Friends, I will be extremely busy until after Thanksgiving! I pray you & your family eat way too much turkey, drink too much wine, and laugh until your sides hurt! What are you thankful for this year?

Happy Thanksgiving!

At the age of 13, my Parents "allow" me to start shaving. I thought I was so grown...after all, I was old enough to shave & a new teenager. I knew everything about everything. After 20 years (oh my--20 years have really passed--I'm shocked--give me a minute to absorb this thought--20 years!---Okay, I think I'm recovering a little..20 yrs!)...Now, what's my point again...oh yeah....After 20 years of shaving, I hate it. Since I am Single, I shave once a week on Saturday. I'm such a routine person. I realized last night I have not shaved my legs in about 3.5 weeks. I am totally disgusted with myself. I could barely sleep with myself last night!

How old were you when you first started shaving? What's the longest you went without shaving?

Moment of Insanity

Yesterday, I worked 10.5 hours. I had an very productive, long day. When I got home, I had mental mush...absolutely no energy. At 9pm, I get this crazy thought.."I should straight & organize my closet and my dresser drawers. I have 2 drawers I have not opened since the last time I purged my clothes. I finally finish with organizing everything I wanted at about 10pm. I have a bag of very old tshirts I will throw away. It feels good when I get rid of stuff. I even found 2 pair of pants I fought I had. I put them away b/c I need to have them tailored. I guess I will be going to the tailor on Saturday!
I hope I can go home tonight just to relax. Knowing myself, I will come up with another chore I must do!

Moment of Silence

My favorite day of the week is Sunday. I love going to church to worship God, fellowship with friends, and pray. My "old" Church (I am still looking for a "new" church) has an incredible Pastor, named Shannon. Shannon prays almost every Sunday. Right before Shannon begins her beautiful Prayer, she calls for a Moment of Silence within the church. During the Moment of Silence, I find rest, comfort & peace within the Lord. It's one of the times I delight in the Lord while resting at his feet. The Moment of Silence does not last very long. I believe if it did most of the congregation would fall asleep.
I keep thinking about how great & awesome this Moment really is. It's amazing how this 4 to 6 minutes on Sunday morning is one of my highlights of the week. Also, I keep thinking God wants more alone time with me. He wants me to have many Moments where I find rest at his feet. Life is complicated, busy, and demanding. Where do I usually find peace? WITHIN THE LORD! God is calling me to spend more time with him, in his his his love.
Karla and I talked this week about us being accountability partners in Christ together. Karla, I am up for challenge. Let's begin today!

Toilet Seat 101

Universities should offer Toilet Seat Replacement 101. I'm such a girl when it comes to home repairs. I usually rely on a man to fix the problem, but this time I wanted to do it. Honestly, I was appalled to even ask a friend to replace the toilet seat! Next time, I will pick up the phone to call Rent-a-Husband! During my lunch on Friday, I went to buy a new toilet seat. After work I dodged the incredible traffic to get home in enough time to replace the broken toilet seat, before my Friends came over for dinner. How embarrassing would it have been for me to open the door with a toilet seat in hand? VERY EMBARRASSING! It only took 45 minutes to get the old seat off! I put the new seat on and to my surprise I purchased the WRONG size seat! I drove to Lowe's & purchased a $27 toilet seat. When I finally got home, it only took 20 minutes to attach the new seat.

Ladies, The Moral of the Story: ALWAYS get a man to do the little projects in the house b/c they do turn into big projects. If you have a big project, CALL someone!!!

Too Busy for my Own Good.

I planned on having a relaxing weekend. Apparently, the world (aka Friends) had a different plan. I realized on the way to work this morning I have plans tonight, Saturday, and Sunday. Tonight, I am grilling out tonight for some neighbors.....I'm pretty sure with a bottle or two of wine I will have a good time, but I simply want to be alone tonight. Stop Worrying, I'm not depressed....I just want alone time. Before everyone comes over tonight, I need to put on a new toilet seat and un-clog my bathroom sick. I have never replaced a toilet seat...and never used draino. It will either be easy or completely embarrassing if my neighbors have to go home to use the potty!
Saturday, I am going to the dog park with some friends. It should be big Fun with my psycho-Dog, Abby, who at times thinks she's a big dog in her 12 lb little body....or she's afraid of all the other dogs and wraps her leash around my legs. Saturday afternoon, I am cleaning out my dresser. I do live a boring life! I should be going on a date with a Very Handsome Man (VHM)instead of cleaning my dresser out! Where does one go to find a VHM?
Sunday, my Sorority is hosting our Annual Thanksgiving party. I'm bringing vegetable dressing. It's my first time making the toilet seat should be easy & good...or I will definitely have everyone using their own potty.

Wish me Luck!!!

Toothless Wonder & The Remote Control Idiot

Tuesday morning at 11:30am I had a date with my Dr. Sexy, my Dentist. Dr. Sexy planned to remove a wisdom tooth, I planned to get high from the incredible "laughing" gas and the prescription pain pills he would give me after the appointment.
Friends, You should be so proud of me.....I made the dental appointment a month ago, and I did not cancel it. Heck, I'm proud of myself! Normally, I would have cancelled the appointment 2 or 3 times before I had enough guts to actually step into Dr. Sexy's office.
The weird part about the appointment was I was only in the dental chair for 25 minutes, and Dr. Sexy was only in my mouth for about 10 minutes. It only took him 10 minutes to pull my tooth. The horrific part of the of the whole experience is I heard the tooth being ripped from my mouth....10 minutes of hearing the tooth being pulled completely out of my head was about all I can take...I was totally grossed out!
I had a brilliant idea to schedule an appointment with the cable company Tuesday afternoon to receive a new cable box for my bedroom. When I made the cable appointment, I was totally irrational. I thought it would be a great idea to schedule my date with Dr. Sexy and the Cable man on the same day. Boy, I was wrong! The cable man came when my mouth was still numb and the pain meds were finally starting to work. Poor Fellow, he did not know what hit him. He changed out the cable box, asked if I knew how to program the remote control to the TV. I told him No, he then proceeds to explain it to me....In all my Medicated Glory, I told him to please program the stupid remote because I am a Remote Control Idiot. Enough Said! As the cable man was walking out, he asked if I was okay....Was I okay? Are you kidding me? I told him Dr. Sexy, my Dentist ripped my tooth out of mouth...and I was NOT okay. Yep, I freaked the Poor Fellow out!

The Shoe & Wall WON.

Friday evening, Deb and I had dinner plans. We planned for me to go to Deb's house to let her dog, Tiffany, outside before we went to dinner. While at Deb's house, I tripped and fell on one of Deb's shoes. I fell hard..real hard! I sprained my right ankle! Fun stuff!!!! Hurts bad, real bad.

Today, while I was changing my bed sheets. My right hand hit the wall hard..real hard. The wall took a huge chunk out of my finger. When I wash my hands (10 thousands a day), it burns!!!

The Shoe & Wall WON. I pray I will make it through the weekend without another accident!

One of those days.

Have you ever had one of those days where you should have stayed in bed? Yesterday was one of those days. At the office, my computer died at 3pm on Tuesday afternoon. I did not get a "new" computer until 2pm yesterday. Did the "new" computer have all the software I needed to actually "start" my day? NO! When did I finally get everything I need? 3:30pm. I work for a company who's a reseller...So, each last day of the month, I work late. I tried using another computer yesterday morning, but the computer was slow...and it took 20 minutes to place 1 order. I was so frustrated yesterday I started to cry several times. I hate the fact I am an such a Girl!
My Supervisors passed out candy yesterday. It only took a couple hours to eat the candy. The candy was the start of bad food day. I ate everything in sight.........Candy, fries, hamburger, chips, ice cream, rice noodles, fried cheese.......gross, yuk! When I went to bed, I was disgusted with myself.

I should have stayed in bed yesterday!!!
