Bad Girl

Okay so I might be one of the worst bloggers on the net, there are so many times when something happens throughout the day and I think- can't wait to get home and blog about that. Then I get home and the event doesn't seem as important/funny/worth while, etc anymore. Either that or I just forget I was even going to blog about it (the dangers of getting old)

I have one of those awful summer colds, I HATE IT!! Feels like all I do is sneeze! Oh well, summer is almost over right?

Good news, D and I FINALLY booked our vacation, we are taking a cruise out of Miami, going to Grand Turks and 2 different Bahama islands. It is only a 5 day cruise, but that is okay, we leave on Monday and are back in Miami on Saturday. Works out well since we have to go to a wedding the Saturday before we leave. Should be fun, just looking forward to getting away, and not having cell phones, e-mail, etc.

Since today is my day off, I really should cook dinner, also need to complete my circle journal and get that in the mail before they throw me out of the group. Instead of doing any of those things, I am going to check out the stats of my fantasy football team players and see if I can come up with the lineup for my first game. I am very competitive and don't like to lose, I have to make sure I get this right from week one!

Alumni Pride

Not sure if this is something I would be proud of if I had children attending the University; however, considering WVU was the number one party school when I was there, then upon my graduation, it dropped out of the top 10. I am proud to say they are #1 again!! Read the whole article here!!

Proud Aunt

This might be my new favorite photo. My nephew is so stubborn, he refuses to say "Mommy" or anything that sounds remotely close to it- yet he can say sunshine, turtle and a tons of other words. Even though he won't say Mommy you can tell he loves her..... this picture says it all to me. There is no greater love than a mother and her child.

Jersey Drivers.........

I will be the first to admit Jersey drivers are interesting to say the least. We tend to drive faster than we should, change lanes without signalling and tail gate like it is our job. One of the things we also do and I will never understand why is put stupid bumper stickers on our car.

1. My kid is an honor student at
Who cares if your kid is an honor student? The way they have manipulated the education system these days everyone should be an honor student.
2. Transporting Therapy Dogs, please don't tailgate
WTF? What does one have to do with the other? I don't care what you are transporting if you are driving too slow, I will tail gate
3. All of the "green" ones on SUV's
Don't talk to me about global warming and being environmentally aware when you are driving a gas hog!

Don't even get me started on all of the different color ribbon magnets people have on their car. How you are supporting the troops when you are buying a yellow magnet at 7-11? What kind of breast cancer research are they doing at the local grocery store. Come on!!

Domestic Goddess I am not

Someone sent me this email, I thought it was too good not to share.


1. If you are choking on an ice cube, don't panic.Simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throatand presto! The blockage will almost instantlyremove itself.

2. Clumsy? Avoid cutting yourself while slicingvegetables by getting someone else to hold them whileyou chop away.

3. Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting thetoilet seat by simply using the sink.

4. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cutyourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducingthe pressure in your veins. Remember to use a timer.

5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock,will prevent you from rolling over and going back tosleep after you hit the snooze button.

6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose oflaxatives, then you will be afraid to cough.

7. Have a bad toothache? Smash your thumb with ahammer and you will forget all about the toothache.

8. Sometimes, we just need to remember what the rulesof life really are: You only need two tools - WD-40and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use theWD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the ducttape.

9. Remember: Everyone seems normal until you get toknow them.

Thought for the day:
Some People are like slinkies. They are not really good for anything but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
