Yes, TGIF!!!!! Good morning, friends. It looks like the next few days are going to be beautiful in the "Burgh"...sunny and 70. That is my kind of weather. So, I am going to do everything in my power to get everything done today so I can be a "normal" person with two days off this weekend.
Yesterday was an extremely stressful and trying day. I actually succumed to tears. Only 3 times in my 19 years here has that happened. And 2 of them were because of the same person. Unfortunately, when I'm angry, I cry. Not very professional! Oh well!
I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Good morning from swfl...ML maybe you need to get in the habbit of throwing pies instead I can't imagine anyone not liking you! Hope this person will behave better in the future!
We had a long day yesterday with all around of 7hrs of driving. But we got to finally meet Phyll which was very nice. My dh business meeting was also a good one. I like that side of Florida a lot and the beach has waves! Too cold for me but in a few month I will go back there and maybe stay over night somewhere.
I doubt I will be on again until monday as the weekend is always very busy for us. Tonight we have our bible study/prayer evening here at the house which I always like. Saturday we help out at the church and off course sunday church in the morning and at night. I need to clean the house today and run to the market.
Wish everyone a good day and weekend. Be blessed!

Mary Lou, Angela, James, Sue and Luanne, good morning to all of you and to all who will be arriving as we travel through this day. Houston will be in the high 70's today and this weekend marks the beginning of the International Festival which will occur the next two weekends. Luckily, I don't have to drive through it. Sandra works it so she'll be swamped.
Have a wonderful day all.
Cruised more times than I can remember.
Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.
Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
Morning All, from Montreal, where the weather just keeps getting better!
We should hit a high today of 18C (64F) and we're looking at 22 (71) for the weekend! It's about time!
ML, sorry about the stress at work, but at least you let it out!
Sue, so nice that you got to meet Phyll!
Angela, it's "come on 6:00!" for me! TGIF!
As Michael stated, Houston will be celebrated their International Festival this weekend. What great weather... it should be a huge success.
DH and I had a very nice day yesterday for our anniversary. Didn't do anything real exciting, but we spent the day together, just "following our noses." We did watch the Splendour of the Seas set sail. All those lucky people!
ML, you have been stretched so thin for so long, I'm not surprised that you hit overload. Hopefully, this weekend will 'recharge' your batteries and next week will be a better week.
I have a few errands to run and then, not sure what all will happen.
Everyone have a great one!

Good morning from sunny Florida. It was 8:30 when I woke up. What a lazy bones!!!!
ML, sorry to hear that work has been so stressful. Those tears are a good way to relieve stress, but I know how hard it is when that happens in a work environment. Hope that part is all behind you now.
ML: Hang in there. Don't let the person get to you. It will only make things worse. Determine if "anything" they are saying is valid, if not, bury them. (Corporate-wise)
Today will be the North Dakota invasion. My sister and brother-in-law will be arriving in a couple of hours to spend the weekend. They were to spend most of the weekend with my other brother (not Darryl) but he accepted a job in Fargo (exciting ) and is beginning the moving process and I now be their host. I don't care, it is great to have family at the Mikeyard by Marriott.
Well it's time to take the black light to the bedspread and make sure there are only a minimal number of bed bugs in the pillows, so I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and fantastic weekend.
