A Few Things That Have Made Me Happy Today:

1. The raging migraine I've been battling for a week seems to have faded today. I didn't even take my morning dose of 'attack-only' meds. Phew. I thought I was going to have to kill something soon.... (if you haven't had a migraine ever, don't judge me).

2. I cleaned out the bedroom. Of everything. So when the workers come (ahem, ahem!), it is ready to be repaired. And know what? This means I am Wonder Woman. Know why? 'Cause I fit everything - and I mean everything - into our much smaller spare bedroom. And the spare bedroom still has room to move, is orderly and tidy. I previously did not think it possible. Props to Papa for teaching me how to streamline. (unless I'm just mis-remembering)

3. I think we're on a path that may actually lead to the workers coming to our house some time in the foreseeable future. That knowledge alone brings relief to my migraine.

4. I happened on to a blog the other day (via one of the dear hubby's geek blogs, no less), called Inspire Me Thursday. It is two artists, young women about my age (yes, I still consider myself young), who simply offer some creative inspiration once a week to anyone who'd like to participate - no competition, no judges, just sharing art. And know what? It is inspiring! These women are inspiring. Their lives resonate with mine (and they have cute kids). And I am enjoying checking out the artists who have participated. Gets me thinking about my jewelry. I just had to pack it all up (see #2), but I need to think about a direction for my jewelry and this is definitely getting me to think.

Unrelated sidenote: having grown up without red M & M's, I find myself afraid of them - that they'll make me sick, not just 'give me cancer' sick, but migraines, for example. No fear of the other colors, but I leave the red M & M's to the very last and then I only eat them begrudgingly. Heheheh...quirks.

The red M & M's should be just fine to eat these days. We never had blue onew or really big ones either and I have no trouble flipping them up into the air manfully aimed to be untouched again as I catch them in gaping mouth and chew them up attentively. As for the quaint task of getting too much into too small a space, your memory is accurate. Mommy can be balmed for the neatness tho'.
I am sorry you are having migraines. They such a PAIN!!!!!!! literally....makes you want to get a new head at WalMart just for the relief.
So you are blogtrotting with artists and they amuse and intrigue you. I wish I had time to go a trotting too.

Wish you were here, just cuz I miss yo guys.

I miss the tan ones.

I miss the tan ones, too! I didn't know you remembered them.

I don;t know how you find the time to write so well but here is a little something

Too much of a good thing is wonderful.

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It's very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

A good web , it has long sought a paper com this blog 2.0

It took me time to learn all the tips, but I absolutely loved the blog post. It proved to be very beneficial to me and I'm persuaded to all of the followers here!

Good site. You definetivly know what you are discussing about here. I am so happy I was able to discover your Blog. I expect to read more great writing from you. Keep up the awesome work

I have been scouting around for this particular insight, thank you! What other sites can you think I should check out? Websites like this are difficult to come across, make sure to continue the great work.

I conceive this site has very wonderful composed articles posts .

Hi there, You've performed an excellent job. I¡¦ll definitely digg it and for my part suggest to my friends. I'm sure they will be benefited from this site.

Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass' favor.

Howdy, i read your weblog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering in the event you get plenty of spam comments? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so considerably lately it is driving me mad so any assistance is extremely much appreciated.

Sorry for the huge review, but I'm really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it's the right choice for you.

It seems that todays representatives in the House, Congress, White House, and in Judiciary seem to feel it is their responsibility to be charitable with the taxpayers monies and benevolent to the criminals and non-law abiding citizens and illegal aliens who they think are so deserving of a handout. Anything given is not to long appreciated and soon it becomes expected. Charity should be from individuals who can more afford it, ie. Bill Gates, and ways and means should be established for those in hardship situations to work for their own relief if they are able. If you live in a disaster zone, earthquake, tornado, flood, hurricane, high crime enviornment expect and prepare for the worst and be able to repair the damages from your savings or insurance that you have paid for yourself. Be responsible for your actions and no-one else will have to be resonsible for you stupidity!

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod's. It works well, but isn't as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that's not an issue, but if you're planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod's larger screen and better browser may be important.

I have been surfing on the web much more than 3 hours nowadays, but I in no way found any intriguing write-up like yours. It is fairly worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers created excellent content as you did, the net will likely be a lot more useful than ever prior to.

I must say, youve got one of the greatest blogs Ive seen in a long time. What I wouldnt give to have the ability to generate a blog thats as intriguing as this. I guess Ill just need to keep reading yours and hope that one day I can write on a subject with as a lot knowledge as youve got on this one!

Sorry for the huge review, but I'm really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it's the right choice for you.

I would not imagine Ive ever witnessed a new weblog utilizing this type of numerous responses in it!

Nice to be visiting your blog again, it might be months for me. Adequately this post that i've been waited for too long. I need this post to complete my assignment in the college, and it has exact same topic with your post. Many thanks, great write about.

I saw many sites but yours is very inspiring, you got talent in writing posts, blog bookmarked! Waiting for more info!

Great job on the blog, it looks wonderful. I am going to bookmark it and will make sure to check often

I wish my blog looked like this! That is a compliment, btwI am new to blog posting and reading various articles is helping me out with my own. Any info you could throw my way to help is very appreciated. Thanks for the good info on this entry!

You made various fine points there. I did a search on the issue and found most folks will agree with your blog.

good stuff, reminds me of my brother in florida

Great info. One problem I seemed to be experiencing was viewing your images. No clue why.
