchandise coming out, the world is in a good place. I am focusing my energy where it should be focused, on myself, the love of my life, my good and true friends, and family. I have come to discover, but experience and watching others, how easy it is to become so wrapped up in your own world that you have no idea, and no real care, to know what is going on with others. I would hate myself if I was so selfishly consumed with myself and how wonderful I am, that I neglected other friendships and the needs involved in those. I am not a person that can keep a friend in my life who only pops up every now and then, and then disappears. That is not a friendship, that is an acquaintance....nothing more.

Dear Diary Sunday...

It was a wonderful weekend, and just the perfect weekend to kick off my Autumn. Friday I went to the Utah State Fair with Dylan, Toni, Rob, Chet, and Shane and to say that I had phenomenaly good time would be a huge understatement!!! We saw every square inch of what they had to offer, ate all of the grand food, spent every moment laughing, and my energy is back where it should be. Oh, and I got to see my man in action, defending me. I was openly disgusted with a booth that they have that is a "Hunt for Money" booth. If you do not know what that is, it is a company that hires hunters to go out and shoot trophy animals for other people to hang on their "farms". Well, they were showing a video, and mind you I saw only about 10 seconds of it, of hunters slaughtering a lion. I am not sure, but the last time I checked, lions were an endangered species AND the her was not needing to be thinned out. So, I have to be escorted out because I am openly crying. We had to hold Dylan back so that he would not go in and kill the pieces of shit that would run such an operation. However, we got moving again, I got laughing again, and we ended the evening on a positive note.

Saturday I was up and shopping in the morning and then late afternoon the folks and I headed to the Fair again. Once more, a wonderful time seeing all of the exhibits, showing my parents the ladies that make lace, and just having a wonderful time. My folks had a great time, but we were there for almost 5 hours and it exhausted them. We came home and just crashed.

Today has been, once again, a very busy Sunday and have spent it with the folks. The entire house is clean, I have made potatoe corn ham chowder, and I just finished doing yardwork with the folks. I am now hiding downstairs as the Ward Teachers, the ones that really irritate me because they are just low life assholes, are upstairs with the folks. Hopefully they will be leaving soon so that I can go and feed the parents and then head back outside to do a little more yardwork!!!!
