Random Thoughts

Ever have so much on your mind that you just need to make a list to get it all out????

  • My sister, Michele, had her second baby on Wednesday - a boy!! His name is Jackson Charles Brewster and he is precious. Everyone in my family is hoping that this will make me want to have one sooner...not sure how I feel about that whole thing, but I know that John is jonesing to have one tomorrow!
  • John was in Atlanta for 10 days - the longest we have ever been apart - and surprised me by coming home early - I love that man! He has officially started back at Airtran and is on his first real flight this weekend. He has an overnight layover in Miami tonight - I lived in Miami for 25 years, but have never driven to the airport - I am a sissy!! Hoping to have some company for the ride down there tonight to pick up my sweet husband so he can sleep in his own bed tonight!
  • I stayed with my niece, Jordan, last night - she cracks me up!!! I hope our kids are as sweet and as smart as she is.
  • I am going to a dinner at Sheridan House tonight - really excited about it, but sad that once again, I have to go solo.
  • Did you know that if you register your Starbucks cards online your soy milk and syrups are on the house??? (I received over $100 worth for Christmas - do people know me or what???)
  • John's chicken, Georgia, thinks she is a daredevil and somehow manages to get up in the tallest tree in our backyard every night. I shouldn't care - she's a chicken - but it annoys me.
  • Speaking of annoyed, I was so annoyed last night and couldn't figure out why until I got to Char-Hut and inhaled a grilled chicken sandwich - oh yeah, I need to eat in order to stay happy - I forgot!
  • I hope I get paid today - I am supposed to get paid every other Friday - that has only happened once.
  • I have the greatest mother-in-law in the universe - seriously!
  • I was really mad that Love 94 is no longer in existence, but the more I listen to it, the more I like it - they play a lot of Stevie B :)
  • There was a plane crash in NYC yesterday - John said it was because of a bird strike - can you imagine??? Thankfully, no one was hurt - just plunged into the disgusting icy waters of the Hudson River - I guess it beats the alternative. It makes me think of Kramer swimming in the Hudson...
