Spring Time!

Friday, March 31st, 2006

It’s going to be in the 70′s today! My boss is off. His boss is off. I’m sitting here jamming to my songs on iTunes (Sonny & Cher are playing. Man, I love them. Cheese!) It’s the last day of March! It’s going to be a glorious day! I actually don’t mind my boss too much, but there is still that sense of freedom when he’s not here. Is everyone like that or am I just immature?

I got my hair cut last night. I really like it! My hair was getting too long in the front and it was heavy and weighed down and just pulled my face down with it. Here’s the new look:

You can see I went even darker than I was last week. I love that it’s back to looking healthy and shiny again. The bleach was really drying my hair out!

Anyone have good weekend plans? We’re not doing much except going to my nieces’ 2nd birthday party. Can’t believe they’re going to be 2. Time flies.

We were supposed to hear back about the 2nd house appraisal yesterday, but we didn’t hear a word. That was disappointing. I hate waiting.

Oh and speaking of disappointing: Survivor. I was so bummed that Bruce didn’t swing to the La Mina side and get Shane voted off. It would have been hard, though, because it would have only been a tie and not a majority vote. Still, though, not liking the Shane too much and not liking that Casaya has the numbers.

Okay, now some Pink Floyd just came on. I need to be outside, driving in my car with the windows down listening to this. Soon.

Random Song Meme

Wednesday, March 29th, 2006

I love this little meme I first saw at Mikey’s. The answers I’ve seen on other blogs have cracked me up! Let’s see if mine prove to be entertaining.

So. The meme. It asks questions, you put your media player on “shuffle” and let it answer the questions. No cheating. Sure, a lot of it won’t make sense, but some of them are funny anyway.

How does the world see you?
Out of Control/U2. Oh my goodness, that cracks me up!

Will I have a happy life?
Fortunate Son/U2. Does this mean, I will have a happy life because I’m fortunate to have a son (or two). Or does it mean my son will be fortunate and cause me to have a happy life? Hmmm.

What do my friends really think of me?
We Didn’t Start the Fire/Billy Joel. I’m still trying to think how to interpret that one.

Do people secretly lust after me?
Everything’s Not Lost/Coldplay. I guess that means – maybe?

How can I make myself happy?
Saturday Night’s All Right For Fighting/Elton John. Love it! I can fight on Saturday nights and then I’ll be happy the rest of the week! :-)

What should I do with my life?
Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?/Rod Steware. Does this mean I should… go be a dancer or something?

Will I ever have children?
Save Me/Queen. Ha!!! Too late.

What is some good advice for me?
It Doesn’t Matter to the Sun/Garth Brooks. Oooh, I like that. Kind of like, “How important is it?”

How will I be remembered?
Do-Re-Mi/Julie Andrews. All righty then. And be quiet about this song being in my iTunes library!

What is my signature song?
Take It To the Limit/Eagles. Wow. Ain’t that the truth!?

What do I think my current theme song is?
Lights/Journey. I love this song, not sure how it’s my theme song… except I’m currently looking for a home. I guess it’s applicable.

What does everyone else think my current theme song is?
War Pigs/Black Sabbath. HA!!

What song will play at my funeral?
Keep On Movin/Soul II Soul. Beautiful!! I love, love, love this.

What type of men/women do I like?
Weekend in New England/Barry Manilow. Guess I like them when I can’t have them and they’re causing me great pain.

What is my day going to be like?
Joy To The World/Three Dog Night. I can handle that!!

Questions you probably can’t answer

Monday, March 27th, 2006

What the hell is up with Gmail today?? It’s pissing me off! I guess you never realize how much you depend upon something until it stops working.

Also? Why is my mortgage broker not here yet? He was supposed to be here 1/2 hour ago! I abhore lateness like this – no phone call, nothing. I need to leave here in 1/2 hour, so I hope he shows up soon or I guess we’ll be rescheduling. Maybe next time we’ll go to him to make sure the meeting starts on time. Ugh. And is this an indication of what we can expect at closing? I will not have it.

And why did I sign up to lead a meeting I don’t really like going to that much anymore – for this entire month? At least tonight is the last Monday of the month and I’ll be done.

And can you tell me – why do birds sing so gay? Ha.

Fern’s Jewelry

Saturday, March 25th, 2006

A good friend of mine has started to make her own jewelry. It seems she’s got quite the talent for this! She had an open house and jewelry showing at her house last night – we had a blast! Here is what I came home with:

Appraisals and Waiting, Oh My

Friday, March 24th, 2006

Update on the house: the appraisal came back at 15K LESS than the asking price, so we amended our offer to reflect the difference. I guess they didn’t like that number too much because now they are paying to have their own appraisal done. In all honesty, I hope the next appraisal comes back a little higher so hopefully they will say, “Okay, fine. We’ll accept that offer.” Right now, though, we’re just playing the waiting game. Did I ever tell you how much I hate waiting? It’s definitely not my strong suit! I keep hearing a little nagging voice in my head saying, “Patience is a virtue.” And then I smack that little voice upside its head. Heh.

So yeah. That’s it.
