A good relaxing day for me would consist of marathon reality programs, a diet coke and cross-stitching. Only the good reality shows of course. And there are some pretty good ones out there that will make you chuckle. I highly DON'T recommend My Fair Brady, even though I watched it to the end because I just couldn't believe that they would actually get married... they were a good example of who shouldn't get married.

Tanya turned me on to a couple of reality programs out there (and maybe she wouldn't want me sharing that), Laguna Beach and the spinoff from that, which follows Lauren, is The Hills. Which I might add IS having a marathon this morning. I love Run's House, Kathy Griffin's My Life on the D-List and Hogan Knows Best. Actually Tanya might have told me about Hogan's show because I think I always thought it had something to do with Hogan's Hereos, which in "reality" it's about Hulk Hogan and his family. I think my love for reality is pure noseyness about other people's lives.

What have I been up to?

I know... I haven't updated as much lately. What's it been? Once a week if that? I guess with working 3 days a week, it's enough that I'm not left with enough time to want to use the time I have left to blog. Even though I do love blogging. But more than that, I love reading blogging site. I just finished reading Dooce and was surprised to read that she has skin cancer. If you like blog sites, read Dooce, she has a great sense of humor and her site is interesting, if you like that sort of thing.

I took Dylan to get his wisdom teeth out yesterday and that was interesting for more than a few reasons. He's fine today. He took a pain pill when he woke up this morning and that's been it. He's not hurting much so he just wants to take advil from here on out. Plus, he goes to work tomorrow and I informed him that I'll be driving him if he takes pain meds at that time. I'm not letting him drive under the influence per the doctor's orders.

Caitlin is still out of town with her friend. She called today and is having a good time. She'll be home tomorrow and I'll be happy to see her.

It's been a relaxing weekend filled with kids playing, animals fighting and laundry as usual.

I'm Oscar

Work at the attorney's office is going well. The first week was a little stressful and I had the blemishes and out of whack back to prove it. This week has been better and tomorrow I work alone which is quite relaxing. It's been interesting sharing a desk with Leslie. I told her it was like the Odd Couple sharing their apartment. I don't consider myself to be a slob or even messy, but Les keeps everything very tidy. I have to laugh at some of the things she organizes. I don't mind anything that she does with our co-custody of the desk because I'm just happy we are co-existing in this position. It's mostly her that makes the job fun and if I didn't have her to laugh about the whole experience with, I don't know what I would do.

Hi Ho, Hi Ho... it's off to work I goeth.

I've been to work for two days now and I can officially say that there are good days and bad days. :-)

Well, maybe bad is a little extreme. So I had a not so great morning but it became better later on in the day. I think I was just in a bad mood. It's weird how you can start your day off like that and then find yourself laughing out of control in the evening just because of a fuzzball flying loose in your car.... you'd need details to understand the funny part. So I'm off to work this morning and I'll be alone all day. I can't see how that can be a bad thing. Hope it goes by fast.

Oh and one more thing... tons of rain recently. We received 3 inches a couple of days ago and it started again last night and rained until morning. It sure is going to be green and pretty here. I guess that's why it's called "Green Country".

Old dog, new tricks

Did the work/orientation thing today to get the gist of my new job. Was very interesting but a lot to take in at one time. I hope this dog's not too old to learn a few new tricks, because I have a lot to learn. Getting paid for it will be the best part, but I want to do a good job so it will be worth it to my new owner. :-)

Joining the Chain Gang

I have one more day of freedom. I go to work on Friday for an "orientation". I keep telling myself to get everything done before this day because this is it. I'm a big baby about things sometimes. You'd think I was starting a fulltime job, working 5 days a week. I'm making such a big deal about a job that only consist of 3 days out of the week. And yet I continue to prepare as if I've been sentenced for a crime I didn't commit. I want to like this job and I hope that I do, but if it becomes boring... then I'm surely being punished.

We are back from the USYS Regionals Championship in Little Rock. Caitlin's team made it to the Quarter finals but they just couldn't finish a few opportunities they had. So without that, our time there ended. It was fun overall but the hotel location was less than desirable. Downtown Little Rock is not a good place to have a team of 14 year old girls stay. And that part of Little Rock will leave you feeling like never returning. But if you go there, stay on the west side of town because you'll surely want to return. The soccer complex was beautiful with lots of trees and shade. If someone could have turned off the heat and humidity, that would have been nice.

And as always.... it's nice to be home.
