Dear Diary Friday...

Mood....still tired but staying positive.

I am unfortunately catching the dreaded cold and I am not even sure it is from Dylan. My work is a cesspool of sickness and we do nothing but keep swapping the germs back and forth, so that is where I probably picked it up. I have the exhausted body, the scratchy throat, and the starting of the bad nose. My eyes won't stop watering either, and I hate that.

Last night was a nice, quite, relaxing night at home. I watched a bit of tv, I took a bubble bath, I read, I went to bed. Nothing exciting happened and that is exactly what I needed. I am hoping that the energy from the get together tonight will give me what I need to get through our shopping day tomorrow and that on Sunday, I can totally crash and be a vegetable all day. Keep your fingers crossed for me that it happens.

Well, Murphy (aka Joe Cool McDuff) is all settled into his new home and has taken over his place. Unfortunately he still does not like Helga, but I am sure in time he will come to appreciate her as much as the others.

Dear Diary Thursday...


I guess the non-stop day of shopping with the folks took it's toll....I am exhausted today. I came into work much earlier than I normally do so that I could get caught up from being off yesterday, and I finally am caught up. NOW I can start working on today's projects and stuff. Sometimes I can almost see the light at the end of that tunnel and then somebody with a BB gun shoots it out!!!

Shopping went really well yesterday and the folks are now completely done. The only downside to yesterday is when my Daddy decided to "disappear" in a store and my mom went on a rampage trying to find him. When we finally did find him, all I could do to stop myself from laughing was turn away. Up the aisle walks my mother, FURIOUS, and with my Daddy walking behind her with his head hung like a little boy in trouble. But they finally both mellowed out and things were great the rest of the day.

Last night I made dinner for Dylan and I and the two of us relaxed for awhile. He is still fighting the illness and it actually got a bit worse for him. I am hoping to do some home remedies on his tonight so that we can kick it in the butt and be done with it. I have a feeling that we won't be at Jer and Michelle's very long on Friday night because his illness tends to get worse as the night progresses.

The weekend is shaping up to be calm and enjoyable. I even believe that on Sunday I am going to have the whole day to myself, to relax and do least that is what I am hoping. Keep your fingers crossed for me.....

Dear Diary Wednesday...


I took today off from work, in advance, so that I could finish up my Christmas shopping and help my folks finish up there's'. It was nice to be able to sleep in a little and just be "lazy" this morning with doing some things around the house. The cats are very excited about me being home....about ANYBODY being home, and I think Helga is grateful that I am here since she got a new bone and is very protective about it!!

Speaking of cats, the adjustment period for Foster (aka Joe Cool McDuff) is finally over and I saw him running around the house today playing with TWO different cats. I think they are all finally accepting him and welcoming him into our home. Dylan's folks stopped by last night and fell in love with the new child, of course. I am just so happy that Dylan finally has had a chance to pick his own pet and HAVE it in his own home.....he glows when he looks at his family and that is the best Christmas gift to me of all.

Well, I will probably blog later but I must run now.

Oh and special thoughts and energy out to my friend Pam who's blog I visit regularly. She is having some struggles right now so I just want her to know my thoughts and love are with her....

Dear Diary Tuesday...

Mood....tired but happy.

Dylan woke up yesterday morning with the makings of a cold. He was tired and had a sore throat. After work, I went and loaded up cold medication and cough drops for him. We had a healthy dinner, he has his orange juice, and he went to bed early again. I think we are going to get this out of his system by Christmas. And the good part is that he woke up feeling MUCH better this morning. YYEEAAHH!

Dylan and I had a wonderful chat last night and part of our chat was about people in our lives that are so very, very negative and unsupportive. I don't know why anyone would choose to go through their life with horrible opinions about everything around them, the situation their in, and then top that off with trying to put their friends and acquaintances down. And I am not talking about the banter shared by friends where you make fun of them! I was sharing a personal story yesterday morning, something that was very important to me and to Dylan and that we were excited about. All I got in return was a bunch of very negative attitude and rude behavior. Now I realize I probably should not be expecting a lot out of a co-worker, but my GAWD....don't be such an asshole! The other thing that bothers me is those individuals who regardless of how bad YOUR situation in life is right now, they can always top you. You could have both ears falling off of your head, cancer of your toenails, a growth from your ass, pain in every orifice, and your undeveloped twin trying to escape from your intestines and THEY WOULD STILL HAVE IT WORSE THAN YOU!!!

Maybe with the many changes I have gone through this year and working on a better, more positive attitude, it has made me feel harsh towards those people who can't be positive to save their life. The one thing I know is, I strive to be as supportive as possible to everyone in my life....friends, co-workers, and acquaintances. If I can't have it back in return, then there is no reason for me to share my life with you.

Dear Diary Monday...


The weekend was great. We met up with Toni, Rob, Chet, and Shane at Tony Romas on Friday and then had them over to visit after dinner. The company, and the food, as always, was wonderful and we had a great time. Happy, Happy birthday again to Toni and Rob.

Saturday Dylan and I did marathon Christmas shopping and I managed to get Dylan a Christmas present early, one that he picked out and I knew that he wanted. His name WAS Joe Cool McDuff, it is now Foster, and he is an white and orange HUGE cat from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary that Dylan fell in love with quite a few months ago. Everything just seemed to fall into place and it was meant to be, so we now have a new addition to the family!!! Merry Christmas Sweetheart!!!!

Sunday I did another marathon day of shopping, this time with the Mom. We hit every store imaginable and I got almost everything purchased! I am taking this Wednesday off from work and we are going to hopefully be finishing up both my shopping and the Folks shopping....keep your fingers crossed for me. After I got home, I made a huge salad for Dylan and I and we relaxed. Unfortunately, I could tell just by the look in Dylan's eyes that he was getting sick. Sure enough, he woke up with a sore throat today. Send him your energy....I want it out of him by Christmas!!!!

So, how was your weekend????
