2) I can't get caught up at work...I hate this feeling! So stressful.
3) Cupcakes...why do they taste so good and call my name? Dang things!
4) So stinkin' tired of all this political crap. Just when I think I agree with a candidate they remind me why I don't. I can't even begin to think about wanting one of these people to run the country.
5) Where does the time go? Today I wake up and realize another month is gone. Tonight I get home from work, cook dinner, clean up and look at the clock and it's already 9pm. WHAT????? I didn't even get to sit down yet. I hate that!
On a happy note....
One week from tomorrow I will be 40! I think I need to call my Mommy and ask her what time I was born...I don't know and I think that's something I should know!

First, the picture, then I'll do the explaining!!!

Hard to believe that it's only 11 days (well, really 10 since it's getting close to midnight!) until my birthday. I thought the fact of turning 40 might start to bother me as it started creeping up, but so far, I still don't really care! It's only a number, right? At least that's what I keep telling myself. I'll have to post a couple stories this week that remind me that it might bother me just a little...but I refuse to let a number define my happiness! Heck, I've still got a lot of great years ahead of me. FORTY is YOUNG!!!!

No real plans for the weekend....I think the weather is supposed to turn pretty icky on us. I can't complain, we've had a BEAUTIFUL week. It's been over 80 degrees at least twice this week. I was home today and had all the window open and it was so relaxing to hear the bird chirping and the bees buzzing (that's another post...we have a wood bee problem on our front porch!).
I need to get some pictures posted to my blog in case Jodie stops by to check on me. She mentioned in one of her posts that she hates blog posts without pics! Oops! LOL
Oh, I also forgot to mention that I have a new great nephew! His name is Thomas. My neice Lacey and her husband Brian welcomed him into the world....oh, I can't remember the exact date, but think it was on April 16 or 17! I haven't had a chance to see him or any pictures yet, but I can't wait! I bought him the cutest froggy outfit last weekend!!
And finally, less than 2 weeks now until the big day! I'd really like to have lots of sunshine for my birthday and I'd love for Sydney to get some blue ribbons at the County Track Meet that is on my birthday. Final meet of the season and 7th grade sports are officially over! Wow!

It was a nice evening, until I realized it was 9:15pm and dinner wasn't even started yet! Oops. So, unfortunately, we ended up with a very late McDonald's dinner. Bad plan..I know!
So, it's now Thursday (at 2:15am!), and I just realized it's only 2 weeks until I turn 40...wow....it's coming fast!

3 Things I Haven't Done...
1) I haven't ever lived in an apartment
2) I haven't ever broken a bone
3) I never had my wedding dress professionally cleaned after my wedding!
So, tell me....what HAVEN'T you done that would surprise people???

Seems kinda typical for things around here, though. Today Roger had to fix both the washer and the water heater. He deserves a metal for doing both of those in one day...but it worked out well for me, as I only had to take everything out of the utility room once! :o)
We now have clean laundry and hot water...YAY!!
Nothing else exciting to post today. I've lost count of how many days until 40, but I'll check back in tomorrow and give you an update...as I'm sure you are all on the edge of your seat waiting to find out!!

I guess there was an aftershock a little later that several people at work felt, but I didn't feel it. Kinda crazy. I have heard and read several times that we have a major fault line that goes right through here, but I never really thought much of it.
There are a couple of quarries that aren't far from here, and sometimes during the day I have felt the whole house shake when they are blasting. I didn't think this earthquake felt any different than that, really.
So, that was the excitement around here on Friday! I tried to post this from my iPhone last night, but it didn't go through for some reason.

Anyway...big shout out to my BFF, KatieJ. I wish you didn't have to travel so much so we could get together more often!

Do you have lines from movies that you and your family use all the time? One of ours is above! It's from the movie The Ringer. If you haven't seen this movie, I HIGHLY recommend it! It's Johnny Knoxville (Yep, of JackAss fame...but this is such a totally good role for him!). The other line from that movie that we use all the time is...."Oh, Mylanta...you just scratched my CD...you picked it up in clear daylight and you scratched it"
So...post yours in the comments here or post it on your blog...let's see your movie quotes that you just love and use all the time! Or, perhaps we are crazy and we're the only family that does this!!! LOL

Got up and got myself ready and picked Sydney up from her friend's house. Roger talked her and Sammie into fixing lunch for us and we took a nap on the couch...UNTIL...Syd hollered from the kitchen that the oven was on FIRE!!!! Holy crap! In 39 years I've never once set the oven on fire! It was no big deal, Roger grabbed the baking soda and threw it on there and the fire was out! I, of course, got to clean up the mess! LOL Lunch turned out pretty good. Syd made a homemade pizza with alfredo sauce, macaroni and cheese, mozzarella cheese and some leftover grilled chicken and garlic. It was actually delicious!
After that, all 4 of us climbed into Sydney's bed and took another nap! Laziness, I tell ya! I woke up around 6:15pm. Roger had gotten up sometime before that and was in the living room on the couch watching TV. Sammie must have gotten crowded out of the bed because she was up on the top bunk snoring!
Sammie's friend Kenzie W. is staying all night and they have decided to sleep in the playroom tonight..we'll see how well that goes! Syd has been on the phone with her BFF all night...nothing new! Roger and I are still being lazy on the couch!
Hopefully tomorrow we will actually accomplish something!

So, I know how boring all of my posts have been lately. Today I thought I might try and be not so boring. The only thing I could think of was to list 10 songs on my iPhone that you might find somewhat ridiculous...so here goes....
10) Don't Go Breaking My Heart by Elton John & Kiki Dee
9) Humuhumunukunukuapua'a by the High School Musical Cast
8) Hells Bells by AC/DC
7) If I had $1000000 by Barenaked Ladies
6) Here it Goes Again by Ok Go
5) So Yesterday by Hilary Duff
4) But Anyway by Blues Traveler
3) Dang Me by Roger Miller
2) Eat the Rich by Aerosmith
1) Greased Lightning by John Travolta
Find any of these really funny? Well, I can say that I've only listened to the song by the High School Musical Cast once...I loaded that CD on here for Sammie! LOL Hells Bells by AC/DC is on here because I love AC/DC, just not necessarily that song...but I just loaded the whole CD instead of select songs! The rest of them..yeah, I pretty much love them!!!
So...what's on your iPod or MP3 player that might surprise everyone????

Didn't feel too great today, but Roger offered to take us out to dinner tonight, so I got myself ready and off we went! Made a quick trip to the mall to get Sydney some spikes for track and then went to Outback for a delicious dinner. Roger, Sydney and I all had Ribeyes and Sammie had the Joey sirloin. All of our meals were GREAT! I don't think we've ever had a bad meal at Outback! We did skip dessert this time, though....but we looked at the picture several times just to make sure we could live without it!

Hopefully tomorrow will be a happier post!!! I'm sure you're tired of "hearing" me whine!

Anyway...here's Syd looking rather silly! This was at Magic Kingdom after a good rain! We just got off the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, which got stuck for about 10 minutes! LOL). She's such a goofball! More silly pictures of her to come on another day!
And here's the Minnie Mouse picture I tried to send yesterday! This was before the rain came!!
