Having one of those days....

It started out as a good day and I kept promising myself it would be a good day but one or more things got in the way.

It was not anyone's fault, it just happened.

Here and there things just popped up that seemed to try to keep me down. I won't bore anyone with the details.

I'll be just fine tomorrow, but earlier I had an alone moment-not by choice, but I just felt alone, utterly alone.

I prayed for someone to barge in on my alone-ness to give me that ever elusive all encompassing hug and either physically or verbally assure me that everything will be ok.

It has been a long time since I have felt that everthing will be ok-a long time- and while laughing at myself through the tears I thought how silly to think it would be that easy that just a hug or a few words would reassure me.

Then I laughed and cried some more because I realized it WOULD be that easy!

Tax Time

I finally got my taxes done, and after some fiddling went from owing to getting money back-I was sweating there for a bit!

I had a good Valentines day, sat around the house, did some work and then watched TV. I watched American Idol which I am hooked on now for some unknown reason and the Price is Right Million Dollar Spectacular.

I love that show and just about any game show. For no other reason than I love to see people win stuff. It is addicting. I root for them, cheer for them and tonight on the Price is Right there was one poor girl who lost the chance to win not 1 but 3 cars and blew it because she listened to the audience-but later she won the showcase showdown that included a 2006 Cadillac.

Wheel of Fortune is another favorite of mine. I root for them as well and loved it last week on Sweethearts week when a couple won the $100 grand at the last.

I almost had a fit on thursday when they displayed the spin ID for a home watcher to win-I have had my spin ID since they first started doing them and watch all the time. I only know my first 2 letters on my spin ID and vaguely the rest with a 109 somewhere in there. It was a trip to Jamaica and they showed the spin ID that had my 2 first letters and some 0's and a 109 in there. It was so close, but for a few seconds scrambling to find my sticky note with my spin ID on there I was excited.

Everyone in the house was looking at me like I had lost a marble or two! Kinda the same way when I got the email for the Ipod video I won-I let out a hoot and maybe a holler and everyone came running thinking I was having a coniption!

Yes I was a faithful watcher of Who wants to be a millionaire for a long time, I still try to catch it-there was a lady on the other day from my city and she won quite a bit. I also have gotten into Deal or No Deal.

Yep, give me a game show and I'll root for all to win!

I hope everyone has a great week.

Another big win!

I got an email today stating:

Congratulations on behalf of Dog Show USA presented by Purina and brought to you by NBC Digital Studios. Pending eligibility verification you have won a black 30GB video iPod from the Dog Show USA voting sweepstakes-ARV $299.00!

I am so excited, I have been wanting one of these for a long time.

I just have to return a notarized affadavit.

My yearly total is now up to $562 and my overal since 11/31/05 is 680.

I haven't been up to a lot lately, I plan on starting some work around the house, some painting, spring cleaning etc.

Hope everyone is having a great week :)
