What the hell is going on???

Please forgive me for being a total downer on a Monday morning.  I really tried to muster up some happiness and sunshine for you today, but it’s just not happening.  I feel like there is way too much bad stuff happening right now.  I mean, there are oil spills and earthquakes and volcano eruptions and economic insanity.  But even closer to home, I feel like everyone I talk to is giving me bad news.  I’ve heard about sick kids, sick parents, divorces, miscarriages, job losses, house foreclosures…you name it and it’s happening to everyone around me.  I’ve heard very little good news lately and, boy, could I use some. 

So, I’m asking a favor…if you have a good, happy story, please leave me a comment and tell me your fabulous news.  I really need a little sunshine because I have a feeling it’s going to be a crappy day at work…I have some more bad news, but this time I’m the messenger.  I really need a pick-me-up! 

Thank you all in advance for spreading the sunshine!


  1. hmmm – okay, how about this – my husband is going away on business for the week! Happy happy happy!

  2. You are so right. I wasn’t even thinking about it but you’re right. :(

    Next weekend I am going on a booze cruise and then the following weekend I have a girls trip to Palm Springs.

    If that’s not happy news (for me) I don’t know what is!

  3. I’m going on vacation in 11 days!

    There is a ton of nastiness in the world right now. It tends to weigh on the mood and definatly does not help one feel better about getting out of bed on a cold, rainy Monday.

  4. I’m going to Las Vegas this weekend to visit a friend who lives there for a Bachelorette Party! But yes there is a lot of sucky stuff going on in the world.

  5. I wish I had much to give you this morning. It seems like today is pretty much hella lame all around.

    Did you at least have a good dog mother’s day weekend? (M took me out for cat mother’s day dinner on Saturday night!)

  6. i know what you mean! i have been saying the same thing recently…

    all i’ve got for right now is that summer is coming soon! once i get on the beach and feel the sand between my toes, i feel much better!

  7. Whatever you do, do NOT read my blog today. I am typically spreading sunshine all over the place – not today. It’s all about carnivorous birds. Hope tomorrow is better for you. I’ll drink to that!

  8. Let’s see….it’s Tuesday? Which is way better than Monday, right? 😀

  9. Firstly, I’m new to your blog but have been catching up over the past couple of days. So, hello!

    Happy happy happy…let’s see. It’s meant to be warm and sunny on the weekend, and you’ve only got three full days to get through before you can start enjoying it.

  10. I’m so sorry you’re dealing with all this girl. It’s been an extremely hectic week here for me and I’m just now getting around to all my favorite blogs (yes you’re a favorite).

    I don’t have any particularly good news on my home front but one of my besties back home is pregnant and I’m so excited for her and her husband! This will be their 2nd baby. So there’s my mushy news!


  11. Different people in all countries take the business loans from various creditors, because this is comfortable.

  12. I forgot to arrange for someone to feed my cat when my hub and I were away (for FOUR DAYS!). But when I called my aunt crying, she raced over and checked on him and (over) fed him and watered him.
    And he perfectly fine! Barely even lost any weight. As an extra bonus he was crazy-affectionate when we got home (although I wouldn’t recommend starving your pets to garner affection).
