  62. I had a therapy appointment today, and I think we made some progress on my depression so that made me feel hopeful!

  64. I am hopeful that my grand daughter will get over the bout of diahhrea she has been battling for 3 weeks. My daughter will be taking her to urgent care this afternoon.

  65. Republicans and TV/Radio Talking Heads who are so blinded by their mostly irrational hatred of Obama and their obsession with blocking and destroying/dismantling EVERYTHING good that Obama and people like Elizabeth Warren are trying so hard to deliver for regular people (like most of us?) that their obsession with destroying Obama’s presidency they are willing to do great damage to the American people (and others) just because it makes them feel good and gets them big money from people who want to exploit people, pay people a living wage and deny them health care, as well as pollute the air and poison the water and food supply.

    The GOP Congress has only been in session for a week and the are already working very hard to damage and dismantle medicare/ Medicaid, Social Security and Benefit for those who are disabled. Cut programs the feed hungry kids, over turn Obama’s “DREAMERS” (and other newly initiated programs) to provide a little decency to immigrants who work hard and have been here for YEAR (maybe their whole lives!) and also dismantle the already very limited and weak protections in Dodd-Frank to protect regular taxpayers from high risk behavior by banks etc that go south.

    You know how it goes:


    As you can see this makes me very mad! (Sorry for all of my rants ~ it’s been a somewhat depressing day…)

  66. Yesterday President Obama previewed his State of the Union address and he has some wonderful proposal for programs and project that will GENUINELY be GOOD for us Regular People ~ not just help the obscenely wealthy and in many case criminal corporation have even more wealth and power.

    It’s hard, but I try to keep the faith and be hopeful, wistfully hopeful.

  67. As a two-time breast cancer survivor, getting my annual diagnostic mammogram always comes with a certain amount of anxiety and dread..

    But today brought good news: my mammogram came back clean and healthy. That is not only an enormous relief ~ but even instills a feeling of spirited energy!

  68. The only thing that made me mad today was my procrastination. I’ve got a list of things to do and none of them got done today.

  69. I’m hopeful I will be able to reach a long lost friend by phone today. We were best friends yet haven’t seen each other in over 20 years.

  70. What made me happy today was knowing the house is clean. cleaned it yesterday for the most part anyway which makes me happy today

  71. Clamshell packaging made me angry today. I imagine a board meeting with twelve suits circling a mahogany table saying, “Let’s come up with packaging that has a hundred percent success rate for serious laceration injuries.” Then imagine me walking in the door and dumping that ice water over all of their heads.

  72. The fog this morning made me happy because we so rarely get any type of weather in Santa Barbara. It’s sometimes nice to have a break from sunshine LOL

  78. My mad is brought to you by my 16yo, who neglected to tell me he wouldn’t be home for dinner when I made his favorite. He’s no longer my favorite teenager.

  79. Feeling a bit annoyed with Staples. I went to take advantage of an easy rebate offer on copy paper. The same clerk who I had last time I went turned out to be my checkout clerk again today, and again he messed up on my receipt. Had to spend an extra 15 minutes for them to straighten it all out.

  80. I am hopeful that Annie can find an apartment today where she is planning on attending school. She got to the train in time and looking at this very moment.

  81. I am happy to have a Sunday at church with my family and friends, then come home to a yummy bowl of lasagna soup. Got a few errands done, too.

  83. I’m happy that we’re having a Chinook today and it’s 62 degrees.
    Hopeful that I find an open swimming pool tomorrow.
    No mad today.

  84. What made me mad today? I have a fever, and I was up coughing all night. I’d love to be outside enjoying this beautiful day by walking my dog around the neighborhood.

  85. Today I feel hopeful, because it’s January, and it’s 50-some degrees outside. Spring WILL come again. Spring WILL come again.

  86. Today I love it that my dog waits at the stairs for me while I’m downstairs doing laundry. He’s a fraidy-cat, and won’t go up and down my stairs, which have no risers. But since he has to be with me every second, he gets lonesome, and has to stand watch until I’m finished with laundry.

  87. We had breakfast with a friend today and his wife came along….which she usually doesn’t….so it made me hopeful for a more friendly relationship with her in the future.

  88. I think that today makes me happy because it’s is the Lord’s Day (Sunday). I woke up feeling great and have enjoyed spending time with family and our dogs. I have enjoyed being on the computer and watching taped shows on the DVR. Great day to be alive!

  89. Well, I’m not really mad about anything today. I’m still hating these really cold temperatures. I’m not happy with that!

  90. Why am I happy today? well, my New Year’s diet is hanging in there, & I have lost a little weight. That makes me feel a little better!

  91. So far nothing has made me mad today. Hopefully that will continue, not in the least because I am pretty laid back about some things that can definitely be irritations!

  92. Nothing in particular to be extra hopeful for as yet. But the day is still pretty young–who knows what might come up!

  93. I was actually happy to see that my grandson’s pants that he put on for church were a little short–it proves that despite the fact that he is in a 6 yr old period of ‘I don’t like that’, he is still getting enough good food inside to grow!

  94. My mad came when we went to an indoor flea market in Philly & based the small entrance resulting in us walking all the way around the building, in cold, cold, temps. Hmph.

  95. I was happy to go to Marshalls with a $50 gift card I won. Got a lovely merino sweater and a soft bathrobe.
    Hopeful that the concert I’m going to tomorrow will be wonderful.
    No mad today.

  96. I’m hopeful today that my boyfriend will make dinner so I don’t have to. Don’t like cooking every night trying to come up with something new.

  97. My boyfriend returning to work today after a week long illness made me happy today. I’m glad he’s feeling better.

  98. Talking with Dear Husband about things I can’t imagine discussing with anyone else made me hopeful today!

  99. Why am I mad today? Oh, it’s one of those days where I am having trouble sticking to my diet. And I have no idea why!

  100. I’m feeling a bit angry that the fitness tracker I bought for my daughter’s birthday needs a smart phone in order to use it. She doesn’t have one.

  101. Tonight’s the final Panto performance so hoping that it’s a blast! Ditto the wrap party – can’t remember the last time I let my hair down & partied so really looking forward to it!

  102. Well I finally got around to requesting a full refund from by eBay seller only to find that he is disputing that he is in the wrong. I mean, he’s had my money for a month, sent me the wrong items and ignored all my mails & messages up to now, but as soon as I want my money back: hey presto! I get a response. I got my money back but it makes me so cross – what a way to treat a loyal customer. Bummer!

  103. Today has been beautiful with sunshine, a light breeze but very cold so I wrapped up & got lots of little tidying up jobs done in the garden. I love just being able to potter about – it’s such a luxury having the time to do nothing in particular!

  104. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful it’s a quiet evening today.

  105. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad at the noisy people in the library today.

  106. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy we had sushi buffet today as lunch. It was super satisfactory.

  107. Even though I have already had my mad moment, LOL, I am happy today because the house is silent, people are sleeping, and I am enjoying some me time. No one asking me to make breakfast, or for the computer. It is quiet! I am happy!

  108. I am hopeful today, because I have a medical test that I have to do today, but it seems to be my last one for six whole months! That, coupled with the great medical news I have gotten this week make me very hopeful for the future.

  109. Here is what made me mad today…. I finally had a day when everyone is STILL sleeping, so I could actually sleep in… but I woke up, and couldn’t go back to sleep. GRRRR.c

  110. I was a little perturbed at myself when I blurted something to my daughter that I wanted to keep private a little longer. Annnnd, instead of just shutting up when I realized what I was doing I tried to MAKE it better 🙂 AAARGH!

  111. I am feeling hopeful because my daughter is experiencing more enjoyment in her college classes. She was feeling a little overwhelmed and now she’s doing better.

  112. Reading comments on some posts on Facebook made me mad today(not my posts thank goodness). I don’t know why I read them, but the unkindness of others bugs me to my core sometimes.

  113. One part of the day that made me happy was once my husband got home, I was able to exhale, knowing that my daughter, myself and my husband were now home safely for the weekend.

  114. What made me mad today was being woken up at 4am by my neighbors loud car. I had trouble getting back to sleep.

  115. My Southern California Rock iTunes playlist (Eagles, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, J.D. Souther, etc) made me happy today

  116. I’m happy to go help my friend with her computer this afternoon.
    Hopeful that my good health will continue.
    No mad today.

  117. Why am I hopeful today? Well, it is supposed to get up into the 50s on Saturday! Wow, that seems like a heat wave, lol! Just for one day, but I’ll take that!

  118. Today, I’m happy that the sun is actually out! Oh, it’s still just in the 30s, but just seeing sunlight helps!

  119. Well, I was about to get mad this morning when I woke up! I sat up & the room was spinning. Oh, no! I thought the flu had finally hit me, since it’s hit pretty much everyone else in my family. But after a few minutes it stopped. I guess the heat in the house is stirring up my sinus issues; that builds up at night & gets into my ears. Yuck! Spinning rooms!

  120. My dog’s oncologist office made me mad today. My mom called to make him an appointment and no one could help her and they are always so difficult to work with. But the actual oncologist is great!

  121. Sleeping in and realizing I had slept for 9.5 hours last night made me happy. I was exhausted yesterday and I think I had minor food poisoning so my body needed the sleep!

  122. Hopeful that tonight & tomorrow night’s Pantomime go well. It’s been packed houses every night so far & only a couple of technical cock-ups that weren’t even noticed by the audience. Great reviews in the local papers as well so here’s to tomorrow’s final performance and the PARTY! Yay!

  123. Only a little mad today but the day’s not over yet. I was in a rush to get ready to go out and had to have a cold shower (agh!) because someone (and he knows who he is) had switched the water heater off.

  124. Happy today because I got my car back from the mender & he gave me a really good price for the repairs – phew!

  125. I am happy because we are going to see my husband’s best friend’s band perform tonight. We have seen him with other bands, but we have not made it out to a show with this band yet, and he has been with them for a little over a year.

  126. I try not to get mad because I like to keep my life positive. It’s easier to smile than to frown! However, I heard a story about a man facing 95 charges of child molestation & believe me, that made me very angry!

  127. I was hopeful today that my son will be able to find a nice truck at a reasonable price. His was totaled last month when a careless driver hit him head-on.

  128. Each & every day is a blessing to me; more so after having been thru cancer four times in the last 10 years. So, just waking up today made me happy!! 🙂

  129. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad at the melting ice: wet, slippery, cold…

  130. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful to be having a peaceful weekend with beers and bacon.

  131. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy we had pastries and tea for breakfast today.

  132. I’, a bit angry that i am still coughing after being sick 2 weeks ago. Just talking and even breathing, makes me cough!

  133. My daughter won a humidifier a while back, and it just arrived today. I am hopeful that it will help me with my coughing.

  134. Thursday is the end of my work week. Thursdays are nice and they make me happy! Plus, I have an evening to myself tonight.

  135. I am a little mad right now. My little boy is given a boatload of homework to complete each week and most of it, including his spelling list, I have to go online to print at home. My son is not enjoying school like he used to and this concerns me.

  136. I was happy today when I called in about an increase on our waste bill and not only did the representative get rid of the increase but she lowered our overall normal bill! She guaranteed it for a year! Woohoo!

  137. Happy today to get a haircut and the sun is shining.
    Hopeful that there will be more sunshine tomorrow.
    No mad today.

  138. I have been out of work for 6 weeks due to illness/surgery/recovery, so today I went in to make sure all of my paperwork was in order so that I can return to work next week. I couldn’t walk 5 feet without someone stopping to give me a hug! It felt really good that so many people cannot wait for me to come back. Plus, everyone noticed that I had lost weight (15 lbs) and that I looked healthy (compared to my last day of work when I was pale and ghostly and looked like I was going to pass out any second).

  139. Why be happy today? Hmm, it’s hard to be happy when everybody is sick or getting sick, lol. I’m happy I’m not sick!

  140. Today, I’m hopeful that the flu will not hit me! It has downed several family members, but so far I’ve been lucky.

  141. Today I am mad because my klout score fell AGAIN. I keep giving other people klout on a daily basis but no one ever returns the favor and it is getting old. I don’t know what else to do to raise my score other than what I am doing. I just wish that people gave what they got, and then everyone would be happy.

  142. I am hopeful today that the replacement product I am getting in the mail will not be damaged in the same way the original product was. I fear it is just poor quality and, no matter how many times they send replacements, it will never be resolved.

  143. I’m hoping that no-one gets injured in the fierce storms that are hitting Ireland at the moment. Driving is certainly scary in the wind – last night we had winds up to 120 miles per hour.

  144. Mad because I’m having to get the PayPal Resolution Centre involved with a recent eBay purchase – I’ve given them every chance but they’re just ignoring my messages & emails. I always give people the benefit of the doubt but enough is enough.

  151. I’m feeling a bit unhappy because the kindle fire I received as a gift seems to be missing. My husband was using it last and is trying to find it.

  152. Today I felt hopeful about hearing from a friend who left her class workbook with me. I’d like to get it back to her before next week.

  153. I felt happy today, coming home to some yummy leftovers for dinner. Easy dinner of teriyaki pork sandwiches.

  154. What made me mad today was I’m waiting for licensure before I can start a job and I guess I forgot to sign a page of the necessary paperwork. A quick fix but I’m mad at myself for missing that.

  155. Trying to put together a budget actually makes me mad. I’m mad that I have to budget, since I went on disability grocery shoppinghas taken on a whole new meaning of couponing and watching sales.

  156. Why be happy today? Well, I’m glad I’m still fairly healthy even though half my family is sick! Hopefully, they will get better quick.

  157. Oh, why am I mad today? I’m more fed up than mad. Whatever the bug is that’s going around, it just will not go away! It hops from one person to another in our family!

  158. I am happy today because I took an extra day off from work. I’m just catching up on giveaways and looking at magazines I have stacked up! Have a great day everyone!

  159. My 5 year old daughter this morning told me that she was not “feeling” school today… Mainly because she thought she was going to miss church tonight

  160. I have to get ready for tonight’s Pantomime performance now but I’m so cold I don’t want to take a shower! I’ve got so many layers on I’ll have to unpeel like an onion and am not looking forward to it. Here’s hoping Spring shows herself soon!

  161. The wintry weather has returned & Ireland has snow! Doesn’t happen too often (apart from the high mountain areas) but I’m sure the novelty will soon wear off! This country is just not used to bitterly cold weather, I’m full of admiration for all of you who live through hard winters every year.

  162. I’m just so happy to have a warm, dry, safe place to call my home. There are so many people who have lost their homes due to the recession or whose homes are not safe places to be in, whether due to drink, drugs or violence/neglect.

  163. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful the water will be back soon for use.

  164. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy it’s getting warmer today after days of under -10 celcius degrees.

  165. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad the whole building’s water system is out of order today.

  166. I was happy to get my infusion today after missing 2 weeks due to bronchitis.
    Hopeful that the sun will shine tomorrow.
    No mad today.

  167. Why am I happy today? Hmm, actually, it’s a pretty gray, dreary day here in KY. I’m as happy as I can be on a day like this, lol.

  168. I had to undergo another internal exam & more blood tests today. Hopefully should have some answers before the end of the week.

  169. Not mad, bad or sad (so far) today. Another 6 hours to go before a new day so who knows? Don’t count your chickens & all that!

  170. Well, Dad’s home after a night in hospital. They managed to control the pain but can’t drain his knee until he comes off Warfarin so that will happen next week. He didn’t manage to sleep in hospital but has done nothing but since he got home earlier today so at least he’s feeling a bit happier.

  171. I’m feeling a little mad that I am having so much trouble getting a particular song on the keyboard. Both lines are written in bass clef – very unusual and difficult for me to process!

  172. I feel hopeful that my daughter will be able to attend the relationship class at church tonight. It would really benefit her.

  173. I am “mad” this morning because I woke up an hour early for my dentist appointment and then they cancelled because the hygienist is sick. Ugh!

  174. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful it’s not so cold today.

  175. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad at the enormous snow coming last night. Now traffic is a mess.

  176. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy my flowers are blooming today despite the cold.

  177. I was very happy when I realized I was singing at the pool and not coughing.
    Hopeful that I’m well on the mend.
    No mad to day

  178. Feeling just a little mad that I can’t seem to find some coupons I printed out on Sunday. I know they’re here somewhere!

  179. I just got a haircut on Saturday and it seemed a little short. Today I was able to style it in a way I liked, so feeling hopeful that it’ll work for me.

  180. I don’t have to go to work on Mondays! It was a happy day of just getting things done around the house.

  181. I’m actually hoping that Dad gets kept in hospital. I know that that sounds kind of strange, but at least Mom would be able to relax knowing that he’s being cared for, & he would have pain control whenever he needed it.

  182. Well, the smile didn’t last long. Growing old sucks. My sister has had to take Dad into A & E (Accident & Emergency) because he’s in so much pain with his knee. At 81 he’s prepared to accept a certain amount of wear & tear but not this kind of pain. He’s really upset and it’s so horrible to see him like this. We have photos of him alongside his tank in the desert in Egypt during the Suez crisis in ’56 & he really looked like a hero: well over 6 foot & muscles galore. Now he needs help to do simple things & that’s what upsets him the most.

  183. I woke up & saw clear skies & sunshine so that put a big smile on my face! The stormy weather has finally shifted away from Ireland and on to the United Kingdom & mainland Europe. Got all the beds stripped & the sheets are a-blowing in the fresh air as I write.

  184. The only thing to make me mad today is this icy frigid weather. Hate winter and worry about my boyfriend going to and from work on ice covered roads.

  185. I gave myself the day off from any laundry, cleaning or even couponing. Very happy I don’t have to do anything except make dinner

  186. Why am I happy today? Well, half my family seems to be coming down with something, but at least I don’t have it…yet.

  187. Today I am hopeful because hubby’s tooth is feeling much better today than yesterday. Yesterday it was hurting him so badly that even vicodin did not dull the pain! Today, he is down to just regular tylenol helping! We were fearing it was an abscess but now we are fairly certain it was that large chunk of popcorn he pulled out of his crown. LOL

  188. Today I am happy because my hubby stayed home and didn’t have to drive in this horrible weather. We got freezing rain all night and it is currently snowing. The sidewalk is a sheet of ice!

  189. I was hoping today that my kids would not be sick anymore. Instead, they were worse today with fevers jumping near 105 🙁

  190. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad at the stupid people who think they could call any time regardless of time zone differences.

  191. I was a upset when I couldn’t get to my daughter’s side to comfort her when she was in the hospital. She’s going to college in California and I’m in Delaware.

  192. Even though my daughter was put in the hospital today she’s alright and they released her about 30 min. ago. That makes me extremely happy…tears of joy flowing right now!

  193. Not feeling mad about anything in particular, but am a little discouraged that my daughter did not care for the town she was thinking of going to school in. Now she needs to come up with plan B.

  194. We got some much needed rain here in southern California. I am feeling hopeful that it will continue tomorrow on my day off. Love the rain!

  195. Had a nice morning at church today. It always makes me happy to see my church family, and worship God together.

  196. I’m happy that I keep getting better.
    Hopeful that I’ll be well enough for Tuesday infusion.
    Mad that the Broncos don’t seem to have their act together today.

  197. I was mad at my computer this morning as I could not get it to do what I wanted. Even shut it down numerous times and started it back up. Even did a full security scan on it. Even called it names and threatened it! Then discovered that it was not the computers fault as the whole neighborhood had lost internet connection!

  198. I woke up this morning and was able to get out of bed! This makes me hopeful that I am getting stronger daily after having a near death experience with my health in recent months.

  199. I was happy that I did not have to go out into this brutal cold weather today. I was able to stay inside and stay warm!

  200. Yoga made me happy again today, but that is my answer from yesterday LOL Today I took a restorative class with Kelly and it was nice to just stretch and relax!

  201. I’m hoping that plenty of baking soda, orange zest & vinegar will shift the stink – hate using chemical sprays.

  202. Got home still buzzing with adrenaline only to find a stray cat locked in the utility room/back door entrance hall. And a tomcat at that! Ugh! He’s sprayed everything & all the washing I had airing now pongs to high heaven – I’ll have to get on the gloves & start scrubbing the walls, doors – everything. Lord only knows how someone (NOT me) managed to lock him in – nobody’s admitting to it!

  203. I’m not really mad about anything today. I am a little draggy today, and would have gladly spent the day in bed just to stay warm!

  204. I am mad that my lawn looks genuinely pathetic compared to the others on the block, but I just don’t have it in me to do any better with it.

  205. Why am I happy today? Well, Directv finally worked out their beef with NBC, so I got to watch SNL last night, lol. Of course, it was a rerun. Oh, well.

  206. Really more like I am hopeful about those grass seeds; since I didn’t water them for an entire week since they were put down (no, I don’t have automatic sprinklers like a sane person would).

  207. What made me mad is that my husband thinks keeping a fan on will keep the air circulating, it does except the air is like 12 degrees in this joint & he’s like put a sweater on. Ugh!

  208. Today I am mad because the brand new pans that I just won and have not even used are already chipping after only being run thru the dishwasher one time. INSANE! Such cheap quality. I am glad they were free and I will use them until they truly break, but it is so sad that today’s quality is so low. That anyone would sell things that chip/break/crack after only going thru a dishwasher cycle says a lot about our country. Just so sad.

  209. Today I am hopeful that the personal changes that I have decided to make to show myself love will work. I am hopeful that I will be able to stick to my small goals to turn them into larger changes. Sorry to be vague, but it is personal. 😀

  210. Today I am happy because yesterday we got ALL of the remaining holiday stuff taken down and put away for the year. My house is back to normal! LOL I enjoy the decorations SO much, but enough is enough.

  211. It’s early in the morning but I guess what has made me happy is that I’m not sick! My kids are both running high temps and I was afraid I was going to be sick but so far I’m fine!

  212. As for what made me MAD today, a relative in fact. A selfish one who only thinks of his/her own self and likes to make troubles for the rest of us. So yeap.

  213. What made me hopeful today was knowing that I’ll be getting a birthday pampering treat soon. In like…2 weeks time. With my girlfriends, so YAY!

  214. Nothing has made me happy today. Lots of bad news in fact. BUT, yesterday was a good day as we celebrated my upcoming birthday (which is next week) at one of my fave restaurants so YAY! Got to see my girlfriends and have yummy food.

    Thanks for this!

  215. I felt hAppy today as we went to a pro soccer game and the Comets beat the Revolution big time to remain undefeated

  216. I was angry today as DH and I got into a big argument over this that and the other, argh, I can’t stand these fights

  217. Uggh. What really make me mad today was getting something in the mail from a doctor’s bill that was from back in 2012 where my insurance just recently decided that they should not have paid back then and make the doctor refund the money. So I got a bill from them. I mean 2 almost 3 years ago..That is crazy!!!

  218. Talking to my Dad and he made me realize that things could be alot worse than they are. He made me have hope that maybe just maybe something positive would happen. He always makes me feel hopeful.

  219. Feeling very mad at myself for accidently putting my fitbit through the washer and dryer. I am sooooo hoping I didn’t ruin it!

  220. I felt hopeful for my daughter who had an outing with a friend to see a movie. She doesn’t get out much so this is exciting.

  221. I am Happy that the temperature reached 55 degrees with sunshine.
    Hopeful that I am getting over this cold.
    No mad today.

  222. What made me mad today? My husband! lol Really, he makes huge messes in the kitchen and just leaves them. Like today he was getting ready for work, making his lunch and left out every thing! So irritating!

  223. I’m hopeful that we all feel better by next week, so we can at least go to the grocery store. We’ve been stuck in this house for a few weeks.

  224. I just hope the bill for repairing my car isn’t going to be astronomical. If it is then I’m going to have to borrow money from somewhere, but where? Dad says I could always sell my body, but quite honestly only an imbecile would offer anything for this old bod!

  225. No mad, bad or evil thoughts today at all! Mind you, it’s only 7.30pm so anything could happen before lights out.

  226. Just back from another packed matinée house & a standing ovation! Terrific audience who gave as good as they got. That’s 2 down, 7 to go!

  227. My 7 year old grandson, Andrew, played his first flag football game of the season today. His team WON and he played great!

  228. What made me happy today is that we picked out a color for our baby’s nursery! We are both super indecisive so this sounds like a little but is really a big deal for us. 🙂

  229. Why be mad today? Hmm, I really haven’t been mad today. I am a little irritated at people who feel the need to tell you how you ‘ought to’ live your life, lol.

  230. I stopped at the sign that reads, ‘stop here on red’, which exists next to the outlet drive of a fire station, in case they get a call. The idiot behind me wasn’t having it and went around me thus blocking the fire station exit. That made me mad today

  231. The instantaneous function of Nook and Kindle books being in my hands with a click made me happy today!

  232. Today I am mad because I can’t seem to control my reactions to other people’s negativity. I keep absorbing it and making it my own. It really ticks me off that people are negative to begin with and want to pass that on to others, but my inability to resist being sucked in to the drama lately is really getting me down.

  233. Good morning! Outside it is sunny and snow on the grown. Can’t wait to get outside and play with my girls!

  234. Today I am hopeful that two giveaway sponsors will make right their mistakes. One sent me the wrong thing and one sent me broken stuff. ugh. LOL They seem keen to make things right though!

  235. Today I am happy because, yet again, the sun is shining in my window. Also, my hubby is in the kitchen making his “famous” vegetarian sausage gravy and biscuits while I sip on my hazelnut latte and enter this giveaway. Life is good!

  236. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful we could have the car fixed before evening so we could have a leasure drive somewhere.

  237. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad the car broke down at the weekend and now my man has to fix it.

  238. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy we had a very American breakfast with bacon and egg!

  239. What made me mad…my sons left the wet bath towel on the floor even though I’ve reminded them not to do that…

  240. Happy to be feeling better again today and having a good swim class.
    Hopeful that tomorrow I’ll be even better and enjoy the 50 degree day.
    No mad today.

  241. What makes me mad… My kids broke a product I was about to do a review on, but I did get some pictures so it’s not a complete waste. I also had to deal with my ex-husband’s bs today too.. That’s a rant within itself..

  242. With the holidays our finances have taken a serious hit making it almost impossible to make it to the grocery store this week. Made me mad.

  243. Why am I hopeful? I’m hopeful I’ll get to watch some grown-up TV after my 5 year old nephew goes home, lol!

  244. Why am I mad today? Well, I’m not really made, but I’ve spent the last several hours watching PAW Patrol & SpongeBob, so I’m about ready for some grown-up TV, lol.

  245. Just a bit mad today because when I got into my car yesterday there was a puddle under my feet: the water bottle for the wipers has sprung a leak! I’ve left the car in with my local garage but will have it back this evening. He reckons it’s just a hose come loose & won’t cost much (touch wood!).

  246. Hoping that my voice holds out for the 9 performances – two hours of belting out the songs every night is a heck of a lot of singing!

  247. Feeling tons better, weather’s cold & stormy, but I’ve a roof over my head, Pantomime opens tonight so adrenaline is beginning to kick in – bring it on 2015 I can handle it! Oh, yes, and it’s Friday!

  248. The fake that it stopped snowing and isn’t -18 below is making me very happy at least I don’t have to bundle up like an Eskimo in my house because the furnace can’t seem to keep up darn big ole farm house.

  249. Today I am mad because I am SO tired of chasing bloggers down for information. I leave comments on their FB walls, I tag them repeatedly, I email them directly from their blogs, I leave comments on their blogs, I tweet to them, and NOTHING! I know life is busy. I know things get in the way. But really? You say you want to “connect” with your reader but I don’t see any evidence of you even trying. I am NOT the only one with this issue. It is SO frustrating. GRRR!

  250. Today I am hopeful that I can get some of my photography published on Treehugger.com. My hubby found out that they take amature photos and he said that he sees many published that are not as good as mine (his words not mine LOL). Wouldn’t that be SO cool?!

  251. Today I am happy because the sun is shining, it is Friday. hubby is off for the weekend, and he made it to work safely every day this week, even in the bad weather. Lots to be thankful for and happy about there!

  252. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad at the people who are always on sick leave despite deadlines.

  253. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy it’s the weekend and I’m gonna eat good stuff!

  254. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful to have a short Friday and a long sleep today.

  255. I got a little angry when I thought I had put enough of my homemade garlic butter on the sourdough bread and realized I didn’t. It just didn’t have the taste I thought it should. I must be more generous with the amount next time.

  256. When the recruiter said my husband’s resume looked great and he couldn’t believe how much experience my husband had made me feel hopeful.

  257. I tried to use a coupon at rite Aid today, but the register would not take it for some reason. Feeling a bit annoyed regarding this.

    1. Cheryl, I had a $10 off coupon at CVS I tried to use today for cold meds, it should have covered the whole cost but I had to pay the tax. That annoyed me. It wasn’t much, just the principal!

  258. I am feeling hopeful as my daughter made it out to her destination on the train and looking into going back to school. Am hopeful she was able to find an apartment.

  259. Someone asking me a question and then actively not listening to the answer made me angry…or at least aggravated…

  260. I”m happy that I feel better today with the drugs my doctor gave me yesterday.
    Hopeful that the cold (bronchitis) will go away.
    No mad today, just irritation that I’m still coughing.

  261. I really am the world’s worst patient. After all my good intentions I went for a shower & decided to scrub the bathroom tiles while I was there. Now I’m cold & worn out – honestly I could kick myself sometimes!

  262. I am physically telling myself every half an hour or so not to do something unless it’s of vital importance. I mean the bird poo on the window can stay another day without my world crumbling around me, particularly as it’s blowing a gale outside. By doing this I’m hoping that I won’t tire myself & end up in bed again.

  263. Happiness today came courtesy of good ol’ Mother Nature – I’m feeling better! Now I’m in the danger zone when I usually try to catch up on things that didn’t get done & end up wearing myself out and getting ill all over again.

  264. I can’t say that I’m really mad today. I am very irritated with this weather. I can’t wait for Spring…or at least ‘normal’ Winter, lol. Canada can keep her Polar Vortex!!

  265. I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to succeed with my plan to lose some weight & improve my health this year. I’m going to try, anyway.

  266. Something that made me hopeful today is that my doctor filled out all of my return to work paperwork, so I can go back to work in a week! I am excited because I am starting to miss my job just a teeny bit. Well, mainly my friends at work.

  267. One thing that made me mad today is when my husband went to try to start my car (I have been unable to drive in 5 weeks and since it is low and hard to get in and out of with my surgery I have not been a passenger either) the battery was dead. He went to give it a jump and he remembered he had to jump his Mom’s car on Thanksgiving and he let her take the jumper cables in case she needed another jump and in all of the craziness between my illness, surgery, and recovery, he forgot to get them back.

  268. I am happy today because I am going out to lunch with my best friend from work. I have been recovering from surgery for five weeks and I have not been able to see her the entire time (she works overnights) so I cannot wait to catch up!

  269. Today I am hopeful that we do not have to leave the house. We have plenty of food for everyone to enjoy and we have some movies to watch together.

  270. What made me happy when I woke up was being the first one up on a cold frigid morning and snuggling with my dog Brutus. Peace and quiet no video games being played, wonderful!

  271. Today I am mad because I can NOT get a particular blogger to respond to ANY of my emails. I won a giveaway on her blog on 12-22. We wrote back and forth that day and she promised to have the Etsy seller contact me about my prize. I have yet to hear from the Etsy seller and I have written the blogger again to let her know twice now and she has not responded. I am very discouraged and worry that the Etsy seller is just going to take the publicity and never fulfill my win. 🙁 I hope nothing is seriously wrong in their lives but, unless they both have automatic posting set for their pages, they are posting content daily. GRRR!

  272. Today I am hopeful that the Winter Solstice tree will come down this weekend. LOL! I took down all the New Year decor yesterday afternoon and hopefully hubby will help me with the tree this weekend. I am tired of looking at it. LOL

  273. Today I am happy because my mom has learned how to text! LOL She basically REFUSED to email me on a regular basis and I HATE talking on the phone, so we only talked once a week and never shared things via email or anything. Now, we are texting a few times a day and I feel much more connected to her. I really like that.

  274. What made me mad was finding out my daughters dr may not be on our list this yr, after keeping our insurance was made primarily for my dr in that network, no one informed us during enrollment so I am beyond MAD

  275. What made me happy was spending time we my youngest, who has been having some issues, she is doing sooooo well, we had a great day in spite of the freezing cold

  276. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful to be able to go to sleep early today for a long working day tomorrow.

  277. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad at the messy roads when snow melts. It’s dirty and slippery as hell.

  278. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy I won a bunch of kindle books today for reading.

  279. What made me happy today was my grandchildren calling me to see if I felt better and to tell me they loved me. Talking to them always makes me happy!

  280. I was mad at myself today for not planning out dinner for my family. Got home from work with nothing to eat for dinner.

  281. I felt hopeful today for my daughter’s chances of getting a new apartment and going back to college.

  282. I am happy about the great deal I scored at Target today. Two boxes of taco shells, 4 cans of beans, and 4 boxes of pasta for only $5.

  283. Happy that the sun is shining.
    Hopeful that after my visit to the doctor today I’ll get rid of this bronchitis.
    Mad that I’m not well yet and it cost me $100 for visit & medicines.

  284. Something that made me hopeful was when I was at the gym. The last 2 times I worked out with my trainer I felt very sick and weak. Today I felt strong and that made me feel hopeful!

  285. Too many questions made me mad today. There is a direct correlation between the number of questions I am asked and my blood pressure. There is an inverse correlation between the number of questions asked and the lightness of my mood. This math lesson is brought to you by the wife of a man who fires daily endless questions at me regarding all things having to do with the computer!

  286. Something that made me Mad today….Hmm I guess it would have to be the Morning News that I saw. Just makes me Mad to see all of the terrorists acts going on! Something needs to happen to stop all of this ! People are just nuts!!

  287. Something that made me Hopeful today was seeing that the new Product that my son and I are selling on EBay is doing extremely well. In less than 7 days we have sold 60 items and the product looks like its going to be a fantastic investment for us. Always hopeful to be able to make some extra money 🙂

  288. We recycle pop cans. It makes me mad that my boyfriend just stacks empty cans on the kitchen table instead of instantly crushing them and putting them in the bag in the garage. Its so cold today I just put them in a box and set the box in the garage so I’m mad that I didn’t follow through with what I always get on his case about.

  289. The one thing that 1st made me Happy today was turning my PC on and seeing my 1 year old Grandsons Face as my screensaver 🙂 Then a few minutes later being able to here him in the back bedroom when he woke up and started calling for his Momma and Dada 🙂 That little boy is my Joy and Happiness every single day! Im a Happy Grandma for sure 🙂

  290. I’m hopeful today that I can get all my routine done today and also a weeks worth of couponing. Need to make a list as I am trying to save as much as possible.

  291. What can make me mad today? Well, the news today is about the militant attack on that Paris magazine office, killing 12. So discouraging when we are reminded of man’s inhumanity to man, as the saying goes. And now I just wait for some nut from ‘the other side’ to decide to retaliate against some Muslim establishment that probably had nothing at all to do with this…and the vicious circle continues. They say the Chinese saying “May You live In Interesting Times” is actually a curse. I believe we are living in interesting times for sure!

  292. Today, I’m hopeful that this Arctic Chill Weather Thing will go away quickly! Seriously, this is KY! Yes, it gets cold in Winter, but below zero???

  293. Today, I’m happy that my knees aren’t aching so bad, lol. That’s amazing when you consider how cold it is outside!

  294. Why am I mad today? My husband! Yup definitely him. I should have enough common sense to leave but sometimes its easier said then done

  295. What makes me sad more than angry is my daughter not feeling good and the school not understanding they are so anal

  296. Happy – Today the first thing that made my Happy was my sweet and sassy Pug Puppy Olivia. If it was not for her my days would be filled with Darkness.

    Hopefull – This is a hard one. I was looking forward to a good new year but I have had one thing after another happen already and just making me crazy. I guess my first hopefully thing that made me think today would be a good day is my sick son was not throwing up this morning and I think he is over the flu.

    Mad – that is easy. TRAFFIC. I hate traffic especially after being hit by a drunk driver years ago anytime I am in traffic in the morning and see people driving crazy and likely to cause a wreck it makes me upset and there were several wrecks on my morning commute today.

  297. Today I am mad because of war and terrorism. I don’t often talk about stuff like this and, as a general rule, I avoid fear-mongering news reports and get my news directly from liberal, more trustworthy sources (I hope!) online. My heart is furious for the people of France and the horrible tortuous event that took place there today. I will never understand how murder is the answer to anything. Why can’t humans just let each other live and believe what they want and live their own lives independently of what others do? Why so violent. Today is a day I am ashamed to call myself human.

  298. Today I am hopeful that they will find out who is responsible for the terrorist attack on France’s freedom of speech policy. I am so saddened for their people and for what these news workers went thru. Sending out loving, healing, positive energies to all involved.

  299. Today I am happy because I have a home that is paid in full and in pretty good shape, I have a warm bed to sleep in at night, I have a husband who is my best friend and takes care of me, and I have my health, which is not perfect but is better than a lot of people have.

  300. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful my man will keep up with his exercises.

  301. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad at the noisy snow plowing truck, it shakes the whole building up.

  302. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy I had reindeer soup as lunch today.

  303. Nothing really made me mad, but it was bit hard to see my 2 week vacation end. Sleeping in and relaxing are addictive.

  304. Today was the first day back to school after Christmas vacation. I am hopeful for a productive time with my students.

  305. I am happy to have been able to attend a class along with my daughter, learning more about relationship issues.

  306. Today I’m hoping that my health continues to improve and that I’ll be ok for my job interview on Thurs.

  307. Nothing got me mad today (so far) apart from the usual aches & pains & coughs & wheezes etc. etc.! Oh, and the January blues but the Panto will soon sort them out!

  308. Hoorah, finally feeling better. First day up & dressed since Saturday & certainly feeling lots better but still not 100% so taking it easy.

  309. Why be hopeful today? Oh, why not. Soon, the cold will pass & all the flu bugs will go away & we will be saying it’s too hot!

  310. Why am I mad today? Oh, I just watched the news & saw a story about a child who was being kept tied up 16 hours a day by her parents. A 3 year old! Argh! That just makes me so angry! Well, Mom & Dad are off to jail, now, so hopefully the child will be safe.

    1. Tamra, WHAT?!?!?! WHAT could a 3 year old do?! OHMYGOSH…… I’m mad now too. That is so wrong. WHAT is WRONG with people?!!? Extra prayers headed out to that child tonight.

  311. There are so very many reasons to be happy today! It is a new year, the sun is shining and I am with my family and friends.

  312. Today, I’m happy to wake up & live a new day. It’s another opportunity to reach my goals; the ones I didn’t accomplish yesterday, the ones I plan for tomorrow. Everyday makes me happy, even if it’s only for a small amount if time because of the love I receive from my grandchildren. They are my sunshine when a day might otherwise be dark.

  313. Today I am mad because last night we went grocery shopping and I forgot to get salt for my sidewalk and it is a freaking skating ring out there for the mailman and us. LOL ugh. I tell you what…if it isn’t on my list, it does NOT get purchased. LOL

  314. Today I am hopeful that I am coming out of my annual holiday funk. The holidays are bittersweet for me. Every year I am transported by my horribly nostalgic mind to my childhood. I have wonderful memories of the holidays and horribly painful ones. I spend the month weepy and happy and just a basic moody mess. LOL I am glad to start feeling like myself again.

  315. Today I am happy because, even thought we had 4 inches of snow overnight and are under a level 1 snow emergency, hubby made it to work safely. I HATE it when he has to commute in this kind of weather. So happy he is safe and sound!

  316. What made me mad today was irresponsible drivers driving carelessly in wet weather on the freeway.

  317. Happy that it warmed up today – from -6 to 52 degrees.
    Hopeful that this cold of mine will END!
    Mad that I’m still coughing and sneezing.

  318. I read a really great story today about a local boy who got adopted from foster care into a loving home, and that made me hopeful.

  319. Someone when back on an agreement they’d made with me today…it wasn’t a huge deal, but it did kinda make me mad 🙁

  320. I told someone about my New Year’s resolution today and she said “I’m gonna do that too!” That made me happy 🙂

  321. There is only one thing that made me mad today. My cable went out, but at least it was only for a short time!

  322. Something that made me happy today is that I got to take a long, much needed nap without any interruptions!

  323. I went to Target to take advantage of a special deal on dishwasher tabs. Unfortunately, my store was completely out of stock. Made me feel a bit annoyed.

  324. I feel hopeful for an easy dinner plan tonight. My husband got a Panda Express gift card for Christmas an wants to use it tonight!

  325. I got to spend the afternoon with my daughter shopping at the thrift store. And we got a great buy on a jacket. That makes me happy.

  326. What made me mad today was my DirecTv bill. I had no idea they were raising the price again. It seems like every time I turn around the rates go up.

  327. I took my daughter’s car today to get new tires, so I am hopeful it will be safe in this coming winter!

  328. One thing that made me happy today was going with my daughter to her baby doctors! Excited about my soon to be born grandson!

  329. So far nothing has made me mad today. I know it’s an odd thing when that happens because I’m usually always mad about something.

  330. What made me hopeful today? I won an awesome prize for my grandson today that I think he will absolutely love.

  331. My grand daughter made me happy today. To see her big wide eyed smile when she woke up this morning is a wonderful way to start the day!

  332. Nothing’s got me mad today other than my own impatience at being ill. I’m a terrible patient & always try to do too much too soon. I’m determined, this time, to give nature all the time it needs to get me better.

  333. I’m hoping that I’ll be fit again for later in the week – I’m missing another rehearsal tonight but this way I should be able for the full dress rehearsal on Wednesday, a job interview on Thursday then opening night on Friday. Somewhere in between I’ll manage to get some food shopping done – getting a bit fed up of porridge (what you in the US call oatmeal) & Xmas biscuits/crackers.

  334. Phew! At last I seem to be getting over this chesty cough – it’s taken a while but I’m getting there. I’m taking it easy again today & really minding myself for once. Listening to my body is not something I’m good at – I usually fight it till I drop. Must be growing up!

  335. Oh boy….what made me mad? I have this darn laptop that I wanted to sell, but I opened it today to reset it and get it ready…..It won’t take my password!!!! I don’t even remember setting a password on it! WTH! I have put in any and all passwords that I can possibly think of. Hopefully I can figure it out! God bless everyone!

  336. I am hopeful that I will finally follow through with getting myself healthy this year. Have I started it yet? No….but I really am hopeful that I will. I also have hope that I will find the jewel that fell out of my ring. I actually lost my ring a few days ago, but my Mom found it. Then a day later the jewel fell out! Darn!!!!!

  337. Well…the thing that made me happy? I woke up to enjoy another day! I’m blessed….I have my health, and my family. Seriously, I know it’s cheesy, but it really makes me happy that I woke up. With all of the bad crap that happens everyday (and the bad stuff on the news), it is good to just wake up and be able to live!!!! Happy New Year everyone!

  338. Today I’m happy my niece & nephews went back to school. It finally seems the Holidays are over & all is normal again, lol.

  339. Having terrible dreams this morning before waking made me mad. I hate it when that sets the tone for the day because you just can’t quit thinking about it.

  340. Today I am hopeful I can get everything done that I need to. I have a mammogram tomorrow and also need to run errands so I need to get more done today than usual.

  341. Today I am mad because my fav Italian restaurant just finished a remodel that looks horrid and cheap and yet they more than DOUBLED the prices on their menu! I was SO disappointed when we went there and saw this. We used to go there all of the time because it was affordable. Now, we won’t be able to go there hardly at all. 🙁

  342. Today I am hopeful that we will get the snow they are calling for and hubby will have a snow day at home with me tomorrow! LOL They are calling for 5-7 inches by morning, so fingers crossed!

  343. Today I am happy because even though it is STUPID cold outside (12 degrees with -3 windchill) the sun is shining and that is so nice after the days of dreariness we have had in the past week! The sun feels so warm on my back coming in the window. It is bliss!

  344. One thing that made me happy today is that it is my birthday! I am happy to have made it another year, especially because I recently had a major health issue!

  345. The computers went down at the DMV and I have to go back there to start the whole process again. That made me mad today

  346. What made me happy today? Except this giveaway? :))
    What made me happy today was waking up to a beautiful day filled with lots of things to do!

  347. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful to be dancing to good music at the party tonight.

  348. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m angry the long vacation is over and now work is piled up.

  349. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy I have girls’ night today to shoo away the monday blue.

  350. I am 35 weeks pregnant, so every time I felt my baby move or hiccup I felt hopeful.
    It is quite reassuring to feel your baby move!

  351. I was slightly angry when someone I knew waited to the last moment to do something they were supposed to do weeks ago. Yes, I’m being very vague in case that person ever read this comment 🙂

  352. I was hopeful when I saw that my husband noticed that the houses in a state we might move to were pleasantly inexpensive! We had no idea that they were priced like that.

  353. Today is the first day of putting my resolution for this year into action….weekly Sunday dinners with the family. A roast and a baked zucchini side dish are in the oven right now…this makes me happy!

  354. Happy that the sun came out today.
    Hopeful that I’ll get better soon.
    Mad that I still have this cold and had to postpone my infusion for another week.

  355. I get mad when people act stupid and hurt themselves and others with no regard to doing the right thing.

  356. Sleeping in made me happy. I didn’t realize how zonked I was over the holidays, rushing around. A weekend of lazing around and doing nothing has been wonderful!

  357. What made me mad is that people just do not have courtesy for each other. People can be so rude & have an all about me attitude. I can not stand it!

  358. I just hope that I get better asap – I haven’t worked in a while so want to be able to give it my best shot at the interview on Thursday.

  359. I haven’t felt mad just rotten – boo hoo, pity me – I’m feeling rotten & have spent most of the day in bed feeling miserable. I missed another rehearsal & we open on Friday and I have a job interview on Thursday – so maddening when this happens. The best laid plans & all that…

  360. Haven’t really felt happy about anything today, just down in the dumps because of this chesty cough. I’m shivery & feeling hot/cold all over.

  361. A guy hit a cat in front of my house, got out to see if it lived, then sped off when he saw me coming outside. It didn’t. That made me mad today

  362. Seeing neighbors, who have never recycled before, putting out recycling bins for weekly pickup gives me hope today

  363. I’m happy today because I get another whole day to spend with my boyfriend. Its the end of his 4 day weekend and love watching sports and movies together.

  364. Why am I hopeful? Well, my niece & nephews go back to school tomorrow! I don’t have to get up before daylight to babysit! Yay for school, lolol!

  365. Why am I mad today? Can I be mad about Winter weather? Yesterday, it actually got up to 59. Today, it’s dropping quickly & by Wednesday the high will be about 17! (In Kentucky.) Geeze! This is nuts!

  366. What made me happy today? Well, I spent the morning with all 3 of my brother’s kids. And they were behaving! Shocker, lol!

  367. Today I am mad because the Swedish pancakes I had been looking forward to having ALL weekend did not happen. Hubby said the recipe, which he always makes, did not call for eggs, so we didn’t go to the store yesterday like planned. Guess what? It calls for eggs. GRRRR!

  368. Today I am hopeful that my mood will improve. I started feeling really cranky last night after we lost $40 we didn’t have to lose at the casino. bleh. I am hoping that over the course of today my mood will improve. LOL

  369. Today I am happy because I am really cranky but hubby is taking it in stride and babying me. Sometimes you just need to be coddled and this is one of those days.

  370. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy we woke up early today for a long walk along the beach.

  371. I had to make a return of a Christmas gift today. I assumed the long checkout line was for returns, when, in fact, the returns line had no one in it and I waited in the wrong line quite a while.

  372. I felt hopeful today that I was able to do something beneficial for my church. I bought 10 packs of paper for them from Staples with easyrebate.

  373. I’m happy to be in a warm house and not out in the cold & snow.
    Hopeful (still) that this cold will LEAVE!
    Mad that I’m still coughing and sneezing and blowing my nose.

  374. I’m a bit fed up that my chesty cough is back along with a temperature. I have to be fit & well for my big operation next month and if this doesn’t shift soon it’s going to be a big problem. I’ve spent most of the day in bed & missed a rehearsal for the Panto, but I have to look after my health.

  375. Putting my kitties on a diet due to some tummy issues they have been having. Very hopeful we make this work.

  376. Why am I happy today? Hmm, I’m not sure I am. Well, things could be, & have been, much worse. So, I’ll be happy about that.
