Baby it's cold outside!

It's 1° outside.. I have no motivation to want to go outside in that.

What I wanted to say yesterday.... and didn't.... 'I don't wanna lose my job because you borrowed money from the cash drawer for a beer run.'

When I got home last night, there was an odd folded up piece of paper on the floor by the kitchen counter. I thought, 'what have the cats been into now?' Upon investigation, the yellowed, brittle, aged piece of paper was a Motel 6 receipt from May of 2003. I've only lived here since August of 2006. No idea where the cats scraped this treasure from. No idea who Ramiros Chavez is. Strange!

i'm not ready for monday yet...

man, i'd like to crawl back under the covers and catnap awhile longer... i'm just not ready for the weekend to be over yet.... so starts another week.

it's not a good thing when i've still got stress living in my neck and shoulders and head and arm on one side to the point i've got numb spots and i haven't even started the work week.

so how's everyone else on monday? :)

boo! *blinks*

let's see.. where to begin... where to begin....

life's been busy... the kids have started a fresh semester in college... lauren's been through her first year away from home... she seems to be doing fine... cody's found a nice girl.. lauren says, 'i hope she's the one'... this alone tells me alot... :) lauren's found her first love.. i'm not sure he's 'the one'.. but it's first love, so it's powerful.. :)

my job has been so stressful and so demanding lately... we had a consultant in our office for 7 weeks straight... 'nuff said.. i hope i never have to go through anything like that again... here's the kicker... i had to fit a move in those 14 hour work days the first week into the consultant's stay... i'm in dire need of a break and i don't see it happening anytime soon.

just peekin' in.. i'll try to be around more often.... :) man! i feel totally out of the loop here.

anyone remember spirograph?

when i was a kid i spent hours playing with a spirograph...i'd pour through the design book and pick a design i wanted to make and find the right plastic ring and pin it down to the paper and pick just the right little sawtoothed wheel to lock into the matching sawteeth on the ring and pick my pen color and place it "just so" into the correct hole that would make the design i chose.. and around and around and around i'd draw...spirograph was an endless source of fun for me as a child.

i have also always had a lifelong fascination with kaleidoscopes...there's a little bit of magic inside them and i never tire of watching the beautiful and colorful designs they make.

this cool link appeals to both my love of the spirograph and kaleidoscopes... take a look and see what you think
