Be MERRY!!!
Ugh, I am in the same boat. I took them today for the first time in years, and they have messed me up. I remember now why I shouldn't take them- I get jittery/antsy and sleepy at the same time.

Hope yours helped!!

((Hugs))

I got back to studying my academic vocabulary today because I start my second year at uni in less than three weeks and I want to be prepared for it. Anyway, studying somehow made me feel sleepy so I had more coffee today than usually in order to keep me going. ^^ My excitement for the day came back in the evening because European basketball championship began today and my home country's national team played their first game. (I use to play basketball in Lithuania so I know the game and its rules, and therefore watching the match makes a lot more sense to me than for majority of ladies. Deciding which player is handsome and which is not is obviously easier than sticking on the game itself. ^^) Anyway, despite the fact that we lost this time, I'm still optimistic about upcoming games - there will definitely be better times, won't there?

Sorry for such a long post.

Oh, and the most important thing - I have received a Platinum Membership as a gift from one of the members in the forum earlier today, and just because he/she stays anonymous, I don't know who the person is, but if you, my dear, is know reading this post, I want you to know that you definitely left me in a slight shock in the very morning, and you really made my day. Or maybe a week. Or a month. I hadn't expected anything like this EVER (I didn't even know you could actually give someone a Platinum Membership as a gift) so I'm extremely grateful, and I do appreciate it very much.

It must have been boring reading all this. Sorry again.
Enjoy the basketball championship, Victoria!!

And congrats on the Platinum Membership!! That was very sweet of someone!!

xx

What are your plans for tonight? As I said, I plan on just napping before work. I am off tomorrow, so I am looking forward to that. DH works tomorrow night, so it will be just me and the kids here, but I am hoping to maybe get caught up on some of these posts! I am quite behind! It doesn't take long, once you do start.

Well, I am off to try to read some, then head to bed. I will talk to you all tomorrow. Hope you all have a great rest of your evening. Thinking of you all! God Bless and always, keep smiling!
Enjoy your day off tomorrow!!

Nice!! What a great surprise!!

Hope you're doing well, friend!!

I hope everyone left the cake alone, they were standing over it while singing and camels drool a lot.....enough said.

Hope it stays problem free for awhile, vehicles can be so expensive.. Necessary, but still expensive.
