It's Over....Really??

Wow, this week is already over. What the hell? One minute I was complaining about it being Monday and then....bam....over...another week of my life left to the history books. I only had to work 3 days this week thanks to the continuing education clause in my license renewal, which is required every year. Wow, that last sentence was a grammatical nightmare....anywho....I drove to Murfreesboro on Wednesday morning in a Tennessee 'Snow Storm' had class until five, shopped at Target, bought a pair of custom running shoes at Fleet Feet and then submerged myself in a great bottle of wine from Argentina, a People magazine and American Idol. No kids, wine, mag, show, Embassy.....BRING IT! Good times, good times. I begin to look back on those two days with a twinge of disdain (only because I really didn't miss my kids too bad) but quickly realize I have to take advantage of times like this.

I am the run on sentence queen!

1. Up is seriously the only direction I can go from here.

2. They say there is a virus going around however, I am not familiar with said virus nor the people who are saying 'its' going around.

3. Coats and scarves, mittens and boots: garb I would like to don only two to three days per year.

4. Because of my profession people often request a nice back rub. Hello, why would I want to bring my work home with me.

5. I'm thinking about my future which I am sure does not include selling my house in a timely manner.

6. What is now will hopefully be will be....without all the disturbances.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to playing a little Green Day Rock Band with my son and compete with the PREMIER of a new will I ever compete, tomorrow my plans include getting the items together for Michael's science project and Sunday, I want to watch Michael acolyte at church, chill, and maybe try out my new kick ass running shoes!

Late, Late, Late

I believe being late is the story of my life. It all started almost 40 years ago when I decided to enter into the world almost 2 weeks late. (My poor mother) Apparently, that incident has set the tone for my entire life. That is the story I am sticking to anyway. Let's take this blog, for example. Late again, which I do realize is a serious personal problem. For some reason the fact that yesterday was Friday didn't register in my brain. I think I am going to blame this particular instance on the snowfall. I had to get out of the house and focus on getting to work safely while other people had the pleasure of lounging in the bed. :) So not fair!
At this point I am in pout mode in regards to all the snow. I am SICK of the white stuff people. I need warmth...I need to feel the warm sun on my skin...I need to don shorts and bikini tops as I dig in the mulch beds...I need my summer Fridays off!!!!

1. So many of us settle for whatever situation we are in instead of saying 'life is too short for us to allow tolerance and acceptance for certain things'

2. I have in my past and will continue in my future to keep my head up and a smile on my face at least 80% of the time even in hardship.

3. Those who are accepting of other people's quirks and differences can become more accepting of their own.

4. My future is waiting quietly.

5. Light is in both the genuine smile on the face of someone you care about and the incessant giggle of a child.

6. of all that is ordinary. (I am struggling with this one so I am leaving it blank for now. I cant seem to find anything that makes sense)

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I am looking forward to eating pizza and hanging out with my extended family, tomorrow my plans include bowling or skating with the kids with a late basketball game for Michael and Sunday, I want to get some little things done around the house because those little things add up to big things.

I Thought It Was Yesterday...

All day yesterday it felt like Friday which was a huge disappointment guessed was only Thursday. I haven't had that difficult of a week but trying to do my job when it has snowed 6 inches is very difficult. I was worried at first that I would have to use a few vacation days only to sit at home and look outside but luckily I was able to work. Vacation days should be used for VACATION....sun, beach, bikini, adult fruity get the point.
I am so glad today is Friday......

1. Right now I need a pedicure and an hour long massage.

2. German chocolate cake coffee is what's in my glass.

3. A copy of this letter will be forwarded to the FBI in the event of my disappearance.

4. Imbibing hot chocolate is best with a spoon.

5. The best movie I've seen lately is Pulp Fiction. Was in the mood for a little Quentin Tarantino.

6. There are numerous things that I like; but only a few that I love.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to spending a little time with my mom and being there for a distraught friend, tomorrow my plans include racquetball for me, basketball for Michael and Sunday, I want to spend a little time with the boys and maybe go bowling or something.

Discombobulated Friday

So far this day should be described as Freaky Friday. Is today the 13th? NOPE. Was there a full moon in our recent past or in the recent future? Not that I am aware of. However, this day has presented itself with a wide array of weird events. To start of the morning, I discover that school in Putnam county are closed today. Why? Your guess is as good as mine. The roads are virtually dry and there is nary a flake falling. A pre-emptive attack? Who knows....personally, I think it is rather silly to close a school for an impending snowfall instead of closing it for actual confirmation of said snow. If they keep this up, the kids will be going to school into July....wait...they start school in July which means they wouldn't get a summer break at all. That would be AWESOME! not really.
Secondly, I am sitting at a red light minding my own business. Suddenly, I am becoming a witness to a car accident which is unfolding right in front of me. A guy in a pick up truck made a left turn on green (no arrow) right in front of an oncoming vehicle. Well, that's just GREAT! Since I was the only one to witness it, I decided to do my duty and wait for the cop to finish so I could give a statement.
This has been my day so far and all of this has been before eight. I feel as if I should approach the rest of my day with trepidation....the signs are for the signs!!!

1. It's 2011; I am really wanting a good year. I want it, I deserve it and I really really need it.

2. I cannot begin to express how much I love fried dill pickles. Cock of the Walk, by Opryland, has the best pickles followed closely by Captain D's. I consider myself a pickle connoisseur of sorts!!

3. Thankfully I have my health and the health of my family. I know this sounds incredibly cliche but we are seriously blessed. No allergies...nothing.

4. You can make virtually any moment into the best thing in life.

5. I am so glad Christmas is over. Not a to be a bah humbug but I am glad to have my home back to normal and schedules back on track.

6. I love to bowl even though I supremely suck at it.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to a calm evening with the family and not having to cook (we have not had restaurant food in a week, so proud of the money saving and the effort), tomorrow my plans include teaching a friend to play racquetball, attending Michael's first basketball game and grilling a few racks of ribs for evening dinner (I have been Jonesing for some ribs), and Sunday, I want to relax, stay warm and catch up on some movie viewing. (I wonder if I am seriously capable of taking it easy for an entire day?)
