Random Thoughts

And so life falls back into its routine again. The nice thing is that even though I'm working approximately a million hours a week at work right now and my house is a mess, I'm able to look at a picture of a sweet little someone anytime I feel overwhelmed and she makes me smile. :)

Last night I made Black Bottom Cupcakes to bring to work. The recipe and request was sent to me from a girl in another department, along with a note that they had let me get by without bringing cupcakes for a bit to let me bond with the grandbaby, but enough was enough! LOL! I was tickled and touched by the note, so of course I made them. Keith and I shared the "trial cupcake" while watching Damages last night (yeah, I'm hooked on another tv show!). We thought these were VERY good, so now to see what the workmates think.

This little gem came in the mail yesterday and I feel so hip and cool now! This means I can now put away the 8 track player and join the twentieth century. ;) I've thought about getting an mp3 player/ipod for quite a while and just wasn't sure if I'd use it enough to justify the cost. A friend sent me the link to this one on last week. It's refurbished and was only $14.99 and no shipping! This will be a very inexpensive way to see if it's something I'll use. Keith loaded two of my favorite "albums" on it last night and a couple of podcasts, so I'm set for today. Of course, I had to ask one of the girls at work this morning how to turn it on, but I'll get it all figured out eventually.

An example of my poor neglected house. I bought these flowers two weeks ago when Mom, Gary and Michele came to town and they are still sitting in the same spot. Poor little droopy flowers. When the kids were over for dinner the other night I sat and held Brooklyn while they ate (I got the better end of that deal!!!). I apologized for the flowers and Loni just calmly said "flowers fade next to Brooklyn's beauty". I loved it. :)
