SparklyLibra -

Thanks for the kind words.

The great thing is that my "Liking" list could have been so much longer. And I was lucky about the fall. It could have been a lot worse given where I landed. And now I know that when you feel light-headed, you should just sit down on the floor where you are rather than try to get to the couch. Lesson learned.

Well, the police just recovered my sisters care with minimal damage! They just took the radio (?) So I can''t hate that anymore.

5 things I like right now:

Beautiful weather in Texas; it will change soon enough.
Texas bluebonnets; they are at their peak right now.
The sun still being in the sky when I leave work at 7PM.
The gorgeous peachy spray roses I bought for $4 gracing my work desk.
Date night with the DH when I get home; we''re heading for a local swanky place.

5 things I don''t like right now:

The pile of bills to pay on my work desk.
My seemingly constant allergies -- thanks to our TX wildflowers.
Having an odd hair day. Can''t really say it''s bad. Just a little cranky maybe.
My desperately-in-need-of-cleaning bathroom at home. Must do some mini housekeeping tonight.
My 401k being a 4.01K at this point. I''m afraid to open my first quarter statement of earnings. ''Cause I ddn''t earn.
