Mini Vacation

I'm taking one. Yeah. Going to visit XXXX - oh yeah.

This week is turning out to be fabulous. The Little People spent Wednesday with my Aunt, came home yesterday mid morning. This morning my sister took the Little People until Monday. I am going to visit XXXX Sunday afternoon until Tuesday evening. I will be kidless until Wednesday morning. Wow. This is going to be a nice break. I'm sure I'll come back refreshed and in a positive mind frame.

I love the whole mom thing. I need a break from time to time though.

Ahhh time alone. Bubble baths, manicure, pedicure, reading a book, watching a grown up movie, talking over dinner...

I know I'll be missing the Little People by Tuesday, but I'm going to enjoy my time off as much as I can.

Right now I'm going to go do one of my yoga tapes without being interrupted to play referee to a fight, dress a Barbie or have the little people crawl on me or over me while trying to hold a pose.

Running Through Fields Of Flowers

That's what I've been doing since the Little People are with my Aunt who graciously offered to take both of them for a visit. Ahhh running through fields of flowers.

Thing that really sucks is that I woke just before 6 am this morning and could not go back to sleep. I COULD still be sleeping but NOOOOOOOOOO, I'm awake. Damn.

I'm ready for the Little People to be back now. Just waiting for my Aunt to call and let me know when she'll be bringing them home.

Until then... I'll continue Running Trough Fields Of Flowers.

(*Running Trough Fields Of Flowers = Doing massive quantities of laundry and sorting through old clothes and listening to music loudly)

Early Senility

I fucking hate it when I come to the computer to look something up and by the time I get to the computer I can't remember what the hell I wanted/needed to know.

Sheesh. I'm too easily distracted... Ohhh! Shiny!

Just A Flat

I am back on line! And the whole modem problem was stupid. Just an unplugged cable. Doh!
End Of The Road

I've hit a dead end on the Information Super Highway. (eyes rolling up in head) My freaking modem is dead. I'll only be on sporadically as my only other access to the internet is in K's room on his slow ass computer using the dial up - meaning a slow slow connection that's tieing up my phone line. *sigh* I'll live. I guess. Sucks though. I'm such an internet addict. I never watch television though, this is my entertainment. God, I'm going to be in Disney Hell today... I won't have anything to distract me from the endless onslaught of Disney videos the little people watch. Ugh. Someone shoot me.

Moronic Musings

K works with idiots. Truly. Every week he never fails to astound me with some tale proving beyond a doubt how idiot they are.

Today, he showed his supervisor the picture of Angry Albino Sock Monkey! She said "Oh she could make money off those. Make them with happy faces." Huh? Happy faces for the ANGRY Albino Sock Monkey? She just doesn't fucking get it.
The Word of the Day for Jun 14 is:
emblazon \im-BLAY-zun\ verb

*1 a : to inscribe or adorn with or as if with heraldic bearings or devices b : to inscribe (as heraldic bearings) on a surface
2 : celebrate, extol

The company I used to work for was quite proud of their logo, it was emblazoned on everything from stationary, to shirts and even boxes!

Little Changes

I made a few changes to the template, mostly just some pictures on the side and changes to the Cool Reading list - I deleted the blogs who have become boring and added some new ones. I made the photos smaller on the side - I figured people would appreciate that - I have enough pictures of me on the side to prove to people how incredibly VAIN I truly am, no need to force ya'll to look at them quite so large. I also added a few others, most importantly AASM at the top - he's far to cool to have his picture off in archives and some art work of mine (because I'm proud of it).

Weekend was boring. Makes me yawn just thinking about it. I worked. I came home. I went to work. I came home. Woohoo.

This made me giggle, Super Girl loves AASM, her and Cabbage Patch have been playing with him all morning, wrapping him up like a baby. HAHAHAHA! I'd hate to have that handed to me after giving birth!

Oh Pete - You will get an AASM. I have a very demented idea for a special one for you. (Hope your wife doesn't want to shoot me after you get it.) I'll let you know when to start watching the mail for him. I wish I had the EVIL Teddy Ruxpin to sit next to my Freddy Kruger doll.
