Tis The Season.

So Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is right around the corner. I can't believe how fast this year went. It wasn't a particularly excellent year but it wasn't all that bad either.

I've decided that smoking will cease January 1. Yes I know....why wait til then?? Well I decided that since there is only 1 more month in the year I might as well enjoy myself.

This holiday weekend was a much needed one for me. I had an extremely horrible 3 day work week last week and 2 days off from that place was exactly what I needed. Business is really picking up and that makes my job much more enjoyable!

Next weekend (actually this coming weekend) I'm headed off to Oklahoma City to see Dorrell. I'm am beyond excited and cannot wait!!!

Cesar And The City

Ok I know your wondering what the hell this title is coming from, but I just read Cesar's posting about the Sex and the City episode with Carrie and the fuck buddy. When I read that he invited a "friend" to a play I thought the end of the posting was going to reveal that he took said "friend" home. I was flabbergasted at the beginning.....turns out I wound up merely disappointed by the end of the reading. Cesar, it didn't turn out like I thought it was going to! I was about to pick up my phone to call you and say "Dirty Girl!"

Cesar's last few entries have made me laugh. I need more things like this to read when bored at work!!! So "work it!" Cesar!

Chico Needs....

I took this from Cesar's posting.

He was surfing the net during work (nothing like working hard!) and came across a blog by Sam.

Here are the instructions...Visit and put your first name and the word needs in quotations
(such as "Chico needs") in the search box, and then click the Google Search button. Write down the top 10 results.

Here are mine:

1. Chico needs a better song of honor.
2. Chico needs to grow in order to pay its bureaucracy.
3. Chico needs a tree ordinance.
4. Chico needs to be in a tank or something.
5. Chico needs loving people.
6. Chico needs a plan & the City of Chico also needs to fund the Park Dept. to implement the plan.
7. Chico needs increased lighting in student neighborhoods.
8. Chico needs no introduction at this point.
9. Chico needs to release another album.
10. Chico needs to go!

I believe number 1, 5, and 8 are the best!

The Parentals Approach.

I went to my blog earlier today and noticed I haven't been saying much of anything. Sometimes I just don't feel like writing so I tend to neglect it. But I have a few moments before heading home from work so I thought I'd write something!

My parents were in town this weekend (in fact they aren't leaving until Tuesday) for a surprise visit for my sister's 47th birthday. I can't believe I have a sister who is almost 50. I remember being younger and we would visit my mom's family. I would think how weird it would be to have a sister or brother that old! Now here I am with one who is. Scary!!

The realization of my parents age was firmly cemented as well. I drove back out on Saturday afternoon and was just hanging out talking and my dad mentioned that he forgot his toothbrush. He asked me to take him to the store so we headed out. We get there and I pick up a small basket because we had to get some other items. I'm walking along just talking when I realized that my dad wasn't with me. Confused, I looked back and there he was....many steps behind me. "Slow down I can't walk as fast as I used to!" is what he said. It made me kinda sad. I hate seeing my parents get older. Granted I know that it's going to happen but I want them to be with me for a long while.

In all it was a good visit. My sister was very huggy with me and I got to see pictures of my niece in her uniform (she's in the Air Force). I can't believe how good she looks. I was very proud to see her like that and I also found out she's going to be in Turkey for 2 years! How cool is that! She's beyond excited to be going and will be taking her 2 kids with her. I think it's awesome that she is doing this and is giving her children an opportunity to be around other cultures and learn new things. I'm so jealous I want to be one of her kids too!!!

OH!! Also found out today I get to see Dorrell the first weekend in December! I'm doing a happy dance now. :-)
