Walking down the hall at work today, I overheard a snippet of a conversation. Two ladies were talking about their weekend and one of them mentioned going to the pancake house to eat.
Instantly, I wanted a stack of golden pancakes, covered with syrup, maybe a little whipped cream and some fruit to top it off. Not that strange, right?
Except I don't like pancakes. I'm not a bread/carb person anyway and pancakes fall into that category for me. The only way I can eat them is to pour so much syrup on them all I can taste is the syrup. THEN, I'm sick to my stomach, literally, because I ate too much sugar.
So why did I want pancakes? Maybe I just wanted the camaraderie that the statement implied? Even now, I'm craving pancakes! What the heck!
Anyway, I guess that's what I get for eavesdropping! LOL!

I was listening to a podcast today and the guy who voices SpongeBob Squarepants was a guest. He played what he said was the most popular song from that cartoon. The name of the song was "It's The Best Day Ever" and I found myself really listening.
The longer I listened and the more I heard, the happier I got. Weird, huh? But, if you could actually capture that feeling and keep it (keeping it is the hard part), every day really could be the best day ever. I'm really going to have to try to keep that feeling around.
Link to the song:
Lyrics (remember to sing in your best SpongeBob Squarepants voice!)
SpongeBob SquarePants Lyrics
The best day ever Lyrics
This song is from the following Spongebob cd:
Mr. Sun came up and he smiled at me
Said "it's gonna be a good one, just wait and see"
Jumped out of bed, and I ran outside
Feeling so ecstatic, satisfied.
It's the best day ever (best day ever)
It's the best day ever (best day ever)
I'm so busy, got nothing to do
Spent the last 2 hours just tying my shoe
Every flower, every grain of sand
Is reaching out out to shake my hand
Sometimes the little things start closing in on me
When I'm feeling down, I wanna lose that frown
I stick my head out the window and look around
Those crowds don't scare me, they can't disguise
Its magic that's happening right before my eyes
Soon Mr. Moon will be shining bright
So the best day ever can last all night
Yeah, the best day ever's gonna last all night, now.

is a 2011 Dodge Nitro Heat with a V-6 engine, heated leather seats, a sun roof (or moon roof?), and fancy, schmancy sound system. I've been saying that I'm getting a new vehicle for about five years now and I finally did!
This particular vehicle has enough power to back up my attitude. So...if I go missing from Spark for a little while, please realize that I probably need bail money.
Here is the one picture I've taken. You may now oooh and ahhh over my new wheels. LOL!

My kids are visiting their grandparents for one week. And let me tell ya...it is weird. No mid-afternoon texts asking me what to eat for breakfast. No requests to go buy sno-cones and candy. No chores left undone. Nobody taking my stuff and moving it to who knows where. No new messes when I get home.
No one fixing my dinner before I get home. Nobody saying hi mom when I walk in from work. No one to take out the trash on trash day. No one to do all those things I haven't had to do in years! LOL!
So...I had big plans when I found out that the kids would be gone for a week.
Clean their bathroom...I mean really clean it!
Clean out the cupboard below the sink.
Dance around nekkid!
Now (at least, right this minute) I don't feel like doing any of that! I wanna sit on my butt and read. I wanna sleep in. I wanna have no responsibilities for at least one full day! I'm not gonna get any of those. So maybe I should be productive? Or maybe not...

I have had my heart rate monitor (HRM) for about a year now. Maybe longer. I've used it almost every time I've worked out since I got it. In other words, it is not new.
So imagine my surprise when I heard it beep on Saturday.
I knew that I would be mowing and trimming our yard on Saturday. With our wet spring and busy lives, the lawn hasn't been mowed as consistently as it should. And, when it was mowed, the grass wasn't always bagged (read - not bagged at all!). That combination meant a long mowing session was in my future. Just for giggles (yes, I'm easily entertained) I decided to compare the calorie burn on my HRM with what SP gave me.
Since I wear gloves to trim and mow, I turned on my HRM while I was still in the garage, before staring any machinery. And it beeped! Then...throughout my mowing escapade, when I stopped to empty the bag, I would hear it beep again! Apparently, it is supposed to beep. I just never heard it before! I've always had music going before.
