With me around there are hardly any dull moment. Smiles are what I like to see, laughter is what I like to hear and Hugs & kisses are what I like to feel.Sometimes it seems like I have so much going on all at once. No matter what I always remain smiling because the Lord watches over me.

More babble

Last night the time changed. I went up an hour and now it gets dark later. The weather is getting a tad bit warmer and I am getting ready. I get so excited at the thought of spring coming. I am aware that March is a fickle month. It can be warn weather one day then a snow storm the next. But it doesn't matter because I still know that this month represents the beginning of the end of winter.

My home improvements are coming along quite nicely. I just put up new cutains in the dining room. I brought a new dining room set a few days ago. Unfortunately it won't be in stock until the middle of the month. That's a bummer especially because the place I brought it from usually can deliver the furniture the same day or the next day, but of course I had to get a set that wasn't available right away. I hate waiting for it. I'm so excited about finally finding a set that I really liked, and me and my daughter agreed on. So any way today I put up the new curtains, cleaned the chandelier, and vacuumed the floor, and put up the clock. So now all thats' missing is that dam table. Oh well, like they say, patience is a virtue. Then I talked to my daddy about tiling the porch. So he is going to help me do that. Then I have the guy on speed dial who is going to carpet the floors. I just have to get my money right before I can do that. I'm about to go on vacation, so after I get back I will work on that.

Speaking of vacation.....I'm going to Missouri for easter. Why Missouri you ask. My brother is there. He has a really big house there, so we decided to go to his house for easter. I believe I will have a good time but sometimes family gatherings start to irk my nerves after a while. I hate to say that because it's not nice. Don't get me wrong, I'm very family oriented but sometimes I like to be oriented from a distance. But I promised my brother I would be there so I'm going. I got half a mind to just send my daughter and my sister together and just stay home to enjoy my house all by my lonesome.

I callled "R" the other day and I was telling him about my plans to go to Missouri. I just casually mentioned that I had to figure out what to do with the dog. I told him that the kennel near me charges $26 a day. I'm not to thrilled about paying that kind of money to house my dog. He suggested that he take care of the dog. He said he would look in on her or he would bring her home with him. WTF!! This man barely wants anything to do with me but he has no problem taking care of my dog for 6 days. Are you freakin kiddin me?! Whatever. I'm going to let him do it because at least I won't have to worry about her. Plus I know he really loves that stupid dog. I was ready to get rid of her in the summer and at first he was looking for someone to take her then he stopped looking and told me we need to keep her because she really is a good dog. But it's mighty funny that when he decided we were moving to fast and I went back home the freakin dog went back home with me. But I know that he really works too much to have a dog. That's why he got rid of his 2 dogs when him and his wife split up because he didn't really have the time to take care of them by himself. Anyway....

Overall I'm feeling quite blessed these days. Life has just been kinda easy breasy. My daughter is about to start working and I love it. I started my new job already, but I'm still at my other job too. I like being able to work both places because sometimes you get tired of the same ole thing. And eventhough I'm working 2 jobs I still have plenty of time to myself because of how the schedule works out. So everyone at my house will be working and doing their own thing. My little sister will be leaving for college in July. I'm very much looking forward to that for several different reasons. I just don't have any complaints. I do wish things were different between me and "R" but it's no somethng that I'm stressed about. How can I be stressed about with spring and summer right around the corner?

I think that "R" agreeing to watch the dog for you means that there is still a chance there. It might be small, but he wanted to slow things down right?

I am usually really good at figuring men out. They are not that complicated but this man is an enigma wrapped up in a puzzle! He is driving me crazy.
