An Old Dog Can Learn New Tricks

Oh by the way I am official all better!! At my older job (now that is funny) get it...not my old job (because I just changed jobs), but at my old...old job...I crack myself up. Anyways I was the Share Point Administrator at my old, old job and I learned on my own how to do all the web pages for all the branches (I was so proud of myself). At this new job I have already been given...UGH...duties, you know the ones I am talking about, the ones you hate, and the ones they can't get anybody to do right so when the next new person comes along they decided...let's see if Mickie can do it? Okay, maybe not exactly like that, but pretty much. So they gave me the most boring job in the whole wide world to do and it is not a good thing for the ADHD kid to have, but I am muddling through...but you know me.

I did the UGH job (a work in progress) and all the while revamped there web page (still a work in progress) and I have earned huge brownie points. I even got told today, "How did we survive without?" Do they know that it was not my idea to "Merge" and if I had my way I would be back where I used to be? Guess not, oh well, love working on web pages and I created their Thanksgiving Sign-up page with pictures and everything.

Of course now they want me to do all their division pages (which is okay). No, I still have to do the UGH job, but at least I have some relief here and there.

Sick...Sick...Oh poor, poor Me

This is day 4 of being soooo sick!!! Is there any help? I could use a magic pill....UGH!!!

The Great Family Historian

My mother is such a great historian. I love to talk to her about her family. We are lucky because we have had ancestors who kept books and kept their ancestry for us this generation to see. Not only that, but I love my mothers stories. I wish she would write a book, it would be so awsome. She would have made a great Historian...what do I mean...she is a great Historian. I love that fact that she keeps all those memories of her family going, not only that but recently she was able to go on the computer and go all the way back on her dad's side. How amazing is that, here is a woman who doesn't know that much about computers but has pushed herself to learn on her own how to get information. She never knew anything about her dad's side but now she does, and now I do to.

She is such an intelligent woman. I am so lucky to have a mom that has given me the gift of family, facts and all the history behind ours. My mom is the Greatest Historian I know...till James graduates (maybe he got that from her).

Rob is so Great

I have such a great husband. Sunday, on our way to church I spilled coffee (splattered) all over my white pants (yep I said white). He said just use one of your tide pens, and I said thats okay, I used up my last one. Even though I told him it didn't bother me, I played with the spots and dabbed at my pants. He pulled into a supermarket a little while after and I asked him what he was doing, you see I thought he was going to get donuts or something for church. When he came back out to the car, he handed me a tide pen...that is true love. My husband loves me!

Monsters-In-Law

Okay, have you heard of this new show they are going to have on (reality) it is all about monsters-in-law. In the previews all you see is hate, yelling and screaming. Every time we see the trailers for the show, me and Rob look at each other and say how lucky we are we have the in-laws we have. Rob said it is so great that my mom has always been so supportive and wonderfully nice to him. I said I was so lucky that Bill and Margaret love me and make me feel their love every time they talk to me. WE ARE SO LUCKY!! God Blessed us with great in-laws.

SICK

I am sick...so sick, not just a little sick, I have the flu....stomach for 3 days now, and if it lasts one more day I most certainly will be dead.

Happy Birthday to Me

Yesterday was my birthday...49 years old. A big thank you to my Mom and Margaret and Bill for the birthday dollars, I already spent it on my nice running shoes (wide), sometimes I have to pay extra because of my big fat foot, and of course I got pink (my favorite color). Christina got me flowers (they were beautiful). I got a phone call from everyone...except Chris, but he usually forgets. My brother even called, that made my day. Rob and the boys took me out to eat, that was really nice.

It seems on my birthday I revert back to a child, my mom always made birthday's a big deal, and I got to be queen for the day, we didn't have big elaborate parties, just the family, but mom would go to this great bakery shop and would order me my favorite cake. Chocolate!!! It was chocolate cake, with chocolate icing and chocolate bars all around it, I don't think anybody liked it it but me, but maybe that was my plan to get the whole cake all to myself. I always felt very special. For some reason when you get older it is just not the same...next year I think I am going home so my mommy can spoil me.

Worry, worry, worry and more worry

I know I have not been keeping up with the blog thing, but hey I have been busy:

New Job
House tenting
Worrying about my kids
Worrying about my grandkids
Worrying about my husband
Worrying about my mom
Worrying about my in-laws
Worrying about money, money and yes we always come back to the money thing

I really don't get it either. God always gives me just enough...what I need, and a lot of times, a little bit more than I need. Everyday I place all my burdens at his feet (and it is a big pile), and by the time evening comes it seems I have piled it back where it was to begin with. How does this happen? I think God (everyday) is smiling down at me and shaking his head. He probably tells the angels,"That there, Dee, she just keeps complicating things, oh she listens to me and hand things over to me, but just when I start taking care of it for her, she snatches it all right back, like clock work mind you, she is a funny creation that one". Yep, I know that is what he is saying and he is still patient with me, every minute, every hour, he waits...for me. I love my God.
