Is it tomorrow yet?

We’re just going to forget (or just move past) the miserable work day that was this day.  This evening, on the other hand, was perfect.  An evening with my girlfriends at the Working Women of Tampa Bay Think Pink shopping event and now, I’m baking.  First things first, I was dreading going to an event tonight – especially after the day I had but as usual, my friends bring out the best in me.  Diane gets a special shout-out for always being such a great cheerleader for me.  So, tonight’s blog is dedicated to her.  She cheers me up, talks me up and kicks me in the ass just when I need it.  Thank you, Dinie.  A sip of wine.  “Window” shopping.  A mini-chair massage…aaahhh.  And a new Costco membership.

Next, baking.  I found the most delightful website that has the most delicious peanut-butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.  Oh yes.  They are the perfect mouthful.  The Brown-Eyed Baker.  A shout out to her, too.  Thank you for this recipe – it has become my “go-to” for sweet gifts to sweet people.  A pot-luck at my husband’s work.  A dessert for the Guardian ad Litem Volunteer Holiday party.  And a few for the Friday night “Board Meeting.”

Thank you to all my friends who reached out to me after reading today’s earlier blog.  You all are so much of what I am grateful for in my life.  Moving forward, moving on and focusing on positive things……”it will attract positive things.”  Thanks again, Diane.

Is it tomorrow yet?  I’m ready for a brand new day.


The flood gates.

Lately, I have felt like I have developed A.D.D. – if it’s not getting organized with the new responsibilities at work, it’s trying to move forward with my new personal business, or it’s trying to figure out what the freaking Zumba schedule is in Tampa, or it’s trying to stay on top of the various projects at Voices for Children…..there just do not seem to be enough hours in the day, or enough energy in my body to keep up!  But I am not going to complain.  I am grateful that the universe received my catalog order and God heard my prayers.   It’s a bit chaotic right now but it’s nothing that a few hours of organizing and checklists can’t fix!  Even as I write this blog, my mind is in 50 different directions…, a word to the wise: if you’re clear about what you want, it’s your responsibility to act on opportunities as they present themselves to you – just be prepared for the flood gates to open!  Over and out.
