Today. I am old. And babyless.

Tomorrow, I will thank God for my blessings, my husband, my health, my family, my friends. But today, I am a year older, and I am once again reminded that my greatest wish has not been fulfilled. Today, I ask myself if I should stop dreaming, hoping, praying. Is this the answer to all my conversations with God? Is this all I am supposed to do with my life?

Yes, tomorrow will be a better day. But today, I am entitled to hopelessness, fear, and some tears.

must see tv?

Thanks to HD DVR via Direct TV, I will see more television than one should ever see. Here's the plan:

Dancing With the Stars
The Bachelor
CSI Miami

The Biggest Loser
Law & Order SVU

Pushing Daisies
Private Practice
Bionic Woman
Back To You

Grey's Anatomy
Survivor: China
The Office
Don't Forget the Lyrics

The Next Great American Band

If you don't find me blogging, you'll find me either scrapbooking, or couch potato-ing. Is that a verb? It does make me feel better that I will actually be on the treadmill for most of these shows. Are you looking forward to anything exciting? Am I missing something on the list?

clip it up.

Clip_it_up My friend, Grace, gave this to me for my birthday! Ain't she sweet? :) I will be spending the day tomorrow catching up on scrapbooking and organizing my sticker sheets, etc. with this lovely new toy.

And yes, my birthday is coming up. I will be 40 years old in 6 years. Sigh.

what goes around.

Justin Timberlake is almost 30 years old (in 4 years, but hey, he's not 18). It would be wrong to think these things about him if he wasn't.

Yes, he's pretty hot, but he just ain't my husband. Sure he can sing and shake his ass but he I bet he can't make a ribbon holder. :) We had a lovely dinner last night for our 3rd anniversary and spent some "special" time with each other. "Special" is code word for "action." It's not riding the yellow bus together or licking windows for fun, in case you didn't know.

when it rains, it pours.

I was productive yesterday. Cooked some chicken, meat loaf, potatoes, brownies. No, we did not eat all of that together but I always have to preplan meals when I work my 3-night stretch. Finished these projects for ScrapAddict. And I even managed to squeeze in a nap and a 30 minute date with the treadmill.
