This and That

1.  Hank is on his way over to the farm.  Some idiot or idiots got past the camera system AND the alarm system...broke in a window and stole the central heat/air unit.  I may be more annoyed at the camera and alarm companies than I am the thieves.  Hard to say just this minute...(Edit @ 10:32 PM...once Hank got there, he found that they'd also taken the refrigerator, stove, washer, dryer, microwave, and his hunting clothes. They opened every closet and drawer and left everything all over the floor....AARRRGGGHHHH!!!)

2.  Is anybody else out there in a funk?  I sent Lorelai with Hank to a wedding last I'd been looking forward to attending...because I just couldn't get myself together.  I made a nest on the sofa and watched "Eclipse." Felt better this morning but now the funk has returned. I believe the source of the funk to be an interaction on Friday afternoon which left me feeling that I'd been insulted ever so slightly from a professional perspective.  The rational side of me keeps saying "it was nothing," and it WAS nothing in the big scheme of things but I just cannot let it go...I'm not proud of this...I'm just saying...

3.  I need to take a chocolate chess pie. out of the oven.  I am home alone.  Hmmmmm



  1. Don't let someone elses words take days of your life from you. Life is too precious and too short...

  2. Incredible!! ~ hope you are able to track down heating/A/c unit ...

    Yes, I can relate to being in a funk .. try to think of all the great things you have going on in life ... and slowly you'll be out of your jammies (this from the gal who has not left the house in 2 days ... and changed from jammies to jamies..;smile..)... Sometimes we just need "Me time.

    As for situation at work ... it's your Ego that is getting the best of you. Fight it with all you got and move forward with your head held high!! xi HHL

  3. Stole the heating/air unit - good grief. Sorry about the funk. I do understand about feeling insulted professionally. Been there - just 2 weeks ago. I had to step back and realize that really she is doing this because a lot of the problem is she, not my kids or me. Yours is probably a case of jealousy or resentment because you are SO together. Seriously, you are. Chocolate Chess Pie - yummy!! xoxo

  4. I am so sorry about the farm! Being broken into is bad enough, the mess is insult to injury!

    And the funk is understandable. It may be the situation OR have you thought about that you have been through alot this past year- with your mom, the new school that things are kinda getting "stable" its as if your system doesn't know how to handle an equilibrium? Give yourself a bit of a break, but also try a gratitude list- make a list of all the big and little things that you have to be thankful for. That always works for me when I'm in a funk. (and will probably be needed considering you just got robbed at the farm- at least it wasn't when someone was there, etc). I know it sounds a bit pollyanna-ish, but it does help.

  5. Oh Belle,

    The break-in at your farm is just awful. And it didn't help get you out of your funk. I think this time of year can be very stressful - but in your typical fashion, You will be strong and carry on.
    Sending warm thoughts your way.


  6. People are just plain out right mean these days...

    Sorry about the farm....and hope too you'll be back to your old self...well, not "old" but you know what I'm saying here!! :o)


  7. Mrs. Belle, don't go tellin' everyone your home alone, not safe.
    As for said insulter....I just got one of those myself, but is was on a more personal note. All I can say is, "Bless her heart, she must be an unhappy person." Because, quite frankly, I don't have the time to let petty, small comments or people ruin my spirit. It was over something so trivial as hair ribbons and head bands...can you believe it?

  8. Oh, I am feeling your pain on all levels. Bless your heart. Hope you are bouncing back by now and if not you have some of that Chocolate Chess Pie left over to get you through the rest of the week.

  9. I missed a big Christmas party a few weeks ago just because it felt nice to just sit down and do nothing.

    Not a funk just worn out. This working/mom gig is hard.


Please makes me HAPPY!
