Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday, January 9th, 2013.

How are you today?

I am feeling great ….. I had a slightly disrupted sleep but am awake now and ready to go.

At first, I thought I had a fever but it was only a “hot flash.”

Oh, the joys of being a woman.


Are you a good sleeper?

It seems like whenever you speak with anyone these days …. people are having problems sleeping.

Not even due to outside forces …… like a baby crying …. or sirens …… they just plain cannot sleep.

Now some people find it hard to shut off the voices ……

While others fall asleep only to wake up after a few hours and then cannot go back to sleep.


For the most part, I have good sleeps.

Some nights outside forces such as Alvin disrupt the sleep of his Momma.

Some nights I sleep and wake up “warm” …..

Some nights just thinking too much.


I hope that you had a good sleep or at least can take a nap during the day.

We should adopt the “siesta” ….. about 2:30-3:00 p.m. …. that would be great ..


Well have to run here.

Thank you everyone for taking time out of your busy day to read my blog, I really appreciate it.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to:  all those people who wish that they could have a good night’s sleep …..


Always, Carol and Alvin


Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013 …..

Well, I did it ….. the tree came down and most of the indoor decorations.

Outside still up and also the ornaments that line the top of my kitchen cabinets and a few other things.

The majority is done and the house looks bare.

Isn’t it funny that once all of our Christmas treasures come down that the house looks bare …. actually more of a feeling.

I guess it is just saying good-bye to yet another Christmas.

It was great and I am grateful that I was in great health and surrounded by my family and friends.


I am taking one of writing notebooks to work with me today and will spend my breaks writing.

I have lots of ideas and I figure that I should use each opportunity to get my thoughts down on paper.

No lost opportunities this year.

I will carry my notebook with me wherever I go so that I am always prepared.


So as we begin another New Year …. how are you feeling?

Are you excited for what is to come?  I am.

I just as previous years want to live my very best life.

I am going to add something and that is taking each opportunity as it comes my way.

Part of that is recognizing them, as well.


So on this mid week day let us enjoy what we have and promise to work towards our goals and dreams.

Special Hello to:  all those people who have decided to live a more positive life …. it truly is the best way.

Live in the moment and be the best person you can be.

Till tomorrow…….

Have a great day.


Always, Carol and Alvin
