Wednesday, Wednesday, I Love that Day

on February 27, 2008 - 5:52am

Well, today is the day. Josh's Birthday.


I am banning all negative thoughts today. I am going to live in the moment and enjoy Josh's music all day long.

I only joined FOJG at the end of December and in this two month period, I've seen over $35,000.00 raised in honor a great man. I've seen friendships begun and witnessed an outpouring of kindness and support that I never thought possible.

It's been a growing two months for me.

I have loved Josh's music but really did not know much of the man until I came to FOJG. Now, I know he is not just a singer. He is a great humanitarian as well. Okay, he's goofy too but that just adds to his charm.

I can honestly say:

I am proud to be a Grobanite!!!

Tuesdays are almost as bad as Mondays

on February 26, 2008 - 3:36pm

Today seems to be blah day. The only real exciting happening is Josh's B'day tomorrow.

Does anyone else have a brother that just hasn't grown up to the point that he has stopped teasing you. My brother is unstoppable. He only does it to me because he knows it bothers me. He likes the way he hurts me. I don't want to go down to his level but I really want to act out. I know I'm acting like a 2 year old.

Anywho, I think I'm going to plug my Ipod in and listen to Josh and get calm.

Thursday -- One Step Closer to Friday

on February 21, 2008 - 4:50pm

I may have had Monday off but this week has been very taxing. My husband's uncle passed on Sunday down in Florida and he was transported up here for the funeral on Wednesday, which was quite a long time because my husband is Jewish. I have never been to a Jewish funeral and while I was sad that Uncle Arthur passed, I was also very intrigued by the whole experience. I can also say that I really don't want to attend another funeral for a while.

My father-in-law came up for the funeral as well and he does not look good. He has Parkinsons and has the beginnings of dementia. Poppy is one of the sweetest men you can ever meet. When I met him and Uncle Arthur for the first time, they both told me that if Ira treats me bad to call them and they'll straighten him out. I love those two men.

Uncle Arthur, I salute you with all my love.

I was back in work today and I don't think they like my afternoon part-timer who came in on Wednesday to fill in for me. I say this because my chair and my desk were full of files and things to do. I really don't mind except that I had a hard time staying awake today. I'm just glad it is Thursday.

On a good note, I ordered the Internet only edition of Awake!! I can't wait to get that. I love Josh's voice. He brings calm and beauty with each note he sings.I am very proud to be a Josh Groban fan.
Can he understand the depth to which his music affects his fans?

I imagine that should I every be lucky to meet him, I could say something more than "Thank you"

Thank you, Josh, for filling my heart with joy, peace and love. Your voice touches my very soul.

I think I'll wake up my husband and tell him I Love Him.

Night all!!

Today is a really good day!! I finished treatment finally!!!!! I know it was only five days but it feels good not to put on a hospital gown and have radiation shot in your system.

It is also a good day because I don't have to work on Monday..HOORAY!!!!!!!! The start of a three day is exactly what I need.

A little over an hour till Celine Dion's special with (SIGH) Josh!! Does he may you sign too?

Tomorrow is a day of errands. Okay it wouldn't be so much but I accidentally sat on my glasses and killed them. They are dead. They are now non-glasses. So it's back to the eye doctor for another pair. ARGH!!!!!!!

The good part of the errands is we are booking our vacation to Punta Cana tomorrow. On May 19 we'll be on our way to sun, sand and pool bars. I'll take a Rum Punch please.

Well until tomorrow...

Happy Valentine's Day

on February 14, 2008 - 3:57pm

Happy Valentine's Day!!! I was very surprised at work this morning when the UPS man came in with a delivery from ProFlowers and they were for me. Ira, my husband, sent me a dozen red roses. He's so sweet. My boss offered me $50.00 for my roses because he didn't want to spend the money for flowers on Valentine's Day. I told him NO!!

I have made my husband a special dinner tonight -- Shrimp and Scallop Scampi with Angel Hair Pasta. He loves it and I don't make it as often as he would like. We're waiting on dessert for a little. I've made a strawberry shortcake and after dessert we'll have more dessert..nudge,nudge, wink wink, know what I mean...LOL

This week has been pretty good considering my treatments. I'm tired but it doesn't seem to be as bad as the first time. I imagine by the weekend it'll catch up to me.

Well, let me go. Hubby is calling.

Have a Great Grobie Valentine's Day!!!!
