Friday Fun + Give Away Day!

Dear weather gods,

Please choose a season. Preferably a warm, sunny one. The inch of hail covering my car yesterday when I went outside was a bit disturbing for April.

Also, you could let up on Chicago. You have caused my hubby and me to miss flights one too many times.

Thank you for your consideration.



Dear new students,

You are awesome! That was the most fun I’ve had in a class in awhile. Thanks for giving me something to look forward every Thursday to for the next 6 weeks!

Your happy trainer


Dear back/neck/sciatic nerve,

Please stop hurting. Please? I promise that tomorrow I will spend an hour doing nothing but letting someone else make you feel better at Massage Envy. But I would like to be able to get through today w/o the constant pain. (Please?)


PS Thank you for not causing my leg to buckle last night in class. Way to be good for an hour :-)


Dear readers,

Don’t forget to enter my give away! Today’s the last day to enter, and right now you’d have a (roughly) 50-50 chance of winning! I promise the prizes are awesome :-D I also promise that after tonight I will stop mentioning it ;-)

Excited gifter


Actually in a good mood this morning..maybe because it IS morning so nothing’s had a chance to happen yet :-D I’m scraping for things to write about for Dear So and So (since I usually use it to vent ;-).

(10 minutes later) Yup, that was it. The so-early-nothing-has-happened thing. Guess I’m not done with Dear So and So…

Dear three-lettered-friend,

You don’t know how lucky you still are to be in one piece. It’s a good thing I have a lot of self-control. Please stop changing things that cause me to restart all of my calcs on the day the calc book is due. I will do it, but you d@mn well better not blame me if the book isn’t done due to this change. I already refused to start over once due to an unnecessary change you proposed yesterday, but I guess it was in vain. These changes would be less annoying if they weren’t going directly against things our boss has told us. Please, when we decide something just accept it, stop going back and questioning ad-infinium. Also, your “fast and stupid” work style means that I no longer trust anything that comes out of your mouth, because you’ve not really seriously considered it, and I know there’s a 50-50 chance you’ll rescind it and decide you were wrong anyway.

your “subordinate” for just 3 more little weeks…

PS I realize you (finally) had a good catch. If it wasn’t for all the other ones that weren’t good I’ve been dealing with I wouldn’t be upset. Also if it wasn’t the day the book was due that you thought about this. But mainly that first point.


OK. That feels better.

I am happy that I only have 3 weeks to go!

I am happy that I get to “draw” names for my first give-away this evening!

I am happy that my hubby is finally home!

I am happy that yesterday I got, not one, but two new clients!

I am happy that I have another Sunday afternoon doggy playdate on the beach with a friend scheduled!

I am happy that both of my classes this week went really well and helped me remember the joy of training!

I am happy that every single client I have met with this week went out of their way to express out-loud how much progress they saw and how incredibly happy with my services they were!

I am happy that I got a little tiny job that will be fun and hopefully open the door to more!

I am happy that I got to see some of my favorite coworkers yesterday, who I thought would be at their remote location until after I was gone!

See? Happy! That’s way more happy than I can usually pull out! :-D And that was non-stop without really trying!

Aloha, y’all!

My aloha Friday question for you:

If you could enter a give-away with any prize possible, what would be your ideal prize?

Mine are not super common, good fiction books would be the first (hence the topic of my give-away…). I love to read and I love recommendations and I just love love love owning books. Another great one would be puppy-stuff. Treats, toys, training tools, I love it all! I go into a pet store and I can’t leave!

How ’bout you? Let me know in the comments!

And finally, below I’ll put up the pics for Friday Follow and Follow-Me-Friday. That’s all the effort those two take :-D

(And don’t forget to go enter my give away!)

  6. Glad you are seeking massage therapy for relief – I was just thinking ‘that woman NEEDS a massage’ as I read that you were going to get one! As a massage therapist myself, I can never say enough about the power of massage :-)

    Sending sunbeams your way… even if they’re just mental :-)

  7. Oh goodness, a massage sounds heavenly right about now.

    Also, this is why you should move down here. It’s sunny and beautiful and then we could go to the (warm) beach and play with puppies (once you help me get one).

    Ummm… give aways…. I never win those things so I’m not sure.
    Oh, I know, a PhD (accredited of course). Or a Masters. Or a vacation. Or money. Or a massage. Or books. Or… anything really.

    Oh, and I miss you. :) Have a good day.

  8. Oh, I feel your pain on the sciatica. Ow. :(

    I like the answer Harriet gave. Cash without taxes would be an awesome giveaway prize.
