  1. Hmm what made me mad today? Probably the fact that while I had the correct information needed to rectify a situation I was still ignored. That made me pretty mad.

  2. Just the sun simply rising this morning to show I made it through another day is enough to keep me hopeful that it’ll be a good one!

  3. The littlest things make me the happiest! Today it was just the fact that my friend picked me up a coffee drink that she knows I enjoy quite alot. Nice little surprise!

  4. I am happy today because I have such wonderful, supportive friends. I am straight out of bed, emailing with my friends about some stuff we talked about last night.

  5. I was happy on Monday because I finished a big project at work ahead of schedule, so I can enjoy the rest of the week with family & friends for the most part.

  6. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful this cold will go away before the weekend.

  7. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m angry at the cold I’m having, sneezing all the time.

  8. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy I found the song I’m not the only one – Sam Smith. Awesome song!

  9. I am hopeful that my family and I will have a lovely Thanksgiving. I have to start baking tomorrow and doing some prep work.

  10. I am hopeful today because I had five separate visits over the weekend. Sometimes there will be no visits for the whole week. I even ran out of chairs. Can’t wait for Christmas is this is what pre-Christmas is like.

  11. What made me mad today was that another shift at work did not finish tasks assigned to them and it fell to me.

  12. the fact that there are many contests giving away GC’s during christmas season makes me happy because my chances are bigger, good luck everyone by the way

  13. I got mad today when I learned that a family member was talking smack about someone else behind their back…..and none of it was true!

  14. What made me hopeful today? Even though the weather is still way to cold, the temps are supposed to get back to normal soon!

  15. What made me hopeful today…my mother in law called and she will be joining our family for thanksgiving dinner this week.

  16. What made me mad today? A dozen little irritants, like having trouble getting in touch with a doctor, made me pretty irritable!

  17. In our house there are a few traditions around Christmas & today I crossed one of them off the list: washing all the windows inside & out. Thankfully it was dry but damp out so was able to them & washed the cars as well! My knee is aching already, but it made Mum happy and if she-who-must-be-obeyed is happy then so am I!

  18. Today I am mad because I got an email from POM with a link to a 50 cent coupon. I clicked the link and it made me download a printer program. I did this, even though I normally don’t do things like this, and it said it was validating the coupon. It then said the coupon had already been printed when it HAD NOT! SO IRRITATED!!

  19. Today I am happy because yesterday and today were/are warm enough that we were/are able to have our windows open. SO nice to get some fresh air! Going to enjoy it while it lasts!

  20. I am hopeful today that I find some great activities for my grandkids today to make them happy as they are off school all week

  21. Baking peanut butter cookies today and completely screwing them up made me mad today, lol! 🙁 Used too much butter in them, ugh!

  22. today, a bunch of people on one of my moms groups started verbally attacking a woman who just wanted advice. she was clearly a new mom, and i hope she finds some support, but it made me angry.

  23. my boyfriend just texted me that he is on his way home. this makes me ecstatic, cant wait for him to see how well i cleaned up

  24. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I hope the weather is not on the minus side this week.

  25. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m angry one of the neighbors is always drunk at the weekends and blasts music all night.

  26. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy my work laptop has been fixed.

  27. Let’s see, my husband not having any time off for the week made me mad today. I’m a teacher, so I’m home all week long. It would be nice to spend some of it with him.

  28. Some of my MS symptoms are coming and going today. It makes me hopeful that they will eventually go away for good. Keeping my fingers crossed on that one.

  29. Eating pizza made me happy today. Yep, gooey cheese pizza. I never indulge in greasy food, so it was quite the treat.

  30. I feel hopeful today because we had a couple interested in our house that we have for sale. Once it’s sold we can move to were my husband is living for his job.

  31. I got mad today when I drove my boyfriend and daughter to church and not a half hour later he calls and says he’s done. I hate when I just drop him off and have to turn around and go get him again! GRRrrrrrr.

  32. Going over my finances for Christmas, I think I can swing everything and eat too! That makes me hopeful.

  33. Happy to have a warm house with the wind blowing outside.
    Hopeful that the warm water pool will stay warm this weekend.
    Sad to hear that the pool will close early on Wed and be closed til next Monday.

  34. Maddening that my knee is so sore after only doing a bit of hard physical work this morning. And I’ve got more physio exercises to do every day before I see my consultant again in early December. Constant pain is so tiring, but hey, things could be so much worse: I have a roof over my head, food in my belly & a family that cares about me; doesn’t get better than that, does it?

  35. Tommy the cat continues to improve, thank goodness, so hopefully he’s over the worst. No more processed cat food for him, only raw meat/fish. Still it actually works out cheaper and my very first job as a newly-qualified food technologist way back in ’81 was in a pet food factory so I know the all tricks of the trade pulled in order to maximise profit.

  36. Today I was happy because the sun actually shone for an hour or two! I was able to get a bit more tidying up of the garden done. Love getting out & about in the fresh air.

  37. What really made me mad today is that with my leg I am unable to do the things I need to get done for the rest of the winter weather season. I get very frustrated by my limitations. Guess I nee to focus on the things I can do!

  38. What made me hopeful today was we can get the rest of the stuff in the yard put away for the year. It had snowed fast and hard and everything was covered up so we couldn’t not only find it but it was frozen to the ground. Right now it is thawing and we are getting things done.

  39. Happy today to spend time with just my husband myself today. Very quiet but quite serene. We don’t spend enough time together just the two of us and we need to do more of it. Kinda takes you back to the good old days when you were younger and it was just the 2 of you again.

  40. What made me hopeful today? Well, right now I’m hopeful it will stop raining soon! Of course, it’s just going to get cold again. Lol, Winter isn’t here yet & I want it to go away.

  41. What made me mad today? How about a niece & nephew who can’t seem to be civil to each other, and I get to spend the day babysitting them?

  42. I am hoping that I can get the refrigerator cleaned out enough to get the turkey out of the freezer to thaw! It is a gift from my grandson’s work, and definitely larger than we usually get!

  43. Had a good laugh, first with my grandson and then with my daughter, about the fact that he came home yesterday, laid down on my bed while talking with me, and promptly fell asleep. His mother managed to get him ambulatory enough to go to his room (6’4″–not easy to carry anymore!), but this morning he looked at me and asked, “How did I get to my bed?”

  44. Here’s what made me mad today. My youngest daughter is a dancer and some of the parents at our studio push their kids so hard…I saw several little girls crying today.

  45. What made me hopeful today—I saw my youngest sons playing together very peacefully, and it makes me very hopeful for the future.

  46. I was hopeful today after speaking to a clerk in a retail store. She was telling me about having to work Thanksgiving, but she had the best attitude about it. I don’t envy retail workers having to work on holidays, but this clerk’s attitude made me see that there are some people who can make you look at something in a different way than you originally thought about it.

  47. I was mad today at myself for not reording my prescription refills. So tonight I am going without one of my regular meds.

  48. I was happy today because I finally got to eat dinner at Olive Garden. I’ve been wanting to go there for the longest time. I haven’t been there in some time, and a friend suggested it. I almost jumped for joy. Great meal/great friend.

  49. What made me mad today was that my son & daughter in law moved out with their little girl and I cried like a baby. I want them to live their own life, don’t get me wrong. This empty nest syndrome is crap!

  50. Today I was hopefulll that I might just get some of my sewing projects done and have the Christmas presents done this year on time.

  51. What made me happy today was that it was lousy weather and I din’t have to go anywhere. So I crawled into the recliner an watched Hallmark Christmas movies all day long. Love them.

  52. I have been feeling pretty crummy lately. Today was the first day I have felt “mostly” normal. I am hopeful that my health continues to improve.

  53. Today a huge chunk of snow slid off my roof and crashed into my Satellite dish, breaking it. So mad. My fault completely, but now no cable for a week.

  54. Today I canned some bone broth. It all turned out amazing. We ended up with 5 pints of broth, and another 5 of soup. I love canning soup. Makes me very happy to have such wonderful food for the winter.

  55. I got mad today when my mom and grandma got into an argument and didn’t speak to each other the rest of the day.

  56. I’m happy to have a day at home with no places I have to go.
    I’m hopeful I’ll get a lot done today
    I’m a bit peeved the this giveaway disappeared from your side bar since it doesn’t end for 2 more days??? But I have my way of finding it in my history – so here I am…..

  57. What made me mad today? That’s a tough one. I’m not sure I got mad today. Of course the day isn’t over yet!

  58. Saturday has made me happy! A snowy day spent indoors making cookies & apple crisp with my hubby. A daughter who slept in until 8! It’s starting to feel like Christmas just might be on its way.

  59. Not really mad at anything at all today (keep thinking about those penguins, Kate). The weather’s a bit better, ‘things to do’ are becoming ‘things I’ve done’, the family is in relatively good health and the pain in my knee is a bit better as well so might get a decent sleep in my clean sheets tonight!

  60. Tommy the cat is home & still not himself but I managed to get his tablets down him with no stress to him & no scratches to me. His bloods all came back clear except for a slight rise in white blood cells so he’s obviously fighting something and he’s a bit anaemic so he’s had a B12 jab. Hopefully he’s finally on the mend.

  61. Happy today because NO RAIN & this is Ireland folks! Got to wash all the bedding so clean sheets tonight for all in the house. Love the feeling of clean feet in clean sheets – mmm!

  62. Today I am hopeful because I just got off the phone with my mother discussing her upcoming Thanksgiving Day visit and she is in a good mood and is excited. One less thing to worry about! LOL

  63. What makes me hopeful today? Well, I’m hopeful the cold will go away & give us a few nice Fall days before Winter gets here!

  64. What made me mad today? Hmm, not too much to get mad about today. Maybe the cold weather is pretty aggravating.

  65. I went to Walmart to get a prescription filled. It was SO busy. There was at least 6 people in each line. Everyone was coughing and sneezing. We left and I was nearly run over by a driver that was in such a hurry. I was very mad.

  66. Today I was happy because I was able to get into my Dr Appt. early, so I could get home earlier and prepare dinner for the family 🙂

  67. I was happy today to learn that I won the Puppy Love Spray.
    Hopeful that tomorrow will be warmer than today.
    A bit miffed that Ace Hardware didn’t have the light bulb I needed.

  68. I’m happy that it’s Friday! I’m also happy that I get to go to two Thanksgiving dinners this weekend!

  69. Happy? Today I am happy because it is Friday, and who doesn’t love Friday. And Christmas is on it’s way.. which means soon I will be allowed to pull out the Christmas music. Joy to the world! Happy is me 🙂

  70. Mad at lots of things beyond my control: potholes in the roads, stupid drivers, politicians, red tape & bureaucracy, the haves and the have nots and the widening gap between those in control and the rest of us, and rain! I mean, what’s the point of getting mad at the rain? It’s got to rain for the plants to grow, for us to live and for frogs to make babies!

  71. Hoping that Tommy the cat gets to come home today. There was some misunderstanding at the vets & I drove all the way there to collect him only to be told that they were going to keep him until later. No choice only to drive all the way back home again. Hopefully that’s not a bad sign …

  72. Happy today because well, I’m grateful for what I have. Maybe it’s the time of year, but I seem to be in a very reflective mood lately. I’m not at all religious but I really feel as one with the seasons, even more so the older I get. This time of year, especially here in the country, with the harvest home, and the plants and animals getting ready for the winter, the darker evenings, the colder weather, all help me to realise just how lucky I am. Yes, there are bad things happening in the world and in everyday life, but, just as with the advent of winter there comes the hope of Spring and new life, brighter days and flowers.

  73. Today I am mad because a friend of mine keeps leaving snarky comments on my photography and poetry shares. I am very sensitive to negative comments on my creative endeavors. It hurts my feelings. I don’t understand why every comment this person leaves has to be making fun of what I am posting rather than celebrating or offering useful critiques. I am open to helpful comments, even if negative, but negative and poking fun just for fun is cruel in my mind.

  74. Today I am hopeful because I am getting excited again for Thanksgiving with my parents. I was dreading it and regretting inviting them but now, as the day gets closer and things i’ve been stressing about are falling into place, I am getting excited!

  75. I am not mad or angry today. I am so thankful for all that I have. Have a wonderful day today and God Bless

  76. Good morning everyone. What a beautiful day I woke up to. I am happy to be alive and well. I hope everyone enjoys their day.

  77. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful to be having dinner at the most famous restaurant in town tomorrow. I hope the food is satisfying.

  78. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m angry at the post office’s slow service. So many customers are served with only 2 postmen.

  79. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy I’m off today from my second workplace to enjoy Friday night with my man.

  80. what made me hopeful is the weather channel.saying its going to get up into the 40’s this weekend.maybe i’ll be able to fix my pond.

  81. what made me mad is the weather,its too frigging cold here with temps in the teens and single digits.which in turn froze over our koi pond and the pond needs to have an opening to release the gases trapped by the ice and to give the fish oxygen.the pond heater got frozen into the pond because of the wind blowing water from the fountain onto it and freezing.now i have to use a heat gun to put holes in the pond and every night because it gets really cold the holes close up and i have to do it all over again.

  82. what made me mad today was finding out a dear friend was abused by her own son…she had to file a police report which was so very difficult.

  83. I was hopeful today because a family member actually thanked me for handling a problem for him today. It’s always nice to be thanked even if it’s for something small.

  84. I was happy today because one of my favorite shows “Parenthood” came on tv. I love that show and am going to miss it.

  85. I was kind of mad at myself for not getting out and going to the grocery store. I hate to wait til the weekend, so I hope I can get there tomorrow.

  86. This giveaway made me hopeful today because I was just imagining what I could buy with that Amazon card. My daughter would just love some new markers or maybe I could get a new book. Hope is such an important thing because without it, our spirit gets sick.

  87. The only thing that I can think of that made mad today is a splitting headache that won’t go away. My head is pounding and I can even think so I had to take a pill that has caffeine which means that I won’t be able to sleep tonight. Boo!

  88. Today I was able to sit around with my sister for a little while sharing favorite youtube videos. I also had someone ask my daughter to use her artistic talent to paint the set in a play, so that is very exciting to have her talent recognized by others. 🙂

  89. what made me happy today was that i got to use the target gift card i won on an instant win game. i was able to buy a couple of turkeys for the holidays.now my family will get to have a great meal for the holidays

  90. Something that made me hopeful today was hearing from my very dear close friend and he’s been battling cancer privately and his world literally is falling apart. I got to visit and he’s making tremendous progress looks amazing compared to the past few weeks and got good lab results that chemo is working and his levels are going down. That is the best blessing and I am so happy to have that relief I have been so worried about him lately.

  91. Today something that made me happy was, for the second consecutive day I was off work. It sucked because I had to go to traffic court and a doctors appointment which took from 7-10 then 1-3 but that’s ok it needed to be done.

  92. Happy to have had a great Winter Green outreach program today at the Roxborough Library and I got a new library card sticker from there.
    Hopeful that tomorrow will be another lovely day like today.
    No mad today.

  93. I am not really angry or mad just disappointed. My son and his family moved out without giving us any notice and I feel kinda hurt. No issues or anything like that but they moved back to where they were when all of their troubles started. I am very concerned and trying to stay positive. They need to live their own lives and I am happy for them. I am just really concerned because right now I am not seeing any positives. Keep me in your prayers friends.

  94. Today I am hopeful that my leg is going to finally heal. Just hope there is no permeant damage done to the knee area after the blood clots are deminished. One bright side of the story is that I must have pretty strong bones after all of this.

  95. What made me happy today was to finally be back on your website and catch up on all that has been going one on here. I have really missed being on here. Glad to hear how things are going with you and your lovely family.

  96. I sat down to watch one of my favorite shows today. I pressed play and…nothing. Apparently the satellite went out, because of the weather. Now I don’t get to see my show. So mad. I know a TV show is not really a big deal, but I was so excited and had finally found 30 minutes to myself to sit and watch. A total let down.

  97. Today, my husband was offered a new job. This would be great for us. I am very hopeful that the job works out and that he loves it. I am very excited for him.

  98. Today my brother called. We have not talked in many months, it was a really nice converstation. It made me very happy.

  99. What made me MAD today ? I woke up with a sore throat .. and my daughter was awake half the night with a plugged up nose. It’s her first cold .. and I hate being sick 🙁

  100. Hmm, what made me happy today? Well I finally posted a blog entry yesterday & today I actually had comments on my blog! 😀

  101. Driving to the vets & back (2 hours round trip as we live in the middle of nowhere!) in really bad fog and couldn’t believe the number of drivers not using their lights. Sheer stupidity & madness personified. What is wrong with these people?

  102. Hopeful that Tommy the cat is ok – he’s being kept in overnight again at the vets for bloods etc. The house is so empty without him…

  103. Happy today because I realised that, as a family, we’re not half bad at all. You read about families in trouble because of crime, drugs etc. & thankfully we were brought up to know right from wrong, to tell the truth, to value education and to ask for help if we need it.

  104. What made me mad is the TMJ is so painful. I have had this for some time and it is not going away. I have spent much money on many doctors and different dentist and I have been told it is not dental.

  105. Today I am mad because I was filling out a report on Crowdtap for a Sample/Share I participated in and there was NOWHERE in the reporting process for me to share my thoughts. I am afraid that they will base my report on things beyond my control and not approve it. I am so irritated. There should ALWAYS be a place for us to share our thoughts and explain our actions or inactions!

  106. Today I am hopeful because I got a tentative answer to when my parents are coming for Thanksgiving. My stepdad is HORRIBLE at being pinned down. LOL They are coming on Thanksgiving and leaving the next day, Friday. Now I just need to get a TIME of arrival! Hopefully I will get that soon! LOL

  107. Today I am happy because I got a surprise package in the mail from my friend in England. It had two books in it, a pen, some stickers, and some earrings. I have never even met this person IRL and she sends me the most thoughtful gifts all the time! I need to figure out what to send her next! 😀 It’s like a penpal of this century! LOL

  108. I am not mad at anything today. I know the good Lord is with me and helping me through anything I might encounter this day

  109. I woke up happy again today for another wonderful day to serve my Lord and Savior. I am thankful for the good health that he has given us all

  110. Today, I get to spend some time with my youngest nephew. That makes me happy even if I am being forced to watch Transformers!

  111. Well, since I had to get up before daylight today, I’m hopeful I’ll have plenty of time to get things done! And go to bed early, lol.

  112. Oh, boy, getting up at 6:30 am made me mad today, lol. Geeze, I hate getting up before daylight. I’m usually a night owl.

  113. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful to know we’ll have a fun weekend gathering with friends.

  114. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad at the misty morning. I could not see a thing while driving.

  115. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy what the Christmas present for my man arrived discreetly and safe.

  116. My daughter wrote all up and down her arms and I have told her many times not to do that, that made me mad or more like disappointed in her.

  117. I live close to Buffalo and they got slammed with snow it started to Snow here earlier and when it stopped it made me feel hopeful we won’t get a lot of snow tonight.

  118. I was happy to have my swim class after Monday’s pool closing.
    I am hopeful that tomorrow will again be warmer than today.
    No mad today.

  119. It is 4:05pm, and that makes me hopeful that my hubby will be off on time. It has been a long day with the kids, and I am ready for some help!

  120. Today I am mad because my passive aggressive neighbor has struck again. This time, he shoveled his sidewalk up to the property line and left a huge pile of snow right on the property line of the sidewalk. WHY?! Not only is it rude and childish and obviously a dumb attempt to get us to shovel our sidewalk, but it makes it difficult on ALL of the other neighbors they are not mad at who like to use the sidewalk to walk their dogs! This is really getting out of hand. 🙁

  121. Today I am hopeful because hubby and I got the new flooring for the entryway at Lowe’s today. Everything in pairs crossed it will be installed by Thanksgiving! 😀

  122. Today I am happy because the Quorn Turk’y Roasts that I have been having SUCH a HARD time locating for my Thanksgiving meal are tucked snugly into my freezer! Thanksgiving is saved! LOL

  123. Mad at myself again. When will I ever learn that going out with damp hair is just asking for trouble? I spent the night coughing & wheezing & feel ragged today. Honestly, what’s wrong with me, you’d think at my age and with my health problems, I’d be more careful. So tired & sore from coughing. OUCH! That was me trying to kick some sense into myself!

  124. Hoping & crossing everything that Tommy’s problems aren’t too bad. Still worrying about him keeps my mind off worrying about that shadow on my lung.

  125. My Dad won €50 today on the Irish lottery, that means I can take the cat back to the vet tomorrow! You know how you just know when something’s not right? Well, call me an old softie but Tommy’s not well & Dad’s win means I can take him back to the vet sooner rather than later.

  126. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful that my parents could travel here to spend the summer vacation with me next year.

  127. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad at the school’s slow paperwork.

  128. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy my MICHAEL KORS Anya Leather Ankle Boot arrived on time for Christmas parties!

  129. I got mad today when I was trying to find my way onto the interstate exit in an unfamiliar area. The street signs were arranged in a confusing manner, and when I realized that I was turning onto the wrong street (which was not a street – it actually had a dropoff!) I maneuvered back onto the road. Unfortunately, I didn’t notice someone else making a U-Turn. I glanced to the side and saw the movie image of two headlights heading straight toward us. Luckily, they saw us and stopped – but, it made me so angry that this town doesn’t have their signs well marked. Not to mention the drop off which I have had a problem with before. This is the 2nd time I have almost had an accident at this particular exit which tells me that there is a problem!

  130. I was hopeful today as I watched my 13yo interact with the sales person at a shop today. He pleased her greatly when he commented that she looked fine and if anyone else said differently, she had the right to hit them. He charmed them – and it was wonderful seeing the young man he is growing into.

  131. Today was a great day! I got to spend the whole day with my 13yo son. I treated him to All You Can Eat Ribs, and he was one happy boy. Then we went shopping for some special costumes he needed for an upcoming role – it was so much fun spending time just he and I.

  132. I am happy right now eating a rotisserie chicken from Costco.
    I’m hopeful that my infusion today will help my knees.
    No mad

  133. Hmm, can weather actually make someone mad? Yep, if you have arthritis & it just shouldn’t be this cold yet!

  134. What made me hopeful today? Well, they say by the end of the week it will be back up in the 60s! That beats the teens we are freezing in right now!

  135. Not mad at all today, not even irritated by the usual little things. I have had to learn to bite my tongue & take everything in my stride, and if that fails I think of penguins! I mean how can you be unhappy or cross with a picture of waddling penguins in your head?

  136. Today I had to go for another chest xray to find out if what they found last time is still there. I’m asthmatic & have had pleurisy, bronchitis, pneumonia, you name it so hopefully it’s just scarring on my lung and not something more serious, time will tell but the waiting around is hard.

  137. Happy today because it didn’t rain – woohoo! Got loads of laundry washed & dry in the fresh air so we have no excuses for looking like slobs anymore.

  138. I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to go back to work soon. After breaking my arm, I’ve had to take time off from work. With the holidays coming, I need to get back to work.

  139. I broke my arm near the shoulder about 3 weeks ago (while I was on vacation – bummer, I know). I’m thankful that it’s healing. It’s been very painful. I’ve had to sleep in a recliner so I don’t roll on it. I go back in another week for x-rays and then therapy. I’ve been very down about it. But it is getting better and I’m thankful for that.

  140. I am not mad at anything today. I am so thankful to have another day to serve my good Lord and Savior.

  141. I am so happy today that my daughter in law is starting to feel better from her infection and our schnauzer is healing from his surgery.

  142. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful to have faith in the future where I could bring my mom here to live with us.

  143. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad some punk messed up with the building’s trash bin.

  144. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy my dad finally settled down in his favorite city.

  145. Today I made my next batch of applesauce from scratch, it makes me overjoyed that my toddlers love applesauce! More so some days than cookies! I hope this is a life long trend!

  146. I was happy to see some friends today.
    Hopeful that tomorrow will be warmer.
    Mad that the pool heater broke so I couldn’t do my swim class.

  147. I am happy today because I had a great weekend. My friends threw me a housewarming party and we had a lot of fun. I also got some great gifts and great gift cards!

  148. I am not angry about anything. Anger or being mad just drains you and makes it hard to function or think straight. I try every day to look at the positive side of things

  149. waking up this morning a little earler to get things done since I didn’t have a headache for a change made me happy today

  150. Eek! It snowed last night. So, no school today, & that means my niece & 2 nephews are here today. Let’s just say I’m hopeful there will be school tomorrow!

  151. This morning I was up really early and saw the sunrise – stunning with the bare trees silhouetted against the sky, then the birdsong started. And there was Jim, the one-legged crow that we’ve been feeding for 2 years, sitting, waiting for his handful of peanuts & bacon fat. How could you not be happy?

  152. Maddened by the amount of food thrown away by supermarkets. I understand that goods have to be removed from the shelves if they’re near their ‘best before’ but, honestly it seems immoral to me when so many people are homeless and hungry. I know some chains donate to soup kitchens and charitable organisations but surely with the huge profits made they should be doing more. Or is it just me?

  153. Today I’m hopeful because my first physio session went well. I’ve got exercises to do every day & go again on Friday then once a week till the New Year. It’s all towards building up my legs before major reconstructive surgery on my dislocated knee.

  154. Today I am hopeful because all of the mattress odor problems we have been having seem to actually NOT be the mattress. We are pretty sure that something has died either in our wall or in the crawlspace. I am hoping we can figure this out and it will either resolve itself over time or we will be able to resolve it.

  155. Today I am mad because I had to completely reset my iPad because of the new update. For some reason, all but 317mb of memory was used up on my iPad, even though I hardly had ANYTHING on it. I never did figure out what was using all of my memory. After resetting it, I have almost 10gb of memory, even after putting my apps back on it and reconnecting my email. While I love my iPad, I hate that you don’t have access to the ability to change your memory settings and see ALL of the usage. There is too much hidden from the owner.

  156. Today I am happy because when I woke up and looked outside, it looked like a winter wonderland! We got about 4 inches of snow overnight. While it is too early for this stuff, I can’t help but smile at the beauty!

  157. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful it’s gonna be a not-so-cold winter here in the north pole.

  158. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m angry when people trying to push responsibility around.

  159. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy I had beef teriyaki today for lunch.

  160. Sorry my previous post is too short, my daughter makes me happy! Buying new make-up makes me happy! Mainly spending time with my daughter!

  161. Ok, sometimes the ads on kids’ cartoon shows make me a little mad. All they do is sell, sell, sell! Geeze, give us a break.

  162. But I am happy to spend time with my youngest nephew! We watch cartoons & make a list of all the toys he wants from the commercials!

  163. Well, I got to spend time with my youngest nephew watching SpongeBob, lol. I’m hopeful that soon we’ll watch something else!

  164. I talked with our 6 year old grandson today. He always makes me smile and has such wonderful things to share with me. Our 15 month old grandson is sick so he didn’t have too much to say. Love these 2 little boys!

  165. Today I am hopeful because my friend gave me a bag full of unopened geodes. I am hopeful that when my husband and I crack them open, they will be full of gorgeous crystals!

  166. Today I am mad because the place that I ordered the Quorn Turk’y Roast from on Friday, as of this morning, still had not called me or emailed me with a pick up time. I finally called them this morning (Sunday) and they acted like they had not even seen my online order. They put me on hold and then came back and said what I ordered was out of stock but that it MAY be coming in on Tuesday and they would call to let me know. If it doesn’t come in on Tuesday, they will order it for me. I have a very bad feeling about this.

  167. I’m happy that the sun is shining today.
    I’m hopeful that it will be warmer this week.
    I’m a bit sad that my hip is bothering me today.

  168. What made me mad today? HA! Well its a small trivial thing but arguing with my preteen to do his chores made me mad for a minute. 🙂

  169. I have been sick with a kidney infection. Finally broke down yesterday and went to ER and they did IV antibiotics and lots of meds … I am hopeful that I will feel a lot better very soon. 🙂

  170. Mad at myself again today. All this clearing out should have been done years ago & I’ve been hanging on to things as if my life depended on it. Every house move has included boxes & boxes of ‘stuff’ that I’ve kept ‘just in case’. I come from a long line of hoarders (you should see the shed!). And you know what, I feel better for letting go. I’ve still got the memories and no-one can take them away.

  171. Hopefully, I’ll apply the same gusto to the wardrobes tomorrow. I think it’s time that I faced the fact that hanging onto clothes that once fitted me is just plain daft. I’m never likely to fit into that ’80s gold lace ballgown ever again and it seems a shame to cut it into something I would wear. But hey, I got 30+ years out of it and others as well so charity shops here I come! And all those high heels that I really can’t wear any more: come on Kate, you can do it!

  172. Spent the day going through all of my books & deciding which ones to keep & which to give away. Heading for the charity shops with about 50 books, which will give you some idea of how many I’ve got left! A wall-full! I’ve done the same with my bling and have a big bag of pretty shiny things to give away as well. Great feeling.

  173. My daughter spent the night at her friends house for the first time. She went with her to church today to see her get baptized. That makes me hopeful.

  174. I’m not sure I’ve been up long enough to be mad about anything, lol. I’m a pretty laid back person. Although I’m not thrilled that my husband is boiling a deer head on our stove. Gross.

  175. What made me happy today is that I got a fantastic night’s sleep! My daughter had her first sleep over at our friend’s house so it was so quiet here!

  176. One thing that made me happy today was being able to have a morning coffee with a girlfriend I haven’t seen for a few weeks. 🙂

  177. I woke up happy to have another great day to serve the Lord. The weather is cool and it is feeling like the holidays are just around the corner.

  178. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad at the rice cooker, its bottom has peeled of after a couple of times of usage.

  179. What made me mad is a hard one. Seem that the only person I am ever mad at is me. Today I let the fire in the fireplace to go out. Then a big gust of wind came down the chimney and blew ash all over my living room. I was so mad at myself.

  180. Today I made squash soup. I served it for dinner for my family. Everyone loved it. It made me happy, they were so pleased with it 🙂

  181. I’m happy to be home after 3 weeks of house sitting.
    I’m hopeful that the sun will shine tomorrow instead of all this snow.
    I’m mad at drivers who drive in snowstorms WITHOUT their headlights on.

  182. Today I’m hopeful I’ll get my Christmas shopping done with no issues or returns, lol. That would be so great!

  183. What made me happy today? Well, the basketball shoes I ordered for my nephew (for Christmas) arrived & they look great! Right size, no issues, yay!

  184. Really angry for a change. One local man keeps his horses on common ground by the river and everytime it floods, the rescue services have to save these animals (twenty or more, including foals). He gets taken to court each time, pays the (pitiful) fine & waits till the next flood. Not only does it cost the taxpayer hundreds of thousands, he does not deserve to own these beautiful animals.

  185. Hoping against hope that the flood waters recede so that people (and animals) can get some normality back to their lives. Some people have lost everything, but luckily no lives lost.

  186. So happy to be safe and warm and dry. Many families have lost everything in the local floods, heartbreaking scenes on the ‘net & telly. And still more rain forecast.

  187. Today I am mad because of another bad customer service experience. I placed an online order with a local natural grocery store yesterday and was told that they would let me know that day if the order came thru and if they had what I wanted in stock or not. I have not heard a thing. I emailed them, as their site says to do, and still nothing. I am so frustrated. I am just sure I will end up having to call them tomorrow to see if my order is ready for pick up. grrrr!

  188. Today I am hopeful because I think that I found a place to get my Quorn Turk’y Roasts from locally. I placed a pick-up order online yesterday and am hoping to pick them up at the store tomorrow when I am out running errands.

  189. Today I am happy because my husband is finally getting the yard ready for winter. He is mulching the leaves in the front yard and took the rotten, Halloween pumpkins to the compost pile. 😀

  190. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad that simple household stuff is so expensive here where I live.

  191. I won a package with some sauces awhile back. It came today via UPS and one of the bottles was broken, even though it was wrapped very well. What did they do? Throw it down and stomp on it????

  192. It made me happy today to see our little kitten 10 weeks old play and frolic about like a little flying squirrel, she’s so cute!

  193. I was hopeful today when the UPS guy dropped off a package and he was friendly, professional, and he looked like he was enjoying his job. I’ve seen all those videos where delivery guys are tossing packages and being unprofessional, but the UPS guys who usually work this neighborhood always seem friendly and I like that.

  194. What made me mad today? NOTHING. I don’t think I ever got mad at anything, big or small today. It is Friday so maybe that had something to do with it.

  195. I was happy today because I didn’t receive 5 phone calls from the same telephone number. They never leave a message, and the few times I answered, they said nothing. I looked up the number and others have said it’s a telemarketer. They didn’t call today!

  196. Today I went to the store to buy a heated dog bowl. The price was twice that of Amazon. I unfortunately needed it today, so I had to pay the money. It made me mad that I had not planned better.

  197. Today, I was able to pay off some bills I have been dreading. I am hopeful that I can stay on top of things now 🙂

  198. Today, I was able to pay off some bills I have been dreading. I am hopeful that I can stay on top of things now 🙂

  199. Today our neighbor came over and brought some pickled carrots that he had canned. I love our neighborhood. Such caring, kind, neighborly people. It makes me Happy.

  200. What made me happy today? Well, I really don’t have anything I have to get done today, so that kind of makes me happy!

  201. Well, I got some Christmas shopping done this morning. So, I’m hopeful that I will actually get it done before Christmas gets here!

  202. Oh, boy, just having to get up this morning made me mad, lol! It’s going to be one of those days! I just feel a little ‘yucky’ today.

  203. While I’m not exactly mad, I am angry at drivers who don’t slow in the storms we’ve been having. It’s so easy to aquaplane on the flooded roads. So stupid to risk everything just for the sake of being a few minutes late. Can’t understand the mentality of some people.

  204. I’m hoping that the rain stops soon. We’re not directly affected but the neighbouring town is badly flooded & they’ve switched the power off just in case. The river rose 2 feet over night & it’s tidal as well so got a lot worse at high tide. It’s still pouring down & an amber alert for tonight has been issued.

  205. Happiness is seeing the weight of worry lifted off Dad’s shoulders. His tumour has really shrunk so he should be around for a while longer (he’s 81).

  206. I am not mad about anything today. I am trying to live knowing that whatever comes my way, God is with me.

  207. I woke up happy today because the weather is a little cooler. The family is all healthy and things are good. God is so good.

  208. Today I am mad because even after cleaning my mattress and treating it with enzyme cleanser, it is still stinking. It is over 7 years old and I know I need a new one but I don’t have the money to get one yet. I am hoping to use my tax return to get a new one in February but need this one to last until then. It smells so badly and I am at a loss as to what to do to make it not stink. UGH!!!!

    1. Hi Angie,
      Hope you don’t think I’m being nosy but have you tried baking soda? One of our cats had her kittens on my bed & I didn’t think of protecting the mattress. I’m allergic to lots of detergents so try to stick with natural products when I can. Just sprinkle the powder & leave about 6 – 10 hours then vacuum off. Also you can make a paste by just adding a bit of water for stubborn stains etc. Don’t rub, just let it dry & vacuum. Good luck!

  209. Today I am hopeful because my husband decided to go back on his low dose of prozac. He went off of it several months ago and has been really cranky. He saw the light and is on the way to getting back to being happier.

  210. Today I am happy because my order from Amazon is FINALLY showing up. Nothing like waiting until the last possible day to get it here! LOL But I am just thankful it is going to arrive today before I run out of my cat’s special food. 😀

  211. I love your site and usually enter more giveaways from here. I was disappointed today to try to enter the solar panel giveaway only to find its not available in my state. Why have a giveaway to enter in and not have it available to everyone not just people in 4 or 5 states?

  212. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful to go visit my favorite Weimaraner Ebba this weekend.

  213. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad at the sub-zero temperature that makes it hard to start the car every morning.

  214. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy my man bought me a gift card to Bikbok for no reason.

  215. What made me happy? My dog, who is going through chemo, seemed to have a good session. The oncology vet said he was doing well and looked healthy.

  216. I got mad today at Windows 8…why does it have to be so complicated? All I wanted to do was print a document, which I did finally, but it came out formatted all wrong. I had no more time to work on it so I sent it out anyway. Hopefully the content will make up for the fact that I am not a computer guru.

  217. I was happy today, i saw a great deal on bread flour so i went out and got a couple of bags. I made a nice loaf that im eating now.

  218. Today my daughter lost her cell phone and we later found it. The case had been run over by a car. But, the phone is o.k. I am happy about that.

  219. Today I am hopeful that tomorrow brings smiles, and fun. My husband has been such a great guy this week, while I recovered from a back injury. I am hoping to spend tomorrow doing something special for him.

  220. Today I was able to work on crocheting a blanket I am making for a Christmas present. It always makes me happy to crochet. I love giving presents that I make with my own hands.

  221. Well, nothing really made me mad today. I did watch a news story about the death of Carol Ann Susi, who played Mrs. Wolowitz on Big Bang Theory. Cancer sucks. Cancer can make me very mad!

  222. Even though I was happy to spend the day with my nephew today, his Dad is off tomorrow so I am hopeful I can spend tomorrow not watching SpongeBob, lol. I can only take so much SpongeBob.

  223. I got mad today when one of my neighbors didn’t clean up after her dog and I ended up stepping in the mess.

  224. I guess I am mad that my cat finds it necessary to stick her paws in the back of my head when she lays behind me on the couch. Ah kittah!

  225. I’m happy that the sun is shining this morning and it’s a tad warmer up to 20 degrees.
    Hopeful that next week will be warmer.
    No mad today.

  226. Mad, yes, today I was mad. I knew I could smell cat in the kitchen but thought maybe it was another cat spraying the back door. I was making a big apple crumble (some to freeze & some to have tonight after Pilates) and found the biggest cat poo I’ve ever seen in one of the kitchen cupboards – ugh & yeuch! It’s taken me over an hour to scrub the cupboard & wash all the casserole dishes etc. I know he hasn’t been well but honestly, this thing was enormous and so untypical of him. Ah, well, not the end of the world.

  227. We’re still waiting for Dad’s latest results to come from his consultant. Dad took one look at the weather this morning and decided he’d stay in bed – just not like him at all. He’s always on the internet. Mum’s just taken him out for a pub grub lunch so hopefully he’ll cheer up a bit.

  228. Today what has made me happy is the feeling of gratefulness I have after reading some of the other peoples’ comments – I do not have 5″ of snow to deal with (just more rain) and we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving so don’t have to worry about what to serve. Completely understand the previous commentator re. Quorn products though – I don’t eat meat/fish at all so rely on Quorn-type products if I’m looking to reproduce the ‘meaty’ texture and it is annoying when they’re suddenly unavailable. Hopefully she’ll be able to sort something out.

  229. Today I am mad because two local stores that have ALWAYS carried the Quorn Turk’y Roast we have used for YEARS for our Thanksgiving meals are NOT carrying them this year! I was literally in tears last night thinking my Thanksgiving meal was going to be ruined the one year that I have family coming for the meal! Every year these two stores have sold out of these roasts, so I am at a loss as to why they are not carrying them this year. I will be heartbroken if I can’t find what I need for my meal. It would be like a meat eater not being able to find any turkey!

  230. Today I am hopeful because after my hubby not being able to find the Quorn Turk’y roasts we need for Thanksgiving after shopping in two stores we have ALWAYS been able to find them, I contact Quorn to make sure they were still making these products and they are. I am hopeful we WILL be able to find these roasts and our Thanksgiving meal will not be ruined!

  231. I am taking my sons schnauzer to the vet this morning. She has some small growths on her back. I am hopeful that he is ok

  232. My son coming home with an “A” on his spelling paper (unusual) made me hopeful today! Hope that will be a trend!

  233. I was mad today when my car wouldn’t start. It made a weird noise, but as soon as I had someone look at it, it worked fine and made no noise!

    1. I did not click on the “What Me Me Mad” Button today because I had done this last week (or I thought I did) and clicked on it then — but it never showed up. So this comment is for that.

  234. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful to know many dogs are rescued from dog meat traders.

  235. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad a co-worker is not cooperating in the project and now the whole group is late for result.

  236. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy I received positive comments from boss today on my monthly reports.

  237. I wasn’t really mad today, just frustrated. Having to wait for 90 minutes in a government office to get some paperwork straightened out just shows how chaotic dealing with legal stuff can be. Plus I had to sit next to a woman who was coughing the whole time. Thank goodness I got a flu shot. But, I got it done.

  238. I was very happy today because I got to go out to a steak restaurant with my dad; as a late Veteran’s Day gift. The food was great.

  239. Today I am hopeful that I am able to get to my mom’s house for Thanksgiving, or at least if I stay home that it is a warm, wonderful holiday.

  240. Today I was so happy to see the plow go by our house. I am so thankful that those road workers get up so early to make sure that the roads are safe for me and my family to travel. It made me happy.

  241. I was talking about how high my rent has become for my one bedroom apartment today. The landlord has been raising it every year and it’s hard to save anything even with 2 jobs when my rent keeps going up. Just thinking about it made me so mad today.

  242. I’ve been following an awful news story where a local woman got attacked and beaten badly just because she objected to another woman letting her child have a tantrum in a store. I feel so bad for the poor woman who was beaten, and felt awful that a lot of people seemed to want to protect the criminal in this case. I just heard that the criminal was finally caught and will be charged for her crime today. that makes me feel hopeful!

  243. it made me happy that I unexpectedly ran into some old friends at Starbucks today. Sat down and enjoyed coffee with them.

  244. What made me hopeful? Well, I’m hopeful that this nasty cold spell will end in a few days & we will go back to normal Fall slightly chilly days!

  245. I’m taking Dad to the doc tomorrow for his latest batch of test results. Hopefully it’ll be good news, he’s down in the dumps again and raging against the world and his own mortality, his aging body, you name it, he’s got a reason to grouch. We’ve just had Rememberance Day over here (your Veteran Day) and it’s the anniversary of his little brother’s death AND he hates Christmas and New Year … Hoping for a couple of dry sunny days to raise his spirits a bit.

  246. Not mad today Connie but sad: I was going through lasy year’s Christmas cards, to make my own gift tags & found cards from family friends no longer with us, especially Aggie. Such a quirky, wonderful woman who decided last January that she’d had enough of 3 times a week dialysis and chronic arthritis (she’d been a ski instructor and travelled the world) and so refused any more treatment and died a week later at home with her family. So typical of her, always doing things on her own terms and I think of her every day. Wherever she is I bet she’s enjoying a gin& tonic (or three) and dancing on tables!

  247. I got all the Christmas cards written today so that’s another job crossed off the list! Honestly, all this fuss for just a couple of days off. Still, wouldn’t miss it for the world!

  248. I have not been mad today. I try to pray each morning when I first get up and it helps me to stay on the right track

  249. Today I am mad because my RX insurance company CSRs are idiots. I sent them an email asking for clarification on what a symbol beside my script online pricing meant. Their response? They didn’t answer my question and gave me pricing on the wrong dosage of the drug I am on. I didn’t ask for pricing. I had to write them back and tell them AGAIN what I wanted the info on. ATTENTION TO DETAIL IS A LOST ART! UGH!!!

  250. Today I am hopeful because last night my cat, Piggy, started treating her brother, Meeko, like she used to treat her now departed brother, Gus. It is the first signs of healing I have seen in her behavior and it gives me hope that my fur babies are starting to heal from the loss of their brother, Gus.

  251. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad at my man for ruining lunch again. I can never count on him for making a proper meal.

  252. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy my man’s Christmas gift arrived without damage.

  253. I guess I had a fairly good day, because nothing really made me mad. Ok, it did rain a little, which aggravated me.

  254. Hmm, what made me hopeful today? Well, we bought a new heater which makes me hopeful our heating bills will go down this Winter, lol.

  255. I am happy that I have a warm place to be: snow & 15 degrees outside.
    I’m hopeful that Spring will come again.
    I’m mad that the dogs want to fight each other today.

  256. Seeing a group of teens carry an elderly lady’s groceries to her car definitely made me feel hopeful! Their parents should be so proud!

  257. I understand it is a holiday and I believe a very important one but have to admit I am a little mad there is no mail today. Always love getting the mail.

  258. Hopeful? I am not really hopeful about a lot these days and I have been pretty bummed out about these people that I know. So I guess I still kind of hope there are nice people but it seems doubtful most times. I do meet nice people but there are always in another state, across the country or something and never here where I am.

  259. Um. I was in the grocery store and this old man was reading the packs of carrots. Like different brands. Hello they are carrots….just pick one! So that made me mad.

  260. I purchased an ebook on Kobo over a month ago and despite emails etc. am still unable to download it. Now Kobo wants me to ring them so that they can talk to me – I’m sorry, but why on earth should I have to pay for the call? I can’t really afford to lose out on the book but I’m so mad at them, I just feel like telling them to shove it where the sun doesn’t shine.

  261. Dad had more tests today & we’re all hoping that that the reaults will show that his tumour has shrunk. We’ll have the results by the end of the week so fingers crossed.

  262. I’m just happy that I’m home and in out of the pouring rain. I had to drive to Dublin & back (5 hour round trip) earlier & couldn’t see 100 yards in front of me because of the heavy rain. Just to get indoors with my hands wrapped around a big mug of tea was heavenly!

  263. Today I am mad because I am being ridiculously sensitive with my husband. For the past few months, he can’t joke with me like he normally does without me getting hurt or pouty or just bratty. I don’t know what is going on, but it is really getting on my nerves. We had a fight this morning over what shirt I picked out for him for work! It was totally my fault and I feel horrible. I’m just so mad at myself.

  264. Today I am hopeful because my husband is going to Whole Foods after work to get our Quorn Turk’y Roast for Thanksgiving. We always run the risk of them being out of them because the store never orders enough for everyone who wants them. I am hoping that going this early in the month will enable us to get the four we need!

  265. Today I am happy because that big winter storm that is hitting the midwest is NOT hitting me! LOL I am in the midwest, but in Ohio, so it is only going to be rain here. SO happy!

  266. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful to know my man’s eyes are getting better and no more checkup is needed.

  267. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m mad to read news about my country being famous for dog meat trading. What a disgust!

  268. I’m mad that I could not find a document I need. I’m not very organized and I know it’s here, just not in the 300 places I looked for it today.

  269. Somehow my computer browser has become corrupt. It is so frustrating. I don’t understand why people will knowingly mess with people. It makes me mad.

  270. As i sit watching the snow plows plow the road, and see an occasional car drive by the house, I am hopeful that people all stay safe and sound. The roads are getting really bad and it is now “rush hour”. Hopefully those people are all able to make it home safe.

  271. Today we got about 5″ of snow. It was so beautiful. The snow is so pretty, it makes me happy. I know it is hard for other people, but while I am safely in my home, I really enjoy it!

  272. Hopefully Dad gets on ok tomorrow with another round of tests. Anyway, it’s choir tomorrow night so whatever worries I have will be sung away!

  273. Tomorrow I’m taking Dad back to Dublin for another check-up – hate driving in this mad weather: I end up squinting & with a pain in my back – grr!

  274. I took my sister’s dog for a long walk today – it’s very wild, wet & windy, great for putting a bloom on your cheeks. I thoroughly enjoyed it but I’m afraid I ended up carrying the dog home as she just gave up! Should have seen the look on her face – if she could pout she would have!

  275. Realizing I have several dr appts to keep this week actually makes me mad. When I have to leave the house a lot I get behind on my couponing and contest entering. Lol

  276. Knowing I have a $100 check coming in the mail today made me very hopeful. Now I will be able to buy groceries this week.

  277. Um? I am hopeful that things will start to get better for me although everything seems to be going to shit right now. It has got to get better, right?

  278. I am mad because my oldest cat is getting on my very last. He thinks all I am here for is to feed him treats 24/7.

  279. Today I am hopeful because I am currently unemployed but last week I got a phone interview and and hopeful that they will call me back.

  280. Today I am happy because I get to have a free lunch at a restaurant that I have not been to in ages! I cannot wait!

  281. Today I am kind of mad because I woke up to 3 inches of snow. I hate commuting in snow and it is too early for snow!

  282. Today I am mad because of the passive aggressive neighbors I have. When hubby was leaving this morning, there was a huge pile of leaves shoved up against our front curb. We don’t rake our leaves as we have an organic yard. We allow the leaves to naturally break down to feed the soil over the winter as nature intended. By putting that big pile of leaves at our curb, it is obvious that our neighbors are trying to pressure us to comply with the mainstream fall leaf raking scene. Well, it is not happening. We will just spread those over our lawn!

  283. Today I am hopeful because the visit with our niece and nephew went amazingly well, so much better than I could have even wished for or imagined. I am hoping that this is a new phase in our relationship with them and that, as adults, we will be able to have a relationship with them that was kept from us when they were children.

  284. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m angry to know that someone hit my mom’s dog. I hope such people die in great pain.

  285. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful the shoes I ordered online would arrive this week for the weekend’s party.

  286. Today being the last day I work before I am off for 7 days is what made me happy today. Also, I think I am going to try and help feed the homeless this year so that made me very happy too. Hope you had an awesome day!

  287. I talked to my daughter today who is away at college. We are planning to have dinner tomorrow night just for a quick visit. I’m happy!

  288. I wasn’t really mad at all today. If I had to make something up it would be that I couldn’t eat popcorn with my hubby while watching a TV show (I’m dieting so the popcorn with butter was off limits!).

  289. My Mom broke her wrist yesterday and my Dad just had back surgery. I’m hopeful that he’ll be off of pain medicine soon so that he can drive, because one of them needs to be able to do that!

  290. My hubby and I cleaned out our crawl space together today and it looks so much better—made me very happy to get organized!

  291. I was sooo happy to get to sleep in today! It was the first time in over a week where I had a day to rest and it felt great!

  292. Well, it didn’t exactly make me mad, but having to get up early kind of aggravated me, lol. That’s why I’m so tired right now!

  293. Tomorrow we are supposed to get a ton of snow. I am hopeful that it will be a wonderful day, filled with the kids playing in the snow, and making snowmen 🙂

  294. Today I woke to 2″ of snow. It was so nice. I was able to hot tub and sit and listen to the morning. It was so quiet, and peaceful. I was very happy 🙂

  295. Hoorah! Last day of antibiotics for the cat & (tough wood) not a single scratch. Hopefully he’s on the mend now.

  296. Today the weather was glorious apart from one heavy thunderstorm so I got up early and pottered about in the garden till I got too cold. Always happiest in the garden & in the open air.

  297. Today I had the oven on automatic with a gorgeous casserole in it for dinner. Took Mum & Dad out for the day and when we got back it was to discover that I’d set the oven to come on at 3 in the morning instead of the afternoon. Grrr! Cheese on toast for Sunday dinner then!

  298. The thing that made me happy today was just waking up and being with my family. Other then that I had a pretty horrid day sadly.

  299. Today I am happy for the strength in my Moms’ voice.She had a feeding tube placed last week that really set her back,but to day is a new day!

  300. I am not angry today. I try not to get upset because I know God is guiding me and directing me. He never leaves my side

  301. I am hoping today that I have a good day at work and I do not get any admissions. I am hoping all my patients have a wonderful day

  302. I suppose I am still hopeful that something good will happen to me although I am for the most part pretty doubtful. I guess there is always hope????

  303. Um? I just woke up so not a lot has happened as of yet. I guess I am mad since I about to give up on trying to have any real friends.

  304. Today I am mad because it appears that the knee medication that I started less than a year ago is no longer fully working. I have a lot more swelling and pain than I did this time last year, and that is ON the medication for inflammation and pain. Looks like a visit to the doc is in order, again. grrrr! I am SO tired of being in pain.

  305. Today I am happy because hubby made me breakfast in bed as a surprise! It was SOOOOO good too! Scrambled, local, organic eggs with organic cheddar cheese, whole wheat toast with black current jam, and veggie maple sausage patties. Topped off with a glass of OJ! MMM!

  306. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m angry my best friend came out and his family is rejecting him.

  307. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy to hear from dad on Father’s Day. It’s comforting to know he’s happy and doing fine.

  308. Now you want what made me Mad (I think that’s what you meant)….I was pricing Walnuts at the grocery store and the prices they want made me mad! I wanted to make nut rolls again this year, however, at those prices I don’t know! My husband asked me when the last time I combed my hair today and that made me mad! (at least I HAVE hair! his is falling out!) Also, when I get done on this computer tonight and go up to get a shower and go to bed, I know my husband is going to gripe that I spend too much time on here and I enter too many contests, and it’s bad for my eyes, and yatta yatta yatta and that’s going to make me mad! Michele 🙂

  309. Now you want hopeful….. Well I guess I’m hopeful that I can win some Christmas gifts because we had a rough year and money is tooooooo tight! I’m hopeful that this situation will soon rectify itself! I’m hopeful that my son-in-law won’t get sent to Africa like an awful lot of ARMY men are. I’m hopeful that my grandson will have a Happy Birthday on the 15th of this month (even though we can’t be there!). I can’t think of anything else!
    Michele 🙂

  310. Let’s see, What made me happy today….. Well, My hubby made dinner tonight! But, as usual, I had to do the dishes! He made hamburger helper (eh not a big fan!), but he did it and I didn’t have to cook! Oh, and he went with me to the grocery store today too – Probably because he wanted to keep an eye on how much was going to be spent! But, I had company so that made me happy. And, of course, my 2 “fur babies”, Maxie and Summer, always make me happy! I think I’m getting a cold too and I didn’t get a flu shot yet! YIKES! I’m still standing so that makes me happy! Entering giveaways in hopes of winning Christmas gifts for my kids here at home and my 2 grand babies that live in KY I guess makes me happy – if I win that is! Thanks, Michele 🙂

  311. Nothing made me mad today. I had a pretty good day. Other then my ankle hurting from twisting it a couple of days ago.

  312. I feel hopeful now that we got things out of storage. Now we won’t have to pay for the storage each month and it will save us money.

  313. Thinking about my mother in law and sister in law and thinking of the holiday’s looming and having to endure them and all the stuff they have said and done to me over the years.

  314. I had to keep praying and saying Bible verses to myself because right now the future looks pretty scary. I ook to the Lord from where my help comes

  315. I woke up feeling at peace even though the last 3 months have been non sto p stress. I also did an hour yoga class and took a short nap. Even wrapped a few Christmas gifts one of my least favorite jobs why I start early to do a little at a time

  316. Last night I was sleeping and was awoke by a mouse crewing on some newspaper we have in our room. It was very annoying. I tried to find him but he would hid each time I turned on the lights. I only was able to sleep for about 3 hours. It made me mad.

  317. At the craft fair today, I met a man who has a consignment store. He want’s to carry our products, and was very excited by the high quality items. I am very hopeful that this will be a good business contact and we will increase our sales.

  318. Today I went to a craft fair and had a wonderful day. Everyone was very vocal about loving our products. It meant a lot to see people excited by our product. It made me very happy.

  319. I got mad today when a nosy neighbor came to visit and started going through our mailbox when she got out of her car.

  320. Well, the cat is still eating his kitty litter – ugh. Rang the vet & I’m to keep an eye on him over the weekend & update the vet on Monday morning. Hope he’s going to be ok.

  321. Mad at myself again for not getting up earlier – grr! So little daylight these days & I wasted it in bed (mind you my dream was worth it!).

  322. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful my man’s dad will like the cake I made for him to celebrate Father’s Day tomorrow.

  323. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m happy we had a sushi fest today at home. Everything was perfect: salmon, hamachi, unagi, and shrimps!

  324. Opening $40 worth of ribs to find that they are rotten & stinking up the house made us all mad! lol (They were soon replaced!)

  325. Knowing I have a $25 Ruby Tuesday restaurant gift card made me hopeful today that I get to use it tonight.

  326. Today I am mad because family can never be simple. Our niece and nephew are visiting from WV and contacted us for the first time EVER to see us when they were visiting other family members. Well, we had planned to just see them for a 4 top dinner and catch up and get to know them as the adults they now are. Enter the rest of my husband’s family AS USUAL! They tried to hijack our gathering with them by texting and inserting themselves in the dinner we had planned etc. My husband made it quite clear that he only wanted to see our niece and nephew as planned, but now I am betting the rest of the family is mad at us for this. They shouldn’t be. We should be allowed to get with family members a few at a time and not a whole houseful where it is so loud and annoying you can’t get a decent visit in. But I know them and I know that they will be mad at us. Makes me very angry.

  327. Today I am hopeful because I have made my Thanksgiving meal grocery list and I am slowly whittling it down via sales and freebies to a manageable expense. I think we will have the cheapest but most organic Thanksgiving ever this year! 😀

  328. Today I am happy because last night I was able to get $208.71 worth of groceries and household items for $50.43 out of pocket using sales and coupons! WOO HOO!!!

  329. I am not mad at all today. I try every day to get up and be thankful for everything God lets come my way. He is in control and will help me through everything

  330. Mad today would be that hubby’s oldest son got out of jail and was threatening the new tenants of his last address. Had a big argument about it.

  331. Today Happy for me is the leaves are just about done falling. Hence we are just about done cleaning up others yards. Woohoo!

  332. Tomorrow is a craft fair that I am working at. I am hopeful that people will be excited by what I am bringing, and are in the mood to buy 🙂

  333. Today my dog tracked chicken poop through my entire home. I am SO happy I have hardwood, and not carpet! The hardwood was hard enough to clean, carpet would have taken days and a carpet cleaner.

  334. Today my dog decided to track chicken poop though my entire home. Had to scrub all of our hardwood floors. I was so very mad.

  335. Well, the cat continues to improve & giving him his drops has been scratch-free so far but now I’ve caught him eating cat litter! Just googled it & it seems to be a symptom of anaemia. Have to ring the vet in the morning & keep my fingers crossed.

  336. Something made me extremely angry today but rather than reacting or biting my tongue I tried my latest go-to mindfulness technique: I thought of penguins! Hand on heart, it’s impossible to be angry with visions of Pingu et al waddling about!

  337. Another long drive today as Dad goes for more tests – why, oh why don’t people use their headlights? Cannot understand the mentality of it at all, or talking on their mobile – I even saw one woman texting as she was driving – what the hell?

  338. I am hopeful that they will find a cure for diabetes. They are doing trials on a new drug on humans that worked on mice (it cured the mice).

  339. What made me mad is that people are consistently assholes. Like don’t say you can do something if you cannot. I had this whole debacle with this guy on Listia yesterday and it really pissed me off.

  340. I’m happy that I’ll be going up to Estes Park this afternoon for my chorus retreat. I’m hopeful that we’ll get a lot done and have beautiful weather. No mad today.

  341. I was mad today because I felt a little sick this morning. I would at least like to wake up feeling good at the start of the day.

  342. It made me happy today to get an early start on my house cleaning. Starting it is the hardest part for me.

  343. Today I am mad because I have been waiting for a response from my student loan company since the beginning of October and have gotten nothing other than phone calls and overdue email notices threatening to turn me over to collections. I emailed them and they informed me that they denied my forbearance on October 8th. I never got ANY notification.

  344. Today I am hopeful because we were able to afford to get new tires last night for our car. My hubby commutes 90 mins a day and I worry so much about him out there driving with all the other people who may not be as careful as he is. At least now I hope that he won’t have a blow out or flat during his commute!

  345. Today I am happy because it is Friday, my hubby is off for the weekend, and we don’t have ANYTHING Halloween related to do! Just get to do whatever we want! LOL Don’t get me wrong, I loved our Halloween build weekends in October, but I am ready for a break for a year! LOL

  346. When I woke up this morning I realized that I did not have to work either of my two jobs today. That made me happy.

  347. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m angry at a drug addict teenager who tried to steal our car today. I hope he dies in pain.

  348. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful to have a nice Father’s Day this Sunday. I hope my dad receives my wishes.

  349. What make me mad today was my phone ringing when I was trying to sleep. I know that telemarketers have jobs to do as well as anybody else but they also seem to call when I am trying to sleep.

  350. I am hopeful that my part time job that I go last month will help me pay for my kids Christmas and help on some bills. It has been a hard year but I don’t give up, I just keep trying to stay positive and know that tomorrow is a new day.

  351. what make me happy today was being able to walk better. I did something to my foot the other day and have not been able to walk very good but I think I am finally on the mend.

  352. I have been mad today because my husband and I have still not received a phone call from our apartment complex. We will be moving at the end of this month and we are waiting for them to let us know our move in date. In the meantime, we can’t make any moving arrangements because we don’t know when we’ll have to move! It’s frustrating!

  353. I felt hopeful today whenever I was practicing singing earlier. I recently quit smoking and was afraid that I had lost my voice, but since I’ve quit, it sounds like I’m getting it back. I’m hopeful that I’ll be singing soon the way I used to!

  354. I can say with some happiness that nothing made me mad today. My nephew was sick, but that made me sad, not mad, lol.

  355. Today I prepared for a craft fair that I am going to sell at. I am very hopeful. I hope we do really well and make enough to cover our costs.

  356. Today I woke up and it was snowy outside. I know the rest of the world dreads snow, but I just love it. It is so beautiful. It is so peaceful. It made me very happy. 🙂

  357. Happy happy day: My new glasses & frames are being picked up out of town by one of my best friends … cannot wait for something new!!

  358. What made me mad today was discovering I have little to no budget available for groceries this week after adding up all the bills due.

  359. What made me happy today was driving across town in a rain storm and arriving safely both to and on my way home.

  360. I didn’t realize that my comments needed to be longer. I’m sorry about that. Nothing really made me mad today except having to wait an hour to see my doctor.

  361. What made me happy today was to be able to get out of the office and go on a lil adventure and see something I’ve never seen before!

  362. I am working on a crocheted pair of baby booties and have been having a hrd time with the pattern. I am now hopeful that they are going to turn out, I really think I figured out what I was doing wrong.

  363. Heading to Pilates class later this evening and hoping my bad knee holds up after all the driving & walking today.

  364. Mad at other drivers: had a 4 hour round trip to Dublin & back down to Wexford. A rotten day, pouring rain, mist & windy and still there are drivers with no headlights on – utter madness.

  365. Happy, happy, happy: Dad’s results are excellent. Big relief for the family; he’s 81 & good for another couple of years (tough wood).

  366. Lately the thing that makes me happiest each day is the school not calling me. My son has apparently decide to go into comedy. The last call his principal told me he has very strong opinions on Obamacare and gun control for a 10 year old. I think the 26 year old was just too easy and everyone has to pay their dues, or something.

  367. I was happy to have a great laugh over Alice and her brother & sister. Hopeful that the lovely weather will last at least til Monday. No mad today.

  368. Today I am mad because last night our neighbor’s kid hit our house with a frisbee. I am so tired of them coming into our yard and stuff when they play in the circle. Their parents have just not taught them about boundaries and respect for other peoples’ property and it is getting really old.

  369. Today I am hopeful because my college aged niece and nephew (twins) reached out to my hubby and I for the first time in their lives. We have always wanted to be a part of their lives, but their mother discouraged it because she thought we were too liberal, so we never had a relationship with them. They are coming to our town this weekend and emailed us to get together. This is a first. They come up her often but have NEVER reached out for a visit with us.

  370. Today I am happy because we are getting four new tires for our car. I was afraid we would not be able to afford them before winter hit and one of them is already leaking air. I am so thankful for 3 paycheck months! LOL

  371. Thank you for the giveaway! I am so excited. I hope I win!! Thanks for the chance! I’m hopeful to know one of my friends came out as gay today with his family’s support.

  372. Happy for another beautiful day and a good swim class. Hopeful that the weather will be nice for our trip to Estes Park. Mad that I tilted over while getting the dog’s ball out of the garden and then smashed my thumb in the car door (but not badly).

  373. Oh, not much made me mad today, lol. Possibly, I get fed up with political news still being on. Can we have a break until the next elections?

  374. Today I was watching the news and there was a man that was just sentenced to prison for committing such a heinous crime against a very young girl. It made me so mad. How dare he scar a child with his disgusting act. I find it really hard to not judge people like this. I had to turn off the news so that I could avoid hearing (and judging) all the recent crimes in my area.

  375. Today I had friends come over to my house. Prior to them coming, I made a bunch of Snicker-doodle cookies. When I served them everyone was so pleased with how good they tasted. It made me happy 🙂

  376. Today was my weekly Bible study. I cherish these meetings and they always make me hopeful for becoming a better person. I always feel such kinship with those in my group, and we have such fun.

  377. I was disappointed today when I heard who is going to be our new governor. I feel he is all for the rich people

  378. Driving Dad up to Dublin tomorrow morning to get the results of his last batch of tests – fingers crossed all’s well. It’ll get him out of the house as well – he always slumps at this time of year – so we’ll stop off on the way home for lunch & make a day of it.

  379. Today I’m happy because Mom & I spent a good hour singing together. She’s a wonderful pianist & plays every day otherwise her hands get stiff (she’s 81). She sang the melody & I harmonised. It’s guaranteed to keep us cheerful.

  380. Mad at myself again today (what’s new?): I woke early with the alarm, switched it off & woke again at lunchtime! Half the day gone & it’s dark at 4pm these days so no time for gardening. I suppose I must have needed it, but I’ve been feeling dopey all day & can’t wait to go back to bed.

  381. Today I am mad because my friends are really letting me down lately. People who I thought enjoyed spending time with me are ignoring me and not inviting me to do anything with them anymore. I guess I am more hurt than mad but regardless it sucks. I don’t want to chase them anymore and have stepped back to see if they want to still be a part of my life. I guess I am getting my answer.
