Friday, March 02, 2007

I'm still alive. I've been off work since Tuesday afternoon. What have I been doing you may ask? Well, we started Saturday "flipping" the kitchen. In the process of completing the project. Since Tony went to the doctor on Monday and was diagnosed with pneumonia, I've been doing alot of the project myself.

I haven't had much time to think of what I would write on my blog, so for this Friday I'm sharing something from my e-mail files.

Dixie, I give you a 44/45. I could not agree with phone calls at midnight. Nothing good comes out of it, my wife gets mad if it's my girlfriend, and I get made if it's anybody else.

Great grouping of sweet things!

Something I could put on the list is moving my cat off the bed and finding the warm spot when I crawl in bed.

Oh another one....the dog warms the rug in front on my bathroom mirror. Standing right there after getting out of the shower is sweet!

I love my pets!

Smiles are precious, even more if your day ain't so great. Thanks for revisiting this one, Dix. Love ya.

35. Making eye contact with a cute stranger.

Being brain-dead tired, crawling into bed alone, and waking up some time later, wrapped in the arms of the one you love and who loves you.

**contented sigh**

These are all great things that make me feel terrific but I particularly like #26! Especially considering that I am NOT a morning person!


Blogger Sarge Charlie said ... (3/09/2007 7:31 PM) :

Blogger Mimi Lenox said ... (3/10/2007 5:22 PM) : 

Love 'em all!

Please email Mimi if you'd be interested in participating in BlogBlast for Peace again this year. I'd love to have someone with connections to other military families to spread the word. Hope you can help.
Praying for your son and his journeys...
