365 Days of Pictures Which Make Me Smile #6

January 6th, 2016 at 04:49 pm

This isn't my picture, but a picture of a project/Christmas gift that someone (Pep) on the YNAB forums made for his mom for Christmas.

Here is a link to his journal: http://forum.youneedabudget.com/discussion/42718/pep-pep-hooray#latest (You do have to be logged in to view journals.)

I wanted to share this picture today for two reasons: 1. It shows how much thought and love can go into a homemade gift. and 2. It makes me smile! Smile

Today wasn't the best at work. I found out that I made a foolish mistake on Tuesday - as in got the order book for one agency when the order was actually for a different one. The two agencies names had one letter different. The passes got delivered to the wrong agency ... so the grumpy guy who does the deliveries with whom I finally seemed to be making *some* progress with ... will have to go get the wrongly delivered passes and take them to the correct place. Ugh.

I think part of why I made that mistake is because I haven't been sleeping well the last few nights. I've been taking melatonin for a few weeks, and at first thought that it was helping ... but now am not so sure.

I really hope to get a decent nights sleep tonight because I kind of feel like I'm running on fumes. And that + coming up on that "time" makes for one very cranky Laura.

I did not stop for Coke and Chocolate. Which is definitely what I would have done before on a day like this.

    I'm sorry you haven't been sleeping well lately. I tried melatonin once before and didn't think it worked, but among my mother's things was a bottle of melatonin so I figured I might as well, and it seemed to help. was wondering if maybe it seemed to be a high dosage at 3 mg. What dose are you taking?

    Thanks PS. I am taking 3mg of it.

    Cute gift! One letter different -- could happen to anyone, and I say that as a former professional proofreader.

    PS: change that "ugh" to "Oh, well." Big Grin

  5. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    LOL Ceejay. Smile You're right - I need to change the Ugh! to Oh Well! Thanks for reminding me. Smile

    There is only one letter that's different between the names of two agencies? Believe, they have to be dealing with mistakes like this CONSTANTLY! Someone needs to change their name!

  10. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    CB - The full names of the agencies are different, but their Acronyms are only one letter apart. We have the agencies filed by acronyms. CAN and CAP - one is about 1/2 mile from us, and the other is about 15 miles. Guess which one I sent the poor guy to?
