Top Three Pet Peeves

1. Hearing someone chew, snap gum, chomp ice, etc.
2. People who cut in line
3. People who let their kids eat and drink during church. Seriously, it's a hour, they can make it. And we wonder why we have a generation of overweight kids. We teach them to eat for

However, comment problems on blogger may soon crack the my top 3...

I can't drive 55

or 65, or 45, or anything within 5 miles of the posted speed limit.

Nothing like a newly permitted driver to make you realize how little you really remember about the rules of the road.

Maybe we should get one of these magnets now that Lolly's driving.

One Week

This time next week I'll be on way home. (Mister thinks it strange that as a middle aged woman (gasp) I still refer to my parents place at home.)

I am looking forward too many things while I am on vacation...an 11 hr road trip with Lolly, a wedding, a 4th of July baseball game, a large does of extended family time...

But most of all, I am looking forward to unplugging from work. I am there. You know, that place where the little things that you normally brush off are now enough to drive you crazy. Ya, that place. I am living in it till the end of business next Thursday. I've told my co-workers if you hear me sobbing in my cube, just ignore it. But, I am gonna be strong. I think everyone is ready for a vacation and I am worried if I start to cry it will set off a chain reaction. You know the kind, like when one baby starts to cry and then every baby in the vicinity joins in... one week...

Meet the Silver Lady

Seems when the dealership needs to move some vehicles they actually can sell a car for what they once said was not possible.

I am lovin her. She's loaded with all the bells and whistles and lots of safety features. All very nice for someone stuck in traffic 2 hours a day Monday thru Friday.

Top Three Tuesday

Top Three Ways to Relieve Stress:

1. Run
2. Watch movies
3. Read

At first I really thought eating should be on the list but when I thought harder I realized that eating is really a stress enhancer. Eat to relieve stress, then stress about what you just ate and how you're going to lose 10lbs. Vicious cycle.

How do you relieve stress?

In Need of Rehab

I've fallen off the wagon. I am puffy and cranky and craving sugar. I tell you it's like liquid crack to me.

Tomorrow - cold turkey. No diet pop and no sugar, minus the two Newman O's I'll allow myself. (one step at a time)

I should have been a teacher

Not because I love children or want to contribute to the betterment of the world (all of which I do) but because the idea of having the summer off sounds so stinkin awesome.

Momentary Lapse of Sanity

This weekend I thought I wanted to buy a new car. One with everything. One to drive until the wheels fall off.

I started with Honda CRVs but just didn't feel it. If I am going to make a long term committment I have to feel the love. So I moved on to Toyota RAV4s. Found one with all the bells and whistles. Loved it, made my skip a beat.

But alas, 2 dealerships, 2 salesman, 2 managers, and no RAV4 for me. I am a bottom line kind of girl. If you can't meet the price I want to pay there's no amount explaination, sales techniques, etc that are going to work. And I have no problem cutting you off, thanking for your time and getting back to livin life and rollin around town in my used based out Rolla.

Go Big or Go Home

I received a small promotion yesterday at work. I am very happy but feel a little funny about it in that it was long in coming. (Something I should have probably asked for coming in the door, but while I can negotiate for others, I am not that good at for myself.) Yesterday when I was living my boss's office he asked how I'd like to handle the announcement because he'd like to let the rest of the team know. My reply was can we keep it on the down low.

A little hard to keep it on the down low when Mister sent these flowers. And in true Mister style the flowers came with a box of candy, a teddy bear and a Congratulations balloon. I love that man!

How the heck I am getting these out the building without any questions?
