Healing Power of That Voice!!!!

on December 12, 2007 - 5:10pm

OK, I know I'm not saying anything that any Grobie doesn't already know, but man, that guy's voice can make anything better!!!!

On Sunday, I was at my second job, and I have been feeling rather depressed and discouraged over many things. Problems in my marriage, and the fact that Sam has lost his job are the main things driving that. I have a playlist in my IPod of Josh's Christmas songs...not just Noel, but Oh Holy Night & Believe as well. Anyway, I listened to that all day Sunday at work. Little by little throughout the day, I felt better and better, and by the end of the day, I was so happy.

I know Josh's voice doesn't make the problems better. But it certainly helps my outlook!!!! What a gift to all of us.

And Noel is #1 3 weeks in a row!!!! Go J. Gro!!!! You deserve EVERY BIT of success!!! You work your @$$ off!!!! Take time to enjoy it!!!!!

Job hunting.....

on December 5, 2007 - 8:49am

Looking for a job has certainly changed since I ever looked for a job last time. Most of the places where Sam went have 'online' applications. Heck, think of all the gas money we could have saved. ;) Money Sam could spend on a Christmas/Birthday gift for me. hehe I don't think he can afford what I want...even if he could, I don't think he can get Josh under the tree for me. ;) Bummer!!!

I have to get my Christmas cards done today...and I have a couple of gifts to get in the mail today...and I have to pay the bills today, and I'm sitting here goofing off.

Talked to Wyatt a little bit yesterday. I've never really talked to him but a couple of times. Once when he chewed me out for being naughty on the message board. (who me?) and when I won my BSP. He is a funny guy!!!! I asked him a question and he evaded it...so I tried to pin him down today...I'll see what kind of an answer I get from him, if any. hehe

Edit....Sam has a job interview at Office Max tomorrow at 1 pm! Oh, that would be nice if he could get a new job right away!!! Cross your fingers for him!!!

Merry Freakin' Christmas!!! ;)

Well, you can probably tell by the title how I'm feeling. Actually, I love the holidays. And I particularly love Noel, and this time of year in general anyway. But I have an added stress in my life right now that I really don't need.

Sam and I have been having problems anyway. This just adds to my stress in my marriage. Sam lost his job this weekend. Now, I know Walmart SUCKS as far as how they treat their employees, so I'm not entirely surprised that this could happen. But really? you can't go to pee while you're on the clock? I spoke with a friend who has worked for Walmart before, and she said that sounded like Walmart.

Sooooo....he's looking for another job, and we've done some things to cut corners...changed our cell phone plan to a cheaper one, and eliminated all the movie channels on our satellite. I have a call to make to cancel something. I know we can get by, but I am just tired of carrying so much of the weight in our relationship. I mean, I already work 2 jobs, and I already informed him that there will need to be some changes on his part because I'm not going to kill myself to support him like I tried to do when we were first married. I just won't do it.

Anyway, I know things will work out...I just hope he finds something else soon because I don't really want to bear all of the financial burden alone.

Thank God I renewed my FOJG membership in August. ;) Of course, this is not a luxury, it's a necessity!!! ;)

Oh, I just love the holidays!!!!

I found an online website that plays music "you like." www.pandora.com
So...I put in Josh Groban, and they play, not only Josh, but other music similar to Josh. And, I can tell it if I like a song or not and it uses my input to "choose" what they play. Pretty cool, huh?

Tomorrow, all my Grobie friends are heading to New York. I'm still bummed that I couldn't go, but maybe another time. I told Joivana that she needs to say hi to me from GMA, and I would hug the stuffing out of her if she could get Josh to say hi to me. haha. Like that would happen! It would be funny though. I would probably jump out of my skin if it happened! I'll be working anyway, so I'll have to watch it on TIVO. :(

Dang work anyway. I still wish Sam would win that Publisher's Clearinghouse Sweepstakes. I always used to tease him about entering that. I told him he better win soon because I have plans for that money. The first plan is that I quit my job!!! hehe

OOH, Secret Garden's version of YRMU just came on. I don't think I've ever heard it before. I kind of wish Josh had done the second verse too. It's really, really beautiful!!!

I guess Sam and I are going Christmas shopping next Tuesday. I got next Wednesday off so we can go. We will visit his brother and sister-in-law and hopefully I can visit Joivana too. Oh, I hope she takes lots of pics!!!!

And tomorrow we are putting up our tree. Sam has been asking about the tree since the beginning of October. He is so funny!!! Since his family is Jewish, they never had a tree and he gets so excited about it. He's like a little kid!

Nothing else going on. Just hanging out, and I really should do something constructive!!! ;)
