My word for 2009 is CALM. It did NOT work today. I went to the truck to go meet a friend for supper and the truck would not start. This is not an old truck. I did not have the friend's cell number and so had to call a cab. The cab cost #25.00. Supper was good. The friend drove me home. After she left, I realized I had left my house key and truck key in the cab. Thank goodness I had a second key stashed, got in the house at least. Called the cab folks, cabbie had gone off shift. I only have one truck key that will disarm the alarm. Never mind I went to two, count em, two places yesterday to get a second remote, with no success.
The cabbie called and agreed to put the keys in his mailbox. I call K and ask her to come and take me to the cabbies' at the other end of the city. She is not happy. We go to the cabbies'. ONE of my key sets is in the mailbox, the other (my truck key) is still in the back of the cab. He is not home. K drives me home. I call the cab company. They tell me I have to wait until he comes back on shift. And when will that be, I ask? They don't know, they say.
I have no key to get into the truck, so that I can call AMA so that I can get a boost, so that I can get to work. I am NOT Calm. I am going to bed. I hate my life.

My girl made it home OK, I had a wonderful weekend while she was gone. W&I barbequed steaks and had assorted cheese and crackers, antipasto, sauteed mushrooms, blue cheese and blackberry salad in a rasperry vinaigrette dressing, rotini salad with asiago cheese, and then, as if it could get any better, turtle cookies and french pastries. OMG it was sooooooo good. Nice to catch up with W too.
Joni Gray posted one of my LO's on her blog, that's a real thrill for me. And I won the Our corner Airdre contest! What a nice surprise that was! I love it when people like my LO's.
Got a fair bit done this weekend, almost done Cuba. I spent a long time fiddling around with a page for the Dreamgirls challenge and got it just that way I wanted to be. THEN, I realized I missed the deadline. (Kick self in head) Duh. It's great page though.

Just finished a LO a minute ago and want to post it before I go to bed. It was fun, used a lot of elements fron different sources. I'm so glad to have found all the wonderful free resources on the Net. I try to be mindful of copyrights, hope I've succeeded.
It's been a lovely day. Summer is here, until the snow comes again next week. I found an awesome urban thrift store, K will love it as much as I do. got shoes shoes and more shoes. It must be a genetic things, this fascination we women have for shoes. Nothing spectacular in my case, just found some funky ones with a not-to-high heel. Need to snap those up when I see them!

Starting a new day and feeling pretty good about it. I keep thinking about the long weekend coming up and all the work I'll get done. Didn't work out yesterday, just couldn't convince myself to go to the gym, instead I came home, laid down and went to sleep instantly. Maybe I'll go tonight, then again, maybe not. Maybe I'll die chubby. Naah, I'll get it together. Eventually. :-)

A quick post tonight. Have found a wonderful new blog Scrapperlicious, and have lost a whole bunch of time wandering around on it admiring her work. What a lovely way to "waste" my time. Tomorrow is Mother's Day and the girl is taking me out for brekkie. She asked me where I want to go and I said Denny's. I just love Denny's don't you? Maybe it's not the most elegant place, but I like the down home waitstaff and the good food. Am looking forward to it.

So here I am on a Monday morning. Weekend was good, if tiring. We checked out the landscape for K's foray into the world of university. It's a big deal. A REALLY big deal. I'll miss her.
I was ready to go out the door this morning at 7:30 when I realized I don't need to be at work until 11ish. Geesh. so I've been trying some digital things with little success and much frustration. Oh well, tomorrow's another day. I'n outta here.
