Just thinking of my children and grandchildren always puts a smile on my face. I talk to Ben each morning and evening on the phone (the man is ALWAYS out of town) and he keeps me stabilized. I have a brand new baby kitten, a Manx, that I wake up to every morning (his picture is on my profile). I have named him BC (Ben's Cat....although Ben does not know about him yet. He gets to meet BC when he gets home on Thursday.) He snuggles by my neck every night....who in the world could wake up in a foul mood with that darling lying by you? He will be 2 months old on the 29th.

AWWW Marsha! There is nothing like animals -- I got the biggest kick out of our two dogs -- I pulled in the driveway, which is about a tenth of a mile long (country life!) -- I noticed the dogs started wagging their collective tails as soon as they saw me -- and they both act like I have been gone for two weeks! Another funny thing -- when I first moved in with my mother and she was convinced that I was going to take over her life -- no matter how I tried to reassure her -- it was incredibly stressful -- (its not that much fun to be screamed at constantly) -- my mother finally noticed that the dogs -- "her" dogs, would not leave my side -- she realized they were protecting me -- it went a long way to get her to settle down!

My nephews engergize me -- which reminds me -- one of my favorite passtimes is telling them blantant lies about their father, my brother. My two favorites being...
That "Funky Town" is his favorite song -- and that he had a disco ball in his bedroom growing up and
That he had a tail like a monkey -- that my parents had to have the doctors cut off, because they couldnt find PJ's to fit him.
Oddly enough, my nephews dont believe anything I tell them anymore.

I often get energized by my lovely wife. I mean like just a minute ago she said "When are you going to get off your dead a$$ and do something?" Other than that I guess it would be Murray, my big Lab, who takes me out to the boonies every morning for a long walk in the woods.

My s/o of course. Other than that, I love debating, always puts me in a good mood, as long as I'm arguing with a worthy opponent who plays by the rules.

I always find a nice compliment or a spontaneous smile quite motivating.

I get such a rush when I take that first jolt of coke--coca-cola that is. Brown gold, Atlanta C, Classic only, please. That and my 11 yr-old niece who amazes me every time I speak with her. Also, we are feeding cats who have been left by their previous owners who apparently moved and threw away the cats. We've given them names and they come running when called. They are so grateful to be loved and fed. Isn't that what we all need? Claudette

My daughter. I love when she comes and sits on my bed when I'm on the computer and tells me what's going on with her. She's 19 and I'm so happy we have a great relationship.

My hubby. He's my best friend and he still makes my heart flutter.

My family. Fainodraino, my baby brother, called me last night and we chatted for an hour about just stuff. I love to answer the phone and hear, "Fudypatootie!" (Yes, that's where the name came from.)

My friends. I enjoy sitting on the porch chatting with Laurie or Angie while petting the cats.

Oh, and course, my drink of choice. Coffee!!!

It has to be my 3 year old granddaughter. I retired a couple of months ago and I watch her during the day. I love the age- children are so blatantly honest and literal. It makes my day when out of the blue she pipes up with, "Grandma, I love you. You're my best friend".

Contact with other people, especially my grandchildren, and my dogs energize me. For instance, yesterday was rainy and dreary with a 50 mph wind. I worked on the computer, did a little of this and that around the house. Normally on Wednesdays I eat supper at the church but since it was so nasty out I thought I would forego that.

About 4:30 p.m. my grandson, 9, called and asked, "Grandma, did you know today was Wednesday?"

I could sense my plan fading of not leaving the house.

"Remember, Grandma, you said every Wednesday just me and you would eat supper at the church as OUR family time?"

(Darn - the one time I wished he would forget something, he remembered!)

So Christopher and I had supper at the church and I really did feel better and energized because I got out of the house and spent time with Chris and visted with other people.

I get energized when I visit a Sploofus thread that is like this -- not nasty or mean spirited. YEA

calling my daughter and hearing my four month old grand daughter cooing and giggling in the background always makes my day.

I was so engergized, that I decided to tackle painting the kitchen door -- DOM (dear old mom) and I have been redoing the kitchen. She is stripping the cabinet doors -- I am painting. Walls and interior cabinets are done, woo hoo! My parents owned a furniture refinishing shop, when I was young -- and God bless my mother, she insisted on doing the doors.... Any rate, they kitchen door needed done -- and as it is metal, I had a lovely can of spray paint, that I was reassured, will stick to anything, and can be sprayed at any angle. I taped up the window, I made a sort of newspaper cave around the door and went to town. I accomplished two things -- the door looks great, and I am now ready for Halloween as I didnt pay attention to the fine mist that the spray can made (I believe the appropriate noise is 'duh') so now I am a ghoulish white and from running my fingers through my hair, it is standing up at odd angles -- give me a torn shift and a scythe -- I will be just right for any Halloween gathering.
I am off to test the "warm water cleanup" theory.
