Throwing Little Thought Pebbles at Your Windshield Since 1996

Month: February, 2002

Well, it’s quite a bit colder out there than it looks. I’m not going to let that scare me off though. As soon as I’m doing paying bills (oh the joy of it!) I’m going out for some R & R. Or maybe just some R. I don’t want to go crazy.

Just online for a few minutes before I go out and face the world. It’s sunny and bright and I can hear airplanes flying all over the place around here. To me those kinds of days, where it’s just constant planes, always reminds me of summer, and having the windows open.

Spent the day with my parents. Always a joy. Well, I wasn’t with them the WHOLE day, but a good part of it. They are still computer desk shopping, and I think it’s GREAT fun to browse furniture stores. The one I told my mom she HAS to buy costs $1200, and it looks like a baker’s rack so it won’t look all desky in her living room. $1200 for a desk! And as my friend said “for 1200, I want everything HIDDEN.

Here is a picture of the item. It really is wonderful. If I wasn’t so busy trying to pay the mortgage, I’d go for it.

oops. I forgot the lawyer’s office and the Chamber of Commerce. Okay, I’ll do that tomorrow morning. Tomorrow isn’t a big full day like today. But of course, I have that Danny Bonaduce book to read now.

I think I got most of the to-do list done. Went to the post office and the library, had lunch with my friends and sent out an email (late) that I said I’d send out today. I felt busy.

The library thing was interesting. It’s school vacation week and I guess they had a magician doing some program for young kids (preschool age, maybe up to 2nd grade.) I got there as ALL the kids were leaving with the parents, and the kids all had magic wands. I hope nobody cast any spells on me.

Oh man, I was looking at the statistics for this page for yesterday, and I noticed that four hits were from one link…and that happens a lot except this made me REALLY NERVOUS. See, the link was to www.amihotornot.com.au/Top10/show_rating_pic.asp?ID=57507 and all I could imagine is that someone took a webcam shot of mine and posted it up there to be mean or something. And then I looked at the URL again and realized there is no way I’m in the top 10 at amihotornot. I mean, I like myself, but I am grounded in reality. So anyway, I’m not turning that into a link…if you want to see what a top 10 female at that site looks like, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed, but I’m not going to help you get there faster. So I still don’t know why it’s showing up four times in my log, unless the chick in the picture is a fan of the blog. That would be fine and dandy, and then I wouldn’t be nervous any more! Hello top 10 girl! You look really lovely in your bra…

I’ve got a whole full to-do list for tomorrow. I need to run to the post office, the library and my lawyer’s office. I am meeting some online pals for lunch, and then I should drop by the Chamber of Commerce to get some information about the benefits of joining (specifically group insurance rates.)

Does that sound like a lot? Well it’s everything I’ve needed to do for the past couple of days, but with Junior hanging out at home with a throat infection, I’ve had a hard time getting any work done. Well, it would have been a little easier if I hadn’t spent 4.5 hours at prompt care with him on Tuesday. He’s been on antibiotics for 24 hours so he can go back to daycare tomorrow. Whew!

I’m watching Rugrats (what else is new) and it’s an early episode. It might be the first – I think it’s the first one with Angelica because Didi actually explains who Angelica is to Phil and Lil’s mom Betty. And their dad, Howard, has like a TON of lines. I’m pretty sure this is the most I’ve ever heard him talk in an episode. And Betty is pretty subdued. I love watching how the characters have changed on shows, even cartoons.

Oh, and in other news? He’s not that crazy about the Lite-Brite. Well, he is, but he can’t do the pictures that came with it because he’s not really at the age where he call follow the letter guides. From the Mom point of view, I can’t figure out what some of these colors are…is that red or something else?

The manicotti was GREAAAAAAAT. And I learned what a serving is. I made enough for each of us to have 3, but man, after 2, I was done. So now I have some in the freezer and I feel like Helen Homemaker! I’m psyched that at some point I have a really cool meal ready to go, all I need to do is bake it up!
