Just for laughs...

I saw this list on someones blog and they are TOTALLY TRUE!

*Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

*I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

*Was learning cursive really necessary?

*Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

*Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

*I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

*Bad decisions make good stories.

*Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

*I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

*"Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this - ever.

*I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? **** it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail. What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?

*I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

*I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

*I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

*Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.

*I would rather try to carry 10 over-loaded plastic bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

*The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.

*I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

*How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

*I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

*Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

*Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber & dumber every year?

*Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from; this shouldn't be a problem....

*While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.

*Lol has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say"

*As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate bicyclists.

*Even if I knew your social security number, I wouldn't know what do to with it.

*Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

*Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet my everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

He totally deserves it :)

Dustin got a new toy for his birthday/promotion to Tech. I thought that I was in charge of getting him a nice gift, but turns out he ordered it for himself and bought it two months early! Whatever. As long as he is happy, right? And boy is he happy! He had to put it together and was able to fly it two fridays ago. I was just a teensy bit worried he was going to crash it (only a little bit), but he didn't! YAY! He did an amazing job actually. Too bad he is on twelve hour shifts for awhile or he could fly it more.

Two of his planes

Last checks before the first flight

Turns out I was too busy taking video of his flight to get any pictures in the air. Next time! Good job hubby and congrats on your promotion!!

I HATE laundry! More specifically the laundry mat.

Every week I dread having to do laundry. When we moved in and had our TMO appliances delivered we found out that the hook up for the washer was behind the toilet in the garage and wouldn't reach. The other hook up is in the utility closet on the balcony off our bedroom, where we wanted to put our dishwasher. I had a decision to make: dishwasher or washing machine. I chose the dishwasher. (and if you are wondering: yes. I carry all my dishes through the house to my bedroom and OUTSIDE to the balcony. and yes. it IS worth it.)
So since we have no washer, (we subsequently sent back the dryer as well) we have to do laundry at the laundry mat. Which I hate. It is always crowded and smells like pee.
Well a couple of weeks ago I realized something that makes me hate the laundry mat even more. I realized that sometime between November and January I left a whole load of darks in the dryer. A WHOLE LOAD. And it included some clothing I really really liked. My first clue that stuff was missing was when Dustin first asked me where his black Hurley shirt was. I thought that he must have misplaced it. Slowly I started to figure out things that I was missing. Like my favorite grey sweats, a black long sleeve shirt and a grey jacket. I went back to look for all the missing items but they must have already thrown them out. I was too late at realizing what I had done. I am really bummed out. I can't wait till I have my own laundry room again. Or at least my own washer and dryer.
Oh and the other thing I hate about going to the laundry mat: walking ALL my laundry up and down two flights of stairs and putting it in the car. And just my luck I usually end up doing laundry on rainy days.

Laundry is my enemy. Enough said!

Here is one cute kitty playing in the sheets! (but it's only cute until he gets his claws stuck.)
