Look familiar????  (google images)

I've been catching up on my blog reading, and Ami wrote something about her brain keeping her up, and I thought YES, I know how that goes, and why won't you SHUT UP!  (this is my brain I'm talking to, lol)  I have this happen sometimes.  A long time ago, I read an article about it, and there was a suggestion to not have a clock within visual range by the bed, so that you don't do what the person in the cartoon is doing.....it's 2:46am......it's 2:52am......ad nauseam.  You may find this list familiar too....

Did I lock the front door?
What was that noise?  I better go downstairs & check.
OMG, did I forget to call so and so and wish them happy birthday?
If I fall asleep right now I will get approximately 6 hours and 17 minutes of sleep.
I'm too hot.
"      "   cold.
How does he fall asleep in 10 minutes, when it takes me an hour?
I have to pee.
Did my phone just vibrate?  What now???
Did I set my alarm? 
Oh, look, I have 5 Facebook messages, I'll just check real quick.
If I fall asleep now I will get approximately 5 hours and 20 minutes of sleep.
Did I remember to pay the utlility bill?
I hope my Mom is doing OK.
WAS THAT A BUG?  no, it's just a tissue from under the pillow
I'm hungry/thirsty.  
If I fall asleep right now I will get approximately 4 hours and 45 minutes of sleep.
No kidding, folks........

Whew! We all survived....

Obviously borrowed from jantoo...lol.  If you can't read the sign, it says "variations on a theme, next 825 miles.  I can relate.

This will be a real quickie....I was working on my homework, and am ready to hit the sack...got work tomorrow at 7am.  
(the next day, lol )

I was too tired.  I'm still tired, but it's mostly just the level of today's activity, and house cleaning.  Man, how I hate house cleaning.  If I leave it all to Romeo, I have to admit it leaves a bit to be desired.  What we need is for one of us to get a massive raise so that I can have someone come out every 2 weeks and clean it for us.  As if.....

The wedding was wonderful.  Here's a photo of the bride & groom:

So, in case you're unfamiliar, this is my oldest son.  As you can see, her dress was really stunning.  She had pretty shoes on too, but you couldn't see them with the dress.  My sister and her husband went with me and we had a good time....even had a whiskey shot (& I'm not much of a drinker, but the occasion seemed to call for alcohol!).  And you know what?  The strapless bra didn't bug me at all ~ even before the drinks.  :-)

The one big drag about the trip was the drive.  It was exhausting.  And for some reason we decided to take hwy 285, which turned out to be a big mistake.  There is a lot of oil/fracking going on around the New Mexico and Texas border, so we had to deal with semi's and big pick-ups.  Sometimes the semi's would drive on the shoulder of the road to give us a chance to pass, and as they were doing that, they were throwing all kinds of stones.  And we nearly got creamed by a semi that we thought was letting us get by, but actually had pulled over to the shoulder of the road to turn into a gas station.  After that, we decided we wouldn't return by the same route.  The drive home was just boring, boring, boring.  10 to 11 hours in the car, no matter how comfortable, is just a big ol' drag.  I don't recommend it.

Well, I need to finish my homework (due tonight by 12am).  Have a wonderful week!
Love, 365

Man, where has the time gone.....

ha ha.....(Google images)

Well, this isn't exactly the type of busy I have goin' on.  But close, lol.

I have lots to do at work ~ I am supposed to make things as easy for my co-worker as I can, but since it's been a slow month, it hasn't been too bad.  However, for those of you that hold your breath until my next post ~ yeah, right ~ I probably won't be...posting that is.....until I return from the wedding.  Which is next week.  And I'm not at all ready.  Remember?  I'm a lethal procrastinator.  There's nothing like a deadline to get the ol' juices flowing.  

I have the dress, the shoes, the stupid strapless bra (which is OK, but I know I'll be rearranging it until I have enough alcohol in my system to where I simply won't give a damn).  We're driving (so that ought to be fun..12 hours or less) so we will have lots of time to catch up on conversation.  Hmph.

At least my professor is giving me an extra week to post my assignments, which I was so happy about and grateful for his generosity.  

Now, I just have to gear myself up for 5 days of staying with my Mom, who is a perfectly lovely person, for about 3 days.  Ha ha, no not really.  I just like to dish it out.  

If you don't see any writing after a couple of weeks.....just wait a little longer.  :-)

Love, 365

I get it......

  My face when I realize my 23 year old replacement at work believes I'm a washed up old has-been, haha. Me, thinking, that in 3 days I&...
