What Will I Write About Today?

I’ve been thinking about that all day. I just can’t seem to come up with something. So, I’m going to start typing until something comes out of it.

Today was the first day of summer holidays. What in the world am I going to do with these kids for the next two months!

I’m going to have to come up with some sort of a schedule to go by. I can’t spend 8-10 hours a day working now that they are home. But at the same time, I have to complete my orders. So, what I have to do is find balance.

It was a good day, though. We went clothes shopping this morning which was fun. Then they played in the pool all afternoon while I worked. It worked out really well, actually. I was able to have a solid 2 hours of non inturrupted work. I’m actually almost caught up!

Well, I don’t think that was very interesting reading, but that’s all I’ve got for now. Soon, I’ll be able to have  a 200 sales celebration. That will be fun!

Well, It’s Official

I now only have one child in public school.

Seriously, when did this happen? When did my little baby girl grow up and become such a lovely young lady?

Last night was her Grade 8 graduation ceremony. I have pics, but they’re not downloaded yet. I’ll share later.

It was a really nice ceremony. And she brought home 4 awards!

The Grade 8 Pentecostal Achievement Award (which came with a $100 cheque too!)

The Grade 8 Language Arts award

The Grade 8 Female Athelete of the Year

And she recieved an award for graduating with honours.

I’m so proud of her!

Like I said earlier, I’ll be back later with pics to share. And a video. They made a very lovely slideshow of the graduates, before and after pics. I cried. A lot! LOL!

A Surprise

I am a regular visitor to LOL Cats. It’s a fantastic way to start my day. I get a little giggle (or sometimes an outright laugh!) and it gets my day off to a happy start.

As usual, I clicked on the link in my bookmarks and went, expecting to see the normal cuteness and hard to read captions that I have come to love.

Instead I found this:


and I almost cried.

I know it’s supposed to be funny, but that is one of the most touching pictures I’ve seen in so long.

Any kind of natural disaster is awful. Beyond horrific. The human toll is amazingly high. We lose lives, property, possessions. The cost is more than we can count sometimes.

Not often do we think about the effects on the pets that trapped in these areas as well.

Kudo’s to this man and all those like him who rescue not only the people who are affected, but the beloved pets as well.

I’m In A Bad Mood

Why? I’m not sure.

It could be the horrid umpire-ing (is that actually a word?) at my daughter’s baseball game that caused them to lose.

It could be the fact that my house is a mess and no one seems to care but me. Everyone came home from the game, sat down to either watch tv or sleep in a chair while I did all the work.

It could be the fact that I can’t hear the tv over my husband’s snoring.

It could be that I’m just simply in a bad mood.

Whatever it is, the fact remains, I’m grumpy. Really, really grumpy.

What am I going to do about it, that’s the big question. I have two choices. I can either wallow in my misery, or do something to change it. But what?

I think ice cream. Or chocolate. Either one would work.

I’m leaning towards ice cream.

I’ll be back.

To Blog, Or Not To Blog..

I decided to blog.

Why, you ask? I’m not really sure. I find that more and more I’m needing a place to get my thoughts out of my head. A place to rant when I need to, share exciting happenings when I need to. A place I can call my very own.

Who knows, it might end up being boring to the average person. But this blog will be mine. My very own space on the web to talk to myself. And hopefully a few others too.

Stop by later. You never know what you might find!
