Dear Diary Thursday,

Yesterday was another crazy day at work, but I think I am seeing a light at the end of the tunnel for this week. I hung around for an extra 30 minutes last night to get caught up on a bunch of stuff, and it was definetly to my advantage this morning. I may do that again tonight just so I can keep my head above water tomorrow and leave for the weekend with nothing on my plate.

I had a great evening last night. After settling in for the night, I got a call from a very old friend and we sat and chatted for almost three hours! It was awesome to just touch base, find out how each other were doing, and just catching up on everything in our lives....I LOVED IT! We are going to attempt to keep doing that and maybe, just maybe, meet up for lunch or dinner in the near future. It was so much fun.

Tonight I am taking the folks shopping and then going to try and crash a wee bit early...but we will see how that goes. We started our "Betty is going to lose weight" project last night and now she is in our den with her food, her water,her beds, her litterbox, and nothing else. We are going to monitor everything that goes into her mouth and see if we can take off a few pounds. Unfortunately, Betty thinks we are the meanest parents in the world and sits at the door and mournfully cries in the only way she knows a newborn kitten! It almost had me in tears this morning!

Dear Diary Wednesday,

As always, New Years was a lot of fun with great friends! We spent the evening over at Chet and Shane's house with the usuals, minus the Poors, and ate, drank, and just spent a lot of time chatting. I can't think of a better way to bring in the New Year than sharing love with my friends. And we had a great discussion of how you are allowed to choose your friends, but not your family and that is when Shane and I both stated, "And that is why our friends ARE our family" and it is so true. My friends are such an important part of my life that they are closer to me, and I love them more, than many of my blood relatives. Thank the Goddess for the great people I surround myself with. The only downside to the whole day is that my left ear was KILLING me.

So, we got up on New Years Day and ended up at the Urgent care and I have a raging ear infection, which I already knew. I am not on a high dosage antibiotic which is killing my stomach, and I have to take IB and decongestants to see if it will drain. So far, nothing has happened other than the pain has increased and now my ear is completely plugged up. Oh well, I think I need to be a bit patient.

So, did anyone set a New Years Resolution? I decided against it as I am just continuing on with making myself happy, helping those that I surround myself with their happiness, and continuing down the road to good health (physically, emotionally and spiritually).

Dear Diary Monday...

The weekend was great, but didn't start out very fantastic.

Friday, I was scheduled to leave work about 11:00 but unfortunately, all hell broke loose at my work and I ended up not taking any breaks, any lunches, and leaving at my usual time. I guess I should have expected that since it is the end of the year and all of my accounts are insane right now. When I got home, Dylan and I went to dinner at Red Lobster and I got a HUGE plate of King was so yummy but so rich that it actually ended up making me a bit sick. We then headed over to Petsmart, went to his folks house, and then headed home where I collapsed in exhaustion.

Saturday we got up and had breakfast at Mimi's and then started OUR Christmas shopping. Dylan got a new IPOD Shuffle for the gym, I got some books and a few new sweaters and we did a lot of running around. We headed home and relaxed, planning to go out on Sunday for more shopping. Yeah, that didn't happen. I woke up Sunday with the worst migraine AND my left ear was hurting really, really bad. Dylan went to the store and picked me up some heavy duty decongestants and we spent the entire day in our pj's and on the couch. At about 2:00 pm my migraine finally went away. We relaxed a little more, Dylan headed out to get us dinner and take care of his folks house and then we settled in for the night and watched the first of Grindhouse, "Planet Terror" and laughed our asses off. It is such a campy spoof of the '70's movies that I loved it! I woke up this morning with NO migraine, but my ear is still hurting quite a bit so I will probably be hitting the Instacare on the way home....weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Speaking of tonight, I get to ring in the New Year with my fantastic group of friends once again and I can not WAIT! Shane and I have a very strange connection...something we have known about for awhile, and keep sending each other "I miss you" e-mails at almost the exact same time! It is time we got together and had some kisses and hugs just so we can share that energy with each other, and also with our good friends. PLUS (and this is a bonus for me) I think that Toni got a new haircut on Saturday and I can not WAIT to see it! WOOHHOOOOOO!!!

So, if I do not get a chance to log on tomorrow, I will everyone a very happy and very safe New Year. May the Goddess bless everyone with prosperity, good health, much peace and happiness as I know that there are a few who read this that need some peace finally in their lives. I know I have not touched base with many of you, for one reason or another, but know that you are in my hearts and my prayers each and every day.
