Good Friday

on April 6, 2007 - 7:58am

Happy Good Friday to all of you. To my Christian friends out there; this is my favorite holiday of the year. A gentle reminder of why we need not be afraid - we are forgiven - through HIS death and dying and LOVE THAT SURPASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING.

OK................so it's 14 degrees here with a wind chill of ZERO this morning. All the beautiful tulips that popped up so happy last week are plopped right back down 'cause they got BIT :( Kinda sad.

I'm still sick - 2 weeks tomorrow.....maybe I should get myself to the doc. I talked to a dear friend of mine last night - she went in and found out she had sinus infection, ear infection and bronchitis - and I was with her the weekend I caught this crap. Ugh! Next week we travel to Branson, MO for my daughters Show Choir - if I'm not better on Monday, I'll go get on some meds! Just found out my family doctor is MOVING AWAY......oh my gosh - he has been our doc for 20 years - brought both of my kids into the world!! That means a great deal to me....I'll miss him.

Well, I've got some major running to do before church - better get a move on.

Have a great day everyone!

Winter is BACK................Ugh

on April 3, 2007 - 6:38am

We're having a spring snow! Imagine that in Minnesota - no surprise. I love the beauty of it, but it's so COLD today. Last Monday it was near 80 and today it's 28...burrrrrr. I must be having a relapse of my chest cold too. A good day to stay in.

I fell asleep last night before catching Jimmy Kimmel Live. I'm just bummed - what did Josh sing? Was the interview fun? Can someone let me know? PLEASE! Tonight I'm staying home from a meeting to watch him on Dancing with the Stars! Can't wait!

Going to crawl back into bed to warm up and catch up on some reading........maybe I'll be back later......have a WONDERFUL DAY everyone!

My Baby's 17

on March 29, 2007 - 5:18am

WOW - my daughter Hannah is 17 today. I'm amazed at how fast the time has gone. Didn't I just bring her home from the hospital? She's beautiful, smart, and gifted! She can sing.......and dance! JOSH CAN YOU HERE ME? I WANT HER TO SING WITH YOU!!!! OK, so that's "my" birthday wish, not hers necessarily.

It's a dreary kind of day here; rainy and chilly - but it IS spring and the birds have migrated back and are making music in my backyard! Ahhh......new life! A new day! Aren't we blessed to start new every morning? My mother (who died of cancer 23 years ago when I was only 20) always used to tell me, "Go to sleep, say your prayers, tomorrow is a new day." As I'm grown and have my own children, I know what she meant. Of course as a teenager I thought "whatever".

I've had a terrible chest cold all week - thought I was going to "die" yesterday (well, not really, but felt like "you know what") and today I'm feeling human again. I thought about Josh and how he would handle a cold like that out on the road - I suppose he'd have to cancel. Oh boy - that would be tragic. I'd be heartbroken. He must do something to keep himself healthy; 'cause the schedule he's keeping.....ugh.....I guess he's young and vivacious and has tons of energy. Lucky for US :)

WOW - I've rambled on.........I often wonder if anybody finds me interesting or if I'm just writing my thoughts to get them out of my head so I can be on to new things. I don't get on the boards very much so do all of my cooresponding here. I have a select few grobie friends that I try to keep in touch with on their blogs....hope they appreciate my comments!

Well, since I've missed some of "life" this week, I better get something done in my office today. I have customers to call to introduce new spring color to - that's always fun! Happy Thursday to all of you..........

What did I catch?

on March 26, 2007 - 4:48pm

Oh dear, it was like 75 degrees here today and I couldn't even get out of bed to enjoy it. I tried to stand out on my deck for awhile (our patio furniture isn't set out yet from the winter so I had no place to sit) but my knees felt like jello. Over the weekend, some kind of virus or something attacked my chest. Usually I start with a head cold that lands in my chest but not this time - BAM! It hit! I had a 101 temp this morning - sure knocked me for a loop. I'm even more sick I missed out on a gorgeous day. Oh well, I'll soon be better and spring is just beginning :)

I attended our Mary Kay Career Conference this weekend - what a blast! 2,000 ladies with dreams and goals and positive attitudes - can't beat a weekend like that!

Well, better go lie back down -I don't have time to be sick - I have a busy week! Happy Monday to all my grobie friends!

Lost Hope

on March 22, 2007 - 11:46am

Do you ever have days when you've just lost hope in people? I know some of this is just me having a bad day, but people never cease to amaze me. Isn't it easier to smile than frown? Say a simple hello than to turn away? To just be kind with words and not so rude and acting like you're the only one with a busy life? Ugh!

Then..........I'm so excited to see Josh in August and when I emailed my friend who went to the concert with me the first time and she acted like it was going to be an infrigment on "her time"! Oh well, I'll get over it; and maybe I'm "obsessed" with his music; but I was really disappointed. So, I emailed more friends and family and maybe I'll just go ALONE. I'd be fine with that - just "me and Josh time".........

I try to keep these blogs positive so I don't bring all of you down........so I apologize - I just had to get it off my chest. My heart is heavy today. I'll just look forward to AUGUST 10TH - it won't come soon enough.
