Happy New Year's Eve

Exactly 15 hours until my birthday! Aren't you excited? I am. I do believe though, that it will be a rather boring New Year's Eve. We are not having a party at our house and don't know yet what we are going to do. Oh well. Sometimes its just best to wing it.

And here's hoping the government lets us go early....

Word of the Day

Today's Word of the Day is Tacit - 1. implied or understood without being openly expressed, 2. saying nothing; silent.
Look at this cute cartoon, it was posted on the MSNBC website. I think it is so appropriate for some bloggers:

Word of the Day

Today's Word of the Day is Sacrilege meaning an intentional injury to anything held sacred; disrespectful treatment of something sacred.

Yesterday's Word of the Day was Ramble - 1. to wander about, 2. a walk for pleasure without predetermined destination, and 3. to talk or write about one thing and then another without useful connection.

Saturday's Word of the Day was Qualify - 1. to make or become fit or competent, 2. to give legal power; to make or become legally capable, 3. to make less strong; to modify or limit the strength or meaning of, and 4. to characterize by attributing some quality to.
Back to work and boy am I sluggish. I know nothing is going on, there is hardly anyone here, but I would rather still be in bed under the comforter. Oh well, gotta pay the bills somehow. The kids are still sleeping, that's for sure.

Word of the Day

Okay, here we go again: I probably have a month's worth but we will start out slow.

Today's Word of the Day is Paltry - 1. almost worthless; trifling, 2. of no worth; contemptible, despicable.

12/25 Word of the Day was Oblique - 1. something oblique, such as a line or figure, 2. in military use, by turning 45 degrees, 3. not straight up and down or across; slanting, 4. a muscle attached at an oblique angle to the structure that it controls, 5. having unequal sides; situated obliquely instead of transverse or longitudinal, 6. not straightforward; indirect. (wow, now what does that word mean exactly....)
Wow, the kids are still sleeping, hubby went hunting, and I'm awake. There is so much cleaning to do and I just don't want to do it. Need to make coffee first thing, I need a jump. Seriously, everyone is thrilled with their gifts, it was a very good Christmas. Oh yeah, but I'm glad its over. Have a nice Friday!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! I hope your day is jolly. Yes, yes, my kids got everything they wanted (and then some). My hubby got me a really nice framed picture of Troy Polamalu, love it, and an official Steeler's helmet signed by Jerome Bettis with the extra "bus" signature. It is great! And my oldest son got me a really nice framed picture of the Steeler's logo and the old 3 Rivers Stadium. Yeah!

Life is good!

I think blogging is the best thing ever invented. If I just want to say something meaningless, or if no one is around and I just want to hear myself talk, this is the place. Thanks Blogger!

So an early Christmas present, and totally unexpected, is that my boss told me to work from home today. And I am working, and I am doing other things that I have to get done also, how great is that! The kids are at their dad's, my hubby is hunting, and I get the whole house to myself for most of the day, I'm loving life right now.

Have a great Christmas Eve!

1.5 days until Christmas. Hmmm, better finish shopping, wrapping, and baking. Could throw cleaning in there also, but why bother.

Monday, December 22, 2008

Check out my blogging via new Dare.
Well, yesterday was a hell of a football Sunday. My Steelers lost to my hubby's Titans. I'm really okay with that and here's my logic: The top of the AFC will most likely end up playing Baltimore and I don't want to play Baltimore any earlier than the AFC championship game. Let Tennessee fight them first and then we will beat whomever wins. Yes, we lost yesterday, but I'm pretty sure we won't lose to them (or Baltimore again). Yes, I do believe Baltimore will make it through to the championship game. That sucks!

Today is baking day. I have to bake my Candy Cane Rolls, Christmas Cookies, and whatever else. I already made Cinnamon Rolls for the boys, so I am ready to go. Of course, I have to get a shower, dry my hair, make my grocery list, go to the grocery store, and THEN bake. The house will smell good at least.

And for a cold and dreary day, this is just what I need. Home baking.

Friday, December 19, 2008

Its FRIDAY! This has been a long week, I don't know why exactly, but it has been. This is the kid's last day of school before their break, they are thrilled. And, its rainy and dreary outside, why can't it just snow?

Thursday, December 18, 2008

So I am spending way too much time reading about my Dare, all the forums, downloading wallpapers, ringtones, etc. I think I am obsessed. But, again, I absolutely love it. Sorry.

Wednesday, December 17, 2008

Wow, love my Dare. What an awesome phone (so far). It is way too cool. My son is going to love his! He keeps saying he wants mine and I keep telling him that Christmas is next Thursday and you never know what you may get for Christmas. He doesn't like that response very much. He is complaining about the texting on his old, old Chocolate, you see, he got used to the qwerty keyboard on the u740 I handed down to him and now can't stand the normal number pad. Only a week to go, I hope I can hold him off.

Tuesday, December 16, 2008

I told you that I am spoiled, and I am. I got my new Dare yesterday, activated it this morning, and can't really play around with it yet because I am at work. J's new/used Dare hopefully will arrive today, he wants mine, doesn't know that he is getting one also. And now B wants my voyager, doesn't know that he is getting a new/used phone also. They just have to wait 9 more days, that's all. Hang in there boys!

Monday, December 15, 2008

What a great (horrible) Steeler game! The only good thing about it was the resulting "W". Now we can go on and win the AFC conferencec when we take down the Titans next week. I think they should be scared. Our defense is simply phenomenal, and at times, our offense gets lucky. That's why you play the games, and "any given Sunday".

Sunday, December 14, 2008

The tree is up, my roots have been touched up, and B scored the first 4 points in his basketball game yesterday. With a total of 6, his team went on to rout the other team 37-13. Awesome game! Let's do it again today. Both boys have games today, which will make me miss the 1st quarter of my Steeler game, or should I say bloodbath game. Hate the ravens, absolutely despise the ravens. The hire murderers, they suck, they cheat, they are nasty. GO STEELERS!

Saturday, December 13, 2008

Saturday morning, my husband is hunting, my boys are at their dad's for the weekend, and I'm getting up late. Okay, its really not late, but I had a lot of plans today that already are going to get screwed up. By the time I touch up my roots and actually get a shower, it will almost be time to go to B's basketball game. I guess I could just go shopping straight from there, but I wanted the tree up early today. That's the screwup. Oh well, plans were made to be broken. Happy Saturday!

Friday, December 12, 2008

So pretty much a quiet, dreary, cold Friday. They teased us with a winter storm advisory in Loudoun County and my kids were starting to get excited. Of course you know, if you live in this area, that a tiny snowflake can cause the schools to shut down and put all the idiots on the roads going at least 30 miles under the posted speed limit. But alas, no snow, just rain. Oh well, plenty of time for snow left in the season, actually its not even winter yet, technically.

Just S and I are here at work, the boss and D are not in today, it should be an extremely quiet day, considering we are both relatively new and really do not have any work to do. I guess eBay will get a lot of visits.

Thursday, December 11, 2008

Still looking for a decent priced Dare. I might just cave though and buy a new one. I've bought a few phones off of eBay and have had great success with them, but I want to be spoiled. Oh well, I'll keep looking.

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

So I got my number 3 son a new cell phone for Christmas and now, yesterday, my number 2 son's cell phone went to a white screen. He didn't do anything to it, and it was a hand-me-down of mine. So I am forced to buy another cell phone. That's fine, not that big of a deal, so I did. I bought me an Lg Dare and can pass my Voyager on to him. Well, he can't stand the Voyager, wants a Dare. I know, I know, I spoil my boys sometimes. What's a mom to do? They went without "things" for a long while there when we had absolutely no money and the house was ready to go into foreclosure. Now that things are good, house loan was restructured, new job, much more money, I guess I feel like I need to make it up to them. So, yes, I caved, I'm looking for another Dare. I really should just let him have the one I already bought, but I did without also. I'm just there......

Oh yeah, and I can't forget, I am very thankful for everything lately. Just had to mention that.

Welcome to the morning! (and Tuesday) Have a great day.

Monday, December 8, 2008

Today has flown by at work. I don't know what it is, but having meetings in the morning (it only last 2 hours) just pushes the day by. I love it. And yes, it really is still Monday.

And yes (2), my husband is still an asshole. He really needs to grow up and stop drinking as much as he does. I know I am not 100% innocent, but its really hard to talk things out when a. he's not home, b. he's always at the bar, c. he's never wrong, and d. he can't talk, he has to scream. GO TO HELL HUSBAND!

Sunday, December 7, 2008

My husband is such an asshole, he is the most self-centered, me, me, me, me bastard I know. If it doesn't go the way he plans, or someone doesn't listen to what he says, or its not all about him, he has hissy fits, seriously, girly hissy fits. And then he decides he won't talk to you and just walks around and ignores you. What a fuckin' asshole. Grow the hell up!

online from my voyager

so i am sending this online via my phone. that means that i am not limited to 160 characters and i can verify that aliens won't change my text into foreign characters. so Pitt won today (football) and are probably going to the Sun bowl. Its been a while.

My biggest news though, for the day, besides my son winning his first bball game of the season, is that BROAD RUN WINS STATES!!! We haven't ever been to states before in football and we went out in a snowstorm and shut them out! How awesome is that? Its great! Congrats to Broad Run Spartans!

Friday, December 5, 2008

So I changed my template again and I still don't really like it. I guess I have to do it from home where I am not blocked from so many sites that actually might have my perfect template. Oh well, this will do for now.
Okay, so I really don't like the look of my blog again. I know what I want, but I can't find it, and I definitely can't create it myself. I am not graphically oriented. I guess I'll just start looking again for a cool template. It's hard to find because of the classic vs. updated. The classic templates I like haven't been converted and if I use them, I can't use the widgets. Oh well, if that was only the worst of my problems.

Have a great TGIF!

Thursday, December 4, 2008

Well, I tried to email a post in (and included a picture), but I'm guessing that isn't going to work. I sent it about 1/2 an hour ago and I don't see it yet. I'll wait a while longer then consider it a lost cause.

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

One of these days I will write a real blog with real content. I think I am just doing this daily for something to do and for the satisfaction of knowing I can. I really don't care if anyone reads my blog, in fact, it's probably better if you didn't. Thanks for visiting.

Tuesday, December 2, 2008

Just another cold day in December, but I guess that's what December is for. So, what is new with you? Not much here, just rambling. Not much else to say at the moment. Wow, this is boring and lame.

Monday, December 1, 2008

Succeeded at NaBloPoMo, but failed miserably at NaNoWriMo. I think I posted a total of 300 words or something. Well, its more than I did last year which was a whopping "0". I have been a bit indifferent about my reading also since I got the new job, I'm not sure what's going on with me. I need to get my butt back into the writing mode gear and out of neutral.

So my Steelers rock! If we can play next week, the way we played our second half of yesterday's game, no one will beat us, GO PITTSBURGH!
