Cut Off

June 6th, 2009 Comments off

Yesterday evening we took the Ford Escape to rent a movie and grab dinner. As we were pulling out of the garage, Joe mused on when our free Sirius satellite service would be disconnected as it marked the one year anniversary of purchasing the vehicle and we hadn’t opted to keep the service after the free period.

We got our answer a little later on the way to the restaurant when in the middle of a song the service stopped and a message popped up on the screen to call Sirius to reestablish it. The time? 6:38 pm, which I would say is about the same exact time a year ago we signed the paperwork and took the Escape home. I guess Sirius doesn’t mess around. “No satellite radio for you!”

For my own amusement

My brother asked me to buy him a Domo since his Target is only carrying the Halloween ones. I bought one this morning and e-mailed him the below photo this afternoon…

Earthquake

April 18th, 2008 1 comment

I woke up this morning at 4:40 am with a start and attempted to swat Joe because the bed was swaying and it was annoying me. Except Joe wasn’t in bed; he was still downstairs from having stayed up most of the night playing games and watching tv (he has the day off from work today). I laid really still thinking maybe I somehow shook the bed, but it continued to move on it’s own accord. It was freaky.

So I jumped out of bed, met Joe on his way up the stairs (finally coming to bed), and asked him if he felt that. He had no idea what I was talking about, so I told him what happened. His response? “It was probably from a plane passing overhead”. Uh, I don’t think so, buddy. Planes pass overhead all the time and they don’t make the bed sway. So then he told me it was probably a train. Wrong again, bucko. There’s a difference between the rumbling we sometimes feel from the train and the bed moving back and forth as if something was underneath it. By this point he was exasperated with me because he just wanted to go to sleep so he told me I must have been dreaming. Grrr! I gave up and got ready for work.

The second I got to work someone asked me if I felt the earthquake. I was like, “Thank you! I knew I wasn’t nuts!” I immediately called Joe (and woke him up, muhaha) to gloat. Don’t ever insinuate I’m crazy, hon! I know when something isn’t right. And what an odd feeling that was. I can’t imagine how a big earthquake would feel. I hope to never find out.

Vinyl

April 7th, 2008 3 comments

My husband loves getting magazines and often finds subscriptions for free. Nearly every month there’s a new one arriving at our house.

A month ago Nylon started arriving. I questioned this decision since I’m not into fashion and he told me he thought it was a music mag.

“Records are made from vinyl, not nylon” I informed him and then we laughed our asses off for a few minutes.

We are great fodder for one another’s amusement.

Lottery

March 11th, 2008 2 comments

Me to the hubby the other night: “Your mission this week is to win the lottery. Should your mission fail, I will self destruct.”

The thing is, I don’t need 227 million dollars like that one couple who recently won (and who couldn’t even crack a smile about it; what’s up with that?). No one needs that much money. I’d give a lot of it away to charity. A few million would be enough for us to quit our jobs and live comfortably off the interest. We’d travel, take the kids to cool destinations, and just enjoy life without all the worries that come from not having enough money to do what your heart desires. We’d also get a bigger house so I could have the game room I’ve always wanted (and maybe even an indoor pool).

But the best part? The house would have a detached guest house so I could foster animals for adoption without worrying about the boy’s allergies and asthma. I’d also photograph them for free for the adoption websites so I could help them find permanent homes.

That’s my simple dream.

Now make it happen, Joe.

No pressure or anything.
