My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

goals and answers

About the boogie woogie piano, I've played the piano all my life (minus the first 3 years) and I have neither the talent nor the dedication to practicing to be able to play like that guy does...that is a true gift.

on the tooth issue...obviously the superglue didn't work....sigh. It's his 5th tooth and they cost the tooth fairy a dollar a piece. Which, I agree is a pretty penny. The funniest thing is that he has no idea what to do with that dollar so after a couple days it finds its way (back) into Dad's wallet. He's just not getting the whole money thing yet. :-)

Last week's goals were:
1) make it through the week without crying at work again.
2) quilt 3 more diamonds.
3) get the giveaway winners' stuff in the mail

1) done, but just barely. There was at least once I had to call Subvet so he could talk me down off the ceiling.

2) I got 2 1/2 done. Haven't yet finished that 3rd. That brings our total to 11 done and 7 to go....moving along.

3) dammit.

For next week.
1) make a massive mailing
2) quilt 2 more diamonds and finish the half quilted one.
3) exercise at least once
4) call and make all the appointments that are accumulating on my todo list.
5) replenish my snuggleometer.

and you? what's your goal for this week?

This week is funky... Tuesday felt like Friday, then Wednesday felt like it Friday yet?
I'm trying to prep for vacation-stop paper and mail, along with running to the store for a few last minute items and get one more box together to ship to a soldier...better get it all done by Friday!
Good job this week!!!!

What a great idea for a post. Goal setting always works wonders for me.

My goal - walk more (4 times), Stay on my diet and practice karate (3 times in addition to class) and bring my lunch to work 3 days.

Good job on your goals. My goal is to find an inflatable bed so I can sleep in the basement tonight!

Well, you listed your goals so that a great start! Sounds like work is tough, tho!

Also get estimates on taking two huge oak trees down before hurricane season gets here.

Try to stay out of the fetal position.
