The Boss Man told me I'd hit the trifecta the other night. (Does one say "hit the perfect trifecta?" Or is that redundant?)

He came in from out of town all bedraggled and worn out. Poor guy had driven to Louisiana the night prior and got stuck in traffic until 3:30 am and then went to meetings all day and drove back to TX the next night. Pulled in to our house around 11. Ouch.

Meanwhile I'd taken nyquil and gone to bed with the kids around 8:30. Also ouch, if you count that I've been hacking and sneezing all week. But nonetheless, I had gone to bed at 8 pm. Drugged on cold meds. With both kids snuggled into our bed with me. Delicious.

Apparently I had also:

1. Left the car unlocked.
2. Left the front door unlocked.
3. Left the back door unlocked.


oops. I was also in trouble.

My parents used to call me feckless. You don't have to go look it up. It means "inattentive to detail." Pretty much sums me up. Apparently I spent most of my childhood with my head in the clouds. At least it explains Quirky. I could give a rats ass about the details. Appreciate them, but pretty much only can't focus.

which brings me to my new favorite website:

I like to send golden little nuggets to The Boss Man so he can see the humor in his wife's flaws. It seems to help.

Heart Ablaze


I keep playing it over and over and over and over. I've always had a huge crush on Super Grover (sigh...) and now I must admit that Quirky and I spent most of the evening practicing the little dance moves that the muppets do at the bottom of the screen.

Rare that one little 1:52 snippet can sum things up so well...

So Very Very Busy

Worrying about stupid shit like this:

If I go one way home after dropping Quirky off at school then I can stop at the convenient store that has caffeine free Diet Coke. Then I get my daily vat.

But the straws there suck.

The other way home I can stop at the convenient store with excellent straws.

But they have NO caffeine free Diet Coke.
