So I am making a new trend (there are so many for my blog now, try to keep up) its called Say WHAAT?! Wednesdays. I will post all of the goings on and try to keep it positive, since Mondays is reserved for complaining and venting my troubles out.
1) Thank you to my newest follower Kerri @ http://confessionsofashoeaholic-kerri.blogspot.com/ for being my newest follower, you in your cute little shoes rock!! I am sooo close to 50 people, can you feel it? I can!!
2) I saw something so inspiring and just really beautiful today. On the license plate frame in front of me it said, "Thanks Chad for the two lungs" and they had a donate life sticker as well. Wow! What a gift to give someone else! I have a co-worker who dontated her kidney. Consider becoming a organ donor on your license at least. If God forbid, you die in a car crash or something, you won't need them anyway and they could save someone else's life.
3) Tracy over at http://goodgirlgoneaverage.blogspot.com/, one of my favorite blogs, inspired me to write about my anxious waiting for Spring's arrival. I love the Spring. I love coming outside and feeling the warm sun on my skin, breathing in the flower scented air and hearing the birds singing. And the animal babies!! We spend a lot of time at our beautiful lake and I love to see all the little duck babies or gosslings waddling around following their parents, so cute! What a magical time in nature. A time of renewal, rebirth and beautiful weather. I hope I can make a baby soon too! We have certainly had fun trying!
Last Friday it was 70 glorious degrees outside and I felt like their were rainbows and butterflies coming out of my butt as I walked around our lake! HAHA, kind of like the scene in Anchorman with the rainbows and unicorns...
Most of all I am trying to desperately get the F out of the spare bedroom, working out on the elliptical day in and day out and outside into the sunshine and fresh air!! We only have about a month until the official start of spring, March 20th and I can't wait, for that and St. Patrick's Day too. I am Irish and my sister Patty was born on St. Patrick's Day, so I really love it.
So there is as much positivity as I can muster, but today is a frustrating day for me. As you know, I don't talk about my job that much because I work for the government. As you all know, the economy is on the rocks and they may shut the government down, which I am very angry about because this will obviously affect my paycheck. I don't want to make this into a big political blog and I realize many of you may not agree with my politics but I am a huge liberal and a democrat and to me, this is just another way for the stupid, rich Republicans to try to control things and I really hate them for it. Ok, now I am stepping down off my soap box. If I lose followers now because of this, than that is ok with me, because I am likely to go off about something concerning politics in the future!
Here are some pictures of Spring themed things to brighten your day. I know I have included this before but I just love the Norman Rockwell painting of "Springtime" that I have hanging in our house.
