Is this week over with?

OMG, is this week over with? I swear this is the longest week ever! It's been a strange week and I'm ready for Friday! Thank God it's Friday eve :)

I've had a utterly busy day starting from 5:15 am until 8:00 pm. I was in the go go go mode. I knew it was going to be a rough day...or maybe, I just set myself up for a rough day by my attitude. I forgot to set the alarm this morning so luckily, I woke up at 5:15. We scramble to the gym and I was not feeling it today. My Ipod was dead, my legs were not wanting to move, and I was tired. I make it to work, race into a 8:30 meeting and then it's non-stop sessions for the morning. A co-worker drove me to one meeting and my mind was a blur from the non-stop meetings I had earlier. Then after the meeting, we had to grab lunch because I forgot mine at home. We ended up going through the Arby's drive through and I asked for a grilled chicken sandwich without mayo. They gave me a crispy...argh. Luckily, I said no mayo but it was still 9 points. Then none stop sessions until 5:15 pm. Then the commute home was awful. I almost got into an accident because some jerk decided to pass and missed me by inches. I was quite shaken. Sucks. So I'm using visualization tonight. This is what makes me happy: It made me smile. That's my baby. I got my flip video from Big Lots and it is awesome. I can't wait until I have some more stuff to post.

I think listening to NPR has also made me depressed a little bit. It's hard times out there right now and it seems like there is nothing too positive in the news right now. People are losing jobs left and right. It's so unsettling. I was less than thrilled to know that my 401K lost about $32K this year...and I'm sure it's continuing to shrink in size. It took me almost 8 years to get where I was, now I have the same amount of money as I had in 2005. I only have a 401 type of savings at my current job. We don't pay into the social security system. I know it will rebound but home much more can I lose? Ah, retirement is another 30 years out if I make it but I highly doubt if I will have the money in the account like they predicted. Oh,'s just money. I got my health, my husband, and a good job which is totally priceless! I will be in a better mood tomorrow, I promise! Take care all-Kellie

Our dog heard your high pitched voice and was tilting his head to the side like, "what is that?" If he only could have seen the cat, he would have lost it! He hates cats, but yours is adorable.
