A Little Randomness

I really like watching The Middle.

I'm really tired today. It might be because I did 4 miles on the elliptical today. I never thought I'd be able to hang on that thing for 50 minutes, but I can and I did.

I still can't work out at home. Having a "house guest" is a hindrance when it comes to working out in the "comforts" of your own home. It's no longer comfortable.

I feel like I have a rock sitting in my stomach after eating steak and gravy with sauteed zucchini and yellow squash.

My mom mailed me her old laptop. It hasn't come yet. Priority mail use to be faster, didn't it?

I wish there was a decent FREE indoor pool here on post. Note the word free. Yeah I could go to the Y, but I want FREE.

I haven't accomplished a thing for this halfway party that's on Friday. Oh and about that. I SUCK as an FRG leader. NO ONE is coming to the party. It's just us few normal people who are showing up and NO ONE else. Out of 50 something families, there will be maybe 5 of us there. Boy does that make me feel like a crappy leader.

I cleaned my half of the garage today. My half only because I can't move Hubs' car. If you remember, I let the gas run out after leaving it running for a few hours. Well, its still sitting and I'm not gonna clean that side just yet.

The spring is kicking in. YEAH! Flowers are budding, weather is getting better.

I'm having thermostat wars with my dad... who is visiting... with no leaving date...

I asked him to stop turning up the heat. Yesterday I came home from the gym and the thermostat was up on 78. 78 degrees. Heat. :- Frustration.

I'm spending more time in the gym in the mornings... because someone's here when I get home.

I filled out my 2010 Census. It was the first one I've ever had to do. I was all excited and filled it out right out of the mailbox. In 2000 I was in Germany so we didn't get counted, I don't think. I filled it out and it is in my computer room, waiting to be put in the mail. I know I better put it in there before I forget to mail it and have a census taker at the door.

I have a friend who is an Italian from Germany and I was shocked, a little, that when I asked her if she'd gotten her Census, shw asked, "What is that?" Has she been under a rock? It's been on TV more often that the Tiger Woods coverage! Then she asks, well why do I need to feel it out? When I explained that it was important for the sake of the community and determines how much money goes into the community, she asks, "Well do I have to fill it out?" It's ten questions, I tell her. Easy. Yes. It's the law. Then she says, "Well, what will happen if I don't?" And I can tell tha she doesn't want to. That it is like a hindrance to fill out a form thhat takes 10 minutes. Her thing as always been that she doens't care because she's not American. She's an okay chick, but that type of attitude really pisses me off about her. Actually, she and I have very little in common...

I'm moving to Germany in December... maybe.

I was over exhuberant too when it came to the census and filled mine out already as well. I did want to count my furbabies because they do eat, and consume space in my home but I didn't. I behaved myself.

Your dad's girl isn't missing him yet???? Maybe she needs to know how much he misses her. ;)

I blog hopped to your blog. I have to say, that was very entertaining. :) I thought that I might be the only person in the country excited about the Census. Probably because like my own handwriting and the day it came I just happened to have a cool new pen to try out.
