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...

I often end up having to list things simply b/c I'm so far behind :) Glad I was caught up on the latest haps in your life though! Congrats to Michele! Meanwhile, I'm off to a progressive party which is ending at our house tonight! I'm glad this week is over!

Congrats on the new little man. They're wonderful. And so is being a big sis to them. Except for when they use their jockstraps as missiles to hit you in the head to get your attention because they wanna show you an armpit trick...good times, good times.

Your chickens are running loose in your backyard? That's so redneck!

Charlton - let me tell you something - if anyone had told me even a year ago that I would have chickens running loose in my backyard, I would have died laughing and then laughed some more. Not only do they run loose, but I also feed them out of my manicured hands, clean up after them (which makes me gag every time I do it), and pick them up and carry them into their cage each and every night. John talked me into this by saying that he would clean up after them and do all of the dirty work and I could cook with their eggs - now that he is gone 4 out of 7 nights a week, guess who has inherited the dirty work of taking care of the chickens?? And guess who has not seen one egg yet?? The things we do for love!!! They make me feel SO redneck, but they really do have me wrapped around their disturbing claws!

Heather - I heart your chickens :)

PS - Their feet still gross me out though :)

Melissa - you aren't the only one - that's the one part of them I still won't touch :)
