Goodbye 2008...

Don't let the door hit ya' in the ass on the way out.

I feel like I should have some well thought out profound post for today. But, um yeah, I don't. What you aren't surprised? Me either really, because these are the oh so random things running through my brain today.

How the hell am I possibly going to get up early tomorrow for a long day of work after attending a very fun New Year's Eve party tonight?

This is the first time since the year we got engaged we are going to a New Year's Eve party. Really we moved on New Year's Eve one year. As hubby says, why go out on the night all the amateurs are out drinking and driving? The party tonight is in the neighborhood, no driving required.

Back to the subject of work, besides the normal everyday stuff I have to process all the Christmas returns. Like ASAP. More hours does equal more money. But did I mention the more hours part? Remember I wasn't even really looking for a job when this one dropped in my lap.

On the flip side: I have a job in this crappy economy. And those extra hours are pretty much when I schedule them.

Guess what I got my oldest daughter hooked on over the break? MADE on MTV. Dude, now I want to be MADE!

It occurred to me Monday while simultaneously watching One Tree Hill on the CW and searching MTV online for program listings for when the newest Real World is starting that perhaps this is not normal tv viewing for a thirty *ahem* something mom. Look at me, single handedly throwing off the viewing demographics!




Moving on, let's end our year at the shallow end of the pool. Shall we? Yes, yes, we shall. Cause it's my blog and I can drool if I want too.


Our checker at the grocery store today? Looked just like Zach Gilford aka Matt Saracen from Friday Night Lights. Seriously they could be brothers. I think I'll be shopping at noonish on Wednesday more often.








Seeing him reminds me that I read my favorite Friday Night Lights hottie Taylor Kitsch is rumored to have bought a condo in South Austin. I have a niece looking at places to live in Austin. I told her... um begged her to check out the south side of town.









What?! A woman can dream can't she? I mean seriously who wouldn't enjoy seeing this at the complex pool?
I'll leave you with that little fantasy for the new year. You are welcome!

I had a great comment all ready in my head until you had to go and flash those last three pictures....where was I? Oh, yes. Have a fabulous time at the New Year's Eve party. I would love to go to a big, fun party. But I would also love to stay home in my comfy chair and be asleep by 12:01.

The party was fun. We actually opted to come home just in time to watch the ball drop and then put the kids to bed.
I was up at 7:30am with the little one, but I didn't leave until almost 9:00am for work. It wasn't bad at all. Although I worked a full 8 hours on my feet. It was of my own choice, I could've opted to work half today and half tomorrow. But hubby only had today off and I've already paid the sitter twice this break. Besides I think he needed a FULL day with the girls. If ya' know what I mean.

Wait, did you say something?

Hey this ANTM/Gossip Girl/90210 watching Twilight fan is right with you on messing with demographics. I should sign up for my cougar card pronto.
