Some things that bug

Why is this a trend with me lately?!?!!?!

1. When your body, who really knows you need at least 8 hours of sleep, gets conditioned to think the 5-6 hours of sleep you’ve been getting lately is the “norm”. Hence, I am sitting here typing this blog at 4:24 am after having been up for an hour!

2. When you find out some pretty important information about someone in your life three years later and it still bothers you as if it were three years ago.

3. Fancy cars that don’t have automatic lights (that one’s for my friend who will remain NAMELESS! LOL)

4. People who come to see your house, which is for sale, who leave the lights on when they leave.

It’s a short list ’cause I just realized I need to book a shuttle to get to the airport TOMORROW! Ciao!

Serious Ramblings!

Okay, first of all – yesterday I got a flat tire after hitting a massive pothole. Of course I called Jerry right away, but he didn’t get the call so I forced myself to suck it up and change the freaking tire. I felt so accomplished when I finished it, although I WAS sweating like a pig!

Oh, and 4 tires later and new brakes for the car – I am sad because the money I was saving for my new desktop Mac Pro is gone……sigh.

Secondly, did I tell you about the IDIOT in my Job class? Here are some excerpts from my “Idiot Notes” from this past Saturday:

Things Andrew did in class 8/25 that irritated me:

• Garden of Eve (instead of Eden) and argues with Prof about what is correct.
• Proverbs are promises, not principles because if you follow them they will always happen. NOT!
• We humans are not animals because we worship God and animals don’t. He argued that animals were created after man and that the version of the Bible the teacher had was wrong. Prof said we relate to the animals and that we have lungs, bones, etc. The difference is that we are infused with the spirit of God.
• Prof: Job knows God thru the creation because there was no written word at that time. Andrew: so you’re saying Job didn’t have a relationship with God? Prof: no, I am saying Job knew God thru creation and not the written word, and they are not mutually exclusive. Andrew: but Job didn’t have a relationship with God? Damn.

There was actually more, but I was so irritated I stopped taking notes! Sigh.

Okay, just wanted to blog so I wasn’t falling behind Deana! LOL

Special shout out to LIZ who not only drove to lunch yesterday, but was nice enough to take me to the tire store to get my car! LIZ YOU ROCK!!!!!

Oh, and I leave to visit Texas in TWO DAYS! YES!!!!!

Blessings come in small packages (or, as it were, printer paper boxes…)

I received a call from Wandita on Friday saying that her tribe had a care package for me if I wanted to pick it up after leaving the hospital (where Del’s baby was born). Well, that didn’t end up happening but Uncle Don brought it in his truck today! Whoot whoot! Thanks to Don, Wanda, Heather, and Allie who prepared the following care package that is absolutely PERFECT!:

1. Paper plates and BOWLS! NOW I can eat my chili!
2. A small frying pan and sauce pan- now I can COOK my chili!
3. Utensils, plastic silverware, and a can opener.
4. Dish soap and scrub sponges (does that mean I have to CLEAN items in #2 &3?)
5. Ramen soup – my fav!
6. Dinty Moore stew – MY FAV how did you know?!?!!?!
7. Stagg Chili Laredo – how did you know this is my all time fav?!!?!!?
8. A plastic drink shaker which includes 4 shot glasses – this TOTALLY made me laugh!
9. Eclipse gum!
10. SUNFLOWER SEEDS!!!!

If I forgot anything, please forgive me!

Thank you SO MUCH for your sweet, generous hearts that have cared for me so well! I just ate some stew and my tummy is way happy. I am drinking WATER and eating some seeds as I type this. Very content! Thank you very much – I love you all!
