It's been ages since I've done two entries in one day.  I felt the need to because I've been venting and ranting so much lately.  That really wasn't the intent of my journal when I first started.  I wanted it to be a fun place to be.

Small things frazzle me.  Many small things piling up super frazzle me.  That shouldn't be that way.  I need to be thankful that these are minor inconveniences. In the scheme of things, I have many, many blessings to be thankful for.

LOL...for some reason, my air conditioner got a second life this evening.  It's cool and I'm calm once again.  I love hot weather but I love coming home to a cool house not an oven.  And no, I didn't dip in the pool because my pump isn't working right.  My BF has the book out and has to take it apart.  My ex could fix it in a minute but would probably gerry rig (sp) it so that it would electrocute me.  But hey, I'm sitting here in the super cool familyroom...I mean ice cold because the thermostat is set low and I'm afraid to turn it up.

I was ready this afternoon to whack it one.  Someone really needs to take the hammer and throw it away.

Poor Grizzly with that thick black coat of his.  He was withering.  He isn't used to heat and couldn't get comfortable at all.  Once I got the air going, he was laying in front of a fan I bought at Walmart today.  I left in on to get the AC circulating.  I could almost see the relief on his face.

When I get home tomorrow from work, I will be finishing my packing for my trip to Ohio....WHOO HOO!!!!!!  I cannot wait to meet my Penny girl in person.

I hope all the daddys had a good day today.  You all deserve it.  To those who still have their dads, give them a hug and tell them you love them....

I think your journal is awesome.  However, that is just my opinion.  I like it when we can all share in our journals about the good and the bad times.  Its great when it is like that.  Even the babblings and ramblings it makes it better.  I think it brings us all closer together.  Take care of yourself and I am glad that you have some cool air.  I know that doesn't feel good especially when you are me and premenopausal.  (LOL) - Hugs Tish

I feel that I have been venting a lot in my journal too.  I guess that is what it is here for.  I am happy that you are cool now.  It has been really humid around here lately as well, and with the central air, it is not at least barable.  Love ya,

I'm so excited, you'd think I was meeting you gals there! LOL
Blessings, Sug

Put down the hammer and step away.  LOL
Rant and rave ALL you want.  Why not? When are you going to Ohio? Richard has been on vacation for 23 min. LOL and we haven't decided where to go. LOL
Have fun.  Tell Penny hello.  It's probably OK to turn the therm up. LOL  and have a great great week.
Hugs, Barb

I know it was my intention too to write my journal in a certain way,at the beginning I did achieve it,writing about my domestic abuse and couselling others via email,I still do,however,as with life,we grow and develop as we write,why shouldnt you rant,I do,things on a day to day basis really can affect you,and it is for you to bring other peoples attention to that,their comments then help you to get through things from their experiences.I think it would be so boring to read a journal that has no personal experiences or feeling in it,I think yours is honest and appitimises journal writing for all to see,keep ranting hun,otherwise I will be alone doing it myself lol.xx zoe xx.

Hey Chris,

Can't wait to hear all about your visit with Penny.  I think it's wonderful when people get to meet their J-Land buddies.  Hope you will post pics and stories of all you get to do together.

Take Care,

A day late and a dollar short; I know you are on your way to meet Penny today (if I remember correctly). I do hope you have a wonderful trip.

As far as venting and rambling in journals, its our journals to list what we want to list, know what I mean? We all need a place where we can voice our thoughts, feelings, etc. I'm privileged you feel comfortable enough to share them here among friends to get support and I'm honored to be called a friend of yours.

Poor Griz; Koda understands perfectly. He doesn't like going outside much on hot days; its that black fur of his; instant magnet of the sun's rays
