friday fun...

"You don't look a day over fabulous"

The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who were there first.

"What's with the juju bees on your ooh ooh bees?"

"It's like sitting on the back of an elephant with an iron trying to get out the wrinkles."

"We would like to help you out. Which way did you come in?"

"Confuscious says that crowded elevators smell differently to midgets!!"

If our fans are out there driving down that information superhighway, then we want to be playing at the truck stop. This is the future-so lets get it going.

Just saying no to drugs is like just saying cheer up to a manic depressant.

You got the right key baby, but the wrong keyhole.

Talk to yourself and you'll hear what you want to know.

It's not the COUGH that carries you OFF. . . . It's the COFFIN they carry you OFF IN."

Wanna guess who all of those quotes are from? I'll tell you at the end of this entry.

Last night was a great tv watching night for me... I am really enjoying American Idol this season. My favorite is Lauren Alaina because she's a Peach (a Georgia girl) and because she just has so much moxie for someone her age. She reminds me of Kelly Pickler, except with a little more sense about her. On American Idol, Casey almost got voted off but the judges saved him. It was the most dramatic, over the top episode they've ever had (that I can remember)... included Hulk Hogan, a birthday celebration for Steven Tyler... just lots of goofing off. I enjoyed it.

And then on The Office which is one of my favorite shows EVER... they had just the sweetest episode ever. I could watch it again and again... it made me say, "awwww" out loud. It was that sweet.

It doesn't take much to make me happy... a little time on the internet... some good shows on tv... a warm nest and a little rest.

Friday ALWAYS makes me happy! Blue jeans... weekend ahead... this weekend will be a bit more hectic for me with the family reunion and all... but it's still a weekend.

I'm almost finished reading The Shack. Truly, it has given me a lot to think about. I'm pretty cautious about where I gain my theology but I have really enjoyed imagining what would happen if you could spend a weekend with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We struggle, in our finite, human capacity to comprehend things, to reconcile how a loving, benevolent God could allow bad things to happen in this world. Honestly, The Shack gave me a better understanding of things. I'll recap more over the weekend.

The pollen count is off the charts... I've got a bunch of junk in my lungs... but I don't feel bad.
Yesterday I had more of the searing pain than I did muscle spasms. This morning... it's more muscle spasms. It's exhausting. Hard to explain but... the more pain I'm in, the more peace I have about things. I think that's a God thing... the whole, "when I am weak, He is strong" concept. The less I am able to handle in my own strength, the more He provides.

The local Kiwanis talent show is tonight and I'd like to be able to go and see some of my friends' kids in it... not sure I'll be up to sitting... Sarabeth and Jamie aren't in it this year... I wish they were... I had picked out the CUTEST song for them to sing and had even started teaching it to them... it's a song from the musical Side Show and it's this sweet ballad "I will never leave you... I will never go away... we were meant to share each moment... beside you is where I will stay... ever more and always, we'll be one though we're two... for I will never leave you... "... in the show it's sung by Siamese twins! How cute would it be to make them into Siamese twins? But... my girls, being my girls, whenever I would play that song for them would say, "Can we listen to Castle on a Cloud?"

Praying that child support comes on time... this is a long, stretched out time between paydays for me.

Praying for a pain free day at work.

But... no matter what today brings... it's Friday so no matter how bad it is, it will be better in about 12 hours!

The quotes are from Steven Tyler! There are a lot more that are funny but slightly- ok VERY obscene. He's a witty guy.

Love and hugs, y'all.
