God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

"We are driven to create at this deep wordless level of the soul because we are all fashioned in the image of a God who is an Artist." - Michael Card, Scribbling in the Sand.

I’m so behind I don’t even know where to start.

Let’s see I withdrew my application to the airport. After talking with several people I decided I didn’t want to jump out of the frying pan into the fire. I did do a JLQ to try to get my job updated to the next pay grade. If this happens I’ll get about a 7% pay raise which would really help with the bills. I might even be able to put some additional money towards my retirement which would mean good things.

I have received my state refund already but not my federal. So that was a nice surprise.

Wes and Jenna will be home tonight or tomorrow morning early. I’m stopping tonight and picking up ground chuck for sloppy joes, I still have to make mac salad and veggie pizza tonight along with stripping the beds and getting clean sheets on all of them. The rest of the house is clean.

Oh and I have an aquarium full of baby guppies. Last count I had 7 from the first group and 5 from the newest batch still surviving. My Clown Loach likes to make a meal on the little ones as well as the mommy and daddy and the other fish in the tank. I watched the loach make a big meal last night on about ½ a dozen. I need to get some more Mickey mouse platties since I love them so much. And I also need to take my Placatomas in and trade him for a baby. He’s about 7 inches long now and tears up everything in the tank.

Let’s see what else we have had snow every day for the last 5 days but only have about an inch on the ground. It snows melts and snows again. This is so similar to 2002 or 2003 can’t remember which when we got the big Valentines snow and I lost the roof to my patio. I hope we don’t have a repeat of that.

I guess that’s all! I hope everyone is having a good day. I'll leave you with a picture of Wilson Hall that I did the Orton Technique on.
