The day when I'm better than OK........................

If I find 10,000 ways something won’t work, I haven’t failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.

Thomas A. Edison (1847 – 1931)

*UPDATE: If I were to post a blog yesterday it would have been completely different from what you are seeing right now. I thought it best to let yesterday go and move forward. The problem being is that this has been one of the difficult weeks that unfortunately you just can't avoid. I've been on a roller coaster of emotion on the verge of crying the majority of the time, but, then again it's my fault for subjecting myself to country music. These tunes for some reason have the deepest effect on me when I am discouraged and/or defeated. Travis Tritt has this song which says "It's a great day to be alive........." but what if you don't feel like it's a great day to be alive. What if what you really want is to crawl back in bed, cover the windows so no stitch of light can reach your eyes...............I've never been one to excessively lie around in bed all day but man I can't wait for a break. A 3 day weekend is not enough! Thankfully the last week of August I am due for some much needed time off. I suppose that I should now start planning some sort of excursion to keep my mind off of the things that aren't going the way that I wish they would. I did get the time off for my Vegas birthday celebration the first week in October, and this I am very excited about. I ordered a visitor guide and just rec'd it yesterday (just writing about it is putting a smile on my face) and I pulled out a card that has a picture of the city & I taped it to my desk above my monitor so that I can be reminded of what I have to look forward to. Oh it's going to be great, this week we should probably finalize our plans so we're locked in. That's when it will be real, for some reason I keep feeling like it's not going to happen. But that's just some of Cody's paranoia rubbing off on me! Maybe this weekend since we won't have any unexpected visitors we can go camping so that I can sit back and let the cares melt away!! Hey, when you got an itch...............
