Good News, Bad News

Good news is:  It is Saturday and the weekend.  We had perfect weather until about a half an hour ago when the clouds started rolling in.  Right now we have a nice, steady rain shower.

Bad news is:  I have this song running through my mind over and over and over.  Arrrrrrrgh!  Why oh why did I let my son show this video to me?

Good news is:  I got a really good deal on one of those family size containers of ground beef the other day.

Bad news is:  I ate a hamburger yesterday and it has sat like a brick in my stomach ever since.  I have to portion it up and get the rest in the freezer.  The thought of it makes me want to, well, you know.

Good news is:  We had a family get-together the other night and celebrated the Spring birthdays on my hubbys' side of the family.  We had a great time!

Bad news is:  I ate way too much and I know I gained five pounds that one night.  My sister's-in-laws make the yummiest baked beans and sloppy joes on the planet.  I was a total pig.

Oh well.  I am going to stay focused on the good news.  But the bad reminds us be conscience of our health and not take things for granted.  And to not play a video that your teenage son insists that you just have to watch.

FYI, today is National Scrapbook Day.  I love to scrapbook in order to relieve stress, get creative and preserve memories.  Today I'm hoping to make a card or two and print out pictures from the other night and create a scrapbook page or two.  Or seven.

Have a great weekend everyone! :-)


  1. You are so right to try and focus on the good in life. I do try to do that.
    As for that video, I am not going to watch it no matter how curious I am

  2. You know I HAD to check it out, lol.
    I have never heard it before, so happy I don't know the words to that song, as I would be singing it and as aweful as it is, I could make it worse with my voice, lol.

  3. Hi Pam!
