1) I really should have lived in the mid-70's
2) I'm a sucker for a big yellow horse
3) I may never move freely again
4) I strongly dislike living in a maze of boxes

I'm hot. I'm tired. I'm ugly. I have 1/2 a living room left to vacuum and I'm done @ Westcreek Lane....and my darn vacuum just started smoking and died...

You know that last pass through a house as you move out?? That one that has you throwing whatever in the same box just to get the hell out of there?? I have that contains a set of knives, 2 dowel rods dog toys, febreeze, kneehighs, a slip (who wears those anymore (besides apparently me) anyways?), coat hangers....
Lord help me!!!! Please God bring me a husband so I never have to do this all alone again. After today, NO MORE HEAVY LIFTING.

Just read the funniest thing....
"Vegans complaining about hotdogs is like Amish complaining about gas prices."
Why can't I ever get to fly next to someone famous or facinating or an empty seat?!

I just saw myself @ 90...
BIG teased hair. Sequined jacket. Full make up. Pink pants. Red shoes and bag.
Man (~40yrs) in business suit w/ faux hawk...hmmmm...
As much as I love lime green...lime green pants should be worn by no one!

There is a child crawling on an airport floor...I think that it would be safer for the lil critter to crawl in a horse stall!

I'm not lost, but I should have been a rodeo queen

Yes, I should have been a rodeo queen.

Not a whole lot has happened to me since my last post. There have been a few Fern-ism's here and there, but nothing too remarkable off hand.

I've been keeping busy with stuff. Packing and readying myself for a move...well, it sucks. I have a moving crew. I have put a deposit down on said moving crew...1 bottle of Seagram's 7 and a 12-pack of Squirt.

Things I have learned since my last post:
  • I am not a fisherman
  • Newt has become addicted to riding in a car
  • Current phase: drinking water out of a glass
  • Lonesome Dove is a Classic (oh wait, I already knew that)
  • I am very Type-A...too Type-A for making Power Point Presentations
  • Children should not have fondant covered cakes for their first birthdays--the cake may be lovely, but its too hard to dive in
  • Ziploc Microwave Steam Bags are the new savior to corn on the cob
  • The new Lean Cuisine Breakfast Panini's are not good, they suck
  • That it is wonderful when an old friend comes back to you...the friendship is different, but its still a good feeling that they are back
  • Sometimes the people you look to the most disappoint you the most, but this can be countered by finding joy and inspiration in others perhaps forgotten or overlooked
I should have been a rodeo queen....don't ask I don't know!! I can assure you that I would have fabulously large hair, amazingly matte make up, wonderfully bright clothing, a tiara that glistened like a 1,006 stars, and pants on underneath my chaps! HA, got you...

I also discovered something amazing today....THE PIONEER WOMAN HAS LAUNCHED AN ALL RECIPE SITE...THE PIONEER WOMAN HAS LAUNCHED AN ALL RECIPE SITE... This is so exciting...I made the steak bites again the other night...delicious. Mom made the potato salad from her 4th of July posts and said that it was nothing less than amazing! The Web site is called Tasty Kitchen. Go there. Dive in. Be merry. Find another version of yourself! I have to admit that I haven't checked out more than the main page, but I couldn't wait to share the news!
