In The News...

DO we really want to know what's in the news anymore? I mean, we can't do anything about it, right? Kids are being hurt, and even killed by those who are supposed to love and cherish them, hate crimes in the name of race, sexuality, and everything else, is prominent lately, the politicians running for office focus on everything but the main problems, and well, then you have the things that are going on in other countries.

SO lets try this...

In today's news the sun is shining, the breeze is cool and mild, and the birds are chirping. The dogs aren't barking, the store accepted my debit card (I remember the days of having to take my calculator in so I could add my purchase up before I hit the register), and the cars are both full of gas, which is an expensive commodity these days. The house is standing, the lake is smooth, and we're still here.

As you can probably tell, I'm in quite the mood today. Irritable, tired, stressed beyond words over this whole gym thing. I need help with some things, but don't know who to ask. I need a pricing structure that will be reasonable for the parents, while allowing us a way to at least make payments. I need to know how to expand my parameters, while keeping true to the original purpose. I need to know that the people I've made contact with thus far were honest with their intentions, and not just checking out our business plan. ::sigh::

The wife's mom is coming into town again, and once again we will head to the casino. Wish me luck... a cool 250,000 will waylay some of this stress. I would pour it into the gym, and not feel so pressured.

Okay... time for me to get the laundry whipped out, the dishes washed, and then hop in the shower. I don't why I do that before we go to the smokey casino, but I like being clean. :)

I agree with you. There are so many awful things out there in the news. It takes a fine balance from being informed to keeping one's mental health safe because of everything there is. I especially find it difficult to digest stories about children being hurt in any way. THIS mama bear will hurt anyone who comes after HER cubs and babies. Just sayin...

No, I really haven't like watching the news for a long time....they may grab me for a minute...mostly if I tune in it's for the weather, and even that is usually a mistake!

Another Saturday morning full of excitement. I remember the song, "We sure could use a little good news today." Sounds like that could be your theme.

I hope the day goes well, and that you have fun with the wife's mom. And that your dreams for your project start taking reasonable shape. Maybe writing a grant application to a service club, or two, would be in order.

Blessings and Bear hugs.
