Based on where I seem to be at this moment in my life, these two magnets seemed really cool and they had quotes on them, so I bought then and now I share them with you.
courage does not always roar. sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,"i will try again tomorrow."
~ Mary Anne Radmacher
peace. it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
In the same store, I also saw this quote that I thought was groovy too:
Friendship isn't a big thing - it's a million little things.
1) New York Times
2) LA Times
3) Wall Street Journal
Team A in fear of 3rd X says: Washington Post (which was also my answer)
Team B gets excited and says: USA Today
The real answer: The National Enquirer.
My jaw drops and I say WTF? *sigh*
In other news...I just got my first good night sleep since Friday. Woohoo. Oh...was that almost a week ago. Oy vey! I got 12 hours of sleep though. I went to bed at 8 p.m. last night. It wasn't straight through, but it was good. I feel rested. We'll see if I can sleep tonight. Wow.

Now I just need to come up with a good pen name. *sigh*
I actually went to bed last night at or slightly before 11 p.m. I actually fell asleep without a lot of trouble and I woke up at 6 a.m. on my own. I got up to go to the bathroom and wanted to go back to sleep, but I couldn't fall back to sleep. I didn't need to be up till 7:30. So I decided to get up and I got in a half hour walk on the treadmill. I watered my plants, did my dishes, made coffee, and now I'm eating my oatmeal. And it's Monday. I've NEVER been this productive this early in the morning ever! Crazy! If only I did not have to go to work, I'd say it was a perfect day!
Although I keep having weird dreams about my family. It's driving me nuts.
Happy President's Day!
What does this mean for me? I GET TO SLEEP IN TOMORROW!!!! I do not have to set my alarm and I get to sleep until I wake up. YAHOO! And I also do not go to work. That's an added bonus if you ask me. It's the little things really.
And tomorrow will be the one year anniversary of accidentally dropping my cell phone into the toilet. Yeah...I said it...toilet. It's actually a damn good cell phone too. It's almost two years old and still holds a good charge. As in, I've never had to buy a car charger for it.
Oh...and for those not getting any, does it ever feel like every THING is getting some when you're not?
( Image cut b/c it's HUGE. No worries, it's safe for work )
This advertising brought to you by the letter Z. For zebra. Yeah...I said it...zebra.
Later: a post on the past year and a look into the new year.

So, I'm no computer geek, but doesn't this say that I'm using Firefox 2 and that at the top it's not compatible, but at the bottom it says that it is?
Not to mention that I've been using Firefox for the last year with this program and it hasn't had a problem before.
I hope it works itself out. I'm just sayin'.
In other news, the little kid in the apartment below me no longer bugs me b/c my neighbor next to me got a kid in the last week or so. I'm not talking newborn. By the sounds of the shrieks and I do mean shrieking, screaming etc, it's probably around 2. The TV can not drown this one out. Still better than the dog, but not by much.
The bad news as always is that it takes me too long to get there.
It's been cooling down, and I can't fall asleep if I am cold. The last two nights I've put socks on to warm up my feet, so I can fall asleep. I wake up in the morning and my feet are nekkid. I have no recollection of how that happened. But it makes sense as I don't like to sleep with anything on my feet. So yahoo for deep sleep.
I didn't get a lot of sleep as I couldn't fall asleep last night, but I woke up around 10 a.m. I got to talk to jtane online for a bit, which was nice because I hadn't talked ot him in awhile. I got to talk to Chapo, EM, and LEK from work that day, so that was nice. I talked to my family. I got my hair cut, and then I met NC picked me up (another girl I work with) and we met up with people at Josephine's in Ferndale.
Let me just say that it is the coolest place EVAR! Seriously! It is the best French food I've had since being back in the states almost 8 years ago now. We had appetizers of Cajun shrimp and another one of scallops. I tried someone's French onion soup, which was seriously the best soup I've ever had. I got the seafood crepe. It had shrimp and scallops with a newburgh sauce and a buckwheat crepe. To DIE FOR. Then as a birthday treat the chef sent me out a raspberry liquor shot in a dark chocolate thimble shot glass. To finish off the meal, I had a crepe with nutella, bananas and whip cream. It was AWESOME! Not to mention the fact that the chef actually came out and chatted with me a bit. He was totally cool and kind sexy for an older gentleman. And the wine was really cool. We had a bottle of white and a bottle of red and it was yummo! So to recap, if you live in MI or visit MI, I would HIGHLY recommend checking out Josephine's Creperie & Bistro in Ferndale.
The only thing better than the meal was that I was surrounded by people who care about me. That made it worthwhile. Chapo, LEK, EM, and NC from work came. Then there was nevik_roc, Dewey, schmise, aerospcgrl, mcniadh, puggleville, earthfiregirl, madkingludwig, and physic_phoenix. It's very cool to be loved.
