Friday Afternoon Freestyles

I am sitting here...

Sitting here at home on a Friday.

I should be happy. I should be doing wide swooping cartwheels allll around my living room.

But I have an appointment to have my gutters cleaned and my roof inspected. I don't have to be here for them to do it, but I have questions. I need a vent replaced because there is a slight roof leak upstairs. I need a deal on that.


I would take the day off, but I'm not. I REALLY want to go to work.

That sounds STRANGE coming out of my mouth, man. It's just that I have a ton of things to do. We have an biannual audit next week and I am trying to get prepared and get my regular work done at the same time. Which means I can't really afford to take much time off right now.

But I have quickly gotten over that. I will just go to work when they finish up.

I have had this coupon since July (through Angie's list)... but I am just slow when it comes to doing certain stuff, like making appointments, etc.  There's been a bunch of stuff my doctor wants me to do, and even she told me "You are so slow!"

I know that, honey. That is something I will be working on FOREVER.

I'm slow, but I will get things done... eventually.

This has been an interesting week.... Just a few random thoughts for you.

1. Uh, what's up with Candidate Mitt Romney?

Look at him. He looks quite presidential, doesn't he? I can't say I know much of what his plan for the country is or what he stands for, though. I raise an eyebrow when people of his own party don't really care much for him. And he is a bit tight lipped about his record as governor of Massachusetts (which says A LOT if you ask me). Tight lipped indeed...

But he has diarrhea of the mouth behind closed doors, don't he? Did you see that little clip of him running his mouth about Obama supporters? Goodness.  You just slapped veterans and the elderly in the face, sir. Not to mention other folks. Wow.

We say what we say and do what we do when we don't think anyone's watching, don't we? Hmm... that's some food for thought for you.

I just want the campaign to be over. Let November get here already. Dang.

2.  I've picked up on something during this campaign season... The Middle class are people who make around $200,000-250,000 per year.

I don't even know anyone who makes that much money.

I don't even make that much per year. I wonder if that puts me in the poverty category.

I don't receive that. Nerp!

3.  My cell phone doesn't ring anymore. It only vibrates. This is my fault, as I have dropped it one too many times. Sigh. Part of me doesn't care. Especially if it means that if I'm not as plugged in electronically.  And that is fine by me.

4. I better cut grass this weekend. If not, my house will be fine forest setting for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, or even Hansel and Gretel.  And we don't want that.

5. What I'm reading right now.... A vampire series...

A Hidden Fire, by Elizabeth Hunter. My cubicle mate CowgirlCre had been raving about this series of books about vampires. Her eyes got so big while talking about it. I thought she would start turning cartwheels and break dancing in the cubicle area, lol.

She loved the character development and story structure, and since I read for style (she reads a whole book in a couple of hours), I thought I would read it. I have to admit, it is the best character development, story structure, and plot development I've ever come across. Very good.

They are very good books and very well written. And this author is taking the route that I want to take with my own books, so that in itself makes me feel good to know that it can be done, with a lot of work, of  course. But it has given me confidence to move forward. That's a good thing.

I am reading other books, more spiritual in nature, but those warrant their own posts... and this post is getting too long.

Song of the Week.  Old school:  Some Stephanie Mills!

Alright, now! If that get your weekend started right, I don't know what will, honey!

That's a good song to clean the house up to! lol

It's got me up and going. Sho nuff.

With that, have a great weekend!

On purpose.
