Suck It Up, Girlfriend...


I did get out of bed, I did take a bath and I might have even talked to one or two people, at least maybe one or two words.

I've got to come back to life for THE GAME Thursday night. I've got to come alive and bake some cookies tomorrow or Thursday to have to pig on during THE GAME.

Lisa over at My New Thing To Do read my sugar cookie recipe and sent me one of her's to try, so I'm going to give it a try tomorrow or Thursday and I promised her that I would let her know what I think of them.

I've got to come back to some reasonable facsimile of life because even my SueSue didn't want to sleep with me last night. She left Chloe and me, jumped off the bed even before I went to sleep and got on another roommate's bed and went to sleep... even before Pat (the roomie) went to bed!!! Could you, if you were me, look at that face and not feel guilty for being a grumpy old woman?

So I've got to snap out of it whether I want to or not... Before even my precious Chloe takes flight, too. Since she just turned 9, or 63 in human years, she may have decided that, after all these years, she made her bed and she might as well hang in there with me.





In my present state of mind I will not read anything into this hang-dogged, resigned-to-her-fate-look.



We've been through a lot worse together.

I think, if you took a bath, then all is not lost! And you evidently have something exciting to look forward to...the GAME, whatever game that is.

Cookies and games - all good stuff. Take heart!

I always get a little depressed around the holidays....missing my grandparents...and with the kids grown...you know the old empty nest thing. Also, don't discount the winter blahs going on. You know you could have what they call "Seasonal Affective Disorder" SAD ... is cured by sunshine. When I lived in Indiana I would go to the tanning booth in the winter...almost every day....but, then my skin was young. Hope you get cheered up. Maybe you need a new project to work on....or just get out of the house...go visit a friend....take the mutt-mutt's for a walk or a ride.

Hope you feel better today.

I have found that the only way to get up and at it...
Is to get up and at it!
Maybe if you just forced yourself to get up and do one little thing, then that would lead to another and another....
Good luck. Hope you're up and at it soon!

Someone needing us-is usually what it takes to force us into getting on with life :) Glad your on your way out of the blues.

Wait, the dog looking sad comment was meant for this post. Sorry about that.

Check me out in all my Sooner gear. I am ready for the game. At work we have a couple of contractors that are here for 2 weeks and they are from OK City. We are meeting at the local BW's and going to see if we can start a fight. Not really, but I bet we get some looks/comments. I hate it when the game starts so late (8:15 kickoff for us). I can't stay up that late and then be able to function at work.

And M.E. should check out my blog. I have the history of the OU fight song and published the words. Boy, that guy could write BWAHAHAHAAAA

Lisa said...

I can't wait to come photograph you and your babies!!!! I am really excited and pumped! So get your fancy duds out and get ready!

Sorry the cookies were not a big hit, everyone has different taste. They are a very plain cookie, not overly sweet, but the icing is to die for! I even like the cookies after they have been left out for a few days!!! Yes, I am kind of sick like that...I even like the cookie dough beter than cooked! what can I say!

I can't wait to come take your picture!!!
