1,055 thoughts on “$35 Giveaway Your Way January 2015!

  1. I woke up this morning and I noticed that while I was sleeping my daughter stayed up late last night wrapping all of the Christmas presents!! When I glanced at the tree this morning it was no longer bare with wire showing because we forgot to buy a tree skirt lol. It now has beautifully wrapped presents underneath. It’s so beautiful and I just feel so blessed to have a daughter that would stay up late to do that for her family 🙂

  2. I always have renewed hope every morning for a new day, and as I woke up this morning I am feeling very blessed and praising God for my blessings. 🙂

  3. Honestly, it is very early, but it makes me angry any time they mention the victim of police brutality, the “I can’t breathe” victim, because it just makes me want to scream that he is dead! It is so WRONG!!! I just don’t understand how they let this man lay there and die. What is wrong with our police force? Get the hell off him for a second and at least see if he is for real or not. It would have taken a few seseconds to realize he was in trouble and get EMS. It’s ridiculous when convicted child murderers get treated better than somebody selling a couple of cigarettes. Absolutely reprehensible! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I would just love to win this! I looked at our wedding picture today that said love is hope, love never ends. Cheesy?!? Sorry! But it gives me HOPE. Merry Christmas!

  5. Today I am happy because I am still flying high from a wonderful Winter Solstice celebration yesterday. I have to say that it was probably the best holiday weekend hubby and I have had in a number of years!

  6. Today I am mad, or rather disappointed, because one of the things I had hoped to do for our Winter Solstice weekend was to go to a local historical reenactment. We found out that it is usually insanely crowded and so we decided not to go because we do not like crowds. I was so sad but our holiday weekend was still super!

  7. I am hopefully that I will get the last few things for Christmas bought, then all I have left is some produce to buy Wednesday. Yeah
    Happy Holidays

  8. One thing that made me happy today was finding out I won 3 months free of Netflix. I was going to have to cancel our subscription for a while because money is so tight, but now I don’t have to!

  9. One thing that made me hopeful was when I was holding one of our new foster kitties and my youngest cat came up and stood there sniffing her and there was no growling, hissing, or slapping. I should have knocked on wood though, because right after he sniffed her he popped her upside the head 🙁

  10. One thing that made me mad today… well not so much mad as aggravated and it gave me an eye twitch. Our middle cat went into the kitchen and stood there opening and slamming shut one of the kitchen cabinets…. over and over. Bam bam bam bam bam……..I am getting another eye twitch typing this 🙂

  11. One thing that made me happy today? My husband had breakfast cooked and on the table (grits, eggs, bacon, toast and coffee) this morning when I woke up. How sweet he is 🙂

  12. What made me happy today? Well, I got to spend the day with my 5 year-old nephew, & when I was exhausted he also was! He fell asleep, lol.

  13. I’m hopeful this week will go smoothly & my brother & niece will get over their colds. And I hope my youngest nephew isn’t coming down with a cold!

  14. What made me mad today? Oh, December alone can make me mad sometimes! It’s too cold, everybody is sick or getting sick & it gets dark at 5 p.m.

  15. What made me hopeful today? As I was going over my recipes, I feel comfortable that I have all the ingredients and will not have to go gro. shopping again. I just hope no surprises pop up that does send me to the store. Its crazy out there LOL!

  16. One thing that made me happy today is that I was able to sleep in! I slept until 9:30 AM! I had surgery on December 4th and I can only sleep on my back, which is very uncomfortable. I also have to get up to use the restroom several times a night. Last night I actually slept through the night! Small victories!

  17. One thing that made me hopeful today is that my friend self-published his book! The print version was available yesterday and the Kindle version came out today. I know he has been working very hard to get it ready and I am hopeful that the book will do well and he will find success as an author.

  18. One thing that made me mad today is that because I slept so late, I didn’t notice when my dog was trying to wake me up to go out so he had an accident on the floor. Since I cannot bend down due to my surgery, I had to wait for my husband to come home for lunch so that he could clean it up (which in turn made HIM mad).

  19. What really made me happy today is to finally see Monday come so I could get my prescription from the Pharmacy and get this antibiotic started. Hope it works this time, 4th one.

  20. I am really hopeful this antibiotic will work for me as this is the 4th one I have been on and I am at the end of my rope with the infection. I keep telling myself to stay positive. Stay positive! Not sure the pep talk is working but I will keep it up!

  21. Happiness was having a decent night’s sleep for the first time in ages – sheer bliss being able to wake naturally, turn over & doze for another 10 minutes before getting up – ahhhhh!

  22. Mad, well, a little bit annoyed at myself again: I changed the duvet cover on Mum & Dad’s bed before realising that I’d used the wrong cover – they got a present of it but Dad hates it (it’s really pink & pretty) so I had to do it all over again. It’s super king-sized and I’m only 5’ 6” and now my back’s hurting again.

  23. I hope that the weather stays reasonably good over Christmas – I’m carolling again on Christmas Eve. It’s an outdoor performance and as we live in Ireland chances are it’ll rain but we’ve had some beautiful crisp & dry days lately so fingers crossed!

  24. I am not mad today but I am sad that two of my granddaughters are sick and won’t be at our house for Christmas. I hope they are well to at least enjoy the day at their house. Not fun getting sick on Christmas.

  25. I am mad that I only got one leg shaved today. I wouldve really liked to shaved my right leg too. Now just my left is smooth while my right is wooly mammoth.

  26. I was mad today when I found out my brother is a jerk towards our parents. I am 2 hours away and it would be great to count on him sometimes.

  27. I am hopeful both my parents will continue to improve and will be out of the hospital (flu)
    for Christmas. I am planning to take the meal and go to their house.

  28. finishing everything on my errand list today made me very happy, and I even visited a couple extra places, tired, but done!

  29. Doing my daily reading, seeing ways the Lord loves me, in spite of all my mistakes, gives me hope that maybe I can achieve enough to show Him I love Him too and appreciate all that He has done for me, and does for me everyday!

  30. I was mad at myself today because I went to pick up a gift I thought my son-in-law would love, I found out I had to pay quite a bit more because I did not pre-order it. Steam! I have known quite a while I wanted to get this for him, but I did not follow up to see how I could have saved money on it!

  31. We did Christmas shopping , most of it is done. Then we did gift wrapping and got every thing in order. So I think we are ready for Christmas. Happy Holidays everyone. 🙂

  32. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful to be able to squeeze through the crowds today to finish shopping for Christmas.

  33. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy it’s the last day before the long holiday days off.

  34. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad at people who argue nonsense about trivial things at work.

  35. Numerous things made me happy today! I just underwent surgery on Saturday so what made me most happy is getting up by myself got the first time since then. Hoping to be out of the hospital by Christmas Day!

  36. Today I am hopeful because hubby took our vegetarian “meat”balls to his office potluck. I am hopeful that people will have an open mind and actually TRY them. I have taken vegetarian “meat” items to potlucks and had NO one willing to even TRY them. It hurt my feelings and I don’t want him to go thru that.

  37. Today I am mad because I qualified for an awesome mission on Smiley360 only to find out that the freebie coupons included in the mission were ONLY good at Publix. I don’t live anywhere near this store. Companies like this should ALWAYS make ALL of their missions available to EVERYONE who qualifies, OR they should pay attention to your profile and where you live and realize that you automatically do not qualify based on it. I wasted my time taking the surveys, got excited when accepted, only to have to pass on the mission due to the coupons being so limited. grrr

  38. Happy, happy, happy! Today’s my day off – hoorah! I’ve been whizzing around the house like a headless chicken all day cleaning everything in sight, followed by a long soak in a bath – mmm! No carols tonight so saving my voice for tomorrow night for the Christmas Eve festivities.

  39. It’s a very cold, wild & windy day here in SE Ireland & I’m crossing everything that it clears up for the open-air Carol Service tomorrow night. If not, I’ll have to take a hot water bottle and wrap up in a duvet!

  40. A bit fed up today ‘cos my Dad’s such a misery guts! I know he aches all over & he’s tired but sometimes I could shake him! For heaven’s sake he’s 81, what does he expect? And why, oh why, do Mum (who’s also 81, I might add!) & I have to do everything? I don’t know about you lot in the States, but over here we have a saying ‘Sure you’ll be a long time dead!’ In other words, make the best of what you have and to hell with it all!

  41. When my daughter told me all the things she got done around the house last night I was hopeful that she would feel up to vacuuming and steam cleaning the carpet. Unfortunately, last night seems to have set her back on her recovery from the flu 🙁

  42. I got mad when our oldest foster cat growled at and slapped one of the 4 month old foster kittens. Really? She weighs 3 pounds and purrs non-stop….. how can you growl and slap something so cute????

  43. I am happy today because their were lots of lemons on my tree to pick. My daughter loves being outside so we were out there together getting some to give our friends and hubby’s coworkers.

  44. My husband made me happy today when he ran to the store and got me eggs. I was in the middle of making cookies and I ran out of eggs. I really didn’t want to have to stop my cookie making momentum to go to the store for eggs.

  45. The way that people are driving today has made me mad. Well, maybe not mad. but I don’t want to be driving on the road with them.

  46. I am feeling hopeful today because I have already finished making 4 batches of cookies and I have just a few more batches to go, and I will then be done.

  47. Nothing really made me mad today. Got a lot done, getting ready for Christmas. Finished wrapping and did some cooking 🙂

  48. What made me hopeful today is that I heard a nice story about someone who gave a homeless man $100. He then watched and filmed the homeless man to see what he would do with the money. The homeless man went into a store, bought food and walked to a area where there were a number of other homeless people and he gave all the people food. It was quite heartwarming.

  49. My husband made me so hopeful today. We are going through a hard time and I was depreesed about it and he helped me feel hopeful about everything

  50. It made me angry today because my package was not delivered on time today like it was supposed to be so I am upset the my famiy will not ge it by christmas

  51. Today I am happy because, even though I don’t celebrate it, my hubby is off tomorrow for Christmas. I am looking forward to a very relaxed, low-key day of snuggling in bed and watching TV with him and eating lots of good breakfast food all day! LOL

  52. Today I am hopeful because I did a preliminary tax return to see what my refund would be this year and it came in at over $3700. If this stays the same or improves, I will be able to pay off some debt and get some things that my family really needs…not wants…needs!

  53. Today I am mad because my aunt only comments on posts that I post on FB that are in any way/shape/form negative or could be construed to be negative about my mother. I do NOT appreciate that. She is nowhere to be found on ANY other posts but always there with some snark or negativity if I mention my mom. I love my mom very much and joke about her often because she is funny, but my aunt has never liked my mom and her comments are really getting on my nerves. It is rude and inappropriate. FYI my aunt was my dad’s sister and my parents split up in the 80s, so yeah…not OK.

  54. One thing that made me happy is that my husband decided to clean out from under the couch. Guess where all our socks have been hiding? Plus we found a gift card that had been lost and 4.00 in change…. It’s the little things that make me happy!

  55. One thing that made me hopeful today is reading some research on my condition. I have a rare pregnancy related heart condition, and am currently undergoing evaluations for the heart transplant list. I found some alternative therapies and things that might help!

  56. I was mad at myself today for having to blow off another family get-together and disappoint people. I am so tired of having fibromyalgia

  57. Nothing makes me mad very often and I’m certainly not mad today. Well maybe a tiny bit mad that all the sugar cookies are gone – LOL!

  58. I am completely mad at MYSELF because I had everything ready, everything! That’s everything except some containers to put the five hundred Christmas cookies that I have made (don’t worry, they are in zip locks right now). So, I have to brave the stores just to buy them.

  59. I am angry at the weather forecast today. We are expecting up to 60 mph winds tonight and tomorrow and if the power goes out I won’t be able to cook our holiday dinner!

  60. My office was supposed to be open all day. The bosses all took the day off, and one of them called at 9 and said we could leave at noon – paid!

  61. I don’t get MAD very often, but I do get irritated. Stopped to buy BBQ on my way home and it took forever for them to get my order ready. I have things to do, dude – it’s Christmas eve!! haha

  62. What made me happy today? Well, my brother & his wife are off the next 3 day, so I don’t have to get up & babysit! Merry Christmas to me, lol!

  63. What made me happy today was receiving a Christmas card from a very dear friend who moved abroad years ago and we lost touch. She recently moved back to Ireland and I spent a lovely hour on the phone to her; it’s so nice to know that she’s back in my life.

  64. My back is driving me mad – the pain is as bad as ever and my chiropractor is away till the New Year. I hate taking painkillers etc. but if this keeps up I’ll have to, just to get through Christmas Day. At the moment I can’t even pick up things up if I drop them and I certainly can’t carry things – even filling the kettle hurts.

  65. I’m hoping that my back improves so that the pain isn’t so bad and that the weather improves a bit for the Carol Service tonight. I hate not being able to do things especially now when there’s so much to do. Poop, Hell’s Bells & fiddle-dee-dee!

  66. Merry Christmas to everyone! Can’t wait for the grandkids to wake up and open all their gifts and see the excitement on their faces.

  67. Mad today even though its Christmas because one of our children can’t seem to find the time to call or return our calls so we can see one of our newest grandsons. He is just a little over a year old and we maybe see him every three months.

  68. Watching my little granddaughter open her presents this morning made me very happy. It’s so nice to see Christmas through little ones’ eyes.

  69. I am hopeful because tomorrow we go to the SPCA and get a NEW DOG! (well, an old used dog that no one but us wants – which is better than new I think) It’s my Christmas present to myself

  70. I’m not mad about a thing (well, maybe I am mad at all of the irresponsible people who just dump their old or sick dogs and cats)

  71. Really happy about last night’s performance singing carols around the village Christmas tree. The weather was cold and crisp, the wind dropped so the candlelight was beautiful and the children’s faces were bright and happy. A wonderful tradition that makes the spirit come alive with hope and gratitude.

  72. So fed up with my back. It’s now so painful I can’t even lie down so at 7am I gave up trying and managed to get a couple of hours in the armchair but I’ve been tetchy due to lack of sleep & pain, in fact a proper Humbug! Feel like screaming & shouting so I’d better put on some relaxing music or a bit of meditatiion would probably help.

  73. I hope, hope, hope that this pain will ease up a bit. It’s very hard to be festive and full of the joys of the season, never mind wishing goodwill to all men when even standing still hurts like hell. I guess I just have to let nature take it’s course but patience has never been my forté.

  74. I am happy to celebrate the holidays with family and friends. Happy that I get the chance to have some vacation time to see some of family who live out of state too. Thanks!

  75. Today I am hopeful that my hubby will get out of work early or AT LEAST on time. He has been doing SO much OT and I HATE it! LOL Tonight, of all nights, he needs to leave on time and I am hopeful that he will stand up for himself and get it done!

  76. Today I am mad because I got a free product coupon emailed to me only to find out that the store it is good at does NOT accept online freebie coupons EVER. GRRR! I hate stupid coupon policies like this but mostly I hate the dishonest couponers who have created a need for such policies. If people could just be honest and not take advantage, coupon policies like this would never have happened!

  77. It snowed all night, and is still snowing lightly. The roads look pretty bad. It’s the day after Christmas, I don’t have to work and have nothing planned. I have an excess of cookies and yummy holiday food, and I have a stack of movies ready to go. My day is planned. 🙂

  78. I’m hopeful today because I think I’m still getting a few gifts in the mail from family who mailed packages late! It’s nice to have something to look forward to after Christmas is over and done.

  79. What made me happy today was waking up knowing the holiday is finally over. Even though the anticipation is great it is so much greater when christmas is over for another year.

  80. Even though I am way behind due to the holidays I am hopeful I can get my grocery shopping done today. I haven’t even made a list or coupon matched anything yet but I’m hopeful I can do it.

  81. What made me mad today was realizing my boyfriends check won’t be deposited until next wee.k. Makes grocery shopping and paying bills quite difficult. could not believe the bank was already closed on Wednesday when he got his check.

  82. I am HAPPY that today begins a Harry Potter marathon weekend on ABC Family! Even though I own all of the movies, I still love watching them on TV whenever they are on, especially on ABC Family because they have the “extended editions.”

  83. I am HOPEFUL that I am going to actually get to meet the Phelps twins from the Harry Potter movies in a few weeks. Universal Orlando is doing another Harry Potter Expo and I am going! I was able to see them speak at the event last year, but this year I am hoping to attend an autograph session.

  84. I had a lovely Christmas Day AND had a decent night’s sleep so I feel so much better today. The pain is still there but at least I’m rested. Managed a short walk as well – lovely to get out into the fresh air after the hot & steamy kitchen of yesterday!

  85. Dad says he’ll give me a back massage later this evening (it’s 5pm here) so I’ll soak in a hot bath, have a massage then go to bed or lie on the floor to ease all the kinks out of my back. Hopefully I’ll manage to sleep again and feel better in the morning.

  86. Tonight I was looking forward to going to a party in my new LBD – not only am I unfit to party (boo hoo) but my little black number still hasn’t arrived – agh! Never mind, there’ll be other parties and Pantomime season starts next week!

  87. Re: OMG, I am happy if I win this contest.. Wow, prize $35 is fab. & splendid. 2 fingers snap. It is tight, fly & off the chain. Thank you for the awesomeness, the contest, and generosity. Pick me, pick me! Dear Santa: I’ve been nice. My X-Mas wish this year is to win this contest.

  88. Something that made me mad today is that my mom brought the wrong pair of skis for me, so we had to drive 30 minutes all the way back home to get them, and then go to the ski place.

  89. I was hopeful today because I am starting a new job soon and I know God will be there for me to get me through that first week.

  90. I returned an item to AutoZone today and instead of putting the money back on my credit card like they were supposed to, they gave me cash! That made me pretty happy.

  91. I”ve been really bummed lately because my blu ray player was only playing the discs maybe 1/3 of the time. Assumed it was dying and wouldn’t be able to afford a new one. Messed around with it today and now it seems to be playing just fine! Feeling hopeful that it is completely fixed up.

  92. This kind of goes with what made me hopeful. Before I was able to fix the blu ray player I was super angry thinking it wouldn’t play another movie. I am on disability and reading and movies are the only things that keep me sane sometimes.

  93. What made me hopeful today? Hmm…Since Christmas night I have not been very hopeful & sadly, it has crossed over to the weekend. Lots on my mind but it will get better, right?

  94. What made me mad was really nothing. So far, despite not being hopeful, nothing has made me mad. Then again the day is young, I am sure something will happen. LOL

  95. Today I had a lovely time reading a wonderful book I got for Christmas! A charity shop find dating from the 1970s, it’s the Penguin Dorothy Parker. The first part is her 1944 collection of short stories ‘The Portable Parker’ and the second part contains some of her later writings, review and articles. Magical stories from one of my favourite authors, the Queen of urbane wit.

  96. The only thing that’s maddening me today is the ongoing pain in my back but I’m carrying on regardless and that’s probably the wrong thing to do. I should really be lying down and completely resting it but what can you do? I’ll get the chores done and go to bed early though.

  97. My first rehearsal for the annual Pantomime is tomorrow afternoon. Can’t wait! Here’s hoping it’s as good as last year’s when every night was a full house & we were given standing ovations from the first to the last performance.

  98. What made me happy was a neighbor left some recent magazines and chocolate that I happened to be the one to claim it first!!! The early bird got the “worm”!!

  99. What made me mad today? I’m at the library and the people near me are making too much noise, I hate the library says it is ok to talk, b/c people holler so loud over each other might as well be in a bar.

  100. What made me hopeful? I found a couple of good books through the library online system and also B&N, on a subject that I need to know more about, but have been having a hard time finding info.

  101. I’m happy that I don’t have to go anywhere today.
    I’m hopeful that I’ll beat this stupid cold.
    I’m mad that I have a cold and feel yucky.

  102. Today was a pretty happy day. My favorite college football team, Penn State won the New Era Pinstripe Bowl!! It has been awhile since they were in any bowls. I really admire the players who stayed on and played strong without any chances of championships. To overcome that horrible past and continue says a lot! 🙂

  103. I’m hopeful for the economy to continue improving with lower gas and fuel prices. I really appreciate the value of the dollar being stretched.

  104. what made me happy today was that i got plane tickets and hotel stay paid for for my upcoming trip!! so now it feel real like i am actually going and i have never been to vegas before so i am really excited about checking it out and having a good time and getting away from the stress of life for awhile!

  105. something that made me mad today was that i had gotten my brother a car starter for xmas and that is the most expensive gift i have ever got him and xmas morning he went to his dads to do xmas gifts first then came home to do ours and i was so excited for him to open it to see the look on his face and he opened it and went “oh….no….my dad just got me one…sorry” and it broke my heart and i cried and cried cause he always gets me these big extravagant gifts and it was my turn to reciprocate for once and he has to return it now and it made me mad cause it didnt go the way i played it out in my head and it really hurt me.

  106. What made me mad today? Well, I woke up feeling a little under the weather. I’m so tired of this draggy feeling & the nasty weather that seems to feed it.

  107. We moved into a new apartment today, so I feel very blessed to have a safe, comfortable place to live. Thanks and praise be to my Lord.

  108. I feel hopeful today, because I have the love of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in my life. He is the only Hope I need.

  109. That’s, very thankfully, a tough one today because I have been spending the day with my 3 year old granddaughter. 🙂

  110. Happiness, for me, consists of singing and this afternoon (it’s gone 9pm here) I had plenty of opportunity to do just that. Every year I’m a backing singer in the local Pantomime so I sit in the orchestra pit along with one or two others & we harmonise etc. to the vocals on stage. We have the Panto in January whereas most amateur dramatic groups hold theirs in the run-up to Christmas and many parents & grandparents give Panto tickets as Christmas presents. It’s a great way to spend an evening in what would otherwise be a long & dreary January and although it’s hard work I wouldn’t miss it for the world.

  111. I couldn’t sleep again last night because of the pain in my back so about 4am I got up to make a hot drink and to try to doze in an armchair. I went into the kitchen & yeuch! I’d stepped in cat puke in my bare feet! Ugh! Then I had to try to clean the floor & my feet without waking anyone & without hurting my back – after that all thoughts of sleep had well & truly disappeared. That darned cat!

  112. I’m still hoping that my back gets better but my sister knows an acupuncturist who works from home. Hopefully she’ll be able to see me tomorrow (Monday). Just realised that it’s my parents wedding anniversary tomorrow – 58 years! Can’t get my head around that at all!

  113. I’m happy that my home is warm.
    Hopeful that I’ll get rid of this cold.
    Mad that my head hurts and I’m coughing, sneezing and blowing my nose a lot.

  114. I found a great clearance sale today at Michaels. I found some nice goodies for stocking stuffers for the grand children to use next year.

  115. My daughter has been struggling with some mental health issues lately. Today she was very involved with a creative project for a friend and that made me feel hopeful for her state of mind.

  116. Nothing really made me mad today, but I guess I was a little bit annoyed. I had to go to 2 different stores before finding the loaf of bread I needed for unexpected company tonight.

  117. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad at the ridiculous cold of the morning.

  118. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful it’ll be an easy day at work since everyone’s still on holiday mood.

  119. Today I am happy because hubby will be getting off work 30 mins early on New Year’s Eve and is off New Year Day! I am really looking forward to watching Kathy and Anderson on CNN and eating yummy foods on NYE! Then sleeping in and watching the Rose Bowl Parade on NYD! 😀

  120. Today I am hopeful because I was able to lose 1.3lbs between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I can’t believe it! I am hopeful this means that I am back on my road to weight loss for the new year!

  121. Today I am mad because a “friend” of mine who NEVER comments on ANYTHING I post in regard to my photography found it in her heart to comment on my photography photo today in all caps something negative and snarky. WHY? Why do people do this? I will never understand it. It is obvious that I am sharing my art, something I am very passionate about and sensitive about and she KNOWS this, and, yet, it is more important for her to share HER snark than to support me. I could never do that to a friend. I think it is time for me to reassess things. She is toxic to me, of that there is no doubt.

  122. Why am I hopeful today? Well, my oldest nephew is here today, so hopefully I can get him to go get the mail for me, lolol! My knee is acting up & that walk to the mailbox feels long!

  123. Finding some receipts my boyfriend hid for Christmas gifts he bought me made me hopeful today. A few things he bought don’t fit me and I need to return them. Now I am hopeful that I can with the receipts.

  124. yesterday we sat the Sunday paper near a heat register to dry it out since the paper boy didn’t completely wrap it in plastic and it rained. Today I am mad that the coupon insert is still too wet to do anything with.

  125. I took Mum & Dad out today for a lovely lunch to celebrate their 58th wedding anniversary! Dad, of course, found fault with everything & Mum took pleasure in putting him in his place. Ah, well, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

  126. Still no sign of my little black dress from my eBayer – come on guys, Christmas is over, back to business! I wouldn’t mind but they’re not even Christian so no excuses! As long as it arrives by the end of next week for the Panto run I should be ok (we have to wear black in the orchestra pit) because everything’s a bit tight after all the steroids I’ve been on lately.

  127. Hoping & keeping everything crossed that my LBD arrives in time, that I lose a couple of pounds, that no bills arrive this week, that I don’t get ill and that everything goes well at a medical examination I have coming up on Friday (I could go on & on …)!

  128. I’m happy that I’m inside a warm house: windchill readings as low as 15 degrees below zero
    I’m hopeful that this cold will go away.
    Mad that I’m still coughing, sneezing and blowing my nose.

  129. I was not very happy today trying to exchange a jacket at the store. My husband mistakenly go me a children’s jacket but I had trouble finding another to replace it.

  130. Oops!! I didn’t realize mine wasn’t fourteen words!! So I’m reposting with this extra stuff!! I KNEW that I should have added at the end of my sentence: “Yes, I am in love with Bruce Willis!!” :p
    My mom and I watched The Prince with the gorgeous Bruce Willis 😀

  131. I know this is dorky but I’m happy that I cleaned my entire counter and all of the shelves. there was flour everywhere from Christmas baking!

  132. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy to see many happy dogs on the way to work today.

  133. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad at the drunkard neighbor who blasts awful music in the early morning hours.

  134. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful to come up with some good food for NEW Year’s Eve today.

  135. Today I am happy because I was able to surprise my hubby yesterday by decorating for NYE. He loved it! And this morning, when we woke up and he was looking at it again, he hugged me and thanked me for making his morning all sparkly. LOL I love this man so much! 😀

  136. Today I am hopeful that we have not waited too long to get what we need for our NYE night at home. We are going to the grocery store tonight to pick everything up but we are cutting it very close! LOL

  137. Today I am mad because my brand new PJs that I have only worn once ripped! They are BRAND NEW and completely dry rotted! Back they go, that is for sure! I just hope they will work with me on not having to pay return S&H. They normally only give you free returns if you do an exact exchange for the same thing, but I am leary of getting these again for fear it is a bad batch of fabric. UGH!

  138. Today I’m happy because it was a beautiful day – sunny, dry and crispy cold. I managed a long walk even with my achy back. So nice to be able to get out & about!

  139. I could have kicked myself (again) today – I painted my bedroom ceiling a couple of weeks ago & this morning I was going to eat breakfast at my desk. I had the bowl of muesli & berries on the floor and what did I do? I put my foot on the spoon in the bowl which sent a big blob of berry juice & bits all over my lovely ceiling. AGH!

  140. I just hope I can get the stains out of my ceiling without having to repaint it. It doesn’t look as if it will shift so it’s going to have to wait till my back improves before I paint it again. That will teach me: if my desk wasn’t cluttered, I would have had the bowl on the desk and not the floor and anyway, eating at your desk isn’t good for you (or your ceiling!).

  141. What made me made today: My daughter’s car wouldn’t start so she WALKED to work, in SUBZERO weather! SHE DIDN’T EVEN CALL ME! I would have driven her in a heartbeat–that made me angry, panicked, and worried all at the same time!

  142. What made me hopeful today: I received a (late) Christmas card from someone that I haven’t heard from in years, the relationship was strained and I had no way of contacting them. It was very nice to hear from them, and I’m hopeful about our relationship from here forward.

  143. What made me happy today goes along with what made me hopeful. Hearing from a long lost person was like music to my ears and heart.

  144. Today, I’m happy because it has been a very slow day! Yep, slow days are good these days, when things have been too stressful for a month!

  145. I’m happy that the sun is shining today even though it’s -1 degree.
    Hopeful that my cold will eventually go away.
    Mad that my ribs hurt from coughing and my head hurts.

  146. I was happy to spend a few hours with an elderly friend who had several errands to run. Glad that I could help her out.

  147. The temperature is quite cold here today (at least for southern California) and so I’m feeling hopeful that we get a little bit of snow! And am thankful that I can stay home to enjoy it.

  148. My friend wanted me to pick up a form at the DMV for her today. The line was out-the-door, however, and I wasn’t able to help her out.

  149. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy it’s New Year’s Eve and I’m seeing fireworks today.

  150. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad ignorant people are not aware of keeping pets indoors during fireworks.

  151. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful to have a wonderful New Year Eve party with friends today.

  152. Hello! Today I am hopeful for the new year. I’m truly hoping that, in the new year, I’ll stick to my goal of finishing organizing and decorating my apartment. I so want it all pretty and “me”.

  153. It’s not very often that I get mad. I can get frustrated easily sometimes though. lol I was shaking my head today because my step-mother sent me the rudest note but, of course, she wouldn’t think it was rude. Crazy!

  154. Today I am happy because it is NYE and hubby will be home around 5pm so that we can start our fun evening together. He is also off tomorrow, so we will continue to enjoy our time together tomorrow. I am so looking forward to a nice, safe, relaxing evening full of good food and laughter with my fav person in the world! Happy New Year!

  155. Today I am hopeful that I can stay awake until midnight tonight to celebrate NYE with my partner. LOL I have had a total of 6 hours of sleep in the past two days and am so freaking tired! Going to try to take a nap this afternoon. LOL

  156. Today I am mad because a week ago my mother sent us $60 in the mail for Xmas. My hubby put it in his wallet without even asking me and spent it all on I have no idea what! Probably junk food at the office. He gets mad when I ask him where it went and all defensive. I would have liked to have used some of that money toward some of our bills but it is all gone now. $60 in a week! ugh. You just can not give that man cash, ever! grrr

  157. Hap hap happy today as my first big rehearsal was last night & I’ve got a lot of work to do learning all the songs, the musical director’s instructions and the tricky harmonies. I went to sleep singing, was singing in my dreams and still singing when I woke up and I’ll be living, sleeping & dreaming Treasure Island from now until the final night, Jan 17th! Love it!

  158. It’s really maddening that the pain in my back is still there. It’s not as bad as it has been, just bad enough to stop me doing anything. I’ve finally started to take painkillers that are quite strong but one of the side effects is that they make me itch all over! And I mean really itch – not nice.

  159. Still hoping that the pain goes away or at least eases up a bit – I’d love to be able to go for a swim/Jacuzzi after being immobile for so long. And I’ve just realised that today is New Year’s Eve – where has this year gone? It is true, the older you are the quicker the time flies. Anyway here’s wishing each & every Connie fan (and Connie herself of course) a very Happy, Peaceful & Safe New Year or in Irish: Athbhliain faoi mhaise dhaoibh! Pronounced ah vleean fwee vosh-ah geeuv while 2015 is dhá mhíle is a cúig déag or gaw vela is a coo-ig day-ag. Hope you found this useful!

  160. Today, I’m hopeful that we can finish this year on a high note! Hopefully, everyone will get over this flu bug going around here, & have a great New Year!

  161. Happy Well just waking up and G-d allowing me to be happy and have all of my faculties is enough to make me Happy all day long. But what really made me happy was the breakfast in bed my hubby made for me!! He’s so sweet!
    Hopeful That would be the new job that came in at 10am. We own a sandblasting business and a new job was scheduled with us today a 3000 dollar job!! Yahhh that makes me hopeful that it will be a good year!
    Mad I’m mad at my mom, she said she was coming to see me this weekend and told me last night she wasn’t coming.

  162. While doing laundry today I found a big mess my kitty left for me in the basement. The worst kind of mess so use your imagination. Makes me so mad

  163. What made me happy today was being able to visit Adventure Aquarium in Camden NJ courtesy of passes I won through a giveaway. It’s very expensive there but we were able to afford it today. Our whole family went & had a wonderful time!

  164. I felt happy when I was able to find 2 of the products for which I had free coupons. They were expiring today, got them!

  165. My adult daughter has found some school programs that she might consider pursuing. Great news, as she has had a difficult time in life lately, moving forward.

  166. I can’t dsay I actually was mad, but feeling just a bit annoyed that my husband ate all the guacamole from Chipotle! It’s one of my favorite foods.

  167. I’m happy that the sun was shining and the temp got up above 25.
    Hopeful that this cold WILL go away soon.
    Mad that I’m still coughing and sniffling and feeling lousy.

  168. Not much made me mad today, pretty bland day. Microsoft Word formatting probably made me more mad than anything else.

  169. My husband has a week off. I’m hopeful that sometime during that week he will put the light bulbs in in the kitchen in the fixtures that I can’t reach.

  170. Well it’s the first day of the New Year & I’m happy that I’m at that age when going out on NY’s Eve, drinking too much, getting up to the sort of mischief that will make me cringe with embarrassment when I eventually get home to my own bed, is behind me! Instead I stayed in & watched a terrific B&W film from the ‘40s starring the marvellous Alec Guinness.

    1. Kate, I tried so hard to stay awake for midnight. I made it to 11 and just couldn’t stay awake another moment. I’m the opposite, I’ve never gone out on New Years Eve. I would love to out and drink to much and cringe in the morning. Ahhhhh some day.

  171. Talking/writing about age – I am now officially middle-aged – AGH! I know all the words to The Good Ship Lollipop and remember seeing the film! So, that’s it then: middle-aged, fat, single – now I’m getting maudlin; I swear it’s not the gin!

  172. Still hoping my back gets better soon, that my dress arrives, that the high winds lessen (it’s been really stormy here, we even got seagulls in the field & we’re 30 miles inland) and that my medical scope tomorrow goes without a hitch.

  173. 2014 was a year of ups and downs, with too much loss for any person to handle but also lots of wonderful times to celebrate. I am hopeful that 2015 will contain much less loss and much more celebrations!

  174. Today I am mad because my hubby has been in a mood and it is dampening my holiday a bit. He is insisting on taking down the holiday lights from outside, even though I really wanted them to turn on tonight for one more night. I am not helping him take them down though. I refused. If he can’t give me one more night of light, then he can freeze his butt off out there by himself taking them down. Childish? Maybe, but it is a holiday and I am NOT doing what I don’t want to do! LOL

      1. awww! That sucks! You go girl! Get to putting up those lights! LOL We put up TONS of Winter Solstice lights this year but we NORMALLY take them down AFTER the 1st and the 1st is ALWAYS our last night to turn them on. He regretted it last night though. He kept saying, “its so dark and dreary…I should have waited.” LOL BUT then, we looked at the weather report and it is actually good that he took them down yesterday, as it is about to get really nasty for the next week or so, so…yeah…bleh. LOL

  175. Seeing my boyfriend sweep and mop the kitchen floor made me very happy today. He has the day off and is helping me clean a bit.

  176. I am hopeful that the Ohio State Buckeyes win their bowl game tonight. Even though the anaylists seem to think they won’t win I am hopeful

  177. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy to be planning on places I want to visit when I fly home for Chinese new year!

  178. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad at the neighbor who makes awful noise on early holiday morning.

  179. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful to have an easy Friday before the long relaxing last holiday weekend.

  180. What has made me happy today is the fact that I am sitting here with the heater on and it is cozy and warm even though it is cold outside.

  181. Today I am hopeful that the weather will permit hubby and I to go out to dinner tomorrow night to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our very first date. They are calling for a wintery mix but highs in the mid-40s.

  182. Today I am mad because I just can NOT shake this eye irritation/infection/whatever it is. I have been battling this on and off for months. UGH! I do NOT want to have to go to the doctor. bleh. LOL

  183. Why am I mad today? Oh, just normal stuff. I need to go to the grocery, but my brother has to go for me because I’m out of commission, & it gets very frustrating.

  184. I got mad today when the guys came to clean the gutters and informed me that we were missing several shingles, so now we have to get that fixed.

  185. Tonight I’m happy because it was a pretty good day all round really. The internal exam I was dreading went without a hitch & was relatively painless – honestly, when you stop to think about it, men really haven’t a clue about what makes a woman tick! We’re so different, it’s surprising we haven’t become extinct!

  186. This isn’t what made me mad today but what made a friend literally pull her hair out in frustration: there’s a line in the Panto script that she just cannot get right. It’s a crucial line as it gives the cue to the dancers, singers etc. but no matter how hard she tries it just won’t come! It’s got so bad that now she freezes and nothing at all comes out. From her position on the stage she can see me so tomorrow (it’s 11pm here) I’m going to give her cues & hopefully that’ll work.

  187. Like I said above I’m hoping that she’ll finally get the line right. I know that once she gets it right, the problem will just dissolve away as will the nerves beforehand.

  188. What made me happy today was waking up to my fluffy warm dog on my bed! Usually he doesn’t like to crawl into bed with me, but he must have given in to the temptation of my heating blanket!

  189. I was happy today to get a great massage.
    Hopeful that my cold is getting better.
    Mad that I’m still coughing even as I write this.

  190. I am hopeful today because my Mother is being released from the hospital and going to a rehabilitation facility. She should be home in a few weeks.

  191. Today I am happy because the weather held off/changed and we are only having rain. That means that my partner and I WILL be able to go out to eat/have fun for our 25th anniversary of our first date! 😀

      1. Thank you! It was a good one for the most part. We had a really nice dinner out and some “fun” at the casino, but we lost all of our money, so that brought me down big time. LOL But hubby really wanted to go and I had been putting off going for MONTHS, because I don’t like going. I am too stingy and worried about money to find losing it fun. LOL

  192. Today I am hopeful because I won 5 Amazon giftcard from Crowdtap drawings for December. At the least, that is $25! At the most, that is $500! I am hopeful it is more than $25! LOL

  193. Today I am mad because RIGHT after I posted what I was hopeful about, I got all 5 of my giftcards and it totalled only $25. LOL! I am not really mad, just disappointed. But I am also VERY grateful to have won so many this month. Some months I do all of that work and get NOTHING! Now THAT does make me mad. LOL

    1. Angie, entering is a LOT of work. When I have a dry spell it seems to run for a long time!! I need to get on a roll. I’m trying to win an iPad Mini. Of course jewelry too! What’s on your wish list?

      1. Dry spells SUCK! LOL I won something from you yesterday! LOL Thanks for that! My wish list is easy: money. LOL I use my giveaways to supplement my income and the most coveted wins are for gift cards like Amazon or just Visa ones that I can use anywhere to get anything. I also love to win gifts or things that I use every day like my fav brands or organic/natural cleaning products or health products. 😀

  194. Today I’m hopeful I can actually succeed at my New Year’s Resolution of improving my health this year. I need to drop some pounds for my diabetes issues.

  195. 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.

  196. 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.

  197. 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.

  198. 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.

  199. 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.

  200. 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

  201. 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!

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

  203. 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!

  204. 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!

  205. 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.

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

  207. 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

  208. 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.

  209. 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…

  210. 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.

  211. 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!

  212. 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!

  213. 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.

  214. 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!

  215. 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.

  216. 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 🙂

  217. 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!

  218. 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.

  219. 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.

  220. 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.

  221. 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!

  222. 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

  223. 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!

  224. 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!

  225. 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!

  226. 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. 🙁

  227. 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.

  228. 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.

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

  230. 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!

  231. 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!!!!!

  232. 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!

  233. 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!

  234. 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.

  235. 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.

  236. 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!

  237. 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.

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

  239. 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.

  240. 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.

  241. 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!

  242. 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.

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

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

  245. 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 🙁

  246. 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.

  247. 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.

  248. 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!

  249. 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.

  250. 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

  251. 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.

  252. 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.

  253. 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.

  254. 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!

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

  256. 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!

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

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

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

  260. 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.

  261. 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.

  262. 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.

  263. 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.

  264. 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.

  265. 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.

  266. 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.

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

  268. 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

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

  270. 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???

  271. 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!

  272. 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.

  273. 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 🙂

  274. 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.

  275. 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 🙂

  276. 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!!

  277. 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!

  278. 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!

  279. 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.

  280. 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.

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

  282. 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!

  283. 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.

  284. 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.

  285. 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.

  286. 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

  287. 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

  288. 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.

  289. 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

  290. 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!

  291. 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!

  292. 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.

  293. 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!

  294. 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.

  295. 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.

  296. 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.

  297. 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!!

  298. 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.

  299. 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.

  300. 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!

  301. 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.

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

  303. 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.

  304. 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!

  305. 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.

  306. 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.

  307. 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.

  308. 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!

  309. 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.

  310. 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!

  311. 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?!

  312. 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!

  313. 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.

  314. 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!

  315. 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!

  316. 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!).

  317. 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.

  318. 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.

  319. 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..

  320. 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.
