Hilarious

My husband doesn’t really know how to use the internet. Sure, he can play around on Ebay, but for the most part, I have to help him get where he wants to go online.

Last night he wanted to pick some songs to make a custom CD. I set him up on Walmart.com. About an hour later he comes out of the spare bedroom, he doesn’t really say much to me. I was cooking dinner (gourmet; a Digiorno Pizza!) I said something to him, and his reply “I would respond to you, but I don’t want to end up on your website again” WHAT?! It seems that he got knocked off line and when trying to find Walmart.com again, he somehow found my blog. It is not that I am hiding this blog from him (Hi Dave!) I just never thought he would take the time to sit around and read it. He is disputing some of the facts on my blog, including this one. He claims that he doesn’t even try to do laundry because every time he does, he gets in trouble. Yes, dear, you do, you ruined 6 pairs of my Banana Republic pants, by putting dry clean only pants in the dryer! You are right; I don’t want you to do laundry. Helping fold and put away, yes, but the actually putting in the washer and dryer, no thank you!

My husband reading this will not limit what I have to say here, I am actually thinking that I will be using this against him. “Honey, are you sure you want to say that to me, you know where it is going to end up” 

Post Secret

This is by far my favorite website to visit.

I look forward to each Sunday when the post cards are updated. I purchased the book, which was pretty good, but I was hoping some of my all time favorites would be in the book, but they weren't.

I also enjoy this website, but there I am not sure people are telling honest secrets. I also bought the book that is from that site (Stone, Naked, and Looking in my Neighbor's Window) which I haven't even opened yet.

Don't think that I only read trashy books. I have just finished a couple really good novels. It is just I don't normally have time to get through novels right now. The weather is supposed to be crappy this weekend, so I am hoping to read at least one of the many novels I have stacked up in a pile waiting to be read.

Love or Infatuation

I have carried some newspaper clippings around for years. This is one of my favorites. It is from Ann Landers.

Love or Infatuation

Infatuation is the fleeting desire - one set of glands calling to another. It is marked by a feeling of insecurity. You are excited and eager but not genuinely happy. There are nagging doubts, unanswered questions, about the relationship.

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It takes root and grows, one day at a time. It is quiet understanding and mature acceptance of imperfection. It gives you strength and grows beyond you to bolster your beloved. You are warmed by their presence, even when they are away. Miles do not separate you.

Infatuation says, "We must get married right away. I can't risk loosing him/her." Love says "Be patient. Don't panic. Plan your future with confidence." Infatuation has an element of sexual excitement. Whenever you are together, you hope it will end in intimacy. Love is not based on sex. It is the maturation of friendship that makes sex so much sweeter. You *must* be friends before you can be lovers.

Love means trust. You are calm, secure and unthreatened. He/she feels your trust, and it makes him/her even more trustworthy. Infatuation might lead you to do things you regret, but love never steers you in the wrong direction.

My favorite line from TV

From Grey's Anatomy, Dr. Meredith Grey to Dr. McDreamy:

Pick *me*. Choose *me*. Love *me*.

The line is so touching, but in thinking about it, no woman (or man for that matter) should ever be in a situation where a choice like that is to be made.

Its my birthday

I am turning 28. Most people I say this to tell me what a baby I am. I don't feel like it. To me, 28, is getting old. I am no longer in my mid-20's. I am in my late-20's, getting ready for my 30's. I guess I should be happy because at this point in my life I have accomplished alot. I have a beautiful daughter (who will always be my best accomplishment) a nice home and a good job that I love.

Birthdays to me are a very special day. I will always go out of my way to make sure that loved ones and friends have a wonderful birthday. A birthday is a day to celebrate the past year, good or bad, you are still here. It is also a day to think about what you want out of the next year.

So another year has passed! Happy Birthday to me!

I get it, I have been tagged

The first player of this game starts with the topic "five weird habits I have" and people who get tagged then write an entry about their five weird habits as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next five people to be tagged and link to their web journals. Don't forget to leave a comment in their blog or journal that says you have been tagged (assuming they take comments) and tell them to read yours.

1) Almost every morning, I will put on at least 5 different outfits before choosing what I want to wear.

2) I read the newspaper in the same order everyday. I take it apart and put each section in order, I won't even scan a section of the paper until I have read what is in front.

3) I drink at least 8 Diet Cokes per day. It is an addiction.

4) I never forgive. It is a terrible trait, but I have been burned too many times in my life. If someone does something to hurt me or ruins my trust, I will never forgive them.

5) I love to send cards, I send cards for any occasion.

I am sure I can come up with some more stuff, but right now my mind isn't working right, because every 30 seconds I am busy telling my daughter to quit beating my dog :-)

The Cheesecake Factory

Every year on my birthday I ask to go to The Cheesecake Factory. For the past six year (except last year) we have gone.

This year I was thrilled because The Cheesecake Factory opened a location less than 2 miles from my house.

So last night was one of the coldest nights of the year. I was already upset because I had picked out an adorable outfit to wear. Due to the cold, I had to wear 8 layers of clothing.

We were supposed to have a group of 12, but things came up and it was just a group of 6. I put my name in and was told it would be a 75 to 90 minute wait! So we put our names in and walked around the new shopping center that had all of three stores that are open.

About 45 minutes are we put our name in, a friend called and said she and her husband would be able to make it. I waited in line to add two more people to our party. The hostess nicely told me she would add them with no problem, but she would also add an additional 90 minutes to our wait. I called my friend back and told her that as much as I would like her to be able to join us, she can't. There was no way I was waiting any longer.

Our 90 minute wait came and went. I asked the hostess what the problem was, she said she didn't know. After waiting almost 2 hours we were seated! The food was good, the cheesecake was awesome, and the company was wonderful, but seriously, it was not worth that wait.

My husband told me that next year, my birthday dinner will be at McDonalds!
