Sit back and enjoy the ride.

Well, that was windy...

Ok, so Hurricane Ike was no fun at all. He both ruined my vacation and my evacuation. I lost the last couple days of vacation due having to leave. Then I spent the first couple days of my evacuation getting drunk on red wine, thinking about the ten feet of water that was in my house.

While I am still on the North 40 (one good thing about evacuating) , a good friend of ours was able to make it to our house and confirm that it is still there and NOT filled with water. I guess I drank all that wine for nothing...

Because the Internet is not the fastest here, don't count on many post until I can return back to normal life.

Off to feed the gators...

Friday's Five Things

Ok- I know I said that I was going on vacation today, but that doesn't start until after 5 p.m. Anywho, I'm having a pretty good day so far (at 8:43 a.m. there hasn't been much time for things to go terribly wrong), and I thought I would jot down my current "Five Things to be Thankful For"

1. In a few short hours I get to see Mom, Layla, Sabe, Romey, Hanna, Ryan, and Lady.

2. I found my dream job... now if they would only hire me...

3. SPF 70

4. OPI "i'm not really a waitress" nail polish

5. Forks, because really, they make eating so much easier

That's all bitches. Have a great week, a great week next week and I'll be back around the 15th... because I know that so many loyal readers will miss me ;)

Inspirational crap to get you through the week

I am going on a much needed vacation tomorrow. In my absence, please enjoy this lovely little ditty:

This was written by Regina Brett of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland, Ohio
'To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It's the most-requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolls over to 90 in August, so here goes:'
1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
4. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first pay check.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special. Use the good living room.
22. Over-prepare then, go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five years time, will this matter?'
27. Always choose life.
28. Forgive everyone, everything.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time, time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.
35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
36. Growing old beats the alternative of dying young.
37. Your children get only one childhood. Make it memorable.
38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
42. The best is yet to come.
43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
44. Yield.
45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.

Not so "wordless" Wednesday

Ok, I really enjoy the whole "wordless Wednesday" thing. The pictures, the clown noses, all very nice.

However, today I'm a little aggravated. In an effort not to drive Husband crazy with my craziness, I'm attempting to un-load my Big Book of Grievances here.

Chapter One: Things that piss me off more than they should.

*People who don't give you a courtesy wave when you let them in front of you in traffic

*Wal-Mart cashiers who feel the need to comment on every item you purchase (she picked up a dog toy and said, "How cute. Did you get that here?... no dumbass, I picked it up at Target, but decided to pay for it here...

*Slow people at the salad barn. HOLY CRAP IT'S NOT A DECORATING CONTEST!!!

*People who make promises they can't possibly keep

*People who ask, "What on earth did you do to your hair?"- Ouiser-Boudreax-style. Ok, so it was blonde and now it's brown... GET OVER IT!

*People who slow down to look at a wreck on the other side of the freeway. THAT'S HOW ACCIDENTS HAPPEN YOU MORRON!!!

Whew, I feel better.

Fun (Tuesday) Monday

Sorry, gang. Due to sheltering Hurricane Gustav evacuees, I'm not able to play Fun Monday this week.

Hope you are all safe from wind and rain.
