It's Thursday, isn't it?

Today is the first day I will have worked this week.

We were out Monday for MLKday. Then, it snowed!! I was so happy to get an extra day at home. It felt nice to have a surprise day off. Billy and I were hurriedly trying to finish rewatching season 3 and 4 of Lost before last night.

Then, we were on a 2 hour delay yesterday morning, and I like those too. We go to school a little later but it counts as a regular day. I got up, showered, came into the living room, cut on the Today Show, and saw that we were out again!! The sun was shining, and no snow on the ground. It puzzled me, but should I really be looking a gifted horse in the mouth? Now, I have learned not to ask why, but to be happy with what we are given. Soooo, I happily got to stay home again!! Once again, we watched DVDs trying to finish up. We somehow did it and then got to watch it for real last night! I'm happy to have it back, but of course, I am confused already!! That's why I love it though!

I am going to work today though. This will be an extremely short week, and there's nothing wrong with that!!!

Have a great Thursday everyone!

It's coming!!

I saw this picture on PerezHilton, which is from Details magazine, and I got excited!! There is something about Matthew Fox that I like. I know his character can be a total you-know-what, but I get him. Plus, he's awfully pretty to look at!

Lost is coming back!!!! It will be here Wednesday night and I am so stoked. I love this show. I love that, sometimes, after I watch it, I still am not sure what happened. I often look at my husband, and ask, "What the #&*@ was that?" That's good television folks!

I got Billy the first 4 seasons on DVD for Christmas, and we have been trying to rewatch before Wednesday. I don't think it's going to happen. It's been fun to watch though. We'll see something and be all, "Well, duh! The writers actually told us what it was going to be!" Take when Hurley and Sayid are on the beach with the radio, they pick up a Benny Goodman song (or something close to that). Sayid says that it could be coming from anywhere and Hurley says or any-TIME!!

Folks, they actually told us. We were just too simple to get it. Oh how I love this show!

Any Lost fans out there??????

Happy Birthday Allie!!!

Today is my youngest daughter's birthday. Allie is 6 today. She is so excited that she work up extra early this morning. I can't believe that she is where she is because babies aren't supposed to grow up, are they? She is a crackerjack, and I wish that I had time to share everything that she says. She did say last night, "Remember when I used to want to skip 5 and just go to 6? Well, I don't have to think about that now!" Her quips are the stuff of legend at church. She loves to be kissed and cuddled. I always can count on some lovin' from her. I pray for her to grow into a woman that continues to show her love and friendliness to others. I pray that some Christian parents out there are raising a son to be a good mate for her. I pray for her to be healthy and make good choices as she grows. Finally, I pray that I am the mother she needs me to be to help her get through the coming and forming years.

Happy Birthday Allie!! I love you.

I know it's not Friday....

I know it's not Friday, and Flashback doesn't quite go with Saturday, but I wanted to do a song flashback anyway! So, we'll call it Song Saturday.

I was running errands the other day and listening to my current favorite channel on Sirius, '90s on 9. Most of the songs remind me of college and the fun times I had. I can usually hear a song and remember a certain time, a certain person, or some event. I feel like my life has its own soundtrack sometimes.

Anywho, this song was one of those songs from 1991, I think. It takes me back to fall at Emory and Henry. Ahhh, the good ole days of college.

So, here's Naughty by Nature, OPP. I really loved this song at the time.

Some January blahs...

I had to go back to work yesterday.

Yes, I had to.

I would love to not have to work and be able to feel like the laundry actually got finished at my house.

I would love to have my wits about me at the end of the day and not feel so short-fused with my own children.

I would like to be able to start something at home and not feel like I'll get around to it on a break.

I know, I know, I am whining, but please let me. My assistant is out this week, for a very blessed reason (a new grandson), but it's report card time and my nerves are shot by 2:00!!

Also, it is raining so much here that I may be building an ark tonight. Who knows!!

I want some sun or a snow day or something! Alright, I feel better now, thanks.

By the way, I am going to Nashville in February to the Blissdom Conference. Anybody out there going? I will blog later about getting ready for it with my best friend, Christi. We will have fun!
