When was the last time you…

When was the last time you…

1. …sent a handwritten letter? Humm… well it’s summertime and all of my friends are of to camp and far away places where mail takes on a whole new importance so it really hasn’t been that long. I do have a card sitting on my desk that I need to send off to mom. If you’re reading this, HI MOM!

2. …baked something from scratch or made something by hand? Cooked a bunch of tasty treats last weekend, catfish, steak and what not. I also helped B&M cook up some chicken and cheese chimi’s Wednesday night before they headed off to San Fran.

3. …camped in a tent? Summer of ’99. CF Nola survival… entirely too long!

4. …volunteered your time to church, school, or community? Well, I just finished up a stint as an assistant t-ball coach thank you very much, and no, I won’t be adding that title to my resume.

5. …helped a stranger? Humm… not really sure on this one; I know that I’ve helped people here and there when I’ve been out and about, I just can’t remember right now. 😉

Questions courtesy of the Friday Five.

As a side note, Monday is Canada Day! I’m not sure what that’s all about, but it’s on my Far Side desk calendar (yes, I looked ahead). Have a great weekend all, and make Canada Day count!

Take me out to the ballgame…

It’s a Tuesday, which in my book is a bit better than a Monday. Ever have the case of the Mondays? Yesterday I did… wow but I won’t talk about it here because today is Tuesday, and we’ll just have to live with that. Today really wasn’t a bad day, but it was for the most part pretty uneventful. I did almost get creamed by an eighty year old man on the way to work though. (I really don’t have anything against eighty year old men who can’t drive – but I do have something against people who can’t drive). It’s all good though, I survived the near side swipe and the heart attack in the process so I guess that we both came out on top. I made a few layout changes to my blog over lunch, wow; this blog customization stuff is more difficult than I thought. If anyone knows someone who would like to take a stab at it for me, let me know and I’d gladly chunk over some change to get this whole thing running the way that I want it to. 😉

Work started off with an email from my little brother who sent me this linkWhat a sick f*ck. He knows how scared I am of clowns. Everyone knows how scared I am of clowns. I’ll loose even more sleep tonight over the whole mess. Some would say that I need therapy. I would say that there’s not much normal about people wearing a ton of makeup, big shoes, and a squishy red nose – but that’s just me.

We have our end of the season t-ball pizza party tonight, sadly I have to say goodbye to all of the sluggers for a year. I had fun being a coach, I really did and I hope that when some of the kids sign with a major league team, they’ll think of me. So for now, I’m off to munch some pie with a bunch of kiddies and then it’s home for some much needed shut eye. Today will get better; I have a feeling about that one – but tomorrow, now that’s a whole new ball game!

Ok, I’m Back!

Ok, I’m back…

The Friday Five:

1. How often do you do laundry? I try to do a few loads at least once a week or if I need clothes to wear.

2. What’s in a typical wash load? Hummm… well, I’m not big on separating colors, but I usually make a valiant effort to do so. As long as a red shirt doesn’t end up in the whites, I’m ok.

3. Front or top loader? Powder or liquid detergent? Top loader… which I guess is better than a freeloader right? And I usually use liquid detergent, but I keep a box of the dry crystal stuff on hand if I ever need it.

4. Do you use fabric softener in the rinse cycle? Always. After all, there’s nothing better than Downy freshness!!!

5. Dryer or clothesline? The Dryer, always… as a kid I remember having to hang our clothes on the clothes line – the ‘rents had FOUR lines! Two parental units and four boys, yeah we had a lot of clothes. After years of hanging clothes on the line, I’ve decided that I’d hang no more and I’ve been using the drier ever since.

Hey, I’m a healer!

Well, my little brother sent me a personality test from The Spark and I took it this morning. Needless to say, after seven pages of questions, I’m a healer!

It’s been a week…

Friday has been slow coming, but it’s finally here. The past week has been long, full of emotion, pain and suffering. I really can’t go into many details at this point so you’ll just have to bear with me. A big thank you goes out to all of you who have sent me encouraging thoughts through out the week. You know who you all are, and I am forever indebted because of your kindness. I now know the true meaning of friendship.
