I'm listening to Robbie Williams. I really don't understand why he isn't a bigger deal in the U.S....he is just so talented.
I'm having a low key weekend. Went to the dog park. Lucy has a boyfriend, Leo. He's a beagle with a capital B. He howls if Lucy plays hard to get which is what she did today. Saw a guy I used to work with...he got fired for lying about some stuff. I tried to say hi but he ignored me. Hey, I didn't fire you asswipe.
It's hot, muggy and the air is full of mosquitoes. Think I'll go to B & N and get some more books...then I'll hibernate.

Yes, I finally got off the hammock and went for a walk yesterday. Well, more like a hike. 2.5 miles to be exact. And most of it was being pulled by my 25 pound Beagle mix who can snap a leash meant for anything less than a St. Bernard. Yes, I finally bought the 100 lbs + extended leash and she hasn't broken that yet.
I'm sore today. Like power lifting and lunging sore. Like moving your house sore.
BTW, Amanda moved to her new house today. She is not as nervous about the neighborhood as I am. I want to put bars on the window.
She got it done prior to the gates of hell opening up in the sky. Not as bad as the night the tornado went through but almost. I finally had to turn Animal Planet on really loud so Lucy would be distracted. Who knew Beagles like to watch other dogs get amputated? Lucy was mesmorized.
Work was not so bad. We had ice cream cake for a birthday. Everyone was in a relaxed mood. Let's see how it goes by Friday.
Oh, and one final thing...Jess Riley found my blog! How exciting is that? I get all fangirl about these kind of things.
Think I'll mention Mike Rowe a lot and see if I can get lucky. Bwahahahaha

I've been wanting to post as myself for awhile now. I love my other blog but it can be a little prohibitive at times.
Anyway, I'm back. Now that I've gotten the hand of blogging maybe I'll keep this up.
I was on vacation this week. Since I'm somewhat broke, I stayed home. And read...a lot. I read the following:
Driving Sideways - Jess Riley - Very funny. The main character had a kidney transplant and decides to go on a road trip in her SATURN. As a Saturn owner I can tell you that would not be a comfortable trip.
Such a Pretty Fat - Jen Lancaster - She's just funny.
Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea - Chelsea Handler - Again, I can only wish I was this funny.
Hot Zone - Kevin Sites- Read the book, watch the DVD. I don't care which side of the fence you are on - this will move you. I truly believe that there is a wonderful good spirit in the human race but the evil, dark side really is there too.
Lean Mean Thirteen - Janet E. - Took me three hours to read it. I still laugh. It's like going home to your wacky NJ family.
Swapping Lives - Janet Green - I like her stuff. Predictable but sweet.
Land of Mango Sunsets - Dorothea Benton Frank - Slow in the beginning. Had to force myself to go on. Then Miriam goes to see her mom the book gets a soul and moves quickly, and made me cry. If you are missing your mom...well, be forewarned. This one will get you.
Life's A Beach - Claire Cook - She wrote Must Love Dogs. It's a love story/finding yourself at 40 story. I can totally see Diane Lane in this one as well.
Ok, I didn't read all of the them this week but I did read them all this month. I'm a little tired of reading...(gasp...I can't believe I said that). So today, Lucy and I are going out for awhile.
Tomorrow is work. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I'm just starting to relax (I'm very tightly wound).
