GGRRRRRR telemarketers

Okay, so Im chillin' for the evening. I just got the baby to bed and Cam in the bath, when the phone rings. I pick it up (we just got rid of caller ID), this lady begins by asking tons of questions about truck stops, travel centers, and gas stations. I'm okay, I'll listen and answer questions for a minute or two- only because i've never had this kind of a call and not get something sold to me, and because I love to throw my conservative opinion in and mess up some liberal poll. But seriously after 10 minutes (I know I'm a sucker), I ask the lady with a southern accent how much longer she has for me. She says "short time left". Meanwhile Mitch came in turned the TV on LOUD and Cam is out of the bath, without washing his hair. I'm starting to stress out and in an instant I just hang up on this chick. FOURTEEN minutes! She had me for fourteen minutes. Really, who wants to rate gas stations for that long. Gimme a break.

ps- a guy showed up here tonight wanting me to put a "security system" sign in my yard. "you won't have to buy anything." Good Grief!


I want desperately to post a blog. But FOR REAL how the heck do you put pictures and junk on the stinkin blog? I guess im pretty dumb.
So stay tuned. I gotta get some lessons from my I.T.-able husband.

I'm It.

So, I've been tagged. This would never happen if we were actually running around in circles, reaching for the shoulder of the girl nearby. I'd like to think of me as fast. But after two babies and life, maybe I'm a bit slower than I was when I was younger.

What Was I doing 10 years ago:
I was finishing up track districts, getting ready for my senior year of high school, and a summer of dry, hot, season of pea and wheat harvest. Yeah, I drove the Sweetest 2300 Case International $230,000 combine- Red.

What Was I doing 1 year ago:
Starting the addition on our house. Uh...still isn't finished.

Five Snacks I enjoy:
1. Carmel Popcorn
2. Banana Split
3. Diet Coke (from a can)
4. McChicken Sandwich
5. Chips

4. finish my bathroom
5. Co-Sponsor with Gatorade the AVP Womens Beach Volleyball Championships.

Five of My Bad Habits:
1. Clipping my feet ecxima at night, on the couch.
2. Yelling at Cam way too much
3. Forgetting necessary undergarments (like a bra) to do a session at the temple.
4. Publicly Sticking my foot in my mouth
5. Watching too much TV

Five things I will never wear again:
1. Hypercolor Teeshirt (someone bring this back)
2. buttons (a whole post in itself)
3. Thick Sports socks pulled up as high as i can get them.
4. Earrings- never did

4. XM radio
5. My electric sander (for furniture- not my feet)

I should have done this a while ago, but I really don't have much to say. This blog will be the home of things about me and I'll also throw some ideas out there once in a while (Lucky you). So enjoy life in a Hick Town.
