Random Thoughts

It's been a crazy week, and we're only 1/2 way through it! Here are some Random Thoughts for you tonight:
  • My first college class at University of Phoenix was last night. I sat in a classroom for 4 hours for the first time in 18 years...ouch. Only 3 years to go! It was interesting. There were some great folks there, and some deadbeats as well. I think all the deadbeats are on my learning team...go figure.
  • The weekend sucked royal ass. My yard sale on Saturday netted $16. Not good. I closed shop about Noon as it was heading up toward 110 on Saturday.
  • Today, I cleaned my house from top to bottom, except the office. That may or may not be on the agenda tomorrow. We shall see.
  • I've been home and out of work for more than 6 weeks now, and I'm going out of my fucking mind.
  • My birthday is next Tuesday and I told my Mom not to send money...I told her to send a gift card to a restaurant, that way I won't spend my birthday gift on a bill. Seriously.
  • I'm keeping Vicki home from school tomorrow because she is coughing up a storm tonight. I'm hoping a day of rest will help, as we have no health insurance right now.
  • Our daughter Samantha will be here with her husband Rodrigo, and my grandson Jayden in 24 more days. I can't wait to see them. It's been too long.
  • Big D's newphew is moving himself and his family out this way in October, and they'll be staying with us until they get on their feet. I hope we're back on our feet by then.
  • A friend of mine heard my cry for help right here on this blog, and got me a copy of MS Office, and I paid him with my good looks. :) Thanks to all who offered me assistance. You cannot know how much it was appreciated. Paula: OpenOffice is really cool, and I thank you for turning me on to that.
  • It's been weeks since I've been out with Big D on the bike. I think I'm jonesing. Maybe he'll take me for a ride on my birthday. I need to go for a ride!
  • We're having a party on Sunday, like we do every year. We're not crazy. We've asked everyone to bring their own alcohol, and something to throw on the grill. We're supplying the grill and the pool. Broke people can have fun too, can't they? I hope people show up. :)
  • I really want that 'M' endorsement on my license this year. I really want my bike up and running, too. I'm a little jealous of BB's bike, but I'm so happy for her, it kind of out-weighs the jealousy thing.
  • I'm also jealous of Dean and Joker for going to HD's 105th Anniversary Celebration in Milwaukee. But I'm hoping they post some great stories and pics when they get back.
  • And Dave, I still have to get to the damned post office. I just hate those people...they're not very happy people over there.

OK...I think that's enough of my twisted, random thoughts for tonight. I hope I didn't offend anyone. This was like free-flow typing for me. No editing involved.

I hope everyone has a great day tomorrow. In the words of the eternally happy Dave Palm, "Happy Thursday!"

Got Xanax?

No worries. You have more important things to take care of at the moment. Take it off your list for now. It will be one less thing to worry about. I can wait.

"Sucking royal ass" kinda sounds fun.

I am glad you got the MS Office. I have been out for a couple of days. Feel bad it wasn't me that helped you out. I was going to put it up for you to download. I'm just too slow!!

Broke people can still have fun as long as they still have a healthy sex drive....otherwise you are screwed.

Dean and Joker...pfffttt...god speed and bring back some quality sh*t.

And, as Lynrd Skynrd sang. "Hard times will come, and they will pass."

Out of all that, I think the FIRST thing you should do,is get Big D to take you for that ride. After that, everything else will fall into place. Trust me!

P.S. YES! Broke people have fun too! Parties that are BYOBF&F are absolutely the greatest! (that's bring your own booze, food and fun!

Jen said...

I keep it in my office! A little chip goes a long way...
People who are offended should lighten up anyway.

Keep your head high..something will work out soon.

Queen B said...

Happy Thursday to you, too :)

Glad you found your class interesting. I am definitely "enjoying" school, as sick as that sounds!

Ugh, not a fun yard sale. Crappy money, hot temps, not good.

I can't wait to hear about Samantha & co.'s visit! That will be so much fun for all, I'm sure.

Big D... get her on the bike! This girl needs a thrill ;)

Paula said...

Ann, Gman's birthday is Tuesday too!! Hope Vicki feels better soon. And I hope life gets easier and better really soon, too!

Have fun at the party! Ehhh, people who aren't loaded, generally throw a better party anyways!

mrs rc said...

I am a bit jealous of Dean & Joker too. They were playing Kid Rock on my drive home from work today and all I could think of was damn them little buggers enjoying themselves in Milwaukee!!!!!

You definitely need to get Big D to take you for a ride. It will soooooo help to get your mind straight, even if its only for a few hours. Every little bit helps!

Ann...I loved your Random Thoughts! Share anytime...it's good to get it out!! Oh and...I was a little jelly of B.B. too...I keep waiting for HD to feel bad for me and offer a free one...LMFAO! Now that's FUNNY!!!!(B.B....seriously happy for you...I'm just soooooooo ready not to have to ride "bitch" anymore!) Why can't there be a money tree or money fairy??? I'm about ready to stand on the corner with the homeless guys with a sign that says...help a sister out...I need a Harley! LOL

Hope you have a great time at your Party!!! Keep smiling and laughing...it helps tons!

Dean "D-Day" said...

A ride should be Number #1 on the list. That's why I take my Mental Health Days and go riding. It puts everything else in perspective.

Kinda wish I was coming to your party. A smaller BYOB party with friends sounds kinda good right now after the craziness of the past couple days. I'm starting to suffer a little overload.

Ann said...

Dean: If you can get here, you're totally invited! That goes for everyone reading this! Come on over!
