I have some vacation time coming up. My motivation is sorely lacking at the mo… 😦

I’ve got a huge list of things I need done both personally and for work and I’m feeling overwhelmed, which is bad for the Doc’s orders of Stay Calm and don’t stress. 😦

I need to somehow return a lot of phone calls this morning… wish me luck, I’ve got back to back appointments already, and then a lot of email’s to reply to. A few ppl think I’m mad at them, because I haven’t replied. OI! no. I’m just flippin’ busy in my life right now.

I rarely whine, but right now…W H I N E…someone send me some cheese. LOL ah I still have that quirky sense of humor. 😉

take care and have an awesome day!

xoxo

International Day of Rural Women
October 15, 2015 in the World
The first International Day of Rural Women was observed on 15 October 2008. It recognizes “the critical role and contribution of rural women, including indigenous women, in enhancing agricultural and rural development, improving food security and eradicating rural poverty.”
Rural women play a critical role in the rural economies of both developed and developing countries. In most parts of the developing world they participate in crop production and livestock care, provide food, water and fuel for their families, and engage in off-farm activities to diversify their families’ livelihoods. In addition, they carry out vital functions in caring for children, older persons and the sick.
“We must enforce and protect the rights of rural women. When women have access to land, there are improvements in household welfare, agricultural productivity and gender equality. And greater progress is made against poverty, gender-based violence and HIV/ AIDS. It makes everybody better off.”
UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka

National Grouch Day
October 15, 2015 in the USA
This is a special day for all the grouchy people out there to celebrate. Grouches are typically miserable, grumpy, and irritable. They thrive off of others’ misfortunes, and only then are they “happy”.
National Grouch Day allows all grouches out there to celebrate their way of life. Not a grouch? This day also gives all the normally chipper people a day to complain for once! For those everyday grouches, here are a few ways to live a happier life: do a fun or silly activity, allow yourself only five minutes of negative time, do something to benefit others, or enjoy some healthy foods.
Celebrate National Grouch Day by being pessimistic, cranky, and irritable, and then be nice tomorrow! You can also celebrate by watching an episode of Sesame Street in honor of Oscar the Grouch.
