My age is showing...so excited about a new dishwasher!
And the fact that my dryer vents got cleaned out too! LOL! I don't even do the dishes and I'm stoked about it. It has a brushed stainless steel front and a very roomy interior. Showed the kids the basic functionality. It's my son's week to ... Read more
High school? That can't be right!!
Tonight was open house for our local high school. All of the 8th graders came to the high school to get familiar with the school and figure out what the different activities were. Why do I care? (I know better than to ask if you do! LOL!) Co... Read more
Odors, odors everywhere!
Today was another one of those "running around all day and get nothing accomplished" days. Work was crazy, probably because I had to leave early to take my son to the DDS. As soon as I get home from that, I need to make dinner and then gather ... Read more
BIG plans, I tell ya! BIG!!!!
And they are all in my head! That's it. Nowhere else!
I so planned to come home, eat the dinner tha... Read more
Slug, thy name is CartoonB!
Worked my tail off yesterday, got lots accomplished, stayed in range, great day!
Today, slept in, ate too much, read a little and ate some more. Yep, that's it! Oh, wait. Played catch with DD twice. Her homework for softball was to play... Read more
Yay! It's done! And dang it looks good!
For the last seven years, we've had an entertainments center (broken and cheap) in our bedroom. Next to it was a vanity that I got for Christmas about 25 - 28 years ago. (Love that vanity!) About a week (maybe two) ago, DH brought home a very ... Read more
Son learned a lesson and I'm not the one who learned him!
First, a little background. Ten years ago, my DH fell from a ladder while at work and landed (all of his weight) on one leg. His ankle was shattered (the 3-D xr-ray was flipping awesome!). Anyway, for about two years, he was not able to help ... Read more
If your spouse wanted to spend some time...
doing something on their own, what would you say? And by spouse, I mean spouse (obviously!) or boyfriend/girlfriend, significant other or even roommate. Someone important in your life who wants to do something that you probably don't like. Sa... Read more
Spark Wheel Theory Update
It is well established that I am a nerd/geek/whatever. A couple of weeks ago I blogged about a couple of theories I had on the Spark Wheel. One was that over time, your average will be three. The second was that the more points you got BEFORE... Read more
Selfish or just dig-dillyishly optimistic-arino?
Today, I got up and headed to work, same as any other work day. Except that I knew my son didn't feel good and would be staying home from school. I called the school from work to let them know he wouldn't be in and to arrange homework (he LOVE... Read more
The best laid plans...
can go to heck in a hand basket in the blink of an eye! (Do you think I get any more sayings in one sentence?)
I packed my breakfast, lunch and snack for work today and decided that I would do my workout after a dinner of chili and cornbre... Read more
No, not price tags for the skin, but it seems like they should be good for something like that. You have a skin tag on your arm, that means you are eating too much sugar. But, nope! Apparently, they are genetic. At least that's what my mom t... Read more
I tried, but didn't quite do it.
I had quite the ambitious to-do list for today. Grocery shopping, laundry, gym/30day Shred, library, make chocolates, clean myself up for bunco and bunco. Those are the things I did get done. I missed cleaning off the vanity and broken entert... Read more
I finally get to watch Week 7 of BL!!
I don't watch a lot of TV. Okay, let me rephrase that. I don't choose what is on the TV very often. The TV is, in fact, hardly ever off in my house (DH thing, maybe the topic of another blog on another day!). Even though the TV is on, i rare... Read more
New sign at work
I work at a mid-size semiconductor company and have for almost 17 years. (Dang! That's a really long time!!!) Earlier this week, there was a new sign by the door where everyone badges in (yes, Big Brother is watching!). It said something to t... Read more
