My Self-Conscious Friday

November 6, 2009

I used to hate driving to work, but now that I’ve started making coffee at home and drinking it before the drive, I’m coming to enjoy the 40 minutes to myself (probably because I no longer fear that I will fall asleep and die). I was sleepy when I woke up this morning, but that made the coffee taste even better. I got in my car with my mug in hand and my favorite U2 song queued up, “Stuck In A Moment”. I was just coming back to work from two days off and looking forward to the weekend off too. I was ready for it to be a good day. But since I don’t have a travel mug, I immediately dribbled some…

Can’t Live Without

November 4, 2009

What can’t you live without, even when money is tight? What’s most important to you? I’ve heard it said that you can tell what’s most important to you by looking at how you spend your money. In the past, I haven’t wanted to believe that because I was ashamed at all the frivolous things I paid money for, but I think it’s probably pretty accurate. These days if you look at our bank account you’ll see that most of our money goes to our mortgage, other household bills, and food. I guess that’s the part of growing up that isn’t too fun. But even so, I think these expenses say something about us. We didn’t have to buy a house,…

Ten On Tuesday

October 27, 2009

My friend Chelsea (I can totally call her my friend now because we had dinner together once!) has started a weekly feature called “Ten On Tuesday” where she comes up with ten random questions and answers them. I haven’t had the time to participate for the last two weeks, but today I made it a point to because the questions are always interesting. 1. What are you going to be for Halloween? In all likelihood, I won’t dress up at all. I work that day, as well as the day before and after, so I don’t plan to be going anywhere. I think I may have only dressed up for Halloween twice in my entire life. Boring, I know. 2….

Fifteen Hours Down, One To Go

September 17, 2009

I had every intention of writing something captivating today, but instead I’m working a surprise 16-hour shift. I’m still sick (barely, annoyingly), experiencing other body pains, and half of today was spent with The Student. I have a bit longer to go in this never-ending day, so I decided to take a break and give you this: Flickr Exercise of the Soul The rules: Type your answer to each question into Flickr search. Using only the first page, pick an image. Copy and paste the urls into Mosaic Maker. The result: ONE SOUL. 1. What is your first name? KATHLEEN (This is a picture of a place in Ireland that I’ve been. My name is Irish.) 2. What is your favorite…

Car Dreams

September 10, 2009

Last Saturday my mom asked to borrow my truck for a couple of hours. I’ve managed to stretch that into five days and counting. I’m not in ANY hurry to get it back. As much affection as I have for Bubba, he’s kind of driving me crazy right now. This is what went through my head when I got my mom’s car: Wow this is so awesome, I can just open the door and get in and out! Ooh, power windows! Cruise control! POWER STEERING THAT WORKS! Whoa, better watch my speed, it’s easy to let an automatic get away from me. Such a relief not to have to keep an eye on the temperature gauge. It’s so easy to…
