We have a topic called Daily Gripes ~ so I thought we could also post the positive things that happen in our lives :) This could be something that happened to you today, this week, whenever! Daily Gripes is a great way to vent (everybody needs too!) but it's also great to remember the positive things that happens in our lives! And remember:

"Life is a journey, enjoy the ride!!"

My dad came home from rehab yesterday after a week in the hospital and two weeks in rehab. He's happy to be home. Now we just need to get him to walk without his walker .. but he is getting stronger every day!

I am going to be driving Easter Sunday and hope the traffic doesn't make me swear. LOL. It gets pretty hectic in a few spots. I will drive 70 and they will pass me on both sides.

Haha, I think I was the greatest sinner in SF, after all the four letter words I used on the freeway.

Today, I got to get back into the swing of things at work after having traveled for about 2 weeks. It's nice to see my friends and co-workers again.

Hey Frontrowjoe:

I was on a blog here recently where a man called entire city of San Francisco a "Den of Inequity" ..so how are you doing? Safe still? Nothing nasty rubbing off on you from all those "sinners" ? LOL.

My new chiropractor relieved some of my pain in back. Smile.

I am ashamed of myself. Because l had a Real Estate lady come with her husband to fix things that seniors need doing. She patched a hole in my screen. l hate flies.
Her husband moved the operating unit from left handed to right and tied down all the wires. Perfect job. They volunteer thru Helping Hands of the Rotary Club. I told all the things they did on my other threads. Needless to say l really appreciated them.

I keep hearing how nice all the units are that friends are moving into, l had to buy all my appliances. Get so jealous, l have to stop and think of my blessings.
I am so fortunate to be able to cover all my expenses and extra.

My homeless friend has a home. As of 3/1 she has a place back where she lived in Fort Bragg CA. The best senior housing l have ever lived in. Moved only because it is way far away from things. Windy road l hated travelling. But l loved the 4 years l lived there and considered them a vacation.

Frontrowjoe...you don't need water like we do. So we will hang onto every tenth of an inch we get. Smile.

The sun is out today already. The 6/10ths of an inch didn't make a dent in what we need. Food prices will jump. Well l am cynical about that and believe they jump with or without rain. LOL.

My positive happening today is the deposit in my bank is enough to meet all my needs.

They have a free air hose at a local auto shop. It's hidden around a corner so pretty much only customers know about it. Not a bad idea.

I wish we had some rain here! That would mean it's above freezing. :)
