I feel so blah?

Could it be the prospect of sinking even more money into our lemon of a van????? I'm thinkin' so! Why is it when you think you've got a plan to get ahead of the game something sticks a stick in the spokes of life and you go splat on the road????

OH ya and Ty informed me that the toilet is leaking pee!! LOL It's not pee but I think maybe we might need a new seal, my husband was a plumber for years, how long do you think it'll take him to fix this?

Wow am I a ray of sunshine today or what???

We got my nephew's bday tonight(Ty is staying over) and my other nephew is supposed to be staying over at our house with JOsh.

I was supposed to go for groc this morn and for the bday gift, think I'll just give him cash. What 9yo boy doesn't like cash? Right? I hate giving cash! Hopefully groc will be tomorrow morning. Mark is supposed to call the dolt that originally put the starter in so hopefully he'll fix his mistake today, he'll probably say that it wasn't due to his work but something else caused the problem!!!!

OK enough bi!ching from me, think I'll quit while I'm ahead.

Good thing, no babysitting today. Both my niece and SIL are sick.

Morning Tracy! I hear's kind of a blah day in our neck of the woods too. I know what you mean about saving money....hope it doesn't cost too much to fix the van.

About the birthday gift....DH has a 9 year old Godson...we sent him money for his birthday this year....I ran out of ideas! I think 9 is a good age to give money, they usually have things in mind that they would like to buy. I know that I like getting money as a gift (not from DH, of course,but from grandparents!

Hope you get that toilet fixed!!!

Have a *~*~good*~*~ day!

Hugs Tracy. I hope your day gets better. I absolutely hate car problems--they cost a fortune and are always unexpected and we need our cars so we always have to go ahead and spend the money. I feel for you! The one good thing is that you don't have to spend money on a plumber too--you just may have to wait! have a great weekend. Judy

Cheer up hon!

Easier said than done, I know! Life is constantly throwing us curve can't let it get to you, or you'll drive yourself insane. How about going for a spin on your exercise thingamajiggy?? That might help lift your spirits.

I know the weather sure isn't helping any, is it? Hmmm, maybe you can take the evening off and do something for yourself tonight, even if it's just in the bath with a glass of wine and book.

Hope you get to feeling better soon, Toota!
