Monday Morning after a long night of no sleep(2 in a row)

1. Looked at bottle of ambien and said, nah, I don't want to feel bad in the morning.
2. Convinced myself that sleep was only for the normal people anyways.
3. Annoyed son who was a bit tipsy who kept telling me I should be asleep, sat on his legs and he said I was breaking them, sang him a tune or two and he told me I don't sound right and I was messing with him after he drank too much vodka..hmmmmm, I wanted to kick his behind..good thing he is grown.
4. Annoyed kitty by brushing his hair while he was asleep..he tried to enjoy it, but he wanted to sleep, so he ran to my mom's room.
5. Finished a book.
6. Played on another forum until I grew bored.
7. Dusted...I hate this chore.
8. Went outside to enjoy the weather as it was a bit cooler last night.
9. Finally checked emails at about 5am and Karen sent me a teriffic recipe..
10. Denny sent me 2 and he seems pretty sad...I have to quit feeling sorry for him.  I did email him back trying to cheer him up.  He responded as he is going back to the UK for a bit next week.
11. Came back over to this forum to meddle a few folks.
12. And now it is U!  LOL
I am with Karen on this one...I hope you have not found any brooks who babble on any or any you wish to push your wife into...hehe  You are loved!!  Ciao Baby!

this evening and this weeks schedule in case i get a bit too tired...(okay, I can only hope.)

1) boss was not happy with me about overtime..I told her Mark(bosses boss)approved it and I have to do the project. It felt good to see her face as if she could choke me...lol
2)Memphis logins...aagghh! Okay, finally got in, and the system took so long to do less than 100 tonight...unbelievable!
3)Magnum(kid)getting serious about some girl(oh, no, not him too! Love bug has bit him I think!)
4)Off tomorrow, going in for a bit in the evening when everyone is off computers to work a couple of hours.
5)woman from new job called...I am working this overtime Wednesday and Thursday I will go in after my job ends at 7pm, from 8-2am and then Friday after Nates Birthday Bash!  Saturday if I have OT(which I probably will)I will work it, then go to new job and work until 2am again. Sunday maybe new job in the morning and after my fulltime job at 5pm then go in again.  We will see.
6) Now your head will be confused with trying to figure out my schedule hehe I will move right on...cooked cornish hen and asparagus...it was good!
7)meddling Karen and Helena as usual daily!
8)breathing!

Your time....8:48AM!

1.NS made top 5 on podcast nominations.
2.Need lots of votes from July-28th to Aug. 11th
3.Bad news you dont get back til about then!
4.Good news,at least you will be back!
5.dabbled in a bit of poetic licence in the poetry thread.
6.added more to your combo, but not much as my combos are lacking imagination today.
7.We sang its a small world in two languages today at school, and then we made the world!
8.Kids made dinner for mom as I had late staff meeting!
9.The weather was extrordinary again today.
10.Wanted to be home today and just post and relax!
11.Wondering if they have recovered wifey from babbling brook yet!
12.Had a new little girl at school today so very sweet. She is a very cute shy little hispanic girl with beautiful brown eyes who we thought did not speak at all.This was her third day, not a peep from her mouth except to cry when her mom left on first day! I have done my best to speak to her and comfort her into the school. I have held her at rest and in the yard as she fell asleep in my arms and would not go with another teacher. So as she is running out the gate with mom today. She turned to the fence and grabbed the chain links and yelled out to me, "Teacher! I love you!" My heart just melted. Oh my God, I love children! The only thing she has said in the whole time she has attended. Very Clear, and very good English! I was so worried about her, Bless her little heart! Ohhh, There are so many kinds of love out there and I am such a sucker for a cute face!


Anyway overall great day, but am very tired, hoping your day was great!!!.....hugs Karen

Neil while you were away a large moth fell into my toilet, i thought about saving it but in the end decided to flush it.

But to my amazement it survived what must be the  moths equivalent of niagara falls and was still flapping about on the surface  after the water had stopped flowing. I then had a quick re-think and decided that as this moth had survived the torrent of water trying to push it round the U bend that this moth was special and as such deserved a second chance of life.:)

I didnt want to put my hand into the water to fish it out so i decided to use the loo brush ,however i pressed to firmly against the moth and killed it.:(

I know, its sad. i totally agree with you  but please wipe away your tears and help me ,their must be moral too this story but i just cant think of one so i'm hoping you or someone else will for me.

 Please dont let this poor innocent moths death be for nothing, their must be a moral something which i /we can pass on to our grandchildren.

By the way i called him fred, i thought that was rather apt as it rhymes with dead.:D


PS .I've now been bad and sad:)
Michael

Dear Neil...hmmm, I am beginning to wonder about Michael...bless his heart!

1)Long flipping day!!!!  Just 2 of us running one office...I had to close my office down.
2)Did not finish all of my activities...(which is a pet peeve of mine)
3)Bossy at all day meeting and had to return to office at 4:30pm...geez,why bother?  
4)Bossy came in with accusatory tone and lied on me about Laura(another marketing person)and said she told me my mistakes...I WAS PISSED!!!  She knew it as she hear me say, whatever??I said fine I will just send her an email and see what her freaking problem is and ask her to send me an excel report of "all my mistakes" hmmmm, 5 minutes later bossy's tone changed and suddenly there were no mistakes...ISN'T THAT JUST AMAZING?(maybe you can detect a bit of sarcasm in my tone in typing here)
5. Went to 2nd job, will be working 7 nights a week from 10-2am no life for at least 3 weeks...then it will be Wed and Thurs off and 9:30pm until 1:30am...I like these hours better...maybe sooner..we will see.  Lady is okay, but will watch her as she yaks about co-workers.
6. Son and I had a nice talk tonight....and still no word from my son in Germany tonight...I am making it a point to take lunch at home in case he gets on to IM me..
7. I feel like confucious should say something about the moth in the loo for Michael...like moth in toilet maybe whacked by loo brush!

Good night hon...I pray you have peaceful dreams and plenty of sleep!

Neilsy...time to tell the truth...

1. Morning started out where I belted out a whitney houston tune as Magnum was sleeping...I thought he would appreciate my high pitch early in the morning...hey the cat didn't beg for breakfast once!  I think he was mesmerized by such a sound!  LOL  Okay, probably scared!
2. Ate 2 brownies...mmmmm, had cereal, hamburger, and 2 slices of pizza tonight...
3. scratched kitties stomach...
4. Annoyed with Magnum after having nice chat as I am on the phone and he is bugging me or trying to manipulate me and thought I was weak being on the phone...Not!
5. Karen and Helena have both been cutting up while you are gone and no one has been able to keep them in line...I really have tried...did you see Helena's post about being good?  Unbelievable...lol  Anything to look innocent...tsk, tsk, tsk...

have to run as I am sure there is something constructive I can do...?
