Wine & Cheese ~ 45th Serving

Welcome to Wine & Cheese, my weekly, Wednesday whine session.

Every week on Wednesday I devote a blog to whining. Despite being a really happy, positive person, I do have things that annoy me at times.

I never let anything grate on my nerves for long but thought it would be fun to vent them periodically in my blogs.

I also feel that good things, the cheese in life, should be acknowledged as well.

I’m even going to throw in a bit of dessert, a piece of virtual chocolate, something that made me laugh or smile just a bit more than normal.

Sit back and join me now for the 45th serving of some wine and cheese!

😦  Week 2 of this sniffles, cold/flu bug thingie.  Okay I AM feeling much better, in fact I feel great!  But my nose just won’t give it up, and I’m sick of blowing it.  I’m single handedly keeping the tissue companies in business and it frankly SUCKS!

😦  Just once I’d love to drink an entire cup of coffee without having to stick it in the microwave half a dozen times.  I pour a cup and the baby I watch poo’s her diaper.  I warm it up and begin to enjoy it again, her nose is running snot candles from her nostrils to her mouth and she needs her sock put back on, toys relocated back within reach and one of the cats is playing soccer with ornaments from the tree…again. Warm it up and the phone rings…you get the idea.

😦  These darn cats are losing their 9 little lives fast!  Well 2 of the cats and it would figure one is mine.  She climbs the Christmas trees (we have 2) and knocks an ornament to the floor at which point the youngest cat starts playing with it.  We redecorate the trees several times a day, they never  look the same twice.  Squirt bottle is pointless, it has become a game to them to see if they can remove an ornament and then dodge the water coming at them.  I give up, they win!

😦  This is the last week I have kids to watch until after Christmas.  They crack us up and make for such a great day, going to miss them over the holidays.

😦  It appears as if my relationship with The Count has come to an end.  This makes me sad.  It hurts.  I’m so tired of having my heart broken.


🙂  While the kids are away  for 2 weeks I’ll have all that time to get out and recruit for my Avon business and seek out new customers.  🙂  🙂  🙂  yes this makes me happy!

🙂  I finally achieved President’s Recognition Club with Avon, having $10,100 in sales.  I managed to achieve this in 19 campaigns with makes me VERY happy.  I also achieved Unit Leader during that time.  I’m moving up and loving it!

🙂  I LOVE all the Christmas music on the radio, and the seasonal music channel on TV, great for the holiday spirit!

🙂  FREE books on Kindle!  I keep finding awesome books to get for my Kindle that are FREE and it rocks my world!

🙂  Fresh pot of coffee brewing…smells SO good.  Surrounded by family that loves me just for ME not who they hope I will be.  I am so blessed and truly happy despite the  heart aches.


  1. I am loving those free books too. You’ve had a busy (emotion-wise) week. And you found one more thing to “shelve” so you can move into the new year lighter. I have a feeling that 2012 is going to be a good one !!

    Happy Hump Day !
