so the post I thought I wrote on Friday was actually written on Saturday morning -- that's what happens when you stay up too late. so far let's check on how I've done in my list yesterday...

+ haven't thought about Monday at all - or how soon it will get here
+ Went to see Taken -- it was really good
+ walked 4 miles

Today I am thankful for good friends and a heating blanket. It's not so cold here, but it sure is nice to be all warm. and friends are always wonderful.

facebook

More and more people it seems are joining facebook. I just found several friends from high school and one of my best friends too. The only problem is they don't seem to want to communicate - at least not with me. Also, they don't put pictures up. I guess they worry about losing their identities and whatnot. I would really love to see some pics but I guess people are more private than me or more paranoid. Of course, I wish my pictures looked better - but I can't worry too much about that.

I need three day weekends every week. Saturday is my day to crash and then it takes me a couple of days to recuperate and start doing the things I need to do - cleaning laundry, etc. There's one in February but I need one NOW!! I may take a day off soon, just to have one of them.

pre inauguration post

this has absolutely nothing to do with the inauguration, except that tomorrow is inauguration day ..

I realize I haven't been posting much lately, but that's because I don't want the tone of what I write to be too depressing. I'm just feeling a little overwhelmed.

okay, well maybe I'll touch on tomorrow -- I hope that all the hype is a foreshadowing of good things to come. I'm tired of all the crap we hear and maybe there will be more positive things reported on --

I'm also trying to avoid being political. I hear enough of that.

Grandma's cataract surgery is on Wednesday. We'll find out the time tomorrow and then I'll be able to make plans for work.

That stresses me out too. So, I'll stop now ...

oh, I still haven't come up with my 52 or even my dozen...

$16K

This is what $16,000 of damage looks like.
I backed into this LOTUS in the garage at work -- damage to my car was under $50.

sharing

sometimes things are just too hard to share, with anyone.

Happy New Year!

Finally getting a little time to post -- just got home last night. Have tons of cleaning to do - laundry (don't know how I could have it when I did laundry all the while on vacation).

Katie has a list of 52 things she wants to do this year .. sounds like a good idea, similar to the bucket list. I'm going to see if I can come up with 52 things too! Thanks Katie!!
