Why do compliments come on days...
when you've eaten like a horse?
Let me preface this "story" with letting you all know that this week has been really long. My boss irritates me, my husband took four days to wash the dishes (another story for another day), I didn't get e... Read more
Results of the game
Okay, so it was a blast. We did lose, but only by 2 runs. I played catcher (as usual) and had a blast heckling the other team. They laughed too, so I think they had fun too. One guy came up... Read more
I might be getting a new boss!!!
So, with the new position being filled by "John" (see earlier blog), there is a hole in one of the two groups that works together. The powers-that-be have decided to take this opportunity to do a full re-org. I am sooooo hoping that I get a ne... Read more
The new puppy has the worst timing!!!
As I've mentioned before, DH and I take the dogs for a walk every night. The boxer is a puppy and has TONS of energy. If she doesn't get her walk, she's just like a little kid on sugar. Read more
OK, so really?
There is some "reorganization" going on at my work. One of the bigger changes (at least recently) is moving a packaging group back into Assembly (my department). They announced one of the new "heads" of the group last week and said they would ... Read more
I had a really great blog about bowling with my kids. When I hit Post, I got an error and it cleared my blog! So, believe me when I say it was the best blog EVER! It was funny, touching and even pulled a tear from the most hardened heart. Bu... Read more
Daughter's reaction to last blog
So...being the sweet, loving mother that I am, I had my daughter read just the title of my last blog. She got that expression on her face that said "I can't believe this is MY mother. I am so embarrassed and I'm going to kick her butt...in my ... Read more
My daughter so totally wants to be me!!
Or so I tell her often. She doesn't agree with me, but she is pretty darn happy with me right now. She's at the water park tonight with her friend for the friend's birthday. This morning, we went out to buy a birthday present. We also stoppe... Read more
Harry Potter or G.A. McKevett?
Tomorrow night, daughter is going to a water park with her best friend for a birthday party. DH has mentioned taking son to the "Hottest Movie of the Summer"! (Which, I guess, is Harry Potter.) I have not officially been invited to join the b... Read more
Crikey! What a day!
So...today started out normally. Meeting at 8:30. Ten minutes into it, I get a page to see the e-mail and mtg notice for 9:00. Okay, fine. Leave 1st mtg, read e-mail, go to 2nd mtg. That one lasts a little over an hour and (of course) I get... Read more
Did you catch a baseball with your eyes or...
are you really tired?
Yep, someone asked me that question today. And, after looking in the mirror,... Read more
How do you know when the dog is done walking?
When she lays down in the shade of a parked car.
We took the puppies for a walk before softball practice today since it would be late and dark by the time I would be home. So, son and I troop out with Scooby and Abby at 6:30. I guess I ... Read more
That was me for the first half of the day. It could have started with being woken up by barking dogs (yeah, my own!) earlier than I wanted. Could be that my DH was stressing about $$$ this week and was stressing the need to spend as little as ... Read more
I decided that it was time to get my oil changed. I knew that it was past time, but I didn't realize how much past time it was! As daughter and I were driving to the nearest Jiffy Lube, I noticed that my sticker was still up from the last time... Read more
How do you know when it's time...
To buy new clothes? Maybe when you don't need to unfasten your britches to take them off? Or how about when you almost lose said britches when running across the street? Yeah, they were good hints for me too! LOL! I really like these shorts... Read more
