Gimme Some Good News!

Today's just one of those days and everyone around me has been a Negative Nancy.

I need some good news to go with my caffeine today.

So tell me something, anything good. Was it an auto-CLI? Did you get a new puppy? Have any plans for the weekend? Did you just get approved for a card you've been denied before? Did you win the lottery - will you take me with you?

 

Lay it on Mr. Frugal, bring on the cool notes of good news!

Re: Gimme Some Good News!

It is our 12 year anniversary and tonight we are heading off to our old haunt up in the beautiful forest - this is where we used to stay back in the day before we had kids, DH would go out hunting and I'd stay in the room reading and watching TV.  Haven't been there in 9 years or so.  SO EXCITED!!!!!!!

 

So there - is that Positive Patricia enough for ya?

 

Ha ha - have a good day.  Don't let those around you bring you down.

Well, then I'm sorry I edited it out then.. lol.. After I typed it, it just felt to heavy for good news, so I deleted it.. I'm still waiting on my chem grade, hoping for an A, but it was borderline.

 

I've applied for a couple jobs I'm really excited about myself. It was funny to me because the one that called me in and offered me a job had always autorejected me before for some reason. Years ago I really wanted to work for them, but, later heard that they were awful to work for and was relieved they never called me. I only applied because Careerbuilder suggested it and I only needed to press "enter".. lol

 

I see a lot of accounting type jobs, if that's your major you should be good to go I would think.
