It is too bad we really couldn't enjoy it as The Hubby and I have been a little green around the gills. Mine is the bottom half while his tummy is very queasy. Don't know what has set us off but YUCK! Yesterday I had to attend a bridal shower that stated as being between 2-4 pm. At 3:45 the gift table was still untouched. I told The Hubby I would be home so we could take off for the cabin at 3:30, well apparently I lied.
I spent part of the afternoon doing a little shopping as I was feeling a little better from the head cold I was fighting. I avoided the malls but instead hit small boutique like stores and was amazed at what I was able to find. I was pretty excited to get a lot of my shopping done. I'm pretty stoked to get so much done. Now I have to get my tree and ornaments out of the attic, make fruitcake, do some Christmas cards and just plain bake lots and lots of goodies. I told Harri and Sin last night that I was going to plan a night where we three couples meet at our house for a drink then hit a nice restaurant for a holiday dinner. They were all for it so I need to get a date planned ASAP. I'm actually feeling like Christmas now. I've been uploading Christmas music in my IPOD and I'm in the mood to make my multitude of lists I love to do. Lots of stuff to do, lots and lots and lots and lots....wow...I'm beginning to get a little woozy from my mind going into overload. Oh well, off to list now...enjoy the video.

We are in the middle of working with our architect on plans to expand the master bath and closet area. When we did the gutting of our house and total remodel the bath area was not touched and has not been touched since the 70's. YUCK! We are going to add on to the house and punch out into the backyard with a deck, hot tub and a workout area in the bathroom add-on. I want my own closet but The Hubby says he doesn't see a problem with a huge closet for us both. Do you see a problem. I do. He said that if I kept it clean then no problem. I am not going to live with his constant nagging that I have dropped a pair of socks on the floor. I am who I am and I am a mess, deal with it. I need a door so I can close it. What will probably happen though is that I will be able to keep it clean as we are designing it to fit MY needs that have not been met before. Now he wants a washer and dryer combo with an ironing board in the middle of it so he doesn't have to carry his laundry to the huge laundry room we already have. Whatever. I will keep all posted on this ongoing battle. Are we having fun yet!

MONDO LUIS SHEPLEY
I'm also sick with a stupid head cold and it is confined in my HEAD! I really don't feel bad but just sleepy. Last night Mondo got me up twice and The Hubby once to go outside, so sleep is something I will catch up on today along with my mountains of my laundry that have accumulated. The Hubby does his own so it is MY laundry. Tomorrow I have to go to a bridal shower too that I really don't want to go too, but I MUST.
Okay, now back to the thankfulness of the day:
- I am thankful for my life in general
- I am thankful for The Hubby: he does his own laundry, his own ironing, cleans up after dinner, makes me laugh, loves me
- I am thankful for my two beautiful girls that give me joy to no end
- I am thankful for my Daddy, Bro and Sis (even though she can royally piss me off)
- I am thankful for my friends
- I am thankful for my in-law family; I couldn't have paid for a better Mom-in-Law or Bro's in law
- I am thankful that the path in life I have chosen to walk down was the right one for me, that it has given me such an abundance of love
- I am thankful for the beauty of a spring morning (which I can't to see again)
- I am thankful for the influences in my life that supported me in everything I have accomplished in my little life
- I am thankful!

Around 11 today we are also going to granddog sit with little...uh...big Mondo. B&B are going to Okemah to be with his family today and overnight. This means I may not get much sleep tonight as I hear every little movement he makes at night in his bed at the end of our bed. He's a good dog but I really don't like the responsibility of having him here, especially when we have to leave for a bit. I want to put him in the garage while we leave but The Hubby says to leave him in the backyard and I would but if by some odd chance he gets out I would be devastated and feel horrible. We live 31st & Lewis and he would be at huge risk of possibly being hit. Oh my God I would just not be able to live with myself. I was the same with our little doggy. I will win this battle I assure you.
The Hubby and I went out yesterday and bought our Christmas presents for each other, together. We went to Drysdales and I got a pair of cowboy boots and and a cowboy hat and he got two hats. I will have pictures later when I feel like taking pictures which I don't right now...as...a..a..a...a....CHOO! Bless me...sorry. Oh well, I think I'll turn the TV on and take a little nap...Happy Thanksgiving to one and all this morning.

Next I was going fishing with The Hubby and our architect/friend JB in a very clear green-blue pond that was extremely deep. I had the feeling it was around the new construction area by Bass Pro in Broken Arrow by the expressway, where there used to be a horse farm. I looked in the water and there were some very odd fish and huge fish swimming around, with gigantic teeth. JB threw his line in first and caught one that flew out of the water trashing and I yelled at him to hang on. He was laughing when it flew off his hook back into the cool green depths. Oh, and the little piece of land we were standing on was just a strip of dirt with green moss about 3 feet wide, I didn't look behind us. I was afraid to. The creatures were scary, almost prehistoric with giant gnashing teeth and contorted slimy bodies. Creepy. I know where I got this from, at least the creatures. I was playing a game on ClubPOGO called PICTUREKA before I went to bed last night. It is sort of like Find Waldo, where you find objects and there were a lot of creepy creatures like in my dream, although the dream fish were more realistic than the drawn ones in the game.
The last dream was what woke me up with the crying and anger. I was driving my little red Miata down a highway, fast and there was a truck a little ways behind in the left lane as I was in the right. It was a section between Tulsa and Inola on 412 going up to the big turn to Catoosa and the casino area. I slowed because there was a huge, almost horsesize golden retriever dog running across the road and I didn't want to hit it. I slowed but the white truck in the other lane seemed to speed up and flash by me right towards the golden dog. I turned my head and didn't look but knew what was going to happen. I looked up to drive past a bloody shape of a flat dead dog and the white truck barrelling ahead to a sort of gate, or toll gate. I slowed my car at almost a standstill at the gate and the man was getting out laughing and talking to a bunch of people, like it was a party place and his car had turned into a golf cart. He was wearing yellow golf clothes too. I reached out my hand and smacked him on the back and asked why he couldn't stop, didn't he see the dog. The Hubby was standing there next to him laughing and talking to other people also. I was crying and yelling at him but he just shrugged his shoulders.
That was when I woke up feeling horrible. I had been crying in my dream and yelling and my jaw was killing me as it was clinched in anger. My back hurt and my stomach was in a knot. Well, I guess you are supposed to dream, that means you are in REM sleep but dammit not with those kinds of dreams. I have been dreaming a lot lately but these were the most disturbing ones I've had in a long time.

I've had absolutely nothing to do here at the office ALL day long and have been watching TV and playing ClubPOGO and answering the phone. We had an insurance guy come by to do a little middle of the year evaluation of our shop this morning which I hate. We also had to put the entire office full of furniture back together as the cleaning crew had to strip the floors and wax them this weekend. In fact, I don't know what they did to my computer but it took 30 minutes to get the screen to even work. I was not happy.
This afternoon we meet with our attorney and financial advisor to make sure we are planning right, YUCK!
EGADS...I'm bored today!!!!!!!

I am sitting here posting this waiting to leave to take my car to have the faceplate for the radio replaced. After that is done I'll go back to the office and deal with a pile of stuff on my desk. Luckily B is there today so I don't feel guilty away. We put a contract on some investment property last week and they accepted it yesterday so that is stuff I have to do. We hired another guy to be a material handler and so that is stuff I need to deal with. We also had to buy another work van and when The Hubby was filling out the paperwork they informed him that there had been activity on his social security number. Since we don't finance much that was a shock but the activity has happened since 1998 and we have bought many vehicles since then. I was shocked we had not been informed by other dealerships before. So when I get back I have to check the credit reports and then deal with that legally. It was a woman out of Texas. Very concerning. Then I get an email from our attorney that is working on our estate planning who wants to meet, with us with the financial planner so I have to coordinate four different calendars to make that happen. Just crap to do and I DON'T WANT TO DO ANY OF IT!!!!!

This week has kept The Hubby and I busy with financial stuff. We met on Monday with the accountant and Tuesday we met with our financial advisor. These meetings were necessary to make a decision on putting an offer on some investment property. Our business is bursting at the seams and we need more space but the property we are looking at has the potential of leasing out for extra income. So on Wednesday, after the intense meetings we made an offer on the property. We met the realtor, signed the offer and wrote a escrow check for $5000. He left with the paperwork and our check to take it to the owner. I left about 30 minutes after him. I backed out of the parking lot and as I was preparing to shift into drive I saw a small piece of paper in the drive where I had just pulled out. I hesitated and then my gut told me to pick that piece of paper up. I pulled up, opened my door right over the paper and looked down to see $5000, our check was laying on the ground. It had apparently fallen out of the file folder the realtor was carrying. The Hubby walked out of the shop just then to put something into his truck and I motioned him over to my car flagging the check in my hand. He just shook his head, took the check and went inside to call the realtor. I closed my door and went on my way to bowling letting The Hubby handle the situation. So we have made and offer and he countered then we countered back and are waiting to hear.
This next week I have tons on my plate and no desire to accomplish any of it. I need to call one of my classmates that has put together a website for our class to guide me through it (I am the class contact); I need to pay a ton of bills at the office and they will be done tomorrow; I need to pick up the house and do my laundry; I need to call the insurance company to deal with some life insurance stuff YUCK!. All of these things will be done this week as they are necessary and fairly easy, I just don't want to do them. I have a lot of stuff to do at home too that may not get done anytime soon. I still have a closet to clean out but that is a major deal as it is filled with pictures, boxes and boxes of unorganized pictures that I want to organize. The closet is also filled with lots of my craft projects that I just don't do anymore but just can't let go of. Very sad. Actually, The Hubby suggested, after I mentioned, that I look into one of those closet organizers businesses. I don't need the closet for clothes as it is in "my room". I need it to be ORGANIZED which I'm having a hard time doing, especially with the boxes to the ceiling. It is overwhelming. I'm a little overwhelmed at the office too and B is trying to get me to get things together there. I was talking to my friend Bev today and admitted to her that I am just apathetic about everything lately. I don't want to do anything, absolutely nothing. I don't want to read, craft, work, nothing. She said that is sort of the beginnings of depression. I'm actually already there. As I have written before I have been so depressed for at least 2 years after the death of Momma, Gail and our little doggy all within a few months. I seem to rally and then I fall again and that is where I find myself again. I think there are a lot of things going on. I think I have the loss going on, the loss of my mother and one of my best friends and then I'm dealing with the flakiness of another dear friend to top it off. And to make matters worse I'm menopausal! That just makes my mind a jumble of feelings. Oh man I'm going to quit now as I'm making myself more depressed just writing about it. I think I might need to visit a therapist a bit, everyone else in my family has why not me.

A fan in the window of the cabin
A must on my face everyday
