THANKS SHARON

LOL....I was supertired last night and had a boring day in my life as compared to my usual three ring circus that seems to be an ongoing thing.  Boring is good, at least as far as things are concerned with me.

Left for work before 6 am...worked a 10 hr day...got home after 7 pm.  I work 4 ten hr days with Wed. being my off day.  I stopped at the store with freezing rain/snow.  I played around with my new back up computer, then after 10 started my journal hopping.  That's when I found out that Sharon Golf and Other Stuff... was picked at this week's guest editor (Way to Go, Sharon on being chosen!) and had chosen my journal as one of her picks.  Whoa....if I knew I was getting company, I would have definitely cleaned this journal house...LOL.)

Middle-aged, divorced mom here with three children; hence my three ring circus, although one lives on their own now and one is away at college.  None the less, life is a daily mix of confusion to sometimes utter chaos with a dog and cat adding to my fun.

I have to agree with Sharon...LOL...my elevator is definitely stuck between floors most of the time.  Blame it on my age which is the same as Sharon's, except she's older than me by a month or so (I think)...hehehehe

I am laughing now because I have been fussing for a month about computers.  My 4 month old E-Machine dying, my back-up being built by my daughter, me being stuck using a 7 year old bomb HP with dial-up in between while my back-up was being built...yikes...

Ok, I'm thinking I'm a whiner sometimes.  I've said many times the smallest things tend to aggravate me the most.  Patience....nil to none when computers, cars, appliances don't operate properly.  It usually ends up emptying my pocket which I swear has a hole in it.

I've also become a PSP addict.  I had been doing PSP for about two months when my computer crashed so I just started back up again searching endlessly through my back up drive for my stuff. 

So, if anybody enters this journal from the picks....WELCOME.  It's a sometimes crazy ride with me.  LOL...be forewarned.  If ya don't have DSL, you can probably clean your house or something while this journal downloads.......

Chris, i was here before you were picked...i am so proud she picked you!! I love your journal and dont find you whiny, actually i look forward to your entries and find you refreshing. I know the HELL of a PC crashing. I had my heart broke in 2003 when my 1st PC died and took my poems, stories and irreplacable things with it.
Have a happy happy Friday! Love,lisa jo
