Vanity only keeps determination going so long.
I have had a few Diet Cokes here and there. But it’s all part of my master plan. You see, the fact that I can have a cool sip of carbonated pleasure every once in a while takes such self control.
Sometimes not thinking about something is the best route possible.
I’m borderline addicted to McDonald’s ice cream cones. And ricotta cheese.
I hate when I want to do something but I’m not sure what exactly it is nor how to do it.
I want to make a tart or savory pie.
It’s so distracting talking to people whose voices do not match their faces.
I spend 2 hours in the car everyday; I read a lot of personalized license plates. Though I don’t have one myself, I’m all for people expressing their wit and creativity on their plates. But, “MY XL7” or “MY 911” are neither creative nor witty. They’re dumb. Just saying. And “SEXCEE” on a Nissan Altima is not sexy. Not at all.
I’m happy Shane’s not on call anymore (…until next month.)
I don’t know why but I’ve been racking my brain all week trying to remember the name of the doctor who delivered Beau. My doctor was flying back from San Diego as I was in labor and Beau showed up before he did. All I know is that the doctor on call was older than he looked (according to my nurse Claudette he had a thing for Sun In) and wore a t-shirt, shorts, and flip flops until he had to scrub up for the operating room. Strange.
I’m doing a good job of tackling my library one book at a time, but I keep adding to my list, which has me wondering if I’ll ever read all that I own.
I come from a Yankee family which means we keep everything. Everything. As I look at old photos and family heirlooms around my
house I wonder what the original owners would say upon seeing their vases, sewing boxes, jewelry boxes, photos, quilts, and items of decor displayed in my home. What would I say if I saw my great-great-someone displaying my jewelry box in their living room? Don’t know.
It was a little rainy and cloudy yesterday. I am hoping for more of the same this weekend.
I wore a long dress to work today. It felt so good; almost like wearing pajamas.
My toenails are in need of some color.
I obviously need to take my camera out and about more since I’m gracing you with cell phone photos of my office. Of course, I do spend a lot of time in my office…
My Mom is en route to Washington from Iowa. I love car trips. The freedom, the scenery, the adventure, the possibility. I used to love
driving the winding back roads from Ames to Iowa City while I was in college. And while I don’t have winding back roads here, I try to vary my drive home and enjoy some new scenery every once in awhile.
I haven’t bought a pair of shoes within the last year. I think it’s time to remedy the situation.
Enjoy this glorious August weekend!
