Satisfaction Guaranteed or Your Money Back

Current mood: reflective

I can’t sit back and wonder why
It took so long for this to die and I hate it when you fake it
You can’t hide it; you might as well embrace it
So believe me it’s not easy; it seems that something’s telling me
I’m in too deep, and I’, trying to keep
Up above in my head, instead of going under
~ “In Too Deep” by Sum 41

Marcus Aurelius acquired some bling this weekend! He now proudly displays tinted windows and vanity license plates!

I spoil the car as if it were a child – I realize this. Some people go out and buy those fake babies that look real, then carry them around and show them off, pretending that they are real. I don’t do that. So, chalk one point up for my sanity!

My sister and I are heading back to ‘Sin City’ in September. We made our reservations today! 4 days/3 nights in Las Vegas!! This time we are staying “off the strip” for a different experience! Not that anyone knew our last experience – as what happens in Vegas stays there. Still – we will have a new set of rules and a new set of adventures in which to partake!

This weekend I began a new home improvement project. I am tiling the floor of my bedroom. It actually is looking fairly good, considering it is my first solo-tiling experience. Once the floor is finished, I get to go purchase new baseboards. I am actually looking forward to picking those up and painting them! I will be leaving the install to a friend who I know is ultra-excited to install them! I know he is excited because when I asked him, via text, if he wanted to install the baseboards, his response was an enthusiastic: “I can”. I know that’s sometimes emotion gets lost in text messages – but this time, I felt the excitement radiating from my phone.

I also have a new ceiling fan to install – but I am letting my dad do that part. No use giving all the fun to just one person. Let’s spread the wealth around! If you also want to be a part of this thrilling excitement, let me know. I am sure I can find a job. . . I mean, an “activity” for you!

Woo hoo!

PRIVATE NOTE: I miss you! Hope your date night went well this weekend!

CONFIDENTIAL NOTE: We need a good idea!
